    Hey everyone,

    After a fun and interesting pre-season, we've taken the feedback and suggestions from the community to release the first official season of OP Factions, coming out Sunday the 23rd at 3PM EST.

    Season Information
    Season: OP Factions Season 1
    Duration: 8 weeks (2 months)
    • Week #1 of this season will be in SOTW Mode.
    • Week #2-7 will be fully enabled for raiding.
    • Week #8 will contain special end-of-season events, along with calculations of the F-Top winners.
    Upon reset, the following will not be transferred:

    - All worlds and builds
    - McMMO levels

    Note: if you have any issues with purchases please make a Purchase Support Ticket.

    Updates

    Bosses
    Alongside the server's other automatic and hosted events, special mob bosses have now been scattered through the world and spawn at random times. These bosses are very difficult to kill but will reward you well. Every so often, a boss is spawned in the wilderness and the coordinates are broadcast in chat.

    Custom Enchantments
    Currently our available CEs aren't able to do one key thing: interact with both you and your faction. We'll be adding a bunch of new CEs (names and info announced on Sunday) that will boost your entire faction or specific nearby players, depending on the CE type. In addition, we'll be adding a ton more normal CEs too, to add some variety to gameplay.

    With this, we are expanding on the current item types, adding more lore-based items such as mythical swords and axes, and special types of pickaxes too. More info will be given on these items on Sunday, but most will be available in-game, with some being purchased through the store.

    Stability & Fixes
    One larger issue with this past season is that things such as F-Top calculations slow the server down heavily due to the massive amount of spawners and other items in the world. To help fix this, we've adjusted the way we calculate block values, and optimized the server in many other ways to be a lot smoother for all players.

    Two of the larger changes we've made to help this are:
    Stacked Spawners - You can now stack multiple spawners of the same mob type within 1 block, instead of having a massive array of spawners. This not only helps the server's performance but makes it much easier to have powerful bases using less space.
    Chunk Anchors - These special blocks can be obtained through the store or in-game, and basically act as a player - they keep whatever chunk they are placed in fully loaded for however long you have set the Anchor to be. These can replace alt accounts in many cases, but alt accounts are still fully allowed and Chunk Anchors are simply another option for everyone to use if they wish.

    This isn’t a full list of all changes made in the reset. A full comprehensive list of all changes made will be posted in changelog after the reset has gone live.

    F-Top
    As with each factions reset, we are happy to award the top three factions with Gift Card prizes to use towards the entire network. Faction leaders of each faction will need to message me (@Rasturize#0001) on Discord to claim their rewards. Rewards are distributed to all faction members.
    #1 Tesla - Deathnight7976 - $28,853,068,720
    #2 Herbal - BigFatTurkey - $12,987,244,840
    #3 OutLaw - Nebulae__ - $12,582,201,790
    Note: “alt” factions are not counted towards f top.
    F-Top calculation will be done just prior to the server reset.

    On top of receiving the Gift Cards, the winners will also receive exclusive tags representing their current position. Access these tags using /tags.

    It should be noted that if you have an active permanent ban on your account, you are ineligible to receive not only these rewards, but any rewards given out from resets.

    As always, any purchased ranks and items will be given back if they were purchased within 2 weeks of the date of this announcement.

    Thanks for reading,

    Sounds like fun.
    Spawners stacking is a funny one - now people only need one chunk bases. Same raiding rules?
    Can these ces that affect nearby teammates just be a bard class? That’d be cool.

    Well, I may have just read it wrong but I don't think it will really have an effect on base size. You still would need a lot of space even with spawner stacking for a faction to get ftop.

    SOTW mode? Does that mean you can't kill people while they are building or what? Cause that would suck.

    Alt limit is the same, and dispensers are now worthless.

    This whole season is trash. Just because you named the CE that sends mined blocks directly to your inventory Telepathy when it should be named Telekinesis. Quitting factions now...
