So, just yesterday (or earlier today?) I made an announcement on Discord telling people that Factions would be removed in a week if it wasn't played. So far, I've had 0 people asking to keep it and several people asking for its removal - so that's what's happening today. After talking with @Windwhistle a bit last night, I came to the realization that having as many modes as we do may in a sense actually cause more issues. His suggestion was to remove every single gamemode except for Survival - something I am not willing to go through with (unless you guys want it), and while I find that to be very extreme, we are going to dial back our focus on minigames and whatnot and instead focus on the things that made CU great to begin with, primarily survival. Starting today, 2 modes are being removed from the server: Factions and The Arena. Let's go into more detail as to why. The biggest common reason is just that nobody touches it. If I go into any of the other 3 main gamemodes, it's clear that they are all played. From creative spawn, you can go outside and see tons of creations all over the place. Survival, too, has plenty of builds attached to the spawn itself, and more as you go further out. SkyBlock, you can see several islands from the spawn area. But when I go into the factions world, the only clear change from when it was created was a small wooden wall right on the edge of spawn: Additionally, there were only 2 factions that existed that had any members at all. The Arena also had this issue, plus the added bonus of being either outright broken.The original plan was to get a custom plugin to replace the pile of garbage one we had before, but that never happened. We hope to one day revisit the idea when we have more resources to work with (and maybe a paid dev or two), but for now it was just creating clutter. Now as a reminder, Factions can be readded - exactly as they were - if there is demand. It would take nothing more than a couple small config edits and a quick server restart to bring them both back. But, if the demand isn't there, they won't be returning. Now, for those of you with a craving for PvP, we have introduced a feature that some old CU folk should remember: /pvp. In either Survival or Skyblock, you can now do /pvp to enable or disable PVP. If you and another player want to PvP, you both just need to enable PvP. Below, you can read the full changelog for this server update (it's not that long). Be sure to give us your thoughts and feelings on these changes with a reply to the topic!
Hey everybody. The time has come. Chaotic United has relaunched! Let's go over some of the big changes! No? Well, for those of you who have no interest in reading the post, check the info directly below. Below that is the actual post. MC.CHAOTICUNITED.NET 1.12.x Backwards compatiability still works, so you can still play on anything from 1.4.7 to 1.12.2, though it is NOT recommended. NEW GAMEMODES We have introduced MobArena! After being on the request list for a good while, we finally managed to introduce MobArena. To start off, we have 3 maps and we plan to expand and add more as time goes on. The first map is called Heat, a nether-themed map built by myself along with some help from @*-=(Jayden)=-*. The second map is called Ruin, which is a map built off the first CU revival survival spawn (2014) made by @AimWicked. The third map is a modified version of the survival spawn area from CU back in Beta 1.7.3 (2011, not our current beta 1.7.3 server). Additionally, we have introduced The Arena - a PvP-focused gamemode. Like MobArena, we have 3 maps to start with and we will be introducing more maps as time goes on. The first map is called Beaver Creek, which if you couldn't tell, is a map from Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2 remade in Minecraft. It was built outside of CU and the original map can be found here. The second map is called Tomb, which is a map from MCUniverse that was formerly only referred to as Quake. It is a small map and is designed for close-quarters encounters. The third map is called Labrynth, which is derived from an old thing that @alycat built a long time ago, but better spaced out and better adapted for arena gameplay. The Arena is not complete. We plan to expand upon this mode as time goes on. We plan to introduce SurvivalGames, SkyWars, and other lesser-known modes, some of which will be exclusive to CU. PARKOUR UPDATES Our parkour plugin, NDParkour, has recieved some updates as well as having new maps added. The plugin itself now stores each player's checkpoints and remembers them, and will reject unlocking the same checkpoint twice. This was particularly an issue on larger, vertical maps that just went up and up. If you were to fall down and land on an older checkpoint, you were suddenly set back a huge margin. That will no longer happen anymore. Additionally, there is now an Easy, Normal, and Hard mode. Normal mode is how the plugin has operated in the past. Easy mode operates by allowing you to set a checkpoint at any location, but cuts your award down to 25% (1/4 or 0.25x, however you want to format it). Hard mode gives you 10x the award you normally would, but disables checkpoints entirely. In addition to the various changes that have been made to the plugin, we have a few new maps. You guessed it, 3 new maps. The first one is Oasis, a parkour map set within a mountain wall with a shallow pond of water. It was built by myself with the actual parkour layout being made by @*-=(Jayden)=-*. The second one is called Sandstorm, which is set within a desert. Once again, the main parkour layout was built by @*-=(Jayden)=-* with the map styled and prettified by me. The third map is a simpler map, called EndParkour, which has an End-style theme. It has a strange uniformity to it.You guessed it. @*-=(Jayden)=-* made the core map, with the map prettified by me. Additionally, an older map now known as MagmaParkour has finally been expanded upon. Instead of 3 short layers, the original vision for the course has been realized and it is a crazy tall course. It's also worth a fair chunk of cash, so keep that in mind too. WEBSITE UPDATES Our website has recieved a facelift. We wanted to keep it still fairly similar to the previous website and keep it familiar, but at the same time bring a noticeable facelift. You will notice some new animations as well as some updated page designs. The timeline page looks a lot better than ever before, and most of the website now works better on mobile. Mobile navigation is now a separate menu instead of an awkward emulation of the main navigation menu. The helpcenter index looks much better and now has individual icons for each page. Additionally, the icons are more obviously links. FORUMS UPDATES We have added some new features to the public on our forums. We are introducing Blogs for public use! As a regular user, you are able to create blogs and add entries to them as you desire. In the past we have been using Blogs internally for our update changelog. Now, you can manage your own, too! Additionally, we are now launching our Download center! Our vision for the download center is to foster an environment for content creators, inside and outside of Minecraft, to share their content and, eventually, be able to monetize them if desired. We are still working out the kinks in this system, and we will make an announcement later when we have more definite figures on it. THE FUTURE This update is not the final stage of the server. Now that we've finally launched, we will be working to test things better with you guys and expanding the content further, and here soon we will start our advertising campaign. All of us have been working pretty hard (the admins especially) and so we will be taking a little bit of a rest break in between now and then. We've worked very hard to help create a truly awesome experience, and to finally begin to push to a new frontier in the future of Chaotic United. Lastly, for those of you who submitted survey results thus far, you will be sent your crate key codes via Discord, or if that fails, via forums. We will be posting survey results soon! That's all for now folks. We want to thank all of you for sticking with us this far, and we hope you can stick with us going forward into the future.

So I'm the leader of my faction and I can't do a bunch of stuff, the first thing was trying to ally other factions (which was fixed) but now I've discovered I cannot unclaim land from my faction. This leads me to believe that the permissions in factions are just not set for regular players or something like that if this could be looked into that would be nice
