Community Guidelines


Common Rules

1. Scamming

   Scamming a player in any way shape or form is disallowed. If you infringe this rule you will get permanently banned.

   WARNING: We will NOT restore any kind of losses.


2. Harassment

   Any form of harassment such as insulting another player, threatening a player or annoying a player will get you a ban ranging from 7 to 30 days depending on the severity, and could get you a permanent ban if it's bad enough.


3. Language

   Burning SoulWorker's language is English, we expect you to talk it, be it in the in-game chat or in the forums. Speaking other languages in private chats is totally fine, just don't talk excessively in the General chat in a language that's not English. Not doing this will result in a warning and in a ban if you insist to talk in another language.

   How are we supposed to be enforcing the rules if we don't know what you are saying?


4. Spamming

   The act of repeatedly doing an action being an annoyance to others is not allowed. Be it making pointless single-word posts on the forum or just outright spamming the chat with nonsense.


5. Trolling

   Trolling or feigning ignorance of the rules will be punished the same way harassment is, and some examples of what can be considered trolling is derailing a thread's topic on purpose, having personal conversations on loudspeaker chat, and jokes that go too far.

   Note that jokes are fine, but we will be the ones to decide where the line between a joke and harassment lays.


6. +18 Content

   Any content classified as 18+ or NSFW (not safe for work) is included, examples are obscenity, nudity, gore, furry, etc. This rule applies to every single communication method inside Burning SoulWorker's community. Infringement of this rule will result in an immediate ban.

   Have in mind that any picture that can be taken in-game, without the game files having been modified, is fine. However, it is still subject to the decision of the staff.


7. Ban Appeals and Discussion

   Ban appeals are to be discussed only in the [Account Support] section in the forums. Any discussion of any sort outside of the [Account Support] section is to be treated as spam or worse and may be punished.


8. Staff

   Before contacting any member of the staff, please make sure you read all the rules carefully and understand them. If you were banned and your ban isn't appealable we will not clear your ban (all permanent bans are unappealable).

   Impersonation of any member of the staff will result in a permanent ban.

   If the rules are enforced against you by a staff member and you have any questions about why, please either ask them via PM's or file a complaint to the Burning Community Manager if you believe you've been unfairly punished. Do note, bans only occur with solid reasoning.

   WARNING: Only give .dmp files to members of the Staff that ask you for them. If someone that is not part of the Staff asks you for .dmp files report them immediately.


9. Advertising

   The advertisement of products unrelated to Burning SoulWorker in any way, shape, or form is strictly disallowed. Penalisation of such acts will be left to decide to the staff and can range from a warning to a permanent ban.

   Discussing other SoulWorker servers (as long as they're official) isn't forbidden, but thereby discouraged. Any other activities outside of the ambit of discussion are forbidden. 

   NOTE: Discussion of other games is not considered advertising, as long as it takes place in the [Off-Topic] section.


10. Account

   Account sharing, trading and selling BSW items for BSW items is discouraged but not against the rules. Once your credentials are willingly shared to a 3rd person outside of Burning's staff, you are fully responsible for any and all actions that could occur to that account.


11. PGC/Real-life currency trading 

   Purchases of PGC Cards or codes from other players is discouraged but not disallowed, and you do it at your own risk, if that player is banned for fraud, you will most likely be banned as well.  

   You are not allowed to sell or trade any items/B-Coin/zenny or other currency on Burning for any real-life currency (NOK, USD, EUR, etc), for anything in other SoulWorker servers, or other games, otherwise you will get a permanent ban on your account.


Game Rules

1. Hacking and Botting

   Use of hacks or bots that give you an unfair advantage over other players is heavily punished, resulting in an immediate permanent ban of your account. Taking advantage of hacks is included here, so if you find a hacker, report them.

   WARNING: Any modification either in the client's binaries, in the data files, or in the anti-hack files will be consider as a potential hacking attempt and might lead to the termination of your accounts.


2. Glitch Abusing

   Conducting an abuse of any glitch, flaw, or exploit within the game to give yourself or others an unfair advantage over other players is strictly condemned.

   Explaining how to glitch, uploading public videos showcasing a glitch, or contributing to glitching are included.

   At first you will receive a temporary ban of 30 days of length, if the action is repeated after that period of time you will be permanently banned.


3. Megaphone Spam

The use of megaphones is for posting important messages such as buying/selling or guild search. I'ts okay to sharing funny thoughts and occasional comments, but it's not allowed to have conversations here.

It's unpleasant to try to announce something and be constantly buried by the chit-chat. Keep in mind too, that the language in the megaphone chat is limited to English.


4. IGN Hoarding and Selling

The IGN hoarding for trade/selling purposes is against the rules. All accounts involved in this practice will be banned permanently.



Forum Rules

1. Post Count Bloating

   Since no one likes a bloated forum, actions will be taken on those that attempt to turn our forum into one by farming or spamming posts. A few examples are necro-posting, single-word posts, and posting several times in a row.

   There's a few exceptions to this rule: +1's in [Suggestions], short posts on [Introduction & Farewell], and necro-posting on [Marketplace].


2. Guilds and Burning Marketplace

   You may only have one active thread in the [Marketplace] sub-forum at a time, and each guild may only have one active thread in the [Guilds] sub-forum at once. 



Reporting Rulebreakers

   If you want to report someone, do it in the [Reports] section and do it with video/images as evidence, otherwise we will not take action.

Use the following form:
