@OreoKirby - there was no formal announcement (that I can find) but citation is hardly needed, heres the link to the old MineStrike forum if you want to look: http://www.brawl.com/forums/186/
@CloBunny - Apparently the player-base was to low so they took down the servers. The irony is that people had just started getting excited about MineStrike becoming popular and where even organising a Tourney.
Tbh, I play the Hypixel version nowadays but the community isn't the same.
I might get CS:GO b/c the MC version is a little lacking - anyone else play it / wants to add me on Steam??
