Timebomb + christmas sale (ended) + revamped spawns
SKYBLOCK RESET + FACTION RESET + CREATIVE RESET
Timebomb is back!
An original gamemode created by us (GameplayerHD, ExplodingTNT, ftbastler) over
two years ago is now returning to MCORIGINS thanks to our beloved developer Dubbeh!
"Did you ever play tag? If so, this interesting take on the game will certainly get your attention; TimeBomb - devised by ExplosiveTNT and GamePlayerHD - is a game mode where players are spawned into an arena, with a certain number of them carrying TNT. The idea is to tag other players with it, so they wind up carrying the TNT instead of you; once the 1-minute timer runs out, whoever's left carrying the TNT blows up, and the survivors get points! Of course, it's not as easy as merely tagging your opponents. The maps are also covered with various wool blocks, each one providing a different effect when walked on: green wool makes you instantly jump very high, blue wool makes you run very fast"

We will update PVPKITS with new things tomorrow! :D
We had too many ranks, so we decided to merge a few ranks.
With the purpose of making it more organized, eassier to remember and to give more perks per rank.
No, you wont get less perks!
No, you wont go down a rank!
Yes, there will be more perks per rank!
Will be removed later on to make the chat less messy.
People owning nicknames will get compensated with another perk.
You are now able to submit tickets related to rank issues or donation issues, you can read this thread.
It has replaced the old email support system.
We are currently working and preparing the 6.0, we have lots of cool and new things coming this update such as the return of our original gamemode Timebomb. ExplodingTNT will make a promotional trailer on his youtube channel which will bring more players :D
Ranks Changes for the upcoming mcorigins 6.0 update:
We have realised that we have too many ranks, and want to cut the ranks down from 7 to 4 ranks. We have all the perks spread to 7 ranks, giving every rank little perks. By having 4 ranks every rank would benefit from more perks overall and make it simpler in general for players to get the right rank and adminstrators to manage the server.
Should we remove nickname/prefix/suffix?
The chat on MCORIGINS is very messy, its very hard to read peoples names hence the weird nicknames/prefix/suffix. I would personally like to remove it and compensate the perk with something else.
What do you guys think? Should we try make our chat cleaner and easier to read? Tell us your opinions :D
Return of Timebomb:
We made a whole information thread for timebomb here

So I've been busy updating a few things, and I thought that I should let you guys know exactly what I've updated, along with the new features. So here they are;
Playerheads; The playerheads plugin has been updated, and now has the capability to list the players' name who owns the head. To use it, simply left click, or right click the head!
It will look something like this.
Coreprotect; This has been added to creative and skyblock. So if you create any naughty signs or plots. We can easily find out it was you.
Chat filter; You might have already noticed, but we've tightened up chat filter to include all slurs we could think of. If you find any slurs we missed, you can pm myself, or another staff member, and we'll get that added.
Lobby gadgets; There's already a section about this, in an earlier news section so i'll keep this brief. We've added new gadgets to the lobby, you can access the gadgets by left or right clicking while holding the beacon in your inventory. Note; paintballgun has been disabled temp due to resetting heads placed to skeleton skulls. You can still use /paintgun until it is re-enabled.
If you have any suggestions for the Lobby Cosmetics you can suggest them here.
Skygrid; Some of you may have noticed that Skygrid was whitelisted for a period of time. This was due to a corruption in the regions file, which left the spawn area wide open for griefing. The griefed areas were repaired. Some regions may have been lost in the corrupted file, and you will need to break and replace the sponge in order to protect your area again.
You may also have noticed the shop now has it's villagers again, this was due to an outdated plugin, which has now been updated.
Teamspeak; You may have noticed that teamspeak was reset recently. This was to fix the admin group, which had some perms missing from it. Now, as for what I've actually updated on it,
There is now a Member rank, along with a Media rank. Two new ranks. You can get the Member rank simply by asking a member of staff for the rank. It is currently the only rank we will freely give you, if you ask for it. The Member rank is special, because it lets you enter the "Member Zone" channel.
Whilst inside this channel, you can create your own, private sub channel! The media rank has similar features, but also prevents you from being poked by people who aren't staff.
There are also more channels for you to join, chat with your friends, and interact with the community!
