Lucky OpFac they get payouts smh. I wish they do the same to OPLS but i think i like the new OpFac
lifesteal isn't a comp or anything
why faction got pp only is because its all about skills even if you are pay to win you can still lose if you dont have a good team
now what lifesteal got almost nothing just pvp and grind
in faction you need to grind the raid as well as pvp patch side make layout print layout only normal base like 3x3 base got like 3million blocks you have to place and then mine them faction is most comp gamemode then anything
+ pika faction is more like strike war

OpFactions - PikaNetwork 2023
March 17th, 2023, 18:00 GMT / 13:00 EST / 12:00 CST / 10:00 PST

Hello, players of PikaNetwork.

As the sand in the hourglass of the previous OpFactions season runs out, we're excited to announce a mummy-laden fresh start with a full reset.
This reset marks a brand new opportunity for top factions to rise from the desert and compete in a new, more challenging environment.

We understand how important it is to deliver a stable and enjoyable gaming experience, so this season we've worked tirelessly on fixing bugs and fine-tuning existing features. Our goal was to ensure that the core gameplay runs as smoothly as a camel's hump for our players.

While we're always working on new and exciting content, this season we wanted to focus on the basics first. Our dedication to fixing bugs and improving stability has resulted in a better gaming experience.
We hope our players will enjoy the changes and feel as excited as we are to see which factions will rise to the top of the desert this season.

We are grateful for the support of our players and are excited to see what this new season of OpFactions brings. We look forward to your continued involvement in our faction server and hope you have a great time playing. Thank you!

๐Ÿ‘ช New! Faction Size
We've updated our faction roster, and we'll now be having a 10-man map instead of 20.
With this change, we hope to keep the competition as fun and exciting as possible.
We know that having a large roster can be a challenge, especially when it comes to coordinating and communicating effectively. With this new map size, we're confident that you'll have a better gameplay experience with your team and be able to focus on strategic gameplay and exciting battles.
As part of this change, we've also increased the player power, so you'll now start with 50 power instantly.
This will give you a stronger start and level the playing field for all factions.
We're excited to see how this new map size and increased player power will change the dynamics of the gameplay.
Get ready to rally your faction and rise to the top of the leaderboards.

๐Ÿšจ New! Anti Cheat
Here at PikaNetwork, we're always striving to provide our players with the best possible experience. We're thrilled to announce that we've updated our AntiCheat system to ensure a safe and fair gameplay environment once again.
We understand that stability is key, so we're working tirelessly to make sure that the AntiCheat is effective without causing any unnecessary disruptions for regular players. Moreover, we've made sure that the AntiCheat integrates flawlessly with other features, such as /printer, to prevent players from being kicked for innocent actions.
As always, we're continuously developing the AntiCheat system with updates, tweaks, and fine-tuning. However, we're confident that our latest updates are a stride in the right direction towards creating a secure and enjoyable gaming experience for all players.

๐ŸŽซ New! Lottery

We're excited to introduce this exciting addition, which gives players the chance to turn their hard-earned earnings into potentially huge rewards.
๐Ÿ’ฐ Here's how it works
Players can purchase lottery tickets at a cost, with the number of tickets bought determining their chances of winning. While the tickets may be expensive, the potential rewards are enormous, with billions of dollars up for grabs.
โฐ Fair chances for everyone
To ensure a fair chance for everyone, the lottery will take place multiple times per day, giving players multiple opportunities to buy tickets and enter the draw.
Whether you're a seasoned player or just starting out, the Lottery is the perfect way to test your luck and potentially win big.
๐ŸŒŽ Updated! Dark Zone

First and foremost, we've rebalanced the Darkzone to make it more accessible for all players.
We've adjusted the difficulty of the enemies and made it easier for solo players to take on tougher challenges.
We've also made changes to the loot drop rates, ensuring that players are rewarded for their efforts with high-quality loot that matches their level.
๐Ÿ’ Better mobs
Weโ€™ve added stackable mobs within the Dark Zone which drop nether stars. These drops will sell for a lot more in shop, and make going to Dark Zone a lot more rewarding. This will replace the current custom monsters wandering the dark zone, so after this season we will say our goodbyes to the little monkeys.
๐Ÿฆ˜ Relocated the escape portal
We have moved the escape portal to a proper floor-level location, this way players can not camp the only way out and prevent people from making their epic escape after gathering loot. We also disabled regular

๐Ÿ”‘ Updated! Crates
We've revamped the crate rewards on our server to ensure a balanced and fair reward system for all players.
Our team has worked tirelessly to ensure that every crate contains rewards that are carefully curated to fit the current state of the server economy.
We've taken steps to fix any previous errors in crate rewards to ensure that all players receive the correct rewards they deserve. Our goal is to provide a rewarding experience for players while maintaining a fair and balanced gameplay environment.
With these changes, we've made sure that every reward is meticulously chosen to fit the current state of the server economy. We want to make sure that every player feels like they're getting the rewards they deserve for their hard work.
We're confident that our updated crate reward system will provide a more enjoyable and rewarding experience for all players.
Get ready to open those crates and see what exciting new rewards await you!
๐ŸŒฟUpdated! Sugarcane Economy
We've fine-tuned the growth speed of sugar cane and buffed the sell price by a significant amount. This means that sugar cane will now be a crucial part of the grace period, and a valuable resource for factions to build up their power.
With the growth speed adjusted, players will see an increase in the rate at which sugar cane grows. This means that players can now farm more efficiently, providing them with more sugar cane to sell or use for crafting.
But that's not all - we've also significantly increased the sell price of sugar cane. This means that players will now earn a lot more money for every piece of sugar cane they sell. With this buff, sugar cane will become an even more valuable commodity in the game, providing players with a lucrative way to make money during the grace period.

๐Ÿ’พ Updated! Infinite Chest

The Infinite Chest just got even better!
We're excited to announce that we've added an option to collect TNT, and instead of selling it, it will go directly into the faction TNT bank.
๐Ÿ’ฃ Collect TNT even faster
The Infinite Chest has always been a valuable resource for factions, providing them with a steady stream of items and materials to help them rise to the top. With this latest update, we're taking it to the next level by giving factions direct access to TNT, one of the most valuable resources in the game. Now, whenever you collect TNT from the Infinite Chest, it will go directly into your faction's TNT bank. This means that you'll have more TNT available for raids, defenses, and all sorts of explosive gameplay.

๐Ÿญ Updated! Spawners

With this new reset, we will be making a change to spawner mechanics in the game.
Spawners will now gain value every 24 hours instead of every 12 hours.
Within these 24 hours you will now gain doubled what you would get every 12 hours, so the growth has stayed the same, however it now takes 24 hours rather than 12.

This alteration was implemented to address concerns of players using shields to protect their spawners constantly, making it impossible for others to raid them and win biweekly faction top rewards. With the new mechanic, players will not be able to shield indefinitely while their spawners gain value, promoting fair competition and balanced gameplay.
โš™๏ธFixed! Bugs
We did our best to polish and fix 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 boss lootbag not giving rewards on skipping animation.

  • Fixed lag backs with bow boosting.
  • Fixed some seasonal crate rewards having wrong displays.
๐Ÿ“‘ 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:
  • Updated AntiCheat.
  • Updated some styling.
  • Updated payouts menu.
  • Added a permission to access the /f vault.
  • Removed the cooldown on /chunkinfo.
  • Added logs for starting and ending a raid in /f logs.
  • Made all shockwave tools have Efficiency 10
