    Hello people who are still active on the forums.

    Now you should all know the cessation of the Minecraft server "Xeal" has occurred and is still occurring. What I am here today is for the good of the server. Around the same or before my favourite server on Unturned died. It re-opened a couple weeks ago buts its player base had gone. We need Xeal to come back with more strength then ever before, get the staff back and improve the environment on Minecraft, because Minecraft NEEDS servers like this.

    My Plan on how to do this.
    Wuggle said this "facing difficulties managing such an established server". This often happens with established servers and can be easily fixed. Many people really wanted staff and so did I. It was a great accomplishment to get staff on Xeal and you were respected for that. Global Admins needs to take more of a active part in finding staff and taking all into consideration and talk about them. As I have said above you should also split the ranks into two, one dedicated to finding hackers and the other moderating chat etc.

    Wiggle also stated "insufficient funding". Lowering the price of Donator kits to a minimum of 5$ and going up to 40$. Some of the kits should include. If the donator ranks are a lower price than more beginner players will decide to buy them meaning more donations. You could also save on things such as the Anti-Cheat, we have thousands of players at least one of them should know how to make plugins/anti-cheat for the server to save on some things. It should NOT cost the amount it is now.

    Actually, it is not that easy. Considering that there are many factors causing server had to be closed.
    We tried that before, we even tried lowering staff requirement to allow more people can became staff. However, the biggest problem is, most of the player during that time don't want apply for Initiate and Adept. There are some Novice and Initiate have a very good potential to became Helper or Builder but problem is they don't want to apply new ranks or apply for staff ranks.
    Forcing them to became staff is not a good idea because forcing things that people don't want to do only makes things worse.
    Another problem is, most of the staff are busy with their lives.
    For example, Wuggle currently pursuing his academic at Polytechnic. Mentioned here: https://xealgaming.net/threads/xeal-minecraft-farewell.15646/

    I, myself are busy with my STPM(or A level) and got a student council need to run.

    Befor Xeal closing down, our Manager Edue was busy with his exam.

    Even we have enough man power to handling players and maintaining server's order. Our business with our real-life business has caused us unable to push out update for all players. This also explain why few months before server's closing our update was kinda small, doesn't contain anything major features and slow application process.
    Wiggle Wiggle Wiggle

    Anyways, running a server requires a lot of money.
    1) Internet
    If internet speed is not fast enough, it will be like most of the Asia server. Player definitely doesn't like a server that lagging every few minutes.
    2) Electricity
    Server owner have to keep their server running for 24/7 to make sure player can join it anytime. This would cost increase in power usage.
    3) Maintenance
    Because running a server for 24/7 might cause computer(or server) broken. If the system broken down, server owner might need to buy replacement part to fix the server.
    Also, to make sure things go smooth, it might require high end pc. Hosting a server using low end pc can save a lot of money but the server will became laggy and run out of space easily.

    There are other factors that can cost money too but these 3 are some of the main factors that requires server owner spend their money
    Separation of powers would be nice. But in my personal opinion, our staff are capable of finding hackers and moderating chat at the same time.
    Before Xeal closing down, we tried to change make changes to our Donor ranks to prevent the The Damned EULA from banning our server for violating the compliance.

    The new EULA compliance forced us have to sell bunch of cosmetics that doesn't serve any useful purpose to the donator themselves. I'm pretty sure most of the people donate to server so that they can obtain more command and perks that normal player cannot have. With this EULA we cannot sell these useful perks to our donors and some of the donor exclusive perks are forcibly allowed to all normal players(unlock from applying ranks).

    However, after the server closing I have been playing on other server. As a Nomad player, I keep changing the server I played on with the reason I am not happy with staff for not taking their server seriously and constantly having lag spikes). From my observation, some of these server still selling perks that violating EULA and these server haven't been banned.

    Maybe if someone want to reopen Xeal, they should just go selling these perks and ignoring EULA

    Simply said, these solution are not enough to help fixing problem that we have faced. There are a lot of things need to be considered before we have 'chance' to 'resurrect' Xeal.

    I am still waiting for the NewXeal to open.
    Maybe Darkser will consider all the factors you have suggested and put into his server, I highly doubt it.

    EULA, EULA, EULA boys..

    You got to know how to work within' the EULA.

    You are allowed to sell in-game items so long as they don’t affect gameplay

    We don’t mind you selling items in game, but they must be purely cosmetic. Pets, hats, and particle effects are OK, but swords, invincibility potions, and man-eating pigs are not. We want all players to be presented with the same gameplay features, whether they decide to pay or not.

    That EULA also killed a lot of KitPvP servers. ;)
