Factions reset is finally here! Due to a few last-minute bugs (player power, wilderness, etc) we had to delay reset a bit :( That being said the are quite a few changes, you should start by checking out new, updated rules for the Factions server: https://www.extremecraft.net/rules/details/
There are also some new features, over the past few days we already added SandBots, which can now be used on Factions, OpFactions, and Cannoning server. The changes on Factions server...
We've updated FTOP and added Outposts that can be blown up or overclaimed. Outposts spawn with End Crystals that are now included in FTOP. Of course, End Crystals can be blown. Outposts will start spawning in Wilderness once the grace period is over.
Economy and crates were also updated, while Envoy rewards will be changed and updated every now and then. Each Faction now has its own TNT Bank and we added TNT Bank Tool to make your life easier. Last but not least Armor stand/Entity explosions were fixed!
Commands and features:
- Durability bugs were fixed (0 durability blocks etc)
- Updated /me command (it's part of public chat again)
- New Kit: /kit tnttool
- Fixed Captcha bugs and verification, also toned down spam filters a bit
- Fixed /f unclaim all bugs, also only Faction leader can now do /f unclaim all
- Updated Faction MOTD

- Added /f chunklist (see list of chunks claimed by your Faction)

- Withers were disabled
- Replaced FixAll villager with FixHand villager (at /warp shop)
- You can now only join Factions with Minecraft 1.8 to 1.12.2
- Creepers now drop TNT
We also removed bricks, nobody liked bricks. All the prices are also balanced, items in shop make sense and everything is nice.
We reworked almost from scratch one of the oldest projects we have, our beloved Discord bot
Among several bug fixes, and brand new bugs introduced, we also added a couple of extra features.
Automated eventsThe bot will now automatically detect when someone guesses the number in #guess-the-number chat and the reward will be handed out way quicker.
[NitroBooster] TitleAfter 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.

New Levelling System
We came up with a solution that would let you level up and at the same time give you enough space to build a nice looking island with no compromises.
You now have /is addlevels, this will open an inventory in which you drop in Coal, Iron, Gold, Emerald, Redstone, Lapis, Quartz or Diamond blocks and they will be consumed and turned into points.
New Spawn and PvPOur builders provided us with a brand new Spawn and PvP arena (Credits: BlueberryDaFloor, PlotChat and DaddyOmer)
ScoreboardSkyBlock will now have a sidebar showing useful info. You can toggle it in /sett if you like.
New EconomyWe tried to come up with a new economy that hopefully will keep things a bit more interesting and aim for a less AFK-focused gameplay.
New Starter IslandsYou can select from a wide range of new starter islands based on different biomes when you start playing now.
The old lottery was obviously too difficult, nobody would ever win so we reworked it entirely, we got rid of numbers and combinations and a winner is guaranteed to be selected twice a day.
Server NPCs and SpawnFollowing the lead of some other servers we also added NPCs that will connect you to all our gamemodes, this will make it easier for newcomers to have an overview of what we offer without going through the selector menu. Also they just look cool. (Thanks to Ivri22 for the edits and improvements to the spawn area)
Collectibles and ResetWe decided to rework the core of our lobby plugin and took the chance to start fresh and reset all the data of the past years so we could also apply some balance changes and fix some exploits that gave people infinite coins
So collectibles got reset too, we also changed locations so don't worry about the old coords you saved somewhere as they won't help you.
To spice up things a little bit this time the reward will be a little more fulfilling, in fact you will unlock the exclusive [LobbyExplorer] title that you will be able to use anywhere on the server, the title cannot be bought.
Snake TrainsWe found and fixed the Snake Trains that never made it to the public lobby, you can ride them and they'll show you the entire map.
Bug FixesSeveral bugs affecting the lobby since its release were also fixed as well as some false kicks from the anticheat.
BuildBattle, Pixel Art?
This is a side announcement regarding the latest BuildBattle, this time around the theme is Pixel Art.
We feel like we never gave enough love to all the players with skills in this building style and this will be an interesting change of pace.
