Shoutbox and Profile Rules

The Shoutbox is a communication tool in our game. Please behave respectfully towards other players and watch your choice of words. Insults, discrimination, provocation, baiting, offensive language, and other negative behaviour that interferes with proper and civil communication will not be tolerated. These are the shoutbox rules (we reserve the right to change them as necessary). These rules must be followed without exception, and violations will be met with the player's being banned from enjoying use of the shoutbox.

In addition to the normal definitions of conduct, the following rules apply to the shoutbox:


- Order and team recruitment, and offers to sell or buy equipment items are permitted to be made only every 15 minutes.
- Order or team recruitment posts may only be made in the shoutbox by the respective leader.
- in the Shoutbox of any given world, only the language of that world may be used.
- Any discussion which leads to or enables a breach of the game rules is strictly forbidden.

This includes, but is not limited to:
- Sale of accounts.
- Description of bugs or forms of game exploitation.
- Mention of farm accounts or distribution of parting gifts.
- Publication of game-related data (fight reports, skill values, etc.) involving or of other players is prohibited.

Commercial advertising is forbidden. This includes but is not limited to:
- discussions about or links to games not run by GameArt Studio.
- Referral links.
- Links to shops or any commercial offer.

Offences in the shoutbox will, as a rule, be penalised with shoutbox warnings or bans. These bans apply to the shoutboxes of all languages available to that account. Extreme and/or repeat violations may lead to account warnings and account bans.


Further clarification and Profile regulations:
  • Directions of moderators must be followed at all times! Their instructions are not an opportunity for debate. Their warnings are a courtesy they extend out of respect, but not out of obligation. Please be appreciative of this and refrain from the behaviour when asked to do so.
  • Discussions in the SB and descriptions in your profile are permitted in the game language only.
  • Asking for/offering accounts for sale (even indirectly) is not allowed in the shoutbox, this includes posting links to your forum offer. Please use your personal profile and the respective forum for this purpose.
  • Recruitment advertising (even indirectly) is not allowed in the Shoutbox, except by the team leader or OM.
  • Discussions about games that are not run by GameArt Studio GmbH are forbidden.
  • Posting links of any kind is not allowed in the shoutbox. Please use the PM feature, or place game-related links (eg., to forum threads) in your profile.
  • Insulting, offending, provoking, using expletives, mobbing, or harassing of other players or moderators is forbidden, will result in a ban, and may lead to instant account deletion without further notice. Cf. Game Rules §§ 7 – 11.
  • Provoking, insulting, or arguing with moderators is not allowed, and will not be tolerated.
  • Repeated posting of smileys or letter/number combinations is not permitted and may lead to shoutbox banishment, or account deletion.
  • Writing in continuous capital letters is forbidden. Exceptions are order tags.
  • Spamming of any kind is not allowed in the SB. Example: an offer, or something alike is to be posted only every 15 minutes.
  • Discussions, political opinions, game negotiations between users, or the exchange of long arguments are undesired in the shoutbox. Please use the private message system or the forum for such purposes.
  • It is forbidden to write game-relevant or personal data in the shoutbox or in your profile. This includes fight results with the name of the opponent or extracts of private messages whether or not the sender's name is indicated.
  • Players who write private messages and/or post a profile/order profile description which is insulting, offensive, pornographic, illegal, political and/or radical, will be deleted. Insulting other players is prohibited and leads to removal of communications features, and may lead to eventual deletion of the account, should the offence be repeated.
  • Violation of any of these rules may result in temporary or permanent shoutbox banishment, or in extreme or persistent cases even account deletion. Cf. Game Rules §§ 7 – 11.
  • We reserve the right to delete accounts immediately and without notice if players do not conform to the rules after being told to do so by moderators!
  • We reserve the right to delete or ban accounts at our discretion and without notice in order to protect the playing community from any manner of deviant communications.
Please respect the in-game rules concerning the use of these features and help create a smooth, civil and pleasant gaming atmosphere for all players. This is the purpose of the rules, and to that end they will be enforced. There is, in the end, no reason why all worlds couldn't remain entirely free of banned players.
