I thought it is generally understood, but then, it seems to me that certain rules and regulations still needed to be ironed out and written in black and white.
1. Abusing Bugs, 'Boosting' or Using 3rd Party Programs/Hardware are strictly prohibited
I spent many weeks studying and scripting features for ExperienceRO, mainly for you to enjoy and experience something you never did before. The server is easy enough in general, if you participate in enough Events, WoE, etc., you will have established a good foundation in game. However, if you have in mind to exploit certain areas of the server for your own personal gain, eg. Boosting, macro-ing and getting items, affecting the economy, I don't think that kinda behavior or mentality is welcomed here.
Therefore in the event you are caught the first time, I will permanently ban that particular account involved (since you didn't work for the current status of your character/account, I don't believe you should keep it). However, if you are caught doing the same thing again, all related accounts will be permanently banned; and I will not entertain any pleading, etc.
Boosting: Farm killing your own or your friend's character(s) repeatedly to gain points/lvl/kills/deaths/etc. in Kage, Happy Hour, Last Man Standing and/or The Duelist.
3rd Party Programs/Hardware includes: Bots, Macros, WPE, etc.
2. AFK Farming
AFK farmers should you be caught, your farmer will be perma-banned. Your main account and other related account(s) will also receive a 1-2 days ban.
AFK Farming by definition includes using macro, bots, auto-cast builds, reflect builds, homunculus, you get the idea.
3. Mannerism & Respect
Criticizing a GM in public is not tolerated. Trash-talking and/or talking down on other players, and to a certain extent qualifies as "harassment" is not tolerated as well. Being so good at what you do on ExperienceRO doesn't warrant you belittling others. I'll show you whois better - trust me I can. Abusing #map, or even spamming publicly could result to jail, or ban (punishment varies).
4. Defaming Server
Negative thoughts or remarks publicly shown, announced, portrayed through character nicks, party name, guild name, pub's title, market's title, will result to perma-ban of the account(s) involved. This includes creating chatrooms in town saying "Boring", "Quitting Server", etc. Such remarks are demoralizing especially to new players coming to the server. If you are bored or calling quits, then just leave because there are others who are enjoying it unlike you. Should you be caught doing so, I've no reservations but to have that account banned.
I take pride in how organized our Vend Area is. Should you be found vending outside the normal Vend Area (that is the area below the WoE Information NPC), the first time you're caught I'll just jail your vendor, until you get hold of me to release your vendor. The second time you're caught, I'll just ban that account. Since you want your vend to be noticed, oh yes... I noticed.
6. Trading/Selling items/accounts of ExperienceRO
Trading and/or selling items/accounts, whatever you have earned/gained in ExperienceRO for real world currency, or any other form of merchandise/product elsewhere is strictly prohibited. Your account(s) will be permanently banned if caught doing so.
Also if you deal turn sour, we will not be held responsible which leads us to...
We also DO NOT investigate cases of account hacking (including: stealing characters, items, zeny, coins or marauding) if more than 1 person has access to the account. Therefore, DO NOT share/entrust your account(s) with anyone else, not even your brother, sister, cat, dog, fish...
We do not recover items lost due to user's fault. This includes:
- Items were accidentally dropped on the ground whether or not while you were farming or something more noteworthy from Odin, etc.
- Items were accidentally given to a wrong person.
- Items were accidentally sold to an NPC.
- Items were broken during upgrade attempt.
- The character was deleted by user, but the user forgot to unequip items.
- Other resembling cases
Bottom line, we won't compensate for your losses.
7. Advertising another Server
Related accounts will be permanently banned if caught doing so.
8. Inactive Accounts
Inactive game and forum accounts (within a span of 3 months) will be automatically deleted without prior notice. So please login at least once a month should you be caught busy with life or what not.
Anybody impersonating a GM will be permanently banned. This includes adding 'GM' or 'Admin' before your own character name. Impersonating other players for any reason is considered as cheating, and the impersonator will be dealt with accordingly. If you suspect that somebody is not who they claim they are, report to the GMs immediately.
I guess that's all for now... Thanks and I hope you've a pleasant experience with us =)
