    Hey Everyone,

    See the end for a TL;DR.

    This has been a long time coming, but I have been putting it off for literally years. I simply do not play Minecraft anymore and I cannot justify leaving the server online for the extremely small number of players who do occasionally play. I will be shutting the server down July 31, 2020. All of the files will be backed up and saved to my PC, so nothing will technically be "lost". See the bottom of this post for links to download the world files! There are log files and player files with IP addresses in them and I would not want those to be released publicly.

    I want to thank every single one of you who spent time on MutinyCraft. There was a time that this server was basically my whole life. I would spend my days at college thinking about how the server was running or spend my summer days constantly interacting with players and making sure things ran as smoothly as possible. This was my life for several years and I wouldn't have had it any other way. There were so many great people who played the server over the years and I am lucky to have some of them as friends to this day. Even if I didn't talk to you much or you may not have even known who I was I still appreciate you spending time on MutinyCraft when there were thousands of other servers to choose from.

    Finally, if you are looking for old players or just want another Discord to join checkout: https://discord.gg/Juj4zC3 I'm not online much, but if you see me online feel free to message me and say hi. I really enjoy hearing from old players.

    Main World (8.02 GB): https://www.dropbox.com/s/6xh7rd5ibv4qwzu/main.rar?dl=0
    Adventure World (5.4 GB): https://www.dropbox.com/s/rf3vf4zv4fcsebk/adventure.rar?dl=0
    Old World (4.83 GB): https://www.dropbox.com/s/66jprb2kbz6jhd0/world.rar?dl=0
    Nether (617 MB): https://www.dropbox.com/s/4za7i0xl4fi3ocs/world_nether.rar?dl=0
    Warp List: https://www.dropbox.com/s/kwrdn861a0et893/warps.csv?dl=0

    TL;DR - I'm going to be turning the server off July 31, 2020. All the files will be saved and I have decided to release the world files to the public. The website will remain online for at least an additional month, but will also likely be saved and shut down.

      (TLDR there is none)

      Hey all,

      I'm new.
      Kidding.

      (Definitely not proofreading this or reading it again, good legacy am I right)

      I think I was the 6th person here. I'm sure Jigs can remind me exactly, but I've been here for around 10 years (since i was like 15?? wth) and got some things to say. I met Jigs and a bunch of other old players from Patrick Swarz, an Alpha Minecraft server in 2010 (?). After that Jigs said he was making a legit server so a bunch of us left. It was like the wild west at first on the server, just a few people in a small town (warp village). Pretty crazy to see how the server grew over time, but that just shows the testament of how a strong community fosters growth for more people to join in. Anyways I've lived through pretty much everything on the server and this message is going to be my tell all (I think, haha).

      1 first, like the first week on the server deathgoddess trained me, and taught me (incorrectly) how to use/jump in the nether. Very scary, and a little mod abuse :D haha.

      2 some staff and I were bored at some point and made a faction with our alts haha (dwbi, it was short lived), (I also had other alts like cultron, excommunications, quentinxhiskool in beyond, and I think that's it)

      3 I have a bunch of books written from people on the server from over the years writing down various lore and Mutinycraft culture. I'll be sharing them when I log on (especially on the last day).

      4 I bought Samuri_bake_pie's account so he could join the server from the alpha server in like 2010 haha (i'll take it back now :DDDD )

      5 I met Aigina irl (sorry Dodito! I regret not getting to meet with you when you were around)

      6 Gillyboy5 is my brother, I think a lot of staff had/have family on the server, so be sure to thank them for introducing you for all the good times haha.

      7 early on in the server i somehow glitched onto the top of the nether and Jigs let me have a house there. I built my 2nd house there and it's super ugly in classic Cake faction (I think Sadderday tried to hunt me for a staff killing event but it was impossible haha)

      8 at that nether house is a small hall of admins/some mods names signed, I suggest a wall somewhere with everyones names on signs for the last day of the server to commemorate.

      9 maybe all the staff that got dragon eggs can spawn them on the last day?

      10 Thank you all to everyone for reading this and making the formative years of my life entertaining and insightful. Without the server I can say I'd have turned out to be a totally different person for the worse. The people I've met here have given me fantastic advice, friendship, and a sense of community unlike anywhere else. Again thanks to Phil especially for all he's done. It's incalculable the positive effect your server has had for everyone that's had the pleasure of being a part of something so magical. Without you none of this would exist.

      POSTSCRIPT (skip if you're in a hurry, pffft).

      I'll be sure to check the Mutinycraft Discord daily when I'm feeling nostalgic, whenever since I know I'll always love the server. You can DM me there whenever, I'll try to be active (that is if I'm not busy streaming or editing for fun on the side: sidepoint, I recently revived my channel, ESSARGEE everywhere, shameless plug over).

      Anyways, the ramblings of an old 26 year old are now over for the most part. Hit me up on discord to trade stories about the server, I'm the unofficial historian haha, and remind me of any secret stories I didn't bring to light in this post! I also have some old screenshots, I encourage everyone to share them on discord.





      You're gonna carry that weight.

      It saddens me that this marks the end of a chapter in my life. I have so many fond memories of playing on this server. So happy to call Mutinycraft home! Hope to see yall on Discord :')

      The time on MutinyCraft had to be the best ever! I joined back in 2014 when Psychic94 introduced me to the server and after a week i was hooked. My afternoons after school were dedicated to Minecraft. A few months in I wanted to be even more helpful and try and become a staff member and eventually I was able to call myself a mod. I would stay on for hours just to wait for the next person to get on so I could help them and promote them. I eventually got my cousin on aka MR_B0ING and that was a mistake, but it was fun to jail him and kick him.

      I really hate to see the server go but I know it was coming and am honored to have played when it was in its prime. I have met so many people and have had so many good memories and will have them forever. If anyone wants to hit me up my Discord is Smelter_Demon#3357 and i am on just about everyday. What a great run thanks for the fun times !

      P.S. Thanks Jigs for making the special donor symbol and I am glad I could help keep the server running a little longer.

      It's pretty short notice, but it looks like a number of people are checking in sometimes to read replies. Why don't we all get on for the very last day and do something special. I'm sure plenty of people don't have anything to do lately, and for those who do, the 31st is a Friday. I think it would be nice.

      Even with the knowledge that the server would come to its end eventually, I would be lying if I said that took away from some of the punch of this announcement.

      I joined the server all the way back in 2012 after Psychic94 decided to give me a full-blown account, since we had connected through a personal server he ran which included my brother, Horseftw. Ian had integrated himself with the server months before I logged on, and had really found a sense of community within Mutiny, so I decided to log on one day to see how it was... Little did I know that the next close to half decade would be heavily influenced by the community of Mutinycraft, and the relationships that were formed within it. While I don't wish to tell their stories on their behalf, I feel it's important to extend my appreciation to both Matt and Ian for not only introducing me to Mutiny and Minecraft as a whole, but for just how positive of an influence they have been on my life both past and present.

      In examining how exactly to describe what this community has meant to me, one word continued to echo...growth. Watching this community grow from one of the most popular servers at the time, to a large group of people with genuine connections and friendships, to a close-knit group of people that I still consider dear friends to this day, the aspect of growth is one that reverberates through every connection on Mutiny I've had the pleasure of being involved in. No matter how close we were, I want to thank you all for being a part of this community, and helping to make those years what they were.

      Oh my god, I haven't been on the server in like, years, but the thought of it going away is just... It almost feels unreal. I met so many people on the server, some that I even regularly talk to to this day (*cough cough* valdeek *cough cough*). I practically grew up in this community, and it was one of the first spaces that I feel like I could really be myself.

      Thanks to everyone for all of the memories of this place, and thank you thank you thank you Jigs for running it for so long. I love y'all, hope to see y'all on the discord (add me! tisms#6871). <3

      Well, I'm not done with minecraft yet, so I spent some time looking around for a new server to join. I landed HERE and it seems OK.

      There are two survival servers, once you get into the hub. 'Phoenix' is v1.16, and 'Wyvern' is v1.15 at present. It gets really busy in the evenings (UK time) at present. I went into the 'Wyvern' one purely because I had 1.15 set up in the launcher at the time.

      I've spent a fair amount of time in there, over the last couple of days and it looks like I'll be staying. Amazing how you forget some of the basics after years with epic stats. Gotta love the MC wiki.

      I have tried to get into the mutiny discord a couple of times, but for some reason I can't post comments even though I can see others. Dunno why.

      I'll do my level best to get on Friday night (UK time).

      It has been the greatest honor of my life to serve with you fine people.

      I haven't logged in for a long time now that I have a family to take care of, but I will always cherish the time that I spent here with (mostly) all of you.

      Jigsaw, thank you for bringing us all together. I have made lifelong friendships here. May your balls forever glisten and glean with the shine of a thousand worlds.

      Oh no! Not the website too... :c I love you guys and I loved this server so much. Thank you, Jigsaw, for some of the best times of my life! I’m definitely gonna grab those world files... Idk how I’m gonna warp without those plug-ins though lol Also really want a copy of this website when it’s gone. I’ve got some pretty lengthy convos on here that I wouldn’t want to lose.. Somewhere around 3,000 pages for one of them(You know who you are <3). If you need to know where to send it, if you do send it... Just pm me.

      Love you guys!!!


      Edit: It’s now raining outside and the weather matches my face while reading all the comments.... I will miss this place so much!!!! I don’t even know if I still have access to my old MC account anymore... I really hope I can get into it so I can log on tomorrow for one last time.

      Hello old friends,

      I currently do not play this game anymore and thought to myself today, I wonder how mutiny is doing? I downloaded it on my laptop and come to find out its closing tomorrow. I cannot believe my childhood is closing haha. Anyways, I want to say farewells to everyone and thank you for literally being a staple in my younger years and life. I was young when this server was in its prime and did not know too many people, but just hope we all remember each other. With that being said, thanks for dealing with me, I'm sure I was a pain lol.

      Thank you guys, I can't say it enough, I'm incredibly sad typing this right now but so happy I was able to experience the server. Thanks jigsaw.

      Until next time,
      AirTime :)

      This server meant the world to me, as DAChubon stated, it rebuilt friendships, specifically ours. Had it not been for MutinyCraft, I wouldn't know my best friend as anything more than an elementary school rival. I'm surprised this server lasted this long, and I'm glad I'll get to see it go. Thank you to all the staff for cultivating a positive, yet competitive environment. After MutinyCraft couldn't update, I tried to find a new MC server, and I couldn't. All were either too PTW or too easy or just shitty. MutinyCraft was the definition of balance, and I think that word describes what it all brought into our lives. Balance. I would love to connect with anyone on the server, even if the memory was just a random troll moment. My discord is Rob#5217 and my instagra, is rob.moriarty

      It's hard to think about losing the memories from Mutiny. I made a lot of friends and had a lot of memorable experiences I still think about today, I'm so happy we got to have one last meeting before the server went down. If anyone wants to play a game or talk at all, you can find me on the MC discord or message me at skorsten#9835.

      Hey guys,

      It’s nomnom, or Quentin now. I want to thank you guys for an amazing childhood, memories and just a Great time in general. I started this server when I was in middle school, just a dumb young kid. I remember all the times on team speak screaming on the mics, fighting with Kawi, loving with Sadderday and beyond and starting my own factions. I’m reallyglad I met so many great people. I hope we can all relive the memories on discord.
      thank you jigsaw for keeping the server for so long and all the great times you created for all of us.
