What's up everyone,

The 12 hour Purge event has sadly come to an end, what a day it's been! We destroyed all Faction servers, we broke a Faction server or two, we broke the economy, gave away too much free stuff and used WAY too much TNT! Our Faction servers will now be unavaible for the next 24 hours as we prepare them to merge into the new season of Factions - Factions Fire.

We all know that all of your bought store items are quite precious to you and everyone who purchases them, in this announcement we will let you know what you will keep, lose and get back in Factions Fire.

WHAT YOU WILL LOSE
A reset is pretty straight forward, we will be resetting all the worlds and the player data. Here is a list of everything that will get reset:
  • The Overworld
  • The End & Nether
  • Inventories, Player Vaults & Enderchests
  • McMMO Levels & Credit
  • Leaderboards & F Top
  • Purchased Perks
  • Set Homes
  • Player Balances
WHAT YOU WILL KEEP
Don't worry, not everything is lost! Below is a list of all of the bits and bobs that you will keep upon the reset.
  • Player Ranks
  • Player Tags
  • Permission Perks (feed, colored signs, repair and nickname permissions only)
  • GKits

WAND GIFTCARDS
In Season 1, the Sell Wand & Craft Wands were very buggy and didn't work properly for a while. We worked hard on fixing this as much as we could. In Season 2 the two wands are stable and work better than ever. To apologise for any inconvenience, we are giving out gift cards to players who purchased one of these wands, the money on the gift card will depend on the sale price of the wand.

Anyone who has purchased a wand may receive a Gift Card, to get one, simply reply to this thread with your username and which of the two wands you bought and we will get back to you as soon as...
Hey!

Today I am going to be announcing a whole ton of information for you guys! Over the past couple of weeks since I've joined TheSquadMC I was given the task to recreate our Factions servers! So I am happy to announce and present to you.. Factions Fire.

Factions Fire will release on April 1st at 1PM EST.
You can view the time remaining here: http://itsalmo.st/#factionsfire

With Factions Fire comes a crazy amount of updates, fixes and important changes to the structure of how our current Faction servers are so make sure you're paying attention.

Server Structure (IMPORTANT)
We will be removing the 3 Faction servers right now which are rightly named "Factions-1" "Factions-2" and "Factions-3" and combining them all into one server which is going to be named "Factions Fire".

If you've made a purchase for a Rank, GKit, Tags, Perks (Permissions) etc then don't worry! We will be merging your permissions & ranks to Factions Fire. So yes, you will keep your purchases! This also means if you have won a rank or permission through the use of a crate key, we will also be transferring those.

Perks
I had noticed that there were a large amount of issues related to Perks. Issues such as people not getting what they purchased, not getting the tools that they purchased or the Perks just simply not working.

So with that we have decided that we're going to review ALL Perk payments and compensate those who made the purchases on Factions-1, 2 and 3 with the equivalent gift-card for you to reuse on our store! You can use these gift cards for ABSOLUTELY anything (within the balance) on our webstore -...
Hello everyone,

Earlier today, at approximately 10:05AM ET, we experienced a drive failure on the machine that hosts the TSMC website. While we were working with our hosting provider to investigate, this caused our site to become temporarily unavailable and a rollback to be initiated. We'd like to clarify on what happened to your data during this process behind-the-scenes.

At around the time specified above, our team picked up and investigated on a database issue that required our internal services to reboot. During this process, it became clear that our servers weren't able to start due to a drive related issue.

These types of problems require intervention from an external team as our hosting services are managed. This party took a significant amount to locate the issue, and at 10:30AM ET we restored to a temporary version of the site to post an update.

In the following hours, unfortunately it became clear to us that the damage was critical, and we would have to start back up based off of backup systems. These systems get updated every 24 hours normally, however due to a caching issue - it appeared that data had been downloaded from an outdated machine, dating back from March 18th.

This means that any and all data uploaded or changed between March 18th 8:00AM ET and March 27th 10:00AM ET, is permanently deleted from our site until further notice. We would like to deeply apologise for this inconvenience, and understand that this is an extremely frustrating issue for many of you using our site. Until we receive more information, unfortunately this is the situation we will have to deal with, and we'll continue to work on updates behind the scenes. We will keep you posted in this thread.

Thanks for understanding.

Thanks,
Jesse

Alongside the existing team, these individuals will be helping us make the Squad you know and love even better! On that note, let's procede to this weeks Weekly Update.

We're back today with a bunch of new additions to the server that have been much requested.

You can purchase 3 of these Crates per month, and there will be a new Monthly Crate every Month. We currently have a 65% off sale running, so take advantage of that while you can, these Monthly Crates pack a punch and will be sure to help you get started on any server you regularly play on!

Hey Everyone!

We're back again for yet another Weekly Update, this time with some exciting news regarding one of our newest additions to the server!

▶ Troll Wars

After talking it over with Unspeakable, Moose, and Shark, we came to the conclusion that we wanted to build a platform that our players could enjoy being trolled on while also enjoying a simplistic style of gameplay. This led to the creation of Troll Wars, survival with a twist.

▶ Gameplay

What better way to showcase this new gamemode than 3 new videos from your favorite content creators? Below are some videos you can watch to find out everything you need to know about Troll Wars. If you have any questions gameplay wise, either reply with your question(s) or ask us in the Discord!






▶ Passes

Before releasing Troll Wars, we needed a way to make sure there wouldn't be players coming on just to cause mayhem and chaos. This is where our Passes come in. To play Troll Wars, you'll need to purchase access on our Store, in which you can purchase 1-day, 3-day, or 1-month subscriptions. We currently have quite a big sale going on, and also took the opportunity to lower the prices of the Passes to make it easier on you guys to join in on the fun! Our content creators will be doing regular streams on there, make sure you don't miss out! Click on the packages on our Store for more information regarding the Passes.

▶ ️ Monthly Crates

We've added a new type of Crate separate from the rest on Skyblock and Factions, introducing... Monthly Crates! These are purchasable crates from our Store that will give you 10 rewards at once! You can purchase 3 of these Crates per month, and there will be a new Monthly Crate every Month with brand...
Hey Guys!

Coming soon to TheSquadMC...

Note: Bed Wars has not been released yet, when it does, it will be announced on our Discord and Twitter -- stay tuned.

▶ Bed Wars

That's right! The gamemode that's taken Minecraft by force as of recently is being worked on and will be added sometime in the near future to TheSquadMC! While the plan was to launch this gamemode last week, we’ve decided to spend a little more time on it as we want to make sure it’s perfect before letting you guys on. You may have already seen the gamemode in the server selector(s), if so, get excited! We have so many plans for both the gameplay and cosmetic aspects that we’re excited to update you on shortly. Some very important people may or may not be be streaming it on release...

▶ Gameplay

What is Bed Wars, you may ask? Bed Wars is one of the most popular Minecraft mini-games in which, based on the mode (explained in the below bullet) places you by yourself or with a team against other teams of the same size. You each spawn on an island with a bed, an ore generator, and two shop villagers. Once you destroy someone’s bed, you’re able to take them out of the game. If you kill someone but don’t break their bed, they will respawn in 5 seconds, and continue respawning until their bed is broken. To win, all other beds need to be broken and all other players need to be killed. If a player dies and is taken out of the game, it will display as “FINAL KILL” in chat. Winning will give you EXP and Coins, which can be used to...
Greetings and Happy Holidays everyone,

I want to start by thanking each and every one of you for joining us on release, we are extremely humbled by the sheer amount of you that joined even during the holidays.

I haven't formally introduced myself yet, so I'll take the opportunity to do so now. I'm Resilience, one of the three managers alongside @ConstructorLeo and @ConradHD. Together, we'll be ensuring that the community is taken care of and the staff are doing their job properly and effectively.

▶ Weekly/Bi-Weekly Updates

Every week, or every other week, I'll be making a post similarly structured to this one outlining the many fixes and additions we've made to the server, sale information, along with a look to future weekly updates in the coming weeks. Each of these posts will also have a giveaway in them, a $25 Buycraft voucher redeemable for any items or ranks on the store. To be entered in the giveaway, simply leave a comment on this post, the winner will be announced on the next Weekly Update. NOTE: Please do not make posts just to enter, they must be constructive posts with actual content in them. Don't just make a post with just your IGN or anything similar to that, or it will be removed.
