    Killing other players without a reason (Deathmatch)

    Deathmatching is the act of attacking other players without a realistic in-character reason such as out of character conflicts and disputes. For example:

    • You cannot order someone to move away from a place that you do not own
    • You are not allowed to pay a player to let him kill another player, and you are not allowed to be paid to kill another player
    • You are not allowed to kill a player twice for the same reason
    • You may not attack over conflicts that occur on public channels such as the global chat, old-schools chat, /newb, etc.
    • You may not attack a player for refusing to leave a public place (i.e. paintball, mall, etc.) However, you may attack them if they refuse to leave a private property that you own such as a house, dynamic door, land, or a gang HQ
    • You may not attack a player by causing a car accident with the intention of killing the other driver involved, or purposely by getting yourself rammed, you can only kill a player for ramming if he purposely rams you on a sidewalk, the opposite side of the road where it shouldn't be, or simply anywhere where a car realistically shouldn't be
    • You are not allowed to pay a player to let him kill another player, and you are not allowed to be paid to kill another player
    ◦ You may contract them as it is the only legitimate method to get another person killed by paying
    • Killing over gambling
    ◦ Whether you lost or not, you may not attack a player for winning a dice-bet against you
    • Killing over drugs
    ◦ You may not attack someone for taking the drugs from the drug labs while you are smuggling drugs, such labs are not owned by players
    • Killing over spam
    ◦ You may not attack a player for spamming. However, if they've been asked to stop, and they have continued, you may attack them.
    • Killing over server vehicles or job vehicles
    ◦ You may not attack any player for using the server or job vehicles, regardless of whether you've just delivered it (job vehicle,) whoever enters the vehicle first is considered as the temporary owner of the vehicle and may not be killed for it until the delivery is over, however, you may attack whoever hijacks you out of such vehicles
    • Killing most wanted players
    ◦ You may not attack a most wanted player unless you are a law enforcement officer, or you have an in-character reason to attack that said player
    • Defending/Aiding friends
    ◦ You may defend your friends, and assist them during any scenarios, however, gangs are not allowed to aid factions and vice-versa

    Policies above are basic examples of the most common scenarios we go through daily. Just because examples of other situations are not written that does not mean they are not punishable. If your actions harm the gameplay of another player, you can be punished at the discretion of an administrator.


    Weapon Restriction for 2 hours Prison (30 minutes) + Weapon Restriction for 4 hours Prison (60 minutes) + Weapon Restriction for 6 hours Prison (90 minutes) + Weapon Restriction for 8 hours Prison (120 minutes) + Weapon Restriction for 10 hours + 50% fine of total wealth Ban (1 Month)

    Deathmatch warnings automatically expire and are not reset after unbans.

    Carry out any reasons to kill other players within 10 minutes (10-minute rule)

    You have 10 minutes only to kill a player if they have wronged you. For example, if a player has insulted you via SMS, you have 10 minutes to kill him or afterwards, it counts as deathmatch. The 10 minutes can be extended if you are actively chasing a player


    Killing another player for killing you (Revenge-killing)

    This is when you take revenge and attack another player who has recently killed you. This is often abbreviated as "RK." If you are in a faction or a gang, you can not return to a scene where you have died to assault your killer(s). The only exception to this rule is gang wars (gang war still apply,) turf wars, crate island and bank robberies where you can return and participate as many times as you like.

    You will be punished according to the deathmatch punishments.

    Plane bombing, heliblading, excessive vehicle ramming or ninja jacking

    This is when you use an aircraft such as a plane or helicopter as a weapon to damage/kill other players or intentionally ninja-jack them. Excessive vehicle ramming is when you use your vehicle (for example, a car or bike) to hit another player to paralyze, damage, or kill them. The only exception to this rule is if there is a roleplay reason (i.e. police chase).

    Prison (60-120 minutes)

    Mixing out-of-character matters with in-character matters (Metagaming)

    Metagaming is the act of mixing out-of-character information with in-character information and having it influence your in-character decisions and actions. Examples:

    • Talking in the in-character chat about anything out-of-character or in a different language, that's what the "/b" command is for
    • Killing someone for insulting you over OOC chats such as the global chat, family chat, or the "/b" chat
    • Calling for backup via Discord or any OOC methods while being restrained and unable to use /backup

    Policies above are basic examples of the most common scenarios we go through on a daily basis. Just because examples of other situations are not written that doesn't mean they are not punishable.
    If your actions harm the game play of another player, you can be punished at the discretion of an administrator.

    Fine ($1000) Prison (5 minutes) Prison (15 minutes) Prison (30 minutes)

    Roleplaying unnatural situations or unrealistic actions (Powergaming)

    Powergaming is the act of roleplaying unnatural situations or committing unrealistic actions, forcing roleplay on people without giving them a chance to affect the outcome, making up things that did not happen in order to influence others, and roleplaying things that are not possible in order to gain an unfair advantage. Examples:

    • James grabs a bus and slams it on Joe's head
    • Walter kicks Sam in the balls, causing him to instantly die
    • Roleplaying that you do not have items which were found on you when you were frisked

    Policies above are basic examples of the most common scenarios we go through daily. Just because examples of other situations are not written that doesn't mean they are not punishable.
    If your actions harm the gameplay of another player, you can be punished at the discretion of an administrator.

    Fine ($1000) Prison (5 minutes) Prison (15 minutes) Prison (30 minutes)

    Selling Lawless Roleplay assets for profit

    Common Sense

    All rules are designed to make sure gameplay is as enjoyable as it can be for all players. Just because something is not specifically mentioned in the rules does not mean it's allowed. If your actions harm others, the server, or the gameplay in general you can be punished at the discretion of an administrator. We expect you to use common sense!


    Faction Rules

    Out-of-Character & In-Character Corruption

    Corruption is when any faction member abuses their faction given commands, equipment or access to commit actions that are not within the faction's role in the server. This includes the use of faction-issued weapons while off-duty. The FBI is allowed to use their equipment while off-duty for undercover purposes only, but must wear their official uniform and badge shown when responding to a backup call.
    Some examples of out-of-character corruption:

    • A law enforcement officer using /detain to kidnap a player
    • A hitman agent using his knife for fights not related to a contract

    Prison (45-90 minutes) and/or Removal from faction

    If you have been a victim of in-character corruption that does not break the out-of-character corruption rules, you can fill in an IA complaint against the faction member here

    Some examples of In-Character corruption:

    • Turning a blind eye to crime
    • Accepting a bribe in order to release their own suspect

    • These vehicles must only be used for faction roleplay or regular duty only

    Prison (60 minutes) and/or Removal from faction

    Backup & Revenge Killing

    Law enforcement officers may not return to situations where they have died, even if a fellow law enforcement officer has requested backup. This rule doesn't apply to turf wars, bank robberies, crate island, or faction headquarters, where then they are permitted to return, however, if they return to the same location without one of these specific things happening and assault their killer(s), it will be considered revenge-killing.

    You will be punished according to the deathmatch punishments.

    Charge-Stacking

    Charge stacking is when a law enforcement officer presses the same charge against a player several times. For example, a player is wanted for reckless driving and another officer gives them a wanted level for reckless driving again. It is the responsibility of said law enforcement officer to make sure they are not charge-stacking (they can check a player's existing charges by using the MDC's civilian record check). Charge-stacking includes charging for offences that are inexistent in addition to pressing different charges that bear the same meaning.

    Prison (60 minutes) and/or Removal from faction

    Prison (45-60 minutes) and/or Removal from faction

    Leadership Behaviour

    No leader-flag holders are allowed to invite ineligible players (such as faction banned players), or those who wish to join the respective faction with malicious and/or destructive plans (if the inviter knows beforehand.) Additionally, leaders and leader-flag holders are expected to have the utmost behaviour and to be role models for all other faction members. Moreover, leaders are not allowed to mislead their faction members into breaking any sort of server-wide rules.
