These rules were set with the agreement of the server team. Occasional changes are immediately binding and it is mandatory for all players to comply.

- We reserve the right to temporarily take over the account of a user and to validate reports of suspicion.
- If an already punished account is validly prosecuted more than once, the account will be locked permanently.
- For the purposes of this section, suspicion will amount to either a report by another player or the belief, by the Staff, that the member is acting in a manner which strays from the Rules.
§4 - Community

- Accordingly, it is not permitted to harass, denounce, expose or threaten a player mentally/physically. This applies for the in-game chat, forum and Server owned Discord Server.

- Don't try to benefit from personally knowing a team member. Team members are generally advised to never talk about current developments within the staff team.
- Don't bother a team member with item and/or penya wishes. This only reduces the teams responsiveness and can, if repeated, lead to a temporary deactivation of the in-game chat or even a temporary ban.
- Information from team members may not be passed to other players. This includes things such as which exact items a player has and what effects they have, who is behind an anonymous name, who was banned and for what reason etc; any team member who infringes this rule will be banned permanently from his position.
§6 - Recovery of Items
- Generally, no items are returned, whether it is the players fault or not. This means that no items are returned in the following cases:
- Rollbacks/Server crashes

- Discard or selling for the wrong price
- Guild bank
- Shared account
- The only exception to this rule is when you lose a shop item. In this case you are allowed to ask for the retrieval of the lost item. This rule can only be used once per user. The shop item will only be retrieved if the item is lost on one of the accounts of the original buyer.

- Joining Guild Siege or Guild Clash for the sole purpose permanently hindering a player from playing the game (by using CC skills, spamming them, etc), without your own Guild being able to capitalise on your game play is considered toxic behaviour and is not permitted and will lead to exclusions from playing Guild Siege or Guild Clash.
- Joining Guild Siege or Guild Clash for the sole purpose of farming Siege Medals or Guild Clash Medals will lead to a temporary ban.
- Joining Guild Siege or Guild Clash to AFK, having the intention to lose all your lives as quickly as possible or being lined up despite not providing your Guild with any positives is considered to be not in the spirit of competition and will lead to temporary exclusions from Guild Siege, Guild Clash or the game.

§15 - Interserver Trading
- Any and all trades that involve the transfer of wealth from the "main" server to the "Season" server and vice versa are completely forbidden. Specifically, you are not allowed to offer any items or currency/wealth you have on the "main" server to "buy" yourself an advantage on the "Season" server. The same applies to the other way around. You are not allowed to offer items or currency/wealth from the "Season" server in exchange for "main" server items to possibly get them at a discounted rate.
- Purchasing Season CWT on someone else's account in exchange for items or currency/wealth from the "main" server is forbidden, as it is just a "loophole" to rule §15.1. Depending on the severity of the infraction, the staff team might permanently remove any of the items and/or currency/wealth involved in the trade.
- Any advertisement for such trades on any platform, including any of our officially recognised trading spots (§10.2), will lead to an exclusion from said places or the game.
