New head selection store
The server has gone a long time without a proper thing to spend your points on. There's point classes, but most active players have already bought most of them. Because of this we have now added a new purchasable item: custom heads!
These heads can be purchased in the lobbies and each team has their own. The headtypes are Gondor, Rohan, Dwarf, Goblin, Uruk-hai and Orc. Each of these have 5 to 7 selections that can all be bought. Two of those selectable heads are donator-only heads.
There are also some classes that have their own head, unchangable by the player's preference. These classes are: White Wizard, Gondor Wizard, Rohan Mage, Black Uruk, Gundabad Orc, Dale Swordmaster, Elven Lord, Elven Archer, Troll and Berserker. All of these head are original skin heads and every team has their own now, so people can no longer show their own skin's head.
Prices of these heads vary from 2 500 points to 35 000 points, the most expensive heads are the 'character' heads (Thorin, Theoden, Aragorn, etc)
New updated booster system
Boosters have existed on the server for quite a while, but they've usually been of very low importance. This now changed, due to a lot of changes and variations to the old booster system.
The following changes have been made to the boosters:
➢➢ New variations are now available in the store (2x 4-hour booster, 2x 6-hour booster, etc)
➢➢ Boosters are now accessed from the lobby through the diamond "booster chest".
➢➢ New /thanks command gives user 10 points and active booster owner 50 points.
➢➢ Every 5 minutes a broadcast will tell players who's booster is on.
➢➢ Because of these changes, people who buy boosters will indirectly gain a lot of points themselves.
Make sure to check out these new boosters in the store (link) and view the changes in-game. These boosters are the exellent way to earn new points and work your way up to buying the new head variations.
Bug fixes, balancing and changes
Minecraft 1.9 has thrown some classes into being unbalanced, and they've stayed like this for a while. We've finally improved those classes to be more fair to the game in general. Along with this, there have also been made several smaller changes to make the game easier to understand for new people, and more fun to play in general.
These are all the changes:
➢➢ Restock chests are now ender chests (easier to spot)
➢➢ Restock chests now restock throwing axes
➢➢ Removed the old point shop
➢➢ Elven Lords have new blue coloured armour
➢➢ Iron and Diamond pickaxes now have +1 sharpness
➢➢ Diamond Axes have been heavily debuffed
➢➢ Weapons and armour no longer have durability
➢➢ Players now have 4 seconds of invulnerability on spawn (to prevent spawnkill)
➢➢ Non-donors can use /suicide now, but it costs them 50 points
➢➢ Disabled Pikeman for lag testing (maybe temporarily)
➢➢ Many changes to reduce lag
And that's it for this update! It's been quite a big one we've been working on for the past week. Now that the server is easier to understand for new people and more fair to play, and the new boosters and head shops will give you even more to work on. Stay tuned for more updates, as we're sure not done with them yet!
