๐Ÿ›๏ธ New! Spawn
It is time for a new season, and what better way to do that than with a brand new spawn? Like every season the spawn will be filled with information & features, here is a list of the things you can find around spawn.
๐Ÿ›ก๏ธ A new spawn with a new medieval theme
โ“ Looking for some help? There are plenty of NPCs explaining all the features.
๐Ÿ“ฆ Supply drops can be found all around the warzone, this season with more drops at once.
๐Ÿ”‘ A new seasonal crate has been added again.
๐Ÿ—บ๏ธ Updated! Worlds
As every season needs a spawn we will also need some worlds for you to start your base in. There will be an overworld and an end world like all seasons, and worlds themed to the worlds fitting for this reset.
There will be a total of 20 corners, these being the following
๐ŸŒ Overworld ๐Ÿ”ฎ The End๐Ÿ›ก๏ธ Knights World๐Ÿงฝ Desert World ๐ŸŒจ๏ธSnow World

๐Ÿงจ New! Friendly Raids
We are proud to announce a brand new and unique feature that is coming to OpFactions this season, and that feature is Friendly Raids.
As the name suggests these raids will be completely different than from actually raiding someone's base, this raid is a well-planned raid with your faction against another faction, with highly customizable settings.

โ” How do you start a friendly raid?
Simple, you can invite another faction to a friendly raid using /f fr <faction>. Once you have chosen the faction you want to have a raid battle against it's time to select the members from your and their faction, after you have set a group of people participating in this friendly raid it's time to head over to the base settings.

๐Ÿ˜๏ธ Choose a base you like!
With the friendly raids, you can highly customize the base to your own liking, select the number of walls, toggle sand walls, toggle an ocean for the base, and much more. Once you have selected the settings you like it's time to talk about the wager.

๐Ÿ’ธ Looking for some competition? Set a wager!
Even though the name doesn't quite suggest it, the friendly raids can be competitive as well. A faction is able to set a wager on a friendly raid, and the loot will go to the faction that manages to breach the other factions' base first. This wager can consist of money, experience, and mob coins from the Faction Bank.

๐Ÿ’ฃ Select your counter cannon!
These 3 parts alone make FriendlyRaids something new and exciting already, but there is one key element missing, every base should be able to have a counter, which is why took it even a step further. You will be able to upload your counter schematics at our website and then you can select these schematics in-game to automatically be pasted inside your freshly chosen FriendlyRaids base, with just a few clicks your uploaded schematic is ready for use! After uploading your counter schematic you can choose to keep it for yourself or to share it with your faction so that they can use it in friendly raids as well.
These counters will be automatically pasted in the right position and box, will of course not be able to upload schematics with certain blocks, and there are multiple checks in place to ensure that you're uploading a correct counter.

With this brand new feature, we hope to keep some excitement throughout the map as well, as now you will be able to raid and practice your raiding skills without having to lose your base first or find someone finally being off their shield.

๐Ÿ‘” New! Special Sets
Last season we introduced some sets to make grinding certain aspects of the game easier, these sets could be obtained from the Black Market, this season we will be expanding on that idea and adding a bunch of cool new special sets that you can obtain in-game. All of these sets will each have their unique abilities to boost you in a certain way.
Here is a list of special sets that we will be adding this season of OpFactions:
Venus Special Set

๐Ÿ‰ New! Dragon Masks
These Dragon Masks are a new type of mask that can be applied on top of your helmet, next to your existing mask, these dragon masks will help you out grinding in the Dark Zone, and give you a buff per boss in each zone. You can obtain these Dragon Masks from all different types of loot bags.
As there are 4 zones in the Dark Zone we will be adding 4 dragon masks, these 4 masks are the following:
Nether Hydragon Mask
Swamp Hydragon Mask
Deserted Hydragon Mask
Bloom Hydragon Mask
Decreases the damage from bosses spawned in the Nether Zone by 15%

Increased the damage dealt to bosses spawned in the Nether Zone by

โฐNew! Playtime Rewards
Want more free stuff? By just being online playing, you can get rewards!
As your playtime increases, you get more rewards and goodies that will help you with your adventure this season.
The longer you spend time this season, the better rewards you'll receive. Isn't that cool? Learn more information about the brand new Playtime Rewards by typing the command /playrewards. Tiers of your progression will be displayed there!
๐Ÿ•ฐ๏ธNew! Dark Zone Boss Timer
In order to effectively grind bosses, it's good to know when a boss is about to spawn, previously we only send the spawning message after the Boss has spawned, but we have decided to change that.

Starting from now the Boss Spawn message will be executed instantly upon the boss spawning, so you know what you're headed into.
On top of that, we will be adding a /bosstimer command, where you can find all the bosses and the next time they're about to spawn.
With this change, we think the bosses in the Dark Zone will be more accessible, and easier to maintain the grind for everyone.
โ˜๏ธ New! Darkzone Weather

Breaking News! A storm surge is striking again at the faction dark zone, it isn't looking good for an outing at the moment. With the new Dark Zone Weather System, there will be different forecasts for each zone that will bring heat or coolness to your journey.
These weathers will grant the players special perks and abilities, may not be a great look for the weather, but you can use this to your advantage! Each Zone corner will have a different Weather Condition that will occur every hour! Here are the different conditions and their perks:
โ˜๏ธCloudy
๐ŸŒจ๏ธ Snow
๐ŸŒฉ๏ธStorm
๐ŸŒง๏ธRain
โ›…Sunny

There are a few clouds up in the sky, nothing special. A normal day in the dark zone with no other changes.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No! Those are snowflakes, the minions panic to get their food supply for the winter!

Now minions will spawn x2 as fast on the boss world and have a higher chance of dropping their recipe!

Do you hear that? It seems like thunder has struck the boss world.

All the bosses feel empowered, They will deal more damage in return, and this mystical power will yield more loot!
When it rains, it pours. Do you know what else pours? The Boss's pockets!

You now have a higher chance to slip an extra boss drop from killing it!
The heatwave is the new normal in Dark Zone! Nothing but a good day to rest away.

The bosses feel tired and will take more damage.
๐ŸŽŸ๏ธNew! Lottery
An overhaul within the Lottery System has been implemented in OpFactions! From looks, all the way to its mechanism. Wanna try your luck?
You can purchase a ticket using the /lottery command. Remember that the more ticket you choose to purchase, the more entry you will get from the queue, and likely a higher chance of winning!
Once you have purchased a ticket, you will automatically have an entry into the lottery queue. Every 6 hours, a lucky player will be chosen from the entry to win the Jackpot Prize!
The jackpot prize will vary depending on the tickets purchased by the whole player base of the gamemode. It's a tough gamble, but a big win is on the line. Have a great time and wish you good luck!

๐Ÿ๏ธUpdated! Dark Zone
The Dark Zone has been a great addition, but we have received some valuable player feedback on how to adjust the Dark Zone further and how to make it more interesting for the players to grind within that world. So that is why we will be making further small adjustments to the Dark Zone.

Reduced the damage output from bossesReduced the health of the little monstersIncreased top 3 to top 5 damagers
The bosses are a little too strong, making the risk compared to the reward too high and therefore not worth the time to kill bosses.
With this change, we hope to make it more worth it to grind these little monsters, as their drops can give you quite some extra money.
Now more people will have a chance to obtain a Boss Loot Bag, 5 players in total instead of 3.

๐ŸงฎUpdated! Player Levels
We took the time to take a look at the player levels. Player Levels are a great addition to our faction server but they were in a need of some fresh change.
A big revamp of the existing player levels and fine-tuned the rewards to make sure everyone is getting a good reward for the time spent on completing such levels.
You can start completing player levels using the /playerlevel command. In order to easily see your current progress, you can now use the /leveltask command as well.
๐Ÿ’ฐ Updated! Loot Bags

Loot bags can now only be found when killing a boss, as a top 5 damaged. For this season we will be expanding the idea of loot bags into more aspects of the server, as well as buffing some of the existing loot bags.

๐Ÿ’ฐ Updated! Dark Zone Boss Loot bags
๐Ÿ›๏ธ Updated! Bandit Base Loot bags
๐Ÿ‘ New! KOTH Loot Bag
Each boss will now have their own loot bag, themed with that boss and some other items. For example, the Goblin Loot bag will be filled with spawners and other utility, while the bear loot bag contains items to enhance your pvp, like enchants, special sets, et cetera.These loot bags that you get as a faction from raiding a bandit base will now be scaling with the season, the further you are in the season the more rewards you will get from raiding a Bandit Base, we want Bandit Bases to be a side activity that you can do throughout the whole season to compete for the Faction Top.The reward for a KOTH will now be a KOTH Loot Bag, this loot bag will contain all sorts of special rewards, from special sets to seasonal ranks and much more. This makes a KOTH more worth the value as the reward is still hidden after winning the KOTH, with this you can make more profit from just selling the KOTH Loot ag as well!
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.
Next to that, the Skills Leaderboard will also receive this improvement.

With many leaderboards being in a place we also added a global menu to view every leaderboard category, and run /leaderboards to view them.

โ˜ ๏ธ Top 10 Kills
๐Ÿ’ฐ Top 10 Balance
๐ŸงŸ Top 10 Mobs Killed
๐Ÿฌ Top 10 Sugar Cane Harvested
๐ŸŽš๏ธ Top 10 Player Levels
๐Ÿ”ซ Top 10 of all Skill Levels
๐Ÿ‘น Top 10 Mob Coins
๐Ÿ”‘ Top 10 Crate Keys opened
๐ŸŒฟ Top 10 Custom Crops Harvested


๐ŸŽจ Updated! Aesthetic Overhaul
We feel like it's time for a change, the style around PikaNetwork is slowly changing, and OpFactions can not be left behind.
This season we decided it's about time to start the change at OpFactions, giving it a nice aesthetic overhaul, here is an overview of things we have updated:

- Help Commands
- We added a new /help menu for new players and long-term players for new features
- Added more in-depth help commands for certain features
- Updated the hologram styling
- Updated the faction messages
- Updated the tab list overview
- Minor changes to the scoreboard
and much more!


โš™๏ธ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 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:
  • Fixed duels and re-enabled it.

With this brand new feature, we hope to keep some excitement throughout the map as well, as now you will be able to raid and practice your raiding skills without having to lose your base first or find someone finally being off their shield.

The longer you spend time this season, the better rewards you'll receive. Isn't that cool? Learn more information about the brand new Playtime Rewards by typing the command /playrewards. Tiers of your progression will be displayed there!
๐Ÿ•ฐ๏ธNew! Dark Zone Boss Timer
In order to effectively grind bosses, it's good to know when a boss is about to spawn, previously we only send the spawning message after the Boss has spawned, but we have decided to change that.

Starting from now the Boss Spawn message will be executed instantly upon the boss spawning, so you know what you're headed into.
On top of that, we will be adding a /bosstimer command, where you can find all the bosses and the next time they're about to spawn.
With this change, we think the bosses in the Dark Zone will be more accessible, and easier to maintain the grind for everyone.
โ˜๏ธ New! Darkzone Weather

Breaking News! A storm surge is striking again at the faction dark zone, it isn't looking good for an outing at the moment. With the new Dark Zone Weather System, there will be different forecasts for each zone that will bring heat or coolness to your journey.
These weathers will grant the players special perks and abilities, may not be a great look for the weather, but you can use this to your advantage! Each Zone corner will have a different Weather Condition that will occur every hour! Here are the different conditions and their perks:
โ˜๏ธCloudy
๐ŸŒจ๏ธ Snow
๐ŸŒฉ๏ธStorm
๐ŸŒง๏ธRain
โ›…Sunny

There are a few clouds up in the sky, nothing special. A normal day in the dark zone with no other changes.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No! Those are snowflakes, the minions panic to get their food supply for the winter!

Now minions will spawn x2 as fast on the boss world and have a higher chance of dropping their recipe!

Do you hear that? It seems like thunder has struck the boss world.

All the bosses feel empowered, They will deal more damage in return, and this mystical power will yield more loot!
When it rains, it pours. Do you know what else pours? The Boss's pockets!

You now have a higher chance to slip an extra boss drop from killing it!
The heatwave is the new normal in Dark Zone! Nothing but a good day to rest away.

The bosses feel tired and will take more damage.
๐ŸŽŸ๏ธNew! Lottery
An overhaul within the Lottery System has been implemented in OpFactions! From looks, all the way to its mechanism. Wanna try your luck?
You can purchase a ticket using the /lottery command. Remember that the more ticket you choose to purchase, the more entry you will get from the queue, and likely a higher chance of winning!
Once you have purchased a ticket, you will automatically have an entry into the lottery queue. Every 6 hours, a lucky player will be chosen from the entry to win the Jackpot Prize!
The jackpot prize will vary depending on the tickets purchased by the whole player base of the gamemode. It's a tough gamble, but a big win is on the line. Have a great time and wish you good luck!

๐Ÿ๏ธUpdated! Dark Zone
The Dark Zone has been a great addition, but we have received some valuable player feedback on how to adjust the Dark Zone further and how to make it more interesting for the players to grind within that world. So that is why we will be making further small adjustments to the Dark Zone.

Reduced the damage output from bossesReduced the health of the little monstersIncreased top 3 to top 5 damagers
The bosses are a little too strong, making the risk compared to the reward too high and therefore not worth the time to kill bosses.
With this change, we hope to make it more worth it to grind these little monsters, as their drops can give you quite some extra money.
Now more people will have a chance to obtain a Boss Loot Bag, 5 players in total instead of 3.

๐ŸงฎUpdated! Player Levels
We took the time to take a look at the player levels. Player Levels are a great addition to our faction server but they were in a need of some fresh change.
A big revamp of the existing player levels and fine-tuned the rewards to make sure everyone is getting a good reward for the time spent on completing such levels.
You can start completing player levels using the /playerlevel command. In order to easily see your current progress, you can now use the /leveltask command as well.
๐Ÿ’ฐ Updated! Loot Bags

Loot bags can now only be found when killing a boss, as a top 5 damaged. For this season we will be expanding the idea of loot bags into more aspects of the server, as well as buffing some of the existing loot bags.

๐Ÿ’ฐ Updated! Dark Zone Boss Loot bags
๐Ÿ›๏ธ Updated! Bandit Base Loot bags
๐Ÿ‘ New! KOTH Loot Bag
Each boss will now have their own loot bag, themed with that boss and some other items. For example, the Goblin Loot bag will be filled with spawners and other utility, while the bear loot bag contains items to enhance your pvp, like enchants, special sets, et cetera.These loot bags that you get as a faction from raiding a bandit base will now be scaling with the season, the further you are in the season the more rewards you will get from raiding a Bandit Base, we want Bandit Bases to be a side activity that you can do throughout the whole season to compete for the Faction Top.The reward for a KOTH will now be a KOTH Loot Bag, this loot bag will contain all sorts of special rewards, from special sets to seasonal ranks and much more. This makes a KOTH more worth the value as the reward is still hidden after winning the KOTH, with this you can make more profit from just selling the KOTH Loot ag as well!
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.
Next to that, the Skills Leaderboard will also receive this improvement.

With many leaderboards being in a place we also added a global menu to view every leaderboard category, and run /leaderboards to view them.

โ˜ ๏ธ Top 10 Kills
