March 2nd 2019, 3PM EST / 12PM PST / 8PM GMT
The time has finally arrived! I am excited to be able to officially announce today that Factions Comet will be releasing on Saturday, March 2nd at 3PM EST / 12PM PST / 8PM GMT!
We have loads of new content and important updates for you guys, I will list them all below so be sure to check them out
- Overworld 10k by 10k
- Nether 5k by 5k
- End 5k by 5k
Starting on the first Saturday after the grace period ends, at 6pm EST every Saturday a snapshot of the top 3 Factions will be taken. The Map will last 4 weeks.
#1 - $180 PayPal + $180 Buycraft
#2 - $100 PayPal + $100 Buycraft
#3 - $50 PayPal + $50 Buycraft
Faction leaders must set their paypal with the /setpaypal command in-game to ensure no delays in payouts.
Welcome to the Battle Zone! A intense no exit arena for the competitive players wanting a true way to fight without traps and escapes. The Battle Zone will only have a select few exit portals that you must stand in for a set period of time before being able to exit the arena. This arena will have custom higher-tier supply drops as well as a KOTH. The Battle Zone will also contain 15-minute long death bans.
While in Free Roam, you will be able to view enemy spawners, chests, hoppers, and other important items. You will not be able to see players or other entities. There will also be a villager which spawns in your original location, which on death, will also kill your player.
Faction missions are server missions you can compete with other factions and whichever faction wins gets various prizes! You can access the mission menu by typing /f mission.
To deal with factions that have been repeatedly known to violate our cannon rules as-well as violate our server rules we are implementing Faction strikes. The punishment system is as follows:
- First strike - Warning
- Second strike - 15% decrease in F-Top Value
- Third strike - Faction disband
Check up on your factions balance by doing /f status to see a more detailed breakdown of what’s happening with your faction!
After seeing the success and enjoyment players have had with Coin Flips and Rock Paper Scissors, we have decided to expand on this by removing our old lottery system and replacing it with two new casino games!
Introducing jackpot and crate-key jackpot! Now rather than only competing in jackpots with in-game currency you can enter a specific prize pool of crate keys! Any key purchased from the store or obtained in-game can be used to bet and compete against other players.
F-Top Calculation changes
Due to problems in past maps with players placing spawners in the last few hours to claim payouts and then mining all their spawners again we have implemented a new system to prevent spawners from adding to a factions F-Top Value for the first 24 hours after being placed. This means factions will be forced to keep their value placed and have to risk being raided to be able to claim a F-Top Reward.
New Custom Enchants
During the last few maps, we have made no changes to our custom enchants. We will now be adding new enchants to give players a new play experience.
- Lowered MCMMO Swords / Axes cap
- Reduced the price of Spawner Upgrades
- Fixed Issue sometimes causing envoys not to spawn
- Improved support to our custom jar for cannons
- Improved connection support for players
- Patched a dupe glitch caused by some custom items
- Fixed Trench pickaxes bypassing regions
- Fixed Coin Flips incorrectly checking how much money a player had
- And some more secret backend ones
Finally, I want to thank all of you for sticking with us and continuing to support the server. We’re excited for what the future holds for Vortex and hope you will all join us on Saturday to check out the new Factions Comet release!
See you on Saturday!
