Hey everyone!
Don't panic - things have changed.
We've been trying to make the server more global for a while now, and have FINALLY been able to do that with the merging of factions and global ranks. Detailed below is how exactly it works:
  • If you donated on either factions or globally, you now have a GLOBAL rank on both
  • If you donated to both, you will get whichever one is worth more, and can request a voucher for the other one HERE. If your faction rank was more than $200, you will be given special perks soon, and will receive a ton of bolts. This is *coming very soon*.
  • Factions section on the store is completely gone, global ranks will be changing content in the next few weeks to comply with the EULA.

The new permissions system has only been rolled out to the HUB and FACTIONS as of now. It will be rolled out to all other servers shortly, likely with prison being the last to get this upgrade due to its complete rewrite.

Factions is reset, sexy new spawn, awesome kits, and is now OP again. You will no longer be able to buy kits, but they are grandfathered in for those who have already bought them.

As all permissions were changed on the hub/factions, let us know if something broke, it may have happened. Paw and I have been up way too long preparing this for you, and we hope you will enjoy it and all the changes coming in the future.


Hawkfalcon and FlamingPaw.

PS: We found a way to automatically give back MCMMO, so we'll be running that soon. This is likely the last time :(

Risk + Deadlife : 06/02/2014 12:37:30 am6/02/14

Hey everyone!

Today, I have some great news :D

Our protection went live today, so hopefully we will have less downtime ;)
Also, as an unintended side effect to this, wildcard ips now work, so you can connect to the server with anything, such as ilovepie.snw.io.

The risk server has finally been updated! Due to some issues with the developers health, this was not updated when we upgraded to 1.7.9, and as such has been down. It is finally back, with some small tweaks! NPCs are gone per popular request. We've moved risk to our own servers, so it should be less laggy than it was before. Note: risk uses a custom version of craftbukkit, and as such you MUST be running 1.7.5+ to play. 

Deadlife has been neglected, and we decided it was time to dust it off and put it back up, after being down for quite a while. Thanks to [USER=7413]@Shauna_Jade[/USER] and [USER=6716]@Pblolpb[/USER], the maps have been tweaked to be much nicer and less glitchy. The other notable change is players are now in adventure mode, which means no more block glitching!

Hope you enjoy having these servers back! HUGE things coming very soon, I'm very excited for the future. Thanks for everyone's patience in getting these servers back up!

hawkfalcon & the ShockNetwork staff.

Invasion updates : 03/17/2014 3:03:30 pm3/17/14

Hey Everyone!

Its been a looooong time in the making, but I've finally rolled out a new update to Invasion. Hopefully it will fix some of the more annoying things.

New Things
  • Map voting
    • Choose from three random maps (you won't get a previously played map)
    • CLICK CHAT to vote
    • Scoreboard to show voting


Factions : 01/31/2014 7:40:51 pm1/31/14

The factions server hasn't received much loving today so we went through and made some changes and fixes including but not limited to:
  • Vote rewards updated.
  • Mobarena updated.
  • ObsidianDestroyer updated.
  • PlayerVaults updated.
  • Added bounties with decapitation.
  • Made kit iron -> kit diamond.
  • Added more kits for donors!
  • Updated kit pvp with more god apples and no thorns.
  • Fixed a few res areas.


Invasion 2.0 : 01/24/2014 5:56:34 pm1/24/14

I am extremely pleased to announce the release of Invasion 2.0, a completely remade invasion. Hopefully you guys like it even more than version one. The previous version had many bugs and was limited to 16 players, whereas this one allows for multiple games at once!


New server on the network : 01/13/2014 1:54:36 pm1/13/14

After many months of work, Survival has been released!

Connect with snw.io then type /server survival

Factions reset. : 12/01/2013 4:52:58 pm12/01/13

Factions has been reset.

1.7.2 : 11/25/2013 3:14:12 pm11/25/13

Updated to a 1.7.2 protocol hack, so 1.7.2 clients can connect.

Introducing King of the Hill - HARDMODE : 10/17/2013 1:39:47 am10/17/13

Welcome, Heroes of ShockNetwork.

The hill has been overrun - taken by the horde. We need to fight back, we need to own that hill - We need our server back.

Fighting on the field is not good enough for you? Killing the other clans is no longer fun? Then join us on the front lines. We need your help.


YouTube : 10/10/2013 10:02:45 pm10/10/13

We now have an official YouTube channel @http://youtube.com/user/snwmc

We will be posting server updates and other fun things there. People will also be able to submit videos to be posted on the channel for anything related to the server.

Subscribe to the channel then post your youtube name on this thread to get 100 free bolts


Magic Furnaces : 10/10/2013 10:02:13 pm10/10/13

I wrote a plugin today called MagicFurnaces. It allows you to smelt diamonds and with that, send fake stone blocks to anyone that's looking. Put this in your base to prevent xrayers from finding your base. Anyone looking will just see a bunch of stone and nothing else!

Plugin source is closed and private. I will not release it at this time.

Only hero has permission to do this. After I figure out how to not make it lag so much I will allow more donor groups to use it


Game Inventory Shop : 10/10/2013 10:01:43 pm10/10/13

Thanks to @turt2liveyou can now purchase things with your Bolts!

Right now this is only implemented in the King of the Hill game. You type /koth or /shop while you are within a few blocks of your team's spawn and that opens up a nice inventory gui that you can click things to purchase them.


Grand Opening of the Network : 10/05/2013 4:27:26 am10/05/13

o  IMGo

I am overwhelmingly pleased to finally announce to you guys the opening of our network! Over the past month or so we have been working furiously on putting together a network. This is a pretty long post detailing all the new things so bear with me :3

New Things
  • Multiple games for people to play.
  • A way to connect to factions, survival and any other non game servers.
  • Bolts (explained below).
  • A unique way to join servers.
  • A fun and interactive hub.
  • Completely custom plugins made by our awesome dev team.
  • Factions reset with new shopping mall and improved donor perks.
  • Survival rebuild (soon to come).

How to connect
You can connect via snw.io, shocknetwork.net, shock.so, or any subdomains on those.


Pets and TNT Throw : 10/03/2013 12:56:20 am10/03/13

We now have pets and throwing TNT on factions!

TNT Throw
To throw TNT you just right click with 4 or more TNT in your hand and it takes care of the rest! Warrior and above have access to this command

Pets are awesome. You can name them, ride them, have them ride you, call them, love them, even race them! Knight is the first rank that starts to get pets.


Server Lag Issues : 10/01/2013 3:22:32 am10/01/13

So we all know that the server has been having a lot of issues with lag lately. I've been doing everything I can think of to try to fix it with little effect.

The reason for the lag is the hard drives I/O speeds. Hard disk drives just don't seem to be handling the massive resource hog that factions is too well. With the pending expansion we also need another server to put our hub and a few game servers on to start.

Because nothing else was working, I contacted OVH (our host) and told them that we need a new server. The new one (when it gets set up) will have solid state drives. The I/O performance on those compared to HDDs is ridiculously better. You may wonder why we didn't go with that option in the first place. Well, the new server that I ordered will hold factions and not have room for anything else. Now that we have other machines to put the website and other things on we will be ok.

I will keep you guys updated on the order of the new server. If it takes more than a few days it is because of OVHs issues you can read abouthere (<- Ad link removed).

Once we do get the server I will be transferring everything over. You will not lose anything. All data will be saved. The only thing that would happen is an hour or so of downtime (at like 2am so not many people would be on anyway).

Thanks to all those that continue to stick with and support us. It's what makes this community so great


Well OVH is not letting me get a new server which sucks because we needed it for more than just this. But on the bright side, I fixed the lag on saves with something else without getting a new server :3

3v3 Tournament teams. : 09/28/2013 1:59:50 am9/28/13

The teams are in! click the link below for details.


Changed donor kits. : 09/24/2013 9:49:36 pm9/24/13

The updated kits are as follows:

Legend: protection 4 thorns 1
Titan: protection 4 thorns 2
Lord: protection 4 thorns 3
King: protection 4 thorns 1 unbreaking 1
Emperor: protection 4 thorns 1 unbreaking 2
Mayor: protection 4 thorns 1 unbreaking 3
Master: protection 4 thorns 2 unbreaking 3
Commander: protection 4 thorns 3 unbreaking 3 respiration 3 feather falling 2 (boots)
Hero: protection 4 thorns 3 unbreaking 4 respiration 3 aqua affinity 1 feather falling 4 (boots)

ShockNetwork is now running 1.6.4 : 09/23/2013 2:51:14 pm9/23/13

We are now on Minecraft 1.6.4! Make sure to select the new version with your client so you can connect.

This update fixes a few bugs including a login authentication exploit and structural persistence. It is essentially an update that prepares servers / worlds for 1.7.

We are now using combat log as well. It should disable all commands in combat which will resolve a few issues.

Plugins that haven't updated that I didn't update myself:
  • MobCatcher

New AntiCheat System : 09/23/2013 2:50:49 pm9/23/13

As of this last restart we have moved over to AntiCheat instead of no cheat plus. We are working toward getting an anticheat system as well prepared as we can for the game servers that are soon to come. Since there will be multiple servers it will be difficult to have staff on catching hackers at all times. Our Hackusation forum will probably see a lot more activity but we also plan on having an effect anticheat solution that can kick and ban people without a staff member ever having to log on to the server.

We are working with @Gravity, the developer of AntiCheat, to set up a new enterprise AntiCheat system. We will be recording infractions across all servers so your "cheat" level will not go away if you just switch servers within our network. Staff will then have access to a panel that shows everyone's cheat levels and the latest infractions so they know who to keep an eye on.

The system we have right now will probably need tweaking so be sure to report any issues you encounter to us on the forums in Suggestions and Feedback so we can fix it. We do not have automatic banning in place yet and probably won't until we get the minigame servers up and running.

So bear with us and help us catch those pesky hackers :3

PvP tournament! : 09/23/2013 2:46:03 pm9/23/13

So I was going to do a 3v3 tournament where the top 3 members of factions could go against the top 3 of another faction but Minecraft session servers have been down most of the day (at least since I've been awake) so I wasn't able to set it up.

Since I wanted to do this game at a time where as many people as possible would be able to be on I am not going to hold this contest today. And since I am going to be gone all day tomorrow it will not be on Sunday either.

We will be hosting the 3v3 Faction Tournament next weekend on Saturday the 28th at noon CST. This will allow people in the UK to be on without it being an unreasonable hour.

Each player on the first place team will get $50 toward any donations they want. This is before coupons and does not get to have a coupon applied to it. Each player will also get the prefix[Champ]until the next tournament and the bragging rights that come with it.

Each player on the second place team will get $25 toward any donations they want. This is before coupons and does not get to have a coupon applied to it.

Each player on the third place team will get one kit pvp given to them after the match.

Update #1 : 09/20/2013 6:38:35 pm9/20/13

We just added another pvp arena and are working on coding our own minigames with some other friends from Bukkit :3

We should probably remove the "Skywars" and "FTB" tags, since neither of them apply any more. We do, however, have MadPack, so that could be added as well.

I ''Griefed'' the spawn, and then I try to replace what I did, then I get killed in the process and lose all my things? I thought this server was a good server. obviously not. Waste of my time. This server is terrible.
