To all of our old worlds, We Salute you!
The time has come for us to say farewell to our former worlds as we retire them after all these years. With one last great celebration, on the Ides of March (March 15th) we will be shutting down our old survival worlds (Terra, Fyra, Borjan, Tolteca) for good.
All of the retired worlds will be made downloadable for all, but from March 15th onwards we will no longer host them on our server. The end is truly near!
Although the closure of our old survival worlds may come as a surprise to some folks, our hope is that with their retirement we can better support - with renewed vigor - a new beginning and a fresh start with our server's support for Minecraft. This has already begun with the release of our latest survival world, "The New Adventure," and will continue as we adapt to the changing circumstances that Mojang has presented to us with every new update. There is still so much to look forward to.
That said, do not despair at the closure of our old survival worlds! Remember and treasure the good times. Use this time to reflect on the fun you had in the past, and the fun you can have now and in the near future with our latest endeavors. Keep in mind that this includes being able to work on the spawn of our new world. Those who are interested in contributing to TNA's spawn-zone are asked to contact derigin via the forums or on IRC.
At noon, server time, on March 15th, come join us as we celebrate the end of the world. It promises to be a fun time as we shutdown the old worlds.

Remember "The New Adventure (TNA)"
wokka mentioned a while ago? Been anxiously waiting since then to come back to Escapecraft and have something to do once more? Well, that wait is soon-to-be over...
On Thursday, February 13th
, we will start by opening up TNA to our VIPs and to our sponsors. Whether you're already a sponsor, or plan to donate once TNA is out, you will have a first chance to check out the new world and make a claim! After a three day period, on Sunday February 16th
we will be opening up TNA to the public for all players to enjoy, new and old. If you're still around and can stick out the wait for a few days more, connect your Minecraft clients to our server on the day TNA releases, and you too will be able to play on Escapecraft's fresh new world!
Something to keep in mind with the release of TNA: the staff-built spawn is not the full extent of TNA. You are welcome to contribute to the world's development, starting as soon as you wander outside of the spawn's archipelego. Additionally, those who are interested in contributing to TNA's spawn-zone are asked to contact derigin
via the forums or on IRC.
Besides that, hope to see you all in the world soon! Have fun, and happy crafting... ESCAPEcrafting!
~ The staff
P.S. Here's a few more sneak peeks at what the world looks like:

Hey everyone! In case you've all missed minecraft events for a while, random980 plans to host his own spleef tournament shortly before the release of TNA. If you're interested in having one last final game of spleef before we wipe to a new map, click here
and sign up on his thread. Thanks! And uhh... happy late New Years I guess?

UPDATE: Sorry everyone! I don't think it'll be possible to do the event with only 4, maybe 5 people participating. As such, the event's been cancelled. If you're interested in still doing an event (albeit in Minecraft), feel free to check out random980's spleef tournament!
Since the opening of our fantabulous starmade server, I thought it would be appropriate (albeit kind of late) to do an actual event there, instead of on the usual Minecraft. As such, on January 11th, 2014, thou canst joineth thine in ye olde shippe challenge of bilde - or in more legible terms, a big build hosted on starmade.
From January 11th to January 17th
, you can log onto a special starmade event server
whose IP address will be PMed to you, the participant, upon signup. This server won't be a duplicate of the main starmade server, and upon joining you'll find some things are different about it - Blueprint uploads are disabled, you've started with 100 million credits, and the spawn shop is stocked with just about everything. This way, you'll have a whole week to make a unique, non-imported Spirit of Fire sized ship, with a near-infinite amount of materials available to use. The only limitations there are: Your ship must be between 1,000 and 5,000 blocks, and about 2-3x the size of the default pirate ship, the Isanth VI.
(which can be checked from build mode). Don't forget that quality of a ship will be chosen over what it supplements, too!
And guess what the winner gets? They will have their ship become a default ship for pirates and the trading guild to use, along with the Isanth VIs - as well as 100 million credits (I feel like Dr. Evil from typing this - "A BILLION MILLION JAZILLION SHIBIDIBIBILLION... yen!") and a Royalty donator rank item that can be given to another player or used on the Minecraft server at will. Second place will also get their ship set as a default ship for pirates and trading guild with a 10 million credit reward, and third place will only get their ship set as a default ship with no credit rewards involved. If this is interesting enough for you, sign up below, and on that week you'll be able to possibly immortalize your ship on starmade (as well as win large amounts of credits)!Judges for the event:
