Rules and Regulations

Greetings, Adventures!

Welcome to the official rules and regulations thread for OgreFest. Below you will find the official rules (my, what a surprise!) for all of OgreFest’s servers, forum conduct, and Discord. Please do note that this is not an exhaustive list, and that all rules stated herein are subject to change at any time, with or without notice, by staff members who are part of OgreFest. We hope these rules encourage a positive atmosphere of fair-play and cooperation between players, as well as foster a feeling of community here. We are all hopelessly fond of Classless WoW, after all, and it is everyone’s responsibility to create an environment that players can thrive in.

OgreFest Rules and Code of Conduct

  1. Discriminatory, derogatory, and or disparaging remarks, comments, and/or hateful communication will not be tolerated.
    That said, this rule does not exist to supplement backbone. We treat all of our players as adults, and expect a degree of “The ability to shrug it off” from players in some cases.

  2. Excessive spamming in chat is prohibited. Filling the chat window with messages, typing in all capital characters consistently and constantly, and/or relaying the same information in a repeated fashion are all included in the definition of spamming. Please note that there is a degree of autonomy allowed to GM’s in regards to enforcing this rule. They will address individual issues according to their own benchmark of severity.

  3. Excessive negativity and/or “bashing”, harassing, or antagonizing is not allowed in World chat, and will result in a mute if it continues over a length of time. One instance of “get gud scrub” is tolerable. An avalanche of them is not.

  4. Impersonating Staff Members, or lying to a Staff Member, in any and all circumstances, will result in a permanent ban with no warning.

  5. Frequent abuse of the ticket system, whether to ask the staff for goods, services, or favors, or to insult them, is prohibited.

  6. Posting external links in chat that lead to content that is inappropriate, for example pornographic, grotesque, or content deliberately designed to arouse anger, is absolutely against the rules.

  7. Threatening players, staff members, or the server in any way is against our terms of service. Please follow this rule to its logical conclusion; a player who tosses a /threaten at you is not on the chopping block.

  8. Any exploitation of bugs, mechanics, or gameplay that gives a player(s) an unfair advantage is prohibited.

  9. The use of hacks, bots, scripts, or malicious third party programs to exploit gameplay (including Fly Hacks, for those of you who don’t see that as a big deal) will bring down the Perma-Ban Hammer so quick your head will spin.

  10. We don’t tolerate extortion on OgreFest.

  11. Attempting to sell, trade or give away a player account will result in that account being permanently banned, even if the transaction has already taken place. Do not conduct business with anyone who is looking to sell an account.

  12. Win-trading is strictly prohibited.

  13. Fraud, for instance, a Paypal Chargeback, will lead directly and unceremoniously to permanent account suspension.

  14. Advertising another private server while playing on OgreFest will not only hurt our feelings, but result in a ban on both your account and your IP.

  15. GM’s will not involve themselves with guild politics: players are responsible for using proper discretion when joining guilds, and any events that occur between members of a guild, except for those that specifically violate the above rules, will be left to players to resolve.

If you have received a ban and would like to appeal it, please do so in the Ban Appeal section. All ban appeals are reviewed by the entire staff before a verdict is made.

Please note that the team behind OgreFest reserves the right to change or amend these rules at any given time without any prior notice. It is advised you come back to review our rules every once in a while, to make sure you are aware, and are up to date!

Forum Rules - Disclaimers And Our General Warning

The following guidelines and rules do not cover our Terms of Service.

Violation of any policy listed below will result in an infraction, which may lead to a forum ban. Game bans and Forum bans might translate, depending on the severity of the situation. Using the OgreFest Forums is a privilege, not a right. Behave accordingly, and remember to take a step back before you post; Proofread and double check your message, as posting it might have consequences. We don’t expect saintly behaviour; we do expect you to act mature.


  • We operate under a Zero Tolerance policy on our forums. Penalties (such as bans) are issued based on user offense and severity. They may be extended if staff of higher rankings deem it necessary.


  • To report a player for breaking the forum rules, send a private message to any Forum Moderator. To report hackers, open a ticket in-game.

  • Do not open a new thread to whine about hackers, exploiters, bugs, staff, etc. The forum is a place for people to discuss game-related content and report bugs, not one for inarticulate rants.

  • Please report bugs exclusively in the appropriate subcategory in the Bug Reports section of the forum - Do not report them anywhere else.


  1. No discriminatory, derogatory, and/or disparaging behavior or comments. Just be considerate and polite.

  2. Do Not Avoid the Language Filters: This encompasses changing or removing letters, adding symbols or spaces, or anything that will cause the word to not be replaced by asterisks. Any attempt at copying the alert or circumventing the filter will not be tolerated.

  1. No Advertising or Solicitation: We do not allow other businesses to operate on OgreFest because we find their methods often break our terms; This is not the same as advertising for guilds or group projects that involve in-game gold which is permitted. Any unauthorized transactions between OgreFest and any other game or any trades between OgreFest goods and any currency, including but not limited to real money, items or services, are strictly forbidden.

  2. No Inappropriate Material: No links, images, videos (including profile pictures or signatures) that might display content which is generally considered to be NSFW (included, but not limited to excessive violence, gore or adult-oriented content). Gif avatars are also strictly forbidden. Infractions for this offense will result in a ban.

  3. No Threads for Staff Attention: If you need to talk to the staff, you are to use proper methods. Sending us a private message on Discord is strongly advised. For suggestions, complaints or bug reports, please make use of the proper sub-forums.

  4. Do Not Report Player Abuse on the Forums: Please report players by sending a message to a Game Master on Discord. Make sure to provide enough validating evidence!

  5. The developers and the QA team do not look for bugs on the forums.

  6. Do Not Disrespect the Staff or the Server: Doing so is against our policy. It will be tolerated under no circumstances. Posts or topics that directly go against any staff member or OgreFest, including questioning their professionalism or values, will entail an immediate account suspension. The staff do not claim to be infallible or perfect; we do take offense for being called negligent or other unjustified names.
    Impersonating staff members goes against our rules as well, and thus shall not be tolerated.

  7. No Spamming: Do not spam threads or messages more than once. Cross-posting, necro-posting, thwarting or derailing discussions and provocation also apply here.

  8. No Real-World Trade: Any attempts to sell any items, accounts, or information for real-world money will result in a swift and permanent ban.

  9. No Drama: The forums are not a place for you to whine, complain, insult, show off, or harass other players or the staff of OgreFest. Topics that do so will be deleted, and the authors will receive an infraction. If you have an articulate, well thought out and evidence-supported claim, that is one thing; If you just want to complain, it will not be tolerated here.

  10. No Posting in the Wrong Section: Forums are divided into specific subcategories for a more facile use. Please double check that you are posting in the right sub-forum.

  11. No Posting on Alternate Accounts While Being Banned: Players who are banned from the forums may not make posts on alternate accounts. This will result in an immediate and permanent account and IP ban.

Team’s Discretion

Moderators and Game Masters, both in-game and on the forums, are given a large degree of autonomy. They have the freedom to ban or delete things as they see fit if they feel the content in cause is deemed unsuitable for the forums and/or is not covered by previously stated rules.

OgreFest’s rules are subject to change at any time, with or without prior notice. It’s advisable to check up on them once in awhile.

We hope you enjoy your time on OgreFest, Adventures!
