Due to the lack of interest this idea has been canceled.


Hey there Pika Players!

So a server reset is most likely going to happen in the near future (month or so?) for Survival! Thats absolutely awesome in my opinion (though I know that some might think otherwise). So I would like to get prepared for this server reset! So I'm calling every active donator rank's and above to pay close attention to this post.

Why Only Samurai and Above?

Well I've noticed that over the course of my playing on the Pika Survival Server, people who donate are less likely to rage quit, and usually have a higher activity rate within the server. I know that most Fighters will be upset that only Samurai's and above get to participate in this team, however I would suggest that if you want to participate you donate to the Pika-Network so that you'll be able to join our team! *hint* If you actively play on Pika-Network you should donate anyways that way you're not a mooch. ;P​

So Who Can Join This Team?

Again if you have donated and received one of the following ranks this post applies to you.
  • Samurai
  • Ninja
  • Warlock
  • Alchemist
Other Ranks that can be included but are not limited to are:
  • Builder
  • Helper
Whats the point of this post?

I would like to get together with about 15-20 active playing members of the survival server and start a "Let's Play" Pika series on youtube after the reset. The goal of this "Let's Play" series is to promote the server as a 1.9 enabled server that is fun to play and attract more players to the server, while also having a great time ourselves. As we all know Pika-Network has one of the few "as close to vanilla" servers out there. On average we have about 10-25 players on Monday-Friday, and about 25-80 on the weekend days. I'd like to see those numbers double. I want to bring back the enjoyment, and fun, and even difficulty back into the regular survival mode, and I want to do it with some of my awesome friends here at Pika-Network!​

What is a "Let's Play Series"?

Let's Play Wiki said:
A Let's Play (LP) is a video or series of videos in which the author records gameplay of a video game, while providing commentary in the form of an informal and ideally entertaining chat with the intended audience. The goal is to provide the easiest gameplay experience, so that the viewer doesn't need to own the game itself, any hardware (or emulator), or even go through the effort of actually playing; while also giving the chance for the author to enhance further the experience by providing expert insight about the game's knowledge, secrets, production, franchise, backstory, etc. or just otherwise by making jokes or witty commentaries.

You can go on youtube and type in "Minecraft Let's Play" and you'll be given plenty of options to choose from to get a good example of what a "Let's Play" series is.
What are the other requirements of joining this team?
  • Must speak fluent English
  • Must have a YouTube account (Subscriber Count doesn't matter as we all will be starting from ground zero)
  • Must have a working microphone to provide a commentary on your gameplay
  • Be able to articulate yourself, and be outgoing and fun!
  • Must know how to record yourself playing MineCraft
  • Must know how to edit videos and give a good quality production (Must provide a sample 5 minute long video of you playing MineCraft to show off your video production skills)
  • Must have basic knowledge of the game, the mechanics, and are willing to learn such things. You don't have to be a master at MineCraft, but you should know basic enchants, how to make a bed, or how how to make a piston move with RedStone.
  • Must have TeamSpeak and be an active member of the Pika-Network TeamSpeak.
  • Must be a mature player. Age requirement does not matter so long as you are able to articulate your thoughts in a professional and friendly mature manner.
  • Must not have been banned from the Pika-Network for any reason, ever.
Other requirements will be discussed at a later time.

So, I've gone over the basics of what's required. So what are we actually going to do? Whats the plan? Well, thats a great question. To further discuss this plan, and to show that you're really wanting to be apart of this team, you must come to the meeting on TeamSpeak! When is the meeting you ask? The meeting will be on Sunday, March 27 2016 @ 3PM Eastern Standard Time. (Link to countdown timer provided below) If you do not show up to this meeting there will be two more chances to introduce yourself to the already established team on Wednesday, March 30th @ 10PM Eastern Standard Time, and Saturday, April 2nd @ 1PM Eastern Standard Time. Both of these meetings will be in the "Donator Channels" within the Pika-Network TeamSpeak server which can be access via: ts3.pikacraft.eu . (Just find me and join my channel) At the meeting we will discuss everything from choice of biome we'll be playing in, all the way down to who's good at redstone and who's good at building. We'll also get to know each other, introduce ourselves, tell our experiences in game, and be able to mingle!

Note: If someone you don't like shows up to the meeting, please be adults about your differences, squash them and lets have a great time. Any Immaturity will NOT in ANY way be tolerated at these meetings.

If anyone has any questions about this concept please save them for the meeting on Sunday! I hope to see all you little Pokemon soon! It'll be a great time connecting with other players on Pika-Network!

Edited to include samurai rank. Fighter's are good players yes, however I would only like to extend this offer to those who have donated to the Pika-Network. To Join the team you can donate to the lowest rank and be able to get on the team.

No idea! I'm not from the "Old Days". As while I am a new Pika Member in your sense of the term, I also want to bring a new way of thinking to Pika as well. Why live in the past. Let's look to the future in what pika can become and not what Pika was. Knowing the heritage of where we came from as a community is a good thing and should never be forgotten, however this post is not for that! ;) We'll come up with a name for ourselves during the meeting I'm sure.

Meeting was today. 1PM. Nobody showed up. So, I'm just going to call it and just assume that nobody actually wants to do this since only 2 people are going to actually show up to meetings.

Sorry all, but the only thing you'll see on my youtube channel is tutorials and recorded proof of hackers. :)
