Punishable

  1. PvE No-Yoinking Rule: Do not abuse your PvE privilege. If someone is already there when you arrive, please leave: Heli; Bradley; Cargo; Oil; Excavator; Train Loot; Activated Hack Crate (on countdown). If they see your name and report you, your PvE will be revoked.
    • PvP players are excluded. They can do whatever they like.
    • Airdrops are excluded. They are fair game for anyone.
    If you are a PvE player doing the event and a PvP player turns up to ransack your loot you can stay and argue/complain/beg or just try to take the loot quicker than him.

  2. Solo/Duo/Trio.
    • PvP players: do not hang around in a group of more than 3 anywhere, for any reason.
    • PvE players: stay away from PvP players except inside your base.
    • All players: you may stop and chat with anyone for a couple of minutes, but then please move along if you are violating the rules above.
    You may have as many as you like in your clan/group as long as you don't roam or PvP (including base defence) with more than 3 at once. TC auth is limited to 3, that's for you to deal with.

  3. Global chat abuse: Banter, bad language and good-natured smack talk are all fine but personal abuse, name-calling and other toxic behaviour in global chat is not. You may get away with it if your insult is hilarious eg. "horse rustlin' sweat lord", but unfunny/serious/repeat offenders will be globally muted.

    Dealing with global chat abuse

    Do nothing! JimDeadlock regularly checks chat logs and will take appropriate action in due course. Optionally you can a) PM Jim on discord to give a heads-up, and b) use the mute button on the chat bar to block them. Above all DO NOT RESPOND! If you engage with the offender then you automatically lose your right to complain since you've decided to take matters into your own hands. You may even end up receiving the same punishment as the original offender if you get abusive.

    No action will be taken against voice/PM abuse. You can deal with this yourself, see below.

  4. No hackusations. If you suspect cheating please report it to JimDeadlock privately and I'll investigate. Confirmed cheaters do get banned promptly! Do not call anyone a cheater in-game - not only does this break rule #3, but you are alerting him, making it more difficult for me to catch him at it!

    This is a non-EAC server so we inevitably get some players with gamebans on their profiles because this is the only place they can play. They are welcome as long as they don't cheat here. They've received their penalty of being banned from all other servers and they deserve the chance to turn over a new leaf without being hassled about it.


Informational

  • Voice/PM abuse:

    Voice blocking: use the mute icon (right of the chat bar) to block the offender, this will also hide their global chat from you.

    PM blocking:

    /ignore add <name/steamid> -- block
    /ignore remove <name/steamid> -- unblock
    /ignore list -- list

    If a blocked player tries to PM you he will receive a "muted" notification. Pro tip: send your insult and then block immediately so you get the last word :D

  • Raiding blocked until final week. It's not possible to damage buildings for most of the wipe, but save up your boomage for Raid Week!

    These items can be damaged at any time: twig; sleeping bag/bed/towel; box (large/small); prison cell/chainlink gate/wall; tool cupboard; autoturret; landmine; watchtower.

  • Limited PvP. It's relatively peaceful here, but if you want to completely avoid PvP then check out our unique PvE Modeᵀᴹ
