Owning multiple accounts is strictly forbidden on our network for several reasons.

Allowing multiple accounts per player would lead to a number of issues that would be unfair for normal players or that would simply lead to abuse and exploitation.


Here's a list of potential issues we're not willing to come across:
  • Ban evasion
  • Punishment evasion
  • Doubling the amount of rewards (i.e. vote keys, drops from parties, etc)
  • Exploitation of game mechanics
  • Bypass of limitations (usually unlockable through ranks)
  • Tracking issues
  • Better chances of scamming
  • Easier to break other rules
  • 1st offense - tempban 1d
  • 2nd offense - tempban 1w
  • 3rd offense - tempban 2w
  • 4th offense - ban

Exploiting game mechanics is another kind of behavior we will not tolerate.

Exploiting game mechanics is the act of gaining unfair advantages through the abuse of commands or anything in a way that is not the one intended (i.e. resetting skyblock islands to get nether spawners, making someone suicide to boost minigame stats, boosting on pvp etc)
Some additional punishments such as balance reductions may be applied!
  • 1st offense - tempban 2w and score reset
  • 2nd offense - tempban 4w and score reset
  • 3rd offense - ban and score reset

  • Macros (not keybinds)
  • Weights on keyboard/mouse
  • Anything that makes you mine or do anything automatically (including issuing commands)
  • 1st offense - tempban 2w and -50% eco
  • 2nd offense - ban and eco reset

In this section we try to cover all those behaviors and actions that don't really belong to any particular category.

  • Ban evading
  • Helping ban evaders
  • Keeping the secret when someone confesses to you they're breaking rules
  • Forging/providing false evidence

The punishment can range from a jail to a permanent ban, depending on the case.

Factions is a competitive server very different than other gamemodes and as such it deserves its own set of rules.

The rules stated here have been created with a reason, looking for loopholes will not be tolerated, and punishments will be enforced if necessary.

The following is a list of disallowed behaviors with a punishment that ranges between 6h to 7d tempban and eventually perma ban, on occurrence claims shall be unclaimed.

Claims and claiming:

  • Factions are only allowed to keep/use one corner, upon having more they will be unclaimed.
  • Chunk Buffer Limit: factions are allowed a maximum of 20 chunks buffering on each side their base, the buffer starts where the main box ends. (Regens within the box are not allowed)
  • 45 wall protection is not allowed. Upon being made, the walls will be removed and the chunks unclaimed.
  • Base merging: there should be at least 10 chunks of wilderness between the chunks from both factions.
  • Building unraidable walls in any way is not allowed (i.e. cactus/chest/glass etc).

You can ask a staff member if you are in doubt.
We also reserve the right to discard any evidence older than 2 weeks.
