While you’re in a King of the Kill match, it’s important to remember that you’re playing alongside 149 other people just like yourself. Daybreak has guidelines and rules in place to make sure everyone can share in the fun, and it’s key to familiarize yourself with these before you play. There are three important behaviors that are not tolerated at all in King of the Kill – abuse, cheating, and teaming.
What Counts as Harassment or Abuse?
Extremely foul language, harassing other players, disrupting playability, fraud, sexual abuse or harassment, impersonating a Daybreak Games employee, and abusing the ticketing system are all examples of harassment or abuse under the King of the Kill Rules of Conduct. You can read the full list here.
What Happens to Harassers and Abusers?
Abuse or harassment of others will result in disciplinary action being taken against your account – this may include official warnings, account suspensions, or account terminations depending on the severity of the incident. Multiple suspensions or account termination will result in the termination of all Daybreak Games accounts, and terminated and banned accounts will have all properties and belongings removed.
What Counts as Cheating?
Using any third party programs which change King of the Kill gameplay in any way (unless it has been specifically cleared by Daybreak Games) is considered cheating. Do not run any software that modifies the King of the Kill client in any way. If you’re not sure whether or not something counts as cheating, read our Help article here.
What Happens to Cheaters?
Consequences for cheating can include account suspension and/or permanent banishment from the game, removal of all match statistics and leaderboard placement, removal of match rewards (including Credits and Skulls), and ineligibility to participate in events, tournaments, and contests. Read more on our Fair Play Violation consequences here.
What Counts as Teaming?
Teaming is defined as two or more players queuing into a match and then proceeding to play and/or assist each other in any form as a group larger than is intended for the existing match. That means that working with any number of other people in a Solo match, working with more than one other person in a Duos match, and working with more than four other people in a Fives match are all considered teaming.
What Happens to Teamers?
Consequences for teaming can include account suspension and/or permanent banishment from the game, removal of all match statistics and leaderboard placement, removal of match rewards (including Credits and Skulls), and ineligibility to participate in events, tournaments, and contests. Read more on our Fair Play Violation consequences here.
