Good morning!

Just to make sure that everyone is on the same page, this post will explain a little more about our bans reset. As I'm sure you guys have read in the previous post, the bans have been reset, but not 100%. If you have committed any act of chargeback or any other extreme serious offense, your ban will carry over to the new server. Any mutes, warnings, kicks, etc you may have received will also be reset. This does not mean that we cannot look back at the old bans/warnings/mutes/etc for staff applications, etc. We will keep the old records on hand. This also does not mean you are exempt in any way from being punished again. Our rules and punishments will stay the same from what they were previously. This means any hacking of any kind will receive a permanent ban.

Thank you!

Good afternoon everyone,

I'd like to preface this by encouraging you to read this entire post, there are a lot of important details.

I would like to apologize for the lack of updates lately, both dukesmart and I have been so extremely busy with our obligations in the real world. We know the server has decreased in quality since the rushed 1.9 updates. Largely, this is due to an issue within Minecraft itself involving entity unloading, which has caused significant performance issues.

Because creative is our most popular server, it only makes sense that we dedicate much of our time to it. As such, dukesmart, myself, and the staff have decided to cut all servers but creative. All of this will take place in approximately 1 week. From then on, we will be a creative only server.

If you are mostly a creative player, this will be a very positive thing for you because we have been working on many new features for creative and will have more time to work on creative since...

Good morning everyone,

Today, we are publishing the world files for the Main server, as requested by several players, because the server will likely be closed for an extended period of time. Please note that the world files are very large, and may take a long time to download. (preferred): (alternate): (preferred): (alternate): (preferred): (alternate):

Hey everyone,

We've decided to extend the deadline for the build competition to next Saturday, April 23! This is mainly because of repeated downtime we've had with the event. This should surely compensate for the time lost because of that.

Now you have extra time to refine your build!

Ruinscraft has been updated to Minecraft 1.9! Our newest features on our server should be coming out soon. Please be patient with us for now.

EDIT: We have temporarily closed the Main server, due to discontinued plugin support. We are searching for a replacement, and we will launch Main again as soon as possible.
EDIT 2: After receiving many complaints about the new 1.9 PvP system, we have installed a plugin that removes the 1.9 PvP system and re-adds the 1.8 PvP system. Please let us know if there are any problems with this plugin.

Calling all builders!

It’s been over a year since our last building competition and since then, our player base has increased exponentially. As a result, we have decided to host a building competition as we enter this lovely spring season! For many, spring is a time when many lively colors emerge from the dull shades of winter, bringing life to everything around us. Just as exotic as this time period is, our upcoming building competition will showcase the large variety of builders we have on Ruinscraft. Just as the spring season introduces new life into the world, we invite you to bring your Wildest Dreams to life!

The competition will take place from April 2nd-April 16th, where you will have 2 weeks to brainstorm, design, and perfect your works. The event will take place on a separate Event server, not Creative. General server rules will be in place for this competition, which includes, but is not limited to:
-No sabotaging another plot
-No more than one...

Edit: We have rescheduled our survival games event to Monday, January 18th, at 3:00 PM EST. Sorry about any inconveniences this may cause.

Hey everyone!

Over the last month or so, we did a charity event for Toys for Tots, donating 20% of proceeds. Our original goal was to raise $2000, meaning $400 to Toys for Tots. I am proud to announce that we met and exceeded this, raising an outstanding $622.60! That's over 55% more than we had hoped. Thanks for your help in meeting this goal; children everywhere will have a better holiday season because of it.

As promised, we are doing a special survival games event on Saturday, January 16th, 2016, at 2:00 PM EST. We hope to see you there to celebrate! There might even be a couple of rank giveaways, but who knows ;).

If you'd like to learn about how Toys for Tots impacts your community, be sure to check out their website at As always, you can stay up to date on Ruinscraft events,...
