    So basically long enough that a person can't just /back instantly and be annoying?

    Thing with ./back is you want your items before they despawn but adding deathbans limits it but to be honest I prefer death bans even for a short 10-20 mins.

    The death ban is only on PvP. It would allow the killer to get the other players stuff before they were able to come back.

    Ah! Yes! Let's just forever remain in 1.8. That will solve everything.
    Rather than inventing new cannons or using one of many that still work, you'd rather stay in the safety bubble that is 1.8.

    Why learn the new mechanics when you can just grumble about Mojang "ruining factions" and the kids on your lawn

    ^ I referred to having 1.7 which we can't have (simply isn't possible)
    1. You guys have no idea how much work goes into cannons people spend hours on them (it involves a lot of physics, maths and people actually pay for private lessons for these things) yea you can make a simple hybrid cannon/slime cannon but what it hardly goes beyond 50 blocks and takes hours to stack sand where as I can make multiple walls all 255-256 y in a few minutes.
    2. Wither is for lazy people who have no skill to raid it doesn't take much effort to use a wither and this is what has led to the excessive amount of unclaimed bases on IonCraft. The main way to stop withers is to have an end base with a massive gap which we can not have on IonCraft because of claiming issues and for this we need a big end space but seriously we do not have the sufficient amount of players for these bases.
    3. What you seem to not realise is that learning the new mechanics isn't hard and yes we know that but the thing is that "walls" and methods have been created to stop certain cannons which are unaffected by these changes where as the main cannon mechanics have been changed to stop the cannons which can bypass these walls.
    I have a simple solution to this but might require more time for the reset (to be honest I lost my patience a long time ago for this world) so I don't really care which version it is.

    I'm not a big fan of having it be a hardcore faction world... but it might be cool to try.
    Maybe the temp-ban-for-death thing can be turned off if people don't like it?

    Ooh!
    Some kind of (most likely) single-use buff that is expensive enough that it will only be used a few times ever. XD

    I like it!

    Multiple ways to do this
    Crate keys
    Admin Shop (wish we had a custom coder who made it so they would stack and get rid of one each time you died)
    Like a cheap 50p off the donation store depending on the situation like being raided someone might buy it (don't kill me for it yet because it might not even be EULA compliant).

    I think Dani was suggesting a buff thing that can be bought in the Admin Shop to bypass the death-ban.

    Also, did anyone else experience lag in the old Faction spawn, or was that just me?

    Not really if the perk was one time and bought for a small loan of a billion ions (could be a lot but I haven't seen the economy yet so meh).

    Fps lag. Sorry.

    And it wasn't my ping. I'm just wondering, because my computer can't handle a lot of blocks for some reason. *remembers his computer is older than many of the players on Ioncraft*
