Raiding rules for Factions

Important information.

  • This document goes over the Official & Regulated BlazeVortex factions rules.
  • Rules may change at any time without notice. You are responsible for keeping up-to-date with these. 
  • Keep in mind that rules may change at any time and you are responsible for keeping up-to-date with these. 
  • If you have any questions, you should contact our staff team on our Discord for further clarification rules. 
  • Remember, if you’re unsure if you are allowed to do something, ALWAYS ask first.

Disciplinary action:
If you break any of the raiding rules, punishments will be handed out. 

  • Formal Faction Strike (Warning).
  • Final Faction Strike (Warning).
  • 50% Spawner Value Reduction removal from the entire faction. 
  • The faction will be removed for the entire season

Rule 1:
B-Claiming is not permitted within the first week of the season.
Punishment:
The faction doing this within the grace period will be asked to remove the claims. If refusing to do so,  they will be given a faction strike and senior staff will remove it for them.

Additional information:
B-Claims is seen as claims around somebody’s base preventing them from building their base, etc.


Rule 2:
Insiding is not permitted under any circumstances.
Punishment:
The player insiding his faction will be banned for the rest of the season.

Additional information

  • A faction is seen as a team consisting of 2 or more players, who work together to achieve a goal. You are not allowed to betray your faction.
  • Insiding can be seen as:
    • Teleporting other people in the base;
    • Selling large quantities of loot from the faction and stealing the spawners from the faction;
    • Offering your own factions services and goods to another without permission.
    •  For example, if a faction got raided and upon the raid, someone logged out or /sethome in the base could be seen as insiding if the base was repaired and used afterward.
  • When a faction-member adds spawners to the faction claims, they are adding it into their own registered faction. Those spawners are now the property of the faction and not the player specifically. (If you grind spawners in an unclaimed area so you can call those yours they are still from the faction.) They’ll only belong to you when you are a solo faction.


Rule 3:
You may not merge factions after the first week of the season/grace period ends if both factions are on F-Top or will get placed on F-Top by doing this.
Punishment:
The faction doing this without telling us will be disbanded. (seen as giving other factions wealth)

Additional information: 

  • You are able to merge after grace if the F-TOP brought from the meeting factions is removed by a staff member


Rule 4:
A faction can only claim a single corner in the entire map. (end and nether also count as a corner for the entire map)!
Punishment:
The faction will be asked to remove all corner claims except for one. If refusing to do so, they will be given a faction strike and senior staff will remove it for them.

Additional information:
We implemented this for everyone to have a chance of a corner claim.


Rule 5:
Patching walls with printer or gen buckets are not allowed during a raid.
Punishment:
The faction doing this will be temp-banned for 2 days and a faction strike will be given.

Additional information: 

  • This includes if TNT is being shot at your base, counter cannon, raid claim and/or while in lockdown. Building a cannon is not considered as an active raid.


Rule 6:
Covering up your spawners in blocks or using any other method to prevent factions from getting your spawners are not allowed.
Punishment:
The faction who did this will be given a faction strike and the spawners will be given to the raiding faction.

Additional information: 

  • Spawners below a top/rood layer are not seen as an active mob-grinder. If you want to make a mob-grinder, it has to be bigger than 16x16 for any spawner/mob-grinder excluding a blaze farm it can be smaller but not too small. If the spawners are blocked up while being raided and/or TNT is being shot at your base. If the faction reaches the mob-grinder/spawner room with blocked spawners then all the spawners will be given to the raiding faction.
  • All placed spawners must be inside one claimed base.
  • Spawners in an unclaimed base are not allowed!
  • Emerald blocks are also seen as spawners since they count as F-TOP value and all above information also applies that way.
  • Mining spawners while being raided is also not allowed!

Rule 7:
You can only have 4 chunks of walls around your cannon box.
Punishment:
Having more then 4 chunks around will be asked to remove if not within the time a faction strike will be given.
