    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
        • 3rd Place: $200 Buycraft Voucher to the Faction Leader
        • 4th Place: $150 Buycraft Voucher to the Faction Leader
        • 5th Place: $100 Buycraft Voucher to the Faction Leader
    • Printer will be enabled on Factions Mars an OPFactions! (So all our faction servers will now support the schematic printer feature)
    • Economy Changes:
      • Sugarcane SELL value buffed slightly
      • Cactus SELL value reduced slightly
      • Added cobblestone, stone, sand and glass to raid section
      • Added BULK buy option for VIP ranks. Shift + click to bulk buy from the /shop
      • [​IMG]
    • Obsidian changed back to 4 TnT durablity:
      • [​IMG]
    • Coin-flip max daily limit increased to 5 and max amount to $1 mill ($10 mill on OPFAC)
    • Fixed bug with OPFaction players losing Faction Fly when they vote even though they have permanent faction fly.
    • Removed the new feature that denies mining spawners within 100 blocks of an enemy faction
    • Removed the feature that makes you wait 5 minutes before spawners spawn mobs after placing spawners because it was confusing for new players.
    Also, I will probably turn off the Faction/OPFaction servers 24 hours before the reset so I can apply all these changes and make sure everything is working. See you on Friday!

    ===============================
    Reset Change-log:
    • 3 new upgradeable Mob Spawners and custom mob drops added

    Global Kits Return
    At long last, Global Kits or /gkits have been re-enabled again. If you previously purchased a global kit, you can run the command /gkit to view, preview and access them. (Currently disabled on Factions/OPFactions due to it resetting soon)

    [​IMG]

    Global Kits are limited edition bundles of items, tools and gear that are only available during seasonal periods such as Halloween and Christmas. They will be available for sale for a short time and not again until the following year, however this time they will be enabled forever but on a global cool-down.

    These current Global Kits and cool-downs are as follows:

    • VALENTINE = 6 Weeks Cool-down
    • EASTER = 10 Weeks Cool-down
    • SUMMER = 10 Weeks Cool-down
    • HALLOWEEN = 6 Weeks Cool-down
    • CHRISTMAS = 4 Weeks Cool-down
    You can preview /gkits by right clicking the kit icon in the kit menu.
    The next Global Kit that will be available for sale is the Halloween Global Kit sometime this October.

    If you have access issues to your Global Kit, please post a purchase support ticket here

    • You cannot mine spawners within 100 blocks of an enemy faction
      • This prevents mining spawners when you're being raided
    Should change that a little bit. If someone is just starting to build a cannon and nobody can stay on at night you won't be able to mine spawners down if one of them just stand on your base

    yeah great job, barely any updates and even a worse downgrade from f top rewards at the start of the map, losing a ton of players because of this because really with no f top rewards WHY PLAY? might as well go to archon or somethings where u can get rewards for working hard. Very very stupid decision from whoever worked on zues reset if anyone. also id like to add that maybe it should be changed because zues seems to have a average of 30 players with f top rewards (very little) Just think about it Mineheores!

    I'm not tryna sound rude or anything but I don't see anything new or that will attract more just see a bunch of config changes honestly. It's just little things being improved.
