Factions Reset: Friday August 5th Time: 4:00PM EST (Date may be changed but highly unlikely). As you guys may already know, factions has been needing a reset for a while. I can say with confidence that this release coming will be the best yet. Not only have I listen to the community but I have also added many features I think will make the overall Factions experience better. We have been working on this for quite a while now and I thank you for everyone who has been patient. There will be specific advertising for Factions as well! I hope you guys like the new features/ideas that will come in to play for MineVerge! Gamemode will be Minecraft Version 1.9.2 Worlds (All borders will be square.) : Overworld: Custom 10k x 10k map which includes the default vanilla biomes but has a reduced amount of oceans. Most of the map will be land. The bottom of the world will be Flat Bedrock. This allows everyone to mine easier and avoids uneven bedrock formation for when you use the Infusion Pickaxe. (Improved Custom Enchant) Nether: Regular 5k x 5k as always. End: The end will only be used for PvP & Grinding. This is better for gameplay in the Overworld. PvP (1.7-1.8): Last reset, as you may know, 1.9 hit us and we were not ready.We were using very poorly designed 1.8 pvp plugin and at the time this was all we had. Luckily we have upgrade from that! PvP will now be 1.7-1.8 fully with the exception of the temporary shield that will appear when right clicking. This just replaces the old fashion method of blocking. Features: - Instant attacks and no sword sweeps. - Critical hits allowed when sprinting. - *Nothing pvp related from the 1.9 Combat update* Enchantments : All enchantments can be applied by right-clicking a crystal. Crystals are Nether Stars that contain the custom enchants below. Some can be combined on the same tool. They will be available at our store with Tier levels and will also be available in all Crates aside from Spawner Crates. Antitoxin - Reduces the duration of debuffs by 10% per level with a max crystal level of 3. Blazing Touch - Auto-smelts ores (makes cobblestone drop stone, netherrack drop nether brick, ironore to drop ironingot, ect). This combines with Fortune 2 and 3 by dropping up to (Fortune level + Blazing Touch level) more, applied to any pickaxe with a max crystal level of 3. There is also an option to toggle this feature by sneaking. Cranial Strike - When hitting any mob or player, you have 2.5% chance per level to blind the mob / player for (1+level) seconds with a max crystal level of 3.

Infusion - When mining or digging, you excavate in a (level I 3x3, level II 5x5, level III 7x7) radius instead of just 1x1 with a max crystal level of 3. There is also an option to toggle this feature by sneaking. Lifesteal - When hitting another player / mob you have a 2.5% chance per level to heal yourself for 10% per level of damage dealt with a max crystal level of 3.
