Servers really been picking up lately, excited to see if some new people join! I used to play back in the early days of MC and old school factions is where its at. You can't pay to win with ranks but you can pay to look dope with some cosmetics and that really keeps the server fair and fun for everyone
This server is by far the best representation of old school factions I have seen. Back in 2013 or so I remember most of the things that they have tried to implement into the server. Much love to these guys. It is obvious they are dedicated to providing the most fair/old school factions experience possible. I love it. 10/10 would recommend. Plus you can have a dance party if you ask an admin about it. I know that isn't old school but its still a fun thing they have put into the game to make the time spent worth it if you need a break from the grind.
Found this server a couple of days ago, maybe a week at this point- either way, I'm an older MC player from 2013/2014 and occasionally decides to hop back on and find some servers to play. Most servers nowadays are loaded with too many complex plugins and modifications that are just downright confusing and not very noob/user friendly. However, this server with its staff, players, and its plugins are very easy going, user friendly, and as the theme of the server, the up-most wave of nostalgia hits older players such as myself like a freight train. Overall, if you're an older or even new MC player and aren't fond of the newer servers but still want to play on updated servers, this is a great choice for people adventuring out into the newer version of minecraft, and is very reminisce of the old versions such as 1.7.10 and 1.12.
