Factions is one of the gamemodes of Minecraft Central. It was added on the 6th of July 2014. The idea of Factions is to have a faction that is powerful and loyal at the same time. There have been 14 resets to Factions. There used to be two Factions servers, 1 of which was added on the 3rd of March 2015. The realms combined into one on the 23rd of March 2018.
The goal is to either create or join a faction and build a base that other players can't raid. Factions have power and claims which need to be in balance. Factions is a very PvP-based gamemode and many things that normally aren't allowed, such as death-trapping and scamming are allowed.
There is an enchanting station, Overworld, the Nether, the End and Wasteland worlds.
On Factions 4.0 some new Factions perks that can be purchased from the web store were added on the 31st of January 2016. These included 15 Set homes, No Fall Damage, TNT Fill Command, Kit Cannon, Kit Potions and stacking potions. The stacking potions ability was removed on the 3rd of February 2016.
The item selector for Factions is a TNT block. The NPC in Lobbies is a knight who is holding a TNT block. No data was linked between the two Factions servers.

Custom Enchants were added during Factions 14.0, on the 22nd of January 2019. Players can add echants to their armour and get potion effects that last as long as you keep that armour on you. In order to get the Strength and Fire Resistance effects, the enchantment needs to be applied to all armour pieces. If you have Strength I on one armour piece, and the others are Strength II, you still only get the Strenght I effect. When buying Custom Enchants, you get 1 random book that you can drag onto the armour in your inventory. Each Custom Enchant costs 30 EXP levels. The Obsidian Breaker custom enchant was added on the 23rd of March 2019 when Factions 15.0 launched. It isn't a potion effect but it allows players to instantly break obsidian.
