Faction Rules:
You cannot have another faction living in your base, as each faction is responsible for their own defenses. There won't be any verbal warnings.

Hiding value in any way is strictly not allowed. This includes, but not limited to, value in pv's, enderchests, and auction house. Additionally this includes the excessive holding of balances of any kind. EX. Player balances, token balances, faction balances, or notes. All hidden value will be stripped away with the possibility of strikes. Staff discretion to assess the excessiveness of the hiding.

Value obtained from a raid must be placed within 6 hours of your last shot. Offending faction will have the obtained value removed.

If a faction knowingly invites a blacklisted player on an alt into their faction, or if they gain any advantage from a blacklisted user, they will get 2 faction strikes.

Using bots in any way to automate / assist with making easy money (example: Scripting) will result in 2 faction strikes.

●Max flyboost is x2. Anything more is illegal. 12 hour ban will be given if violated.

Players are not allowed to faction hop using their main account or an alt. Faction hopping is when you leave your faction to go help another faction with raiding or defending. The benefiting faction will receive 1 faction strike if you are caught breaking this rule.

If 4 players from the same faction are banned for client modifications on the faction server, the faction will receive 2 faction strikes. If another 3 are banned, 2 faction strikes will be given. If a faction uses alts to evade faction strikes, the main faction will still be punished.

Merging with another faction is only allowed during the grace period. Doing so after the grace period will result in a DQ from any possible payouts.

During the grace period, any “bitch” claims will be removed. Afterwards, they will not be removed.

Raid claims cannot be larger than 12x12 and anti-raid claims cannot be larger than 8x8. This means that the width and length of the claims cannot exceed 12 chunks either direction (raid claims) or 6 chunks (anti-raid claims). However, you are allowed 6 additional chunks of float (6x1). Punishment from this can include the possible RB of base or strikes.

Each faction is only limited to one corner on the server. You cannot claim corners on an alt account.

A faction with a claimed corner must use their corner as their main base and cannot unclaim and move out of it.

Whoever has the true corner in a chunk (the one that touches both border corners) gets the corner claim. Any other claims will be removed in the surrounding area, as the faction that has the true corner presides over other factions.

Base Buffers cannot be bigger than 15 chunks. You are not allowed to use other factions or alt factions to claim and/or extend your buffer.

Gap bases and Gap raid boxes are not allowed (Anti-Pearl defense).

A faction's base shell can be a maximum of 5 chunks off of the border for a corner base.

The anti-raid claims of a faction cannot act as an extended buffer, meaning that they cannot be in line of the faction’s base or counter.

Each faction is allowed 1 raid claim/anti-raid claim per side of a buffer. You cannot use an alt faction to bypass this rule.

If you are wanting to make a base next to another base, there must be a 60 chunk gap between the end of the two buffers.

You are only allowed to have 40 Sand/Gravel/Anvil walls per side of a buffer.

You are only allowed to have 5 anti nuke walls per side of a buffer. Anti nuke walls are not allowed on cannons.

Regen walls are not allowed.

You are only allowed to have 1 spawner box; in addition to 1 blaze box.

Unraidable defenses are not allowed. Minimum of 1 strike given to the offending faction.

Each faction is allowed a singular fly-claim per side of a buffer. Fly-claims cannot include any type of cannon or trap. Any illegal fly claims will be removed. 1 verbal warning first, followed by a strike after refusal to unclaim.

General Raiding & Cannon Rules
Free-camming either on an alt account or main account will result in a 1 faction strike being issued to the faction (main faction will receive 1 strike if free-cam happened via an alt faction), as well as a ban punishment on the main account (if an alt account is used).

You are only allowed to have a maximum of 3 chunks of walls per side of your cannon box and 5 chunks of walls on your buffer counter. 1 strike could be issued.

You are not allowed to have oceans in raid claims or buffer counters. You will receive 1 faction strike, with the possibility of a RB.

Factions are not allowed to use an alt faction to start a raid on their own base. Factions are not allowed to purposely keep another faction in a raid to prevent another faction from raiding. Factions caught breaking these rules will receive 3 faction strikes.

Spawners cannot be fully protected with any types of blocks or liquids. This means that a spawner has to always be raidable using a Creeper Egg. Covering spawners will result in 1 faction strike. If the offending faction is raided, the covered spawners are given to the raiding faction.

Collectors cannot be protected with any types of blocks or liquids. In addition, collectors must be placed inside the spawner box.

A faction is not allowed to take down spawners or hoppers while being raided. This means that you cannot mine, TNT or Creeper Egg your spawners or hoppers to prevent the raiding faction from obtaining your spawners or hoppers. Doing so will result in 1 faction strike.

Using printer or gen buckets to patch walls while being raided is not allowed. You will receive 1 faction strike. You are allowed to start gen/printer patching after a raid has entered the cooldown phase.

Wilderness patching is not allowed. Based on severity, you will receive 1 faction strike.

A Faction is only allowed to have 1 counter cannons inside their buffer per side of the buffer. You will receive 1 verbal warning, and if the offense is repeated, 1 faction strike will be issued.

Countering a raid claim from behind the claim is not allowed. The back is defined as the opposite side of the raid claim from the base. This will result in 2 faction strikes. The user will also receive a 7d gameplay ban.

A faction can only fire 1 cannon at a time while raiding a faction base or cannon box. If you want to switch cannons when raiding a base, you must wait 15 minutes before firing even if the raid was terminated. You don't have to wait 15 minutes between switching counter cannons while raiding a cannon box.

A faction is unable to use their buffer counter while on shield. However, they are allowed to side counter. The offending faction could receive a strike.

A faction can only raid from one side of a base or cannon box at a time.

If a faction is breached by an illegal cannon, the value will be stripped from the faction that used the cannon. The value will be reinstated to the faction that got raided. All cases will be handled by the staff team to ensure that this isn’t abused.

Only one faction is allowed to raid a base at once. No other factions or players are allowed to be in the base claims being raided, besides the faction raiding and the faction being raided.
A raid is terminated if the faction stops raiding for 15 minutes.
You will receive 1 verbal warning, and if the offense is repeated, a 1 faction strike will be issued.


Only the faction that is being raided can defend the base and help stop the raid. Interfering with a raid will result in 1 faction strike.

Roof cannons, unless the Y level of the roof is under 254.
Phase cannons
Overstackers over 6 blocks
Horizontal Pseudo cannons
Push Nuke cannons
Left/Right shooting cannons

The Strike system is designed to carry out disciplinary measures against factions that break the rules. They also aim to keep the community in line. All strikes are tracked by the Factions staff. A strikes will be issued if any of the rules above are violated. Continuous violations of the rules above will result in further punishments which are defined below.

3 strikes will result in a 20% deduction of the faction value. (Value will be taken at the time of payouts, this will determine your faction’s value for payouts)

5 strikes will result in a 50% deduction of the faction value. (Value will be taken at the time of payouts, this will determine your faction’s value for payouts)

8 strikes will result in a disqualification of the faction for the opportunity to win payout.

10 strikes will result in the faction being disbanded, and all spawners and money being removed from them.
Creating an alternate faction attempting to evade strikes are not allowed.

In the event of co-leaders leaving a faction with strikes to create a new faction, strikes have the possibility to carry over.
