When you join our network by registering an account, you agree to our conditions and rules stated in this post.
"I didn't know," or "I didn't read the rules," are not valid justifications. Depending on the case, we will apply the same punishments in the same way to everyone who breaks the rules.

Remember to check this post at least once every 2 weeks as its rules and punishments may change!

(if you're looking for the forum rules click here: viewtopic.php?f=50&t=35964 )

After numerous and repeated offenses that may vary from player to player you will get the maximum punishment (except the ban) of the category skipping all the lower punishments.
After 60 or more offenses you will be permanently banned from the server.
We will consider your offenses in your past 90 days. No more resets at predefined dates, now you're forced to always behave correctly.

Our servers rules and punishments are as follows:
Please note that the following punishments are just indicative, depending on the case we can chose to apply different punishments.

Cheating, Hacking, Using unallowed mods, Exploiting, etc.
These offenses will almost certainly be punished with a straight permanent ban. (We'll make sure to retain the evidence up to a month, we won't grant anything past that period of time)
Here you can find the list of allowed and disallowed mods:

Chat Offenses
The chat moderation will consider public chat, private chat and server specific chats such as Factions chat, plot chat, party chat, etc.

Acting uncivilized, begging, spamming, flooding (or causing flood/spam), using caps, hackusations (accusing someone for using hacks), being racist/sexist/etc., command trolling ("do /ci", "do /lo", etc), name calling, swearing evading the censor (and/or swearing in other languages), pretending to be a staff member, spamming asking for rankups, hashtag abuse, disrespecting, inciting to suicide or to any other kind of harmful behavior, indecency, sexual harassment and any other kind of behavior that might ruin in any way the game experience of someone else or that will be considered as inappropriate can be punished as follows:

[+] Click to show/hide the punishments
● 1st offense: warn
● 2nd offense: 30 minutes of mute
● 3rd offense: 1 hour of mute
● 4th offense: 6 hours of mute
● 5th offense: 12 hours of mute
● 6th+ offense: 1 day of mute

[+] Note 1
If you're not sure if a word is a swear word or not click here and search it in this list: if it's present then it means there's a high chance you can't say it.
Evading the censor will lead to an instant mute.
[+] Note 2
Acronyms, with or without swear words, are allowed (wtf, tf, ffs, etc) as long as they're not disrespectful. (Smd, kys, etc)
[+] Note 3
Usually spam is the repetition of a word 3 or more times within 5 minutes.

Advertising or sharing websites, servers, channels and links leading to inappropriate and/or adult content and/or content related to other servers, threatening, blackmailing, sharing pro-terrorism and/or controversial content, admitting to hack/use not allowed mods (even as joke), admitting to be breaking a rule (that can be punished with ban), having an inappropriate/offensive name, ban evading can be punished with a permanent ban depending on the case.

Note: ban evading will inevitably lead to the rejection of all your ban appeals, current and future.

Note: If you'll have any sort of unauthorized modification during the screenshare you'll be banned even if not used in the current session.
Note: You must report someone for disclosing info within 3 days from the disclosure.
Reporting later simply will be considered as not an issue.
