ize=18px]I’d Like To Invite You All To Our Brand New Custom Factions Server[/size]
We have recently built a new factions server that is online 24/7. The server is Brand New which means that every user has an even chance when newly spawning. The world offers a fantastic custom landscape with superb views and scenery as well as an excellently built spawn.
[size=18px]What Makes Us Unique:[/size]
-Our server is completely manmade – every block placed is for a purpose and to improve the player experience within our server.
-Stores and currency allow users to trade their way to riches and means the server relies heavily on the currency, unlike many other servers.
-We’re online 24/7 (and we have an account dedicated to the server so that we can host 24/7).
-We care about what you think and how you play – we’ve changed the server and added so many new features based around what you guys said in the last server.
-The overall playtime on our server is much longer due to ores being much more difficult to find. Diamond, Iron and Gold Ores are very rare within the server, meaning it won’t be easy to become the best. Therefore players rely heavily on the currency system and working together as a team to make their way to the top. This is different to many other servers, where mining for ores tends to be easy and players could be fully kitted out in Diamond Armour and Weapons within 10 minutes of playing. -We’ve hosted large servers before – We had over 530 players play in our old server and therefore understand and have the knowledge of how to host. We treat every single player with respect and our Moderators do a fantastic job of helping new players.
-Automated Store Removed – The automated store has been removed – instead making way for manual store by the moderators. This means prices can change to suit the world changes and players are keen to trade within themselves. This was tested toward the end of the previous server and it worked extremely well. -Removed Starter Kit: The Starter Kit that players could receive upon joining the server has been removed due to the map not being challenging enough to players. There was also a large loophole within the automated store and the Starter Kit whereby players could earn unlimited amount of in-game money through boosting.
-Diamond Ores & Iron Ores harder to find: In the previous two servers, Diamond and Iron Ores were very difficult and hard to find due to being so rare and individually placed. Players were able to find them however, with much effort and time. This time round, Diamond and Iron Ores are even more limited and hard to find. This had been done due to the fact that players with Diamond and Iron items were very superior over those that didn’t. As Iron and Diamond being difficult to find, it was hard for new players (and players who couldn’t achieve the Ores) to have the full factions experience.
As well as that, our Moderator team felt that the “Factions” feel to the server had gone once a user had achieved full Diamond Armour, there was no need for them to join other players in a Faction. By the end of our 19 Month server, there were just 20 individuals against each other.
Making Diamond and Iron Ores harder to find allows the player’s overall game to last longer and creates a bigger challenge to the Factions Server. One of our goals in the previous two servers was to make the player’s game last as long as possible before ‘Maxing Out’ with a full Diamond Kit. This will be the same on this server as players won’t be able to ‘Max Out’ within a couple of hours of playing.
-Gold Ores added to the server: In our previous servers, players haven’t been able to mine gold or use gold items unless purchasing them from the store with our in-game currency. This time round, Gold Ores have been added to the world for players to mine. Gold Ore is slightly less rare than Diamond and Iron Ore. -Custom Clouds Removed: Last time round we added ‘Custom Clouds’ to the server which we built out of white wool. The clouds were much more realistic than the Minecraft block-like clouds and also gave players another area to explore as they could find treasures such as armour within the clouds. The clouds have been removed this time round as (although we got many positive reactions to the unique idea) there were many players annoyed by the graphic effects of them due to them shading large, random areas. -New Easter Eggs: Last time round, we had many Easter Eggs within the map which gave users special kits or potions when found. I’m very pleased to say we’re doing it again but with different Easter Eggs. An example of a couple last year was a ‘Heaven’ in the Custom Clouds that we had built and a Secret Villager ‘Scuba Diver’ in one of the lakes on the world – expect to see similar Easter Eggs on this world.
-A New Host: Both of our old servers had a host known as BEN THE KLNG, this time we have our very own account dedicated to the server which means that we can be up and running 24/7. -Unlimited Players: In our last two servers, we stopped adding new players from the forums once we hit a certain amount of users (300 and 450). This was to allow a community feel within the server and prevent new players blocking old, loyal players from joining. At 450 players we stopped adding people from the MinecraftForum thread and instead only added people when recommended by players already within the server. In this server, we will scrap this idea as we feel like everyone should get to enjoy the world (new or old). -Loyalty Bonuses: Players who have played in the world for a long time and have provided help and guidance to the server’s community (E.G. Helping new players understand the basic rules and how to play) may be given rewards. These could include: Armour, Weapons, Resources, In-Game Currency, MOD Rank. -‘How To Play’ board added into the spawn area: A ‘How To Play’ board has been added into the spawn area for those unsure how to play Factions. It gives the basic understanding of what to do and how to play Factions in Minecraft.
These are only our new features for those that have played in our previous Factions Server. If you’re new, expect to see all of these within the server plus much more unique features within the server that will make your time playing Factions much more fun.
