Factions are PvP based gamemode(server). Main point of them is gaining as much value as possible as a faction and raiding other factions(taking their value which can be in spawners and etc). All aspects of PvP servers are included in it which means scamming is allowed on there.

Factions is a gamemode where you can choose your way to play, you can either be the player which farms, buys spawners and makes money, you can be the pvper or you can be the raider and raid others to gain value.

Currently there were certain payouts in buycraft and paypal money as rewards for being best on /f top, only first 3 places have been rewarded.

Tips:

Starting your faction

When you first join the server you need to do /f create [name]. When you have created your faction you can either walk from one of warps there are(end, nether or overworld) or you can do /fb wild to get into wilderness so you can start your base.

After you have find the spot you think is perfect you claim it by doing command /f claim, if you want to do a certain radius claim you type a number after the command(example: /f claim 2 ->claims 3x3 area). You can check your claims by /f map or by doing /f showclaims which shows you a list of all claims your faction has. Each claim is 16x16x256 blocks(256 being the height).

When claming you need to make sure you don't exceed the amount of allowed claims(check server specific rules). Allowed number is 20 claims from the base itself, in general that means you can have 5 chunk base and you can claim 20 more chunks from it which is 25 claims in total. Breaking that rule will result into punishment.

When you have claimed your land don't forget to /f sethome(if you do forget it and can't find it use /f showclaims to find your base coordinates). On /f showclaims the numbers shown are coordinates on /f map.

If you wish to invite your friends(or anyone else) to your faction you type /f invite [player username], to deinvite the person(if you have invited wrong person by any chance) you type /f deinvite [player username].

If you wish to invite alts into your faction you type /f alt invite [alt username]. Alts are used for aditional faction power and also for AFKing farms your faction has.

When you get faction members you can promote them with a command /f promote or with /f mod and /f coleader. Mods in faction can claim/unclaim land, invite/deinvite/kick members from faction, and can break/place/use blocks in ownerclaimed land(if that isn't defined in /f permissions as denied permission). Coleaders in faction are basicly leaders, they have all same permissions except they aren't the owner of the faction, they can do all stuff which mods can and they can also kick faction mods. Both mods and coleaders can change faction tag(/f tag [name]) and faction description(/f desc [description]).


First week of factions

When factions reset there is always huge rush in the first day, everyone is rushing to get the best position to make a base on, obviously the best position are corners, after them border and after that wilderness. The first week of factions is called mercy period(basicly it means TNT and creeper eggs are disabled).
In the first week all factions are trying to make their base as fast as possible and also make money and start the grind, bigger factions gather TNT already in the first week so as soon as TNT enables they can start with raiding and getting value from other factions.

Each faction has its own way of making money, but for someone who has just started playing sugarcane/cactus is best call. Cactus can be afked while sugarcane has to be manually farmed, after you have gathered some money off that you can start with buying spawners. Sugarcane economy maps also have payouts for person which farms the most sugarcane in first week of the season.

You start with cheaper ones like cows/pigs/sheeps and make a grinder for it(check on youtube if you don't know how to). By adding more and more spawners your income will increase over time so you can start buying better spawners. Some spawners can only be obtainable by crates(villagers) and offcourse they are best source of money if you grind them properly. Eventually you will have the best tier spawner and then you just need to AFK and protect your base from raiders. By adding more and more spawners your faction value will increase so you will move on the /f top list.


Spawners

Spawner system on Factions is somewhat different than usual, on here you can upgrade spawners up to level 28(that means there is 28 spawners stacked into one).
There is 7 ''main'' upgrades which are levels 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24 and 28. For each one of those upgrades you need to have certain XP level. I will post a list of needed xp levels for each level up of the spawners. Also, each one of those levels has special perks which will be shown in screenshots below together with xp needed for its upgrade. You upgrade spawners by placing them in another, if you have enough xp and spawners for max upgrade you can hold
Each xp level has its own xp amount, xp amount can be shown by doing command /xp ingame or on scoreboard. You can withdraw your xp by doing a command /xpbottle [amount], you can also withdraw multiple xp bottles by doing /xpbottle [amount of xp] [amount of bottles].

Important notice related to spawners is that they have durabilites, each time you break(mine or destroy with TNT/creeper) a spawner it loses 1 durability.
It means when you place it on last durability and when you mine it again you won't receive the spawner as it will break.

Raiding

Raiding refers to destroying/griefing/stealing items from someone else's or some other faction's base. In last few years raiding has significantly improved, it has gotten really complicated for somoeone who is just starting with cannoning. Main point of raiding currently is to make a most efficient cannon which will get into the base fastest and will do massive damage to the base. I won't get that far into explanation of cannons as there is just too much to explain, for that I suggest you check youtube. When you eventually get into the base you use creeper eggs to blow up all the chests and spawners. When cannoning you will need to allign perfectly with spawners(chests you want to get).
Block durability- obsidian has 3 hits durability while all other blocks have 1 hit durability. By hit I mean TNT hit/explosion. If the wall is watered you need to hybrid it(shoot TNT with sand in order to destroy the watered block, again, check youtube for more info on that).


Faction punishments

In (OP)Factions we use a strike system, there are punishments for the amount of strikes you have. Type /f warns in-game for more information about the strike punishments.
List of faction related punishments can be found here under server specific rules.
