A large amount of the RTs we get are about players who are using inappropriate language. Because of this we would like to clarify what the rules are so players can be better informed so they know what NOT to do.
Fair Play Rules
You may not use any language that is offensive, of racist nature, obscene or otherwise inappropriate. This includes, but is not limited to, all manners of swearing, threats, blackmail, discussion of recreational drugs, sexually explicit language and racism or anything prejudice. As offensive language can interpreted in many forms, it will be the mandate of Aeria Games & Entertainment to make a determination as to whether or not a 'reasonable person' would feel offended and act accordingly.
So lets break this down.
This language will result in a ban and includes anyone who says these in English or another language. Also note that we do have an in-game filter in place however many words are not filtered. Just because a word is not filtered does NOT make it ok to say.
Ban guidelines for language offenses:
- Racist language
- anything obscene
- discussing recreational drugs
- sexual explicit language
- anything prejudice
- anything where a 'reasonable person' would feel offended
Offensive Language or GM/GS Non-Compliance
Minor Offense: 3 Days
Major Offense: 1 Week
Major/Repeat Offense: Permanent Account Suspension
Things we will NOT ban a player for:
- Common use acroymns such as wtf, lmao
- Words such as crap, poop, noob, and other elementary level insults.
