    The End User License Agreement contains rules that Minecraft servers need to follow. Minecraft's EULA is designed to prevent pay-to-win situations and taking advantage of players. We are legally obligated to change our rank system to comply with the EULA.

    All current rank owners will keep their ranks. Our rank system will stay the same with the exception of the Ultimate rank. The price of the Ultimate rank is currently $320, and according to the EULA any rank over a hard limit of $200 is considered to be taking advantage of Mojang's intentions. Providing the ability to fly in-game to a paying customer is also a violation of the EULA. Due to these rules, we have decided to give Ultimate rank owners the Legend title.
    • VIP - $9.99
    • Premium - $19.99
    • Exclusive - $39.99
    • Elite - $79.99
    • Supreme - $159.99
    • Ultimate -> Legend - Priceless
    We always try our best to consider the best interests of rank owners and contributors to the server. We have been hard at work brainstorming ways to maintain the value of each rank while still being compliant with the EULA. Although this will be upsetting to many players, especially those who will miss the ability to fly, we will be providing Ultimate with the Legend rank. This rank will have all the EULA compliant perks of Ultimate and will be unobtainable unless you are a current Ultimate rank owner.

    The following rank perks are not compliant with the EULA and will no longer be available:
    • /fly
    • Changing Spawners
    • Fix
    • Heal
    • /feed (removed at a later date)
    • Breathing Underwater
    • Smelt
    • Nightvision (/nv)
    • Mini game bonus
    The following rank perks are not compliant with the EULA, and they will be given to all players:
    • Mine Spawners
    • View spawner info
    • Own 6 Creative Plots
    • Use WorldEdit in Creative
    • /speed in Creative
    • Clear plots in Creative
    • Download plot in Creative
    • /tpahere
    Removing rank perks is definitely not good news for people who've contributed to the server, but we are planning on adding these remarkable EULA-compliant features to VIP, Premium, Exclusive, Elite and Supreme to make up for it:
    • Glow Items - Give any item in your hand, a shiny enchanted effect.
    • Add Rows of Hearts - Change how many hearts displays on your client (10,20,30,40)
    • Fireworks - 30 Fireworks you can launch for spectacular effects! Ride your fireworks
    • Gadgets
      • Flamethrower - Spray flames all over to heat things up!
      • Raining Pigs - Special Delivery
      • Slime Party - Rock out with a group of slimes
      • Flappy Bird - Spawn a chicken, control it’s flaps, avoid any blocks!
      • TNT Tag - Tag, you're it! BOOM!
      • Apollo - Ride up on a rocket
      • Parachute - Open up a parachute with chickens that slowly drop you
      • TNT Fountain - Many activated TNTs shoot up in a fountain pattern
      • Tetherball - Spawn a tetherball chicken to play with a friend
      • Ghost Rider - Run around on fire
      • Rainbow - Create an gigantic awesome rainbow display
      • Railgun - Shoot fireworks from a gun
      • Walt Disney - Create an ice capsule around yourself
      • Pants Dance - Your pants flash different colors
      • XxPoopBlockxX - Create an poop bomb that explodes all over everything
      • Bat-a-rang - Shoot bats at players
      • Self Destruct - Fuse yourself, and explode over everything
      • Slime Storm - Many slimes come down and shatter
      • Fun cannon - Shoot fun with your gun
      • Paint Gun - Shoot buildings with paintballs and color the world!
      • Junk Jet - Shoots random items everywhere
    • Custom Furniture
    • Custom Blocks
    • Purchase Unwrappable Presents
    • Slot Machines
    • Chest Lock
    We are aware that many people will be upset because of these changes. However, we are looking forward to moving forward and running a server that will be more fair and fun for all players. We are very excited to take a step back, add all the new features, and improve the rank system as a whole. Thank you for supporting the server.

    So what's the point of VIp-Supreme? If all players can mine spawners, /worldedit, etc. What unique perks will we get now?

    Wow, this is big news. I hope people don't get too torn up about this, because the community is what matters, not these little perks that you spend your money on. I love all the new ideas, especially the gadgets! Even though some exciting features are gone, I still love Meep and it's wonderful community. ;)

    Well then, if there's no other option, I guess we just have to comply. I was about to buy Ultimate, but I guess that's no longer an option :/

    I hope it that this was April Fools :(

    Have a good day :)

    I love this server to bits. I'd rather lose /fly than have the whole server gone. Sure, it is sad to see beloved commands gone that helped gaming on Meep, but just look at all those cool new features and gadgets coming out! I am definite it will make up for what we lost.

    It's change for the better, keep your heads up high guys, it is not the end of the world! :)

    Knew it was going to happen sooner or later. Glad to see you guys are willing to comply with silly rules that a money hungry company created!

    I am happy with it since I play for the towns. It is unfortunate that staff get the backlash when they have to comply with these changes or have the server shut down. Thank you for the new changes so I can continue to play Meep.

    Add a FAQ by players somewhere here.

    I got some questions myself.

    What happens to already /fix'd or /spawner'd stuff?
    How about other commands such as /workbench, /echest, /ptime, /ph spawn in creative, /pack, /unpack, /back, /rename, and /sethome. What are going to happen to those commands?
    Do Legend ranked members get more new features/perks than other ranks?
    When are the new gadgets and other cool stuff going to be available in MeepCraft?
    Do Architects still get fly in survival?

    I guess I'm excited for this:
