Teufel Hunden Tactical Gaming – Code of Conduct for Members and Guests
Racism, Disrespect, and Insults
We have ZERO tolerance towards this type of behavior. Racism is an immediate permanent ban from the server. Disrespect and insults will result in a warning, up to a permanent ban from the server, depending on the severity of the offense.
We are all in the game to have fun and this type of behavior ruins it for everyone. If you have a grievance towards another player, please let us know in TS or on the website and we will act accordingly.
Camping the Uncapturable Bases
This is one of the quickest ways to empty out a server and is therefore not allowed. All THT members and guests will strive to play the object at all times. Stay out of and do not fire into the enemy uncapturable base. The first offense is a kill, the second is a kick, and the third is a permanent ban.
1.You are being fired upon from the base area
2.An enemy retreats back to the bases, whether on foot or in a vehicle.
Battlefield implemented a great way to reduce airborne base camping with the inclusion of the unmanned anti-aircraft emplacements (C-RAM, CIWS, etc.). If an enemy is camping the uncapturable base with an aircraft, spot the vehicle to shoot it down.
Please notify a THT member of any spawn killing of the uncapturable bases.
Camping in the Field of Play
With the exception of camping the uncapturable bases (see above), other forms of camping are allowed.
Although we want everyone to play the objective, everyone has his/her own style of play. As long as someone is not killing people in the uncapturable bases, it is permitted.
Although spawn killing is very aggravating to the person being killed, it is the nature of the beast in Battlefield. Spawn killing in the enemy team's uncapturable base is prohibited. Please notify a THT member if this is happening.
Examples of non-punishable camping:
1. Getting killed off a spawn beacon.
2. Deploying on the Squad Leader in the field.
If you choose to spawn in the middle of the field of play, there is a possibility of getting killed upon spawning. If you see the WARNING message show on the deployment screen, you may want to spawn elsewhere. On Domination, since there are no uncapturable bases, every spawn is into the field of play and a spawn kill won't be punished. Please refrain from complaining about field of play spawn kills.
Weapons and Equipment
We run the AdKatsLRT plugin to prohibit the use of IRNV, FLIR, Thermal, XM-25, PLD, and Flashbangs. Driver and Gunner IRNV and Thermal are prohibited as well. We also run a Sniper/DMR plug-in which only allows 3 sniper rifles and DMR’s on each team. You may use the Sniper class with a carbine or Shotgun and not be counted against the team limit. Please refrain from complaining about weapon usage in the chat window.
Time and time again these weapon attachments and vehicle systems cause grief with the Battlefield Community. We have chosen to restrict the usage of vision-assisted attachments and weapons systems because it gives the user an unfair advantage over a non-user. We found during most games, it became FLIR and IRNV battles where everyone used them, taking away from all the other weapons systems.
XM-25 and the PLD are prohibited for much the same reason. Both have vision-assist systems that a player can take advantage of to spot players, switch to a primary weapon, and kill opponents quickly.
Equipment such as the MAV and SUAV are allowed because they are used more for team-based applications such as spotting. We know you can roadkill with the SUAV but the frequency of that happening is not nearly as high as a sniper switching between PLD and rifle.
The UCAV is allowed as well because the frequency of kills is a non-issue.
Flashbangs are banned because they are used for a cheap kill and there is no counter to them.
The sniper/DMR restriction is in place to keep the server from becoming an all-sniper server. In hardcore especially, it is very easy to kill someone with a sniper rifle/DMR and leads to frustration for the non-sniping player.
**The restrictions are set by the Admins and can change any time. Our goal is the restrict the least amount of items while maintaining a good gaming balance across all players.***
If you are incapable of flying an aircraft in the manner in which it was intended, do not fly them. Do not use aircraft to ram other aircraft or kamikaze ground targets. The first offense is a warning, the second offense is a kick, and the third offense is a permanent ban.
We understand that accidents do happen, so please apologize if you cause an accidental air collision.
At no time is it acceptable to kill a teammate. If there is an issue between you and another player, please notify us in game chat or TS3. Retribution kills will also be punished. If you accidentally team kill another player, you must apologize in All Chat as soon as possible.
We do not run a punishment plug-in on the server as too many players punish for accidental kills. Therefore, please notify a THT member of intentional team killing.
The first offense is a warning, the second is a kick, and the third is a permanent ban.
It goes without saying that we want a cheat-free gaming environment. If caught using any hacking tools, you will be permanently banned. "Hackusations” will not be tolerated either as it disrupts the game. If you have evidence that someone is cheating or want us to look into someone, please come into TS3 and let us know.
We do not tolerate unfounded complaining in the game server. It is an annoynace and a morale killer. If there is a server rule being broken, please bring it to a THT member in chat or TS3; otherwise, keep it to yourself.
Racism, Disrespect, and Insults
As with the server, any racist or demeaning behavior will be dealt with swiftly and accordingly. If you have a problem with anyone in TS3, please ask a Staff member or MP to pull you to another channel to discuss the issue.
Bad Language/Swear Words
We are all adults and as such light, occasional bad language is allowed in TS3. We would prefer it here rather than in the server chat. When such language moves into racism, disrespect, and insults, or every other word out of your mouth is deemed offensive, you will be dealt with swiftly and accordingly.
Spectating while in TS3
While in TS3, if you feel that someone needs to be spectated for any reason, ask a Staff member or MP to pull you into another channel and request it. If you are a Staff member or MP, don’t announce that you are going to spectate someone.
We don’t want anyone to feel targeted until proper evidence is collected. Remember, that person could be in TeamSpeak at that time.
We want all visitors to our website to have a fun, interesting and friendly experience. With that in mind there are a few subjects that will result in revoked posting privileges up to permanent ban from the server.
Racism, Disrespect, and Insults
Posts must not contain unlawful or objectionable content nor involve disruptive, offensive or abusive behavior. Please be respectful and civil to other members, even if you disagree with them. Material that is unlawful, harassing, threatening, defamatory, obscene, offensive, abusive, hateful, inflammatory, profane, racially, sexually or religiously offensive or otherwise objectionable or unlawful is not acceptable.
Spamming, or flooding, the website with irrelevant or redundant topics is prohibited. All advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, junk mail and any other forms of commercial solicitation are prohibited.
Posts must be in English. Contributions in other languages will be removed.
It will be at our sole decision as to whether there has been a breach of the Code of Conduct. Where we believe there is a breach of the Code of Conduct, we may take whatever action we feel is appropriate in the circumstances.
