    What is a buffer?
    A buffer is the amount of claims around your base, it's measured from the wall around your base outwards. (Not including the base)


    How many walls are we allowed?
    A 20 chunk limit of 160 genned walls, or 320 blocks.


    Does it matter which faction claims the land?
    No it does not. Regardless of the faction, the 20 chunk buffer limit is still in place, whether you own the claims around your base or not.


    Is there any exceptions?
    The only exception to this rule are cannons built outside the 20 chunk claim radius. Other factions that are attempting to raid you are allowed to claim their cannons outside the other faction's buffer.


    What happens if we break this rule?
    If your base has a higher buffer than 20 chunks, the following could happen depending on the situation:
    • You'll be notified and asked to fix your claims, you then have two days to fix your claims.
    • If the faction does not fix their claims within the two days given by the staff member, their base will be unclaimed.

    How should I report a faction breaking the 20 chunk buffer rule?
    If you find a faction that has more than 20 chunk buffer, please submit a player report HERE

    Are we allowed to make a suggestion by taking away or increasing the buffer rule ? because i feel like alot of factions dis-agree with this

    may you also add this on "news" because alot of people do not look at this because i only found out from a staffmember ty matthew

    This was put in so people wouldn't make big bases that would take a long time to raid, and this rule is on every other faction server.

    Is it possible to bypass this rule by having a seperate faction base be built infront of your walls ? basically re-seting the buffer rule for that faction ?
