    Welcome to the 8th staff blog, huge news in this one!

    FACTIONS 1.8?!?!??!!!!!

    We're happy to announce that the next season of factions will be on the 1.8 version of Minecraft! This means the old TNT mechanics we all know and enjoy as well as the smoother, better PvP you're all used to.

    The reset date isn't set yet so keep your eyes peeled for one and keep grinding our current map for the end of the world events! (Winner gets a prize to help them at the start of next map)
    The next season of factions will be bigger and better than Skycade's ever had with more claims, more competition and some cool new updates!

    Hope you're all as excited as we are x

    Factions Updates (Current map)

    - Sponge now acts the same with lava as it does with water, meaning you can get rid of it easily!
    - Warp Enchant has been expanded!
    - Added an Iron Block sell sign!
    - You're now allowed to use a One Click Crafting mod to speed up your selling of iron!

    Staff Update

    You may have noticed quite a few changes to the staff team since the last blog, so congratulations to the following people:
    New Helpers: centrelink_povo, darkzeus6565, Hazzer14, MattLa, xMqtt
    New Mods: Nightscloud, NotHelen, Noto1472, PickleZ
    New SrMods: Dizcos and nocookies4me

    I'm sure they will all continue to do a great job.

    KitPvP Update

    - /spawn let's you refresh kit, no need to die but you lose the killstreak
    - Kit adjustments e.g. kit king's iron golem no longer attacks the owner



    That's it for this blog! Love to hear feedback below!

    We're also working on a brand new server not seen before on Skycade, but shhh that's a secret

    ??? KitPvP now has hit delay, not adding that in? @foreveralessio says it's shitty 1.9.

    Would've preferred 1.7, but I get the deal with plugins. Anyway, #hype!

    1.7 and 1.8 are very similar. In terms of TNT mechanics (which is mainly the reason we are reverting), there is no difference between 1.7 and 1.8 TNT mechanics.

    Can you guys fix the zombie pigman spawner? (expand the shop too please and add dyes and lilypads) and since zombie pigman spawners will produce more gold into the economy, I think you should low the gold blocks hiting thing too.

    The only major difference between the two is that you cannot block hit in 1.8.

    No, since the server will be resetting. You lose everything aside from some purchased items such as the coloured name or suffix's.
