Failure to comply may lead to a partial or complete restriction to aforementioned services. With your cooperation, we can ensure that the network is a safe and healthy environment for all players.

    Note that joking about or pretending to break any of the following rules may result in the same punishment as if the player were actually breaking the rule.

    Disclaimer:

    ♦ The rules stated below are not, in any way, an exhaustive list of offences that are punishable.
    ♦ Any changes may be made to the following thread without prior notice.
    ♦ Players are expected to familiarize themselves with the rules upon utilizing any of our services;
    - "I didn't know that was against the rules" will not be accepted as an appeal or excuse in any case.
    ♦ Warnings are a precaution against clueless new players and do NOT have to be given out against players who clearly know what they're doing.
    ♦ Staff is only required to keep proof of your ban for 7 days after your ban was issued. Any complains after that time won't be reviewed.
