The Empire War v2 Rules General Rules: The staff members have ultimate authority. This can override any of the other rules. If we believe a punishment is in order it will be done. We reserve the right to act without warning and do what we believe must be done. We do not need to justify our actions.
1. Always respect others. 2. If you get into a heated argument with another player, you have three options. One, agree to disagree and drop it. Two, contact a staff member to resolve it. Three, take it to another medium and resolve it yourself. We will not tolerate pointless arguments and petty flaming on the server. 3. Avoid swearing. If you have a question about whether a word is offensive or not, contact a staff member. 4. Do not, under any circumstances, spam messages. 5. Don't use excessive caps without good reason. 6. Absolutely no advertising of other servers on Empire War. 7. Do not advertise Empire War on other servers unless they allow you to. 8. Do not, under any circumstances, abuse a bug that you may find. Report it to the staff if you believe there to be one - if we find out about it and catch you abusing it, punishment will be in order. 9. Any client modification that is designed to give you an advantage over other players is STRICTLY forbidden! If you are caught with a hacked client, you will be banned immediately. It is up to the staff to decide what constitutes an unfair advantage. Ask if you are unsure. Note: Minimaps are allowed, as long as radar is turned off. Optifine, MCPatcher and Shaders are also allowed, as those do not give players a large advantage. 10. Don’t bug staff members for ranks, teleports, items, or whatnot (This does not include asking a staff member for a teleport when you are stuck).
Sub-Rules: These rules still apply specifically to a server, but are a little less important than the main rules. You can still get punished for breaking them. 1. Try to avoid swapping teams in the middle of battle. That’s not to say you can’t - but don’t constantly swap back and forth to use a certain class or participate in a certain part. Try to pick a team and stick with it! 2. Don’t purposefully betray your team by breaking barricades or placing them in hindering spots - if it is an accident, we’ll be able to tell, so don’t worry too much about this.
Not following one of these rules could mean a temp/perm ban!
Whilst most of these rules also count for the forums, it is very important to also read the Forum Rules if you want to make sure you use the forums without problems.
