Hey!

Haven't made a post in Announcements in a bit.
Archon will be going through many changes in the next few weeks.
Great updates, bug fixes, and more content for players to enjoy.
But to do this, we need you, the players, to help by letting us know the bugs for us to fix.

As Curtis recently mentioned in his post which can be found here, we have recently acquired two very skilled and talented developers who have done lots of great work for us including the redeveloped Spigot as well as other plugins. They will be at the forefront at bringing Archon back to its prime.

I've created a form here that will allow players to report any bugs on the server so that we can fix them promptly to help make sure you can play factions all the more smoother. Please ONLY report bugs with the server (this is not the form to report buycraft problems and suggestions), but in the near future, we will be pushing out updates to help players report transaction problems and suggestions a lot easier.

Please provide some sort of reference or explain the bug in detail, as only if the developers can truly understand the bug, will they be able to accurately fix them. Images should be submitted through imgur.com as an album or YouTube as a video. Also a space is provided to write up as much information as you can provide. One Bug should be entered per form submission.

Bug Reporting Form : https://goo.gl/forms/HTzx5JX5LqmOWdGU2

Also, if you don't follow Curtis or TheArchon on Twitter, we've also recently unveiled a quick look at the new website our team has been working on. This will be released very shortly along with many other great updates coming to TheArchon.

Thanks to everyone for sticking with us thus far.

Thanks,
Hydra
Hey,

So I figured I should make this post to give you a more insight on the new features that are coming.

Sell Wand & Disguises!

But first, I am happy to announce that we will be doing an exclusive 20% Easter sale. The sale will start 11:59PM EST Thursday the 13th of April. The sale will end at 11:59EST Saturday the 15th of April.

* Crate keys will not be on sale. We will be offering the crate key deal in replacement.

Webstore: store.thearchon.net

So, we're going to start with the Disguises!

Helpful Commands:

/d - Shows you what mob you're currently disguised as and reminders you about taking or receiving damage will undisguise you.

/d list - Lists all disguises that you have access to. You can click the disguise name rather than typing.

/d <mob> - Disguises you as that mob. You must have bought access via our website!

/ud - Removes your disguise.

Info:

You will be able to purchase certain Disguises on our webstore within the next 2 hours. We are just doing some final adjustments. Disguises will be available to use ingame for those who have already purchased them on Friday the 14th of April.

When you purchase a Disguise from the store, you only gain access to that one disguise you buy. So if you buy the "Zombie" disguise, then you will be able to do /d Zombie and boom, you will be disguised as a Zombie!

Yes, you can have access to more than 1 disguise! So if you feel like being a Zombie one day and a Creeper the next, that's fine! But these disguises are not able to be used to PvP. Once you take damage or give damage to another player you will be undisguised.

Did I forget to mention that Disguises will not knock enemies out of fly in their land? Yeah, you heard it correct. We wanted to implement our very own version of the popular "/f stealth" and we did that via Disguises! You can enter a Faction enemies land while they are in fly mode and they will not know a thing!

I hope this clears up some confusion and...

Hey,

It's been awhile since we did some updates and a reset so today I am bringing you both!

I am happy to announce that after many, many requests from both the community and Napkin we finally developed our own Disguises system to work with our backend.

Disguises will be released this Friday. They will currently only be available through the store, they will go on sale within the next 24 hours if you are interested in purchasing before they are released! Purchase them on our store: store.thearchon.net.

Anyway, onto the actual Disguises!

We will be offering the following Disguises on the store:

Zombie
Skeleton
Zombie Pigmen
Spider
Creeper
ChargedCreeper
Snowman
Villager
Pig
Cow
Chicken
Sheep

We will be adding ways to get exclusive ones such as Iron Golem, Baby Zombies, Endermen & Slime Disguises!

We would like to note that Disguises will not knock enemies out of fly if you are to be in disguise at their base, so watch out, if you randomly see a Cow climbing your walls, you know it's not normal..

* Enderman Disguises will look like they are teleporting around on 1.7 clients, this is only visual, they are not teleporting anywhere.

Now, onto Factions Aqua!

Napkin and I have spent some-what the best of the last week or so planning out the reset for Aqua. As you know, this server is owned by Napkin so all updates/changes are decided by him.

Napkin has decided to implement a brand new rank. The rank is named "Cod" and will cost $10 on the store.

With that being said, the kits & donator perks for the ranks on Aqua have been completely remade. Giving certain ranks guaranteed private vaults & more! We will publish the new kits and perks on our store within the next day or two.

This season will be a Buycraft Factions Top prize.

Prizes for winning Factions Top is as follows:

1st - $500 - Buycraft Voucher
2nd - $250 - Buycraft Voucher
3rd - $100 - Buycraft Voucher

As we have done previously, the owner of the winning Factions will...
Hey,

Today I am going to be announcing that this Thursday (30th of March) we will be officially closing down Factions Sapphire.

You will be allowed to transfer ranks & extra abilites (such as /fly, kits, /sell hand) to ALL Faction Servers except for Factions Amethyst.

BenMascott is allowing transfers to Factions Amber!

This is something that we have been debating for a long time and feel that we still need to cut down on the server count so we can fully focus on fixing our current issues before we consider expanding again.

Thanks,

Curtis.
UPDATE: We have found a complication with our map and have to fix it, pushed the scheduled release to 5:30 EST -- sorry for any inconvenience!

Hey,

First I would like to apologise for the lack of updates / announcements. We have a road map of ideas being developed and resets planned throughout the coming months.

In terms of Rushers videos, there will be something posted on his YouTube channel within the week.

Now, onto the actual post!

Today I am pleased to announce that Factions Silver & Factions Blue will have their resets this week.

Factions Silver - Will reset Friday @ 5:30PM EST

Countdown: http://itsalmo.st/#silver2

Factions Blue - Will reset Saturday @ 1:30PM EST

Countdown: http://itsalmo.st/#bluereset



We will be doing Buycraft F top for all Faction Servers.

The prize of F top will be as follows:

1st - $500 - Buycraft Voucher
2nd - $250 - Buycraft Voucher
3rd - $100 - Buycraft Voucher

The prizes will be given out at the end of the map, I will announce when I plan to take the final snapshot of the leaderboards in which we will work with to give the winners their Gift Cards.

As you may notice from the other resets & releases we have completely upgraded our system with a fresh new enchantment system, new factions system & more.

Here is a brief list of what will be added:

- Modified Mob Drops

(We plan to update the loot monthly)

We offer our builders free donator ranks and store items depending on activity.

All builders who go through the trial stage, will also receive a [Builder] rank which will show on /list and ingame on servers.

Hey,

Black reset is coming up in just a short amount of time. I am in the middle of finishing it all off now. I forgot to mention the following for the Black & Royal reset:

25 Maximum Faction Members
2 Allies
2 Truces
50 Player Power
20 day Alt kick
Duels WILL be added

Now, onto what this thread is about.. UPDATES!

We have been getting ALOT of requests of changes to certain things such as one hitting blazes and adding a new enchantment for harvesting crops.

Upon the next restart of Faction Amethyst I will be releasing TWO brand new Enchantments! They are both inside the "Legendary" tier.

Harvest - Legendary
Applies to Hoes only (Kappa)

Upon breaking Sugar Cane using a hoe the sugarcane will instantly go into your inventory rather than dropping on the floor. If your inventory is full it will then continue to drop on the floor.

Assassin - Legendary
Applies to Swords only

Alot of users are requesting away to grind Blazes faster. So we have decided to implement an Enchantment that will increase the amount of damage that you can do to Blazes.

With this, we have also decided to make a modification to our AuctionHouse system and have since implemented a section for the Enchantment Rune.

We have a nice roadmap of updates that we're discussing and planning to release throughout the coming weeks with the resets due.

There will be a huge announcement next week, you won't want to miss it.

Have a great weekend and I hope to see you on TheArchon!

Thanks,

Curtis.
Afternoon,

Today I am going to be announcing two resets to TheArchon. The servers have been pending a reset for quite awhile now as we're all aware the resets in December didn't exactly go to well. So today I am happy to announce that we begin our resets with Factions Black and Factions Royal!

Factions Black will reset Friday at around 5pm EST.

Factions Royal will reset Saturday at around 7pm GMT (UK time).

As promised in previous posts this chain of resets comes with a bunch of improvements. Optimisations, new Faction system & more!

One of the major announcements is that we will be doing a prize for Factions Top on ALL servers.

We will be doing Buycraft F top for all Faction Servers. Factions Amethyst has Cash Prize along with Buycraft prize!

The prize of F top will be as follows:

1st - $500 - Buycraft Voucher
2nd - $250 - Buycraft Voucher
3rd - $100 - Buycraft Voucher

The system is the same as Amethyst. We will be giving the voucher to the leader of the Faction once we take the snapchat of the f top leaderboards when the maps are coming close to planned resets.

With that, we are also bringing some fresh new changes to the servers.

- New Factions Plugin - Same as Amethyst.
There will be NO Faction Missions. But it will include f perms, f warps, f chest etc.

- Brand new KoTH System

- Envoy System

- Gen Buckets

- Mob Drops

We will also be adding Custom Enchantments again to the servers with the following Enchantments:

Blast, Obsidian Destroyer, Fish & Feast.

The following will NOT reset:

- Ranks
- Tags
- Crate key balances
- extra kits
- extra perks

The following WILL reset:

- Map contents
- All sethomes, balances & inventories
- Factions data
- chest, PV & enderchest data

We look forward to bringing you the new revamped version of TheArchon. We have been working hard on improving the quality of our servers.

I look forward to seeing you on Friday &...
Hey,

It's with regret that I have to announce that today TheArchon has had to part way with two of our longest staff members:

Snixerz & iZeroLogic.

We have a message from Snixerz:

We've had a great three years with The Archon. We love and appreciate every last one of you. I remember first entering The Archon 3 years ago - she was still the tiny little thing that I grew to openly love. Being apart of the staff team was a great opportunity. Never did I think I would become admin ! We def had a great time to beginning to end and it's time to move on. I thank you the community for being everything that The Archon is and also giving us the opportunity to be there for you guys when we could be. I personally would like to give a big Thank you to Coby and Rusher ! For entrusting me with a special position on the The Archon . The Dev Team for all they they do and build ! It was incredibly to watch these past couple of years. You won't see them often but trust me , they were def the pillars to The Archon. From My Little family to you guys , Thank you :) ! So - y'all can stop calling me mom now iight ?

And one from iZeroLogic
It was great being part of TheArchon. To be honest, this was our very first server that Snix and I played when we first started playing Minecraft online. We started from the bottom as players, donated some here and there, then we decided to be part of the staff team when we met with Dfield in Faction Blue. But it's about time that we retire our position.

Coby and Rusher, much love and thanks to you guys for giving us this opportunity to be part of the Admin Team. It's been a long time, but we will see you guys again on your next meet-ups xD. The rest of the Admin Team, take care guys it was fun working with you all.

Lastly our Staff Team, it was great getting to know alot of you guys, We will stay in touch and probably play some games on the side. You guys keep on excelling and helping out...
