BASIC GAME RULES
CAN VARY FROM EVENT to EVENT

BEHAVIOUR:
WE OPERATE A ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY ON OUR SITES. POOR CONDUCT, CHEATING OR ANY ACT OF VIOLENT BEHAVIOUR WILL NOT BE TOLERATED AND YOU WILL BE BANNED WITH NO REFUND.  THE MARSHALS WORD IS FINAL AND ARGUING WILL NOT BE TOLERATED AND REMEMBER GANGSTA CITY IS NOT A HARDCORE MILSIM. IT’S ABOUT HAVING FUN AND GETTING INTO CHARACTER. ANY BAD CONDUCT WILL RESULT IN THE PLAYER BEING REMOVED AND POINTS LOST FROM THEIR TEAM. IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEMS INFORM A MARSHAL IMMEDIATELY, NOT HOURS LATER WHEN NOTHING CAN BE DONE!

HITS:
A HIT IS CLASSED AS A DIRECT STRIKE FROM A BB ON ANY PART OF THE PLAYER’S BODY AND THEIR EQUIPMENT INCLUDING THE WEAPON IN HAND. OVERKILL WILL NOT BE TOLERATED ALONG WITH BLIND FIRING WHICH WILL RESULT IN THE PLAYER BEING REMOVED FROM GAME.

SCANNING FREQUENCIES / RADIO COMMS:
RADIOS ARE AN IMPORTANT PART OF ANY EVENT FOR ALL TEAMS. SCANNING FOR TEAM FREQUENCIES IS CLASSED AS CHEATING. IF YOU ARE CAUGHT YOU WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE THE EVENT.

BANG RULE:
WE DO NOT ENFORCE THE BANG RULE, BUT YOU MAY USE IT AT YOUR DISCRETION, WE DO HOWEVER EXPECT COMMON SENSE AT CLOSE RANGES! 

MEDIC / RESPAWN:
YOUR MEDIC WILL HAVE A NEOPRENE BAG. THE BAG CONSISTS OF 2 CHIPS - RED AND GREEN. WHEN YOU ARE SHOT RAISE YOUR HAND & SHOUT HIT. YOUR MEDIC WILL PRESENT IN FRONT OF YOU A BAG WITH THE CHIPS IN IT. IF  YOU PULL A RED CHIP YOUR ARE DEAD AND YOU NEED TO RE-SPAWN AT YOUR NEAREST TEAM FLIP CARD BUILDING. IF YOU PULL A GREEN CHIP THEN YOU ARE BACK IN PLAY AND CONTINUE THE FIGHT. BAGS WILL BE CHECKED BY MARSHAL / PLAYER MARSHAL AT REGULAR TIMES FOR CHECKING OF THE CHIPS. YOU CAN ONLY BE MEDIC’D OUTSIDE OF A BUILDING!

IF YOUR BUILDING IS UNDER ATTACK THEN YOU RE-SPAWN AT ONE OF THE BUILDINGS THAT YOU HAVE CONTROL OF WITH THE DESIGNATED FLIP CARD OF YOUR TEAM. GRENADE KILL IS INSTANT KILL AND YOU CANNOT BE MEDIC'D.  - DEAD DON’T TALK!

COVER & GRENADES:

HARD COVER RULE APPLIES - IMPACT GRENADES MUST BE THROWN UNDER ARM. ANY PLAYER IN A ROOM IS DEAD UNLESS BEHIND HARD COVER. HARD COVER IS CLASSED AS A PHYSICAL BARRIER BETWEEN THE PLAYER AND LINE OF SIGHT OF THE GRENADE -  I.E,  A WALL, NOT HIDING BEHIND THE PLAYER IN FRONT OF YOU! RIOT SHIELDS ONLY KILL THE GUY HOLDING THE SHIELD. SHIELD MUST BE DROPPED AND LEFT. ONLY LAW ENFORCEMENT CAN USE RIOT SHIELDS.

HVI:

A HVI (HIGH VALUE INDIVIDUAL) IS A KEY PLAYER WHO HAS A CHARACTER ROLE. IF THIS PERSON IS KILLED, THAT CHARACTER’S ROLE IS FINISHED. HOWEVER, YOU MUST GET PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE OF YOURSELF OR TEAM WITH THE HVI PLAYING DEAD. THIS MUST BE SHOWN TO A MARSHAL AS SOON AS POSSIBLE TO GAIN IN GAME CASH / REWARDS. IF YOU NEED TO DETAIN THE HVI THEN THE HVI DOES NOT REQUIRE TO BE MEDIC'D (5 MINUTE BLEED OUT RULE STILL APPLIES BEFORE YOU CAN TAKE THE HVI THOUGH).

DETAINING:

IF YOU DETAIN A PLAYER OR HVI YOU MUST HOLD FOR A MAXIMUM OF 30 MINUTES. NOTE: DO NOT FORCE A PLAYER TO DO SOMETHING THEY DO NOT WISH TO DO! YOU CANNOT SEARCH A PLAYER. YOU MUST TELL THE PLAYER THAT ALL THEIR WEAPONS ARE OUT OF PLAY. COMMON SENSE IS KEY HERE! NO STRESS POSITIONS AND NO BAGGING OF PLAYERS.
