My doors and fences are not working properly
Doors and fences have issues on 1.13 clients, I recommend running an 1.12 client
I can not craft or place a certain item
Some servers are running 1.8.8, these servers do not have the newer items, we are working on updating every server to 1.12.2 soon. Survival and Creative are already running 1.12.2
I am getting kicked for flying
If you are using minecraft 1.13 please change your minecraft version to 1.12, 1.13 has some issues with certain blocks

Some newer minecraft clients have problems with soups in KitPvP. If you are experiencing problems please switch your client version to 1.8.8 for the best possible experience in KitPvP.
