Remake of the Prison server:

We made a new Prison server because the normal prison server now is very laggy and got alot of buggs.
The ingame ranks will be lost but the Donator ranks will stay.
We made a new spawn with alot of features and 53 ingame ranks or mines.
This server will open tonight!


We worked alot on the Buildwars server and it's almost finished!
I can't give alot of information about this one but i'm sure alot of people will like it.
This server will release this week or next week!


Mob-Arena will release after Buildwars but it's almost finished now.
We need a few more maps to release Mob-Arena.


I'll buy my new pc and setup next week so i can finaly start streaming on pika-network.
We'll make a crate program for all the donations on twitch but more information will come next week.
I will stream every week but i still need someone to help me with my twitch setup.

Server replacements:

I must still replace a few servers tonight but this will take only 1-6 hours.
This will help to fix little lag spikes.

Server update/ Discount Week 'Halloween'

Hello community,

Here are the updates for this week.

lag issues:

I worked 46h on pika-network without any sleep to transfer the servers
to the new host.
Most of the global lag is fixed. Opfactions needs a little work to reduce
the lag.
I did a reset on survival because this was a while ago and the server had almost 3M
files of playerdata.

Discount week: Code 'Halloween'

I will make a 30% discount week to compensate for the big lag
issues on pika-network this month.
The discount code is 'Halloween' and will expire November first [01/11/2015].
Enjoy the discount week

New servers:

The builders are still working on the new skywars3 maps but
this server will be online in a few days.

We are currently working on Mob-Arena so this server will be online next week.

I will start with the OpKitPvP server next week (Poll coming soon).
i'm not sure about the enchantments but i might make them protection 10+

Experienced staff:

We are currently searching for experienced staff to ban
the hackers on the pvp servers because we are getting alot of hackers
on the pika-network servers and trying to ban them all.
We have a total of 5000+ bans every month so that's alot.

That's it for this week,
I hope the server will start growing again!
Bought my new laptop today so i can start streaming rank giveaways
And events on pika-network.

I will remake the server this night so all the ping issues are fixed.
All the skins must be fixed tomorrow.
The server will be down for 1-3h in europe and max 12h in the US.
I'm trying to get the server back without the lag issues because it's very annoying.

so i hope this will work.

Looking for new Devs:

We are still looking for new developers so if your a developer please make an apply and show what you can do!

New server:

Server updates

Hello Community!

These are the new updates of the week:

Upgraded servers.

Almost every server is replaced to a new desktop.
We bought 7 new desktops (nodes) for the whole pika-network server!
I'm still working on a few things to improve the server.
The delays/lag are reduced by 80% on all the 1.7 servers.
The 1.8 servers are coming in 2 weeks.
pika-network is using 3 'servers' to connect the players to our lobbies.
We'll lose 1/3 from all the online connected players if one server is down.
We are currently building on the new skywars maps for skywars3.

New payment systems?

I will make a video how to donate with paysafecard, phone, credit card, ... next week
All the new payments will be added next month via paymentwall.
More information is coming soon about this.

I want to thank everyone for the good support.
Keep the support going and we'll get more servers soon enough!

Social Media + Server updates

Hello Community!

This are the updates we are working on.

New nodes:

The servers will be replaced to Netherland finaly!
What does it mean?
The ping will be better on the global server.
I invested alot of money in new nodes to make pika-network lag free!
We'll get more player slots and all the servers will be upgraded to more RAM.

New contact methods:


I made a skype account for pika-network to help you out with your problems.
We'll try to be 20h online everyday on our skype.

Skype name is: Pika.help (This is the public Skype account of pika-network)

Donation Skype (Paysafecard, Visa, Mastercard, Bank transfer, Ideal, ...)

I made another skype account to donate with paysafecard and other payments we are not supporting on the website.

I'm accepting paysafecard on that skype account so i can get my money back lost from the new nodes and upgrades.
It's always allowed to donate with other payment methods but i must find out how to use it. We are not supporting help on this skype account!

Skype name is: Pika.donate (This is the skype if you want to donate, no help support!)

New Teamspeak

we have a new teamspeak server with more member slots
ts3.pikacraft.eu the domein has just been linked can take a dew hour to take effect.
Donators have to be readded to their ranks.


I'll start streaming soon when i bought a new PC, router and webcam.
You can follow me on Twitch on this link: Link
I can use all the support to make it faster.
I will mainly use twitch to make rank giveaways, drop parties and events on pika-network.


Coming Soon!

Promoting new helper staffs:

I need a few more staffs to ban the hackers on our pvp servers.
If you don't know where to make an app go to this link: Link
I'm promoting around 10 new helpers but i'm asking skilled and experienced people to avoid false bans.

Server Updates!

Hello Pikacrafters!

Here is an update on the work we have done the past weeks and what is going to happen next week.

We have a new Op Faction 2! It is similar to the original OP Faction, the difference is this one has no Mcmmo and we've added /duel to this version. If 1.9 is a success in the future we might update one of the OP Factions to 1.9 and keep a classic one on 1.7.

The new SkyWars is also online! SkyWars now has two servers for players to enjoy without having trouble joining. We have also added new maps, check them out.

Kit-PvP has been reset! The version is back to 1.7. I hope everyone likes the map and enjoys the game.
Of course, in the future when 1.9 is out and plugins are updated we will switch to 1.9 on the Kit-PvP server.

It's time community, we are starting to work on NEW mini-game servers for Pika-Network! (more info will follow soon)

A new donator rank has been added to the Survival server, it's called Alchemist!
More information can be found here : Link

Vote Crates have also been added to Survival. For each vote every 24 hours, you will receive a vote key.
Premium Keys can be purchased in the Pika-Craft store. For more information in-game, type /buy.

For the staff part, we had some false bans the past weeks which we are working hard on to prevent.
We are setting up a training and test program for current/new staff members to be absolute familiar with hacks/violations. They will recognize, learn the difference in hacks and server lag glitches. The team apologizes for any previous troubles a staff member may have mistakenly caused, however we will improve and solve any issue brought up.

As for Donating to Pika-Network, right now we only have Paypal, which is through Buycraft. We will work on making a new system for Paysafe payments and more methods. However until then, Paysafe payments have to be done manually. Now you may have this question:
How do we donate with Paysafe? Contact dutchminerHD (Owner) through the Link contact feature and he will respond to you as soon as possible.

Hope you will enjoy the new and upcoming changes.

Have fun!

P.S. If you have any questions about upcoming updates or future plans, leave a comment and a staff member will answer with their best response. Thank you.

Searching for Builders

Hello Community!

We are currently working on some new servers and updates on the existing servers that will be explained soon in a News update.
At this moment we are searching for new builders for our server Build Team!
The build work exists out of making new spawns, lobbies and PvP arena's for our new server that we want to make. Do you think you have the quality of a builder and want to give it a try?
Then please fill in a staff application in the staff app section on the forums with the title Builder request.
Please state your name, age, language and country in the topic. Also please show some images or videos of builds you have done. If you tweak our interest you will be invited to take the builders test.

Hope to see you soon!

1.7 Server Overloads and Updates

Hello Community,

You guys might have noticed that there are a few issues in the 1.7 servers. There is a way to crash the 1.7 servers unfortunately. The 1.7 servers begin to crash sometimes because immature children are using a bug/exploit on our server. I'll try to make a plugin for this and try to resolve it as soon as possible. However it's hard to fix it because Mojang only fixed it for 1.8 and not for 1.7... The Op Factions server will now be named to ClassicOpFactions. I'm working on another Op Factions server to 1.8 so the players can have two servers to join without worrying about lag.

I made a small Q&A list:

- What will Yoeri create on Pika-Network in the future?

I'll make Hunger Games, TeamSkywars, Op Factions (1.8) and remake the Kit-PvP server, Mob-Arena and fix major bugs on all servers.

- Who is dutchminerHD?

I'm the new owner of Pika-Network! My name is Yoeri, I'm 18 years old and live in Belgium.

- What is Boris doing now?

Boris made a website for CS:GO because he likes to play counter strike.

- Are you hiring staff?

Yes. I'm always looking for new and suitable players for staff positions.
I also need a new Developer at the moment and of course new helpers.

- What is the Teamspeak 3 IP now?

The temporarily Teamspeak 3 IP is play.titancore-network.com.
The old Pika-Network IP will be up soon. (ts3.pikacraft.eu)

- How can I donate with paysafecard?

You can donate by contacting me on the 'Contact' button on the menu bar or private message me on the website or Skype. I'm currently busy with the setup of paysafecard and I need more time to fix the donation payment methods.

I hope those are all the questions for now. You may ask more questions in comments below and a staff member will answer them with their best response.

Yoeri - Owner of Pika-Network

19 July 2015 News     

Hello! I'm glad to be here!

Hello Community!

My name is Yoeri, in-game name is DutchminerHD, I am the new owner of Pika-Network.
As you already noticed there has been a lot of changes on Pika-Network and a lot more to come. I wanted to apologize for the recent problems Boris has caused throughout this incredible community. I am here to promise that this server will be up and running with new changes and improvements!
Many people ask me how i'm the owner from Pika-Network... I bought the server to make Pika-Network again better. Boris was busy with something else and almost never came online on pika-network so that's why he sold it to me.

Here are updates we will work on:

- Donations
If you want to donate with paysafecard please contact a staff or contact DutchminerHD because it's currently down but that will be fixed soon so i must do the paysafecards donations manual.

- Faction reset
This will happen tonight and the version will be brought back to 1.7.
As well as a new server spawn that the build team have worked on the past few days.
New custom Crates will also be added.

When Factions is done we are going to work on a new Kit-PvP!
For Kit-PvP the same changes will apply: 1.7 version, new spawn, new kits, and we will try to bring in /duel as well. But it requires some time to set this up.
For the rest of the servers we have already some fixed bugs and new better things will come.
- minecarts are now usable in Survival
- Mob Arena added to Survival.
- Bed explosion glitch on Creative is fixed.
- Lockette has been added on Skyblock Ice.
- OP Factions has been added to Pika-Network.
- OP Prison has been added to Pika-Network.
- Classic Skyblock has been added to Pika-Network (version 1.7-1.8)

Skyblock Ice and Survival will not be changed, however we will change the spawn.

Those are most of the things we will have improved/changed on Pika-Network. Of course issues will pop up in the future but we will fix or change them immediately.

I am very proud and honored to be the new owner of Pika-Network and make things better then before day by day. Thank you all, have fun.
