Demedrit joins (May 21, 2013)

One of the first Minecraft communities I stuck with. Before this I was server hopping with friends, until I was introduced to this server one day. I stayed longer than the people that introduced the server to me, ironically. Building lasting friendships through Minecraft was honestly a surprise to me and really showed me the impact online gaming communities can have on one's life. For a very, very long time I felt very committed to the server and spent many hours online to express that. I can't believe how interaction with so many different people has improved my people skills, my typing WPM, and my general cultural knowledge.

I was looking for active servers to join when I first started playing minecraft multiplayer. I saw mc-wars.org on a server website and it advertised a unique gamemode. This gamemode was unlike anything else and the players made it even better. I was young when I started and was annoying, but the great people of mc-wars were kind through it all. The days of mcwars are over and its 5 year anniversary was so close (RIP mcwars 3/23/18). May 22, 2018 would mark my 5 year anniversary on mcwars. I joined when the server was only a little over a month old. There are too many players to thank, so I thank the entire community for the great times we had.

Mcwars will always be the best server I have ever had the privilege to play on. It is the only server that kept me in Minecraft all these years. The community of Mcwars can't be seen anywhere else and I always felt at home. I will never forget some of the great times I had with some of the best people I will ever meet.

airbiscuits joins (August 31, 2013)

I joined in September 2013, the server was still quite young. Honestly I have no idea how I even found this server, it was through advertising or something. But I fell in love with its unique game mode and friendly community. I was active until about the two year anniversary, as I was interested in other things at the time. I've grown, and I've seen others grow. I will always have mc-wars in my heart. However I am not eulogizing the old mc-wars, only reflecting on the joy I felt through its life span. Hylemorphica is the revival of the community, and hopefully if I don't feel those same feelings again as the server grows once again, others will. I will always miss the old mc-wars, but welcome now Hylemorphica.

Valaryyn joins (September 12, 2013)

Mc-Wars was, and continues to be, the best Minecraft server that I have ever had the benefit of playing. So many great people and so many awesome times. I wish it were still in its heyday, because I would still be playing to this day if it had the community and the infrastructure that it had in its first two years of operation. Sadly, it has fallen on hard times of late. I wish things were different, but I do still have a special place in my heart for this once-great server and the people who populated it.

ringgot joins (September 15, 2013)

This server became somewhat of a virtual home for me; a place where I could escape from the real world and engage with friends online. I joined due to the unique and alluring game mode, but I ultimately stayed for the community aspect. As time went on, I started to become more and more involved, and it was a pleasure being able to contribute to such a great place. Messing around with friends, building maps, and playing those intense, competitive matches made for some fantastic memories, and I'm very happy to have been a part of it all :D

Mc-wars.org was a fun place to be in, with a community that deserves a lot of respect for their hard work on the server. I will miss the old maps that I've played when i first joined the server., my old friends that left the server and the good people that helped me out in the server.

Mc-Wars has been a life changer for me. It was one of the first server's I played on every since I have started playing Minecraft. Even though I have moved on from Minecraft, the community of Mc-Wars will always be remembered by me as a place where I met lots of different people and friends.

RadBuilder joins (February 16, 2014)

I'll always remember Mc-Wars and those who played on it. Why? Because of the community. While everyone had their moments, we were all able to get to know each other. This made the gaming experience much more enjoyable compared to other servers, where it's pretty much impossible to get to know anyone as you're constantly seeing new players. While it's sad that Mc-Wars had to die, it's important for us to look forward: we can continue the community aspect by chatting and playing other games together. Thanks to jj and everyone else for making Mc-Wars great, and I look forward to playing games and chatting with everyone on Hylemorphica.

Staff House (October 28, 2014)

The staff house was always off limits. Before they put up a "force field" around it, killing anyone who got too close, people tried and sometimes were able to get in. I was carried and thrown to it in this screenshot by another staff member. jj happened to be inside, noticed me, and told me to get out.

ThunderGodHD joins (November 15, 2014)

Before I began my journey of becoming the world's greatest dabber Dab on the Haters, before I fell in love with Jake Paul and spent all my money on his merch, before I got a job on the youtube show "Behind the meme", and before I achieved my greatest feat of finding Despacito 11 - I was your ordinary youngin that played minecraft . Mc-wars was a good server on roblox that I saw as a secondary home as I escaped from the deep dark roots of 4chan. At first, I was a bad boy who often got banned and (redacted) by (redacted) Hylemorphic as a result of my naughty behavior, but then I decided to change myself for the better. I decided to stop letting the haters be jealous of how good I was, and began to Dab on the Haters on all my haters. From then on, I improved my dabbing skills until finally I became a the god at dabbing Dab on the Haters, hence my current title of DabMaster(redacted). After a few years as I got older, I began to stray from the mc-wars community, but I soon learned that the past could never escape me. I could not forget a past with so much success! I could not simply stop dabbing Dab on the Haters! When I finally realized this, I rejoined the mc-wars community via discord and continued to Dab on the Haters on the haters once again, which continued to improve my dabbing skills further until finally I was recognized by the great president of the United States - Donald J Trump who put me in charge of political affairs with North Korea. I'm afraid I'll have to end the story of my legacy here since I've reached the character limit Dab on the Haters Dab on the Haters.

echo742 joins (January 23, 2015)

As soon as I joined in 2015, Mc-Wars instantly became a second home to me. I really loved classic, but it was definitely the community that kept me wanting to come back every day. I made so many amazing friends on this server, many of whom I’m still close with now, and I just remember chatting and messing around for hours and hours in the lobby. There is so much I will remember on Mc-Wars; from the countless weddings to the crazy faction drama and the hours we spent trying to finish the barrier block and piston parkour. I won't ever forget the innumerable all nighters I spent trying to win VIP in the 2015 comp (or to just hang out with my friends in different timezones), the hilarious chats I've had with friends on Skype and Discord, and constantly finding new methods, tactics and tunnels as a /builder. Mc-Wars allowed me to discover that online friends can be just as valuable and special as my irl friends, and I am immensely grateful for that. Consequently, it has been extremely sad for me to see Mc-Wars slowly dying, as it was a huge part of my life for many years, however I am optimistic and excited to see where this new gaming community is headed!

chelle0425 joins (March 24, 2015)

I was 11 when I came across mc-wars.org on server websites. It wasn't particularly special, but I had a strong feeling that told me I must have a go (and I liked the blue logo). The instant I joined, I knew I belonged here. The game mode was already fascinating, but the community brought it to another level. I made countless friends, from all around the world, something a social outcast like me would have never imagined. Every day I would log on, spend hours playing classic, chatting with players, hanging around the lobby. When it was past my bedtime, I would sneak on my phone and continue chatting, it completely changed my lifestyle and sleep schedule. My Asia timezone leads to some of my best memories being sneaking on at 5am joining the factions reset, or calling a certain player at 3am during a summer camp since I couldn’t do so at home, or that one time I had a 14hour conversation with a friend. Before I knew it, I had a community that would support me, somewhere that a shy girl like me gradually built my confidence, my sense of self-worth. This place is where I could talk about my life struggles and receive support, this is what kept me going when life got rough. March 28, 2018, marked my third year on this server, it was a long journey and won’t have been possible without everyone. It was really sad to see the server dying, but as a gaming community, we will continue to inspire others like us, showing them the joy and memories we all share from being part of this place.

cocoman51287 joins (April 10, 2015)
I can't really express the feeling of community and excitement with the MC-Wars cast. It was so easy to integrate and become known on the server (the Minecraft server at least). The people, their stories, some of the interactions on the server i something you can't get on a major server like Mineplex or Hypixel. I've met many players with different agendas. What I find very interesting about this server is that people really dont play for the games, if it is, it's just to talk and play around...y'know? Minecraft is a ever changing game and it seems like the server has met it's replayability value--yet I don't think the idea of it will ever fade. I've always wanted to help out the server as best as I can--even if I can't, I think I still help out through just being there. Here's a couple of images of the arcane past.

Invisible Parkour (September 28, 2015)

Siah built this awesome barrier block parkour and I remember a bunch of us (Spina_, FableCloud, maylis1234, Stan8 and myself) spent hours working out the entire path to the amazing hidden area at the end. It was so much fun and so many people loved completing it (and struggling with the piston door in the melon room).

ItzStoneHD joins (November 07, 2015)

One of the reasons I stuck around to this server specifically, is because of how easy it is to keep and maintain friends. Considering that an admin (and lower ranking staff) actually take time to personally know every player blows my mind. Everywhere else you're just thrown in the abyss of noobation. I literally love everyone on here and I know it sounds cliché, but its all thanks to the community that I'm still here.

JCREW911 joins (January 18, 2016)
From the very first moment I joined Mc-Wars, I knew I wanted to stay because I had so many people coming up to me to say Hi and then kill me :D! Cocoamaster1 killed me over a dozen times within the first 20 mins! Lilberger15 was the only player that spared my life and took me under his wing to start the faction: TheOfficalRanch. Mc-Wars really helped me perfect the art of typing and communicating with people online. My take away from Mc-Wars is the connection with international players from all around the world. I literally befriended people from my state, people on the East Coast, people from the UK, people from China and Australia. If a person told me in the future my favorite friends lived in Pennsylvania and Ireland I would have laughed in their face and called them crazy. It was unfortunate that the Server had to die because there were so many great family like people that populated it daily. Now it's just time to look to the future and mourn for the many Veterans that brought joy and peace to all of us. Hylemorphica.org has big shoes to fill but with the great work of RadBuilder and the staff, we can make the community great. Below captures a window of time, which my long gone friends live in infamy.

Waiting at the end of Candyland (January 24, 2016)

This was the most disliked Minigame Mayhem map: Candyland. It was for only one reason: it was broken. After this map was griefed, nothing was the same after it was fixed: the shortcuts didn't work, and, as seen in the screenshot, the ending was broken too. Where everyone was standing is where the actual end position was: if anyone jumped on the ending gold, they would be in last, and those before the platform would be in first. This caused extremely long games on only this map.

Fish Slap (January 30, 2016)

This was the Fish Slap game from Minigame Mayhem. While there's nothing specific about this screenshot, the game is memorable for a few reasons: people camped on higher up platforms, knockback was crazy, people always fell on the instant death areas (the string), and people were sometimes knocked into the fenced area (area above and surrounding the last platform) where no-one could reach them.

Everyone got together at spawn after bombing and burning our bases for one last time, just having fun destroying everything.
