Forum Rules [Updated 12/21/2016]


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.


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.


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


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.

    Honestly, I have NO IDEA of what is really going on here. I (like many I suspect) had originally assumed it was more or less fiction, designed to provide some entertainment that perhaps had gone a bit overboard (when it was less and less clear whether it was 'all in fun' or not) -- but then the 'ban' came along and sort of put things into perspective for me.

    Either way, I personally feel this thread is in bad taste and it has forced me to re-evaluate my opinion of some of the forum regulars ... and I do feel a review by the devs, who (I'd think) have access to all the facts (before and after edits) and can decide on what needs to be done -- it is after all their business.
    Everybody has an agenda. Except me.__________________________Visit my keep.

      • I have just finished a nice evening with my friend. We had a nice peaceful chat and enjoyed a film: Oklahoma starring Hugh Jackman--plans are to introduce her to the X-Men films starting next weekend.

        You've obviously been rather busy in here, and I do hope you took my warning to heart; although, the evidence in other threads suggests you did not . Not sure I can make it through this all tonight (already midnight, and I should go to my niece's Dedication Ceremony tomorrow), but this will all get sorted eventually.


        • If I get an infraction, I demand it come from Jaraxxis. That way I haz a full bingo card.


          • I want an infraction from Lord of the Files. I miss that guy

              I looked in battle feed, and did not find Nemo, but now I won't look again until tomorrow.

                    • Geez, is still still going on, can't we all just go and hunt some monsters, instead of spending our stamina and forum time on this nonsense?

                        • The forums are supposed to be civil discussion. This thread is not.

                          If there is another thread on this topic that gets created please do not continue with put downs or those thread will be shut down as well.

                          Final note - Treat everyone with respect
                          The one thing that is constant is change.


                          • And just to make sure we close the loop on this so things don't get mistakenly assumed, here is the conclusion to the thread. Hint: it was a joke.
