I. League Conduct Rules


While playing TWEL, players must respect the League Operators and all
attending staff members.


If a League Operator is abusing their powers or taking excessive measures
against players, players may report this to the Head League Operator who
will then take further action if sufficient proof is obtained.


Any staff member who abuses their power during an official match will be
reported to the League Operators who will then let the Trench Wars Staff
Smods deal with the problem.


Deliberate attempts to disrupt game play may result in that player being
silenced or kicked from the arena by a League Operator. Furthermore, that
player will be reported to the League Operators who will take further action.

1.05 Harassment & Private Message Spamming

All harassment & private message spamming will be dealt with following the
Trench Wars Zone Rules.


If sufficient evidence is provided according to rule 1.05, any abuse of
the League Conduct Rules during a match will result in a:

I) A one week ban from TWEL. If the offender is a playoff contender, they
will automatically forfeit their next playoff match.

II) *warning if the player is not a participant in TWEL. If, after the
warning, the player continues to abuse the league rules, they will be
banned from the zone. (For a determined amount of time, due to the Trench
Wars Zone Rules)

Repeat game conduct offenders may be banned from Trench Wars Extreme
League for as long as the League Operators feel is sufficient.


If insufficient or no evidence is provided for requesting a player to be
silenced according to rule 1.05, the accused player will not serve a
Trench Wars ban and will not be silenced for the rest of their login.

into the playoffs, TWEL Operators hold the right to deny admittance to

evidence of their duels must be provided, and explained, to TWEL Operators.

between them will get the spot (e.g. Player A beats Player B and C in

game by upper staff. Suspicion of cheating will be followed up and the
