Explanation of claiming rule:

Image of this theoretical claim:

  You are also not permitted to have claims outside of your designated chunk in front of a base, or behind a raid claim, such as PvP single claims. Each faction has the right to an imaginary 6x(width) claim size, and this can not be exceeded, even if you don’t use the full allowance. All your chunks must be claimed in this 6x(width) area. There may be no extra chunks claimed by you in front of the base. E.g if you were to claim a 5x10 sized chunk, you could only extent to 6 chunks directly in front of or behind that claim. There can be no claims outside of your claim.

            ➤ Hiding Spawners

 ● You shouldn’t try to hide your spawners so that other factions will struggle to find them. A large portion of this game is about base building and raiding. Hiding spawners outwith a base removes an element of the gamemode, and is therefore not allowed. E.g spreading spawners across a large area outwith a base is not permitted.

Keeping spawners in ender chests, chests, and player vaults is allowed, only placing spawners in places like single chunk holes in wilderness is not allowed - this rule only applies to PLACED spawners.
