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 - https://store.thesquadmc.net/ ▶ The Purge We will be running a purge for all 3 Faction servers on Friday, 30th of March at 1 PM EST. The purge will be recorded by all 3 YouTubers and posted to their channels, you're not going to want to miss it as it's going to be crazy! The Purge will include the removal of Spawn protection, crazy kits (for free) and much more! The purge will happen on the 30th of March. The time will be announced within the next day or two! ▶ Factions Fire Introduction Now, let's get onto the details of the Factions Fire release! As mentioned above we will be merging Factions-1, 2 and 3 into one single realm. With this comes a huge amount of new features. We have created a trailer for you to watch! Before you watch the trailer I just wanted to announce that with the introduction of Factions Fire that ALL 3 YouTubers WILL be creating a Factions series! You'll be able to check it out on their channels! Watch below: ▶ Misc Information 12,500 x 12,500 World Limit 1,500 x 1,500 Nether Limit 3500 x 3500 End Limit 30 Member Limit 30 Power Per Player 1 Ally Faction Rules are STILL enforced 1 Week Grace Period (No TNT, Creeper Eggs or KoTH's) Now that we've got the boring information out of the way, I think it's time we get to the interesting stuff!
