Let's talk EULA, Mojang has officially blacklisted their first MODDED server.

Discussion in 'Announcements' started by technicpackmod, May 1, 2016.

  1. TL;DR:

    1. A list of blacklisted servers was released (my thoughts are contained below with the assumption that the people decoding the list did so successfully.)
    2. Mojang is finally enforcing its EULA with serious but non-litigious force (not suing).
    3. Mojang has officially blacklisted a modded server for the first time, many speculated that modded servers would not be effected by any of this, clearly that’s not the case.
    4. NOTHING will change for us, we have been compliant for a very long time, and wish to strive to provide the best experience possible, but in order to do so we need your support, you can either visit our store at https://enderplay.com/store or sending a direct donation to corporate@endermedia.org via PayPal.
    Evening friends, Ender here with a community update and my thoughts regarding what is going on in the community right now. You’ve probably seen this image making the rounds in the Minecraftverse: [​IMG]

    It is not my intent to blast non-compliant servers here, only to inform our users and provide some anecdotal feedback regarding the situation. We’ve had a very long time to prepare for this, and I doubt any of us will get it right the first time, so please be patient as we try to find a balance between pleasing you guys our amazing players and paying the bills.

    Wait you said ENFORCEMENT, not just warnings right? Correct, they are actually denying players access to the servers running the newer version of the game that are not complying. Some servers have outright come out and said they have no plans to comply in the future and would rather just cash out over the next few months and then die.

    At the end of the day it’s all about what you, our players are willing to buy, so amidst this crazy situation I want to ask every one of you, what would you pay for, what would you enjoy, what would make you want to support us, what would excite you. When you start taking a game too seriously its no longer fun, so lets keep it light and have a civil conversation about moving forward, because looking back won’t do any of us any good.

    Side note, can we all agree that #MicrosoftSaveMinecraft like Microsoft isn’t aware of the whole situation is just absurd, they want to clean it up so its safer for education and better for our youth, if it was your kids, you’d feel the same way.

    I can assure you all this, as we take our next steps we do so with very careful thought regarding how it will affect our awesome community, we really love you guys

    Goodnight everyone, and as always,

    <3 Ender

  2. So, I have been playing modded servers since the Pre-Eula days and would like to agree that it was a good idea. With little to no enforcement it hasnt really shown its full force. My kids also play and i do want them protected as i do my wallet. Money should not buy you the win. If someone is willing to pay to have some items they just dont want to farm and craft for, cool. Now extra commands is where i get my wallet out. /fly, /feed, /back, /rtp, /echest, /chest. Bring it on, ill pay. Many servers i have seen have a list of items individually they recieve after donating. that has worked. Lets have more staff involvement/presence. Often players will quit because of lack of leadership when they are on. If i crash and i put in a request for help that lasts over 48 hours. i quit. There are more servers than players these days and i have come to like the oldies such as Realm of Mianite. I am new and notice alot of healthy plug-ins. Kudos. Ok well want to give my hat off to ender and his teams and to the players. Thank you.
