To keep things simple: if your account is shared with another player, Mapko Online's staff cannot offer you any support regarding the return of any stolen, lost, or misplaced items as a result of the account being shared.
B.) Account Security
Making sure your account is secure is solely the player's responsibility. If your account is altered due to a security compromise in our system, we will attempt to recover up to 99% of any items you may have lost as compensation. However, if an account's security is compromised due to the player's actions (Ex. "Account-Sharing", "Downloading Suspicious Files", "Visiting fake websites", "Giving out your account information"), we will attempt to bring justice to the person(s) responsible, but no further action will be taken following.
Being active is the best way to maintain your account's security. As a general rule, we recommend that players change their password every 1-3 months.
The simplest and most effective way to protect your character's inventory is using the Lock of Mystic. Use of the lock of mystic combined with the "Auto-Lock" setting in game will keep your inventory secure from any unwanted access.
Only login to your account in at our official website, launcher from within and game. As for all accounts online, players should avoid using credentials used in other games or websites.

If you find something not working correctly, we urge you to report it. We take all bug reports seriously, and strive to resolve all issues in a timely matter.
1.) Reporting Bugs
If you would like to report a bug you have found, you can visit our discord/email (roto-games@hotmail) and report it to us there. We will deal with all bugs in the order of urgency.

Abusing (Finding and not reporting) any kind of bug found in our game or website (to gain an unfair advantage over somebody else) will lead to a permanent account suspension (Section I. Paragraph A. Subsection 1. Element II). We expect all players to be honest to ensure that our server remains a safe and fair environment.
C.) Map Editing

Furthermore, editing maps in order to "hide" or make your character(s) "out of reach", will result in a permanent account suspension. We take abuse of the ability to modify your client very seriously, and any player found to be doing this will not receive a second chance.
Section V - Hacked Accounts/Characters
A.) Getting Hacked
Any unauthorized accessing of a player's account that results in the loss of items, money, or gear is considered "getting hacked". If your account is compromised, it should be reported as quickly as possible at our discord/email (roto-games@hotmail).
B.) Protecting Your Account
Here are some ways that you can prevent your account from being hacked:
1.) Use strong passwords
Make sure that your password is not easily guessable: ideally, players should use randomized letters and numbers for their passwords. One of the places to get a password is www.strongpasswordgenerator.com. I realize you probably won't remember it, which is why you can save it in a notepad somewhere on your PC.
2.) Don't use the same password from another server
You can play as many servers as you wish, that is your choice, but under no circumstances should you use the same accounts on here as you do there. This increases the risk of your account being targeted.
3.) Don't visit fake websites
Most of the time, fake websites (phishing websites) have applications that will ask you to "install or upgrade your java" in order to run. These are not real, and contain viruses. Once you press ok or allow, the virus will be downloaded onto your PC.
Other fake websites will tell you to login with your account information to "win free imps" and such. They will NOT deliver. Once you login there, their webserver will store it, and there goes your account.
Players should avoid downloading client modifications from unknown sources.
C.) Reporting a Hack
Players should report any account "hack", or compromise, as quickly as possible to our Support Center.
To report a hacked account, create a ticket using this format and send it to email@example.com:
Character that was hacked:
Date/Time you were hacked:
How were you hacked?:
Your IP Address:
Did you share account(s)?:
If you shared account(s), your partner(s) IP address:
Once you have created a ticket, you will be able to communicate with the staff through the Ticket System concerning your case
Section VI - Scammed Accounts/Characters
A.) Getting Scammed
Getting scammed is being tricked into a trade, a player misrepresenting an item, or any theft of an item.
B.) Preventing a Scam
Getting scammed sucks. Here are some tips to avoid it:
1.) Watch the Trade Window
ALWAYS check what you are getting in the trade: scammers will sometimes swap items out for ones with similar icons.
2.) Record Your Trade
In the event that you are scammed, it is best to have evidence supporting your side of the story. Taking either screenshots of video of the trade will help immensely in any actions the staff may take regarding your case.
3.) Use Common Sense
As a rule of the internet, you should never trust any person whose true identity is not known to you.
If you are doing a large trade(involving more than one trade window worth of items), make sure the player is reputable beforehand.
Players should never lend their items to others, even to "test stats", as this is one of the most common methods of theft.
C.) Reporting a Scam
In the event that you are scammed, here's a brief overlook of how you should report it:
Note: Mapko Online's staff will NOT return any items lost in a scam. We can only suspend the account(s) that benefited.
To report a scam, please visit our discord/email (roto-games@hotmail) and fill out the form using the subject "Scam Case". We will e-mail you back (to the email you specified) once we have made progress regarding your case. Please submit only ONE ticket, as submitting multiple tickets only slows down the support process. Ticket support is usually offered between the hours of 6:00AM and 12:00AM server-time.
