No more realistic biomes.
We have a lobby world now.
A Resource Nether has been generated and can be accessed from the Lobby. Will reset every two weeks.
We have a new main world. Can be accessed via portal in the Lobby. Other main world is still there and you may travel between the two.
Issue With Backpacks:
We almost had a smooth update, but backpacks were corrupted. Through the update the data was corrupted and all backpack data was lost. This happened to everyone, all backpacks were erased.

We are beginning the update procedure to 1.7.2. You can follow progress live at http://bit.ly/ECTrello. This will be a relatively long update procedure, at least 12 hours.

If you have any sort of ban at the moment, you will not be able to enter the Test Server. That said, if you are banned on the test server, the ban carries into our Main Server.
You may connect using test.etriacraft.com or 188.8.131.52. The player cap is limited and will...
