This Factions season is already coming to an end and it is time to announce our seasonal event that comes with the reset of Factions. The purge this season will be the same as the purge last season, with some minor adjustments and improvements. This is how it will go down... the entire event will last around one hour, separated in 4 stages: The first 10 minutes all Faction claim protections will be disabled, meaning you can finally steal all those items from that large Faction you were never able to raid... or this could be the time for you to defend your beloved base to prevent others from getting your items! This will also be the time to get your best items from your base, because you can no longer access it later. The next 30 minutes the world border will come closing in until it is around the spawn area.. it is not wise to die during this period because you might not be able to get new items from your base for the final fight. Spawn will be a safe area during this time. The next 5 minutes will be a short pause... time for everyone to get together with their friends and factions to prepare for the final stage! Teaming is allowed so be careful! The final stage will be the most important part of the event so pay attention. Exactly at the final stage mark PVP will be turned on everywhere, there are no places to hide! If you die during the final stage you will respawn in spectator gamemode meaning you can not get back into the fight, so be very careful on what you do. Nobody can join the server during the final stage. The last man standing will win $250 (webshop coupon) Any players stalling (not fighting) if they are the last people alive will be disqualified from the event. A few things to note during the final hour Teaming during the purge is allowed mcMMO will be enabled but all abilities will be disabled Throwing XP bottles will be disabled (So mending is quite useless) The End and Nether worlds will be disabled Players caught hacking during the purge will be PERMANENTLY banned You will not be able to fly Players who are hiding in underground places at spawn (somehow) are disqualified The event will take place Saturday the 9th of February at these local times: GMT Time: 3:00 PM or 15:00 England: 3:00 PM or 15:00 The Netherlands/France/Germany/Norway/Sweden: 4:00 PM or 16:00 New York/Florida: 10:00 AM California: 7:00 AM New Zealand: 4:00 AM Australia: 02:00 AM A countdown timer is visible in the server MOTD.
