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.

  • Army has suddenly EXPLODED in growth!

    Yesterday, I had around 1,200 army members. Today, I have almost 1,900. And no, I've not been out there recruiting. The vast majority of these "army members" are not my FB friends and they do not have an avatar.

    MOST of these new members show in my army list as "facebook user" and when I go thru CA to get to their FB page, I find that the page either does not exist, or they are not my FB friend. Mind you, I do not even have 1,900 FB friends, nor have I EVER had that many.


    What the heck is going on???

      I checked a handful of pages and they all have names ie: https://www.facebook.com/firstnamelastname

      How do I tell if they have numbers? I know that we used to be identified with numbers.. but now, it seems to be names.

      And how could they add me to their army if they are not my FB friend. Did that change, too? You can now add folks to your army, in a nutshell, w/o their permission???

      I am feeling vaguely violated :-/

        If they have a profile pic on FB and a page where you can go to see their home page, they are FB players. if you click on their keep link and it takes you to a FB page that doesn't exist, or when you go to their keep link the number in their keep link starts with a 4000..., they are iOS accounts.

        Using your army code you can get army without being friends with them. iOS folks cant be FB "friends" because they don't have FB profiles, thus they can make army members without having any actual friends, as long as they give out their army code.

          This same thing happened to one of our guild members yesterday afternoon (Sunday afternoon). He had logged off to do something else and when he logged back in for Fest battle he had almost 500 new army with no explanation or reason on how they showed up.

            It will take days to go thru the army tabs and delete them one by one.. does anyone know of a quicker way to boot them? Seriously, there are about 700 new ones and I did NOT ask them to join me. It bothers me that they are there.

              I wish I'd just magically have 500+ army members join my army. would make getting that 1200 army achievement a lot easier...

              But seriously, who cares if you got a bunch of extra army members? It's not like it hurts you.

                It's a bug
                FB users are not ios... they are either fb bots or deleted fb accounts...
                IOS accounts on your army have a common pic and only have their in-game-name.
                We are now at the halfway point of our disjointed epic. If you are just arriving, you have missed little.

                  I already had over 1,200 - I've been playing for well over 4 years. And perhaps it does not "hurt" me that they are in my army - but it does not help me to have them either, as they are not in my FB friends' list. They do not see my CTAs.

                    There was a bug a couple years ago where anyone who assisted a battle would join the summoner's army. Could be something like this happened again? Or, just random assignments that should have gone elsewhere.
