Faction Rules Greetings everyone, This thread goes over the official faction rules. Please keep in mind that rules are subject to change at any time and you’re responsible for keeping up to date with our server rules. As far as punishments go, faction strikes will be given out as followed: Strike 1 - Faction warning Strike 2 - 15% Potential value taken Strike 3 - 30% Potential value taken Strike 4 - 50% Potential value taken Every strike after the 3rd Strike will take 50% Potential value To view if your faction has any strikes you may issue the following command in-game: /f strike Cannon Speeds & Miscellaneous Rules One wall can only be broken every 3 seconds per shot excluding the exceptions in Rule 28. If these speeds are passed, a strike will be issued and a rollback will occur. Keep in mind we do not go based on just video proof. We require a staff member to confirm the speed first. If a faction disband occurs, all players in the faction will have their balance reset. You cannot attempt to create a faction to bypass strikes or reset your strikes. If a faction and/or player has allegedly broken a faction rule, it has to be brought up to us within 24 hours via support tickets in the Official Discord or else it will not be dealt with. This applies to the rules: #4, #8, #10, #13, #14, #18, #22+ We will not give a faction two strikes for the same issue/reason unless the Senior Staff Team determine it was severe enough to punish from. We will also not strike a faction more than once in a 24 hour period for breaking the same rule unless a rule states otherwise. We will not punish factions for breaking the following rules during grace period: #14, #21-23, #26+ Rule #1, #13, #14, #21, #24, #35, Removal of the old Rule #28, Replaced "Spawner Value" with "Potential Value" --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Faction Rules 1. Alt factions and/or alt accounts cannot be used to evade any of these rules Punishment: The alt faction will be disbanded if there is one, and the main faction will receive the appropriate punishment that the alt faction or alt account would have received (depending on the rule violation). 2. A faction can only claim a single corner Punishment: The alt faction will be disbanded and the main faction will receive the appropriate punishment that the alt faction would have received (depending on the rule violation). Note: If at the start of the world, you claim a corner as a one man faction, you may be susceptible to having it unclaimed as we prefer having proper factions player and occupying that space properly instead of a solo player. 3. Bitch claiming is not permitted during the first week of the map Punishment: If a faction has bitch claims they will be asked to unclaim all of them. If the faction refuses to unclaim, it will be unclaimed by a Senior Staff member. If the claims get reclaimed by the same faction after already being removed, the user who claimed the land will be banned for 3 days. 4. You cannot blow up any spawner(s) to bypass the cost needed to mine spawners Punishment: 2 day ban for the player involved. The spawners will be removed from the server or given to the raiding faction if they have them on lockdown or the spawners are actively being creeper egged (See the exception in Rule #32). 5. You cannot merge factions at any point during the map if either faction is on F-Top or will get placed on F-Top by doing so Punishment: Disqualified from 1 week of payout and removal of merged value. Note: You can merge if the F-Top brought from the meeting faction is removed by a senior staff member. 6. Abusing bugs and/or exploiting plugins Punishment: Punishments for abusing bugs and/or exploiting plugins will be determined by the strike team on the severity for it. Punishments will be ranged from player bans to potential faction strikes. Note: Players almost always know when they are abusing a bug and/or exploiting plugins so if the staff team determine that there was viable information, such as a staff member saying it in chat, an announcement in discord, a message to the player and/or his faction leader and knowledge that the players knew they were abusing a bug there will be a punishment issued. Below is an example of Truthy abusing a faction fly bug. He is currently in my land with my perms set correctly and he is able to fly (not just because of his perms). Anything that is remotely similar to this will be punished. 7. DDosing/Doxing Punishment: If you are caught in possession of a booter/stresser or a database/ips of anything, you will be permanently blacklisted from the network. 8. Insiding is NOT ALLOWED for this map. Insiders will be banned. 9. For every 7 permanent bans a faction acquires, they will be given a faction strike. Punishment: The faction will be given a strike for every 7 bans they receive. Note: The bans that qualify for this are certainly most of our bans on Daegonner so be wary. In certain cases, bans are required to be added to another faction if the faction was coinciding with them. YT Vid - Click here for why it's acceptable to add bans to factions. 10. Leeching, teaming and interfering with a raid is not allowed Punishment: 1 day ban to the player(s) breaking the rule. If there are 1 or more unrelated faction members in full diamond armor fighting and preventing you from raiding/defend, the unrelated faction will be striked and the raid will be stopped and rolled back. If the unrelated faction was teleported in by one of the two factions, a strike will be issued to that faction. Note: Interfering with a raid is defined as; being in player distance near any of the active cannons boxes or any of the base walls.There should be absolutely no tnt fired in the areas except coming from the offending and defending factions. IF you get tp’ed in by someone in an attempt for them to get you banned, immediately type in public chat stating so and a time stamp in case you get reported, otherwise you will be banned. If there is no aggression from the unrelated faction, there will not be any punishment. You are not allowed to go into the base if your faction has not breached the base. There are no exceptions for being inside the base if another faction is attempting to raid them. If you found a hole you have to make sure no one is shooting before you enter. Players are not allowed to leave their faction and join another faction to help defend or raid. If a raiding faction shoots through a unrelated factions cannon box, the unrelated faction cannot patch their cannon box while the raid is active. This will be considered as interfering with a raid..
