  • Old game servers (1-19)

Old connection servers (1-19) on these servers players are allowed to play with multiple accounts. The condition however, is all the accounts must be marked in the settings of the game account with same email, which will lead to the blocking of certain functions (mutual attacking, shops, etc..).
Accounts which aren't tagged will be tagged manually by the team, and every rule broken in the meantime (Pushing, etc.) will be punished accordingly.

  • New game servers (101-102)
    The new server is not allowed to play with multiple accounts. Doing so will lead to ban.
    Server 202 will not be involved in the merge. Multi-account rule still in place for this server.
    Server 210 is still ONLY allowed two accounts that must be different races and have no interaction with each other.


Applicable to 202 ONLY:

Bashing-Rule

For each player it is not allowed to attack more than 5 times the same player within a range of 6 hours. Or attacking another account for more than the allowed number of times per 24-hour period. This will include henchman attacks and linked accounts attacking the same victim. Bashing is counted from the first attack +6 hours OR between 00:00 to 24:00 and how many attacks have been done within the time range on a determined account.

1st Offense - 3 Days ban.
2nd Offense - 5 Days ban.
3rd Offense - 7 Days ban.
Each subsequent Offense - 14 Days ban.

Notice:

Bashing may be suspended due to players involvement in: Official Duels reported on Board (Bashing is suspended only on the player with who Duel is agreed).
Any Attempt to abuse these privileges will lead, as stated in §6 Abuse of the Rules to severe consequences.
Server 202 is a SPEEDSERVER, is 4x faster than other servers. It is counted from the first attack on + 6 hours / how many attacks have
been done within the time range on a determined account.

The Bashing rule for the Speedserver does not apply for fights in the House of Pain.

- For the moment. Bashing rule is the only one that changes.
