Blah nvm this phone is too gay for shoutbox
Hence the us of theterm
If we go by months (which is the metric most use when comparing concurrent players) that number probably lies in the millions.
Snipe there is still a couple million being sold every year, sure minecraft java edition might not be as popular as it used to be, but it's definitely not "dying". There are hundreds of thousands of concurrent players EVERY DAY.
Not java edition though, I would say that most of the copies were sold to five year olds playing on a Nintendo switch or some other console.
Would have been 64 million if not for the 4 million illegals who bought a copy
I heard 60 million copies.
20 million copies the last 6 months is dying then yes, Minecraft is dying
Snipe if selling

Two New Additions

TailzPrime ADMIN posted Jan 25, 18

I could have spent my vacation working on my house but instead I got sucked into Gladius.


First up I revisited Dittmanns' beautiful Coleseum build.  I've tweaked the armor to be full P4 and I also added in commands to create random item chests.  The arena still uses 1.8 mechanics, so let us know what you think about keeping that or not.  I see this being an arena for God battles, we'd like you input on that as well.  My next plans for this arena will be to create player switchable option for this, being either a team death match session or a battle royale type thing where it's everyone for themselves.  After all I've done on the spleef arena that shouldn't be too hard, it will just take time.

Coloseum Arena

Speaking of the Spleef arena, I've been working on it for the last couple of days and it is now currently open and in Beta phase testing.  I've already fixed a couple things players have mentioned, like people logging out and breakable blocks. I'm sure there will be more bugs to be found, just keep a list for me.  The playing field adjust slightly according to how many players join in.  Everyone seems to be enjoying it though so that's a win for all of us!  I was honestly surprised at how much fun I found it to be when I actually got to play.

Thanks again to Dittmanns for the Coleseum Arena and Loomis & Xipheus for the Spleef Arena, they are both gorgeous.

Y'all be sure to check out the new additions and have fun!!

We've had some lag issues recently, so I got us a new server a few days ago. I'm still working on it, but it's at a good state now and is almost ready for the transfer.

There will be no reset this time, as there is no need for it. This also means there will be no ban forgiveness.

The IP will change (I will update the URL to match the new IP, but it may take a few hours to update). I will also have to stop the server for a few hours (during this time, I will put up a new, blank server for everyone to play around on). These are the only changes players should notice.

Gladius' New Year's resolution is to reduce lag as much as possible :)

Build Contest Thumb


Alright, it's Christmas time, lots of y'all are going to be out of school, and we haven't done a build contest in quite a while.  So to give everyone something to do with their time we are going to run a build contest.  Details can be found here. The deadline will be 11:59 CST on Christmas Adam.  (Christmas Adam comes before Christmas Eve, i.e., Sat Dec 23rd.)


This one is going to be pretty simple.  Build and decorate a Christmas Tree.  Can be any size, made out of any material, but it needs to at least resemble a Christmas Tree.  This will be limited to the survival world, no creative builds allowed. Also due by the end of Christmas Adam. Go here to sign up.


This went pretty well last year and if I can get some other staff to help me and if y'all want to participate again, we will certainly do this again this year.  If you want to participate please comment in the thread I have made for it in the events section of the forums. Signups will have a 1 week window (must be registered by Dec 15th) and then you will be assigned your recipient to gift to. Merry Christmas!
