    Factions Season 16
    Saturday the 27th of June @ 3PM EST
    [​IMG]
    Map
    • New Spawn designed by Apex
    • New Outposts designed by Buck
    • All new KOTH Arenas by Witha and Buck
    • New 1 chunk spawn point by Buck
    • Overworld is once again a completely normal world (without lava), except the 40x40 chunk warzone which is all custom terrain designed by Aiqw
    • 2 additional flat worlds (1.5k) have been added giving us 12 total corners
    • Build team for this season: Apex, Aiqw, Buck, Ezzerland, t3mptr3s, Witha
    • World Border set to no longer cut through the middle of a chunk
    Gameplay
    • Several enhancements to cannon functionality as well as many new optimizations to the server jar itself
    • Explosion size reduced to 5 blocks instead of 7
    • Mob Stacking has been redone and thoroughly enhanced.
    • Spawner Stacks now go to 10 spawners per stack. We have also dropped our previous plugin for this and coded our own.
    • Mob AI is disabled on mobs that spawn from spawners as well as creepers spawned from eggs (attempted this last season but it was bugged, all those bugs have since been fixed)
    • Blazes take no knockback
    • E-pearls no longer pass through String
    • Attempting to teleport to a home that is not in a faction claim that is not allied will result in the home being deleted (no more using homes to inside factions you were kicked from/left)
    • Sugar Cane no longer automatically sells
    • Pistons can no longer push sugar cane. Automated Cane Farms are now a strike-worthy offense
    • The /Kits have been completely redone
    • /f shield duration changed to 8 hours (hours shield can start updated to still maintain peak hours not having shield coverage)
    • Str 2 has been re-added
    • /wild disabled for the first hour of season.

    F-Top Calculations
    • Spawners must be placed in and remain in claimed land for 24 hours in order to count toward F-Top value. If unclaimed, the spawners must be broken and placed in claimed land to count. Just claiming the land the spawners are in will no longer count toward F-Top. (Not different from last season, just a reminder)
    • F-Top now finds the chunk with the most value and only counts value within a 10 chunk radius so ALL value must be within 10 chunks of your highest value chunk (down from last seasons 20 chunk search).
    • F-Top Updates Hourly
    Rules
    • Raid Cannons now have a 20 wall max buffer
    • If your Raid Cannon is destroyed, you must wait 30 minutes before you may start another cannon
    • Blowing up your own spawners during a raid is now Strike worthy
    • For more detailed information see Faction Rules

    This is so important it’s unimaginable.
    Make sure no ai creepers still float
    Also by readding strength 2 and not doing anything to the damage ces you just made capping koth impossible

    Well let's see how it goes with strength 2 for a few days. I'd rather have people actually dying than getting low and being able to run away since strength 1 does no damage :((
    Also are u playing this map please i need a new dupe buddy fuseh doesnt want to be mine

    We did research into this but never came up with a source that could justify doing it. Especially since it's so easy to find underground bases. Have a clearer suggestion?


    Also, I just added this to the change log because I forgot about it, but /wild will also be disabled for the first hour of the season.

    Underground bases are not easy to find, especially if they are not spawner based. Nobody will store items in their base anymore because its going to be VERY hard to search 3 worlds for underground bases.
    --- Post merged ---
    First few days might go well but as soon as somebody gets their hands on the ces its practically over. Last season if you get lucky strike and rage could kill you through gapple with strength 1 but now its going to be very common to get killed through a gapple if they have those specific CEs.
