Welcome to Play Ragnarok Online Zombie! As a standard procedure, the team has decided to have a full copy of our rules and punishments for our players to know about. If this is your first time reading the rules, please take the time to read them entirely.

Universal Rules & Policies
Universal Rules & Policies#1> Lending/sharing/borrowing gear: CODE# iqtpqbzh
Any manner of sharing gear between players is strongly discouraged by the administration. If you choose to share your gear, you assume complete responsibility for what happens to your gear and accounts. If the person you lend your gear to is banned after the gear is lent/given, or does not return the items to you, the administration is not obligated to recover the items. If you share your gear with a player who is ban evading, you will be punished for aiding in ban evasion, whether you know if they are banned or not (more information is available in the rule regarding ban evasion).
Universal Rules & Policies#2> Sharing accounts: CODE# zsgzgjvb
Sharing accounts is strongly discouraged by the administration. If you share accounts with a player who is ban evading, all of your accounts and IP addresses will be permanently blocked. If you share accounts with someone (or log into their accounts regularly) and he/she gets banned, you risk your accounts being banned as well; similarly, if you get banned, there is a risk that anyone you share your accounts with will be banned too.
Universal Rules & Policies#3> Sprite theft, unauthorized editing or distribution of sprites: CODE# utlohwfv
Play Ragnarok Online Zombie's custom sprites are made exclusively for Play Ragnarok Online Zombie and are not to be used on any other server or by any other individual. All of Play Ragnarok Online Zombie's custom sprites, created by any of Play Ragnarok Online Zombie's spriters (past or present), are not allowed to be stolen, distributed, edited, or otherwise used without permission. Absolutely no one is permitted to edit, alter, take, or in any other way modify any of Play Ragnarok Online Zombie's custom sprites. Please note that this includes using any of these custom sprites as bases for creating "new" sprites. Anyone found supplying our sprites to people who a) do not play on the server, b) were banned from the server, or c) any other individual/group/forum/filesharing/download website will be permanently banned as well.
- First Offense (unless sprites are removed within 48 hours.)
- Instant account ban
- IP/Universal account ban
- Forum account ban
Universal Rules & Policies#4> Nonconstructive Criticism: CODE# rgujrlfe
There is a fine line between complaining and giving constructive criticism. Whether it is about the staff or the server itself, this will now be a punishable offense. Complaining and doing nothing yourself is not only unhelpful, but is detrimental to the server's reputation. If you want more events, updates, or whatever have you.. complaining is NOT the way to get them. Instead, try offering your help, or providing constructive and beneficial insights into what we could do to better serve you. The very least you can do is to be supportive and appreciative of the effort and work that the staff DOES put in. This applies to both the forums and in game.
On the forums:
- 10% warn per offense
- Continued offense will result in a ban
- First Offense: Warning
- Second Offense: 1 day jail
- Third Offense: 2 day jail
- Fourth Offense: Up to the GM's criteria
Universal Rules & Policies#5> Disrespecting and/or defying a member of the staff's decision: CODE# buzdzmdc
The staff's decision is final. Players can seek clarification as to why they were punished, however, they may not disrespect, flame, nor be flippant to any staff because of a punishment. This will no longer be tolerated and will result in further punishment. Instead, if you believe you have been punished unfairly, make a ticket in the ticket system.
On the forums:
- 10% warn per offense
- First Offense: Warning
- Second Offense: 5 hour jail
Universal Rules & Policies#6> Inappropriate Language: CODE# zmqinlaf

Universal Rules & Policies#7> Harassment: CODE# buuxxfvs
The harassment of or personal attacks on other players is forbidden. This includes the discussion and/or distribution of any personal or private information or pictures as well as slandering/defaming/spreading rumors about another player. Repeatedly targeting a specific player or persons will lead to more severe punishment. CODE# xxxxxxxxx
Universal Rules & Policies#8> Disrespect (you must respect others and their rights to enjoy the forums and game play): CODE# jiivpmqv
This is an extension of the rules prohibiting harassment and certain types of language. Even if a player is not explicitly breaching any aforementioned rules, any form of disrespect to other players and staff will not be tolerated. Disrespecting and/or patronizing new players or posters is discouraged. Please note that depending on the severity of the offense, such actions may result in punishment. Continual offenses against new players will not go unpunished.
Universal Rules & Policies#9> Advertising: CODE# awozchbr
Advertising other servers, top sites, games, or channels is not acceptable. We provide a game for everyone to enjoy and forums to discuss it, not a place for free advertising.
Server Rules#1> Unauthorized access to server (e.g. hacking): CODE# hpdqmawk
Users of Play Ragnarok Online Zombie are only allowed to access the server via our authorized patcher and/or login windows.
Server Rules#2> Botting (to use a third-party program that plays the game for you, this inlcude built-in macro keyboards to attempt farm): CODE# ikgozgbq
These kinds of programs not only ruin the experience intended for Play Ragnarok Online Zombie, but can also negatively impact the server's economy.
Server Rules#3> Third-Party Programs (to use programs that aid/effect players' gameplay): CODE# mutlsovh
This rule applies to any "bot" , helpers, sprite edits or programs that give any unfair advantage.
Server Rules#4> AFK Farming (to "AFK" [Away from Keyboard] while your homunculus kills spawns): CODE# jnihmham
Farming while AFK gives those players an unfair advantage over those who actually take their time to farm their items. This also applies to AFKing on any class whilst using a Dark Lord card or any other card/item that automatically uses a skill to kill spawns.
Server Rules#5> Bug abuse (To use a flaw of the game for your benefit): CODE# fzrrwscq
Bugs must be reported as soon as possible via @request. If a Game Master is not online to respond said request, the player must file a bug report in our Ticket System.
Server Rules#6> Account Theft (to steal another players account): CODE# rhzdsbwg
This rule will apply to any case of account theft. Stealing items and accounts both fall under this rule.
Server Rules#7> Account Sell/Trade (to attempt to trade your account for one in another server or to sell if for real money): CODE# wsvulrcz
This rule applies at any detectable attempt of selling/trading an account. Things like S>PHP can be considered as selling your account on the Philippines, so watch out what you type.
Server Rules#8> Selling/trading/buying items for money, aka PHP: CODE# bjcaakvd
Selling items is strictly prohibited under any circumstances. Anyone who buys items from another player will have all purchased items removed and also risks their account(s) being blocked. Anyone who is aware of players buying/selling items for money and doesn't report them may also receive punishment, depending on the severity of the case. This is handled on a case by case basis since no two cases are identical.
Server Rules#9> Filing a chargeback/scamming us (To donate/contribute then ask for your money back): CODE# cbnzzbfy
We use your donations to fund and support our servers. Once you donate and file a chargeback, we will be hit with a hefty fee which hurts our ability to maintain and continue to offer the service we do. Players who threaten to do a chargeback may also receive punishment.
Server Rules#10> Ban Evasion: CODE# vdweyhqs
Once you are blocked from the server, you are not permitted to create new accounts or access/play the server by any means.This includes: creating new accounts, hiding items on alternate accounts/guild storages, giving other players your items/asking them to "hold" them for you, borrowing/sharing someone else's account, or any other means of ban evading.
Server Rules#11> Aiding in Ban Evasion: CODE# ecxkxixy
This includes, but is not limited to: holding gear(s) for banned players, or receiving any gear(s) from a person who is banned or is about to be banned; lending or sharing gear with a player who is banned, whether knowingly or unknowingly; letting a player who is banned log in to or use your accounts in any way; not reporting when a banned player is ban evading to the GM team; or any other action that helps a banned player evade their ban.
Since players should not lend their gear to anyone or share their accounts, if you aid a banned player, whether you know if they are banned or not doesn't matter. Your account and your items are your responsibility and you will be held accountable.

Broadcast abuse is defined as using the broadcaster for the purpose of making misleading broadcasts, insulting, provoking, harassing, profaning, and/or annoying other players or the community in general, but is also definable via a Game Master's criteria. Reviewing a GM via broadcaster is instant punishment, there is no way around this. Using the broadcaster for conversation is prohibited. Foul language will not be tolerated as broadcasts are viewed by the entire server. Disguising an abuse with a B> or S>, will also result in punishment. Examples of punishable broadcasts:
- "PM me *insertcursewordhere*-chan."

We do not pay for bandwidth so you can advertise your server(s). It's that simple.

This is, of course, in our best efforts to prevent any type of server advertising and/or misunderstanding between servers.
Server Rules#31> Potential hazard to the server (Anything that may affect Play Ragnarok Online Zombie's server(s) or gameplay of the server(s).): CODE# rqgnyhsy
Just because you don't find something stated as forbidden in this document, doesn't mean you should do it. The golden rule is to use your common sense.
