    Forum Rules
    Forum rules apply to and are obligatory for every forum member without any exceptions.These principles are a codex, that should provide a clarification to any moderator actions.

    A moderator is a forum member that provides help to the administration in managing the community. A moderator does not have the goal to delete any messages considered “undesirable” in the eyes of community. We always welcome any discussions between our players and are open to constructive criticism.

    Nevertheless, we are strictly against:
    • Profanity and any cases of obscene language. Veiled profanity, such as acronyms, words that consist mostly of special symbols etc. Any words that can be considered obscene will be deleted;
    • Any types of messages, vulgar or rude in nature;
    • Any form of insult towards the administration, moderators, the game itself or the company as well any forum member. Players, not capable of communicating without resorting to insults will not be able to communicate on our forums at all;
    • Appeals and calls to leave the game, delete the launcher and any intentions to harm the game’s reputation;
    • Any discussions of third-party games and products.

    General rules of moderation.

    The following types of messages will be deleted:
    • meaningless messages;
    • inquiries regarding a previous post\message deletion;
    • any negative discussion regarding the forum moderation;
    • any insults;
    • any destructive propaganda (appeals to leave the game etc.)
    Forum account can be temporarily blocked for:
    • repeating the same, already deleted message;
      insults, obscene language and profanity;
    • any other forum rules violations.
    Recommendations:

    • Advertising, sales, destructive propaganda and disinformation are forbidden;
    • Use the search tool before asking a question;
    • Make sure the topic you want to create is in the correct section of the forum;
    • Start a topic that requires a detailed discussion. It is not recommended to start a thread that only requires a single answer. There are several threads that were created for such purposes;
    • If you would like to thank anyone on the forum it is best to like the post using the appropriate function;
    • If you witness a violation, refrain from pointing it out publicly. Use the appropriate report function.
    The administration reserves the right of the final word in any controversial situations.
