Three Years of DC

Happy 3rd Birthday Destructioncraft!

Three years ago I set out on a goal. This was a simple goal to most, but I was determined to accomplish it. To create a server, no, a community that would always stand strong. Having come from a server that shut down out of nowhere I knew that horrid feeling of something you loved coming to an end. From that day on I strived to do my best to keep this community alive and thriving.

Exactly three years ago from today (1/16/12), I purchased a 24 slot minecraft server. Which later, would become known as Destructioncraft. With a few friends, we began building our empire. Some notable names you might remember (NinjaRules, andrewjearls, MineMcAwesome, Link502, seanearls). Having them helped kick this server off the right way. 

        In only a few weeks, I had to upgrade the slots, then before I even realized it, I had upgraded our plan multiple times. I'm proud to say that DC has surpassed many other servers that were made at the same time. Not only have we been growing rapidly, but as a community we are evolving. Before I knew it, we hit 100/100 players,
then 200/200, and now even recently, 375 online. 

This is something that I never thought would happen and It still blows my mind today. DC may not be the biggest server, or the best for that matter. But I believe that I am have accomplished my goal, and now I will set sail for even higher goals. We've created friends, enemies, and even real world relationships. Who would've thought that my little server would bring people together in such a manner? DC has effected many lives, Obviously including my own. Because of DC and everything computer related that I've learned, I plan to further pursue a career in Information Technology.

I want to give an extended thanks to all of our players, banned or not. For helping to shape Destructioncraft into what it is today. Without each and everyone of you, we wouldn't be here. So again, thank you to anyone who's ever played on DC, voted for us, and donated to keep us running. Also shout out to the staff team for not only putting up with my crazy demands but for keeping the server a clean place to play <3. Three years is a long time, We were originally a solo Towny server for about two years. On February 26th 2014, we moved into a Hub server setup to continue expanding. We're still at it today, and I don't plan on stopping.

Long Live DC!

Mystery Crates

nickshelton80 a posted Jan 5, 15

Following up on the last post, This next one was too long, it deserved it's own post. I just added a crate plugin to Towny, Factions, Skyblock, and Prison. "Mystery Crates" are a new donator package, you can currently purchase two tiers, Tier One (5$) and Tier Two (10$). Crates can be found at the spawn of each server.

The cool thing is, no matter what you will get something worth what you paid for. Below is a list of what can be found in each crate. There is a decent % chance that you will get TWO things from a crate. Read below for more information.

Mystery Crate Tier #1

You will get 1-2 rewards upon opening the crate, You will get one or two of the random rewards listed below. Since there's a chance you can get two rewards, you have a chance at winning 10$ worth of items by only paying 5$.

You have a 33% chance to get 5 Villager Eggs (5$ Value)
You have a 33% chance to get God Sword Kit (5$ Value)
You have a 33% chance to get Two of Each Animal Egg (5$ Value)

Remember, that means there's a chance you can win two of the above.

Mystery Crate Tier #2

You will get 1-2 rewards upon opening the crate, You will get one or two of the random rewards listed below. Since there's a chance you can get two rewards, you have a chance at winning 20$ worth of items by only paying 10$.

You have a 25% chance to get a Beacon (10$ Value)
You have a 25% chance to get 10 Villager Eggs (10$ Value)
You have a 25% chance to get God Tools (10$ Value)
You have a 25% chance to get God Armor (10$ Value)

Remember, that means there's a chance you can win two of the above.

This is just a neat little plugin, If you are someone who is interested in anything in the crate, then It's a win win situation! You have a chance at spending 5$, and ending up with 20$ worth of things.

If you buy a key, you get it on all four of our create supported servers.
PlasmaDolkka Just a suggestion, if possible, maybe you could make it so that there is a .05% chance that you can get a key from votin ...
