Intro

As we near the end of a fun-filled decade, one in which the majority of memories for many were made, we begin to embrace the change that is inevitable, both in life and in our amazing community. As we conclude our private beta and wrap up development, we look to open the refreshed and renewed doors of Karismic Factions to the public. After weeks of thorough testing and months of deep development, we open KarismicMC with a multitude of new, engaging features, with the confidence and promise that this will simply be the best season yet. We are ready to embark on a new journey with our community, hoping to provide an intensified, exciting and ever-changing environment for players, and factions, to thrive in.

Changes

The amount of changes that will be put in place at the start of Season 3 is astronomical. They include; significant rule changes, new enchants, new bosses, introduction of masks and addition of a new top rank, all hoping to affect gameplay in a way not yet seen within Karismic. With the great staff team working in conjunction with our hardcore player base we were able to rat out and fix what we hope is the majority of bugs in the economy and new content through the private beta, to help the season run as smoothly as possible. This season is one adapted to what our growing community wants and demands, with shorter seasons, more giveaways, more events, more sales, and most importantly, more fun.

New Content:
  • Fixed Cannoning/Printer - We have purchased a new premium spigot jar which will greatly enhance the cannoning/printer performance, as well as server performance in general.
  • Upgradable Harvest Hoe - Every player will start with one of these and you will earn honor while farming cane. The upgrades the hoe has are: Sell Multiplier, Honor Multiplier, EXP Finder, Key Finder, Spawner Finder, and Engram Finder. The cane you mine while using this hoe contributes to your /canetop score.
  • Upgradable Sell Wand -...
Hey everyone,

Today we will install our second update of season 2. This update was focused on revamping the Honor currency. We began our revamp on Honor around the same time last season, and will continue to keep adding features that tie into the currency. In addition to continuing our Honor revamp, we fixed numerous bugs and other issues with a few new things sprinkled in.

KING SHOP REVAMP

The old, boring King Shop


The new, revamped King Shop​

The King Shop was very underwhelming; it sold the same, boring items and was not rewarding for the amount of grind it took to earn these items. The King Shop underwent a complete revamp, there are now 2 sections within the shop: Standard and Special. The Standard shop features items like, but not limited to: Sell Wands, Boosters, Fly Vouchers, and Donor Kits.The Special shop features items like: Random God Kits, Random Ancestral Guardians, Random Spawners, Bundles from /buy, and so much more. The Standard shop refreshes every 3 days, and the Special shop refreshes every 5 days. What does refresh mean you might ask? It means that there will be different items for you to purchase every time the shop refreshes! So now there are more items for you to work for.

MID SEASON SALE + SEPTEMBER 2019 DONATION GOAL
Effective at 4pm EST, there will be a 60% SALE on our store for 1 week! Make sure to pick up the new bundles, ranks, and keys during this time to secure you Factions spot on /ftop! There is still over 300$ to be won so make sure to set your faction up for success!

We set our September 2019 Donation Goal to $250! Reaching this goal would help us out immensely, we have our sites set on upgrading the server and the cannon jar, and so many other things. Please support the server to help us progress and continue to provide Karismic Factions.

Karismic Factions – Season 2
play.karismicmc.com

Introduction:

As a 3 week-long maintenance break comes to an end in just a matter of an hour be ready for a drastically transformed Karismic Factions. Follow us on a journey, grinding your way through the 2-month-long action-packed season that we have installed for you; from weekly giveaways to bi-weekly faction top payouts, totalling to $600. Not only have we introduced new gameplay features but also a renewed and rejuvenated player base with a multitude of new factions pledging to be there for what is planned to be a record-breaking opening.

What changes have been made:

In the past month or I, along with the staff team, have been working overtime behind the scenes to keep the cogs turning in this massive machine. So, it is with great pleasure to finally release to the Karismic community the changes that will be put in place to help improve the gameplay and server satisfaction. The total of over 50 changes are split into 3 main categories – New Features, Custom Enchants, Miscellaneous. Which can be found below with varying detail depending on their significance. Due to there being so many new features/changes we've decided to compile a imgur album instead of posting the amount of pictures in this post that the album contains

Miscellaneous changes:

- New and unique spawn/warzone (thanks to Hawk)

- Fixed name-changing issue where you would lose all possessions when changing your name through Mojang website.

- Potions now run async.

- Enabled / Allowed printer

- Disabled McMMO double drops from mining, herbalism, and wood cutting.

- Capped all McMMO skills at level 1000

- Disabled health bar from McMMO

- Revamped voting milestones

Hey everyone,

Season 1, overall was a failure. Although we made significant progress: Moving our operation to a dedicated server, purchasing a premium cannoning jar, and overall growth; we overlooked core mechanics that led to a negative game play experience and had vague rules/staff guidelines that contributed to our poor officiating. The reason for this post is to let everyone know the plan for the server going forward; every decision we've made has been made with the player's best interest in mind. It would not be fair to everyone that has supported the server to hand out rewards for a season riddled with exploit abuse and poor staff officiating, so we've decided to end the season early and double up on rewards for season 2. We are not completely disregarding the rewards for season 1, the top 3 factions before maintenance (moving to the dedicated server) can claim their respective store credit. The weeks leading up to season 2 will be dedicated to: refining existing features from season 1, creating new content for season 2, but the main emphasis will be on finalizing a rule set and staff guidelines to be completely transparent on what is allowed and what is not. You can find the top 3 factions from before maintenance below, as well as a road map outlining our plan for season 2 in depth.

Top Factions:
#1: Cow - (50$ Buycraft)
#2: RESISTANCE (disqualified)
#3: NSFW (40$ Buycraft)
#4: FBI (30$ Buycraft)

Factions Season 2
Release Date: 8/10/19, 4pm EST (https://everytimezone.com/s/85fc926b)
Season Length: 2 months/8 weeks/56 days (8/10/19 - 10/5/19)
Total Payouts: ($300 Paypal/$300 Buycraft)
Each Payout: Bi-Weekly (#1 50$ PayPal/50$ Buycraft, #2 25$ PayPal, #3 25$ Buycraft)

Hi Everyone,

Today we implemented 3 incentive programs which are designed to reward players. The way in which you earn these rewards varies for each program, but here is a brief overview of each...

Invite Rewards: Very straight forward, you invite players to the discord server with your own invite link (instructions explained on the discord, #invite-rewards channel) and each invite adds to your total. These invites act as currency and you can cash them in for store credit and other rewards linked to each invite reward. Please note that invite rewards act as currency, they do NOT stack and do NOT expire.

Nitro Rewards: This program is designed for users who have Discord nitro (Must be the $9.99 a month subscription, Nitro-classic users ($4.99 a month) users are not allowed to access Discord's nitro boost feature. Boosting our discord server for a full month will reward you with $10 store credit, and each consecutive month you hold this boost the amount of store credit you receive will be increased by $2.50 (Maximum: $25). In addition to YOU receiving compensation for giving us your nitro boost, we will unlock amazing perks: animated server icon, invite background, vanity url, up to 150+ bonus emoji slots, and so much more.

Leader Rewards: Leaders of large factions and/or islands that span multiple servers can receive store credit for getting their members to play on Karismic MC. Specific reward details are available on the discord. Not every Faction/Island can apply for this program, there are requirements that must be met.

Enjoy!
Dear Karismic Factions Community,

It is with great pleasure that I present to you the mid-season update for factions season 1. This update has been in the works for over a month, and saying we are excited to release it is an understatement. This post is going to be extremely long, so if you want to pick and choose which sections you read, check the bullets directly under this paragraph.

Mid-Season Update:
  • Outposts
  • Spawner Tax
  • Honor Economy Revamp
  • EXP Economy Revamp
  • Miscellaneous Changes
  • Mid-Season Sale
  • New Store Packages
  • Mid-Season Giveaway
  • July 2019 Donation Goal

Outposts
Outposts are essential to new-age factions. They are a capture the point style event that never ends. Yes, you heard me right; Outposts run 24/7/365. Your goal as a Faction is to capture an Outpost, and to hold it as long as possible. Along the way you will need to fight accordingly to the Outpost's limits, defeat the Outpost's Guardians, and fight other Factions. Once your Faction has successfully captured an Outpost, you will passively earn Outpost specific rewards such as: EXP Multipliers (Entire Faction), McMMO EXP Multiplers, Mob Drop Multipliers (Only when killing mobs/Entire Faction), Permanent Potion Effects (Entire Faction), and Miscellaneous Commands (Faction Leader Only).
  • To teleport to Outposts, you must open the Outpost menu (/outpost) and click on the Outpost's item. Factions controlling an Outpost you will warp directly to the capture point. Any Faction not controlling the Outpost will be teleported to a safe warp area above the Outpost.
  • Outpost limits do exactly what they sound like, they limit the usage of certain items at the Outpost. As of the mid-season update, possible Outpost limits are No Swords, No Bows, No Axes, No Golden Apples, No Enderpearls, and No Potions
  • When attempting to capture an Outpost, you must be in a Faction....
Hi Everyone,

Giveaway:
For the release of the server, we set a donation go for 100$. This donation goal was obliterated within the first couple days, so we decided to set the bar higher. We set a new goal of 500$, and we are currently at $422.17. If we are able to reach the new donation goal by the mid season update (7/2/19) we will do a large giveaway including ranks, permanent god kits, season one tags, and a monthly crate.

Pre Mid Season Update:
Factions season one has been underway for around two weeks now and with that in mind, our next focus is on the mid season update. The mid season update is planned to introduce new content, but not to break or change any core game mechanics mid season. Changes to core game mechanics will be updated between seasons. The reason for this announcement is we wanted hear from our players, and see what YOU as the players want to see for the mid season update. We have plenty in mind, but our focus is to make the community happy. If you have any ideas, questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to reply to this post.
