Forum Rules [Updated 12/21/2016]


Please respect your community. Respect each other as you all enjoy the same thing – The Game.

We encourage open and friendly discussion of the game and the Community. Moderators and Staff have final decisions on all matters, and are here to make sure that the Community remains a friendly, fun place appropriate for players of all backgrounds, ages and groups.

It is the forum member's responsibility to stay up to date on forum rules and to honor the behavior outlined.


These forums provide an area for constructive player discussions of the game. It also allows players to
help each other identify bugs and issues, and help each other reproduce and resolve them.

These forums are not the most direct way to contact support. If you’re having an issue with your game and you need direct assistance, please tap on the FAQ/Support tab within the game.


Please make sure to stay updated on these rules by reviewing this page from time to time.


This is a private board. As such, decisions made are final.
We reserve the right to remove any message board content without notice for any reason.

Rule 1: Responses to rule violations
Violating these rules will result in warnings, either formal or informal, suspensions, banning, or other sanctions.

Rule 2: Respect other users on the forums
- Do not make attacks or insult other users, either in the forums or through private messages. Disagreements and debates are fine, but don’t make it personal.
- Do not attack groups. This includes professions, races, religions, sexual orientations, genders, incomes, or even vague groups like “you people.”
- Do not use ill terms which are offensive to groups, do not “flame”, “troll.” or “haze”.

Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure
- Make your posts in the appropriate forum.
- Please use the Search function. If a relevant thread already exists, please post there instead of creating a new thread about the same topic. Duplicate threads will be closed to keep the forums orderly and easy to navigate.
- Keep off-topic posts in the off-topic forum.
- Don’t start discussions about games that are not ours.
- Do not cross-link to other message boards or websites unless approved by a moderator.

Rule 4: Respect the law

- Do not encourage users to break terms of service. This includes giving information about how to find scripts, exploits, or cheats, as well as arranging to buy or sell accounts or virtual goods.

Rule 5: Respect the audience
Think about who you're talking to. Users may be as young as 13 on these message boards, and may be male or female, and from countries across the globe.
- Keep your language civil. Profanity is frowned on.
- Do not post Adult Material, inappropriate graphic sexual content in any format, or links to sexually explicit sites.
- Do not post graphic images or explicit descriptions of violent acts.
- Do not use an avatar or signature that could offend other users. They have to look at it a lot.

Rule 6: Respect privacy
- Do not post any private emails or private messages unless you have the explicit permission of each person involved in the exchange.
- Do not post private communication between customer support, members, moderators, or administrators on these forums, or anywhere else. (This include support ticket responses)
- Do not post any information covered by a non-disclosure agreement or beta testing agreement. Even if you somehow have inside information about our competitors, for legal reasons we don’t want to hear it.
- Do not post Facebook information about other forum users.
- Do not post any private information about other users.
- Do not post in-game information in an attempt to have other players attack your target. Be careful to not cross the line into bullying.

Rule 7: Do not spam
- Do not post repeatedly about the same topic.
- Do not spam users on the forums or through private messages.
- Do not start a thread without actual purpose.
- Do not start a thread about a news story or article unless you make it clear what the story is about, and offer your own opinion to start a discussion.

Rule 8: Respect your account
- Do not share your account information with other individuals. You will be held responsible for any rules violations that occur under your account.
- Do not create new accounts or use other tricks to avoid suspensions or bans.
- Do not create ‘sock puppet’ accounts – multiple accounts created just so that you can agree with yourself and make it seem like your ideas have more support than they do.
- Never include your e-mail address or any other personal information in posts.

Rule 9: Respect the Moderators
- Do not post using the color red. This color is reserved for moderators.
- Do not impersonate moderators. Do not claim to speak for the moderators.

Rule 10: Respect the decisions of the moderators
- The moderation teams reserves the right to warn, suspend, or permanently ban users judged to be acting against the spirit of the rules, even if the user is following the letter of the rules.
- Do not argue with moderators about moderator decisions. You can disagree with a moderator’s opinions, just like any other poster, but when they post moderator actions in red text, it is considered final.
- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

  • Lag in Chat----to the devs

    I use wifi on iPhone 5 and lately chat has been slow. When in EvE and playing, the chat screen at bottom does not show the recent posts, have to open up chat completely to see whats going on and then you see there have been 5-10 posts from what was showing on the condensed screen of chat.

    Has anyone else said this because I couldn't find in search? I have deleted and reinstalled and still seems to do it. Wifi is running at 6Mbps and phone is optimal. lol

    Thanks for taking the time to look into this.

    I know this to the devs but I'm just saying I've noticed this myself for a confirmation.
    I am not in danger, I AM THE DANGER!

          I don't suffer from this..
          Step 1) press home button
          Step 2) relaunch app

          Problem solved and its faster than waiting for chat to catch up.. This also proves its more of an issue on the client side or with the phone than the server

            Like I said. Ive tried everything. And I'm sure its not just me.

            Like right now war is going on and a lot of people didnt get the new orders cause when we open chat the new orders are 7 comments above the bottom.

I wont think of uninstalling and reinstalling either, I will not also think of checking the ping from me to server and notice the out send rate is fine and the return rate sucks, but that may not be PA and could also be provider.. Nope wont do any of that because I am not as smart as voodoo..
                Lol ocdo just trying to help not so much jab at people. I mentioned in another thread similar UWE could be utilizing ca's old servers or UWE has outgrown its current servers.

                But like I said in just trying to help here nothing more.. First rule of troubleshooting start with the simplest and easiest explanation first. Which in this case is to rule out your equipment. Then you can narrow it down to service provider or pa.

                You be surprised just how many calls go into customer support and more often then not the problem is fixed with "plug it in" or "turn it on"

                    There's other reasons for that than just lag.. But back to the topic here...

                    I honestly think that if most people's lag issue isn't device side then UWE has outgrown its current server. Usually the case when new mmo's get launched.. Start small and then as they outgrow the server more and better ones are added. And we may be on the cusp where pa has to make a choice, but right now their concern is more geared towards protecting their employees understandably so.

                    Hopefully some of the temp fixes mentioned here will help others. And that's the ultimate goal of a forum

                      I never used to have lag... I'm getting a consistent 10-15% "Request Timed Out". Seems like the extra handshaking SSL does is probably to blame (the encryption/decryption shouldn't affect too much).
