    After several months of discussions we have decided to add back in game kits and perks. These kits and perks are items and commands that you have paid for and I am so happy to be able to give them back to you. I hope this makes you happy as well. Some of the perks and commands are still being added.
    We thank you for your patience.

    Questions:
    • Is this going against the EULA? Yes.
    • What does going against this EULA mean for mineverse? It means that you guys will be able to play and receive the perks you paid for without worry.
    • What if we get blacklisted? This has happened several times throughout the last year and we will continue to bypass as we have. For those of you having connection issues try downloading SquidHQ. This will be able to help you join with no issue.
    There are more changes to come but this one in particular makes me very happy.
    You guys deserve the perks you have paid for and I am so happy to be able to return them.

    This is honestly so great to hear. But will servers like Kit PvP 1 get donor kits or will they stay how they were?

    Single-sided-compulsory contracts are not always a good thing, nor are they always enforceable either. It sounds like greed, jealousy, and monopolization is driving the spirit of the EULA. There could actually be a strong case made for the precedence of allowing such behavior to exist for many years prior to their half-heated attempts to start spotty-enforcement "after" they tried to build up their Realms (and hence the monopolization aspects). I really have not been following Mojang that closely, but I don't think they have attempted to take anyone to court yet, which leads me to believe they don't want to put their EULA under judicial scrutiny at risk of it being torn apart.

    Of course... my my opinion. Please don't use this as legal advice. lol... :)

    I think this was a good business decision on your part and also smart. The Eula really puts stress on funding servers to stay operative and still run at an okay optimization. As long as you can keep a player base while being blocked then you're good. One thing I do suggest though possibly add new features to donation perks so people will be more tempted to donate. Since you're going against the Eula you have a lot of more freedom giving you more power to add more plugins, rank perks & more. Make sure to also invest more into advertisement because it could also affect your player count dramatically if your server is blocked from joining regularly.

    I think I made my point pretty well... my original comments about the EULA kind of reminds me of the crap in the EULA... nobody really reads it and they just blindly go on. :) lol...

    I suppose that is yet another thing you can do with a EULA. :)

    Overall this is a good move. :)
