Game Affairs Rules Clarification



Introduction

In the following thread you will find all the new rules that have been added, adjusted and removed. We have listened to your feedback, therefore we have decided to work towards a more free-gameplay for you players! We encourage each player to go through the rules once again in order to be up-to-date with our recent rule changes. Just because something is not specifically mentioned in the rules does not mean it's allowed. If your actions harm others, the community, or gameplay in general you can be punished at the discretion of an administrator. We expect you to use common sense. Bear in mind that all other rules that are not mentioned here are still in effect.



Faction rule changes
  • Factions can now Revenge-Kill during AEC, Drug Den and Chemicals Lab mission​
  • Only FBI and Army members are allowed to confiscate methamphetamine from a players inventory. LSPD can confiscate any drugs including methamphetamine as long as they have seen usage of drugs, breath-tested and proved to have used drugs, or if the player's radio has been used to coordinate a crime​
  • Law Enforcement are not allowed to taze/arrest non-criminal(not-wanted) players inside safe-zones, such as, however not limited to Casino, Black Market, Christmas event​
  • Incase of not wearing a badge during turf or gang war the player will be warned on his first offense, fined $10,000 the second and prisoned the third(in-game) (However, during forum complaints it falls under admin discretion to either punish or warn the player depending on the severity of the case and impact it had, i.e intentionally not wearing a badge). Bear in mind that this rule mostly applies in-game and it falls all under Admin discretion to decide whether a warning or punishment is more reasonable​
  • If a suspect fails to comply and attempts to evade law enforcement with a gun in his/her hand, the suspect is considered a high-threat (Law enforcement may shoot on sight), however if the suspect does NOT posses and/or doesn't have a gun in his hand he must be caught and tazed, using proper force matrix

Prison (60-120 minutes) and/or Removal from faction/ gang



Gang rule changes

  • Gang members may not enter a safe zone if they are actively chased from law enforcement or are wanted​
  • Gang vandalization rule update - there is currently no member limit​
  • Incase of not wearing a bandana during turf or gang war the player will be warned on his first offense, fined $10,000 the second and prisoned the third (However, during forum complaints it falls under admin discretion to either punish or warn the player, i.e not wearing the bandana intentionally). Bear in mind that this rule mostly applies in-game and it falls all under Admin discretion to decide whether a warning or punishment is more reasonable​
  • Sub gang rule - two allied gangs may not send each-other members for turfs or missions, this will be considered mass-recruiting​
Prison (60-240 minutes) and/or Leadership Ban


Crate Island rules

  • Only factions and gangs may attend crate with the intent of capturing the crate​
  • You are considered attending crate island if you enter the island's proximity or participating gangs headquarters by ground, air, or sea, and/or you assist/fight the gang/faction protecting/stealing the crate.​
  • Revenge killing is allowed during participation in crate island, whether its in island's proximity or participating gangs headquarters​
  • Crate island is a kill-on-sight zone​
  • Participating gangs headquarters is a kill-on-sight zone, however gang members and factions MUST have their badges and bandanas on (you may not shoot civilians)​
  • Shooting can continue after the crate island is delivered, however, only at the delivery point(HQ). Furthermore, after crate has been delivered, revenge-kill rule applies.​
  • Gangs are allowed to team up against law enforcement​
  • Factions are not allowed to team up with gangs under any circumstances​
  • Factions may not reach any agreements regarding crate with gangs, whoever claims it wins it. However gangs can form alliances with each-other​
  • Gangs and Factions must have their bandanas, skins and badges on at all times​
  • You are not allowed to use your tazer and/or rubber bullets during Crate Island​
  • Factions are allowed to hijack the boat/helicopter/car carrying the crate​
  • Crate must stay within reach under all circumstances. (i.e no lands can be used to hide the crate)

Prison (60-120 minutes) and/or Removal from faction/ gang



Turf rules update


  • Gangs can now drive-by during an active turf as long as there is a driver. Members must get out of the vehicle if there is no current driver driving the vehicle
  • Gang/faction members can ONLY snipe outside boundaries even without members inside as long as they have the capture
  • Gangs can snipe outside boundaries if ally members are inside boundaries
  • Bombing is now allowed outside and inside interiors, however car/plane bombing is not
  • You are allowed to camp outside turfs to kill rival gang members
  • Ramming in turfs now falls under “excessive ramming” general rule meaning you cannot ram a player/capper more than three times, meaning once is acceptable
  • Gang members that were invited after XX:45 time cannot participate in turfs
In case of any rule-break Prison (60-240 minutes) and/or Removal from faction/ gang


Alliances

All gangs can ally with whomever they desire for turfs/crate or bandana wars at your own risk. However, Gang Management/Game Affairs team reserve the right to prohibit/break an alliance if it's not in alignment with the server's vision. (i.e destructive alliances to the gang scene/no competition whatsoever)

  • Everything will remain in character, everyone can team with anyone, it's time for you to run the show
  • Game Affairs will disband any gang whose members get excessively banned, this decision will be made by management and could be done at any time without any warnings in advance, therefore you're expected to think wisely before recruiting strangers
