Hi everyone,

I am making this post to let everyone know what happened recently and why it happened, regarding the shop exploit and the players who are permanently banned for abusing it.

The shops on Factions & Skyblock recently got updated: prices were changed and sell-all buttons were added. This was a huge change and unfortunately the prices had some issues, you were able to buy some items for cheap, craft them, and sell them again for loads of money. This was obviously a bug in the shop.

Thanks to some honest players who reported these bugs we were able to patch them quite quickly. Unfortunately though, there were still some players who exploited these bugs in the shop to their advantage and they were able to make millions within minutes.

Every transaction in the shop is logged and after patching the bugs in the shops we started collecting usernames of players who abused these bugs on a huge scale, all of the players who abused the bugs were permanently banned with the reason 'Major Dupe Abuse'.

I hope this clears up some confusion between players, and that we did not just ban players 'because they had a lot of money' but based on evidence from logs.

If you find a bug, please tell a staff member, do not exploit it because you will be banned.

Hey everyone,

Thanks for participating to the purge event again! We have a great community which goes to show once again. This season will last for 180 days again, we are planning to make the next purge more competitive somehow.

Here is my image album of this purge: http://imgur.com/a/e7kJA

Season 3 changes
New enchants
  • Plasma I - III - Like electrocute, but for diamond and leather armor. (Deals more damage.)
  • Agility I - III - Adds haste when holding a weapon.
  • Insulation I - III - Combats Plasma and Electrocute. (Makes them deal less damage.)

Faction wars

If you wish to have a fair fight against another Faction, you can now do so with a Faction war, There are two gamemodes available.. KOTH (King of the hill) and BLITZ:
  • KOTH (King of the hill)
    • The hill is marked with a beacon. It starts off as "Unclaimed". First player to get near it starts "Conquering" it for his team. If at any certain point of the conquer there are no players from that team nearby the conquer stops. After it's conquered it begins to give x points per second to the "king" team, regardless of whether they are nearby or not. If players from the other team get nearby, they start contesting the hill. If they succeed, the hill switches place and is set to "Unclaimed" again.
  • BLITZ
    • Each player starts with a configurable amount of lives. Each time they die they lose one, once they reach 0 they're out of the game. Last team with players alive wins.
To start a faction war against another faction (both of you need at least 3 players online) type /f war challenge <faction> (Type /f warp for help), Select the gamemode with the paper and click the players who should participate.
The enemy faction will have to accept the request, then you will all be teleported inside the arena and have the ability to select one of the 3 fair...

Hey everyone,

The Factions season is about to end, and to celebrate the reset we will be having the purge event again! For those who were not there at the last purge event (Season 1), I will be shortly explaining what will be going down..

Two hours before the server will reset, the event will start.
24 hours before the event starts, the server MOTD (in your server list) will show a countdown timer so you exactly know when the event is about to go down.
When the timer hits 0 and the event begins, the Factions server will restart and after the restart the following changes will be effective:
  • Factions claims will be disabled - so you can grief anyone.
  • Everyone online will receive $500,000 in-game money.
  • The world border will slowly come closer to the spawn for 90 minutes.
In the final 30 minutes the world border will be just around the spawn area, and the following will happen:
  • All spawn protection will be removed.
  • PvP will be allowed throughout the spawn area.
  • You will receive rare crate keys ocasionally.
  • Mobs such as ghasts and withers will be spawned.

After those final 30 minutes, the server will shut down to make room for a new, reset server.
The following will be reset:
  • The world map
  • Your inventory, enderchest, vanilla levels, set homes, money/balance and mcMMO levels
  • All Factions, claims, fhomes and everything else faction related
  • Auction house
You will not lose your points, server level or your friends list.

The exact date and time of the purge season 2 will be:
Sunday 29 January 2017, 4PM GMT

I hope to see you all at the purge event!
