Factions is one of the game modes of Minecraft Central. It was added 6th July 2014. The idea of Factions is to have a faction that is powerful and loyal at the same time. There have been 7 resets to Factions, first one on the 21st of December 2014, the second one on the 30th of May 2015, the third on the 25th of January 2016, the fourth on the 2nd of September 2016 and the fifth on the 9th of February 2017. The sixth reset happened on the 21st of June 2017. Factions reset for the 7th time on the 17th of November 2017. There are two Factions servers, 1 of which was added on the 3rd of March 2015.
The goal is to either create or join a faction and build a base that other players can't raid. Factions have power and claims which need to be in balance. Factions is a very PvP-based game mode and many things that normally aren't allowed, such as death-trapping and scamming are allowed.
There is a trading room, enchanting station, tutorial room and Overworld, the Nether and the End worlds.
On Factions 4.0 some new Factions perks that can be purchased from the web store were added on the 31st of January 2016. These included 15 Set homes, No Fall Damage, TNT Fill Command, Kit Cannon, Kit Potions and stacking potions. The stacking potions ability was removed on the 3rd of February 2016.
The item selector for Factions is a TNT block. The NPC in Lobbies is a knight who is holding a TNT block. No data is linked between the two Factions servers.
