Attempting to bypass this by using an alt will be deemed as a violation of this rule. The punishment goes to the faction that the player(s) joined. Logging on to other players accounts to bypass this rule will result in the same punishment to the faction that benefits. This rule also applies when attacking/defending raid outpost.

  • Undermining the Spirit of the Game

  • Players who attempt and or successfully disrupt, abuse, glitch, exploit, etc. in any way that would be deemed as unintended gameplay will be subject to punishment per Management’s discretion.


  • Raiding Outpost Rules

  • As the raid timer is 5 minutes for the Raiding Outpost, certain rules such as the gen patching rule is reduced to 5 mins as well.
  • All normal cannoning and base rules apply to the raiding outpost world. The punishments will be half of what they are above, based on severity, which is up to the strike teams discretion. For example- Since you must adhere to the Raid Cooldown rule in the other dimensions, you must also follow the same rule at raiding outpost, along with every other rule. If you are the defending faction, you must follow all defending rules such as the Illegal Patching & AntiRaid claim rules, and if you are the attacking faction, you must follow all attacking rules such as the Raid Cooldown Rule or Disallowed Cannons Rule.
  • You cannot claim prematurely on any sides of the raiding outpost base when you are the defending faction. In order to put external claims under your faction name, another faction must initiate a raid on the raiding outpost base through either setting up a claim or setting up a cannon, box, etc. The attacking faction must prompt a raid in order for you to claim for the intention of countering. Putting random claims in the world for the intention of blocking other factions from making cannons there or gaining a position to use for countering later is not allowed.
  • Making premade counters as the defending faction is not allowed at Raiding Outpost anywhere. You can only make counters after a faction has initiated a raid through claiming or making a cannon. After a cannon has been used for countering, and the attacking faction leaves, you must unclaim those claims to ensure you aren’t leaving any claims where other factions may need it as such.
  • You cannot modify the Raiding Outpost base in any way as the defending faction. Just like in the other dimensions, you cannot add/change walls or regens or claims, you cannot do that here either. The raiding outpost base must stay the same amount of claims, same amount of walls, and same amount of regens. You are allowed the fix the existing regens after an attacking faction leaves.
  • You cannot camp and kill players at the Raiding Outpost Warp. Meaning, you cannot sit at the warp on top of the Raiding Outpost Base and wait for players to warp there and kill them instantly.
  • Punishment:
  • 1 Warning + 3d ban to players involved
  • Report Clarifications

    Discord Proof Clarification

  • 2 - Record evidence
  • 3 - Restart discord: Ctrl + Alt + Delete -> Task Manager -> Right Click Discord -> End Task -> Click Discord

    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 2 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.
