As we kick off the new year, it's important to take a look back at the previous year and reflect on the successes and challenges we faced. For Mystic Network, one of the biggest things we did in 2022 was to use Minehut to help advertise our server. While it was somewhat successful, it ultimately wasn't worth the money we spent.
To attract more players to our SMP, we've been exploring other avenues, such as getting in touch with various YouTubers and streamers to arrange recording dates. We're hoping that this will help to increase our player base once again, as it has been a difficult year in this regard.
That said, we've made some significant strides this year already, such as adding new features to Mystic Network. One of the most notable is the custom items available from the /dungeon command. Players can obtain custom penguin gear with incredible enchants, making their gameplay experience even more exciting. We've also introduced a respawnable Ender Dragon, with two different types to choose from. The special Ender Dragon has a chance to drop the coveted Ender Dragon Egg, which is a rare and highly sought-after item.
Another significant change we made this year was to switch to a new claiming plugin, which has been successful in making it easier for new players to understand how to claim land.
We want to express our sincere gratitude to everyone who has stuck with Mystic Network and become part of our amazing community. We couldn't have done it without you, and we look forward to continuing to provide a fun and engaging experience for all players in the coming year. Thank you!
