Changelog
The following are the most important features/modifications implemented towards this season's map and functions.
๐ŸŽ New! Map

Get ready for the comeback of our beloved KitPVP map, now with four unique themes in one exciting place.
This fan-favorite map mixes different worlds, from fiery savannah, to peaceful forests, icy mountains, and ancient ruins.

It's a place full of challenges and adventures waiting for you.
Gear up and dive into battles in landscapes you love, each with its twist.
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.


๐Ÿงฎ New! Quest Level

We're super happy to share a big update: our new Quest Level system!
This new system combines the best parts of Player Levels and Challenges.

๐Ÿšตโ€โ™€๏ธ Climb through the new levels.
๐Ÿค‘ Big rewards are waiting
Now, you'll love what we brought back from Player Levels - clear rewards to aim for. You get a new thing called Quest Level. It goes up when you finish quests, which start on their own now - no need to buy them.

Every quest you complete gives you Quest Experience, bumping up your Quest Level, kind of like the old Player Levels.
For certain levels, there are specific rewards you can get, besides the Quest Cases you already get from finishing quests.

This means more prizes and clear goals to hit.

๐Ÿ” New! Loot Protection

We're rolling out a new feature called Loot Protection to make your victories even sweeter!
Now, when you defeat another player, their drops will be protected and only available for you to pick up for the first 10 seconds.
This gives you the exclusive chance to claim your rewards without anyone else swooping in.
No more losing your hard-earned treasures to quick snatchers.



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 team.
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‘• New! Special Sets

We've introduced some fresh, new special sets to KitPvP. Each set comes with its unique abilities and perks, offering players more ways to customize their gameplay and stand out in the arena.
The following special sets have been added:
๐ŸŒธ Legion Set
๐Ÿ’€ Doomforged Set
๐Ÿช“ Shadowfall Set
๐Ÿ”ฅ Elderflame Set

๐Ÿ“œ New! Stat Track Tokens

Get ready for Stat Track Tokens, a cool new way to see your kills instead of the old kill messages!
Now, every weapon you use will count your kills and show them with special messages and colors. It's more than just counting; it's about making each weapon show off how good you are in battle.
๐Ÿ“Š Keep track of your statistics.
Stat Tracks makes your kills more interesting. You can show off how many people you've defeated with your favorite weapon or enjoy a unique message for each player you beat.
These Stat Track Tokens are the replacement for Kill Messages.

๐ŸฅŠ New! Special Weapons

We've rolled out exciting, new special weapons in KitPvP. Each weapon boasts its own unique abilities and perks, providing players with additional ways to tailor their gameplay and make a mark in the arena.
The newly added special weapons are:
๐Ÿ€ Exile Blade
๐ŸŒ“ Eclipse Axe
๐Ÿ‘ฟ Voidbound Sword
- Deal +8.5% more damage to enemies without a special set.
- 2.5% chance to remove Regeneration from your enemies.
- 1.5% chance to dodge damage.
- Deal +8.5% more damage to enemies holding swords
- Deal +6.5% more damage to enemies.
- 5% chance to deal the damage in an area of effect.



๐ŸŽฃ Updated! Fishing

In light of the economic inflation within KitPvP, we've decided to fish.
To ensure a balanced and fair economy for everyone, we are removing the option to use money boosters to increase the selling price of your fish.
This change is aimed at maintaining the value of in-game currency and ensuring that the economic system stays healthy and enjoyable for all players. While we understand this adjustment might be a shift from how things were, it's a step towards a more stable and equitable KitPvP gamemode.



๐Ÿท๏ธ Updated! Tags

We're bringing something exciting to the table โ€“ 10 brand-new tags for you to earn and collect!
With each tag, you get to showcase your skills and achievements in new and unique ways. These aren't just ordinary tags; each one is a trophy, a testament to your prowess and adventures within the game.
These tags add a personal touch to your profile, making your accomplishments stand out.
Start collecting these badges of honor and let them tell the story of your journey and victories!




๐Ÿ”‘ Updated! Crates


We've updated our crate system to make things more exciting and transparent for you! We've fine-tuned the odds and refreshed the rewards inside the crates.
๐Ÿ‘€ Insight into the chances.
Plus, to keep everything clear and upfront, you can now see the exact chances of getting each item from a crate.
This means no more guessing games; you'll know precisely what your chances are for snagging that item you've been eyeing.
With these tweaks, opening crates is going to be more thrilling and rewarding.



โœจRemoved! Star Tier & Level

We've made a significant update to our leveling system: the star tier and level have been removed, and now your overall level is directly tied to your quest level.
This change means that advancing through quests is more important than ever, directly impacting your progression and standing in the game. Focus on completing quests to level up and enhance your position.


โš™๏ธ Fixed! Bugs
We did our best to polish and fix as many existing bugs inside the KitPvP server.
We have looked through all the bug reports and managed to fix them. If you come across any bugs with the new release, make sure to report them at our forums under the bug reports section.
Here are a few of the bugs we squished out:

โ“Question and Answers
Why did KitPvP reset?

KitPvP 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?
  • Purchased Ranks & Rank Upgrades
  • Purchased Perks
  • Won out crates commands/ranks

What will I lose?
  • Your team & stats
  • Player level & premium reward pass
  • All items in your inventory and ender chest
  • Any currencies such as money and exp
  • Chatcolor permissions.
  • Seasonal ranks and perks





We hope to see you on our new KitPvP server soon!
If you have feedback or any suggestions, let us know we'd love to make this as good as we can.

will playervaults remain ? there is no line saying it will be removed
If u took extra playervaults from +1 or +2 PV/PV's voucher
They will be gone
If u have a perm rank like legend which has 2 pvs as default and u took 3 pv from +1 pv vouchers then u will have 2 pvs only after the ssn reset
