RULES OF CONDUCT

We hope all of our users will have fun and enjoy playing My Basketball Team and in the interest of keeping the game fun and enjoyable for everyone there are a few important rules which have to be followed, in order to keep the game fair for all users.

If you see someone breaking the rules or you thinks somebody is breaking the rules please contact the game administrators via Helpdesk.

Accounts

  • It is against My Basketball Team rules to have more than one account. Any manager caught with more than one account could be permanently banned from the game.
  • It is against the rules to manage more than one team. You are not allowed to log in to the accounts of others, or have them log in to your account. Watching or babysitting your friend’s accounts is not allowed and can result in both accounts being banned. You should keep your password private and you shouldn’t know the passwords of others.
  • If you are connecting via local network and there are other people from your local network that have registered accounts trading between your teams will not be allowed. Trading between teams that share the same IP is strictly forbidden and will result in banning both accounts!
  • If somebody from your local network has a registered account and shares your IP you will have to contact support with an explanation why you have the same IP and provide the user name of your friend, the name of his team, and also the user name under which you want to create your account. If your computer identification numbers are different you will be allowed to create an account.

Transfer Market

  • All bids on the market should not go over market rates that are considered reasonable for a player. All bids that go over reasonable rates take the risk of being identified by our software as overpriced and a potential attempt at cheating.
  • All transfers that go way over reasonable price are subjected to screening by the administrators and they have the authority to overturn any trade and punish the parties involved.
  • We also encourage users to report suspicious transfers or any suspicious activity on the market. Also if somebody overbids on your player it is your duty to report this to support. If you do not, you take the risk of somebody else reporting you as a cheater and being fined. Cheaters will not be tolerated!
  • Overpriced transfers or any other kind of suspicious transfer activity can be reported by clicking on the link to report a cheater next to the bid bar or you can report it directly to support by opening a ticket.
  • Trades to help other managers you know well are forbidden. Transfers between friends, colleagues, relatives etc … will be subject to close scrutiny by the GM’s.
  • Trades between teams that log in from the same IP are strictly prohibited!
  • If it is discovered that a user cheated, this user will have his account locked and he\she will be given an option to explain his actions. If he\she is unable to give a satisfactory explanation he\she will be punished accordingly. The punishment ranges from being fined to having him\her permanently banned from the game.
  • Cheaters will not be tolerated!!!
