What is Factions?
Group up with other players in a Faction. Claim land to build and protect your base.
The amount of land you can claim is based on your power (1 power = 1 chunk). Each player contributes 50 power to a faction. If they die they lose 10 power, and it takes 50 minutes to regenerate that power back.
Make sure your power is not lower than your claimed land, or other factions will be able to overclaim you.
Overclaiming is not the main way to raid however. There are other methods such as creeper eggs, or creating tnt cannons to breach through other factions bases/walls (Schematica/printer mod is allowed for creating these cannons). Factions are allowed to create walls of up to 20 chunks out from the center of their base (20 buffer limit).
The more valuable blocks & spawners you have placed in your faction claims, the higher your faction ranks on /f top.
