    Hello!

    Just checking in with another update. I'm proud to finally announce the release of Supply Drop, some long overdue Token Shop updates and a bunch of welcoming changes to our rules :)

    Supply Drop

    So, first off, Supply Drop. You've all been waiting for this for a lot longer than you should have been, but it's finally here. I wanted to make sure our version of this event wasn't something boring you can find on most other servers, so we put a lot of work into realizing our own vision of Supply Drop.

    Supply Drop runs once every 4 hours and broadcasts a 15 minute countdown announcement which includes the coordinates to the location of where the drop will be. The Supply Drop spawns as a chest item at a random location in wilderness, somewhere between y100-200. This item, like any other item, will fall to the ground unless there's someone or something there to catch it.

    Claiming in the Supply Drop chunk or any directly surrounding chunks is not allowed while the event is running, however, you are able to place or break blocks in these chunks even in combat.

    The person who picks up the chest item receives 160 faction points and a Supply Chest. The Supply Chest has the following loot possibilities:
    • 100% chance of receiving either a Rare or Mythical Crate Key
    • 100% chance of receiving a random kit chest
    • 80% chance of receiving between $100,000 to $200,000
    • 70% chance of receiving 1-3 god apples
    • 60% chance of receiving 1-2 hoppers
    • 20% chance of receiving either an Efficiency 5 or 6 Mining Drill
    • 15% chance of receiving another random kit chest
    • 8% chance of receiving either a Creeper, Pigman or Iron Golem spawner

    Token Shop Updates

    Over the past few maps, the token shop is the one area that's been consistently neglected. Especially with this map's changes to mcMMO, it became even more important for us to re-evaluate the token shop. While we haven't added a whole lot of new stuff, we did buff the existing stuff and added a few new things:
    • Increased 25 mcMMO to 200 mcMMO
    • Increased 50 mcmMO to 400 mcMMO
    • Upgraded Protection III to IV
    • Upgraded Sharpness IV to V
    • Added Depth Strider III
    • Added Rage IV
    • Added Cohesion III
    • Added Stamina IV
    • Added Deadeye II
    I'd really like to add more stuff to the token shop but lack ideas about what to add. If anyone within the community has suggestions regarding that, feel free to let me know. I'm be interested to hear them out.

    Ban & Mute Policy Updates

    Following some serious discussion with admins regarding our ban and mute policies, there's a strong agreement within the team that some changes to how we enforce some of our rules are long overdue.

    First, we've eliminated the hackusation rule. The fact is, hackers exist and losing to a hacker and then getting muted for calling them out is a frustrating experience. Most of us have probably been there in one way or another.

    Second, we've changed the scope of our "staff disrespect" rule to only apply to excessive staff disrespect. We've all had a friend who got muted or banned for some reason we don't fully understand, or maybe because of an actual staff mistake. In either case, we don't want to punish people for calling out staff.

    Lastly, we've relaxed the mute times for various chat offenses such as general chat violations, racism, suicide encouragement. Max mutes no longer last more than 1-2 days for most chat violations. Ban times for non-severe offenses have also been reduced.

    Video Evidence Policy

    As many of you know, for a while now we've had a rather strict policy on who we accept video evidence from, but we've seen a drastic decrease in our ability to catch hackers as a result.

    So if you suspect someone of cheating in-game, feel free to record them and submit that evidence for us to review. I hope that with your help we can get back to catching the baddies.
