Forum Rules [Updated 12/21/2016]

MAIN RULES OF THE FORUMS

Please respect your community. Respect each other as you all enjoy the same thing – The Game.

We encourage open and friendly discussion of the game and the Community. Moderators and Staff have final decisions on all matters, and are here to make sure that the Community remains a friendly, fun place appropriate for players of all backgrounds, ages and groups.

It is the forum member's responsibility to stay up to date on forum rules and to honor the behavior outlined.

PURPOSE OF THE FORUMS

These forums provide an area for constructive player discussions of the game. It also allows players to
help each other identify bugs and issues, and help each other reproduce and resolve them.

These forums are not the most direct way to contact support. If you’re having an issue with your game and you need direct assistance, please tap on the FAQ/Support tab within the game.

CHANGES OR IMPROVEMENT

Please make sure to stay updated on these rules by reviewing this page from time to time.

SET RULES

This is a private board. As such, decisions made are final.
We reserve the right to remove any message board content without notice for any reason.


Rule 1: Responses to rule violations
Violating these rules will result in warnings, either formal or informal, suspensions, banning, or other sanctions.

Rule 2: Respect other users on the forums
- Do not make attacks or insult other users, either in the forums or through private messages. Disagreements and debates are fine, but don’t make it personal.
- Do not attack groups. This includes professions, races, religions, sexual orientations, genders, incomes, or even vague groups like “you people.”
- Do not use ill terms which are offensive to groups, do not “flame”, “troll.” or “haze”.

Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure
- Make your posts in the appropriate forum.
- Please use the Search function. If a relevant thread already exists, please post there instead of creating a new thread about the same topic. Duplicate threads will be closed to keep the forums orderly and easy to navigate.
- Keep off-topic posts in the off-topic forum.
- Don’t start discussions about games that are not ours.
- Do not cross-link to other message boards or websites unless approved by a moderator.

Rule 4: Respect the law
- Do not post anything illegal under U.S. law, or encourage other users to break the laws of the U.S. or their country of residence.
- Do not encourage users to break terms of service. This includes giving information about how to find scripts, exploits, or cheats, as well as arranging to buy or sell accounts or virtual goods.

Rule 5: Respect the audience
Think about who you're talking to. Users may be as young as 13 on these message boards, and may be male or female, and from countries across the globe.
- Keep your language civil. Profanity is frowned on.
- Do not post Adult Material, inappropriate graphic sexual content in any format, or links to sexually explicit sites.
- Do not post graphic images or explicit descriptions of violent acts.
- Do not use an avatar or signature that could offend other users. They have to look at it a lot.

Rule 6: Respect privacy
- Do not post any private emails or private messages unless you have the explicit permission of each person involved in the exchange.
- Do not post private communication between customer support, members, moderators, or administrators on these forums, or anywhere else. (This include support ticket responses)
- Do not post any information covered by a non-disclosure agreement or beta testing agreement. Even if you somehow have inside information about our competitors, for legal reasons we don’t want to hear it.
- Do not post Facebook information about other forum users.
- Do not post any private information about other users.
- Do not post in-game information in an attempt to have other players attack your target. Be careful to not cross the line into bullying.

Rule 7: Do not spam
- Do not post repeatedly about the same topic.
- Do not spam users on the forums or through private messages.
- Do not start a thread without actual purpose.
- Do not start a thread about a news story or article unless you make it clear what the story is about, and offer your own opinion to start a discussion.

Rule 8: Respect your account
- Do not share your account information with other individuals. You will be held responsible for any rules violations that occur under your account.
- Do not create new accounts or use other tricks to avoid suspensions or bans.
- Do not create ‘sock puppet’ accounts – multiple accounts created just so that you can agree with yourself and make it seem like your ideas have more support than they do.
- Never include your e-mail address or any other personal information in posts.

Rule 9: Respect the Moderators
- Do not post using the color red. This color is reserved for moderators.
- Do not impersonate moderators. Do not claim to speak for the moderators.

Rule 10: Respect the decisions of the moderators
- The moderation teams reserves the right to warn, suspend, or permanently ban users judged to be acting against the spirit of the rules, even if the user is following the letter of the rules.
- Do not argue with moderators about moderator decisions. You can disagree with a moderator’s opinions, just like any other poster, but when they post moderator actions in red text, it is considered final.
- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

        I'm in but I still think it should be split (pre and post).

        If it's organised, count me in (I'll be away on holidays starting tomorrow, back on the 29th). Just add my name to the list.

            Need someone who wants to be in charge. Once that person steps forward, they need to start a thread with the rules and everything, and I'll sticky it.

                        welcome to our first official pvp tournament. We will be entertaining players of levels Group 1. 80 through 299 & Group 2. 300 to 450 & Group 3. 450 Onwards for this rendition. Please be aware that by agreeing to join the festivities you will need to be active for the next week or two and you will have your keep link posted as public knowledge on these forums for the duration. That's enough preamble, on the format of the tournament.

                        sign-ups
                        if you wish to participate please pm me your keep link. The first 64 people will be accepted and able to participate in the tournament. Obviously i only have room for 40 pms in my box, so you may also leave me a visitor message on my wall with your information, that will count as well. All keep links will need to be confirmed, in the same way as atm requests, which is why i do not want anyone posting keep links in this thread. Posting your keep link in this thread is an automatic disqualification, as that shows you can't follow directions (signatures don't count).

                        battle format
                        the first round will consist of a round-robin style combat. Players will be placed in groups of 4-5 people and you will engage each individual separately in 20 total battles, 10 offensive and 10 defensive. Each player will attack the other with 5 invasions and 5 duels. Players receive 3 points for winning the majority of the 20 battles, 1 point for a tie and 0 points for losing a majority of the battles. When the round is over the points are tallied up and the top two players from each group move forward to round two.

                        Round two, and all subsequent rounds, are done in knockout style. Players will be ranked according to their point totals, where ties leave the higher level ranked player on top. The groups will then be split into two sides, a and b. Then we will actually have two brackets going forward, one for each finals slot. All the group winners from side a are grouped with all the runner ups from group b, and vice versa. Of those 16 teams in each group, they are ordered by points achieved and rank, then battle in 1vs16, 2vs15 and so forth. Each pair will again launch 10 attacks on each other, 5 duel and 5 invasion, with the winner of the majority of the fights progressing to the next round. In the event of a tie the underdog is crowned the winner and progresses to the next round. The underdog is defined as the player with a lower level ranking (ie. A level 80 is the underdog when matched up against a level 299).

                        The knockout stage progresses until there is only one person left standing, and they are then crowned our first pvp champion.

                        Results from each battle set need to be reported to the referee by one of the two participants. This can be done by forum pm, forum visitor message or simply posted in this thread. This thread is the preferred method, so we can all be involved in each matchup.

                        generals
                        pvp has a bit of strategy involved, in terms of who to leave as your active general when attacking or being attacked. As such we will be leaving that part of it in place, to a degree. The only generals who will be unavailable to be used are epic generals from the chests and halcyon from the oblivion chest. All other generals (monthly, alchemy, rare/uncommon chest) may be used. You may switch generals between offense and defense, duel and invasion. You may not however change a general partway through an invasion or duel chain. For example you may not have vanquish equipped for your first two duels, and then switch to kataan for the last 3.

                        Obviously this means that you need to work out when and how to attack your opponent. Forum pms may work, but the best way will be some sort of instant message feature. Personally i use the facebook chat for fb firends or mail system when not friends but you and your opponent may use whatever medium you wish. However you work it out, you must give your opponent the chance to set their desired general before assaulting them.

                        opponent list
                        for this tournament we will be posting in this thread the keep links of all the participants. This is to allow an easy way for players to find and attack each other. I plan on including a remove and add from army link for each person in case you happen to be army buddies. Please note that the add to army link will only work if you are still fb friends. When the tournament is over, or a player has been knocked out, keep links will be removed upon request.

                        Once we have a full field i'll randomly assign people to groups and post here that the tournament has started. I plan on giving 4 days for the first round and 2 days for each subsequent round. However if all battles are completed early, we can progress to the next round early as well. But due to players being in different time zones, i want to ensure we all have a chance to plan a time to be online at the same time to finish our required battles.

                        This thread is left open for any questions/concerns, as well as friendly taunting and posting of results for battles. Please keep the taunting and posturing clean though or i go find my ban stick.

                        Happy hunting!

                          NO!

                          No splitting!

                          Right now, I'm at the top of the pack at level 288. But I know that as soon as I reach 300 I'll be in trouble.

                          But if I were forced to go against everyone, like in the Arenas, it wouldn't be bad for me to be above 300. But if it were split, it would mean I'm either guaranteed to win (< 300) or guaranteed to loss (> 300).

                          A split would be very unfair.
                          I don't always summon monsters, but when I do, I prefer to use Stone Guardian... Slay hydras my friends.

                          Remove me? Chain me for easy Rank 10 War Points.
