  • When CivUniverse was founded players who maliciously leaked other players real life personal information (doxing) were only punished with 2 week bans, which was unprecedented in the Civ community which usually permanently bans doxers. Albeit, CivUniverse's doxing ban length was increased, but no permanent bans were ever issued.
  • The CivUniverse administration were noticeably lenient with who they let into their community including those who have doxed routinely and used VPNs to evade bans.[1]
  • The CivUniverse community consistently used misleading/false advertisements to promote CivUniverse, using original content from other Civ servers such as CivRealms[2], CivClassic[3][4], Devoted[5], and Civcraft[6].
