Hey guys, You all probably noticed how our Skyblock has sorta exploded recently, and we reach almost 200 players on weekends. While this is awesome, it's also caused some lag problems at peak times, a large part of which are caused by a ton of AFK mining. I'm very against setting a player cap or kicking AFK players, because it discourages you guys from playing and AFK mining (which is a big part of our Skyblock). So, the best option to mitigate lag right now is to slow down AFK mining more when the server is lagging. Ever since the new mining system we added 2 resets ago, AFK mining has always been half the speed of normal mining for this reason, but we're going to have to change this. We're going to make it fair, though -- during off-peak hours, when there's not many people online (like at night), AFK mining will be about the same speed as regular mining. Since most of the time we're in off-peak hours, this will even out. I've done the math myself, and if you were to keep an AFK mining account online for a whole day, you'd actually get slightly more minerals on the new system than you would have on the old system. The reason I'm making an announcement about it is to make everyone aware, in case you guys check your AFK mining account during the day at peak time and notice that the blocks take longer than normal to replace, you know what's going on. tl;dr We're changing how AFK mining works a bit to prevent lag during peak time, but overall you should be getting the same outputs as before (if not, more). That's all! If you have any more questions, feel free to ask below.
