Scope of the Rules of Engagement

This document is a compendium of the rules of the Squad servers. If a rule is not listed in this document it does not exist and is not enforceable. Each rule will have specific definitions as well as an elaboration of its intent. By the end of this document, no question should remain as to what a rule means and how it applies to the player.

Specific definitions of Squad Server Rules
The following numbered list of all server rules are in accordance with the list of above. Each rule has a subsection explaining the intent of the rule.

1. No fratricide or friendly fire----

  • Commonly called 'TK'ing' or 'Team Killing' - the purposeful or accidental killing of a teammate - is not allowed on this server;
  • Do not team kill, this is grounds for instant banning;
  • Intentionally Team Killing a 7th Cavalry Admin while actively being an admin will result in an instant ban from the server;
  • If you accidentally Team Kill or hurt a team member apologize immediately

Spirit of the rule - Intentionally team killing other players is detrimental to the spirit of team play. While friendly fire is a reality on the battlefield, it is unacceptable and should be avoided.

2. No destruction of friendly equipment.----

  • This includes purposeful and accidental occurrences;
  • This includes all actions other than enemy fire: crashing, using explosives and shooting;

Spirit of the rule - This rule is similar in spirit to the first rule. There's already enough concern with the enemy trying to wax that armor or aviation asset.

3. No offensive behavior.----

  • No racism nor sexism of any kind. Any racist or discriminating remarks or names will result in an instant ban;
  • No political or religious discussions or references including names;
  • No disrespect towards other players or admins;
  • No disrespect towards the 7th Cavalry Gaming Regiment;
  • No disrespect towards the deceased;
  • No disrespectful or offensive abbreviations;
  • No elitist attitude towards others or taunting;
  • No mic spamming;
  • No trolling;

Spirit of the rule - The 7th Cavalry tries to create a fun environment without drama where people can just get together, play and have fun in a tactical environment.

4. No camping the uncapturable bases----

  • Intentionally choking an uncapturable spawn area, blocking all areas off from escape;
  • Do not fire into or out of uncaps, unless you are getting fired at. Retaliate and move away;
  • You must be actively trying to move forward, and leave your base;

Spirit of the rule - This rule is about fair competition. We want everyone to have fun, therefore everyone should get the opportunity to fight back. If you see that the enemy is unable to get out of their spawn area you need to fall back; if you don´t you are ruining their fun. The exception would be if the game mode forces you to move in to spawn.

5. No blind usage of explosives----

  • Visual or verbal (in-game or Discord) confirmation of target is needed;
  • Tracers fired at you or teammates can be considered hostile and reacted upon;
  • Footsteps and hostile verbal communication are considered valid indicators and can be reacted upon;
  • Clearing explosives is allowed as long as you follow through;
  • Call out explosives so your teammates know what's going on to make sure you do not hurt friendlies

Spirit of the rule - These rules are designed to promote a tactical experience and prevent team kills by grenade spamming.

6. All Squad Leaders must have a microphone and utilize an SL kit and communicate in English.----

  • Squad Leaders must have a microphone to communicate with their squad and other Squad Leaders.
  • Squad Leaders must utilize an SL kit in order to utilize all functions and assets of the position.
  • Using text chat only is not acceptable.
  • All communication must be in English.
  • Failing to do so will result in being kicked from the server.

Spirit of the rule - It is too difficult to lead while using text chat only, voice communication must be used to be an effective leader. Not having an SL kit also prohibits the squad from placing down required assets for organized play.

7. You must join a Squad and follow your Squad Leader's orders----

  • Commonly called "lone-wolfing".
  • You must join a Squad, if they are full start a new one.
  • Staying unassigned doesn't contribute to the team.
  • Follow you Squad Leaders orders, they have the discretion to kick you from the squad for not following orders.
  • Helps identify AFK players.
  • Failing to do so will result in a kicked from the server.

Spirit of the rule - You need to be part of your squad and team to be able to contribute to the objectives, "lone-wolfing" does not contribute to that. This also helps us keep AFK players off the server.

8. Vehicles & Crewman----

  • Vehicles which require a Crewman slot to operate must have two persons crewing it
    • That said, solo-crewing a vehicle which requires a Crewman kit is forbidden.
  • Transport helicopters are excluded, as they require a single Pilot role.
    • In the event that Attack Helicopters are added, they will require two Pilots.

9. Vehicle Claims----

  • Vehicles are claimed by Squad name - first person to create a squad with the vehicle name, lays rightful claim to that vehicle.
    • Naming conventions that are acceptable include - MBT, Heli, BMP.

10. Don't form a squad unless you intend to lead it----

  • Creating a squad and then leaving or promoting another player is not allowed.Spirit of the rule - Creating a squad out of frustration and then leaving the SL role is not acceptable. If you don't intend to lead a squad, wait until another squad opens. It wastes time and inevitably leads to a squad without an SL or just ends up being disbanded.
