    Update: We've run into some unexpected issues with some of the core faction plugins that means we're unable to release at this time. We'll have more info soon.

    Update #2: We'll be working on fixing the above issues and release will be Sunday, the same time as originally stated, just one day later.

    Hey everyone,

    OP Factions is one of the longest standing servers on NemeGaming, and we have spent countless hours honing its ability to provide a fast-paced & competitive experience for all. This reset will be a little different from our normal system, read below for information on our new “Seasons” system.

    Server Seasons
    From this point forwards, OP Factions will enter a defined Seasons system. This means that from the date of the reset, the entire schedule of the season will be available to view, along with our plans and updates during this time.

    As we have just introduced this system, this season of OP Factions will be considered a Pre-Season. This means that we will use this season to make changes and improvements to the Seasons system as a whole, along with improving the server and its experience for all players.

    Season Information
    Season: OP Factions Pre-Season 1
    Duration: 8 weeks (2 months)
    • Week #1 of this season will be in SOTW Mode (see “Faction Changes”).
    • 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:
    - Inventories
    - Ender Chests
    - Player Vaults
    - All worlds and builds
    - McMMO levels
    - In-game currency
    - In-game ranks
    - All factions data

    As usual, the following will be transferred:
    - Paid donor ranks
    - Paid donor commands
    Note: if you have any issues with purchases please make a Purchase Support Ticket.


    Crate Updates
    As seen on many servers, we have now added Monthly Crates. Similar to our normal crate system, these limited time crates can be purchased from the store. They can contain a variety of rewards, such as limited time items, perks, tags, and much more. These crates also contain our new “random item” special bundles. These items give you a chance to earn potentially multiple powerful items in one go, with a random chance at each. The items contained within these bundles are changed with each Monthly Crate.


    In addition to the Monthly Crate, we have added two new crate types: KoTH & Factions. Instead of directly being given rewards for capturing a KoTH, you will now be given keys to obtain rewards from the crate. These rewards can vary from OP items to Monthly Crates. The Factions crate contains tons of tools and bundles useful to improving your faction, such as Harvester Hoes, Crop/Mob Hoppers, and Chunk Busters.

    1.8 Native Server
    Similar to our other PvP-focused servers (KitPvP currently), we have moved OP Factions to native 1.8. You will still be able to connect using any version of your choosing, but this means that server-side calculations and mechanics are smoother and geared towards a factions experience. This also allows us to fix issues with cannons and move from a wither server to a full cannon server. It also changes PvP, making it cleaner and more enjoyable in terms of potions, hit detection and knockback, to name a few. Finally, it allows us to modify your experience on the packet level, with features such as FPS Assist (more info in “New Factions Features”).

    New Factions Features
    With cannoning returning, we have upgraded our Factions plugins to help enhance your experience. Among these include new features, and fixes/updates to many of the well known factions commands we are all used to.

    For Factions Members:
    • /f logins - Allows you to view when members of your faction connect or disconnect.
    • /f coords - Broadcast your current coordinates to your faction members.
    • /f tntfill & /f tnt - These commands have been added to use with the new “TNT Bank”. Along with your usual factions bank, you can now deposit TNT to be used by your entire faction for raiding. This TNT can simply be stored, but also used to fill dispensers for cannons without ever having to touch the TNT yourself.
    • /f chest - A virtual chest that your entire faction can access.
    • /f seechunk - Similar to HCF claiming, you can use this command to see a visual representation of chunks near you.
    • /f upgrades - Replacing our previous factions levels system, you can now upgrade the following for your entire faction: Crop Growth Speed, EXP Drop Rate, Spawner Spawn Rates, Faction Chest Size.
    • /f vault - Similar to the chest system above, this vault must be placed inside of your faction territory, and can be accessed anytime using the command.
    For Factions Leadership:
    • /f inspect - This useful command allows you to view any changes to blocks (breaking and placing) made in your territory.
    • /f rule - You can now create rules for your faction.
    • /f warp - Faction leaders can create warps (similar to faction homes) that can be accessed by their members. These warps can be password protected, allowing only members of your choice to access them.
    • /factionalerts - This command can be edited by the faction leader only, and allows specific ranks to view the following information in your claims: TNT placement, explosions of any kind, and spawner placement/breaking.
    Faction Flight
    Although we have had issues in the past with faction flight, we have now merged our flight system directly into Factions, fixing any previous issues. This flight system will automatically enable when you enter your territory, or based on your purchases, be enabled regardless of territory (other than enemy).

    FPS Assist
    As we all know, massive raids, farms, and cannons can be very laggy for players. We’ve worked to add a system for players without top-tier PCs to be able to play just as well as any other.
    All players can now toggle the following:
    • Visibility of moving sand
    • TNT entities
    • Crop drops
    • Piston animations
    • Mobs
    • Spawner blocks
    • Chests
    • Hoppers
    • Particles

    New Tool Types
    Our current factions tools can greatly assist with building your faction quickly and painlessly - such as Chunk Busters and Shock Wave Pickaxes. However, we wanted to expand greatly on these tools to make all aspects of factions more straightforward for all players.

    Tool Changes
    • Shock Wave pickaxes have been renamed to Trench pickaxes.
    • Void Chests are now player based instead of faction based.
    Tool Additions
    • Along with normal 1x1 Chunk Busters, we have added multiple tiers of Chunk Busters that allow you to destroy huge amounts of terrain at once.
    • Sand Wand: Upon interaction with a sand block, 10 blocks of sand located directly below will be removed as well.
    • Craft Wand: Upon interaction with a container, all nuggets and ingots will be converted into their relative blocks.
    • Sell Wand: Upon interaction with a container, all sellable items will be sold.
    • Lightning Wand: Upon interaction with a creeper, it will become charged.
    • Smelt Wand: Upon interaction with a container, all ores will be converted into their smelted forms.
    • Ice Wand: Upon interaction with a block, all ice within a radius will be melted.
    • Wall Wand: Upon interaction, a cobblestone wall will be built directly based on your direction.
    • Platform Wand: Upon interaction, a cobblestone platform will be built directly underneath you.
    • Harvester Hoe & Axe: Upon harvesting a crop it will either be transferred directly to your inventory or sold based on the current mode.
    • Tray Pickaxe: Upon breaking an obsidian block, based on your direction two netherrack blocks on either side of the broken block will be removed as well.
    • Hopper Filter: Upon clicking a hopper, you will be able to filter items that will not be able to travel through it.
    • Crop/Mob Hoppers: These hopper types will collect specific drops based on their type in an entire chunk.
    Outpost Event
    This loved factions event will now join OP Factions as an automatic event. Similar to a KoTH, this capture point will be always able to be “controlled” by a faction. The controlling faction will gain access to special perks such as an McMMO booster, a monetary reward, and infinite potion effects. However, any faction will be able to contest this faction for control of the outpost at any time. Once a faction gains 100% control of the outpost, the rewards are theirs for the duration of their control.

    Other Updates
    • Added /creeper (Spawn a creeper on your position)
    • Added /sugar (convert sugarcane to sugar)
    • Added /nv (Night vision)
    • Added the ability to toggle faction chat modes (faction, alliances, public)
    • Added the ability to filter what items go into hoppers
    • Added a brand new MCMMO Credit system (GUI included)
    • Added mob hoppers (collects all mob drops in chunk)
    • Faction fly has now been fixed
    • Iron golems will no longer drop poppies on death
    • /rankredeem will now also give you your due MCMMO Credits
    • EXP Fly will now only take 10 EXP per second rather than 1 level
    • Spawners now have sponge properties and repel water
    • Withers have been entirely disabled
    • Riding boats and horses has been disabled
    • Iron golems spawn on fire automatically
    • Blazes are now waterproof
    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.

    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 - Vhetration - $87,204,949,584.95
    #2 RipLordMatix3 - VelocityFoxHD - $39,360,049,259.64
    #3 solo - twinmage409 - $34,219,408,987.51
    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.

    We hope you've enjoyed this reset, and can’t wait to see you enjoy the new features and chances for fresh competition. OP Factions will be resetting on Saturday, October 6th at 12PM EST. At this time, the server will go down to prepare for the reset, and the full server will release at 2PM EST.

    Thanks for reading,

    Did you do anything to fix the Eco? Not much fun if people have billions after 1 week. Harvest farms should give more, Spawners less.

    Nice to see so many lovely changes being made for factions, especially pleased with the cannons and 1.8 pvp mechanics as that was an ongoing issue for a little bit.

    Eco changes are still being done in the next few days, but we will definitely be doing this.

    can any one explain the use of the ledge pick to me?
  10. Rasturize

    Rasturize Staff Member Upper Manager BART ELI SAM

    It's a pickaxe used to make creating many layers of walls easier. Once you've setup your trays, you can use this pickaxe to basically triple the speed of finishing your walls.

    Sounds like an amazing reset however, I see very little to abolish the main issue.... COMPETITION. The reset does look amazing but it is pointless if something drastic happens to increase competition.
  13. twinmage409


    what is a b-claim?
  14. EvastrialV1


    Sick sir
  15. Henaliest


    for everyone wondering, its tomorrow!

  16. Rasturize

    Rasturize Staff Member Upper Manager BART ELI SAM

    Basically, a claim that is created purely to annoy another faction or has no actual use.
  17. Henaliest


    Hey Connor. If you can, can u please release it a bit earlier than this given time? 7pm on a Sunday is a bit of a shit time for us Europeans, and as we won’t have the rest of the weekend to get set up, can you please strive to release it a bit earlier?
  18. Rasturize

    Rasturize Staff Member Upper Manager BART ELI SAM

    I've set the current time to make sure everything will be perfect for release, but it appears that we'll be able to release earlier. I'll announce the final time when I'm able to know a little more, for now release will remain the same.
