Finally, Winter has arrives, and it is showing no mercy already. Here on the East Coast of the United States, we're getting blanketed. I can actually watch the snow falling as I type this, which is quite the nice view. But whether or not we get 3 or 30 inches, Maestrea isn't going to stop because of a little snow! Here are your weekly updates:
Hey everyone! Hope all you lovelies had an amazing Christmas and New Years! Good luck to all of you who have New Years resolutions. I know I'll need the good luck xD I probably won't be able to continue them for a month. A lot of you are probably saying "new year new me" but don't change too much about yourselves D= y'all are amazing and it wouldn't be the same without the wonderful community =D
Greetings all Maestreans!
HAPPY NEW YEAR Y'ALL! May your 2019 bring upon all kinds of joy and be 100x better than 2018! Hopefully those of you at the legal drinking age are feeling okay after the celebrations
Thanks to everyone for voting and supporting the server once again this November!
I joined Maestrea way back in 2016, which honestly feels like a lifetime ago. Nevertheless, I've stuck around for all these years, taking a few breaks but mostly staying active. Now, 2019 is already almost here, and it makes me realize that I must really love Maestrea to stay around this long . Anyways, enough about me, time to see all of the awesome updates!
If you're been on for the last hour or so you might have noticed some of your store rank perks have changed, and don't worry, it's intentional.
We've decided to go back on some things we changed, regarding the eula compliance and essentially undo the eula change.
We discussed among the voters (discord role, check it out on our discord), admins and staff and it's been finalized and implemented.
Sorry for not giving you guys a heads up. but we felt it would be easier to change it all and then post about it afterwards.
To fix the issue with some people having ranks from pre-eula and post-eula we've added some more ranks as a seperate rank ladder and moved everyone over there depending on what rank/s you had.
Additionally, the perks gotten from contributor has been added to champion, and any time you had on contributor has been moved over to champion!
When we did the server transfer we came to the unfortunate realization that our hourly backups have been crashing due to a rate limit we did not know about.
The database somehow got wiped, and we have no backups. This was in no way intentional and was a mix of several things going wrong at the same time.
This means: Jobs, LWC, Achievements, McMMO, Ranks (Donor and in-game), Permissions, Titles you've used & Towny data (Towns, residents, plots) has been deleted. Even on Skyblock. What wasn't deleted: The world, items(inventories, backpacks, enderchests), Skyblock islands and challenges.
While we were determining our options we found that a hard reset would have to happen in the future to update to 1.13. More information about this can be found here.
We also found that the cons outweighed the pros on keeping...
Here for an (un)limited time, the Maestrean carnival! Enjoy the thrill of rides held together with a single screw, see the amazing half-woman, half-giraffe, and most importantly, all the cotton candy you can eat! "Didn't Sideshow take over the Carnival" you say? Nonsense! These fairgrounds are still family fun in the fading sun! Bring your friends, bring your family, and bring your souls smiles!

No one sleeps tonight! That's right, this is your late breaking news, here with the coolest duck around. Better than breakfast in bed or chilling in your PJs all day, we've got the best collection of all the updates, fixes and content around! So, let's let sleeping dogs lie, and get right to it, the Weekly Update! A-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh...

A Challenger Approaches!
You may be wondering, "Why did we not get last Sunday's update?" Well, two reasons. One, I went on vacation and got some rest. Two, we released so much stuff last weekend, fixed so many bugs this week, and overall had sooo much going on that we decided to just have a super awesome mega DOUBLE post this week!
For those of you celebrating Independence day this week, you could say we wanted to kick off the Summer Brawl event with a BANG (that somehow blew up last week's updates. That's reasonable, right?)
Brace yourselves, the updates are coming! (Updates kept in order of release for clarity)
Greetings all Maestreans! Good morning/afternoon/evening to you all! We hope everyone has enjoyed their time playing yet another great and content filled month here at Maestrea, and can you believe it? Glad everyone has still had time to vote while duking it out against all the new and great dungeon content!
Thanks to everyone for voting and supporting the server once again this June!
Attention all Agents, report for duty immediately!
We've received reports of some mysterious figures lurking around a nearby volcano. It's up to you figure out what they're up to, and bring an end to it.
Your Senior Agent might not be able to join you, but don't worry: We've got just the thing for the job.
With an upgrade to your previous radio, you can keep in touch with your mentor, and even keep track of your current objectives. (Note: D3 takes place primarily through the use of this new radio feature! If for some reason you lose it, you MUST restart, or contact an Admin.)
As this Dungeon is more dangerous, you will be required to rank up to Field Agent to ensure you've recieved ample training.
But most importantly, be on the look out for signs of Black Nova, a criminal organization on the rise...
We be plundering the seas in search of the finest treasures! Me hearties and I be bringing ye landlubbers our bounties of updates, fixes and new content! So hoist the anchor, mate, we're setting sail into the Weekly Update!
I certainly don't. What kind of baker only makes muffins? Personally I prefer cakes. But pastry preferences aside, there's one thing I do know - and that's that Maestrea is awesome and always strives to have a better tomorrow. And that means having updates! So many updates, so little time. Maybe the Muffin Man can whip you up some snacks for an even better update-reading-experience?
Enjoy your fresh-baked Maestrea-filled Updates!
He'll start asking what's new on Maestrea. To which we say, "There are these awesome posts on the forums that tell you all the updates for the week. We're pretty sure they're written by a duck, but that duck could also be a cat on the duck's laptop. Cool, right?"
Yes. Very cool. And the mouse thinks so too. But it also wants a glass of milk.
