DecimatePvP Cannoning and Claim Rules

Faction Warnings
Factions are responsible for making sure they are following the rules. Only illegal cannons and hiding value during a no hiding value map will result in a faction strike. Each strike will result in a loss of FTOP payout. For example, If I have 1 faction strike, 25% of my ftop payout will be removed. After the first strike, the percent will increase.

1st Warning: 25% removed from payout.
2nd Warning: 50% removed from payout.
3rd Warning: 75% removed from payout.
4th Warning: Disqualification from that week’s ftop.​

Please note that a faction’s warnings reset every map.​

TNT Disable
TNT will be disabled at Y:257+. It is advised you build your bases the best you can to world limit, as we will no longer be helping you if your base gets cannoned as it is not our fault for mistakes made during base building.

Genbuckets/Printer During an Active Raid
You may not patch during a raid with genbuckets or printer. This also applies to cannon boxes. The cannon must be destroyed and the pvp must have stopped for 20 minutes. Anyone caught patching during a raid with genbuckets or printer will face a ban.

You may not merge once a map has started. If both factions quit the map then you can merge and start on the next map, however it is not allowed once a map has begun. If you are caught merging you automatically lose 25% of payout if you place for the whole map.

No Hiding Value Maps
Every so often we host a map that is labeled a no hiding value map. This means that from the time TNT enables, till the end of the map, all your factions spawners must stay placed and claimed, you may not mine during a raid. If you get split, you take the hit.

  • All of your spawners need to be claimed in your MAIN base.
  • You may not mine spawners during a raid.
  • You may not create any vaults that contain value (spawners) outside of your base.
  • The maximum amount of money allowed in your faction balance is $500 million.
  • You may not hide more than $100 million in your ender chest or pvs (this includes your alts)

Punishment: Faction Warning.​

  • Automatic cannons are only allowed under Y:50.
    • Any cannon that shoots by itself without any player input is classified as an auto.
    • This means that the barrel must be below Y:50.
    • You may not float a cannon built below Y: 50 to shoot higher in an attempt to bypass the speed limit or shoot full auto above Y: 50
  • Cannons must not exceed 3,000 dispensers.
  • Cannons above Y: 50 may not shoot faster than 2 seconds.
  • Cannons must not shoot more than one shot per button press.
  • Cannons that intentionally lag the server is not allowed.
  • Roof cannons are not allowed.
    • Cannons that shoot tnt and/or sand above 255 is classified as a roof cannon.
    • If a base is built incorrectly (such as the roof being 254), we will not rollback the base and the cannon will be deemed legal.
  • Wall removers are not allowed.
  • You may Left/Right shoot ONLY if you have already breached the base.
  • You may only have ONE cannon per raid claim and counter raid claim.
  • Two walls one shot cannons are not allowed.
Punishment: 7 day ban and Faction Warning.
(The player who built the cannon will be banned)​

Base Claims
  • Each faction may only have ONE corner claim.
    • Any other corner claims we will ask to be removed. If not, a Senior Mod+ will unclaim it.
    • This also applies to any alt factions.
  • The maximum size of a buffer is 20 chunks.
    • The number of chunks starting from your base walls must be 20 or less. Any excessive claims will be asked to remove or a Senior Mod+ will unclaim it.
  • The minimum amount of claims between another base is 30.
    • This is so players can’t use alt factions to protect their own base.
  • You cannot have more than a 1 chunk gap between your base walls and all surrounding walls. This means between walls, also.
    • This means that you must not have more than a chunk gap between your base walls and any other walls.
  • Counter cannon claims may not line up with your base.
  • You may make counter raid claims inside of your base walls but it must not be in line of the base.
  • “Bitch claims” are not allowed during grace period.
    • Any bitch claims found will be asked to remove or be unclaimed by a Senior Mod+.
    • Bitch claims are allowed AFTER grace period.
Punishment: Your faction will be asked to fix the claims.​

Raid Claims
  • The maximum size of raid claims is 10 x 10.
    • Any faction with a bigger claim will be asked to remove it, if not, a Senior Mod+ will unclaim it.
  • You may only have one raid claim per base.
    • This also includes any cactus farms. So if a faction has a cactus farm inside of their base walls, you may only use one raid claim.
  • You may not use alt factions claims to protect your base.
  • You may only have ONE cannon per raid claim.
  • Anti-raid claims may not line up with your base but you may make them in your base walls.
  • You may have a maximum of 2 Anti-raid claims in your walls.
  • The max size of a trap claim is 10x10
Punishment: The player who claimed the land will be warned. If it happens again, they will receive a 3 day ban.​

  • Regeneration and automatic walls are not allowed.
  • Printer patching or using genbuckets to patch during an active raid is not allowed.
    • This also applies to the faction raiding, you may not use printer or genbuckets to patch your cannon box.
    • The cannon must be destroyed and pvp must be stopped for 20 minutes before you can start patching.
  • “Unraidable” defenses are not allowed.
    • This includes the use of mini cobblestone walls, banners, fences, enchantment tables, iron bars, anvils, cobwebs, and signs.
  • You may not use redstone on/inside of base walls.
    • This includes any redstone or carpet that is placed in/on base walls.
    • If found, a Senior Mod will ask a faction member to remove it. If not, the player who placed the redstone/carpet will be banned and the items will be removed.
  • You may not block up your spawners with obsidian.
    • This also includes anything that makes it so players cannot creeper egg your spawners.
    • You may lava spawners as lava doesn’t burn them.
    • You are allowed to water spawners as water doesn't protect them.
  • You may not blow up your spawners.
    • This includes using creeper eggs or TNT to blow up your spawners to evade the spawner tax.
  • You are not allowed to use alts to afk your walls.
    • This is to help prevent any use of raid alerts.
    • Any players or alts found afking walls will first be kicked and/or punished if it seems to be a problem.
  • Any form of tnt detectors, player detectors, or raid alerts are not allowed and will result in a faction warning and other punishments if applicable.
Punishment: 7 day ban.

Please note that finding loopholes and/or finding errors in the rules and abusing them will result in a punishment. If you found any errors in the cannoning rules please contact an Admin.​
