Voting Information & Bonuses

  • Empire Minecraft gives players the option to earn Rupees each day by voting, which is extremely rewarding both for players and the server.

    How to vote(top)

    You can vote by clicking on the links below. When you are voting on multiple sites, the best method is to right click the links and open them all in separate tabs or use the Easy Voting option. The voting page can be found here.

    Each Site is different, but most of the time, you will have to fill in your username - when you are doing this, make sure it includes the same characters and capital letters that your username does in-game, and complete a captcha. The captcha is usually a puzzle, picture, or word challenge.
    If you enter your name incorrectly, even if a player with that name does not exist on the Empire, the voting Site will still say that player voted and you will not receive another chance to put the correct name until your waiting period is over.

    How the voting system works(top)

    Each vote on each day will get you 100 Rupees.

    Empire Minecraft also has a chain multiplier bonus that can be obtained. If you vote two days in a row, you will earn a 100-rupee bonus on your first vote for the second day. Each additional day after that (as long as you have voted days in a row without missing a day) will get you a 10-rupee bonus added to the next days first vote. Day three in this example would earn you 210 Rupees on your first vote. The next day would be 220 Rupees, and so on up to a maximum of 300 Rupees per day for the first vote. Once you're at 300 Rupees a day for your first vote, it will remain like that each day until you miss voting a day, in which case the scenario will reset for you.

    You have 30 hours from your last vote until your bonus is lost. However, it does not completely reset, and you will also only lose several streak increments if you continue to vote after the missed period. It is advised that you vote on a couple of sites at a time on multiple occasions throughout the 24 hours to ensure that your bonus is safe.

    Rupees are automatically credited after you vote, and you can check whether or not you were credited by checking your Transaction History.

    Tips and Voting Rewards(top)

    • The number of sites that you can vote on and the voting system can always change. Make sure you check back to the Empire News forums often!
    • It is advised that you vote on a couple of sites at a time on multiple occasions throughout the 24 hours to ensure that your bonus is safe.
    • A tip to consider when trying to remember to vote every day is by bookmarking all the sites in a folder. Voting really helps EMC!
    Voting is a great way to earn Rupees, items, and most importantly, it is a great way to help the Empire grow!

    Rupees and Token Rewards

    Currently, your rupee reward grows as it gets up to a vote bonus of 10 days. After 10 days, you get 700 Rupees for the first Site you vote on that day (if it is, you are awarded 900 Rupees instead) and 100 Rupees for any other sites (besides, to which the reward is 300 Rupees) if you haven't voted on that Site already that day. Tokens are awarded at 5 for every individual vote. On top of the standard rupee and token reward systems, there are special bonuses packed in the system which are as follows:

    Every 150 days4500
    Every 200 days6000
    Every 365 days10000

    Item Rewards

    When earned, items will be mailed to you via the Mail System, and the Rupees will be added to your balance. There are two types of item rewards: the ones that can be earned multiple times, and the ones that can be earned only once per player. The current bonuses are as follows:

    Patterned item bonuses(top)

    Routine Rewards
    Every 3 daysOne Diamond
    Every 5 daysOne Emerald
    Every 20 daysVault Voucher
    Every 50 daysStable Voucher

    One time items(top)

    Additional Rupees, token bonuses, and items are only awarded when your vote bonus reaches a number higher than it has been before. For example, if you vote and get your streak up to 20, you earn a Vault Voucher. However, if you miss a day and your streak goes down, and then gets back up to 20, you will not earn another Vault Voucher until your streak gets to 40. This doesn't include higher voting streaks prior to the addition of specific rewards, meaning that all the earned items will be added together and sent to you next time your streak goes up.

    Voters Item Replacement Policy(top)

    If a player loses a Voters item due to a glitch, a lag test, derelict claim, or misplacement, the player may request a replacement item from the Senior Staff members once per item, while agreeing to the following conditions upon request:
    • The item is not sold/loaned to another player at time of request.
    • The player has actually tried to look for the item in all vaults, chests, ender chests, inventories, or other possible locations across the SMPs. If Senior Staff find the original while searching, the replacement use for the item will still apply.
    • The player will return the duplicate to a SS+ in the case the original is located.
    • The player must have attained the voting bonus associated with the item.
    • Replacement of the item will be written in the player's Square logs for evidence record.
    • If the player is found to be abusing the replacement system to gain duplicate Voters Items, the punishment will be the same as exploiting a glitch: a permanent ban.
    If a Voters item is lost as a result of an account purge because of a ban, the Voters item(s) will not be replaced. However, your voting bonus will also be reset to 0, allowing you to re-earn your Voters items. Note that a bonus reset will count as your one replacement.

    There's a lot that makes up the Empire. Learn a bit about us, how it all works and how to thrive in it.
