1 - Gameplay Rules


1.1 - Inappropriate Usernames, Skins and Capes
Do not use any inappropriate usernames, skins or capes on our server. Any player who does will be banned until the inappropriate name, skin or cape is changed. Any usernames, skins, or capes with sexual content or offensive behaviour are not allowed.

1.2 - Cheating / Blacklisted Mods
Do not use any client or modification that provides an unfair advantage over other players. Modifications similar to kill aura, flight, x-ray, auto-clickers, and chest-esp are a few examples of blacklisted modifications. Go to the "Modifications" section for a list of allowed modifications.

1.3 - Clicking Methods

We recommend not using clicking methods, such as "butterfly clicking" or "drag clicking," as there is a possibility of being banned by our anti-cheat. Additionally, macros or any software/hardware that modifies how your mouse click function works and any method that clicks for you or modifies the number of clicks you are clicking is considered cheating and will result in a punishment.

1.4 - Bug Abuse

Do not attempt or use any bugs or exploits to gain unfair advantages. If you find any bug and do not report it and decide to use it or share it, it could also result in a punishment. Ask a staff member if you are not sure if one thing is a bug/exploit.

Do not use multiple accounts to gain an advantage in-game or boost stats, such as using alternate accounts to fill games or to boost your stats.

Do not attempt to stream snipe or purposely ruin games for streamers by targeting, following or giving items to streamers. This is only allowed if the streamer specifies that they would like to be targeted.

All other server rules still apply.

Do not use or create any building/machine to lag out the server, crash or make the game unplayable for other players.

Do not use any machine/method to load chunks while a player is not in them, as this causes an unnecessary amount of lag.

4.4 - Using Bugs and Exploits
Do not attempt or use any bugs or exploits to gain unfair advantages, such as using composters to "x-ray" and more. Redstone bugs and 0-tick pistons/farms are not allowed. Ask a staff member if you are unsure if something is a bug/exploit.
