Racism & excessive Insulting will not be tolerated
This is probably our main rule on -[HELLO]-Bfv | Allmaps, and is not to be interpreted wrongly. While cussing, swearing, having controversial discussions and using controversial nicknames is allowed to a certain point, the line is crossed when someone is offended. So, what is offensive? This is one of the biggest issues we have in the community perception of ban reports. Obviously, people have different opinions and views on certain matters. So to clarify, something is offensive when someone is offended, even if the offender doesn't think it is. The least we can do then is to ask of him to stop bothering the person in question. Moving on from what's generally offensive, to insulting. We ask you not to insult people in a offensive manner based on race, color, religion, gender, national origin/ethnicity, disability status, age, sexual orientation, mental or physical disability or any other status that might really offend a person.
No chat spamming
A simple rule, which is hardly ever a problem - but is still important enough to make it into the server rules. We'll only take action with this rule if the player really is disrupting the chat system for others either with their chat or the in-game radio commands.
Use common sense
Use common sense, and don't try to find ways around the rules. Just because there's a list of rules, it doesn't mean that we'll never make any exceptions, the admins have permission to evaluate situations individually and ban on those grounds. This rule covers things like hacking/glitching/using anything that gives an unfair advantage, teamkilling, excessive team-switching, being AFK in the server and using multiple keys. If you do find yourself in the grey area on one of the rules, don't expect the admin to sit by and wait for you to cross the line with the rulebook open in another window. The bans will always be posted on the website to get the chance to be evaluated by the community.
Recruiting and ramming are allowed
By using all of the maps in BFV, and being the biggest server in the game - we strive to make the server as easy to play on as possible so we allow clans to recruit members here and players can ram into other vehicles.
Air main rape is only allowed on last flag
In order to promote a fun environment we don't allow air units to attack the opposing team's main base unless the opposing team has no other flags. (neutral flags don't count as a team's flag). The specifics for each map are as follows:
Operation Flaming Dart - The rule doesn't apply here as the flags have no effect on mains for either side.
Fall of Lang Vei - If the team has more than 1 flag main rape is prohibited. (Both the huey slick and mi-8 cargo are exempt)
Hue 1968- No helis/planes so the rule does not apply.
Ho chi minh trail - No helis/planes so the rule does not apply.
Saigon 68 - If the team has another above ground flag main rape may not take place. (Village/Bridge House/ Palace)(The Huey slick is exempt)
Quang tri 1968 - No helis/planes so the rule does not apply.
Fall of Saigon - Main rape is allowed as the plane is not much of a threat.

We follow a warn, kick, ban system
If it is believed that you are breaking the rules you will be warned before being kicked and then banned should you keep up the rule breaking. If you are banned, you'll find your ban topic on our Ban List
. All admins are obligated to Warn the player disrupting the gameplay/chat or breaking a rule before he can kick. If the player comes back and continues doing what he got kicked for, the admin can ban the player. Bans, regardless of length, will be found in the Ban List forum within a few hours of them being placed. If you feel your ban was wrong then you can Appeal It
. In the unfortunate event that no admins are online when rulebreaking takes place you can report it here
For more specific information on reporting players, and the punishments that get applied, read our topic on Player Reports & Repeat Offenders
. For specifics on what warnings you'll get for the various rules, how long they last and what we class as rule breaking, check out our Admin Courses of Action
You can report an admin, if needed, in our confidential Report An Admin
