With a new season comes a new spawn! Check it the awesome new design below:
As well as the new spawn, we've added a brand new Arena build. Take a look!
Faction Roster Changes
The Faction Roster Size will now be unlimited and there will be no limit on the number of kicks that are allowed.
As a result of this change, we will be decreasing the Faction Shield from 10 hours to 8 hours. Additionally, we will be allowing Account Sharing and therefore will not enable our plugin to limit the number of IPs allowed on an account in 24 hours. Lastly, we will only be giving Faction Points to the players in the faction (this does not mean Roster) at the end of the map.
Custom Enchantment Tinker
Introducing the brand new Custom Enchantment Tinker! You can say goodbye to all the useless enchantment books that you have just laying around your base and PVs - hand in your unwanted books to the Tinker and re-roll for new ones!
Access the Tinker via /tinker and place 3 books in the menu to re-roll for a new book. You'll receive a random book just like the normal custom enchantment purchase section in /enchant however you will not need to spend EXP, just 3 unwanted books instead!
Daily FFA Event
We will be adding a daily Free For All Event. This new event will occur throughout the day with different kits. To encourage PvP, killing players will result in gaining splash potions and armor durability, and not fighting players will result in receiving the Poison potion effect. The rewards for the FFA event will be worth the time spent there and will be displayed in /FFA.
- /F chest is another command that can be used instead of /f vault. Both will lead to the same place.
- The time until you can start shooting TNT in the Raid Event will be reduced from 10 minutes to 2 minutes.
- When your Faction Member is AFK, this will be shown in /f status.
- We will be increasing the maximum allowed bet in Blackjack.
- To ensure that players do not accidentally mine their spawners and destroy them, if they do not have a rank or a silk-touch pickaxe, then a message will be displayed to them explaining that they cannot mine the spawner. As well as this, when you attempt to mine the spawner, the spawner will not break and instead will be intact.
- The world and coordinates of your Faction Warps will now be shown when you hover over the Faction Warp in the /f warp menu.
- When looking at the Player Leaderboards or Faction Leaderboards in /stats, we will also display your own personal stats information in that category to allow you to compare yourself to other players on the server.
Thank you everyone for another amazing map, see you all at 3:00 PM EST on Saturday for the Onyx reset!
