This is the criminal law of BattleAsya. The rules listed here are subject to change. Updated on 3 October 2020
Chapter 1. Preliminary
BattleAsya is a community under the rule of law. The law stipulates what behaviours are beyond social norms, and those who break the law should be brought to justice. Any attempt of getting around the rules with loopholes or grey areas will be punished accordingly. While the punishment could be as lenient as a short mute, a permanent suspension could be issued in a more serious occasion. In other words, judgement is made based on the severity of the offender's violation. However, we do handle some cases exceptionally by exercising of our discretionary power to cater to the difference in nature of the situation.
Section 1: General Ordinance

(a) By using hacked clients;
(b) By using client add-ons, modifications, or resource packs with alterations to the way of how clients send data to the server;

shall be guilty of an offence of "cheating".
(2) With the provision of section 2B, approved modifications are excluded from the definition of cheating from subsection (1).
(3) Subsection (1) shall not apply to any person exempted by the administration.
(4) The definition of cheating shall not be limited only to those listed in subsection (1). When defining what act constitutes to cheating, the spirit of this legislation, which is the provision of a fair and disciplined environment, has to be considered and respected.
(5) If any person is punished by the Anti-Cheat for cheating, it shall be presumed, in the absence of evidence to the contrary, that such person is cheating, unless he or she is able to give a satisfactory explanation to justify his or her innocence.
(6) If any person pretends to cheat in a way that he intends to be punished or looks like he intends to be punished, it shall be presumed, in the absence of evidence to the contrary, that such person is cheating, unless he or she is able to give a satisfactory explanation for such doing.
(7) If any person resists or rejects to cooperate before or during a screen-share session that is demanded by the administration, it shall be presumed, in the absence of evidence to the contrary, that such person is cheating, unless he or she is able to give a satisfactory explanation for such doing.
(8) If any person cheats outside our jurisdiction, it shall be presumed that such person will cheat, or will likely to cheat in our jurisdiction, unless he or she is able to give a satisfactory explanation to justify his or her doing. If not, then he or she can be punished in accordance with subsection (1).
Hacked clients: Wurst, Wolfram, Flux Client etc... with fly/speed, triggerbot, aimbot, killaura, reach, anti-knockback, velocity etc.
Client add-ons, mods, or resource packs that alters the way how clients send data to the server: nametag changers, bridge mod, scaffold mod, xray mods, xray resource packs, inventory sorters, auto-armor, knockback modifier, reach modifier, potion effect magnifier, etc.
Third-party programs that modify the way you click: auto-clickers, macros, auto-text, auto-command, multiple attack buttons (multiple buttons/keys bound to left-click), editing hardware to allow clicking faster than humanly possible (drag clicking), butterfly clicking and changing default mouse interactions (like double/triple click on a single click).
Unapproved mods: schematica, regedit
Exploiting bugs: Bug Exploiting is strictly prohibited. Use common sense when you have suddenly found a way to get an advantage. Further abusing something that is clearly a bug intentionally or not intentionally will still be punished severely. In the occasion of a very serious exploit, the resulting punishment regardless of the quantity of offenses beforehand (history) will be a permanent suspension - examples of this includes but, once again, not limited to the duplication of items and unlimited money exloit. Generously reporting these bugs, however, might have the possibility of receiving rewards from the government.
Cross-teaming and team betrayal: Teaming, if not specified, shall be assumed to be allowed. (Teaming is allowed in the PvP Arena of Survival (Faction), Skyblock Survival and KitPvP.) However, Cross-Teaming and Team-Betrayal are not allowed in SkyWars and EggWars.
Combat-logging: Sportsmanship is highly valued in BattleAsya. Logging out in midst of a battle to knowingly avoid combat / death without consent from your opponents or without a reasonable explanation is considered as a form of cheating. Since this cowardly tactic often denies your opponent some victories or loots that they could have earned from your possible deaths, players who are found to be doing this repeatedly and deliberately will be penalized severely, in accordance with the law.
Spoofing ping: Extreme ping can be considered as a form of cheating under certain circumstances. A 300ms connection to the server is considered as lagging whereas a 500ms connection to the server is considered as extremely lagging. Players with ping higher than 300ms might risk to be penalised by the Anti-Cheat while players with ping higher than 500ms, once being found, will be kicked immediately until they have maintained a much stable connection to the server with an average ping below 500ms. Abusing lag by intentionally changing your ping to an extremely high value is a serious offence, and is actually considered as a form of cheating.
Alternate accounts: The use of multiple alternate accounts is generally allowed. Our system allows up to 15 account registrations per IP. However, if you are found to have a large and suspicious amount of personal alternate accounts, for instance, 10, in the purpose of exploiting certain mechanism, you would be investigated or even be penalized. In addition, evading bans, mutes or jails with the use of multiple alternate accounts are strictly prohibited in accordance with the Course of Justice Ordinance.
Rejecting a screenshare: Our staff have full rights to demand a player, especially someone very well-known in the community, to join in a compulsory screenshare session through AnyDesk, if we reasonably believe that he is being suspicious. If you are asked to do so, then you have to cooperate, follow the instructions and attend the session immediately, without leaving the server. If you refuse to cooperate, or do something meaningless to resist (e.g. giving invalid excuse or eventually leaving the server), then we will assume that you are trying to avoid a screenshare primary because you are cheating. If so, then please expect prosecution to follow.
Purposely triggering the Anti-Cheat: You are just asking a ban for yourself if you cannot stop playing with the Anti-Cheat thresholds. Some players love to exploit certain Anti-Cheat detection defects. Some even try to act as if they are cheating. If you insist to do so, you can be punished severely. You are not allowed to test the Anti-Cheat. That is not an valid excuse. Only authorized individuals will be allowed to test the performance and functionality of the Anti-Cheat solution, not anyone else.

Part 3. Offences Against the Authority To embody the rule of law, it requires not only comprehensive statutory provisions and effective law enforcement, but also people's awareness and observance of the law. Our staff perform their duties to safeguard the overall interest of the community. They are absolutely not seeking personal gains or making life difficult for players with intent.
All along, staff enforcing the laws have been performing their duties in a professional and impartial manner in accordance with the law to serve the community with dedication. They should be respected and not be insulted verbally or by any acts. However, in recent months, there were frequent occurrences of incidents where staff undertaking law enforcement duties were arbitrarily insulted or provoked by members of the community. This has greatly increased the their work stress and the difficulties in performing their duties, dampening their morale and passion for serving the community. Such circumstances are certainly not conducive to the benefit of BattleAsya.

(3) Depending on the actual circumstances, whoever commits insiding shall be guilty of an offence of theft, trespassing or mischief.

(6) The restoration mentioned in subsection (3) and (4) can only be done when the situation allows.
Illustration 1: Offenders will firstly join a targeted faction, island, or town. They will then try to gain a mutual truce from the team, planning for their final move. At the end, when the time is right, they will be taking or destroying everything, unclaiming some of the territories and leaving without a trace. This would usually be done in an alternative account. Since insiding is the only possible way to grief a protected area, it is, therefore, strictly prohibited.
Illustration 2: When a certain player leaves the faction or island and lawfully takes the personal items he or she specifically placed before, we will not consider it as a form of insiding. A player is also allowed to take his private base with him. A private home or personal claims are defined as claims in which bases were exclusively built by one person.
Illustration 3: If someone else in the faction or island has a set home in these claims, it will be considered as the faction's or island's property. It is the player’s responsibility to retrieve their items upon leaving the faction or island. If a player leaves a certain faction or island and decides to teleport people inside of the base, or uses his homes inside of the base to raid the faction, we will also consider this as insiding.
Illustration 4: When a faction or island has enabled pvp in its territory, killing would then be possible. In such sense, killing in enemy bases or on any of the islands would not be in violation of the rules, if and only if the player does not set a home in the designated territory beforehand.
Illustration 5: There is actually no guarantee for a complete fix and rollback for the involved faction/island after the incident. The faction or island community itself shall actually take all the responsibility for accepting any players to join (inviting a stranger to your faction, accepting a random teleportation request, trusting an insider etc.

Explanation 1: Since this is a network governed by the Government of BattleAsya, we, the only authorised statutory body, therefore have the ultimate discretion and power to decide who shall stay and who shall not. In essence, we have reserved all the rights to remove any players at any time and without having to explain its decision. We could also declare any members of the community a persona non grata, and such a member would then be considered unacceptable and will immediately be deported from the network with a permanent account suspension. Everyone joining the server is deemed to be in favor of this fundamental basis.
Thank you for your time.
Your understanding, cooperation and participation is of paramount in constructing a better BattleAsya.
