    The time has come for this season to come to an end, we'll be resetting both servers on the 16th of December at 5pm UK time with so many updates.
    As most of you know this season was our first season back on 1.8 and we introduced a load of new features including Conquest, Airdrop and a custom /f top and personally I think this has been the most enjoyable season Skycade's had so far. For the reset we've used this season as a foundation and just built onto it, making quite a lot of changes as I'm about to list, if it's not listed here it's not changing (like the border size, ally limit and so on):

    Changes that we've made to both servers


    - We're changing f top! We're splitting f top into 2 segments, the first being achievement points and the 2nd being points you earn through Airdrops and Conquests. We're also introducing a way for you to lose the f top points earned through Conquest or Airdrops, though not achievements. If you're killed in your own claim then you lose 2% of the event f top points. This means that if someone is raiding you you've got two choices, to defend and risk losing f top points or not to defend and risk losing your gear/spawners!
    On top of this we're introducing an /f baltop which will show the factions with the most collective balance, and f baltop will act as a multiplier on your /f top points, so your faction has to compete for events and money in order to be in with a chance of f top!

    - We're adding GenBuckets! You asked for it, we're giving you it. You'll be able to buy GenBuckets for sand and cobblestone in the shop.

    - Sell wands are also being added after popular demand. Sell wand will allow you to sell everything from a chest with one click making selling your iron/gunpowder/cactus and so on a lot quicker giving you more time to play! Sell wands will be purchasable in the shop and will break after a certain amount of uses.

    - You thought we were done there? Nonono, trench pickaxes are on their way to the shop as well. These will allow you to mine a 3x3 area just by breaking 1 block, making trenching a lot easier for your base.

    - We're stopping water flowing into lava from making cobblestone. This one's quite complicated but basically it'll mean regens are easier to raid - they'll still regen - but they won't cobble monster.

    - Flat bedrock in every world including the end.

    - Airdrops are changing so that they have 9 chests as opposed to the current 3, which means more loot up for grabs.

    - Airdrops will be a daily thing automatically scheduled by the server

    - Conquests will be once a week like they are now

    - TNT disabled for the first week of the map as a grace period.


    Changes to Classic Factions

    - We're introducing a super golden apple cooldown of 2 minutes, this will hopefully encourage potion pvp a little more.
    - To supplement this cooldown we're putting a cap on strength. Strength 2 won't be available, if you drink it it'll turn to an 8 minute strength one potion.

    Changes to OP Factions

    - We're reducing the McMMO cap to 300 so axes aren't as ridiculously powerful.



    That's all the changes we have for this reset, which is a lot of changes. Hopefully you're all excited, remember 5pm UK time on Saturday December the 16th. Be there.

    As an axe PVP'er myself, i am sad to see the axe's being debuffed but i think it is for the better, when i have fought people in the arena (or whatever the past tence of fight is,) about 75% of the people are using OP axes. I'm glad to see ALL these changes. The axe changes being my favourite one.
