Penalty Categories
After a violation of the Code of Conduct results in a penalty, in-game messaging advises the player as to the category of the penalty.

Disclaimer: While representative, this isn't an exhaustive list of offenses that can result in a penalty. To protect the integrity of our community and foster a fun and safe space in which to play, we reserve the right to penalize any account or take other disciplinary actions at any time for any conduct that we determine to violate the spirit of the Code of Conduct or otherwise find to be inappropriate or harmful to the community.

Commerce Issues

If your account received a Commerce Issue penalty, this means that activity on your account has triggered the automated penalty due to issues with payment-related matters.

This falls under one of the three following categories:

  • Fraud Detected

  • Chargeback or Refund Detected
