We are starting up a new, unusually difficult factions server and want you to join.
It is a factions death-ban server with a focus on truly challenging the player and their faction; making sure that the challenge relies on proper strategies and combat skills such as sword combat, bow and arrow combat, tnt cannons, resource management, faction power management, proper base structure, proper resource allocation/spending, as well as factoring risk vs reward when deciding where/when to build and explore. However, we know how important it is to make the challenge based off of player skill and not simple frustration tactics. For these reasons, we will be inviting players to our server for a closed beta to help test our game.
Main features are as follows:
1 day (or more) Death-Ban

SERVER SURVIVAL TIPS
Trees = charcoal
Charcoal = life
Tip: do not pointlessly PvP, deathban is a whole day. Teamwork is important.
Tip: do not fight mobs without iron armor (we are on hard mode)
Tip: fighting mobs for bones and flesh is valuable (avoid creepers at all costs)
Tip: you can grow wheat without water or bonemeal (although slow)
Tip: cauldrons slowly collect water in rain.
On your first night, do not fight any mobs
On your first day, plant your trees as soon as you can
Do not wander too far from spawn point in your first few days (you MUST walk back to spawn for water, if you run out of thirst you DIE.)
Start a faction and claim the land where your trees are
Balance smelting iron and saving charcoal up
You should move away from spawn once you have enough water and food to do so.(To avoid deadly players)
Once you have a base away from spawn and a stockpile of water and food, save up charcoal to buy mushrooms if you are having trouble farming food.
Once you are confident in yourself, save up for some diamonds and make yourself some tools.
