If you think a player is cheating on our servers, we have multiple ways of reporting them. You can either use /report command, or mention, message a moderator on Discord.

2. Once you type /report, you will see list of offences, it will look like this;

Pick the one which you think fits best for the player you reported (for example pick the diamond sword if you think the player is cheating) easy as that, the report will be sent straight to us and one of our Moderators will deal with it.
Reporting a Hacker on Discord
Regarding reporting a hacker / rule breaker on Discord, we'd highly reccomend you to look at the right of your screen where you will see a list of Moderators who are active at the moment. You can either mention them in the #staff-help channel or PM (private message) them, we will be responding to you quickly, as soon as possible.
For example, you can click on Addy and private message him or, you can do @Addy in the text channel and reach him out. You should contain who are you reporting (nickname), reason of your report and an evidence of your report (if possible).

Contacting Clan Staff
If you have any questions, issues etc. about clan battles, you can always contact to a Clan Staff on our Discord. Click to available moderators on Discord and see if they have the Clan Staff tag. If they have it, you can freely ask anything about clan wars!
Requesting to see your ban evidence:
After your punishment, you can ask the moderator who punished you to see your evidence. Moderators have right to not send you the evidence directly and ask you to appeal. Do not abuse them if they refuse to send you the evidence and make a ban appeal. You'll eventually see your evidence after your appeal has been accepted/declined.
Contacting Senior Moderators
In this section of our article, we will be going over on how to contact a Senior Staff for;
- Ban Disputes
- Moderator Application
- Getting Your Donor-Rank on Discord
After posting your ban dispute, I highly recommend you to not ask Senior Moderators to check your appeal excessively. We understand waiting might be little difficult but you have nothing much to do after you posted your dispute. After you recieve a message from a Sr. Moderator, if you didn't really understand what they meant with their message, you can ask them on Discord to explain their message for a bit more information but please, do not ask them to check your appeal over and over again.
Make sure you read this article before posting your moderator application. What you should and shouldn't do is clearly given there. One of them is to not ask Sr. Moderators to review your application. It may result with the rejection of your application. After you recieve a message from a Sr. Moderator, if you are having trouble to understand the message written by the Sr. Moderator, you are free to ask them to be more clear with their message.
Getting Your Donor-Rank on Discord
You can either private message a Sr. Moderator or ask to get your rank on Discord in the #staff-help channel. Once a staff member notices your message, your rank will be given as soon as possible.
