GotPvP Factions Rules These are the basic faction rules and are subject to change at any time without being notified. They will also be updated if any changes are made. Strike System On the rare occasion that a faction breaks a rule the following actions may be taken: COMING SOON General Faction Rules Note: (a) Whenever your faction has been issued a warning you will be expected to immediately stop and not to repeat whatever rule you’re breaking or the punishment may escalate. (b) You may not use allies, alts or players to attempt to bypass these rules. (c) A raid is deemed over after 15 minutes of no shooting, You and your faction or any other connection(s) are not allowed to stall others from raiding by lengthening the raid purposely. This will be determined by an admin+. 1. Insiding Factions Insiding will result in a ban. This is described as betraying your faction by unclaiming all, stealing spawners, mining spawners and/or stealing/removing F Top value, insiding is not limited to just these actions. A faction leader is the judge of your ban and ultimately decides if you should be banned or not if the proof is validated by higher staff members. (a) Insides do not count when you mistrust another faction with faction permissions and they abuse this trust or when chest loot is stolen. (b) If you are insided while being raided you will NOT be compensated. (c) You will only be compensated if the loot is found Punishment: The player who insided will be banned for the rest of the season, the faction is rolled back if loot is found. 2. Allying/Teaming/Leaching PvP teaming is allowed and there will be no set punishment for it, unless its two factions (that aren’t physically allied) teaming with one another against a third faction at a RAID. You may also not be present at a raid for any reason if you are not allied with the raiding faction or defending faction, or gain loot from it. Punishment: 3.
