    These rules are put in place not to make people’s day terrible but to ensure everyone’s safety and enjoyment. Any concerns or issues with the rules can be brought up to the staff team for discussion. Final punishment or consequence is within the discretion and advisory of administration/management. Depending on the severity of a rule being broken the consequences can be escalated and even lead to
    permanent removal from the server.

    Logging out while being frozen or any attempt at deleting old files, deleting search history or modifying game will result in being permanently removed from the server as well as unable to purchase an unban from the server. You will also be banned if fail to meet up on discord.

    You are not permitted to record the screen sharing process. If you record the SS process you and all your affiliated accounts and IP will be banned from the server.

    Further course of action may be taken depending on the severity and extent of impact done from the racism, discrimination, prejudice, discretion and final say is left with administration/management.

    5. Respect Players and Staff
    Staff are volunteers that are here to ensure the server runs smoothly. They do not have the option of ignoring rule breakers. If you choose to disrespect or disregard them, you risk punishment. They are not here to abuse, they are here to keep the server running for everyone. This includes excessive trolling, name calling etc.

    8. Undermining The Spirit of the Server
    Any participation or actions are taken that deals with undervaluing the server or attempt at creating excessive lag through overpowered cannons or use banned cannons, thrashing/attacking server, etc. It will result in being permanently removed from the server.

    9. In Game Scamming is Not Permitted
    Scamming is not permitted on the server. Players misrepresenting items for sale, offering to give an item in payment for actions and not following through when able, bait and switch, are all examples of scamming. This INCLUDES renaming items as if they are something they are not (like mooshroom eggs, custom enchant books and the like) in the Auction House. Using alts to scam could result in a permanent ban.

    1st Offense: 14 Day Temp Ban
    2nd Offense: 30 Day Temp Ban
    3rd Offense: Permanent Ban
    4th Offense: IP Ban

    10. TP/TPA Killing, Portal Trapping, and Traps
    TP/TPA Killing and Traps that remove a players ability to /spawn or /home will result in removal from the server without warning. Examples of bannable traps are those that would render the player completely unable to play (ie: If the trapper were to log off the player would be stuck there indefinitely). If a player chooses to enter a dangerous area they do so at their own risk (This is, after all Factions boys and girls!)

    Spamming or advertising for "Wild PvP" in which players unclaim an area with the plan to claim on arrival of the other member can result in the same outcome.

    1st Offense: 14 Day Temp Ban
    2nd Offense: Permanent Ban
    3rd Offense: IP Ban

    Using alts to avoid a harsher punishment could result in the removal of your accounts from the server. Attempting to trap with requests like "/tp for wild pvp" can result in an immediate 7-day ban, removal of your inventory, and/or a faction mute for your whole faction.

    11. In Real Life Money Scamming / Chargebacks
    In Real Life Money Scamming in which someone promises to purchase a server store item in return for favors in the game will result in a Ban. Scamming someone out of IRL Money is a perm ban. Period.

    Purchasing ranks for any player other than yourself or in trade for items in the game is not permitted. Players who agree to this type of transaction are placing themselves at risk. Chargebacks will result in a permanent ban from the server until the funds are repaid for a first-time offense only.

    Using alt accounts to make a purchase and chargeback will result in your account and all affiliated accounts being removed from the server as well may result in an IP ban.

    Initiating a Chargeback on a purchase may result in removal of your account, affiliated accounts, and IP from the server.

    12. Third Party Deals
    Trading in-game items or an account with goods or a rank for paypal, or any outside compensation such as CSGO skins or items on another server is not allowed and will be punished for.

    1st Offense: Up to 7d Ban
    2nd Offense: up to 30d ban
    3rd Offense: Permanent Ban

    13. Bypassing Locked / Muted Chat
    If you choose to attempt to bypass a chat lock, it could result in removal from the server. Bypassing when staff are trying to communicate without interruption on something that is seen as important only undermines the server as a whole.

    Bypassing locked chat includes (but is not limited to) /bounty, disbanding factions, etc.

    1st Offense: 5m - 60m temp ban from the server.

    Continued offenses could result in complete removal from the server.

    14. 20 Chunk Buffer Limit
    Factions are allowed a maximum of 20 chunks buffering their base. A 20 chunk buffer equates to 160 genned walls (just to put it in perspective for you).

    The buffer is measured from the EXTERIOR WALL OF YOUR BASE and does NOT include the base itself.

    If a faction has a buffer that exceeds 20 chunks

    • They may be asked to correct the issue themselves
    • A 5 chunk line maybe unclaimed by an Admin
    If a faction reclaims that radius, the buffer faction, or the main faction risk further repercussions including, but is not limited to warning, ban, or disbanding of the faction.

    This means that aside from raid claims (cannon claims) from attacking factions you MUST have a minimum of 5 chunks of wilderness between your claims and the claims from another faction (even in the case of stripping your claims). You may not attempt to bypass this rule by having your "neutral" or "enemy" friends buffer your claims for you.

    15. No Inappropriate Usernames
    As stated in rule 4: Racism, Discrimination, Sexual, and Derogatory Remarks, Impersonating staff, or words that are typically filtered on Peace PvP are examples of IGN's not welcome here. If a player is seen with an inappropriate IGN, they will be banned until they change their name and an appeal is submitted.

    1st Offense: Permanent ban until changed

    16. You may NOT use TNT of any kind to "protect" your spawners
    This means you may not place TNT around your spawners to prevent them from being raided (or destroyed if you raid them). Trying to create unraidable spawners undermines the spirit of the game (this is factions after all). Players caught breaking this rule could be removed from the server.

    17. Bypassing Mute
    Bypassing a mute could result in removal from the server. Wait out your mute and follow the rules, it's really that simple.

    18. Bypassing Ban
    Logging in through another account while having an account banned will result in being ip banned from the server.

    19. Auto Cannoning
    Auto Cannoning is a bannable offense. It undermines the spirit of the game and player interaction/involvement.

    20. Spawners cannot be water protected and you are NOT permitted to obby encase them.
    You may not exploit or try to find ways around this rule. Spawners are not permitted to be water protected, period.

    You may NOT:
    • Encase your spawners in water protected blocks (obsidian or the like)
    • Do not encase tightly spawners in obsidian or any other uncreggable block.
    • Try to find another means to encase your spawners in an attempt to undermine this rule or the spirit of this rule.

    You may:
    • Water protect your grinder room (regardless of the block construction)
    ! WARNING !
    Attempts to undermine this rule could result in your removal from the server​
