👨🚀 Greetings, Commanders!
👨💻 As you know, at the moment our community is constantly present on three media platforms: VK, Discord, and Reddit. At the same time, the most active of these platforms are VK and Discord. And today we are here to help you understand all the aspects and features of our Discord server!
🚀 We present to your attention the “Discord User Guide”!
👾 So, if you hadn’t done it already, you can join the discord server using the following link.
After joining the server, you will find yourself on the #rules-and-roles channel, where you can learn about the basic rules of the server, the existing server roles, as well as other platforms where our community is represented. First of all, you should familiarize yourself with the rules in detail.
The appearance of part of the welcome message can be seen below.
Let’s take a closer look at the existing roles.
@Community manager – HeroCraft community manager. A person who develops the community and publishes a variety of content for the community. The official representative of the developer company. CM also provides comprehensive support to the players. One of the leading server roles. You can write to CMs if you have questions, as well as tag them on various channels if you need to draw their attention to something.
@HC Developers – employees and developers from HeroCraft. Developers are present on the server mostly as observers. Disturbing and tagging these people on various issues is a negative attitude and a direct violation of the server rules. If necessary, the developers themselves will contact the user to clarify certain issues.
@Leader – the leader of the server’s staff team. The main administrator of the server now is named vampirewolf. He is also the developer of the bot, which helps in the administration and moderation of the server.
@Admin – a member of the server staff. Admins are engaged in the development and moderation of the server. They also help players with obtaining various server roles and constantly monitoring compliance with the rules by members of the community. They are always happy to help and answer your questions within the server. You should not write to administrators in direct messages. If it gets necessary they contact community members themselves.
@Moderator – server moderator. Member of the staff team. Moderators monitor compliance with the rules by community members and also act as a link between the community and the staff. Moderators are always ready to help with advice or dispute resolution.
@Trial moderator – a community member who is in the process of becoming a moderator or admin. Performs the moderator duties as well.
@Champion – the player who achieved the highest ranking in a season.
@Top 10 – a player who climbed to the top-10 during a ranked season.
@Corvette is a player whose strongest ship is a corvette.

OFF-TOPIC – a section for discussion of third-party topics. Here you can also see high-quality memes from the community or from elsewhere. This is where all the memes on our game are published. This section also contains the very popular #bot-command channel, where users interact with different bots. We will cover the bots in more detail below.
HQ-STATUS – server status. This section displays the number of users of different roles, as well as the current number of users online.
🤖 Now let’s talk about the most popular bots presented exclusively on the server.
Macanski AP bot. One of the most popular server bots. Initially designed to simplify the management of rewards and the Auction Points system, it soon turned into a real entertainment station. At the moment, using this bot, you can: get Auction Points (AP), spend AP on specific auction items, check your AP balance, register your support ID, cancel a completed purchase for AP, solve riddles (and get AP rewards for it), play slots using the AP.
For detailed acquaintance with this bot, enter the $ap help command on the #bot-command channel and register in the system. After that, you will be able to participate in many interactive activities.

vw bot. The outstanding and most popular bot on the server. Created as an aggregator of a wide variety of information on the game, ranging from the basic prices of the store, ending with tactical tips for the game and fun facts.
