Fair play and Maturity
Social Maturity and Fair play has been the ideology of booty bay since its inception, and we always seek to uphold these values.
By joining a booty bay server, you agree to and are bound to all rules listed on this page.
- At all times Players and Admins are expected to act with integrity and treat each other with respect.
- Listen to and obey the Admins at all times.
- Don’t take things too seriously, it’s a game!
Players may be punished if they are not considered to be displaying Fair play/Maturity, regardless of whether they have broken any of the below rules. We all like to have a laugh and fool around, but not to the detriment of another player’s experience.
- NO SPAMMING CLAIM FLAG'S on or around the starting islands! Once you leave, please remove your claim flags!
- No claim flag spamming in general - this is a PvE server, you do not need to claim the entire island. Please just claim what you need for your base.
No griefing/harassing people with claim flags. If you place a flag over someones else's current territory please remove it IMMEDIATELY.
(If you believe a companies claim flags are not ALL required, then speak with them about it to resolve the situation.)
- Individuals/Companies found abusing claim flags on this PvE server will be asked to remove them straight away. If no action is taken then you may end up having all your structures removed.
- There are 2 PvP zones on this server (no claim flags can be placed) but ship and land combat will be possible.

- Using any in-game glitches/exploits for your advantage is forbidden.
- Advertising in any form for clans, communities, websites or any other individual/group is forbidden without approval of a Community Manager.
- Any discussion of kicks/bans in-game is considered poor etiquette. We encourage users to visit the Forums in order to resolve all grievances.
