  1. PLAYER REPORT DENIED Thank you for your patience while this report was under review. After reviewing this report and evidence attached to it, I have decided to deny this report for the following reason(s)' The reporting party made an in character movement with his vehicle and was hit by the reported player as a result. It becomes glaringly clear that there was no attempt to maliciously hit you during this situation to gain the upper hand, and instead the collision was caused by your sudden turn in the direction that the police cruiser was traveling in - in other words, the crash was caused as a result of your in character actions and should not necessarily be deemed an instance of deathmatch. Removing an entire report along with associated evidence is frowned upon and only brings more complications, especially when we aim to conclude the report. If you accidentally show footage depicting yourself breaking rules, own up to it and explain what you could have done better, how you aim to correct the poor behaviour and what type of roleplay we can explain from you in any similar future instances - removing the evidence not only makes you look guilty, but makes you seem less genuine in your intentions e.g you would much rather want to cover up your own rulebreak rather than bettering and improving yourself based on prior mistakes. In the future, simply inform reviewing staff that you wish to take down the report and we will go about our own process. I am not entirely sure what gave you the impression that abusing game mechanics to gain an advantage in roleplay scenarios is not a violation of our server rules. The specific act referenced above e.g wheeling to get away during a chase has been touched upon in the server rule changes and clarifications thread which goes hand in hand with our server rulebook, however i will make an effort in adding it under the listed examples of Non Roleplay as that is what it falls under. This decision is final. Unless instructed to, if you post another player report pertaining to this incident, you may be muted from posting on the forums for a temporary period. If you disagree with the outcome of this report, please file an appeal following the appeal guidelines and format. Regards, Head Administrator Dqniel & Administrator Aldarine.
  2. PLAYER REPORT ACCEPTED Hello, and thank you to everyone who responded with their side of the story and explained the reasoning for their actions which can be seen in the provided evidence above. After reviewing the provided evidence as well as taking the statements of all parties involved into consideration, I have decided to conclude this report. Dante_Watson will receive a punishment for Non Roleplay. As per the statement of the reported party, the attack happened due to; 1. The reporting party was given clear megaphone demands. 2. The reporting party was given clear verbal demands with aimed weapons. 3. The reporting party posed a public threat in numerous different ways. I will break down the above three points and elaborately explain why, in the context of this situation, that these three points after review are not a valid basis to attack a player for. Firstly, the general consensus has been that megaphone demands during pursuits are valid, however this purely depends on context and the way said megaphone demands are provided. If you truly believe that giving megaphone demands to a moving vehicle which is passing you at high speeds for a split second while the vehicle that you are seated in is in the process of turning constitutes as plausible demands, then allow me to educate you - they do not. It is not at all comparable to placing your police cruiser behind a suspect's vehicle for a substantial amount of time and giving megaphone demands, which is typically (not always) when megaphone demands during pursuits are considered acceptable and valid. Secondly, there were not any weapons aimed at the reporting party until he had placed himself on the bike as per the provided evidence given to us in this player report, so the claim that he blatantly disregarded aimed weapons is simply untrue. There was indeed one verbal demand directed towards the reporting party to put his hands up, however he was shot one or two seconds after these demands. This is not a sufficient amount of time. While it is understandable that more time cannot be given as the reporting party was in the process of getting on the bike and escaping in connection to those demands, however given the non hostility shown throughout this situation I believe that shooting him is something which severely and unrealistically escalated the situation. There was absolutely nothing stopping you from picking up the pursuit after the escape of the suspect, at that point realism and fair play would not have been jeopardized. Thirdly, there has been no evidence to support the fact that the reported party posed a threat to the general public. The suspicion that he may have been a part of a supposed convoy that went around harming other civilians is a good basis for a traffic stop, but anything concrete in terms of evidence had not been gathered beyond that and escaping a pursuit does not necessarily correlate to being complicit in said crime so attacking them under this notion is simply poor and invalid. Moreover, attacking someone under the notion that they are known to cause ambushes in connection to pursuits and blatantly shooting someone for that reason later on is completely unacceptable. In short, you unrealistically escalated the situation and shot the reporting party without a strong enough reason, in the context of roleplaying as an officer. The above points are evident of this. To be quite frank the actions you displayed showed a proneness to win rather playing fairly and this is something you should be considering moving forward. If you have received a punishment that you disagree with, feel free to file a punishment appeal following the punishment appeal guidelines and format. If the reporting party suffered a loss greater than $25,000 in value, feel free to file a refund request following the refund request guidelines and format.

  3. PLAYER REPORT PENDING RESPONSES Thank you for your patience while this report is under review. After reviewing this report and the evidence attached to it, I have decided that this report cannot be concluded at this time. The following players will be required to provide their side of the story from this situation within the next twenty-four (24) hours: What is your involvement in this situation?

  5. After several decision appeals pertaining to this player report, we have decided to revise the final outcome of this player report. Please see below.
  6. Hello, and thank you for submitting this punishment appeal! Following an extensive investigation of this punishment appeal along with taking the statements of all parties involved into account, I have come to the conclusion that your player report will be denied. I would like to preface by saying that I find it hypocritical for you to comment on the supposed disrespect of the reported party´while you are also severely insulting him in this player report. Nonetheless, taking aside the blatant disrespect towards the reported party in this player report there is undeniable evidence of you cheating as is suggested by multiple received videos which also match up with the several anticheat flags received in connection to you playing. I would also like to point out that contrary to what was initially stated in the player report, this is not a baseless investigation and subsequent ban - you were indeed reported, multiple times at that and claiming the opposite is false. Furthermore, the overall behaviour displayed by you through out of character chat is quite appalling and very unbecoming of a community member. I would like to point out that this is only a small selection of your generic logs and this is not including the blatant metagaming and overall lack of roleplay that you conducted during the day of your permanent ban. Not only are there grounds to ban you for cheating, but also grounds to ban you for the incredibly disrespectful behaviour, blatant metagaming and overall lack of roleplay shown in-game. For this reason and the fact that the player report guidelines dictate that we do not accept player reports from banned members of this community, i will be denying this player report. You will not be welcomed back to this community. This player report is rejected and archived.
  7. PLAYER REPORT DENIED Thank you for your patience while this report was under review. After reviewing this report and evidence attached to it, I have decided to deny this report for the following reason(s): Hello, and thank you for submitting this player report! I would like to take this opportunity to thank both parties involved for remaining patient while this report has been carefully reviewed. With that being said, after extensively reviewing this player report as well as taking the statements of both parties into account, I have decided to conclude this report. There is no breach of the deathmatch rules taking place during this situation. I do not believe the story provided by @VzComplex to be plausible, it can hardly be called an act of self defense when the reporting party was driving away and showing no hostile threat at the time of being shot, and had you truly been in fear for your life you could have simply driven away considering you were situated on your bike at the time and had more than enough opportunities of distancing yourself. With that being said however, this is not an isolated situation - as mentioned by @Symere and the reporting party in the player report there is several hours all of which are unaccounted for in this player report, previous hostility between both factions who also made their intentions incredibly clear in this situation e.g engage in a fight - considering the context, previous altercations and clear intentions of the players involved where the sole intentions were to engage in a fight, we deem that in the context of this situation that the shooting was acceptable. That is not to say that the reasoning for shooting after the fact is flawed, I have stated and will reiterate again that this cannot be classified as an act of self defense when there is no active threat and the means of escaping had fear been a factor was very much evident in this situation, however given the previous context and unaccounted for situations, we do not believe this to be deathmatch given the background leading up to this. There is also no breach of the Hacking and Exploits rule taking place during this situation. There is not only insufficient evidence, but basing a serious accusation of cheating on a single headshot that you received due to it “being extremely difficult” without taking in any other factors into consideration is completely unacceptable and if you intend on making future reports pertaining to cheating the provided evidence should not only be reasonable, but also convincing beyond receiving a single shot which you subjectively perceived as difficult. In the future, please reserve reports (especially ones pertaining to cheating) for serious situations that warrant it. This decision is final. Unless instructed to, if you post another player report pertaining to this incident, you may be muted from posting on the forums for a temporary period. If you disagree with the outcome of this report, please file an appeal following the appeal guidelines and format. Regards, Head Administrator Dqniel & Administrator Aldarine.
  8. PLAYER REPORT DENIED Thank you for your patience while this report was under review. After reviewing this report and evidence attached to it, I have decided to deny this report for the following reason(s): Upon reviewing this report it can be seen that the reported player was on the scene pending arrest/investigation by numerous law enforcement officers. As shown within the evidence the reporting player took a moment and got onto a bike and left the scene. The on scene staff member then teleported the player back, which we viewed as acceptable. With numerous armed law enforcement officers on the scene, a reaction to an attempt to escape would be realistically immediate and there was no extensively clear opening to escape. While it is understood that it may have seemed like a valid opportunity to escape, the overall context of the situation and the number of individuals on the scene whom were armed made the scene one where escaping did not show adequate fear or realistic action. This decision is final. Unless instructed to, if you post another player report pertaining to this incident, you may be muted from posting on the forums for a temporary period. If you disagree with the outcome of this report, please file an appeal following the appeal guidelines and format. Regards, Head Administrator Dqniel & Administrator Aldarine

  10. PLAYER REPORT DENIED Thank you for your patience while this report was under review. After reviewing this report and evidence attached to it, I have decided to deny this report for the following reason(s): The evidence provided is not conclusive enough to indicate any hacking or usage of software that provides players with an advantage. Being on the receiving end of several shots which are seemingly hard to do does not automatically equate to cheats being used. Please do not take reporting another player lightly and reserve player reports for situations that have caused severe loss or were abused for benefit. Consider if you could possibly teach this player or if you've tried to come to a resolution on your own. Reporting another player should be reserved for your final options when a rule breach has occurred. This decision is final. Unless instructed to, if you post another player report pertaining to this incident, you may be muted from posting on the forums for a temporary period. If you disagree with the outcome of this report, please file an appeal following the appeal guidelines and format. Regards, Head Administrator Dqniel.
  11. This will be denied and archived until a new player report with the proper formatting has been submitted.

If you think it is possible to hit the individual given your distance, then it is not far fetched to assume that it would be possible for them to be able to hit you. Please do not take reporting another player lightly and reserve player reports for situations that have caused severe loss or were abused for benefit. Consider if you could possibly teach this player or if you've tried to come to a resolution on your own.
