There will be a total of 20 corners, these being the following

๐Ÿ’‚โ€โ™‚๏ธ New! Bandit Bases
This season we will bring you something exciting. We are proud to announce a new unique mechanic coming to PikaNetwork OpFactions, Bandit Bases!
The Bandit Bases are located within the Bandit World, a flat bedrock that resets every day and generates different types of bases that you can your Faction can raid.
Raid a Bandit Base and gain the loot these bandits have been storing inside, the first faction that raids that base will be the winner and can claim the rewards in the Bandit Bases rewards menu. You can toggle the permission for what role in your faction can access these rewards, once you have taken them out the rewards menu will be cleared and waiting to be filled up again with some Juicy Bandit Loot.
๐Ÿ†™ Raid different tier bases
These Bandit Bases come in three different tiers. Tier I, II, and III.
Not only will the rewards be based upon the Base Tier, also the difficulty of raiding them will be based on the base tier you have found within the Bandit Base world.
The Bandit Bases will have a new type of wall with different durabilities, the amount of walls depends on the tier of the base.
โšกThe wrath of the Tesla Tower
You didn't think these Bandits would store their loot unprotected, would you? Once you stumble upon a Tier III Bandit Base the action will start. As soon as you start shooting at this base the giant Tesla Tower will shoot high voltage beams towards the cannon shooting at the base. This lightning will target a dispenser in your cannon, so you have to make sure to keep an eye out on your cannon, repair it, and continue the raid.
Once you have successfully breached the Tier III base you will be rewarded with crazy loot!
Some extra information about the Bandit Bases:
โฐ Every day at 6 PM CET the Bandit Base world will open and will stay open until the end of the day.
๐Ÿ’ฃ Once the world is open, you and your faction can use /warp bandit to get teleported into that world.
โš”๏ธ As we already have the Dark Zone we will be disabling PVP for this world, this can, later on, be changed according to player feedback, but we feel like it would be nice to have some casual raiding action for great rewards.

๐Ÿ’ฐ New! Faction Bank
It is important to be able to share and work together as a Faction with ease. For this season we will be finally improving the faction bank and adding more currencies to this bank as well as transaction logs for deposits and withdrawals.
You can now use /f bank to access the following currencies:
๐Ÿ’ธ Money - Use /f bank money to access.
๐Ÿงช Experience - Use /f bank exp to access.
๐Ÿ‘พ Mob Coins - Use /f bank mobcoins to access.

All of these bank deposits and withdrawals will now be logged, view who used the faction bank using /f bank logs.


๐Ÿ’€ New! Black Market
As we are looking into making PvPing more rewarding we will be adding the Black Market to OpFactions.
This Black Market comes with a new currency: Souls. These souls can be obtained by killing players, and they will sometimes drop when you kill mobs as well.
Open up the /blackmarket and start spending your souls on valuable items.
These items have a limited amount of stock and will only be refilled once a day, so make sure to keep your eye out for these juicy soul items.
Some of the items that you can purchase with Souls are:
Armor Pieces
Swords
Axes
Special Sets
With this change, we hope the grinding and PvPing will feel more rewarding for the players.



๐Ÿ๏ธUpdated! Dark Zone
It's time to update the Dark Zone. After receiving feedback we noticed how important it is to make the Dark Zone worth your time, due to this we will be buffing the rewards from the boss loot bags, and the mini mobs spawning in the Dark Zone.
All of the mini mobs will now drop new unique materials that you can sell for a lot in the /shop.
Besides getting a whole brand new Dark Zone world we will also be introducing 2 new bosses to the roster of Dark Zone Bosses.
๐Ÿง› Vampire Boss๐Ÿ’š Goblin Boss
This boss will attack you with its bloody nightmares and will drain the life straight out of you as soon as you enter his territory.The goblin loves gold and will do anything to defend it, even throwing his own gold as a weapon toward you.
๐Ÿ›ก๏ธUpdated! Armor Durability
We heard you, the PvPing isn't as it used to be, people can PvP without a helmet, sets take ages to break, and overall it's just not a fun experience anymore.
That's why for this season we will be adding the Armor Durability change, this durability change comes with a few changes to make PvP feel more enjoyable again.
Quick Drop
A new skill for axes that are instantly unlocked, you will deal double the damage with an axe to users that are not wearing a helmet, this makes the user required to make full armor sets once again, and they can no longer walk around without a helmet.
Faster durability
The durability of armor will now be 15% less, so your sets will break 15% faster.

๐Ÿ‘น Updated! Masks
Because we added two new bosses into the Dark Zone it only makes sense to add two more masks according to those boss themes as well!
With the introduction of the Vampire Boss and the Goblin Boss, we will be adding the Vampire Mask and Goblin Mask
๐Ÿง› Vampire Mask๐Ÿ’š Goblin Mask
Deal 50% more damage to bleeding enemies.
3% chance to steal the life of your opponent when you damage them.
5% chance to receive Regeneration VI on low health.
Chance to gain Speed V on Low Health to escape.
Gain a permanent x1.5 Experience Boost.
Take 5% less damage from enemies.

๐Ÿฆ’Updated! Pets
The Pets have been a great addition last season, but they are in need of a change.

We will be buffing the earned pet experience, and adding an item that you can obtain in-game, a Rare Candy. This candy will instantly add another level to your pet once you dragged it upon it inside your inventory.
With this, we hope that the pets are more accessible to anyone and are worth the usage to level them up to get even better buffs.
On top of that, we are adding 3 new pets as well that will help you out.

๐Ÿ„ Cow Pet๐Ÿ•ธ๏ธSpider Pet๐Ÿฆ Rhino Pet
When used you will regain the number of hunger bars that you have lost. The amount of restored hunger bars depends on the pet's level.When used you will put nearby players inside 1 cobweb for 5 seconds. The number of players that can be affected increases depending on the pet's level.When used it will knock back all nearby players, except your faction members of the course. The knockback depends on the pet's level.

Besides the addition of three new pets, we also will be making moves on the 2 strongest pets, Camel and Duck. We will be giving these two pets the appropriate needed nerfs to make them more balanced and fit into the game better. Next to the nerfs are some buffs, the Bear Pet will receive a buff and will give hearts according to the current ones you already have and will add it on top of it, as well as giving it more hearts.
๐ŸŒŒUpdated! KOTHs
The KOTHs are a great aspect to get players into more action. To support this aspect we will be buffing the rewards for KOTHs a bit, especially on the weekends. On the weekends you will now earn way better rewards when you captured a KOTH, so you have more reasons to hop into the Warzone on your free days to take up some extra rewards to help you out.

A new special set has also been added, the KOTH Special Set. This Special Set is perfect for PvPing and will boost your damage, but also reduce the amount of damage you are receiving. If you are lucky it might even give you a bunch of experience when you wear this set while helping to capture a KOTH.
We also added a few new sets that can only be obtained from the special weekend KOTH loot.

โš™๏ธFixed! Bugs
We did our best to polish and fix as many existing bugs inside the OpFactions server. We have looked through all the bug reports and managed to fix them. If you come across any bugs with the new release, make sure to report them at our forums under the bug reports section.
Here are a few of the bugs we squished out:
  • Fixed Serrated Strikes hitting yourself.
  • Fixed bleeding effect applying wrong.
  • Fixed sandlots disappearing.
  • Fixed vouchers from Mystery Crates
  • Fixed KOTH sets.
  • Fixed player-level issues.
  • and many more.
๐Ÿ“‘ Misc. Updates and changes.
After receiving some suggestions about modifying a couple of things, we have decided to make the following modifications in order to make everyone's Factions experience much better. We have modified a few features which were present on the previous map, and here is the list including those modifications, along with a justification for the majority:
  • Updated all plugins​
  • Updated /payouts menu​
  • Updated seasonal crate rewards​
  • Re-did some of the faction rules​
  • Tweaked the Anti Cheat​
  • Made GKit raider give a voucher for TNT.​
  • Added more KOTH starters.​
  • Updated special sets their theme for this season.​

Please note: Any suggestions for changes feel free to leave them in the comments.
