Hey guys,

I know everyone has been waiting probably all week for this post so I thought it's about time that I make it. Factions is going to be releasing at 10AM Saturday (17th of June) Perth, Western Australia time (GMT+8), and for anyone who doesn't really know where that is based on them I thought I'd write up a few locations and what the time will be for release:
  • 10PM Friday (16th of June) Washington DC (GMT-4)
  • 03AM Saturday (17th of June) England (GMT+1)
  • 10AM Saturday (17th of June) Perth, Australia (GMT+8)
  • 12PM Saturday (17th of June) Sydney, Australia (AEST)
If none of these times can help you out to see when the server is being released you can also use this live clock that I've got put together for the exact release time countdown: https://goo.gl/ii6tx7

If anyone has any suggestions on what we can add into Factions or Skyblock on BoostedNetwork, please leave them in the discussion section, as we will be listening heavily to your suggestions, especially on Factions.

The initial release of Factions 2.0 isn't going to be very different from the 1.0, although there'll be a lot of things changed, just not many new features, but this is only because we wanted the first week to be all about positioning yourself before all the madness starts, so here is some things that are coming on the initial release of Factions 2.0:
  • Brand new Custom Enchant system, with completely new, different named custom enchants - this system is currently in beta and we will be adding a lot more enchants every week to this, and it will be the custom enchant system on 3.0 of Skyblock.
  • Custom Factions version, made by me, containing a bunch of new handy features.
  • A completely new Bounty system.
  • A completely custom Combat Tag plugin.
  • And many more.
Once we release Factions we will be having new updates every Friday, and the first wave of...
Hey guys,

I thought I'd just let you all know that we have since shut down the current live Factions server, this is only due to the reset of Factions 2.0 coming out soon, so we're putting it on to the main network under a whitelist mode while we do the final touches to prepare for the release. If you have any questions about this please let me know in the discussion section. There will be a post some time this week containing an exact time and date for the release, so stay tuned for that.

Thanks everyone,
Hey guys,

First of all I'd like to thank everyone for all the questions and suggestions in the past month towards Factions, and I'm delighted to give you all information based on that later on in this post, and I'd also like to remind everyone, if you haven't already joined our discord, then please feel free to do that because we will be/have been posting every single tiny update to our Discord server, however we will still post the big updates on the forums too. :)

Now to get on to the exciting news about Factions, first of all I'd like to thank everyone for being so patient towards waiting for Factions to be released, and I'm very proud of how it's working out, I'm very excited for this upcoming season of Factions as it will unlock so many new never-seen before features on Minecraft. The reason that Factions is being delayed at the moment is just because the builds are not ready yet, but they'll be great so trust me, it'll be worth the wait. Also another reason for the delay on the release of Factions is because we are wanting to wait till we can find a YouTuber as we don't want to release Factions without one otherwise it'll either be a flop or majority of the people who play on Skyblock currently will play on Factions and then Skyblock will die. So we will have some exciting news on that later on, but until then if you have any suggestions on people we should look into doing a series on our server then hit us up with a PM on here. :) Now...
Hello all,

I'm sorry for this long delayed post, since either of @Herbi and I posted it was about the Skyblock 2.0 Reset, we were extremely happy with the turnout reaching nearly 200 players during the first few weeks, which has dropped off as expected. I will be from now on posting every single tiny update to Discord, so everyone can stay up to date, I will re-post the big updates here though :)

What is happening with Skyblock, why is there so much lag?
Currently with Skyblock we've implemented as much as possible without involving custom plugins which takes time sadly, otherwise we'd have around 15 Brand new plugins in Skyblock right now, that is why we're currently looking to hire more developers, what about the lag? Sadly it's an issue which is fixable but is going to take time, up-time has actually increased dramatically over the past few days but isn't noticeable as when the server starts to lag there seems to be no admin online, which is why we're lowering the boss timer to 8 hours and going to look into having an auto restart every 8 hours and 30 minutes, whereas every other server will have a 24 hour restart timer. :)

According to @AMinecraftDev 1st of June will be the latest reset date, yes we know that is still quite awhile away but it will be worth the wait, as it will be a game changing type of Factions, one that you have never seen or heard of before. It will still contain your usual features like Custom Enchants, and KoTHs and things like that, but there will be so much more on there that you'll never have seen on any other server. More to come on that later on, closer to the...
Hello all,

The time has come, to release Skyblock 2.0, Yes it has come sooner than we have expected but numerous amounts of players and staff have been asking for one, so we have ;) As most of you know Boosted has only been up for roughly five months, In the past five months we have gone through a lot, these problems which we went through helped us to grow as server owners and as a community together. Together Jack, the admins and I have been working on Skyblock 2.0 for over a month now and have already completed majority of Skyblock, the one week of beta will begin on the 3rd of March! Yes you heard right! You will only have to wait three days to check the new Skyblock :) Once this one week beta is done we estimate to have the full release on the 10th of march.

This is a small list of all the new features which will appear
  • Server will be 1.11 Based allowing 1.11-1.8 clients to join
  • Brand new custom spawn
  • New shop
  • All warns, Kicks and banned alts will be reset
  • Reworked Crates

  • Custom withdrawal plugin, so no more EXP glitches
  • Awesome new boosters such as: Fly, McMMO, Exp, Sell and voting boosters

All of the boosters will be applied to every player on the server. Below is all of the booster information :)

Brand new GUI's:

New custom drops:
Instead of Cavespider, Silverfish and Villager, The mobs that will drop custom items are Stray, Vindicator, Llama and Evoker. You will be able to obtain these spawners in crates and the shop at /boostedmine. :) Below I will add all of the drop information.

Short Questions & Answers:
What will be reset?
Money balances, mcMMO levels, inventories, enderchest contents, playervault contents, islands, and everything along those lines.

What will happen to the current server?

The current server will stay up during the one week beta on the 3rd of March (Items in auction house will be cleared when beta starts) But once the beta Is over and the official release Is in place the current skyblock will be wiped :)

What about Buycraft purchases?
Everyone who has won an official Rankupgrade will keep there rank or if you have purchased your rank through Buycraft, they will stay, however only the last two weeks of Bosses, Crates, Care packages and boosters will be sent through

How will farms work?
You will not need to have a gap between the hoppers and the lava when creating an automatic farm as the items will not burn In the lava :)

What about bosses?
The bosses have been completely re done, There will only be 4 bosses to choose from, Goblin Prince, BloodFiend, Dread Lich and Valanir The Restless, Anyone that has purchased a boss in the past two week will be given a boss that is similar in price compared to the old version. Below is a gif with some more boss information :)


What happens to 1.11 items If I am In 1.8?
When it is advised to be In 1.11 for the awesome new mobs and blocks, You still will be able to play in 1.8, The only change there will be Is, If you see a 1.11 item when you are In a 1.8 minecraft you will see a different texture oppose to what someone In 1.11 will see. For example, Shulker boxes are new to 1.11, If you are In 1.8 you will see a furnace, But the item will not change. If you have a 1.11 Item in your inventory and you decide to switch to 1.8 the item will not disappear, You will just see a different block until you go back into 1.11 and vice versa.

When the beta Is released, If you find a bug of any type, You will be rewarded upon showing a staff member.
