    Introducing Faction Season 1

    POSTPONED, due to constant toxicity within the faction community I've decided to postpone the reset. I will first focus on closing down some empty servers and other resets. The constant bashing & toxicity made me hate this job and I'm tired of it. At this point, I rather lose the faction community and actually enjoy working on the server again than having to deal with it.

    Yes! here it is our totally not stolen idea from other servers! But in all seriousness, we needed a major change in order to compete with other competitive Faction servers. It would be cool to be the to-go cracked server that offers a similar experience as current premium ones.

    So here are the end rewards after Season 1
    • 150 paypal - 80 buycraft
    • 80 paypal - 50 buycraft
    • 40 paypal - 25 buycraft
    • 20 paypal - 15 buycraft
    • 10 paypal - 10 buycraft
    Total: 350 euro Paypal*

    * The will be payout rules to prevent factions from hiding their wealth and suddenly become first on the last day.

    How it works
    Each season will consist out of 5 days of a grace period and 3 weeks of playtime. So in total, the season will take 26 days. The factions at the top 5 at that time will be the winners of the Paypal rewards and buycraft rewards. The server will then reset within 2-10 days and the next season will start with the same or maybe even higher rewards depending on the success (So the more people buy the higher the reward.

    I don't expect Season 1 to be perfect but many changes have been made and many more will be made to fix possible issues that may come to light. One investment was already done by purchasing one of the best performing spigot versions for Faction servers. This spigot comes with the following optimizations compared to our old spigot. The current faction server also runs this version but has only ran it the last couple of weeks.
