Festive Map Information

To celebrate the Amber New Year Map, for this map only, everyone will receive a rank equivalent to top rank and a kit containing Protection 6 Unbreaking 6 armor!

To ensure alts are not used to obtain a lot of these armor sets, you will be required to complete a small number of challenges in the /pass to obtain the rank and kit. Normal ranks, tags, disguises, monthly kits and custom ranks / kits will still be available to those that already have them, or purchase/obtain them in-game.

Regen Walls

We will be allowing certain types of regen walls in your base buffer as shown on our rule page. Take a look what is allowed in the upcoming season and be sure to keep up to date with the latest rules:

  • The use of Finnster Walls and/or Anti-Nuke Walls (which includes 45 degree walls) is allowed in your base buffer.
  • As well as this, the use of Finnster Walls and/or Anti-Nuke Walls (which includes 45 degree walls) and/or Regen walls is allowed as protection on cannon boxes.
  • Mid-airing is now allowed.
  • We will be limiting Filter regens to 1, Anti-one wide regens to 1 set of 3, and 45 regens to 1.
  • We are looking to change how our water mechanics work to ensure specific regens work in all scenarios on the server.
  • We will also be changing the Raid Event and RO bases to reflect these changes, ensuring that they are designed for the use of cannons aimed at infiltrating regens.

Additional Changes

Here are a number of miscellaneous changes:

  • We will be increasing the faction sizes to 15.
  • As a result, we will be decreasing the power per player to 300.
  • The economy will be another Mining alongside Mycelium and PvP Fishing one, with Sugarcane, Fishing and Woodcutting all alternative economy options.
  • The amount of money the holder of the Faction Outpost will make every 60 minutes during raiding will be reduced to $60,000,000.

We hope you're hyped for the upcoming map of Factions Amber! Thank you everyone for a great previous map, see look forward to seeing you all at 3:00 PM EST on Saturday for the Amber reset!
