    Update: Let us know how we're doing by submitting feedback straight to our devs! https://forms.gle/6AoR3D87GFW8ah4X7

    Hi everyone,

    I am very excited to surprise you all with the launch of OPBlocks V8. Over the course of the last two months, our team has been working extremely hard on bringing you a unique new Prison experience - and we cannot wait to show you what we have been in store!

    In this post, we will be sharing all the ins and outs of today’s reset - so you can jump right in and play our brand new server, along with all other members of the community. Let’s get started!

    Reset Information
    First and foremost, we will cover some of the essentials on this reset. Different from previous resets, is that we have rebuilt OPBlocks from the ground up. This means that we are not taking any of the previous setups and “improving” them. We have re-written everything. It’s the first time this has happened since the start of the server.

    Our new server is exclusively focusing on OP Prison. The Hardcore Prison from previous seasons is completely discontinued and will cease to exist going forward. Players who made any purchases on Hardcore Prison for items which are permanent (such as ranks and kits), can qualify for compensation by submitting a purchase report. This can be done via the link here.

    There is a bright future ahead of us, so creating a stable base was necessary to support our plans of upcoming updates. A lot of thought has gone into this new structure. Once you log onto the new network, you’ll feel that everything is much more polished, streamlined and easier to navigate. Our style has changed to be more professional, and we have invested an extensive amount of time on in-game documentation. We want everyone to understand what we have to offer, and hope to make playing as fun and easy as possible.

    Now, there are a few things which I would like to highlight for today’s reset. The first of which - is an update to the ranking system. After that, we will share some details of our exciting new features.

    Ranks Update (& other store purchases)
    To keep oversight and to continue offering well-balances store packages, we have decided to decrease our ranks offering from 11 ranks to 6 ranks, meaning that Gobbler, Hoarder, Candy Prince, Candy Warrior, Candy God and Candy Titan will now cease to exist. The new ranks ladder is therefore as follows:
    • Muncher Rank ($10)
    • Chomper Rank ($20)
    • Destroyer Rank ($30)
    • CandyLord Rank ($50)
    • CandyKing Rank ($100)
    • CandyLegend Rank ($150)
    All players who have previously held one of these discontinued ranks have been upgraded to the next available one - so nobody is losing out on any perks. This process of upgrades will be done in the order listed below:
    • Gobbler → Chomper
    • Hoarder → Destroyer
    • Candy Prince → CandyLord
    • Candy Warrior → CandyKing
    • Candy God → CandyLegend
    • Candy Titan → CandyLegend
    Players may be eligible for compensation on other items they have purchased as well, as long as the which they made is an item intended to be permanent and not a consumable. A permanent kit or perk permission is a good example of this. A crate key is not. If this applies to your case, please don’t hesitate to reach out and our team will take care of you.

    We have an exciting new offering of items available on our store, from Titles to Crate Keys, and from Farms to Plot Mines - so be sure to have a look. To celebrate the reset, we are also holding a limited-time 50% SALE!

    Server Menu
    Moving on, the next item which we would like to discuss is our brand-new server menu system. By typing /menu in the chat, players will be presented with a fancy new GUI in which practically every server related action is possible. Players can visit warps, spawn kits, spend their credits and launch cosmetics, but also view help and check the progress of their mining performance - we have an extremely useful new menu which shows exactly how far you have advanced into the Prison mining ladder!

    The GUI also links into other useful server features, such as your virtual chests and the server’s auction house, where items are up for sale. For veterans and newcomers alike, this is the new go-to command to find your way around the Prison.

    Balance Changes
    This revamp, significant changes to the balances system, which no longer focus on just the dollar and eToken currencies. We will cover them one-by-one below:
    • Dollars: Dollars remain to be the main currency and fulfil the same purpose as on the previous network. They can be spent on ranking up, prestiging, purchasing items from the shop, participating in the lottery and more.

    • eTokens: eTokens have shifted in purpose and now only really do what the “e” stands for in eTokens: Enchantments. We have created a nifty new GUI in which you can purchase all kinds of new enchantments (more info below), and we have also increased the amount of ways in which you can receive eTokens (such as through lucky crates).

    • Credits: Credits is the new premium currency on the server and can be seen as the replacement for old eTokens. Using credits, players can purchase seeds for their farms, as well as exclusive other items which are only available in the credit shop. Credits can only be earned in-game and are not for offer on the store (except for crate keys).
    Player Shops
    We love our player-run economy, and to support it even more - we are introducing a brand-new update to ChestShops labeled as Player Shops. This is a revolutionary new system which makes it easy to create, manage, and search for items that other players are offering. All shops are integrated through an easy and intuitive new GUI, so you don’t even physically have to visit anybody’s shop. Lots of players use these to create Profit shops (with prices that beat the ones of the mines), so make sure you search for the best deals!

    Collectibles
    We have updated the server with a vast amount of new collectibles. Whilst playing, you may stumble upon new mining goals or lucky crates. With the luck on your side, these might spawn in new keys or other valuable server items! We would like to make mining more fun, and offering these random items is just one of our ways to encourage more gameplay!

    Enchantments
    We already quickly mentioned eTokens before, but this topic is worth another quick highlight. The team has worked extremely hard on entirely re-coding the server’s enchantment system, bringing several new features into the game and a selection of new custom enchants. By collecting eTokens, you can save up to purchase unique upgrades from the Enchantment NPC - such as Explosives - and increase the enchantment levels above what is normally possible in our kits.

    We are constantly adding new custom enchantments, so be on the lookout for more updates regarding this soon!

    Candies
    As previously announced, our flagship feature has received some significant changes - and with the launch of our revamp the candy game is even stronger than ever! We have introduced 15 brand new candy types, packing awesome new effects, along with new ways to achieve candy through creating candy farms. Each player receives a small candy farm for free, which can be upgraded and used to plant seeds from the credit shop.

    For more information, be sure to check out our previous announcement here.

    Daily Challenges
    Along with Candies, the implementation of Daily Challenges is also one for the books! This feature replaces the existing Missions and Quest Books offering, but in turn provides an exciting new way to gain daily server rewards. Each day, players can visit the Challenges NPC for a fresh set of five (actually interesting) challenges, in a difficulty of their choosing. And once completed, they earn a great reward!

    To learn more about Daily Challenges, be sure to visit our previous announcement here.

    Final Note
    We hope that you are all as excited as we are about the launch of our new network. The team has worked extremely hard to turn this project into reality, and over the coming days we are finalizing on some of the features that are still in progress. We will update you here once those are live. Now that the server is online, we do expect a few bumps here and there - but overall things should be smooth sailing. Please bear with us as we try to get everything as smooth and as bug-free as possible!

    I look forward speaking to you all very soon!

    Thanks,
    Jesse

    so far the server's had 3 times where it needed to go down for maintenance, and it's only been up for what 3 days now? sounds like it's still rather buggy and not worth coming on yet, maybe not at all hearing about the ranks thing.

    From the first 5 minutes on I see that lots of the features feels like prime and there seems to be no individuality.

    3/10 right now for me.
    Yeesh

    Edit: Most of the features
