Greetings everyone, the newest season of Factions Amber is here!Realm InformationThe next Amber map will release on Saturday June 6th @ 3:00 PM EST/6:00 AM AEST/8:00 PM BST
Today we are happy to announce that on Saturday June 6th 2PM EST / 4:00 AM AEST / 7:00 PM BST TheArchon will be resetting the Outlands 2X gamemode!
We'd like to thank you all again for your constant support for the Outlands realms, we appreciate you taking the time to give us your feedback and suggestions to help improve the gamemode. Without further ado, let's get into the reset content!
Outlands 1x Features
We will be introducing all the recent modifications that were added to Outlands 1X on the next Outlands 2X wipe. That includes a new brand map, new cities, two new guns, craft charges for specific recipes, StatTrak system and other features.
If you haven't seen all of the new features yet, check them out here.
We listened to the feedback that we received during the last 1X map and we'll be making the following changes:
- Homemade Explosives will not affect T2 Blocks anymore - we are returning the T2 protection to how it was previously (Only C4 damage).
- All armor will have their defense increased by 40%, rarities will be easier to find for everything except Kevlar equipment. Also, Kevlar common and uncommon items will be 2x easier to obtain (crafting, supply drop, barrels, etc), however, the chance to obtain a Kevlar rare, legendary or mythic items will be harder to get by 2x.
- The chance to get armor and guns with rarity in Special and Unknown Supply Drops will be higher than finding it in crates or radioactive barrels.
Center Biome Division
We've made few changes to the center biome - it will now contain a new division straight down the middle with farm decorations on one side and titanium piles on the other. The mob spawn rate on the farm side is two times higher than the old Farm City. The titanium ore rate is almost equivalent to the 3x the titanium ore that's found in mining caves. The halves are marked with bridges that lead straight to the Oil Rig.
In addition to the new crafting charges that were added to the recipes system, we have added a special shop dedicated to recipes! Almost all the recipes that you can find while looting will be included in this shop, and the only thing you will need to purchase them is... playtime!
Recipes will now be sold on the Season Shop, so stay online to boost your Outlands progress!
The center biome will now have mysterious Mythic Altars that players will need to dominate for a certain amount of time to win special items! Be sure to prepare your clans and capture the Mythic Altars to receive rewards!
The server performance has been further improved after lots of time has been spent working on optimization, allowing the Outlands 1x to support up to 450 concurrent players.
As well as this, we will apply dozens of fixes for various issues that were recently identified. A changelog with all the fixes will be posted soon on #changelogs channel on TheArchon Discord. We also frequently update the changelogs throughout the seasons with changes and fixes so be sure that you keep up to date with them. Stay tuned and don't forget to invite your friends to play Outlands 2X on Saturday June 6th at 2 PM EST!
Free PvP Kit
During the next few days, any players on Outlands 2x will receive a PvP + Building kit for FREE as a thank you for playing on the server. This Kit will contain guns, equipment, blocks and also few C4 explosives, so be sure to join and have some fun practicing your building, raiding & PvP skills before the wipe! These kits will not be available after the wipe so use them while you can.
