No Run and Gun:
Clarification: You may walk upright, crouch or move in prone. No continuous or repeated sprinting.
Sprinting is allowed for these reasons:[/color]
- If under fire
- Avoiding a grenade (vehicle etc)
- Across a short distance to revive a teammate
- To traverse a known sniper lane (i.e. across a road or small gap between buildings...not across an entire field)
No Profanity or Vulgarity:
Clarification: Repeated swearing or use of sexual or racial slurs will result in a permanent ban.
Clarification: The use of cheats such as bunny hopping, pee-pee dancing, wall hacks, map glitches and aim-bots are prohibited.
- "Bunny Hopping" describes any jumping that you wouldn't see in real-world combat.
- "Pee-Pee Dancing" is when a player moves left right, left right to avoid being fired at.
- "Wall hacks and map glitches" describe unintentional mistakes of the developers that allow a person to shoot though other objects without being seen.
- "Aim-bots and Hacks" modify the game client to give a player an unfair advantage.
Play the Game Type:
Clarification: Play with a goal of progressing your team toward victory within the game type. If you don't know how, ask.
Do not spawn camp an Un-Capturable Base:
Clarification: The Un-Capturable main Base (UCB) is intended to be the point of reinforcements for each team and is out of bounds (OOB) for the opposing team.
Explanation: While it may be realistic, it isn't fun.
Don't Set Explosives Near Objectives:
Clarification: Do not plant an explosive on a stationary object close enough to injure someone at the objective. You can place it on the tank the soon-to-be injured person is in, but not on the ground near the objective.
Explanation: In real life you would worry about killing your team members more by placing explosives on a target they may trip. Not only is it cheap, but likely to kill your team members also.
Do Not Kill Teammates:
Clarification: Intentionally killing teammates for any reason is prohibited. if for some reason you accidentally killed a teammate, you must type a formal apology. For example: sorry for the tk John Doe
No Blind Grenade/Rocket/M320 Spamming
Clarification: Do not fire a Grenade/Rocket/M320 without first seeing an intended target.
Explanation: In real-world combat the use of grenades and launchers would only be used if there was a confirmed target to avoid friendly fire.
Additional Information for Non-Members:
LOol Clan has an active and involved administrative staff. When a problem is encountered in game, teamspeak, or the forums, there are multiple ways to contact an administrator for assistance.
in-game text: admin John Doe is sprinting.
Team Speak: say admin: John Doe is sprinting.
This may not result in immediate action, but will make sure we are monitoring them closer.[/color]
