    Hello Community,
    We have decided to revamp the Factions server to improve its performance, enlarge its playerbase and add many new features for you to enjoy! We have also fixed the current Factions server' mechanics issues (Redstone, Lava flow, TNT Cannons mechanics, etc.). No more McMMo. The update will be released this weekend (unless any technical difficulties occur) to bring a whole new life to Factions. Make sure to read about some of the updates below! This is part of the Pika 2.0 update aimed at improving almost all of PikaNetwork's servers, therefore expect many more updates throught the following months!
    [​IMG]

    Top Factions
    Yes, we have added /f top. You can now view the top factions and their worth, their spawners and their blocks placed. We will be awarding the Top faction monthly (more information about this coming soon). This update's main purpose is to bring a large community to Factions. Competitiveness is highly encouraged!

    KoTH - King of the Hill

    As we all know, KoTH in the current Factions servers and the one before it never worked correctly. This is why KoTH has been a major issue that we concentrated on throughout the update. KoTH will be different in this update, there will be one KoTH game 11PM & 3PM EST Time which is 5PM & 9PM GMT+1
    The rewards have been improved and we have added a scoreboard that has the running KoTH information.
    You will not have to worry about getting the KoTH game's cords and walking to it because we will use one steady position which can be accessed through /warp koth.

    Server Shop
    Due to many complaints about the condition of the current shop, we are using 2015's shop prices with a couple of additions and changes. Creeper eggs prices have been lowered by atleast 30,000 and alot of other changes! Auction house and /trade have also been added to ensure a safe environment for trading and selling/buying.

    Server Mechanics
    In response to the bugs and suggestions submitted by the community's members, alot of issues that made Factions hard to play were fixed. We have fixed lava flow, redstone ticks and TNT Cannons in the world.
    We also enhanced the server's performance and used a spawn that will not affect your FPS.


    Donator Ranks Improvements
    Several new perks have been added to the Donator ranks.
    Different Donator ranks get a boost when voting, which means that their rewards aren't like normal members.

    [​IMG]

    • Coal rank and above get /TNTFill command which automatically fills the nearest dispensers with TNT from your inventory in a radius of 10.
    • Bedrock rank and above get a custom join message. There will be an announcement once a Bedrock+ Joins the server.
    • Gold rank and above get trails/particles. However, Gold doesn't unlock all particles.[​IMG]
    • Coal rank and above get [item] which displays the item being hold in chat. It displays the name and the enchantments. [​IMG]
    • Legend rank gets a limit of 12 auctioned items at the same time on /ah or /auctionhouse
    • Coal rank up to Bedrock have a blue colored name in Tab. God has a yellow colored nametag, Legend red, Master gold and Ultimate and Ultimate+ dark red.
    New Warps
    Warps such as warp PvP havent been updated for years. We decided it's time to change them.
    In warp pvp, you will be able to sell player heads for $50 each. There will be a zombie NPC at the warp's safezone that you have to click on to sell the heads or you can simply do /sellheads
    The kits menu will be accessible in warp pvp but you won't be able to obtain any kit but the pvp one. I will not expose the new warps on this thread, make sure to check them out yourselves!
    [​IMG]



    Spawners Enchancements
    We have added /spawnershop which has all of the spawners available on the server. This update brings a whole new meaning to spawners; every 100 mobs spawned by a spawner will increase its performance by 2% and you can now merge up to 5 spawners in 1!

    Mysteryboxes

    Factions will no longer have crates, it will instead have Mysteryboxes that can be purchased on the webstore (except for the vote mysterybox that is awarded on voting). The mysteryboxes will be the following: Premium, Vote, Spawners (different spawners & different levels) and Tags (Cool tags bruh)

    P.S Sneak peek of the tags
