Hey!

Sorry for the lack of announcements and information posted over the last few weeks, we've been hard at work developing and planning the next season of Factions! With that, there will be a video from Brayden tonight giving you all the information in regards to the current season of Factions for the $5,000 Factions Top Prize!

The September Crate will be on the store within the next hour or two and will be available on all servers! The September Monthly crate will last until October and you will only be allowed to purchase 1 of them on the whole network.

Here is what the contents of the September Monthly crate hold:

We have tried to change the keys up and have less money pouches and more awesome features!

You can purchase this from our store: shop.thearchon.net

There will be a post during this weekend giving you the information about the new season and possibly some leaks for the next season, it's looking spicy!

Thanks,

Curtis.

Greetings Adventurers!

Here with a post about how players can apply for the variation of our YT ranks.
This post will detail the requirements, rewards, and guidelines for those interested in recording on TheArchon.

There are four ranks that have different requirements and also rewards.
These include the Twitch, YT, YT+, and Famous ranks, but there is also a rank which is only able to be given by Administrators+ on a case by case basis.

Apply : HERE

Twitch:
  • 100+ Followers
  • 20+ constant viewers
  • At least 3 streams on TheArchon (within the past 2 weeks)
  • Streams must be each 30+ minutes in length.

YT:
  • 500+ Subscribers
  • 200+ views per episode (in 24 hours)

The ranks are on a per-server basis, so the in-game tags are only on the server you create content on.
Ranks each come with all perks of a certain donor rank, correlated with the rank - along with keys (depending on the rank) to help out with your individual series and also things to giveaway from time to time.

Greetings,

Today we are bringing you another update, as promised! This week we have a fresh new Dimension releasing, a brand new page of /levels and we're going to be enabling Double XP!

The new Dimension

The new Dimension is called "The Hardcore Dimension" for those who are not aware @Coby has been working extremely hard on a brand new realm. This realm is going to our very first Hardcore Factions server. For those who do not know what a HCF (or Hardcore Factions) server is, please click the link that will be posted below.

With that release, we will be doing a HUGE 3 day exclusive 35% sale for only Hardcore Dimension related items. This includes ranks (both permanent and temporarily), kits & more! The sale will be enabled on Friday and will end Sunday!

Important Information (CLICK)

Hardcore Factions - The Basics (CLICK)


Double XP + Levels Page

As promised, we have another page of our Player Levelling system! This page will give you crate keys, money pouches and even access to exclusive perks that you can get on our store! Please note: Perks are limited to that map only, if that server resets or closes, the permission will be removed.

We are enabling a Double XP weekend for ALL servers! This Double XP weekend will start Friday and end Sunday night, similar to the HCF sale!

And that concludes this weekly update post! We will have another...
Hey,

Just wanted to make a post to say that the server is currently online for everybody to play. We hope it continues to stay online and have no further downtime/issues. This has hit us greatly too, not only have you guys, the players and supporters lost a huge amount of time grinding to win those f top prizes.. We have lost the trust from our community, but I assure you, we worked all through the night to get the server stable again.. This doesn't mean it wont go down again fyi.

As I wrote the above text we went offline. So no, we dont have a proper solution in place yet to fully mitigate it. But we're working on it. For some reference, these are the people that were hitting off the EA (Battlefield servers) around this time last year, so for those saying "buy protection" "buy new servers" we have all that, but it's a case of the attacks being so large they are effecting other networks that are absolutely nothing to do with TheArchon

Anyway on to what this post is actually about! We deployed a modification to the way users are allowed to use their homes based on Faction territory. We have made it so that you are no longer able to sethome or teleport to homes based in a Factions land. This is to bring down the amount of insiding that users are doing and make Faction Owners and their members feel a little more safe going to bed.

With that, we know that you would like the ability to let certain ranks or certain Faction relations be able to teleport and sethome in the land, so this post is to simply announce a brand new Faction Perm:

The Faction Perm is called "phomes"

By default ALL Faction Ranks (Recruit, Member, Officer, Co-Leader & Leader) will be able to sethome & teleport to homes in your land. You will need to modify this via the normal /f perm command. You can also modify it for Enemy & Allies.

We have also done a fix to Faction members not being able to open...
Hey,

Just wanted to give you a quick update on the situation that is currently going on. As you maybe aware the network is currently going up and down. This is due to some network issues which we are working hard to resolve.

The issue at hand is a large amount of DDoS attacks pretty much strong enough to take down any server. The DDoS is so large it has caused other networks on the same backend network as us to lose players too, so hopefully that lets you know the extent of it..

Our providers are working on fixing this and getting us back online ASAP. I would like to personally apologise for this and will keep you updated as we make progress.

Thank you for understanding and again, sorry for any inconvenience caused during this.

Thanks,

Curtis.

EDIT: Server is constantly online & offline right now. We have decided to disable TNT globally until the server is fully stable again. TNT will be enabled as soon as we deem the server stable.

EDIT 2) Server is currently back online. Seems some-what stable. Will give it a little more time before I announce the time TNT will be enabled.
2.1) We have also deployed a patch for Tier VI Money Pouches. We are waiting for certain users to login so that we can regive them, most have them already.
Good afternoon,

Firstly would like to aplogize on the late post/announcement. But I assure you, this update and Monthly Crate was worth the wait..

We have made this Monthly Crate the most action packed possible! Featuring brand new features to TheArchon only obtainable through Monthly Crates. Those features include:

- Boss Mobs
- Airstrikes (two types)
- New Tier Money Pouches

Here is a little information on those new features/releases:

Boss Mobs is something we've wanted to implement for along time now, since we implemented the Cow missions along time ago. It's just something we honestly kept putting to the back of our list, but I am happy to announce that we are finally releasing TWO extremely OP Boss Mobs within the August Monthly Crate.

These Boss Mobs will NOT be able to be bought on the store, atleast for right now. They are only achieveable through the August Monthly Crate which you can purchase from HERE.

Here is a little insight on each boss:

The Infested Zombie (Legendary):

Classified and covered up, this specimen was created in a failed experiment by the Government. After breaking loose and inhabiting a scientist, it wanders the lands in search for its next victim. With his special abilities he promises to be a tough fight but extremely rewarding.



The Arachnid Queen (Regular):

Stories speak of the hunters who venture into the Warped Forest in search for treasure. The ones who have made it back, only scream in terror about gigantic spiders and the masses they control. She promises to put up a strong fight, don't be scared...

Those are the two current Boss Mobs that we will be releasing. Both have special abilities and a insane amount of strength. You're going to want to make sure you're in the best gear to tackle these insane Mobs.

The Loot:

Each Mob has a different set of loot. The loot ranges from 1st place - 3rd place. Your place is determined...
Evening Archon Players!
Today I'll be announcing the introduction of Monthly Top Voter Rewards and also a special voting feature that happens on the 1st day of August.


As many of you know, recently we upgraded vote rewards to a "Vote key" system rather than the assortment of items that were here beforehand. Because of this, many more players have voted and this has also helped bring so many new faces to the Archon community!

To encourage our voters, even more, to vote for TheArchon and also gain some sweet rewards on the side, we are introducing a Monthly Top Voters system. This is too reward those players, who go above and beyond, to help out the server by voting.

At the end of each month, the total amount of votes will be calculated and Store Vouchers will be given to the recipients, who can do anything they'd like with the code. Rewards are as follows :

  1. $50 Store Voucher
  2. $40 Store Voucher
  3. $30 Store Voucher
  4. $20 Store Voucher
  5. $10 Store Voucher

In addition to this update, we will also be announcing another voting feature.

Starting at 10 AM EST, on the 1st day of August, there will be DOUBLE REWARDS for voting for 12 hours.

As always, I'd like to thank every one of our players for your continued support of TheArchon.
The team is hard at work, creating new content for the community to enjoy.

Thanks,
TheArchon Team
