At Scopely, we don’t just make games - we are active players in them, and like other players, we have more fun when playing in an inclusive community.
Behavior that disrupts another’s experience hurts everyone’s ability to play. By following our Player Community Guidelines, we can all work together to ensure that everyone in our games has a great experience for years to come.
Our intention with creating Player Community Guidelines is to help educate players about how to be upstanding community members, give examples of positive and negative behaviors, and help our players find the best ways to play well together.
Our 5 core guidelines are:
PLAY RESPECTFULLY - RESPECT EACH OTHER
Players should only be challenging each other in the game, not in chat. Your intention, the context, and the impact your words and actions have on other players all matter;
Ways to play respectfully:
- Communicate in a way that builds, rather than disrupts the community; we want to make a community that is comfortable coming back, rather than drive others away
- Use respectful language, even when in competition
- Focus on the impact of words on others, not just your intention behind them
- Learn from what bothers others, not just what you would be bothered by
Examples of disrespectful behavior:
- Bullying or harassing another player
- Repeatedly contacting someone who does not want to communicate
- Using hate speech or slurs anywhere in the game
- For example, racist, sexist, anti-LGBTQ+, religious intolerance, ableism (or targeting based on medical conditions), extreme political views, advocacy of hate organizations, and xenophobic statements
- Using inappropriate or offensive names
- Abusing, threatening, or encouraging for someone to hurt themselves or others
- Sending inappropriate (e.g. violent, sexually explicit) pictures or communications in-game
PLAY FAIRLY - PLAY THE GAME AS INTENDED
Scopely games are created for each player to personalize their experience through their own playstyle and how they choose to engage with the features they like.
Game rules exist to ensure fair play! Abusing exploits or unapproved tools impact a player's experience while playing the game as intended.
Ways to play fairly:
- Support healthy competition where appropriate, focusing on strategy and teamwork
- Show good sportsmanship, whether winning or losing
- Follow the rules of the game
Examples of inappropriate behavior:
- Disrupting the gameplay experience of others through abuse
- Lashing out at others who play the game with a different style
- Cheating or exploiting loopholes in the game, or using mechanics against their intent
PLAY WITH INTEGRITY - PROTECT YOUR AND OTHER PLAYERS’ IDENTITIES, AND SHARE ONLY WHAT YOU ARE MEANT TO
Many of our games support social activities that can drive players to share meaningful experiences.
However, sharing information that is private or protected, such as your or other players’ personal information or account details, can hurt that experience. Sharing personal information may also be illegal in certain circumstances, and any breaches may be punishable by law.
Ways to play with integrity:
- Keep your personal account information and unique player ID private and secure
- Respect your own and others’ privacy
- Share content that’s meant to be shared
- Communicate only with other willing players within the game’s chat function or established platforms
Examples of not playing with integrity:
- Sharing others’ personal information, such as contact information
- Impersonating other people or Scopely employees
- Sharing or selling your account to others
- Infringing on others’ intellectual property rights or personal content
PLAY OPENLY - BE WELCOMING TO NEW PLAYERS
A vibrant, global games community is one that is open to people of all backgrounds, abilities, nationalities, and interests, and all should feel welcome and included.
New players are joining all the time, and they look to their fellow players for advice, community, and examples to follow.
Ways to play openly:
- Be welcoming
- Be inclusive of new players from all backgrounds, such as those of a different race/ethnicity, gender, religion, sexuality, nationality, ability, and much more
- Be helpful when talking to new players learning the game
- Recognize that everyone comes to the game with different experiences
Examples of not playing openly:
- Lashing out at those who are learning
- Bullying or belittling newer players
- Driving players away from the game
PLAY WITH ACCOUNTABILITY - BE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR ACTIONS AND THEIR IMPACT ON OTHERS
We encourage players to uphold these guidelines and communication practices across Scopely games and community channels, in addition to the rules in our Terms of Service and rules from particular games or channels.
Behaviors against our Terms of Service may also lead to account consequences such as warnings, limiting access to chat functions, or suspending your account temporarily or permanently.
If you believe a player has violated our Terms of Services, you can reach out to customer support at https://scopely.com/customer-support/ to report it to us.
Scopely is proud to be home to millions of deeply engaged and passionate players worldwide who bring their diverse perspectives and experiences to our player communities.
By following our Player Community Guidelines, we can all work together to keep our communities safe, inclusive, and fun for all.
Thank you for playing!

The following document is published in accordance with the requirements under Part 2 of Schedule 19 of the Finance Act 2016 for the financial year ended December 31, 2022.
This document outlines the approach to tax strategy, tax risk, and planning for the UK
subsidiaries and affiliates within the Group, and is meant to cover all applicable taxes for the UK sub-group, including corporate tax, payroll taxes, and VAT. This strategy is reviewed and approved by UK senior leadership.
Risk Management and Governance
As outlined in our Code of Conduct, the Group and its employees are committed to not only complying with all applicable laws and regulations, but also going above and beyond these standards to conduct our business in the most honest and ethical manner possible wherever operations are maintained.
This level of standard in the Code of Conduct is applied to our approach in managing tax risk and governance in the UK, and in all jurisdictions where the Group operates. We diligently monitor applicable tax laws and regulations to ensure that UK tax is paid appropriately and timely, tax reporting and disclosure requirements are met, and that tax risk is minimized.
Due to the complexity and constant changes in global tax, we manage tax risks and uncertainty internally, but we also seek guidance from outside advisors to inform our decision making and strategy. Key tax decisions are made at the appropriate levels and in consultation with senior leadership.
Our focus is to ensure compliance with applicable laws in keeping with our Code of Conduct, and that tax planning aligns with the natural state of business expansion and operating objectives. We seek guidance from external advisors as appropriate to navigate complex tax rules and minimize uncertainty in interpretation.
Level of Tax Risk
The UK sub-group is part of a much larger global tax group, and therefore the level of tax risk is assessed as a global organization. The Group is focused on proactively assessing the relevancy and applicability of tax legislation to maintain low levels of tax risk or uncertainty of tax positions. External tax advisors are consulted as needed.
Engaging with HMRC
The UK sub-group aims to have a professional, transparent, and collaborative relationship with the HMRC on all tax matters whether historic, future, or prospective.
