1. Language & Chat
1.1 Please use only English in global chat. You can use whatever language you want in faction chat.
We tolerate other languages as well but once you start dirty talk in other languages you will be warned / punished.
1.2 Don’t spam - you should reasonably space your messages so as to allow others conversation.
1.3 Obvious advertisement or troll posts or troll behavior identified by admins may result in a player being instantly removed without warnings.
2. Behavior & Community
2.1 Please be respectful to others, even those not in your direct global conversation. This means: No racism, no sexist remarks, no shaming or verbal abuses.
2.2 It is widely acknowledged that ‘Smack Talking’ is a big part of any competitive sport. When doing so, please be mindful that you are in a game with dozens or even hundreds of others who can see you. Know your limits, and limit your passion to a reasonable degree. Comments that are explicitly intended to be defamatory or to provoke others should be kept off of global chat. Just in case: make use of the “Mute chat” feature by pressing B and click on the Speaker icon for that player you want to mute.
2.3 HWS is a family friendly server. Do not post swearing or other bad words in global chat - keep it clean!
2.4 Religion, Politics, Gender topics do NOT belong in the game! Use Reddit or other discussion pages on the web if you wish to discuss these topics.
2.5 You may not use vulgarity, swear words or defamatory words/phrases in your structure, steam account, forum name, or other naming opportunities. Regardless of whether Steam allows it, usernames which violate this rule may be banned. This of course applies to faction names as well. This decision is strictly up to the judgement of admins available, and is not a matter up for debate.
2.6 Forum & Discord Accounts: When you register, please use your in-game name! Otherwise, we don’t know if you are a spambot, and can’t help you with your in-game problems.
