Changelog
Here is the list of changes for this reset. I would recommend giving it a good read-over to make sure you are familiar with everything you are going to see.
🏛️ New! Spawn
Every season needs its brand new spawn and buildings, therefore we've decided to have a roman Theme for this season. We loved how it turned out to be, and we hope you all do too! There will be a roman-themed warzone around this spawn, including multiple different KOTHS which you can capture for some extra rewards.
You will also be able to find supply crates that have been dropped into the warzone every hour. You can claim these supply crates by clicking on them to receive some great rewards!
There will be a total of 20 corners, these being the following:
Over World (/spawn)
The border for the overworld will be 10,000 x 10,000 (-5,000 to 5,000) - The spawn is located in the middle.
1,000 x 1,000 warzone. Koths will be located at each side of /spawn close to it.
The End (/warp end)
The border for the end world will be 10,000 x 10,000 (-5,000 to 5,000) - The warp is located in the middle.
Flat sandstone will be placed from Y:1 to Y:30.
This warp counts with 1 KOTH.
Desert World (/warp desert)
The border for the desert world will be 7,500 x 7,500 (-3,750 to 3,750) - The warp is located in the middle.
Flat green clay will be placed from Y:1 to Y:30.
This warp counts with 1 KOTH.
Roman World (/warp roman)
The border for the Roman world will be 7,500 x 7,500 (-3,750 to 3,750) - The warp is located in the middle.
Flat sandstone will be placed from Y:1 to Y:30.
An outpost will be located within this world.
Knight World (/warp knight)
The border for the knight world will be 7,500 x 7,500 (-3,750 to 3,750) - The warp is located in the middle.
Flat green clay will be placed from Y:1 to Y:30.
This warp counts with 1 KOTH.

🪙 New! Gold Currency
Gold is a global currency of PikaNetwork.
From now on, you will be able to buy things directly inside the server at the new Store NPC. Instead of making transactions on the Webstore, all you need to do is transfer funds from the Webstore to the in-game store, and you are set, until you spend it all!
Found on our current Webstore at store.pika-network.net, you will be able to purchase Gold to be used in the In-Game Store.
You can purchase tags, cosmetic items, and more in-game in the /gold shop.
Information
  • Check your gold balance using command /gold balance
  • Spend your gold in-game with /goldshop

🗺️ New! Chunk Info
This new command /chunkinfo will allow you to view all of the spawners within the claim you are standing, whether they are stacked or not. Therefore, whenever you do /chunkinfo, you will be provided detailed information of what kind of spawners are in a specific chunk, along with the spawner's levels.
🗓️ Updated! Tablist
We have given the tablist a brand new look for this game mode! Instead of displaying the name of 80+ players, you will now be able to see some really useful information regarding your overall gameplay statistics within OpFactions. This information will be as reachable as you holding down the tab button in order to see it, and some of the visible statistics are the following:
  • Balance
  • Kills
  • Upcoming koths
  • Ftop placement
  • Ftop balance
And much more...
🧨 Updated! Koths
The Koth loot has been updated, as well as a change in their schedule. We will now be running more frequent KOTHS than we did before. Apart from their frequency, you will now receive normal and special rewards from winning a KOTH. This makes the risk of taking a KOTH more worth it than ever before.
📃 Updated! Vouchers
Vouchers presented a lot of issues this season, especially rank vouchers. This is why in this reset we took the time to completely rework the vouchers and set them all up once again. We have also created a couple of new vouchers! Make sure you take a look at them.
📊 Updated! Store
Due to the returning of the payouts to Opfactions, we had to make a huge amount of changes related to the packages we were selling in the store. We have taken a good amount of time making sure everything is compliant with the current rules of the provided EULA. Having said this, these are the following modifications we have performed to the store:
  • Removed Crate Keys from the webstore
  • Removed Classes from the webstore.
Please Note: Any already purchased package will not be removed!
📦 Updated! Crates
For this new season, we have decided to look over the crates, and we have implemented some new rewards, as well as we have removed other ones, these are the following:
  • Added a new seasonal crate
  • Updated chances for certain items.
  • Added a couple of brand new items
  • Removed some items.
  • Changed the quantity of some items

⚙️ Fixed! Bugs
We did our best to polish and fix as many existing bugs inside the OpFactions server. We have looked through all the bug reports and managed to fix them. If you come across any bug 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:
  • Not being able to use /rename whilst being muted.
  • Not being able to use /f show and /f who in combat.
  • Voteparty wouldn't give you a reward even when you had discord linked.
  • Fixed a spelling mistake within the enchantments menu.
  • Fixed raiding issues.
📬 Misc. Updates and changes.
After receiving some suggestions about modifying a couple of things, we have decided to make the following modifications in order to make everyone's Factions experience much better. We have modified a few features which were present on the previous map, and here is the list including those modifications, along with a justification for the majority:
  • Mcmmo messages will now be displayed within your actionbar instead of the chat, this way it causes less spam.
  • The cooldown for the rename command has been removed, you can now rename full sets within minutes.
  • You can no longer water spawners.
  • Updated all plugins.
  • Updated the leaderboards
  • Fixed crash and ping issues.
  • Changed tnt price.
  • Updated all help commands
  • Updated the broadcasts
  • Patched invite bug
  • Updated /wilderness command.
Please note: Any suggestions for changes feel free to leave them in the comments.

📬Question and Answers

Why does OpFactions reset?

OpFactions 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 you 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. 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 kinds of gameplay, and style is provided with this update will surely make it a worth-while and exciting reset!
Below you can find what you will lose and one for what you will keep
What will I lose?
  • Your claims
  • All items in your inventory and ender chest
  • Any currencies such as money and exp
  • Chatcolor permissions.
  • Seasonal ranks and perks
What will I keep?
  • Purchased Ranks & Rank Upgrades
  • Purchased Perks
  • Won out of crates commands/ranks


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

2 questions

Will we be able to share the gold coins as we need to distribute payouts among faction members?

Are there any changes in the perms and kits certain ranks have?
