So recently after the reopening this Friday I quickly came to realize that Iover looked a pretty big that was bothering game administration but it was a little too late when spam bots flooded the server with advertising bots and when my staff quickly ipbanned them, not knowing that everyone would also be ipbanned too if they left the server haha.

So that was awesome, but tonight was the best night of the weekend. Tonight I've took it upon myself to finally have player data relay to Mojangs authenticated servers. So what this means is that if you decide to change your name, you can finally come back and not be worried so from now on when you're on the Factions server and you're like "Oh shit, where's my shit?" just contact a staff member for help. We can recover inventory, enderchests, balances, and homesets. Or you can use this link for the form they'll just direct you to.

Oh and also, disband your faction if you're the leader of it and create a new one.. Don't forget to reclaim your land.

I appreciate everyone's patience, the server has been performing well since the change of host and I love that everyone's enjoying it too.

This isn't for much long, maybe an additional 24 hours for our 50% off everything sale going on at our webstore.

Hi,

First I would like to apologize for all the downtime we've had this past week, my team and I have been working tirelessly to provide a better playing experience with this much needed update I'll break it down by list of servers and misc.

Technical Changes
  1. Kastia servers have transitioned to a new hosting provider, MCProHosting on their best dedicated servers option, the Xeon E3-1270v3 from the former Xeon E5-2675. When comparing the two by single thread power, the new servers kick it into high gear scaling much higher in performance grade than the old machines.
Global Updates

[​IMG]
  1. Implemented your group prefix into the tablist, this was a huge request
  2. Majority of the ranks have been transitioned into MySQL stored tables for security and speed when delivering new ranks.
  3. Added a new menu when trying to reach hub to prevent rage quitting ''/
  4. Were you Kicked, Banned, or Muted? It's now public on the website navigation under "X Bans"
  5. Now tracking total playtime, sorry for not doing it earlier. Use /onlinetime to see total time online.
  6. By the time you see this, we're happily introducing 4 new Builders into our creative division, so if you see them in game, don't be afraid to say hello and congratulate them.

Important Zero Tolerance
Jun

It's disrespectful to me and the community players I represent when I trust you back into my community of privileged helpers and you use it to your own advantage.

Today I'm publicly denouncing the roles of two helpers who were caught abusing economy and sharing leaks in our system with their faction members to grow in top balances.

Faction, Ikea has lost two member and an alt and Squad lost a member for abusing economy after the server had crashed a few times over the night, I check logs everyday when I wake up so this wasn't unusual but seeing two helpers I trusted and lying to me about it was enough. They're not to be trusted because no matter what, they stuck to their story with the overwhelming amount of evidence we held and even lied to the faces of all their peers and people they called friends. The prize pool for the season is still $500 and this was the reason we reset in the first place. These cheaters and liars were held accountable and I'll defend this Faction season until the end to find the best Faction crew on the server.

Faction leaderboards will update soon with new values.

ADDED UPDATE: IKEA IS NOW DISQUALIFED FROM SEASON ONE COMPETITION

Global ranks, Special rank suffix reward for Battle Royale..

[​IMG]
It was easy to find some models for this Kit Pvp screenshot, but they weren't as enthusiastic about saying 'pickles' for the camera
Global Ranks:

Global ranks are coming back rebranded, and they're starting with anything you have on Battle Royale will transfer over to prevalent ranks in Mini Games. Example - Royal on Kit PVP will stay with you on potential other games.
  • Knight
  • Noble
  • Royal
Top Battle Royale Champion:

To incentivize more competitive play into our pvp based gamemode we're putting up Epic rewards for suggested top pvper on the standing leaderboards at the end of every month. The reward will be a custom suffix that will be displayed globally when you're on the server. Only one winner can have it each month. Fighters are also suggestive to keep good KD ratios for bonus points. Good Luck

Important Factions Reset
Jun
08
Hello Kastians!
As a lot of you may already know, Kastia opened it's doors and returned with one of the most beloved game modes, factions. We know a lot of you have a love and a passion for factions and that's why we have decided a reset is the best option.

Why?
As of late, we have realised that one of our plugins has an exploit. This exploit has allowed players to gain access to thousands of duped items and allowed for them to cheat their way to the top. As a result, we have removed this plugin and we tried to clear the damage that it has made. However, we were unsuccessful in clearing all the duped items and to keep things safer and fair a reset would be the best option.

What is a reset?
A reset simply means that all player data, excluding ranks/kits and any purchased items, will be cleared. This includes, but is not limited to, faction's, homes, balances, ender chests, inventories etc. This way no one will have access to illegal items in the game! Thus keeping it fair for everyone and a safer place to play.

What you will Lose:
  • ALL economy, home sets, items, spawners completely reset!

What you will Keep:
  • Ranks, Kits + Crates (this time only; wont always be returned on resets)

We apologize for the inconvenience but we hope you understand this decision.

Thanks,

The Kastia Team
