Hey!

Before I get into this update announcement I just wanted to take a quick moment to talk about how the resets went and the current state!

The resets went fantastic, apart from a few issues that @Exloki worked extremely hard and fast on patching I would go as far to say as that was one of the smoothest resets TheArchon has experienced as a network in terms of lag and major issues.

TNT has been delayed as many are aware. I personally apologise for this. We've been experiencing some lag issues, we are working extremely hard on optimising our servers and will announce when TNT is going to be enabled. We understand your frustrations but I'd rather we delay TNT to ensure cannons don't blow up after their first shot.

Now onto the post details!

50% Sale - 24 HOURS:

It is TIME for our annual SUMMER SALE.. Although summer is ALMOST over, it's never too late! Starting today at exactly 11:59 EST there will be a 50% sale on our store. The sale will last for exactly 24 hours.

For the first time ever we will also be putting Network Punishments and Transfers on sale. They will have a 25% sale applied to them for 24 hours.

You'll be able to take advantage of this sale from our store here - shop.thearchon.net

Shop Changes / Improvements:

We have heard your opinions on our current shop system so we're going to be rolling out a new shop system. Rather than the current /shop b and /shop s we are changing up to one complete GUI with the ability to purchase multiple stacks and sell a lot quicker.

[​IMG]

You can access the new in-game shop system simply by typing /shop. There is no need for /shop b and /shop s.

Special Kit:

It's time for the return of the legendary kit known as the Special kit.. This one of, if not the...
Good evening fellow Archon Community!

I'd like to address our first official post regarding events and what to expect leading up for this week. First and for most will be hosting events every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with occasional events happening on the weekdays.

Our first event was our Karaoke Event which happened yesterday. We had a peak of over 100+ users in that Discord channel with over 20+ singers. We are extremely grateful for everyone coming out and having a blast with us. Special congratulations go out to our winners for being phenomenal singers.

Here's the schedule for events this week:

Greetings,​

As many of you already know, Archon will be implementing screen-sharing for the first time going into next map. Already, many of you dislike the idea of staff being able to freeze you and get ahold of your computer. In order to ensure that The Archon network says cheater free and that our players are provided the best experience possible, we will do what we deem most appropriately.

Screen sharing will be done in the following manner:

  • Only hand selected staff will be allowed to screenshare you (Admins at this time)
  • Screenshares will be kept short and personal information will be avoided
  • You will never be screenshared without a valid reason
  • You will not be banned for just having cheats on your computer
  • Any 3rd party software that is being used in your current version of Minecraft will lead to a permanent ban from the server

Cheating does nothing but ruin the experience for other players. Please acknowledge that cheating on The Archon will not be taken lightly. Yes, we plan on being as fair as possible, but at the same time, we can ensure you that you will be banned for cheating.

More information you should know:

  • If banned, you may purchase a network unban on our store
  • Recording a screenshare will lead to a permanent ban
  • Administrators will have the final say on all punishments

Punishments will be handled out as followed:

  • Admitting to cheating: 30 day ban
  • Refusing to screen share: Permanent
  • Active cheats found in screen share: Permanent

We are looking forward to having a successful and cheater free map. Best of luck and will see you on reset.​

Hey,

Today I am happy to announce a couple of requested changes and additions.

Before I get into the updates I just wanted to make another note on the cannon patches. We've had them setup on our development area for the past couple of days. We've had some users tested and approved that they're at a incredibly improved place. We will be putting these patches on Oblivion for a live test. Cannon rules still apply.

We have listened to the community and have finally implemented away for you to upgrade your ranks if you've used your redeem balance. You now have two options when selecting the server you wish you use your redeem balance on:

[​IMG]

You will be able to upgrade from the current rank. Please note that you're required to have the previous rank. For example if I am the Janus rank on Kronos and want the Apollo rank, I need to have Janus applied to my account other wise it wont work.

Reminder: If you're short a couple of dollars, you can purchase extra redeem credit via our webstore.

We have gave out a decent quantity of Gift Cards so far. To users who have won f top, users who have reported game breaking duplications and bugs and for simply helping. But those users were unable to use their Gift Cards on anything besides ranks. So we will be allowing Gift Cards on the majority of our webstore apart from Redeem, Punishments & Crystals (crates).

The Gift Card changes will take effect within the next 24 hours.

We have added a request Discord channel named: "suggestions". We understand many users still use our forums but we want users to be active on both platforms. We have implemented this for users who do not have a forum account and prefer Discord.

If you're not connected to our Discord, you should be! I'm going to be doing some Gift Card giveaways over the next week to celebrate! You can join our Discord here:...
Hey,

I am finally announcing the upcoming reset for the Atlantis realm. After countless dupes and glitches, it's time to reset and announce the next map for Atlantis.

For those wondering this will be classed as "season two". Previously a new season = a new server. This is not the case anymore.

Atlantis will shut down on Thursday, 21st of June at 8pm EST.

Atlantis Map II will be releasing on the 23rd of June at 2pm EST which is 11am PST.

The current Atlantis map will be turned off and whitelisted at 8pm EST on Thursday!

Before we get started, I'd like to make a quick note:

The Kronos and Atlantis Final F-TOP payment will be paid out this week along with the first Oblivion prize!

Now, let's get into the information everybody is interested in!

Atlantis will run for a total of 5 weeks from the release date, 1 of which will be the graceperiod in which no prize is distributed. The F-TOP prize will be $5,000.

  3. $250 Giftcard
In order to receive your payouts your Faction leader must set their paypal with /setpaypal ingame. Do not change your Faction name to prevent the wrong Faction being paid out. In the result your Faction is DQ'd or disbanded we may deem your F-TOP payout to another Faction.
