For the purposes of this page, “admin” is used to describe all
three groups with power: Admins, Cops, and Trusted. The judgement of
an admin takes precedence over any of the rules below.
Rejoining, for strategic purposes (such as recovering from a low
score, or to get back to your base) is a reason for being banned.
The first offense can get you banned directly, normally for a shorter
time, but consider yourself warned.
Also, rejoining as an observer is not allowed. Wait for a player to
leave before rejoining. With the scoreboard onscreen (by default toggled
by "s"), the numbers of players in each team is on the far
right of the screen. There is a maximum of 10 players on each team on
The use of inappropriate language (even when spelt incorrectly)
is in itself a reason for being banned. There is a filter on the
server, but that doesn't give you the argument of “awe, is was filtered,
Some words are not allowed, but are not filted. Likewise, some words are
filtered, but are allowed.
Don't insult people, whether it be calling them an idiot, stupid, or
something more foul, it is not allowed. If you don't have anything
nice to say, don't say anything at all.
The server will automatically kick you once you have over 20% teamkills,
with a minimum of 3 teamkills. The server will never ban you, but
admins will. Warnings will normally be given,
but when busy, or when it is clearly intentional, none may be given.
When you accidentally teamkill, a small “sorry” goes a long
The server has a single rule about camping: no camping at the
enemy base with genocide.
A team with a few decent campers can do wonders for its score. If such
issues arise, get your team together to take down the campers, one by one.
Think ahead, look at the scoreboard, and talk to teammates.
We have a world weapon at the enemy base when you capture their flag,
so being there for a flag capture is useless.
You may only capture the flag when within a green square!
That is to say, when the smaller team has:
1 to 5 players, only when the number of players on each team is
6 to 10 players, only when the difference of the number of
players on each team is less than two (eg. 6v7, but not 6v8).
When the teams are uneven, leave the enemy's flag alone.
Lag and Jit
Both lag and jit make you hard to kill, while the server will autokick
you if you have over 300ms lag (there is no predefined limit on jit: it
has to be dealt with on a case-by-case basis). You shouldn't rejoin
without attempting to fix your lag, the only (practical) way is by
quitting any other applications using the internet. If you persist on
playing you may be kicked or banned by an admin.
