TimelessReborn Rules

TimelessReborn Rules

Friendly Reminder

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. User Common Sense! Staff have final say/decision, with the Senior Staff  Team having the ability to overrule any rule, decision or community consensus.

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.

Faction Strikes:

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.
