Rule #10- Scamming
Scamming is not tolerated. The definition for scamming is for example-Do not offer to overcharge/discount and run away with somebody's money. Do not trick people by selling them a "slotted" item that really isn't. Do not try to get other players to give you their account information. Conduct all trades in-game or on the forum. That way we have logs. If you are making a trade in-game, have a chat about it first. A chat log saying "I'll give you a slotted helm" followed by a trade of an un-slotted helm is helpful evidence for us to reverse the trade. The trade logs alone aren't always sufficient.

Reporting: Screenshot if available.

Punishment:

  • First Offence: 1 Week Jail Time
  • Second Offence: Ban

Rule #11 - Chat Rooms and Vendors

Rule: #12 - NO Multi Clienting In Events and Battlegrounds
Multi Client or Dual Client usage is allowed to be done here on Amistr, with the exceptions of a few instances. You are NOT allowed to multi client/Dual Client in events, or in battlegrounds.

Battlegrounds have been modified in a few ways to make it so multi client/dual client usage is not needed. For example there is a 5 versus 5 battlegrounds and levels requirements have been reduced.

Special Note: You may have multiple clients signed into Amistr at the same time, BUT you may only have one client present in the Battlegrounds or event. This also means you may not have at the same time 1 account in one set of battlegrounds, and 1 client in another set of battlegrounds. Buff Slaves for example may be present in the entrance of the battle grounds but they may not take part in the battlegrounds round as it would become a multi client.

Punishment
  • First offense: Jail- 24hours - 1 week Jail time.
  • Second offense: 1 Day 1 week Account ban.
  • Third offense: Permanent Ban.



Rule #13- Do Not Act Stupid
It's hard to give this rule much of a description, but don't do anything that, while not being listed above, is obviously something that would not be allowed.

Punishment: For acting stupid varies depending on the level of stupidity.
