    Hello guys,

    I'm back again with a new suggestion. I've got some concerns about the Obsidan rank. I feel like many more things should be added to make the Obsidian rank worth it's money. There is currently a miniscule difference between the Emerald rank and the Obsidian rank.

    So my first issue is the fact that the Obsidian rank is purely a cosmetic rank, it doesn't give you any extra in-game features. For example being able to create your own 'Private server' (I do not say this is going to be added, but it would be a cool feature) or being able to use your vanity items in the waiting lobby before the game starts.

    I hope the new Free Build update will be the solution to these issues. Let me give some examples:
    (I'm not sure if these will violate the EULA)
    1. The amount of people in your faction is depending on fhe owner his rank. (Stone-Gold 20 People, Diamond-Emerald 35 People and Obsidian 50 People) Against the EULA!!

    2. Like a daily /kit command. The higher your rank, the better your kit will be.
    This is not against the EULA I think. A stone rank will be able to receive a Donator kit , by opening Cubeletes (or other 'gamble' features) Against the EULA!!

    3. Add some Custom banners, this would be very cool to design yout base.

    Apart from the in-game features, more vanity items are needed too. For example adding Custom Shields, more gadgets and more gear/clothes.

    I hope you understand me, this is not meant as critism. And I'm not trying to offend you (CC staff) in any way.

    Regards,
    Dennis

    1 and 2 are against the EULA.

    More vanity would be nice. I think that having a double-jump feature for Obsidians would be cool :)

    Factions is always being a struggld with the EULA. Because if everyone get the same kits, abilities, etc. then what's the fun about it? Everyone will have the same strenght.

    Easy. Have some wool, coloured wool, some other special items to get other patrons and a crafting table. Boom! You got your custom banner.

    I'm pretty sure #1 doesn't violate the EULA, as it isn't a pay2win feature.

    EULA isn't just "pay2win protection" but it ensures two main things: you can't make money out of what Mojang made (including but not limited to: items, abilities, privileges or games) and that you can't reward individual players if they rewarded you back. Like, you can't reward someone with a prize to the cost of voting your server, and you can't sell "OP Armor" or literally any in-game object, block or mob at a price of real money. Which is why cubelets for voting got removed, and why you don't see any factions server with "Buy VIP+ OP Armor Sharp 5 Sword Power 3 Bow" signs, like 2013. Why? Because when people that payed 500 euro for a sharpness 666 sword threw the sword in lava they would have emailed Mojang with "HEY I PAYED FOR THIS GIMME BAK MY STOOFF!!11!! I WILL SUE YOU!!!1!!" When Mojang couldn't really do anything about it. So yeah......

    "Like a daily /kit command. The higher your rank, the better your kit will be."
    I dislike how you are suggesting to make this server pay to win.
    But a custom banner or gadgets for lobbies are a good suggestion

    Many of the suggestions in this thread violate the EULA, but fear not we are working on more rank related perks and bonuses that are completely EULA compliant :)

    They are against the EULA.
    1) A faction with 50 players is better than a faction with 2 players. 50/20 or 50/30 is the same case.
    2) As far as I know, everyone has to have the same chances. A daily kit is on a daily basis whilst achieving them by opening Cubelets is based on luck.
