    GamezNetwork Official Game Rules
    Español Filipino Deutsch ελληνικά Português Magyarul

    Hello lovely folks, after talking to Carl we have decided the rules could use a bit of an update/rewording along with a bit of clarification on existing rules.

    Do be sure to read them over as to not get caught with your trousers down (or so the saying goes) as 90% of the rules have been rewritten for additional clarity. There's also a new spawn camping rule you should all bear in mind even though we were already enforcing it =)

    Also a thanks to all of those, more than I care to list over Gamez's two year history, that have helped us to shape and evolve these rules to where they are today.

    Forum Rules:
    Our forum rules and policies can be found in the following thread, when posting be sure to keep them in mind: Forum Rules and Policies


    In-game Rules (All Gamez Servers)
    I. General Rules
    • You may not use cheats, automated software, hacks, or any type of unauthorized third-party software designed to modify client behavior (especially to gain an advantage) unless authorized to do so by Gamez Network Management.
    • You may not use or exploit any type of glitch, bug or unintended feature for personal gain. This rule also covers the communication of such bugs, it is strictly prohibited to encourage or inform any other user of bugs which may be abused to disturb game balance. All bugs should be reported directly to staff via a pm
    • Note: If you believe a bug is too game breaking to be reported openly you can PM it directly to @Lautaro or @Carl or our Senior Staff (Current: @Puddles, @Noyah)
    • Multi-boxing (logging in multiple characters) is not permitted while participating in events. Outside of events however is fine.
    • Disagreeing with the punishment of a staff member in-game is not acceptable. Bans can be appealed in the ban system (Here) and users may leave general feedback for staff, please send a pm to a H.GM or Admin feedback is hidden to everyone except GamezNetwork management.
    • You may not propagate rumors and slander about the server or GamezNetwork Staff.
    • While playing GamezAion you must respect the rights of others and their rights to play and enjoy the game. To this end, you may not defraud, harass or threaten other players.
    • You may not impersonate any staff member of the GamezNetwork.
    • You may not modify any part of the GamezAion client without permission from the GamezAion staff. The use of language packs and the item.pak for trading are excluded from this rule.
    • You may not advertise the intent to or commit the act of buying or selling items/characters/accounts for real-world cash (Better known as RMT).
    • Voting on multiple accounts is strictly prohibited and being caught doing so will result in a ban of every account owned by you.
    • You may not organize nor be a member of any pledges or groups within Gamez that are based on or encourage any racist, sexist, anti-religious, anti-ethnic, anti-gay, or other hate mongering philosophies.
    • Do not spam at all in-game, this includes trade spam.
    • Do not beg for items/kinah.
    • Scamming players is strictly prohibited.
    • No advertising of any other Aion private server.
    • Spawn-Camping: While you may kill players at their obelisks we do not permit excessive spawn camping. If you are camping an obelisk to the point where you are completely stopping other players from playing the game/being forced to log out we will interfere accordingly. The aforementioned is not PvP, it's target-practice.
    • Inapropriate names will not be allowed, while we will take this on a case to case basis upon the severity of the name it will be changed by the administration
    II. Tips
    • You are the one responsible of your Gamez account information. We will not ask your account info neither password. Should your account be compromised it is your responsibility to deal with, we cannot compensate for a player's inability or unwillingness to ensure their account data is secure.
    • We strongly recommend to not share your account information with anyone, especially if you don't know the person in real life. If you do so, we will be unable to compensate you if your account is stolen.
    • Visiting sites providing dubious or illegal content can result in your computer being infected even if you don't download anything at all.
    III. Laws
    • You absolutely may NOT disrupt or hack any computer used to support the Gameznetwork. Any attempt to enforce disruption against our network will be dealt with accordingly.
    • During your time on our realms you may not encourage or broadcast breaking any laws (local or otherwise)
    Our Guidelines to what is required for proof. Here

    In-Game Punishments
    original drafted by Bryne <3


    Progressive Bans (Temporary into Permanent)
    Since it has been noticed that players are getting slightly high in count with the forms of different temporary account suspensions. This will be in effect as of 2015/11/24. If, total instances of Temporary Ban issues exceeds five (5), we will at that point consider the person(s) responsible for such actions in disregard of our current rule set. Therefore at such a time the account will be locked on a permanent basis. Any, temporary ban issues prior to 2015/11/23 will not be counted toward this total, though standing ruling and punishments will still apply if prior violations have occurred and hence forth be counted to this total of five (5) maximum allowed temporary account suspensions.

    • Updated all Temporary Ban time frames so they were consistent with each-other.
    • Permanent Bans
      • Merged Scamming, Advertising, Phishing as they all equated to the same thing.

    Update - 2016/02/17

    Progressive Bans
    1. GP/AP Abuse
      • Modified TAS (Temporary Account Suspension) time frames.
      • Removed 3rd / 4th Offense
      • 3rd Offense is now PAS (Permanent Account Suspension)
    2. Harassment, Etc
      • Added general notation that these will be taken on a case to case and severity of the content, context, as well as other factors.
      • These may or may not follow the 1 - 4 listing of progressive bans.
    3. Bug Abuse
      • Added 'Warning'
      • This is to allow for certain situations where the bug may not be intentionally being abused. Highly dependent on the bug or issue at hand. (i.e. Ranger Buff Skills as of 4.8 update)
      • This 'Warning' does not and will not ever count against bug abuse strikes. It is for the sole purpose of having it documented that we are using this as a method of more stringent notification.
      • All Warning issues, will be accompanied with an In-Game Mail from the Issuing GM to notify the player of the issue and what they may have been doing.
