We are finally here folks!

The Summer Update is upon us. This post will include everything you need to know in regards to the update. The sections are called HCF, UHCF, Practice, and Kits. Want to get to one? CTRL + F, type one of those sections in the box and it'll take you to it. Without further a do I present to you the Summer Update!


Punishments
Punishments will be wiped tonight, June 27th at 11:59 PM EST.
Punishments were last wiped on March 14th in preparation for our Spring Update. It is only right that we do the same for the Summer Update. If you were banned or blacklisted for the following:

✦ DDoS
✦ Charge back

You will not be unbanned or unblacklisted. The charge back punishment is permanent unless we are reimbursed and the DDoS punishment is handled at staff discretion. 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.


HCF
HCF is finally getting it's long awaited update this weekend.
Infernal releases tomorrow, June 28th at 6:00 PM EST. Reforged releases on Saturday, June 29th at 2:00 PM EST.

It is extremely important that you read the entirety of this section if you do plan on playing Infernal and/or Reforged. We have implemented a tremendous amount of changes to HCF this time around. Players should know what to expect so that they are not thrown off guard. Without further a do, the change log.

First and foremost any existing bugs you've came across on Viper has been fixed. We've been forming a document full of bugs since April. New Overworld and Nether terrain is finally coming to Viper every. single. map. Spawners are now spread out across the Overworld terrain. Crowbars are purchasable in the in game shop for $15,000. A KOTH schedule has implemented - KOTH's will run every 1 hour and a half. No more enchanting Protection / Sharpness pieces above Map Kit on Royale and Reforged. Tons of other stuff has been fixed, all of that info will be in its own post for the people that are interested.

KOTH Ticket
Similar to regular KOTH’s, the only difference is that tickets are used (similar to Conquest). In order to win your faction must obtain 15 tickets. In order to be rewarded 1 ticket you must stand on cap for 1 minute. Once you stand on cap for 1 minute and you receive 1 ticket, the timer resets back to 1:00 and you repeat. If your faction does not win a ticket within a time frame of 3 minutes your faction will start to lose tickets unless you step back on the capzone. A countdown from 1:00 to 0 seconds will appear in chat (in 15 second intervals) letting the faction know that they are about to lose a point.


Reputation
Reputation is very similar to the ELO concept on Practice. In order to gain reputation you can do the following:
✦ Kill players. (+5 rep increase per kill)
✦ Capture events. (+25 rep increase for every online fac member)

In order to lose reputation the following must happen:
✦ Die to a player, mob, or partner package item. (-5 rep decrease per death)
✦ Be punished by a staff member. Mute, ban and/or blacklist. (-15 rep decrease for a mute, -50 rep decrease for a temporary ban, back to 1000 for a permanent ban and/or blacklist)

All players start off at 1000 rep. Your reputation is next to your name so every time you speak the entire server sees it. This is a way for players to build their credibility on Viper. Since reputation resets only 6-8 weeks, players are given a ton of time to build up their rep. Rep is a great way to get into factions, a great way to let players know you're one of the best players on Viper, and so much more. The top 3 players with the highest rep at the end of each season will receive a special cape on Cobra.

Rep is shared between all HCF servers (UHCF, Infernal, Royale and Reforged).


Rewards
Players will be rewarded for reaching a certain amount of playtime, similar to the way Tokens work on Kits. A list of rewards can be found below.

When you complete one challenge, then you unlock the next one. More information on the Battle Pass can be viewed on our store at midnight when it goes live.

Supply Drops
Supply Drops is something we promised you at the beginning of Viper but we weren't able to implement due to a few complications, however we're ready to release it this time. Random chests will spawn in the Overworld and Nether filled with loot. Coordinates of the chest will be posted in the chat.

Treasure Island and Controllable Land
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.

Faction Tournaments
Tournaments will take place every Sunday on Reforged / Royale by our staff. A big bracket will be posted in our Discord and faction leaders may enter their factions into the tournament that way. Arenas will be posted around the map and that's where factions will fight at.

New Event Loot
There are three new loot tables:
✦ Treasure Loot (Diamond, Emerald, Iron, Gold Blocks and more)
✦ Combat Loot (KOTH Fire, KOTH Sharpness and more)
✦ Potion Loot (Ingredients, Rare Potions and more)

You can now choose what type of loot you would like to receive rather than it being automated.

Bed Bombing
Bed Bombing will be making it's debut this weekend on Viper! In order to use a bed bomb you must be in the Nether. Once you place the bed on the floor it'll explode similar to the way TNT works. A fair warning that you can be damaged when placing them so be very cautious when using these! Beds can be obtained in crates.

Firework Launcher
Upon right clicking a Firework you will be sent 4 blocks in the vertically, 5 blocks horizontally. There is a 5 second cooldown in between uses. This is a good way to get out of sticky situations. Fireworks can be obtained in crates.

50 diamonds = Haste 4
125 diamonds = Fire Resistance

Rogue (Infernal / Kits only)
Rogue will be making its debut on Viper this weekend! You can use this class on Infernal and Kits only. You can purchase the 45 day Rogue class on store.vipermc.net at midnight when it releases.

New Bard Effects
When holding an Ink Sac in Bard you should be able to give yourself and teammates that are in range of you Invisibility I for 6 seconds. When you right click the Ink Sac you should lose 1 Ink Sac and it should give Invisibility I to yourself and teammates that are in range of you for 1 minute and 25 seconds. When you right click the Ink Sac it should also take 45 energy from the bard.

When right clicking Coal in Bard you should be able to give enemies than are in a radius of you Weakness II for a total time of 6 seconds. When you right click the Coal the Bard should lose 1 Coal. This should take 30 energy from the Bard.

When right clicking a Fire Charge in Bard you should be able to give enemies that are in a radius of you Starvation II for 6 seconds. When you right click the Fire Charge the Bard should lose 1 Fire Charge. This should take 30 energy from the Bard.

Any questions? Feel free to leave a reply below.


Practice
Practice Season 2 is also finally here!
Practice releases tomorrow, June 28th at 5:00 PM EST.

Knockback and Potions
First and foremost it's a given that the old knockback and potions aren't the greatest. That's why we've modified it for Season 2. Potions were originally vanilla (were not sped up) and the knockback was some really old values we generated years ago. We have came up with new values for knockback and have sped up potions just a slight bit. Feedback on both of these are greatly appreciated.

Team Fights
Team Fights will be making its debut on Practice tomorrow! You will be able to fight against other teams with Bard and Archer. Rogue will be implemented later in the season. Appropriate sized arenas have been made for team fights so that you guys have plenty of space to fight.

Leaderboards
The GUI just wasn't cutting it so we've decided to redo leaderboards entirely. The 3 players with the highest global elo will have their name and head featured in Spawn.


UHCF
UHCF will be making its debut on Viper later in the month. We are working very closely with xNestorio and TheBestGinger13 on providing you all with a fresh, unique yet simple and elegant UHCF server. We are currently open to take suggestions from the community. If there is anything in specific that you would like to see on UHCF feel more than free to let us know. A more formal post on UHCF will come later in the month when we get closer to the release.


Trailer
The trailer is now live and can be viewed on our partners' channels. Looking to earn some free rewards? Crate Keys, Partner Packages, maybe even a rank? Re-upload the Summer Update trailer and come in TeamSpeak (ts.vipermc.net) with proof and you'll be rewarded for your kind doing.
