    Its been a very long time since the last map of factions and we've had to think long and hard with what we wanted to do with it. We've decided to deviate from what we've been doing the past few maps and aim for smaller factions that would rather have an enjoyable time than cater towards larger more competitive factions.

    With that all said, Welcome to Season 8!

    Events!
    Every few days there will be events for the entire server to compete in, these will happen every few days and there will be exclusive rewards for the winners of these events so make sure to be there and participate!

    Anti Cheat
    As some of you may remember last map there were issues with the anti-cheat. There wasn't a quick solution as the check for VClipping and Phasing also affected the performance of cannons and would cause them to not function correctly some of the time hindering raids. Since then these issues have been ironed out and will stop phasing and other movement based hacks.

    Whats new?
    TNT Bank

    Last season we had a feature which drew TNT from your TNT Bank and put it automatically put it in your dispensers when the cannon was fired. Since then we have removed this feature as this was being used against factions to drain them of their TNT.

    Core Protect and F Inspect
    Last season there were issues with /f inspect and core protect not showing the spawner and instead just showing (Mob_Spawner). This has now been fixed!

    GKits
    This probably isn't the first time that you've heard this but GKits have been balanced once again to give all players a reasonable chance at competing against one another.

    Harvester Hoes
    Harvester Hoes now work properly with MCMMO and will not "miss" certain drops anymore.

    Boosters
    Boosters will be available for purchase on our shop as well as obtainable in game, they will appear in the /boosters GUI.

    Liquids and GenBlocks
    Liquids and GenBlocks have been optimised and no longer cause as big of a tps drop when hundreds are being used or updated.

    Creepers
    A large issue with factions nowadays is that factions get raided too quickly and raids can go on for too long because of how easy TNT is to get. Because of this we have nerfed the rates at which creepers drop TNT to attempt to fix this issue.
