    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.
    If a player purchases an unban, that does not reset the faction ban and if that player is banned again that then adds another ban towards the limit.

    What is considered raiding?
    Raiding

    A cannon shot placement above Y:10 will start a raid attempt.
    Any "Memeing" must stop once a raid has started.
    A raid is deemed over after 30 minutes from the final shot.
    Regardless of any Y level, any reverse hybrid cannons count as a raid attempt.
    Regardless of any Y level, breaching the main base wall starts a raid attempt.

    Cooldown

    Once a raid is over, the defending faction gets a 30 minute raid immunity timer.
    The defending faction cannot be raided during this time.

    Memeing

    Any cannon shot placement Y:10 or below will start a meme attempt.
    "Memeing" does not trigger any grace cooldown period nor does it have to adhere to it.
    If any raid attempts start (from your faction or other factions), "memeing" must stop.
    Failure to stop will count as 2 factions raiding at once and whoever is "memeing" will be punished.

    Raiding Rules

    #2.35
    Raid Claims

    Raid claims may only be a single 13x13 raid claim.

    You may not adjust / triangle outside of these raid claims. Adjusting is limited to your raid claim and adjust line.

    Cannons that shoot on or past the border are prohibited, meaning you cannot triangle off of the border or back stack off of the border.

    You may only claim 1 chunk in a straight line for adjusting purposes.

    A faction may only have a (1) raid claim on each side of another factions buffer.

    You may not build raiding cannons in wilderness.

    This is capped at a maximum of 2 raid claims on another faction, each must be on different sides of another factions buffer.

    PUNISHMENT

    Any claims that do not adhere to rules regarding raid claims, the faction will be given a verbal warning, if they fail to fix the claims within (Online: 10 minutes) (Offline: 6 hours) an administrator will forcefully remove them and the faction will be issued 1 faction strike.

    Walls In A Raid Claim

    You are only allowed a maximum of 25 walls, not including the main cannon box wall on each side of a cannon box.

    Anything that requires an additional shot to breach a box (Trap Wall) will count as a wall.
    Therefore if you have 23 walls with an additional 3 trap walls you will be exceeding the max amount of walls.

    You may not intentionally space out your walls so that you have a 2 block water gap to make a sort of "mini ocean" as these can be used to extend the amount of walls you can have while patching.

    You're not allowed to patch past the 25th wall. This is called extending a buffer and punishments will be handed out.

    PUNISHMENT

    If a faction has more than 25 walls on their cannon box, the faction will be given a verbal warning, if they fail to fix the walls within (Online: 30 minutes) (Offline: 6 hours) an administrator will forcefully remove them and the faction will be issued 1 faction strike.

    If the defending faction has their base damaged in the process of another faction attempting, the damages will be rolled back.

    #2.39 Raid Interference

    Leeching, pvping, aiding, or interfering with other factions raids are not allowed.

    Cannon boxes that are claimed by other factions and are in-front of the attacking factions, may not be defended. If your box is affecting the raiding / countering of either faction, you are deemed to be aiding another faction by interfering in the raid.

    PUNISHMENT

    The faction interfering will be asked to leave. If the faction does not cooperate the faction will receive 1 faction strike.

    #2.40 Switching Raid Claims

    Once a raid is started, the raid claim used to start that raid must be used throughout that entire raid, it cannot be switched.
