Insiding/Betrayal
A faction is viewed as a team and together as a team work towards a common goal.

When a player adds spawners (or a derp for example) to a base or faction claims they are adding into the faction pool. Those spawners are now considered property of the faction and not the player specifically.

  • Ceggs / TNT are disabled for faction members within important claims.
  • TNT is disabled for faction members within base claims
  • Dispensers are disabled for faction members within base claims
