    Dear players,

    Over the past few months, Mojang has approved of our network. Obtaining this approval was not easy - we had to constantly change our servers in order to comply with yet another abstract request for modification. We also had to let the majority of our development team go as a result. This strive for Mojang’s approval has caused us to focus on the wrong things. For example, we spent hours making certain pets run at the same speed as normal players. How ridiculous! Instead, we want to focus on you, the players, to ensure that you enjoy your time on PrimeMC.

    A few weeks ago, we tested a new monetization system that was live on the network for under a week until we removed it in order to improve it further. Our theory is that Mojang did not like this new system which is why they began disapproving of our wonderful server, adding us to what you might know as the “black list” without any notification, warning, or request for clarification. As one of the only servers that remained approved by Mojang for so long, we wish they were not this quick to add us to their “black list.”

    You, the players, are unable to normally connect to unapproved/blocked servers unless the server administrators change a few things on their end. We, as a team whose priority is to keep the server online, accessible, and enjoyable for you all, made these necessary changes. We will continue to make changes to ensure your ability to connect to the server of your choice.

    It is important to note that you will always be able to play on our server. Time and money spent on PrimeMC is an investment, not a gamble.

    Over the next few weeks, we will be working on a handful of new content updates, including PrimeMC’s own custom modpack. This modpack will allow us to implement even cooler things and will guarantee everyone’s easy access to PrimeMC. This project may even completely rid the server of cheaters! More information will be given on this soon.

    On another note, we just launched a massive 65% off holiday sale on all packages. Now is a great time to support our server and get the most bang for your buck!

    If you have any questions or concerns, I urge you to contact me directly at alex@primemc.org.

    Sincerely,
    Alex (trkey)

    Excited about the modpack! Will it be online on the server, or just a modpack that you can download to play? What's the new monetization system? My internet was down a few weeks ago.

    Kinda confused, is the server staying off the blacklist meaning players can still join through things like LabyMod & stuff? Or will it be to the point where you have to use PrimeMC's client?

    OMG I WAS #10 COMMENT IM BUZZING... *Sarcasm* Can't believe people are buzzing about the #11th comment, not giving any examples *cough* *look one post below*

    Oh the hypocrisy of EULA! Their only way to benefit themselves so they can earn the most money. Let's hope Prime can be tough during this.

    Please add something new to do in Skyblock... I know it isn't easy to be running servers with all the needs and wants of players, but after making the modpack or monetization system that will abolish John Cena, invest some time into Skyblock so it doesn't keep on dying.

    Does this mean we need to install mods to play Prime?
