Hear ye, hear ye! The time has finally arrived! It's time to announce our new upcoming game mode: "Emperor"! It will replace our current game mode "Empress". It's been in development for a while and there are a lot of changes. From new Culture's Mechanics, Units, Wonders, Structures, and many more features. The server will also be going from Minecraft 1.12.2 to 1.16.5.
Here are a couple of videos that can refresh your mind on some of the features we've been developing : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=enq7bzTRccE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=poCaA-Uqk Don't forget to subscribe so that you can stay up to date on feature highlights!
We will release a fully updated wiki in the upcoming weeks so everyone can get into the game with the same knowledge. We plan on releasing it into an Open Beta phase on April 24th at 6:00 PM GMT+2, 1:00 PM ET, 10:00 AM PT. This means there will be a downtime of about one month. If you wish to participate in the Beta please remember that bugs and balance might be a bit rough around the edges.
In addition to the release of Emperor, the game mode will be rebranded as Empires & Emperors.
If you have any questions you are free to ask them in the #general chat. We hope to see you all online during the launch of the Beta phase! Sincerely, Hexa-Network & Empires and Emperors Staff.
