  • TNT Detectors are strictly against the rules. ANY form of notification when TNT/Sand lands in your claims is strictly not allowed. Discord Bots that are used for Wall Checks ARE allowed as long as they are not TNT Detectors. If you're an ally/truce that lives within another factions buffer and break this rule the faction that is contending for f top will be striked.
  • Punishment:
  • DQ + EOS Ban for Everyone Linked


  • No Wilderness Patching

  • You may not patch outside of the base claims of a given faction. This rule also extends to raid/antiraid claims, meaning that patching against a cannon in any form outside of the allowed number of claims for a cannon/base is prohibited on Minecadia.
  • Punishment:
  • 1 to 2 Faction Warnings (Depending on the patch added) + Wilderness Patch Removed


  • AFKing Walls

  • Alts and/or players are not permitted to AFK in your checkbox, on your walls or on your base. In order to be considered AFK, a player must have no in game movement, no commands, and no chats sent (Using Anti-AFK/Macros to send commands/chats do not count as being “active”). If a player is suspected to be AFK on walls, they will be either Teleported Away, Punched, or sent a /msg to confirm if they are AFK or not. After that, if the player shows no responsiveness, then they will be punished accordingly.
  • Punishment:
  • 2 Faction Warnings + 7d Ban to AFK Player.


  • CheckBoxes

  • Checkboxes are an automated system (often created with redstone) that allow players to check their buffers with ease. The following applies to Checkboxes:
    - Checkboxes must meet the following criteria:
    - The checkbox must be 10 chunks or less from your BASE wall
    - AFK pools are NOT permitted inside of your checkbox
    - Players are NOT permitted to have an alt consistently just logging in/out from the checkbox to auto-check buffers
    - Attempts to undermine this rule could result in your removal from the server (consider this fair warning!)
  • Punishment:
  • 2 Faction Warnings + Removal of Checkbox


  • Hiding Value

  • Hiding F Top Value is prohibited on Minecadia. This rule applies to factions who choose to mine their spawner value prior to their shield turning off. A spawner can be mined and moved within faction claims but may not be removed entirely from the base (Placing the spawners in containers, chests, pvs, ecs, etc, counts as removing from the base). You must place the spawners back down in the base within 15 minutes of mining them. You may not place spawners in the wilderness, All value must be placed within your baseclaim. This rule is subject to admin discretion meaning players who attempt to purposefully bypass this rule will be punished.


  • Punishment:
  • 1-2 Strikes (Depending on how much value is hidden) + Spawners Removed + 7d Ban for Involved Individuals


  • Alt Factions

  • Alt Factions are allowed, however, a faction cannot try to take multiple F-TOP positions. Factions may also not make deals with other F-TOP factions for F-TOP crates/buycraft for their safety/protection.
  • Punishment:
  • DQ to Both Factions
  • Common Sense

  • If you are purposely attempting to bypass rules in anyway this is where this rule comes into place of common sense. This includes doing things that negatively affect the gameplay for other players. This rule is up to admin discretion.
  • Example: Intentionally doing something that strikes you and another faction without the other factions knowledge or agreement.
  • Strike Wars

  • When factions choose to create numerous strike reports in the hopes of seeing a faction DQ’d. Mass strike reports fall under this rule. Strikes are managed by the strike team on Minecadia and the discretion for this rule will be left up to them.
  • Punishment:
  • DQ to all faction(s) involved
  • Abusing Shield

  • Exploiting your shield to protect anything but your base is strictly not allowed. This includes raiding cannons, cannons that are not inside your 20 chunk buffer, etc. Using reboots as an opportunity to adjust a shield also falls under this rule.
  • This also includes having alternating shields with your ally faction who lives in your base/buffer to prevent being raided. The faction and its ally who live in the same base/buffer must set their shield to turn on at the same time
  • This also includes creating and disbanding your faction every time your shield goes off the bypass the shield cooldown.
  • Abusing Raid Timer

  • Any attempt or exploiting your raid timer so competing factions are unable to shoot/raid is strictly prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to the example of using alt factions to "raid" your own base to keep the raid timer ongoing. Any attempt to by pass or find a loophole around this rule will fall under the "Common Sense" clause.
  • Punishment:
  • 2 Factions Strikes to Offending Faction + 7d Ban to Players Involved


  • Spawner Placement

  • Placing any sort of block (water, obsidian) next to or on spawners is prohibited. If a faction raids you and you have blocked spawners, they will receive all the blocked spawners from a staff.
  • Punishment:
  • Spawners removed and given to raiding faction + 1-2 Faction Strikes depending on the severity of illegal spawner placement.


  • Report Clarifications

    Video Evidence
  • All video clips need to have evidence of the players being in the faction they are accusing.
  • All video evidence needs to contain the Minecadia scoreboard.
  • All video evidence must be the full minecraft window.


  • NOTE: Any Administrator will have full rights to extend/reduce punishments beyond the "typical" duration. If felt appropriate by the Administrator, punishments can also be put in place for something that would negatively affect either the server, staff team, or other players' experience on the network.


    Grace Period

    B-Claims on Bases are strictly prohibited. A B-Claim is defined as any claim that interferes with a faction's intended base claim. If two base claims are in conflict with each other and one is a corner claim, the corner claimed base will take priority in this rule. Otherwise, the faction with the more members will take priority. This B-Claim rule is only enforced during the Grace Period on Minecadia.


    Definitions

    These are commonly confused terms used across this rules page. If you have any questions about any of these or you don’t see something on here that you have a question about, please make a support ticket in our discord and we can help you.

  • The buffer is measured from the exterior wall of your main base and does not include your base itself.This does not include any “member boxes” inside of your walls. Any “member boxes” inside of your walls is considered part of your buffer but does not redefine a point of a new buffer beginning.
  • A Raid Claim and an AntiRaid Claim is defined as any claim directly aligned with a base 2,000 blocks in any direction from that said base. For example, any claim 2,000 blocks North, South, East, or West of a base.
  • Flight Path is defined as the path tnt/sand travels from the cannon all the way to the wall including all the triangles it makes during that process.
  • A Barrell is defined as the point at which a cannon begins its triangle. This means that the barrel is where the power explodes sending the tnt/sand to the wall.
  • An Adjust is defined as the point at which a cannon triangles off a block that is being adjusted by a player. If there is a block that affects the triangle as it travels to the wall, this is defined as an adjust.
  • TNT Detectors are defined as any external program/bot that allows player(s)/faction(s) to determine/be notified exactly when TNT or Sand land inside of a faction’s claims. TNT Detectors are usually set up via a Discord bot that will alert you and your faction that you are being raided.
  • A Shot is defined as any time where both sand and a TNT hit a wall/regen UNLESS your cannon only fires TNT, in which case, that is considered your shot. Firing multiple shots at the same time is a violation of the 3 second rule. This includes shots that backstack, break walls, or anything outside of the original stack. The OSRB/Nuke/Dry Tunnel/Anti-Patch components of your shot are examples of where this rule does not apply.
  • A Raid is defined when there is an actual raid attempt being made, rather than shooting an irrelevant amount of TNT to set up a strike on another faction or to keep them on Raid Timer.
  • Y 255 is defined as the highest possible block that blocks can be placed on.
  • A Roof Cannon is defined as any cannon that shoots at or blows up at or above Y:255.0. This includes trying to bypass walls by shooting at or above Y:255.0.
  • A Mid-Air Cannon is defined as any cannon which does not require a backboard to stack from meaning they stack in MID-AIR using TNT and sand to create a stack where a normal cannon would be unable.
  • A UFusion Cannon is any cannon that has 2 separate powers in order to gain 2 separate triangle locations. This means a cannon that shoots its power and hammer to a new barrel location.
  • A Worm/Snake Cannon is a cannon that uses a downward triangle at bedrock while tunneling the previous stack in order to get sand to stack in a horizontal line.
  • A 'TNT Array' Cannon is a cannon that arrays tnt entities in-line with the cannon's shot in order to prevent patching at that coordinate as well as bypass all regens.
  • A Lofter Cannon is defined as a cannon that tunnels above 254.0 removing or going over the top of the walls.
  • An L-Stacker Cannon is defined as a cannon that shoots above 254.0 and triangles downwards.
  • A Push Cannon is any cannon that uses a TNT mechanic to push stack behind a regen. A cannon may not push sand behind a wall following the original shot. A cannon using multiple sand comps, multiple hammers, or other utilities to accomplish this push stacking method are deemed illegal on Minecadia. Cannons may backstack from walls behind a given regen but may not create a stack using a TNT mechanic lacking a backboard.
  • Left/Right Cannon is any cannon that adjusts its left or right direction after your cannon shot leaves your claims. This also includes any cannon that slides as it hits a wall. A cannon, when hitting a wall should not have any horizontal velocity that isn’t in line with the direction the cannon is being fired. For example, if a base is south of a cannon, the cannon shot should have no velocity in the East or West directions once it hits the wall.
  • A Phase cannon refers to a cannon that illegally bypasses or phases through walls. An illegal bypass is defined as a bypass enabled by either a bug or other exploit allowing a cannon to go through walls it otherwise would need to shoot through. Some bypasses that do not fall under this rule include “tunnel bypass” which means a tunnel effect to bypass certain regens is legal on Minecadia.
  • The end of a season is defined by the announcement made in the official Minecadia Discord. When an announcement is made labeling a time for either Spawner Placement/TNT to be disabled or a general EOTW, that marks the “end of the season.”

  • You cannot undermine/attempt to bypass any of the rules on this rule page.
