    Two posts in one day? What is this madness!?

    This post is to let you all know of a change you can expect to see in all Skybounds warzones starting this Friday. Warzones will soon be divided into two different modes, dubbed Singlecombat and Multicombat zones.

    Multicombat
    Multicombat Zones are the current warzone fights you're used to. Nothing changes. Areas with a high chest /ore density will be multicombat zones.

    Singlecombat
    This is the new one. Single Combat zones prevent team fighting. When you engage in combat with a player, only you can attack them, and only they can attack you. Fighting other players is disabled, as well as them fighting you.

    This change is our attempt at reducing the amount of giant teams that saturate the warzones and make exploring the warzone a more fair and enjoyable experience.

    All islands in the warzone will default to the new Singlecombat mode, while select islands will be Multicombat. You'll receive a notification when you enter an island that's a different mode, and your sidebar will also reflect the mode of where you currently are.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    You are freely able to travel between modes while in combat, but as always, you are not able to return to the safety of spawn or an outpost while fighting someone.

    This change, as well as many others, are rolling out with this Friday's REBALANCE UPDATE. Can't wait for you to see them all. :)

    Truth be told i think this is kind of stupid people always just got mad because nobody would team with them and all ur doing is giving in to the cry babies pretty much that complain when they get ganked by multiple people its simple either hide or go around and avoid those teams its not that hard i did it for the longest of time and i could understand that people had alliances and that i didnt. u need to realize also that this plugin has had many fall back mistakes and many things can go wrong with it i watched a server fall because they put in a plugin that did this such thing u will only mess up things take my advice or not as a fellow developer on another server it will have fallback problems and im not saying this because i have a team im saying this because u have certain people who try to find every little problem in the server and dont report it back when they find a bug for example the perm str bonus look how long it took for staff to find out. People will look for bugs imminently

    Question, What if say someone goes into the warzone with a teamate, in to the single arena, then one of them starts fighting you fair and square, But you start winning the fight, so they run, get out of combat, and quickly punch there teamate so you cant attack either of them anymore. Will this be punishable or anything?

    I am excited for this update, but I also can see how this will kill the warzone for a lot of people. I'm sure if they find its harming the server more than helping they will change it back... worth testing though imo.

    Staff will automatically receive notifications of possibilities of this. It will be a bannable offense starting Friday. (Similar to evading combat tags.)

    Sadly you're a minority. There are many players that simply do not use the warzone because they can't stand being teamed on. Including many content creators.

    Skybounds has changed forever thanks to your guys' hard work. This will definitely rebalance the warzone!

    Question, if u have a team just waiting outside of the single pvp area and then run into the multi does that mean that they can then gank the person?
