[UPDATED] Over the last few weeks, we have confirmed that there are players abusing Palmas Sets. As a result, we will begin enforcing similar rules towards Palmas Sets. If players are caught abusing Palmas Sets, there will be consequences. =========================================================== For some time now, the RF community has voiced their discontent regarding players who abuse Archon Armors (aka: Counsel Armors or CA Armors). In order to restrict this abuse yet simultaneously preserve the presence of Archon Armors, we have decided to implement a new rule for all Counsel members and Race Leaders alike. STARTING ON MARCH 29, 2018, PLAYERS WILL ONLY BE ALLOWED TO POSSESS ONE SET OF ARCHON ARMORS, AT ANY GIVEN TIME. Players that are caught violating this rule will receive the following consequences: 1st Offense: All Archon Armor sets will be deleted 2nd Offense: 3-day to 7-day ban 3rd+ Offense: 30-day to Permanent ban For more information and clarity, please review the following Q&A below: Q: GM! Why are you implementing this new rule? A: In the past few months, we have received dozens of reports regarding the abuse of Archon Armors. We do not want players to have an unfair advantage in the game, yet we believe that players still deserve to use Archon Armors if they have been elected, so we never officially removed Archon Armors from the game (as many of you suggested). We hope that this rule will significantly lower the rate of Archon Armor abuse, but still allow players to reap the benefits from wearing one of the Archon Armor sets. Q: What if I have more than one set of Archon Armors right now? A: We suggest you to pick one set you would like to use, and sell your remaining sets before March 29. Q: What if I believe someone has multiple Archon Armor sets? A: Please take a screenshot or video of the player in question, and submit a Support Ticket to report the issue. Our Support Team will carry out an investigation into the issue, and execute all necessary actions afterwards. Q: What if the second Archon Armor set I have is borrowed? A: The rules here are explicit. Even if the extra Archon Armor set is borrowed from another player, it could still be deleted or cause your account to be banned. Q: Can I store an extra set in my bank instead of selling it? A: No. Having an extra set of Archon Armors in your bank or inventory is a violation of this rule. Q: GM! What about Palmas Armors? A: [UPDATED] Players that are exploiting Palmas Armors will also be subject to a ban and possible removal of Palmas Sets. Q: When does this rule start taking effect? A: March 29, 2018. All rules are subject to change. Please feel free to check back for any updates!
