The 1.8 update has created a problem for servers, due to legal battles that have affected the CraftBukkit platform.
We are now able to provide an update on the effect on Ardentcraft – and what is going to happen, soon.
Ardent uses Spigot, which is a variant of CraftBukkit. Spigot is continuing with development – meaning that Ardentcraft will continue to have a stable platform for our servers.
For an update on the current situation – including expected deadlines, information about the new map and spawn – please see this thread.
If you have any questions or suggestions – please post in this thread.
In the meantime – play on Ardentcraft’s new playable Lobby Map – which can be played with the 1.8 minecraft client. Enjoy.
