1vs1 Tournament is over. There were some glorious battles, some tears, some laughs & Byteflux streaking wild through the arena.

It lasted a total of 4 hours. Not bad considering my previous tournament is still running.

The winners need to contact me via PM to claim their prize.

We will be running another tournament soon. Stay tuned!

If you're not there at 3 you run the risk of being disqualified and beaten with a stick.

Posting this through shitty hospital wifi through a vpn because Minelink is blocked LMAO. (No, I don't have butt cancer and yes, Byteflux gave me the aids)

Here it is, the announcement that many of you have been waiting for!

As most of us already know, season 2 was pretty rough, and not in a good way. We're thankful to all the people who stuck around until the end, whether you actively played for /f top or if you voted, or both!

The top 3 factions of last season are:
  1. thebest $160,530,000
  2. theworst $112,665,000
  3. coons $48,830,000
The top 3 factions are eligible to receive $400, $200 and $100 in Buycraft credit.

As a reminder, there is an active 50% sale going on, which means if you do choose to redeem the reward during the sale, you will only receive 50% of its value. Alternatively you can redeem it after the sale for its full value.

If you are the leader of one of these factions, please send me a forum convo with how you would like to redeem your reward!

Thanks to everyone who played season...

It was only a few hours late, but who's counting? We're really sorry it took longer than promised, we ran into some last minute issues that needed to be taken care of before we could push the new season live.

Many of you who joined as soon as the server opened didn't receive your starting cash as you normally have in previous maps, this was due to a bug in one of our plugins that slipped through our testing. We're sorry about that and we have separately credited the appropriate amounts to those who missed out.

There are still some glaring issues that need to be dealt with, but the critical stuff is now mostly stable and we will be moving down the list of things that need to be fixed. If you find something broken or have a question, feel free to start a forum convo with @RagingDouche and myself.

As a reminder, there is a week long TNT grace period in effect to allow time for factions to build a base and get settled in. Countdown:...

As promised, the big announcement is here. Season 2 has more than run its course and it's time to prepare for the next season. (sorry, @Arden2)

Season 2 Recap

Before I get into any of that, I want to take a bit of time to run through some of the major events in season 2 which led to the map becoming stagnant pretty early on.

Basically a combination of duping, creeper eggs and crate keys ruined the map early on and led to many complicit factions being punished. One of our staff members went rogue and decided to exploit a dupe which could only be exploited with a staff account and everything eventually spiraled out of control.

Factions ended up duping wealth, crate keys and creeper eggs. Creeper eggs were a major source of the map's stagnation due to how easily accessible they were as a result of the duping. Duped crate keys were used to obtain even more wealth and creeper eggs, as well as...
