Factions Information

All of the important information required for this map are listed below:

Players per faction: 30 Man
Power per player: 100
Alts per faction: 50
Force Invites: ENABLED
Allies: DISABLED
Buffer limit: 30 Chunks



Base Design Competition
We want everyone to put a lot of effort into this map regarding there base designs. We will be giving out buycraft rewards for the Factions with the best base design. Both the Staff Team and the Players will vote on which base they like the most. This includes interiors and exteriors so don't forget to make a roof art as well.

Custom Enchants
After much discussion with the community and various factions, we've decided that custom enchants on Factions need to be both useful and basic. So we've gone back to our very old system of custom enchants. However we have added some of the newer enchants in to spice things up a little bit.



Events
For this upcoming map we will have a lot of exciting and new planned. Some of the events are: Raid Events, Sumo, 1v1 Tournaments, 2v2 Tournaments, Faction Tournaments, Maze, Kill The King, Spleef, Connect 4, Chess, Dropper, LMS, Thimble, KoTH and Conquest. These will all be hosted by Event Manager UrMa, so if you ever have any questions or suggestions about any events don't feel afraid to message him.

Faction Drain
Faction Drain is a new feature that we have added to Factions. This allows Faction Leaders to be able to take away the balances of their offline recruits and members. Whether that's only a specific player or all of the recruits or all of the members. This feature will come with logs as well so it will prevent players who try to get away abusing this new system.

Grace Period
We have added a section on the scoreboard which will allow players to see how much longer grace period has left until TNT is enabled. It will be displayed by a timer, such as the one shown below.

Herbalism Top
Players will now be able to compete for this new leader board on the server! The top three players on this leader board at the end of each week will be awarded various buycraft prizes for their extreme effort and dedication! All it obviously takes to win herbalism levels is punch the cane all day! The winner of each week will gain access too an exclusive tag only obtained from this competition.

Lottery
Lottery is another new feature that we have added to Factions. It will allow players to purchase tickets and put them into a lottery. After a certain period of time it will spin through each player who is entered into the lottery and they will win the massive jackpot of money that everyone has put in. However sometimes no one will win, and it will get added to the house. Each time a lottery is rolled and no one wins it will be added to this massive jackpot that a lucky player will be able to win.



Merged Castle & Outpost
We have decided to merge castle and outpost into it's own entity known as "Castle". Which will include the features of the outpost shop integrated with the boost from having it capped and the mobs underneath that give amazing rewards. There will be a warp to castle and it will be located in a boxed in arena so that players cannot escape and have to fight to the every end. It will create a lot bigger focus on Castle as a pvp-based area with amazing rewards for beating your enemies.

New Keys & Crates
All of the current Monthly Crates and Crate Keys have been completely removed. We've added in Keys in place of Crate Keys and we've added in Crates in place of Monthly Crates. There have been new crates and keys added. All of the rewards from each of them have been buffed tremendously.

Potion Effects
Potion Effects is another new feature which will be available as a perk from having a certain rank or purchasing it straight off of the buycraft instead. This will allow you to do a command and you will permanent have that certain potion effect enabled at all times. An example of this would be doing "/wb or /waterbreathing" to give yourself the Water Breathing effect permanently.

Reworked Tab
Instead of seeing a bunch of faction alts on the tab like it currently is. It will now show players with the highest ranks alongside with their faction names beside them. All of the alts and players in wilderness will be moved all the way to the other end of the tab.



Spawners in Dark Zone
The only real purpose of Dark Zone is to either go there for drops or every weekend for conquest. So we've decided to implement an entirely new strategy in how you make money. This will be a pvp based way on earning a lot of money with a very large risk involved. There will be spawners placed randomly around Dark Zone. These certain spawners will drop very rare items which can be sold on the shop for a very high price.



Spawner Value
Another main issue we've had in the past is factions placing down there spawners a day before payout and claiming the rewards from faction top. Then mining all of their spawners and hiding them until the next weeks payout. So we've implemented a new feature which will allow your spawners to gain a % of their value over a certain amount of time. So they will all start at 10% on faction top and then every 12 hours it will increase by 10%. By the end of a five day period that spawner will be worth 100% of it's value on faction top.

I agree with xzorexx. This update is poop. You just took out the whole reason heroic was popular which was smaller factions had a chance. Now you have to have a full roster or there is zero point in playing because you will be offline raided. Good job ruining the factions aspect of vanity.
