    Hey Heroes,

    Factions Nature, Time, and Dream will be resetting this week on the 16th (Friday) @ 4pm EST. Click Here For Countdown

    Over the next couple days we’ll be updating all of the wiki’s with new information to keep you up-to-date. For now, here’s what we’ve been up to since the last reset!

    This seasons winners will be chosen tomorrow Thursday, February 15th at 1 p.m. EST.


    Paypal Prize
    To increase competition, the team has decided to reintroduce a Paypal prize for the top factions at the end of the season. The way prizes will be divided is as follows,

    Factions Time:
    • Ftop1 = $300 + $150 Buycraft
    • Ftop2 = $150 + $100 Buycraft
    • Ftop3 = $75 + $50 Buycraft
    Factions Nature + OPFactions Dream:
    Since these are our less competitive faction servers, the Paypal prize will only be for Ftop1.
    • Ftop1 = $100 + $100 Buycraft
    We’re also trying something a little different this map too. During the grace period on all factions servers insiding will be disallowed, after the grace period it will be allowed.


    Boss Mobs
    Along with insiding being disallowed during the grace period, we’ve added a new feature that we think you’ll love. We have implemented Boss Eggs! To introduce everyone slowly to this new element, only the executioner boss in varying difficulties will be available. Don’t be unalarmed however, as these bosses are meant to be team centered and fought with your faction due to their strength. The rewards will constantly be improved, but here’s a sneak peak at a few of them so far.

    [​IMG]
    With rewards ranging from Iron golem spawners, to Burst 2 pickaxes, we’re sure the boss eggs will be thoroughly enjoyed. As of now, there is only two ways of obtaining these boss eggs, supply crates or crates, however this may be expanded upon in the future.


    New Enchants
    Along with Boss Eggs, we've also created some new custom enchants for factions and globally!

    Recall (All Armor - Legendary)
    • When struck, the player has a % chance that the armor will actually increase in durability rather than decrease. Almost like time is being reversed.
    Nightmare (Helmet - Legendary)
    • When your helmet breaks, everyone in a close proximity will be thrown back a considerable amount of blocks in a shockwave, and be applied a dizzy/nausea effect. This gives the player time to pearl/regenerate/soup.
    Glass Breaker (Any Tool - Rare)
    • Breaks glass instantly , can be applied to any tool
    ObbyHaste
    • Gives you haste levels when mining Obsidian
    Along with the new enchants we’ve made, we're introducing a new system to get OP gear!

    Enchant Relics
    Enchant relics modify how many custom enchants can be put on an item. Every time you combine a enchant relic with a tool/item, the max amount of enchantments the item can hold increases by one. Different ranks will have a max amount of times the items can be increased. The default for now is a max of two per item/tool.

    [​IMG]

    You can find relics in supply crates in the warzone or part of boss mob rewards!


    Other Adjustments
    Furthermore, we’ve also made various minor additions and adjustments to the current factions experience. Most of these changes were based upon community feedback which we heavily value. If you’d like to have your say in the future, be sure to leave suggestion here.

    • With the rise in popular demand, factions can no longer mine spawners when an enemy is within 50 blocks of the player. This is to improve your chances of having a successful raid.
    • [​IMG]
    • We’ve increased the Dragon Egg bonus to 10% over 5%, which should make it a much more desirable item.
    • We’ve added a new option to our /f upgrade feature; You can now use it to upgrade speed one and two and will be able to use it in your faction claims only.
    • Sell wands will now have a glowing aura. (Like an enchanted item.)
    • /Kills is now represented by a KDR instead of just kills.
    • We’ve removed gift boxes due to some abuse of hiding items etc.
    • Made /f join not spammable.
    • Disabled friendly fire at KOTH.
    • Added regular hardened clay to the shop.
    • Genbuckets will no longer go outside of the 1.8 border.
    • Creeper egg price changed from 25k -> 35k.
    • Gapple price changed from 25k -> 45k.
    • Added moss cobblestone + Red sandstone.
    • Cactus sell price lowered from 210 -> 110.
    • Rose sugarcane price from 260 -> 330.
    • Blaze spawner lowered by 50k.
    • Villager spawner increased by 50k.
    • Zombie pigman spawner increased by 125k.
    • Iron golem spawner increased by 500k.
    • Buy price of gold blocks and equivalent dramatically increased to match buy price of gapples to make pigman spawners relevant.
    • Iron ingot sell price lowered from 20 -> 15.
    • Apple price changed from $10 per 1 to $200 per 1.
    • Sell price of gunpowder lowered from 64 -> 48.
    • Blocked pistons from pushing sugarcane.
    • Max TNT drop chance lowered from 30% to 5%.
    • Added tntfill f perm.
    • Added new tntfill plugin that includes filling/unfilling dispensers with factions support.
    • Added new limit command to tntfill plugin, The TNT in the dispeners will not go past the amount specified in this command, This allows players to limit how much TNT might be in dispensers so that there won’t be uneven amounts in every dispenser.
    • Added tnt vaults to factions | /f tnt <withdraw/deposit/bal> <amount> | Works alongside the new tnt fill plugin, you don’t need TNT in your inventory anymore if you have TNT in your vault.
    • You can no longer mine un-graced spawners if an enemy/neutral player is 50 blocks near you.
    • You will no longer get stuck in blocks if your head or feet is showing, this also fixes issues with enderpearls and or genbuckets getting players stuck.
    • Fixed not being able to blow up watered trap doors/doors with creepers.
    • Fixed TNT always dropping spawners.
    • Lowered monthly kit to prot 1.
    • Fixed tracking issue where players are sometimes invisible and still able to hit you
    • Tripled render range at which you see players.
    • Added speed 1 & 2 potion type to the f upgrade menu.
    • Added confirmation message to /f unclaimall.
    • Lowered the price at which spawners are valued from the shop when silk touching from 10% -> 5% due to economy changes

    We hope you all thoroughly enjoy this reset and look forward to reading your feedback in the comments below.

    *When you see a stack of diamond and emerald blocks in crates and think to yourself whether Factions is slowly becoming a violent Skyblock server*

    The boss eggs sound so intriguing though. I may play Factions just for that

    Monthly kit was being used by everyone on reset day by 10 alts each to get dubs of p4 unb3 on the first day, thus we drastically lowered it's value.

    With creeper spawners it will be a lower chance for the creepers to drop ready to go TNT.

    TNT Plugin sounds cool and may make raiding more interesting. Also the mining spawners range will add a significant play into factions raiding. +1

    The balance changes seem necessary although most are debuffs. They help keep it competitive so one team doesn't raise over the others. +1

    New enchants, finally pvp enchants! Sounds interesting and may work? +1

    Lowering Monthly kit... I am guessing prot 1 refers to prot 7-10 on Opfactions. This does not seem to work on regular factions or op in my opinion. -1

    Dragon Egg... I think the edit will make the first month very competitive. Maybe adding a system to show location of dragon egg like /heroicitems would be unique and make it more important to protect. Overall interesting changes. +1

    /f join spam disabled... thanks so much... @1AI not to name names +1

    Lastly, price changes for spawners seem necessary since all of the spawners listed seemed too cheap and easy to obtain after a few months. Expecting long season! +1

    A lot asked for paypal prize, but I would honestly prefer $300 buycraft rather than $100 paypal. -1 ... but gl to Mars folks!

    Rest of it seems good or unimportant for now! Good luck to factions next map! +1111111111

    I think kit monthly should be restored as it is the only kit thats helps new people when they join to survival, i do understand the alt farming of the kit but maybe disable them for the first week or restore them back to p4unb3 after a month?
