| CHANGELOG 2.1
Hello again, SpaceDeltans! It's almost the end of the season, and what an intense season it's been! Before we start talking about some of the changes that will be made over the next season, here are the changes we've deployed since the last newsletter!
► Added boss-bars for ability activations and deactivations
► Fixed performance issues with the Siren "Fountain of Luck" and "Days of Salem" abilities
► Experience notifications are now visible via the bossbar when gaining Species XP
► Fixed issue where rank vouchers would sometimes not give out ranks
► Fixed performance issues with mobstacking plugin
► Fixed issue where some mobs were not completely static / had AI
► Temporarily removed Hordes due to them being bugged; will fix and re-introduce next season.
► Added guardian spawners to F Top
► Buffed lapis, gold and wheat prices due to the progression of the economy
► Nerfed pumpkin prices due to an exploit with the store
► Temporarily removed cosmetic crates due to an issue with the cosmetic plugin; will fix and re-introduce next season.
Some of these changes may already be active, but ALL of these changes will be applied after the next reboot as of this announcement.
| SEASON END, NEW F TOP
This weekend (Sunday, 8th Nov), our second season will be ending. I'd like to extend my thanks to each player who participated in the season and made it an engaging experience for everyone involved. Factions rose to and fell from power in a season of combat, betrayal and deceit, and it was thrilling to watch. As a reminder, F Top prizes for our last season have been changed to the following:
Fifth Week - $1050 PayPal, $675 Buycraft
1st Place: $500 PayPal, $250 Buycraft
2nd Place: $350 PayPal, $250 Buycraft
3rd Place: $200 PayPal, $175 Buycraft
It's already Friday, meaning that some factions might be making a final push to bring their opponents down with any means necessary -- to all competing factions, happy raiding, and best of luck defending your bases.
| SEASON 3 - A NEW CHAPTER
Another newsletter will be made when the season is closer to release, but here are some tentative changes we might be making in our new season of Factions Earth.
