Hello everyone!

It has been awhile since we have done a post like this and due to the influx of helper applications, I think a nice little guide for filling out helper applications would be of great help.

So first off, let us all welcome our four new helpers to the team!

  • ShiftyShift
  • ItsTacoTime (Formally ZoomBug)
  • 0minous_
  • MoneyT20
All applications have been answered and closed. If you didn't get accepted this time, do not worry!
Wait a few weeks and try again!

*Be sure to read the rest of this post to get a few pointers on how to better your next application.*


So let us start on this "Guide."

Before you even begin filling out an application. You should consider:

  • Am I NEW to the the server? - We do not accept players that have been on the server for less than one month on the server. This is so you can get to know the community and staff.
  • How ACTIVE am I on the server? - In order for you to have a chance at staff, you have to be on the server quite often. (We do take into account school and work).
  • Do I TALK to the other players and staff? - One of the key elements we look for are players that actively talk to other players either via teamspeak or chat. We don't want someone on the team that doesn't know our community or want to take the time to get to know our current staff.
  • What do I do to HELP out the server? - We look for players that actively help other players and assist our staff. We want players that are willing to prove to us they want to help just to help. (Trust me, we know the difference between helping to help and helping to get something out of it).
  • What does my HISTORY look like?...

Hello Players!

This summer the Nirvana Network is ready for action. Over the past year Nirvana has worked hard to combine the best of our game modes into one network. We’ve built an entirely new hub, worked hard to be 1.8, 1.9, and 1.10 compatible and improved overall game-play. Come and play like never before with the classic Cubed Chaos, Lone Survivor, Skyblock Voyage, and newly released Towny. Not to mention the re-launch of the much loved Crusade game-mode.

Nirvana has long been a PvP community. Minecraft as a whole has come a long way, and with the new combat updates came the heartbreaking realization that our favorite PvP game-modes would need work, and a lot of it. Our main concern has always been quality. We temporarily took down the buggy servers, and have worked endlessly to prepare them for a relaunch that would bring them back to their original glory. This is the time, this is the Summer! Prepare yourselves for a lot of updates, relaunches, and action.
It starts now.

CUBED CHAOS
  • New Season - Cubed’s next season starts soon! Early summer 2016!
  • New Map - Build yourself up from the bottom. Start from the beginning and rule them all.

TOWNY
  • Newly Released - Hyrealm Towny recently merged with the Nirvana Network
  • PvP, Economy, and RPG - This summer Towny is releasing epic updates to include in-depth questlines, faction PvP (arena, 1v1, teams), dungeons for legendary drops custom weapons and armor.

SKYBLOCK VOYAGE
  • Newly Released - Combining the best of our skyblock servers into one, epic server
  • Stronger Economy - Well balanced, tested and true.
  • Epic Crates - Newly released crates. These will contain unique items and tools.

CRUSADE
  • 1.9 -1.10 ready!
  • Late summer 2016

NirvanaMc can be a busy place. It's not easy for everyone to stay up to date on what's happening and what our plans are for the network. So I wanted to give you guys a little peak at some of the cool things coming this summer!

Skyblock will be receiving an update! You can view more details here:
