You cannot put any trap/sentry on an extension of your vehicle and use it to kill people inside of bases/objects/etc. Sentry guns cannot be within shooting distance from any map spawn point.
    • 1.12 Bases that block off an entire town/map area/point or are simply too large and causing lag are subject to player punishment and structure removal.

    • 1.14 All rules are enforced according to our staff members' discretion. The punishment will be dependent on the staff member and the severity of the offense.
    • 1.15 Just because the rule you broke is not listed exactly, does not mean you cannot be banned for it. Refer to rule 1.0 - Use Common Sense.
    • 1.16 The use of alternate accounts to get around bans/mutes is not allowed and is strictly enforced. Common excuses like "it was my brother" will not work.

    • 3.0 If a staff member is on duty, they are doing administrative or moderating work and therefore are not playing the game.

    • 3.3 Staff members are not allowed to go on duty just to heal themselves as a result of PvP injuries, even if they have a call to attend at that given moment. There are very few and rare exceptions to this rule, based on discretion and common sense.
    • 3.4 Staff members are not allowed to heal or teleport themselves or their friends in order to gain any sort of advantage during gameplay.
    • 3.5 Note: All moderators that are off duty do not have absolutely any commands whatsoever besides regular, server-wide commands. Off-duty moderators are alike all other players and shall be treated that way.
