Sad to announce but myself, @OnePound, and @Mag have decided to not pursue re-opening Icewynd.
Over the past few months, many things have taken higher priority such as school, work, and family. This has impacted our ability to finish the server/plugin work. I have mainly been on the sidelines as they did a ton of work creating custom plugins, re-working the forums and Discord, etc. There are some things related to host server administration that I did but I just don't have the time or interest to work on.
We also feel that we will not have a large playerbase that will stick around for long after the server reopens. We would hate to continue to put so much effort into it and experience a weak return on that effort. Factions servers require a lot of factions that continue to play and it can be difficult to keep people playing if bugs are not fixed quickly or new content is not released fast enough.
Welcome Back! For those of you who have not been keeping up-to-date via our community discord, we're coming back!
Matagin, Magnettar and I have been working on the return of Icewynd now for the last 8 or so months and are coming closer to an official re-launch of the Factions Server! Unfortunately for the next few weeks or so, development will be slow due to exams and other demands, but we expect to have some more information regarding the first season of the new and improved Factions server by the end of June, or early July.
Thanks for sticking around whilst we work on making the best, most unique, and balanced factions server of 2018.
