Minecraft Vanilla Server

If you don't follow our Twitter or Facebook pages, and have been ignoring our Discord chat as well, you might have missed the news that we have had a Vanilla Cooperative (No-Grief) server up and running for quite a while now.  It is whitelisted, so you'll have to contact us to get access. 3 new players have been added recently, maybe it's time you join us as well!

Also in other news, I've decided to temporarily turn off all other pwn9 servers. They needed some tender loving care and need to be updated (They were in the 1.8 versions!), So Vanilla is the only server up for right now until things are fixed.

And seriously, you should join our Discord server already! It's is replacing our IRC/Mumble/Forums, you won't need any other VoIP software (TeamSpeak, Ventrilo, Skype, Mumble), or any other group chat software (IRC).  Besides our Pwn9 server, there are tons of other great public servers you can join too, mainly gamer oriented servers, check them out at https://www.discordservers.com/

For both the Vanilla server and Discord server, you can see information about both on the sidebar to your right ->

Pwn9 in Discord

Literally - Pwn9 admins Sage and Dreamphreak found and set up a Pwn9 server on Discord:  https://discordapp.com/

It's similar to slack but designed for gamers, with voice channels built-in.  Say goodbye to mumble, skype, teamspeak..  say goodbye to forums...  discord does it all for us. It's even intergrated into our IRC and minecraft servers.

We'll be announcing more about this as we figure out the plan but the idea is to make this the new platform from which to chat, discuss and game with our friends.

Get the app (or use your browser) - then ask a Pwn9 Admin for an invite link!



Minecraft 1.9 - The Combat Update is now released!

It's finally here, the Minecraft 1.9 update: official announcement here: https://mojang.com/2016/02/minecraft-19-combat-update/

Lots of new and exciting features in the vanilla version of the game, new blocks, new mob, combat mechanics and a whole lot more.  Cool stuff, so what does this mean for Pwn9.  Absolutely nothing for now, we'll be remaining on Minecraft 1.8 (Spigot based server) for the forseable future, as far as I know.  There has been little talk about minecraft development for Pwn9 for quite some time now, but maybe with some community prompting the team could put something together.

Pwn9 presents "Invasion" - A new mini server event!

Let the carnage begin!

Once upon a time in a minecraft far far away, there was a mod called "Invasion" that Pwn9'ers liked to play. Well, it is back and it's been tested and now we'd like to try having a regular invasion event.  The first invasion server event tentatively will be Saturday, Dec 26th @ 9PM EST.  (Subject to change based on your feedback).

GuildWars 2: Heart of Thorns Expansion is live!

On friday October 23rd, Arena Net released the Heart of Thorns expansion for Guild Wars 2.  While I have not personally been able to get online in the 2 days since due to internet problems, I'm excited to get on soon and experience the new content and the renewed excitement for the game amongst gamers from the Pwn9 community.  Players like Twilight Rose, King, Eviltower, Spikey, Cryptix, Scytale, Chess, and Bloodworn - and perhaps others who never really got into the game but have it, might consider jumping back in.  We've got the makings of a pretty active clan in BAMF right now and potentially could band together to do some of the new content like raids as a guild!

Minecon 2015 Part 1

So Minecon has come, and passed us by (I missed seeing it live again, sadly) dropping new features, details, and mechanics on us to either hate, love or study. The official title for the 1.9 update, is The Combat Update (originallity is highly overrated.) One of the features that grabbed my attention probably the most out of this update (Hey! It looks fun!) was their snippet unveil of:

               Dual Wielding.

Who is interested in being a Pwn9 Blogger?

In an effort to rethink how this website works, less game-centered and less forum-centered, we've looked at some things we can refocus on like Twitch streams and user blogs.  Currently we have a handful of admins who can write blogs..   recent blogs are available here:  http://www.pwn9.com/blog

If you might be interested in writing blogs, simply reply to my blog post here with an "I'm interested" and we'll add you on as a Blogger.

Special blogger perks include a user badge and the ability to post blogs to the blogs page.. and if your blog receives enough up votes (thinking 5 or 10) we'll promote your post to the front page.
