Read Me Faction Rules

Not open for further replies.
All of the rules below are comprehensible and detailed. If you decide to be sly and try to bypass any of the rules below your faction will be immediately punished depending on the situation. A faction may receive a strike for any of the following regulations below.
If you are having trouble interpreting these regulations please seek support on our Discord!

Strike Guidelines:
  • First strike (Warning)​
  • Second strike (10% spawner value decrease)​
  • Third strike (25% spawner value decrease)​
  • Fourth strike (50% spawner value decrease)​
  • Fifth strike (100% spawner value decrease)​
You may appeal a faction strike by contacting a Manager/Owner in the discord. We reserve the right to forcefully disband any faction found in serious violations of our rules. If a forceful faction disband occurs all players in that faction will have their balances/player vaults reset. If a player/faction has broken factions rules. It must be brought up to us within 24hrs or it may not be dealt with.

Common Sense Rule:
  • If you try to bypass the rules with small technicalities, you will most likely be punished. The rule broken is determined by the staff member and they have the last word.
  • Any duping or use of serious glitches will result in automatic disqualification and disbanding.
Raid Detectors:
  • Using raid detectors/TNT detectors is prohibited and will result in a strike.
ALT Factions:
  • Making alt factions in order to claim multiple FTop rewards is against the rules and will result in disqualification from FTOP rewards.
  • ALT Factions or ALT accounts may not be used to evade any of these rules.
  • You may not put ALT Accounts on your walls
  • You are only allowed to merge factions if authorized by management.
  • All FTop value is to be destroyed from the faction that is merging.
  • If TNT gained illegally from the merging faction is used to raid a base/cannon a rollback may occur.
  • If a faction has received a surplus amount of spawners from crates, they are allowed to take them with them, please ask a manager to validate this move.
  • You are not allowed to hide value, all value must be placed when grace ends.
  • You cannot claim many random chunks and place value in each of them in an attempt to spread out your f-top value all over the world. 85% of your faction wealth should be placed in one claimed base throughout the map. If you decide to change bases throughout the season, the previous base should be unclaimed.
Faction Names:
  • During SOTW a senior staff member (depending on the circumstances) may forcefully give a faction their rightful name if it's taken.
  • A faction may only claim a single corner regardless of which world it is claimed in, extras will be removed and repeat offenses will result in the faction being punished.
Bitch claiming:
  • Bitch claiming is not allowed during the grace period.
  • Useless claims will not be allowed during the entire map.
Blacklisted Players:
  • For every blacklisted player in your faction or directly related to your faction, two faction strikes will be issued.
  • This also includes a player being caught blacklist evading.
  • Insiding is not permitted; if a player is caught insiding they will be banned and a rollback of value will occur.
  • When a player adds spawners or items to a base or faction claim they belong to the faction and not the player.
  • When a faction raids a base all the spawners and wealth from the breached boxes belong to the faction. A faction member refusing to give to the faction will be considered insiding.
  • The faction leader must reasonably decide whether a player is insiding before any action is taken.
  • The senior staff team may consider other activities as insiding that are not listed here. As-well as deciding not to punish a player for taking very little wealth from a faction or having a reason to take it.
  • Only actions done in-game can be considered insiding although evidence from discord or other places may be taken into consideration.
Leeching / Raid Interfering:
  • If a faction is caught interfering with a raid or leeching a faction strike will be issued. A rollback may occur when necessary.
  • If there is one or more unrelated faction members fighting/preventing you from raiding/defending the unrelated faction will be punished. The raid will be stopped and rolled back if a senior staff team determined that it had a significant impact and the unrelated faction was not teleported in by the raiding/defending faction.
  • There is no tolerance for ally/truce raiding. If you are found truce raiding both cannons will immediately be world edited, and the defending faction will be set on grace.
  • You are not allowed to interfere with raids in ANY way, you are not allowed to help counter, or help raid in ANY way.
  • You are not allowed to enter a base that your faction has not breached. Any wealth that was taken by an unrelated faction will be removed and given to the raiding faction.
