    Are you kidding me? Everyone complains about it on the forums and everytime a Developer releases a new update for some gadgets they will say "Since the EULA crisis we can not give out anything that will boost players in games. However since gadgets are purely cosmetic we can give donors more gadgets than non-donors.

    You're forgetting about the Fire Damage (not lava) AND the , which deals 1 damage per second. It stacks with lava damage, which means you're taking 4 ordinary damage per 0.5 seconds with the 1 TRUE damage per second. Also, when touched by lava, it takes 15 seconds for the fire effect to wear off. :eek: (fire damage isn't affected by armor, only enchantments)

    Sorry, but when someone does some calculations with vanilla minecraft, I can't help but make sure it's correct. :p

    A agree I miscalculated the aftermath fire damage, but the fire damage during float was included when I sat myself in a lava pool in vanilla minecraft.
    However, even though there is fire damage after exiting the lava, you still have natural regen to keep you nearly stabilized. Furthermore, this damage shouldn't really be considered, since chances are the Timelord will have his free god apples (which contains it's own 5m or complete fire resistance) or at least a water bucket somewhere in his inventory. All things considered, you really can't die from lava while using the timelord kit.

    But in the end, couldn't you just keep a water bucket with you at all times just in case? ;)

    Also, when I said fire did TRUE damage, I meant it wasn't affected by armor.

    Ive never heard any developer say that they cant do things because of the eula, and ive never seen anyone complain about the eula. Just you and some other people. The eula is irrelevant to everything and nobody cares about it. Whoever told you Hypixel almost got sued is on crack because why would minecraft sue a minecraft server? Thats harming their own bussines

    They can't sue for it. In the EULA itself it says they'll terminate your account for violating it.

    *cough* oh yeah, while we're talking about EULA, did you know it's against the EULA to sell/give optifine capes? @Paradoxi

    To clarify about the EULA:

    The EULA is currently not enforced, especially for servers that are smaller. Take cosmicpvp for example. They don't follow the EULA and they have far more OP things than we do and also over 3.5k online players.

    The EULA was put in place for some ungodly reason and mojang had realized that they had no reason or ability to enforce the EULA and as such, if mojang and Microsoft want to ignore it, I see no reason why server owners shouldn't either.

    The thing is, that Project Mayhem has followed the EULA before factions was released. We knew, however, that there was no possible way that we could reasonably have a factions server that had donor perks that "follow the EULA". You see, it wouldn't make sense to have factions if it isn't successful for the server, and what that means is that there needs to be sufficient donations to justify its existence as a game.

    Understand that factions is a game that is supposed to be hard. That doesn't mean it's impossible, especially if you get over the initial bump and begin to become strong. This can be done with our without time lord armor. With grinders, eventually, people will have a source of endless armor that is even better or equivalent to Timelord armor.

    We don't force anybody to purchase anything in our store and the games are just as "playable" and pretty much as much fun as if you didn't have the ranks.

    Following the EULA ensures security in case it is ever enforced and not ignored. I assure you that if it is enforced, we would change things in a way that made everybody (including mojang) happy, however I don't believe it will ever be enforced, but rather it will continue to be ignored by mojang.
