Re: Game rules

A few questions.

1. Rule 3.5 - Can we threaten to invade another players planet?  If not, isn't that part of in game politics?
2. Rule 3.6 - If people are talking about something in chat (for example, the price of cars) can we post links related to the coversation (for example, a dealership website)?
3. Rule 3.6 - If we play other games besides EMP, can we post referral links in our profile as long as we aren't actively recruiting for the other game?  If not, can we at least put our Armor Games Profile link into are in game profile (that is where I post my "EMP Battlelog" due to it being too long for the in game profile)?

Re: Game rules

1. Yes you can, but polite, without swearing.
2. Yes certainly.
3. No referral link allowed.

Re: Game rules

3. Ok, so no referral links.  But can those of us who play from Armor Games link our Armor Games account profile?  I have a "Battle Log" recording my battles in EMP-game.  But it is too long for my in game profile.  So, I posted it on my Armor Games profile.

Re: Game rules

Sure you can do that.

Re: Game rules

I've seen two of my alliance members reset, and I am wondering if they were reset by administrative action is there a way to see that?
It would be helpful to me if an explanation were given if this was due to a rules violation or personal choice to reset.
Thanks for your time.

Re: Game rules

There's no way to see that information  it is private. But you can ask them.
