Hello,

The server now supports client versions 1.7 - 1.9. This means, you'll be able to connect to the server with either of these versions. However, the server(s) are NOT officially on 1.9 therefore the newest blocks are not yet supported. We do have future plans to officially update some servers, but others will remain on older versions as 1.9 impacts gameplay immensely. We do expect some bugs, but nothing major as it has been stressfully tested by our developers and their testers. 

At this time, the ONLY servers that you'll be able to connect with 1.7, 1.8 and 1.9 are "Skywars and Creative"  As these servers are the easiest to update without affecting gameplay or creating game breaking changes. Over the next few days, we'll be updating some more servers to support the versions, but we mainly want to keep some as how they are until we reset the servers. Expect cool features to be implemented as this has opened a lot more options available to us. 

If have any questions, concerns or suggestions. Please feel free to comment down below and we'll try our best to answer it at our earliest convenience. 

Spekt Any news on your 1.9 server?
Charrrrr Will there be some 1.8 based skywars maps then?
DukeBubblesaur Oh.. well i guess it was about time. Since the server is updating is it possible to have things like andesite, diorite, ...
