Factions Top

It has been yet another hard fought map and there were some unfortunate disqualifications due to Factions not having the majority of their wealth placed at the specified time. Nevertheless, we would like to thank everyone for taking part and (mostly) playing fair.

1st
- Console ($9,455,209,953 - $250 Paypal & $125 in Buycraft coupons)
2nd - Vegetation ($668,698,706 - $150 Paypal^ & $100 in Buycraft coupons)
3rd - Farside ($628,660,205 - $100 Paypal & $75 in Buycraft coupons)
4th - Smoke ($242,025,131 - $50 in Buycraft coupons)
5th - Conqueers ($167,880,469 - $40 in Buycraft coupons)
6th - Unforgiven ($146,232,854 - $30 in Buycraft coupons)
7th - FreeVBucks ($38,640,526 - $20 in Buycraft coupons)
8th - Infamy ($35,484,593 - $20 in Buycraft coupons)
9th - DiamongSwag ($25,125,534 - $20 in Buycraft coupons)
10th - MistMcmmoLab ($20,305,618 - $20 in Buycraft coupons)

All coupons will be automatically distributed to the Faction leaders between now and the start of next map in reasonable denominations. Any Faction with a Paypal prize will need to contact myself on the forums with the email address to send the monies to (we will send the full prize to one email and you can distribute from there).

Faction Achievements

Out of the 28 Achievements available, 26 were completed by at least one Faction before the end of the Season. If you were the first Faction to complete an achievement with a Paypal prize, instructions to claim it would have been /mail'd to the Faction leader.

Barrows

Barrows has proven to be a big hit and will of course be returning next Season with new mechanics, bosses and abilities. For this map, the players with the three fastest completion times have won themselves a Buycraft coupon!

1st - milk_boy1 (4 minutes 45 seconds - $75 coupon)
2nd -...
The time has come for yet another Season to end. The staff team would like to thank everyone who took part and would encourage you to enjoy the downtime between now and the start of Season 7 :)

Winners will be announced in due course. We first need to deal with the removal of cheaters, rule breakers and alts from both the /f top and Barrows leaderboards.

If you have any information that may incriminate another Faction, please do submit a private support ticket.
Season 6 will officially end at 11pm UTC Sunday the 29th of July.

Once the Season has officially ended, achievement tracking will be disabled and any changes to the /f top or /barrows leaderboards will no longer be counted.

The map will remain online and playable (though with no guarantees in terms of uptime / lag) until nearer the start of Season 7.

Please note that alt Factions will be disqualified from /f top and any Faction which does not have the majority of their value placed before Friday (UTC) will be disqualified.

Share it with your friends, get them in our Discord and get HYPED for Season 6 launching this Saturday!

The time has come for our Season 6 Discord invite competition and rewards. Obviously the goal of this is to spread awareness of the server and the upcoming reset so please only invite people who may actually be interested - don't piss random people off!

Competition Details
Ranks will be awarded to the top three people who get the most joins to our Discord server using their own permanent invite links. You can create your own invite link by right-clicking the "Welcome" channel, and then clicking on "Instant Invite". Please make sure that you edit your link so that it never expires.

In order for an invite to be valid for competition purposes, the person you invited must join our Minecraft server and link their account (by typing "/discord link" on our server) before the competition closes. You should also link your own account before inviting others.

I would like to preface this by saying that the changelog below is huge, but we wanted to make sure that just about everything was detailed; plus it has lots of pictures so it really isn't too bad! More time than I care to admit has gone into creating the changelog, and many more times that has gone into implementing everything it describes.

Season 6 will launch on June 9th (so about 3 weeks from now). News about the Discord invite competition, trailer and staff applications will be dropped in the upcoming weeks so keep an eye out.

Please share any concerns, feedback or delight on this thread as we will be keeping a close eye on it and making changes where necessary. Make sure you join our Discord where ongoing discussions and polls relating to Season 6 will be taking place.

I hope we will be seeing many existing players returning as well as plenty of new ones who are tired of playing on unprofessional and 'scam' servers.

It seems that about 30 days ago Buycraft changed their Coupon code API. This means that automatically generated codes obtained ingame were set to expire immediately.

If you have any coupon codes created in the past 30 days, you will need to submit a ticket here to receive replacements.
As some of you are understandably getting restless, and rumours are starting to spread, I thought it would be best to give everyone an open and transparent look into the current progress of Season 6.

There are numerous reasons why news up to this point has been fairly sparse, but it has mostly come down to the fact that myself and swifteh have been very busy with other work commitments.

Current Progress

Builds

Next Season we will be replacing almost every build with something new, or adding a second build to go alongside the original in the cases of Conquest and LMS.

Spawn - complete (though does need some slight tweaking to better fit surrounding warzone)
Castle - complete
End Map / KOTH - complete
Duel Arenas - complete
PvP Arena - complete
LMS - complete
Conquest - complete
Warzone - complete

Plugins

I don't want to reveal too much as to ruin any surprises, but I will say that Season 6 will debut at least 4-5 'big' new features (one of which is The Barrows). Some you will have maybe seen on other servers, some will be completely unique (at least - I think). We will also be revisiting a lot of our existing plugins such as Crates, Lottery, Castle, Custom Enchantments and Coin Flip, giving each usability updates as well as new features.

Trailer

Without a fully completed set of builds and plugins, we are yet to have a trailer made. Last map we had the problem of creating the trailer way too early and last minute changes made some of it obsolete before the map even launched.

Once all of the plugins are...
Our cannon server, while fully functional, has been neglected for a short while so we thought it was time to give it a minor overhaul to address some of the more important concerns.

Firstly, we have upgraded the WorldEdit version to FastAsyncWorldEdit. This should not only offer much better performance but also fix any problems with blocks occasionally not pasting in properly.

Secondly we have added a new "mega" plot world, and anyone with a rank above Citizen can claim a plot there. This world features huge 75 x 75 chunk plots (an area increase of over six times over the standard plot size). This world also benefits from a larger chunk render distance.

And finally, all players now have access to 20 sethomes and anyone with a rank above Citizen can set 200!

To claim your mega plot, type /plot mega on the cannon server. You can teleport between plots with /plot tp.

We are still investigating the possibility of offering schematic uploading to the cannon server and upgrading to FastAsyncWorldEdit was the first step in this process.

You can join the cannon server directly using cannon.vaelox.com or join by typing /cannon while on the Factions server.
Season 5 has now officially ended, and a snapshot has been taken to determine end-of-season rewards. Anything done after this point will not be counted towards these calculations.

As always we will be giving players some time to open any disputes they may have (via ticket) before officially announcing the winners.

Details of the next season will follow shortly after the winners have been announced, and the map will remain active until just before the new season starts.
