MCS Minecraft 1.8 Update Giveaway!

Welcome one and all to the MinecraftServers.net 1.8 update giveaway!

A lot has happened since we last posted an update here: our new payment system went online, we passed 4500 servers listed(and still growing!), blown right through 10 million hits(now well over 12m!), not to mention the largest Minecraft update since Halloween last year.

For all this and more, we want to give back with a contest. You by no means have to purchase anything to participate.

 

So what are we giving away?

-1 Grand Prize winner will win any server listed on MinecraftServers.net a free upgrade to Diamond level listing for 30 days, putting them right on the front page, driving tons of players their way.

-10 runner-ups will receive a hand-made creeper cozy, beanie, or wrist band, courtesy of Lilac’s Lovables, free! We’ll even ship it out to you. Take a look! These winners will also have the opportunity to get any server of their choice a free upgrade to an Iron level listing on MinecraftServers.net for 30 days, helping them take their servers to the next level with a diversifying style and upgrades like images in the listing.

 

So now for the important questions:

Q: How do I enter?

A: There are two ways to enter:

Step 1: Like us on Facebook or Register an Account on this blog

Step 2:  Leave a comment with a link to your favorite server’s listing on MinecraftServers.net and tell us why it is best or why it deserves to win! If you liked us on Facebook, write on our wall! If you chose to register an account with us, leave a comment on this post!

Q: Can I enter my own server?

A: Of course! If you’d like your own server to win, enter that!

Q: Can I enter a server even if it isn’t mine?

A: Yes! If your post is selected as a winner, we will have to contact the server’s administration to confirm they want the upgrade, but you can win!

Q: How do you determine the winners?

A: We will be reviewing all servers posted and each pick some favorites as winners. The grand prize winner will be the best server we come across.

Q: What if my server is already premium?

A: We will simply add 30 days on to the expiration.

Q: When does this contest end?

A: We will be accepting entries up until September 30, 2011 and announcing winners the following week.

    I really think it deserves to win, we have been trying to get diamond for a long time, and then when we finally get it, someone was one click ahead of us, we even paid for it, so it sucked that we couldn’t get the spot, we have been trying for a long time.

    I think that my server should win because I have been trying to get on the diamond list back in may or so, back when diamond was $9. When a diamond server was finally available, I did not have enough funds in my paypal account to purchase a diamond spot.

    Enough of the sad story. I think that my server deserves to win because my server has responsible admins. We have a growing community and we try our hardest to make all of our players happy.

    I don’t really expect to win the giveaway, but I would greatly appreciate it if I could win.

    Thanks, Zac

    My server, MuttsWorld. I remember way back around January or February looking around for sites to list my server on, and i stumbled onto your site. Ill be honest there are quite a few server lists, but this server list in particular has been fairly good to us over time. OUR LISTING HAS OVER 20k views! Thats pretty good.
    When I started MuttsWorld it was on a piece of junk pc with maybe a gig of ram and barely a case. We moved up and on over time, and without mcserverlist, we wouldnt of made it. Thanks.

    Hi, my name is Mat i would just like to thank you guy’s for this opportunity. I think that this group deserve’s the chance to win Diamond because, they are very friendly people, alway’s help other’s when in need, and are alway’s respectful no matter what. They are up 100% of the time, and have a growing community. I think they deserve this chance so that they can grow even more, and make the Minecraft experience even better for new player’s. If you do decide to look this over here is their page. http://minecraftservers.net/server/2712

    Once again thank you very much for this opportunity. Sincerely Mat.

    That server deserves the spot for what most servers lack… fun. It always seems something new is happening every day along with a balanced economy and many protection mods to keep all of your presious land safe from griefers. It has a large community that is mostly active and everyone there knows how to take a joke. The server is almost always up and we even have our own mumble chat to keep us entertained during the downtime. With plently of options to choose from I think mcoblivion at least needs to be considered for this contest. Thank you!

    I have been waiting Several months to be in this section, I have opened tickets, etc to see when the spot might be available. We are the #1 Server in the world, and it will make sense being in the #1 top list as #1 yet again. We are #1 in the votes (Outside the diamond list) And We are a thriving community with over 20,000 members. I can guarantee you a big part of your overall traffic comes from my users voting here. I feel this will be a win/win situation to have our server listed in there and it would br greatly appreciated and thanked for!

    Thanks for reading this as it must be a pain in the a** to go over hundreds of these (I know what it feels like when I go through Mod applications in my server!)

    It has very active forums. Website is here http://protocraft.org/

    IP:mattthost.net

    Let me start off by saying that this is not my sever but I found on this website about 4 months ago. I personalty believe that this server should be the grand-prize winner because of the server owner’s devotion to the game. The server is also the best server I have ever played on. It has over 65 plugins and is a 24/7 server!! Matt (server owner) runs the server on a recently purchased “super computer” capable of running 25 people on the server with little to no lag. The server also has a wiki, a website, and forums to keep members up to date with all the current events on the server. the only problem that i can see with this server at them moment is the there are not enough active members. I hope you consider this server and thank you for your time. :)

    the website is matthost.net/gaming/

    The reason I vote this server is because I have been with it ever since it was created. In fact, I am the one who convinced Zac (host) to create a Beta server. It is very fun and the players there are very friendly. Also the other admins enforce the rules so everybody has a good time :D

    I am voting for the server above because we were the first to register on your site and are still around today, proving the strength of both our community and our competent staff team.

    We do not bribe players with diamonds or in-game currency to vote so as a result are never on the first page when it comes to votes, the diamond upgrade would be a massive benefit for us all at Orcworm.co.uk.

We try to limit our rules so you can have a great expiriance! We work hard to …spread the word. The rules are carefully devoloped. This server has had alot of work and time into it, but we are not getting much outcome. This is why we need diamond. We hold AWESOME contests that NO OTHER SERVER HAS! (Three people fight in a bedrock cage ageint ten waves of monsters, they need to work together to win, final round they fight a ghast. Prize = five diamonds) but we dont have enough people for these awesome contests! I’m CryptoFreak and this is why I think we should win. arcadiaserver.webs.com

  4. The server that I think deserves this the most is http://minecraftservers.net/server/152.

    It has anything you can imagine. Pixel art, towns, statues, everything. We also have a very friendly and helpful staff, along with great players. Have a problem? A staff member will be on it as fast as we can answer you on the chat. This is a great server, with a 99% uptime and everything you could want in a Minecraft Server. Good luck to all that applied, and I hope we win. :)

    • September 25th, 2011

    Server is MCOblivion: http://minecraftservers.net/server/152

    This server deserves this because it is up almost all the time. There are usually about 10-15 people on at a time unless between about 12-4am EST. A lot of players are helpful, which helps staff being consistent in who they are because of less stress. There are multiple fun activities such as mini-golf, spleef, a pvp arena, pig racing, even drag racing.

This server also has an amazing community, everyone always greets new people and helps them as much as they can. This is one of the oldest Minecraft servers and we plan on being up for a long time. We have plenty of different things to do on our server, including pvp battles, playing golf, pig racing, spleef and much more.

    I am entering the Xaldin Edge into the competition: http://minecraftservers.net/server/763

    I have found, without a doubt, the finest Minecraft server around. I have been an active member for 6 months and in all that time I have had nothing but the best and most attentive service from the entire server from regular players to moderators to administrators and owners. I could go on forever about how much I love this server but, suffice it to say, regardless of the outcome of this competition, Xaldin will always be the number 1 in my book.

    Come check it out and judge for yourself!

    • September 26th, 2011

    Hello, my name is Caleb and I recently just purchaced a minecraft server for 45 players, and right now I only have 9, lol but anyways I think it would be quite exciting to see a small town server like mine, just get huge in one day. ive been working all day on trying to advertise my server and I would really love it if my server could get this.

    My servers website (if I win lol) http://cosmicherobrine.yolasite.com/

  5. The server I am nominating is TrinityCraft: http://minecraftservers.net/server/4769

    TrinityCraft has been around for a few months now, and we try our very hardest to build a fun and active community. As a co-owner, I feel that we should have a spot on the diamond list because of all the hard work we have put into making this server what it is today. We’re a 100-slot server that’s usually only half full, if that. It’s saddening to see such low numbers, and I would love a boost in players, it would make the server feel more alive.

    Thanks,

    Felix.

    My name is Schickles, a moderator on Trinitycraft, and I believe we are the most deserving for diamond status. We have a strong group of dedicated and hardworking Staff. An active community upon which our server has been built. We run purely on donations, and Have shown everyone we are worth it. We have a Dedicated Server, Teamspeak and Forums. We are fun to play with, have free to build cities, private cities, pvp areas, spleef arenas, and more coming.

It was the first server I’ve been on, and the only one I want to be on. I want to see it grow and progress, and diamond status would greatly help this.

    I think TrinityCraft Should wein becase we are a amazingly friendly server and we are almost always online. We have a number of friendly staff. You can find someone to help you pretty much all the time.

    Our user-base is a large and friendly one. If we get Diamondlist we can get an even larger and even friendly Player base.

    Hope TC Wins, go TC, we rock.

    Server List: http://minecraftservers.net/server/2712
    IP: Server.eclipsecraft.net:25565

    I think Eclipsecraft should win the Diamond prize. The server shows great character with friendly admins and players inside it. Mods are not overused. The server is also anti-hackable and is safe from hackers, griefers, spamers, and sabotaging. This are only a few things of why Eclipsecraft should win diamond prize.

  6. Hello!

    My name is Cheezetarts, and I am the owner of ShadowRaze: A fun, and awesome 150 slot server with a thriving community! Achieving new players is one of our all time goals, and wish to keep it that way. ShadowRaze is a dedicated server running 24/7 with a set of staff that work hard day to night. Minecraftservers.net has sent me wonderful and dedicated players to my server, helping my community grow larger everyday.

    Hello,

    I am part owner of Savage Realms. We are a 2 month old server that was in development for 2 months prior. We have put a massive amount of work into the server as can be noted by our members. The server features several handmade dungeons each with their own little catch. A PvP area that is completely PvP including the dungeons, outposts, and bases. It also features a Non PvP area which is fantastic for builders or just those who want to go do a dungeon with friends! We also have a strong focus on clan which is nice for community and PvP through clan warfare.

    If you have any doubts just feel free to hop on and take a look. I am sure from simply seeing our Trade Town upon first time you will be able to grasp the amount of work that has been put into the server.

I have played MC on cobaltium since the beginning of this year and havent even though about leaving since. Ive been on a few other servers but none match up to our awesome community and constant staff support. Our staff is dedicated to what they do and always keep a level head. Thank you for reading this and good luck to you all. Also thank you minecraftservers.net for being so awesome and holding the competition :) .

    Hello I am owner of a fairly young server for minecraft survival players. It’s a lot different from other server’s because of the way it’s ran.

    It’s mostly ran by the user’s they vote on most of the huge changes, and they suggest plugins, ranks and a lot more.

    This is mostly why my server has been so successful.
    The admin, mods and higher ranks are always nice and willing to help the other players.

    With a friendly minecraft group of players and the help of bukkit plugins I truely belive my server is one of the best. Most players that join will become regular players because they beleve this too.

    But then there were slow days, not enough players and nothing to really do.. So I went arround trying to advertise as much as I could untill I found minecraftservers.net which brought back life to my server.

    It wasn’t soon before the member’s started voting and then more players kept joining and joining. Now my server is never without a player thanks to minecraft servers.

    I would like to win this because my server is focused around co-op playing and teaming up. With the help of minecraftservers.net I could get even more players and even more great structures like the players on my server team up and build at the moment.

    This is more of a thankyou than an entery, but fingers crossed my server wins.
