    It's been awhile since we've had an update announcement but here it finally is!

    Factions
    We finally reset Factions with the help of @LightningBone. He came back as a Factions admin and will be key in getting Factions the attention it deserves.

    Notable changes for the reset:
    • Only have access to your own rank's kit.
    • Kits don't have tons of random items. Those need to be purchased in the in game shop.
    • Kits every 48 hours.
    • New warzone.
    • New spawn.
    • Creeper eggs are purchasable on Buycraft.
    • End is now a warzone with enderman grinder.
    • 1000 mcmmo level limit on combat skills. No limit on other skills.
    • Removed /me and /disguise
    • Nick names now need to be related / close to your in game name. Abusing this will result in your /nick permission to be revoked.
    • 15 minute death ban
    • New anticheat!
    • New events such as KOTH will be happening.
    • Kills show in chat.
    • Player shops will soon be added.
    • @LightningBone!
    • YT and Twitch ranks will be added that are not difficult to obtain so we can reward people for promoting our server.
    As always, we appreciate any feedback you have on the changes we've made. Let us know!

    Invasion
    You guys have given us quite a few class suggestions since we first created that forum and most have yet to get any attention. Today, I went ahead and implemented some of the changes you guys suggested. I did not add or remove any classes, we will be doing that in another phase of updates.

    Changes going live later today:
    • PotionMaster: add fire res and regen potions.
    • Astronaut: remove fall damage and add 1 second cool down to jets.
    • Thief: 25% (was 10%) chance of stealing items. Also 25% chance of stealing each potion effect a player has (both positive, negative, and class effects).
    • Sunlight: add fire resistance.
    • Snowman: non glitchy method of freezing target players.
    We will also be adding another new map later today called Ascension:

    Yes. Only one will display and they will likely have the same perks. We will be releasing more information on this soon.

    For the YT ranks, will the rank also be shown on the other games? Or would it be just factions?
