    We are reviving our War Declaration as an optional feature to facilitate the PVP environment. A faction does not need a War Declaration to raid another faction. Use this form on MassiveCraft’s forums to submit a War Declaration. You can expect staff to review your thread within a few days after you post it.

    Note: Raid rules, tribute and other factors concerning just raiding will not be affected at all. The raiding system and its rules work as intended and are not presenting any problems.

    How does a war declaration work?
    If you are raiding a faction, you may now also officially declare war on the faction using The War declaration form. This does not alter any of the already existing rules for PvP and raiding which you can find here: Warfare Rules. You may declare war on any faction you are raiding by submitting a war declaration, this will give you the chance to get a Victoryprize at the end of a war if you win and Victory status on the forums.

    Victory Prizes:
    The victors of a war will recieve the following prizes if they have an active War Declaration on the losing faction:
    • A unique, handcrafted War Trophy Item commemorating their victory.
    • Victory status on the forums
    Surrender:
    • After the 1 month (30 day) surrender truce, you may raid the losing faction again, BUT you may NOT make another War Declaration until 1 more month (60 days total).
    • To be clear, once a faction surrenders if you have a war declaration, you must wait 1 month (30 days) to raid the faction again, and you must wait 2 months (60 days) to make another War Declaration on the faction.
    • Max tribute constitutes a 1 month (30 day) truce between both factions. The surrendering side may always break the truce whenever it pleases them. The declaring side may never break a truce.
    • A surrender with max tribute is always enforced. You may not surrender in the name of others, and neither may you accept a surrender in the name of others. Surrender terms may only be issued and accepted by War Leaders, and Max Tribute is an automatic surrender and enforced truce. Other surrender terms are optional and subject to negotiation.
    On Alliance wars:
    The following point is only relevant to you if you plan to use allies in your war. You may ignore it if you fight alone and your target is also alone.Factions may declare wars as coordinated alliances. Factions coordinating their attacks on a single or multiple factions are seen as an alliance.
    • Note 1: War Leaders are the players that represent all other members of a Faction Alliance. In most cases, this would mean the faction that posts the war declaration and the receiving faction that is declared war upon.
    • Note 2: War Leader status may be swapped during the war but only by the active War Leader.
    • Note 3: Swapping War Leaders does not alter the Tribute, and neither does declaring war as an alliance. This rule in place to prevent people from loopholing the system to demand more money from a single faction meanwhile coordinating their attacks to provide unified pressure.
    • Note 4: Only War Leaders may accept surrenders or issue them. War Members may never surrender individually unless the opposing War Leader agrees to it. This prevents allied factions from selectively forcing factions out of the war.
    • Note 5: A truce is enforced for all members of either alliance if a surrender is made. Any member of the surrendering alliance may break the truce whenever it pleases them, and it will break the truce for all opposing factions. The surrendering factions who did not break their truce, however, will retain their truce. The winning side may never break any truces.
    • Note 6: If you as a member disagree with your War Leader surrendering or accepting a surrender, then that is your own fault, and you should have picked better allies or not entered an allied war effort.
    • Note 7: You do not need to be part of the allied war effort at the start of the war. Any faction may join a war effort at any time on any side, however, this decision is permanent until the war ends either way or until the opposing War Leader agrees to their departure from the war.
    On loopholing:
    Breaking the rules or trying to find loopholes around the system for your own benefit will be punished. If at any point you feel your opposing side is trying to loop hole around the war declaration rules and especially the Alliance rules, you should report this on the forum.

    On alternate accounts:
    Alternate accounts will be overlooked in most cases when it comes to Tribute calculations. The exception is if a faction is clearly artificially increasing or decreasing the tribute by adding more than reasonable amounts of alts to their faction. If a player suspects this happening, they should report it, and the offender will be punished and their alts permanently banned.

    General Raid information:
    For an easier time understanding the raid rules we have incorporated the main raid rules and tribute rules here. These raid rules apply even if you do not have a war declaration!
    • Keep civil and calm during wars. Do not insult or troll.
    • Max Tribute will instantly end a war. When the payment is made, a truce is made.
    • Truces are always a minimum of 30 days.
    • You may change the surrender terms of truce if both sides agree.
    • A surrendering side may always break the truce after the war is over.
    • You may raid any individual faction from 3-5 hours daily, but there is no limit to how many factions you can raid each day. You could raid 24/7, switching between factions.
    • Staff may intervene if a war is fought unfairly, by the staff’s understanding.
    Tribute Rule:
    • The max tribute in a war between Faction A and Faction B is always 300 plus the number of members of the smallest faction times 50. This means if a 2 member faction declares war on a 10 member faction, the max tribute is 300 + 2x50= 400 Regals.
      • Note: You may still offer custom demands such as roleplay items or resources. However, the value of these demands may not exceed the max tribute and may not include forced character death, kicking of faction members, or unclaiming homelands.
      • Note: It is always encouraged to offer more than one demand to offer variety and choices for the surrendering factions.
    Surrender Terms:
    • Max tribute constitutes a 1 month (30 day) truce between both factions. The surrendering side may always break the truce whenever it pleases them. Thedeclaring side may never break a truce. Custom truce days may be agreed upon but are not enforceable with max tribute.
    • A surrender with max tribute is always enforced. You may not surrender in the name of others, and neither may you accept a surrender in the name of others. Surrender terms may only be issued and accepted by War Leaders, and Max Tribute is an automatic surrender and enforced truce. Other surrender terms are optional and subject to negotiation.
