Below you may find all the guidelines for both the forums and in-game. If you
see anyone whom you believe to be breaking these, alert a staff member as soon
as possible, or, if a staff member is not available, obtain proof in the form
of screen shots or FRAPs and report the matter privately by messaging a staff
member on the forums. Please refer to the Terms of Service for usage
There are various levels of punishment for different infringements; please
refer to "Punishment Categories" for more specific information.
Applicable categories will be listed next to each guideline;
if no level is listed, then level two applies.

itself; refer to these if you are unsure.
Swearing at people or otherwise disrespecting them is not permitted under
Avoid spamming the forums. This includes, but is not limited to, posting
the same message repeatedly and posting pointless messages.
The use of excessive punctuation and smilies should be avoided; one or two
is more than enough.
Posting inappropriate images on the forums is less amusing than you think.
Don't do it.
Before asking questions, please be sure to read all the important
information scattered around the forums as well as past questions from
Respect all players at all times. While swearing is permitted, it may not
be directed at others (eg. "oh hell" is fine, "go to
hell" is not). Punishment level one applicable.
You are required to follow the instructions of staff members even when you
disagree with them. If you believe that you are being treated unfairly,
please message another staff member in-game or on the forums and let them
know what has transpired.
Kill Stealing ("KSing") is permitted only on bosses. If someone
is farming in an area which you want, farm somewhere else until they leave;
do not follow them around and kill all their mobs in an attempt to force
While you may attempt to KS bosses from both factions, resetting bosses on
your own faction is not permitted. Once the boss has been attacked by either
party it can not be deliberately reset. This does not apply for CT - see
Cryptic Throne raids MUST remain open to everyone at all times. This means
raids are NOT be done in secret, but advertised so that others online are
able to participate. People may be kicked if they are not helping or are
being disruptive ie. not listening to instructions.
Names which contain works such as Fuck, Dick, Pussy and Shit are not
permitted. However, misspellings containing the same words, such as YuckFou,
are fine providing they are not overly lewd. We reserve the right to change
anyone's name if feel is not appropriate, or if many players feel it is
not; in cases where a name is borderline, we will give you a name change.
GMs and other players should be able to easily contact you in game when
you are online. This means that names which are extremely difficult to read
(eg. alternating capital I's and lower case L's) are not allowed.
Offending characters will be gen-named.
Impersonating other players is strictly forbidden. This includes using
spaces to make it appear as though have spoken after you when in fact they
have not, as well as using the same name with the intent of having people
think you are the same person. Level 3 punishment.
Scamming, whether by leaving out details, lying about an aspect of a trade
or with-holding your part of a trade will not be tolerated. In the event of
this occurring, all money/items will be returned to the original owner and
punishment level three will apply. Level 3 punishment.

posting advertisements or wanted ads, and do not post repeat messages that
are not within these categories. Punishment level one applicable.
Only English is permitted in trade chat. If you wish to speak another
language, please speak privately in guild, whisper or party chat. In a large
raid, such as at an event, respect the fact that many people speak only
English and avoid using other languages in party except where necessary (eg.
answering the question of someone who only speaks a non-English language).
Punishment level one applicable.
Begging, defined as repeatedly asking some sort of favor, whether it be
items, gold or assistance, is not allowed. While asking someone for help is
fine, harassing them about it is not, regardless of whether they are a
friend, guild member or someone you've never met. Punishment level 1.
"Banter", "trash talk" and "shit talk" in
PvP is frowned upon, although not banned altogether. However, if a staff
member asks you to cease then you are required to regardless of whether or
not you feel it is warranted.
Spawn killing, defined as killing another player
before they have visibly moved from a spawn point, is not allowed;
please note that buffing does not count as movement. Neither attacks or
debuffs are permitted. If someone has been standing on the spawn point for
over twenty seconds, or they have used an attack (a skill that damages or
debuffs you), you are permitted to kill them even if they have not moved.
apply for Karis/Raigo/soccer map/arena - to be clear, if someone is at the
spawn point in either of these bases,
you may not attack them, regardless of whether they appear AFK or
are buffing, etc. Where possible, you may kill behind guards and kill
players who appear AFK providing they are not at the

attacked immediately. Also note, pvp from inside the Karis Throne room is

shelter. Standing at the very edge of the barrier's outskirts to
prevent people using skills on you is prohibited. Punishment level one
Healing from inside the barrier is permitted. Once you have left the
barrier, you may not heal from the shelter of the outskirts.
Attacking people inside the barrier by dueling another member of your
faction is permitted providing the attacks do not hit people standing at the
spawn point. If you find that a skill is hitting people where they spawn in
(some with large ranges such as Karmain's Breath often will), avoid
using that skill.
Stat-padding, defined as repeatedly killing the same player with little or
no attempt from them to fight back, is not permitted under any
circumstances. Anyone found to have participated in this, whether they were
the instigator or knowingly stayed in the same party to get kills, will have
all their kills reset to zero and be punished under level three.
Attacking behind the opposite faction's guards in soccer map, is not
allowed (e.g. Fighters/Warriors using Eraser inside the base). Any Ranged
class is allowed to, as long as you do not run to equal length of the
guards. Kiting guards is not permitted. Using transformation to attack
behind the guards is not permitted. Summoning your faction into the opposite
faction's base is not permitted. Punishment will fall under Level 1 or

glitches is also strictly prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to,

again, if you are found to be guilty, you will receive an immediate

Exceptions can be made to these rules at the staff's hand. This is a
basic guideline for breaking rules, what is accepted and what is not. IP bans can be given for reasons that seem necessary to the staff
members. If you would like to appeal for your personal account/accounts to be
unbanned, please message us on Facebook, or talk to a [GM] directly.
