    In the latest map of Nebula many players were wanting to see Nebula go free to play, and so, that's what we're doing! Nebula Map 4 will be the first free to play competitive map! So get your factions together, this is gonna get juicy!


    Prize Money allocated by week
    That's right, instead of just one huge prize allocated by /f top one at the end of the map, this map will tally by week!

    Prizes will be calculated as follows:
    $2,500 PayPal
    for /f top 1 determined over 4 weeks:
    $625.00 PayPal per week (to be paid out at the end of the map)
    $1,000 Buycraft GiftCard /f top 2 determined over 4 weeks:
    $250.00 in Gift Card value (to be paid out at the end of the map)
    $500 Buycraft Giftcard /f top 3 determined over 4 weeks:
    $125.00 in Gift Card value per week (to be paid out at the end of the map)

    So if your faction is /f top 1 on week 2 and 3 at the end of the map your faction will receive a PayPal reward of $1,250. Note you may not have your alts, alt faction, obtain more than 1 f top placement.

    Grand Prizes:
    As mentioned the Buycraft and Paypal Grand Prizes listed above will be allocated weekly and paid out at the end of the map. As well, players will be able to compete for the following at the end of the map:

    First Place (/f top 1: Most faction points) at the end of the map:

    Ally / Truce Limit with Cooldown
    As requested by the community factions will have a limit to 2 Truces and 2 Allies with a 24hr cooldown. If you truce 2 factions and you choose to neutral one of them, you will not be able to truce a different faction until after 24hrs AFTER your last accepted /f truce command was run.


    Reduced /f upgrade cost
    Another request from the community was to balance the cost of /f upgrades considering the length and duration of the map. Players playing Nebula Map 4 will note a decrease in /f upgrade cost by 30%.


    Reduced Point cost during the first week
    Considering the weekly tally for the Nebula Prize players should note that during the first week of Nebula point cost through /fp buy will be reduced by 25%.


    Strongholds
    A more traditional take on Outposts, players on Nebula will have the opportunity to compete for Specialty Perks, points, and Rewards by dominating and controlling one of the two Strongholds.

    Commands:
    /strongholds
    /help strongholds

    Rewards:
    Each stronghold has its own unique perks as well, once every hour 20x points and a reward from the KOTH loot table will be given alternating between the two strongholds. This means that if rewards are given at Infernal at 11am, the next rewards should spawn at Frozen at noon, then Infernal and so on.


    Infernal
    [​IMG]
    Specialty Perks

    • Flight in Faction, Ally, and Truce territory regardless of /f upgrade status
    • No Key requirement to enter dungeons
    • 10% /enchanter Discount
    • No AH Tax
    Frozen
    [​IMG]
    Specialty Perks

    • Faction Point Multiplier on Application
    • No Coin Flip Tax
    • +10% bonus jackpot tickets
    • /stronghold sell (operates like /sell hand but for strongholds)
      • $2000/Emerald Block
      • $400/Iron Block
      • $500/Gold Block

    Strongholds are physical locations within the overworld.
    • Rewards including KOTH items will be awarded in the sell room accessible by the controlling faction within the chest.
    • Rewards are awarded alternating between the two Strongholds every 1 hour
      • This means that if rewards are first awarded at Frozen Stronghold they will, in one hour, be awarded at Infernal Stronghold
    • Players must run to a Stronghold to Cap it and mine through the walls to "break" inside.
    • Players can mine through ANY exterior wall of the Stronghold
    • Blocks in the protective walls of the Stronghold have increased durability requiring 15 hits per block to break.
    • Enderpearls do not work within the Stronghold
    • Once inside players can capture the Stronghold by standing on the cap point in the center
    • The more players on a cap point the faster it caps
    • Once a faction controls a Stronghold a contesting faction must first break the cap of the previous faction then re-cap to gain control
    • The faction that controls Stronghold is able to repair the walls with normal blocks (ie: stone, stone brick etc) but not high durability blocks (such as obsidian)
    • If a player from outside a faction capping or contesting a Stronghold enters the cap zone the cap time will freeze and the Stronghold will show as contested.
    • Only faction members of the controlling faction are able to access and use [Sell Room] and Sell Signs
    • Factions are only able to control one Stronghold at a time
    • Buffs from a controlled Stronghold affect only the controlling faction and apply throughout the Planet.

    Get your faction ready! Nebula Map 4 Releases September 7, 2018
    5pm CST / 10pm GMT / 11pm UTC+1 / 8am AET
