The Game master team can change without prior notice the ban procedures as desired or suitable for punishment.

Castle Siege:

due to recent complaints on players who abuse the stern skill by killing their own members to get the skill, and now abusing the new client feature, which allows you to open multiple clients on one pc, and use it to kill thier own characters in a different client, we have decided to forbid that type of gameplay at the Castle Siege Event.
all involved players caught abusing this gameplay > (killing their own members/characters in other game client they opend) < by the watching staff team will be dissconected, and warned.
if the player contenuies to abuse that gameplay he, and everyone involved will face ban time between 5 to 7 days by account, that will be issued by the gm team.

Also players who will be caught online in two different guilds, at the same time, will face ban time between 5 to 7 days by account, that will be issued by the gm team.

Thank you.
