As some of you may have noticed, our active player base has been declining lately. Fewer and fewer regular players have been on the server and there hasn't been much activity around the website. Donations have also fallen to nothing and when that happens we start paying out of our own pocket. If the community was thriving there would be more motivation to continue the services but unfortunately that's not the case. As a result we have decided to close down the servers and website.
Our servers will be shutting down on July 31st 2014.
A week later the website will be closing as well.
Our Teamspeak 3 server will remain at ts3.fiveguysgaming.com
During that week we will make the Tekkit World files available for download so you can continue playing in that world as a single player.
This seems to be the nature of Tekkit. Once you have completed everything it's tends to get a little stale so people move away from it. It seems to have hit a lull right now and the community is no longer sustainable.
We've had a great time running this community and enjoyed the relationships we have formed. Even though this part of Five Guys Gaming is closing, there are still some of us who continue to play other games. Steam is a great tool for staying in touch and I urge you, if you haven't already, to join the Five Guys Gaming steam community located at the following link http://steamcommunity.com/groups/fiveguysgaming.
Thank you all for being a part of this and hopefully we'll still see you around.
I would recommend the Xenon Tekkit server as a replacement. They seem to have a large community and good server. I may see some of you over there from time to time. Their Tekkit address is mc.xeongaming.co.uk
