  • Terms of Use Agreement

    This agreement sets forth the terms and conditions under which you are bound by when registering or connecting to OgreFest service.

    I. Code of Conduct

    The guidelines and rules listed below explain what behavior is expected of you and what behavior you can expect from other users both in-game and on the forum.
    Note that the following guidelines are not exhaustive, and may not address manner of offensive behavior.

    While using any OgreFest service, you will encounter a large number of users who share different experiences and come from different backgrounds. While certain language and images may not be offensive to you, consider the fact that the same language and images may have a completely different effect on someone else.

    All users on OgreFest must agree to these rules. Violations will lead to the corresponding suspension on the players in-game or forum account.

    A. Naming policy
    When choosing a character name, creating a guild, or otherwise creating a label that can be seen by other users using the Game or the service, you must abide by the guidelines set forth here, as well as rules of common decency.

    If OgreFest staff finds such a label to be offensive or inappropriate, it may, in it's sole and absolute discretion, change the name, remove the label and corresponding chat room, and/or suspend or terminate your use of service. Guilds which violate the policy will be deleted with or without a warning.

    You may not create a name or label related, referring, incorporates or utilizes any of the following: Religion, Politics, Organizations; Nationality, Racism, Ethics; Harassment or Defamation, Obscenity, Vulgarity, Insults; Sexually explicit, Violence; Hateful, Drugs, Unlawful; Staff member or any staff oriented name; Incomprehensible.
    B. Interacting with players and staff
    Communicating in-game with other users and staff members, whether by text or any other method, it is a fundamental element of the Game. The following rules are not intended to be exhaustive. OgreFest staff may use their discretion to decide what may break these rules.

    When communicating with other users and staff you may not: Communicate any unlawful, obscene, racist or any such language, and/or imagery deemed inappropriate by OgreFest staff; Disrupt any feature of the Game, and/or any component thereof in a manner that is deemed negatively on other users including but not limited to, sending junk messages, repeated unsolicited messages, sending advertisement, and/or services for goods or services originating outside the Game; Participate in any action that, in the sole and absolute discretion of OgreFest staff, results or may result in a player being "scammed" or defrauded out of currency or any other items the user has earned; Advertise or operate services in-game and/or on the forum which in the sole discretion of OgreFest staff is considered a casino and/or gambling; Impersonate any user, including without limitation any "game master" or any other OgreFest staff member; Communicate, post and/or direct users to information regarding a user's or staff members identity and/or personal information; Lie to, or attempt to deceive OgreFest staff; Use of different language than allowed in public chat rooms (Brazil server: Portuguese, Espanol; EU/NA server: English, Russian).
    C. Gameplay
    a). Player versus Player
    The OgreFest staff recognizes all play styles to be valid and a part of the game and not harassment. Killing players of your opposing faction, including camping players at spawn locations is considered as a part of the Game.

    You should always remember to protect yourself in areas where the players can attack you.
    b) Streaming

    Streaming on any service is allowed, however, we encourage you to research TOU of the streaming service you intend to use in order to protect your streaming account.
    c) Certain behavior goes beyond what is considered fair and are considered a violation of this agreement. This behavior includes, but is not limited to, the following: Using, or exploiting errors in design, features, and/or bugs to gain access that is otherwise not available, to facilitate and/or grant you an advantage over other players; Intentionally not participating in Red-Battlefield, Arsha's Spear, and/or other matchmaking arenas.
    D. Forum

    OgreFest can't allow all kinds of discussion on the forum. The forum is here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss ideas, give game-play advice, role-play and converse about any other aspect with other players.

    Forums work best when participants treat their fellow users with respect, courtesy and common decency. Therefore, please be civilized when participating. OgreFest staff need to be able to read everything you post to ensure it abides by this agreement.

    Posts not in their specific language sections (Global is used English and Brazil is used ether Portuguese or Espanol languages) are subject to deleted.

    OgreFest staff reserves the right to delete, move or edit any post with or without warning nor explanation to the user. In the extreme cases, OgreFest staff may limit or block the form access from a user.




    II. Account information

    OgreFest staff will never ask for your account details or share any confidential information. For safety of your account,, never share any of your account information, such as email addresses, account names, and/or passwords.

    A. Account security

    The account owner is responsible for the security of the account and that it's sufficiently protected. Note that OgreFest staff does not recover hacked accounts. You should: Never share your account information; Have unique and complex password; [*=2]Connect yourself from a secure computer and network; Never download unsafe files that might contain viruses/malwares; Never use the same credentials (username and password) on another service.
    B. Account sharing/trading

    You may not purchase, sell, gift, share, lend or trade any account or offer to purchase, sell, gift, share, lend of trade any account.
    Any such attempt will result in immediate account closure.




    III. Staff assistance

    We do understand that a player who's contacting the OgreFest staff might be upset over an issue they experienced within the Game, however, the use of vulgar, abusive or disrespectful language towards staff members is unnecessary, inappropriate and unproductive.

    Players who engage in this behavior will be told to stop, if they continue, a suspension may be placed on the account. A staff member will never ask you anything that would compromise an account or it's personal information.

    OgreFest staff ill make sure every attempt to show you the respect you deserve. We ask that you show us the same respect. We take no joy in placing suspensions on an account, but must do so in accordance to this agreement.

    A. Forum assistance

    Please direct all help requests, related questions to the support section on the forum.

    B. Staff member interaction

    Time spent processing issues that has already been answered keeps the OgreFest staff from addressing other user's pressing issues. If a single player repeatedly creates abusive or multiple questions and/or reports regarding the same closed issue, or otherwise misuse the respective system, they will be asked to stop, and if ignored, they will receive a suspension on their account.

    Any attempt to bribe an OgreFest staff member will result in an immediate suspension being placed on the account.

    OgreFest reserves the right, at its sole and absolute discretion, to change, modify, add to, supplement or delete, at any time, any of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Effective with or without prior notice to you.
