A lot of you have been wondering about 1.8.
Currently we support 1.8 clients but don't support the new features yet.
The reason for this, is that our server software cannot handle the new implementations yet. 1.8 is the biggest update to Minecraft to date, so it's logical that an update like this takes a lot of time and effort to create.
If you really want someone to blame for the issues and time this has taken so far, I would say Mojang is the one to point the finger at for not providing good support nor working on the much promised API they said they would create.
To put this update in a time frame, I would have to say that November or December will be the month where we are able to update.
I hope you're all as excited as I am!
