    Greetings Desterians!

    Enough waiting. The time has come. It’s with an abundance of excitement that we’re able to announce Auren will be resetting! For this reset we’ve listened to the community, and we will not be jam-packing it full of lightly tested content. Instead, our focus is on a smooth release day with respect to server performance. Once we’ve confirmed the vanilla state of the realm is functioning well, we’ll begin releasing the scheduled content we have in store for you throughout subsequent weekly releases that will keep the realm feeling new and lively throughout its entire playthrough. Keep your eyes open for teasers!

    The thinking is that by releasing as little new software as possible alongside a fresh world, we minimize the potential for performance issues on release. The only major changes will be switching out the world files for a pre-loaded fresh map. In the following weeks, to keep things interesting, we’ll start releasing all of the good stuff we have planned for you. For more information on what we have planned, read on!

    Reset details will be posted below:


    Saturday, June 30th, 2018
    19:00 BST / 14:00 EST / 13:00 CST / 12:00 MT / 11:00 PST



    Auren Realm:
    “Behind the sprawling trees, countless adventures await those who dare enter.”

    • Desteria Classes - a uniquely designed class system
    • Non-combat mcMMO - no combat skills will be enabled on this realm
    • Lava Flow Enabled - original style factions and wall genning
    • Explodable Lava - regeneration walls are disabled here
    Map Details:
    World Size: 30,000 x 30,000 blocks
    World Radius: 15,000 blocks

    What you will lose:

    • In-game money
    • mcMMO levels
    • Inventory Items
    • Enderchest Items
    • Vault Items
    • Homes
    • Bases & Land
    • Faction data
    What you will keep:
    • Donator Ranks
    • Special Kits
    • Titles
    • Purchased add-ons (such as Faction Fly)

    Economy Changes
    Auren will be adopting Caden’s new economy for this reset, which also means we’ll be removing the Emporium shop. We like how these changes have performed on Caden, so we’ve elected to transplant them here as well.


    F-Top Contest Rule
    We’ve now officially announced the Auren map reset, so as of this moment factions are no longer allowed to split or merge on Auren. If you still choose to split or merge with another faction and are found out, you will automatically be disqualifying yourself from any F-Top Rewards. If anyone has proof that a faction has done this, feel free to reach out to an Admin+ and we will look into it. As a final note, we will be taking the final F-Top screenshot for this map of Auren anywhere within the last 24 hours of the map, so now is your chance to reach for number one! Place those spawners!


    Faction Top Reward Changes
    For this map reset we’ll be changing up how we distribute Faction Rewards! Instead of one large sum of money for the winner at the end of the map we’ll be splitting it up into several rewards over the lifetime of the map. This should increase competition throughout the entirety of the map rather than allow the winning faction to be the only people left competing after the first week or two. This way, multiple factions can win over the course of the map, and competition will stay fresh! Don’t worry though, the sum rewards haven’t changed. If you can hold the #1 spot throughout the entirety of the map - the only thing that’ll be changing is that you’ll get more money faster!

    NOTE: We’ll update the F-Top contest rule sometime in the coming days in the rules page itself to make more clear that for future resets you will not be allowed to split or merge factions before ANY of the F-Top payouts, not just the EOTW.

    Monthly Rewards: #1, #2, & #3

    • First Place
      • $100 Store Gift Card
    • Second Place
      • $50 Store Gift Card
    • Third Place
      • $20 Store Gift Card
    EOTW Reward:
    • First Place
      • $200 Store Gift Card
    • Second Place
      • $100 Store Gift Card
    • Third Place
      • $40 Store Gift Card

    New Temporary Rank Released!
    As we mentioned around a month ago, we’ve been working on a new temporary donator rank. This rank will be above Titan, last 30 days when purchased, and give quite the competitive advantage to those that choose to purchase it. As noted above, the rank is temporary, but you’ll be able to stack instances of the rank on top of each other. This means if you buy the rank twice, you’ll keep the overpowered rewards that come with it for two months instead of one!

    More information about this rank will be released alongside the new map of Auren itself, but for now, get hyped! This is something you won’t want to start the map without.



    Insiding Rule Revisited
    We know it’s been awhile, but we’ve been working behind the scenes to make sure that this time around we get this correct. As of the Auren map’s release the rules will again be updated to include the insiding rule across all realms once. To go along with this new rule, we’ve added some additional features to /f perms that will take effect on the reset.
    • We added a ‘SPAWNERS’ permission node into /f perms. This change will deny faction members without this permission the ability to break spawners OR place creeper eggs & TnT within a certain radius of spawners.
    • Co-Leaders are now able to access /f perms.
    • We removed the redundant permission nodes from /f perms that could’ve caused issues.
    • When you kick someone from your faction they’ll now be sent to spawn, even if they’re offline.
    This additional freedom with /f perms should open up a larger amount of trust between faction leaders and their members while simultaneously allowing faction leaders to customize the permissions associated with each rank. Hopefully in conjunction with the reimplementation of our rule against insiding, it should disappear from our network in the coming weeks. More information on the specifics of the changes we’ll be making will come with the map-release-announcement on the 30th.


    “And More!”
    First, as mentioned in our changelog, one of our developers may have found a fix for the ongoing 1.7.10 compatibility issues that we’ve observed in the past weeks. We haven’t deployed our fix just yet, but we’re continuing to work with it and will monitor this issue over the next few days to see if it’s working and will let you guys know in the next changelog if we were successful.

    Speaking of our changelog, it was posted today here, so please check that out.

    Next - our July Crate is already set up and ready to go for the store, so you can expect that to be live on the 1st for purchase on the Desteria webstore!

    And finally, last but certainly not least… Besen. We certainly haven’t forgot about you. Stay posted for more information on your reset - coming soon! Otherwise, keep checking back here on the homepage of the Forums over the next few weeks as we’ll be lighting it up with posts and new content.


    More is coming soon, GET HYPED.

    Best regards,

    Well, there will most likely still be insiding, but it'll be a lot harder if people set up their permissions correctly - and those few cases that get through can get handled by our wonderful Moderators.

    That is correct. Caden will still follow the old model for the rest of it's time until it resets at a later date.
