Proxy, mirror and anonymous connections: Effective April 15, 2013, use of sites or programs designed to connect via proxy, mirror or other anonymous means are not allowed. You must connect to the game from a verifiable IP address and a verifiable source. Players using such methods to connect will have their characters moved to Jail and may or may not be returned, at the sole discretion of the Staff.

We need to make this change because we've seen a tremendous influx of people using these methods to cheat. While we realize that some of you are using things like Tor and you're legitimately not attempting to circumvent the rules, we've seen way too much during the past week with others abusing these types of connections and programs. Sorry, it's easier on us if we just ban their use.
