RPRangerZ is a 18+ Server
1. Teamspeak and Website Rules
If admins are on TS, please refrain from messaging them unless it's an emergency (tent despawners, dupers, hackers..). KOS or badRP reports are not the priority.
Please post your KOS and badRP reports on the website under Admin Help. Please allow for 36 hours to reply to them (often it will be quicker, but sometimes might go up to it).
We will constantly work on getting people whitelisted, so please check your applications for questions back. Please allow us 72 hours for a response to a whitelist application.
Do not take any matters to your own hands, if you have problems with any members, talk to an admin first. Don't go into TS channels to find out who killed you.
2. Out of Character Rules
No Racism/Sexism/Homophobia or offensive language.
Don't be disrespectful towards the community members.
Don't spam chats or TeamSpeak chat including pokes.
Push-to-talk (PTT) is a MUST on the teamspeak server.
English is the only language to be spoken or typed on the forums and teamspeak, exceptions for interjected spoken words for RP on the server.
3. Killing on Sight
Killing another player must always be justified by the role playing and the actions specified in this rule; there are several situations where you can kill another player:
You have to make contact with the target before initiating a hostile action against it. You must make your hostile intention clear and unambiguous and state each demand before you can harm the victim(s) for non-compliance.
You can take revenge for a hostile action taken against you for 2 hours from the time hostile action was taken, as long as it does not conflict with the other rules.
You gain KOS rights when being threatened by another player.
You may only share KoS rights when you meet both of the following conditions:
You are within 500 meters of the hostile situation at the time of occurrence
You were recently a part of the involved parties group and the other group has been made aware of your presence.
We do not accept 'Rule-Play' as an acceptable KOS rights in a role-play scenario, you must never use rules to your advantage that could possibly ruin the role-play for others.
Your hostile intentions must be clear to the victim(s) and you must list reasonable demands for your hostage.
When hostage you immediately gain KOS Rights and may use them up to 2 hours after line of sight is broken.
You must only use your KOS rights when appropriate, killing someone during a great role-play session is rule-play.
When someone aims a gun at you, you DO NOT gain KOS rights.
4. Ingame rules
No use of landmines, unpinned grenades inside of anything, beartraps, no poisoning food/drinks. This is classed as KoS.
De-spawning of tents and items of other people's camps is considered trolling and will not be tolerated. You may steal stuff, but do not pack up the tents and throwing contents on the ground in order to make them disappear.
Rape and sexual roleplay will result in a ban.
Don't spam side or radio chat with useless un-needed chatter that is not any use to RP.
Do not cheat, hack or glitch. Do not abuse the current bugs of the game. This includes loot glitching, glitching into rocks and buildings to gain an unfair advantage over other players.
If you catch or suspect someone cheating/glitching, do NOT post this publicly, but get in contact with an admin immediately providing all the proof necessary (e.g. recordings).
When Using Radio far from your friends even in Teamspeak you must be heard in game also.. make it seem realistic.
No blocking entrances with tents/barrels, no gltiching tents, no tents facing each other so you have to glitch in.
Once your character dies from an RP situation, execution, gunfight leading from RP situation you cannot go back to your dead body for atleast 90 minutes and within 1 km radius.
Your new character will have no knowledge of the events that lead to your old character's death in order to not seek revenge. Your new character has also no knowledge about people, groups and locations (of camps for example) - you have to find out everything from scratch. i.e. worst example: coming back as your character's brother into the same group and continuing as before.
Players who die from glitch can go back to their body and pickup anything left.
6. Power- and meta- gaming
Both of the following are disallowed.
Powergaming refers to forcing an action, condition or belief upon another player's character beyond what the games mechanics allow.
Do not force any permanent status effect on other characters without explicit permission. This includes forcing them to eat human meat, scarring them in a visible place, removing body parts or otherwise permanently harming them.
Metagaming is a broad term generally used to define any strategy, action or method used in a game which transcends a prescribed ruleset, uses external factors to affect the game or goes beyond the supposed limits or environment set by the game. Metagaming is when a player receives information that they otherwise should not have received in any reasonable role-play way.
Example of Metagaming
Taking informations from real life (watching stream) and using it in RP situation
Using or giving any information about your killer or location of your body after you are dead.
Using information posted on the forums, TeamSpeak, Stream or any other similar way to your advantage.
7. Combat logging
Do not combat log when you are getting initiated on or being held hostage or being in gunfight. You can logout after 30 minutes when event ends. If you need to leave use dirrect chat with prefix: //OOC and type something like this: //OOC guys, gotta go, I have a doctor meeting soon.
