Warning

I got a ban and I don't use any kind of hacks!

If you share your account with someone who used CE or any kind of hacks, your account will get a ban because our system detects if it logged in from the same IP of the CE/Hack user.

Our system records IPs for users who also scam players by impersonating GMs. They claim they are GMs who can create and craft items to sell for money. They ask for account information to craft items even though GMs do NOT need this information.

The system will ban all accounts with the IP(s) without any notice.
