By creating an account on Vendetta Gaming Network, you acknowledge that we can lock/change/remove the account at any time for any reason.
The rules listed here are mainly a guideline for proper behaviour within our network and can be changed/modified at any time. Staff make the final call for what to punish.
These guidelines are subject to the staff's observation. Using the claim, "It wasn't on the rules", or "I didn't know", or "It's not worded like that" will not be tolerated and will be ignored.
The rules listed here will apply to all games on Vendetta Gaming Network, unless otherwise noted.
Should a member of staff not be online when a reportable offence takes place, please take full screenshots or videos of the incident and report them through our ticket system here.
Mutes/Bans can be appealed through the main website here.
These rules will also apply to our forums as well. If a ban is placed on your forum account, it shall not be removed and cannot be appealed.
With these rules changing and updating, past bans and mutes will still be in place and will remain in place. The updating of these rules will not effect previous/current bans/mutes/various other punishments.

Should they use your account to break the rules, your account will be the one to receive punishement.
Should an IP ban wave be sent out for someone's account, you may be banned for their actions as well. This ban may not be removed, so we do highly suggest that you do NOT account share.

ALWAYS check the item tool-tip before accepting any trades Some items may look very similar!
Make sure that you are receiving the correct item before you confirm the trade.
Section 5 - Scamming
Participating in fraud/scams to another player, within any transaction, is not allowed and will result in a permanent ban on your account.
Vendetta Staff will NEVER promote a website in-game and we will NEVER ask for your account details, nor will we PM you in-game about a "special offer" just for you. Should someone be posing as us, ignore the message and report them immediately.
The only websites affiliated to VGN can be found here.
Note: All transactions are YOUR responsibility. We will NOT restore any lost items nor will we give any sort of compensation for falling for a scam.
Section 6 - Cross Transfer of Account/Items
You are not allowed to trade any items/accounts/VGN/in-game currency for any real life currency (EUR, USD, GBP, DMK, Bitcoin, etc). You cannot hold a trade for items/accounts/VGN that are not limited to our servers alone.
Trading across servers will not be tolerated and will net you a ban across all accounts associated to you.
This does not including selling PGC cards for in-game currency. This is allowed, though we recommend that you do this with extreme caution. Should you be scammed out of any currency, you will not receive it back.
Section 7 - Buying/Selling PGC Cards
Buying/Selling PGC card rules will fall under the basic rules listed in Section 6.
While we highly recommend NOT purchasing PGC cards from other players, it is not against the rules to purchase them for in-game currency of your respective game.
Please keep this in mind though:
Should someone chargeback that card they sold to you, YOUR account will be banned for PGC fraud
Should you be scammed of the PGC card or currency, we cannot return that currency to you.
Section 8 - Fraud/Chargebacks
Should a card you purchased be flagged as fraudulent, you will be banned till the negative balance linked to your account is cleared.
You can clear this up through PGC's support page. We at VGN are unable to assist with payment issues.

Any obscene, sexual or racist names
Impersonation or attack of staff
If it is a guild name that needs to be changed, the guild leader will receive the ban till the name is changed.
Should the guild leader refuse to change the name, we will force disband the guild. If the guild appears again, it will be a permenant ban for those who helped create it.
If it is a guild icon that needs to be changed, the guild leader will be 1 day to comply with the request before the guild leader is banned.

Promoting your twitch stream in-game may be done, but cannot be spammed in chat.
Section 11 - Staff Impersonation
Under no circumstances are you able to impersonate a member of staff.
Using any sort of exploit to "change" your name in-game to make your chat messages appear as a staff member will not be tolerated and may result in your account being banned.
Should your name be similar to a staff member, you may be asked to change it. If so, regulations for this will fall under Section 9.
Section 12 - Staff Harassment
There is a zero tolerance policy in place for staff harassment.
Should you be found harassing a member of staff, you will be banned/muted for those actions. Appeals for these bans/mutes will also be ignored and you will serve out the full length of the punishment.
Should you use an alternative account/character to dodge the punishment on your main account, the duration of your punishment will be increased on your main, and the alt will be permanently banned.
Continuation of these actions after your punishment has expired will result in a longer one being placed on your account, up to a permanent ban.
Should you believe a staff member's warning to you was wrong or out of place, then directly message them in private bringing up your issue with the warning. Should you have any additional issue with the warning/member of staff, bring it up in a ticket to a higher member of staff.
Flaming/harassing the staff member about said warning in world chat/speaker/shouts will only net you a longer mute or ban. Staff require civility and respect in these situations, and do not deserve flaming/harassment back for something you believe was out of line.
