This policy is now to be followed without exception and supersedes any previous actions or policies performed or held by the support staff.

The Main Points:
1. Without confirmation we will not reimburse or compensate for any lost materials or items.

2. We will no longer give materials or currency to compensate for unrecoverable items.



3. Excessive claims, frivolous claims, or fictitious claims will not be tolerated. The support staff and the support ticket system are in place to help players and not to be abused by players for any sort of advantage. Abusing these systems will result in disciplinary bans in the game. No compensation will ever be given as an apology or a means of appeasement, if you attempt to overwhelm us with claims you will be banned from the support system.

Why are we taking this stance?

We are re-adopting and re-affirming this policy because of the excessive and at times fictitious claims we have received, and the extent to which addressing these issues had led to reimbursements and compensations which are UNFAIR to other players who have accepted their losses in good faith. It has also misdirected our energies in the support team towards dealing with the most vocal of complainers while forcing the more reasonable players to wait for basic services such as being unstuck. It is our promise to you, the players, that you will never have to wait for service because our attention is being held by the unreasonable request of another player. That is why this policy is being made public and will now be enforced without exception.

What do you mean by 'confirmation?'

What we mean by confirmation is that the loss can be confirmed, the exact materials or items lost can be identified, and that the loss can be proven to be the fault of bug with the game. IF THERE IS NO BUG INVOLVED WE WILL ABSOLUTELY NOT REIMBURSE OR COMPENSATE.

The following are examples of situations which are commonly misrepresented by claimant players, and for which will no longer be giving any consideration. This list is by no means comprehensive, and merely designed to give a general idea of what is and is not conformable, a bug, etc.:

• Extracting materials in the wrong appliance, such as losing items to the furnace. This is an intended game mechanic and we will never give items back simply because they were mishandled by a player.

• Attempting to refine a material without the material lore for the yield, ie: trying to refine steel without steel lore. The loss of all the materials used in refining is again not the fault of bug, this is the mistake of the player and we will not compensate for this.

• Materials lost while processing during a server restart.

• Being guarded within a city from being unable to understand the flagging mechanics. Again this is a lack of understanding on the part of the player and not a bug.

At the end of the day, despite the bugs Mortal Online is a game in which the players will experience both gains and losses: the losses are just as important to the game as the gains. In the spirit of the game we will no longer give tacit approval to bad sportsmanship by giving undue attention to the demands that we reverse losses, nor will we dole out compensation merely because a given player is having a bad day. Attempting to manipulate the support staff by the reporting of false bugs, misrepresenting a working game mechanic as broken, or any other form of false claims will no longer simply be denied but we will take action against those players who abuse the support system.
