NarcoWars 2.0!!

Zack0101 posted May 18, 18

HELLO FELLOW SMUGGLERS AND POLICE OFFICERS!!

      My name is Zack0101 and I am the new Head-Administrator here on NarcoWars and I would just like to welcome you to our new and improved version of NarcoWars!! This version of NarcoWars was released in beta on May 1st, 2018 and since then we have had so many new and great players join us on our network! I have been around NarcoWars for about 6 months and over the past 2 months we have gone through some restructuring that you guys should know about...

     First off, we have a new staff system!! Our Owner Artfcl_Intlgnce has put together an ensamble cast to help him run thiis server to be the best of its potential. This Staff Sytstem includes 5 Staff Ranks; Head-Admin, Admin, Mod, Helper, and Trainee. There is only one Head-Administrator right now, myself, who is in charge of running all aspects of the server underneath the supervision and guidance of the Owner. I have been the Head-Admin of NarcoWars for about 4 months now and I have taken the time to arrange the ranks under me in a very organized fashion. First off, we have our Administrators who are in charge of running everything in their department of the Network. We have 5 Admin positions -- 2 of which are filled-- which leaves one Admin for each department. You might be asking yourself, "What is a department?" Well, let me clear that up for you! A department is a section of the network that we put a staff team in charge of. We currently have 5 departments; Future Development and Management, Community Relations, Player Support, Building Operations, and Staff Coordination. Currently, we have 2 AdministratorsKaskqde who is our Player Support Admin, and Crimed who is our Admin of Future Development and Management. To find a more in-depth description of each department go click on our staff page in the menu bar at the top of your website. Underneath these Administrators, we have Moderators. Moderators are in charge of making sure that everything on the front page of the network is running smoothly. In other words, Moderators are the glue to this network. Moderators are in charge of executing plans and orders set forth by the Admins and Head-Admin. Underneath the Moderators are the Helpers. Helpers are our first line of defense on NarcoWars. Helpers are equipped to assist you in any problem you have with the network and our the bloodline of this network. Helpers are the most important rank on the server because they help keep players around and ensure that everyone is having the best time they can have! Underneath the Helpers we have our Trainees. Our Trainees are trial staff that are learning how to be a staff member on NarcoWars. Trainees are at their designated rank for anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks then after their trial period, the Staff Coordination Admin hand selects which Trainees move onto Helper, and which go back to their player rank.

     Secondly, we also have a new applications system! Now, you may apply for a Trainee, Builder, or Developer position on the network. Our application process have 4 stages; Overview, Background, Interview, and Finalization. The Overview Stage is where the Staff Coordination Team looks over your intial application and decides to either move you on to the Background Stage or deny you for any reason they have. The Background Stage is where we take a deeper look into your player activity on the Network and the Minecraft Community. If anything seems out of place during this stage you may be denied. If you are all "clean" then you may move onto the Interviewing Stage. The interviewing Stage is where you are interviewed by your Staff Coordination Member. Your SCM will ask you various questions about NarcoWars and the Minecraft Community as well as information about yourself. If your SCM deems you worthy to move on, you are passed to the Finalization Stage. This is where all the magic happens. At the Finalization Stage, the Staff Coordination Admin personally looks at your application, all the notes and comments made by the Staff Coordination Team and decides whether to approve your application. If they do approve your application, they are in charge of assigning you a Mentor, and a trial period (the amount of time you're a trainee), as well as giving you the proper documentation to make you the most successful! PLEASE NOTE THAT ANY CONTACT WITH ANY MEMBER OF THE STAFF COORDINATION TEAM REGARDING YOUR APPLICATION DURING YOUR REVIEWING TIME WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY DENIED!!

     Lastly, we have two new gamemodes coming out this summer! GunGames & Prison will be making their debuts sometime during the month of June so stay on the lookout!

     I hope all of you enjoy the server as much as I do, and I hope to see you all very soon!!

I want to take the time to thank all of our wonderful staff both behind the scenes (Scarsz) and on the frontlines (everyone else) who keep the server operations going 24/7 and doing their best to wow our players on a daily basis. I couldn't be more happy with the staff team we have, because it is a strategically knitted quilt of skilled people in diverse areas that make our server successful. This doesn't just go for senior staff. Even our newest additions to our staff team (cough cough Kaskqde), are just as important to have that warm, welcoming peer new players can lean on for support during their first hours online, and ensuring our players’ success in every area. Staff, continue what you are doing, be you, your passion and dedication is seen and much appreciated, I will get to that in at the end.

The real reason for this thread is to announce a few promotions by players who have contributed above and beyond what was expected.

FatedKusari:

Your well-rounded knowledge of all NarcoWars aspects has made you a role model to not only new players, but even our more experienced "no-lifers" as well (we love you no-lifers). When someone asks you a question, I am confident you will not provide the wrong answer. Most you could answer in your sleep, but at worst, I know you will get the answer from someone who knows,instead of guessing or making something up which confuses players and makes staff look inexperienced and unorganized. Even myself am not allknowing of every aspect of the server. It is good to know our players can be in good hands when I'm not around. 

You have shown impressive discipline playing the game while refraining from taking advantage of the magical powers that a few strokes of the keyboard can do. Many have failed that test of character, so for that, I applaud your continued gameplay above and beyond your staff responsibilities. In one word, I would label this as maturity. There is no surprise why you are well regarded in the community as you have never slipped a lick of negative energy to any players or staff. 

There is no doubt have proven your above-average engineering knowledge including both infrastructure and plugin configuration abilities, especially in the realm of Skript, Libraries, Citizens, Permissions, WorldGuard, Essentials, Custom Craftable Items (like the Creeper Egg), and most of all, Custom Mobs, as seen with the Snowmen at the Holiday Spawn and the Guards, Guard Dogs, and Prisoner mobs at the Alcatraz Build. When I have a suspicion of a hacker, the first person's shoulder I tap is yours, as you are admittedly more knowledgeable in diagnosing those scenarios. Your unique skills compliment the server with a touch of flavor to be the icing on the cake. Your ideas for server improvements are consistently realistic and achievable, and considerate of the economy and player experience. Your constant activity on Discord, engagement on our Github managing player issues, and contributions to applications show me you are undoubtably wise, reliable, level-headed, and intelligent.  

I'd be lying if I said I haven't learned a ffew things from you. With this, I am proud to promote you to an Administrator position on NarcoWars. 

Crimed:

Crimed, Crimed, Crimed.

From day 1 you were like a bat out of hell… recklessly driving 80 in a 55. You metaphorically ran over a dog or two, but after a quick spanking, you learned to not speed. You quickly outgrew your initial role to help as a Designer, where you built an incredible custom Resource Pack with drugs and 3D Guns that now today, has been downloaded and enjoyed by hundreds of players in just the past couple weeks. Your next challenge was Gun Configurations, and trust me – not many people understand how intricate that task can be – but I do. Your ability to configure the guns within 24 hours of being assigned the task showed me you had the technical competency to take on a more senior role.

After your successful implementation of the resource pack and the guns, you showcased your gamemaker creativity by designing and fully configuring every aspect of our custom crates. Fated and I were pulling out our hair trying to think of ideas for crates. It is times like these that make me thankful for having such a diverse staff – even those in the same roles having different skills and passions. You were shockingly able to pick up the crates and run with them, full speed, and make fair yet OP crates that the community raves about.  

You showcased your building skills initially at our old spawn, by building a very detailed park (still accessible at /warp staff), but more importantly with your leadership in the quick transformation of our spawn world into a holiday spawn world. What really surprised me, positively, was you had taken the initiative, without being asked, to create a Holiday Event Graphic embedded in a News Post offering players incentives to play NarcoWars during the holiday season. Within a day, that campaign was live and the incentive Christmas Crate was routinely being used. It’s the initiative, commitment, and creativity that tells me you are ready for a promotion to be Administrator of NarcoWars.. My only words of Wisdom to live by with this promotion is to always be checking your mirrors and your speedometer.

I am confident Crimed and Fated’s strengths compliment each other well, and the server wouldn’t be as successful without either one of you. I am looking forward to having you two as our first true Admins. Congratulations to you both, well deserved.

 

I also wanted to include one last promotion. This player built the most impressive arena I have ever seen in just his first 24 hours of his Trial Build. I even setup a warp to show off the build quality even though KOTH isn’t done being setup. He was quick to understand the build style and applied this to even his first build, which highlights his attention to detail and flexibility with build styles.  What I found most pleasing was my ability to leave him with Trial Builders and him provide true mentorship and advice to them from start to finish, which is typically something only a Senior Builder would do. His feedback and criticisms about the trial builders were unbiased, and I felt confident I could leave him as the staff member assigned to oversee trial builds. In parallel, I asked this player to build an Alcatraz Prison, where the players would have to journey through to sell drugs at a premium. After seeing the completed build, no other word than “perfect” would describe how it was so thoughtfully designed. It exceeded our staff expectations tremendously, and yet again, as a 1 main team you were able to turn around another high quality build extremely quickly. For this, I am very happy to announce that thepenmen22 is being promoted from Builder to Senior Builder. Congratulations!

To all staff, I am spreading some Holiday cheer for my thanks for your continued service:

JrMods, JrCM: 50 Donor Points ($5 worth!)

SrMod, Admins, Community Manager, SeniorBuilders: 100 Donor Points ($10 worth!)

Thank you so much for your help making NarcoWars a player favorite. 

Congratulations again to those promoted today, and Happy Holidays! Lets make good use of this awesome Holiday Spawn!

Crimed Thanks man, i really enjoy working on the server. and congratulations to everyone who was promoted or mentioned!
thepenmen22 ty for making me feel welcomed. Means a lot

We here at NarcoWars been working tirelessly to bring you a brand new perspective on roleplay factions servers.

With NarcoWars, you take your choice. You choose if you want to take a risk and attempt to earn millions through drug cartels, or take the path of Justice, and fight vigilantly as Drug Enforcement to lock these smugglers in jail. Those choosing to be a dealer as a street hustler making your way up the illegal drug trade chain off command to build up to prestige your Empire.

Building a good Factions server was the real driving force behind this all, so we tried to put in everything a factions player would need. Instead of earning normal rates at the nightclub, players can sell their drugs in the PVP enabled Prison for extra money. Have fun making it out of the prison alive!

As police, although you cannot farm, you earn 30% more money selling your drugs to the government than those selling it illegally. 

There is an entire 20k width world (top coordinates 10k in each direction) dedicated towards hiding faction bases, and raiding others' bases. 

We are accepting applications for all positions currently, and will need beta testers active October 7-9th. Beta testers, please use the same application as staff. Upon successful completion as a beta tester, you will potentially be chosen to fill a seat on the staff team. 

Here are some screenshots of the work in progres:

Boy do we love this sign at spawn. If its not up, it is for performance reasons. Ask an admin if they can enable it for you!

This image below shows the spawn village, where you spawn in the top right, and must sell your drugs either at the cofffee shop (bottom left), or the warzone, where it is more risky but you can earn more money. 

A look at the modern coffee house/ cafe: 

The coffee shop

A police station, with private rooms for server police officer players ((apply on this site under applications)):

and of course, a mob arena! Last man standing / Hunger Games events!

We hope to see you on the server, and look forward to reviewing applications for Staff and Police Officers.
