Today marks 3 whole years since I first created The Mushroom Co. Survival Server, on the 10th of April 2012. I can't believe it's really been that long and am still amazed as to how far the server has come!
Last year I celebrated the second anniversary by writing a breif synopsis of the server's history, and I couldn't do that again this year could I? Nothing much of significance has happened really other than a new map on the 17th of June 2014 and then the 1.8 update. So instead of representing the server's history with text, what about using an image this time. A graph!
Gaps in the graph indicate periods of missing data, and unfortunately before the 1.7 update it was really hard to group data by days and I had to do it manually. The graph starts on the 9th of December 2012 because if you didn't already know, that was the date the server was publically "completed" and became properly hosted and 24/7. Data before that would be inaccurate as all the plugin data was reset on that date too.
I am proud to say that as of yesterday the 9th of April 2015 exactly 78,540 unique players have joined the server from over 150 different countries in the 28 months since the 9th of December 2012.
Thank you to everyone who has enjoyed and supported the server over the past years, I hope we all continue to have fun together in the future.
Oh and about the state of survival games and mob arena, I need to test survival games first before it is put back into the server as it is outdated and may cause issues. Mob arena however is functionable however a section for it still needs to be setup at spawn and it could do with a few more arenas and customisation in the configuration.
