Real Life Information and Threats

Our players’ safety is one of our highest priorities. As such, we will not condone real life threats or distribution of personal information in our games. We apply severe penalties when a real life threat is made and we may also engage local law enforcement to ensure the safety of all parties involved. If an individual threatens you, please report it to us immediately through the Report Player function in-game.

We treat every reported threat as a serious offense, and will not tolerate false reporting of real life threats. If a player submits a fraudulent report marked as a real life threat, we may close that player's account.
