    • /f home trapping -
      • 1st Offense - 1 Day Temp Ban.
      • 2nd Offense - 3 Day Temp Ban.
      • 3rd Offense - 7 Day Temp Ban.
      • 4th Offense - Refer to an admin.
        • /f home trapping is not allowed under any circumstance, it undermines the spirit of the game and can be harmful to the community, as well as it usually harms new players the most.

      • 1st Offense - 1 Day Temp Ban.
      • 2nd Offense - 3 Day Temp Ban.
      • 3rd Offense - 7 Day Temp Ban.
      • 4th Offense - Refer to an admin.
        • Kick and killing is allowed if given kick and killers have a legitimate reason, for example the kicked and killed player was planning on betraying/insiding and the kick and killers have proof. Kick and killing is not allowed if done purely for kills, gear, valuables, etc. In addition kick and killing newer players is not permitted, the term newer is defined under admin discretion.
    • Trapping with PvP Timer -
      • Not allowed and punishment is at the discretion of the admins.
    • Attempting to hide Trophies on other factions
      • Trying to hide your Trophy points is not permitted and punishment is at the discretion of the admins.
    • Alternate Accounts (Alts) -
      • 1st Offense - Warning.
      • 2nd Offense 7 Day Temp Ban. on main account, alt account perm banned.

      • 2nd Offense - 7 Day Temp Ban.

        • Kicking players / Leaving factions to avoid DTR loss is not allowed, under no circumstance regardless of what it is be it knocking KOTH, jumping into a trap, peeling for a faction member, etc. It completely defeats the purpose of DTR.

    • Block glitching -
      • 1st Offense - 1 Day Temp Ban.
      • 2nd Offense - 3 Day Temp Ban.

        • Block glitching is not allowed, in a gamemode like HCF where DTR matters so much, being able to die through blocks undermines the point of faction claims. Remember to be careful when building your bases, for example using a lever placed in wilderness to open a fence gate is not considered block glitching.
