Before setting up your own Gothic 2 Online server, every owner is obliged to get familiar with the rules and obey them. The regulations, to a limited extent, also apply to any other user of the platform. The reason for this is that we sincerely care about the quality of Your gameplay. This is going to make both, Your work and Your players' gameplay easier, so that you'll be able to enjoy the development of Your server and the time spent there.


1. General provisions

2. Penalty system
(list of prohibited activities)

2.1 • The G2O team is allowed to delete servers from the public server list if the owner or his team happen to break any of the platform's rules.

  • 2.1a ▫ Public incitement to hatred, slander, publicizing detailed personal data, photos, telephone numbers, impersonating other creators (or their associates), unauthorised usage of programms, engines, server names, assets and apps based on a paid license/subsripction (or if the author does not want You to use them), deliberate, using illicit programms, organizing attacks on Discord servers, forums and widely understood bugging on opposig servers will be especially punished.
