    Hey! Welcome aboard! Nice to see people still opting to register even with it being optional, and definitely nice to see people coming to check out the Beta 1.7.3 server! I saw you made a couple posts saying that the server was down - I'm looking into it now and it should be back up within a few minutes. Either way, enjoy your stay at Chaotic United! And if you have Discord, feel free to join our Discord server at https://discord.me/chaoticunited

    Beta 1.7.3 Server FAQ

    Based on some recent comments from various people, I have opted to make a FAQ outlining the purpose of the Beta 1.7.3 server as well as answer some questions. "No sprint? No tab menu? No command autocompletion? No creative mode? This is TRASH!" I can't tell you what you are and aren't allowed to like, but when I see criticism like this I cannot help but to step in and clear the air. This version of the game predates the inclusion of many modern Minecraft features. Additionally, the point of the server isn't to bring in huge swathes of players and make a major success of a server. This server is designed for people who get nostalgic feels every now and again, or people who just prefer that more traditional style of gameplay. And yes, there are people like this besides myself. As mentioned in our announcement, this server was created as more permanent version of all those servers that popped up for a few months at a time (if that) and then closed for good. This one is setup with the same architecture as our main server, and is running on true server hardware - and thus is able to run 24/7. You can't approach this server with a mindset of "wow so many features are missing". You have to view it with a mindset of a sort of appreciation of its simplicity. This will be much easier if you were actually around back in those days, but even so, this can also be a chance to experience it for the first time, too. It's all about state of mind. If you view it as a seperate entity and play it for what it is, the server can be so much fun despite being so simple. If you view it as a featureless version of modern Minecraft, you're going to just see it as a more boring version of the game. Why create this thing to begin with? As mentioned before, the main reason this was created is to serve that niche of players who want to relive the nostalgia of Beta 1.7.3. Some people just want to relive some brief nostalgia. Others are militant about Beta 1.7.3 being the last good version of the game. Whatever your beliefs or opinions on the matter, this server is here for you. What's with these "Advanced" and "VIP" ranks? In addition to being a server for those seeking old Minecraft nostalgia, this server also (sort of) caters to old CU nostalgia, too. These ranks existed in 2011 and were the only ranks that were available. In addition to having some nostalgia with CU itself as well, there simply aren't the plugins or features to justify the same set of ranks we have currently. We currently have 8 donator ranks on the main server, there's no way that we'd be able to pull of 8 ranks on this server effectively. But I don't like survival Minecraft! It's boring! Then don't play the Beta 1.7.3 server, easy. Not even in a cocky manner, this server legitimately isn't made for everyone. If you don't enjoy it, our main server (especially post-relaunch) should satiate your tastes if you have no desire for basic MC.

    Anyone trying to play with me?

    will look into it right now

    This is it...

    Sorry to see you go, man. I hate to see you leave outright as I've had some good times with you as well. But I suppose as history has shown, nobody sticks around forever sadly. If you ever decide to return, you can be sure I'll still be around here in some capacity, doing something to help this community move forward. In either case, I'm glad you're starting to get your stuff sorted out, and I'm honored to have been a part of helping you through the trouble and issues you had. It's this kind of stuff that makes running CU worth it - even if it's not as popular as it once was, me being here and keeping CU going is still making a lasting impact on the lives of people. I wish you good luck in your endeavors, and I hope I'll see you again one of these days.

    I think he gets it man. Thanks, and as I said before, you're welcome to keep using forums and MC if you like.

    Banned

    You've had numerous incidents on our Discord server, and we've heard this same tale before. I'm sorry to say that this appeal will be getting a rejection for today, and I doubt many others will have any qualms about that verdict. Time and time again, you've blasted out our eardrums, played music, and generally gotten on people's nerves. People got tired of it and so action was taken. You are more than free to continue playing on our MC servers providing you follow the rules, and you're welcome to continue interacting with the community here via the forums. Your best bet is to give it a while when it comes to appealing from Discord. Utilize our other services in the meantime if you like. Also please, use the provided format for creating an appeal the next time. Despite Jayden's statement of "Don't make another appeal", I am entirely open and aware that, given time, people can grow out of their ways. There was a time where both I and Alycat were banned and had no place within Chaotic United, and we eventually became the ones to run the show. Other staff are free to comment if they desire, but regardless of what they say the verdict is going to be a rejection, for now. Give it time. As I said before, it's not the end of the world. You still have access to the rest of CU's services - MC, forums, and so on and you're welcome to play and use them as you wish.

    no the theme was using was broken and not showing posts and whatnot properly, which reminds me i should probably fix that
  22. Hey, folks. You may have noticed that a little while ago as of this topic that we made an announcement on our Discord and shut all the servers down. As of now, the server is all ready to go again, so if that's all you care about you're free to get back to playing. However, what happened was nothing short of insane and we think it's important that we share what exactly happened. On February 25th, a group of hackers/griefers came in and somehow managed to gain OP access. Along with this, they managed to get around FastLogin's premium account protection and use my account during the whole event. Semi-Vanilla and Hub were most severely impacted, with the main server seemingly untouched (more on that in a bit). Hub was almost entirely wiped from existence, as you can see in the spoiler below. Semi-Vanilla got flat-out nuked. You know, the typical lava and explosions and whatnot. Thankfully, we had just implemented a backup system a couple months ago. A backup system that is presently flawed and is supposed to make daily backups of the server. I wasn't informed that anything shady had happened until today, but luckily the backup system was just disabled a couple days before this all happened, and we were saved. The backups were taken just a couple days before the whole event, so very little loss of progress should be noticed. We will not be sharing the identities or any usernames of those who griefed, as the publicity and attention is exactly what they want. The roots of these players seem to date back to Christmas, where someone logged into Semi-Vanilla and had their IP showing as 127.0.0.1, which if you know anything about networking and how IP's work, would know that having that IP would be impossible. At the time, we wrote it off as no malicious actions took place at that time. The user tried to register with a couple of admin accounts, including wolfbitez and AlexZH. Espon (wolfbitez) just changed his username so this was no longer the real account, and Alex was never admin. Most likely he saw him in spawn and assumed he had administration powers. The same pattern was found from the griefers, except when they joined main. Two of the accounts let their guard down or forgot to spoof their IP - revealing their actual IP's. These IP's have been banned from the server, as well as all of the accounts and usernames we were able to find that had connections to this group, mostly coming from their YouTube channel. As for the main server, we found that there were no traces of anything left on it. No unknown OPs, nobody with the all permissions that shouldn't have it. We did notice a bug with Multiverse but it seemed to be unrelated. It has been fixed, but we ultimately don't know for sure that everything is perfect. We ask that you guys keep an eye out for anything strange, and if you find it, report it to us immediately. For the time being, however, we will NOT be allowing cracked users onto the server. We don't know for sure if this was part of how they broke in, but as a precaution we will be premium-only for the time being. We will likely be keeping it that way until we update to 1.14, especially since the vast majority of our playerbase is premium anyways. Normally, such an event would be a serious thing that'd cripple us, but thanks to the magic of backup it was a quick fix, and we're back up after a few hours as if nothing had happened. Once again, if you find anything suspicious, let us know immediately! And for the record, I only speak English. If I'm ever on and I'm not speaking English, be wary.
