Greetings,

The reset is live! I'd like to go over a few of the server details with you so you're all aware of the new features, and give some instruction on how to report bugs / issues in this new update.

New Features

  • Dollars removed, coins are new the currency
  • Coins are a global currency and are shared with our mini games and hub
  • If you have a rank in Kitpvp now they are global across all of our other servers
  • You can collect daily / monthly coin rewards to be spent in any mini game (including Kitpvp) at the voting villager in the hub
  • The coins you earn from the hub treasure chests apply to Kitpvp and all other mini games
  • Guilds - New guild system. Any player can join a guild but only those with a rank can create one
  • Creating a guild costs 5000 coins
  • Guilds can be expanded from 5 slots to 10 slots with a cost of 10000 coins
  • Top Guilds are displayed at spawn with their NPCs very similar to Factions Top plugin
  • New Kits have been added, check /kit
  • New GUI based shop instead of signs, check /shop

Bug Reports

You can provide bug reports by either sending me a PM directly over the forums or posting them in the comments below. Please be aware that saying things like "x is broken" is not even remotely helpful. We need details to fix any issues that arise and the more detail you give us the faster it will be fixed. We appreciate your insight and suggestions greatly so feel free to make general comments as well. Hope you all enjoy the reset and Oppvp should be coming today as well (with custom enchants ;))

Thanks.
Greetings,

I just wanted to make a quick announcement informing those waiting that the Kitpvp / Oppvp resets will be delayed another day or two. I apologize for these issues and I know you are all impatient to see what we have in store, but I promise it will be worth the wait as we iron out these final details and polish the code. We want to make sure the launch is flawless and not rushed live just to have errors and break down.

Also for the Factions crashes / restarts today -- we are aware of the issue, we are working on it, and expect Factions to be frequently restarted for the rest of the day. We are currently patching the problem but it requires quite a few restarts to test the code on each update. Apologies for these issues and please bare with us as we resolve them once and for all.

Thanks.
Greetings,

Survival will be enduring a full reset within the next few weeks. An exact date has not been chosen but expect it to be around the end of July or the first week of August. We've put quite a bit of work into this reset, new builds, new plugins, and many changes to our current setup to bring you what we believe will be the best Survival reset we've ever had. See the changes and notes below to get a better understanding of what is to come.

  • New spawn area has been built including the majority of “official” survival builds
  • Introducing the AreaShop plugin, for renting/selling regions
    Introducing the AuctionHouse plugin, currently on Factions if you wish to check it out with /ah
  • Added /warp SpawnTown - Which is a medium sized community with some rental shops, streets, and other more
  • Added /warp marketplace - A player based market (similar to the old /warp market) located within the spawn region; it will be using AreaShop, and allow for the rent time to be extended along with auto-clearing after it expires
  • Introducing /warp job - This will be a large location in which all players will have access to multiple mines, farms, and locations to sell specific items
  • Introducing ‘Job Ranks’ - These are essentially in game ranks based off of the economy. There will be 10 ranks total. Your in game rank will determine which mines/farms you have access to utilize at the job area. However, all sell areas will be available to everyone without restriction, allowing all players to sell items to the server. This is by no means the only way to earn money, there are public markets, /rg tp’s, public exp farms, etc
  • Added “a road to the wilderness” located off of the west side of spawn in which players can walk on a short path to the wilderness. There is also /warp wild and /wilderness for your convenience.
  • The ‘/warp shop’ will only be for purchasing items, not for selling. Selling to the server will be done at /warp job (In which has a wide...
Greetings,

Please read through the entire log before posting questions below. Also I would appreciate some honest feedback from the community regarding their opinion of these weekly posts; the change logs take quite a bit of effort and time to compile, so if the members really appreciate them and want to keep seeing them that would encourage us to continue.

Greetings,

I just wanted to take a moment to quickly announce that we are having a 40% off sale in our web store for the summer. I do not have a specific date for when the sale will end, and it could end early, but we want to give back to our community for supporting us through these difficult times and many users have requested a larger sale. Now that the Rank Quests are live and our new system is stable I believe it is an appropriate time to launch a huge sale for our players to enjoy.

Important: If you are attempting to upgrade any of your existing ranks and the store says you cannot purchase the item you must send me a PM with your IGN and current rank, and I will fix the issue for you manually.

Thanks.
Greetings,

Rank Quests are now live in our store which can be found here. This post is going to teach you about Rank Quests, how to use them, and what exactly they do. Please read the entire post before asking questions in the thread below. I will ignore you if you ask a question that was answered in this thread, and probably roast you as well.

What are Rank Quests?

Rank Quests are a EULA compliant way to obtain our old Legacy Ranks (Noble through Deity) that have all of the old perks and kits that were in the original ranks. Many large networks and EULA compliant servers have begun implementing this method of selling ranks once Mojang approved it, and due to the large demand for a way to obtain permanent Legacy Ranks, we have decided to add them as well.

How do I obtain a Rank Quest?

Rank Quests must be purchased via the webstore at http://buy.gotpvp.com -- You can select them by going into the Menu, then Ranks, then Legacy Ranks. You will then pick the server you wish to receive your Rank Quest on, and then you will choose which Rank Quest you want to purchase, and the price will change accordingly based on the rank you want.

What happens when I purchase a Rank Quest?

When you purchase a Rank Quest you must be online and you will receive a piece of paper in your inventory. You then have to survive for a specified amount of time. If you are holding the piece of paper when the timer runs out you will be given the appropriate rank for the Rank Quest that you purchased. However, be aware this is a global event in order for it to be EULA compliant, so there is a chance that someone could kill you and take the quest item from you. If someone is able to kill you and they have the paper when the timer runs out they will be the ones to receive the rank. If you drop the paper or exit the PVP zone you will have to restart the quest from the beginning.

How much do...
Greetings,

This week's change log contains mostly changes for Factions and global updates for all servers. We are making progress on the Kitpvp update and I would say we are approximately 75% complete. We will try our hardest to have the updated ready by the end of the month but as you all know programming is a whimsical trade, and delays often happen. That being said the change log is much smaller for this week compared to last week as that one contained a few weeks worth of changes for the month. I don't want you guys to think we are making less progress than usual simply because this list is smaller, as that is not the case.

Factions
  • Creeper spawners now get dropped when mining if you have the permission
  • Auction House temporarily disabled due to an exploit
  • TNT Minecarts no longer destroy blocks to patch easy portal raiding
  • /f top updated further with some fixes and optimizations
  • /f fly no longer randomly kills players
  • /tntfill is now working for all ranks
  • Runes and custom enchantments enabled. We picked 11 to add so far that aren't very gameplay impacting
  • Runes now drop from mob's -- they are quite rare though so they will be expensive and time consuming to obtain
  • 2000 x 2000 World Border added to the End

Kitpvp / Oppvp

  • Update is still in progress -- New map is ready and setup is approximately 75% complete

Global

  • /nick and colored nicks added to Challenger+ ranks
  • /delhome permissions fixed across a few servers
  • Buycraft tab added for duels and miscellaneous updates to the information displayed
  • FatKid enabled and back online. Skywars and HG fixed as well
  • Voting page at http://vote.gotpvp.com/ is now fixed and shows the top leaders of each month

In addition to these changes I would like to mention that Rank Quests will be added to our store soon at http://buy.gotpvp.com/ -- rank quests are essentially a EULA...
Greetings,

In our efforts to better communicate with our players I have decided to start posting change logs on a weekly basis. A change log is basically a log of what has been fixed / changed on the server in terms of bugs, development, and other issues. I will also include information about upcoming changes such as resets / updates for new servers. If this is something you like please comment below in the thread so we can get a better feel for community feedback. We believe this will better show the progress we are making and keep more players informed about what is happening in the day to day behind the scenes of GotPvP.

The main focus the past week has been fixing Faction bugs since the reset occurred, so that will be the bulk of this change log. Future change logs will most likely focus one server at a time as that's how we tend to do things.

Factions
  • The nether now spawns fortresses
  • /pstack changed to /potionstack and is working properly
  • Mob drop issues from AntiLootSteal fixed
  • Multiple /sethome permission issues for ranks fixed
  • Enderpearling outside the worldborder now instantly kills players
  • Command delays for various ranks fixed
  • /sellall added with most items (still adding to it expect completion soon)
  • You can now enemy, ally, truce and neutral factions
  • Premium keys buffed slightly with a super rare drop added
  • Premium keys bug patched and Players/Factions that abused banned/wiped
  • /f top now gets spawners in claimed land, faction bank, and faction members personal balances
  • TNT now gets removed above block Y 256 to patch roof raiding
  • Trade plugin added use /trade command same as last reset
  • NPCs to show off the top factions have been added to spawn
  • Sponges now have been reverted to 1.7 and also absorb lava
