While this would be nice, I believe I remember hearing that Naskel and Killian were going to try and stay away from making it a hub server. I could be wrong so don't listen to me, but I do think skyblock would be cool. Factions seems kinda redundant because we already have towny, which you think about it.... towny is like a mostly peaceful factions.
Maybe in the future they could add skyblock or minigames.
Once again. I'm not staff and I don't fully know their intentions.
