Factions - Pika-Network 2019

November 23th 2019, 20:00 GMT / 15:00 EST / 14:00 CST / 13:00 MT / 12:00 PST


Greetings PikaCrafters,

After a long time, our Factions server will finally receive an updated to a refreshed reset with a brand new world and some exciting new changes!
Moving into the reset of factions are some changes made, some changes that will change the features of factions, we would ask you to read them below.

Factions and Galactix will be merged into one server. We decided to combine them both into one Faction server, with the best features of both servers. Factions will now have custom enchants and bosses, along with several new features, read below for all features. We hope to keep both player bases happy with this by still keeping some features from Galactix, but still keeping the main faction gameplay from factions.

We have decided to do this merge for multiple reasons, but the main reason is that three factions servers are just too much, and no longer needed at pika-network. We believe this merge will increase competition and benefit the server in the long run. Sadly enough is the current faction player base not big enough to keep and have three faction servers online.

All perks/ranks from Galactix will be carried over. All ranks from Galactix are already transferred over, and everyone got a rank equal to the amount they paid for. This will all be done by us and you don't have to do anything, of course, if you miss your rank from Galactix can you always report this at the forums. But this shouldn't be needed.

Let's not make it longer and go straight to the details since that's what people are interested in.

The release of the brand new Factions server is scheduled on Saturday, November 23 at 8.00 PM GMT.

Saturday 23th November 2019

Faction Top Rewards

This new and upcoming Faction season comes of course with a brand new Faction top competition.
For this season reset we’ll be changing up how we distribute FactionTop rewards! Instead of one large sum of money for the winner at the end of the season, we’ll be splitting it up into several prizes over the lifetime of the season. This should increase competition throughout the entirety of the season rather than allow the winning factions to be the only people left competing after the first week or two.

Every 2 weeks Rewards: #1, #2, & #3
  • First Place
    • $75 Store Gift Card
  • Second Place
    • $50 Store Gift Card

Questions & Answers
Q: What will be kept after the reset?
A:

  • Ranks
  • /classes
  • Purchase or won out of crates commands
Q: What will be lost with the reset?
A:

  • Cash
  • Bases/land
  • MCmmo
  • Items
Q: Why did factions reset?
A:
A lot of people have left and said the map became boring they have seen everything, and they want a fresh start. So here it is a clean new map with some updates!


This means all factions, items, money and the map will be reset. Nothing will be kept leftover from the previous map. Of course, all purchases will be reissued so nobody will be out of pocket in that regard. 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 kind of gameplay and style being provided with this update will surely make it a worth-while and exciting reset!
We hope to see you in our new Factions server soon!
If you have feedback or any suggestion, let us know we'd love to make this as good as we can.

Thanks,
Voodootje0, Gunfire​
