Games Server

Games Server
  • The Games server, accessed with /games, is a specialized server that is part of the Empire Minecraft network. While the SMP and Utopia servers emphasize Town and survival gameplay, the games server lets players enjoy short rounds of various mini-game modes, such as PvP. Additionally, its arenas host staff-run and scheduled events, such as Mob Arena. These take place on maps unique to the EMC network.

    The various game-modes that the Games server has to offer are highlighted in each of the pages to the right.

    History and release(top)

    Initial production began in June 2014 by the newly formed Build Team. After development and a further design period led by the then-Build Team Leader, B4DMAN5IMON, the project was released on August 4th, 2017.

    Alongside the 1.15 update, most of the player-hosted games (besides PvP) were broken due to changes from 1.12 command block syntax. At that point, the Games server was used almost exclusively for staff-run games such as FireFloor.

    On July 9th, 2022, the Games server received a major update which reinstated many of the games in Funland which were previously broken due to the 1.15 update. This update converted the games from command blocks into code, making it more future-proof than command blocks would be.

    Getting around(top)

    The Games server can be accessed from any world on any server with the /games command.

    If you are on the Games server and wish to return to its main lobby, in most places you can use the Commands /v lobby or the teleportation portals provided. If you get stuck, use the /res unstuck command.

    Limited features(top)

    Because of its specialized status, certain EMC features are disabled on Games or are only usable in certain areas (such as in Mob Arena and SMP PvP arenas, where you can Vault kits from SMPs). The Group, Trade, Mail, Stables, and Vault systems are included in the list of limited features. Remember that it is against the rules to use exploits; if you find a bug, please report it to Developers immediately.
