    Hey Arcadians,

    This announcement is on the more serious side of things as it is informing you of what our plans for the month ahead.

    First of all, I'd like to apologize for going a bit quiet in the past few months. You guys have had plenty to say about the way things are going and a few of our updates, and it might have seemed like we were tucking our heads in the sand or popping off to the pub to avoid issues at hand with the network.

    In reality, we've been deep in discussion as a team, trying to figure out what is best for Arcadian. We came to the conclusion that we’ve been so focused on server resets and the determination to them all up to a set standard that we have neglected the additional issues within the network, so we've been making a big change or two for the betterment of the server and its amazing community.

    While many of you have liked - even loved - our resets and recent updates, it's fair to say that some of them have had their problems. Regardless of whether you felt they were complete, we underestimated how much of our focus they would take up, and we've neglected other updates as a result so we’re going to fix that.

    Resets take up a huge amount of development time, leading to a sparse release schedule and less player happiness. It's clear that regular updates and fixes are something that makes Arcadian, Arcadian. The server feels less alive without them. For this reason, we are suspending reset development on all server resets for the remaining time in the month and next month.

    For the next fourteen days, the entire staff team will be focusing on finding bugs and community suggestions for the development team to resolve and implement. If you want a bug resolved or a suggestion added, now is the time to report and suggest it.

    Maintaining our standards

    Okay, now for the big one. For the foreseeable future, the Administration team here at Arcadian will be working towards delivering the updates that have been promised in the past, along with bug fixes and overall improving community satisfaction. They will be finishing updates that feel unfinished and improving the core of the gameplay across our servers. Think content reworks rather than new content, and continuations of old loved content rather than new ones. Simply put, we want to pause for a moment and focus on maintaining our network standards and community satisfaction.

    We now reach a bit of a uncertainty. In an ideal world, we'd show you a list of all of the updates we plan on doing, along with their completion and release dates. BUT that would only create more expectation, and add to the frustration rather than deduct from it.

    Instead, we'd like to list 10 updates/fixes that we're actively working on or researching. There are no dates attached: just reassurance that we're looking at these right now, and that they'll be released only when they're ready and right for Arcadian:

    1. Anti Cheat rework / tweaks
    2. KitPvP kit adjustments and fixes
    3. Networkwide friends system
    4. General quality of live fixes
    5. Performance updates and lag fixes
    6. Entire rework of Mob Arena
    7. AD reward claiming and coupons
    8. Reworking punishment system to be more accurate
    9. Mine reworks and fixes
    10. Custom enchant adjustments and fixes

    What's next?


    Now that all the maintenance of Arcadian is planned, we will be launching an online survey that lists everything we consider good for the network and previously promised, announced or unfinished. We will then ask you to prioritize them. Is a bunch of PvP reworks more important than an Anti Cheat Rework? Tell us, and we will use the results to prioritize the updates that you want and build a backlog of updates to work on.

    On a personal note, I know these changes and hault of server reset development seem crazy and out of nowhere, but – having spent so much time reading your feedback both in-game and on the forums and I'm convinced that it's the right direction for Arcadian to go. Now it's your turn to tell us whether you agree in the comments below. I will be reading each and every comment and taking them into consideration for the planning of the month ahead.

    Thank you for being such a committed and passionate bunch of players. We're extremely lucky to have you on our network.

    It's great to see that all the bugs are being given time to resolve and all the suggestions are going to be put in place (depending of if they are needed)! Hype!

    Please allow us to keep store bought titles. It's not a game changing thing and it is technically 'cosmetic' so there's no reason for us to pay for them and lose them.

    Please suggest what you would like to see here: https://forums.arcadianmc.com/forums/server-suggestions.15/
    I recommend a /titles GUI with clickable options for purchased titles, won titles and more.

    Different titles change throughout different seasons, so it would be hard to do that.
