    Feenix Server Team takes great effort in working and cooperating with all members. However, be aware that we do moderate our community. the graver the behavior, the less lenient we are. Raging at, rioting against, or any other kind of verbal abuse towards our team or community members, is never tolerated.

    Please be aware, our rules may differ from retail rules in some cases. At most this is due to being a free to play private project, and our different state of management and offering of services

    to use it!




    Game Rules and Fair gameplay

Please be aware, our rules may differ from retail rules in some cases. At most this is due to being a free to play private project, and our different state of management and offering of services


         Hacking

          Hacking is taken as the use of any third party program that directly interacts with gameplay.
          In most cases these are used to gaina certain behavior or feature that would not be accessible
          without. Being found using any kind of hack on our realms wil always result in an immediate
          and permanent suspension from our services.

         Exploiting

          An exploit, in video games, is the use of a bug or design flaw by a player to their advantage in
          a manner not intended by the game's designers. The existence of a bug never grants permission
          for players to exploit it, neither will the presence of a bug ever justify its (ab)use.
