Battlefield 4 Server Rules These rules apply to all of our BF4 servers. Our admins operate on a point system. When you are found violating a rule, you'll be given a punish point by an admin. The first point will be a warning. After that you'll have varying levels of punishment from a kill, kick, and eventual ban if you're a constant problem. All admin actions are logged, and many are also recorded by the punishing admin. Do not expect to get a different answer about a situation from a different admin. If you have a problem with an action taken by an admin you're welcome to post here in our forums as all admins can review each other's actions. We are not perfect and mistakes do happen. Hacking/cheating will result in an instant permanent ban regardless of previous infractions or the lack thereof. We have a zero-tolerance policy against hacking and all accounts linked to an account determined to have been hacking. We use multiple methods to confirm hacking and do not ban based on suspicion alone. 1: GRIEFING / TEAMKILLING IS NOT TOLERATED! No team killing, period, end of story. Retribution team killing is not allowed and is a punishable offense. Griefing: Purposefully shooting or otherwise sabotaging your teammates in an online game. Griefing includes stealing of friendly vehicles while they are repairing (for example). Excessive jet ramming can be considered griefing. Forcing a TK is griefing. 2: ABUSE OF IN-GAME CHAT! This includes but is not limited to: "troll" like behavior, especially when inciting conflict based on race, religion, or politics, repeatedly sending the same message ad nauseam in game; sending messages viewed as "spam"; advertising other servers or recruiting for other clans; flagrant use of slurs generally observed to be offensive to a group, ethnicity, gender, or otherwise; and the use of macros to type things into the in game chat box. 3: DISRESPECTING AN ADMIN! Got a problem with an admin's actions? Handle it in a mature fashion. Calling names at admins is a quick way to get a punish point from them. Our admins are reasonable people. 4: DISRESPECTING BANZORE! Got a problem with BanZore? Keep it to yourself or post in our forums. Again, we're reasonable people and would love to have a conversation with you. 5: RECRUITING FOR OTHER CLANS/SERVERS IS NOT ALLOWED! This includes inviting players into your TeamSpeak/Discord/Website/etc. 6: DO NOT USE EXCESSIVE HACKUSATIONS. USE !REPORT <PLAYER> <REASON> TO NOTIFY OUR ADMINS! It gets old, really. Get some proof and bring it to us. If they're hacking we'd love to ban them just as much as you. We do not and will not ban legitimate players regardless of how much you whine. 7: GLITCHING WILL NOT BE TOLERATED! Exploits will earn you a punish point. 8: HACKING WILL NOT BE TOLERATED! 9. STAT PADDING EX: MORTAR/UCAV FROM UNCAP Stat padding is the act of receiving undeserved points due to abnormal and unhelpful gameplay. NEW: EOD bots are not allowed on our Metro/Locker/Pearl server. They can basically only be used in a way considered to be stat padding and having one in your loadout will cause you to be auto-killed by the server. You may not fire into the enemy's uncap. You may return fire to an enemy firing on you from uncap. This includes but is not limited to the following: UCAV/SUAV from uncap Mortar from uncap AA from uncap RAWR from uncap MAV from uncap EOD bot from uncap (BANNED FROM SERVERS) Rocket truck from uncap In the case of gadgets above, eg. mortar, the gadget AND the player must be outside of uncap. In general, don't be a trouble maker in the server. The above rules what will usually be cited in punishes/kicks/bans but other reasons may be used if you're an exceptionally problematic player disrupting gameplay. Notable items: Jihad jeeps (C4 jeeps) are allowed Stealing vehicles from the enemy uncap is allowed, however while doing so you're not allowed to defend yourself so long as you're in their uncap. Making false reports will earn you a punish point. Sniping from uncap is allowed, but very stupid and you're definitely not helping your team. If you fire from uncap, you're fair game for the enemy to return fire. Players may chase you back to uncap, but they cannot enter into uncap! They can kill you once you have left it or fired (mainly applies to aircraft). In an all-cap situation, mortaring or using other gadgets from uncap is OK - though you should probably get in the fight and help your team cap a flag.
