    As most of you know, we reset factions in 1 week (September 16th) and as we do so we're also releasing OP Factions. You can read about that more here. Here's the specifications for those gamemodes.


    Classic Factions

    • Borders: Overworld is 15 thousand, End is 6 thousand and the Nether is 3 thousand.
    • No water in the Nether
    • No Withers
    • Custom /f top system (explained below)
    • /logout system (explained below)
    • 10 second enderpearl cooldown
    • Enderpearls work in combat and claims
    • /tntfill to easily fill up dispensers in cannons!
    • Entities disappear over Y level 256 so no roof cannons
    • The end has a layer of bedrock at the bottom to stack on
    • Protection 4 Sharpness 5 is the top, so default levels of enchantment
    • Custom enchants: Boots that give you constant speed 2, a helmet that feeds you as you move about.
    • Spawner based economy with mobstacking.
    • Improved and expanded shop
    • No McMMO
    • No Nether portals
    • 20 player cap per faction with 1 ally
    • 121 chunk claim limit - nearly double season 6's!
    • Updated mystery crates - more chance of getting a good reward!

    OP Factions

    • Borders: Overworld is 15 thousand, End is 6 thousand and the Nether is 3 thousand.
    • There is water in the nether
    • No Withers
    • Custom /f top system (explained below)
    • /logout system (explained below)
    • 10 second enderpearl cooldown
    • Enderpearls work in combat and claims
    • /tntfill to easily fill up dispensers in cannons!
    • Entities disappear over Y level 256 so no roof cannons
    • The end has a layer of bedrock at the bottom to stack on
    • Protection 20, sharpness 25 is the top levels of enchants
    • Custom enchants: Boots that give you constant speed 2, a helmet that feeds you as you move about and a chestplate that gives you 4 hearts of absorption for 15 seconds after a kill
    • Spawner based economy with mobstacking.
    • Improved and expanded shop
    • McMMO including combat McMMO up to level 500
    • No Nether portals
    • 25 player cap per faction with 2 allies
    • 121 chunk claim limit - nearly double season 6's!
    • Updated mystery crates - more chance of getting a good reward!
    Custom /f top

    Skycade's f top system is not like others, so we're not basing it on who has the most money or who has the most spawners! The f top leaderboard is point based, and factions can earn points through achievements such as 'own 15 iron golem spawners' or 'have a full faction'. These achievements can be seen using /f achievements and will give you different amounts of points based on their difficulty. You can also earn points through events and airdrops, so be sure to show up to events and airdrops if you want to prove yourself as one of Skycade's best factions. We hope this makes the f top leaderboard more competitive than if it were just based on wealth and it should encourage PvP!

    Logout system

    In order to logout you usually just /hub or disconnect, however doing that will leave behind a villager in your place for 30 seconds; after 30 seconds, the villager despawns. However, if the villager is killed before it despawns then the items you had in your inventory will be dropped and you will be dead next time you log in. You can avoid this risk by typing /logout which will log you out safely after the set time.
    If you're safe and snug in your base, there's no need to worry about disconnecting. This is to stop people escaping combat tag and just disconnecting immediately, players now actually have to escape or win in order to survive a fight.


    We've worked very hard to make this the most competitive, fast paced and fun season(s) Skycade has had yet and we're excited to see how it plays out. Hope you guys are too!

    Cannons
    Cannons are limited to only 400 tnt per tick which means you can't ignite more than 400 TNT in 1 tick.

    I don't know if the layer of bedrock is such a good idea, makes end bases much easier to make - instead of collecting the funds and resources to bridge out, you can just run along the bottom. Everything else sounds great though! 9½/10

    We're playing OP Factions but it's nice of you to make assumptions and end up looking stupid x
