Gift Purchases / Real World Trading

We do not allow trading of Brawl store purchases for anything from a third party or external source. This includes Minecraft accounts, Counter-Strike skins, money, etc. In addition, you may not trade Brawl store purchases in return for a player to join your in-game clan, give in-game items to you, etc.

Basically, all purchases on the Brawl store should either be for yourself or a pure gift to another player.

We will not switch purchases or return your money if you are making a store purchase in trade for another object. Instead, you will be punished for real world trading.

Alternate Accounts

Players are allowed to play on other accounts as long as they do not use these accounts to violate any restrictions in-game. We do not allow players to use accounts that are not owned by them. Any extra accounts used by the player need to be purchased by the player, or they could suffer discipline. This means that you are responsible for any accounts that you have logged on. If they suffer a discipline, you will too.

You are not allowed to use alternate accounts if you have a total of 3 lifetime bans (that were not appealed) across all of your accounts. You will be permanently banned from Brawl if you violate this rule.

Warnings

The warning system delivers escaling punishments based on the offense. There are several different categories to cover all possible offenses and they all have a unique set of escalating punishments as well as an expiration time. Only warnings that have not expired account for the given punishments. To view your own active warnings, you can use /warnings.

  • Don't advertise other servers.
  • Do not attempt to sell or trade your Minecraft account on the forums

    • Another individual’s content

Signature Restrictions

While we already have limitations on the amount of lines, images and such on signatures there are some things we cannot restrict automatically. Here are the specific rules for what content you may not have in your signature.

  • Don't advertise your moderator application.
  • Don't include images of swear words.
  • Don't include images or video links of hackers, glitchers, or cheaters.
  • Don't include images of people accusing you (or others) of hacks.
  • Don't include rapidly flashing GIF images. (seizure images)
  • All forum rules apply to signatures.

We will remove any content that violates these rules from your signature and issue a warning on your account. If you continue to put rule violating content in your signature you will be restricted from editing it.

Grave-digging / Bumping

Grave-digging is when you post an unneeded reply on an old thread (usually a month or two old). When this is done it brings it to the top of the thread listing. This is very annoying because the content usually doesn't need to be brought back up.​

Please keep in mind that we do not want old, resolved threads to be grave-dug. If you are wanting to add something to the topic that hasn't discussed please post on that old thread rather then creating a new one.

Example: There is a three month old topic discussing a new feature that should be added to war. You think of this idea, or a very similar idea, and you are wanting to post about it. Rather then making a whole new thread to discuss this similar feature, just post on the old three month old topic.

If you see a pointless post on an old (newly posted on) topic that you think doesn't add to the discussion please report it immediately. Do not reply to the post and say something about how they grave-dug the thread, bumped, etc.. this causes more work for us because we have to clean up the thread before we take action.
