Basic Rules



An overview


Feenix Server Project is a social coding and community project. We stand for a no-nonsense attitude, fair play, healthy competition and tolerance. With a large population as we have and are, it is evident that a clear set of rules to live by is needed to maintain an enjoyable and fair environment for everyone.

Feenix Server Team takes great effort in working and cooperating with all members. However, be aware that we do moderate our community. the graver the behavior, the less lenient we are. Raging at, rioting against, or any other kind of verbal abuse towards our team or community members, is never tolerated.

Please be aware, our rules may differ from retail rules in some cases. At most this is due to being a free to play private project, and our different state of management and offering of services


Common Sense


All rules created, are based on years of social and community interaction and management experience. Above all, they are based on common sense and we will always ask our members to use it!


Game Rules and Fair gameplay


Feenix team takes great effort in maintaining a pleasant, fair and authentic world environment for every member.

Therefore we actively monitor and take action against harmful matters as: Scams, Casinos, Excessive harassment/camping, Hacking, Cheating and Ninja looting

Every member who enters our project, is bound by our rules and terms of service, whether they have read and agree on these, or not. Please be aware, our rules may differ from retail rules in some cases. At most this is due to being a free to play private project, and our different state of management and offering of services

     Hacking

      Hacking is taken as the use of any third party program that directly interacts with gameplay.
      In most cases these are used to gaina certain behavior or feature that would not be accessible
      without. Being found using any kind of hack on our realms wil always result in an immediate and
      permanent suspension from our services.

     Exploiting

      An exploit, in video games, is the use of a bug or design flaw by a player to their advantage in
      a manner not intended by the game's designers. The existence of a bug never grants permission for
      players to exploit it, neither will the presence of a bug ever justify its (ab)use.

Support



Gamemasters


Feenix Game Masters, or GMs, are our beloved volunteers. GMs are the overseers of the game world and watch over a server to solve problems, disputes, and sometimes punish people disobeying the Terms of Use Feenix has.

Game Masters are never to be be used for help with quests, asking for gold, gear or easy teleport. Neither should they be confused with Developers.


The Ticketing System


The ticket system as present, has been implemented for players to receive service and help. Feenix Team uses the ticketing system to assist members with in game issues on a voluntary base; Our Game Masters are in game around the clock to give members assistance when needed. VIP members (large supporters) are informed how to receive faster service as they financially carry the project for every other member who plays here free.

TLDR: Most common questions and answers



General Questions


Q: Many Servers shut down after a while! Will I waste my time on Feenix too?


A:  No. Feenix Server Project is active for years already. We have proven to be a stable and long term
      project: We have been, and will be around for a long, long time.

Q: I have a character on retail or another Server, can I transfer to Feenix?


A:  No. Feenix is a Blizzlike server. Importing characters from other (fun) servers/projects is not Blizzlike.

Q: Can I transfer my characters on Feenix, from one realm to the other?


A:  No. We do not transfer characters from one realm to the other, as we see our realms as independant
      projects and communities.

Q: Is Feenix exactly as retail?


A:  We aim for a pure Blizz-like experience for all members. With some minor customizations. On some
      realms we have a customizable experience rate. So also members who have less time to play the
      game, can enjoy all content. All end-game content is aimed to be exactly as on retail.

Q: Does Feenix have bugs?


A:  Yes, same as all other privately hosted projects, we have bugs and glitches
      However, we have access to a professional development team, working around the clock to ensure
      that issues are caught and fixed in a fast rate. Over one and a half year of straight development on
      performance and game features has brought us on our current no.1 position.

Q: Does Feenix have overpowered Donator Items?


A:  Feenix Server accepts donations.They are needed to keep our project alive and running
      The rewards members can get for donating are not overpowered and will never be higher than the
      game, realms progression. Neither are rewards cheap. Epic remains epic.
