Claiming your Factions Territory
In order to claim some land, you will have to go to the wilderness, often called by veteran players, "the wild". The wild is located on the Factions map server! More on the wilderness, read about it here.
Once you arrive in the wilderness, you can start claiming a chunk. "A chunk is a 256-block tall 16×16 segment of a Minecraft world. Chunks are the method used by the world generator to divide maps into manageable pieces." (Minecraft Wiki)
Claiming a piece of land:
Simple just type /f claim
After typing this command in the Wilderness, you should get a message in your chat;
Congratulations you have claimed your first piece of Factions land!
This means, that when you claim a chunk, (piece of land) no one other than yourself and your faction members will be able to built, grief or take anything from inside that land. It's your so-called protection.
Beware! There are many ways in which another Faction can still lay its hand on your land and valuables, by shooting TNT at your Faction land from the Wilderness around your land for example. This is called raiding. You are completely allowed to do this in the Factions Server and vice versa! This is what makes Factions in Minecraft such an interesting competitive game mode!
You have to work together with others, socialize, defend, organize raids and so on! Welcome to Factions Minecraft player, I hope your ready!
Made a mistake?
No worries! Happens to the best type /f unclaim to remove the chunk of your Factions Territory!
