This is the update you have all been waiting for!
KitPVP version 3.1 is now released! Join it at /server KitPVPRetro
KitPVP version 3.0's goal was to have something unique, future-proof the server, and to innovate. We did that but the one thing missing in that list is to make players feel comfortable. The ShadowXCraft community doesn't like change, and we innovated too much, including the use of 1.9, something most of you do not appear to enjoy using.
This update's goal was to shape KitPVP version 3.0 into something all of you would enjoy and be comfortable with, and I believe we have done that!
Revamped Arena 2 added for your enjoyment.
Added few new arenas.
Full 1.7.2-1.8.9 client compatibility on a native 1.8.8 server!
Hey everyone! I'm pretty sure most of you have already seen the FactionsDev server, I'm here to reveal some things that are in there!
70% Done - (Closer, and closer!) What is FactionsDev? - Due to Factions 2.0's economy being destroyed by duplicated items, we have decided that there will be a FULL FACTIONS RESET, this means that it's not just a map or inventory reset, it's everything. Your ranks, kits, money, inventory, enderchests, bases, claims, factions, all wiped out.
- We have also decided that it will not just be a simple reset, making it Factions 3.0 instead of Factions 2.1, the new version of factions will have different features!
As you may have found out, there were people who were duplicating items and distributing them in Factions. It has messed with the economy which has become a large issue.
I will code a fix for duplicating items, but I need to find out how they are duplicating them. If anyone can find a way to duplicate items, please start a conversation with me on this website so I can prevent it from working.
Once I finish the fix for it, should we reset Factions or should we load the backup from the 18th of this month? Please vote in the poll. Also what version of Minecraft should we use in Factions? Currently it is 1.10 but we can go back to 1.8 if you all want us to.
As many of you have noticed, 1.10 has been released. It is an interesting yet light update to Minecraft that doesn't add anything controversial. We will add 1.10 support once our multi-version plugin is at a stable state, since the 1.10 compatible version was released only 12 hours ago and therefore is likely to contain countless bugs that we do not want on a public server. If possible, we will eventually add universal 1.7 - 1.10 support.
As for the lack of players, they are caused by several things and it is impossible to find the initial source. Once a player drop happens from one event, it causes some people's friends to leave, making them leave. That is why small things have led to substantially lower player counts. Once all staff are done with school for the 2015-2016 school year, we will get to work on the much anticipated update for Prison, Prison 2.0.
KitPVP version 3.0 has been released after more than 2 months of hard work! Together all of the staff have put 500 + hours into this update, which is really impressive considering all of the staff have school and/or jobs to manage.
Here is the trailer:
Before you complain about 1.9 you need to at least give it a try, and there are several reasons:
We have removed the 1.9 hit cooldown/delay in every game (except for "Talent" for those that actually want it)
1.9 has a lot of new features that improve gameplay, notably duel wielding, new arrows, the elytra, and lingering potions.
There will be fewer hackers in 1.9 due to the hacked clients being targetted towards the more popular 1.7-1.8 versions, and 1.9 is fairly new and internally changed making it harder for them to make hacked clients work effectively.
