I have been constantly requested to revert factions from 1.12 to 1.8 for the pvp aspect. So this post will have the whole thing laid out so you can vote on if this happens, as there will be quite a few drawbacks to the change.
Drawbacks of the revert:
- New map (possibly more stuff will get reset along with this, like inventories and player stats)
- A few days (maybe up to a week) Factions will be down for me to change everything to 1.8, and possibly further few days of me testing before allowing it to be public again.
- Some features will not exist (at this point I could estimate at least 45% of features will be no longer supported)
- Nothing new will be added to factions until I feel its stable enough for the new features (which could take weeks after the release)
