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)
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
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
