With a brand new season of Factions Onyx comes a brand new spawn! Check it out below:
- This map of Onyx will be another Sugarcane, Fishing, Woodcutting alongside Silverfish (Mycelium) economy.
- As a result of the change in Faction and Roster size, Sugarcane’s sell price will be increased from $20 to $32.
- As well as this, Netherstar’s sell price will be increased from $10,000 to $15,000.
- The price to sell fish will also be increased to match Sugarcane in the Safe Lake.
- The sell price of Wood Logs will be increased from $475 to $750. The buy price of Wood Logs have also been increased as a result.
- The amount of money provided from holding the Raiding Outpost for 30 minutes will be increased to $130,000,000 during Grace and $65,000,000 during Raiding.
- The amount of grinding areas for Silverfish in the Mycelium World will be decreased to 5.
- We will be changing the rewards for the Raiding Outpost as a result of the faction and roster size changes.
- In an effort to prevent factions mining their spawners, the amount of spawner drops will be increased 1.5x along with the sell price of Blaze Rods increasing to $75 per blaze rod.
- We will be changing the cannon speed to 3 second cannoning everywhere.
- The chunk buffer size is now 15 chunks.
- We will not be allowing any sized source block ocean per side on our rule page.
- The length of Faction Shields has been increased to 18 hours.
- We will be disallowing Left & Right Shooting on bases as well as in other scenarios on our rule page.
- There is a new rule stating you cannot counter any cannon box from behind (commonly referred to as back countering) on our rule page. (Please view the rule for more information)
- We have decreased the amount of walls allowed on a cannon box to 24 walls unless it is a cannon box within your base buffer (in which case it’s the same limit as before).
- We will be changing our spawner leveling system to instead take 24 hours to upgrade 10% until it reaches 40%, where it will then take 2 hours to upgrade 10% until the maximum spawner value (of 100%) is reached - resulting in it taking 4.5 days to max out spawner value.
- We will be decreasing the faction sizes to 5.
- As a result, we will be increasing the power per player to 900.
- The Faction Roster Size will be reduced to 10 with 1 roster kick given each day with a maximum of 1 at any one time.
- We are disallowing Account Sharing and therefore will enable our plugin to limit the number of IPs allowed on an account in 24 hours.
- Faction Points will be given to the players in the faction roster at the end of the map.
- We will be decreasing the number of bans resulting in a strike to 2 on our rule page.
- For the Raid Event, if multiple factions have the same /F Top value then the order of these factions will be determined by who has more Potential Top value.
- The Reduce Damage Faction Missions will be nerfed to only provide a maximum of 15% less damage in your own faction land.
Thank you everyone for another amazing map, see you all at 3:00 PM EST on Saturday for the Onyx reset! Make sure that you keep updated with the rules and store changes as we progress through this season.
