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...
