    Hello skycade!

    Yes as you have seen in the title SkyCade will be updating to Minecraft 1.11 soon... now we anticipate a lot of bells are going to ring with the introduction of this forum post, this mainly due to the fact that 1.9 introduces combat delays.

    However rest assured we will not be keeping the combat delay Minecraft version 1.9 introduced. This however does mean that things like the shield, elytra and the different arrows will be added to SkyCade.

    For a complete change log of what Minecraft version 1.9 or 1.10 added click on the links below:

    Now just like most of you we don't like the combat overhaul Minecraft 1.9 has introduced, but if we continue to run on an outdated version of Minecraft bad things are going to happen. Plugins and overall server stability will degrade, making this a necessary step.

    Feel free to reply with any questions or concerns regarding to these changes.

    FAQ:

    Q: Will I be able to join with Minecraft 1.8.9 or 1.9?
    A: No, you will only be able to join with Minecraft 1.11

    Will we still be able to play in 1.8.9? (Use that version, but have the server just be 1.9+) and will it be after the next reset?

    So the only difference is that the PVP is the old style? The rest is pure 1.10?

    1.9 and above is cancer as there are soo many redundant items and creates waaay too much lag

    But the question is,

    how would we be able to get them without these end islands? The End we have now is 1.8 generated. And no we're not reseting the end lol

    It will be like the Titanic all over again but instead if the ship going down it will be the player count.
