Changelog
The most important features/modifications implemented towards this season's map and functions are the following.
๐Ÿฆœ New! KitPvP Map
As the days are getting colder we decided to turn up the heat for a little longer at PikaNetwork. On this KitPvP map you will find yourself in a tropical kitmap-styled map, with safe rooms, KOTHs, and much more. We will be doing our best to rotate maps on special occasions to keep the KitPvP experience fresh for as long as possible.
xYTjx4R.png
๐ŸŒด A new spawn and PVP arena with a tropical theme.
๐Ÿ’ฐ 4 Different KOTHs to capture every day.
โ“Are you looking for some help? There are plenty of NPCs explaining all the features.
๐Ÿ”‘ A new seasonal crate has been added again.
๐Ÿ”‹ New! Power Points

A new currency has been added to KitPvP, Power Points. These points are a strong source of energy containing so much power it will help you progress even further as a player to more you play KitPvP.

This currency can be obtained by capturing KOTHs. For every KOTH you capture as a team you will obtain 5 Power Points, these points will be directly added to your account and can be viewed within the newly updated action bar and on the tablist.
Power Points are used in combination with money to progress your Skill Tree.


๐ŸŒฒ New! Skills Tree
The Skills Tree is a brand new unique feature coming to KitPvP. This skill tree will give you access to brand-new certain perks and abilities that will further enhance you as a player. These skills can be unlocked with Power Points.
๐Ÿ“ˆ Upgrade your Skill Tree!
Once you have unlocked a skill you will be able to level some of them up as well, in order to provide you with a bigger boost. This will cost money and power points, unlocking the skill simply only will cost you Power Points. You can progress through the Skill Tree in a way you'd like, however, you can only unlock a Skill if it is connected to one that you have unlocked, how you will do that is up to you!

Leveling up you skills will also increase the chance of the abilities activating.
Here is a list of skills that you will able to unlock and level-up within the Skill Tree:
Alchemist - Gain access to /alchemist.
Doge - Gain a chance to dodge incoming damage.
Leap of faith - Chance to obtain jump boost at low HP.
Cliffhanger - Chance to dodge incoming fall damage.

๐Ÿ”ฎ New! Essence
Next to Power Points, we will be introducing Essence, this Essence is essential if you want to unlock your Skill Tree, or if you want to save up your money from repairing your gear every time!
๐ŸŒถ๏ธ Salvage those items
Essence is obtained by using the Salvager, a Salvager is a strange man who likes special sets, player skulls, and donator kit gear, this gear, and your enemy's skulls can be traded in within the /salvager in order to obtain some Essence.
๐Ÿง™โ€โ™‚๏ธ Visit the Alchemist
The alchemist is a trader that gives a handful of power points in trade for your leftover Essence. If capping KOTHs isn't something for you then slaughtering players might be! Collect Essence in order to trade it with the Alchemist.
๐ŸŒŸ The Essence Shop
A new category in the /shop is the essence shop. We know how much you all loved to use the permanent Swiftness 3 by quickly swapping out gear, now that this has been fixed you will have to do some grinding in order to get these books going. In the Essence Shop you will be able to purchase Swiftness, Poison & Fire Resistance books for Essence. This way you will still be able to enjoy the permanent Swiftness III, but this time in the way we intended.
On top of that, if saving up for those books isn't something for you the essence shop will also have some Essence Potions. These potions are regular potions but with a much longer duration, they're a bit cheaper than the enchantment books but also a good way to obtain some extra potion effects.


๐Ÿ†™ New! Player Levels
Player Levels are a new and fun way of progression in KitPvP. For this reset, we decided it is time to change up some basic things such as a simple level. Player Levels have been introduced in almost every gamemode we have to offer, so we could not leave KitPvP behind.
A player level is simple, you complete tasks in order to level up! You can showcase your progress on the level in the chat!
๐Ÿค‘ Go Premium!
Want to earn more rewards for completing the levels? Obtain the Premium Level Pass and profit from plenty of extra rewards upon leveling up. These rewards can be claimed for every level as soon as you obtain this pass.
Every few levels will give you a new level color, and with the premium pass, you will be able to unlock different types of bracket colors as well.
We will be starting off with 50 different levels that all have their unique tasks related to KitPvP.


๐Ÿ’€ New! Player Skulls
What is better than slaughtering your biggest opponent? Getting a trophy to celebrate it!
After you have reached Player Level 5 you will have a 10% chance of your victim's skulls being chopped off by you with no mercy. These skulls will be able to serve as a trophy, or a way to gain some extra essence.

The value of a player's skull is based on their KDR, did you kill a madman of a player? Then the skull with has a much higher value for the Salvager than someone who just keeps on dying over and over again! It's time to bounty hunt in style.
โญ New! Star Tier
As we are introducing player levels it's a bit confusing to have 2 different levels, however, we still like the basic idea of people simply grinding kills in order to progress, after all, that's what this gamemode is all about, getting as many kills as you can.

That is why we will be changing the looks and name of your KitPvP level and points, your level will now be called Star Tier.
This star tier is a simple display of how high up you are in the rankings of KitPvP, the more kills & assists you obtain the higher your Star Tier will be.
๐ŸŒ  Where to find my Star Tier?
Your Star Tier will be displayed on the right side of your name, and it will look like this.
For every 20 Star Tiers, you will gain a new star icon. The higher the tier the bigger and prettier the star icon.

๐Ÿงฎ What about Prestige & Points?
Prestige is still available and will now change the color of your star display as a whole.
Instead of points, you will now be able to collect starts, the same idea, just with a new look and feel!
We have also rebalanced the Star Tiers to be more obtainable, we do not want to force people to play a full year just to be able to prestige once or twice.


๐Ÿ“ฎ New! Delivery System

The mailman is working extra hours for you. With the new mail delivery, you will be able to send items to your friends, even when they are offline.
You can send up to 18 items per delivery, and the player you sent it to can pick it up at any given time.
โœ‰๏ธ Sending a delivery.
To make a delivery simply type /delivery <player name>, and an inventory will pop up where you can drop your items in, the delivery man will make sure all these items come in 1 small package to the person you are sending it to. Close the inventory when you are done sending the items or click the Cancel button to cancel.
๐Ÿ“ฉ Picking up your deliveries.
To pick up deliveries, type /deliveries, or visit the Delivery Man at spawn, he will take care of all your incoming packages until you have claimed them.


๐Ÿท๏ธ New! Tags
Tags are a new way to stand out in chat. You can earn tags by purchasing them on our store, or by getting a few of them available in-game. Some tags will be appearing in the transfer shop. So if you are planning to become even more fancy make sure to check out the new /tags.
Collect every tag to stand out in chat even more.
Tags come in 6 different tiers: Common, Rare, Epic, Legendary, Seasonal & Special.
The seasonal tags are only obtainable during the current season, after this season you will no longer be able to collect them.
The special tags are given to players for helping us out by reporting bugs, posting suggestions, and overall making KitPvP a more enjoyable gamemode.


๐Ÿ”‘ Updated! Crates
We have given an update to the crates as well for this season. We have changed a lot of rewards and tweaked the crate system to have a better implementation as well. On top of that, we also added some new and unique features for the crate keys that you open as well.
๐ŸŽฒ Re-rolling
Re-rolling a crate reward is something you all have wished for, and for this season we will be implementing this feature. There will be an option to re-roll your crate rewards, however, this is not guaranteed, you will either need to be lucky or you can obtain a re-roll token in-game in order to be able to re-roll your next reward.


๐Ÿ—บ๏ธ Updated! Challenges

Challenges are a great way to do something with a challenge. That is why we decided it is time to update these challenges.
We added a bunch of new ones and buffed the rewards for each challenge that you complete.

On top of that you can now also complete 5 instead of 3 challenges each day, so even more for you to grind for!


๐Ÿ“Š Updated! Leaderboards

Statistics are important in a competitive scene, so that is why we want players to stand out, or brag about their achievements.
It's okay to be proud, and you should be able to show your accomplishments in style.
Next to that is that we want players to feel and see their own progression, where are they standing, and how much further they have to go to reach a higher spot on the leaderboards, and that is why we will be doing a complete leaderboard revamp.
On every leaderboard, you will now be able to view your exact position. This goes for the leaderboards in spawn and newly introduced leaderboards.
With many leaderboards being in a place we also added a global menu to view every leaderboard category, and run /leaderboards to view them.
These 9 leaderboards will now be displayed in-game:

๐Ÿ’ฐ Top 10 Balance
๐Ÿ’€ Top 10 Kills
โญ Top 10 Star Tier
๐Ÿ”‘ Top 10 Crate Keys opened
๐Ÿ†™ Top 10 Player Levels
๐ŸŽš๏ธ Top 10 Challenges Completed
๐Ÿท๏ธ Top 10 Highest Killstreak
๐Ÿ”ฎ Top 10 Essence
๐Ÿ”‹ Top 10 Power Points

๐ŸŽฝ Updated! Special Sets
It's almost like a swimsuit, but for this tropical new adventure you will have to put on something nicer, a new special set maybe?
This season we balanced out some special sets, fixed the issues with existing ones, and added a few new sets.
The following special sets can be obtained in-game:
Angel
Vengeful
Reaper
Divine
- You gain 2 extra hearts while wearing this set.
- Gain a 3% chance to gain Speed V on low health.
- 5% chance to gain Strength II in combat.

- Enemies deal 5% less damage to you.

๐Ÿ”ฅ Updated! Kill Streak Rewards

Kill Streaks are meant to be a celebration, so we buffed the rewards for Kill Streaks.
There will now be money rewards for Kill Streaks and on top of that, we added a bunch of extra items from armor to weapons to equipment boxes to gear up even more!
The following rewards will now be rewarded for Kill Streaks:
5 Streak -$50
10 Streak - $100
15 Streak - $150
25 Streak - $250 + Special Equipment Box
35 Streak - $500

350 Streak - $3,500 + Special Equipment Box

For every 10 kills you obtain in a Kill Streak you will also earn bonus Star Points to level up your Star Tier faster!
On top of that for every 25 killstreaks, you will earn an extra $150 as well.


โ›๏ธ Updated! Anvils
The anvil is essential to combine and repair tools. This is why we decided to update the anvil. You will now be able to choose to repair using essence, or using money.
On top of that, there is now the option to repair all your gear, weapons, and other tools all with the click of one button, in order to make it more convenient for each player.
You can access the anvil simply by clicking an anvil located at spawn.

To make a delivery simply type /delivery <player name>, and an inventory will pop up where you can drop your items in, the delivery man will make sure all these items come in 1 small package to the person you are sending it to. Close the inventory when you are done sending the items or click the Cancel button to cancel.
๐Ÿ“ฉ Picking up your deliveries.
To pick up deliveries, type /deliveries, or visit the Delivery Man at spawn, he will take care of all your incoming packages until you have claimed them.


๐Ÿท๏ธ New! Tags
Tags are a new way to stand out in chat. You can earn tags by purchasing them on our store, or by getting a few of them available in-game. Some tags will be appearing in the transfer shop. So if you are planning to become even more fancy make sure to check out the new /tags.
Collect every tag to stand out in chat even more.
Tags come in 6 different tiers: Common, Rare, Epic, Legendary, Seasonal & Special.
The seasonal tags are only obtainable during the current season, after this season you will no longer be able to collect them.
The special tags are given to players for helping us out by reporting bugs, posting suggestions, and overall making KitPvP a more enjoyable gamemode.


๐Ÿ”‘ Updated! Crates
We have given an update to the crates as well for this season. We have changed a lot of rewards and tweaked the crate system to have a better implementation as well. On top of that, we also added some new and unique features for the crate keys that you open as well.
๐ŸŽฒ Re-rolling
Re-rolling a crate reward is something you all have wished for, and for this season we will be implementing this feature. There will be an option to re-roll your crate rewards, however, this is not guaranteed, you will either need to be lucky or you can obtain a re-roll token in-game in order to be able to re-roll your next reward.


๐Ÿ—บ๏ธ Updated! Challenges

Challenges are a great way to do something with a challenge. That is why we decided it is time to update these challenges.
We added a bunch of new ones and buffed the rewards for each challenge that you complete.

On top of that you can now also complete 5 instead of 3 challenges each day, so even more for you to grind for!


๐Ÿ“Š Updated! Leaderboards

Statistics are important in a competitive scene, so that is why we want players to stand out, or brag about their achievements.
It's okay to be proud, and you should be able to show your accomplishments in style.
Next to that is that we want players to feel and see their own progression, where are they standing, and how much further they have to go to reach a higher spot on the leaderboards, and that is why we will be doing a complete leaderboard revamp.
On every leaderboard, you will now be able to view your exact position. This goes for the leaderboards in spawn and newly introduced leaderboards.
With many leaderboards being in a place we also added a global menu to view every leaderboard category, and run /leaderboards to view them.
These 9 leaderboards will now be displayed in-game:

๐Ÿ’ฐ Top 10 Balance
๐Ÿ’€ Top 10 Kills
โญ Top 10 Star Tier
๐Ÿ”‘ Top 10 Crate Keys opened
๐Ÿ†™ Top 10 Player Levels

โ›๏ธ Updated! Anvils
The anvil is essential to combine and repair tools. This is why we decided to update the anvil. You will now be able to choose to repair using essence, or using money.
On top of that, there is now the option to repair all your gear, weapons, and other tools all with the click of one button, in order to make it more convenient for each player.
You can access the anvil simply by clicking an anvil located at spawn.
