    As most of you know TMD has P2W features such as ranks , crates , gems and other trash stuff that is unfair to people who don't want to spend $100 on a MINECRAFT server . What sucks is that TMD would be an actual good server if it didn't have these P2W features.

    Not also is this P2W stuff stupid it's against the law because of the crates system this counts as Gambling and most people who do buy these crates are underage.

    Heres what I have researched

    https://definitions.uslegal.com/g/gaming-license/#:~:text=It is unlawful for any,been obtained will be penalized.

    "Gaming license refers to a permit issued by the state to deal, operate, carry on or conduct any gambling game, gaming device, slot machine, race book or sports pool. The license can also be used to operate gaming salon. It is unlawful for any person to engage in any gaming activity without the license. A person who willfully fails to pay license fee will be penalized. A licensee who puts additional games in the slot machines or engage in other gaming activities where license has not been obtained will be penalized."

    https://legalbeagle.com/12317351-can-happen-caught-gambling-underage-casino.html

    "Under some laws, the casino, its employees and the minor's parents or others can be fined or found guilty of a crime when they allow a minor to gamble"

    It is also against Minecraft's EULA because it offers unfair advantages when buying crates or ranks and Mojang has filed lawsuits against servers who haven't followed the EULA license .

    the Minecraft Eula can be found here

    ONE MAJOR RULE
    The one major rule is that you must not distribute anything we've made unless we specifically agree to it. By "distribute anything we've made" what we mean is:

    • give copies of our Game to anyone else;
    • make commercial use of anything we've made;
    • try to make money from anything we've made; or
    • let other people get access to anything we've made in a way that is unfair or unreasonable

    If you actually read the eula then you would know, that removal of stuff and features is 1) unalowed by law 2) unalowed by eula itself since its illegal in at least the EU and US.

    lmao speak english please pay to win isn't a feature smooth brain its a cash grab also you have builder rank in your thing so it seems like your a tmd white knight that thinks p2w is good. smooth brain moment and either way it still breaks the eula and is against western laws so Idk what your saying kid just tell your higher ups to remove this p2w bullcrap because how powerfull you are in game shouldn't revolve around how much money you poor into this game.

    We cant remove a thing players payed for thats a thing further down the eula. You can get a life-time rank by voting aswell as playing and gaining crates trough leveling up, special events, tournaments, giveaways. The only real problems with the ranks are the tracker kit aswell as /sz which provide a direct advantage and safe time by a big amount or give information a regularplayer cannot get. However again, you can get a rank for free by filling in your name and doing a recaptcha on a website for 30 consecutive days which takes less than 5 minutes each day.

    Now, why am i saying that you other stuff myths have access to doesn't provide a significant advantage? Because its not useful/usable in direct pvp. Stuff like /feed becomes irrelevant since most still just use food items,bandages instead of /heal, crates trough monthly bonuses since you get a full set reliably trough voting each month too.

    I look as unbiased as possible on this; if a server cannot make money with only cosmetical items you dont really have another working option, its the same with the currently biggest server and introducing more and more gameplay affecting ranked restricted or pay restricted items. I'd be happy if we could discuss this in a voice call over discord


    Edit: its "put" or "pour" not "poor"

    Just because you can get the rank for free does not make it okay and also theres a ton of kits that provide items such as juggernaut armor and gold weapons which can only be obtained that way or using crates and yes it is against the eula to remove features that people paid for but it already has been broken and removing the p2w features and adding cosmetics would be a relief to the whole player base and you can provide compensation to everyone.Also the ranks are extremely expensive for what they give $110 for a rank are you kidding me thats crazy thats like 1 month rent for a 1bed 1 bath apartment not to mention it doesn't give you much. Its just wrong that you have to exploit children for monetary gain . I have a rank (titan) and I still feel that this is unfair and stupid to the rest of the players who just want to enjoy the server without absolutely getting destroyed by a person who can get a jugg set in a few days.

    Hello there Howelon. Firstly, almost any server you look at will have some form of payment feature, whether it be ranks, kits, crates, or some other donation form. It helps to support and pay for the server, it is not exclusive to us. Secondly a good porton of people have won mythical ranks or other ranks from crates or events, and those who haven't have willingly seen what the ranks give and chose to purchase them anyways. There are many other ways to receive items without the use of money, such as voting, teaming with players, grinding in-game money, making deals, and much more. If you have a true issue with this, you can take it up with an owner if you so please.
