  1. Vault Closing Date Hey guys, Our time on the Isles of Axios is coming to a halt. Just making a quick announcement to clarify that vaults will be closing on the 14th of December when we board the boats heading to Atlas. This means that you should have items you want to keep from your inventories and ender chest stored away within the next 4 days, as they will both be wiped. Remember to place a modreq in-game if you still need your role-play items signed. Here’s more information on the vault system, if you missed the thread previously: https://www.lordofthecraft.net/forums/topic/168029-introducing-the-vault/ We apologize to those who thought they had more time. If there are any issues that arise from this after we arrive on 6.0, please contact a member of the Administration Team. Excited to see you all in the realm of Atlas the 16th of December! -Vaynth

      Yes very soon. Basically all of the admins have to be on the same page before we announce things to the community. We're not intentionally ignoring anyone, I assure you.

      I'm glad to hear that you hear that we hear you hearing us.

  4. Hey LOTC Community, With the planning of our newest map comes the responsibility to ensure our transition to 6.0 goes smoothly for you guys. That being said, we will be allocating some time for nations to peacefully settle into their new locations on the realm of Atlas. I must announce that Limited Creative will no longer be distributed to players following the removal of Nexus crafting. Building materials are becoming much easier to obtain and more abundant, so we’d like to see how players fair with a more vanilla system in place. Another factor that ultimately lead to this decision were the many glitches LC for players was prone to. Nations may still be granted LC for building their settlements at the initial launch. A few general limitations have been set for the launch of 6.0. We ask that they are respected and followed. ________________________________________________________ First week: (12/16-12/23) -Raiding is disallowed; This decision was made essentially to allow nations a period of order in which they’ll be able to focus on building. ________________________________________________________ First month: (12/16-1/16) -There will be no War Claims, Coups, Tile Purchases, and Nation Charters; All of these systems are being re-worked during this period, while players are settling in and becoming accustomed to our new realm. In addition, the conclusion regarding War Claims also goes hand in hand with our reasoning for putting a hold on Raids. ________________________________________________________ That’s about all for now! Please keep an eye out for further announcements, as our staff will be doing their best to answer questions we’ve received regarding the new map and relaying important information as we grow closer to the 16th of December. We certainly hope you’re all excited to explore the new land. Have a lovely day.
  5. Whitelist application has been accepted, player is now whitelisted in game.
  6. November Monthly Update Log Before getting started with my usual analysis, I’d just like to mention this will be my sixth and final monthly update log as the Director of the Application Team. I will be stepping down from my tenure some time around the end of December, after a year long being a member of the AT. I’d like to thank everyone I worked with and helped me in achieving my goals towards improving the new player experience: including my lovely managers, members, Lego_Xbox for assisting me with data collection, Kowaman for creating the helpful commands we’ve requested, Tailor’s Guild members, and of course the Administration team. It was truly a pleasure, I’ve always loved everything about this team and what is stands for. With my promotion to Administrator, I plan to still put many of my efforts towards projects and ideas on inevitably increasing player retention. Only now, I will be focusing on the player base as a whole rather than directing my attention towards solely new players. New Player Data For main races in November we had a little bit of everything, though as usual Humans and Elves together took 75% of the overall new players. Humans were just a little over half of the accepted applicants, and Elves were roughly a quarter of them. Dwarves came in third one again, being very closely matched with the Orcs at 10% and 8% of the 80 total accepted applications this month. We also welcome two Halflings and one new Kha to the server. Onto subraces! It’s been noted that new human player typically don’t decide on a subrace- with ~50% of them choosing not to do so. The remainder were Highlanders(30%) and Heartlanders(20%), with no Farfolk additions. Elves were divided quite evenly among their subraces, as can be seen on figure a2. High Elves were the largest division, following Wood Elves and Dark Elves tied behind them. Snow Elves were the least popular elven subrace, but they still gained 3 new members. Only one new player did not specify their subrace. For Dwarves, we had most half of them without a subrace, with 3 Mountain Dwarves and 1 Cavern Dwarf. Orcs received surprisingly three Goblins, with one player in each other subrace- the remaining Orc failing to specify one. Figure a1. Accepted applicant distribution by race (n=80). Figure a2. Accepted applicant distribution by subrace (n=80). In the spoiler below, you will find a list of the new players accepted to the server, be sure to reach out to these people and introduce yourself if you have time! Table 1. Accepted applicant name and race. November was quite a slow month for the Application Team. We hope to see things pick up around the release of our newest map, Atlas. Out of the total of 95 applications this month, 80 were accepted onto the server. Exactly 50% were accepted right away, while ~30% were placed on pending and assisted by an AT member before inevitably being accepted. Unfortunately, about 21% of applications were denied for various reasons, with half of those being placed on pending and being offered help beforehand. We definitely encourage these wandering souls to reapply in the future. Figure b. Distribution of application results (n=95). Once again we’ll highlight the timezones of new players that have joined. It’s great to see people all over the world coming to join our community of imaginative roleplayers. The American/Canadian time zones were in the majority and contained about 60% of our newest players, while 30% were from the European time zone. We were also glad to see we’ve gained 6 people (8%) from the Oceania time zone. We wish these players the best of luck on their roleplay journey. Figure c. Distribution of accepted player timezones (n=84). Member Additions and Resignations/Removals We are happy to announce that for the first time in many months, we lost absolutely no members within our team roster. In addition, we’ve added four amazing new team members chosen for their drive and passion to give new players a great experience when first joining the server. Welcome them aboard. Additions: +Elrith +Riftblade +ttwesten +GaiaLoTC Team Data We have one more member than our typical amount, so quota this month was lowered slightly to 6% for members and 3% for managers. This is the first month I did not personally take any applications, mainly because I have a spooky red tag now. Nonetheless, we have kept up nicely with application. Figure d. Percentage of applications completed by application team members. Total applications, n = 95. Quota noted by red dashed line (6%). The new team members were not required to hit quota this time around; that being Elrith, Riftblade, ttwesten, and GaiaLOTC. Crinky fell just behind the dashed line, and Cordial has been on a hiatus while still doing occasional work due to technical issues with his PC. Big round of applause to Jandy for coming on just as strong of a member as he was in his previous tenure. He completed 34 of the overall applications this month- that’s 35%! Also standing out in his work ethic was ttwesten, who far surpassed quota when not even required to. Amazing job team. Team Projects and Goals For the most part, we have put a pause on most AT related projects until we get settled into 6.0. The Tailor’s Guild is being placed on hold until further notice (while I make some tweaks) and we will be striving to provide the best in game assistance we can to entering players on Atlas while we are all learning our place and exploring the new lands ourselves. In addition, I will still be making efforts towards uncluttering the whitelist forum section (and remaking some threads), though there have been a few priorities placed above the little project for now. If you’re interesting in the current state of player retention, I encourage you to view this thread posted by Sporadic. He’s developed a much quicker method of gathering data on the matter and it’s a ton more informative than what I could collect using the /seen function. https://www.lordofthecraft.net/forums/topic/168183-denizens-of-axios-average-players-and-newbie-retention/ That's about it. I wish you guys a fantastic December.

    They grow up so fast.
  8. WELL this is much better than the data I collected using /seen. Nice work Sporadic. Thanks for doing this.
  9. On hold- your Minecraft IGN was deemed inappropriate for our server. I ask that you change it to something suitable, and then send me a forum PM and I'll have you whitelisted. (Edit: Note to staff- Player's IGN has been changed to ShlomoShekels.)
