RULES

Last updated: 10-07-2019 by ApexNetwork

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!

Service Agreement

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.

Section A - General Behaviour

1 | Members must always adhere to behaving with respect between one another. This includes but is not limited to; bullying, harassment, provocation, insulting, prejudice and discrimination. (48hr Ban)

2 | Do not disturb the function of any Communal Areas. Examples of this include; microphone spamming, text spamming, item spamming and advertising. (12hr Ban)

3 | Pornographic content or anything else considered NSFW is strictly prohibited from all Communal Areas. (Permanent Ban)

4 | Cheating, exploiting mechanics, stream-sniping, using 3rd party software or otherwise deriving benefit from any currently known, or unknown imperfections or glitches, on any of our service platforms is strictly against the rules. (Permanent Ban)

5 | Do not impersonate a Member of Staff internally or externally of the Community. (48hr Ban)

6 | Senior Staff reserve the right to expel any Community Member for any reason deemed necessary that are not distinctively specified within the rules.

7 | Breaching / avoiding bans using alt accounts or other methods can result in a perm ban and admins reserve the right to ban any / all linked accounts.

Section B - 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 rocket glitches. You have been warned.

Trader Rules

It is recommended that all players use the Static Markers option available within their in-game Map Interface for a live visual aid for distance to Traders.

The use of the Duct Tape repairing glitch is against the rules and is a banable offense.

1.1 | Building of any type, including placement of storage items to be used as ‘stashes’, gardens and plants, is prohibited within 700m of any Trader. (24hr Ban)

1.2 | When leaving or entering any Trader area you may not engage or otherwise attack any player until you are beyond a 600m radius of the Trader.(48hr Ban & Strip)

1.3 |You may not engage with or otherwise attack any player that is themselves within 600m radius of any Trader. (48hr Ban & Strip)

1.4 | It is against server ruling to ask, tempt, or otherwise convince any player to leave a Trader Area with the intention of engaging or attacking them. (48hr Ban & Strip)

1.5 | At all times remain conscious and aware of the effects your actions have on the frame rate of highly populated areas. For example; do not spam sources of particle effects such as lights and fires. (12hr Ban)

1.6 | Do not leave items or vehicles unattended within the confines of a Trader. (Item Deletion)

1.7 | Taking anything that does not belong to you or scamming someone during a trade within the confines of a Trader, is forbidden, even as a ‘joke’. (24hr Ban & Strip)

Base Rules

The classification of a Base is; any secure structure, natural or built, with at least one form of locking mechanism on any entrance or exit.

2.1 | Military Zones such as North West Airfield, Zelenegorsk Barracks, Tisy, Stary Military, Balota, Myskino and Pavlovo are prohibited from Base building. This includes the use of any building mechanics to block paths of other players. (24hr Ban & Deletion)

2.2 | Exploiting game mechanics to be used in a way that is not intended to unfairly gain access to a Base is strictly forbidden. (48hr Ban & Strip)

2.3 | Gaining access to a base by prop climbing, unrealistically player boosting or any form of unrealistic means including glitching through walls, windows and doors is strictly against the rules.(48hr & strip)

2.4 | If access is gained to another players Base, you may not Log Off or otherwise disconnect within the confines of the structure. An exemption to this rule, is if all locking mechanisms within the Base are replaced with your own. (24hr Ban)

Combat Rules

This is a Player Versus Player server with no rules against Kill On Sight. However, we welcome and encourage players to explore other avenues, such as Role Play, Hostage Situations and Sieges.

The definition of Combat Logging is; Logging Off or otherwise disconnecting from the server to avoid engagement, death or other form of hostility.

3.1 | It is against the rules to Combat Log within 15 minutes of being hit or taking fire in your general direction. (24hr Ban)

3.2 | You must wait 15 minutes before Combat Logging since you last engaged with, or otherwise attack any other player. (24hr Ban)

3.3 | Entering the Trader Area no-engagement radius, as defined within 2.2 & 2.3, inside 5 minutes of either; last engaging, or last being engaged by another player, is not allowed. (24hr Ban)

Section C – Forums

Throughout the Website & Forums there are several tools available to support Members. Please ensure that you are using these and properly reading the instructions on how to use each one before posting. Avoid messaging Staff directly about these subjects and remember that these services are not instant and may take some time to resolve. As we get a high number of requests, so your patience is highly appreciated.

Section D – Discord

Much like the website, Discord is host to several Tools that are designed to assist Staff in supporting Members as efficiently as possible. We promise that these are far quicker ways of getting an issue resolved, rather than contacting a Member of Staff directly.

If you have a question about the game, or otherwise something in general you’d like to know, our incredibly knowledgeable Community will likely know much more than we will!

  • Use the ‘Help’ tab in Discord.
  • The answer you are looking for may already be in the ‘FAQ’ channel so try looking there first.
  • Otherwise visit the ‘help’ channel and someone will surely know the answer!

If you find yourself in need of assistance from a Member of Staff;

  • First locate the ‘Admin Support’ tab on discord.
  • Thoroughly read the ‘Read-me’.
  • Enter ‘Request-an-admin’ and upload your ticket.
  • Please continue with your day and wait patiently until we get to your ticket. We know you are waiting.

1 | Do not post links to any external websites or other Discords, with the exception of a webpage from MyloTheAverageSniper.com. (24hr Ban)

2 | Do not invite any bots. (24hr Ban & Removal)

3 | Do not post animated pictures into any channel. With the exception of your own Private Clan Chat. (24hr Ban & Removal)

Thank you and have fun!

Much love from,

Mylo and the rest of the Team.
