Badlion Network: Last Owner AMA
Are you guys open to the idea of OCN-gamemode PUGS integrated into BLC?
I don't think the OCN gamemodes have a place in Minecraft anymore as a whole…but in terms of integrating more stuff into BLC I'm open for it if we think there will be positive return for it.

I would love to see OCN take off still, but I don't think it will happen to the scale of what OCN was during it's peak.

Ty for the good times.

Which 3 youtubers do you think contributed most to the success of Badlion in its early days?

How much was Badlion sold for (Probably can't answer)

Is Archy still being paid from TEO?

Is BLC a bitcoin miner like ESEA? x d
Dfield by far had the biggest contribution to Badlion's success early on. Honestly he is the sole person that sticks out that did the most for us. Hope he is happy and doing well, I follow him on Twitter and it seems like he is.

Can't answer.

Not my question to answer.

No lol

Dfield hands down was #1. He was loyal, understanding, a great guy, had an amazing community behind him, had lots of other youtuber friends that he would bring, and was very involved in molding BL to be better for the community. He LOVED this server and wanted to see it succeed. It's hard to think of two others as #2 and #3, but just think of people from the cube, what is now "nucleus stream team" and their friends, or possibly the spanish/german stream groups and they were all very important.

1. Opinions on mojang
2. any dirt on mojang
3. any admins or partners (from any given time) u hate but had to be nice to/ with because of the server
4. do u rly have hope for mc as esports cuz i lost it a long time ago
5. why did badlion die
6. be as harsh as u want on me
Mojang is just doing whatever they are told to. They don't have much say these days anymore.

Nothing I can reveal.

I don't really wanna start beef. I think the whole Ultra thing damaged the community as a whole, but that's about it. Just sped up what was bound to happen.

Not as much anymore. I really did a few years back though.

Badlion Network has died because Minecraft is dying.

Nah bro, you were a good and loyal player and I love you for that. Sorry you weren't a few years older to be bigger when Minecraft was peaking.

1. Yep they have no control nor power, microsoft 100% controls them.

2. Can't reveal

3. I'm not going to start drama but I mean, from watching me tweet/stream you should have a pretty good idea of people I don't respect in that category.

4. Nope it's gone, but I fully believed in it early 2017 and earlier.

5. Minecraft is dying and people are moving on, especially our community.

6. I think you are a good dude, and were for the most part supportive of BL even when it wasn't your main server. I think you sometimes say some really stupid and ignorant things, but who doesn't. You would have been way more successful inside of this community if you were older and came a few years earlier.

Please archive the forums, don't delete them.
I'll archive this one post and nothing else!

If there are no legal reasons why we can't archive it I don't really have an issue with it.

It's my goal to archive everything.

Which part of the server was the hardest to develop, which developer would you say is the best at plugins?
I never really had issues personally developing anything on the server, but I do know things like MCP, Season 13, and such had really hard issues with the developers who did it.

It's hard to say who is best once everyone is educated and experienced. Maybe Gberry can give more insight on this as I've been pretty cut off from the dev team since ESL and the sell.
 1
PM Link
Yeah as Archy said he hasn't done anything development wise for a while, and even then he never did plugin stuff really (minus 2 or so occasions).

I don't think there is a single developer that was the best at plugins.

As far as the hardest part to develop I would say GCheat & the store (store providers like paypal are ass).

Even these were not difficult..just annoying.

Does the anticheat only kick in if your BAC protected servers?
In regards to you as a player, yes

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Opinion on how the staff team has changed over the years? Like do you think it's become better, worse, the same?

Opinion on me?

Any music or artists you would like to recommend to me?

Any games you recommend I should play?
Hopefully married and with a family (whether it just be my wife + pets, children, or whatever my wife wants) - I also expect me to be a senior or higher software engineer somewhere, maybe still at boeing or maybe elsewhere.

I think the staff team has had it's up and downs. I wouldn't really compare the current staff team to anything as it's basically been neglected, but the fact that it's been neglected for almost 6 months and it's still functional and standing really speaks to the organization and structure of it.

As I said earlier, my opinions are reserved mostly for private and people very close to me.

Nothing I would recommend, I find most of my shit by making a playlist on spotify then running spotify radio on the playlist.

If you like
RTS: go for SC2 or wait for AoE4
MMO: there are several MMOs coming out this year, but WoW is still the classic and one of the best, if not the best. Black desert is good if you like asian grind styled MMO
Shooters: Overwatch, CSGO, RS6
Single Player RPGs: Final Fantasy X is still the best game ever created in this category. Last of Us is also really good.
MOBAs: PUBG/Fortnite

No clue…i hate this question because things change too much in life.

I think the people have changed in the staff team over time but minus the first 6 months I really don't think much has changed with it overall. A bunch of hard working people that do what they love.

If cheatbreaker releases, do you think BLC and cheatbreaker will become rival clients?
If cheatbreaker stays on 1.7 and only for frozenorb, nope.
 0
PM Link
I think cheatbreaker is aiming towards a different objective than Badlion Client is at the moment.

When was the last time either of you enjoyed playing the game as opposed to running a server etc?
I lost interest in the game towards the end of summer 2016 as a player when the majority of my friends left the game
 1
PM Link
Pretty much the same as Archy. I was never as big on playing Minecraft…but 2016 was the end of it for me.

If by any chance, minecraft returns to 1.7 pvp or adds a option for it, will you attempt to recreate Badlion Network?
No, but I might help other servers/work on one unrelated to BL.

Opinions on the DJTasty / MineHQ drama?
Opinions on MINEHQ / Cheatbreaker opening up very soon?
What was your opinion since you first opened up badlion to now about jhalt and minehq with all of their servers?
3 most OG people that you have known and are friends with on badlion or anything else
Really am not educated enough on it to make an opinion.

Errr, most of the OG players are OCN or BL faction players.

Please consider this https://www.badlion.net/forum/thread/214497?page=1 I'm sure it would mean a lot for many people.

Also copying reb since the thread isn't getting that much attention (yet) so I have time!

"6. be as harsh as u want on me"
I think you always have your heart in the right place, but by god do you say some really stupid things. I think you'll have great success in life once you more fully think before you speak.

^ What Archy said. Heart is in the right place, u just need to think before you speak.

GBerry: What are you gonna do now that Badlion is closing?

And Archy: Good luck with Boeing, hope it works out for you :)
Thanks

I am still working here at Badlion and focussing on making the Badlion Client the main Minecraft client in the community. We want to help unite the remaining Minecraft players instead of letting the community continue to shrink up.

I also might be working on some more projects later this year.

To Archy: Without Badlion do you think you could have gotten the job at Boeing? Are you excited to re-locate to Seattle?

Gberry: Are you returning to the states or just gonna stay in Austria?
I think I might have, but I wouldn't be put onto a project such I have currently been (it's pretty high-tech). I got it through my school career fair and Badlion definitely helped me stand out, but it's not all I had.

PM Link
I'm still living in Austria at the moment since Iris still is in university. In another 2 years my life in terms of relocation is an open book at the moment. No clue where I will be.

A few of my friends who are playing the eu 5v5 tournament are banned, but we were told they can still play if they use the BAC right? They are trying to log on badlion using it but they are still banned.
This is because BAC is currently offline due to a bug, have the tournament leaders temp unban him.
 0
PM Link
Yeah :( Sorry about BAC being offline but it was unexpected with some of the improvements we made earlier this week.

People are randomly crashing and we would rather have the non-banned players be able to use the client and not crash versus use the client and crash all the time.

Just wanted to say that you guys had a huge impact on me in the past 6 years. I learned a lot by watching you guys handle situations and it really was a pleasure being part of the team.

I guess I will leave a question since its AMA.

If you were to develop 1 game, what kind of game type would it be and what kind of setting would it be based on?
It was a pleasure for you to be here with us the whole time.

MMO, futuristic realistic or current day with something special integrated, kinda like secret world, or division.
 0
PM Link
I love you bro and wish we were able to do more together. I hope you are here to stay :)

As far as a game I would build….I love RTS…but i know they aren't the most popular thing in the market. To be honest this is a hard one to answer but I would prolly just stick to RTS since it's what i know the best.
