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...

First, I really need a better way to start a post.. "Hey" is so basic, taking suggestions!

Anyway, I am going to be discussing the situation on the current Potion issues, additional Mob Drops and more!

But I think I would like to thank every single person who has joined and supported the release of Faction Amethyst. It is currently looking to be the biggest season ever in terms of connections & active players. We have put alot of time into this and don't think we're done yet.

As a little thank you we have extended our sale until Friday! So you can get 15% of Amethyst Ranks & Crate Keys on ALL servers until Friday! Get them at

Potions / Eating:

When we released Amethyst we had intended to make the season Potion PvP with a God Apple cooldown. We are still going to stick by this, but we are fully aware of the current issues with Potions not drinking properly, God Apples not being eaten correcting and Splash Potions being completely off. We have been deploying small updates and tests to the potions through out the weekend and still doing so until we find the suitable fix. So bare with us, we're aware and I promise you that we're working on fixing this issue as obviously it's a major part of the new season and the current servers so we have to make it perfect. The issue is not related to lag, Amethyst runs at around 20TPS at most times, it does drop. It's not perfect. We are working on the TPS drops too.

Mob Drops:

We have developed a new plugin to allow us to modify the drops of mobs. This will be released to Amethyst on Friday but will be also released to all current servers on their resets. I will list what mobs drop blow, so make sure to check it out! Please note that the drops are not everytime a mob drops. They are a small chance that way it is not super overpowered.

- 1 TNT

- 1 Emerald

Zombie Pigman:
- 1 IronIngot

- 1 Enderpearl
- 1 Fire Resistance...

Today I am going to be announcing the brand new Ultimate key that is going to be released along with a brand new hub system we've been developing. Oh, did I forget to mention a juicy exclusive 15% sale for Amethyst?

That's right. We are doing an EXCLUSIVE 15% sale on our store. The sale ONLY applies to ranks on Factions Amethyst along with Crate Keys. The Sale will last until Monday when Amethyst is open to the public. - Take advantage of this sale while you can!

I will get straight into this post and talk about the new Ultimate Key version.

This key will be instantly released on Factions Amethyst tonight. I will be deploying the release for all servers this weekend, but if you purchase Ultimate keys on the store, you can save them for when the new version is released!

Now, onto something many have seen in a preview and many are excited about! A brand new fresh, improved and requested Hub! Many "OG" players may remember this Hub, but we are delighted to bring back the "OG" Hub of TheArchon, many may remember when there was a video of a Factions War on this Hub! Anyway, let's get into it!

We have been developing what we like to call TheArchon v3. This has been something that we have been putting...
Surprise! You thought this was coming on Wednesday! ;)

Today we will be announcing the largest season that TheArchon has EVER seen. We have been developing this new season along with other features for our other Faction servers, you'll find out about those soon! The new season of Factions is called "Factions Amethyst"

Let's get right into this action packed announcement. I will start off by simply announcing the date and time along with information on the closed "beta" days!

Season 11 of Factions will start on Friday, 10th of February at around 4:30 EST. (Time is just an ETA. Could be delayed)

The server will not have a "Beta" fee. Donator ranks will have the ability to play on Faction Amethyst on Friday until Monday.

This means people with Donator ranks which will be avaliable on our store tomorrow (Wednesday) and you will be able to play for 2 whole days. So why not grab yourself a rank from our store and get a head start on that lovely cash prize! - Purchase Ranks, Tags, Keys & more here!

Now onto a small rundown of what is being added to the new season. More information on the features will be below if you want a more in depth sight!

I have been reviewing the way our network is run and have decided that we need to start cutting servers from our network for quite obvious reasons. We have too many servers compared to our player count and it has become a community request that we start to cut down on servers. I agree with this and have for quite some time.

So today I am announcing that on the 1st of February Factions Green will be closed down. People will be allowed to transfer their ranks, special kits, fly etc to any server on TheArchon network (You will NOT be able to transfer to the new season when released).

Green has been known as one of the 'OG' servers and it really is a shame to announce that this is what we have to do, but as request from the Green community, we feel this is the best for the network.

Hydra will be making an announcement later today about a new server we're going to be releasing (Not Factions or Mini-Games). This new server will help make things more enjoyable and allow for the staff to host more events for the community!

Content creators are vital for every server.
Players who record their perspectives and adventures on such a server.
Those who share their experiences with the community.

There are many content creators on TheArchon.
From small channels to larger channels, these players record, edit, and put time into their episodes.
And we'd like to give back to these hard working individuals.

The YouTube rank.
Something given to content creators, whether to make recording easier or some premium chat flair.
This rank has been something considered very coveted and "unachievable".

Because of this, the community expressed interest in another rank for content creators to earn.
After brief beta testing on Factions Aqua, players that met a few certain requirements were able to earn a [YT] Rank that consisted of a complimentary in-game rank and a special tag ingame.

Because of the success, we have decided to open up YT Rank Applications for the entire network.
Please note, in the future, these requirements may be increased or lowered. Also this rank is color specific.
Please submit applications by posting a thread in the section : YouTube Applications

Before applying for YT rank here at TheArchon
Please ensure your channel meets these requirements :
- At least 2500 subscribers
- At least 3 videos posted so far on specific color (within last month)
- An average of 750 views on each of the videos posted on specific color

Channel statistics (socialblade) are reviewed during application process.
Users who bot their channel in any way, will be banned from applying in the future.

When applying, please use the format below.

Applications will be reviewed by a Manager within a few days of submission.
Applicants who are denied, can reapply for this rank...

Today we will be announcing some additions and changes to TheArchon rules. This will include server rules and website rules as I feel a few things need to be addressed.

Let's get right into it:

The rules currently state that we do not allow swearing of any kind. Today we will be lifting this rule. Swearing will be allowed on our servers to a certain extent. We will NOT tolerate racial remarks, comments about peoples sexual orientation or any form of harassment.

* This rule change is ONLY on the server. Swearing is not tolerated on the website.

* To put this into basic words - you are now able to use words like "fuck" "bitch" etc. But you MUST NOT use these excessively. If you are reported or seen swearing excessively you WILL be warned which can lead to a tempban.

So just remember that the section regarding "Harassment & Disrespect" in the rules section still stands and WILL always stand. We are going to be more stricter and punishing harder for those who break these rules.

We are also addressing the recent Pixel art on bases issues. We have seen a few bases with offensive images build in Pixel art on their bases. This is not tolerated and can lead to your Faction being disbanded.

You are NOT allowed to put images of racial, sexual or anything that is against the chat rules into pixel art. This also includes pictures of people from real life, although it's cool that you're able to do that we do not allow it and we will act accordingly when found doing so.

If you find a base abusing this, take screenshots with proof and we will get it removed.

Website Rules:

Now, I have noticed that the forums have gone, uhh, a little sour. We use the forums for interacting with the community, getting feedback and just having fun. The current status of the forums is not something I personally enjoy coming on. I come on here to look for any posts about issues, suggestions or just general chat about TheArchon.

The forums...
Important Updates
I am glad to be announcing some new oncoming updates and changes to the server!

To begin with, we are currently in the process of redeveloping the Koth System, and how it works.

Alongside it, we are also thinking of changing how the reward system works. We would love to have some community feedback on what you guys would love as win for rewards.

We want our Koth System to be more enjoyable and worth the time you put into it. With the new Koth System, the difficulty will be increased, but the rewards will be worth the difficulty and the effort that you put into it.

This new system should be applied starting with the new season, and will be deployed globally to the other servers when they are to be reset.

Napkin has made a thread asking for suggestions on the most perfect server, please feel free to give any of your suggestions! I will be going through them and suggesting them to the other admins/owners for discussion.
Lastly, Curtis will be finishing the moves of all remaining servers throughout this week, so, there will be some downtime during then.
Thank You! More updates coming soon! :)

As some of you may know, I'm one of the new Managers on TheArchon.
The Manager position has multiple roles and other than receiving feedback from the community and driving ideas to improve the server, I will also be continuing several roles I have been filling for the past few months.

About Me :

Most of the community, I would think, has not heard about me.
I'm not exactly a vocal person on the forums or in-game, so for those that don't know me, I'm Hydra.
I've been playing TheArchon since Cyan and for the past few months, have been helping on certain server aspects - mainly relating to the recent server resets.

Current Agendas :

Along with helping with the setup of next season's server, I will also be assisting with the hosting of a multitude of different types of server events - whether server wars, raid events, pvp tournaments, and other types to keep the community both competitive and also fun for every player.

Things like this and other community based competitions are a few of the things I will be working on and introducing in the incoming weeks, so lookout for threads in your respective Faction Color subforums and even in this Announcements section for details.

Other than that, if you have any interesting ideas, suggestions that you would like to see on TheArchon, or bugs on the server, be sure to let me know about it and I'll pass it on for discussion.
