This Season's Changes
Due to this season of Factions Ruby being very different to our previous seasons, a lot of changes have been made to accommodate the map length. Here's some information on the changes that you can expect to see this season.
- We will be changing our Spawner percentage system this season. As a result, Spawners will gain 10% of their maximum /F Top Value every 8 hours until they reach 60%, then they will gain 10% of their maximum /F Top Value every 6 hours. This means it will take 3 days for your Spawners to have their maximum /F Top Value.
- The amount of TNT dropped by Creepers will be increased to average 2.5 drops per Creeper (previously 1). The difference in % for the TNT to drop between Grace and Raiding will remain.
- Emeralds, Blaze Rods, Gold Ingots and Iron Ingots will all sell for 2.5x their current sell price.
- This map of Ruby will be a Cactus economy alongside Silverfish (Mycelium).
- There will be a limit of 32 Cactus Chests limiting you to 800 chunks of Cactus.
- You'll be required to buy the Cactus Chests from /shop to collect Cactus in a 5x5 chunk area like usual.
- To ensure Cactus is not used after grace, Cactus Chests will stop collecting cactus when Grace is over like usual.
- Cactus will sell for $2.
- Netherstars will sell for $6,000.
- Sugarcane will sell for $15.
- The price of fish will be buffed to match Sugarcane.
- We have stated Left Shooting on bases will not be allowed.
- Stated Raid Claims can have a maximum size of 12 + base size x 12 + base size on our rules page.
- Stated Anti Raid Claims can have a maximum size of 12 x 12 on our rules page.
Free Top Rank
For one 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 lots of these armor sets, you will be required to complete small challenges in the /pass to obtain the rank and kit. Normal ranks, tags, disguises, monthly kits & custom ranks / kits will still be available to those that already have them, either by purchase or obtaining in-game.
- /F missions will cost less and will be more obtainable.
- The amount of Boss, Deity & Koth keys will be buffed.
- The timings in /grace will be modified to fit the new schedule.
- The scheduled times for Raid Events will be changed.
- The prizes for the Raid and FvF events will be changed.
- The prizes for the Raiding Outpost will be changed and will be given out in shorter time periods, however it will be rewarding for the players attempting to capture it.
- The requirements to obtain a maxed Fish Sword, Mega Rod and maxed Harvester Hoe will be reduced.
Thank you everyone for another amazing map, see you all at 3:00 PM EST on Saturday for the reset!
