Prison: Gangs Rework

Hey everyone! Introducing a brand new update for the Prison realm - we have completely re-worked the Gangs system!

Previously, when players joined one of the three gangs, they unlocked a bunch of perks and passive effects that were related to that gang's theme. Now, in the re-worked Gang system, there's so much more you can do!

Joining a Gang

If you're not part of a gang, you'll be prompted to join one in a menu that appears when you first join the Prison realm. If you're already part of a gang, then you can view each gang's perks via /gangs. The 3 gangs that inhabit Prison are the Sellers (dedicated to getting the best sell deals and purchases), the Thugs (dedicated to being the best at PvP) & the Miners (dedicated to mining the most).

When you join the gang initially, you'll be given items related to your gang. As well as this, you'll be given some additional one-time only items.

As well as these changes, we listened to feedback and players in the same gang will now be able to deal damage to each other. Previously this wasn't a feature and it caused some frustration in PvP as there was a limited the amount of players that could actually fight each other.

Gang Leveling

After joining a gang, players will be able to increase their gang level by participating in actions that give you EXP. Each individual gang has different actions that you have to do to gain EXP, as each gang is dedicated to a particular aspect of the Prison life (selling, PvP, mining).

Players can level up in their gang to a maximum level of 25, with each level unlocking more perks and new abilities. Here's what you can look forward to when you level up:

Sellers

Gain more money for the items you sell as you progress through the levels. You'll unlock lots of different types of boosters, as well as having your base sell prices at certain places increased.

Thugs

Gain permanent passive effects that are helpful when PvPing other players, as well as unlock the daily Thug PvP kit via /kit thug at level 12.

Miners

Gain more mining experience, more blocks and ores from mining, as well as % off of ranking up and prestiging prices. The miner's dream!

Here's what each gang needs to do to gain EXP:

Sellers

Selling to NPCs gives 15XP (5m cooldown)
Buying CEs from /tokenshop gives 15XP (1m cooldown)
Merchant proccing gives 20XP (5m cooldown)

Getting Top Boss Damage gives 150XP (30m cooldown)

Miners

When you unlock perks, you'll permanently have them until the end of the season, so it is definitely worth grinding out the levels to get to level 25.
