Payout boosting:

Creating deals with other islands that include but are not limited to making loans to allow an island to get a higher position one week in exchange for the other island getting a higher position the next week. This is considered payout boosting.

PUNISHMENT: This will result in a DQ for both Islands trying to do this (1-week).

Alt Islands:

Alt Islands are prohibited, any island that has another island that contributes to a ‘main’ island is not allowed.

PUNISHMENT: This will result in a DQ for the main & alt island (1-week). Alt island will be completely removed including all value.

Island Merging:

Merging is considered the moving of value AND players to another island, if an island moves into another island it will be classified as merging. If an island would like to join another island, they must take NO value. You must take evidence of you destroying all value (alongside viewing pvs/enderchest) to prevent misunderstandings or contact a staff member to assist you. If player(s) decide to leave an island to create their own, they must not take any value with them as this would be insiding. An island may not move to another island but separate their value, this will be considered merging. Giving value to another island (by moving spawners or supporting them with money) will be classified as merging, and the receiving island will be punished.

NOTE: You must notify a staff-member that you wish to merge your island. Failure to do so will result in 50% of total island value removed. Teams aren't not allowed to merge islands until the realm is 7-day old.

PUNISHMENT: This will result in a DQ for the main & alt island (1-week). Alt island will be completely removed including all value + 1x Strike (value removed from main island).

Island Insiding:

Island Insiding is considered the act of either planning to Grief (with sufficient evidence that it will be carried out), Griefing and/or Looting of anyone's own Island whether it by them or through another Player (alts included).

PUNISHMENT: All players that are apart of the island inside will be permanently banned. Items will be returned to the island.

Hiding Value:

Hiding Value is classified as hiding any value that contributes to /is top value from appearing on is top. This may include putting it in chests, storing in echests ect. Balances are not considered hiding value. For an island to be punished there needs to be at least 20% of value hidden.

PUNISHMENT: This will result in a island DQ (1-week) + 1x Strike (value removed from main island).

Island Rotation:

Islands are not permitted to rotate members to bypass the island member limit. Once a member is on the island, they must remain unless they are kicked or leave. Island Rotation is classified as if a single player leaves and rejoins an island twice within a week.

PUNISHMENT: 1x Strike (value removed from main island).
