You are responsible for all activity on your account and from your IP. -We don't care if your cat was on your account and called someone a sausage.

  1. Be polite & respectful to players (no trolling, harassing, bullying, etc).
    1. Respect other players. If you’re angry against a player, use a pirate insult, nothing else.
    2. Do not try to troll players and do not attack a player repeatedly without a valid reason.
    3. Do not abuse permissions, donator or otherwise, in order to gain an advantage in combat, specifically the back command.
  2. Anything any member of staff says, goes.
    1. Do not contest staff decisions.
    2. Do not ask a second staff member when you get an answer you don't like.
    3. If you have a problem, contact the concerned staff member by private message on the website. If you have not received an answer after a few days, then create a polite and respectful support ticket on the forums.
  3. No hacking, cheating or exploiting glitches. No client mod(s).
    1. Do not hack, cheat or use glitches.
    2. Do not use any minecraft client modification (Apart from Optifine).

      1. Do not open a chest through glass, bars, or iron doors.
      2. Do not use a cart/boat to glitch through a door.
    7. Xray is a bannable offence. Do not use it.
  4. No begging. Ever.

    3. No buildings or shops can be set up near spawn in any world. Try to move away from eyesight of spawn before claiming/building.
    4. No Building adjacent to server owned/claimed builds (warps, aqueduct, cove, etc). With staff approval you may build pirate themed builds in these locations.
    5. No building adjacent to any other claim unless all parties agree, try to keep some distance.
      1. This rule can vary by staff discretion, but generally if you can see their claimed area from yours, you may be too close.
    6. Do not set a home for intentions of raiding or killing another player. Only set home's you intend to use for a home.
  6. No advertising at all.
    1. No advertising for websites, no advertising for servers, no advertising for mods/games/whatever : no advertising at all.
      1. People find this bit hard to understand. Don't advertise, just don't mention any server on PirateCraft, don't even type it. Thanks.
    2. Do not ask someone to join you in another server
    3. Do not say another servers name in global chat.
  7. Do not game stats, bounties or abuse game mechanics.

    2. Do not repeatedly break blocks to increase your stats.
      1. This includes placing seeds, torches or any block constantly and rebreaking it over and over.
    3. Do not use any method to circumvent automatic afk-kicking. e.g. afk pools, anti-afk clients etc.
    4. Do not ask people if you can kill them for their bounties, or plan with them to share the money.
  8. Scamming and blackmail.
    1. Scamming is allowed, however abuse of game or plugin mechanics to scam is forbidden, see rule 7.

    2. These rules aren’t exhaustive.
    3. If something doesn’t appear in these rules but seems like it should be forbidden, then it probably is!
    4. Ask staff members if in doubt.

Raiding & PvP Rules

  1. Do not use a Nether Portal to raid someone.
  2. Do not use the /back command following a PvP death, /tpa or /tpahere is ok.
  3. Do not use ships/turrets to power redstone or modify a claim.
    1. Only time this is acceptable is if you are stealing a ship which isn't properly secured i.e. no double chest or piston lock.
  4. Be respectful about loosing a siege
    1. If you lose a siege do not repeatedly hit a player while you are naked when they are in your claim.
    2. Do not constantly keep a player TP tagged if you loose a siege so they cant tp out. You must allow them to leave. You are supposedly dead after all, you lost a siege. Act dead.
    3. If you win a siege do not keep attempt to kill/harm the person you won against. If they are naked and doing nothing leave them alone. If they keep punching you, protect yourself and tell staff immediately.
