    Hello players,

    We have quite a few updates to Survival that I'd like to announce. Some of these updates have been completed already, and some of them will be rolled out in the coming days:

    • Added Tinkerer to /ce. Trade your unwanted enchanted items for special prizes!
    • Added Black Smith to /ce. Combine two enchanted items or books to make the enchant level higher!
    • Added many scrolls and other fun features to /ce.
    • Please report bugs, as I'm sure there will be plenty.
    In the next few days, we will be releasing a new spawn for Survival. This is due to the current spawn castle not having sufficient space to expand the way we have planned. When we release this new spawn, we will be releasing 5 new Survival ranks, which will go in-between the current ranks, to make the gaps between the ranks significantly less dramatic. MANY new features for the server will be released when we open the new spawn. Stay tuned! ETA: February 7th, 2017.

    Furthermore, we will be editing a few of the rules on the Survival server. Some of these rules have existed before, and are being tweaked, and some new ones are being added.

    • Scamming is no longer permitted. SK is a very friendly community, and the staff team and I have noticed that allowing players to scam each other causes tenseness, and it's not a vibe that we enjoy for SK. So starting at the time this is posted, scamming will no longer be allowed. This includes not paying players money/items when trading and also anything similar. Players who break this rule risk being jailed/banned.
    • Along with scamming not being allowed, taking advantage of new players' ignorance regarding the economy and prices is against the rules. Do not pressure new players to pay unjust prices for items.
    • Teleporting players into death traps, or instant-death scenarios is now against the rules. Players are already advised to be careful when teleporting to untrusted players, so teleport-PvP is still allowed. This rule only pertains to players who intentionally teleport others to a place where they will automatically die. Ex: Accepting a tp request, then hitting a player off a cliff is not allowed.
    • Spamming the same items in the auction more than once in a row is now against the rules. This does NOT include lowering/raising the price, if you mistyped the first time. However, if this is done in a clearly abusive way, action can/will be taken.
    • Selling items in the auction with ridiculously high bid increment prices in attempt to trick players into paying more is now against the rules. Ex: auctioning an item for $500 with a bid increment of $20,000 is against the rules.
    • More of a clarification, rather than a rule: Town mayors are permitted to make town-specific rules that pertain to their town in particular. However, this is against the rules if the rules the mayor in question creates interferes with any of the official server rules.

    Stay tuned for some more updates, and please remember to report any bugs you find while using /ce.

    ok small question, are the original ranks staying the same or will their requirements be changing as part of the changes? I'm right at the cusp of a new rank. I would be gutted to go for it and then find out the requirements were lowered days after or vise versa.

    The rank requirements may or may not change. It depends on your current rank. The lower ranks are made to be easier to obtain, while the higher ranks are made to be more challenging.
