Posted on 26 March 2015 - 09:33 PMHi, asianapple here, and I'd like to be the first one to welcome you to:
After months of work by the Factions team and the Build team under the guidance of our lord and savior Pikaoku, we've finally created a new, refreshing factions experience that we're SURE everyone can enjoy.
Let's start off with some base details going over how Factions will be running.
- The server will be run in an HCF (Hardcore Factions) format.
- Death ban length will SCALE based on amount of deaths.
- The map will be 2500 by 2500
- Warzone will be 800 by 800
- The kit for this map:
- Protection 2
- Unbreaking 3
- Feather Falling 4
- Sharpness 3
- Power 4
- Fire Aspect 1
- Flame 1
- Unbreaking 3
- Infinity 1
- No Knockback on Sword/Bow
- Speed 2 (1:30)
- Speed 1 (8:00)
- Instant Health 2
- Fire Resistance (8:00)
- Golden Apple (Un-Enchanted)
- No Strength
- No Regeneration (except for Golden Apple)
- No Enchanted Golden Apple
- No Invisibility
- Poison 1 (0:33)
- Slowness 1 (1:07)
- No Weakness
- No Instant Damage
- No Posion 2
(Keep in mind, this kit is still being tested, changes might occur until it's ready.)
Some primary goals of this Factions Server:
1. Playing as a Faction
We're encouraging people to play as big factions, rather than playing solo or having multiple little alliances between many factions. To encourage this, we're going to focus on having large scale factions fights, we're going to focus on making sure factions can safely have a large amount of members, and we're going to make the events focus on making them easier to win, and more fun to play as a bigger faction. In addition, we are completely disallowing having alliance between factions.
2. New Players
We want to ensure newer Factions Players have just as much fun and enjoy the Badlion Factions experience just as much as returning players and veteran players. To take care of this, we are setting up Staff lead factions that are focused on teaching newer players, and helping newer players achieve a spot in our Badlion Factions family. These staff members are going to be recommending and attempting to help newer players achieve spots in other, bigger factions.
Our current plan is to have the Factions server include lots of events, primarily two kinds of events:
- Events that are focused on exposing the MOST SKILLED faction
- Events that are focused on exposing the RICHEST faction
Our PVP events will be focused on rewarding the most skilled individuals and factions that have mastered team work.
Other events will focus on PvE and reflect on a factions ability to grind.
We will have normal, standard events, and the occasionally scheduled custom "Unique" event which will have higher stakes, higher costs, but with a much higher reward.
Also, the rewards and the intensity of the events will scale accordingly to how long the map is, so each event should be a playable, and fun experience for every player.
Some normal events will be featuring very often:
- Normal Scavenger Hunts
- Multiple KoTH (King of the Hill)'s every day
- Super Mine
Some unique events we will be featuring (at our discretion ;) )
- Staff v Players
- CTF (Capture the Flag)
- Mob Arena
- Super Scavenger Hunts
Now that we shared our 3 main objectives and events…
I'd like to introduce our weekly event for Badlion Factions:
Stronghold is a large scale PVP event where factions fight over control of the capture point. Throughout the week, loot is dropped periodically in the stronghold area. There is better loot inside the castle section of the Stronghold, but that area can only be opened by the faction that controls the Stronghold.
We're also looking for Youtubers and Streamers to actively play on the server, and record/upload series to the respective websites. Youtubers and Streamers will receive benefits. If you're interested, send an e-mail to [email protected]Badlion(dot)net with your In game name, a link to your Youtube Channel, and you make the rest of the application.
(Make sure to title the e-mail "Factions Youtuber/Twitch Applcation")
Lastly, on the first day of Badlion Factions, we will be hosting a special Day 1 Scavenger Hunt (an event where lots and lots of loot chests are randomly scattered throughout the warzone), which you'll be able to win some fabulous prizes from!
In this time, we will be decreasing the deathban time to 5 minutes.
PLANNED RELEASE DATE FOR BADLION FACTIONS BETA TESTING:
APRIL 4TH, 2015 AT 1 PM EST, ENDS APRIL 10th, 2015 AT 1 PM EST
The Beta Testing will be limited to Donators ONLY, and will have a limited amount of slots for those donators at the start.
We'll gradually be adding more slots as things in the server stabilize.
RELEASE DATE FOR BADLION FACTIONS (FULL):
APRIL 11TH, 2015 AT 1 PM EST
Some Final Notes:
- As time goes on, we will be posting, updating, and releasing more information and create more posts about events, balance/kit changes, etc.
- We DO plan on releasing more types of Factions servers in the future, but we've decided to pilot it out with the HCF server.
Well, that's all for this introduction of Badlion Factions.
Please take this small poll before getting hyped.
We hope to see you all on the server, very soon.
*Don't delay, join Badlion Factions today!*

As apple has mentioned, we will be adjusting the kit before and during the BETA map to the communities liking.
Posted on 26 March 2015 - 10:45 PMProbably a stupid question but, is a clan gonna be considered a faction? Or is it going to be different people if you choose
Posted on 26 March 2015 - 10:50 PMooooooooh nice
Will you be adding the kit to unranked so people can test it?
Also will donators receive any perks?
