  7. Only provide game tips to Dodger when asked. This means no backseat gaming. Don’t tell her what to do and how to do it unless she directly asks chat for their help (this will be made very clear). It’s not cool to gripe at a person trying to have fun!

  5. Players violating the rules on any Dexbonus Service may be banned from any or all of the services.
  6. Bans (except temporary twitch bans) can be appealed and/or discussed by submitting a ticket at https://support.presshearttocontinue.com/.  Bans cannot be appealed or discussed anywhere else.  Any discussion about bans outside the support system may result in more severe action (such as a ban extension).
  7. Abuse of the ticket system, including repeated tickets about a closed matter may result in a permanent ban from submitting tickets, as well as permanent bans from some or all Dexbonus Services.
