    There have been a lot of issues with the general "Trucing" rule. Right now it states: 08. Do not truce. (Don't team outside of official teams)
    For some reason, people still think that it is okay to truce if you have a team, and a person that is by them self.
    Maybe you can state the rules like this:
    #1 08. Do not truce with anyone.
    #2 08. Do not truce. (Absolutely no alliances with other teams and players)

    I'm thinking that changing this would cause less confusion, and less bans.
    Thank you for your time, and hopefully you will take this into consideration.

    The main reason that people think individuals trucing is allowed is because that was the case previously, people are still getting used to the updated rule.

    Ahh, but @Rick someone told me this "I can truce because I'm not in a team it says outside of teams in there." Maybe just take out those parentheses soon?

    This is why we have warnings, honestly most people skim through the rules and don't pay attention to the meaning or simply don't read the rules at all. We shouldn't have to dumb down our rules because more than likely they wont read them fully anyway. The rules are already straight forward and simple. Tell someone the rule, clarify if need be, and if they don't follow suit make a ban request. Mods should follow the steps of Warn, Kick, then Ban.

    Those people need to learn how to interpret English then, the rule really isn't ambiguous.

    You will find people like that everywhere, we can't word our rules in a way that will make everyone follow them. Thats why we have punishments for breaking rules. It's not our fault they don't take the 1 minute to read over the rules. Also keep in mind, the majority of our player base is young kids around 12-16, they aren't known for the being the brightest people all of the time.

    Pretty sure the rules state no loopholes around the rules, which this technically is.

    You could think of it like a loop hole if the person is obviously trying to talk his way out of having to follow the rule. But in most cases people claim complete ignorance to it.
