Server Rules & Legal Notices These are the Marvelous Gaming Server Rules which will be linked to In-Game by using the command '!rules' from chat. Please take the time to learn the Rules before you play. ? Introduction Note ? Remember When you get banned on one server you get automatically banned on all servers that means ALL MG Servers be they *L4D1 L4D2 or Z-Day. Not Just the Server You Was Banned On. So if you like playing at MG think twice before you break the rules. It's not worth it. NOTE: *This Includes any UnNamed MG Servers. Category 1: Major Offences Racism. This topic is so important that it is first on our list. Any racist comments and/or names will result in an instant permaban! Cheating. Cheating will result in an immediate permanent ban with no option to protest against it. Bug using. Exploiting known or unknown bugs within the game or its modifications will result in a kick and temporary ban without warning. Team Killing. Excessive, on purpose damaging other players on your team (including yourself) will result in a kick and temporary ban without warning.This Includes both as Servs. and SI. So pushing another SI of the building is also considered as TK as it often results in that players SI being killed. Mic / Chat / Vote Spamming.

Foreign Languages. We can debate long if we should allow typing or talking foreign languages, but there always seem to be a certain gray zone where some people find it annoying and others don't so English is NOT the only language allowed on our Servers, Forum and Steam-Group, but not everybody speaks English so it normal wont be a problem and you usually won't get kicked for it when you keep low profile but admins decide when it gets to a point where people could be bothered with it which will usually lead to a kick and a short term ban, ie. When People Talk NonStop Like they are on a Phone. Inappropriate Language. Swearing, shouting, being disrespectful to other Players/Admin etc. will get you some time to cool-down outside of our servers, Repeated Actions of this type will bring longer Bans. Inappropriate Nicknames. Nicknames like ;; .. || -- are not allowed. We like to know who we're playing with so try to be more original when it comes to picking a decent nick. As you may find your self either Named Scrambled, Silly Named (ie. Renamed to - 'Sugar Plum Fairy' or 'I get Owned by Noobz') or Short Ban! Rage Team-Switching. Excessive team-switching, which means you keep trying to switch teams even though the server is full and a switch is not possible. We've seen people even trying to reconnect to join the other team (usually the infected team). This will get you banned for a short period of time. Trolling. Trolling on MG/MGftw Servers is not allowed, the act of Disruption or Spoiling the Game for other people by the use of minor (in them selfs!) Inflamatory Comments or the Baiting of Admin may result in a Short Ban. The Ban may be Increased if there are multiply cases Religion & Politics. Talking about religion and politics is not allowed on MG Server or Forums as debates of this type have a tendency to get out of hand and Offense to other can easily be caused. A short Ban maybe given, Repeat breaking of this Rule will result in longer bans. Category 3: Special Section The Special Section can be considered an extension of Category: 1 Advertising.
