No one benefits from using bugs, exploits or utilizing unfair game tactics as it imbalances the playing field for everyone. R2 works diligently to ensure the gaming experience for everyone is fair. However, there are individuals that will try and tip the scales improperly in their favor.

On that topic, we have been receiving a plethora of reports that some players are abusing certain mechanics of the game or outright cheating. We appreciate these private messages. However, we need more concrete proof as most of these requests for inquiry are resulting in being non-issues.
We need the following for any report:

  • Player Reported
  • Server Number/Timezone
  • Full Description
  • Screenshots/Logs/“Proof”

The above can be posted here or via PM to a moderator if the issue is critical.

Please use discretion when reporting players and ensure you have adequate proof. Nothing is more disheartening than receiving a report with missing/incomplete information.

Thank you and happy gaming!

R2 is aware of a “popular memory editing program” being used in-game and can detect its use on every client-side activity. Any manipulation of client-side variables will result in severe repercussions. Please do not abuse this. Thank you!

Please do not abuse the guildmember cooldown exploit. Thank you!

There is a thread here arguing its merits and the ultimate decision made by R2 staff.

Edit: This has been fixed.

Account sharing (borrowing, ‘sitting’, gifting or anything of that ilk), account trading and RMT for accounts/items/services of any kind are prohibited. Please do not utilize any of these methods or activities. Thank you!

We are having issues with chargebacks. A chargeback is a way for a consumer to have a financial institution forcibly return funds back to the consumer. Please work with R2 and with the company used to complete the transaction as this is a serious action – else the account(s) in question will be terminated. Thank you!

Scripts of any sort (for example, to farm in the wild) are also not allowed. Please do not pursue this endeavor. Thank you!

Since players are continuously asking about the “multiple account” rule, here is a statement made by a senior:

You CAN have multiple accounts. This protects several things including but not limited to:

  • Families who play the same game
  • Roommates/Friends at the same house who play the same game
  • Players who want to experience different factions or test aspects of the game
  • Players who are tired of an account and want to try a new account

Those accounts CANNOT interact with each other. This covers several things including but not limited to:

  • Using alternate/multiple accounts in the same alliance
  • Using alternate/multiple accounts to spy on other alliances
  • Using alternate/multiple accounts to farm resources
  • Using alternate/multiple accounts to artificially bulk-up your fighting records (fake fights)
  • Using alternate/multiple accounts to weaken other players/wilds for your main
  • Using alternate/multiple accounts to “mule” or hold items for your main
  • Using alternate/multiple accounts to break the TOS in an attempt to shield your main
  • Using alternate/multiple accounts to do anything that would be a violation of the TOS

As a reminder, account sharing is still against the rules.

Players found to be violating our rules regarding the use of multiple accounts may be banned without notice. Don’t have your accounts interact and you won’t have a problem.

As of current inquiry, it is still allowable to spawnkill during a guildbattle/guildwar event. This may change in the future. Thank you!

Though players should use common sense, anyone scamming, offering free leveling/gold services/VIP/‘real life’ products and other false promises will be dealt with accordingly. If it seems too good to be true, it usually is. Thank you!

There is an exploit that allows players to enter any MPD. Please do not utilize this. Thank you!

Edit: This has been fixed.

There is an exploit to unlock new features. Please do not utilize this – as this is a serious breech and will imbalance the playing field. Thank you!

Update: Any users caught using this hack/exploit will be banned without question – cash player or not. There is no “middle ground”; no “accidents”; no “it just happened” responses – your account(s) are frozen indefinitely.

Edit: This has been fixed.

There is an exploit regarding the catacombs/crypt. Any players caught using this will have serious issues with which to contend. Please do not use this. Thank you!

Edit: This has been fixed.

There has been an increase of player names that impersonate R2 staff (e.g.: R2Joey, R2Leonidas, SpecialR2). As any other MMO has put forth, this impersonation – whether intentional or not – will result in an instant name change and/or suspension of the account. Please do not continue the trend. Thank you!

There is an exploit involving astrals. If you are caught using this, you will be banned as this unbalances the playing field. Please do not use this. Thank you!

Edit: This has been fixed.

There has been an increase in the number of bans due to the aforementioned exploit. It is easily tracked based off of star point purchases/GUI button selection.

If you are caught, you will be banned. If you come forward (private message, in-game private message, email), there will be considerations. If you wait until getting caught or confronted, the chances of continuing to play are diminished significantly.

Defenses akin to, “I don’t read the forums,” or “I only did it a little bit,” or “I was just testing,” carry no weight. Again, coming forward is the only salvation one can hope to achieve regarding “accidents” such as this.

Thank you!

There is an exploit involving forcing the AFK mode back into the crypt/catacombs. This is easily traceable since the GUI button (if forced) still has a database value that can be queried. Please don’t utilize this. Thank you!

 
Flag Post

There is an exploit using certain guild functions. Again, this is easily tracked by the true guild function versus the illegitimate one. Please do not utilize this. Thank you!

There is an issue involving Warrior’s Call being used outside of its intended functions. Please do not utilize this in this way. Thank you!
