If you are a current Faction player on MCCentral, im sure you are well aware that our current season is due to end this upcoming weekend (To view the exact time the season is due to end, we have a countdown ingame above the donator board at spawn).
1 Week Downtime:
Due to the date that season 10 ends, we have made the decision to have 1 week downtime of the server in preparation for Season 11. This will allow us to launch Season 11 on a weekend, allowing as many people as possible to play during the Start Of The World, giving all players a fair chance.
The reset date for Factions is currently set in stone, and will be taking place on Friday 8th June (5pm CT). If you are planning on playing Season 11 of MCC, I highly suggest you are here at this date/time (View the current CT time here).
What content do we have planned for the reset?
Our upcoming season of Factions is planned to play out a bit differently to our past 2 seasons. If you have been an active player around MCCentral, you will be aware that our past 2 seasons of Factions have been shorter seasons in attempt to make them more competitive. Whilst this did work in some aspect, we believe it has caused a lot more issues than hoped for (We believe it has brought in a lot of toxicity and unneeded issues which we have had to waste time in resolving, almost daily. Personally I would prefer to dedicate this time into working on new content, and fixing genuine issues!). Season 11.0 is planned to be 3 months long, rather than the short 5 week seasons which have taken place the past 2 seasons. Whilst some of the more focused Factions may be very against this idea, we believe this will suit our community and player base on MCCentral best (The large majority of our playerbase being casual Minecraft players). In terms of content, you can expect to see newly added Bosses, along with much more. Like always, I encourage everyone to post all of their ideas / suggestions for Season 11 on the forums. I understand that many of the Factions players may have contact with me on Discord, however please do not message me suggestions there. They get easily lost, and will most likely be forgotten about and not added. Please follow the process of either commenting on this thread here or simply creating a new thread! We will be actively going through all threads to ensure the community gets what they are expecting this upcoming season.
Will there be PayPal prizes?
I have seen a lot of speculation regarding the PayPal prizes on Factions. Many players have been wondering if there will be PayPal prizes next season on Factions, or simply if there will be any prizes at all. No, we do not plan on having any PayPal reward next season on Factions. We believe this has been the root of many issues. We will however still have a large Buycraft Prize up for grabs, like our old days. There will be $600 Buycraft Prize Money up for grabs at the END of the season.
1st - $300 Buycraft Gift Card
2nd - $200 Buycraft Gift Card
3rd - $100 Buycraft Gift Card
The winners will be decided at the end of the 3 month season, and will be rewarded with their prizes then.
Please get those ideas pumping guys! I will be staying as active as possible going through all of these suggesting and getting the content you lot want released!
