| OPENING NOTES
Hello, SpaceDeltans! It's been a whole week since release -- and what a release it was! We've seen brawls and squabbles, new friendships forged through adversity, and lots of intense Faction action. I can't wait to see what the next week might bring; but first, let's get into our newsletter for the week.
| F TOP: WEEK 1
The following are our f top winners for week 1.
F TOP 1 | hunnibees - $75 Paypal, $75 BuyCraft
F TOP 2 | Oplument - $25 Paypal, $75 BuyCraft
F TOP 3 | nerdnecks - $50 BuyCraft
A huge congratulations to all of our winners, your hard work has paid off. Now, will they hold the throne for another week, or will they be overthrown by their rivals?
| CHANGELOG 2.0
Over the week, we've received many suggestions regarding the Factions mechanics, and have implemented some balancing changes that we believe involve the fairest middle ground for both large factions and smaller ones alike.
► We've upgraded Trench Picks to include a 5x5 version. This is obtainable from envoys, as well as from the BuyCraft.
► We've changed the max power to 420 after many requests to increase it from 300.
► Power is now regenerated at a rate of 1 power every 2 minutes, with 5 power-loss on death.
► Due to shortened seasons, players are now kicked from the faction after 10 days of inactivity, rather than 30.
Some of these changes may already be active, but ALL of these changes will be applied after the next reboot as of this announcement. In addition, please note the following rule-change to placing spawners before F Top:
► The majority of your spawners MUST be placed BEFORE each Thursday, 5PM (EST) for them to count towards F Top. While this is not enforced via Factions, staff members will be looking at place logs if your F Top values jump too steeply before Saturday -- failure to comply can lead to disqualification from FTop Payouts.
| LEGENDARY ITEMS
Some of you may know of the Legendary Items hidden around the server. For those who do not, please refer to this guide.
Here is a status update on which have been found:
★ Starfire Blade | FOUND
★ Starbane Cleaver | NOT FOUND
★ Starlight Pick | NOT FOUND
★ Starbloom Hoe | NOT FOUND
★ Starstorm Axe | NOT FOUND
★ Startouch Shovel | NOT FOUND
★ Starweaver Bow | NOT FOUND
It looks like besides the blade, everything else is still up for grabs. Happy hunting, all!
| COMMUNITY EVENT: STAFF HUNT
I'm excited to announce our very first event -- and one that involves lots of chasing and killing (the staff), at that! Prizes will include crates, tools, spawners, and maybe even hints to the locations of one of the legendary items!
Please refer to this thread for more information.
This event will take place in the wilderness around /spawn, at 2PM EST on Sunday, November 10.
See you then!
