    Welcome to the Brutal Network Season Information announcement!



    Season Release

    Friday 20th April @ 9PM GMT // 5PM EST

    There will be a KeyAll 1 hour after release!

    The map will last 5 weeks and will end on May 19th.





    This post will contain all the information you are going to need for this season. I have separated changes and features into sections of "importance".

    We have a TON of changes for this season, and so i strongly recommend you read as much of this thread as you can, although i am aware of how long it is.

    Since there is a lot of new features this season, we are expecting some bugs. Please, if you find anything, let a member of staff know or post on the forums/discord, so that we can fix them asap.

    Donators: For server performance and permissions reliability, we have moved to a new permissions database and plugin, and there may be some issues with visible [Rank] prefixes. You will still have all your permissions, but your rank may not show in chat. If you find this happening to you, please let a member of staff know privately via /msg and we will correct it asap. This was a step we had to take at some point, and i decided sooner rather than later.

    - Click to claim: You can now claim chunks in factions map simply by clicking on the chunk you wish to claim! Much easier to claim the correct chunks you want!

    - Larger map: Map is now the full size of chat, making it much easier to use.

    - Faction Vaults can be acquired using the /f getvault command for a configurable price.
