Game Rules
The following rules apply to any activities carried out ingame (i.e. on the Croosade game server).

1.0 Hacking, Botting, & Exploits
1.1 Hacking
The use of third-party programs to provide a player with in-game advantages (no matter how large) is strictly prohibited.
Temporary/Permanent Ban

1.2 Botting
Botting refers to any activities that allow the player to progress or play the game without being actively involved in doing so. This includes third-party programs, macros, and also various other methods to achieve a similar result, including things such as putting heavy objects on a key (i.e. “keyweighting”)
Temporary/Permanent Ban

1.3.1 WZ Edits
Editing .wz files to gain any kind of advantage is strictly forbidden. The server automatically detects WZ edits, and will result in a ban being placed on your account.

1.3.2 Cosmetic WZ Edits
Cosmetic WZ edits are allowed, but may not be shared publicly with any other users of Croosade’s services. A user is fully responsible for any action taken against their account as a result of cosmetic WZ editing, and will not be exempt from punishment in the event that they are banned for WZ editing.
For technical reasons, at this point only edits in Effect.wz (e.g., damage skins) are possible. Please do not attempt to edit any other file, as that will cause your client not to launch.

1.4 Bug Exploits
If a player finds a serious, game-breaking bug, they are expected to report it immediately to a staff member. Exploiting a bug for your own gain, advising others of the bug, or profiting in any way from the bug, are strictly prohibited. Any user knowingly in possession of illicitly procured items, Mesos, etc. will be subject to punishment.
Temporary/Permanent Ban

2.0 Player Conduct
2.1 Spamming
Spamming, or the sending of repetitive or excessive, and insignificant messages is prohibited. This includes any form of any game communication, including Megaphones (and having conversations via Megaphones). This rule will be interpreted and enforced under staff discretion and does not apply to FM (“Free Market”) and Party Quest areas where reasonable. If you are not sure if the message holds any value that staff would see, refrain from broadcasting.
Temporary Ban

2.2 Kill-Stealing
If a player actively, and persistently kills the monsters on a map that belongs to another player, they are subject to punishment. Map ownership can be found in game by entering the “@map” command. The first player in a map will become the map owner and if that user is inactive for a period of time, they will lose their ownership to the next player in the queue.
If a player enters a map “owned” by another, they are permitted to join the map queue and wait and not interfere with the other player’s activities.
Temporary Ban

2.2.1 Area Boss Maps
Players are not allowed to abuse the @map command to wait for bosses to spawn on a mule, a character that has no ability to kill the boss that spawns, and/or a player that is not actively attempting to kill the boss. This includes long intervals between attacks over a period of time. This will all be determined by staff on a case by case basis. If a player that owns the map is not actively killing the boss, the next person in the queue has ownership of killing the area boss. Afterwards, full map ownership goes back to it's original owner.
Temporary Ban

2.3 Scamming
Scamming, or any attempts to scam others will result in punishment. This is regardless of whether the scammer is actually successful in their attempt; all that matters is that there was an attempt to scam. When offering an item or service for sale, the seller is expected to follow through with the agreed upon terms of the arrangement (e.g. the seller may not switch out an item in the trade window at the last second for the the same item with different stats).
Permanent Ban
2.3.1 False Bidding
Fake bidding, or lying about an offer on a item to increase the price is not allowed. All players participating in fake bidding will be banned.
Temporary Ban

3.0 Account Management
3.1 Account Hacking
“Hacking” - or accessing accounts that do not rightfully belong to you without explicit consent of the owner will be met with a permanent ban across all services. Engaging in any activities to facilitate this (e.g. keylogging, phishing) will also result in a permanent ban.

3.2 Account Sharing
Account sharing is not endorsed by Croosade. It is permitted, but the staff are not responsible for any losses on accounts that have been accessed by multiple users.
In case of one character being shared by multiple players for training purposes, we reserve the right to remove that character from level and job rankings for fairness reasons. Alternatively, the character in question can have levels removed if it comes out later on that sharing has taken place.

3.3 Lost Items
The staff is not obligated to refund any lost items following the hacking of an account. Compensation will not be provided in the event of rollbacks.

4.0 Miscellaneous
4.1 Services Prohibited from Buying & Selling
Players are not allowed to buy or sell, or communicate in any way with the intention to buy or sell the following: ingame names (“IGNS”), maps, and Free Market (“FM”) spots.
Temporary Ban


Forum Rules
The following rules apply to the Croosade forums. The forums have an official warning system in place, and following three active warnings, a temporary, seven-day ban will be enforced. Every 5 warnings, one will be permanent. If a user accumulates 15 warnings they will be permanently banned from the Croosade forums.
These rules are meant to generally apply to all areas of the forum, but each sub-forum is subject to specific rules which are also to be followed.

1.0 Post Content
1.1 Bumping
Bumping is only allowed in the “Free Market” section. A user may bump their own thread once every 24 hours.
