    (before I start this isn't at all hostile from my end and I am not trying to argue, just having a respectful discussion :) )
    Well, the thing is, how many people really play elite survival now? Today I logged in and stayed there for a bit and there were maybe 10 people on at max. It seems as if people have already forgotten about ES as is. And the thing about 'there is land to be discovered' isn't really an agree or disagree statement, I know several people have tried to run out and find a new place, but it would take days. Theres also the issue that when you go out super far, it starts to lag the server and make it less fun to play anyways.

    Lastly, as I mentioned, ES was released in 2016 and hasn't been restarted yet. That's two years. Two years with the same seed, same resources, and 0 updates. We've gone from 1.8 to 1.12, and there have been many many things added to the game that, unless you play single player or on another server that is updated, you haven't been able to experience. I'm not saying that it needs to be restarted right this second, but I do believe that those who have been wanting a reset for the past year should be given the opportunity to experience all of these new things.

    I’d really love for this to be implemented since I haven’t been truly able to play ES due to the massive explored areas by other players already. I hope this suggestion comes to life!

    Absolutely yes.

    I’ve been playing Elite Survival since the very beggining, and have slowly stopped playing as I felt it was getting too dull. I also agree what with has been said by other users, as I also believe the land has been explored massively by the players already. I also love the idea you have said about being able to claim land at spawn to open a shop. In ESv1, I hated trading with people and would rather purchase stuff from shops, but if ESv2 comes alive, I can use a currency system (which is much easier to use, in my opinion). I’m not too fond of 1.12.2, as it almost always causes me major lag, but perhaps we could implement the same plugin we have in creative (where players in lower versions don’t see the blocks, and are instead replaced with blocks from 1.8) for people like me who still want to get in the action but are too laggy to. My favourite thing of all, though, is the weekly/biweekly rewards idea. In ESv1, I completed all of the achievements mainly to get all of the /homes. If we do have a currency system, maybe completeing some rewards can give you +$1000 and some helpful materials, while some give /homes and other useful commands. As you can tell, I am a +1.

    “wait a LONG time for this” We have been. We’ve been playing the same world for over 2 - 2 1/2 years. Most survival servers have sessions with max. of 6 months. v1 was only being kept for those who don’t want to transition and would kept plahing (v1) because they had everything they wanted in v1.

    Then again, this isn't most survival servers. I see why this sounds appealing to you now, and I have changed my opinion to being neutral on this, thank you.

    DW I get accused of being hostile sometimes when really I'm just debating. I know someone who just went running from spawn a while ago, and they found untouched land. There is always land to be discovered. You just have to take a bit of your precious time, decide which way you want to run, and just go.

    I have never experienced lag for having the Discus so far out from spawn, ever. So, I'm not quite sure what you mean when you say "Theres also the issue that when you go out super far, it starts to lag the server and make it less fun to play"

    No, it has never been restarted, and I realize now that it feels like little to me because I was inactive one and a half years. I would not play ESv2 if it were in 1.12 because 1.12 adds new things yes, but the fighting mechanic revamp 1.9 added to MC just kills it for me. There are somethings that are good that have been added recently, but in my opinion theres more bad than good. I see your points, and I am now neutral.

    Well clearly other people do experience lag, you probably just have a better PC than most of them that do experience it.
    There are plugins that can be implemented to get the 1.8 PVP back, while still having all the other new 1.12 things. If they don’t implement one of those plugins then oh well, you can either learn how to use the new combat system, or play on V1.

    looks like i’m a bit late to the party.. anyway, i totally agree with you! i would love a reset to happen in elite survival! it would be a fresh start, a new beginning. I really hope the admins consider implementing this into the server! :)
