    Do you prefer the thrill of raiding bases with tnt and getting to the loot of a seemingly impenetrable base or making really nice castles riddled with player traps and pvping to gain territory over others making your land bigger and dominating over others?

    They are two VERY different gamemodes and I don't want it to be either one or the other, finding a compromise of both is also extremely difficult.

    What I think would be the ideal option (though a lot of work) would be two seperate servers with a gamemode each.

    I personally believe we as a cubecraft community need something original, something no other server has.

    Don't get me wrong i love making sand stackers and blowing up regens and sand walls etc.. but this is the most common way faction is played if we are going to be successful in this operation and ultimately make profit we need new ideas to work with.

    I do like the idea of PvP'ing to gain power over territory but. i believe this would encourage "trolls" people joining a faction to purposely make them lose power for a friend to overclaim.

    Another point is that people with blacklisted modifications would be extremely over-powered in the PvP idea as they would typically win a duel either defending oor attacking. I know I'm stating the obvious but i believe this would make the game very unbalanced.

    I also believe a compromise between both ideas is ultimately impossible to achieve.

    To be honest I'm puzzled, I truly want something new and original which is balanced and does not look tempting for trolls and insiders.

    Chosing the members of your faction is part of factions, insiding is a part of factions you cannot take away.

    A good 1.9 pvp Factions server is very very rare to find. They are nearly all still in 1.8.
    I have the same opinion, canoning is better for the existing 1.8 servers, what would make cubecraft original would have to be the 1.9 pvp.
    We have mods and every member is able to report hackers that will get banned. This isn't an issue specific to factions.

    Other than that, I'd love to hear your response and curious to know what @HackersDontWin thinks ?

    I will gladly respond. I love to hear other opinions!

    To start off I totally agree with you that we would be an original faction server due to the fact most are 1.8 and i would like to believe we are the best 1.9 + server in minecraft.

    Although not much would be different because a cannon is a cannon, Depending on the allowed cannons for 1.9.

    To pick up on your quote " Chosing the members of your faction is part of factions, insiding is a part of factions you cannot take away."
    I strongly agree with you and there is nothing that can change that, I was just stating my point.

    Secondly, Your quote " I have the same opinion, cannoning is better for the existing 1.8 servers, what would make cubecraft original would have to be the 1.9 pvp. "
    Maybe it would be better if we did not have your typical raiding server, maybe it could be PvP orientated as we are one of the top 1.9 servers I believe this would make us original as i know cubecraft aim to be. I am drifting towards the idea of PvP based factions but i am not 100% sure how it would work.

    I just want to play a good factions world. I think a post from a Mod+ should be posted to get the communities opinion because at the end of the day this is what we are playing.

    Also one last question would the mod " Schematica " be allowed for factions?
