This game is meant to be played in a competitive and/or a friendly way. However, any inappropriate behavior or abuse of the game system in a way that is deemed unfitting with the game concept may cause a person or persons to be banned. So far, some of the current bannable offenses in this game are:
- Using fake/alternate/multiple/real profiles or other players' accounts or allowing other players to use your account for any reason.
- Using programs/methods to hide your IP or to automate various ingame actions such as collecting bonuses, grab, lock, post and poke.
- Harassing or insulting other users in a derogatory manner (using public/private posts, pokes, offending text in about-me/status sections or by calling names in public). This is a game and should not be used to harass an individual or to attack them in any personal way or cause an individual personal distress.
- Treating game administrators or moderators with disrespect or insults. They are here to help you, but they also have rules that they are meant to follow. No person should be rude to the people who are helping keep the game running.
- Posting any code in a user's wall that changes the appearance of their about me or profile in any permanent way.
- Using profile pictures or names of other users in your aboutme or posts without their explicit permission or impersonating other users by any means.
- Altering functional core components of the game such as owner, cash, profile picture and timer boards.
- Using any of the display elements (name, profile picture, name, headline, tagline or aboutme) to request other users not to grab/lock you or not to change your tagline.
- Uninstalling and re-installing the game in a short period of time (which can not be disclosed) will give the user 1 penalty point. At 5 penalty points the user's account will be deactivated for 72 hours. Unneeded uninstalls are causing our infrastucture severe issues and are confusing the rest of the players.
- Being a registered sex-offender (since this game is available to minors as well).
- Spamming or abusing in general the application fan page.
- Using Arena's logo and trademarks in any form without prior written permission.
- Harming Arena's interests in any way shape or form.
All sales of virtual goods are final. No refunds will be given, except in our sole and absolute discretion even if your game account gets disabled for TOS violations or you decide to deactivate your game account or service termination.
Private chat is just private. That means no other player, moderator or unauthorized user can see what you two say to each other. But you should avoid sending sensitive personal information such as passwords or credit card numbers. Please also note that your private posts are subject to your home country's applicable laws and we take no responsibility for them. You can also use the application provided report feature to report inappropriate content in order to take appropriate action.
In case you want to leave/uninstall the game, you have to remove any links to other applications from your about-me. We do NOT offer free advertising space.
A player can be banned for violating the Terms of Service without warning or explanation and all purchases from the application are non-refundable.
The minimum age allowed to be able to join the game is 13. Any account that does not meet this requirement, will be removed without any prior notice.
