With 1.9 update just around the corner and it bringing in some awesome updates to the combat side of minecraft I'm suggesting that we open a 1.9 Vanilla Server for members of Realmkraft that apply via the website.
Don't worry about the applying to join this is just to filter out trolls and griefers.
I think that this would be a great way to show off some 1.9 swag without having to wait for plugin developers to update their plugins so we can run a full server. A few ground rules could be set to avoid mass killings/raidings, griefing etc but as well allow players to show off their new combat skills with a pvp arena.
Weekly competitions could be held to allow players to team up and battle the minecraft world together.
Points could be won from the competitions which could be traded in for getting something special on either vanilla or survival server. E.g 100 points = 1 Mob Egg. <-- This is probably a bad example but you get what I mean.
Anyway to wrap it up I think this would be a cool idea for those wanting to participate.
Feel free to add any of your ideas to this and say what you like about it or dislike
Peace, Maximus [o.o]
