OFFICIAL FACTION RULES
Last Update: August 15th, 2020



Faction Strikes:

1st Strike Faction Warning
2nd Strike -15% Faction Value at Payout
3rd Strike -25% Faction Value at Payout
4th Strike -50% Faction Value at Payout
5th Strike Disqualification from Payouts

***NOTE***
If there are 3 bans within your Faction, you will receive 1 faction strike. These bans consist of Hacking, Exploiting, Threats, Leaking Info, and/or Toxicity Blacklist. (Removal from our Network).
These bans will only count against the Faction if the players punished are a part of the faction at the time the evidence is recorded.
If we feel you have broken any rules resulting in a ban that was used in the intention of gaining an Advantage over the Factions Server, we reserve the right to count that against your faction as 1 ban.



| FACTIONS RULES |


DISCLAIMER: Punishments will be Directed at the Faction member who Broke the Rule(s). If logs are expired/unobtainable, the punishment will be given to the Faction Leader.
Breaking a rule with an Alternate Account will result in a punishment for the Main Account's faction if a rule above is broken.
Admins reserve the right to change these rules at any time.
Admins reserve the right to punish Factions for something which isn't included in the Rules if they deem it as necessary.
By playing on the server you agree to these Rules and confirm you have read them.



Alt Factions
Using an Alt Account to Create another Faction, even if it is just to save a name, is NOT permitted. You're NOT allowed to use an alternative account to join a different faction either. If there is a joint operation of multiple factions within the Alt Faction, all Factions will be punished. Using alternative accounts in order to inside a faction is NOT allowed IF the main account is in/affiliated to a different faction before doing the act. Admins reserve the right to disband the alt faction based on the circumstances.​
First Offense – Faction Warning (Main Faction)​
Continued Offenses – Faction Strike to the Main Faction​


1 Corner per faction
A Faction is allowed to Claim 1 Corner ONLY. The corner belongs to the faction who has claimed the actual corner chunk. Admins won't give you the corner if you have claimed a different chunk within the corner buffer before anyone else claimed the actual corner chunk.​
First Offense – Land Unclaimed​
Continued Offenses – Land Unclaimed & Faction Strike​


SpawnerChunks & Faction Shield Abuse
You are allowed to mark chunks of your base as spawner chunks to place spawners. You may not mark raid claims as spawnerchunks to make the cannon unraidable through the use of our shield mechanic. You may not mark any chunk as a spawnerchunk in a 24 chunks radius of a raid claim, defensive counter cannons claims excluded. The raided base will be rolled back. Marking secondary bases/vaults as Spawnerchunks could result in a punishment accordingly to the no hiding rule.
A Faction isn't allowed to trigger another Faction's Raiding System to lock the raid without an actual intent of raiding the base. In this case, the defending Faction might be punished as well if it is found guilty of coordinating/approving the fake raiding attempt.​
Setting up the shield while being raided to stop the raid isn't allowed and will result in a punishment. If a raid starts the defending Faction isn't allowed to set up their shield until the raid is officially over. You may set up the shield before a raid starts or after the raid finishes.​

First Offense – Unlcaim of Land Bypassing the Limit​
Continued Offenses – All Raid Claim Unclaimed & Faction Strike​

Cannoning Speed | 4-Second Minimum
Cannons can be fired at different rates by adjusting repeaters. We require the speed from the time one wall falls to the time the following one falls to be a 4-second gap. Not meeting this requirement will result in a punishment. Here is a cheat-sheet on different speeds and how to adjust your clocks to the respected minimum:​


| Cannon Timers are found connected to the button to initiate power to the cannon. |
Each repeater is equivalent to 1 Tick (0.1 Second).​
A Repeater has 4 Speeds; each speed Increases the Tick and the Second.​
> Tick 1 = 0.1 Second​
> Tick 2 = 0.2 Seconds​
> Tick 3 = 0.3 Seconds​
> Tick 4 = 0.4 Seconds​
The MINIMUM requirement to create a Cannon is a 4 Second Delay.​
> MIN. Repeaters on 1 Tick = 40 Repeaters​
> MIN. Repeaters on 2 Ticks = 20 Repeaters​
> MIN. Repeaters on 3 Ticks = 14 Repeaters​
(OR: 13 Repeaters on 3 Ticks and 1 Repeater on 1 Tick)
> MIN. Repeaters on 4 Ticks = 10 Repeaters​
These can all be interchangeable if their time limit is a minimum of 4 Seconds.​
We will also allow pulse clocks, clocks with pistons, but the timer must still be a minimum of 4 Seconds between shots.​



First Offense – Cannon Removed & Faction Strike​
Continued Offenses – Cannon Removed & Faction Strike & 1d Ban​
*Schematica/Printer: See Allowed/Disallowed Modifications
*Alt Abuse Punishment: Rule #24 of Server Rules

Decisions made by staff members are final. Do not argue with a punishment that has been made by one the staff at FadeCloud. If you feel that one of our Staff members have falsely punished you, please create a ban appeal and if you feel it is needed, a staff report. Any issues or concerns, private message one of the staff members in the administrator team.​
