Greetings,

This is a reminder to all players and staff regarding bug reports and issues. If there is a game breaking bug or serious issue in game please PM me directly with as much detail as possible and I will do my best to get it resolved quickly. This is the best way to get bugs fixed as it doesn't have to go through a chain of command, and I do not mind when people PM me bugs directly, so please do not be afraid to contact me regarding this. To send me a PM you can click here and start the conversation. Any screenshots, videos, or detailed explanations of the bug as well as the server it is occurring in are very helpful.

Thanks.
Greetings,

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:

Greetings,

This post is to announce our 75% Off Christmas Sale that is now live in our webstore. Everything from ranks to keys is now 75% off and will remain so from today until a few days after Christmas. If you are unable to upgrade your rank because of purchase pre-EULA just send me a PM directly with your IGN and current rank so I can fix it for you.

Thanks and Merry Christmas!
Update: Maintenance complete as of 1:00 AM EST. Finished an hour early!

Greetings,

Just a brief announcement that the Factions server will have scheduled maintenance tonight from approximately 12 AM EST to 2 AM EST. During this time you will be unable to log into the server. Nothing with be lost, no roll back, and no reset. Just regular maintenance to the server.

Thanks.
Update: We are very close to finishing everything but it won't be ready today. I'm going to create a reset countdown timer and aim for 2 PM EST during our peak player count hours. Apologies for the inconvenience but I hope you're all hyped to see this reset we've put together!

Countdown timer!

Greetings,

Just a small announcement that the Prison reset has been delayed. We were hoping the build team (the second one...) would finish earlier, but they took a while to complete the project and we're just now getting everything set up. I'd rather take our time and do this properly than rush the reset out today and have a bunch of issues. I know this is frustrating for some of you and trust me, it is for me as well, but delaying the reset is the best course of action. We still hope to have the reset launched this weekend the only thing left to determine is if it will be Saturday or Sunday.

I will edit this post with an update once we get closer to finalizing everything with a countdown timer for the reset. Thank you for your patience and I hope you all enjoy this new reset :)

Thanks!
Update: The issue has been fixed. You should now receive ranks automatically for all future purchases.

Greetings,

Just a quick announcement to inform players that Buycraft has been having severe issues on their back end for a few days and we do not currently have any time estimation for when it will be fixed. This means that if you purchase a rank and do not receive it you will need to PM me and I will adjust it for you manually. I apologize for this inconvenience but there isn't much we can do on our end besides wait for Buycraft to fix their problems.

Thanks.

Greetings,

The beta for our Factions reset has gone smoothly and allowed us to find quite a few bugs and issues to correct before the final version is released tomorrow. Many thanks to the players that participated and sent reports to us so we were able to fix everything. Below you can find a countdown timer for the exact time we plan to launch the Season 1 reset. Currently I believe this time will be accurate, but there is always a small chance of delay so keep that in mind.

On this thread you will find information regarding the upcoming resets for both Factions and Prison. Please read the entire thread before commenting or asking questions below as it may already be answered.

Factions

The reset is set to go live on December 2nd, approximately 3 PM EST (8 PM GMT), but time is of course subject to change and is not guaranteed based on many variable factors. We will be having a Live Beta for the Factions reset from November 30th to December 1st lasting approximately 48 hours for players to get on the server, see what it's going to be like, and report any initial bugs / glitches / issues that they encounter. Note that the live beta is just a preview and will not count towards the full reset at all, and everything will be wiped after the beta period. We will then use the next day before the final reset to fix any of these issues and fully reset on December 2nd.

Here you can find a list of changes and important features for this reset:
  • Factions Tournament, $3000 Prize Pool, more information can be found here
  • 20 Chunk Wall Buffer rule has gone into effect; any rule breaking will get your base wiped
  • 30 players per Factions, 30 power per player
  • Overworld border set to 15k, End set to 4k, and Nether set to 4k
  • End world has flat bedrock at Y0 and end stone from Y1 to Y60
  • Entities passing the world border become void to prevent some glitch based raiding
  • Anti freecam protection added so players cannot freecam cegg easily
  • Top 5 Kills NPCs located at spawn
  • /f sell chest (new command that enables you to sell the contents of a chest while looking at it)
  • Bedrock durability set to 250
  • Voting, Premium, and Legendary keys have all been buffed appropriately
  • Lava now explodes to prevent wall regeneration defenses
  • Minecarts disabled
  • Nether portals disabled
  • Death tax removed
  • Alt accounts...
