Point System

At NetherGames, our enforcement system is points-based. Once you reach a certain amount of points you will be banned or muted for a set amount of time as follows:

2 points = 1 day
4 points = 1 week
6 points = 2 weeks
8 points = 1 month
10 points = 2 months
12 points = 4 months
14 points = 8 months
16 points = Indefinite

These thresholds are per-category, meaning if you have 1 warning for using speed hacks and 1 for teaming in solo mode, you will not be issued a 2 week ban, only 2 separate 1 week and 1 day bans.

Warnings for offences

Point Reduction

The amount of points you receive is not permanent. You have a chance to return your account to good standing by not receiving any warning for one month, which will reduce your account’s points by one.

Note that while you are able to reduce the amount of points issued to your account, every warning issued will be added to your account’s record permanently and cannot be removed. However, your warnings record will not affect punishments issued - only the amount of points are used to determine the type and duration of punishments. Your record will only be used for administrative purposes - for example, while applying for a staff position.

Punishments

All punishments issued to an account apply to that account and any other accounts associated with it. For instance, if you have siblings and they also play NetherGames with you, if you are banned or muted, they will also be banned or muted too. Another example is in the instance of account sharing - if you have previously given your login details to another player and they have used your account to join NetherGames before, if they are banned or muted, that punishment will apply retrospectively to your account even though you did not commit the offence.
