    Hi all! My name is Saito and I’d like to introduce myself in this announcement and let everyone know what’s going on with OPBlocks. Essentially I will be taking over management / ownership of OPBlocks after purchasing the server from Alex (trkey). Alex and I have been good friends for several years now, and recently we were discussing how much he wanted to see OPB succeed, but that he just couldn’t handle the workload with his other networks too…


    That’s where I come in :)


    So who are you?

    As said my name is Saito! I’ve been playing Minecraft since 2010 and I’ve owned my own servers since 2013. At one point I owned one of the largest and most successful networks in the world, so you can rest assured that I have the experience needed to handle OPB with the love, attention, and technical awareness it deserves. I’ve got a huge vision for where we can go with your help, and more to come on that later in this post.


    What can we expect to change?

    Right off the bat… nothing! My primary goal right now is to learn everything I can about your community and integrate myself with the current staff and players. I want to get to know everyone. I want to get to know the history of the server. I want to know your ideas, suggestions, your complaints, your criticism, and everything else in between. To do this I won’t be changing things up right away until I feel confident I can take OPB in the right direction. My goals are community centered above all else because servers are like a second home to the player, and I want it to feel comfortable and original when we do begin to make changes.


    What sorts of good things are in store for OPB?

    I’m so glad you asked ;) The best things I’m bringing to the table are development, investment, and attention. My partner Hihi will be joining us on the team as a co-owner, and he will also be our full time developer. This means you’ll have someone working on OPB full time to give it the attention it deserves. On top of that we absolutely intend to get paid advertising to boost the player counts. As some of you may know this can be very expensive, and as part of our commitment to the community we will have advertising ready for the very first reset we perform. We hope this pleases everyone and helps to earn your trust, because above all else we want the community to grow and be happy. I will also be bringing 6+ years worth of custom code to OPB if you guys want some of the features we have developed for our other servers. This includes a custom anti cheat, awesome Prison features, and so much more. We will only add these things after polling the community and getting your feedback, because like I said, this is about you and what you want.


    Can we hear from the co-owner?

    Hi guys, I'm hihi, and as Saito mentioned I will be working on the development side of things and I’m hoping to get some awesome and fun unique content into the game! Saito and I have worked together for many years and we both have the same goal in mind. If you have any suggestions on new content, bug fixes, or even a hello, feel free to message me on Discord at any time!


    Anything else we should know?

    That’s pretty much it friends! Please ask me any questions you have in the comments below, or feel free to reach out to me via PM over Discord. I’ll be very active on Discord from here on out, as this is pretty much my full time job. My ultimate goal for OPB in the short term future is to get it back to 400 players online, and to work towards that it will require the efforts of everyone, not just me and developers and staff, but all of you too. I really believe we can make OPB great again with your help!

    Thank you all for reading :D

    I hope to see you in game! No offense to trkey, but he didn't give a rats butt about this server. It became just a money grab. Maybe I didn't read closely enough, but what other servers did you own?Looking forward to seeing your improvements for this server.
    See you soon, Rob

    Hi Rob! You'll definitely see me in game. I'm online every single day in both Discord and the server.

    I don't want to mention the names of the networks since that would be giving out competitive server IPs, but one of them was a large classic game + mini game network that peaked 3000 players in 2014. The other was a dedicated Factions network that peaked 700 players in 2017.

    Look forward to seeing you as well, feel free to reach out to me over Discord anytime :)

    Your email was likely in the database when we sent out a message to all users. Bans will most likely be reset soon if you're interested in playing again under the new ownership :)

    Sucks tho because I used to have CandyLord on the other server before this OPBlocks and I got muncher cause it was free right, and apparently it counted towards me not being able to carry over my rank

    It is sad that trkey left, but at the same time this leaves a lot to look forward to in the future. I just hope it all works out for the best and improves the quality of the server for everyone to enjoy.
