    We are imposing a 20 chunk buffer limit to all faction claims. This means that from the center of your base, you may not have more than 20 consecutive claims that would require people to cannon from over 20 chunks away.

    Unofficially this has sort of always been the case, now we're making it official. Please bring to the attention of myself or RagingDouche any excessive buffer claims, but as far as we're aware this currently does not affect anyone.

    Are alt factions allowed for extra claims?

    You can use alt factions for extra claim as long as it's within the limit. So, regardless of how many factions you use to make up your base, you need to make sure the total buffer does not exceed 20.

    I understand how some people might see this as cheesy because alt factions for buffer don't risk being overclaimed but realistically there's no good way to regulate this and overclaiming isn't the only way to raid a base so we're okay with it.

    You said this wouldn't get nerfed until reset.

    There is no reset planned currently. There are also no factions currently taking advantage of buffers greater than 20 chunks. There's no need to wait for a reset to enforce this.

    It was set to UTC. I've just now set it to EST since most players are NA East. You can also personalize your time zone if you hover over your name in the top right and go to Preferences.

    So if faction A claims up to the 20, faction B can't claim adjacent chunks?

    You can temporarily for raiding purposes. But you can not permanently claim. We'll come up with complete details on what you can and can't do with buffers.
