    Hello!

    Obviously with the Factions Reset happening on Saturday the 17th there has been a lot of questions about resets.

    Me and the rest of management have been very apprehensive about reset events seen as the previous ones had so many issues with lag (remember my apology livestream? hahah).

    Just so that we're clear btw to answer the "why don't you just buy better hosting?" question, we already have great hosting, but the way Minecraft is coded prevents us from having more than about 300 players in one gamemode without it causing mad lag. This is why we had no issues with events when the server was smaller, and lots of issues now that we're bigger.

    That being said it would be such a shame to reset the server without doing anything special which is why I held the mini "setting warp at my base" event last night, which was a lot of fun. Video out next week!

    And on Friday the 16th at 8pm UK we will be holding our most requested event, The Purge!

    In order to TRY and keep on top of lag @Dwayne will be initially limiting Factions to 50 players (who will connect randomly) and then he'll gradually increase the amount of players able to join, rather than having 500 people all trying to join at once like last time! We will continue to increase the player limit until it starts to lag, I have no idea how many people this will allow to join, but because the event lasts a few hours everyone who wants to should get the opportunity to play, eventually. I am sorry there isn't anything else we can do!

    If you don't know, the Purge is a very messy event that normally last a few hours where Hacking IS Allowed! Pvp will probably be active around spawn and you are allowed to Kill Aura, Xray etc until the Purge is either officially declared over, or until Factions resets the next day!
    - Normal chat rules will still apply.
    - Normal alt limit rules will still apply.
    - Hacking on any gamemode other than Factions will result in the normal 30 day ban.
    - After about an hour or two of the Purge launching, if everything goes okay we will also be unclaiming the spawn.

    There will NOT be an FFA this time, yes I know this sucks and I would have loved to do one but there was just way too many problems last time and it lead to lots of stress and unhappy players. Maybe next reset we will develop some plugins that will allow us to hold some kind of tournament type thing, but currently all our devs are busy making cool custom stuff for the reset. Which takes priority.

    In the previous Purge we sold a limited edition Purge kit, this time we will not be doing this. But we will be making the rare dark red name available to purchase. This package lasts forever ingame, but will only be available to buy on the 16th!

    Hope you're all excited to start Purging, I will be participating in the Purge and recording as much of it as I can. Once again I am sorry that we can't do the FFA, but there is no point everyone getting all their best gear prepared for you just to lag out, die and get kicked..

    See you at 8pm UK this Friday! It will last a few hours so don't worry if you can't be there at the start!

    Jack
