This is a list and explanation of what can/can’t get you banned, based on game history and the current Terms of Service.
Keep in mind that if you have recording software, you can record players and report them to Deca here.
What can definitely get me banned?
- Hacking: This is normally the blatant stuff (shooting through walls, anti-debuffs, noclipping, etc.); See HeroMax’s page on how to detect it.
- Harassment: Trolling, griefing, insulting other players, discrimination based on race or religion. Recently, Deca have taken notable action against offensive behavior.
- Sitting: Falls under hacking and harassment. This includes using hacks to sit on Ents, Avatars, etc.
- Multiboxing: This is essentially hacking, but on a larger scale.
- Exploiting: Abuse of game mechanics, usually to get fame. Large groups of people can get banned when the owners crack down on this. Deca has also explicitly stated that mass-claiming freebies from the front page can result in a ban. (the packages where you are only supposed to get one)
- Duping: Duplication of items is hard to prove, but if it is, you will be permabanned.
- Mod/Dev impersonation: Self-explanatory. Don’t do it.
- RWT: Real World Trading: exchanging items/accounts for real money.
What might get me banned?
- Dragging: Possible, if someone gets really salty over you killing them.
- Recording yourself doing contentious actions: Just don’t record yourself doing things Deca may not like.
- Scamming: There have been cases where people have been banned for scamming. So don’t scam.
- Muledump: Technically against ToS, but has never been punishable with a ban.
- Realmscripts: Same as above.
What most likely won’t get me banned?
- Crashing dungeons: Barging into dungeons you weren’t invited into.
- Leeching in dungeons: Staying in the spawn room/safe spot whilst letting others rush/kill boss.
- Screwing up bosses: This includes Crawling Depths and Forgotten King.
- Muling: Deca will not ban people for using extra accounts as storage, but if your mule is mistakenly caught in a net of mass bans it will not be unbanned.
