DecimatePvP Cannoning / Defenses Rules Factions are responsible for making sure they are following the rules. Multiple punishments will result in a faction strike. Faction strikes can lead to disqualification from the weeks Ftop, or disband depending on severity. 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. You may not patch during a raid with genbuckets. 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 will face a 3 day ban to start with and then 7 days then doubles from there. Cannons: Autocannons are allowed under Y:50. Any cannon that shoots by itself with out player input is classified as a auto. Cannons must not exceed 3,000 Dispensers. Cannons must not shoot faster than 2 seconds above Y:50. Cannons must not shoot more than 2 shots per button press. Cannons that intentionally lag the server are not allowed. Roof Cannons are not allowed. Wall removers are not allowed. You may Left/Right shoot only if you have already breached the main base. Only one cannon is allowed in the same cannon box per raid claim and since you can only have one raid claim per base, means only one cannon. It is heavily advised you build your walls to build limit and then water between your walls and not your roof. Have your walls built to world limit, water walls and between them. You may not shoot above 255 at all, 255 is the highest you may shoot anything else is punishable and will be deemed a roof cannon. Cannons may not shoot more than twice per button push. 1st Offence: 3 day ban and Faction Strike 2nd Offence: 7 day ban and Faction Strike 3rd Offence: 14 day ban and Faction Strike. (The player who built the cannon will be the one punished)Base Claims: Each faction can only have one corner claim at a time. Alt factions may only claim one also. Any faction caught with more than one corner will be asked to remove it or a Sr. Mod+ will unclaim it. Max Buffer Size of 20 Chunks. The number of chunks starting from your base walls must be 20 or less. We will ask you to remove the excessive claims or they will be removed by a Sr. Mod+. There must be 20 chunks between your base claims and another base. This is so you cannot use an alt faction to protect your own base with. You cannot have more than a 1 chunk gap between your base walls and all surronding walls. Meaning there cannot be a chunk gap between any walls. This is to ensure that everyone has a fair chance at raiding each other. Counter Cannon Claims must not line up your base. You are only allowed to make a counter cannon claim if it doesn’t line up with your base walls. “Bitch Claims” are not allowed during Grace Period. Whoever owns the claim against the border will receive the corner. You may use “bitch claims” after TNT has enabled. 1st Offence: Faction Strike 2nd Offence: Faction Strike 3rd Offence: Faction StrikeRaid Claims: Maximum Raid Claim sizes must be 10 chunks x 10 chunks. 10x10 is the maximum size, you can have anything under this of course but it may not go over it. Any faction with a bigger raid claim will be warned and asked to remove the excessive land. You May Only Have 1 Raid Claim Per Base This is to ensure that everyone has an equal chance to raid a faction. You may not make “fake” alt claims to protect your base. Defenses: Regen Walls and Automatic Walls Are Not Allowed Printer Patching / Using Genbuckets to Patch During a Raid is Not Allowed Anyone caught using printer to patch or using genbuckets to regen walls during a raid will be banned for the appropriate amount of time listed below. You may not use a genbucket at all during a raid. If you are being raided. “Unraidable” Defenses Are Not Allowed. This includes mini cobblestone walls, banners, fences, enchanting tables, iron bars, anvils, cobwebs, and signs. This also includes using enchantment tables to block up hoppers or other objects inside of a base. The Use of Redstone on/inside Base Walls is Not Allowed. This includes using redstone and/or carpet on base walls. If we find a redstone/carpet checkbox we will ask a faction member to remove it or ban the player who placed it. Blocking Spawners is Not Allowed This includes placing obsidian blocks or lava around spawners or anything that makes your spawners unceggable. You may not water your spawners , only lava since creeper eggs will blow through it. You may not blow up your spawners whether it be by TNT or creeper eggs, doing so will result in a ban. 1st Offense: 7 day ban and a faction strike 2nd Offense: 14 day ban and a faction strike 3rd Offense: 30 day ban and a faction strike Misc rules: Maps that are deemed no hiding value Every so often we host a map that is labled a no hiding value map. This means that from the time tnt enables, till 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. Those found guilty of hiding value that equals value to be determined by stafff in a chest or a vault that isn't claimed will result in a faction warning. Note that a few spawners doesn't count. If your faction is moving bases you need to inform an admin or the manager of such, you will be given a time limit to move, and your value must return to where it was when you started moving. You may hide during grace however. This also means you cannot store up money until payout day to buy spawners and place them then. If you're going to buy spawners, buy them and place them. Also you may not have numerous bases to spread out your value, it has to stay claimed and placed the whole map. Also you cannot hide banknotes in your echests or pv's. Allying and Teaming On maps that do not offer allies, you may not team, you may not ally. You may not raid together with your alt faction. Your main faction or alt faction is the only faction that may be there. Now note one or two players hanging out because they found it or whatever to watch, doesn't matter. Trying to find loopholes in rules and abusing it will also result in a faction warning.
