    Welcome to Helios Gaming!

    Helios Gaming started as a dream between three individuals who wanted to build a different type of gaming community, one that had evolved from just Minecraft to include other types of games.

    Starting with just a few servers our hope is to provide a great gaming experience with a close knit community that keeps players coming back. Having fun and making friends with games that you love is our goal.

    We have big plans for the future but we are dedicated to making each addition perfect for our players to ensure your continued enjoyment. So join us on this journey to build an incredible environment for players to have fun met new people and make friends.

      We actually have 12 people registered right now, besides the staff I mean. Not a bad start for essentially a TTT server at this point. And we do not have a timeline just yet. We are only doing a soft opening at this point for our MC server but our TTT server is up and running already. I feel like next weekend we are going to start asking some people to test for us and if that goes well the weekend after that we would have our public opening. BUT don't hold me to that because we have not created a timeline yet. We want to make sure that if we do give you a date that we can live up to that. So for right now that is just an estimate.

      Forgive me for not knowing the terms, but what does a soft opening entail?

      Yeah Soft Opening means that we invite a "select clientele" to help us start the server up, check out any issues that might still need to be resolved, and basically see if when you play you break stuff. After that, and if you don't break anything to major, we would open to the general public. It's a chance to shake out any bugs or problems that we were not able to find when we tested the server.

      However, we will still be a beta server until we get everything we want in place. We are starting our beta server with just a couple servers and will grow as we are able to, making sure that things are done right. We want to make sure we can handle the stuff we have and that we can deliver on things when we promise them. The "other network" had so many issues when we started that we were never able to fix it all and move forward. All the time we had was spent trying to fix stuff. This time we want to spend our time making new game modes, adding new features, and making things better for our players, not fixing stuff that we did not break.

      Helios Gaming is all about over delivering, not over promising.

      We will be inviting people so you will get a message from the staff when it's time for us to do the soft opening.

      We are not affiliated with Shock Network. We are a separate gaming community. However if you have been so bad that another server has you globally banned it is quite likely that you will soon be banned here as well. Also this is NOT a haven for the hackers, cheaters, and toxic players to come. If we see such players disrupting our community we will ban them. This is a gaming community that is SAFE for ALL our players. If you can not abide by that then you are not welcome.
