  2. At this time we are unable to service emails to Outlook, Hotmail, or other Microsoft-provided email addresses. If you are using one of these providers you will be unable to /register for an account or receive password reset emails.

    If your account uses one of these providers, you can use the command /changeemail in game to change to another email account. If you did not receive your registration email, you may acquire it by resetting your password on the website once you have changed to a non-Microsoft email.

    I wasn't aware Mojang's API allowed you to differentiate between legacy vs migrated accounts. Cool that it is being put to use.
    I'm guessing there were very few players who were not cheaters using unmigrated accounts, then?

    The opposite, the majority of the cheaters use Non Full Access or Semi Full Access accounts. You can buy them by the hundreds for a few bucks. Unmigrtated accounts are mainly used for storage alts because you can change the Email, Security Questions, Password, literally everything about the account. Making UFAs one of the safest way to store extra loot

    Imagine doing volunteer work on a minecraft server and not getting paid and getting shit on by the community versus spending your time on a paying job and arguably being appreciated for that a lot more

    really makes you go HMMMMM

    Ghost clients, by their very nature, are tricky to detect. We have a standard of evidence that must be obtained before an account is banned for modified client - therefore banning such individuals can be time consuming / very difficult. Radar modifications are also not permitted, as per our rules and as such a permanent ban will also apply.

    As for rank upgrades we did acknowledge this in our Year Ahead 2019 thread:




    We spend our free time to try and improve Shotbow by whatever means we can. This new policy is one of many we've implemented in the last few years to help reduce the burden on our admin teams and help keep Shotbow a fairer place to play, along with content updates and other improvements.


    Thanks for being supportive and understanding - it's rare that we get that the staff team get acknowledgment (or defense!) for what we try to do, so cheers :)

    I can't tell if I have a legacy account so I will wait for the change to see.

    Hmmm, why does the staff still use the volunteer card yet still refuse help from arguably qualified devs and community members who want to help this server?

    Bro, it was a compliment. For those that don't speak common I'll explain it in words you can understand.
    He was just expositing his indulgence in his managerial position, and is forthright about his feelings on the diction of your support.

    I believe you call that a conflagration.
