    Happy New Year! All of us at MineSuperior hope that everyone has had a happy and healthy holiday season and is ready to kick off 2021! Season 22 of OP Factions is launching later today at 3PM EST and we are excited to share some new changes coming this season.



    One long-requested feature that is being implemented is the increase in /tntfill range. We have multiplied the current range by 5 and leveled out the cost to more accurately reflect the sheer number of dispensers that are used in some larger-scale cannons. You will no longer have to fly up and down your cannon spending valuable minutes spamming a command. Now, most larger cannons should need the command to be run twice at the max radius. Of course, with an increase in /tntfill range, the sand dispensers will become an issue. Instead of having to worry about overfilling your sand with TNT we are pleased to announce that we are adding custom SandBots to alleviate some of the more tedious parts of raiding. These bots will be able to be placed down above your sand comp and will spawn sand below the designated marker blocks (lapis lazuli). The only mid raid maintenance you should need to do is to top off the balance of your SandBot via a new GUI. SandBots will be able to be found in monthly crates, as well as purchasable on the MineSuperior store!



    Another feature we are adding is the ability to use /roam. Many times while raiding people wish to scout out the enemy territory and plan for where they intend to breach. Currently, we are adding the ability to use /roam to Titan and Toxic ranked players only.



    In the theme of improving the raiding experience, we are working to refine the raiding/countering rules to enhance the competitive atmosphere. We will be working with the members of the factions council to ensure that a common vision is achieved. Expect a rules update before grace period ends.



    Currently, we are still working tirelessly on some highly requested features that have proven to become a challenge such as progressive FTop and reworking the raid timer plugin to name a few. Expect an update to come out as more information becomes available.



    On a more serious note, faction strikes have been released with the following information.

    -Strikes will last for 3 weeks from the date issued

    -Factions can be strikes for excessive rule-breaking, illegal activities, ban evasion/playing with blacklisted players, blatant disrespect for staff, and more

    -Strikes are tied to the faction owner as well as any offending members

    -Attempting to evade strikes by setting up an alt faction or using an alternate account will result in even more severe punishments

    -The weight of each strike is as follows:

    -First Strike will be viewed as a warning strike

    -Second Strike will cause a 20% deduction from your FTop value on payout days

    -Third Strike will cause a total of a 40% deduction from your FTop value on payout days

    -Fourth Strike will cause a total of a 60% deduction from your FTop value on payout days

    -Fifth Strike will lead to total DQ from payout



    Now that we’ve shared a few of the new and exciting things that are being rolled out for this season, let’s go over the details.
