Welcome to the very first week of our 1 Year Anniversary update! It's finally here. Lots of hard work, effort, love and time went into this update. We hope you all love it just as much as we loved making it for you.
Punishments will be wiped tonight, October 18th at 12:00 AM EST.
Punishments were last wiped on June 27th in preparation for our Summer Update. It is only right that we do the same this time around. If you were banned or blacklisted for the following:
✦ Charge back
It is highly unlikely that you will be unbanned/unblacklisted. The charge back punishment is permanent unless we are reimbursed. If you provide sufficient evidence of reimbursing Viper upon a chargeback you may come into TeamSpeak (ts.vipermc.net) and a staff member will sort you out. The DDoS punishment is handled at staff discretion.
Royale and Reforged will be returning alongside Infernal.
Royale releases on Saturday, October 19th at 2:00 PM EST. 20 Man Factions, No SOTW Timer, and more.
Infernal releases on Friday, October 18th at 6:00 PM EST. 8 Man Factions, 1 hour 30 minute SOTW Timer, and more.
We've made lots of changes to all HCF servers, especially Royale and Reforged. It's crucial that you read this part of the post.
Our previous way of handling deathbans was very common and boring, however we're switching it up for this update. Upon dying on any HCF server, you will be teleported underneath Spawn to our deathban arena. When in the deathban arena you have a few choices:
✦ Revive yourself and get teleported back to Spawn
✦ Wait out your deathban and fight in the PvP-enabled part of the arena
While deathbanned you won't be able to run any commands other than /hub. You will only be able to type in chat. When fighting in the PvP-enabled part of the arena you will be given a free Diamond kit. You won't lose any DTR or gain kills/deaths in the PvP-enabled part of the arena. With all that being said you obviously won't be sent to the hub anymore upon dying. We think this system is much more efficient for our players to quickly get back in the fight by eliminating the "waiting in queue" part of the process.
Extreme Classes is our new take on a new and improved Bard, Archer, Rogue and Miner. There will be a secondary shop located in Spawn. You will be able to purchase the following:
✦ Extreme Bard Helmet for $50,000
✦ Extreme Archer Helmet for $50,000
✦ Extreme Rogue Helmet for $40,000
✦ Extreme Miner Helmet for $30,000
Bard: Once equipped, you will be able to give teammates / enemies an effect for an extra 3 seconds.
Archer: Once equipped, every time you shoot a player from at least 15 blocks away you will take away 2 hearts from them and you will be rewarded with 2 hearts. If you have 10 hearts then you shall be given absorption hearts all the way up to 10 absorption hearts.
Rogue: Once equipped, when you backstab a player 2 times in a row the 3rd backstab will deal 4 hearts of damage to the enemy you are attacking.
Miner: Once equipped, every 100 ores you break all your pickaxes will repair back to full durability.
Yes, it's finally here! We had this planned for the Summer Update but we made a decision to implement it for our Anniversary update. Every single day you will be given 2 new challenges. By completing them you will be rewarded with in game loot that isn't obtainable through crates, partner packages or event crates.
Season 2 of Reputation is here! Going into Season 2, we've made a few modifications. Read below to check them out.
✦ 1 Kill: +10 Rep
✦ 1 Death: -30 Rep
✦ Mine 50 Diamond Ore: +50 Rep
✦ Mine 50 Emerald Ore: +100 Rep
✦ Cap an event: +50 Rep for all online members
✦ Muted by staff: -50 Rep
✦ Temporary ban by staff: -150 Rep
✦ Permanent ban by staff: Reset back to 1000 Rep
Every time you gain/lose reputation an all new chat message will appear as well. Check it out here.

Treasure Island and Controllable Land
Yes, for real this time. Another cool feature we promised at the beginning of Viper but had to remove due to complications, but after a lot of re-work we are now able to implement this once again for the Summer Update. Treasure Island has chests all around it full of loot. Good place to go if you're running low on supplies. Controllable Land has a capture point at the top of it. Once you capture it, you'll gain access to the bottom of the land. You can find certain spawners at the bottom of the land.
