The time has come for the server to start its downtime transition time into the new world and massive new update!
As many of you heard, Ethos is having a full reset of everything on the server. Before you get mad at us, our new dev currywurst discovered that the root cause of our crashing and lag issues (among several other bugs) is caused by an issue within the way player data is saved. This means that when ethos was re-released after its most recent reset, the way of storing player data was not set up right, resulting in things like death loops, crashing, and several other things. In order for us to fully fix everything, we have to reset everything player data related as well as the map. Essentially a full reset of everything.
We will be putting all of the current worlds up for download for you guys to play in single player after we re-open
We know you guys are probably really upset about this considering our last reset was not very long ago, and we totally understand the frustration. We didnt want this to be the case either but our hand was forced for the better. However, we are going to do everything we can to make sure you guys get the best experience following this reset!
- Things that will be reset: Rankup Ranks, Balances, Inventories, PV's, Towny, and the world.
- Things that will be returned after the reset: Honor ranks (more info to come on that), any webstore packages purchased 2 weeks prior to this downtime (also more info coming later), YT ranks (most likely, though this could change)
- We will come back online and release around 9pm CST Sunday 2/18. This may change depending on how things are going with new content. Stay tuned to the discord for more updates on that throughout the weekend.
- When you guys come back, there will be a kit reset with tons of awesome stuff to start you guys off well. Also lots of drop parties and other fun things to look forward to.
- We also have a bunch of new or updated content for you guys to enjoy that will also be applied over the downtime. Stay tuned later for announcements on what that looks like!

Best of luck of your applications everyone,
It’s been so awesome getting to know you guys on the server the last couple weeks. First and foremost I want to thank you guys for all your help with reporting bugs and staying patient during Beta!
Today I am excited to bring you an extensive update that we have been hard at work on. The update includes new features and bug fixes as well as a super cool overhaul to the Gem Drop system.
- 8 new ranks added to the Ethos Rank chain. Along with 8 new ranks we have revamped the rankup rewards and balanced prices
- Improved GemDrop and professions system. In order to give Professions and Gems more importance on EE we revamped the drop system so that blocks and mobs now drop nearly 5x as many Gems which are deposited straight to your balance when you pick them up. Stay on the lookout for Emerald Chunks in your loot drops, these rare chunks can be worth thousands and can be deposited at /Bank.
- Island world added! Type /Warp islandworld to explore our epic new custom terrain world and claim a island as your own!
- McMMO added to the server with custom action bar announcements and custom McMMO stats with /mcstats
- Broadcast announcements added to rare Crate prizes.
