Changelog
The most important features/modifications implemented towards this season's map and functions are the following.
๐Ÿ†Payouts! Faction Top Rewards

This will go on until the end of the season which will last exactly 5 weeks or 35 days and end with the final payout.

๐Ÿ˜‡ Limited purchases during the grace
These spawners can be purchased from the /shop. However, during the Grace Period, you will need to unlock these spawners yourself first by grinding out that spawner. This makes you consider grinding in the Darkzone, and adds a whole new level of excitement, will you grind in peace to get higher up during the grace period, or will you hop in the Dark Zone for action?
๐Ÿ—บ๏ธ Updated! Worlds

But what's Factions without its diverse worlds?
For this release of this new season, we have decided to scale down to 3 worlds, instead of 4.
The overworld will be your vanilla-generated world, while all the other 2 worlds are flat worlds, ready for you to step into the base-building action.
โ˜๏ธ A faithful 1.8 world height
Each world will have a Y level of 0, so not the -64 from other versions, the Y level is now also limited to 256, like back in the 1.8 days.
This makes it easier to hop on and play,

๐Ÿ“ƒ There will be a total of 12 corners, these being the following:
๐ŸŒ Overworld
๐Ÿ”ฎ The End
๐Ÿค˜ The Underworld
To enter this world head to /spawn.
To enter this world head to /warp end.
To enter this world head to
/warp underworld.
๐Ÿ“œThe border will be 10,000 x 10,000 (5,000 to -5,000)
๐Ÿ“œThe border will be 6,500 x 6,500 (3,250 to -3,250)
๐Ÿ“œ The border will be 6,500 x 6,500 (3,250 to -3,250)
๐Ÿ›๏ธ The spawn will be in the middle of the border.
๐Ÿ›๏ธ The spawn will be in the middle of the border.
๐Ÿ›๏ธ The spawn will be in the middle of the border.
โ›ฐ๏ธ There are 4 KOTHs, located North, East, South, and West of spawn.
โ›ฐ๏ธ There is 1 KOTH near the world spawn.
โ›ฐ๏ธ There is 1 Outpost near the world spawn.
๐Ÿ’€ New! Darkzone Bosses
The Darkzone is getting more exciting with four new bosses coming. Each boss has special attacks that make them tough to beat.
Players will need to use smart strategies and skills to defeat them.
๐Ÿ† A great trophy for an awesome battle.
When a boss is defeated, the three players who did the most damage get a special prize: a new boss loot bag.
This bag has valuable items inside. This makes fighting the bosses not just fun but also rewarding. It encourages players to work together and try their best to be one of the top three who defeat these tough bosses.
๐Ÿฏ New! Super KOTH
The Darkzone is about to get even more competitive with the introduction of the Super KOTH event, which will take place once a week.
This event is a big deal for players because the winning faction will receive a huge loot bag filled with amazing rewards.
The Super KOTH is designed to bring together players in a battle for dominance, where teamwork and strategy play key roles in securing victory.
The reward for winning is highly coveted, containing items that can significantly boost a faction's power and resources.
This weekly event promises to be a highlight for players, offering not just intense competition but also the chance to win some of the best rewards available in the game.
๐Ÿ’ฃ New! Raid Recaps

Say hello to our new Raid Recaps!
With this feature, you can check out your past raids and see how well you did. It makes things more competitive by showing you which group you raided and how you performed.
๐Ÿ‘€Show off to your rivals!
But that's not all. When a raid finishes and we take something valuable, it will let everyone online know which faction did the raid and how much they took.

๐ŸŽจ New! Nickname Colors

We updating the way players can customize their nicknames, moving away from the traditional use of color codes with the /nick command.
๐Ÿ–Œ๏ธ No more color codes in the /nick command.
Instead of typing in color codes, players will now have the opportunity to unlock new and exciting nickname colors.
๐Ÿ”ฎ Unlock vibrant colors.
These options range from a single static color to fancy, exclusive gradient colors.
This change means players will need to achieve certain milestones or complete specific challenges to access these vibrant and unique nickname colors, making customization more rewarding and personalized.
๐Ÿ’ณ New! Reset Vault
Beginning with this season, we will introduce an innovative feature called the Reset Vault, designed to enhance the continuity of gameplay across seasons.
The Reset Vault allows players to carry over seasonal items into the next season by storing them in this special vault.
โŒ Only for equipment items.
However, it's important to note that the Reset Vault has its limitations. Specifically, it is designated only for equipment.
This means players cannot store currencies, vouchers, or any other non-equipment items.
๐Ÿค” But why?
The reason for this reset vault is simple, we feel like once you were finally able to obtain a special set, or weapon, with the new resource pack on it, it will be a shame to lose it into the next season. On top of that, starting from now the Galaxy enchantment tier is our first seasonal enchantment tier. After this season, these enchants will no longer be obtainable and thus become limited editions. With the reset vault you will be able to take items with these enchants with you, and still feel that remarkable moment when you unlocked them.
๐Ÿ“œ New! Scrolls

We are happy to be introducing scrolls, a new feature that allows players to enhance certain items by applying these scrolls for various benefits.
Scrolls serve two main purposes: tracking statistics and providing significant boosts to items.
The following scrolls have been added with this new season of Factions:

๐Ÿ’€Kill Tracker
โš’๏ธ Block Tracker
๐Ÿ“• Black Scroll
๐Ÿ˜‡ White Scroll
๐Ÿ”ฎ Enchantment Orb
Keep track of the kills you made with your weapon.
Can be applied to weapons.
Keep track of the amount of blocks broken.
Can be applied to tools.
Remove an enchant of your choice from an item. It will give you a book with random percentages of the selected enchant.
Can be applied to enchanted items.
Protects your items from being broken by an enchantment book.
Can be applied to weapons, tools, and armor.
Increases the slot for enchantments on your item. The maximum is 5 enchantments in total (Including vanilla enchants)
Can be applied to weapons, tools and armor.

โš’๏ธ New! Anvil

The introduction of the anvil to Factions finally marks a significant enhancement in item management for all of you.
With this new feature, players will now have the ability to combine items as well as repair them with ease, utilizing experience as the cost for these actions.
This addition simplifies the process of maintaining and upgrading your armor and weapons.

๐Ÿฌ New! Equipment Shop
The Equipment Shop introduces a practical solution for players finding themselves in need of gear, offering a range of equipment load-outs for purchase.
These load-outs, categorized into different tiers, provide players with a quick and efficient way to replenish their kits.
Each tier offers a distinct set of gear, catering to various levels of player needs and preferences.
โฐ A cooldown per loadout.
An important feature of these loadouts is the cooldown mechanism. This means there's a set period you must wait before you can purchase the same loadout again.
This cooldown period helps balance the game by preventing players from continuously stocking up on high-tier equipment without limitation.



๐Ÿฐ New! Stronghold

We are very excited about this new feature!
We feel as though this new feature will encourage PvP in a team-fight environment and will be well received by all members.
โ“ What is the Stronghold?
The Stronghold is essentially KOTH but on a larger scale. This is an event and would take place every 3 times per week (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday).
By going to the dark zone and entering the portal once the event starts, players are teleported to a new area
Keep in mind you only have 1 minute to enter once the event starts, in which they battle to capture it, and rewards are given to the player that manages to remain inside the stronghold capture area for 10 minutes!
๐Ÿ”” When is the Stronghold?
Friday: 22:00 server time
Saturday: 19:00 server time
Sunday: 15:00 server time
Pearls and commands are disabled, if you disconnect from the server you will instantly die and wonโ€™t be able to return to this event.
Be aware, touching lava means you guessed it instant death. This is the last man standing that you cannot leave, so make sure you are prepared to fight to the out.
๐Ÿค‘ Earn great rewards!
You will receive a Stronghold Lootbag upon winning the Stronghold with your faction.
This loot bag will be given to one of the faction members standing on the Stronghold, it is up to the faction to divide the loot equally. Some of the following rewards are within this loot bag, which gives a total of 3 items:
๐Ÿ’ฐ Money
๐Ÿ‘น Spawners
๐Ÿ”‘ Crate Keys
๐ŸŽฝ Pvp Sets
๐Ÿ“ƒ Ranks

๐Ÿฆ’ Updated! Pets

๐Ÿ•ด Fight in style.
Now, each special weapon boasts a unique texture, transforming how they look in the game.
These new textures can be seen by players who use the resource pack, providing a more immersive and visually appealing experience.
๐ŸฅŠ A change in abilities.

๐Ÿ›’ Updated! Spawner Shop
The spawner shop has been updated to make buying easier and better.
Now, you can buy many items at once, instead of only being able to buy one item at a time.
This change makes shopping quicker and lets you get what you need more efficiently.
It's a big improvement that many users will like because it makes buying items simpler and saves time.

Why did Factions reset?

Factions is already up for some time. A reset has to happen to change and improve with new features, to make the game more exciting for you all! This then allows players to have a fresh start and new players can begin to play without any significant disadvantage.

This means all items, money, and the map will be reset. Nothing will be kept leftover from the previous map. I know this must be a disappointing revelation for a lot of you, but think about the exciting new changes, the new alliances you can forge, the new map, the new features and updates the different kinds of gameplay, and the style provided with this update will surely make it a worth-while and exciting reset!

Below you can find what you will lose and what you will keep.
What will I keep?
