30 chunks
Cannon Speed limit: 3 seconds


General Raiding

  • Reversing is ALLOWED.
  • Redstone Checkboxes are NOT ALLOWED.
  • Cannons that are made or used to intentionally lag the server are NOT ALLOWED.
  • Cannons that shoot on or past world border are NOT ALLOWED.
  • Any defenses to do with redstone. Including pistons pushing blocks from behind an enclosed box is NOT ALLOWED
  • Factions may only remove their spawners while being raided by mining them and paying the tax. Using any other method to avoid this tax is NOT ALLOWED.
  • Printer, stacker or gen patching whilst being raided is NOT ALLOWED.
  • You must wait 10 minutes from the last shot before you’re ALLOWED to patch with gen buckets or printer. This rule applies for cannon boxes as well as bases.
  • You must wait 1 hour after a faction last shot at a base to attempt that base.
  • 1 stackers do not need to abide by the 3-second rule, they can be as fast as you want.
Cannon Limits
  • Automatic cannons are ALLOWED for Y:10 and below. Any higher will be subject to punishment
    1. This means the barrel must be below Y:10 and the cannon must stack a maximum of 10 sand or below.
  • Pre-stacked sand is ALLOWED.
  • A cannon may not have 3 or more sand comps (You may have two).
  • You can not have a cannon that shoots through more than 1 wall or reverse layer per button press. (1 wall per button press is ALLOWED but two is NOT ALLOWED).
  • Cannons that are “exploit” cannons must exploit a base issue and not a server side issue. Subject to interpretation by higher staff.
  • Roof cannons are NOT ALLOWED unless it exploits a player made issue. For example, a roof built at the wrong Y level. Roof cannons are described as any cannon that shoots TNT and/or sand at or above Y:255.
  • You cannot use multiple cannons to raid a base unless they are used for different functions. For example (one stacker with a reverse nuke behind is ALLOWED, however, a 200 stacker behind another 200 stackers is NOT ALLOWED).
    1. This applies to cannons on all parallel x, y, and z values owned by cohorting factions.
    2. Using a cannon to fire anywhere at a factions buffer counts as a raid attempt and requires the use of the same cannon.
  • Cannons need to abide by the 3-second rule implemented currently. This includes any button spammers attached to a cannon must at least be 3 seconds, regardless of whether or not you are holding down the button.
  • A faction can only use one cannon concurrently (one cannon firing at any one time).
  • No more than 1 faction is allowed to attempt one certain base at a time, whether this is firing at the actual base or raid claims of the attempting faction or counterclaims of the faction being raided.

Raid and Counterclaim Rules

  • The max amount of raid claims a factions box can be is based on how large the base you are raiding than adding 5 chunks to that. For example; There is a 4x4 base, you can have a 9x9 raid claim, and so on.
  • Raid claims must be used for the intent to raid the faction only. You are permitted to have one sole raid claim per base. Having multiple claims on a base will result in all but 1 being removed by a staff member. This is to free up space and allow more than a couple of factions to attempt to raid a base of interest.
  • Any raid claim 150 or more chunks away from the faction that you are raidings edge of the buffer does not count towards the 1 raid claim per base rule. You are free to have more than one provided they are 150 or more chunks away from that factions edge of the buffer.
  • Anti-raid claims must be at least 5 chunks away from your last claim of your buffer, and may only be the same size as the raid claim of the faction that is raiding you add 2 more chunks. For example: if the raid claim is 5x5 your anti raid claim can be 7x7. Anti raid claims are any claims that have an active counter cannon in it, outside of your buffer.
  • Counter cannons inside of your buffer are ALLOWED.
  • claims are NOT ALLOWED to be within a straight line of your base +5 chunks. (If you have a base that's 6 chunks wide and next to world border, you are NOT ALLOWED any claims within 11 chunks of the world border).
  • Only claims you are permitted to have outside your own base are anti-raid claims.
  • You are NOT ALLOWED to defend your buffer in the wilderness outside of your claim. This includes patching an enemy factions float.
  • You are NOT ALLOWED to printer, stacker or genbucket patch while being raided this includes defending anti-raid claims and raid claims with these methods.
  • You must wait 10 minutes after a shot has been fired to genbucket and printer patch.
  • You must wait 30 minutes after a shot has been fired to use the stacker feature.
  • You are only ALLOWED to fire at a cannon or base from one side at any one given time
  • Shooting from behind at a cannon box is NOT ALLOWED, neither is floating behind a cannon box.
  • You are NOT ALLOWED to claim your float outside of your raid claim.

Corner Rules

  • Whoever claims the actual corner, will get the corner. All you need is one claim in the physical corner. You can then do /f claim corner.
  • Your faction may only have 1 corner at a time.
  • Cheating to get a corner will result in an unclaim.

Base & Buffer Rules

  • The max amount of buffer a faction is allowed to have is 30 chunks in each direction starting from the base wall. If you’re found to have a buffer exceeding this limit those illegal chunks will be unclaimed.
  • There must be a 50 chunk gap in between the end of a faction’s buffer for their base and a neighboring base. This excludes your own faction having 2 bases next to each other which is NOT ALLOWED.
  • Boxes along the corner of the walls don’t count as part of the main base. Any boxes in the buffer don’t count as a base, regardless if they have value or not.
  • Redstone checkboxes are NOT ALLOWED, doing so will result in world edited out and possible punishment to whoever created it.
  • Regens are NOT ALLOWED and do not work.
  • Gap bases or cannon boxes are NOT ALLOWED.
  • You must use the same base for the entirety of the map
  • You cannot make a new base each week after payout
