Server Rules

Server Rules

Player Names

Your in-game name is yours and yours alone. To ensure we are all on the same page, in-game player names may not contain any of the below mentioned examples:

  1. Abusive or derogatory terms, that is targeted towards a specific player.
  2. Slurs or profanity of any sort.
  3. Impersonation of another player (even mock type names).
  4. Inappropriate names (Hitler, SS Soldier etc).
  5. Obscure characters that are difficult to see in-game.


Game Chat & Voice Chat

In-game text chat & voice chat is an easy place to upset someone if they're not on the same page as you. As such, the following is forbidden on our server:

  1. Excessive Insulting & Swearing
  2. Racism
  3. Spamming
  4. Recruiting or advertising (unless arranged prior)
  5. Hackusations.
  6. Weapon Insulting.

1. Excessive insulting & Swearing:
Usage of slurs, slang or otherwise derogatory comments directed at players & usage of profanities.


2. Racism:
Any prejudice, discrimination or antagonism displayed by a player against a player with regard to their race, religion, orientation etc.


3. Spamming:
Repeating the same message multiple times, either via the text-chat itself or the in-game radio commands.


4. Recruiting or advertising:
Any form of marketing other communities, platforms, services etc. Attempting to poach HelloClan members for one's own community.


5. Hackusations:
Accusing other players of using in-game hacks that allow an unfair advantage.


6. Weapon Insulting:
Any comment with regard to a player's choice in weapons that is in a negative light. Utterances like "noob" is allowed until it becomes excessive.

All of these offenses are of the same nature. Thus, if someone shoots a friendly vehicle and gets kicked, then comes back to teamkill they will be banned. This applies only if the intent was malevolent in nature. As is to be expected though, admin discretion will be used in all circumstances. An Admin may warn the user if they choose to, but it is not mandatory.

1. The player will be kicked as soon as the offense is committed.

2. Should the player keep it up after they have been kicked, they will be banned for a minimum of 24hrs. If they are a repeat offender, their ban time may be adjusted accordingly.



Game Based Offences

To ensure that all our players have a fair and fun time, we encourage a certain degree of cordiality. As such, the following is not allowed on our server:

  1. Disruptive play (see more info below)
  2. Team-killing
  3. Shooting friendly vehicles
  4. Glitching or hacking
  5. Excessive team-switching

1. Disruptive play:
  1. Putting your team at a distinct disadvantage by taking vehicles, but not using them to fight.
  2. Taking a vehicle as one team and deliberately giving it to the other team.
  3. Any other form of gameplay that causes chaos for the rest of the players.


2. Team-killing:
  1. Blowing up a vehicle with a teammate nearby.
  2. Deliberately crashing a vehicle with a teammate inside.
  3. Deliberately crashing a vehicle into a teammate.
  4. Actually shooting a teammate.


3. Shooting friendly vehicles:
Shooting a vehicle belonging to your team for any reason other than preventing an enemy who is about to get it/to re-spawn it as it is damaged and can't easily be repaired/killing the enemy near or in it.


4. Glitching or Hacking:
  1. Any glitches in a map that give a player an unfair advantage, usually by providing them a way to kill players without the players they target being able to shoot back, are classed as glitching.

  2. Shooting through walls, being in walls and under floors are all considered glitching. Mortar jumping is not classed as a glitch as the player has no real unfair advantage.

  3. Hacks specifically designed to give a player wholly unfair advantages. As in - don't hack!


5. Excessive team-switching:
The ability to team-switch is a great thing to have in game. However, it can be used malevolently. It can also indirectly cause unnecessary frustration to other players who are trying to stay on their own team but are thrown back and forth due to other players switching in an excessive manner. If you are auto switched, please try stay on the team you are sent to, we'd like to keep the team's as balanced as possible.

All of these offenses are of the same nature. Thus, if someone shoots a friendly vehicle and gets kicked, then comes back to main rape they will be banned. This applies only if the intent was malevolent in nature. As is to be expected though, admin discretion will be used in all circumstances. An Admin may warn the user if they choose to, but it is not mandatory.

1. The player will be kicked as soon as the offense is committed.

2. Should the player keep it up after they have been kicked, they will be banned for a minimum of 24hrs. If they are a repeat offender, their ban time may be adjusted accordingly.



AFK​

If you need to step away from your PC for a few moments, we recommend that you got to spectator mode (bear in mind you will loose your score) until you return. If you are AFK and not in spectator mode, the following will happen;

  1. The player will be asked if they are playing. This will be through game announcement's chat or in-game as a player, both count as sufficient warning. Should they respond, nothing further will happen.

  2. Should the player not respond after being given a sufficient amount of time, the player will be kicked.


Additional notes​

There are a few more extra things to cover in order to be thorough, if you wish to see these please click on the spoiler below. It covers bans & ban topics, ban evasion, admin discretion and a disclaimer that all the above is an example.

Ban's & Ban Topics:

An Admin must make a ban topic, irrespective of banishment period, in the Ban List forum (viewable here) within 24 hours of the ban being made. These must also contain the relevant evidence needed.



Ban evasion:

Should a player be banned and they attempt to circumvent their ban by making use of dubious methods, they will find any and all their new info banned along with an extended to near permanent ban from our server.



Admin discretion:

As mentioned in the above topic, Admins have the sole right to use their discretion when dealing with rule breakers. They are entitled to apply just punishment should the need arise. Should there be any unfair treatment, you may discretely report an Admin here: https://www.helloclan.eu/staff/report



The above is just an example:

The above mentioned rules and examples thereof serve merely as a guideline for all players to know what is mainly do and do not. There exists a line between the rules and this is the reason the Admins reserve the right to use their discretion when they come across a player attempting to blur the lines between right and wrong.
