New Spawn

With a new season comes a new spawn! Check it out below:

Raid Event Changes

After reviewing how the Raid Events work and seeing how effective and fun they are, we'll be making some changes to make it more enjoyable for everyone who participates in them.

  • The first change you’ll see this map is the introduction of factions being able to counter raid each other.
  • The /F Raid Warp GUI will now include a section where you can teleport to your cannon or the 3 counter cannons you may build.
  • Your counter cannons will have a box setup for you to build a cannon in.
  • Both the main cannons and your counter cannons will have 24 walls.
  • You will be able to place blocks and mine in your land & PvP in the entire world as usual.
  • In the Raid Event World, multiple factions are allowed to shoot at your cannon box and multiple factions can PvP at your cannon box. Raid Claims and Anti-Raid Claim rules do not apply.
  • As a result of making these changes, we will be buffing the reward for winning a Raid Event by giving out an additional Sharp 7 Sword, 2 Punch 4 Bow, 3 Protection 6 Unbreaking 6 God Sets & 32 Iron Golem Spawners.

Blackjack

Each player starts with 2 cards, and the goal is to either beat the dealers score, get 9 cards in your deck or get a Blackjack (21 points)!

You can play with up to 5 friends against the server or as a solo player. Players must place bets every round and the winner receives it all when the game is over.

Hit means that you want to pick up another card to add to your hand.

Stand means that you're happy with your current cards and don't wish to pick up any more. After you click stand, then the dealer will pick cards until they reach or pass 17 points.

Bet Conditions

If you hit a perfect Backjack, aka if your total points is 21, then the multiplier for the money won is 2.5x how much you bet. If you win but your total is not 21, then the multiplier for your the money won is 2x how much you bet.

If your deck's total matches the dealer's total, then you receive your money back.

If you fill up all 9 of your card slots and don't go over 21, then you automatically win the round, disregarding how close other players are to 21.

Mycelium Event

We will be adding a brand new Faction vs Faction Mycelium Event! Here's what you have to do to participate:

  • 150 minutes before TNT is enabled, all factions will have the option to participate in the event to win amazing rewards.
  • Everyone will have 5 minutes to join the event. When the timer ends, everyone who entered will be teleported within the inner Mycelium Citadel Region and everyone already within this region will be teleported out.
  • You can only use what’s in your inventory so ensure you bring everything you need!
  • After the event has begun players cannot join and will not be able to mine through the Citadel walls to get inside or to leave.
  • During this event, the current holder of the Mycelium Citadel will not change.
  • Once everyone is teleported into the event, the only way to leave is by dying. If you log out, you will be removed from the event. Whether you're in combat or not, you will die when you log out.
  • Players will need to slay the enemy factions until they are the last faction with players still in the event. The winners will be broadcast in chat for everyone to see!
  • Any remaining players in the event will be given 1 minute to gather as much loot as they can from the ground before they are teleported to spawn. Once the event is over, the Citadel will be usable again.
  • The winning faction will be able to claim their rewards similar to the Raid Event - it will be shown in chat to players who have access to claiming reward permissions - this can be controlled via the Faction Perms.
  • The winning faction will receive the following rewards - 2 Sharp 7 Swords, 2 Punch 4 Bows, 6 Protection 6 Unbreaking 6 Godsets, A Silverfish Spawner, 64 Iron Golem Spawners, 32 Creeper Spawners & 64 Blaze Spawners!

New Enchantment

Introducing a brand new custom enchantment - Cannon Breaker! This pickaxe only enchantment will allow users to break dispensers instantly!

Cannon Breaker will only have 1 tier. A must have for raiding!
