What's going on in the world of Minecraft?

Just sitting here pondering what the heck is going on with Minecraft these days. After all the hullabaloo of the Bukkit Fiasco and then the Microsoft Buyout (not to mention the DMCA Takedown of craftbukkit) - it seems like Minecraft is on hiatus. All the while Pwn9 is sitting in the best shape Minecraft-wise in a long time with 2 (maybe 3, plus test servers) and half a dozen public maps, all for free with now paid ranks..  sitting completely empty (granted we're on 1.7.9 still).  All leaving me to wonder... is Minecraft still alive?  Who is still playing?  Where are you playing?  What sort of things can Pwn9 do while Minecraft is in neverland...

Let's assume Pwn9 won the lottery...

For arguments sake, lets say someone gave us a really BIG server to host minecraft on..  let's say this server was like.. 16X 3.0 Ghz CPU's, 128GB RAM with SSD storage on a 10G network.  What do you think we should do with all that horsepower?

Pwn9's GuildWars2 Guild BAMF kicking inactive members.

Our Guild BAMF has been growing in GuildWars2 and in order to continue to grow and do better as a guild we've setup a 1 month inactivity limit. Players who are gone for over 1 month without posting a notice in our GuildWars forum will be removed from the roster. If you've been removed and would like to re-join when you become active again, simply make a post, or send a PM to myself, king, rose or another leader in game.

Currently we are running +MagicFind, +KillXP  almost 24/7, so great time to be on GW2 and repping for BAMF

Say goodbye to Wolf:ET

Effective midnight EST, March 30th, the Pwn9 Sponsored, =HA= Wolf:ET server will be shutdown, perhaps forever. At one time in it's history this game server was in the Top 50 in the world when it was part of ]AR[ Clan, during a time when Wolf:ET was the #1 played game in the world according to X-Fire gametime stats at the time.  The ]AR[ Clan was home to some of the worlds BEST Wolf:ET players, including your very own tREMor who was ranked in the top 10 on SplatterLadder along with Mongoose (who was better than tREMor straight up, but focused more clan/team play than the public ladder) as well as players you've never heard off and some that are still around, like DreamPhreak of course and MagicPie, Tylerin, Bloodworn and more (under different names back then).

End of Pwn9

I tried to fight the credit card scamming of Reagan Greene aka DarkTemplar through PayPal, but in the end PayPal always side with the buyer. Fees and "chargebacks" resulting have put me in personal financial trouble such that, I can not continue to pay the balance on what it costs for the Pwn9 server per month.  With that, and the downfall of Minecraft of Pwn9 in terms of player base, and donations, I really have no choice but to close up shop.
