MineHeroes Team
Upcoming Factions and OPFactions Reset
We will be resetting Factions and OPFactions this Friday (06-OCT-2017) at 4PM EST.
(Count down timer: http://itsalmo.st/#fac&opfac-reset)

As per usual, resets consist of data and progress wipes such as faction data, player balance, mcmmo data, claims, items, inventories and so forth. Paid perks such as kits, ranks will remain.

Our focus for this reset was to touch up and perfect existing features and build on them. We ran polls in game for any game changing suggestions such as gapple cool-downs, shorter tnt grace periods and learnt that the majority of our players like the servers as they are and don't want to see such big changes made.

LAST MINUTE CHANGES (4-OCT-2017)
Thanks for the feedback, we have made some exciting last minute developments just in time for the reset!
  • FTOP Prizes:
    • 1st Month:
      • Dragon Egg to the Top Faction (1st Place) (This gives you a 5% sell boost)
    • End of Map:
      • 1st Place: $300 Buycraft Voucher to the Faction Leader + [TopFaction] Tag to each faction member.
      • 2nd Place: $250 Buycraft Voucher to the Faction Leader

Nexus has been completely revamped and is back and better than ever. Since Nexus was released, there has been an overwhelming response for continuous updates and improvements.

Instead of two teams, Nexus now pits four teams against each other. Each team now has their own quarter of the map where they can gather resources and build defenses. Destroy other team’s nexuses and knock them out while defending your own. Work together and play as many unique classes to achieve your objective. Destroy or be destroyed!

Phases

Nexus is split into 5 phases which adjust gameplay. On our old version of Nexus, this was previously 4 however we felt adding another phase could be a great way to stop games lasting a lifetime. The phases are split as follows:

Phase 1: Nexus blocks are invincible. Crossing to enemy sides of the map imposes negative consequences.
Phase 2: Nexus blocks lose their invincibility. You can now cross freely to enemy sectors of the map without being nerfed.
Phase 3: Diamond ores can now be mined at the middle of the map. The potion category of the shop is now available.
Phase 4: Nexuses will now receive double damage every hit. Blaze powder is added to potion shop.
Phase 5: Any Nexuses alive will have 1HP removed every 10 seconds until they are 1HP. A player is required to knock out a team by getting the final hit.

The game will stop at phase 5 and stay there until the game is over.

Classes

We’ve reworked all of the classes - including dropping a few and introducing new ones. Furthermore, we are introducing a new currency which will expand across future minigames, Credits. This currency will be local to every new minigame, meaning you’ll have different credit amounts on different games. Changes to each class are specified below:

Civilian (Free): This is our default class, unlocked for everyone. It provides the basic...
Announcement 3.9.1 | Welcome Back
On the 17th of September 2017, an account with administrative privileges was comprised and abused to delete forum threads, email some users, copy a list of our emails and cause some damage in game. Our staff were quick to respond to the situation and we were able to prevent any further damage from happening and restored the game servers to their normal state.

The forums on the other hand was simply my fault. To restore a backed up database you have to delete the existing database (in this case the griefed forums) and then replace it with the backup database. As I was unzipping our huge backup, I went ahead and deleted the existing forums database and to my surprise, everything was backed up except the forums. We have multiple backups but they all skipped on backing up the forums database for some reason. We then had no forums and have since been remaking it.

What was hacked?
  • An account with FULL permission access to the website/server
What did the hackers do?
  • Deleted forum threads and announcements
  • Mass emailed some users advertising their website/service
  • Copied a list of about 52,000 emails from our forums database
What does this mean and should you be worried?
As mentioned above, the hackers do not have any passwords, only a copy of the emails used to sign up to the forums. However, the problem is that since people use the same emails and password for other web services, if one web service has leaked account and password information, it becomes easier to hack into accounts from other web services.

We encourage you to change passwords to websites that store sensitive data (like emails, Minecraft, Skype, Discord etc). We also encourage looking into 2FA (a second step/layer of protection on top of your password, e.g sending a text to your phone or a code...
