Only a player who has reached the rank of Leader may create a Faction. To create a faction you must use the command /f create (name of Faction) and by typing this command you will be charged a fee for the creation of a faction. The current cost of creating a Faction is $100,000 and this can change at any time without notice. If you are unsure of the cost you may ask a staff member in game what the current Faction creation price is.
You must also read and understand these Faction Rules before you create a Faction. There is a special thread on the forum where you must post your intention on creating a Faction and wait for a Support Admin or Admin to approve your request. Failure to follow these Rules will result in your Faction being disbanded.
After you read these Rules and agree to follow them you must post your request to create a Faction on the forum.Faction Administration:
Only Leader or higher can create a Faction.
Faction names may not be inappropriate in any way.
Faction names may not make a player appear to be staff.
Example: Faction name of [Admin] is not allowed.
You must agree to all of the Faction Rules before you create a Faction.
This is your responsibility and saying “I didn’t know the Rules” will not mean anything.
This is required so that we can ensure Faction Admins have read and understood the Rules here.
A Faction Admin is usually the person who originally created a Faction, unless that player has given someone else ownership of their Faction. It is the Faction Admin’s job to ensure that their Faction members and moderators follow the Rules and guides outlined here. It is also the Faction Admin’s job to ensure they are running a smooth and fair Faction.
Continually check these Rules to see if there are any new changes.
Ensure that if you will be absent for an extended period of time you hand off admin status to an active player that is at least a Leader.
Ensure that your Faction description is an accurate representation of what your Faction is actually about. Abuse of Faction description could result in a disband.
It is your responsibility to appoint Faction Moderators that you trust and that will follow all the Rules outlined here.
If a Faction moderator takes all your money, kicks all your players, or unclaims all your land that is your fault and the server staff will not do anything about it.
Faction World - Battleground:
One of the main points in Factions is the idea that the most powerful Factions are going to be able to either ally with smaller Factions or claim their land and destroy them before they have a chance to grow. For this reason there is a world called Battleground and this is where all of the Faction battles will take place. This is the only world you can claim land in.
Any player Citizen or above is allowed to build in the Battleground world.Faction Claiming:
This is the only world that PVP Factions are allowed to claim land in.
This is the only world that a PVP Faction’s /f home may be placed.
Peaceful Factions may have their home and land in any world.
You are allowed to build anywhere in this world.
No WorldGuard zones, LWC protections, Warps, or set homes are allowed in this world.
Any structures in the Battleground world are not covered under the no grief rule of the server.
The only protection of land in this world is provided via Faction claimed land. Read below for more info on claiming land.
If another Faction claims your land from you they are the owners of any chests, buildings, etc that may be on the land that you lost.
This world disables many commands, including but not limited to: /home, /sethome, /warp, and /Jobs. Any abuse of this will be dealt with as a bug/glitch abuse and result in a ban from the server.
There will be no live map for the Battleground world.
Claiming land is the only way a Faction can protect their property in the Battleground world. If you claim a piece of land only your Faction will be able to build, access doors, and access chests in that area. You are also able to allow access to certain chunks for only specific players in your Faction. Read more about this on the Faction tutorial.
Only land in the Battleground world can be claimed by PVP Factions.Peaceful Factions:
Every piece of land in the Battleground world is claimable.
The only exception is the warp that leads to the Battleground world and the PVP protected “buffer” area around the warp.
You may claim land from other Factions.
Peaceful Factions are unlike any other Factions on the server and therefore have very specific Rules and guidelines to follow. Peaceful Factions will still be unable to claim in any world other than the Battleground world.
Peaceful Faction Rules:
Can have /f home in any world.Faction Request Form:
Will not allow members to leave and rejoin a Peaceful faction so they may participate in PVP.
This includes Events! By choosing to go Peaceful you are waiving your right to participate in any PVP Events that might not support peaceful members.It is $1,000,000 versus $100,000 to create a peaceful Faction.
If you are a Leader or above and are interested in creating your own Faction you must first read all of the Faction Rules and then have a Support Admin or Admin approve your Faction request on the forum.
