New Spawn

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

Summer Map

To celebrate the Onyx Summer 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 small number of challenges in the /ArchonPass 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 those who will purchase them or obtain them in-game.

Raid Wars Event

Introducing a brand new event to the upcoming summer map of Onyx. The Raid Wars Event allows only the top 6 Factions on /f ptop to enter. During this event, 2 factions will be teleported into a new world with pre-made cannon boxes and kits. The aim of the event is to shoot at your enemy faction's cannon box and try to breach them before they breach you.

All 20 members of your faction can enter the event, but if one member dies they will be unable to re-enter. Each faction participating will be given a certain amount of TNT to use in your cannons, and if the TNT runs out then whichever faction is the deepest into their enemy’s walls will win, thus progressing onto the next round.

Only 2 factions will be able to participate at a time, and once their Raid War is complete, 2 new factions will have a go, and so on. This event is a tournament bracket-style, so the 6 factions will battle it out until there is only 1 winner.

Rule Changes

There have been a few changes to some existing rules on Factions for the upcoming season. Be sure to stay up to date with the rule changes so you don't accidentally get caught out, here.

Rule 28
You will be allowed a 1 chunk source block ocean per side of your base as shown on our rule page. Water bucketing will be disallowed completely.

Note: If factions are not getting raided and there is a distinct lack of raiding activity, the ocean will be removed 1 to 2 days into TNT being enabled, if deemed necessary by the Senior Staff Team.

Rule 24
We will be updating this rule to have the minimum base size being 3x3 chunks, and the maximum being 6x6 chunks.

Rule 34
Your base shell must be within a maximum of 3 chunks off of the world border. (added to rule 34).

Rule 10
For every 4 permanent bans a faction acquires, they will be given a faction strike.

Summer Dungeon

The sun is shining and the temperature is ramping up, so it's time to dig out your bathing suit and sunglasses, and head on down to the beach! To celebrate the summer season arriving at last, we have released the limited-time Summer Dungeon on Factions!

The limited-time Summer Dungeon will be available all summer from now until September 18th so raid one while you can! You can find the Summer Credit Bundle in the Dungeon section on shop.thearchon.net. Find out more about the Summer Dungeon below:

Summer Beach Bag 2022
Hey everyone! The sun is shining and the temperature is ramping up, so it’s time to dig out your bathing suit and sunglasses, and head on down to the beach! To celebrate the summer season arriving at last, we are releasing the limited-time Summer Beach Bag crate on every realm!

Additional Information

Last but not least, here is some miscellaneous information:

  • We will be running a Mining, Woodcutting, and Fishing economy alongside Mycelium (Silverfish).
  • We will be increasing the faction sizes to 20. As a result, power per player will decrease to 250 per player.
  • Faction shields are being lowered to 14 hours.
  • The amount of faction bans needed for a strike is being raised from 2 to 4 due to the faction size increase.
  • The cannon speed will be 2 second cannoning for bases (Including Raid Event and Raiding-Outpost) and 3 second cannoning for countering.
  • Wilderness fly, printable gens, and bow boosting will all be disabled.
  • Mob Battles will be temporarily disabled in the /arcade.
  • We will be removing the 15% damage reduction in faction claims mission, and instead will be buffing damage overall.

Thank you everyone for another amazing map, see you all at 3:00 PM EDT on Saturday for the Onyx reset!
