Hacked Clients / Disallowed modifications
Any use of a hacked client or disallowed modification will result in your account being removed from the server.

This can include but is not limited to:
  • Clients and/or Blacklisted Mods (the list of black listed mods can be found here)
  • Resource Packs that would be deemed blacklisted (such as xray)
  • Macros / Autoclickers
  • Scripts
  • Exploits that present similarly to a client
  • Setting your attack key to something other than your left mouse button
  • Hardware modifications (such as rapid fire buttons, double click buttons, or weighting buttons etc)
  • Raid detection
  • DDoS, Do x, release of personal information including maintaining IP address lists and databases
  • Swatting
  • Butterfly clicking (using two fingers alternating to left click your mouse)
  • Drag clicking
  • Bots that automate aspects of the game that would be seen as an advantage (auto rotation, auto placing, or commands such as /near)
Faction Strikes
Your faction can receive 5 strikes before being disbanded by an admin. Faction strikes act as a way to punish factions that are breaking minor (or major) rules as a collective.
Players breaking the same rule in a faction will be punished and the faction may receive a strike. If a faction hits 5 strikes it will be disbanded by an admin and disqualified from the season.

Any player that is Mod or below will be allowed to continue playing for the remainder of the season if a faction is disbanded however anyone coleader+ will be banned temporarily until the end of the current season.

No Advertising
Putting a link/reference/name of another server in chat that relates to another server, leads to pornographic images or sites, screamers, pictures, and links/references to your personal youtube/twitch account (where the content is unrelated to AxialMC) may result in a ban.

1st Offense: Verbal Warning (warning unless the advertisement is being spammed)
2nd Offense: Permanent Ban (lesser offenses can be appeals on the forums under Ban Appeals)

Spam advertising will result in an immediate and permanent ban.

Glitches and Exploits - If an exploit is found, report it immediately by contacting a staff member.
Using a glitch or exploit within the game to provide yourself, your faction or others an advantage will result in a ban from the server.

Examples:
  • Enderpearl Glitching
  • Lava / Water Glitching
  • Item Duplication
  • exploiting /nick to evade getting muted and causing spam
1st Offense: 1 Day Temp Ban
2nd Offense: 7 Day Temp Ban
3rd Offense: 30 Day Temp Ban
Fourth Offense: Permanent

Note: Serious exploits will result in immediate removal from the server.

Racism, Discrimination, Sexual, and Derogatory Remarks are not welcome here.
Its not welcome so don't do it.

1st Offense: Verbal Warning (unless it's excessive in which case you could be muted or removed from the server.)
2nd Offense: 4hr temp mute
3rd Offense: 1-3 Day Temp Ban depending on severity
4th Offense: 7 Day Temp Ban

Respect Players and Staff
Staff are volunteers that are here to ensure the server runs smoothly. They do not have the option of ignoring rule breakers. If you choose to disrespect or disregard them, you risk punishment. They are not here to abuse, they are here to keep the server running for everyone. This includes excessive trolling, name calling etc.

Factions is a war based strategic game, we completely recognize that players will get upset, will flame each other, banter, and sometimes even lose their cool. What players have to remember is that there is a line between mocking an individual's in-game abilities or skills, and making threatening, hostile statements about/towards them as a person. Excessive toxicity, staff disrespect, harassment, etc. will not be tolerated.

1st Offense: Verbal Warning (unless it's excessive)
2nd Offense: Formal Warning (/warn)
3rd Offense: 1 Day Temp Ban
4th Offense: 7 Day Temp Ban

Excessive offenses will be at the discretion of the upper staff and punishment will be at the discretion of the Head Admin / Owners etc. Punishments could include, but are not limited to Permanent Ban, IP Mute, IP Ban, Alt Muting and the like.

No Sexually Inappropriate Material


1st Offense: Verbal Warning
2nd Offense: Formal Warning
3rd Offense: 1 Day Temp Ban
4th Offense: 7 Day Temp Ban

Don't Spam

1st Offense: Verbal Warning
2nd Offense: Formal Warning
3rd Offense: Temp Mute up to 60 Minutes
4rd Offense: 1 Day Temp Ban

In Game Scamming is Not Permitted
Scamming is not permitted on the server. Players misrepresenting items for sale, offering to give an item in payment for actions and not following through when able, bait and switch, are all examples of scamming. This INCLUDES renaming items as if they are something they are not (like mooshroom eggs, custom enchant runes etc) in the Auction House. Using alts to scam could result in a permanent ban.

1st Offense: 5 Day Temp Ban
2nd Offense: 14 Day Temp Ban
3rd Offense: 30 Day Temp Ban

TP/TPA Killing, Portal Trapping, and Traps
TP/TPA Killing and Traps that remove a players ability to /spawn or /home will result in removal from the server without warning. Examples of bannable traps are those that would render the player completely unable to play (ie: If the trapper were to log off the player would be stuck there indefinitely, tping to the edge of a derp to hit the tp'er in etc.). If a player chooses to enter a dangerous area they do so at their own risk (This is, after all Factions boys and girls!)

Spamming or advertising for "Wild PvP" in which players unclaim an area with the plan to claim on arrival of the other member can result in the same outcome.

1st Offense: 5 Day Temp Ban
2nd Offense: 14 Day Temp Ban
3rd Offense: 30 Day Temp Ban
**Using alts to avoid a harsher punishment could result in removal of your accounts from the server.

Selling in game items / IGN's etc for paypal or other game items
Players are not permitted to sell in game items including their minecraft account on the server for paypal / cash or make deals regarding other game modes

1st Offense: If purposefully trying to hide selling for IRL up to 7d ban up to permanent
2nd Offense: 30d ban up to permanent
3rd Offense: Permanent Ban plus possible Alt Ban / IP Ban

Note: If you are caught selling for IRL money both the seller and buyer will be banned.

Money Scamming / Chargebacks
In Real Life Money Scamming in which someone promises to purchase a server store item in return for favors in game will result in a Ban. Scamming someone out of IRL Money (this can include items that are sold at the Server Store or high value items in game) is a perm ban. Period.

Purchasing ranks for any player other than yourself or in trade for items in game is not permitted. Players who agree to this type of transaction are placing themselves at risk. Chargebacks will result in a permanent ban from the server until the funds are repayed for a first time offense only.

Using alt accounts to make a purchase and chargeback will result in your account and all affiliated accounts being removed from the server as well may result in an IP ban.

Initiating a Chargeback on a purchase may result in removal of your account, affiliated accounts and ip from the server. If you have an issue with a transaction please submit a support request here: http://axialmc.com/threads/purchase-support.1/

Automating the Economy
Players are not permitted to use any form of scripts or cheats to automate the economy. This includes creating or using scripts that auto sell items you collect.

20 Chunk buffer limit

Factions are only allowed to claim a maximum of 20 chunks out from their base wall. If your base is 15x15 chunks you can claim 20 chunks out from your base wall.

Factions may not claim within 10 chunks of other factions. This means you can not claim your base within 10 chunks of another faction. This does not apply to raid claims.

Raid claims are claims that are used to raid a faction.

15 Chunk base limit
Your base can be a maximum of 15x15 chunks.

Bases found to be over this limit may be unclaimed by an admin.

No Inappropriate IGNs
As stated in rule 4: Racism, Discrimination, Sexual, and Derogatory Remarks, Impersonating staff, or words that are typically filtered on Axial are examples of IGN's not welcome here. If a player is seen with an inappropriate IGN, they will be banned until they change their name and an appeal is submitted.

1st Offense: Permanent ban until changed
Continued offenses could result in complete removal from the server.

You may NOT use TNT or Liquid of any kind to "protect" your spawners

This means you may not place TNT around your spawners to prevent them being raided (or destroyed if you raid them). Trying to create unraidable spawners undermines the spirit of the game (this is factions after all). Players caught breaking this rule could be removed from the server.

Repeat offenses could result in permanent removal from the server.

Do not attempt to bypass a mute
Bypassing a mute could result in removal from the server. Wait out your mute and follow the rules, it's really that simple.

Auto Cannoning
Auto Cannoning is a bannable offense. It undermines the spirit of the game and player interaction/involvement.

Crusher style derps/traps
You are not permitted to create/use crusher-style derps. Players who are trapped must be given a 2 block high by 1 block wide area in which they can move and defend themselves unobstructed. This includes, while in a 2x1, drowning, suffocation, anvils, glass, gates, fences, slabs, etc. Any attempt at "loop -holing" this rule (or finding a means around it) will result in punishment.

You ARE permitted to trap a player with blocks OVER their head, moving a player in to a confined 2 tall by 1 wide hole etc.

Insiding
Attempting to inside is against the rules. You are seen as a team meaning that anything you contribute to the faction is property of the faction (including spawners and money you deposit).
Players may only remove spawners with the okay from Sr. Faction members (Leaders and CoLeaders)

Players may not purposefully or maliciously undermine the faction this includes but is not limited to:
  • Removing Spawners
  • Sabbotaging faction claims or defenses
  • /f open’ing Alt factions
  • Allowing themselves to be killed to make their faction overclaimable
Examples of Betrayal that are NOT considered insiding are, but are not limited to:
  • Discussion faction schedules
  • Undermining raids
  • Sharing information that could be gained from proper monitoring of enemies
For this rule to be looked into the faction MUST have in place appropriate /f perms, /2fa, and taken reasonable precautions to ensure they have taken steps necessary to avoid being insided. This can include but is not limited to:
  • Making sure alt factions are properly closed
  • Creggs / TNT are disabled for faction members within important claims.
  • TNT is disabled for faction members within base claims
  • Dispensers are disabled for faction members within base claims
  • Faction claim their base with their faction or ally faction to avoid people /f leaving
  • Ensuring new mods and / or members do not have access to items that could leave the faction vulnerable (such as sponge or obsidian within base claims)
Factions must report Insiding immediately and can do so in the Discord at the top of the Discord in the Insiding Reports channel.

Reports will be reviewed on a case by case basis and could result in removal for the duration of the map or the network indefinitely for the account and / or affiliated accounts.

Base Size Limit
Max Base Size for all factions will be limited to 15x15 chunks. As well, typical buffer defenses will NOT be permitted within the factions base.

  • Players are permitted to create grinder boxes and water protect the exterior of their grinder boxes
  • Players are permitted to create "tp grinder" boxes and water protect the exterior of those tp grinder boxes
  • Players are permitted to implement reverse layers between base floors
  • Players are permitted to implement regenerating reverse layers between base floors
  • Players are NOT permitted to include regens within the base
  • Players are NOT permitted to include watered walls within the base

Checkboxes
Check boxes are an automated system (often created with redstone) that allow players to check their buffers with ease. The following applies to Checkboxes:
  • Checkbox must be 10 chunks or less from your BASE wall
    • Note: this is the halfway point in the permitted buffer limit
  • Alt's are NOT permitted to AFK in your checkbox / on your buffer
    • AFK pools are NOT permitted inside of your checkbox
    • Players are NOT permitted to have an alt consistently just logging in/out from the checkbox to auto check buffers
Attempts to undermine this rule could result in your removal from the server (consider this fair warning!) You can run /f check to enable an automated notice to check your walls.

Undermining the Spirit of the Game

If you participate in actions that are deemed to undermine the spirit of the game (anything that is implied or understood as unintended game/play exploits, or just overall the spirit of the game or how the game was intended) you can be removed permanently from the server.

Examples of undermining the spirit of the game include but are not limited to:
  • OP Cannons:
    • Obliterate multiple watered walls/reverse layers at once (only 1 wall per button press)
    • Bypassing appropriate defenses using a double stack/button spam cannons (you can’t just shoot the wing and bust the wall behind it through a buffer)
      • Players are not permitted to single shot / double stack reverse layers but are permitted to one shot a regen roof or regen bar
    • Claiming raid claims with a core chunk for greater than 24hrs
  • OP Defenses:
    • Webbing Walls
    • Checkerboarding claims outside of a buffer
    • Stripping claims outside a buffer
    • Lining up your core chunk
  • Purposefully causing lag/trying to crash the server
  • Purposefully trying to undermine the balance intended by the server
  • Undermining Events (any events) which can include but are not limited to:
    • Admin Events
    • Permanent Events (such as outposts)
      • Such as genning walls around the entire event
  • Sharing information that was shared in confidence (leaking update information when you’ve been trusted to help test)
  • Buffing or stacking votes
  • Purposefully filling planet slots with alt accounts
  • Undermining contests of any kind
Breaking ANY of these rules on any AxialMC Platform (including bypassing Discord server groups, bypassing Discord bans)could result in:
Formal Warnings
Temporary Ban (in game and/or on the forums/Discord)
Permanent Ban (in game and/or on the forums/Discord)
"Spam Cleaning" Your account (removal of all posts)

NOTE: If you log while frozen, delete files, disable typical logging functions in your pc/windows etc, history, change settings, amend or disable windows logging, start, refresh, or end windows processes, alter game specific logs or the like, remove edit or alter any file, message or the like on your pc or pc applications, during or before a screenshare you WILL be permanently banned with the removal of the ability to purchase an unban. This punishment could also apply to alts. Failure to join the Discord while frozen will result in the same.

If you wish to make a ban report you must have video evidence

You are not permitted to record in the Discord unless you are planning to provide that recording, and keep that recording, to the admins only. Recording the screensharing process is not permitted. If you record in the Discord you and all your affiliated accounts and IP may be banned from the server.

Evading an IP ban is not permitted.
Execution of forum punishments is up to the Administrators, Owners and Developers.
