Hey everyone, Bad news comes and i have to inform you all!
So over the past 3 months we have had countless charge backs, Although we have kept up to date and continued to push new content for everyone. With these charge backs we cant afford the server costs! I have put this post off for a while due to me being busy in real life.
So over the last year me and Exies (ReHabAres) have worked countless hours on the server, Building gyms, Keeping players entertained and developed more content for our pixelmon servers, We have had several people who we decided would be great for staff, But as always as soon as they get staff they vanish / become inactive.... We couldn't do this on our own but tried. Then came the charge backs, Now I had won several cases but not all of them, They came with a charge and it started to impact the server funds.
I personally have been paying the last 4 months of the server bill. With that Exies had become busy with collage and I became a dad, Now with 3 kids total to look after and Exies in collage we didn't have a whole lot of time to play / work on the server.
We decided last month that we will not renew the server and it will close down on 31st January 2017!
This was a very hard decision but there is only so much work you can do with very little in return. We never wanted money from the server nor received any, But we wanted players to enjoy the server after all the hard work we had put into it and for it to pay for itself so everyone has a fun server to play on. In return for over a years work we got over $700 in charge backs with charges that made the total greater than $1300 in fees... Also players complaining / blaming us for Pixelmon bugs we have no control over.. We had several custom plugins and one dedicated to helping with pixlemon issues which every update had to be modified to allow certain actions etc but could only do so much. Don't get me wrong a LOT of you really did like the server and appreciated the work, Also helping identify issues / bugs that we worked on. We really did appreciate it and you know who you are! (There was a lot of you that helped :D)
All files will be downloaded and backed up for maybe another day, But for now we have to say goodbye to MystycFalls Pixelmon!
