BattlePVP Faction Rules These are the faction rules and are subject to change at any time, even mid-map. If a staff member feels players are attempting to bypass or exploit obvious rules that aren’t stated below, they will issue a punishment deemed appropriate for the offense. Make sure to report players if you see them breaking any sort of rules stated below. Please also read our Server Rules here. ─── Strike System Strike #1 - Warning Strike #2 - 15% FTOP Value Removal Strike #4 - 30% FTOP Value Removal Strike #6 - 50% FTOP Value Removal Strike #8 - 75% FTOP Value Removal Strike #10 - Disband and All Value Removed ─── Player Bans Players that are banned from rule infringements of any kind will count towards faction bans, this includes temporary bans.
