It finally happened, the Hardcore Factions server is now open!
We're sorry about all the delays and issues, but unfortunately, it took longer than anticipated.
With that out of the way, I would like to point out again that the new Hardcore Factions server is and will stay EULA compliant. Meaning you won't have any in-game advantages whenever you're playing with Member or Nexus rank. As result some of the permissions for Member rank were updated on the Hardcore Factions server (extra homes, silk spawners, ...), we understand this might be a bit different from Factions servers we had before but there really is no other way.
As you can imagine you also can't buy crates keys, in-game money, boss items from the store, instead you can now get them by voting, by winning KOTH events, or simply by looting Envoys.
Outposts and most of the recently added custom features are there, grace period as usual and we're still working on some updates and bug fixes.
Since this was a major group/permissions update, bug reports, as well as suggestions, are welcomed! With suggestions, just keep in mind ranks can not give any kinds of advantages, unless we give it to everyone (Member rank).
