    We will be undergoing an extended maintenance around Halloween for some BIG changes! Here's the full breakdown:

    Hardware Upgrades
    As many of you may have already noticed, we've outgrown the current hardware on our servers. Thanks to everyone's support of Good Gaming Minecraft, I'm proud to announce that we'll be massively upgrading our dedicated machines! For the fellow nerds out there, we expect to be rocking at least four overclocked I7-7700K's, as well as two I7-6700K's, and over 320GB of dedicated RAM (aka Dedotated WAM).

    With hardware changes also comes other back-end upgrades, such as a new, faster permissions system and a ton of other optimizations.

    ► Insane Prison 1 Reset?
    Here at GGMC, we aren't big fans of resetting everyone's progress. In fact, we've never done a reset to date. However, sometimes there comes a time in a game modes life where it needs to be reset. Prison 1 has been on a downward spiral ever since its little brother, Prison², took the spotlight. On top of that, we've made so many critical changes/improvements to our infrastructure since Prison 1 was first released that the OG Prison server can't even be updated.

    Sooo... We are bringing it up to snuff. Currently set to happen on Saturday, November 4th @ 12PM EST, what is currently "Insane Prison 1" is going to be wiped clean and replaced with a shiny new "Insane Prison" which will come packed with the same suite of features found in Insane Prison². This means a fresh new economy and a fresh new set of leaderboards are coming, along with an all new spawn! We are also going to try to keep the same HUGE mines that gave Prison 1 it's own flavor.

    What Bout' Legends?
    Insane Prison 1 introduced the coveted "Legends" rank, only attainable by players who reached Prestige 50. After the reset, there will no longer be any way to obtain the Legends rank (for now). Players who managed to get the rank before the reset, however, will be able to keep it forever. Now, I know a lot of players that are on the brink of Prestige 50 but are not sure they can make it before the Monday reset. Which brings me to my next note:

    Stacking Boosters
    Starting now, and until the Prison 1 reset, all Prison 1 boosters will STACK. This means that every time someone activates a booster on Prison 1, it will add onto the total booster amount instead of adding onto the timer! This means, for example, if two players start global 2x eCoins boosters, the eCoins booster will be x4. Another example would be if one player were to start two 5x OPGG boosters, the global booster would then be 10x! With this feature in place, there is now a REAL chance for ANYONE to get legends before the reset! I'll be on Prison periodically throughout the weekend applying 10x and 15x OPGG boosters as well, so hop on in!

    ► The Future of Insane Prison(s)
    With the Prison 1 reset, as well as all of the upgrades we are making, we will be able to sync updates between the two wonderful Insane Prison modes. This means that moving forward, it's going to be much easier for us to add more ways to make money and eCoins are coming, more profits from mining, more upgrades, and potentially more Miners as well!

    Let me know what you guys think of all this. And to all the SkyBlock players out there, you're not forgotten! We have some BIG updates in the works for SB as well ;)

    P.S. Don't forget to check out our 40% OFF Halloween sale, going on this weekend only! Visit the GGMC Store here.

    I agree, perhaps a restart of the gamemode is always nice. It's kinda boring when a person dominates the entire server. :lol:
