Information on Terms & Policies for Custom Servers & Services
[hr:2bd9d3lo][/hr:2bd9d3lo]

For select services and servers, the New Team of Weapons and Tactics operates two distinct types: No Rules and Custom Rules. 'No Rules' servers (sometimes loosely referred to as 'standard' servers) have basic rules that were standardized by the New Team of Weapons and Tactics and feedback from the player community whereas 'Custom Rules' servers have rules that vary from server-to-server. Beginning June 2014, the terms 'No Rules' are no required by policy to be part of the game server name — servers are of the 'No Rules' type unless otherwise specified.

Due to the varying dynamic nature of rules and policies in 'Custom Rules' game servers, such game servers have been required to list their rules in the server description. In the case where terms and/or policies will not fit or the server owners and/or administrators wish not to place them in the server description, they must be posted within this section of our Community Forums, in the appropriate section.

As a final note, though Custom servers may have varying rules, any and all activity involving hacking, cheating, glitching — or otherwise — is strictly prohibited. More specifically, as per our global Terms of Service:


"Glitching" (the abuse and/or manipulation of in-game, requisite software, and/or hardware to take advantage of unintended results or results which grant one or more parties with one or more unfair advantages) and "hacking" (abuse and/or manipulation of faulty systems securities to access or alter core infrastructures either via directly or with the use of additional vendor or third-party tools, hardware, and/or software) during ranked matches in any game server (collectively "cheating") is strictly prohibited on all New Team of Weapons and Tactics servers. Examples of cheating include the usage of — but is not limited to — system memory scanners, network interruption devices, lag switches, and modified controllers. "Statpadding" (the abuse and/or manipulation of in-game, requisite software, and/or hardware to illegitimately gain in-game points or rank) also constitutes cheating and as such, is strictly prohibited.

The New Team of Weapons and Tactics reserves the right to enforce temporary or permanent bans on players either caught or suspected of cheating. In events where only circumstantial evidence exists, the New Team of Weapons and Tactics reserves the right to finalize decisions based on internal administrator reviews. The New Team of Weapons and Tactics reserves the right to archive or remove evidence for incidents and/or reports older than 30 days. In order to improve the overall player experience for the general public, the New Team of Weapons and Tactics reserves the right to publish and/or broadcast the names and/or aliases of players who were caught or suspected of cheating, with or without consent.

Tips

For best results, be sure to post a full, detailed layout of your server's terms and its policies. If something is not mentioned, it may be safely assumed that it is not a rule. Hacking, glitching, or cheating is strictly prohibited on all servers — regardless of type . Server Owners and/or Administrators found to be operating servers that condone any of the aforementioned activities will be terminated without warning.
