PVP has been disabled indefinitely

BlockHermit 1.8 is here!

The tempory whitelist has been removed, now we're open for everyone again.

There are still some things for us to do, but BlockHermit is back in business with the new 1.8 map!

Anyone with saved builds from the old map can get them placed once they've picked a new region if they want, or just start from new.

1.8 Vanilla update is expected to happen sometime this coming May. But because our server runs on a spiggot client, our server will have to wait until spiggot releases a compatible 1.8 update. From 1.6 to 1.7, we waited about three or four months because of the big overhaul of updated codes that bukkit and spiggot had to rewrite to make it compatible. For this reason, we cannot release a decent estimate as to ...
