As you know, Season 2 launched yesterday after an unfortunate 30 minute delay (sorry!).

It would seem that for whatever reason :rolleyes:, player counts have shifted from Red to Blue, making Blue the dominant server now. It'll be interesting to see how that plays out.

I know this reset isn't any bigger than the last, and that makes some of you sad. There was competition lined up to play, but some of them quit because the reset wasn't as big as they had hoped. I know many of you were hoping for something bigger than last season and I regret having to disappoint you on that.

We are always exploring smaller YouTubers to hire, our attempts to contact and get a commitment have often been unsuccessful. This time around we had a few but they ended up being non-committed and mostly inactive. I only blame myself and I will continue to explore potential YouTubers to hire in order to drive new traffic to Origin.

Overall I'm satisfied with the work that our team has put into this...

Here are the top voters for December!


You guys just love to make life awkward for us :p. As every single person on vote top has managed to achieve 93 votes, we decided to add up the usual amount of money distributed (That equalled $350) and split it between all 10 of you ($35 each) - We collectively agreed that this is the fairest way to share the rewards.

All amounts are store credit.
* Please note that all amounts are not discounted with any sale.

If you are on this list, please start a conversation with me or @Yacobb using this format:

The final event of Origin Season 1! /f top has been closely contested throughout the map on both Blue and Red and this Raid Event should help to decide the winners. 5000 Points are up for grabs, so make sure to be well prepared with PvPers and Cannoners if you wish to try and win this event.

7PM GMT/ 2PM EST on 7th January


Where: There will we be a /warp raid

Information: Due to popular complaint from the last Raid Event, this one will be more challenging. The base will be protected by over 60 walls with different kinds of protection including slab, obsidian and trapdoor filters. The max claim limit for cannons will be 5x5 chunks, and extra claims will be removed (We will be online to moderate this) - This doesn't include counter cannon claims. Once again, cannoning materials will not be provided so make sure to start collecting resources from now.

To achieve the points from the raid event, you need to...

Due to popular demand, we will be implementing a TNT grace period. This was originally a suggestion made by @Eisforecho and was very positively received by the community.

Being with your family during Christmas is more important than your Minecraft base. We encourage everyone to enjoy their Christmas without fear of someone cannoning through your base.

TNT explosions will be disabled from Dec 23 @ 12 AM EST to Dec 26 @ 12 AM EST.

That's all I have for now, but stay tuned because I have an upcoming announcement planned regarding some changes to ranks. We'll be taking a good look at buffing ranks and making up for the value that's been lost with the removal of kit1 spawners.
