    A new area has been added to the spawn, The Pit.

    The Pit will be split into two sections: the surface level and the depths.

    The surface level will offer only PvE threats, including ordinary mobs and easy to medium difficulty bosses.
    The depths offer a more hardcore experience; PvP and PvE, with the most difficult bosses.

    These bosses will drop a range of rewards, from points, to money, to a new currency, "Boss Souls", which can be traded in for keys, including the old keys no longer available on the shop, as well as other exclusive items.

    To access it, The Pit must be open, and can be opened for anywhere from 1 to 48 hours at a time by purchasing an access pass on the store. This pass opens the pit to everyone.

    More information will be released about The Pit as we approach the launch, which should be within the next couple weeks.

      Opens it for everyone, and it actually gives people a reason to support the server.

      Genuine question, would you prefer that something like this be completely free - but we still sold the pvp gear in crates that you also complained about?

      Small question: when you buy the acces pass on the store, will the pit be opened imidiatly or will you receive an in-game item (like with drug price booster) so you can activate it whenever you want?
      + I am also really excited!!! #pithype
      Grow, sell and excel!

      Actually really like the idea, but how much will these passes be or will it be different prices for different times etc..

      Factions is pay to win, if you can't afford it don't play factions. Great idea Dakota!

      This is not pay to win in any way, though.

      Nah fam it's really not I mean you pay to get the chance to win, you still gotta grind and shit to get the loot from the mobs, other players, and bosses. Kinda like last map(idk about this map) with the arena but with PVP involved with other players. It's a great idea for you as owners to get support for your server, while still giving us something to do instead of just harvesting drugs 24/7.

      This is fundamentally the same as a drug booster - you buy a voucher, redeem it, and everyone has a chance to reep the reward. They literally just revamped the entire store to make it less pay-2-win, and now when they add something to the store y'all screen pay-2-win. The community have asked for more pvp for a long time, and this definitly adds that.

      I would say that the problem I have, at least, is that I think if you're trying to grow your server, this is not the part of it to monetize. Obviously, you can do whatever you want on your server, but I think it'd probably be better to market off crates or ranks than the pvp aspect of the server.

      also: sky and i usually dont dislike crates, we just dislike items such as the pool noodle which literally makes it impossible to kill someone unless they're in a box with you or they want to fight to the death

      Better to sell pay to win items that give people who have real money to spend on them a clear advantage than to allow players to donate to essentially host a PvP event, good logic.

      If you really care about the server being even for everyone regardless of pay, that's fine, but I'm simply saying I think you stand to gain more if you monetize gear rather than the pvp the gear is used for. Pvp incentivizes gear, not the other way around. Additionally, I don't know about other people, but at least I personally would prefer to have the pit be free and have better gear be paid for than have better gear be free and pvp be paid for.

      Then you're an idiot.

      It's utterly infuriating that Dakota and I took such a giant risk and sacrificed a massive amount of stability to make the server fair and more balanced for everyone to enjoy, regardless of their position to donate, the fact that you aren't able to recognise that is very telling.

      I am honestly baffled at the responses about this announcement. I understand that you guys complaining are the very vocal minority, but regardless, it's insulting that you guys think this.

      I'm not critiquing the idea of the pit, I'm just saying I think you stand to gain more if you monetize the gear rather than the pit.

      Also, you'll be able to redeem the boss rewards for gear, this is just a more fair way to do it than having crates.
