Version: Rules v2.0
By Acult & Community
Last update: 05-06-2024

General (1.1 - 1.5)

*1.1 Avoid a forbidden behavior, which consists of:

**1.1.1 Raising shitstorm discussions on purpose against a specific player, or faction, or side

**1.1.2 Criticizing staff and server, NB: The generalized criticism term is referred to all those sentences related to "you're a c*nt, you're a brainless biased, you took this decision because x and x, you only care about x, you are x and such"

**1.1.3 Flooding, spamming

**1.1.4 Abusing of caps lock

**1.1.5 Causing a mess on purpose when staff is busy on certain tasks, for example in managing wars

**1.1.7 Disrespectful behavior toward staff members aswell as provocations, insults toward staff, ignoring staff warnings and decisions on purpose, randomly accusing staff of being biased or putting staff in bad light.

**1.1.9 Abusing of staff dm (fake reports, insults, provocations, your personal toxic opinions about others which none cares about).
**For each of these behaviors, staff has access to a collection of examples and relative punishment. They generally vary between SOFT Warning, 1 min mute (Warning), 10 min mute (Heavy breaking of rules), 30 min mute (Super Heavy Reiterated breaking of rules).

---

*1.2 Do not spam IP or sites of other servers, players are earned not stolen from those who have won them loyally.
**Penalty: Permanent Ban [Global]

---

*1.3 Do not encourage other users to break the regulation. (Ex. Exploiting a bug and spreading the exploit to other users)
**Penalty: Depends on the infraction occurred. The penalty will be applied to both those who have encouraged the infringement (heavier punishment) and the victim.
---

*1.4 Everyone is responsible for their account, so whatever happens the owner of the account will be punished, this does not apply in case of theft of the account.
**It's not rule breaking if you write few words in your own language, or even few sentences. It's considered a discussion (thus breaking the rule) only when 2 or more players are involved into talking in their own language for several time. There is no punishment for such rule, which is more like a common guideline, instead you would get warned or 10min muted if you severely spam the chat.

---

*1.5 New players can't be killed, this protection is valid for 3 day (the time start from the first login). If you kill the newbie you MUST refund the stuff back. If the new players attack someone they lose their protection. Self-defense isn't considered as an attack.

**1.5.1 If a new player participates in a war (which is seen as an event) does not mean their noob-protection of 3 days will wear off.

2. Gameplay (2.1 - 2.23)

**The staff is able to see when the hacks have been used, but the tools that are available are not always accurate and therefore it is possible that you are asked to show your minecraft folder via screen sharing on AnyDesk or Discord, this process is not to be accepted compulsorily, however in the event that it is not possible and the anti-cheat detects a number of infractions it will be necessary to continue according to the indicated penalty.
