Hi Penguins,

After the positive feedback from you guys referring to how I feel about the situation of the Network boosted our motivation even more. I really appreciate how you guys try to help us revive the server. So even though I included the suggestion part in my post not many of you focused on suggestion part cause it was more of a situation assesment. I need you guys's opinion for each thing that is server related. ( Discord , TeamSpeak, Forums, Rules, Lobby, Practice, OP-Factions, Kit Map, SkyBlock. )

Discord:

Im willing to make a discord events a thing. Apart from these what would make our discord more fascinating and fun?

TeamSpeak:

Many of you might have noticed Im not TS user but im aware that you guys receive ts ranks real slow so im planning to accelerate it. Also might add a TS rank with special perms for the people who wants to support the server. Anything else we should add to make TS better?

Forums & Rules:

Cleaned all section's off topic and outdated sticky threads.

Updated information & template of Player Trade & Giveaway section.

Updated Media Section Rules & Information template.

Updated Team Recruitment Template.

Updated Kit Map Guide and will keep updating according to server updates.

Post Practice PvP Guide.

Updated Asistance & Questions Information post.

Rules have been updated.

I will be hiring forum moderators to keep forums proffessional like deleting useless posts or moving posts to right sections etc.

We will be starting to sell custom forum tags at BuyCraft again.

What else should we add to make forums better?

Lobby, Practice, OP-Factions, Kit Map, SkyBlock:


New Lobby will be put for the release & few plugins in to make it more proffessional like player visibility on/off speed on/off etc.

About the gamemodes, since we are going to reset them we need you guys's opinion ( I have few listed accouring to you guys's suggestions ) but im going to collect more ideas and make a seperate thread...
Dear Cold Network,

Before anything that i should include in this post Imma share what we have planned for the network's resurrection;


I think ''Fresh Start'' is what we need. You guys can consider this as a new version of Cold Network but its not Cold 3.0 or something like that.

We will whitelist the Network from 21 October to 25 October and remake all gamemodes accoring to you guys's opinions, also fixing all bugs, putting new lobby along with some rule,staff changes. We can change or add anything you guys suggest untill 26th October. You can suggest anything as comment or pm me on discord instead
( Pengurino#9271 ). We are opening the server on 26th of October at 4pm GMT+2 ( Starting with practice ) and release the rest of gamemodes in this schedule;


26 October 4pm GMT+2 Practice

26 October 7pm GMT+2 SkyBlock Release

27 October 4pm GMT+2 Kit Map SOTW


2 November 5pm GMT+2 HCF Lite SOTW ( New version of HCF )

PS: GMT+2 = Netherland timezone.
PS2: We will be having some big youtubers as guest.

PS3: I will make two posts about gamemodes in few days. ( One to discuss stuff about features with you guys, one to announce its release )
PS4: Donator ranks wont be lost.
PS5: Unban all ^^

PS6: We are staying premium.



So Im starting the ''critisize'' as its sometimes needed.

Its obvious that the server is at its worst days. I know its all our fault ( Nick and mine mostly ). We both were demotivated about the server due to private reasons ( Yoeri was the only one who kept updating his own gamemodes which wasnt enough at all ). With the serious drop on the playercount and lack of activity made us worry about our baby. As...
Information Kit Map SOTW
Dear Cold Network,

After quite a long time without updates we are back and starting to update the network with Kit Map. Here are the features its going to have.

Countdown:
https://www.timeanddate.com/countdo...T16&p0=16&msg=Kit+Map+SOTW&font=cursive&csz=1

Features:

Special Abilities/Items ( Common ):
We will be having special items like grapple hook (without a class connected), freezer, bombs, switch balls and more. These will be available from crates, quests and of course the store.

Bounties:
You'll be able to set bounties on players. If you kill a player who had bounty on him/her you will receive the money!

Conquest:
4 sided KOTH. Much more funnier than classic KOTH!

DTC:
Basically is a koth, but instead of standing on a place you have to mine a block. Once you mine a block (and there-by receive points) enough times you will win the DTC event. ( Like Annihilation )

Leader boards:
Visible leader boards in spawn.

Crates & Drops revamp:
Air Drop locations will be changed + Some changes in crates

Quests:
To bring some more fun, and possibilities to achieve store items. We will be introducing quests, with this you can receive keys, tokens, items and more to use.

Elo Ranking ( On Scoreboard ):
To make the gameplay more competitive we are making elo ranking visible on score board!

Yours,

Cold Team.
Dear ColdNetwork,

I think it's that time again where we do an ACTUAL update for practice.

This will take place at 4PM CEST!
Click here for count down


So what we'll be doing is implement a pretty big new feature, but this requires testing... so what we'll do is host a fun week and at the end we'll hand out some rewards to winners.

The features that'll be added are the following:

Clans:
Clans will be like factions, you can invite up to 5 players to your clan and access the clan chat.
We've implemented a new queue called the Clan Queue, every single player of your clan can join this queue and earn elo for the whole clan.
At the end of the week the top 3 clans with their elo get a reward, we also have win streaks and the top winstreak clan will also get a reward.

Global ELO:
We will now also have global elo in the leaderboards and in your stats menu, we will also give out small rewards for this at the end of the beta week.

HCF Kits:
We now added Rogue and Archer to enjoy in the Party HCF event, check them out!

Yours,

Cold

Hey everyone,

This thread is about kitmap, the stuff that happened 2 days ago and the giveaway from 1 week ago.

So I was going to announce the winners today, but when I saw that only a few people replied to the Giveaway thread with their IGN I think it's best if I re-announce it and announce winners tomorrow.
I didn't put comment your ign below, so here it is: Comment your ign below to win one of the 10 euro store credits.

Two days ago we had another "ETB" also known as server grief, nothing really bad happened besides our kitmap being destroyed beyond the ability to repair it. I have backups but they're older then 5 days and I don't want to confuse every player that doesn't read this with their stuff being rollbacked so far. So lets just refresh kitmap and do a reset tomorrow at 4PM CEST. I'll add a few things to make it more fun aswell tomorrow.

REMINDER: SkyBlock is releasing in a few hours:
