    Hello!

    After we brought EvoPVP's Skyblock to Skycade there were a lot of suggestions from people saying we should do the same thing with their KitPVP. We loved the idea so decided to purchase the awesome custom plugin from it's developer @WhiteWalker72 (big thank you to him)!

    KitPVP will be launching tonight at around 8pm UK, here are some details:
    - Progress from Evo will not carry over.
    - Same plugin, new map.
    - You can earn coins from kills and assists, you use those coins to unlock new kits.
    - Over 50 kits to unlock!
    - Soup PVP.
    - If you don't wish to unlock kits with coins you can purchase crates from our store that will unlock a random kit instead.
    - KitPVP will be 1.11 (I know not everyone likes this but there's nothing we can do about it as that's the best thing for plugin support).
    - Your kills, deaths & kill streaks are all recorded on the side of your screen.
    - Top players (in terms of most kills) are recorded with a leader-board at spawn.

    As always with a new gamemode there are likely to be bugs/things that need tweaking, so please politely report these to staff and they will be fixed as soon as possible!

    Previously when launching new gamemodes and resets I have done big public announcements, this leads to the server filling very quickly, often becoming laggy and creating lots of frustrated players. So this time we have decided that a quiet mid-week forum post should create a smaller and more relaxed launch.

    I am also sad to announce that either at the same time, or soon after the launch of KitPVP we will be closing down Aftermath Factions and Skywars. A lot of thought went into this decision but we really think it is the best thing for the server. An issue Evo had was it kept lots of gamemodes open even when they were not popular. It just spread the players out too much and made the server look bad. When running a server somethings you try work really well (selling colored nametags, adding Evo's Skyblock etc) and other things don't (Aftermath, Supporter Rank blah blah blah). It's just a case of trial and error. Anyone who purchased supply drops on aftermath please email support@skycade.net with your IGN to let us know whether you want your purchases to be converted into Factions keys or Skyblock keys.

    Also we recently changed our permission system (to allow us to do a lot more cool stuff) but this lead to a bunch of issues with colored nametags, this should be resolved now, but you might need to apply your things again with /color and /title list.


    We'll be giving out a prize of 50 crate keys (on the gamemode of your choice) to whoever has the most KitPVP kills 7 days after launch.

    KitPVP will be accessible either through the portal, compass GUI or failing those, /server kitpvp

    See you there!

    Jack

    EDIT: Although you'll need to connect with 1.11, it'll be using the 1.8 combat system, just like factions.

    Because of some confusion in game let me make it clear haha, SKYBLOCK IS NOT CLOSING. SKYWARS IS.
    FACTIONS IS NOT CLOSING. AFTERMATH IS.

    Closing off Aftermath and Skywars was a good choice. They weren't getting any popularity. Even though aftermath looked and was kind of fun to me. (Sad to see it go, but it was for the best). Also, Pretty hyped about kitpvp. I do enjoy pvping players and learning along the way. I've been playing minecraft for over 4 years and seeing my favorite server open up one of my favorite gamemodes does make me pretty happy. #HYPE

    Kitpvp is fun, myself, along with other staff were testing before it came out, and it's a lot of fun. The kits really are balanced and quite creative I think.

    Just curious, why do you need plugin support? Are you adding new plugins to Kit or no, because 1.8 - 1.11 compatibility was working fine on Evo
