      READ THE RULES   12/27/2016

      Just because we're in beta does not mean that you don't have to follow the rules. They're in place for a reason bans and WP will be given if issues keep happening.

You are NOT to go OOC during RP situations or any point in-time. (Example: " I will be reporting you" / "I have this on video" / "This is a green zone you cannot rob me here") NVL - Not Valuing Life - Having no concern for your life. (Examples: Running away from someone who has a gun drawn towards you or drawing a weapon while someone already has one out threatening you.) GZV - Green Zone Violation - Breaking rules in a green zone. Green zones are sought as safe havens you cannot start a hostile RP situation within a green zone. (Examples: Robbing/Killing a player in a green zone when the RP wasn't carried over from outside the green zone.) Though this does not apply if someone initiates themselves by verbal hostility (excessive trash talking in the green zone) FAILRP - Failure to Role Play - Failure to role play can apply to multiple situation such as RDM, refusing to RP in the situation, not vocally presenting yourself to a situation or initiating yourself. When initiating yourself verbally you must give the person time to react to what you've said. Example (( "Put your hands on your head this is a robbery" You must give them at least 5 seconds to comply before knocking them out.)) NLR - New Life Rule - When killed, you cannot remember what happened that lead to your death such as the person, clothes, gang, voice, vehicle, etc. You may only remember what happened vaguely for medical reasons, or, if arrested, you remember all events leading to your death. Metagaming - Gaining Knowledge by outside sources. (Examples: Stream Sniping, 3rd person chat services, steam messaging, etc) This also includes using your phone or using the name above the character to get their name. They must tell you their name for you to know it. Power Gaming - Power Gaming Is creating/using items/actions that do not actually exist to assist you (Choking/tying legs/tackling/stabbing another player when the mechanics do NOT exist in-game.) Exploiting - Exploiting is the act of abusing unintended mechanics (Picking up weapons or items while tied/restrained/macro pushing vehicles/hiding in walls that you are able to walk through, but should not be able to) Combat Logging - Disconnecting from an RP situation purposely (ALT-F4ing or force quitting the game to avoid losing gear when killed, avoid being arrested by police once revived if killed, avoid RP situations by disconnecting, etc.)
