Bringing Back the Fun to Factions
Remember the days when Factions used to be fun? Remember that adrenaline rush you had when you first got raided? I know we do! We want to make Factions fun again. That, unfortunately will require a bit of sacrifice, but it's worth it. Just factions. No confusion.
We've striven to make our server as simple as possible. On Sky Lair, the focus is on Factions. The Faction gamemode was made to be competitive! When servers give out free diamonds to everyone, it ruins that competitive aspect. We've tried our best to keep Factions competitive.
It's always devastating to log onto a server that you've spent hours of time on and see that all your progress is gone-- because of a server reset. We plan to keep our map for as long as is physically possible! That means your builds will always be accessible. We also back up our server every single day, and back it up to an external location every week. We know that bad things out of our control are bound to happen, but we will be prepared! You can rely on us!
A Powerful Economy
We've tried our best to keep a dynamic economy. Rather than sell everything in one central server shop, our players are given a chance to rent and build their own shops! And because of that, our economy is dynamic. It changes based on what the players think are good prices.
Diamonds Have Worth
How many servers nowadays do you see that have donator kits that give things like "3 sets of Protection IV Diamond Armor” or that give you free diamond armor the moment you join? That ruins the entire economy! As you know, diamonds are the pinnacle of a minecraft economy. Ruin the worth of diamonds, and your entire economy collapses! We think we've found the sweet spot of diamond value.
