    Hey, I am using the newest versions of Factions, MCore, and all parts of Essentials (Chat, Core, Etc) and am using EssentialsChat for faction names. I have it set per group and am using this: [{faction_name}] &7[{GROUP}]&r {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&r {MESSAGE}

    When a player joins it just says [{faction_name}] next to their name! How can I fix this:( I know it used to say I need a dev build of essentials on the massive craft site, but now it says it works with the latest essentials. What am I doing wrong?

    How do you fix the problem where people are able to PVP in safezones? The perms and flags are configured to where they should not be able to. Are there any plans to put back in worldguard support?

    Actually, they only modified and removed things. Nothing was really added, else than more dependencies and more shit.

    The creators of factions seriously need to read their comments and take them seriously. Nearly every comment, if not all, are negative comments and that shouldn't be the case. There is a simple fix to this, and it's to go back to the old versions of factions.

    Factions was simply a great plugin before this MCore junk. Now that they've added all this extra stuff that is unnecessary, the plugin is complete shit.

    I see many are having problems with this new monstrosity. I have not used factions in sometime but decided a week ago to open a PvP factions world. The whole mcore + factions thing does not really bother me because of the fact that I have been long away from factions. What does bother me, however, is the fact that factions keeps causing huge spikes in CPU usage that bring the server to a halt. No errors in console, it takes about 1-4 minutes to respond to save-all and end commands, but works fine after restart. This is a bare server. No players yet, only factions, mcore, worldedit installed.

    I hope this is just a minor hiccup and will be corrected in the next build. Though, after reading through the comments here it appears this move to the new configuration with mcore is not popular. To be honest it does seem like a lot of complexity that is merely complex for the sake of being complex.

    I realize that this plugin is mostly designed for MassiveCraft and as such they most likely care little for how this change annoys others. I am sure mcore serves as a nice common core for their custom plugins. That said, don't expect them to revert back.

    If someone does fork a 1.5.x version that does not included the extra junk I would be interested in using it.

    ''protectOfflineFactionsFromExplosions": true/false Should come back... just a suggestion, of course, who knows what new extremely weird changes this plugin might get.

    Allright I cannot enable factions on my Hexxit Server. I use MCPC+ and already have WorldGaurd and Worldedit. I have the .jar for mcore and factions in the plugins folder but they both don't create the plugin folders when i restart the server... Any advice? Please!! We are getting behind because of this.
