Game Rules

  • §1 Behaviour

    Please be kind to other players. Any insulting, rude, provoking, racist, drug-related and/or vulgar behaviour is forbidden and will be penalized.

    Also we do not tolorate players that blackmail other people and it'll result in a permanent ban.


    If you discover a breach of the rules, you have to instantly contact a Support or Game Master(Crew).

    The breach has to be proven by significant Screenshots that you are not allowed to edit.

    For more complicated cases, we also accept records in high resolution.


    Please keep in mind that everyone has a different opinion about what is insulting and what not.

    Therefore, only the OpenNos Team will determine what is - and what is not - seen as offensive on a case by case basis


    §1a Ingame Behaviour

    We do not encourage AFK-Leveling.

    Your attention has to be on the game, that means if a Team member contacts you, you have to react.

    Failing to do so results in a ban.


    Portals have to be accessible all the time. You risk a punishment when blocking them.


    §1b "Grief Play"

    "Grief Play" refers to play styles where a player intentionally disrupts the gaming experience of other Players.
    Examples for this behaviour are: Intentionally killing others by drawing Monsters to them, stealing kills, stealing monsters, following other players across channels in order to disturb their gameplay.We will penalize this behaviour strictly


    You cannot claim a map and reports that aim to do just that will be ignored by the crew.
