When you join our network by registering an account, you agree to our conditions and rules stated in this post. "I didn't know," or "I didn't read the rules," are not valid justifications. Depending on the case, we will apply the same punishments in the same way to everyone who breaks the rules. Please remember to check this post at least once every two weeks as its rules and punishments may change!

After numerous and repeated offenses that may vary from player to player you will get the maximum punishment (except the ban) of the category skipping all the lower punishments. After 60 or more offenses you will be permanently banned from the server. We will consider your offenses in your past 90 days. No more resets at predefined dates, now you're forced to always behave correctly.

Please note that the following punishments are just indicative, depending on the case we can chose to apply different punishments.

 

Cheating, modding, exploiting, ...

The list of allowed client modifications is subject to change at any given time. If you don't see a mod on the list but would like to know if it is allowed, contact staff member. If a modification has been updated since it was listed here to include new or changed features, it may now no longer be allowed. Please remember that all use of modifications, including the ones listed here, is done at your own risk. If you're caught using/having a prohibited mod, you will get banned, even if you didn't know if it was prohibited or not.

Allowed client modifications:
- Optifine (allows Minecraft to run faster and look better with full support for HD textures)

- Shaders
- Forge and LiteLoader (as long as all mods are allowed)

All modifications which provide a significant in-game advantage to players are forbidden. Modifications which alter the way that your client sends data to the server are also strictly forbidden. Generally allowed mods are client performance improvement modifications, aesthetic modifications, HUD modifications, brightness and gamma adjustment modifications and MiniMaps.

The punishment for griefing and glitching may vary depending on the severity of the damages, note also that you may get an unofficial warn if you're using inappropriate items/weapons.

For scams we might apply economy changes (balance reset, etc) and we might take back eventual items scammed. We do not protect you if your scam involves real money without the involvement of our buycraft store.

Scamming is still allowed on factions servers. We do not handle scams that can easily be avoided with /trade and we do not handle scams that involve in real life deals/money (i.e. items in game for money on PayPal). We do handle money scams exclusively if they involve our buycraft store. Cross server scams involving at least 1 not faction server are not allowed. (i.e. factions-survival, skyblock-opfactions, etc).

You may ask staff to be a man-in-the-middle helping you in a trade to avoid scams, staff is not allowed to scam you while being a man-in-the-middle.

Note: Unauthorized accesses may lead to a total account reset as well. Note: If you'll have any sort of unauthorized modification during the screenshare you'll be banned even if not used in the current session. Note: You must report someone for disclosing info within 3 days from the disclosure. Reporting later simply will be considered as not an issue.

Exception: If a player is found accessing account on Faction/OpFactions to raid others this will be taken as Multiple accounts. Players will be banned and eco will be reset.
