    3/29/16 - 5:20pmEST - The network is back up and running! All servers are back up in running (except fw). Factions is in the process of a reset. This is a BETA version right now. This means that there will be bugs, glitches, and possibly some plugins that may be disabled. Please report all issues, no matter how big or small, to the Report a Bug forum! There also may be periodic reboots if work needs to be done. Thanks!

    ~MeRocks




    NOTICE: 3/19/16 - 4:00EST - We have taken down the main network to start the upgrade. There is no ETA on a completion. A temp server has been hosted for the time being which follows under Faction Rules (including mods this time).



    Ioncraft,

    Recently, as almost all of you know, Minecraft 1.9 was released. It is a major update for PvP as well as some biome changes. The server will partially be upgrading (will explain) in a few weeks once a bunch of the bugs are knocked out.

    The Partial Upgrade - At this point, Spigot (the company that makes the server files) has released a BungeeCord update as well as a 1.9 Spigot update. This Bungeecord update will allow BOTH 1.8 and 1.9 clients to join the server giving us the ability to possibly keep Factions as 1.8 and upgrading the rest of the server to 1.9. There is a possibility that we will not be able to do this (the 1.8 and 1.9 clients both joining). If that is not possible, the entire network will be upgrading to 1.9.

    Faction World Reset - At the time of updating to 1.9, we will reset the world (even if the Faction world stays 1.8). The Admin shop will be greatly nerfed to allow more player to player trading. Crates may also get a revamp. The server will also switch from withers to more of a cannon server. What other ideas do you all have that we can add? Please post them below.

    Please ask if you have any questions.

    Tnt can break obby, and maybe u can buy enchanted books like as in crates with a really low chance of getting a custom enchant book.

    I mean for Factions.
    Hence the cannon server. And maybe that is a possibility.

    Maybe have the same setup as crates, 3 choices each having a greater chance of a custom book.

    Okay, also something that would be cool is adding the option to combine tnt to make more powerful tnt, if that is possible.

    It would effect a lot of cannons depending on how it was used.
    It is possible just requires a plugin but we might need to test it out.
    As for the admin shop for the past 3-4 worlds 2 of which did not have an admin shop from what I saw the player market is only active during the beginning of the faction world but it could be possible to nerf it a bit like have different warps for each teir of shops and you have to unlock the next one to use it?

    Well, those shouldnt work now except for the portalling, but I guess you have to deal with that unless we allow nether claiming.

    I'm happy to hear about the admin shop nerf. The world was not survival, how a factionworld is supposed to be, but it was almost a creative server since you could buy anything you desired in no time at all.

    I think that we should stay in 1.8 for factions, but I think that keeping the wither tactics would be a good idea.
    Also, I think that the adminshop should stay the same because player-player trading could cause more people to try to scam and I think that the adminshop is good as it is.

    If we stay 1.8 it will cause problems with the other servers, and withers are way too op, it would make it more fair and having players be more strategic using cannon. And keeping admin shop has never worked, that's why we decided to nerf it, and if anyone did scam you easily report them. ( we also might get some kind of trading plugin, Idk yet)
