As you all have heard a deal has been approved for Microsoft to buy Mojang. What is Mojang? Mojang is the company that created and owns Minecraft. So what is happening is Notch, Jeb, and Jakob the founders and creators of Minecraft can no longer handle running a Global Company therefore they are selling it to Microsoft who can handle it, but don't worry cause according to the post made by Mojang at www.mojang.com they will probably keep all of the Developers, and it will still be on all platforms (Ex: Xbox PS3 iOS, Pc/Mac.) This sale will be Microsoft buying Mojang for 2.5 Billion U.S.D.

What does this mean for the future of McBc?
McBestCraft will be fine and continue to thrive. Basically we have no plans to shut down McBc because of this.
Yes minecraft 1.8 is out and they have added many features! With the eleven months of building this update, they have released many things: Bunnies, Barrier blocks, Banners, Granite... to name only a few...
But the question most of you are asking is when will the server update to 1.8, and when can we use the 1.8 features?
Well, when there is an update, there is always new source code. With 1.7, approx 7,000 lines of codes were changed, this alone was one major reason why Bukkit and Spigot took a long while to update. With 1.8, however, this does not appear to be the case and most are expecting a much faster updating process. With Spigot's releases, they will commonly release an update that allows users to play on older hosts with newer clients. THis of course means you cannot use any features added with the new code until the proper update is completed but you will still be able to get on your favorite servers. Another thing to keep in mind is that other than Bukkit/Spigot, plugins are version based, meaning we will also need to wait for some important plugins to update to compatible versions.
Atreyu and the rest of the staff are already preparing for the work involved on ensuring the best of features for you, and we are hoping to get the server to 1.8 with its features as soon as we possibly can.
If you are having difficulties with changing your version back to 1.7, then please use one of the links provided below. We hope you understand that we can not get the server updated right away, since we will need to patiently wait for the authors of Spigot and plugins to update to 1.8. Thank you and we hope you understand!
We are sure you have all noticed a bit of "changes" or "updates" happening at Spawn. In the midst of all of these "updates" we have made a lounge for ALL Players. That's right. YOU. We felt that we should give back to the community for all your dedication and care for us. From following the rules and keeping such a steady heart for people you do not even know. Your daily dose of McBestCraft and votes are appreciated more than you know.
Not many people get to hear how appreciated they are in real life and in the gaming community as well. Here on McBestCraft we all are one community, and ultimately lets face it, a family.
When you have a bad day at school, work, with friends, or even with your family most of you hop online and join into our server to see the friends you have made and/or brought into the server with you upon joining. This is what we love to see everyday. It is awesome how one game and one idea can bring people from all over a planet to connect and share there imaginations for a few hours a day.
