    This Factions season is nearing it's end again, and we have some information regarding the future seasons.

    Starting with the upcoming season, we will stop naming the seasons with a number, but instead with the actual season. The upcoming season will be the 'Winter' season and the seasons will last about 3 months each.

    The Purge event will start Saturday, November 23rd, 00:00 GMT.

    The Event
    The entire event is separated in 4 stages.
    You will be informed on the time until the next stage by titles on your screen.
    • Stage 1 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.
    • Stage 2 the world border will slowly shrink 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.
    • Stage 3 the world border will be around the spawn, so all players will be too. There is a short pause until the next stage... time for everyone to get together with their friends and factions to prepare for the final stage! Teaming is allowed so be careful!
    • Final Stage this will be the most important part of the event! During the final stage 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! Nobody can join the server during the final stage.
    The last man standing will win a $250 webshop giftcard.

    A few things to note during...
    All stages...
    Teaming is allowed
    The End & Nether worlds will be disabled
    Flying will be disabled
    You can join and leave the server up until the final stage
    Cheaters will be permanently banned without excuse
    McMMO abilities will be disabled
    Stage 1...
    Lasts for about 15 minutes until Stage 2
    The Factions plugin will be disabled (no protection)
    Stage 2...
    Lasts for about 20 minutes until Stage 3
    The border will shrink to spawn during these 20 minutes
    Being outside of the border kills you fast, type /spawn to teleport out
    Stage 3...
    Lasts for about 2 and a half minutes until the Final Stage.
    The border is around spawn
    You can access ender chests/vaults for the last time
    When this stage is over you will not be able to use any commands
    Final Stage...
    Does not have a set ending time. Will go on until there is 1 player left
    Purposely hiding/stalling/avoiding to fight will get you disqualified (instakilled)
    Repair tokens will be disabled
    You will not be able to use any commands at all
    The border slowly shrinks after some time
    You can not drop items and items are not dropped on death​

    I hope everyone will have fun and enjoy the new season(s).

    Any chance we could get the time moved to where people in the usa would be out of school or do it saturday? Just a thought for the attendance of the event.

    Could the time maybe be moved to later? A lot of people are in school at that time and it removes a lot of the competition that would make it exciting!

    I was expecting this question, but unfortunately that is not possible due to a tight schedule. I need to reset Factions as soon as possible and am unable to move it any further away. I'm very sorry.

    I agree with hatntops everyone in the States with either work or school wont be able to attend to the event so if we move it to Saturday mid-day that would be the maximum show for the purge. This is just an idea, also I will be in school

    The reset will be right after.

    The Purge event will occur more often after this one, so in 3 months you will be able to attend one on a saturday again :)

    @Bas Awesome! With that being said will there be any changes to the pace of the game because 3 months is short to setup grinders with the way spawner picks and crates are at the moment?

    There won't be many changes the upcoming season, but i'm going to look to see where I can adjust for the upcoming seasons. I haven't been very up-to-date with Factions recently.

    @Bas I would love to speak with you about some of the main gameplay issues if you are open to hearing me out. I have compiled a good list with possible fixes etc.
