Ranks Information
  • On Empire Minecraft, there is a wide variety of ranks a player can obtain both in-game and on the forums. Each rank has its own perks (some simply contain new titles) and methods to obtain that rank. Some ranks transfer over from the forums to in-game, and some do not.

    Supporter Ranks(top)


    Empire Minecraft is a business, and, like any business, EMC needs a source of income to operate. Like many Minecraft servers, EMC offers a wide variety of supporting options that all come with special perks. The three ranks that are available are Iron, Gold, and Diamond. The ranks are based off how much you pay per month. For more information on these primary supporter levels, their perks, and how to purchase them, visit the Supporter page.

    Staff Ranks(top)


    Staff members are the wonderful people who help keep Empire Minecraft a safe and fun place to play. There are quite a few staff ranks depending on the job and its seniority.

    Moderator & Mod in Training(top)

    The Moderator rank is the entry-level rank into the staff team. Moderators help enforce rules and keep the Community in check. The Moderator rank is the gateway position to higher staff ranks, such as Senior Staff and Administrator. They have access to Square, Stage, and they have the ability to both ban and mute players.

    You can apply to be a Moderator here.

    Developer(top)

    Developers are the people that help write code for Empire Minecraft. They are also of equal rank and function compared to Moderators. Developers are hand-picked by the Owner and the Lead Developer, who is Aikar, and must be U.S. residents who are older than 18 (for legal reasons). Entry level developers have a blue-colored username, and have similar powers to Moderators, while developers of higher ranks (Senior Staff or Administrator) maintain a color relevant to their rank.

    While there is no set method of obtaining this rank, it is recommended that those who wish to become a developer on EMC apply to be a staff member for the possibility of being accepted.

    Senior Staff(top)

    Senior Staff members are staff members who have extended responsibilities and powers, such as Creative mode access, WorldEdit access, and more. They also offer Senior Staff Services.

    The Senior Staff rank is obtained through a promotion, so, to be considered for the rank, apply to be part of the staff team first.

    Administrator(top)

    Administrators are the head managers of Empire Minecraft. They have similar in-game powers to Senior Staff members, but with extra powers. The rank is rarely given out, but all Administrators started off as Moderators.

    To be considered for the Administrator role, apply to become a staff member.

    Community Teams Ranks(top)


    The Community Teams are the Groups of dedicated people who, depending on the team they belong to, help make YouTube videos, build on the server, post blog posts, or update the wiki. There are three separate ranks for these jobs: the Stream Team, the Build Team, and the Contribution Team. For more information on these ranks and how to obtain them, click here.
