As you are most likely aware, the player base has improved massively within the last months. It is an absolute pleasure to see the hard work of the whole team and community paying off and to see more people enjoy the server. Over the past few months, Tommy and the development team have been working non-stop, providing constant updates to keep improving the server, with the help of Giga's new tester team.
It was mentioned last year that the illegal roleplay on the server was at an all time low, with no one having any interest in creating new roleplay. The development team introduced the weapon crate system as well as a complete rework of the weed system, and the Faction Administration team concentrated on illegal factions, listening to what they needed and now the improvements are clear.
We now need to work on the legal side of things, the lowest peak we have had in the last month was 73 players and with only two legal factions, there is not much to do for a new player. Last year, we ran a competition for the best developed unofficial faction - it was judged on thread appearance, in-game roleplay, screenshots, member count, and originality. This seemed very popular with the community and we saw great factions as a result of this.
In the next three months we are looking to make two legal factions and also an additional illegal faction official. To help encourage you, those factions that get official will be rewarded with $500,000 to spend on anything for the faction.
Fancy getting involved? Here is what you need to do:
- Head to the Legal Factions area and check out the rules.
- Think of an idea for a faction, and make a cool looking template.
- Find some people you enjoy roleplaying with and set up a starting team. We recommend you do not open a faction on your own, it is hard work.
- Post your faction thread, we recommend you reserve the second post for media!
If you have any questions regarding the rules, application process, or anything about factions then please feel free to speak to us. We hope you enjoy the competition and we're looking forward to seeing the results!
