Mirage Official Server Rules



  • We provide official servers your enjoyment with no monthly-subscription fee. To maintain a positive community, help one another by treating each other with respect.


    The following behaviour is not permitted on our Official Servers and those abusing the privilege of our in-game systems may be banned from our servers as a result.

    We strongly recommend that you do not allow any other person to use your own Steam account directly.


    If you are seeking assistance from a Moderator while playing Mirage, please join our Mirage Discord server and request help in the #Mirage_Official-Moderator-Support channel.


    As Mirage is still in Beta, our in-server Message of the Day box is not yet operational. The following rules will be presented in a condensed format when the MotD is available

    Exploiting:

    Map exploiting or gameplay exploits that deliberately and knowingly are used by the player to gain an advantage or grief. E.g. hiding in unreachable spots, infiltrating enemy spawn via exploits, etc.

    • If you find an exploit, please keep it to yourself and report how to do it to Torn Banner so it can be fixed
    • Sharing/posting exploits publicly DOES NOT result in getting them fixed faster, but can ruin everyone’s gameplay experience until it can be fixed
    • Players that post or share exploits to non-admins may be banned at our discretion

    _

    Griefing:

    Someone who deliberately irritates and harasses other players for their own enjoyment. Applies to in-game Chat and VOIP.

    • Targeted insults, teamkilling or team damage, following players to another server, or stream-sniping are all forms of harassment.
    • A person who constantly insults others, is being unwelcoming to new players, is actively looking for trouble, deliberately trying to escalate ingame chat/VOIP and trying to get players riled up through inflamatory remarks.
    • Players are encouraged to use the Mute Player or Votekick option from the Scoreboard

    _

    Hacking:

    Help yourself and others by not hacking/cheating. You will receive no warnings and no temp bans. If caught hacking/cheating, you will be permanently banned.

    • Players are encouraged to use the Votekick option from the Scoreboard to remove an obvious hacker
      • Players who are good at the game are not the same as hackers

    _

    Intentional TeamKilling or TeamDamage:

    Killing or Damaging your teammates on purpose.

    • Players are encouraged to use the Votekick option from the Scoreboard to remove TeamKillers from the server

    _

    Spamming Chat or VOIP:

    Repeatedly spamming the text chat with meaningless text, banter, advertisements, or flooding with keybinds. Use of soundboards, music, or other audio/vocal noises that are not speech.

    • Players are encouraged to use the Mute Player or Votekick option from the Scoreboard to remove a spammer from the server

    _

    Abusing Votekick:

    • Consistently votekicking players after one TK or without a valid reason
    • Votekicking players for being good at the game or being a rookie is not a valid reason to votekick
    • Votekicking players because you want a server to yourself is not a valid reason to votekick

    _

    Racism and/or Discrimination:

    Calling people names in a derogatory fashion is not allowed. Using racism and/or discrimination to attack another person(s) will result in being banned.

    • Players are encouraged to use the Mute Player or Votekick option from the Scoreboard
    • Players can disable Text or Voice Chat in the Options menu

    _

    Ban Circumvention

    Circumventing bans by any means will result in your accounts being permanently banned with no chance for appeal.


    The following are undesirable behaviours that negatively impact other player’s experiences. Players encountering the following are encouraged to use the Mute Player or Votekick option from the Scoreboard. Players who are frequently disruptive to other’s gameplay experience may be temporarily or permanently banned at the discretion of an Official moderator.

    General Toxicity:

    A person who constantly insults others, is being unwelcoming to new players, is actively looking for trouble, deliberately trying to escalate ingame chat and trying to get players riled up through inflamatory remarks.

    High Ping/Lagging:

    When you have an abnormally high ping and are lagging around the servers, it affects gameplay and other users. While lag spikes are real events, if you are having an issue with lagging, stop playing for a moment and see if your ping will go back to normal. While there are no max ping rules on official servers, admins do have the right to come in and take action if your high ping is consistent and affecting other’s gameplay experience for extended periods.

    • Players can adjust their Matchmaking or Server Browser preferences to avoid joining servers with unfavourably high ping

    It is at the discretion of the server admin in game whether or not he/she will take action against you (or other players) and the duration of the ban. An admin may kick or issue temporary bans for any variation of the above rules or at their discretion if you are affecting other players and their gameplay experience.

    Contact Info: If you feel you have been wrongfully banned or feel an admin has abused their powers, please get proof (screenshots or video) and send an email with full details to contact@tornbanner.com
