FACTIONS NOTICE
Over the past few days there have been reports of items disappearing from enderchests on Factions. In order to fix this issue we need to swap the system powering enderchests, however doing so will result in all players losing the items they currently have in their enderchest. We do not want this to happen, however the only way to prevent players losing items is to ask everyone to remove their items from their enderchest so we can fix the item disappearance bug.

This Means:
All players that play on the Factions server on Shadowblockz MUST empty everything out of their enderchest by Monday 24th April 20:00 BST.

On Monday 24th April at 20:00 BST we will be effectively resetting all enderchests on Factions in order to fix the bug. So we encourage everyone who has valuable items in their enderchest to empty it out into a normal chest by the time specified.

We will NOT be held responsible for any loses if you refuse to acknowledge this warning, meaning we will not be giving any refunds for any loses. So please, tell your friends.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused, we assure you that this process will be worthwhile as it will stop your items disappearing from enderchests.

Thank you for understanding :)


Enderchests on Factions have been reset!

The way death messages work on Factions have now been changed so players can have a further insight into how players died. When a player dies you will now be able to click on the killer's name or the name of the person who died to view their inventory. Players are also coloured in death messages now in correlation to relationships between factions. Examples can be seen below.

Player inventory snapshots are only able to be viewed for 60 seconds after the death happens.

Death Messages can still be toggled by running the command: /deaths or /deathmessages​

Hello!

I gotta own my mistake. I straight up forgot to do the bi-weekly. I was too focused on

FACTIONS RESET!

This was a quick update, and a lot of bugs are still being exterminated. If you do find any bugs, feel free to either start a conversation with any staff members, or make a post under “Bugs.”

Information on the reset, including new things, can be found here. (http://shadowblockz.com/threads/factions-reset.11347/unread)

Another thing that happened recently was the completion of the King’s Castles! Event. GraciePoPo came in first place with a massive stunning mansion. It blew away the judges. Everyone who competed had a wonderful time, and sadly it was their last. It was my last event personally.

We hope you all welcome @instinct to his new position as Moderator! He has been quite the help as it seems his ability to enforce the rules is exceptional! This change was made last night.

That is all the news that has happened. Hope you all enjoy the new factions reset. See you again in one week and 6 days!

Ever wanted to add your own personal twist to our KitPvP server?
We are allowing you to do just that!


Event Description & Information:

Team up with your friends, if you so desire, and create a monument for all in the KitPvP realm to see. A monument to stand above the rest, tall and proud, as a community symbol for what we stand for. Whether strategically useful or aesthetically pleasing, the community is what you make it!

Our definition of a ‘monument’ is a small building/structure that will be somewhere in the KitPvP map after the event has been judged. It is not to have too much impact on gameplay, but should definitely be noticeable and decorative. You (and your team members) skull and name will accompany the build, so all Kit PvP players can show their admiration for your talent.

This event will be taking place on our creative server (/server Creative) on Saturday the 15th 7 pm BST until Sunday the 16th 7 pm BST (more time zones are listed later on in the thread). Essentially, you and your partner (if you choose to have one) will be given these 24 hours to plan, create and polish your build. During that time the plot will be accessible to you and your other team member (if you’re building a team). - more info to be released regarding plots.
.
Builds will then be judged by the staff team, to try and avoid as much bias as possible. Staff members that are participating in the event will be forbidden from judging, as we are aiming for the fairest decision possible. After judging has taken place, our lovely owner will add your token rewards and, of course, your monument to the KitPvP server!

All creations will be viewed (unless disqualified) with the top prize gaining their build in the KitPvP arena! Other prizes will also be distributed to the 2nd and 3rd places. Read below for more information about prizes.

Please note that to join the Creative server, you must be running the latest version of Minecraft, but you may only build with 1.8 blocks (more information in the Rules section). Worldedit will be disabled for the entirety of the event. We’d prefer for players to build ‘old-school’ style - we’re not expecting big builds from y’all so that shouldn’t be too much of an issue anyway.

We aim to post results and a brief wrap-up roughly 2 hours after the event ends.

You may sign up by yourself or in teams of two
.
*Please Note* If you are playing in a team, only one team member needs to sign-up for both of you, please be sure to include both IGNs.

Sign up at the following link:

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1...5e3zCJMda5hTgig7mf0eZFTQ/viewform?usp=sf_link

Prizes:

1st » 3500 Tokens (or 1750 each if playing in teams of two) to use anywhere on the Shadowblockz network and their monument placed somewhere on the KitPvP server!

2nd » 2500 Tokens (or 1250 each if playing in teams of two) to use anywhere on the Shadowblockz network.

3rd » 1500 Tokens (or 750 each if playing in teams of two) to use anywhere on the Shadowblockz network.

Rules:

Builds may not contain any signs, skulls, chests/enderchests, lava, or 1.9+ blocks/items.
Builds may not contain any inappropriate structures that we would generally punish for (use common sense).
All Shadowblockz rules that would normally apply will be in effect. You can find a full list of official Shadowblockz rules at the following link: http://shadowblockz.com/threads/server-rules.1278
Builds are to be original, and your own work. If it is proven that you are breaking this rule, you and your teammate will be disqualified from the event immediately.

Time Conversions:

If you’re wondering when this event will be taking place in your time zone, look no further as we have compiled a list of a few time zones for your convenience:

GMT » Saturday the 15th - Sunday the 16th, 6 pm.
EST » Saturday the 15th - Sunday the 16th, 2 pm.
CST » Saturday the 15th - Sunday the, 16th, 1 pm.

This is designed to be a more casual event with no check-in required, I hope you all enjoy yourselves!

Good luck and happy building!

- Harvey/Pizza ~ Admin & Event Manager
