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!
