I've changed the rules a lot on the wiki, also added a few new ones that may be controversial but which I hope will make the battles more interesting. One is max build height not above the flags, to avoid giant pillars and flooding each other in lava from abovem, which creates a big mess (and having the whole flagpole covered in lava creates a dubious situation for where to place the new flag, I considered saying that you'd have to remove the lava first, but then realized that it could be exploited by the defenders to bathe their flagpole in lava and then force the enemies to remove it, even though the defending team could just be banned from it, I think it was better simply to do away with the situation this way).

Also reduced battle time from 30 to 20 minutes, because it seems like 20 minutes is at a more balanced point from the previous battles. I also think making the battle shorter will hopefully give people time to fight more battles and make them easier to arrange. I am open to changing this parameter in the future however, if it turns out to be too little time to conquer zones in most battles, it will be increased again.
