Attention Factions
Once the ban reset happens and new seasons start up, if you are caught with a member who is ban evading for Chargeback and it's clear that you - the player - knows said player is committing said offense, you will be subject to a punishment.
This includes players like TheLumber and Sspazz - among others.

This can include several types of punishments including a faction disband.
Larger factions have already been warned about this, after messaging me about wanting to come back, despite having members banned for Chargeback.

I will investigate all reports and if you are found to be sheltering a player who is ban evading a Chargeback ban, your faction will be punished swiftly. No negotiation will take place for any factions caught with said members.

Please consider if you really think it is worth building a base, to get disbanded because of one member's mistake.
Hey!

Today I am happy to announce the brand new Monthly Crate: July 2017 version. This will be launching tomorrow (Saturday) on all servers apart from Factions Aqua.

We will be enabling the new July crate on Factions Aqua once the server has been reset, we don't want you to waste the purchase on a map that will be ending very shortly. (a leak?)

In this crate we are introducing XP Rewards, mcMMO credits and a brand new reward which has never been used on TheArchon - Coupon Codes!

Here is the Monthly Crate July 2017 Edition in it's glory:

[​IMG]

Action packed with so many awesome goodies. You will be able to purchase this crate on our store on Saturday. This will also be available to purchase on the new server The Phantom Dimension.

All servers will have access to /redeem as all servers obtain mcMMO to utilise the new fishing abilities and rewards, you can redeem the mcMMO credits on all skills (if the server has them enabled) or only the Fishing skill.

Also, incase you missed it, we've had a TON of new awesome announcements posted over the last few days which include the rewards in the new major buffed crate keys & a huge announcement about our bans!

Hey,

Today's post is going to be interesting and surprise everybody! But I am happy to announce that after many many months of discussion and debating it, we are officially clearing TheArchon's ban list.

But before we talk about that, I am going to be leaking some information about the new season..

There will be a video this weekend from Brayden regarding the new season. We will be telling you the Factions Top prize, the name and what some of the features are going to be. With that, I am happy to announce the following:

The server will be named: "The Phantom Dimension"

Tuesday 11th of July - The Phantom Dimension is released.
There will be a closed BETA to users who purchase ranks up until Friday morning.

25% sale on our store from Monday. I will tell you when it ends in the official announcement post.

Brand new Monthly crate releasing to Phantom Dimension and all other servers

$5,000 Factions Top Prize (PayPal)

And much, much more.

I hope you guys are as excited as we are to not only see a fresh new season, but to see Brayden back on TheArchon.

Now, onto the bans!

We will be doing an official Network unban of all servers this Sunday, the 9th of July. So if you have been banned for hacking, disrespectful name, racism/swearing, disallowed mods etc then you WILL be unbanned.

You will NOT be unbanned if you are on our Blacklisted users list & if you have previously made any form of Chargeback to TheArchon, even if you lost the chargeback. This is stated in the terms and conditions of the purchase.

We look forward to seeing many users return for the new season and many old faces!

We are going to be doing rank giveaways, key giveaways and much more on our Twitter over the weekend & release of The Phantom Dimension. So make sure to follow it:

Hey!

Today I will be letting you in some information regarding the brand new season coming to TheArchon along with announcing the closure of 3 servers.

Let's get straight into the transfers!

On the 3rd of July (Monday) we will be closing the following servers and allowing all rank/permission transfers to all current servers.

The following servers are being closed:

Factions Amethyst
Factions Amber
Factions Royal


If you have purchased a rank or achieved any extra permissions such as fly, disguises etc either by purchasing them or winning them in keys, they will be transferred to the desired server.

Now.. onto a little announcement about the next season of Factions!

There have been a few leaks, a few sneaky videos from different YouTubers some-what informing you of next season.. They are correct, there WILL be another season of Factions. The season WILL be recorded by Brayden (TheCampingRusher) and I assure you, it will be more than 3 episodes long.

With that, what I can tell you is that the new season is very, very close.. By that I mean within the next two weeks, or maybe one week.. Wait and find out.. Prior to the announcement we will be releasing a video on Brayden's channel providing you some information on the new season along with the dates & name of the season.

We are still finishing up the new season which is why it currently has not been released. Myself along with the head staff on TheArchon are extremely excited to bring you a new season of Factions and hope to make it the best one yet!

More news to follow..

Thanks,

Curtis.

Hey,

First I would like to apologize for the lack of updates and announcements. We are currently busy making a few internal changes on the network. But today I have a highly anticipated announcement.

We are officially ending Factions Amethyst this Friday, 26th of May and 5pm EST. I will take a snapshot of the Factions Top. Prizes will be paid out this weekend to the winners.

With that, we have also been working on many improvements. I am happy to tell you guys that we've completely reworked the way Enderpearls worked. This should make your enderpearls land alot better than what we previously released a few weeks ago.

With this, we've made drastic changes to the performance of certain cannons. We have been aware of the lag spikes from large cannons and have done many optimizations during this time.

The fixes will be released on the next server restarts.

Thanks,

Curtis.
Hey!

It's almost closer to the start of Summer and that means so many more updates and great things for the server.
Along with the past few additions announced recently, here's another few that mark just the start of a new beginning.

Today I am happy to announce a brand new addition to our amazing set of crate keys!
The contents are exemplified and brand new rewards are introduced.

The Monthly Crate brings a whole new meaning to Overpowered Crates!
But keep in mind, this special crate can only be purchased once a month no matter for what server, so choose wisely.
(ex. Buying a May Crate for Factions Silver means you cannot buy one for any other server color after that)

Chances of winning exclusive tags, special Admin items, ranks, disguises, keys and more are included in these crates.
A new exclusive addition to this crate includes the "Money Pouch".
This is a special item that holds a randomly generated amount of money in each one - more balance to fulfill your gambling addiction.

This update will be deploying to servers, one by one - tonight.

[​IMG]

With this new update, a new update to the keys will also be taking place.
Make sure to use up your Golden & Unique Keys by the end of the weekend or they will be lost.

Thanks,
Hydra

and the rest of TheArchon team.
