Social behavior

To have a fair match, two players should behave in such a way that they like someone else to behave to them.

Do not forget the following rules during the play:

  • Never leave the match because you want the time of the match to finish. This behavior is vicious and causes the competitor’s useless waiting. Your account will be blocked if we receive multiple reports on such behavior. So make sure the game is over if you are going to leave the game.

If you see a user cheating or misbehaving, take a screenshot and sent it to the support section. Keep in mind that if a user simply leaves the game and the game time is over, it will not be considered a deliberate behavior. It can have different reasons such as not having access to the site, the user’s device failure, etc….

If any fraud is detected by the administrators, the site has the right to block your account.
