    Treasure Wars Network Rules and Regulations

    Here at Treasure Wars, we have a few rules put into place to maintain a safe and fun environment for all players. These rules, listed below, are to be followed at all times when playing on the Treasure Wars Server, or using our services. Any offenses breaking these rules will result in a punishment.


    Common Sense and Good Morality
    When playing on our server or using any of our services, use common sense when making decisions and actions on the server. While some things may not be listed in the rules directly, it’s your responsibility to uphold good behavior. This is a game for players to come on and have fun together, there is no reason for unsportmanship or rude attitude.


    Illegal Modifications and Hacked Clients
    Any player found using something that modifies the game and gives you an unfair advantage is against the rules and will result in a ban on the server without any warning given. We do not want any clients, resource packs, mod, or any other program that will modify the game outside of what has been set up for the server.

    1st Offence: Permanent Ban​

    You can find a list of modifications which are safe to use in our Whitelisted Modifications List.


    Teaming with Hackers
    Anyone caught teaming with a hacker, whether that's supplying them gear or being truced/allied to them and not reporting them to a staff member, will be subject to a punishment. Having repeated hackers in your faction can result in faction members being punished/the faction disbanded.

    Respect all Staff Members
    The staff members volunteer their time to help make sure all players on Treasure Wars are in a fun and safe environment. They make sure that the rules are being followed at all times and help with questions some players may have. When it comes to moderation, please respect the staff member’s decision regarding the rules or topic that they state. Players who are caught harassing or disrespecting staff will be punished accordingly.


    Vulgar and Inappropriate Language
    The use of vulgar and inappropriate language in public chat is not allowed. Such terms can include cursing, racism, discrimination, etc. We have a filter placed to prevent players from using such profane words, and bypassing it / using this language will result in a punishment.

    In Real Life Trading

    When you purchase a package off our webstore, you agree to our Terms and Conditions, which states clearly that all transactions are final and that we do not offer refunds. Attempting to chargeback your package violates our terms and conditions and will lead into a permanent ban.


    Exploiting Bugs is Bannable
    Exploiting a glitch or a bug on the server for your own benefit or for others will result in a ban. If you find something broken ingame, you are to report it here with sufficient proof and information on how we can reproduce it, so we can get it patched. Attempting to take advantage of any broken feature in the game can result in your stats being wiped and a ban from the server. Failing to report exploits and gamebreaking bugs to the admins can result in a punishment.


    Teleport Trapping and Killing
    Teleport trapping and killing under any circumstance is not allowed. This includes if the player was offered money, items, or if they were warned prior to teleporting that they will be killed. Traps that remove a player's ability to type in chat, and derps that instantly kick players as soon as they fall are also punishable.

    1st Offence: 1 Day Temporary Ban
    2nd Offence: 7 Day Temporary Ban
    3rd Offence: 30 Day Temporary Ban
    4th Offence: Permanent Ban​


    Faction Names and Descriptions
    If a faction name or description breaks any of the server rules, such as containing inappropriate language or profane words, the owner and officers of that faction will face consequences based off the rule which they violated. Faction descriptions are to not advertise other servers or services, and are not to have inappropriate/masked links.

    Punishments are based on the severity of whichever rules are being violated. This can result up to a temporary or permanent ban from the server and risk of your faction being disbanded.


    Faction Bases
    All builds on the server must be appropriate and follow our general guidelines for being suitable for all ages. Faction bases, creations, pixel arts, etc which contain explicit, sexual or profane material will be removed and you will be warned. Repeated offenses can result in a base removal, faction owner/member ban, and a possible faction disband.


    Faction Chunk Buffer Limit
    Factions are allowed up to a 20 chunk buffer limit to claim outside of their bases. To put into perspective, 20 chunks is equivalent to 160 genned walls. The buffer is measured from the exterior wall of your base and does not include your base itself.

    [​IMG]

    Factions who do not follow this rule will be warned and asked to fix the issue, and if continued will be subject to a temporary ban, /f unclaim, or faction disband.


    Ban Evading and Alternate Accounts
    Logging onto an alternate account when you have an active ban on your account(s) is considered Ban Evading. Evading any punishment will result in a more severe or permanent mute/ban from the server.

    All alternate accounts which are logged onto the server under your IP Address will be linked to your account and considered your responsibility for any rules violated on these accounts. We advise not using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) when playing on the server, as this can link your account with other player’s accounts.


    Death Threats
    Messages which threaten another player’s life with harsh remarks is forbidden, regardless of the context, they’re being used in or if they’re being said as a joke. Such terms can include “Go kill yourself”, “kys”, “Drink bleach”, “Go Die”, etc. Anyone caught saying these messages to another player, or even in general, will be banned from the server.

    1st Offence: 2 Week Temporary Ban
    2nd Offence: 1 Month Temporary Ban
    3rd Offence: Permanent Ban


    DDoS Threats / Personal Attacks
    Purposefully attacking any player by releasing their information, threatening them, or sending them attacks is not tolerated under any circumstances. Sensitive information such as full names, addresses, IP Addresses, phone numbers, and etc are to be respected by that person’s privacy. Releasing any type of information of a player will be considered release of personal information, regardless if it is off of Treasure Wars platforms and services. Attempting to make an attack on a member in our community will result in a permanent ban from the network and subject to a network ban off all of our services.


    Forums and Discord Specific Rules
    All rules stated above are to be followed on our Discord Server and Forums. Violating any of the following rules can lead to an account suspension and removal from our services.
