on Ets Servers. No Recruiting or Advertising this result of instant ban.
No Cheating or Hacking
Cheats, hacks and scripts such as; aimbots, wallhacks, multihacks, namehacks, guidspoofers, etc. are NOT allowed at our servers, using them will result in a permanent ban!
When you spot a possible cheater, use the console to send a private message (PM) to our Server Admins. Example: /m Ets Hello Admins, I think 'insert player name' is cheating, could you check him?
When there are no admins online to make a ban, record a demo.
See the for more info about recording and saving a demo in Enemy Territory. Once you recorded a demo open a topic in the http://enemyterritory-stuff.net/forums/forum/25-medias/ section and provide all the necessary information (i.e. player name, server, map, mod etc.).
No Spawnkilling (SK)
killing the enemy in his own spawn is NOT allowed and is considered Spawnkilling (SK), this includes; walking through enemy spawn while shooting or shooting into enemy spawn from a distance.
This rule applies to ALL weapons!
Spawnkilling is a serious offence and will most likely result in a warn (!warn, !burn, !gib) possibly followed by a kick, temporary ban or permanent ban (depending on the situation).
SK with heavy weapons (mortar, panzer, flamer, airstrikes, artillery etc.) and with light weapons is FORBIDDEN!
The SK rule does not apply to capturable spawns, such as flags or commandposts. Killing enemies at capturable spawns is ONLY allowed with light weapons (SMG, knife, handgun, grenades etc.)! Mines at capturable spawns are allowed as long as enemies do not directly spawn on them.
Walking through enemy spawn without performing ANY other actions (shooting, throwing granades, planting dynamite/satchel, goomba etc.) is considered spawnpassing. It's allowed but not recommended.
ETS HAVE TO EVEN THE TEAMS FIRST
Don't block doorways or paths for your teammates on purpose.
Don't push your teammates, for example; when they are sniping, mortaring, using a mg. Pushing your teammates of high ledges is also forbidden. Pushing is ONLY allowed when a teammate is blocking a doorway or path (see the point above).
Don't defuse or activate landmines placed by other teammates on purpose.
Don't defuse dynamite placed by other teammates.
trickplant allowed or use your teammates as a step up to plant dynamite, for example; planting dynamite at the guns from the outside on the oasis map.
Don't use trickjumps or doublejumps to complete a map objective, for example; jumping over the wall as an engineer to blow up the fuel dump to complete the map. Doublejumping over walls or obstacles without doing map objectives is not allowed.
Forbidden Names and Tags
We don't allow insulting, offensive or provoking Nicknames at our servers. For example:
No Nazi or Communist referenced names or tags. For example: SS, Adolf Hitler, Jozef Stalin, etc.)
No confusing nicknames. For example: Teammate, Teamkill, Enemy in disguise, etc.
No empty or standard nicknames. For example: ETPlayer, unnamedplayer, etc.
No extended ASCII characters (i.e. characters that cannot be entered with simple keystrokes).
No namestealing (i.e. using the same name as another player currently on the server).
ENGLISH IN MAIN CHAT
ETS is an International Enemy Territory Gaming Community. This means that English is our primary language to communicate. Using your native language (exception: English) is ONLY allowed in fireteam chat or private chat.
Newbs, Noobs and Team Play
Our server is here mainly for the enjoyment of *Ets*s and for the "enjoyment of the many, not the few and certainly not the one" and based on the "average player". Our sever is here for "team play" not for individual statistics.
Newbs (those new to the game), and Noobs (those not new but who don't play very well) are WELCOME here. If playing with a newb or noob, YOU are expected to help them learn, help them get better and even help cover their ass when going for the objective. You are not expected to verbally abuse them for lack of knowledge or lack of skill. Do this and you'll find they will still be playing while you are being kicked off our server.
If you are here to be a "douche" (constant complaining, verbal abuse of other players, constant whining) then you are subject to be kicked off our server simply because you are taking away from the enjoyment of other players. If you have a complaint or suggestion, bring it here (to the forums), our refs and admins are in game to play, not to listen to you complain, which leads to one final point.
Arguing with Refs or Admins
Arguing with refs or admins in game IS NOT allowed on our server and subject to get you kicked off (even if you are right and they are wrong). If you feel one of our refs has been unfair, bring your complaint here and post it, it will be looked into. If one of our refs is found to be intentionally unfair he will be reprimanded, if not he won't and you'll be told you are wrong (so be prepared to handle that). If however, you chose to argue with or bitch at the ref in game, then don't even worry about coming here and complaining afterward.
