Hey everyone, it is finally time to announce our opening date. After a lot of work to improve the server and the staff team, we’re at a point where we can open the server. It’s been almost 6 months since we shut down, and we know it hasn’t been an easy wait. We really appreciate all of you being patient with us and we cannot wait to start playing with you again!
We will be opening on Thursday, February 24, 2022 7:00 PM UTC. This is a slightly weird date but we can only open on Thursdays and Sundays due to my availability. We’d rather have a slightly slow opening day but give you guys the whole weekend to play than opening on a Sunday.
Additionally, we are reopening most of the Discord Channels as of this announcement. This includes off-topic, d-general, help, etc. suggestions, marketplace, and bidding are the exception to this, and will be available once the server is open. Since the other channels are open again our rules for them are back to normal. This means basically all the conversation that has been happening in general should now go in off-topic again.
After about a month of uptime, we plan to open staff applications. This will give head staff a chance to familiarize themselves with the community so that we’re able to make accurate judgments on our applications to meet the needs of our new servers. As many of you know, we’ve spent hours rehauling our training and improving our team culture, and we are excited for the next generation of Altitude moderators to join us in the near future!
The Alpha rank is no longer available to purchase. Anyone who has bought the Alpha rank will keep it, this includes the in-game prefix! Everyone who bought Alpha will have access to an exclusive Alpha particle as a thank you. There will be more particles released on the donation store for anyone to buy shortly after release. Once the server opens up, the Alpha rank will not be displayed as prominently on Discord because there will no longer be active alpha testing happening. We will also be closing the entire alpha section of the Discord, this section will only be open when alpha testing is happening. Thank you to everyone who participated in our Alpha testing, you helped us tremendously and we really appreciate you taking the time to help us test. The alpha server will be open throughout this week to continue testing, but it will be officially closed after Wednesday to give us time to open the server.
There will be another announcement when we open which will everyone as well.
TDLR: We’re opening on Thursday, February 24, 2022 7:00 PM UTC!
Update: I forgot to mention, but spawns won’t be fully finished yet. Please give our spawn builders some extra time to finish the small details while you guys enjoy the server. This will give us the opportunity to incorporate community feedback that we get on the spawn design!
