[Rules] AtlasRO Server

1 post in this topic



The AtlasRO Server Rules stated here will be strictly enforced in-game, and in some cases, outside of the game. It is expected that every player follows it to prevent any unwanted incidents. Should you encounter any offenders that violate any of our server rules kindly let us know. Punishments are issued at the discretion of an AtlasRO Staff. This includes cases or behaviors not explicitly pointed out in the server rules that could be considered as inappropriate. We reserve the right to change these rules at any time and apply these adjustments, albeit they precede the said changes.



  • In-Game Account is the account that you created through the Account Register panel on our website. The Username and Password that you have provided in creating an In-Game Account is what you will be using to login to the game itself. A player can create as many In-Game Accounts as possible using the same e-mail address.
  • You are entirely responsible for the safety of your In-Game Account/s information. If the player has supplied others with their login information, said player is responsible for any and all actions made on the In-Game Account/s in question, regardless of whether or not the respective player has provided consent.
  • In the event that sharing In-Game Account/s and/or items cannot be controlled, you risk your chances of getting any assistance from the AtlasRO Staff should any setback happens. We do not approve nor encourage players with this kind of affairs and we are not to be held responsible for any actions that may lead to loss of any In-Game Account/s and/or items. You can use the @security feature to secure your in-game items.
  • You are liable and accountable for any results from actions you engage in safeguarding your In-Game Account/s, including but not limited to, password protection, running virus checks, disabling file sharing, and disabling third-party programs. In case of rule violations, any In-Game Account/s may be irrevocably terminated, deleted or cancelled by the Administrators' discretion.



  • We enforce a strict English Only Policy (EOP) over our Global channels: #main (30 seconds chat interval) and #recruit/#trade (60 seconds chat interval). English is the universal language that is why we encourage players to speak in English on the public chat in our main town, Prontera City, but not force it as a rule. Players are allowed to speak any regional language in other chat channels and minor towns. 
    • Punishment: 
      • 1st Offense: verbal warning. 
      • 2nd Offense: 1 minute mute.
      • 3rd Offense: 60 minutes mute. 
      • Repeated offenders will be muted and jailed depending on the case.
  • Harassment comes in different forms of behavior that are offensive in nature, and will not be tolerated. Harassment may include, but not be limited to, verbally abusing an individual/group, stalking, threatening, embarrassing, spreading rumors and public defamation through public chats or private messages. If you are a victim of harassment via private messages, kindly use /ex before reporting it. If the offender changes characters to keep harassing you, the offender and all related In-Game Account/s will be penalized. If you are continuously being harassed by being stalked or spammed even after politely asking the offender to stop, kindly contact an AtlasRO Staff to request assistance. In such cases where a character's name obviously contains offensive words, it is subject to a force name change by an Administrator without prior notice, effective immediately.
    • Punishment: 
      • 1st Offense: verbal warning. 
      • 2nd Offense: 1 minute mute.
      • 3rd Offense: 60 minutes mute. 
      • Repeated offenders will be muted and jailed depending on the case.
  • Scrolling (the act of flooding a chat room/chat window with text or macros causing the screen to roll faster in an attempt to annoy the occupants or prevent them to type and use the chat properly) and any other form of spamming (to flood any chat room/chat window with annoying text or macros; to execute an action or use an item rapidly or repeatedly) is not acceptable. This includes, but is not limited to: (1) continuously begging and flooding the #main and public chats, (2) spamming skills/spells in populated areas in towns and event zones; brewing/forging is also included, if not for a short period of time, (3) dueling (@duel) in extremely populated places, and (4) setting up a chat room or shop near NPCs or warp portals, in addition to stacking (setting up a chat room or shop on top of another person). Chat rooms and shops may only be put up on the sidewalks in Prontera City at least 3 cells away from NPCs; putting them up in the wrong places may cause your character to be force moved or disconnected. Additionally, blocking vending spots to reserve a space and keeping a vending spot by selling overpriced items are grounds for the same punishment.
    • Punishment: 
      • 1st Offense: verbal warning. 
      • 2nd Offense: 1 minute mute.
      • 3rd Offense: 2 hours mute. 
      • Repeated offenders will be muted and jailed depending on the case.



  • Each player's identity should be exclusive. We do not tolerate stealing another player's name with the malicious intent to impersonate them and cause other forms of damage in any way. This includes, but not limited to, impersonation of AtlasRO Staff members, other players or guilds. Character names with any form of Game Master [GM] included in its creation for the purpose of imitating one of the Game Masters' names and claiming to be them is strictly prohibited. At the Administrator's discretion, compulsory name change is possible only if the identity theft case was not intended. Game Master or AtlasRO Staff member impersonations are grounds for permanent account ban.
    • Please refrain from using a name similar to an existing Game Master. Using a name considered to be closely related to a Game Master's grants the player a forced name change.
    • If a certain name was once used by a Game Master and that person is no longer an active Staff member, the name will remain reserved and similar names are not permitted.
    • If the name you have is similar to a Game Master's name, but your name was created prior to the Game Master's existence, you are allowed to keep it. Names created subsequently are strictly prohibited.
      • Punishment: 
        • Impersonation of Player
          • 1st Offense: muted and/or jailed with warning depending on the case.
          • Repeated offenders will have their account/s permanently banned.
        • Impersonation of Staff
          • Offenders will have their account/s permanently banned.



  • Greeding allows you to automatically pick up all items within 2 cells around you and using this skill to take another player's item/s without consent is considered as theft, and is unacceptable. This does not override the order of who gets to pick up the item first, and cannot be used to steal an item when someone else has the first priority over an item dropped. Greed will not share the loot in a party under a "Shared" setting. It cannot be used in towns, PvP or WoE.
  • Looting is the act of deliberately picking up another player's item/s without permission after they have killed a mob or monster, and will not be tolerated. This rule does not apply for MVPs, and we encourage players to utilize the @autoloot command to prevent looting incidents from happening.
    • Loot becomes free-for-all once a player has left the vicinity and it doesn't maintain ownership past death or warping away. In a party setting, it belongs to any party member within the visible area of the loot, if not, then it's free-for-all.
    • Homunculus loot belongs to the homunculus owner.
      • Punishment:
        • Offenders will be muted and jailed depending on the case.
  • Scamming is generally prohibited. All dealings with the intention, implicit or explicit, to deceive or mislead in the form of a trade, vend, or other kinds of transaction are not permitted. Scamming reports will have different punishments and will be taken on a case-by-case basis with total discretion. Depending on the situation, we do not guarantee whether scammed items will be restored or not.
    • Vending with false advertisements on shop titles to purposely mislead buyers, as well as putting up a Buying Store to purchase items for less than its original NPC value is forbidden.
    • With the proviso of In-Game Account/s sharing, the AtlasRO Staff will not be held liable for any unreturned or lost items. In-Game Account/s sharing as well as item/s lending is discouraged to a great extent.
    • Entering into a contract for a legitimate trade and failing to comply makes you liable to undo the trade. If you claimed an item without keeping your end of the bargain can be an act of scamming. Using collateral is highly recommended.
    • Vending non-slotted items for slotted item prices is considered as scamming. The merchant will be jailed with the inclusion of related accounts blacklisted and the amount of zeny scammed out of that vend will be seized from the merchant.
    • Accidentally vending a specific item lower than the price you intend to sell it is not a scamming case. Please practice extreme caution when vending items as it is not an issue that the AtlasRO Staff will entertain. Pricing items is the sole responsibility of the merchant.
    • Bait-and-Switch Trading is a trick older than Kafra that can get you permanently banned. Do not sell rare items for prices that are too good to be true. Making a trade with the legit rare item and eventually switching them with something cheap in the process will not be tolerated.
    • Buying/selling any item and/or service that is based off of trust is in the player's discretion. This puts the player at a great risk and whatever kind of evidences a player may claim to have to support this kind of scamming issue, the AtlasRO Staff reserves the right to deny the player any assistance.
      • Punishment:
        • Offenders will be jailed and/or permanently banned depending on the case.
  • Hacking is any illegal action relating to another player's In-Game Account/s. This includes, but is not limited to, security exploits, packet analyzers, password cracking, any brute-force and spoofing attacks. It is in the full discretion of the AtlasRO Staff on how to handle hacking cases that was not brought upon by server security issues.
    • Any attempts of hacking against our server will be indicted to the full extent of the law. All related In-Game Account/s and IPs may get permanently banned from the Server: the Game and the Community Board alike.
    • In-Game Account/s sharing, particularly inside a guild, will receive partial to no help at all from the AtlasRO Staff. Please be reminded that by gaining access to someone else's character other than yours, you become permanently associated to their related In-Game Account/s list, consequently this gives you a higher possibility to get penalized because of other player's actions on the assumption of serious violations to our rules suggesting an account/IP ban.
      • Punishment:
        • Offenders will have their account/s permanently banned.
  • Bypassing any changes that have been made to prevent players from abusing certrain things within the Server (like using the mercenary system to bypass the disabled Homunculus Autoloot feature) will result into penalties divided into different stages.
    • Punishment:
      • First time: Offenders will be warned and forced to stop any actions they are doing.
      • Second time: Offenders will be jailed and muted for 24 hours.
      • Third time: Offenders will be jailed and muted for 48 hours.
      • Fourth time will result into a permanent MAC IP Ban.


  • Exploiting of any bugs during PvP/BG/WoE/GvG/Events is strictly prohibited.
  • Deliberately bothering players/parties by any means before and during PvP/BG/WoE/GvG/Events is not allowed. 
  • Hunting down a specific player and constantly killing them in PvP without their consent is a form of harassment and is not permissible.
  • Multi-clients are not permitted during official PvP, GvG and Events. Anyone trying to utilize any alternative ways to evade this rule will be dealt with accordingly.
  • Intentionally obstructing another guild during WoE by blocking castle entrances (using skills, items, chat boxes etc.) and putting warp portals to other areas is punishable.
  • Using dirty tricks such as sending a trade or party invite during PvP/BG/WoE/GvG/Events is unacceptable. You can use @noask command to auto-reject all trades and invites.
  • Any abusive behavior (Proper Decorum//Server Rules) prior, during and after PvP/BG/WoE/GvG/Events will not be tolerated. Practice sportsmanship and do not be sore losers.
  • Guilds that will take part on War of Emperium are expected to have a guild emblem that is exclusive to them and visible to everyone. Duplicating another guild's emblem, changing your guild emblem during WoE to confuse another guild, or disabling/using no emblem at all to get an advantage is strictly forbidden. 
    • Punishment: 
      • Offenders will be muted and jailed depending on the case, preferably during PvP/BG/WoE/GvG/Events.
  • When a player joins a battleground group, they are expected to make some form of effort to contribute to their team’s victory. Leeching the battlegrounds will not be tolerated. This includes any method to bypass the AFK detection, as well as standing stationary at the warp-in point (or auto-following another player) to only cast buffs/meaningless skills.
    • Punishments will vary, following an investigation.
  • Players caught participating in battlegrounds on more than 1 client will be punished, and players who are leeching battlegrounds while playing on another client will have both or more of their accounts punished for the offense.
    Exceptions include: Idling in Town, vending, or anything that would not distract you from participating the battleground.

    • Punishment:

      • Offenders will be jailed for a minimum of 12 hours.

      • Repeat offenders will face a jailtime for up to 7 days.



  • Any game modification allowing you to have an unfair advantage over other players is unacceptable under any circumstances. This will result in all related In-Game Account/s and IPs permanently banned. This includes, but is not limited to, the use of common third-party programs (3PPs) like OpenKore (botting program), packet editors, hexed clients/client files, and macro software/script add-ons (hotkeys for mouse and keyboards that provides auto-response in-game: auto-teleport, auto-farming, auto-potting, auto-feeders, etc.)  
    • Punishment: 
      • Offenders will have their account/s permanently banned.
  • Of all the methods of farming, AFK farming by way of autoskills (from gear or class skill) has been a point of controversy.
    We will no longer tolerate this method of farming, as it simulates the unfair advantages that a bot program would give. It is our belief that the skills and equipment were not implemented with this use-case in mind.
    • Dual clienting while farming in this way will result in a similar punishment for on any other account that is involved.
    • Punishment:
      • Offernders will be jailed for a minimum of 12 hours, while all other alts will receive 6 hours of jailtime.
      • Repeat offenders will face a jailtime for up to 7 days.
  • Any form of client modification that gives you a favorable gain over other players is not allowed. The exceptions to this rule are alterations that are generally considered as harmless edits and are approved by the AtlasRO Staff such as minimal effects, no texture graph file mods and cosmetic changes. In general, we do not restrict all acts of client-side edits; hence there are some that are approved by the AtlasRO Staff. For those who are client-edit savvies, kindly refer to our list of modifications below:
    • Permitted Modifications: are player preference-based edits that are harmless and do not present any in-game advantage.
      • Use of Gray Map (custom.grf)
      • Custom Pettalktable.xml (custom.grf)
      • Custom RO Cursors/Pointers (custom.grf)
      • Modified Cast circles and Aura sprites (custom.grf)

        • Punishment: 
          • Offenders will have their account/s permanently banned.



  • Real Money Trading (RMT) happens when a player engages in buying or selling the following via real life monetary transaction: In-Game Accounts, In-Game Items, In-Game Currency or other resources considered unsuitable by AtlasRO and under our Terms of Service. Such transactions to obtain illicit gains made in-game or outside the game is deemed illegal and strictly forbidden. Involvement in RMT in any manner will be grounds for all related In-Game Account/s and IPs being permanently banned
    • Punishment:
      • Offenders will have their account/s permanently banned.
  • Other Game Trading (OGT) is strictly prohibited and may result in all related In-Game Account/s and IPs being permanently banned.

    • Punishment:
      • Offenders will have their account/s permanently banned.
