There have been a couple players recently flooding the forums about this, so I need to clarify our policy.
Unfortunately, Rival Ball is a decade old, and it is no longer profitable for us to run the game server. As a result, while we're leaving the server up, we do not have the resources to constantly moderate the game rooms.
We are aware that some people self-play to inflate their rank, but so long as they're keeping to themselves or otherwise being polite, we will not intervene.
However, we do reserve the right to ban anybody who is being abusive to other players. If you encounter an abusive player, your first response should be to mute that player. However, if you're being abusive to other players, don't be surprised when you get banned. You won't get three strikes. We won't treat you like children. You know how you should behave, and you know when you're crossing that line.
While I'm on the subject of banning, flooding the forums is another fantastic way to get yourself banned.
