New PvP Arena



New Raid Event

Due to popular request, we have created an automated Raid Event which will be hosted on each individual factions realm. The raid event will be hosted on the following days of the week:

  • Saturday - 4PM EST
  • Sunday - 4PM EST
  • Tuesday - 4PM EST
  • Thursday - 4PM EST
    Note: This event will be hosted on weeks after the grace period is over

The top 4 factions on the realm at the time will be able to compete against one another for the prize. You can learn more and participate at the event by following the /f raid GUI.

When the event begins you can tp to your raidbox using /f raid warp. Make sure you have sufficient power to allow the server to automatically claim the cannon box for you. You will need to construct your cannon and use your own TNT for the event, following our regular cannon rules (unless stated otherwise in the raid event starting message)

Just like a normal raid event, you must race the other factions to breach the base quickly! The first faction to breach wins, and recieves their rewards automatically.

F Roster Changes

Faction Roster is our new interpretation of Force Invites, coming in effect this map.

You can view the list of members on your roster using /f roster list

You can add players to your roster using /f roster add {player} this command has no cooldown

You can remove players using /f roster remove {player}

Check the time until you get your next reemovable slot with /f roster invites

You will be able to check activity within your roster through /f logs

There will be an f permission for allowing people to modify the roster.

Onyx rosters will have unlimited slots to invite or remove.


Barring people within your roster will not allow that person to be rotated into your faction. This is not the same as removing a player from your roster as it will still take a slot within your roster list but will allow you to control the flow of people entering and reduce insiding incidents.

Do so by using /f ban {player}

Roster Ranks

Roster ranks are a way to assign faction roles to players automatically as they join in. Your can assign roster ranks to players using /f roster add {player} {rank}

You can also block certain players from being rotated out your faction by using /f roster lock {player}

Sword Enchant Changes

Over the past few weeks, we have been listening to feedback and adjusting the PVP custom enchants to make your PVP experience more enjoyable. This includes adding and removing some sword related enchants.

The Soul and Life enchants will be removed.
