Rate your server - Brutally Honest!

3 emeralds 51 replies 511 views | started 11/10/2017 2:12 pm by JonSnovv
Hey Guys!

I will be rating servers on this topic. I will score the server a mark out of 100 based on originality, flair and how the community and staff are. I will be brutally honest!

Marking Criteria:
Spoiler - click to reveal
Originality: /25 - How original is the your server? Has the idea been done before thousands of times?

Functionality: /25 - How well does your server function for what it is? Is there glitches? Will I get lost or stuck somewhere? do the plugins work?

Flair: /25 - How well is your idea executed? Have you built your own spawn? Does the style of the buildings fit with the style of the server?

Community: /25 - Do you have mature staff? Is there a constant player base? Are your rules fair?

Bonus: - I can award bonus marks if I believe that your server has potential. For example if your server is original and works well but lacks a player base I will award extra marks.

Nice idea for the servers. both have potential. On the space one - maybe give a little more info on how to travel to different planets / use your ship. With the marvel one I wasn't entirely sure what I was doing. I was aimlessly walking around a city (which is a really nice build) Maybe give a little more direction in what to do and how to play that. Possibly use mythic mobs or something to populate the city with civilians and maybe even bad guys. The lobby/hub was quite bad. It didn't look great and I fell off and died as soon as I spawned.

Thanks, I reasonably get why the ratings were a little low. But we're working on giving each server more emphasis to avoid confusion, thanks.

I liked your server. A simple concept very well executed with a nice chat layout and easy to follow instructions. The spawn could maybe be a tiny bit bigger? Its a shame there aren't very many players though.

- Server Name: Ethel.Mc-Srv.Com
- Website: Ethel.Ml
- Store: EthelShop.Ml
- Version: 1.9 but try 1.8.9 just to make sure.

- Info: Ethel Factions is a faction server (duh) in beta it came out of alpha around the ending of September. The server is probs your average faction server with the usual plugins like... Custom Enchants. But there is KoTH and soon PvP.

- Any other info: A lot of time was put into it (besides spawn) because we don't have builds or staff so we downloaded one until we can get some builders to help us out. There aren't many players but I started advertising it recently and the voting system is still being worked on. I think the server is good I tested a lot of the things so everything SHOULD be working fine. But there is always room for improvements :3

As you said, you downloaded the spawn, So I wont take that into account. The server felt like it had a nice style despite it being very unoriginal. I spoke to a mod who had access to /v and permission to spawn in items - Moderators should not have access to these commands if they are playing alongside regular players. When I asked him why he had access to /v he rudely exclaimed "Dont tell us how to run our server". Another major issue with the server is that its still in 1.8.9 ... you really need to update if you want people to join.

Hello, can you tell me the mods name? I made sure all the staff ranks are "fair" the only rank with creative is builder and owner none of the staff ranks have creative or any type of perm to "spawn in items" also /v was a big issue and it wasn't allowed at first but a lot of staff asked for it.

Vivian's Factions

When I joined I was impressed by the tutorial/spawn place - it was refreshing to see a spawn that isn't some kind of glorified box. The general concept of the server (factions pvp raiding) is very unoriginal and overdone which means you are less likely to attract new players to your server. My advice is to come up with an idea to make the server more original.

I joined all 4 of your servers. Ill give a mini review of each server then base the score on the average of all of the servers.

Freebuild:
It was evident that little effort was put into the spawn - the idea of the server was very boring and unoriginal.

Factions:
Again, an extremely dull spawn, if you can even call a flat patch of stone slabs a spawn. Factions is extremely overdone.

Anarchy:
I'm not a fan of the concept of anarchy servers. However this one is evidently terrible. There was no spawn or players except from 2 afk people, presumably staff.

KitPVP:
This was the best of the 4 servers. The spawn was fairly nice and it was clear and well organized. It's a shame there was no players online to actually PVP with.

Having 0 players online was a recurring theme on all 4 servers. Understandably I wasn't online at peak times but I doubt anyone would even want to play here. My best advice is just to focus on ONE server to start with until it has enough players active to branch out (if needed). Try using your imagination and utilizing your discord server to come up with an original idea for a server and execute it with skill.

A typical hub server with the usual mini-games. (survival, creative, skyblock. etc) everything seemed to be functional. Although I joined on a weekday (not peak time) it seemed like there was somewhat of a community. The idea of the server isn't very original or unique however if its true you have been running for 5 years that is impressive.

When I first connected I had high hopes for this server, I really enjoyed the tutorial as it gave a professional impression. The more I played and walked around I noticed it was fairly messy, you had a load of plugins (some of which I believe are quite unnecessary). The warps for the different biomes didn't work and the terrain near spawn was very messed up - lots of griefed buildings and craters. The spawn was quite boring (probably downloaded). However I can see potential in the server.

Thanks for the feedback. You said that the warps don't work? But then you say the terrain near spawn is messed up?
1) You can't even escape spawn, it's all walls. The spawn is not downloaded either.
2) The warps do work and I even had some players test them.

You aren't really a great reviewer either - you fail to state anything good about the server. We have tons of programming and scripts which are custom which aren't even mentioned. All of our plugins are organized into a nice /help menu.

Not trying to be rude, just saying what I think.

Craft Your Town

Quite a nice server from what I saw. Towny, a pretty good player base, quests and slimefun. The spawn seemed fairly boring - a spawn you would typically see on a factions server. The chat was an absolute mess - The very disorganized titles with the &k magic letter thing. Hurts my brain :P but overall fairly good.

When I first joined I could see that this server was quite original however literally nothing worked haha. I couldn't get past the mage - I'm assuming the torch was the button but I don't think I had permission to use it so the door didn't open despite the mage telling me to go through.

Come back here when you can get stuff to work! :)

The name of the server says it all - simple prison. Nothing wrong with it however there is not many original features. Why would a player want to play on your server over another prison server? correct me if i'm wrong; you downloaded a prison map and a few prison plugins then put it online.

I liked how there are shops and player plots as well as cells. if there were lots more players it would be worth playing but unfortunately your server, the way it is, will never attract that many players.

Logged on and had a look around. obviously it is a fairly basic prison server, there was nothing wrong with it however you could implement some features that make the server different to the thousands of other prison servers out there. I did like the way the prison was built, that made it stand out slightly.
