Version: Rules v1.17

By Acult

Last update: 26-06-2021

1. General

  • 1.1 Avoid a forbidden behavior, which consists of:

1.1.1 Raising shitstorm discussions on purpose against a specific player, or faction, or side

1.1.2 Criticizing staff and server, NB: The generalized criticism term is referred to all those sentences related to "you're a c*nt, you're a brainless biased, you took this decision because x and x, you only care about x, you are x and such"

1.1.3 Flooding, spamming

1.1.4 Abusing of caps lock

1.1.5 Causing a mess on purpose when staff is busy on certain tasks, for example in managing wars

1.1.6 Disrespectful behavior toward staff decisions

1.1.7 Disrespectful behavior toward staff members aswell as provocations, insults toward staff, ignoring staff warnings on purpose

1.1.8 Random accuses of being biased (just because your opinion doesn't match with staff, they aren't biased)

1.1.9 Abusing of staff dm (fake reports, insults, provocations, your personal toxic opinions about others which none cares about).

For each of these behaviors, staff has access to a collection of examples and relative punishment. They generally vary between SOFT Warning, 1 min mute (Warning), 10 min mute (Heavy breaking of rules), 30 min mute (Super Heavy Reiterated breaking of rules).

  • 1.5 Do not spam IP or sites of other servers, players are earned not stolen from those who have won them loyally.

Penalty: Permanent Ban [Global]

  • 1.6 Do not encourage other users to break the regulation. (Ex. Exploiting a bug and spreading the exploit to other users)

Penalty: Depends on the infraction occurred. The penalty will be applied to both those who have encouraged the infringement and the victim.

  • 1.7 Do not contact the staff in private, on platforms other than discord and the server, the Discord server exists because everyone can try and help you!
  • 1.10 Everyone is responsible for their account, so whatever happens the owner of the account will be punished, this does not apply in case of theft of the account.
  • 1.11 English and Italian are the main languages of the server, thus avoid to spam the chat with long discussions in any other language (use private channels instead).

It's not rule breaking if you write few words in your own language, or even few sentences. It's considered a discussion (thus breaking the rule) only when 2 or more players are involved into talking in their own language for several time. There is no punishment for such rule, which is more like a common guideline, instead you would get warned or 10min muted if you severely spam the chat.

  • 1.12 Do not ask to be staff. At the beginning you will be ignored, but if you continue asking you will be punished.
  • 1.15 New players can't be killed, this protection is valid for 3 day (the time start from the first login). If you kill the newbie you MUST refund the stuff back. If the new players attack someone they lose their protection. Self-defense isn't considered as an attack.

Note: You can check when players first log into the server with the /res [playername] command.

  • 1.15.1 If a new player participates in a war (which is seen as an event) does not mean their noob-protection of 3 days will wear off.

2. Gameplay

  • 2.1 Do not use hacks on the server and do not make any changes that could benefit you in the gameplay. The only Mods allowed are those that modify the graphic appearance of the game like Optifine and Shaders.

The staff is able to see when the hacks have been used, but the tools that are available are not always accurate and therefore it is possible that you are asked to show your minecraft folder via screen sharing on AnyDesk or Discord, this process is not to be accepted compulsorily, however in the event that it is not possible and the anti-cheat detects a number of infractions it will be necessary to continue according to the indicated penalty. It is advisable to have a Discord account in order to avoid problems and to be able to protect in case the anti-cheat detects infractions. The staff may require another program for screen sharing.

Penalty: Ban 1 week > Permanent Ban [Global]

  • 2.2 Do not exploit server bugs or glitches in general to enter bases, obtain items or get rich, because you will only cause unbalances in the gameplay of all the players and you will be punished. Bugs and glitches include and are not limited to: Using mount glitches to move through blocks, using claim glitches to mine ore, using boats to get past gates, etc.

Penalty: The penalty will depend exclusively on how much you have unbalanced the gameplay, minimum penalty: 3-Day Ban [Global - Local] + Handing over the stuff you glitched.

  • 2.3 If your account has been banned. Do not register a new one because it will only cause the ban of both.

It's forbidden for a Staff member to enter an enemy structures during a war, because it might cause an advantage due to knowledge of layout, traps, etc.

  • 2.7 Any kind of tp-kill is forbidden. Definition of tp-kill: dying within 5 minutes to the hands of a player after he tped to you/you tped to him, or because of him.

In 5 minutes, the player will be actually able to recognize if it's a trap or some sort of tp-kill and proptly escape in time. After 5 minutes have passed, it will be considered a normal kill.
