    Hi everyone! We hope everyone is doing well within these crazy times! :laugh: over the past few days the BrokenLens staff team has been working together to create 6 new rules to make everyone’s gameplay much more fair.

    • Excessive Mutes > 5 day ban > 7+ mutes all within a year
    • Inappropriate skin > 2 day ban > skins containing inappropriate images, logos, body parts or anything else a staff member feels is inappropriate.
    • Inappropriate crew > 5 day ban > founder is temporarily banned
    • Kill / win farming > 2 day ban > farming wins or kills (etc) in specific games
    • Cussing / spam in pvt > general muting rules apply
    • Targeting in splatter > 1 day ban > killing the same specific person 5+ times in a row.
    once we have everything situated we’ll go into more detail and post threads on the two rules that could potentially be more confusing, like how to report inappropriate crews and people farming wins & kills. For the time being we’ll have a brief explanation here :)

    Inappropriate crews > whenever wanting to report an inappropriate crew you MUST see the crew in game. Example: upload_2020-7-30_0-15-45.jpeg
    you are not allowed to search up whichever crew using the Brlns app. You have to see someone who happens to be in an inappropriate crew win a game, it doesn’t matter if it’s a member or not, as long as the crew is being publicly shown to the server we will temporarily ban the founder. Until we have a more convenient way to delete inappropriate crews this is the only action we will be taking, you are not allowed to report the same inappropriate crew more than once. With this rule we hope to limit the amount of inappropriate crews constantly created and punish the users who’ve created bad ones already.

    Farming wins / kills > once we decide on which games you aren’t allowed to farm in, those will be publicized but until then you overall shouldn’t farm on ANY games. For the time being you should consider it a global rule. We will not be accepting screenshots for these types of reports, we will only be accepting video evidence of farming kills or wins. Regardless of how the farming is being done, it doesn’t matter if it’s on an alt account of your own, your friends, or even random people, if you’re farming anything at all you will be temporarily banned. These reports will be handled carefully and logically, if the staff member doesn’t feel it’s enough evidence the users involved will not be banned. If possible we’d want video proof of multiple games however if one video is deemed enough proof that will be decided upon the staff team.

    Excessive mutes > we’ve dealt with many players who’ve been muted far too many times for extremely rude behavior and we hope to limit the amount of mutes with this rule, we hope everyone is aware of the 4+ bans within 3 months because with all these new rules you will easily be permanently banned if you do not follow ALL the rules correctly. Mutes from years ago will not count, all the mutes (regardless of whatever they’re for, spam, cussing, rudeness, etc) if you reach 7+ overall mutes you’ll receive a 5 day ban.

    we’ve also decided to start muting people for things in pvt, wherever it’s spam or cussing the general muting rules now apply to Private messages. Whenever you’re reporting someone in pvt these screenshots MUST be new and not ones from ages ago, if anyone is caught falsely reporting users or using old screenshots the reporter will be temporarily banned for false reporting.

    Targeting - Splatter > Whenever reporting players for targeting in splatter, we are only accepting video evidence that is not cropped, cut or edited. we need full video proof of the player specifically splatting you 5+ times in a row without going for anyone else. While we’re still working out the details and how exactly we’re gonna go about it, whenever we receive videos of targeting it’ll be discussed between the staff and decided upon as a team.

    we ask everyone to follow these rules accordingly and report anyone seen breaking them along with all our other rules. Sincerely, The BrokenLens Staff Team.

    Thank you for adding a rule of muting people for PVT’s! Some people can just be really nasty!

    That was our main concern since people were able to get away with lots of things that should’ve never been allowed. :p

    Overall, the rules are fair. I honestly fear I could break a rule and get banned. Hopefully I don't screw up. It'd be a shame.

    a few of these rules will be discussed between the staff before any of the players are banned mainly just so we’ll all be on the same page and recognize the different ways players will break them, especially kill / win farming. :giggle:

    you simply aren’t allowed to farm wins. Like getting into a game with your friends and making them all leave, or killing everybody expect your friend and having them leave multiple games so you’ll get the win. You also aren’t allowed to use alt accounts to farm wins / kills, which should be self explanatory.
    no.. it’s like if you get your friend to leave a game you’re in and you don’t attempt to fight each other, if you do it multiple times while avoiding each other throughout the the whole game you’re just farming wins. Or if you use alt accounts in replacement of players / friends and you make them leave once they’re all the last players to give yourself wins then it’s bannable.

    Ohhh I thought kill farming was like exp farming- like in MW when you go in with a bunch of food and just keep wiping out teams- although I do that a lot in MW because usually a base has obsidian and I don't realise but is EXP Farming like this bannable?

    Also thanks for the pvt mute- I've had people say some really rude things when I kill them, which is actually one of the reasons I changed my name to dhaysie in the first place :p

    Tbh 2 day ban isn't that unreasonable. I think farming wins is an overall unfair way to level up so I think it's justified.

    It can be done multiple ways, a wonderful example would be oitc - killing your friend or alt account until they die (without the friend making an effort to fight back & willingly allowing them to kill.) or any other games where people purposely kill their friends multiple times in a way it’s being farmed.
