    FIRST PARAGRAPH IS JUST AN INTRODUCTION:
    So your new to CCG? You frantically search to see if this wonderful new server has factions! And to your luck, they do! You log on, hoping to have the time of your life, wanting to create memories with your fellow peers/friends. Your create a faction, you go X amount of blocks out into the world, and start your base there. The first logical thing to do is start a farm or go mining, after of 5 hours of non stop game play, you start to rack up some raw materials. You have 10 million stacks off wheat, over 5 stacks of diamonds, and so much more. You just can't wait to sell this at the shop! WAHT?!?!? There's no /warp shop? As confused as you are, you ask one of your peers, and they tell you to type /shop. But as you do so, you find out that you can only sell wood, dirt, saplings, pumpkins, cactus and cobble for insanely low prices! The most useless things in factions, and you can't even make a beneficial profit out of them! What have you done? 5 hours of your wonderful, non-social life, down the drain! Dang, I'm NEVER coming on this server again.

    The problem?:
    CCG factions needs a new shop. Badly. There needs to be a MUCH larger variety of items, so that people can practically farm anything. As used on other, much popular faction servers, there is a /warp shop, where there is a built room, with 100's of signs where you can sell and buy a huge diversity of items. But not just raw materials! They have pre-crafted things as well! (Ex: Hoppers, redstone repeaters, tnt, droppers and dispensers). Ofc, there are some other factor's to factions that make it so popular on other servers, but this is probably the most attention-needed problem atm for CCG.

    Things to add to the shop!:
    -SPAWNERS Most faction server I've ever played on, has had spawners (EX: Zombie spawner, skeleton spawner and Iron golem spawner, witch is usually the best spawner to make money off of, since you can go AFK on them and is one of only compact mob grinders you can make with lava and hoppers. There are more spawner, typically there are spawners for every animal.) These items are usually the golden eggs. You spend days of constant farming, and mining (possibly pvping) in order to get enough money to buy these money making suckers.
    -SPAWN EGGS The main spawn egg that people would want to buy is crepper eggs. Why? Say you found, for example, ShadowTeam's base, your the happiest person in the world! But you're soon to find out that ALL of their chest's are covered in water, so you can't even tnt cannon them! Only if they had Creeper spawn eggs that could somehow blow up these chests!(There are ways to blow up chest's in water, if you play factions to much, you would know xD, also, the server would have to turn mob grieving on.) There are also many different ways this can be useful, but I won't go into depth.

    (I'm gonna branch off a little here)

    Kits!:
    This may be a rejected idea, due to the EULA, but I have seen some very popular servers take this away, and quickly put it back in place for some reason, and receive no say-so to take it away. The idea here is that each level of donor gets different kits. EX:

    IRON:

    /kit iron (only can be used every 12 hours)
    -5 diamonds
    -1 normal golden apple
    -1 sharpness 1 iron sword
    -8 obsidian
    LAPIZ:
    /kit lapiz (only can be used every 12 hours)
    -10 diamonds
    -2 normal golden apples
    -1 sharpness 1 Diamond sword
    GOLD:
    /kit gold (only can be used every 24 hours)
    -15 diamonds
    -5 normal golden apples
    -1 Sharpness 2 Diamond sword
    -1 Eff. 3 Iron Pickaxe
    -1 God apple (notch apple)
    -16 obsidian
    DIAMOND:
    /kit diamond (only can be used every 24 hours)
    -20 diamonds
    -9 normal golden apples
    -1 Sharpness 3 Diamond sword
    -1 Eff. 3 Diamond pickaxe
    -3 God apples
    -32 obsidian
    EMERALD:
    /kit emerald (can only be used every 36 hours)
    -30 diamonds
    - 16 normal golden apples
    -1 Sharpness 4 Fire aspect 1 Diamond sword
    -1 Eff. 4 Diamond pickaxe
    -5 God apples
    -48 obsidian
    OBSIDIAN:
    /kit obsidian (can only be used every 36 hours)
    -40 diamonds
    -24 normal golden apples
    -1 Sharpness 5 Fire aspect 1 Sword
    -1 Eff. 5 Diamond pickaxe with Unbreaking III
    -6 God apples
    -64 obsidian ( I mean, it IS the obsidian rank xD)

    The kit's above were just so you could get an idea of what I'm getting at. Also an idea is that starting at the Lapiz/Gold rank, there could be /kit <rank> 2,3,4,etc. Each with a specific purpose, Mining, PvP, or agriculture. If you've read this far, please take this into consideration, factions really has some AMAZING potential, as seen on other servers.

    (Admins/Owners ONLY: If you'd like me to send you an IP of some very successful faction servers, contact me in a convo. )

    Ofc, I do have some other ideas involving factions growth and success, but ill save that for a different thread. :)

    I agree there needs to be more items to buy in the shop and the spawn eggs should only be cow, pig, sheep, chicken, and creeper (creepers price should be raised from the others if this is added).

    I don't think spawners should be allowed because it would make factions easy and people could just buy a cow spawner and get unlimited amount of food or buy a zombie/skeleton spawner and place it by the base and protect your base.

    Also, I'm pretty sure the kits are against the ELUA because it's giving an advantage to donors.

    Semi agreed, but factions isn't about food, it really should be focused on raiding and Pvp :)

    What about chicken spawners for feather to make arrows or skeleton spawners for arrows? Also iron golem spawners for free iron or mobs in general for xp?

    That's the point :D You buy these extremely expensive spawners, so you can get OP as heck. And in the long run, you don't even get THAT OP, I know this from previous experience on some other servers. :p

    Plus, you have to know some special tricks in order to make an extremely successful spawner farm. Like a blaze farm xD Don't even get me started on an AFK machines for those suckers xD

    You want people to be able to get 6 god apples every 36 hours? and 40 diamonds? and a god sword?
    *dramatically removes reading glasses*
    No thank you.


    As for the spawn eggs, i could see this being useful but only for naturally spawning, non-hostile animals such as chickens, cows, pigs and sheep, and no villagers, ocelots or wolves.
    Mob cages would be a no. Just make a grinder.
    Iron golem spawners? Don't think those even exist..?

    100%, the shop needs an expansion, however this could affect SkyBlock as well (they share the same shop). And also, if people have the /f home & /home in use, they wouldn't want to tp away, losing their hard work in travelling.

    I agree with the factions shop, but tbh, kuzeys idea is more viable.

    Could we maybe be able to buy more sethomes rather than the number of them increasing with your rank?
    /sethome 2: 5,000 points
    /sethome 3: 10,000 points
    /sethome 4: 20,000 points
    /sethome 5: 50,000 points
    /sethome 6: 100,000 points
    Gives you something long-term to work for :)

    Would you rather work hard to earn your points, or would you rather be given them all?

    I personally do not play Factions very often, but I do agree. The shop definitely needs to be expanded. Although my opinion really doesn't matter due to the fact that I don't play it. :p
