Punishment Ladder

Below you can find our punishment ladder for violations. If you are still unsure whether something is against the rules, ask a staff member. If you need additional assistance on the server, consider opening a ticket in our Discord.

  • We reserve the right to alter the length of punishments.
  • Punishment types increase in duration upon subsequent violation no matter the specific rule broken.
  • Staff are required to warn you if you commit a violation without any previous warning or punishment on your record. Exceptions include extreme cases of any violation or severe infractions.
  • If a staff member does not follow protocol and issues a punishment for a mute or jail-related rule violation on a player with a clean record without warning, submit an appeal.
  • If you have a warn or punishment on your record for a similar violation, you will not be warned before being muted or jailed.
  • We reduce any alt ban to 30 days when a main account is unbanned.
  • When a player ban evades, the ban is reset fully if more than 50% time remains. The remaining time is doubled if less than 50% of time remains.
