Game Play

Game play is what Dragon Lords is all about, and the Company strictly enforces the rules that govern game play. The Company considers most conduct to be part of the Game. Nonetheless, certain acts go beyond what is "fair" and are considered serious violations of these Terms of Use. Those acts include, but are not necessarily limited to, the following:

A. Using or exploiting or intentionally concealing errors in design, features which have not been documented, and/or "program bugs" to gain access that is otherwise not available, or to obtain a competitive advantage over other players. If you find a bug in the game you are supposed to report it to us as soon as is possible.

B. Anything that the Company considers contrary to the "essence" of the Game.

Disciplinary Measures

In the event that a player violates any of the rules, the Company may, in their sole discretion, take disciplinary measures which include a warning, mute, and ban. Once a player is banned, his/her device will be blocked from registering forever, that is, with the device this player can not register nor play Dragon Lords any more. The Company reserves the right to terminate and delete the account of such player with or without notice.

These rules are not meant to be all-inclusive, and the Company reserves the right to determine which conduct it considers to be inappropriate and to take such disciplinary measures as it sees fit up to and including termination and deletion of the Account. The Company reserves the right to modify this Code of Conduct at any time.

Changes to the Terms of Use Agreement or the Game

The Company reserves the right, at its sole and absolute discretion, to change, modify, add to, supplement or delete any of the terms and conditions of this Agreement at any time.
