So the long awaited day has finally come, the factions reset is upon us. If you've kept up to date on announcements you'll know already that the next season of factions will be in the 1.8 version of Minecraft, this improves both PvP and cannons - you can read about that here. This change is not the only change we've made as you'll see later in the post, we've added new features to make the gamemode more competitive and fun as we move further towards what's known as Skycade 2.0. As the title suggests, we're not just resetting our current map, we're also introducing a new gamemode to Skycade: OPFactions. OPFactions is the same concept as regular factions, you make your faction, you grind out your base and you battle it out! Raid, PvP, get rich and crush the competition! The differences are that OPFactions has higher enchantments, so you can get up to protection 25 for example, the PvP style is slightly different because super golden apples are more easily available and so on! The reset and launch of both servers will be on the 16th of September at 3pm BST // 10am EST. A few new things we've added are listed below, you'll find out more soon! - A new combat logging plugin - A custom /f top plugin, not seen anywhere else! - Custom enchants - Bigger factions - Bigger claims (121 chunks) I hope you're as excited as we are for the launches, we've worked super hard on making these the best seasons of factions Skycade has ever seen. Get your bases planned and your faction rosters ready! Which version will you be playing, regular or OP? Both? Tell us below!
