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.

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 person working on one plot
-No imitating/taking credit for other’s builds
-Friendly attitudes with competitors

The competition will be judged by several build team members and admins, placement and prizes will be announced several days after the competition ends, which you can expect to be April 18-21. We hope you enjoy this event, as we are sure you will! Good luck and happy building, from the staff and build team!

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 http://www.toysfortots.org/. As always, you can stay up to date on Ruinscraft events, promotions, and cool player builds on our Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Hey guys! We've got something else for you guys to look forward to this Christmas - VIP rank giveaways! We will be picking 3 random players to win one of three of these ranks: one for VIP7, one for VIP6, and one for VIP5. The giveaway will be hosted on our hub server on Christmas day. The winners will be picked at 12PM EST. If you happen to win one of the VIP ranks and already have a VIP rank, you will be upgraded to the rank you won and payed the remaining store credit. For example, if someone with VIP1 wins the VIP7 rank, they will be upgraded to VIP7 and given 10 dollars worth of store credit. See you there!

IronTwix - VIP7
AmbassadorX1010 - VIP6
xXDuckODoomXx - VIP5

Hey everybody!

We are once again entering that festive time of year, and we want to make it the best year yet! We are proud to announce that we will be hosting a charity event running from December 1st, 2015 to January 2nd, 2016. During this time period, 20% of anything purchased from our webstore will be donated to Toys for Tots, a U.S. Marine Corps Reserve program. Toys for Tots collects toys and monetary donations to give gifts to less fortunate children for Christmas. We really wanted to run a charity event this winter, and since we really believe that all children should receive a new toy for Christmas, we thought it would be nice to help out.

Our goal is to raise a total of $2000.00 USD during this charity event, this means $400 will go towards our charity! 100% of everything else we make during our charity event after the $2000 will go to charity as well. If we meet our goal, we will be doing something special for everyone on the server to thank them for their donations. Let’s come together as a community and do some good this holiday season.

If you’d like to find more information on the Toys for Tots program, or would like to make a separate donation of your own, you can find out everything about them on their site here: http://toysfortots.org/default.aspx.

Thank you for being part of our largest charity event ever!

Make sure you keep up with all of our updates this holiday season by following us on all our social media! We can be found on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
