HEY EVERYONE!
The time has come, a Sonic Reset!


Wait, Mblaseee! What does this mean?!

We’re moving forward from the current state of the Sonic server. Resetting ALL player data, stats, items, values, basically, everything besides your ranks and your permanent store purchases will be reset.

What is happening with the current Sonic Server?

When is it going to reset?
We're aiming for Wednesday, Nov. 8th

Player Pardon
To clear up the 'unbanning of all players' I wanted to tune you all in regarding what this actually means. I would like to let you all know that there is a player pardon for all players except the following:

- Players that have been punished recently (within 2 months)
- Players that have charged back (the ones that are still banned)
- Players that have caused issues in the past (you know who you are)


What does the new Sonic have in store?
Minor tweaks/additions
Bug fixes
New spawn
Re-worked economy
Re-worked crates + additional crates
Weekly updates
More island upgrades
and more major content releases.


WELL? WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE!
Here is just a bit of the spawn/warzone; featuring a playful touch to Sonic's origin.
