So the poll currently states 50% want 1.9 now, and 25% wanted a new map with it (when I made the poll over a month ago). That's 75% for 1.9 and then 25% who want to stay 1.8.
However, 1.9 definitely brings some serious changes to gameplay.. and those people who voted to stay 1.8 have a valid point. In addition to the mechanics of PVP being much much different -- some of the plugins we have long relied on may cease to function in 1.9. Take McMMO for example. In any event, I'm currently building a 1.9 version to test out and see how much of the original Phobos we can bring over.
One thought I had would be to keep 1.8 as a "classic" server and then start a new 1.9 server -- but I really feel that will split players up too much.
So for now -- I am inching towards updating. Will post more once I have a test server put together. 1.9 is really fun once you get used to the updated mechanics.
