Greetings,

Our in game /adshop has been wildly popular so far, and we hope to continue seeing growth and success through this platform. As such we have made quite a few updates recently and I'd like to highlight some of them below.

  • Limit increase - You can now watch up to 500 ads per day per account
  • More rewards - You now receive 1 token + 1 vote key (per 50 views), so you can earn up to 500 tokens and 10 extra vote keys per day with ease. Just set up an auto refreshing extension in your web browser and load your ad link on a 95 second refresh timer
  • More /adshop items - Added GTA ranks and weapons, Prison plots, and Skyblock island expansions
  • Better stat tracking - Improved statistic tracking and weekly automated rewards
  • Price reduction - We have lowered the prices of all items in the /adshop to make them more accessible

Do keep in mind that if you own multiple accounts you can watch ads on all of them. Just go in game on each account, grab the ad link for that account, and load it into your browser.
Greetings,

This week's change log contains only a few updates as we've been working hard to get Faction's ready for the upcoming reset. The Faction's reset is currently planned for March 3rd around 6 PM EST. There is also an update coming for the Skyblock server that will feature a full reset, and we hope to have it done around the same time, but as always we expect some delays so I will post more information on that when we have it.

Factions
  • Brewing stands can now be exploded
  • Brewing stands now allow sand stacking
  • Enderman spawners added to /f top valuation
  • Fixed BossEggs not giving keys
  • Wilderness restore has been fixed and confirmed working
  • Faction's relations are now fixed and have the proper limits
Prison
  • Can now block players from renting mines with /mine block <player> and /mine unblock <player>, also shows blocked players in /mine info
  • Fixed blocks to auto inventory in the player mines
Oppvp
  • Fixed top guild NPC's at spawn
Creative
  • The old creative server will be shut down at the end of February, please move your builds to the new server
Cannon
  • Fixed gamemode 3
  • Added 1.11.2 support
  • Can no longer go below Y0
  • Disabled potions
  • Limited /flyspeed

As I said this change log isn't very large as we have two major resets coming up soon and have been working on those with all our efforts. Expect to see some awesome changes for our Season 2 Faction's map and the upcoming Skyblock revamp as well.

Note: No alternative Faction or Faction member that used another Faction's land, items, money, etc will be eligible for top rewards. You will not bypass this and you will not be able to argue that you obtained that wealth on your own. So if that is your plan to sneak into the top 5 or to create an alternate Faction I suggest you abandon that idea now as we have been keeping track the entire season.

Thanks.
Update: System is being rolled live today. You can read more about it by clicking here.

Greetings,

Quite recently it has become popular to offer players free ranks, keys, and other items via token purchase on many server networks. Tokens are obtained by watching short advertisement videos, and are a great system for players that cannot afford to purchase with real money. Essentially we have partnered with an advertising company called Playwire that is now popular among some of the top networks, and we will soon have a system in place for you to purchase anything on our web store via tokens, for free, just by watching some advertisement videos.

Would you guys be interested in this system? We plan to implement it in the next couple of days and run some beta tests. There will be a few simple steps to how this works:
  • Use a command in game to receive your personalized advertisement link
  • Open the link in your web browser and view the advertisement
  • Once the advertisement is complete your account will receive 1 token per video
  • You can then open the in game shop and spend your tokens on the desired items
There will also be a fairly sophisticated web panel where you can track your statistics for the system. So you will be able to view how many advertisements you've watched, how many tokens you've earned, how many tokens you've spent, and a complete transaction history for everything purchased through the token system.

As I currently understand it the platform has some limits in place to prevent user abuse, and each account is limited to approximately 100-150 views per day. Note that I said account, not IP, as the system is based off of UUID for Minecraft accounts. This means that if you have alternate accounts you can view more advertisements per day by using multiple UUID links. There is also a 60 second cool down timer between...
Greetings,

The Creative server update went pretty smoothly so far, but we still have a few bugs to iron out with permissions settings and a few things that are missing. As a whole though the server is up and running well. Note that we still have the /oldcreative server online which you can access via the Hub, and a thread has been posted showing you exactly how to move your plot from the old server to the new one, which you can read here. Just follow those instructions step by step and you will have your plot on the new server!

A few features of the new server include the following:

  • New spawn
  • Fancy new roads
  • Updated Spigot to 1.11
  • Updated all plugins to latest versions
  • Updated and fixed /disguise plugin
  • Updated PlotSquared and added /plot download
  • Updated /trails and /emotes plugin as well as other cosmetics
  • Plots are now 200 x 200, double the size of the previous map
  • Plot merge command should now be working properly for all players
As previously stated there are still a few bugs to iron out, but please just report them to moderators or admins in game and we will get them taken care of over the next couple of days.

Thanks and enjoy!

This post is to announce a 70% Off Winter Sale that just went live, as well as a few server updates and news regarding upcoming resets. Many players requested the sale bump back up a little so we will leave it here for the time being so you can all enjoy the perks at lower prices.

As for the servers many of you are aware that Factions has grown massively popular this reset, peaking at 265 players online earlier today, and with that came a lot of lag. We have finally patched the lag after weeks of effort and can proudly say the server is now running perfectly even with these high player counts.

For future updates I don't want to give much away, but I will say that the Creative server is next in line for a revamp, and more details will be posted on that soon. I hope to have the Creative update finished in a couple of weeks at most.

I'd also like to thank everyone for reaching our highest player counts in about a year this weekend. Across the network we have been consistently hitting over 1000 players online, and as I type this we just hit a record we haven't touched in quite some time:
