Helpful links: Questions and Answers - Compensation Requests

Thank you for your interest in joining our Community!

We aim to provide a fun, engaging and fair environment for everyone who wants to join in on the excitement within the increasingly popular ‘MTAS’ PvP Servers.

In order to help us maintain that environment as our Community grows, we have had to establish a few rules to keep a friendly, welcoming culture and level playing field for every single one of our Members.

We understand how enthusiastic you must be to jump right in and get started, but it’s important that you understand the Rules before exploding faces.

Below you will find what we consider our bible; it’s a quick 5-minute read, and should you have any questions, feel free to ask anyone!

By joining any MTAS Communal Area (Game Server, Forum or Discord), you are confirming that you have read, understood and agreed to abide by the rules within. Failure to do so will result in disciplinary action being taken.

The penalties related to each rule breach are in brackets. However, these are recommended guidelines only and may be decreased or increased by the reviewing Member of Staff based on the severity of the breach.

Multiple offences carry stacked consequences. Likewise; repeat offenders will receive harsher penalties.

When creating a compensation request or report, evidence must be at most 7 days old unless it provides evidence to a more recent situation. (Ban appeals are exempt from this situation).

Game Servers

We advocate the use of recording software whilst in game. So that it may be called upon as evidence when reviewing a potential rule breach.

It is also worth noting that we encourage the use to ‘TimeStamping’ when possible rule breaches occur within game by typing “TS/TimeStamp – [Suspected Rule Break]” using the in game text chat feature

Something to keep in mind is that admins have no obligation to compensate for vehicle glitches, vehicles are used at your own expense and will not be compensated for. You have been warned.
