OpFactions reset 2021

Finally... we did it! It took a bit longer than initially planned, but we wanted to actually fix all the issues with cannons (and lag) that were present on ExtremeCraft for too long. We're also happy to finally announce TNT cannons should now behave as expected on Factions, OpFactions and Cannoning.

We're also planning on adding new features to Cannoning server that should help with testing and debugging cannons, for example, an option to upload schem files, etc.

With all the bugfixes and changes, we also had to change Obsidian Destroyer (check out /od durabilities) and update F TOP (/f topinfo). Did I mention there's /tnttoggle command too now?

There are still some minor bugfixes we're working on, mostly cosmetics and we're open to ideas and suggestions on how we should implement SandBot.
This concludes one of the biggest updates we've ever worked on for this server weary
Quick tl;dr for those who won't bother reading Minigames reset and New BedWars release tomorrow 31st January

For all my other 2 readers who care about me here's what's changed.

Reworked Gadgets/Upgrades

This time around we wanted to simplify things, we removed lot of gadgets and upgrades that nobody liked or that were just too complicated, the ones who stayed got several balance and bug fixes as well.

No more P2W

BedWars has always been one of our least p2w servers and starting from this update it will go full free2win, with this we will also replace the coupons at the end of the seasons with unique cosmetics that you get to keep forever.
This is a new direction we intend to take for all the minigames we will replace with our own in the future, prioritizing a fair game experience for everyone.

New Shop

The shop NPC has been chopped in half and you now have 2 of them.

Shop

We also removed bricks, nobody liked bricks. All the prices are also balanced, items in shop make sense and everything is nice.

Reworked Maps

PvP was the focus this time around and our builders (specially gablalon tada) worked hard to make our maps more enjoyable aiming for a better game experience.
They're now more organized, moderately sized and less dispersive

Map

Map


All Time Leaderboard

You will now be able to see who's the best player of all time. Ever. You know the one that you will never reach so you will feel bad. The old season leaderboard will also be available of course.

Leaderboards


More Cosmetics

A load of new cosmetics were added: win effects, bed break effects, lobby gadgets/cosmetics and other cool stuff
The old season leaderboard will also be available of course.

New XP/Level system

One of the highlights of this update will be the new level system: you will earn XP by playing and doing quests, the more time you play and win and the more XP you will get.
Every 1,000 XP you will rankup, don't miss out the prestige ranks that you unlock after a certain amount of levels.

Level System


Better Block Traps

We wanted to give yet another chance to block traps, they are now more discrete when placed and can be placed anywhere in the map.

Better Generators

Generators are now less annoying and they will hide when enemies are nearby so that PvP will be possible. The item spawn rates are also improved and are more in line with shop prices, multiple players can also afk there and everyone will receive the items directly in the inventory so no more stealing tada

New Spawn

With such a big update it couldn't miss a brand new spawn as well, thanks to our builders Chawky_, Gablalon and Minhmeow3.

Spawn


Much More

The list of changes is A LOT longer and if you are still reading this chances are you already followed the development in the #dev-live-updates channel in our Discord anyway shrug

Discontinuing EggWars

This might be sad news for some of you who were hoping to see a revamp soon after but after some thought we decided to remove our EggWars server in favor of BedWars and the new update that we hope will still please as many people as possible, just give it a chance before judging and if you still don't like it we can still be friends.

We will instead focus on new gamemodes such as Spleef, Death/TNT run, Parkour and several other games we have planned and shortlisted since quite a while.

We reworked almost from scratch one of the oldest projects we have, our beloved Discord bot robot_face
Among several bug fixes, and brand new bugs introduced, we also added a couple of extra features.

Also all your stats are gone so deal with it.

Automated events

The bot will now automatically detect when someone guesses the number in #guess-the-number chat and the reward will be handed out way quicker.
This is also true for the #meme submissions, the monthly winners will be announced as soon as the month ends.

Guess the number channel


[NitroBooster] Title

After countless requests Nitro Boosters will now receive the [NitroBooster] title in game as long as they keep boosting, as soon as the boost runs out they'll lose the title as well.

Nitro Booster Title


Better rank comparison

Our rank comparison page has improved and looks a bit cleaner with tabs.
It also includes a tab dedicated to Discord and what you get from each rank and from Nitro Boosting

As side unrelated note we also improved the readability of the light theme for the website.

Various Changes

There were a lot of changes, here are the ones that affect players directly:
  • Added VoteParty notifications, whenever a voteparty is about to start in a server you can get notified
  • Usernames work as mentions in commands. You won't have to bother tagging people when issuing a command, for example /spank holliedce will work just fine
  • New #numbersgame similar to our #wordsgame it works with number sequences
  • Replaced unfunny /yomomma with generic /joke. Jokes are a little bit more funny now.
  • Commands like /avatar and /stats don't require you to tag yourself anymore in order to get your own data
  • /stats top will now have 3 leaderboards: chats, mentions and commands
  • At 60 offences you get banned tada
  • /remindme now supports removing reminders
  • /relations now has more subcommands to manage your relations
  • You can use /offe to see your own offences
  • Banned/unverified members can't talk anymore in #nitroboosters bypassing the bans
  • Fixed #role channel, you can now react to receive roles again
  • More consistent permissions such as Nexus can now post images anywhere and not just in specific chats
  • Added a couple extra rp commands
  • /trends is now slightly less spammy
  • Long /me messages will go in new line instead of becoming unreadably small
  • /calc is now more accurate
  • Bot answers were refreshed and changed almost entirely

The amount of changes is way longer than this but sadly for you they were more aimed to ease the Discord/Bot management for us and to update a now outdated codebase, the bot was made way back in 2016 and along the years Discord changed a lot.

There may still be bugs, if you happen to find one please report it here: https://www.extremecraft.net/tickets/new/5/

That's about it, we're now done with major changes regarding Discord and we will now focus on improving our servers, mainly minigames, and releasing new stuff and resetting stuff ok_hand

Factions server was just reset and we're happy to announce some of the changes that should balance out the Factions server.



Fireballs can now be used even if enemies are nearby, with that spawner drop rate was reduced from 90% to 70% which should prevent or at least penalize Factions that would raid their own spawners. Furthermore, lava and water can't be placed and won't flow 2 blocks around and above spawners, and of course, spawners can't be mined if enemies are nearby.

Chunks touching WorldBorder can't be overclaimed anymore and as usual, there's 7 days grace period in which overclaiming and explosions are disabled. Currently, ChunkRippers can't be used, this will be fixed after the next restart.

Useless items were removed from Crates and Envoy rewards and there were also many much-needed bugfixes and performance improvements (updated anti-phase, patched minecart/boat exploit, fixed nether portal handling, back, and logout location expiration, ...).

Update: You can now use ChunkRippers! :)
