What is DeathZot?
• DeathZot was originally an 8.0 server that was created by 'Admin Death'. While DeathZot was not his only server he created, he is also responsible for creating the original OTChaos (7.6), Rise of Abbadon (8.10~). DeathZot was made shortly after OT Chaos began to die out. The core aspects of DeathZot that made it such a great server were: fast paced RPG, team hunting, heavily involved community trading, working towards equipment, gear progression, custom vocations, challenging areas and 'rebirthing'.

Why The Restoration Project v2?
• Last year I hosted a restored version of DeathZot that I updated from 8.0 to 8.60. Considering that DeathZot 8.60 was my first server I really had no idea what I was doing or getting myself into. I developed a lot of that server without thinking into the future - which down the line led to a lot of problems. I never expected DeathZot to be as popular as it was - sometimes reaching amounts of 200 + people online. I got distracted with real life (job, going to school) and the server eventually died out.
What's New This Time?
• For starters one of the biggest problems on working on DeathZot was trying to run the entire project myself. I never understood how much time it takes to develop and continue to work on a server by yourself until I started doing it. It also became very overwhelming trying to push out updates every week because people were progressing through the server extremely fast. Going into DeathZot 8.60 (v2) I'm more prepared because now there's three members on the team: Xagul (Scripter), Snuggles (Mapper), and myself. Knowing how DeathZot turned out last time infinity prepared me for version 2 of DeathZot.
How Can I Help?
• If we're going to make this version of DeathZot better than the last, we need your help. Let us know exactly what you did or did not like in DeathZot v1. Let us know what you would have liked to see more of, or what you think we could add to make the server better. This server is not being developed for us to play, we're developing it for you. So please let us know how we can make the server better!
