Which are the most powerful factions?
Say from 1 to 10
I think nobody can tell which faction is the most powerfull, since there are no statistics or other public informations about factions, there isnt even a list of all factions. It also depends from what it needs to be "powerfull". Many members? wealth? The ammount bases or the ammount of raided bases?
Almost every faction will claim that it is the most powerfull one, depending from their own definition of power.
That would be adding factions though, Even with the command blocks wouldn't you think itd take away from the vanilla survival experience? We always say we have unofficial factions on the forums, so maybe set a faction statistics thread, but id feel like that would be making official factions, making us a vanilla faction server of sorts, if that is even possible
Anyway, throughout the history of the server, Apathy was the most powerful faction around April - July 2015, after apathy died down people weren't really factions anymore just friends grouping together afaik, and I honestly can't remember any real factions from that point until December, when Red Army came about.
The dissolution of that faction resulted in a trend of many newer factions. I wouldn't have called Team Eye a faction, not because they weren't powerful but because they just didn't have the typical stereotyped characteristics of a faction, they were more like a bunch of friends together fucking about.
So right now Celestial is probably the most powerful faction, but that's not very difficult atm considering basically nobody has a real faction, and there's no proof even of Celestial having done anything yet, not even giant farms or anything of that sort (unless I've missed a post, in which case sorry)
In this post I measure power by a combination of factors; wealth, acceleration of wealth (how fast you can/have become wealthy, and how fast it regrows), military & agricultural power, and overall psychological presence on the server
I know this server is trying to stick with the vanilla theme, but what about tpa?, what about warps?, what about vip and vip+? Those are all non vanilla features which were added to make the experience more enjoyable, and since they were added, I have not seen anyone complaining that it is too "non-vanilla"
