There are many positive attribute to this server and Ive had some fun here (no doubts) but overall for as semi-mature adults who wish to play survival vanilla minecraft I've had a fairly bad time here. Why you ask?1) Virtually no one has to earn anything here they simply vote and buy things from shops dirt cheap NO EFFORTS. those with skills have less than those who hang around town all day like bums. (how bout a survival bonus per-day in the frontier how bout being able to answer mail so we still vote?)2) most people sit in town and play yoville like games with no incentives to survive on a survival server3) We go to the mumble server mature room to speak as adults and we were trolled by at least 7 kids. after that they literally followed us to every room we'd choose. had to leave the mumble server FOREVER.- knows of this event he was around and also trolling us. despite being a long standing member he was definitely siding with these cyber-bully-kids (which was silly when there were many channels to be on.) They stalked us from channel to channel and then in chat (this was sorta the final straw for my buddy and I, the main reason for this post)4) there are houses in town that are just ridiculous: like giant waterfalls that go to the sky, lagging everything around so people cant build comfortably. (as the case with my friend) Also the frontier is a wasteland for many blocks...no community effort to repair and beautify it5) people are definitely using mods to cheat on here and not getting caught.6) I was intending to become a supporter not a detractor but my friends don't want to play here because of all the nonsense. and friends are a large reason i play7) for all its great aspects (like custom mobs and a somewhat interesting community) etc there are too many downsides such as not being able to create a large map in the frontier.PLAY IT YOUR WAY? NOPE.its play it a 9-year olds way!Everyone with my group is over 21, has money, and they give credit where credit is due but, that hasn't been the case here. if I've offended anyone my regrets but this has been my group's experience and its sad to say I don't think i can convince them all to return. we have put in a fair amount of work here, don't really want to leave it all but, I can't ever see us becoming part of a community dominated by children. here to minecraft not to babysit and report everything I see wrong (because it would never end) Maybe we've just has bad luck but somehow I feel there needs to be better incentives on this server.I want to end on a positive note (believe it or not) I think this server has potential to be among the best of survival/economy servers with only some minor changes. those changes would mainly be to cater to those who actually have the ability to enhance and pay for the server NOT to those who only detract from the gameplay. It was great kicking momentus and marlix to the curb! very fun bosses and not without sacrifice, it was fun seeing some of the economy and games in town. that all being said I wish EMC the best of luck (I hope I can get myself and my friends to reconsider) its not impossible to find a few more involved mature admins etc and make this place the best place to minecraft. EMC truly has a much larger potential.PS: I wont be responding to this thread.
