"FreeWorld wasn't always so busy.. in fact, I remember back when, if you got on in the middle of the day, on a Saturday, more often than not, you'd either be alone, or only on with two or three other players. The server was quiet, almost always.. it was peaceful. Almost therapeutic. I used to love to hop on the server, knowing I had it all for myself. I could build to my heart's content, and not have to worry about watching the chat to see my name being called. You could roam the PvP bridge freely, and not be attacked, simply because there was nobody else around. Towny didn't exist, we weren't using Enjin for our site.. we didn't have a global chat, or a very expansive spawn. We didn't have a bunch of minigames, and building in FreeBuild or Creative, or raiding, was almost the only way to go. If you needed staff help, you asked Marc directly, and if you didn't know the answer to a question, you would find it out for yourself. FreeWorld.. has changed a lot, since those days. Most certainly for the better."
"We've come pretty far since those days, though. Of course, we couldn't have done any of it without Marc. In fact, if we didn't have Marc, there wouldn't be a FreeWorld.. quite obviously. I feel pretty honored to say that I've worked alongside Marc for almost an entire year, working and pushing to get FreeWorld to be one of the best server experiences that a player could ask for. Endless minigames, vast worlds, dozens upon dozens of plugins, caring staff who would help you no matter what. We love this server.. we wouldn't trade it for anything."
"Freeworld. Where we come to be free. Come to get away from our problems. Come to enjoy building, and chilling with our friends. War and anger may happen sometimes, but we get through it and come together as one. I have made so many awesome friends and have met so many new people all over the world. If it wasn't for Freeworld, I wouldn't have had all of these awesome experiences. Thanks to everyone for being awesome, and especially thanks to Marc for putting up with all of us, and running an amazing server."
Finally one year, eh? To me, it feels like so much more... I have been through a lot of thing on FreeWorld, and I mean A LOT of things… From the very first day I joined, until today, has been an incredible, spectacular adventure. I remember back in the early days, when FreeWorld even had another IP address. A much, much smaller place than it is today. FreeWorld has grown, and it is officially been public for one year. FreeWorld has changed every one of us. And I’m incredibly glad for that. We have an insane amount of strong players here. Together, we have made FreeWorld what it is today. And we’ll keep pushing FreeWorld into the future. Together, we are FreeWorld, and no one can ever change that. Happy birthday FreeWorld!
Our Legacy.. Our Members.
"The server is unique. I found it through boredom, but through that.. I've also found happiness, new friends, and a greater appreciation for the little things. Like pixels."
- woogi2 (aka Flubbermau5)
"FreeWorld has been a epic place to hang out. I've made many friends, and enemies.. been staff, seen some pretty crazy things. I hope FreeWorld has many more years to come."
- [Elite] TheMasterOfDerps (aka sonic7058)
"When I first got on FreeWorld, I was just starting out. But now.. I know how to play. I've made a ton of friends on FreeWorld, (like Sonic.) And Scoota is pretty cool."
- [Executive] Dirgie (aka Dreadlord552)
"Be here for another year. For sure, this is the best server and community I've ever seen."

"Being staff on this server means everything to me. Never in my two years of Minecrafting have I found a server where, I can honestly see myself staying. Where I can think, literally, months into the future, and I can still see myself helping Marc expand this server. I can still see myself training new staff, tossing out suggestions, dealing with the mad advertising rush and the bugs and the little problems we run across. Hosting parkour contests and PvP contests for the members, drop parties, and being there for when our players just need someone to talk to. I'm like.. the mom of FreeWorld, as Marc calls me. I'm very protective of everyone. If someone is in distress, I do what I can to help them. I don't like seeing any of our members upset, or not enjoying themselves. Minecraft is a beautiful game, and often, people forget that. They forget what's past the pixels, the words, the fighting, the name-calling.. they forget that, at the end of the day, we're here to have fun. That's what FreeWorld is all about. We're here to have fun, and enjoy ourselves. To back away from that horrible day you've had in the outside world, take a few minutes to de-stress, and enter the world of blocks, to calm your mind.. and relax with your friends. That's what we aim to keep going. And we plan to do that, for as long as we possibly can. We want this server to be successful. And that's what we're accomplishing. This year anniversary, not only marks the start of something new and amazing.. but the start of a fresh new year for FreeWorld. Many changes are going to take place, and it's going to ultimately, make FreeWorld a better place, a better experience."
"With this year, we take the good, and the bad. The newcomers, and the banned players.. the fights, and the parties.. the contests and the wars.. the lag-free environment, and the downtimes. All of that has made this community stronger, and stronger, and finally, we're ready. We're ready to bring you something that you can't ever forget."
"I think I can speak for all of FreeWorld when I say, Marc is honestly one of the most caring, hardworking, enthusiastic, and positive server owners I have ever met in Minecraft. He's the life and the soul of the server, he keeps FreeWorld running and moving forward. He looks past the rough points, and fixes things without hesitation. Without him, we wouldn't have any of this. And I'm proud to say that I'm staff on this server. He's stuck with us through everything you can possibly imagine. Because of that.. FreeWorld loves him. Every time they know he's bound to be on sometime during the day, it's, "When is Marc coming on? I want to say hi! I want to meet him. I want to tell him how amazing this server is. I want to offer a suggestion." And that's what I absolutely love about this server. They love their owner, and as soon as his name pops up on the list, the chat is instantly flooded with hellos and praise about the server. And he listens. He listens to every single one of his members, and he cares. He truly cares."
"That's why I love FreeWorld. And I wouldn't have it any other way."
.........No longer! Thank you all who have fought hard and valiantly while the attacks were happening! You are true heroes!
Gather around Free Worlders! I have a tale to tell. Free World was attacked. But do not worry, we ended up victorious!
To those who missed it, let me speak of the Hacker Wars that happened not too long ago....
While Marc was away at distant lands, the innocent citizens of Free World were visited by an evil force. An evil, ruthless man named Akrill who sought nothing but to inflict war and terror upon the World he found. The Free World.
Hundreds took arms to defend the Spawn. They knew they were going against a God, for Akrill mastered the Dark Arts. Akrill was able to grant himself OP.
...And yet there they stood. With sword and axe in hand (or hand in hand for those unarmed fighters). Hoping. Praying. Praying that their endless hours training their McMMO stats at Mob Grinders will prove helpful in this coming war.
And then Akrill attacked. For hours he waged war against Free World. Our most loyal Players stood ground and fought with all their might! Marc's Peace Keepers and Builders came to aid. The Staff and Players together fought back.
...and yet, the PVP Bridge eventually fell into ruins. It took face of the beat down, war-burdened Factions World. Many lost lives that day, only to be respawned in the middle of the battlefield. The fight continued for hours.
As the Spawn's mighty protective walls crumbled, with the Market covered in Lava and the bridge decimated into ruins... Player started losing hope. Is Free World gone forever? Is this The End? Both men and women began to weep. The thought of peaceful times being no more brought sadness. Then it happened.
Thunder began cracking in the air as if the Heavens were opening. And there in the sky upon a cloud stood Marc. He returns! War cries of happiness fill the air. He is not angry nor furious. He assures his Players who still remained that all will be well. He strikes down the evil Akrill with his Enchanted Sword, forged of Diamond. Akrill was no match of Marc.
The players rejoice! But what of the grief? What of the major damage Akrill had already inflicted? Marc snaps his fingers. And instantly Free World is restored.
The sun begins to come out, touching the lands of Free World. The night was long. It is dawn. The photo above shows weary players. Exhausted from battle.
These are the tales of the Hacker Wars. Where Akrill came with evil intent to destroy Free World. Where he failed and was bested by Marc.
Incoming News! Everyone keep your pixels together.
"What is this? We're finally doing a news post? It's been like 4 months!"
Yes, yes, I know. It's been 4 months since you guys have had a proper news post, and I don't mean the random server updates that get posted on the Announcements page. And.. what's this? RemixedWubsis posting the news post? This is a disaster! What ever shall we do? Well.. you could start by reading along. I've got a lot of stuff to cover, and not much time. Chop chop, let's go.
"What say you, diamond PVPers of FreeWorld?"
The Top Voter of the Month!
"Multiplied by four, since we're a little off, here."
For those of you who don't vote, this is just a small snippet of what you could be receiving if you did vote. Those four diamonds and $100 may add up over time, but you know what also adds up over time? Donator ranks. You know what you receive everytime you are the Top Voter of the Month? A donator rank. Seriously, ask Nyanamease. First person in FreeWorld history to vote his way all the way up to the Elite donator rank. Voting not only helps you, it helps us too. So, without further ado, I give you the past four Top Voters..
For assisting in pushing FreeWorld to the very tops of those server lists, each Top Voter will receive a free donator rank. These donator ranks add onto the existing ranks, (if they have one,) and could possibly be the difference between that Pigman mobdisguise, and the Creeper mobdisguise. Don't forget to vote!
"All in favor of creeper explosions, raise your captchas!"
September's Build Contest: Project "Easter Egg"
"Easter Eggs in September? This isn't what you think.. I swear.."
With our on-and-off Build Contests becoming more and more random, we would like to offer you the challenge of a new type of Build Contest. But these Easter Eggs aren't what you're thinking of. If you're thinking rainbowy-colorful, adorable little decorated eggs for Easter.. erase that from your mind. These kinds of Easter Eggs are items, builds, or random things that are hidden in places that aren't overly obvious. They make for a great exploration, and when you find them, you'll likely always giggle a bit to yourself. If not, maybe a smile. Then proudly announce that you've found one of World City's Easter Eggs.
With this contest, we challenge you to build an Easter Egg, unlike any other. Something we can hide deep within World City, so that future members may stand in awe of them for years to come. The sky is the limit! (Literally.)
For more information on September's Build Contest, click here.
"Hidden deep within the city.. stands an area of vast destruction.."
Factions Spawn gets a revamp!
"Lack of TNT is preferred here. A map is also preferred."
This revamp is so massive, you'll need a map to navigate it. With Factions world becoming less and less populated, we've proposed an idea to get it going again. A brand new spawn is in the works, as is a new market, designed to give you ease of access, as you buy TNT cannon materials, base materials, and other raiding supplies, as well as portals, leading to places spanning the untouched biomes of the Factions world. Not only will the new spawn be completely over water, it will also be in a place far away from the current location..
"Listen close, the sounds of dying players and TNT rages on.."
World City is nearing completion!
"It's been almost a year! This better be worth it.."
We're so confident it's worth it, we've even got a date set for it's finish line. World City originally started in a very flat area of the spawn world, as a beacon on a stonebrick tower, and a few buildings plopped down in the surrounding area. Around December of 2012, Marc and I finally began the project. World City was moved, and it picked up strength, speed, a few amazing and dedicated builders, and a team of staff that gives so much support, we can't possibly beat it. To mark this day, we bring you a few more sneak peeks of World City, and all it's glorious artwork. The fine details speak loud and clear.
"World City University is closed for the evening. Except to mobs."
"Take a step, jump, take a step, fall to your death."

"So much news.. I feel like a zombie.."
"I swear, I'm done talking now!"
As some of you may have noticed, this isn't the usual Marc post.. we've been slacking lately on keeping the news posts up-to-date, with Marc being so busy and whatnot, that I have taken over the task.. this time around.. as being the official news deliverer person thing. So, as.. that title.. I would like to thank you all for reading this incredibly long post. Thanks for being a FreeWorlder, keep voting, keep an eye out for future updates, and stay pixely.

As some of you may have noticed earlier this week, we were down for about 20 hours. This was because our host experienced a medium-sized DDoS attack. If you don't know what a DDoS is, it's basically an attack on a server that can bring it down. Our host responded to this attack by placing a protection that denies all connections. This is why our server was down. After I sent them so frustrated emails, they eventually lifted the protection which allowed me to bring us back online.
Just to be clear, we were not the target.
Trading with Other Players
You asked and I listened! Players are always nervous about possibly being scammed when trading with an anonymous player. Fear no more! You can now /trade items and money with other players! Learn more about our /trade system in our Tutorial!
Many of you are eager to know when World City will be finished. I assure you we are actively working on World City.

With that said, I would like to announce the Factions Spawn Project!
We will be building a new Factions Spawn! Complete with a cheaper Market, player-Shops, etc! That's right, Factions will have its OWN complete spawn! Who will be building this spawn? You guys! The community! I will be appointing a Project Leader to organize this. So head on over to your Creative Plots and start Building your ideas!
When is the next Free World Build Contest?! I am currently working on a plugin that will help automate our Build Contests. Once I get this up-and-running, we will resume holding our frequent Build Contests!

As some of you may already know, I have been considering installing in Survival Games for you to enjoy! However, I need your feedback!
If you do not know what McMMO is, it is a plugin we have here in Free World that brings an RPG feel to play experience. Depending on how
much a certain tool is used or a certain action is performed, players
will gain experience that will eventually add bonuses such as double
drops, rare drops, or ability enhancement.
