A few days ago I asked for you (our players) to help me in testing our new DDoS mitigation service and I’m happy that many of you have done so. Today is stage two of testing and I would very much like you to take part.
We tested a data centre in Italy and now we are testing one in France which offers half the latency (lag). But I need more observations to make an informed decision about which service we’ll be using.
So I’d very much like you to ping three addresses for me. Our Italian data centre, our French data centre and our Server in England.
To do that, on Windows open command prompt and type in ping followed by an address. Here are the three addresses:
Once you’ve pinged each of them I would very much like for you to post the results here on our forums.
Thank you so much – And feel free to play on ddos1.renmx.com or ddos2.renmx.com and post your experiences in the thread aswell.
A couple of days ago we added “Speed Racer” a new Easter Egg by Hall742. Today we’re following that up with “Speed Racer 2” a sequel also made by Hall742 that includes even more unique obstacles than the first. I literally demanded Hall create Speed Racer 2 as his original Easter Egg is extremely popular and has been discussed at length since he built it.
An Easter Egg like this deserves a unique card to go with it and so the first time you complete it you will acquire a “Run 20% Faster” card which like the first Easter Egg’s “Jump 2 Blocks Higher” Card is an Epic level card which lasts 5 minutes and has a 24 hour cooldown.
You’ll find the entrance to this Easter Egg at /warp travel within the japanese building. Go up inside and jump on the bed!
Who are you?
Name is Rav and I’m a 27 year old married man. I live in the US, East coast state of Pennsylvania.
How are you?
Just fine. Hanging a bit to the right today.
When did you join RenMX?
I’ve been with community since January 2008. Via our Winmx network chat room. The channel I hosted merged in with Pris room. Which also was a highly successful room. Been many years now for me.

Six new abilities cards have been added today (as shown above!) these include underwater breathing, 20% faster mining, 20% damage reduction, Drunkenness, 200% higher jumping and Night Vision!
I hope you all enjoy these new cards they range in rarity from Uncommon to Epic!
As part of our year-long easter egg build contest player Hall742 has built an incredibly interesting submission utilising command blocks. In his Easter Egg you’ll find yourself jumping higher and running faster than ever before to complete obstacles. It really is a very unique experience and just the sort of thing we’ve been looking for, unique experiences.
Have fun playing this one, it does give a unique ability card, you’ll find the entrance in one of the japanese buildings at spawn 🙂
