This is just a short post updating you on the conclusion of the recent Factions poll. As many of you may be aware, we have recently been asking you if you would like a data reset until the revamped factions comes out or to just wait. Well, I am pleased to announce that the outstanding vote was for a data reset while we wait for the New Factions to be released! With that being said we shall not hesitate to get this underway and we have a few things planned before this reset begins development.
At 4pm EST (9pm BST) tomorrow (4th September) there shall be a Drop Party, containing lots of loot held on Factions at /warp DropParty which everyone is welcome to.
Following on from that at 5pm EST (10pm BST) tomorrow, Spawn Protection will be turned off! This means PvP will be enabled everywhere at spawn as well as building and destruction permissions. Around spawn, there are also hidden chests which you will need to dig around to find as they are hidden underground, in walls and behind pillars. There will also be KoTH's held, crate key alls and a general outburst of chaos. (This does not include end or nether spawn, only overworld)
After this, at 7pm EST (Midnight for Brits) Factions will be shut down, it will undergo maintenance until the launch while things are reset and made fresh once again.
Then on Friday the 8th of September at 5pm EST (10pm BST) the new Factions shall launch - with all data reset ready for a new, but short, season.
This reset will contain little to no new features, the only new things will come from bugs being squashed and data being reset. Any questions or concerns feel free to PM us or reply below.
We hope to see you all there and look forward to the release!
