This Monday, May 20th, Bebop will be announcing a build contest. That's right folks, you heard it here first!
We don't have many details yet (including contest specifics), but what we do know is that this is going to have the potential to be massive. We are expecting a large scale increase in the traffic visiting our server. We also expect there may be live streaming by Bebop and other popular players.
So what is going to change?
First and foremost, when you log in after the news is announced, you will notice that our server IP will be redirected to a new server that is full of creative plots only. It's a dedicated server that will host increased traffic without any noticeable changes to your game play experience.
It is very important to note that the old server will be left up! You will not be losing your builds, homes, towns, ranks or anything on the MCM server as they exist pre-contest. Those will remain on MCM but will not be transferred to the temporary server and you will not be able to access them from the usual server IP.
If you still want to connect to MCM and not the contest server, use IP...
