Dox Threats / DDoS Threats / SWAT threats:
If you witness a player put someone's information in public chat you are allowed to ban that player. If a player reports a screenshot to you-you must get an admin or senior mod to verify that the player did indeed threaten that in private messages. If you do deal with a player who has made threats or commit the offense to let a manager or factions administrator know ASAP. This is so that player can go under investigation to see what faction he was a part of, and to issue possible faction strikes. Any sort of joking with malicious intentions about this matter is punishable.
Telling someone to kill themselves, or saying kys in messages or in public chat is strictly not allowed. If a player comes to you with a chat report of death threats in private messages get an admin to verify it with core inspect.

FACTIONS RULES (Additional to Global) - THESE RULES APPLY ON FACTION REALMS
All of your spawners must be placed within your main base (singular, meaning they all have to be in the 1 location). What defines an actual “base” is one that has at least 100 walls on either side and/or sides depending on where your base is located. For example Middle of the map (4 sides), World Border (3 sides) and Corner (2 sides). They must all be placed 12 hours before the payout screenshot is taken. You may not mine your spawners for that period or add additional spawners. The only way to change the outcome of faction top values is to attempt to raid other factions value, which therefore will boost your position on faction top as there value goes down. Any violations of these rules will result in a disqualification for that week’s payout. For example Creeper Egging or TnT’ing spawners to bypass the 8 hour period, Hiding value in multiple bases or having your spawners in Wilderness and claiming 10 minutes before Payout.
Cobwebs at KOTH:
Cobwebs are not allowed to be used at KOTH
Nether Portal Trapping:
Trapping players in a nether portal is not permitted.
If you’re found to be using a cobble monster anywhere on the server you will be punished accordingly.
Under no circumstances should two or more factions be participating in the same active raid. This includes being on walls and watching while a faction raids, pvping and attempting to stop the defending faction from patching or defending, or using any cannon or TnT of your own on the defending base while another faction is attempting to raid them. This includes all cannon tech, except basic 1 stackers. You may not be a part of the raid at all and failure to abide by these rules may result in a possible rollback of the raid, faction strikes, and player punishments. If a faction is caught spectating or interfering with the raid actively going on, staff have the right to teleport said players away from the raid and back to spawn as a first warning.
- There must be a 1-hour cooldown between the last shot a faction fires, and the first shot a second faction fires on a base. This is to give the defenders somewhat of a chance to prepare for the second raid.
- You may not interfere with the attacking faction. First one to begin raiding may not be victims to interference in any way (Attempting to defend themselves, killing the opposing faction or attempting there cannon box).
- You’re not allowed to ally in any forms of PvP with another faction. Such as WarZone, KoTHS, Conquest, and Castle
Leaching is also not allowed and if an admin deems you imposed and took from a raid when you shouldn't have you will serve a punishment. This includes after a faction has been raided only that faction that was the initial one raiding is allowed to loot and take value from the raided factions base. You have to wait until the faction raiding leaves the base that was raided, then the one-hour cooldown still applies and you must wait until your faction can start raiding that same faction.
Any use of raid detectors by a 3rd party software, or in-game detection methods are not allowed.
Insiding and Betraying:
Insiding is classed under taking value from your faction, taking items, or tp’ing members into your base. Betraying is classed under examples of teleporting enemies into cannon boxes or bases, giving factions information about your base and/or online times, or unclaiming warzone traps. We are punishing for members of a faction taking value from a factions faction top value in the form of blowing them up or mining them. We are also punishing players who teleport enemy factions into your factions main faction base. Players betraying their faction by any means that does not affect their faction top value is the leaders problem to deal with. Any value obtained from a raid as a faction, all of the value from that raid must be given back to the faction. Regardless of whether there are items that haven’t entered the territory of that faction, but are still regarded as being of value to the faction.
Blowing up your Spawners:
Blowing up your spawners through either TnT, Creeper Eggs or Semtex to bypass the tax of mining them is not allowed. If you’re faction is found to have done this to all of your spawners they will be punished accordingly.
Using printer doing Daily Challenges:
Using printer while doing a daily challenge that involves placing or destroying blocks or items is not allowed.
Blocking up Spawners:
Using any type of block or item to block and/or cover your spawners so they’re unable to be creeper egged or blown up by TnT. This includes placing spawners in any unattainable location such as world border.
You are allowed to merge factions, but you cannot merge the faction top value between them. If you merge with faction top value it will all get taken away. All faction top value is to be destroyed if you merge. If a faction is wanted to merge with another a Manager or higher need’s to present to overlook the specifics of the merge. If a faction has gotten a surplus amount of spawners from crates, they are allowed to take them with them but require management to go through and validate it. Some examples of merging would be: combining faction value (Spawners, Money or Grinders [Sugarcane, Cactus, Blaze, Endermen), unclaiming certain grinders or bases so another faction can claim and anything that is given to you so that either both or one faction plans to overtake another faction.
Schematica, Gen Bucket and Stacker Trapping:
Using schematica printer to quickly trap someone whilst playing. Gen Buckets and Stacker also apply.
Patching Walls with Printer, Gen Buckets or Patcher whilst being raided:
Patching your walls while being raided with printer or gen buckets is strictly against the rules as it provides too much of an advantage for the defending faction. Disclaimer, patching walls with printer or genbuckets while you aren’t getting raided is ALLOWED.
Any use of an auto clicker is strictly forbidden on factions for any reason. This includes software and macros affiliated with your mouse or modifying your mouse in any way.
Patching in Wilderness while being raided:
Players patching or placing walls in the wilderness outside of their base will be punished.
Abusing Kill Streaks/ Bounties
Players caught abusing these new features in any way for their own self-gain and to get a general advantage over the people getting their's legit will be banned for doing so.
