RELEASE DATE: SATURDAY APRIL 17TH @ 1:00PM EST
ManaPVP Season 11 will be launching with our own anti-cheat, called Manaray
Manaray will soon be deployed globally, starting first with ManaPVP > Factions > Parkour
What makes Manaray special?
➥ Custom. Can make immediate core changes/tweaks to improve it
➥ Off main thread. Runs silently in background having 0 affect on performance
➥ Integration. Integrates into various features on the server
➥ Extensive Checks. There is 4-6 unique check types for every major hack
➥ Auto Banning. Manaray will ban hackers on it's own. A total & weekly ban stat is visible at spawn
➥ No interference. Manaray will avoid interfering with gameplay unless to block blatant hacking. Once a minimum threshold is reached the hacker will be banned, and an announcement in chat of that ban.
We expect Manaray to have 100,000 bans within the first year
% BASED PVP EARNINGS
We have changed the kill/assist earning setup to make it more fair
➥ You must deal at least 15% damage to be counted as an assist
➥ Only 4 players max can be counted as an assist (top 4 damage dealers)
➥ If you do not deal damage within 20 seconds of death you are no longer counted for assist
➥ XP and Money is distributed amongst everyone based on % of damage dealt
➥ Whoever deals the most damage gets the kill count
MANA SHOP UPDATE
The Mana Shop has been updated with new perks!
➥ Beheaded Perk (1% chance of getting a players head on kill)
➥ 3 Custom Kill Streak Messages
➥ Kit Utility (2x Pearls, 10x EXP Bottles, 2x Gapples, 1x Speed Pot, 1x Health Pot)
➥ Arena Size Expansion (Expanded from 99x99 to 149x149)
➥ Nuke removed
The current fishing system is remaining the same, but we have also added a brand new loot table that you fish from on every 10th catch.
These rewards include Money Pouch, EXP bottles, Mana, Ender Pearls, Golden Apples, Enchantment Books, Books, OP Fishing Rod and the very rare Puff Daddy
We have also made fishing 2x faster, and blocked the water off in safezone/hidden areas
MAGIC ANVIL UPDATE
The Magic Anvil is now available to everyone!
VIPs will now be given a 50% Discount when using the anvil
The new pricing for the Magic Anvil is: (not including VIP discount)
- 100 EXP
- 20 Mana
- 50 EXP
- 10 Mana
- 50 EXP
- 10 Mana
- 25 EXP
- 5 Mana
2ND KOTH LOCATION
After filling the lake with blue glass, we revamped the pirate ship and turned it into a new KOTH location!
This means there is now double the KOTH events that happen daily
CUMULATIVE CAP TIME
Let's face it, getting knocked out of the capture zone with 30s left is rage quit worthy.
We've changed the system to be a cumulative cap time, meaning your capture time is saved if you get knocked out of the zone, and your time is continued where you left off when you capture the zone again.
If this new setup is liked, we'll also be deploying to Factions.
KOTH TREASURE CHEST
Winning the KOTH event now gives you a KOTH Treasure Key to use at spawn!
Inside the chest is very valuable prizes including Prot 3 Diamond, Prot 2 Diamond, KOTH Sword, $7000-$10,000, Kits, Titles, EXP Bottles, Mana & Golden Apples
HOURLY MANA FAIRY EVENT
We have removed all the fairy locations since it was being farmed by alt accounts for Mana.
Instead the Mana Fairy Queen will now hide herself every hour somewhere random on the map. She will give 1 hint, and the first 30 players to find her get a Mana Prize!
This Mana Prize is randomized for each event. If you login while she is hidden, you will receive a message with the hint & time/claims left.
When the event is over, the fairy queen returns to her spot at Spawn. You can talk to her to see your total claims & mana earned from this event!
LAST PLAYER STANDING EVENT
3 times a day (may change) there will be a Last Player Standing event any amount of players can join (10 minimum required)
Simply click the announcement in chat to queue in, and you will be teleported to one of the 5 LPS maps.
A grace period of 30s starts and everybody is given the same kit.
The top 3 players earn the following prizes:
- Last Player Standing: Legendary Key + $2000
- 2nd Last Player: Ancient Key + $1000
- 3rd Last Player: $1000
All of the maps are around this size:
REVAMPED FOR PVP
We have revamped the entire map to be better suited for PvP.
➥ Most slabs removed or replaced to full blocks
➥ Stairs removed where possible
➥ Everything generally made more flat
➥ Rivers made easier to cross
➥ Lily pads replaced with stones
➥ No weird snow leveling
➥ Fixed glitching in blocks like carpets/fences
➥ Map more accessible from all angles
➥ The lake has been replaced with glass
➥ The underground cave system has been patched up
➥ Everyone now has permanent night vision for optimal lighting
➥ The void edges have been replaced with huge mountains!
➥ The mountains have barriers at the top to prevent pearling out of the map
Visit the new building at spawn to purchase your own Arena for $5000!
You are given a 99x99 void arena (with a small platform) to do whatever you'd like! Type /arena or /a to open the Arena GUI
In here you can teleport, set warps, invite team members, edit team permissions, view arena logs, deposit/withdraw from the arena material bank,
and most importantly, enter Build Mode
Entering build mode requires an empty inventory, and will place you into Creative Mode.
You can put your items into your ender chest, player vaults, or the new /arena vault while you are in build mode.
Every block requires "1 Material" to place
64 Materials = $64
250 Materials = $250
1000 Materials = $1000
5000 Materials = $5000
Purchase Materials from /shop
There are some blocks that cost more than 1 material though. These are:
Iron Blocks = 100
Gold Blocks = 200
Diamond Blocks = 300
Emerald Blocks = 500
Note Blocks = 250
Painting = 250
Piston = 200
Anvil = 1500
Ender Chest = 2500
Enchanting Table = 5000
Beacon = 10,000
When you place an item in your inventory while in build mode, it'll automatically show the material cost
Share your materials with your arena team with the Material Bank feature.
PVP & SAFEZONE WANDS
When in build mode you are given a PvP & Safezone wand
You can use these wands to select the regions of your arena that you want to be a safezone and pvp zone. Behaves like worldedit region selection
You can lock your island if you'd like from outside players. Doing this will disable PvP everywhere on the arena.
You can visit other arenas by typing /arena warps or visiting the NPC at spawn
You can also type /a warp [name]
Arenas can set a custom name, icon & description for their warp.
Keep Inventory is enabled in the arena world, however you can still earn EXP & Money as you can in the main world. Anti-boosting measures are in place.
Arenas were a feature we wanted to do in Season 10 but didn't have the software made at the time like we do now.
Some things not mentioned above ^
- We are blocking VPN/Proxies from accounts that do not have a donator rank. This is to help prevent ban evading
- Treasure Chests have been buffed, and there is now a Monthly Leaderboard Chest & Elite Chest
- Server hardware has been upgraded
See you on Saturday!
