OP Factions Rules Explanations

In this thread, you will find an explanation of every OP Factions-specific rule. Breaking these rules in most cases will result in faction punishments (strikes). Each amount of strikes results in a different faction punishment. Note that even inactive strikes count to the faction disqualification when reaching 10 strikes.

Strike punishments
  • 2 Strikes - 24 hours /f raid ban
  • 3 Strikes - 10% value reduction
  • 4 Strikes - 12 hours no /f shield
  • 5 Strikes - 48 hours /f raid ban
  • 6 Strikes - 20% value reduction
  • 7 Strikes - 18 hours no /f shield
  • 8 Strikes - 30% value reduction
  • 10 Strikes - Disqualification from Factions Top
Team Factions is a team which handles OP Factions reports and hands out punishments. The team is run by experienced staff members who played OP Factions in the past, so they have high knowledge of the game mode. Feel free to make a support ticket HERE in case you have any questions about OP Factions and one of the Team Factions members will reply to it as soon as possible. However, please do not ask them to check your ticket as they may be busy.

Notes
  • If you are interested in knowing who from your faction broke a rule (and are the leader of the faction), DM a Team Factions member on Discord.
  • Include /f show of the faction/player you are reporting in your player reports. Otherwise, your report might get denied.
  • Not knowing the rules is considered ignorance on your part and you will suffer the consequences regardless.
  • The faction leader is responsible for the actions of their members. If one of them breaks the rules, the entire faction gets punished.
  • You can report people who break these rules HERE with valid video evidence.
If you have any questions, please make a support ticket HERE.
