Mineplex was not on the brink of collapse. I'm not sure if you know this but immortal has existed since late 2016. It wasn't called immortal until February of this year, but has existed for awhile now. Immortal wasn't introduced to save the server from shutting down, or some made up assumption. Also immortal is not the only thing making Mineplex money, you have to remember there are other ranks. Though Hero, Legend, and Titan, probably aren't making a ton of money, plenty of people buy Eternal. Eternal is still a very popular rank, and I see plenty of people buying it. The other ranks probably aren't making too much compared to Eternal and Immortal, but they are also still making money. Also, you can't forget game amplifiers are also making money. This on its own would probably be enough to keep Mineplex going, but there is one thing I did not mention, Mineplex Bedrock. Bedrock has 3x times the players Java has, meaning that a lot more people are buying ranks and amplifiers on Bedrock. Also, the Mineplex is constantly making skin packs for the marketplace, so it is also making money from that. I'm sick of hearing these made up stories about how Mineplex is struggling, and barely has any money. I can't say for sure what Mineplex's financial situation is, but from the evidence I have given, it's unlikely that Mineplex will be shutting down anytime soon. In the future, I advise doing some research before jumping to the conclusion the only thing funding Mineplex is immortal, and I would be very surprised if Mineplex did not have enough money for a clans dev, considering they are currently looking for developers.
