An update has been pushed out that has fixed a few issues, notably fixing the server lag caused when players join the server.
In addition, the bug where players do not drop inventories on some maps when killed has been fixed.
This update will be propagated out to all servers within about 30-40 minutes at most.
Yes you heard right! The PlanetMinecraft.com community are teaming up with MCSG to host the first ever Arena Map Making contest for their site! Win cool prizes like a $120 steam gift card and other perks in both PMC and MCSG! Have an idea for a map you been holding off making? Well now is the time to post it on Planet Minecraft and submit it to the contest! Some of you already been noting that there are special PMC servers. Those servers will be used to add in maps submitted to the contest for judging by the public. So these servers will be removed once the contest is over, but that is why they are there. They will be turned on once people start submitting maps to judge.
What more information? Be sure to check out the contest located here:...
