TQ Games Rules
Conquer Online, Eudemons Online, Crazy Tao and The Warlords are MMORPG in which thousands of players from all over the world meet everyday. In order to ensure that our games are fun for everyone, GM (Game Masters) expect all players to behave in a reasonable and friendly manner.
91 Entertainment appoints Game Masters who have the power to stop destructive behavior in the game or on the official website by penalizing or banning characters or accounts, as well as the items contained within.
In your exciting travels in the world of TQ games, you'll be given the choice to provide a fitting name for your character. This is your chance to make a name that will show the world your style and flair (and maybe even tickle a funnybone or two)! This isn't the only naming you'll be able to do, as you can name your guild/legion, clan/family, or pets! While we want you to be creative and love your names, we do ask that you show some discretion and taste in the names you choose.
Some guidelines to keep in mind when choosing a name:
-No racial/ethnic/national based epithets or slurs
-No sexual or violent references or terms (extreme or otherwise)
-No vulgar or obscene language.
-No harassing or defamatory references to players, TQ, or TQ employees.
-No advertising of other games, websites, companies, organizations, or other non-TQ related entities.
-Gibberish or nonsensical words
-Netspeak or other non-English languages
There are a variety of ways that we can punish players who break these rules, and these include a warning, forced alteration of forbidden character/guild/clan/pet name, suspension or temporary/permanent isolation.
Trading of in-game items, accounts and TQ Points.
-Buying or selling items, accounts, and TQ Points for money or other compensation outside of the game.
-Promoting/advertising the buying or selling of items, accounts, and TQ Points for money or compensation outside the game.
-Should you incur any loss as a result of out of game trading or trading for real life money, TQ Digital is not responsible and will not support or investigate these transactions. The data and information on the game servers is the property of TQ Digital and cannot be bought or sold without the written permission of TQ Digital.
To provide players with a better gaming environment, TQ will severely punish all players found to be responsible for stealing an account. Players may also be punished for purposely allowing an account to be hacked, falsely claiming an account to be stolen, or assisting in the theft of an account. TQ also reserves the right to pursue legal action in these cases, and may investigate how they choose. Players may be asked to provide specific information while an investigation for account theft is ongoing.
Your account is where your characters, game items, and any other data are stored. Someone with the password for an account is free to access characters, inventory, and all other aspects of your account information. If someone logs into an account using the valid password, changes made to the characters or account information may not be reversible, nor is TQ liable for any damage that occurs.
Harassment and Abuse
While you play TQ games, whether in public chat (World and Talk) or Broadcast, harassment is not allowed. This includes both clear and implied language, as well as languages other than English.
Harassment and abuse includes:
-Vulgar language and obscenities.
-Slander, defamatory speech, insults, or flames against players or TQ employees.
-Subjects of an extremely sexual or violent nature.
-Racial, ethnic, or national slurs and symbols.
-Slurs or insults relating to sexual orientation.
-Speech involving negative references/portrayals of major religions or religious figures.
-Releasing real-life information or threats involving violence outside of the game world.
-Slandering or encouraging negative views or actions against players, the game, or company, in TQ games, websites, or forums.
-Spamming of public chats (World and Talk) or Broadcast, which can be defined as excessively repeating the same or similar phrases, incoherent text or gibberish, or repeating the same speech more than once in a short time.
-Impersonating system announcements/GM/TQ employee to scam or harass others in or outside the game.
-Promotion or advertising of non-TQ related games, businesses, organizations, or websites.
Third party programs, Cheats, Bots, Hacks, and Client Editing
A 3rd party program is any file or program not contained in the official game client or software, used to gain an advantage or benefit in the game. This includes, but is not limited to, programs or devices that allow the ability to automatically aim at specific targets, increase speed, visual range, automate the leveling of skills or actions in the game, or to manipulate the data between your computer and the CO servers, among others. Not only are these programs not in the best interests of the game or community, they can often cause unwanted effects to the game or contain harmful viruses or keyloggers. If caught, you run the risk of losing your items, character, or maybe even the account.
This includes, but is not limited to:
-Using, distributing, or promoting the use of bots, hacks, or other 3rd party programs that alter the game-play or provide functions not available in the official client.
-Use of macros or outside devices that would allow automation of your character, or allows functions not available in an unmodified client.
-Editing the game client in any way. For example, by adding or removing files from the official client, changing settings through editing game files, changing colors or visual game effects, changing or modifying the GUI, etc...
Abuse of In-game Bugs or Exploits of Game Features
Abuse of in-game bugs or exploits of game features, which would include any actions or activities not intended by game design, which can affect the economy, the client, player characters, or the community. These types of exploits and abuse can have an enormous impact on the game and the enjoyment of the players. As such, we take these issues seriously, and will not hesitate to take necessary action against those choosing to partake in this behavior.
These things include, but are not limited to:
-Bugs or exploits performed accidentally, intentionally, maliciously, or repeatedly.
-Damages caused to characters, game-play, game economy, or service of the game.
-Abuse of game mechanics and systems or promotion/advertising of said bug/exploit.
-Spreading, utilizing, or causing Game Bugs
A scam is defined as the act of acquiring items or accounts from another person through deceptive, deceitful, or fraudulent means. We do our best to provide secure means to trade and play without worry, but you may come across other players who may try to trick or cheat you while trading or through other means.
This can include promoting fake websites that advertise free items or accounts in-game, installing hidden viruses from unofficial or dangerous websites and programs, players asking to "borrow" your accounts or items by promising to upgrade them, or players impersonating GMs or TQ employees threatening action if you don't give them something.
If you are scammed in the game, you should contact a GM or the Help Desk on the website to report your case. While we cannot guarantee full reimbursement in all cases, we will do our best to verify your case and assist you as we can.
In order to prevent players from carelessly trading or playing without regard to their account and item security, we cannot accept all scam cases submitted.
We encourage our players to always take steps to protect your accounts and items while enjoying the game.
-Be sure to always verify what you are trading with other players. Some players may try to act like they are lagging or constantly change the price or quality of items. Always double check the trade box before clicking Ok. Buyers, beware!
-Do not take part in trades over different servers or games.
-Be sure to keep your account and items safe by not sharing them with others. In the digital world, you should never trust someone you don't really know with your hard earned items and characters. Never give away something that you aren't willing to lose.
-Keep your account information and password secret, and do not share it with others.
-Real TQ employees will never ask you for items or gold, or promise to give you aid for you to give up items or account information.
There may be a time while you wander the land of TQ games when you encounter a strange, blue Pig-elephant floating around. Don't be scared! This is just one of the many GMs that help take care of our wonderful world. Whether you just happen to see one, or if they come looking for you, it's important to remember to be respectful and friendly, just like they will for you!
Should a GM contact you in-game, they will always have a distinct look that separates them from normal players. This is the best way to be sure you're speaking with a real GM, and not someone just impersonation one. Should anyone claim to be a GM without having this unique look, you should report them to us immediately at the Help Desk or through our service email.
You may be contacted by a GM to be asked to cease certain behavior, warned for violations, or possibly about a submitted case. You should always obey GM instructions, and be as cooperative as possible until the issue can be resolved. We do our best to maintain a positive and enjoyable atmosphere in the game, and we hope our players share the same attitude.
We ask that you do not harass or constantly pester the GMs you see in-game or have contact with while handling submitted cases. Excessive use of foul language, begging the GM for items or in-game rewards, abusive messages or petitions, or repeatedly submitting petitions for old/closed cases will not speed the resolution of your issue, and could result in the account being penalized.
