War2.ru is far from strict! Our primary goal is to create a friendly environment for people to get together and play Warcraft II. To that end, there are a few rules and policies that we enforce to ensure a fair and enjoyable gaming experience for everyone.
We’ve retired the exhaustive rule manifesto created in July of last year, as in actual practice it proved to be convoluted and difficult to enforce. The rules are now condensed down to three main points, with mods having the flexibility to assess and deal with infractions on a case by case basis.
Common sense stuff
Stealing, spamming, flooding, hacking, and spoofing aren’t allowed. Offenses can result in temporary or indefinite bans. Accounts impersonating another player or a clan can be locked if the rightful owner(s) request it.
When asked to take a screenshot during a match, do so & post it on ss.war2.ru at the conclusion of the match. When asking for a screenshot, type /ping and take a screenshot of your request so that we can know you asked. (Details here.) Failure to post a screenshot can be taken as proof of hacking. Persistent delays in posting screenshots can be seen as proof of hacking. View complete screenshot policy.
For the most part, offensive behavior should be handled by users with the /squelch function. Intentionally bypassing a squelch or extreme behavior can lead to punishment for offensive behavior.
Attempt to be an inclusive community. Encourage or teach new players instead of grilling them and kicking them. Read more about server etiquette.
