New Anti-Cheat Solution
Hackers have been a big problem on Mineplex for a long time. We have been hesitant to use any public anti-cheat plugins, because we felt that they ruined the fun for non-cheating players with so many false-positives & rubber-banding. We tried developing an inhouse solution (MAC) for a while, but we didn't have enough time to give it the love and care it needed.
We have been working to find a good solution for a while now, so we got in touch with the lead developer of NoCheatPlus. We spoke about getting a custom solution developed for Mineplex. After a lot of tweaking and testing, we now have a custom NCP solution that will drastically cut back on the number of cheaters, as well as remove many of the false-positives that would have ruined the fun for non-cheating players!
We are very excited to be releasing this! Please post your feedback on the forums so we can continue to make this solution better!
Treasure Chest Update
We have a big overhaul of Treasure Chests to release! First up, we no longer require keys to open chests! Once you have a Chest, you can open it for free! There are now four designated chest opening locations in the Lobbies where you can open your chests. When you open a chest, you will be supplied with 8 chests, but choose wisely as you only get to pick four of them! Finally, there are now three different types of chests; Old Chests, Ancient Chests and Mythical Chests.
Old Chests have the lowest chances to find better loot. Ancient Chests have much higher chances to find better loot. Mythical Chests give the best chances at the best loot and also offer a chance to find a new tier of Mythical loot. Mythical loot contains Rank Upgrades, which will upgrade your rank! Non-ranked players will get Ultra, Ultra will get Hero and Hero will get Legend! We have more Mythical loot items in development right now.
All Chests can be found at the end of games, purchased with Coins, or purchased in the Shop
All of your old Treasure Chests will be exchanged into 50 Gems and 1 Old Chest.
If you had over 20 Treasure Chests, you will also receive 1 Ancient Chest.
If you had over 50 Treasure Chests, you will also receive 1 Mythical Chest.
Treasure Keys will be exchanged into 1 Ancient Chest each.
This will be done soon...

We've also have a couple of new maps to release! We've got a new SG map in the works, as well as a Bridges map that will be coming out some time soon!
