AgesPVP is officially open to Alpha testing!
To connect, get a 1.8.x client and connect to AgesPVP.com
AgesPVP is a 1.8.x (1.8.9 recommended) Factions server with custom enchants and mechanics. Currently We have about 85% of the vision of AgesPVP realized. We're missing a couple of bits, and need to refine the kits.
During the Alpha phase, you can buy ranks with in-game money; these are located on the wall by the shop. Please test out this mechanic as it is critical to our store.
The general progression in this server is a mix of grind, build and luck. There are two primary currencies - Money and XP. Money lets you buy physical things, such as ingots, blocks and monster spawners. XP lets you buy custom enchant books. These books give you a chance for a enchant within 5 categories. These enchants also have a chance of working or not. Your goal is to get high chance books and apply them to your armor and weapons. If you get a crappy enchant, you can take it to the tinkerer and he'll give you some magical dust that has a chance of increasing the successful rate on a book.
Because this is a factions server to raid you must learn how to TNT cannon; and learn how to protect your base from them.
AgesPVP is going to be ran differently than the current JAC servers; First off it is a PG server. This means that your actions, faction names, nicknames must remain in check. Normal banter and tomfollery IS fine; however cursing etc is not. We do have a chat filter and bypassing it will result in mutes etc.
Ranks will work differently - Because this is a vanilla server, we must follow the Mojang EULA as it relates to purchases. These are NOT donations. If you want to donate, please do it on the JAC donation page. The Store will be done though buycraft; not the main JAC site - as it will be 100% automated.
We're still working on the 100% official rules, so the current /rules are a copy of the Idreams+my old server rules from about 3 years ago. We do want to hear input from you; so please put it in the Proper Forums, if you try and give a suggestion directly to staff you'll be told to put it here.
If you want to be staff on AgesPVP, please apply in the forums (I'll be setting the link up today) If you where staff on ANY of the servers I was staff on - Lapitos/Idreams about 3 years ago or Sanctuary's Cove - please let me know. Unfortunately due to my work (IT) I don't remember everyone's names; so don't be offended if I don't remember you. In order to be staff you MUST be active on TS, and in-game. The alpha will be a good time to demonstrate this to me.
The JAC/Ages connection:
I've talked about this before, but I want to make sure it's out there - AgesPVP is a joint effort between JAC Gaming and Myself. After some discussions about three months ago, I started working on this to help build up to the minecraft side of JAC. A couple of bits of info - we're sharing website and TS. The game servers are NOT hosted on JAC resources (mainly to keep performance up for everyone), and the domain and concept are owned by me.
Operations wise for the most part normal JAC command structure applies; Server Manager (me) -> Sr Admin -> JR Admin -> Mod -> Chatmod; Any complaints/problems shall be filed in the appropriate section of the forums; If you have an issue with me as a manager, please try and discuss it with me first, and we'll try and sort though it if you want.
We're still working on cementing how this whole thing will fit together so things may change.
