Rise of Nations is a donor-free factions server where PvP and raiding is encouraged, but you never have to worry about losing your base structure due to regeneration from CreeperHeal! A massive 34,000x34,000 world ready to be explored and conquered! This server has NO DONATIONS and McMMO stats for PvP are OFF for balancing. There are no ranks but Default and Administrator.
Play right away! You start in a basic spawn and pick one of the portals to port to the edge of the map.
We are not a pay to win server. No player gets any in-game advantages over other players.
Our map is brand new and features plenty of open space to build. Our map is currently 34,000x34,000 and has lands from the latest Minecraft version!
[quote]Definitely a unique server among today's offerings for Minecraft servers - the admins' staunch stance regarding pay-to-win is nothing but a positive aspect of the server. ...new players are welcomed warmly in whatever ways possible and even the biggest factions can be toppled; nobody's base is entirely safe due to Obsidian Destroyer and regarding equipment, it's entirely possible to get on par with anyone.
The server's difficulty is also worth mentioning - it's a very basic survival experience on hard mode, with the only plugins affecting this being Factions and mcMMO, but even claimed, protected land can be raided, and mcMMO has been tuned to be much more difficult to level than on other servers, which means it has a very minor affect on gameplay. TrustyTrade only really serves to make trades safer for both players.
If you're looking for a good factions server without the toxic influence of "donations", this is definitely the server for you. It's worth a try regardless
As before, I have to vouch for this amazing server, community is close-knit and newer players are always welcomed. Lag is not something you would experience on this server (unless it's on your end) with the beast of system it's running on and never in the 3 months that I've been here have I experienced a server crash. Beside how well the server runs, in game the gameplay is very balanced. McMMO usually is a grind for some people in PvP servers and you'd often encounter people that would break your armor in a couple hits by an axe. McMMO stats are disabled in PvP leaving mainly the skill of the player rather than how much time they grind that determines who would win a fight. Also there is no extra random color names with flashy, spinning, annoying letters to distract you in the chat. It's simple, all of the regular players are equal, there are no donors, no VIPs, none of that.
If you are looking for a fun, balanced factions server, you cannot pass this server up.
