TimelessReborn Rules

TimelessReborn Rules

Faction Strikes

If your faction violates any rules on TimelessReborn, we will issue a Faction Strike (if outlined in the rule). If your faction receives a strike, the punishment will vary in line with the strike given.
If wealth is deducted from your faction, it will be done at the End of the World (EotW). We will deduct the value from the final value of /f top..
Run /f strike in-game any time to see the amount of strikes (if any) for your faction.

Strike 1 - Warning Strike, no value changed
Every strike thereafter will remove 10% of your faction value.
For example, if you receive three strikes in a season, your total faction value will be depreciated by 20%.

We reserve the right to disband or disqualify any faction if we deem the faction of severely violating any rule. Examples of this may be duping or severe staff disrespect.

You are in no way authorised nor allowed to take 'revenge' on another faction for breaking a rule. In other words, you may not violate a rule just as another faction has done so - we will treat it as an equal rule violation.


Client-Side Modifications

These are the only mods allowed on TimelessReborn. If you think any additional mods should be allowed on our network, create a support request.
NOTE: TimelessReborn does not permit downloading any part of its server builds (such as the spawn and WarZone). Punishment for doing so is a faction strike. If continued, we will issue a ban. You may download bases or other parts of the map, providing they are not within 10 chunks of any spawn, PVP area, WarZone or KoTH.

Last Update: Allowed allies to assist with raiding

General Rules

Use common sense

Rule Explanation
If you think something is violating the rules or would be frowned upon, we may act on that. Don't intentionally try to find loopholes in our rules, as we will punish you in line with abusing bugs and/or exploits.

Faction Names must be appropriate

Rule Explanation
Your Faction Name may not contain any derogatory remarks to a protected group, as required by law. These groups are Age, Disability, Gender reassignment, Marriage and civil partnerships, Pregnancy and maternity, Race, Religion or belief, Sex and Sexual Orientation.

Punishment
Naming your faction as such will result in a faction strike, and your name changed.
Additionally, a member of the management team may forcibly change your faction name if it is impersonating another well-known faction.

IRL Scamming

Rule Explanation
Scamming store items in any form is prohibited.

Punishment
A blacklist will be put in place if any real-world monetary value was exchanged.

Inappropriate Usernames or Skins

Rule Explanation
Any skin which is deemed inappropriate or offensive to a protected group (see list under faction name rules) is not allowed.

Punishment
A ban will be put in place until the name/skin is changed.

Harassment

Rule Explanation
Spamming players or staff in a way which causes discomfort to the person being spammed is not allowed.

Punishment
A three day ban will be put in place, scaling by three days per offence.

Cannons must have a maximum speed of four seconds

Rule Explanation
TimelessReborn allows four-second cannons. If these speeds are passed, a strike will be issued, the cannon destroyed and the base rolled back.
If you are unsure of the speed of your cannon, or feel that it may be in violation of the rules, ask a staff member to check.

Punishment
The base will be rolled back and a faction strike will be issued to the offending faction.

Maximum Alternative Accounts

Rule Explanation
We have a maximum of six alternative accounts per player, and a maximum of twenty per faction.

Punishment
If exceeded, you will be given 24 hours to remove any additional alternative accounts from your faction in the event of a faction maximum violation. If the amount of alts is above 20 after 24 hours, you will receive a faction strike.
If a personal account goes over four alternative accounts, you will be asked to select the six alternative accounts you want to use, and the rest will be banned.

B-Claiming

Rule Explanation
We do not allow B-Claiming of any form on TimelessReborn. B-Claiming is where you claim all chunks around another faction to prevent them from expanding.

Punishment
You will be given 24 hours to remove all B-Claims. If they refuse to unban them, an administrator will remove the B-Claims and issue a 4 day ban to the user who claimed the land. Additionally, your faction will receive a strike.
Repeat offences will result in one strike per offence and a 4 day ban to the user who claimed the land if they have previously b-claimed.

Corner Claiming

Rule Explanation
Each faction may claim only one corner in the entire map. This is in the Overworld, Nether and End.

Punishment
You will be given 24 hours to remove additional corner claims. If you do not within the time provided, an administrator will remove additional corner claims and you will receive a strike.

Hidden Value

Rule Explanation
You must have 80% of your total 'value' placed at any one time

Punishment
You will be given 24 hours to place additional items of value. If you do not within the time provided, any hidden item will be removed and a strike will be issued.

Note
Should you intentionally hide value in Player Balances (by purchasing spawners at the end of the world, for instance) then you will be moved down one place on /ftop (irrelevant of values of other factions).

Merging F-Top Factions

Rule Explanation
You may not merge your faction with any other faction throughout the duration of any season if either of the factions are on the current /ftop 1.

Punishment
A strike will be issued and you will be moved down one place on the final /ftop (e.g. if you are F-Top 3, you will swap places with F-Top 4). Any players involved in the merger will be issued with a 72 hour ban.

Abusing Bugs or Exploits

Rule Explanation
We have a zero-tolerance policy to anyone abusing bugs or exploits on TimelessReborn.

Punishment
Punishments will be issued in line with the severity of the bug or exploit.

Insiding

Rule Explanation
This is where someone essentially 'betrays' their own faction, intentionally stealing from the faction or raiding the faction as a member of the faction.

Punishment
If in conjunction with another faction, a strike will be issued to the other faction. The player who has insided will be banned until the next realm launches.

DDoS and Doxxing

Rule Explanation
A DDoS or DoS attack is where a player intentionally tries to overload the network to prevent other players from being able to join.
Doxxing is where a player's personal details in any form are exposed against their will.

Punishment
Both DDoSing and Doxxing will result in a blacklist from TimelessReborn

Interfering in Raids

Rule Explanation
If Faction A is raiding Faction B, your faction (Faction C) may not get involved in any way, shape or form.
The exception to this is if Faction C is allied with Faction A and wishes to defend the base.
Only one faction may be raiding a base at any given time. The only exception to this is if a faction is allied with the attacking faction.

Punishment
You will receive a faction strike, and all players involved from Faction C will receive a 72 hour ban.

Faction Boosting

Rule Explanation
Faction Boosting is where a faction gives another faction anything enabling them to rank higher on Faction Top.
We consider boosting to have taken place if over $2,500,000 has been given throughout the map from one faction to another

Punishment
Both factions involved will be given a strike, and whatever given will be removed from the economy (i.e. will be deleted/despawned).

Patching & Mining during a raid

Rule Explanation
You may patch walls/parts of your base during a raid, however, you cannot use Schematica, Genbuckets or any non-manual method of repairing your base.
You cannot mine spawners during a raid.

Punishment
The players patching walls or mining spawners will be banned for 48 hours. Any spawners mined will be removed from the economy.

Spawner Surroundings

Rule Explanation
Each stack of spawners (maximum of 8 in a pillar) must be surrounded by 9 blocks of air on all horizontal axis.

Punishment
You will be given 24 hours to rectify this. After which point 20% of spawners will be removed, and a faction strike will be issued.

Note
As there has been confusion as to this rule in the past, here is an example of an allowed setup:

This setup is allowed as each pillar has air blocks all around it
This, however, is not allowed as there is not air around each spawner in the pillar.

Glitching / Abusing Server Plugins

Rule Explanation
Glitching into a base or abusing plugins on the server is considered an abuse of an exploit and is dealt with as such.


Base Rules

These rules cover all aspects of building a base, claiming chunks for your base and any other rules related to your base.

Regen Walls

Rule Explanation
Walls which automatically repair themselves (such as by placing cobblestone via a mix of lava and water) are not allowed.

Punishment
The faction will be given 24 hours to remove their regen walls. If not removed, a faction strike will be issued and an administrator will remove all walls on the base with WorldEdit.

Unraidable Blocks

Rule Explanation
Placing any unraidable block (i.e. blocks that stop cannons from working) is strictly prohibited. These blocks for example could be banners, cobwebs, soul sand, ender chests, slime blocks and anvils.

Punishment
The faction will be given 24 hours to remove their unraidable blocks. If not removed, a faction strike will be issued.

Anti-Nuke Walls

Rule Explanation
We only allow a maximum of two chunks of Anti-Nuke walls or "Finnster Walls" (watch the video for an explanation on what these walls are) per side of your base.

Punishment
The faction will be given 24 hours to remove their anti-nuke/finnster walls. If not removed, a faction strike will be issued and an administrator will remove all walls on the base with WorldEdit.

Automated Raid Checkers

Rule Explanation
Any automatic service which alerts you to a raid is fully prohibited. You can manually check your base for a raid, however, any mod or bot that does it for you is prohibited.

Punishment
The faction will be issued with a strike and any player with an automated checker will be banned for 48 hours.

Spawner Locations

Rule Explanation
Spawners must all be in one base or claim and cannot be hidden in walls or a roof.

Punishment
The faction will be given 24 hours to fix their spawners. If this time passes, the faction responsible will be given a strike and the spawners hidden or moved will be removed from the economy.


Attacking Rules

These rules cover any raiding or cannoning and apply to the attacking faction.

Cannon Speeds

Rule Explanation
See the rule at the top of the page for more information. Cannon speeds are 4 seconds minimum.

Punishment
The base will be rolled back and a strike issued.

Lag Machines/Lag Cannons

Rule Explanation
Any cannon designed to cause lag to the server for any reason is not allowed.

Punishment
The base will be rolled back and a faction strike issued. The player who built the cannon will be banned for 48 hours.

One Faction Limit

Rule Explanation
Only one faction can raid a base at any given time. Other factions cannot be involved in any way regardless of relation.

Punishment
The base will be rolled back and a faction strike issued. The players involved will be banned for 24 hours.

Raid Claim Limit

Rule Explanation
Only one raid claim may be made at any time during a raid. Additionally, raid claims should only be as big as necessary, not unnecessarily taking up space or dwarfing (or anything which could be considered B-Claiming).

Punishment
The base will be rolled back and a faction strike issued.
