    Hello everybody,

    Today we are coming with some bad news for our players.

    As many of you know, over the course of almost 6 years, BrokenLens gathered millions of registered players around the world, a passionate and talented staff team, and ultimately grew to become a big network sporting 24 game modes and supporting every version of Minecraft: Bedrock Edition and Java Edition after versions 1.1 and 1.8 respectively, Xbox and non-Xbox.
    From anywhere in the world, from any edition, anytime, people can connect, have fun, and make lasting memories and friendships, be it through our server, app or forums.

    As you can imagine, developing, evolving, and maintaining such a big platform up and running is costly and requires a lot of resources.
    We currently have no sponsorships, and depend on sales of ranks and tickets to cover up for hosting expenses, find new development talents, and advertise our platform to a broader audience.

    We chose never to raise rank prices at our store or make the Emerald rank a subscription, even when fees, taxes and extra hosting expenses needed to respond to demand took a toll on our bottom-line.
    This, unfortunately, came with the disadvantage that it severely limited our ability to generate enough monthly revenue to reinvest in hosting and further development of BrokenLens.

    And I know this will be upsetting news for some, but today I'm saddened to announce that due to lack of necessary funding to support it, we will be delisting the following game modes in the upcoming days:
    - QuakeCraft
    - TeamQuakeCraft
    - MicroBattles
    - TeamSurvivalGames
    - SurvivalGames
    - DrawAndGuess
    - BowSpleef
    - TNTTag
    - TagHunters
    - OneInTheChamber
    - TeamBuildBattles

    These modes are a huge part of our history, and I know some of you will miss them just as much as we will.
    Leaderboards, achievements, map ratings, and stats, however, will remain unaffected and still be accessible from our app.

    With your support, however, we do intend to bring these modes back in a bigger way, with improved gameplay mechanics, better knockback for PvP games, new props, and new maps from our amazing and talented build team!

    We kindly ask those who enjoy and appreciate our work, and those who would like to see what we have in store for the future, including, but not limited to, new game modes, new cosmetics, events, more regions, faster updates and so much more, please help us achieve our vision and evolve into an even bigger network and community.
    Please head over to our store at https://store.brlns.net and purchase an item for you or a friend this Christmas!
    Or if you are on Android, you can download our app and purchase our items via Google Play. you can get it following this link https://brlns.net/android

    For the month of December through Christmas and New Years, we will have 10% off all ranks sold at the store.
    Every penny coming from rank and ticket sales will be reinvested into BrokenLens for a better gaming experience for everyone to enjoy.

    If you cannot help financially, but still would like to support us, you can vote for us at http://brlns.net/vote for in-game rewards!
    You can also share BrokenLens with your friends, youtube and social media! our IP is play.brlns.net on the default port for both Java and Bedrock editions.
    The more friends you have to play with, the more fun you will have playing! Sharing goes a long way helping us make sure you have a good time here.

    Thank you for your continued support.
    Happy Holidays,

    Gabriel | BrokenLens Founder

    Hallo zusammen,

    Heute haben wir leider schlechte Nachrichten für unsere Spieler.

    Wie viele von euch wissen, haben wir auf BrokenLens eine Spielerbasis von mehreren Millionen Spielern von der ganzen Welt, ein talentiertes und leidenschaftliches Staff Team und sind letztendlich auch zu einem großen Netzwerk geworden, welches 24 Spielmodi und jede Version von Minecraft: Bedrock Edition und Java Edition nach den Versionen 1.1 und 1.8 bzw. Xbox und non-Xbox unterstützt. Von überall in der Welt, von jeder Version, zu jeder Zeit, können sich Spieler treffen, Spaß haben, Erinnerungen sammeln und Freundschaften schließen. Sei es durch Server, App oder Forums.

    Wie ihr euch wahrscheinlich denken können, ist das Entwickeln, Programmieren und Aufrechterhalten von so einer großen Plattform kostspielig und erfordert viele Ressourcen. Wir haben aktuell keine Sponsoren und sind abhängig von den Verkäufen von Rängen und Tickets, um Hosting-Kosten abzudecken und neue Entwickler Talente zu finden, bzw. um für ein breiteres Publikum zu werben.

    Wir haben uns entschieden niemals die Preise für Ränge zu erhöhen oder den Emerald Rang ein Abonnement zu machen, selbst wenn Steuern, Gebühren und extra Hosting-Kosten, welche benötigt wurden um auf die Nachfrage zu reagieren, unser Endergebnis stark beeinträchtigt haben.

    Dies kam leider mit dem Nachteil das es unsere Fähigkeiten, genügend monatliche Einnahmen zu bekommen, um in Hosting und die Entwicklung von BrokenLens zu reinvestieren, stark beeinträchtigt hat.


    Und ich weiß, das werden jetzt enttäuschende Nachrichten für manche sein, aber heute muss ich leider bekannt geben, das aufgrund von Mangel an notwendiger Finanzierung um diese zu unterstützen, die folgenden Spiele in den nächsten Tagen entfernt werden:

    - QuakeCraft
    - TeamQuakeCraft
    - MicroBattles
    - TeamSurvivalGames
    - SurvivalGames
    - DrawAndGuess
    - BowSpleef
    - TNTTag
    - TagHunters
    - OneInTheChamber
    - TeamBuildBattles

    Diese Modi sind ein großer Teil unserer Geschichte, und ich weiß viele von euch werden sie genauso so stark vermissen wie wir.

    Leaderboards, Achievements, Map Bewertungen und Stats bleiben jedoch unbeeinflusst und sind immer noch aufrufbar über die App.


    Mit eurer Unterstützung haben wir jedoch vor, diese Modi in einem größeren Wege zurückzubringen, mit verbesserter Gameplay Technik, besserem Knockback für PvP Spiele, besseren Props und neuen Maps von unserem tollen und talentierten Build Team!

    Wir bitten freundlich, dass diese, welche unsere Arbeit genießen und anerkennen, und diese welche gerne sehen würden was wir alles noch auf Lager haben, eingeschlossen, aber nicht nur, neue Spielmodi, neue Cosmetics, Events, mehr Regionen, schnellere Updates und noch viel viel mehr, bitte helft uns unsere Visionen zu erreichen und uns zu einem noch größeren Netzwerk und einer noch größeren Community zu entwickeln.

    Bitte geht zu unsrem Store unter https://store.brlns.net und kauft etwas für euch oder eure Freunde dieses Weihnachten!

    Oder falls ihr auf Android seid, dann könnt ihr euch unsere App herunterladen und unsere Produkte über Google Play kaufen. Ihr könnt die App über folgenden Link bekommen: https://brlns.net/android


    Für den Monat Dezember, über Weihnachten und Neujahr, sind alle Ränge in unserem Store um 10% günstiger.

    Jeder Cent, der durch den Verkauf von Rängen bzw. Tickets eingenommen wird, wird wieder reinvestiert in BrokenLens für eine bessere Spielerfahrung damit alle Spaß haben.

    Falls ihr nicht finanziell helfen könnt, aber uns trotzdem unterstützen wollt, könnt ihr für uns unter http://brlns.net/vote abstimmen und auch Belohnungen auf dem Server dafür erhalten!

    Ihr könnt auch BrokenLens mit euren Freunden, auf Youtube und Social Media teilen! Unsere IP ist play.brlns.net und der voreingestellte Port für sowohl Java als auch Bedrock Edition. Desto mehr Freunde ihr auf dem Server zum Spielen habt, desto mehr Spaß werdet ihr beim Spielen haben!

    Teilen lohnt sich wirklich um uns zu helfen und trägt dazu bei, dass ihr eine gute Zeit hier habt.


    Danke für eure fortwährende Unterstützung.
    Frohe Feiertage,


    Gabriel | BrokenLens Gründer

    Halo semuanya,

    Hari ini kami datang dengan beberapa berita buruk untuk para pemain kami.

    Seperti yang Anda ketahui, selama hampir 6 tahun, BrokenLens mengumpulkan jutaan para pemain yang teregistrasi di seluruh dunia, tim staf kami yang bersemangat dan berbakat yang akhirnya berkembang menjadi sebuah jaringan yang besar yang menggunakan 24 mode permainan dan mendukung setiap versi Minecraft: Edisi Bedrock dan Java setelah versi 1.1 dan 1.8 masing-masing, Xbox dan non-Xbox.
    Dari mana pun di dunia, dari berbagai versi, kapanpun, orang-orang dapat terkoneksi, memiliki kesenangan dan membuat kenang-kenangan serta persahabatan abadi, baik melalui server, aplikasi atau forum kami.

    Seperti yang dapat Anda bayangkan, mengembangkan dan memelihara platform sebesar itu dan menjalankannya membutuhkan banyak biaya dan sumber biaya.
    Saat ini kami tidak memiliki sponsor dan bergantung pada penjualan rank dan tiket untuk menutupi biaya hosting. Mencari pengembangan bakat dan mempromosikan platform kami kepada hadirin yang lebih luas.

    Kami memilih untuk tidak pernah menaikkan harga rank di toko kami atau menjadikan rank Emerald sebagai langganan, bahkan ketika biaya, pajak dan biaya hosting tambahan yang diperlukan untuk menanggapi permintaan yang membebani laba kami.
    Ini, sayangnya, datang dengan kerugian yang sangat membatasi kemampuan kami untuk menghasilkan pendapatan bulanan yang cukup untuk diinvestasikan kembali dalam hosting dan pengembangan lebih lanjut dari BrokenLens

    Dan saya tahu ini akan menjadi berita yang mengecewakan bagi sebagian orang, tetapi hari ini saya dengan sedih mengumumkan bahwa karena kurangnya dana yang diperlukan untuk mendukungnya, kami akan menghapus mode permainan-permainan berikut dalam beberapa hari mendatang:

    - QuakeCraft
    - TeamQuakeCraft
    - MicroBattles
    - TeamSurvivalGames
    - SurvivalGames
    - DrawAndGuess
    - BowSpleef
    - TNTTag
    - TagHunters
    - OneInTheChamber
    - TeamBuildBattles

    Mode-mode itu adalah sebuah bagian yang besar dari sejarah kita dan saya tahu beberapa dari Anda akan merindukan mereka seperti kami juga.
    Namun, papan peringkat, pencapaian, peringkat peta dan statistik tidak akan terpengaruh dan masih dapat diakses dari aplikasi kami.

    Dengan dukungan Anda, namun, kami bermaksud untuk mengembalikan mode-mode ini dengan cara yang lebih besar, dengan mekanika gameplay yang ditingkatkan, knockback yang lebih baik untuk game-game PvP, alat peraga baru dan peta-peta baru dari tim build kami yang luar biasa!

    Kami dengan hormat meminta mereka yang menikmati dan menghargai pekerjaan kami dan mereka yang ingin melihat apa yang kami miliki untuk masa depan, termasuk, tetapi tidak terbatas pada, mode permainan baru, kosmetik baru, acara, lebih banyak wilayah, pembaruan lebih cepat dan lebih banyak lagi, mohon bantuannya untuk kami mencapai visi kami dan berkembang menjadi jaringan dan komunitas yang lebih besar.
    Silakan kunjungi toko kami di https://store.brlns.net dan beli barang-barang untuk Anda atau teman di Natal ini!
    Atau jika Anda menggunakan Android, Anda dapat mengunduh aplikasi kami dan membeli barang kami melalui Google Play. Anda bisa mendapatkannya dengan mengikuti tautan ini https://brlns.net/android

    Untuk bulan Desember hingga Natal dan Tahun Baru, kami akan memiliki diskon 10% untuk semua rank yang dijual di toko.
    Setiap sen yang berasal dari rank dan penjualan tiket akan diinvestasikan kembali ke BrokenLens untuk pengalaman bermain game yang lebih baik untuk dinikmati semua orang.

    Jika Anda tidak dapat membantu secara finansial, tetapi masih ingin mendukung kami, Anda dapat memilih kami di http://brlns.net/vote untuk mendapatkan hadiah di dalam game!
    Anda juga dapat berbagi konten BrokenLens dengan teman, youtube dan media sosial Anda! Alamat IP kami adalah play.brlns.net pada port default untuk Edisi Java dan Bedrock.
    Semakin banyak teman yang Anda ajak bermain, semakin menyenangkan Anda bermain! Berbagi sangatlah membantu kami untuk memastikan bahwa Anda akan bersenang-senang di sini.

    Terima kasih atas dukungan Anda yang berkelanjutan
    Selamat berlibur,

    Gabriel | Pendiri BrokenLens

    Kamusta kayong lahat,

    Ngayon may ipapahatid kaming masamang balita para sa aming manlalaro.

    Tulad ng marami sa inyo, sa loob ng 6 years, ang BrokenLens ay Nagtipon-tipon ng milyong-milyong rehistradong manlalaro sa buong mundo, maraming madamdamin at mahuhusay na staff, at sa huli ay lumaki upang maging isang big network na gumagamit ng 24 game modes at ito ay sumusuporta sa bawat version ng Minecraft: Bedrock Edition 1.1, Java Edition 1.8, xbox and non-xbox.
    Mula saanman sa mundo, mula sa anumang edisyon, anumang oras, at gumawa ng mga pangmatagalang alaala
    At pagkakaibigan, maging ito sa pamamagitan ng aming server, app o ang forums.

    Sa naiisip mo, Developing, evolving at pagme-maintaining ng malaking platform at pagpapatakbo ay magastos at kina-kailangan ng madaming resources.
    Kasakalukuyan wala kaming sponsorship at nakadipende kami sa pagbebenta ng mga ranks at ticket para pagtakpan ang mga gastos sa pagho-host, maghanap ng talento sa pag-unlad, at i-advertise ang aming platform sa malawak na madla.

    Pinili naming hindi kailanman magtaas pa ng presyo kada ranks sa store o gawing subscription ang Emerald rank, kahit mga fees, taxes at pandagdag sa hosting expenses ay kailangan tumugon sa demand ay naapektuhan sa aming ilalim na linya.
    Ito, sa kasamaang-palad, ay may kasamang kawalan na labis nitong nalilimitahan ang aming kakayahang makabuo ng monthly revenue o buwanang kita upang muling ma-muhunan sa pagho-host at higit pang pagbuo ng BrokenLens.

    At alam kong ito ay nakalungkot na balita sa iba, pero ngayong ikinalulungkot ko na i-announce na dahil sa kakulangan at kinakailangang ng pondo para suportahan ito, aalisin namin ang mga sumusunod na gamemodes sa darating na araw:
    -QuakeCraft
    - TeamQuakeCraft
    - MicroBattles
    - TeamSurvivalGames
    - SurvivalGames
    - DrawAndGuess
    - BowSpleef
    - TNTTag
    - TagHunters
    - OneInTheChamber
    - TeamBuildBattles

    Itong mga modes na ito ay naging malaking bahagi ng ating kasaysayan, at alam kong sa inyo na mami-miss ang mga ito tulad namin. Leaderboards, achievement, map rating, at stats, pero, hindi ito magiging affected at ito ay magiging accesible sa ating app.

    Sa inyong suporta, nilalayon namin na ibalik ang mga modes sa malaking paraan, na mas pinahusay pa ang gameplay mechanics, maayos na knockback para sa PvP Games, bagong props, at bagong mapa para sa ating magaling at mahusay na build team!

    Inihihiling sana namin sa mga nag e-enjoy at na-appreciate ang aming mga gawa, at sa mga gustong makita kung anong naiimbak namin para sa hinaharap, kabilang ang, ngunit limitado sa, Bagong Game modes, new cosmetics, events, more regions, faster updates at madami pang iba, tulungan niyo kami para mai-achieve ang ating pananaw at umunlad sa isang mas malaking network at komunidad.
    Maari kayong pumunta sa aming store sa https://store.brlns.net/ at mag purchase ng item para sayo o para sa kaibigan sa malalapit na kapaskuhan! Kung ikaw ay nasa android platform, pwede mong i-download ang aming app at i-purchase ang mga items via google play. Makukuha mo ito sa pamamagitan ng link na ito. https://brlns.net/android

    Para sa buwan ng december hanggang pasko at bagong taon, magkakaroon kami ng 10% off sa lahat ng ranks na naibebenta sa store.
    Ang bawat sentimos nagmumula sa ranks at ticket sales ay muling ilalagay sa BrokenLens para sa mabuting gaming experience para sa lahat na nage-enjoy.

    Kung hindi ka makakatulong sa panlalapi, kung gusto mo kaming suportahan, pwede mo kaming iboto sa link na ito http://brlns.net/vote para sa mga in-game rewards!
    Pwede mo din i-share ang BrokenLens sa iyong kaibigan, youtube at sa mga social medias! Ito ang ating IP Address play.brlns.net sa default port both Bedrock at Java Editions. Mas marami ka pang kaibigan na makakalaro, mas masaya ka pa paglalaro! Malaki ang naitulong ng pagbabahagi sa amin matiyak mas masaya ka na rito.

    Salamat inyong patuloy na pagsusuporta.
    Happy hollydays,

    Gabriel | BrokenLens Founder

    Wow.

    I saw this on Sunday and honestly, I had no words. I've been putting off responding and considered not responding at all, but I couldn't stop thinking about it, so... here I am.

    I joined BL almost 6 years ago, when it was still in its infancy. For around 3 years, this server and especially this community was the biggest, most important thing in my life. I still remember joining OITC for the first time, completely clueless as to what I was supposed to do. I remember looking up to the people on the leaderboards, completely awed by their talent. Some of the first people I met were Manwee and Lia and somehow, I managed to become friends with them and they introduced me to so many other amazing people in the OITC community. We all felt like one big family.

    Despite all the drama, the mistakes and the flaws, BL is still close to my heart and it'll remain that way forever. I've met so many amazing people both in game and on the forums and we all had so many wonderful and fun times together. I've played every mini game at least once and despite all the bugs and glitches, I still managed to create fond memories playing with friends I loved. Even though this community has changed and grown so much over the years, with many including myself growing away from Minecraft... to me, BL will always be remembered as my second family.

    Vertx, I hope you get sufficient donations and support to continue running the server. What you've created is truly impressive and I hope you can continue providing fun and engaging gameplay alongside fostering a lovely and accepting community. Best of luck to you and everyone on the staff team.

    Thank you for everything.
