    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
    Each faction will begin the reset at 0/25 points. Each of the following rules have point values associated with them and each time your faction breaks a rule you get those points assigned to your faction. If you reach 25/25 points your faction will be disbanded.

    Disband: Faction disbanded, base world edited out and all known spawners removed from faction players pvs. They are prevented from winning that reset.

    Raid Starts: When tnt is fired from a cannon and hits the base. The tnt does not have to break a wall but it must be able to reach the base. Or if damage is done to any part of the base with ceggs, this does not include damage to the WALLS only the main base itself.

    Raid Ends: 15 minutes after the most recent “Begin” trigger. I.e. 15 minutes after the last shot was fired on the base.

    General Faction Rules

    (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) Any forms of ddosing/doxing will be dealt by the discretion of an admin.

    (d) ANY Form of abusing the Shield plugin will result in a a severe punishment, that be a faction disband, removed from payout etc etc.

    1. Insiding Factions

    Insiding will result in a PERMANENT 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. Spawners that you have purchased or gained before joining a faction, once placed cannot be taken back and will count as insiding. Note: You will NOT be refunded the spawners unless they can be traced and found.

    (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) It will be at the discretion of Jelly to reimburse the value depending on the circumstances where proof is VALID.

    Punishment: The player who insided will be banned permanently

    2. Allying/Teaming/Leaching

    5. Excessively Cheating/Ban Evading
    Any players caught CHEATING will receive a PERMANENT ban.

    Punishment: 3 point per player or 5 points per player if during a raid

    (a) If a substantial amount of players from a raiding faction are caught cheating during a raid, the raid claims will be removed and the defending base will be rolled back. However, instances involving both raiding and defending factions being caught with multiple players cheating, it will be at the discretion of an admin to handle the issue based on evidence provided.
