Factions Rules

Hello everyone,

In addition to the global server rules found here, the following rules apply to our Factions gamemode.

Please be aware that our rules can change at any time, it is your responsibility to ensure that you are knowledgeable about all rules and all changes.


One corner per Faction

Factions can only claim one corner. Additionally, inactive corners or corners claimed for the sole purpose of selling the claim for IRL money will be unclaimed.

If found to be breaking this rule, the rule-breaking chunks will be unclaimed.

Alternate Factions

Alternate accounts or factions cannot be used to evade any of these rules.

If found to be breaking this rule, one of the following punishments will occur (where applicable):

  • Disband of alternate faction
  • The main faction will receive the appropriate punishment that the alternative faction would have received
  • Restoration of main faction’s warnings to the alternate faction (if an alternate faction has been made so that a faction can start afresh without previous warnings)

Nuisance Claims

Any faction attempting to inhibit another faction from reaching their full 15 claim buffer (in any direction, directly N/E/S/W or diagonally from the base) will have their claims removed by an upper staff member, assuming the claims are not being actively used. (We will define "actively used" by checking block history to see whether or not a cannon has been made and used in the last 24 hours.)

If an attacking faction claims land and makes use of it to make an active attempt to raid your base, they then have a right to those claims as they exist for a purpose other than simply blocking the defending faction. If your claims have been unreasonably blocked by another faction, reach out to a staff member and you will be assisted.

Factions that leave nuisance claims will be verbally warned once as their claims are removed, and subsequent offences will warrant faction warnings.

F-Top Addendum

If you’re using additional bases to spread out your f-top value to the extreme and for the sake of making your value virtually “unraidable” - we will take action against you.

You may merge or split for the first week of the grace period. Any other merging or splitting after the grace period has ended will be considered illegal merging & splitting and will be punished accordingly. Please approach staff for specifics on what you can and can’t do if you aren’t 100% sure.

If you were kicked or you left your faction, you may not bring any of that faction’s f-top value with you to a new faction. Please try to do this before the grace period ends in order to be considered for the f-top contest.

A faction going for F-Top rewards is defined as an entity of players under a single faction name, however, their alt factions will also be taken into consideration when calculating the F-Top winners. If you want to have multiple factions, please create them at the start of the season and as two separate factions. Splitting later on in the map may be subject to punishment.

Illegal Raiding

A blanket term for anything illegal while attempting to or raiding another base or countering a cannon.

Raid Claims

When planning a raid you (or anyone in coordination with you) may not claim more than a 10x10 area for your cannon box and the walls that surround it. Opposing factions should not have to work exceedingly hard to breach your cannon box and end your raid.

Factions found with excessively large raid claims will have the claims removed, and their faction will be given a verbal or official warning depending on if the claim was abused while raiding.

Raid claims (10x10 max area) need to have a 7 chunk buffer on at least one side to allow a defending faction to build a counter cannon. If you want to build a cannon next to another raider, it needs to be 7 chunks away from the edge of another cannon box.

Any raid claim that has been inactive for 24 hours is subject to removal (but not necessarily subject to a warning point). Should there be a raid claim inactive for 24 hours, please message a senior member of staff to remove them.


Only allied factions are allowed to actively interfere in a raid. Allies must be allied for at least one shield cycle to be considered legal interference.

Any other relation is able to spectate with no involvement.

Factions illegally interfering in raids will receive an official warning.

Illegal Cannons & Semtexing

There are only a few cannon technologies disallowed on LemonCloud:

  • Auto cannons
  • A cannon capable of destroying more than one wall per button press
  • Semi auto cannons
  • Cannons that shoot at or above the world height limit or a base roof
  • Left/right cannons
  • Worms
  • Y1 Tunnelers

You cannot raid a base with a claimed cannon while on shield. You cannot use multiple cannons at once.

Raid Alert Technology

Any software that acts to inform your faction that your base may be under attack is disallowed.

Illegal Defending

Illegal Walls & Blocks

You cannot protect your base with illegal walls, illegal blocks, or blocks which are unraidable.

Disallowed blocks include waterlogged blocks, cobwebs, fence posts and gates, anvils, crying obsidian, and banners.

Disallowed walls currently include reverse 45s (completely disallowed) and regular 45s (one per side base maximum).

15 Chunk Buffer Limit

A buffer is defined as the claims around, but not including, your base. It is measured from the first chunk outside the shell of your base itself, outwards - but does not include the base itself. You may claim 15 chunks in each direction stemming outwards from your base.

You may place additional claims to defend yourself against a raiding faction as long as those claims are not in-between the opposing cannon and your base. This said, the expectation is that as soon as the enemy faction removes their offensive claims, you as the defending faction will remove yours as well. If you're found using an alt or supporting faction to increase your buffer claims beyond 15, you may be punished.

If your faction is found breaking this rule you will be warned, or if you are not online, your claims will be forcibly removed by server staff. Repeated offences will warrant a faction warning.


Only allied factions are allowed to actively interfere in a raid. Allies must be allied for at least one shield cycle to be considered legal interference.

Any other relation is able to spectate with no involvement.

Factions illegally interfering in raids will receive an official warning.

Illegal Patching

Patching with Printer or Gen Buckets no matter if you are the attacker or the defender. Do not patch with these items until after 10 minutes of the last cannon shot. You cannot patch in the wilderness.

Watering & Boxing Spawners

If you are caught blocking off/placing water on your spawners to protect them from being taken during a raid, warnings may be issued and we may take some spawners away from your base. Water limits the number of spawners that factions can loot during a raid. Additionally, enclosing spawners in boxes that contain no air gaps between the walls and spawners is also disallowed.
