HCF stands for Hardcore Factions. This should be quite self-explanatory from now; basically, it's a more hardcore version of standard Factions, which can be found on servers such as the Archon. Everything is different about it, from the base style of PVP, all of the way to the competitiveness and the base designs that factions adopt. HCF tends to be more competitive than normal factions, as I previously mentioned, with factions competing against one another to be the very best. actions are able to claim land depending on how many people are in the faction. Factions can only go 'raidable' when they are sent to negative DTR (Deaths until Raidable) by killing a certain amount of their players. You CANNOT build or destroy inside of faction land, nor shoot TNT to raid it. TNT Cannons are NOT buildable like on standard Factions, therefore bases tend to look pretty rather than durable also Traps are often made around bases, and vary in types.When the map starts you'll have to run out and get a good claim that's close to spawn (You cannot claim land 100 blocks or so around spawn, so bases that're closer to spawn are better as they're easier to run to since spawn is found around the cords 0,0.
You'll also want to try and travel to the nether and end for some epearl and xp grinding because everything you get on this server will be made by you and your team we dont provide kits etc.. all tho on this map gear can be enchanted over protection 2 sharpness 3 power 4 this is so the best gear in the game is easier to obtain and used to fight others in this server. This is a hardcore server and every player has power ''dtr'' each player has 10 power each player that joins you is +10 power so a team of 2 would be 20 power and a team of 3 would be 30 power etc. Now when you die you lose -2 power and if you get a legit kill you get +1 power and if your power falls below half your total power so for example a solo faction would have 12/10 power (solos get +2 extra power) so if you drop below 5 your claim disappears and you are now raidable and cannot reclaim that land. Claims are jukeboxs you simply make a box in the ground around your base and then put a DTR/Power tracker on the corner of your claim and bingo you have yourself a plot of land that only your team and only your team can edit or break or open inside that claim but likewise for other teams claims but the faction max is 3 so the max power is 30 and you can't team outside your team unless to even a fight etc however solos have the right to ally with other factions because there again solo.
When you join the server read both the books one is called the rule book the other is the HCF book!
Im looking for good trustable mature players that can do well on a hardcore faction server if you think that's you please come and join but remember everyones fighting to be the best... Every death lowers your power and gets you closer to being raidable.. Everyone outside your team is out for blood and loot and you start with very little and the shops wont provide diamonds BUT even with all that HCF is still very fun as long as you play it smart.
Common HCF terms/phrases
They're the basics for gameplay, so lets get into some common terms in HCF that you'll need to understand that should help you out:
SOTW: This means Start of the World. It basically refers to when a new map starts, which is normally a day after a map ends.
EOTW: End of the World, which means that this is the event of the map, where all faction bases are unclaimed, and a KOTH styled capture point is at spawn where factions compete to try and be crowned as the EOTW Winners.
LFF: This means 'Looking for a Faction'. You will see a lot of this on the Forums and in-game. If a player is looking for a faction for HCF then they'll often make a post listing their different skills, and past factions to try and get an invite to one.
Basebitching / BB: A basebitch, is basically someone who sits in the base often and is required to brew potions for the faction, grind armor, or go out and mine. These tend to be the friendliest people in the faction. For some reason people find this fun; personally it's not my thing, but whatever floats your boat!
Kite: To run from a fight, to a determined place, whether you're kiting to your base, or to a trap, or even to spawn.
Quickdrop: This means that a player died to another player whilst they had potions on them. It tends to be used when the player has more than 5 potions on them.
Power Faction: A faction that has the maximum number of players in it, which tends to vary from map to map.
Farm: If you are farming then you're often in the End, grinding the creepers & endermen for supplies.
Pearl block / Pearl cooldown: After a player has pearled, he cannot do so for another 15 seconds or so. Therefore if their pearl is blocked by another player, then they'll most likely end up using a lot of potions in an attempt to escape. If a player is on pearl cooldown then they've just pearled, and should be targeted in a fight, as they cannot escape using an enderpearl.
Focus/ed: If a player is focusing another, or being focused, it means that they are being singled out of the group, and will receive the most damage. This may happen because they are the Faction leader and will be the one making the callouts, because they are bad and use pots very fast, because they're on pearlcooldown, and many other reasons. Focusing is pretty efficient to do damage quickly to another player.
Yes PC gameplay but still minecraft and still is 100% what im going for
