Is Minecraft Down?

We've all experienced it, during our time in Minecraft. Instead of seeing people commenting in the Shoutbox and in the forums explaining their anger about Minecraft being down. However, there is a website which does literally inform you if Minecraft is down during that time, with 5 different sections to explain it.

These 5 sections are:

1| Minecraft.net
2| Minecraft Logins
3| Minecraft Multiplayer Sessions
4| Mojang Accounts Website
5| Mojang Accounts Login
If a category is live and online, it will be represented with a green dot, however, if it is represented by a red dot, then it means that it is down and not online during that time. Here is a image showing you what it would look like:



As you...
New world for Minecraft 1.3

We will create a whole new world to explore for the latest update, Minecraft 1.3. This world will be set as our first world when the protection and spawn is finished. Mind that our oldest world, from Minecraft Beta 1.8, which is our secondary world (Not our current main one) will be deleted as a new world will be built upon!

Tomorrow (Friday) the server will be going under maintenance, estimated 1 PM CEST; to update the server stability and performance of 1.3. At this point the new world will be created (But non-accessable during a few days, to fix a few important things before we releases it to our players).

This will give our players a chance to explore the new things in the latest update in Minecraft. Reminder, that our current world, will still be playable, and can easily be accessed through in-game portals!


EDIT: Server is now updated and a new world has been added. We will post more information when the new world is open for the public.
