Credits are the currency of Minecraft Central's Minigames server. They can be used to purchase items for Minigames.
Credits can be obtained in 3 ways. These are playing Minigames, donating and voting. Voting used to give the player 500 Credits in total, 125 Credits per each voting site. This feature was removed but readded in 18th June 2016. Nowadays voting gives you 4 Cosmetic Shards in Lobbies and 500 Credits. Credits could be earned through Treasure Chests, both from Voting Treasures and Ancient Treasures. This feature was removed in 1st April 2016 when the Cosmetic Treasures were added.
Players were able to purchase Credits from the webstore with real money for 2 days. This feature was added 10th June 2016 but was removed 12th June 2016. The packages players could buy were 10,000 Credits, 20,000 Credits, 35,000 Credits and 70,000 Credits.
Donator ranks give 100 Credits per every dollar spent. So a player who donates for Coal gets 500 Credits. If they upgraded to Iron, they'd get 500 more as they have donated for $10. You can't send Credits to another players.
Using the CreditsEdit
Credits can be used to buy items and abilities for Minigames. Merchants, located in front of the Minigames, sell various items. Credits obtained from playing the Minigames increase your level. Every 1,000 Credits you level up one level. Credits obtained by other means don't count.
Credits could be also used to buy Mounts. Nowadays you cannot buy Mounts with Credits, as they were removed.
