Community Rules

All rules are listed here!Last edited: 05-12-2016 12:12 CEST


Without rules, any multiplayer game will be chaotic. In order to keep the gameplay smooth, nice and allow for fair game-play for everyone, we have setup the rules for McGamerZone.

It is advisable for all players to read these rules to prevent any confusion. Most of the rules can be deduced from common sense. Therefore it should be very easy to follow them.

These rules may be modified anytime, so it would be intelligent to check this page from time to time.

It is also possible to receive punishment for offences not listed on this page at the discretion of a staff member.
If you feel the action is inappropriate, you may appeal here

You will be punished even if you are caught with the intention of breaking any rule.


Punishment system

We use a system called BSS (Bad sport system) to punish players, which takes into account the player's history as well. Please refer to the FAQ for more information.


1: Global rules

The rules listed below are applicable to all of the network, including teamspeak and website, unless specified.

1.1: Chat offenses


1.1.1: Spamming/flooding chat (Including pms) is not allowed
Sending too many similar messages is very annoying. The punishment varies with the amount of spam messages sent.

1.1.2: CAPSLOCK
Using excessive amount of capslock is not allowed. However, players will not be punished unless it is used in an abusive way which will annoy others.

1.1.3: Hackusation and Accusing of breaking rules in public chat.
Hackusating means accusing another player of hacking. It is not allowed because it yields nothing and make things worse (They will disable their hacks). The right mode of action is recording them red handed and reporting through the ticket system(With video evidence) or calling a staff member (Using private messages if they are online). Contacting them on skype is not the right thing to do.
P.S accusing staff members of abuse also follows this path. If you have evidence, please use the website to report it.
If you found a player breaking rules, please report them instead of accusing them in public chat.

1.1.4: Discrimination/Hate speech is not allowed
Please respect all players regardless of race, religion, belief, gender or country.

1.1.5: Disrespecting/being rude/abusive is not allowed.
You have to be respectful to all players even if you disagree with them. They are humans too, and have feeling as well, after all.
You are not allowed to make derogatory remarks even in competitive games. You can, however, express your anger and frustrations while playing if it does not break any of the rules.

1.1.6: Using swear or inappropriate words (18+) and Harrasement is not allowed.
This includes, but is not limited to, sexual content, drugs, violence, self-harm, and dark humour.
These kinds of behavior has no place in our servers.

1.1.7: Discussing religons is not allowed.
McGamerZone is a minecraft server and in Minecraft, there are no religions. So please refrain from mentioning religions because it usually ends up offending people.

1.1.8: Whining is not allowed.
This means complaining constantly. If you have any complaints, feel free to make a ticket. Do not whine on chat.

1.1.9: Annoying/Trolling is not allowed.
Repeated attempts at trolling or annoying players is not allowed. If they ask you to stop, stop. Continuing will be punishable.

1.1.10: Impersonating staff is not allowed.
If you want to be staff, feel free to apply at the website. However, if you are not, please don't try to act as a staff member. You can of course enforce the rules, but saying things such as "I will ban you" is not allowed.

1.1.11: Asking for items/ranks from staff members is not allowed.
They will not abuse for you. You should play and earn items yourself. The sense of accomplishment when working hard yourself is invaluable, trust me.
If we think you deserve a rank, we will contact you.

1.1.12: Advertisement
Advertising non-minecraft related services in chat - in either messages or public chat - is not allowed. In this context, advertisement is defined as sending too many such messages in chat.

1.1.13: Threatening behavior is not allowed
Threatening to harm a player in real life, threatening to take down the server, and other such behavior not related to the game itself is not allowed. This doesn't mean, however, that you cannot
threaten to kill them in ChaosPvP or bridge because it is related to the game.

1.1.14: Ignoring staff members is not allowed
Staff members are there to help you. If you deliberately ignore them when it comes to moderation, they have the right to punish you.

1.1.15: Revealing personal information of players is not allowed
We do not require the identity cards of players, which means they have the right to remain anonymous. Therefore revealing personal information without their consent in any way is punishable.
However, revealing IP adress, home address and other information which could be used to pinpoint the human controlling the account is not allowed either for yourself or any other player.

1.2: Game-play offenses


1.2.1: Usage of modifications to Minecraft, of any form, (Mods, hacks, macros, textures) which directly affect game-play, are not allowed.
This gives you a clear advantage over other players, turning the game unfair for others.

All macro mods are forbidden.

If you have doubts if a mod you want to use is allowed you should create a support ticket.

1.2.2: Exploiting bugs and glitches is not allowed
Bugs are supposed to be fixed as soon as they are discovered because clearly, developers do not intend them to be there in the first place, hence termed bug.
Exploiting bugs usually gives you an advantage over other players who don't exploit it. Therefore it is not allowed under any circumstance.
