    Factions Season 18
    Saturday the 10th of April @ 3PM EST
    [​IMG]

    Hey guys!

    Thanks for the patience while we worked on this update!

    The factions RULES thread has been updated. Please review these and posts questions/feedback here in this thread. These rule changes include many things, so if you plan on competing, read them thoroughly. There were many rule updates this season.


    General
    + New Pirate themed world (Credit to the Feedback team for theming the season).
    + Builds (spawn, warzone, outpost) designed by the IJAH Build Team
    + Migrated to a new Spigot Core (WineSpigot) with improved cannon features and functionality
    + Grace period will last 7 days. Season will last 3 weeks.
    + /ftop now updated to perform /f who on click of faction. /f top should also now work for /ftop (works either way)
    + /f waypoint added as an alternate command of /f show
    + /f upgrades have seen some tweaks to make all upgrades beneficial/worthwhile (and fix some typos).
    + /f tntbank max capacity lowered by 500 mil (new tnt bank upgrades part of above update)
    + Faction size now set to 10 players (down from 25) with /f upgrades to bring it to a max of 15.
    + You can no longer change your faction name after grace ends, so be sure you finalize it before it's too late!
    + Faction leaders now get notified when they log in if their faction does not have a shield set up
    + Faction Shields now last for 10 hours. As a reminder, ALL faction shields are disabled between 12:00 and 16:00 EST every day (you cannot choose a shield time that offers coverage for these hours).
    + Max Faction Power increased to 2.5k
    + Roam no longer tracks y axis, just x and z.
    + Sandbots should now despawn properly at server close, but if not, should also be able to right-click them and make them despawn.
    + Sandbots now take money from faction bank instead of needing to input money to the bot itself
    + Sandbots now despawn if they get moved from their spawned location (for example, if they fall)
    + Server store packages have been reworked (Credit to Feedback team for helping finalize shop changes)
    + Collector Beacons increased in /shop price to $75k
    + TNT Wands now work with Collector Beacons
    + Middle-Clicking TNT from inside the Collector Beacon menu now sends tnt to the factions tnt bank
    + Cactus no longer produces after grace ends (so all cactus farms will only work during grace, only while in claimed land, and only if a collector beacon is present).
    + Mob drop prices in /shop were doubled to make spawner-grinders twice as productive as last season.
    + Spawners can now only be placed within a 10 chunk radius of your most valuable chunk. Value can no longer be split into multiple locations.
    + Spawners cannot be placed in raiding outpost world.
    + Mining Spawners now gives the spawners back but costs 80% of the spawners value
    + Raiding Outpost world now fully resets every day AND every time the outpost is breached. Faction claims remain, but all builds/destruction will be wiped and everyone on the world will be teleported to spawn until the wipe is complete.
    + KOTH now happens 5x per day and gives 3 keys per event.
    + World3 has been removed.
    + World2 border moved to 1k blocks (from 1.5k)
    + World 2 block height set to 30 (from 65)
    + Overworld border moved to 5k blocks (from 7.5k)
    + Both Overworld and World2 borders end at full chunks, so no partial chunk claims for facs!
    + Added a 4x4 chunk Straight-Line Cane Schematic to the Schematic Generators

    Rules
    + New Rule about Rev cannons. Rev Cannons that can be fired at any y level and still nuke up to 255 (makes patching impossible) are not allowed.
    + New Rule about Outpost World. Raiding Outpost is an event world. It cannot be used for base claims or farms.
    + Rule change about spawner boxes and limitations
    + Corner claims and Oceaning rules now only apply during grace period (to match bitch claim rules)
    + Rule change about raid claims (limitations in place for claim sizes and amount of claims)
    + Cannon Speed to 3s (down from 4s)
    + Lockdown Abuse/Protection rules have been clarified. Protection works similar to shields. Can prep to raid during protection but cannot fire.

    Be sure to double check rules before season starts. 1-2 changes have been made since the announcement has gone live (for improved wording on spawners boxes)

    @Ezzerland WHERE IS/f target or what happened to the faction war you were talking about a while ago where we teleport into a different world and vs a faction. and do we still claim faction name claiming where do I claim my name?
