I know its been slow around here lately, I've been pretty busy! I do have a lot of good news though in terms of updates! We are planning a big CoD update aiming for release next Friday (12th) Slight delay - expect next Wednesday! along with a big prison update and other minor things around the network!
- 1.8 -
The 1.8 update for servers is out. A lot of stuff broke in it and it is rather unstable. We will be testing PRISON on the full 1.8 update (it is offline as I am writing this for updates) Other servers update pending.
- Zombies -
As I mentioned above, there will be an update for it releasing next Friday. Some things of this update include:
- Overhaul on donor ranks (more info soon)
- Leveling / EXP system (+level displayed in chat)
- New spawn
- New maps
- Chat reformat just a bit
- Advance Zombies Mode ( :O - more info pending -)
- and more...
We are hoping this update will go over smooth and with minimal bugs (*crosses fingers that leveling data infrastructure is good*) Maybe you will see your favorite Youtubers playing on the update too!
- Prison -
Prison is being completely redone. I have handed off the reigns of prison to King, he is prison's "Head Admin" to say. He will be responsible for many of the ideas and general things in new prison! Many many things are planned to be included in this update - see King's forum post. Send your suggestions to him!
- Assassins -
It's been down for a while, we know. The 1.8 hack (not even full 1.8!) broke it VERY bad to the point where it was not worth our time and effort to fix (It didn't get too many donors either.) We will not be closing Assassins forever though! We have massive plans for it - it might be so massive that we may release it as its own network separate from ECB (It'll still have a portal though!) Release is unknown. Depends a bit on how well the leveling is handled on CoD so we can see if we can use that data storing infrastructure! We'd like to see it fully up early 2015.
- The Heist -
Promises have been broken here, we are terribly sorry guys! We do have the game, it is "finished" (It's a bit buggy - but not terrible) The game is very advance gameplay wise and server infrastructure wise. It will cost us a lot of time and money just to get the proper hardware and to properly automate it. (Not to mention getting it popular!) We believe it is a big risk - and we really want to take that risk - but lately ECB has been a bit down on numbers and donors (My fault entirely) and I would like to re-build ECB back to a ~250 player weekday glory before taking such a risk. Again, terribly sorry for delays on it as I know a lot of you were looking forward to it.
- Other servers -
Once ECB is back settled at a higher player count, we will be looking into adding some other more generic games to ECB (such as The Bridges or Paintball) and giving them global donor rank perks (As in donate on any major ECB server and get the single donor rank on these game servers - like Hub) They will just be there for your entertainment!
Thanks for reading! Remember to send any prison suggestions you have to King, remember to vote daily, and remember to donate if you love the server and want to see it prosper!
