Today we are announcing that the new season of Factions will be released TOMORROW (July 10th) after the event (explained below).
We have seen a lot of suggestions to host an end of season event. After discussing this in the team, we have decided to host the following event: Last Man Standing.
This event will be somewhat similar to The Purge event but much simpler, here is how it will go down:
- The event will start at the exact time indicated at the bottom of this post;
- From the moment it starts the following will happen:
- Factions will be completely disabled;
- Golden apples will be completely disabled;
- Repair Tokens will be disabled;
- McMMO will be disabled;
- The End and Nether worlds will be disabled.
- Once the border reaches spawn the following will happen:
- PVP is instantly enabled on spawn;
- The server whitelist will be turned on so you can't rejoin the server;
- All command usage will be disabled;
- If you die, you will respawn in spectator gamemode (that means: Game Over);
- Player drops and dropping items will be disabled;
- Flying will be disabled;
- The fight will go on until there is only one man standing.
If you are the last man standing you will receive a $100 dollar store gift card!
We have decided within the team that we won’t be handing out the faction prizes this season because of the dupes and exploits this season. BUT we will be making this up for the next season, where there WILL be prizes to win.
After the event ends, we will be releasing the reworked factions server. Next season there will be a few changes:
- We fixed a lot of dupes and exploits;
- The harvesting tools have been completely revamped and should now work properly;
- We fixed and completely revamped the trench pickaxes and they should now also work properly;
- There will be a KoTH event that runs every 2 hours, you need to capture it for 15 minutes to win;
- We have added Sand Gen Buckets back for $2000 each (/gen shop);
- The inquisitive enchant has been fixed;
- There are various other small changes and fixes and we will be continuing to do this during this season.
Time stamps for the Last Man Standing event:
- England: 4:00 PM or 16:00
- The Netherlands/France/Germany/Norway/Sweden: 5:00 PM or 17:00
- New York/Florida: 11:00 AM
- California: 8:00 AM
We hope to see you tomorrow!
