    In-Game Chat Rules
    What's Acceptable & What's Inappropriate

    Recently, it's come to our attention that there's been an increase in inappropriate/offensive messages being posted within the Castle Creeps Battle's In-Game Chat. This can/will lead players receiving Bans/Chat Bans and we'd like to take this opportunity to make it clear what is and what isn't acceptable when posting messages in Chat.

    With the above in mind, we'd like to suggest that a good rule of thumb to follow, to avoid receiving a Ban/Chat Ban, would be to apply the Forum Rules whenever posting in in-game Chat. Obviously, we don't mind the odd swear word, as long as it's not directed at any individual, clan or group.

    We've included an edited version of the forum rules below with a list of the rules that directly apply to In-Game Chat, please read these rules and try to follow them at all times to avoid any repercussions.

    Comments may NOT include any of the following:
    • Obscene, offensive, hateful or inflammatory comments, also known as "Trolling" and/or "Flame Baiting".
    • You will not purposely provoke other people in order to start arguments, also known as "Trolling".
    • Be malicious to any other player.
    • Be likely to harass, upset, embarrass alarm or annoy any other person.
    • You must not engage in arguments with other players publicly. We encourage debate but should you need to resolve an argument please do so via Private Message.
    • Additionally, venting will not be tolerated. If you are too emotional to post coherently, but just feel like ranting on and on about something you are upset about, please don't.
    • To be absolutely clear, you may not post any content that mocks, denounces, ridicules or disparages any religion, belief system, lifestyle choice, race, gender, sexuality or nationality. Posting such content is grounds for an immediate ban.
    • Content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, vulgar, tortuous, defamatory, obscene, invasive of another's privacy, or hateful.
    • Discriminating comments based on, disability, age, racial or ethnic backgrounds. Posting such content is grounds for an immediate ban.
    • Any form of swearing, sexually explicit or abusive remarks directed at other community members is not allowed.
    • Posts and comments may not include misspelled or starred out swearing, also known as "Masked Swearing".
    • Include "Callouts" for the purpose of publicly shaming members of the community and/or online players.
