    As the first ParadiseMC Summer event is fast approaching, I would just like to update you on the progress. We will be having three different events for June 24, 2017. This event will be approximately 2 hours long. The events will start at Noon PST/3 EST/8 UK. Doors open 15 minutes prior to the events.

    We will have two Youtubers streaming the entire event. @SaintNickGamez will be there along with @DukeShepGaming_ (as soon as he can figure out his laggy stream :D) Make sure to say hi to them!

    Here are the events of the day as follows:
    Times are in Eastern.

    3:05 PM: Team DeathMatch
    As we kick off the event, we will be starting with a tournament style Team Deathmatch. We have a maximum capacity of 160 people, so it will be first come first serve basis. Originally, the plan was to do a King of the Hill event, but the plugin has not be figured out in time for this event. Keep an open ear in case we decide to do a KoTH somewhere along the way! The Team DeathMatch will be 4v4v4v4, each person having 4 lives. Last team standing wins.

    4:00 PM: The Digging Minigame
    This fun event is quite a short one, but will be sure to keep you on your toes. We will test your hotbar switching skills as you try to dig down a tube filled with different blocks, trying to get to the bottom as fast as you can.

    4:30 PM: Sandcastle Contest
    What can you do with 5 stacks of sand? We’ll test your creative skills as we have a 30 minute competition. Everyone will be in Survival Mode, so better make sure you use your resources wisely! All staff and media team do not participate will be judging the event.

    So those are the three events in store for you on Saturday June 24! Make sure to come out and join in the fun. Remember, we have other events all throughout the summer hosted by different staff members! Check it out here: https://paradise-mc.net/threads/summer-events.4046/

    lmao doesn't surprise me, another promise that's complete bs. I'm done with these events that never happen. PMC will never be on time for anything.

    The UHC is all set, and can be anytime from now to next week. We'll have a separate thread for you guys to vote when you can come out and join, to get the most amount of people possible. And this time, we've tested everything with more people (de-oped) so it should be all set. We didn't get around to the July 7th event since it was a few days after the reset and faiaz and Nick had to deal with bugs and glitches.

    Let me just say i have absolutely zero comprehension of how PMC plans it events. If you plan in advance more people will show up. you cant just throw around a "within the week" type thing. Nor can you wait till the last week to ask when people will be available. some people actually have lives. (which has been absolutely shoved down my throat by the staff team when i bring up anything they were to incompetent to do) So either have a set date months in advance (and specifically hold true to that setdate) Or make the separate thread for people to vote on when they can come, months in advance.

    I wasn't aware of a reset until weeks after I planned out the events, and until the resets came out I had no scope of how long it would take for it to settle down. It seems like it has now though. I agree that we probably should have notified you guys about the time change sooner, but the resets took a whole chunk of time. :/

    Probably not going to join either of them. I have certain commitments other than PMC such as:
    Swim practice with my buddies
    Watching anime (I've watched Sword Art Online, Attack on Titan s.1&2, Fullmetak Alchemist, Soul Eater, and now I'm watching Love Tyrant)
    Making my command block lab
    Making my private server

    And of course other stuff ; )
