    There is very fine line of between botting and playing, in general if players are concerned about becoming victim of botting policy violation, they should not perform or bot-first then ask-questions, but rather, verify first. Frequently, if you are not sure such action deem botting, it is most likely botting. With exceptions to auto-cast and auto-attack, both which, are integral and sponsored by game. They are not botting as they have timer limitations and cannot be carelessly left. It is not against the rules to be non-responsive when you are logged in your character, and being non-responsive during auto-cast/attack is not illegal, as they would expire itself but if you are resuming auto-attack/casting even after expiration occur and deem non-responsive in between two periods, then otherwise you would be botting. Your character may perform actions such as wood-chopping indefinitely without being mandated to be responsive, however be mindful if your character is moving, changing target, or entering/exiting game whilst being non-responsive means you are botting.

    In case of botting, if the system fails to challenge and/or remove botter, GM(GameMaster) may step in and intervene, including but not limited to diagnose and perform challenge to verify legitimacy.

  • Social Engineering

    Social Engineering alone can be eventful to many aspects as they influence certain people, Players must be extremely cautious when it comes to interacting with other players (socializing) and understand some people may engineer their socializing to bend into your trust. Social engineering are constructed dialog and behavior between players or groups.
    Impersonating Naturally players feel safe and comfortable when they are nearby or chatting to a staff, however some players will pretend or trick players into thinking they are staff when they are only a player. There are many ways to identify which members are staff or players, There is no one perfect way, but frequently when impersonator engages a player, they will first use methods or techniques to confuse players including faking or cleverly tailored names or badges to make players think they are speaking/dealing with a official staff. Those impersonator are sometime sloppy or opposite, very professional, it can be quite convincing however there are ways to verify legitimacy, In games all staffs have golden symbol reciting "GM" above their characters, and in website and forum all staffs have badge of "Staff" below the avatar/username. impersonator rely on element of surprise and false promises to successful extract the necessary information from players.
    Scamming Players may be asked to engage in risky transactions such as multiple trades or services which cannot be fail-safe, Those activity are not illegal but albeit carry great risk due to high profits for scammers. Players should avoid and never engage into risky exchanges, and stick to norm methods including stalls, trading, and/or system-sponsored activities. Players should never share or lend their items, fairies, or any items with valuations, if you decide to trade or share it will be treated as forever lost. Players should remember, even with some of oldest friends or real life friends can still change, as humans perspectives evolve over times, what deem never possible or wrong can become possible and no longer wrong for people. Never share, lend, trust, anybody but yourself.
    Bad Intentions Role of social engineering can be reincorporate beyond than just mere simple actions but in greater scheme such as arranging battles, feeding misinformation to create distraction from real event. Some people take pride and enjoy into engineering players from their very own friends, to encourage and orchestration actions for engineer's benefit. All players should be mindful of other players and above of all take everything in moderation.
  • Personal Trading

    Personal trading is event of where one or more people engage activity that would mean giving up on account security, Those activity are strictly prohibited. Under no reason, including staffs, should ever ask or request your password just as you are legally responsible of maintain your account security. If you share your account and caught, you are equally guilty for any inconveniences or trouble within. Players must understand that if you enter other players account, and if they get banned you will be too banned as some disciplinary require more than single account dealing and system will automatically link those activity based on sharing accounts. For your own protection you should never enter anybody else account just as you should never allow anybody enter your account as if they get banned you will be too banned because that person has entered your account and a single entity is created.
    Account Sharing Account sharing when you either unauthorized or authorized someone else than yourself to enter and consume your account's privileges and details. Account sharing is not limited to sharing usernames/passwords but as well email, or any other personal details. Players should also note that, if you allow someone else to play on your account even though they do not know your username/password as you might have logged into account before switching chair with other person, is equally same as account sharing. All the actions and executions at all of time must be yourself.
    Account Trading Account trading is very dangerous activity as it involves many people and valuable components, Players place their-self and their assets in great risk in delight of hoping commence some trades. Truthfully most of those trades are dealt with scammers, even if you succeed at first, your account will be always forever never the same as the new or previous account holder can steal it back. Further more, if you sell one account and consider yourself to be no longer of account holder, yet when account gets involved with disciplinary your other accounts are still as liability bound.
    Character Trading Character trading is coherently to account trading as they are bound to one account forever, same rules applies from account trading. You may not share, borrow, lend, pilot, tour, or any form of trading with anybody else. Your character is not to be engaged into any trading activity for any reason whatsoever. There is no exceptions or special permits to character trading.
    Items Trading Items trading are also prohibited, they too carry great risks to both side of party, as usually involved with real world currency, requiring some off-site activity before proceeding to trade. If you are required to trade items for something else that you cannot place or trade within the trade dialog, it is most likely a risk and players should not perform trades.
    Service Trading Service trading constitutes same risks when you engage offline trading to later perform promised services in-game. Players should know most scammers rely on off-line actions to scam because they are invisible and can always easily disappear in offline trading. All service trading for real world currency is always prohibited. Players should not try to engage, as attempt to engage into service trading constitutes policy breaking.
    Selling Rum Barrels & Rum For security reasons, We prohibit players to sell Rum or Rum Barrels directly. Due to high fraudulence and scamming associated with selling/buying rum, Players are expected to purchase item mall for own personal use. You may purchase the items and sell them in-game for gold or other services, however when you purchase any items, it must be first intentions of personal-consume. Most common scam situation involves when player tries to sell rum points, a player will be asked to what purchase in item mall, the player will ask you to purchase non-common item such as unfavorable apparel set, once you've obliged the request and bought the package with your rum, expecting to commence the trade with buyer, only to find out the buyer is refusing to buy. What exact reasoning varies, but most of time players can be sinister and waste your rum. For this reason, we disallow players to advertise or broadcast/post message or message that appears to contain intentions to sell rum, as the seller would be met with miserable experience and expect refund or disciplinary by staffs of Pirate King Online. We do not get involved with players trades, and we do not by means capacity yet to enforce fair-play to this degree.
  • Accident Losses

    Accident losses focus on events that are not bad-intentions but leave undesirable playing experience. As much it pains and hurts us to see players lose something precious or made jarring mistake, it is still ultimately up to players be vigilant. Our staffs cannot refund, reverse, reimburse, credit, or similar replacement for following events.
    Stalls Either when you are selling or buying with player stalls, you must be cautious with the prices established on the said items. It is very common known that some players may accidentally miss a digit making the item much undervalued or overvalued. Some players may even place a stall that's full of same item but with one of them has leading extra zero, making it seem almost as if you are buying all of the items at same price. Same situation can be said for sellers who rush setting up their stall with same items and mis-typed not enough zeros making it effectively very cheap. It is player and player's whole responsibility to carefully inspect every item prior to sell/buy. Staffs will not reverse actions, or even "shut down" your stall if glaring mistake is spotted.
    Sold Items (NPC) Many players are typically expected to sell their looting to NPC however because due to negligence often users will rush drag-and-drop almost all items in inventory, including sometime valuable items like a fairy. Users are encouraged to not spam sell, and instead you can carefully organize your inventory so the said required item to sell is not near to valuable items at all. Bank your precious items and you can be more confidence that you will not drag-and-drop a valuable item to NPC. Please note that most of valuable item have "confirmation" dialog required, if you recklessly spam enter key, you will most likely experience losses. It is player and player's whole responsibility to carefully determine correct item being sold. Staffs will not reverse such selling, or return the items by spawning replacement.
