Top 10 Worst Things About Minecraft's "Factions" Gamemodemattstat716 Well, time to start on one of the most popular gamemodes...
The Top Ten
Exactly. It's survival but with more confusing mechanics and a few ultrarich factions that have a monopoly over everything. And while raiding is fun, it's hard to find bases without flight. Honestly.
It's survival, except once you get diamonds, an impressive base, and more... you can't really build anything.
No statues or anything along those lines. - mattstat716
I like raiding other bases though. - PeeledBanana
Cool, you go find a base! But... wait. You can't unclaim their land? Oh, well too bad. Looks like they'll move the entire base away. - mattstat716
If someone /sethome's in your base, you're screwed. Time to pack up and leave. - mattstat716
I was playing factions a few days ago on some server I was told about, we just started, we got iron armor with diamond swords but then some full enchanted diamond guy jumped at me and I lost all my stuff. - PeeledBanana
Lose all your stuff, and you lose "power", meaning you can be raided. This esp. sucks if you just joined, because now you have 0 "power". - mattstat716
OH boy.. forcefield is the most hated thing, and if you die by them, you aren't geting your stuff back. Even if they're banned. You know, unless the staff are *Extremely nice*. - mattstat716
Ever since then, combat has been awful. Doesn't help that Notch Apples were trashed. - mattstat716
Now there's 1.12 -.- 1.9 PvP was bad enough and they made more versions - PeeledBanana
There are WAYY too many of these servers. - mattstat716
So many people ragequit when they're raided...
I am actually guilty of this in the past a couple times, so yes, I admit that too. - mattstat716
With so many servers out there, you'd be insane not to see at least ONE have staff cheating/giving out notch apples or other good loot to other players (aka not you) simply because they said "you have a nice skin".
OR, Someone applies, gets staff, and then abuses it.
Isn't that lovely when you've worked hard on your base? - mattstat716
They tease at you saying rude stuff like
"Lol look at that dirty dope! He doesn't even have a faction! "
"Admire me! You will never be as good as me, the almighty (insert username here). HAHA NOOB! "
And much more...
They just poison the whole server and make it very unwelcome for newcomers then they move on to another one and continuing their "ambitious plans". - MChkflaguard_Yt
If you don't go on huge factions servers where all the land is already claimed and even then, usually the mechanics are confusing. I was in several places where you needed a RANK to make a faction, the commands are goofy (Instead of just /f, do /cf, /fc, /makeafaction, /gimmemoney, etc.), and they are bugged beyond belief. You then can't claim too close to someone else's base, and anything worth raiding is too powerful for you to take. Some servers have even weirder mechanics, like needing a certain amount of money to start a faction, 100$ for each chunk you claim, etc. And once you've mastered those, you get to sit around and do nothing except maybe build or farm stuff. Boring.
100 % of the factions is wasting time trying to kill players.
