The Dreadfort has been added, along with an online leaderboard, and a very big update to the resourcepack!
The past weeks, there've been a lot of updates on the server. We have a new map, website updates, new 3D models in the resourcepack, and some new donator features. Let's have a look.
Dreadfort added Some people will remember the Dreadfort map from Age of War. It's a Game of Thrones related Siege between the Boltons and the Starks. The battle starts at a large bridge, and then continues in the village. The castle battle will be added later, but for now it will remain as it is.
Leaderboard added There is now an online leaderboard where people can see their ranking compared to other places. This leaderboard can be aranged by your liking, ordered based on score, kills, deaths, captures, kill-death-ratio, heals & assists. You can find a link to the new leaderboard on the top of our website, on the leaderboard tab.
Resource pack changes There have also been a lot of resourcepack updates. The resource pack is really recommended if you want the right gameplay on the server. New models include an awesome 3D Halberd axe, cool throwing axes, and a custom Gundabad mace. More models are being worked on, and we've also updated some other textures, such as iron armour and the chain helmet for Halberd. (Zoom made most of these)
Donator changes We've also been slowly balancing the donator classes. These are the main changes we've applied the past weeks:
Berserker - Extra regen now only happens when it has full food. Halberd - One resistance level removed, iron chestplate has been given projectile protection 5, now has a chain helmet. Ranger - A lot of damage tweaks to make arrow damage a bit stronger up close, unlike archer, which is mainly meant for long range. Medic - Sharpness now applies on the paper. Mage - Fireball slightly buffed. Golden helmets - Now no longer get enchantments, because this was too unfair versus normal players, and since only one team got the helmets, it unbalanced the teams a lot.
We've also started adding donator map packages. These packages will include map-specific donator classes and features. The first packages has already been released, the Moria Package. This package, as of right now, contains two classes: Axethrower, and Gundabad Orc. (Only on the moria maps)
Bug fixes We've also fixed some bugs: - Fixed dead engineers kept firing - Fixed dreadfort bridge wool not changing color - Fixed people being able to pick up stone bricks - Fixed chat filter blocking some word combinations - Fixed people losing class when dying with gold - Fixed people losing class when dying without gold - Fixed gold not giving capture points - Fixed heals being counted as only 0.2 heal - Fixed score going to NAN when a player had 0 deaths - Fixed weather being enabled sometimes - Removed snow from laketown - Fixed windlass damage - Fixed donator class heads in Laketown men lobby being orc
This week(s) we added a bunch of new stuff. The biggest highlight was Laketown. Also, new commands for donators were added and team chats are now a thing. The website now also displays the current map and a lot of things were fixed this week.
Laketown added! Laketown has been re-added on to Empire War. Fight against the orcs and defend Laketown against the bad. Remember that water will freeze you to death if you stay in it for too long. Laketown also has a new custom belltower sound which you will be able to hear.
Commands! Donators (Veteran+) now have the ability to change their join message to something custom. If you aren't already familiar with the perks donators get visit our store. Now you can also talk to your teammates with ease by just using /teamchat [<message>]. This was a highly requested addition to the server. /commands has also been updated along with /settings.
Chat filter! We recently had some major incidents regarding our chat filter. So we decided to upgrade / update that a bit. If you feel that a word should be blocked or unblocked, please contact a staff member.
Other things! The website now also shows the current map playing on the server. If you were to look into the bug report section you would see that a lot of bugs have been fixed and patched up. The resourcepack now also has some new sounds. We are still working on improving the download time and other things regarding it.
