Server rules

Postby Phaiz » March 1st, 2014, 4:22 pm

Server and forum rules apply to everyone including admins.

-=General Server and Forum Rules=-

1. Spam - Chat, mic and bind spam will result in a silence.

2. Respect - Show respect to other players as well as staff members. Do not argue with the admins.

3. Racism/Sexism/Religion etc - No racism will be tolerated even if it is not meant to be used as racism, including slang, and sprays. Derogatory language meant to insult a persons sexuality (such as "faggot") will not be tolerated. Any sexism will not be tolerated as well. Discussions involving religion are acceptable as long as it is not harmful.

4. Hacks/Glitches/Exploits - Cheating will result in a no warning permanent ban while map or gameplay exploits/glitches will be met with the standard ban duration.

5. Friendly Players - If the server is nearly full please play the game.

6. Trolls - Troll engineers as well as other troll classes will not be tolerated. We want you to have fun, but you still need to help your team. (This will be handled at the staffs discretion)

7. Staff Impersonation - Any attempt at impersonating a staff member is not allowed.
Example - having an Admin tag in your name

8. Sprays - Any spray that contains illegal, racist, harmful religious content, or is intended to damage Skiver will not be allowed. For example this is allowed but this is not

9. Voteabuse - Votebanning, kicking or silencing a player who is not breaking any rules may result in you being silenced

10. Reporter Abuse - Abusing the player reporting system can result in you being silenced

11. Threats - Any threats made towards individuals or our servers will be met with an instant and permanent ban. This includes "real-life threats" such as threatening to find out where someone lives in order to hurt them. This also includes any threats directed towards any of our servers (game servers and/or web servers) such as threatening to DDoS or DoS one or more of our servers. Other uses of this rule will be enforced when required.
------------------

Note: Rules can change at anytime and it is your responsibility to be aware of any changes to the above rules.
If any rule is unclear to you or if you simply have a question, please ask any staff member.

No one, myself included, is a fan of numerous rules when it comes to gaming however in order to remain as legitimate and transparent as possible we must have these in place

Added one rule specifically for Class Warfare -

-=TF2 Class Warfare Server Rules=-
All regular server rules apply as well as:
1. Spawn Camping - (This is specific to Red Engineers) Building sentries directly outside of the spawn room or in the trench (Dustbowl stage 2) as well as building sentries within sight of the spawn door (Dustbowl stage 3) is not allowed. Building anywhere else is allowed. Offenders will have their buildings destroyed if warnings are ignored, followed by further action if needed.

Original post edited to include specifics for Class Wars #2


2. Spawn Camping (ROTATION) - Sentries in general may not be able to target (without using a Wrangler) an enemy standing directly outside of their spawn (or setup area) exit/door. Building anywhere else is allowed. Offenders will have their buildings destroyed if warnings are ignored, followed by further action if needed.

Rule #8 has been updated

8. Backcapping - Waiting on the last capture point in order to cap as soon as the first point is taken is not allowed. Backcapping is allowed on all Class Wars servers.

Back capping is now allowed on both Class Wars servers, however it is still not allowed on regular servers.

We are making a few major changes to our server rules and as always it is your responsibility to be aware of all server rules.

The following rules are being removed:

5. Gate Exploits - Any form of harming people through the gates before the start of the round is not allowed. Any glitches used to block/trap people in spawn is not allowed.
Examples - jarate, fire and mad milk


8. Backcapping - Waiting on the last capture point in order to cap as soon as the first point is taken is not allowed. Backcapping is allowed on all Class Wars servers.


1. Spawn Camping - (This is specific to Red Engineers on Classwars) Building sentries directly outside of the spawn rooms, setup area gates, in the trench (Dustbowl stage 2) as well as building sentries inside of the Blu setup area (Dustbowl stage 3) is not allowed. Building anywhere else is allowed. Offenders will have their buildings destroyed if warnings are ignored, followed by further action if needed.


The following rules are being modified:


4. Hacks/Glitches/Exploits - Any use of hacks will result in a permanent ban from our servers. Glitches/Exploit are not allowed and will result in a ban.

changed to

4. Hacks/Glitches/Exploits - Cheating will result in a no warning permanent ban while map or gameplay exploits/glitches will be met with the standard ban duration.

---

6. Friendly Players -Being a friendly player or goofing off before and after a round is acceptable. During the round it will be tolerated briefly.
Examples - sandvich heavy and friendly parties

changed to

5. Friendly Players - If the server is nearly full please play the game.

---

8. Sprays - Any spray that contains illegal content, racist content, "descriptive" porn*, harmful religious content or is intended to damage Skiver will not be allowed.**

changed to

8. Sprays - Any spray that contains illegal, racist, harmful religious content, or is intended to damage Skiver will not be allowed. For example this is allowed but this is not



----

Jarate, fire etc through the setup gates are simply part of the game. It's incredibly difficult to figure out who did it to begin with unless you're already spectating. If you don't like piss on your boots during setup don't stand against the gate.

Backcapping is a legitimate strategy and we've enforced this rule long enough. You can prevent backcaps by being prepared.

With the addition of a surrender option on Class Wars with /cwsurrender there's no real reason to hold back red engineers.

Last but not least - porn sprays. It's your responsibility to be aware of what your spray is. If it contains something illegal such as underage porn (this includes drawings such as "Loli") you will never connect to a Skiver server again. Adult nudity is allowed and if you don't want to see it or don't want your kids to see it you can disable sprays in game
