    For all you Factions players we have a project in the works that is nearing completion. The staff, and a few of the players, have been working on making 4 new areas and a new spawn for our updated KOTH map. Hopefully this new map will be up and running in the next two weeks, so stay tuned!

    We are going to be updating the shop on Factions and improving the prices to reflect the current economy but that will take a bit longer.

    On Invasion we are still working on getting the maps updated. Expect to see some more updated maps in the very near future as well as the return of an old favorite for some of you.

    Skyrealms is taking a bit of a back seat right now but we are hoping to get all the kinks worked out of the player shops at spawn and getting them up and running again soon.

    I'd rather just reset factions and go HCF-style, but either way, at least some staff still update the server lmao

    Our intention is still the same on 1.9. Paw is working on setting up the test server with the 1.9 update. It is taking longer becuase he is doing it on his own now but he is making progress. To the best of my knowldege, he is still intending to let us try out the 1.9 update on the test server before he puts it into full implementation on the server and gauge people's reactions. However I do know that a there have been quite a few converts to 1.9 since our first mention of it. More players have been asking for us to update than when it first came out.

    you guys do realize they could take off the delay between attacks and change the damage weapons do back to how it is in 1.8 idk how this could be done with factions but i know it can be coded into invasion kits and items in the chests

    No. Its not happening in the near future. We have no plans at this time to do this. Lets move on already.

    Jack is right it can be done. We have discussed this already. We have even told you that already.

    The older Factions players all say they will quit. Most have already quit. They say you can't play Factions on 1.9. Other servers have updated with success. They say that 1.9 stinks for PVP. Lots of people disagree and actually like the new PVP style.

    What you guys forget is that eventually you will become too busy with real life to play on MC. The server have two choices, die as you leave, or try to attract new players. New players will have been playing on 1.9 already and be used to it. They will expect the server to be a 1.9 server. We have to do what is best for all players and the server. We can't refuse to adapt for a few die hard players who refuse to even consider a new style of pvp.

    That said we don't want to alienate the players who have been loyal for years. You guys made the server what it is and have been 'loyal' for years. We don't want to just throw you into 1.9 and say "like it or lump it". It's a difficult position to be in for the server.

    If the majority of the players are willing to give it 1.9 a try, and only a few die-hards refuse, then we have to make the switch. We will just have to say good bye to those players who care so little about the server that they would rather let it die then see it evolve and survive.

    Disagree all you want Tezwar and Mario12space but it won't make a bit of difference in the end.

    Thank you so much for addressing that Moonless. I know a lot of people hate the 1.9 update. I'm honestly not too fond of it myself, but Jack it right.

    You guys need to make decisions to keep the server alive. The best way to do that is to attract more players, even if it means losing a few stubborn-minded old ones. I want you to know that other players and myself will stand behind you in the decisions that you make <3

    I really really really want the 1.9 for new building ideas, 1.9 is the dream for any builder xD and that Mending enchantment, I want that, but lets rather not start up the "1.9 debate" again.

    Factions is not fun without having an HCF-style, look at how last map eventually turned out. This is another reason why the server and network was dying, no fun things to do, and that's what HCF has.


    The people who play 1.9 on servers are just 10-year old who don't care about how badly it affects the majority of minecraft. There are many reasons why 1.9 is trash, and even if it could be made similar to 1.8, there would still be disadvantages which can kill off the server, which for some reason you don't understand. Spectral arrows, dual wielding, nerfed gaps and attack cool downs are all trash, no Factions player would want them.

    Updating to 1.9 is basically setting a nuke off on the network. More people will quit then are now. The server would become infected with tons of kids who whine whenever they lose their stuff or die.

    This is why the network is dying: We are simply stating what the outcome would be, and yet some people think the outcome is good, while in reality is bad.
