Happy New Year to everyone.
Hope everyone has a great year and lets make it to 7 years old!

Note: we’ll still use this blog for any Mojang news that’s not relevant to Minecraft. There’s not a lot of that about right now but thought it was worth mentioning.

My girlfriend and I started up a trial realm for fun. We weren't really expecting much, just a smooth-running server with some added benefits.
Holy crap were we wrong.
We played for the first time last night and live streamed the whole thing. Here's the highlights if you want to see them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04gfxtjYyg4
Basically, Realms has this HUGE list of minigames. Everything from MineSweeper to TONS of PvP games meant for five or more players. There's also some of the best adventure maps I've ever seen!
We played a map where you ran through a mansion defeating bosses until you got to the main boss (Herobrine) and took him out only to find out there was a secret boss. I freaking loved it!
Listen to me, if you're bored one day and have the chance, get a friend and play some of the adventure maps and minigames on Realms. It's so incredibly worth it.
The best part? There are also a crap load of single player adventure maps, so there's stuff to do even when you don't really have anyone to play with. It's like having your own little pocket of "Do whatever you want today" in MineCraft.

Hey there people. We have obviously been heavily inactive. Quiet, but not dead. Just sort of lurking, in the shadows right over there. Hi!
Things have changed in the world of Minecraft. We still enjoy it, but we're shifting focus a little. Not so much changing, as shedding more light and devoting some attention to the things we've been doing all along anyhow. We used to blog focusing on Minecraft on the whole. As of recently, however, we're going to focus on our community.
We've always had a pretty great group of gamers hanging around, and our core community has kept in contact through our Teamspeak and other social media platforms such as Telegram, and Discord. Some of you have captured some great candid moments while gaming with us and shared them with the group. We want to shift focus to this community interaction.
We plan to continue running a Minecraft server, but we're also going to focus on the games that the community comes together to play, and push the content based around these as well.
We're still going to be community supported, shrinking and growing within the confines of what our player base helps us afford, and we'll get that set up hopefully in the near future. Once that's cemented, we'll lay out what contributing to the community affords and what benefits that might earn. We're still hashing out the details and trying to make it worth it for our users.
We hope you'll stick around through these changes, and we intend to continue providing a decent atmosphere in which to game. Here comes the future, Crafthubians. It looks fun.
