New Player Behavior Policy

29 May 2013

We have put some new game rules in place that will hopefully keep the battlefield friendly.

As we stated in our last post, we want your Prime World experience to be free from harassment and bullying. You should feel safe in our game, regardless of your skill level or personal history. We believe it is in our best interest and yours to do everything in our power to make this possible.

So here is our new player behavior policy.

These policies are put in place to ensure that Prime World offers the best player experience it can. We encourage all players to help promote these policies both in-game and in our online communities. Failure to adhere to these policies will result in actions against your Prime World account(s).

NIVAL is not obligated to send you a warning before these actions occur. If your account is suspended or banned while participating in a tournament or competition, NIVAL assumes no liability in the loss of any potential prizes or recognition related to the tournament or competition.

The policies herein can be changed without notice at any time NIVAL deems necessary to ensure the safety, satisfaction, and integrity of its player base.

  • Non-English characters, symbols, or glyphs.
