Hello there! Welcome to the new ElysiumRP website! This is where you'll find the Forums, Lore, Ban Appeals, Applications, the Donation Store, and more! Hopefully you've already seen the short little teaser trailer that I made. If you haven't, you can check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A01EAOe6YKI
The new Elysium will launch Thursday December 20th! The new ip will be: 'mc.elysiumrp.co'. In this post, I will explain everything and hopefully answer all of the questions that you may have. Sammo and I have been working on this project for months now. We make a great team together and we are very much on the same page about what's best for Elysium. Sammo has been the mastermind behind most of what you will see on the server. Ranging from Lore, to Roleplay Areas, to setting up the new server, Sammo has been the one to do all this. I do however have the most time to spend on Elysium in the future, and that is why I will be stepping in as the new owner of ElysiumRP, so that I can dedicate my time to introducing new things and updates. I don't see much changing, other than the fact that you might hear some of the announcements from me from now on.
For a while it has been apparent that Elysium needed something new and refreshing. And due to unfortunate circumstances, we were forced to look for a new host. Only updating the server wouldn't be enough and because of our host, it wasn't even possible; we had no access to any of the files of Elysium. This is why we needed to rethink how we wanted Elysium to be as a server. It is a very common thing for survival servers to start a new world every once in a while, but we understand that Elysium holds many memories, experiences and emotions. This is why, two years ago, Elysium introduced a new world, Fei, and kept the old world, Aria. Although this was nice, because we didn't have to let go of our fond memories of Aria, it still brought along some fundemental problems, such as the fact that Towny was now split up into two separate worlds and the fact that some plugins stopped working. This made things confusing and sometimes frustrating. For this server update, we simply didn't want to go down the same path, and even if we did, it wouldn't have been possible because of our old host. Our goal with this update, was to bring back the formula that once made Elysium such a great server, but with a new refreshing touch.
That is all for now. Through questions of players we will probably be able to release more information over the coming week. See you next thursday!
