Hey all,

We've been thinking of the next long-term gamemode for the server for a while, and we're exploring the idea of factions.

However, we're a bit undecided on some elements of it, so we've chosen to make a poll.

Would you rather play factions on 1.8, or 1.12?

If 1.12 is chosen, obviously combat cooldown and pushing will be removed, to simulate 1.8 pvp.

Personally, I want to go with 1.12, and we'll list pros/cons of both below.

1.12 Pros/Cons:
  • We could reuse the EnlightenSpigot version on SMP, which would save us a LOT of development time, and get the gamemode out to you a lot faster.
  • More blocks for players to use, and items like the elytra/shulker
  • 1.12 is a lot clunkier than 1.8 in terms of CPU usage, game experience, and combat (even with cooldowns disabled, you still feel the hit client-side)
  • 1.12 is not a generic factions version
1.8 Pros/Cons
  • We will NOT be able to reuse EnlightenSpigot, which will cost us a lot of development time
  • Less blocks/items for players to use
  • Much better PvP, faster response times, less CPU usage, less clunky
  • 1.8 is the generic factions version most servers use
What do you think? Please vote!

P.S. This is not confirmed, don't ask about this or expect it to be coming soon, we're just brainstorming.

Dash I have a Question, How would Factions entirely work? Would it be like an anarchy server except no hacks?

I vote 1.12, as long as it can be recreated to simulate the experience of 1.8 then 1.12 is my vote.

question, will there be crates, like vote crates and such? most factions servers I know of have those and they play a massive role in game progression

There is claiming, your faction can own land, but other people still have the ability to build/break in that land

Its where you build a base with a team, raid other peoples bases, and try to be the most power faction/team on the server.
That’s sounds fun
