๐Ÿ’ฃ New! Raid Recaps

Say hello to our new Raid Recaps!
With this feature, you can check out your past raids and see how well you did. It makes things more competitive by showing you which group you raided and how you performed.
๐Ÿ‘€ Show off to your rivals!
But that's not all. When a raid finishes and we take something valuable, it will let everyone online know which faction did the raid and how much they took.




๐Ÿ“ New! Super Scrolls

Let's talk about Super Scrolls โ€“ we have six of them, and they're here to supercharge your gear!
You can use them just like regular scrolls, but the boost they provide is way more powerful.
These scrolls are designed to make your weapons, armor, and other items much better, giving you a big advantage in the game.

๐Ÿ’ฐ Auto Sell
๐ŸŸข Drops Boost
Auto-sell the crystals you have mined.

๐Ÿค New! Trading

Our OpFactions server now has a brand new custom trade plugin, and trading is finally back in the game!
With this new plugin, players can now easily and safely trade items in-game.
๐Ÿ” Trade items safely and with ease.
We've designed it to be user-friendly, making it easy for players to navigate and make trades with ease.
This plugin is the perfect solution for those looking to trade rare or hard-to-find items with other players.
We know how important trading is in many games, and we're thrilled to bring it back to our community.
We've ensured this plugin is secure and free from any exploits, making it a safe option for players who want to trade.



๐Ÿ‡Updated! Pets
We've implemented a series of small yet significant tweaks to the pet system.
These changes have been carefully crafted to improve the overall experience and interaction with your pets.

๐ŸŒŠ Updated! Lochness Pet
๐Ÿท New! Pig Pet
Like the Pig Pet, the Lochness Pet is now also togglable.
Once activated you deal more damage in water.
The damage has been lowered to 8% instead of 15%.
The Pig Pet has been returned, and better than ever.

Now you simply have to activate the Pig Pet and it will feed you, rather than having to click it multiple times to be fed over time.



๐Ÿ“œUpdated! Quests

Up next in our series of updates are Quests, and we've made some significant improvements.
โœจ A neater look.
To start, we've given the Quest GUI a complete makeover, providing a cleaner and more user-friendly experience. Now, with a simple shift-click on the quest tiers, players can easily see all the potential rewards for each tier, making things more transparent and motivating.
๐Ÿ’ฐ Better rewards.
Moreover, we've substantially increased the rewards for quests across all tiers.
This improvement is aimed at further rewarding players for their commitment and hard work, ensuring that the time and effort put into completing quests result in more valuable and satisfying rewards.




๐Ÿ‘œUpdated! Loot Bags

After our recent updates, we've made significant improvements to all the loot bags in the game, providing better rewards for players who put in the time and effort to grind.
This enhancement is designed to make sure that the hard work and time you put into the game are more satisfying and rewarding for our dedicated players.
The loot bags that have received upgrades include:
๐Ÿ† Event Lootbags
๐Ÿšตโ€โ™€๏ธ Koth Loot
๐Ÿ‘ฟ Boss Lootbags




๐ŸฏUpdated! Stronghold

About the Stronghold event, we're setting it up so every faction has enough time to get ready.
From now on, these events will always happen on Saturdays and Sundays at 7 PM server time.
This means a Stronghold event will replace the usual random event on these days.
๐Ÿฐ Don't worry, other events are still on the calendar.
We'll continue to host random events on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. However, the Stronghold event won't be among these.


๐Ÿ’ŽUpdated! Ingame Ranks

In-game ranks have been a longstanding feature, but over time, they've fallen somewhat out of sync with the current economy.
๐Ÿ“‰ A decrease in pricing.
To tackle this issue, we've taken measures to adjust the costs associated with each in-game rank.
These changes are intended to better match the current economy, ensuring that the progression and acquisition of ranks are in line with the overall in-game experience.


๐Ÿ”‘Updated! Crates

We've completely changed the crate system and all the prizes inside.
You can now look forward to discovering all-new rewards.
We've added lots of exciting, rare items and kept the popular ones that everyone likes.



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.

โ“Question and Answers
Why did 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 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 claims
  • Player level & premium reward pass
  • All items in your inventory and ender chest
  • Any currencies such as money and exp
  • Chatcolor permissions.
