Recommended Posts

Player(s) being reported: id 76
Date of interaction reported: 21/10/19
Unix time stamp from HUD: 1571668286

Your characters name:  Charlie Raggins (66)

Other player(s) involved: Lele Mchoe (my friend) and his friends but don’t know there id 

Specific rule(s) broken: powergaming, metagaming and non-rp


  • Actions that are unrealistic or promote poor quality roleplay are considered as non-roleplay.

  • Examples of actions that are considered as non-roleplay:

  • • Swimming in water for an unrealistic amount of time or without a destination during a chase.

  • Players who disconnect during roleplay must reconnect and inform other parties in order to resume roleplay. If you are unable to reconnect it may be excused after providing proof.

  • In a situation where a player gets away from an incident where they're being chased/pursued, they must wait 15 minutes before they can logout. Players should not instigate roleplay situations if they do not have time to play it through. 

  • Players who ignore answering roleplay commands directed at them, e.g. /do.

  • In a situation where a player’s game crashes or the player is kicked from the server, they should be allowed to have the same advantages as they have had before their leave.

  • • Cop Baiting - Provoking a reaction from emergency services without a realistic reason.

    • Mercy Killing - Asking to be killed by a friend (Killing a friend falls under deathmatching).

    • Unrealistic stunt jumping or the use of an expensive vehicle to ram into other vehicles.

    • Spawning a scripted work vehicle and using it for crimes or submerging any vehicle in water.



Powergaming (PG)

  • Forceful roleplay that does not give the other player a chance to roleplay their own response is considered powergaming. Other players must be given a chance to roleplay outcomes of actions.

  • Roleplay of unrealistic actions like super strength is another form of powergaming.

  • All statements in /DO must be factually true in the roleplay as it sets grounds for roleplay.

  • Roleplay is required before forceful server commands which may be used without consent from the other party if they are unresponsive and not typing for 30 seconds or more. 

  • A player cannot use the faction management script to destroy a faction as it is OOC.

  • Government funded faction members must not abuse the salary system and must go off-duty when they are not performing their faction duties.

  • If you perform an action which will influence potential RP in the future, you must have OOC evidence of performing said RP. 

    • OOC evidence should consist of a recording or screenshot and it needs to be timestamped (/time).

    • RP would only be valid for 48 hours or until your character dies and NLR is triggered. The time limit does not apply to rule 7.


Metagaming (MG)

  • Metagaming is the act of relaying IC information through any method not considered IC that has the potential to change current or future roleplay scenarios or using that information. 

  • Mixing IC and OOC information without any benefit is a minor MG offense. For example, a player uses IC chat to call someone by their player ID displayed above their head.


How did the player break the rule(s)?

First of all he broke powergaming by just stealing my items out of my car which gave me no say in what he did. Secondly, the player broke non-rp by jumping out of my car while driving. Finally, the player broke metagaming by communicating with his friends with ooc information, I know this because he didn’t once talk in the radio and somehow all of his friends are set up and ready to shoot.

Evidence of the rule being broken:

@Emulsify SantinoDeferro handled most of this ingame. First off taking something out of a vehicle has never been considered power gaming but if it is then you would be driving so I do not know how you could do anything. I got out of the car cause I told him to stop which he kind of did but when I took the items out of his car he sped up. Could i also ask the reporting party to add the full clip where he VDM'd me twice. Also at the end of the video he DM'd me I wasn't under fear RP he just got out of his car and shot the person above him and when he couldn't he shot at me even tho I did not do anything. He didn't not have consent to kidnap me. Since the video is skipped, its edited and therefore not allowed as per player report standards. The video is purposefully edited to make me seem guilty. The purpose of this report seems less as a rulebreak and more as a method of gaining revenge.

First of it was not a kidnap, we were just trying to get our stuff back which you just took out of the car and jumped out while I was driving. Secondly it was not VDM, I was reversing to you because you were running away and you ran behind my car therefore it is an accident. I cut this out of the video because my internet is trash and it would take hours or even days to upload the whole 20-30minutes of the full thing.

Thank you again for making this report @Charliepollock10

I would first like to thank everyone who responded with their side of the story and for explaining their actions which can be seen in the provided evidence. After extensively reviewing the provided evidence and taking into account the responses, have come to a conclusion.

Player Sufyaan_Khan will NOT be receiving a punishment.

Firstly, I am going to address the reasoning behind the lack of punishment and what lead us to this conclusion. In the provided evidence, it can be seen that the reported party took items out of the vehicle’s inventory. RPly this inventory would be the glove box, which would be in front of the passenger seat. Therefore, as the reported party stated in their response, this would not be powergaming.

Secondly, after extensively reviewing the logs from this incident, there was nothing that pointed to any metagaming from either party.

This report is denied and archived.
Kind regards,
Emulsify & Tnewty
