Badlion strives to provide an enjoyable and safe environment for PVPers to practice and hang out. The below is a list of actions and behaviours that are not allowed on Badlion Network and other official communications (such as Twitter).
Punishments range from short mutes to permanent bans. The punishment will reflect the severity of the rule breaking behaviour.
Any attempt at getting around rules with loopholes or what not will result in a ban.
We retain the right to ban/remove any player from our network for any reason at any time for any reasons we deem fit. Please note that being punished for any rule breaking forfeits your right to a refund.Gameplay Rules
