Server Rules  


Admin Rules 

A ) You may not openly insult, berate, or 'verbally' abuse any Wurm Online Team member via any method. 

B ) You will obey any directive or instruction given by a Game Master. 

C ) You may not deliberately supply members with false information. 

D ) You may never impersonate any Admin. 

Punishment: You may be warned or banned based on the situation.  Breaking rule D will be punished much more severely. 

  

  

  

Naming of accounts, deeds, or items  

A ) You may not use any name that conflicts with chat rules 

B ) Names must not violate the rights of any individual or company, nor be used to impersonate any public figure. 


Punishment:  Violation may result in loss of deed, items. 

  

  

Macros 

Definition: A macro is any software/hardware that automates the sending of actions to the game  server without user interaction and is not permitted. 

A ) Key locking (IE weighing down a key on your keyboard) is not permitted. 

B ) Multiboxing (automated sending of actions to more than one client at the same time) is not permitted. 


Attendance required: 

Make sure to attend your game session when performing actions. If you use keybinds and send actions that finish often, make sure that your actions have desired effect before starting a new queue in case you watch TV or do something similar that steals your attention. When performing actions that you start more seldom and take a long time to finish (such as fishing or training shields) you still need to verify that you have a valid target now and then when starting the action which should be no problem. In case we notice that you are not attending the game and express prolonged robotic behavior where your actions have no effect you risk being banned for automated play. This will of course not happen when playing normally or being afk. You also have to make sure to respond to any popup questions that may occur due to such perceived automation. 


  

Punishment: First offence - Permanent avatar ban.  Second offence - Loss of all avatars/accounts and permanent ip ban. 

 - Penalties for macro abuse may be applied at any time pending GM review, even if you have discontinued abusing a macro at time of penalty. 

 - Use of the 'G' keys on a G series keyboard, mouse, or other similar product is permitted to send multiple actions simultaneously (without any default, built-in, or added delay timings) in order to fill your in game ACTION QUEUE provided you do NOT use any sort of repeat function.
