I hope you're all doing just wonderful this December 23rd!
With Christmas just around the corner, it seems we've had someone drop off a very, very big gift at the Arena! I wonder what's inside... What are your guys' guesses! I'd love to hear them! Drop them down below and keep your guesses clean please! :)
So, the admins got together tonight to talk about how to deliver the best service to you, the Trainers, out of Pikacity. We wanted to improve staff morale, as well as highlight the staff who are doing exceptionally well at their job!
So, as such, we are putting a new system into place for Trainers to share their experiences with staff. In the shop, we have a new area in which you can write to us about how a staff member has positively affected you. There will be book and quills available to you, so you can write down what the staff member did for you, and how much you appreciate it!
Those staff deemed the best monthly by YOU, the trainers, will recieve a gift! It can be a nice "Thank you!" to those staff who've made your experience here on PikaCity better. In turn, we hope the staff will strive towards this goal of providing the best possible server they can, and make your time here that much better.
We hope that you make use of this new feature, and that you continue having fun on the best pixelmon server ever, PikaCity!
Hello members of PikaCity! This is your admin Magiseth!
Yes, Admin. I'm happy to announce that I am back to the position of Admin, and what a journey PikaCity has had since I was first Admin way back in December of 2013!
The first thing to talk about here is that PikaCity is turning 2 years old this Friday! Wow! Its hard to believe after all the ups and downs that we are crossing this milestone, and I couldn't be more thrilled to be here with you guys for this occasion. It is you, the players, that have brought us this far, and we hope to continue far into the future, providing a great pokemon experience to everyone that comes into the server. This community is wonderful, and we truly have you to thank for keeping this server a great place to play! Give yourself a pat on the back folks!
Next up, we are nearing completion of returning to gyms to our survival server. We know that it's been taking time, and we apologize for that. Believe me that the staff has wanted nothing more than to bring the gyms back to you guys, and we've been wanting them up quickly more than anyone. With that said, we can finally say with certainty that the gyms will be up and running THIS FRIDAY! Get your team ready for the weekend, because the gym leaders will be ready, and they will not be an easy challenge! PikaCity has always prided itself on having a challenging gym system, much more difficult than the games, to provide a real challenge to players. The PikaCity gyms are no joke, and even beating the first gym is something worth celebrating! Hope you're ready for them!
To answer the question before it is asked, there are no immediate plans for an Elite Four team. It will require some additional plans for staffing and teams, and NO, we are not taking applications for Elite Four, so please don't make any!
Finally, in honor of our 2 year anniversary, we are planning a tournament for it! Details (EDIT: Are in the forums now)! The admin team is very excited to give away some awesome prizes to our tournament winners, so we hope all of you participate. You'll be able to register for the tourney in the forums once the thread is made, and (EDIT: Is being held Sunday, November 29th).
That's all for now! Thank you all for reading, and please continue to support the best pixelmon server ever, PikaCity!
It’s time to talk business. As of today, PikaCity seems to hover around 15 people daily (mostly on survival). This is by no means a large player count and signifies that our servers are, in fact, declining. The current financial state of the servers does not allow two servers to be up, when one of them is barely played on. Adventure will probably shut down within 3 days.
Now, let’s not get sad! This server has had one of the most incredible journeys for the past 2 years. Starting as a small 5-person server in 2013, we reached max population during April of 2014, where we had over 130 players on daily. The server has provided me with some amazing memories and I’m sure you all feel the same.
I will admit, I want your guys’ advice on how to proceed because I am feeling a bit lost. Do you think we should shut down adventure and turn survival into something that is catered towards a smaller player base? Or do you think we should do the opposite? Just remember, your suggestion has to include cutting down the costs of a server, because we just cannot afford it anymore with so few players and donations. Please reply to this post with your opinion.
Thank you all and god bless PikaCity
P.S. Servers are down at the moment due to an external issue.
