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!

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
Morning!

So I'm just gonna make a quick small statement about yesterdays crate key all and then I will get straight into the updates!

As many of you were aware, yesterday the 22nd of July, a Crate Key all happened on our servers as announced in Rushers video. I would first like to state that it was NOT promised to be a certain type of key. You were told EITHER a Normal Crate Key or an Ultimate Crate Key. You were not promised nor told a quantity of keys that were going to be given out.

Last night I wasn't online for the majority of what happened, but as many are aware we hit an insane playercount which we're extremely thankful for. I was called to come home while I was in the middle of a club with some friends (I know, me? In a club? LUL) to what was a huge network outage. I came home and it had restored itself. But obviously there were many, many upset and angry users because they had waited all day. I eventually did give the key out to around 1,600 players at the time across all of the network. It was 1 Normal key & 1 Common key. I then gave out 5 more Common keys, yes these keys are gained from voting. But they also do have usual items in them such as ranks and other crate keys.

To cut a long story short: Many players are mad that we only gave a single key out after what had happened. So with this, I am not making any sort of promises or a formal announcement right now, but I will speak with Rusher and possibly doing 1 more crate key sometime before summer ends. This is not confirmed until I make a tweet/post or Rusher mentions it in a video. It will most likely be another Normal key to make up for it, which would add up to 2 Normal keys given out. But as I said, I'll talk and see what I can do.

Now that is out of the way. Let's get into this update!

As promised in the video from Brayden we have the following releases/updates this week, they are mainly for the Phantom/Atlantis dimension. But we are working on...
Hey,

As many of you are already aware, Factions Aqua will be reset. With that, we will also be renaming the server to "The Skyline Dimension". All the rank names will stay the same for now, but they will most likely change in the future.

Reminder: There is currently a 25% sale active on our store right now!
This plans to end this weekend, so grab your crate keys, ranks, extra perks while you can at a discounted price!

Anyway, onto the reset.

It will be resetting TODAY the 13th of July at 5pm EST.
I would like to apologize for the terribly late post. It's my fault and I own up to it, but I did set a whitelist message informing of the reset day when we shut it down.

All Crate Key Balances will be reset on The Skyline Dimension.

The server will have a Factions Top prize which will compete in a 5 Faction v 5 Faction from The Phantom Dimension. The top 5 Factions from each dimension will compete in a series of events and the winners will be chosen from there.

This means 2 Factions from Skyline and 3 from Phantom could win the $5,000 Factions Top prize. We will announce closer to the closing date when we will be making the final snapshot of the data so we can start the events.

With that, The Skyline Dimension will be gaining a ton of new features:
