    Hey everyone,

    It’s been a long time since I made an announcement, but I’ve got some big news for PartyZone to share with you all. For the past year, I’ve worked with Gaurav on and off of the network, whether it be coming up with ideas for content or working on the backend. This will now be changing.

    I am going to be the new Owner of PartyZone, and I want to give you as much information about both me and what I’d like to with PartyZone going forward.

    Introduction
    As I’ve never formally given one, I’d like to properly introduce myself so you can get to know me a bit better and understand where I come from and such. My name is John, but most people like to refer to me as Noble, but either one is fine. I am 21 years old, from the United Kingdom, and have been running servers for over 7 years now. Not only have I worked with Gaurav on PartyZone for the last year, but I have also been working on his other network, NemeGaming, for over 2 years, which I have also taken over as Owner.

    Of course, one of the first things you’re probably concerned about is how different both NemeGaming and PartyZone are in terms of both games and the general community. I completely understand that both networks are different in many aspects and that they both have wildly different needs. This is where my past experience comes in.

    There are still over 5 years that I haven’t covered, and that’s where my previous experience comes in strongly. My old network, Noble Craft, was extremely similar to PartyZone in many ways. Most notably, the community was extremely tight-knit where everyone, despite it being a decent size, all knew each other and spoke to each other on a daily basis. We all got along together as a family, and I see all of that here, which is what drives me to want to make things better.

    What’s to Come
    As for what we would like to do starting out, there are a few things we’d like to focus on first before all else.

    We have a few pieces of new content we’re looking to release in the coming weeks which at the very least should help with the current drought. This content will mostly be new cosmetics and additions to Creative in the form of Player Tags and new Emotes.

    Player Tags will be a suffix added after your name in the chat which will range from team tags (#TeamNoble, #TeamKirstree [preferably mine because @Kirstree is bad] etc.) to PartyZone-themed tags. We’ll definitely be open to suggestions to these once there’s more information available about them.

    We’ve seen your suggestions for new Emotes on the forums, and we’ll be taking those into consideration when we get around to implementing new ones.

    Current Situation
    I’m not going to try cover things up and say everything is well when we’re all aware that things have definitely not been going well. That is something I do strive to change, not in words, but in action.

    I hope to be able to accomplish this by looking into as many of the outstanding issues we have logged for Creative and Murder starting out. We’ll have more to say about the other games in the future, but starting out, we want to consolidate our efforts into our most popular modes until we either have the time or the resources to get to the rest.

    For the last month, I’ve been going back and forth with the Admins, staff and community about various topics around PartyZone and what could be done, whether that be through suggestions or meetings with Insights and Management. I’d like to continue doing this to get a good idea of what is actually wanted on the servers, so if you’ve been sitting on any ideas or suggestions for the network, then feel free to suggest them in the forums suggestions and I’ll try to take a look into it.

    What’s Happening to Gaurav?
    He’ll still be around to assist me with anything on the technical side. However, he’ll mostly be focusing his time on his job and other things in life which is part of why I’ve taken over entirely. Simply put, his time was already limited due to other factors, but this was further exemplified in August and since then.

    Admin Q&A
    To kickstart the takeover and give more of a personal introduction, @Kirstree will be hosting an Admin Q&A where we will be answering any questions and feedback you may have. Read more about the Admin Q&A and when it is here!

    New Beginnings
    To celebrate these new beginnings, we’ll be running a(n) (actual) sale of 25% off for a short time on both ranks and Murder names! To take advantage, be sure to head over to our store!

    Conclusion
    I’d personally like to thank you all for sticking with us. I promise that I’ll do everything I can to make PartyZone even better. Having started out as a player myself all the way back in 2015, I know that it’s a scary concept seeing someone else take over what has arguably been a large part of so many people’s lives. We share a common goal. We all want PartyZone to succeed, and with your help, we can make that happen.

    Thank you all for reading, I hope to see you all around the network,

    NobleProductions

    I am unsure about these changes. We will see how they play out with a optimistic attitude.

    Not too sure how I feel about this. I mean, surely Team tags will seperate the "family" sort of vibe you said you liked.

    I get that. With those specifically, there's nothing serious about it, it's all in good spirit with one another.
