How to create server account ?

In order to play on you will have to posses server account. Due to fact that in-game account registration was closed, creating new account isn't as simple as it seems so.

This short F.A.Q will guide you through the registration process.

Account creation has 3 steps :

1) Registration
2) Confirmation
3) Activation

Firstly, you need to go to this site and register new server account. Carefully fill all fields, especially e-mail address - if you type it wrong you won't be able to finish registration process, so check it twice before you press 'Create account' button. After you click it, you will see following message :

It informs you that confirmation e-mail will be sent to your e-mail box within 24 hours. When you receive it, click the link inside. Then, the only thing left is to activate your account.

What is 'activation' ? It's one minute long process letting us know that you still use your account. Whenever you see following message while trying to log on,

you need to activate your account.

How to do it ? Firstly, you need to go to this site.

Press it and you will be taken into second step of activation. You need to write your server account name/password there and press 'Activate account'. When you do it, you'll see following message,

informing you that your account is valid for the next month.

That's all ! You can freely log on our server and enjoy your favourite game :)

Notes :

1) Account activation is totally FREE. You don't need to pay anything for it !
2) You have to activate your account once a month.
3) If you don't activate your account once a month, it will be 'frozen'.
4) 'Frozen' accounts cannot be used.
5) 'Frozen' accounts will stay in server's database for 6 months. After, they will be erased.
6) To unfreeze your account, you just need to go to activation site again ( Here is the link ) and simply activate it as written above.

How to deal with cheaters ?

At we value fairness what means that cheating is NOT allowed here. By 'cheating' we mean all kind of 3rd party programs that allow particular user to use advantage of normally unaccesable things (for example seeing whole map while playing -MapHack ) as well as all kind of behaviours/certain acts that may have similar result as described above ( lvl-upping, bad manners ). In general, we disallow everything what destroys gameplay in any way. However....there are some expections. If you don't know them all, this F.A.Q is for you :)

To let You understand better, we will divide cheats into 2 categories :
1) Play Game cheats ( Abbreviation : PG. Cheats used in standard wc3 games - Ladder and Tournaments )
2) Custom Game cheats ( Abbreviation : CG. Cheats used in all kind of Custom maps, i.e. DotA, Tower Defence )

Below You have full list of programs/actions NOT allowed in respective category ( PG or CG ). Use of any programs mentioned below will result in account/IP lock punishment. Same will be done with any other action that is counted as forbidden. ( Nick Abuse, Lag abuse, Bad Manners, etc ).

1) PG :

- MapHack - It's a program which enables you to see the fully revealed map.
- Custom Kick - A program which kicks player out of a game. ( The kicked player will suffer a loss. )
- Level-upping - A way of boosting account with wins, done by other user on purpose. ( Arranged games in which one user will constantly receive wins. ) Though, not a "hack".
- Nickname Abuse - An advantage of player who creates "strange" nickname with weird signs like " IlIlIlIlIlI " , " _-_R4z0r-_-_ ". Difficulty of trying to check the ping of that player gives him huge advantage in "Lag abuse", "Disc Hack" and other cases. User will be also banned for account that may insult religion, countries or other people.
- FFA Teamplay - An "alliance" of 2 or 3 players against another player, in a "Free For All" ladder game. "Allied" players attack another player in a "Free For All" game, but avoid attacking themselves, though they are enemies.
- Team Killing - Team killer is a player who acts against his ally, in a "Random Teams" ladder game, attacking him or destroying his game, on purpose.
- DiscHack - It's a way of leaving a game, harmless to guy who's doing it, by " closing " the internet connection. It can be done by special program, called DiscHack, or manually, by upluging internet cable.
- Loading Abuse - A way of avoiding a game, which is about to start. ( An user who doesn't " load " the game. ). It can be done by special program or manually, by closing the game/upluging the cable/turning pc off during the game loading.
- Lag Abuse - It's abuse of " host " advantage. ( An user, who hosts the game, with ping greater than 300. ) Host with ping higher than 300 provides a lot of lag to enemy and has great advantage to win the game because of it.
- Bad manners - It's not a 'hack', however it's a behaviour that is not allowed. Any kind of strong insults, especially addressed to Nation/Country/Religion will have severe consequences.

2) CG :

- NameSpoofer - A program which allows you to change your nickname or put it coloured.
- Bad manners - It's not a 'hack', however it's a behaviour that is not allowed. Any kind of strong insults, especially addressed to Nation/Country/Religion will have severe consequences.

As you can see, much more 'cheats' are restricted in PG than CG. It is connected with fact that public CGs are not scored or ranked in any way and people who play them do not receive wins/loses and icons in profile. Thus cheating there do not have as big consequences as in PG system. That's why we allow to use CustomKick and MapHack software in custom games( DotA, Tower Defence, BattleShips and so on ), but disallow it in Ladder and Tournaments Games.

Ok, now when You know which programs/acts are allowed and which are not, we can go to part about reporting cheaters. What if You noticed someone breaking any rule? ( using some 'hack', abusing something, having bad attitude, etc ) In such situation you should go to Hacks Section and report it at respective forum. ( MapHack use at 'Maphack!' forum, Lag Abuse at 'Lag Abusers' forum, NameSpoofer at 'Other Hacks' forum, and so on )

All the informations needed for reporting cheaters are inside Hacks Rule Book. Read it thoroughly before posting.

ATTENTION ! server/forums are virtual communities. As a matter of that fact we respect and obey all the laws and duties reputed as common standards. If You have any doubts of what is allowed and what is not, always ask some Moderator or Administrator before taking an action.
