Many of these offenses will receive a warning first, however, some warrant outright bans.
If reporting a player you suspect of this, please try to supply as much evidence as possible.
Players caught circumventing a ban (game or otherwise) will have their new account(s) banned unless the original ban is reversed.
Hacker/Banned Player Association
If a player is game banned or banned from any of the servers for any reason, they are not allowed to evade that ban and play again on a new account. When we catch players doing this they will be banned again for Ban Evasion. Associating with these players on a new account can, and often will, result in a ban for individuals or an entire team depending on the circumstances.
We do not expect people to know the complete history of every individual they play with at any point. That said, when clear and indisputable proof of players helping others evade is available to BWG staff, the involved player(s) will face a ban from all BWG Servers.
Aggressive behavior is a part of normal gameplay in Rust. Toxic behavior is when someone’s actions start impacting the entire server. A prime example of this would be spamming chat.
Offensive material is a very subjective area. Signs depicting bigotry or offensive slurs may be removed by Moderators without warning, and potentially further action(s) may ensue.
To know the severity of the threat, it is important to understand the context behind the statement. For example, if someone says they’re going to “f*** someone’s mom” in all chat, it’s obvious that’s not a real threat. If the player is talking about tracking them down in real life or swatting them, please report them.
Doxing is the act of releasing the personal information of another player. This can include any real-life information such as names, addresses, phone numbers, etc. Players found to be doing this will be evaluated as to the severity, but ultimately, offenses of this nature are grounds for an immediate ban.
Server / Staff Hating
Publicly disparaging BWG or its staff is not tolerated and may result in action taken against individuals who do so. If you have a complaint about the server itself, please submit a support ticket
[Link coming soon]
We take pride in the vetting of our staff however mistakes do happen. When suspicions of abuse arise we want to address them in a productive manner. Ranting in all chat does nothing to address the problem and may result in Moderation response. If you suspect staff abuse, please email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. All reports of abuse are kept strictly confidential regardless of the outcome.
If you’ve been banned and would like to appeal, please create a ticket in the link below.
BWG staff rules apply to all active Trainees and Moderators, regardless of tenure.

Senior Staff gets the final say on all bans.
Admin/Mods are here to maintain the context of the server and help players. This includes answering questions, engaging with players in positive ways, removing toxic players/hackers, helping out fresh spawns, and running community events.
