Factions Specific Rules
These rules apply specifically to Factions on the Skycade server.
Global rules can be found [Here]​

  • No F Fly Abuse
F Fly is only to be used for moving around your faction base, cannon, or traps. Chasing a player outside of your claims, flying to a cannon, or pvp advantages are not allowed. This is considered a Bug Abuse ban.

  • No Insiding
Insiding is defined as raiding a faction or ally that you are/have been part of, using homes set while part of the faction. You are allowed to turn against allies, however they must obviously know you have turned against them. ./f enemy must be applied and no homes owned while being allies may be used to raid the base. Any player knowingly benefiting from insiding will also be punished.

Any teleport into a base from a “random” player is also not allowed. It must be clearly known how the home or teleport was obtained. If the home or teleport was obtained through glitching, insiding, or similar then your faction will be punished. Every effort must be made to ensure the teleport is legit. “We didn’t know” is not an acceptable excuse when caught if no obvious effort has been made to ensure the legitimacy of the teleport. Your safest bet is to not accept raids from strangers unless you can see they’ve cannoned inside the base they’re allowing you to raid.

  • No Claim Camping
Do not repeatedly or purposefully go into faction claims to prevent them from being able to fly. You should only ever be in enemy claims to PvP, raid, download schematic, or building a cannon. Being fully geared for a fight and in enemy claims is allowed.

  • No B*tch Claiming
B*tch claiming is the act of using your factions claims to purposely block the expansion of another faction’s base. You must give factions room to build their base, so ensure your base is at least 25 chunks away from someone else’s if they’ve already started to claim / build. Anyone caught B*tch claiming may be punished and their claims will be removed. If building a cannon, you must leave 1 chunk of unclaimed land between the base and your cannon claim. You have 24 hours from the point of claiming to build and start firing your cannon, otherwise the chunks will be unclaimed by an admin. This exemption does not apply during grace period (the first week of the map) - no cannon boxes then because TNT is disabled. It is allowed to claim right against an already established faction, but not allowed to make a base immediately against it. There must be at least 10 chunks of unclaimed land between the faction claims of completed bases.

Example: If Faction A reaches the corner first and claims the surrounding 3 chunks, Faction B (knowing that Faction A has claims there and intends to build a base there) cannot claim immediately next to their 3 chunk claim because it is abundantly clear that Faction A wishes to make a base there.

  • Only Own One Corner
Factions may only own one corner. Holding a claim to sell or hold for allies is not allowed.

  • No Automatic Cannons
Cannons must be fired by the player each shot. All other cannons are allowed. For reference, all entities are removed above 255 and the current TNT limit is 10000 TNT/Sand per tick. Any cannons shooting more than that amount will not work, and any cannon firing above height limit will not work. The maximum number of walls allowed on any cannon box is 20. Any additional walls will be removed by an admin if reported.

Cannon claims may not be directly against the claims of the faction being raided, nor can the faction being raided claim directly against the faction performing the raid. This is to help prevent any potential F Fly abuse, as well as prevent cannon barrels from being blocked up.

Only one cannon is allowed per raid party firing at a time. Raid parties include anyone communicating towards the common goal of raiding the base. Allies may band together to raid a base, but two neutral factions may not.

Counter-Cannons that are built into the walls of bases are allowed. Only one counter cannon may be shot at a time if several are built into the walls of a base.

  • No Alt Claiming or Sister Factions
A “sister faction” is a faction whose sole purpose is to boost another faction, be it on f top, money or events. Each faction must act independently of each other. This means that each faction should have a base of its own, and must act in a way that boosts its own interests over others - so we expect to see every faction grinding to get spawners for themselves, supplying themselves with gear and fighting to win events for themselves if they attend. Two factions can never share a base nor can they share walls of a base. Each faction must have an independent base, at least 10 chunks of unclaimed land between claims..

This doesn’t mean you can’t have an ally, this means that your relationship with your “ally” shouldn’t be wholly one-sided and beneficial to one faction but not the other.

The reason for this is because we have player limits per faction, so a “sister faction” that exists purely to boost the main faction bypasses the player limit as well as other limits such as the claiming limit.

Alt claiming is the act of having a Minecraft account that isn’t your main account (an alt account) in a faction different to your main account, and that faction claiming land. This bypasses the claiming limit imposed on factions and is strictly not allowed. Your alt should only ever be in your faction, which is why we have /f alt - to allow alts to join factions without taking up valuable slots for real people.

  • No VPN Evaders
While obviously tough to moderate, all factions must not invite players into their faction that are ban evading or VPN evading. High level factions will be checked by admins to ensure there isn’t someone who shouldn’t be there. It is your responsibility to ensure the people you’re inviting to your faction are players that are allowed to be playing (players you’ve seen on for weeks / months, players you can talk to in discord, etc). Once again, “We didn’t know” is not an acceptable excuse for having a VPN evader in your faction.

  • No Inappropriate Faction Names or Titles
Anything you’re not allowed to say in chat cannot be in a faction name or player title. The person setting the inappropriate name or title will be punished, as we have a logging system to view who sets it.

Repeated instances of these types of behavior from person(s) in a particular faction may result in factions being disbanded or disqualified from winning f top prizes by a member of management.

Base Defenses

  • No Unraidable Bases
Any base that is considered unraidable is not allowed. Anyone caught using blocks or strategies that makes their base impossible to raid will have their base edited so that players can cannon the walls.

  • No Illegal Walls
In terms of the amount of walls you’re allowed, then you can have as many as you can fit within the claim limit. You are limited in the amount of, and style of, regen walls. Each base is allowed, on each side (presuming the base is a square/rectangle shape) 1 layer of regen walls. Not super regens, not regen filters, just normal regen walls - the classic. All other forms of regens (regen chests, regen roofs, etc) are not allowed. If you are concerned whether your regen walls are allowed or not, ask any Admin to confirm.

All lava shown in the photo can be fully source blocked with an exception. If using Minechat Regens (top right) only the one-wide can be source blocked. The two-wide gaps must only be the top block as source, and the rest of the column as flowing.

Lava-water walls are not allowed. These are walls that alternate between lava, cobblestone, and water in a repeating fashion. The rule of thumb is not to use lava in your wall defences other than in your regen layers. Any walls using Signs are also not allowed.

You're also not allowed to claim for example 20 chunks for base walls in a row, then leave a gap, then claim 10 more chunks for walls. That bypasses the claim cap and is not allowed. Your base claims must all be connected, with no intentional gaps.

Bases can have as much obsidian and sand as they want, as well as filters.

  • No Illegal Patching Methods
Repairing walls by hand is allowed. Using any GenBucket to repair walls while being raided is considered a Bug Abuse ban. Any block that is not a slab or a full block is not allowed for patching (fences, cobble walls, etc).

  • No Watering or Blocking Spawners or Chests
Spawners covered in water or entirely encased in blocks will have their covering removed by an admin if reported. All spawners must be open to air at all times.

All chests in your base must be visible and accessible. This means no regen chests, and no covering in lava. Covering chests with water is allowed. A rule of thumb is to allow any chest to be right clicked without interference.

  • No Distributing Faction Point Rods
If you've earned a points rod through an event then that's the faction that the points should be added to, if you're found to be boosting another faction with these then the points will be taken with no refund.
