Hi there,

In the previous announcement we gave information about HCF EOTW and the new SOTW.
We did the EOTW today at 4 PM CEST, which went pretty decent.
We worked on HCF later, but we just lacked time to complete everything.
It also wasn't a smart idea to do a SOTW on a Wednesday, especially since school started.
We also felt like there wasn't even hype for this one, and apparently not everyone knew about it.

We take full responsibility and are very sorry to everyone who was hyped for this one.

''But when will SOTW be?!''
We will come out with a release date when we're actually server that there's enough hype for it.
In this time we're going to continue working on HCF to make sure its optimized and able to be as its peak performance when we're actually launching.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused and we will make sure this won't happen again.

Dear ColdNetwork,

I'm gonna keep this thread a bit short and not that well organized as other bigger threads.

GiveAway results:
The winners of the giveaway are as following:
1st (50):
TylerDaBoss

2nd: (25):
3yr

3rd (10) 2x:
StaffMasz
Panqu

This is valued credits for the store, these may not be applied with a discount, aka with the money you get from 3rd place you could buy a silver rank, just the full price. Otherwise this would not be that fair to real donators.
Make a ticket on forums with what you want from this.

You can believe me or not but I can't record rn, when I'm home for the next giveaway I'll record the full giveaway process!

INFO What now?
Dear ColdNetwork,

I just want to let you all know I'm really grateful on how cold is doing, it seems to be running really well and I hope you guys still enjoy it. I'm really looking forward to add some new gamemodes to fresh it all up but more info on that later.

I'll be talking to you all about a few things on what is going on with cold:
The past week
Vacation
Factions
Cold 2.0?

The past week:

I know there was a little bit of chaos regarding gamemodes, but I think in terms of lag every thing should be stable now. (KitMap & HCF lag is 100% fixed right now), practice should be way more stable aswell.

Vacation:
I kinda did this unannounced but I'm actually in Greece right now, where the area is super pretty but the resort is dog shit. I did this unannounced as I'm kinda afraid some people would maybe target us while I'm gone or something like that but I just realised that's kinda dumb anyways, I made backups of everything and I have my laptop with me.
I'll be home at tuesday probably a bit late.

Factions:
This release was kind of messy, it was badly announced and kinda hectic due to the vacation we believe therefore there was no attention for it 2 days ago, we'll be releasing saturday the 1st of september, this release will be tested and there will probably be a trailer. Check out mahdi's thread for more information about Factions. This release will be smooth! We've redone everything about it.

ColdNetwork 2.0:
There might be some rumors spread about a 2.0, well we're really thinking about doing this. We have no idea yet how because if we would revamp all gamemodes at once I feel like that won't really benefit cold but maybe like a ColdNetwork 2.0 month or something like that would really be cool.
This way we could really well add some new gamemodes to draw people's attention.
Greetings,

As you all may know faction is replacing OP-Faction for a more simple and fun platform. We will be doing many rule changes on Factions. I will post a thread explaining the rules soon.

The features so far are:
-Water placeable in nether so you can make bases there.
-Minimal custom enchants (Custom enchants that do not effect combat way too much but just slightly)
-Slightly reduced world borders
-Better gen bucket (horizontal and vertical)
-New factions plugin with many cool features.
-Faction fly
-A cannon jar which means raiding is a thing. Raiding and claiming and base defensive will also have their own rules.
-Revamped buycraft store and cheaper things.
-Revamped gkits
-Way easier economy.
-Koths
-New end and nether and trench pickaxes
-Wands (lighting Wands sell Wands harvester Wands etc)
-Better way to calculate f top.
-Revamped crates
And much more bug fixes where hopefully we will not face bugs on release.

Hope to see you competing there and thanks for reading!.

Mahdi.

Dear Penguins,

Bans as of today have been reset. Through discussion the staff team have decided to give everyone a second chance.
As a result of the HCF Release on the 11th of August , we would like to give many people the opportunity to play on the HCF gamemode and we think that more players would make it an enjoyable experience. As well as the constant Kitmap resets which in turn have had excellent feedback, and further releases of both OPSkyblock and Factions.

Spread the word about the ban reset ! , we'd like to see everyone who was previously banned , reformed and back on the network.
IMPORTANT KitMap, Take 2
Dear Cold-Network community,

We've decided to reset kitmap because people are getting bad fps, and just to spice it up a bit.

We've added level tags, the level rewards and their tags can be found at the bottom

Things that changed:
- Huge change:
Faction payouts will still be a thing, the coupons stay but we changed the system. As people keep transferring money, merging etc etc we made it so it counts kills made when ur in the faction.
This means that if you get 50 kills without a faction, you join a faction this will NOT add up to the 'Faction Kills'. Faction Kills can ONLY be obtained while killing people WHILE in the faction.
There will still be weekly payouts with these prizes:
1st: 40 euro coupon
2nd: 20 euro coupon
3rd: 10 euro coupon
- We added koth starters over the crates
- Changed killstreak and levels
- Made an FPS friendly map
- Different world which should also be more FPS friendly
- Added an actual KoTH schedule:
Cave KoTH 12PM (NOT NIGHT TIME)
End KoTH 2PM
Shrine KoTH 4PM
Farm KoTH 6PM
SkyCastle KoTH 8PM
Balloons KoTH 10PM
These are Dutch times, the CEST time zone!
Right now THE EST Time zone is 7 hours before these times!
- Changed some faction message
- Made /f invite message clickable to join
- Redid donator perms, they're updated on the store when kitmap releases.
- REMOVED ULTIMATE RANK due to lack of perms and other reasons.

Levels:
Level 5: [Warrior] Tag + 5 Golden Apples
Level 10: [Samurai] Tag + 8 Min Fire Resistance Potion
Level 25: [Ninja] Tag + 1 God apple
Level 50: [Sensei] Tag + 1 Premium Key
Level 75: [King] Tag + 1 OP Key
Level 100: [Emperor] Tag + /rename command
(1 Level is 10 kills)

Killstreaks:
3 Killstreak: 3 Golden Apple
5 Killstreak: Double Debuff (1min slow, 30 sec poison)
10 Killstreak: 2:15 Splash Invis pot
20 Killstreak: 1 Min Strength 2
30 Killstreak: 1 God Apple
50 Killstreak: Sharpness 2, Unbreaking 3, Fire Aspect 1
60 Killstreak: 3 Premium Keys
75 Killstreak: 1 OP Keys
100...
Dear ColdNetwork,

After some harsh times with the bots, we found ourselves with some kitmap problems which I hope are fixed now, just make sure to put your render distance on 4. I'll be giving some info about the following topics, I'll keep it short don't worry.

Topics:
- Staff-Team Future
- KitMap
- OPFactions > Factions
- Prison
- OPSkyBlock
- HCFactions release

Staff-Team Future:

Unfortunately we lost our final manager BAUM, which is a decision that was hard for him but possibly the best for him, BAUM was here since the release when we had our OPFactions and OPSkyBlock servers only. Which was in our opinion the most fun time but due to lack of updates and obviously the release of our more pvp based servers which got more attention they were kinda lost. BAUM just didn't really feel the practice community, he liked it way more with the SkyBlock community which I totally understand this is partly the reason why he's letting go off cold. Also another reason baum left is that I didn't have any jobs for the managers which I really am sorry for but I just couldn't think of anything specific for them, which you guys could totally blame me for not doing their job bcs it was my fault. BAUM also got a busy irl job which I wish him the best of luck with and this was also one of the main reasons BAUM left
What happened to Asodey was just some abuses on KitMap which got him demoted, obviously I still like Asodey and he had his reasons for doing what he did. He was a good staff and always helpful, I also wish him the best of luck with his future.

Thank you both @BAUM_xD @Asodey for your service :)
About our manager spot, as @Mahdi717 is really doing an amazing job, he can take over the management position without any issues. Whether we need a new staff-manager is still unknown, we'll look how mahdi handles both of these jobs. Just please, don't pm me for any...
