Here is a non exclusive list of actions that is unacceptable
  • Spam the text or voice chats (including 'ear rape')
  • Use offensive language
  • Advertise (keep your item trade messages to a reasonable level)
  • Speak any language that is not English on the voice chat

You will be permanently banned for cheating infractions.
Exploiting any flaw in the map, game or otherwise is forbidden.
  • You can protect yourself by ensuring your trades are done in one transaction within the Steam Trading system. Ensure the correct items are what you want in return to what you are sending away before the final confirmation. Out of Steam trades can be dangerous and are taken at your own risk.
  • If you believe you have been scammed, you may wish to file a report with SteamRep. For more information about SteamRep, click here.
Disruptive behavior
  • You may not deliberately engage in behavior that disrupt the gameplay or otherwise negative affect another player's experience. This can include teleport trapping/getting other players stuck, deliberately blocking other player's view, delaying, teaming with a player on the other team or needlessly prolonging a round.

  1. Resolve the matter informally with the admin via Steam, Forum PM or Discord
  2. Make a formal appeal on the forums
