Well... Our first map on GotPvP Factions 1.0 didn't go to plan at all. Issues with the jar, anti-cheat, memory leak and much more.
This isn't ok, and defiantly not what you guys deserve. To start off, i wanna personally apologise.. This entire ''revamp'' really decided what GotPvP can become, and it's down to me to make it as close to perfect as I can.
Factions itself wasn't just the issue it's been the entire server. I have completely reworked the staff team in hope to get active and helpful staff on the server. It's one of the main things we need. All staff will also now have a selected server or ''servers'' they wish to work on. Factions will have it's own personal team as not everyone is fit for Factions and that's fair enough. (Staff applications are open)
One of the main things I have found on the short time I have been here is I find myself doing all the jobs. Trying to manage staff, factions, skyblock, punishments, buycraft, and more. It's not very well structured and simply means I'm spending too much time trying to fix little things that others can do and not enough time on the server side of things. Admins will now have a set role that they will take care off rather than me trying to do it all.
I have looked over all server rules and polished them up. Removed some and added some, the was very outdated and had no real structure. It was a bad call removing a few of the rules on Factions regardless of how toxic it can be. If I have missed any that you think should be added or removed be sure to lmk.
Factions (Some changes wont be till next map)
The first complaints we got on the server was the custom enchants, the poison, curse and wither to be exact. It's not MY...
Well, as i'm sure most of you have seen the past week has not exactly gone as planned. We've had issues with a memory leaks causing the huge tps drops. Issues with kids phasing into bases and issues with the staff.
It's pretty clear to see things are simply not good enough and things need to change. I have decided to completely revamp the staff team. Factions will now have it's own personal staff team, it's not an easy game mode to staff and not everyone understands it, and it's just not going to work the way it is. With this we have also purchased an ss tool, all moderators and above will need to learn how to use the tool. Jr.mods will only be able to go up to moderator once they have passed the ''Test'' With the recent demotions the staff team has multiple slots. Apply now by clicking HERE We are looking for Factions and Skyblock staff nothing else.
We will be adding a new /fperm that will allow/disallow certain players to mine/place Spawners. In a hope to help prevent the never ending issues with insiding. As for the bugs reported in the last 3 days, the developer LST has been away for a couple days. I'm not a developer so unfortunately they simply wont be fixed till he is back.
As i'm sure most of you have seen Skyblock has gone from offline to 0 players, meaning yes we have started work. We are looking to release in 2-3 weeks max. More info on that coming soon!
As a reminder, tnt enables saturday 2pm est.
Well well well... Ladies and gentleman after all the weeks we have put into creating the best Factions experience we can, we are finally happy to announce we will be openings the official Factions 1.0 Map on the 15th, June, at 2pm EST.
Thank you all for waiting patiently, we know this has taken some time and we are sorry for that. We hope you guys love the changes and enjoy our first factions map! Please make sure you have read the rules for this factions map, you can find them HERE

Full Change Log
Global blacklist and bans...
Hey everyone, i know it's been some time since the last Update post there just wasn't much to update you on. First up, if you didn't already know LST will be our new dev.. You may also know him from Arkham his ign is Shoot. Many of you know but for those who don't we have decided to change up our plans for revamp, and release one server at a time starting with Factions. Yes, we will still be doing the 5 other game-modes.
Update Post #3
Update Post #3
Many of you have been asking about bans, yes all bans will reset. This will not include any chargeback bans or blacklists. You have also been asking about an ETA.. and no at the moment I don't have one.
if you guys have ANY questions or issues be sure to dm me!
Updated Post #2
Hey everyone! It's that time of week again for a little update. First up, as most of you have seen we got some new artwork.. Hope you guys like it.
Over the past week I have been updating the forums a little, cleaning up the perms and channels. You may have also seen everyone now has access to view staff applications. This is NOT a bug.. This is to allows everyone to comment feedback and give there opinions. You may have also noticed I have completely changed the applications Format, the old one was outdated and to many questions that can be asked in an interview. You can apply now, but applications wont be looked at for a couple weeks.
Discord has also gotten a few changes. The ''Memes'' room has been removed and combined with ''Banter'' I have also added Support Rooms, Simply join the ''Support Waiting Room'' and a staff member will move you into one of the 3 channels and help you with whatever you need. Xp has also been reset! The ranks are now the following Active 10, Discord Dweller 25, No Life 40.
GG to the 3 no life Virgins above ^
Creative and Survival?
Lots of you guys have been asking about the 2 game modes as I didn't mention them last week, There was some confusion within the head management about if we would reset Creative or not, we decided not to.. and we will simply just be releasing the map the same day as Factions, Skyblock and Prison. As for Survival we will be opening that around a week after the Revamp sorry to all the Survival nerds.
And as always, if you guys have ANY questions regarding the server or anything else be sure to dm me on discord!
Weekly Update #1
So instead of tagging the discord every day to give you guys updates, it's easier and better to start using the forums more. From now on every week I will make an update post with all the progress we have made towards the revamp, along with any news.
First up, what is going on with the revamp? Well.. as you all know the server was left alone for a good few months, and it's not really in the best way. So me and Chris decided the best thing for it would be a total revamp of the entire network. This includes resetting every server.
The hub is getting a total makeover with sexy new builds and some dope hub features. Skyblock will also be getting a total makeover, we have listened to your opinions so be ready for a blast from the past. Mostly everyone hated OP Prison so you will be pleased to know we have completely scrapped it and we will be going back to the OG Prison days. Creative and Survival will be making a return! More updates on that soon.
QNA I will answer some of the main questions here.
How long will this all take? Currently there is no ETA on the revamp, due to the vast amount there is to do we're looking at a minimum of 3 weeks.
Will bans reset? You hacking losers will be pleased to know they will! All bans, mutes and warnings will reset. This does not include chargebacks.
Whats going on with the staff team? You will see a drastic change within the team over the next few weeks. To start with, All staff ranks apart from helpers will be global. All staff managers will be in charge of a section of the server. Eg skyblock, factions, prison, creative and survival.
Who tf are you? My names James, most people call me Jelly. I've...
