Today we are excited to announce the 2017 MCDrugs reset!
Here's a quick summary if you don't feel like reading the entire post:
In three weeks, on Friday, May 12, at around 7PM CST, MCDrugs will have a complete reset, as we normally do anually. Pretty much everything is resetting, including the map, money, drug/cop ranks, points, etc. There are a couple things that you won't lose if you have them now, such as staff ranks (helper and above) and donator ranks, which will be returned within the first day (or couple of days if the demand is high) of the reset. The reset is not all loss, though. There will be a completely new spawn, which many of the staff have been working hard on for months. There are also many new features that we've been waiting to implement, but could not mid-map. There will be preview threads of new features every day up until the reset.
Before the info about the reset, I'd like to explain something new that was just added: A playtime counter. Do /onlinetime ingame to see your playtime (/onlinetime top to see the top players). This counts your playtime on MCDrugs and the creative server. This function plays a part in something we'll be doing over the next month, up until the map reset. The top 25 players with the most playtime from now until May 11 will get a spot in the museum in spawn (where prestige plinths and master prestige NPCs will be found next map), with their head and name, as the Most Dedicated Pre-Wipe Players.
This is the three week notice of the annual MCDrugs reset. Last year's reset was on Friday, May 13. We chose to do it as close to a year as we could, while keeping it on a Friday, and picked May 12, three weeks from today.
All progress will be reset. This means your money, drug/cop rank, mcMMO stats, etc. will be set back to the start. Points are also being reset, so if you were saving up for a rank, get it before the 11th! We believe it is necessary to do these resets every year to keep big factions from dominating the server; giving a clean, fair start for everyone. We are looking forward to the new dynamics that will be created at the start of the new map.
As usual, if you purchased a donator rank at any time on MCDrugs, you will get it on the new map. The same goes for any staff rank, including helper. We are not giving police ranks back, because there is a new system for police next map, we will preview a bit later, before the reset.
As for other donator perks and items, consumables like keys, boosters, pre-built bases, etc. were one time use, and will not be redeemable after the reset.
We have many new features that will be revealed on the new map. This includes a whole new spawn with a new style, much more to do in spawn, more ways to make money, and much, much more! We will be showing some previews of new things in the following three weeks, so keep an eye out for those on the forums.
If you have any questions at all about how the reset will work, please feel free to ask in the comments of this thread.
