1: Play however you want.
2: Don’t be a jerk.
3: When Rule #1 and Rule #2 conflict, see Rule #2.
Note: This Alliance does not condone the use of exploits/cheating, as defined by Cryptic/PWE. Cheating hurts the game and the reputation of our guilds and Alliance (thus a direct violation of Rule #2 and Rule #3), and will not be tolerated. Regardless of the guild you are in, anyone found to be cheating or advocating such behavior in any way will be removed from the Alliance, added to our permanent ban list, and reported to Cryptic. The general process will be to issue a warning to ensure members have the chance to discontinue this behavior, but failure to comply will result in the above mentioned actions. No exceptions of any kind – status, rank, time in guild, or level. Cheating and cheaters have no place in this Alliance.
Alliance Chat Rules
- Avoid politics, race, religion, and generally divisive topics in Alliance chat.
- No trading (soliciting for buyers) in Alliance or guild chat; use PM, in-game trade channels, or the discord trade requests channel.
- Do not beg in chat (asking for freebies).
- Do not ask for IL when forming a group in Alliance chat (there is also no need to post your IL when asking to join).
- A. First come first serve when forming groups in Alliance chat. People should not be excluded because you think they may not be “good enough”. If they meet the requirements and they plus up, they should be invited.
B. If you post looking for more in Alliance chat please give Alliance a fair chance before filling the queue with outsiders.
- If someone asks you to discontinue a topic of conversation then stop.
Issues and Escalations
If you have a problem with another member please do not “have it out” in Alliance chat channel. This is what PMs are for. If you cannot sort your grievances out amongst yourselves then please take screenshots and contact your guild leader. Remember, without screenshots the issue did not happen.
Note on Bans
If you are banned or removed from any guild in the Alliance for cause, you will not be admitted into another guild in the Alliance, you are banned from the Alliance.
If you have rights to take X number of things out per day, that doesn’t necessarily give you the right to take that number of items out every single day. That is considered abuse. Those numbers are limits to make sure someone doesn’t just clear out a repository on a whim and leave, it’s not actually a daily allowance. That said, DO NOT feel bad about taking items from the guild bank, just don’t be abusive about it. Taking a load of stuff one time — for whatever reason — is fine. Taking a load of stuff several days in a row is NOT OK.
Your consumption of bank resources should be generally offset by your contribution.
That doesn’t mean you have to trade each time – but if you have been taking from the bank, you should also be contributing to it over time. There’s no hard and fast scale here, just use common sense — we don’t need a lot of junk in the bank, but if you’ve taken some epic gear, the next time you come into some epic gear, think about dropping it in the bank instead of selling/salvaging/refining it. Same with enchants or refinement stuff. Just remember it’s a communal resource.
Bank abuse will result in you being banned from the guild, which, as noted above, results in a ban from any guild in the alliance.
