Read this post carefully so you have the most information for next map! Hello everyone! It's that time of the season (the end of the season), that I announce the release date and some details of the next map! Every season on IntenseRaids lasts around 2 - 2.5 months to bring more action packed gameplay. When the server closes: October 21, 2017 (3:00PM EST) We will have an end of the season party where I drop ranks and coupon codes for next season and livestream some fun minigames on my youtube channel. My channel can be found here. When the next map starts: October 28, 2017 (1:00PM EST) I will be doing a drop party 1-2 hours after the reset starts. Be there! What is going to be removed? Bases, inventories, playervaults, balances, almost everything. What is going to be staying? Only ranks and things you've received from an IRNote. Why the reset? It's nearing the end of 2 months and our server has fallen to 40 players max. That was good considered good a couple of seasons ago, but we need to gain back our player base. It's not common to have a player drop at the end of the season, so don't worry. Also, we have some terrible lag on our normal factions server. It involves some things that can't be fixed without a reset. What's going to be in next map? As far reached as it may sounds, I want IntenseRaids to be one of the top faction networks in the future. It may take a while to get there, but I'm sure we can pull it off with @Opting on our team. What we have done to make raiding easier: 1. Removed Regens on the server. 2. No water protection for spawners. 3. Creeper eggs can be placed on spawners. 4. Schematica Mod is functional. 5. TNT is way easier to get, drops from creepers + low prices on shop. What we are doing to bring more PVP: 1. Blackmarket NPC that will sell essential exclusive items that shop will not have. PVP will be enabled around it so you must go through people to buy/sell. 2. Outposts and KoTHs will be fully functional including Mob AI. 3. We will have bosses that will spawn randomly in the warzone. Will drop rare loot. 4. Dragon Eggs will have better drop chances. 5. A leaderboard that will rank players depending on kills / deaths. Economy changes: 1. secret, will be released a few days before reset. Hope you guys will log on for the next Season!
