Game Rules & Guidelines

A more detailed approach to rules for players to understand different categories of offences.

Discord
Our discord channel can be accessed via: https://discord.gg/VzTXdp8RVX

This is our central external hub for game information.

Rules Categories
We are breaking up our rules in to three sections:

1. Player Disturbances
2. Mechanical including Casino Protocol
3. Other

1. Player Disturbances - Rules
These are the general rules typically revolving around where and how you interact with one another, players will be punished for:

- Spamming
- Advertising
- Posting Gore/NSFW content
- Posting personal information on players, families and/or location
- Extremely derogatory or repeated and/or excessive use of racism, anti-Semitism, and homophobia in an invasive and/or targeted way
- Refusal to listen to staff direction on issues
- Repeated misuse of using incorrect forums and/or topics for things.

1. Player Disturbances - Punishments
These punishments start of small to try diffuse situations but will escalate where players are being excessive:

- Discretionary Warning - At least one, but discretionary, warning for breaking rules with content/comments being deleted.
- Mutes - Spanning from 24 hours all the way up to permanent.
- Bans - in extremely serious situations

Staff reserve the right to deviate where they think it is required


2. Mechanical - Rules
These are typically rules that could be broken by interacting or abusing features around the game, players will be punished for:

- Duping
- Account Sharing
- Economic Abuse (incl Casinos)
- Other Mechanic Abuse
- Bug Abuse/Exploiting

2. Mechanical - Punishments

These punishments start of small to try resolve an issue but will escalate where players are excessive:

- Discretionary Warning - A discretionary warning alerting the player of the breach and giving them limited time to resolve. (see Casino Protocol for casino related warnings)
- Modkills - This includes removal of wealth. Used where players are not acting on warnings and/or severe abuses
- Modkills with bans - This includes removal of wealth, but bans will be applied to players varying 7, 14 and, 31 days.
- Bans - Permanent bans will be applied in extreme circumstances

Staff reserve the right to deviate where they think it is required. You are not entitled to any specific punishment under these guidelines and these may vary depending on the offence.

Casino/Property Protocol - Rules
These are the general rules and accepted 'practices' surrounding properties:

- You are allowed to hold 1 Casino AND 1 Property. New Prop Rules: (this includes game wide properties). For example you may own a blackjack and the estate agent but you cannot own a scrapyard and an estate agent.
- Exceptions will be made in instances of crew wars/shooting and subsequent residual impact of these.
- When your property has been won/returned, you have 12 hours to increase your max bet back to the minimum before it will be dropped automatically.
- If you cannot afford your casino or are holding it on the minimum max constantly you can sell it on the Quicktrade page.
- Buybacks can be accepted on the 'My Properties' page.
- Refusing buyback(s) is part of the game and not a staff enforced rule, refusing these may open you up to attack from other players.

Casino/Property Protocol - Punishments
This is a general guidance on what to expect BUT players who consistently break these and/or report others for these offences will be treated as understanding the rules and may start higher up the punishment stage than a new player with a casino issue:

- Warnings - At least one warning given within a 12 hour period of a casino issue; where explanation is not sufficient to create an exemption the issue should be remedied within 12 hours of this warning and/or earliest activity chance. If you have previously been warned, prop(s) will be taken immediately by higher staff.
- Property Removal - Not replying in time or actioning the warning in an appropriate time will mean staff remove all of your properties until you engage with them over the issue; only if a player engages with staff can they get this back.
- Property Dropped - Not remedying the situation will result in the property being released back to the game within 24hrs.


3. Other - Rules
These rules potentially relate to where we owe obligations to you as a player and/or statutory requirements:

- Breaches of our Terms of Service
- Selling Wealth/Accounts or any other virtual product of IG
- Other statutory breaching incidents
- Reserved right to remove
-Share properties at your own risk, if the person holding/co-owning the property is modkilled and the property is ceased then it's tough luck.

3. Other - Punishments
These punishments are severe due to the impact they may have on us to run the game:

- We will do everything in our power to prevent/investigate/remedy any and all incidents that may require resolution through their appropriate official channels.
- Modkill with bans - Includes wealth removal and a 31 day ban.
- Bans - Extreme cases a permanent ban will be applied.

Staff reserve the right to deviate where they think it is required. You are not entitled to any specific punishment under these guidelines and these may vary depending on the offence.


Overall Punishment Notice Points:
- Staff can and may deviate from these punishment if the severity requires it.
- Staff will follow internal guidance for punishments and these deviations and will discuss them with other high staff to ensure objectivity and fairness.
- We take no responsibility for any financial losses incurred from individuals who break these rules in accordance with our terms of service.

Gambling
When you use casinos on the game you do so using virtual currencies which have a transferable value of £nil.

- You are individually liable for the amounts won and lost.
- You are individually liable for the amount of time you spend using these features.
- Staff will not reimburse any amount that is won/lost by virtue of the regular mechanics of casinos.

Reporting & Help Changes
Bugs/issues that require Interpol Staff attention now MUST use the following process:

- Report the question/issue to the Helpdesk or Discord
- HDO(s) will answer or forward on to Interpol Staff to provide feedback on.
- HDO(s) will report back to you if they can handle it, or an Interpol Staff member will reach out to you directly.
People ignoring these processes run the risk of and should expect that they may not have their question/issue resolved.
