On July 23, 2012 I started MagicaCraft not knowing what it would become. At the time servers were a lot smaller and way less competitive. There were no networks, no hubs, just standalone servers. I spent a few days working on the server then opened it publicly. Three months later MagicaCraft was the largest and number one server in the world without any advertising involved. This is because of its original ideas and content never seen on any other servers.

It's hard for me to believe that I have been running this server for two entire years with little outside help. Most issues the server had I figured out and fixed myself to make the server's experience almost seamless. There is a crazy amount of work I have done behind the server to keep it running for this long. I have done everything from writing complex plugins in order to make the server more entertaining to simply making backups to ensure you will still have your inventory the next time you log in. This server would not be what is if it wasn't for the community.

MagicaCraft has been keeping a steady average of around 30 players but the operation costs of the server exceed the income it receives. As I said when I released MagicaCraft 3.0, this was my last attempt to get players on again and it didn't work out too well. Today I planned on shutting down the server and quitting Minecraft forever. However, a few days ago a Developer came to me asking with a ton of ideas to improve MagicaCraft and bring it back to its...

This week MagicaCraft has implemented a classes system for Mage, Assassin, and Archer. Each of them features a unique set of powers that can be used for their class.

Mages are able to cast spells using the /cast (or /c) command. To see what spells you have type /cast list, and cast with /cast <spell name.>

Assassins are able to climb walls and other obstacles by holding shift and right-clicking a block.

Finally, Archers have a series of special arrows which can be selected using the /arrow or /arrows command. This includes:
Multi Arrow - Fires multiple arrows at once
Poison Arrow - Poisons your opponent when hit
Blinding Arrow - Blinds your opponent when hit
Life Steal Arrow - Drain HP from your target based on the damage you deal
Exploding Arrow - Explodes the arrow on impact
Blink Arrow - Teleports you to the landing location of the arrow
Wither Arrow - Fires a wither skull at your opponent

Warrior abilities and some additional abilities for the other classes will be released next

P.S. This update was released on Friday I just didn't have time to post this until today.

Overview and History of MagicaCraft
The next update of MagicaCraft will be the biggest and most in depth update we have ever had. The staff and I have been planning and preparing this update for over 6 weeks and it is almost here.

For the majority of MagicaCraft I have been limited with what I can add to the server due to available public plugins. Originally, I mixed up a bunch of plugins and made a pretty solid 1.0 classes system. This improvised setup required several unique plugins to function which meant it broke a lot and was pretty buggy. For a while this is what the server was and I managed to get to the top of server lists with over 250 players online. MagicaCraft stayed with the same classes system for over a year and eventually got changed in the 2.0 update.

After I learned a fair amount of Java I started writing plugins to add more custom features to the server. Eventually, I made the MagicaClasses plugin which was my biggest project at the time. It took 2 weeks and 2,000 lines of code to complete. There were a few minor bugs with the plugin but the main issue I noticed was the inconvenience it had. I considered some modifications to improve the Classes plugin but couldn't find a suitable solution. For the new 3.0 update I decided to completely scrap the old classes system and rewrite the current one based on the most popular class ideas.

I have always...
