    Good Morning MineSuperior!

    Season 25 of Factions Mystic officially ends today at 4PM EDT. That is when the final payout will be calculated and prizes awarded to the winners. As Raj mentioned earlier this week with his post on the future of competitive game modes on MineSuperior, Factions will be undergoing some changes.

    First and foremost I want to reassure everyone that Factions will still be a part of the MineSuperior Network. Currently we have no plans of abandoning the gamemode. Quite the opposite actually, as many of you know we have been working behind the scenes on multiple improvements to Factions that were scheduled to be phased in slowly over a transition period of a couple of months. Due to the accelerated timetable around a necessary rework we have had to push up the deadline on many projects. It is going to take some time to revamp Factions and release a brand new season with all of our goals and content accomplished while still complying with the EULA enforcement. This downtime is expected to last a minimum of 3-4 weeks as we finish up and polish new content as well as refine a vast majority of our current Factions content.

    Now, instead of turning the Factions server off for a week we have decided to keep the current map live until we are ready to relaunch a brand new season. Obviously the same map would be boring if we didn't spice things up so we have plenty of fun surprises planned over the next few weeks. In terms of nomenclature, we are calling this our "Kitmap" which we intend to be a fully unique and customizable experience.

    What this means for you:
    -An extension of the current factions season where traditional payout will be removed. There will however still be prizes and other incentives offered as rewards to different events which will be announced as they happen.
    -The spawn, all claims, and world protections will remain intact and not be removed as is traditional on End of The World.
    -All Factions will remain intact and able to continue grinding value, defending their bases, and raiding at their own pleasure.
    -A full in game crate rebalancing has been added which features the addition of two brand new crates: Kit and Elite. Kit Crate will allow players to redeem a key in order to receive 1 randomly selected premade kit that is already on the server (Yes, Gkits are included). Elite Crate will feature items that were originally only accessible via the Server Store such as: trench/tray pickaxes, sell wands, sandbots, chunk busters, etc. You will have the chance to receive a Kit or an Elite Crate Key from any of the previous crates (Vote, Premium, Titanic, etc.) as well as being available through Envoys, and Vote Parties. I also imagine that there will be quite a few keyalls over the next few weeks to make sure everyone can have a chance to use these items.
    -A chance to help shape the future of MineSuperior Factions with constructive feedback and suggestions through the proper channels.
    -Keeping all your items, kits, perks, etc. for the time being while we rework everything.

    What this means for us:
    -A long overdue break of trying to cram as much content in during a 23 hour reset as possible.
    -Time to properly balance all kits, crates, economy aspects of the server to remove any Pay 2 Win incentives and instead focus on rewarding proper grind and competition.
    -The ability to finish major content updates that were delayed/stalled due to the need to actively support a live factions server that resets every 3 weeks.
    -A chance for all staff to be able to play factions without any issues involving bias. This will help tremendously in the long run by allowing staff who aren't acquainted with the game mode to learn more. Once the new season of Factions launches we intend to revert to the old rule preventing staff from playing Factions to allow them to focus on Staffing it instead.
    -The factions section of store.minesuperior.com will be temporarily disabled while we work on reworking factions.

    At 4PM EDT today while we are collecting payout we will be implementing our new changes. We will also be releasing an extremely limited edition Mystic Tag that will only be available for players that are online during the transition period. This Custom tag will be unique and given to all online players regardless of rank. It's safe to mention that tags and ranks will be persisting through to the new era of Factions so there should not be any worry about losing those.

    As for the planned New Season
    At this time we will not be releasing any more details immediately regarding the revamped season. A detailed post will come out regarding the full changes including what will be kept/changed as we get closer to the launch date.

    Any questions please feel free to ask below or reach out on discord! All event announcements will be in the factions announcements channel on discord!
