    ArcadeWars Factions Conduct
    Last Updated : 11.12.18

    These rules apply Factions on ArcadeWars.
    These rules DO NOT apply to Skyblock. Skyblock rules can be found here.

    This rules list contains all basic rules. The admins and higher reserve the right to issue punishments against offenses that are not listed on this thread, or to modify the type or length of any punishment, if it is deemed necessary.

    Be nice and play fair. Toxicity will be dealt with accordingly.

    All decisions made by staff are final. Remember, any punishment can be appealed. If you feel a specific staff member or punishment is unfair, contact @Messaginq about it.

    Conditions for moving to the next level of a punishment are such: warnings apply for twenty-four hours, mutes apply for twenty-four hours, and bans are permanent.​

    Cheating someone out of real-life money via the ArcadeWars store: promising someone you’ll give them something in-game for them to buy you something on the store, and then not handing what you owe in-game after the purchase was completed. To avoid scamming on either side, use a middleman.

    Using Blacklisted Modifications (Hacking)
    [] 15 Day Ban [] 30 Day Ban [] Permanent Ban [You may appeal]

    Using any of the modifications listed as disallowed here. Remember, it’s up to the discretion of our staff to whether a hacked client is in use, however, all staff below administrator must have proof of a ban.
