Verbal Abuse

Verbal abuse is any sort of trash talking, racism, sexual harassment, offensive religious comments conveyed to others. You will be punished accordingly depending on the severity of the abuse. These bans have a time span of 1 day to a permanent ban.

Support abuse

This includes the support chat, support tickets and emails. Any excessive amount of spam or impolite requests will be classed as support abuse. These bans can last between 3 days to 31 days.

Account sharing

Sharing of accounts is punished from 1 month to 1 year, depending on the specific circumstances.

Multiple Accounts

Multiple accounts are not permitted on BLAKE GAMES so the user will be left with one account active and any multiple account banned.

Ban Evasion

If you attempt to make a new account to avoid a ban on your main account then the new account will be banned permanently and the main account’s ban will start over. Repeated infractions can result in an extension of the ban length.

Boosting/Ladder cheating

Any method of boosting, this includes elo boosting, illegitimately gaining ladder points or abusing the ladder system will result in your account being banned. The bans range from 31 days to permanent.

Unsportsmanlike conduct

Anyone being abusive towards team mates or opponents in regards to personal conduct in game. Anyone seen to be acting in an inappropriate manor on the platform. The ban ranges from 1 day to 3 months.

Intentionally throwing matches

This can include: Intentionally feeding, intentionally not completing the games objectives and the like. Depending on the severity of the offence will decide the length of the ban ranging from 1 week to 31 days.

Leaving or AFK

Once the game has started, it is forbidden to leave it. In case a player leaves a game, he will be punished accordingly. These bans range from 30 minutes to 2 weeks.

Abusing Captain Powers

This offence can be punished from 15 minutes to 2 weeks.

In game bug abuse

This category includes the exploitation of known in game bugs for your own advantage. This behavior is classed as "Cheating". The ban can last from 1 month to 3 months.

Griefing & Trolling

This means ruining the game for your team and can include giving away your team mates' positions or tactics. The ban can last from 1 Day to 31 days.

Ghosting

This ban is determined by watching one of the opposing players’ stream in order to know the enemy team actions or tactics. The ban can last from 1 Day to 31 days.

Spamming

Spamming text binds repeatedly in-game. The actual content of the written spammed text will determine the length of the ban, which can range from 1 day to 1 week.

Cheating

All 3rd party software that is not allowed by the game publisher and that can give an unfair advantage to a player or team go under the cheating category. This is also not limited to just cheat programs but also includes external scripting.

BLAKE GAMES has its own anticheat and players that get caught by the system will be automatically banned. Anticheat bans are not generally lifted.

Valve Anti Cheat bans are permanent bans on our platform as the account will not be playable as our servers are all VAC enabled.

The ban length for cheating with a game that we host on our platform is 2 years to permanent. This means if you have a VAC ban in any games that we host and have not linked your account yet you will be denied until it reaches two years.

We also do not allow players who have a VAC ban in other games to play for a minimum of 365 days.

Our Policy on Cheaters, macro users and VAC/Game Bans

Cheaters ruin the game for others. Blake Games will not tolerate any cheaters. To insure a fair environment for competitive Gaming we have these rules for all the games we support:

1. A player with a single VAC ban or game ban on record within the last year (365 days) will not be allowed to play in events.

2. A player with two or more VAC or game bans on record will not be allowed to play in events regardless of how old those bans are.

3. Any player caught cheating in our events will receive a 2 year to lifetime ban from Blake Games. We will notify any other competitive gaming organisations with the details of our bans for cheating.

4. If Blake Games receives notification from another competitive gaming organisation that a player has been banned for cheating in their events, the admins will review the evidence and take a majority decision on whether to ban the player from Blake Games.

5. There will be no public accusations of cheating from or against anybody in this server.

Please note that there are no special cases made for anybody regarding our policy on VAC

bans and game bans. Choosing to argue with the admin/operator team regarding how you should be allowed to play since you have a convenient excuse for your ban will not be tolerated.

What to do if you suspect a player is cheating:

If you believe a player is cheating in our events, please direct message an admin and explain why you think this and provide any evidence (videos, demos, etc). Please do not discuss suspected cheaters with anybody who is not an admin. Do not accuse people of hacking openly as (a) this will tip them off that they are under suspicion and (b) you may be wrong. The admins will consider all evidence and/or monitor the player in question, in private.  If there is strong evidence we will follow this process:

1. All available admins will review the evidence.

2. If the majority of admins agree that there is sufficient concern, the player in question will be invited to discuss the evidence in private. Refusal to do so may be considered an admission of guilt.

3. After discussion with the player in question, the admins will take a vote on whether or not he or she is cheating.

4. 80% of admins must agree in order for the player in question to be found guilty and given a ban.

Players are not allowed the use of macros since that gives them an significant advantage over their fellow players, if a player is using a macro or admins are in doubt of him being legitimate, his fire rate will be analysed and if found guilty his team will be disqualified, the individual will be banned for 365 days.

During a tournament, if a team suspects that the opposing team may have cheated during their match, the team has 15 minutes after the match end to file a complaint detailing at least 3 suspected times where the cheating occurred. At the discretion of the admins, the next round matches and tournament may be put on hold while the demos are reviewed by the admins and publically at www.blakegames/demos/

The involved players and other players of the tournament will have the opportunity to discuss. The admins will then vote and the suspected players/team may be 1) disqualified from the tournament, 2) play the next matches with under remote surveillance such as broadcasting via teamviewer, or 3) resume tournament without further action.

In cases where there is no doubt, evidence such as demos will not be made public. If there are doubts or questions, the suspected may be made public to be reviewed by the community.

Please do not ask blake games for any player’s demos.

Cheating and banning policy are listed at https://www.blakegames.com/about/rules.html and may be changed without notice.

Disqualification

There are several ways to be disqualified from an event:

Turning up late to the first match of the event by more than 20 minutes will lead to automatic disqualification due to no show.

A team with a player found to be using either a macro, cheat or any other form of external assistance will be automatically disqualified, and the player found to use the external assistance banned for a year.

Bad mouthing other players depending on what is said will lead to a disqualification from the event. This will be down to the discretion of the admins at hand.

Abusive behaviour to admins and other players from a player will lead to a disqualification of the team the player is on for the event.

Not listening to admins upon being told a decision about a ruling, or action being taken by the admins will also lead to disqualification of the team the player is from if not followed.

Payment of prize money

Payment of prize money will be carried out after the event has finished within the following 48 hours by PayPal. The team captains will be expected to gather email or blakebitcoin addresses for their members of the team that participate in the event. PayPal or blakebitcoins are the only option to receive your prize money with. Make sure you have an account beforehand, so that the transaction of your prize money can be handled fast and smooth.

Insurgency Season and Preseason format

Rules for teams

A team is the actual collection of players on a roster together. A common name, group of origin, community, affiliation, or sponsor does not join two groups of players, each team is treated as an independent group. If a group has two different teams with different rosters, they are treated as independent teams and players cannot be freely swapped between the two teams.

The roster may consist of up to 7 players, and must consist of at least 5 players.

Rules for teams

5 starters

2 subs

Roster may be changed freely during the preseason

Teams need to finalize their roster 3 hours before the start of the regular season.

Teams may substitute starters with subs through out the tournament.

A player can sub for multiple teams but cannot play for more than 1 team in a given round.

Teams found to violate the roster with illegal substitutions will result in automatic forfeit of the match and possibly the entire season. Match logs are checked for the steam IDs of the players in the match.

All players will need to have their blakegames.com account tied to their steam account/id.

Same player can not be on the starting lineup for two different teams in the same round

Same player can be subs on multiple teams, but cannot be listed as starter for 2 different teams for the same round.

If a player is found to be using multiple accounts, this will result in automatic DQ of the teams involved from the tournament and 1 tournament ban for the player and the teams involved.

Team captain does not need to play in every match, but will need to be on the roster (either as a starter or sub) for every match.

Team captain will need to be available to coordinate every match.

Once a round starts, a team has 20 minutes to mark itself as ready. If the team is not ready by 20 minutes after the start of the round, the team will forfeit the match.

        A forfeit will be consider a loss and not an automatic forfeit of the season.

At match start, a team with only 4 players may choose to forfeit or play with 4 players. Team with only 3 players will automatically forfeit the match regardless if the match was played and the final outcome. If the match log shows a team with only 3 players, the team will forfeit the match.

A substitution with a player not on the roster is not allowed.

A team may change the roster twice during the season.  Team capt will need to notify the season admin for each change. The roster at the end of the regular season will be the roster for the playoffs.  Roster cannot be changed for the playoffs.

Use of Theaters and Servers

The theater being used by Blake Games will be the BG theater version 1, and the only servers to be used for the official matches be the servers provided by Blake Games. These are automated and created for each match to ensure a smooth process with an IP address provided on the website. Please ensure you wait until the server has closed to leave it, otherwise the data for the match will be incorrectly submitted.

Non-Blake Games servers will not be allowed to be used unless extenuating circumstances occur, leading to the Blake Games servers being unusable.

Sportsmanship

All members are required to uphold and observe a universal level of sportsmanship. Any unsportsmanlike action which can include, but is not limited to racism, profanity, rude/vulgar acts, abusive remarks, and disrespect of an official are not tolerated. Users who engage in unsportsmanlike conduct are subject to suspension, match forfeits, or any other punishment that Blake Games deems necessary.

Participants must treat other participants with basic respect and decency. Seeking to cause significant distress to other participants is unacceptable and may result in round or match forfeit, or greater sanctions if warranted. Intentionally engaging in behavior that would reasonably cause significant distress to other participants may be punished even if no complaint is raised or harm can be shown. This includes taunting, insulting, flaming, or any negative comments over voice and text chat. Team Captains are the only ones allowed to communicate with the opposing team during an official Blake Games match. Anyone witnessing or experiencing uncivil conduct by a participant should record evidence and report it to an admin.

Teams must attempt to win all games they play. Actions taken for the benefit of any team except your own are strictly forbidden. Collusion between teams is not allowed and will result in instant disqualification.

Captains

Team Captains are in control of every aspect of the team. Team Captains have the right to edit team information, remove members from the team, report scores, and file disputes. Every team is required to have a Team Captain. If the original Captain is unavailable for any portion of the season, another member of the team must become a temporary Captain.

Captains are the only players allowed to contact Admins.

Team Names

Team Names containing any of the following will not be tolerated: profanity, racism, sexism, or general vulgarity. Teams found with offensive names will be contacted by an Admin and made to change their name to something more appropriate. Team names must be distinguishable from all other team names (but can be similar).

Voice chat: Discord or Team Speak

Players must be in their team’s voice channel at all times. Admins will move Team Captains to other channels when necessary. Players may choose to not be in voice chat at all if they wish, but the captain must always be in their team channel.

Players may not message other team’s players unless directed to do so by an admin.

Warm Up

Before the start of the game, both teams must state that they are ready to start the game by typing “.r” or ".ready" into the game chat. Should a player or a team have temporary problem after becoming ready and before the game starts, the opponent must be informed and the start must be repeated.

Overtime

only during the playoffs. details will be posted here once plugin is finished.

Server Connection and Crashes

Players and teams have to agree on a server that offers both sides equal ping (usually a central location, i.e. Chicago or Texas in NA). As it stands now, players with ping greater than 200 ms to a Blake Games server will not be allowed to play. Every player should know that they will sometimes have to play with a bigger ping difference. In this case we have to appeal to the sportsmanship and fairness of the players and teams.

If the server crashes before the first round has been completed in a half, the server must be restarted and the half's score will be reset to 0-0. If the server crashes after the first round, the round will resume with the score from the last completed round.

If a player disconnects, the round continues and MUST be paused at the end of the round to allow the player to return. Players that repeatedly disconnect may not be allowed to continue to play by an admin.

Substitutions and Timeouts

Substitutions may occur after a round is complete not in the middle of a round. One substitution may be performed per half. A substitution is counted for any reason one player leaves and a different player joins. Blake Games Admins may make exceptions for unavoidable circumstances.

A team will be allowed two 5-minute timeouts. We encourage every team to communicate properly if an emergency arises as life does happen. It is also encouraged to always have a substitute player on hand should a real life emergency occur. To call a timeout, type “.timeout” or “.pause” in the game chat. Once a timeout is called it is considered to have been used in its entirety. Players may ready up before the 5 minutes have elapsed to start sooner.

Blake Games admins must be contacted if a player needs to be kicked.

Streaming, Recording, and Casting

-------------------------------------------------

No player may stream a match without the approval of the opposing team. All streams must have a minimum 2 minutes delay. If a player streams the match without consent, the opposing team may dispute the match results and a decision for punishment will be determined by BG Admins which will include forfeiting the entire match to the opposing team.

Blake Games may stream and cast any of the matches at our disretion via the blakegames twitch channel.  Streamers/casters will not be on any team, and will not interfere with the game. Streamers/Casters will NOT act as Blake Games Admins during the game, and should not be contacted.

Teams possess the right to deny Streamer/Casters the right to stream the match for any reason. Please notify a BG Admin if this is your wish.

All streamed matches must have a delay of at least 2 minutes.

Spectating matches in-game is not permitted unless it is for official business (i.e. casting) and both teams have consented and not withdrawn their consent. Admins who are not on any team, are permitted at any time to spectate a match for any reason.

All matches will be recorded using sourceTV.

Reporting Scores

For official Blake Games hosted tournaments, Blake Games servers have automatic score systems, so you don’t need to report it as manually, as it has been prior. The server will close down once it has gathered the information of the score. Make sure to stay on the server until you automatically get kicked out, do not disconnect manually. For pick-up games on scrim servers, the captain's should report the scores to an admin if an admin was not present during the game.

At Blake Games we believe that racing in the virtual world is as much a form of motorsport as racing in the physical one. Our expectation is that all members of our community – racers, officials and employees – will conduct themselves in the same way as a race participant would at an event in the physical world. Each of us owes every other member of the Blake Games community the same courtesy and respect that we expect to receive ourselves.

1.0.0 Much of the satisfaction of being a member of our community comes from the personal relationships that are formed and maintained here. For that reason, we require members to register using their real names, which, in addition to facilitating friendships, promotes personal responsibility.

1.0.1 Emotions will run as high in our races as they do in all competitive environments. But rude behavior – whether in actions behind the wheel, in oral communications through in-sim chat, or in writing on forums – damages social relationships and has no place here.

1.0.2 The Terms of Use and End User Licensing Agreement to which you agreed upon joining Blake Games stipulates that Blake Games will be the judge of what constitutes inappropriate ontrack or interpersonal behavior, and shall have the authority to impose penalties up to and including revocation of membership. We will have zero tolerance for deliberate bad behavior, whether on- or off-track. Those

Code of Conduct Version v0.1

Individuals who are habitually unable to treat others in an appropriate fashion will find themselves on the outside looking in.

1.0.3 While it is not feasible for Blake Games to directly monitor every on-track session, Blake Games admins will randomly select sessions to monitor. Drivers can also report reckless and/or erratic driving and attempts at on-track intimidation to Blake Games admins by sending a message with a complete description of the incident (including server name, session time, and drivers involved in the incident) Failure to drive with respect for other competitors will lead to substantial sanctions. Those who habitually engage in bad on-track behavior will be removed from our community. Blake Games provides a means for racers to communicate with one another before, during and after on-track sessions. The high emotions that are a normal part of close racing do not justify verbally abusive or other inappropriate expressions toward officials or other racers. Disrespectful communications, including foul or threatening language and insults, will not be tolerated and will lead to the cancellation of the offender’s membership.

1.0.4 Suspension

1.0.4.1 Blake Games may suspend a Member for a definite or indefinite period of time in the interest of internet racing, Blake Games or the community. The affected Member may appeal such a suspension to Blake Games admins. 1.0.4.2 Blake Games may terminate a membership at any time in the interest of internet racing, iBlake Games, or the community. Such Member shall have no right to receive, and Blake Games shall not be obligated to refund of any part or all of the fees previously paid by the Member to Blake Games. The affected Member may appeal such a termination to a Blake Games admin.

1.0.4.2 Membership Required

 Every person or entity who desires to participate in an Event as a driver must possess a valid blakegames.com user account with a valid Steam ID attached.

1.0.4.3 Removal from an event

Each competitor agrees to take all steps reasonably necessary, and all steps requested by Blake Games, to protect, perfect or effectuate Blake Games ownership of other interest in these rights.

Each competitor agrees not to take any action, nor cause others to take any action, nor enter into any third-party agreement which would contravene, diminish, encroach or infringe upon these Blake Games rights.

Copyright Infringement

In accordance with US and International law, any notifications of claimed copyright infringement should be sent to us immediately. Such notification can be sent by email, to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Copyright infringement – Digital Millennium copyright act

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof and believe in good faith that materials hosted by Company infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send Company a notice requesting that the material be removed or access to it blocked by providing Company’s Copyright Agent with the following information in writing (see 17 U.S.C 512(c)(3) for further detail):

   A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;

   Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online web site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that website;

   Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity, and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled and information reasonably sufficient to permit the Company to locate the material;

   Information reasonably sufficient to permit the Company to contact you, such as a name,address, telephone number, and, if available, an e-mail address;

   A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and

   A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send Company a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to this website should be sent to: BLAKE GAMES, 1712 Pioneer Ave, Suite 1227, Cheyenne, WY 82001, USA. Company suggests that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice. Also, be aware that there can be penalties for false claims under the DMCA.

About BlakeBitcoin

About BlakeBitcoin and Cryptocurrency:

BlakeBitcoin is a type of cryptocurrency which are innovative new types of digital money. They allow for instant peer-to-peer transactions online (send money directly to your family and friends), borderless payments (cryptocurrency can be used in every country), and fraud protection (transactions are verified and recorded), making them easy and safe to use.

Cryptocurrencies such as BlakeBitcoin are open-source, and no individual or government can own or control them. Since they operate without central authority, they are not subject to the political or economic turbulence of countries. Cryptocurrencies derive their value from their user base; as the demand for a currency increases, so does the price. There is only a limited number of each cryptocurrency in circulation, and new coins are usually created at a predictable and decreasing rate.

At Blake Games, we use a form of cryptocurrency called BlakeBitcoin which is similar to Bitcoin. It differs from Bitcoin in that it uses a different underlying encryption algorithm called blake256r8. The blake256r8 algorithm is shared by 5 other cryptocurrencies named Blakecoin, Photon, Electron, Lithium, and Universalmolecule.

BlakeBitcoin will allow you to compete with or against your friends and family in video game tournaments and send near-zero cost payments to anyone in the world. You will be able to use BlakeBitcoins to purchase upgrades online, or you can download your BlakeBitcoin to your computer so they are yours to keep.

Below are instructions for getting started:

  1. Download BlakeBitcoin wallet. You can see the excellent tutorial by SidGrip on how to set it up. Once you’ve installed the wallet on your computer, it will generate a BlakeBitcoin address (similar to an email address) for you to share with people in order to send or receive payments.  It is very important to encrypt your wallet with a password.  Otherwise, viruses can steal your coins by copying your wallet file.
  2. To encrypt your wallet, go to Settings -> Encrypt Wallet on your wallet software.  Make sure you remember the password. Nobody can recover it for you if you lose the password.
  3. Need to check your balance? This can be done in the block chain, which is a shared public balance book. All completed transactions are listed there, and new transactions are verified against the balance of the owner.  You can check the BlakeBitcoin blockchain with explorers such as the one here:  BlakeBitcoin Explorer
  4. How do I know if my transactions are safe? Each wallet has a secret piece of data which is used to sign transactions, proving that they come from the rightful owner. This signature also prevents the transaction from being altered at any point. Then, through a verification process called mining, the transaction is confirmed and posted to the public ledger.

BlakeBitcoin and Blake Games

April 29, 2018

Happy to report that our game servers have now logged 30,000 players and 2,500,000 kills in April. The back-end development is going well and the focus now is on revamping the website in preparation for alpha testing. Aiming for June but more details will come once ready.

After discussing with long-time Blake community members including BlueDragon, SidGrip, and Josh, we had decided to use BlakeBitcoin (BBTC) as the coin for the BlakeGames platform. Marketing-wise, it affords the most similarity to Bitcoin and likely easier adoption of non-crypto gamers. It is relatively rare with merge-mine and fast transactions.

SidGrip, Josh, and I have agreed to contribute 250,000 coins each for a pool of 750,000 BBTC to use as rewards for collaborators, make bounties, and for promotions such as prizes for playing and game tournaments.

In addition, we are planning to further develop blakebitcoin including new wallets, a website, and new bounties. Unfortunately, the creator of bbtc has decided not to participate so we will be doing this on our own. Support will also be provided for bbtc price on C-PATEX, our exchange of choice at www.c-patex.com.

Down the road, we may even reboot some of the projects from electron such as a twitter tip bot and peer-to-peer coin trading like with BlakeTrader and ShapeShift.

We now have 9 members on our core-team (BT, Josh, MrF, BB, M, MK, Cody, Jerry, and David). We want to thank the community for your support! Exciting times ahead!
