I regret to inform you that some of our Factions data is corrupted. We know the cause of this, and it has been resolved in order to prevent it in the future. This corruption has lead to a vast majority of players losing their Factions, claims etc. Unfortunately we cannot get any of that data back which leads me to my next announcement.
EDIT On January 20th, from 8:00 p.m. GMT to 10:00 p.m. GMT we will purge the cruel world of Factions. This will be similar to the Survival Purge that happened a while back. All claims will be no longer protected, PvP will be enabled everywhere, TNT will light the server ablaze, etc. Everything is your's for the taking. It's finally time for you to get back at that rival Faction that claims they are untouchable.
Shortly after the purge, Factions will be reset due to us not being able to recover the data loss. Don't worry, though, it won't be the same Factions you are used to. We plan to add many new features that I'm sure you guys will be excited for.
We will not disclose all of the new features that we plan to add to this reset however we will give you a few leaks. We will have a 1v1 duel system for all of you PvPers out there. Farming prices will rise in order to make a more balanced economy. TNT and Obsidian prices will decrease, which means more time spent raiding than farming! Bounties will also be added back.
Once again, we do apologize for these issues. Thank you for your continued loyalty to the network and for bearing with us during these hard times. We appreciate every single one of you and your contribution to the server. Have a great day!
