    Hi guys,
    Just a short forum post to highlight some changes we've made to rules in the past few days.

    The first thing I wanted to talk about is the increase in glitching into bases using various methods. As Jack talked about in a previous post, this is to do with how Minecraft is coded rather than an issue on our end. Having said that, we have taken measures to minimise this such as disabling enderpearls in claimed land and disabling creeper damage on obsidian. Due to this, anyone caught using any method of glitching into bases will be permanently banned from the network.

    Similarly, we have also seen an increase in those using WorldDownloader in inappropriate ways; we initially allowed this mod to be used to download your bases to single player etc., though have seen it used as an xray-like tool to assist in raiding. Due to this, we have decided that World Downloader is no longer an allowed mod and those found using it will be banned in a manner similar to x-ray - 30 days on a first offence.

    It has also been decided that abusing the help offered by staff members is against the rules. If you ask a helper for assistance and TP trap/slit their throat, don't be surprised if you're hit with a ban. By all means, trap them when you've "found a big raid, tp", but not when you tell them you need help. Nobody likes a scumbag. Don't waste staff time!

    Any questions, I'll do my best to answer!
    Thanks
    Joe

    EDIT:
    I'm aware this is gonna make some folks salty, but the forums ladder has been changed so that it is now number of likes required to rank up and not number of posts. You gotta work a lot harder than just spamming every thread in sight to become appreciated! ;)

Using a staff's job to help by asking for help and tp trapping them



    Nice Job!
    :)

    I agree with everything except the world download part. On other servers, world download has always been a useful tool in finding weak points in other factions bases in order to raid them. You can't exactly download the entire world and gamemode 3 the floor to find unclaimed bases, which is the main reason people x-ray. Also, without world download, people won't know if a base is worth raiding. I see where you're coming from but people aren't gonna spend time out of their day if they keep spending hours raiding only to get inside to find an empty obsidian box. If people don't know if a base is worth trying to raid, they will only resort to using glitches to get in quickly if there's a chance that inside the base there will be nothing.

    Well yeh it lets you see inside bases. You can't exactly run across the whole map, download it and look for bases in single player.

    So will you need to break 2 blocks of a base wall to be able to fit through if ender pearls are disabled?

    Wait why would world download be a banned mod. What if we found a base already and want to see what's in side or line up a cannon with a certain area in the base?
