Official Faction Rules


Introduction

By playing on the BlazeVortex Network, you automatically agree to these rules and as a player it is your responsibility to stay up to date with them. 

These rules are subject to change at any point in the map and will be announced in the #Changelog channel within our discord.
Senior staff may perform punishments based on their points of view.

Create a ticket if they need clarification on one of our rules.



Strike System

Senior Staff are the only ones that can give out strikes.
Value is taken from the Faction Top placement calculations during payouts and no physical value is taken.

3 Faction Strikes - 10% Value Removed

6 Faction Strikes - 25% Value Removed

9 Faction Strikes - 50% Value Removed

12 Faction Strikes - 75% Value Removed

15 Faction Strikes - 100% Value Removed + Disqualified from that week’s payout.
(All involved players will be temporarily banned for the remainder of the map).


Faction Bans


Faction points are stackable, e.g., once you reach 3 bans, you will receive 3 points. 
Once you reach 5 bans, you will receive another 3 upon your previous punishments.

3 Faction Bans - 3 Strike Points
5 Faction Bans - 3 Strike Points


Any attempt to bypass these rules will result in the same punishment.
