I joined Mystic about a month after it opened (about 2 and a half years ago), and boy, it has been one heck of a ride. I have gotten to experience Mystic's growth first hand. I saw Mystic improve and expand continuously, always driven by the goal of making the best experience for the players. As others have stated, bending configuration is always in the works to ensure everything is balanced. On top of that, staff are constantly working to implement new plugins and solve any problems players may encounter (or create) to improve player experience. I got to witness Mystic expand from a single server to a much larger one with multiple servers connected through bungee to further minimize lag, especially helping bending. Through all of this it has become very clear to me why Mystic was able to expand and grow so much as it has, and that is by the true dedication to the server the owner (Traced_) and many other staff members share. I knew Traced_ before Mystic existed, and I have seen how committed she has been all throughout the progress of her server. She and many other staff members work so hard (for some like if it is a second job), to make sure everything is as perfect as it can be for players. Every day that I spend on Mystic I am amazed at how far it has come and how the community strives to be unique by implementing new and fun things like our minigame server, bending survival games, and the token system. I would highly encourage players to stop in, whether it's slimefun, arenas, towny or factions, surely Mystic has something that every player will enjoy.
