Server Rules

Recommended Posts

  All players must abide by these rules in order to play on the Chaotic Gaming server.

All rules are subject to change. Administrators have the final say.




General Altis Life Rules:


All offenses below are punishable by either a warning, kick, or ban.



1.) VDM - Vehicle Deathmatch - [The act of killing someone with a vehicle.] If accidental please report this to administrators with proof. In addition to a potential ban, you will be responsible for providing compensation to everyone that you kill. (VDM is allowed if someone has initiated on you with lethal force.)


2.) RDM - Random Deathmatch - [The act of shooting/killing a player without initiation.] For example, you must have a reason to kill players, such as: a robbery gone wrong, raids, self defense while being fired upon, etc. Except for: Federal Reserve robberies, you must roleplay before shooting or killing anyone. In addition to a potential ban, you are responsible for compensating anyone that you RDM.


3.) Metagaming - [Using teamspeak or another program to figure out information on enemies, and reporting it to your friendly team] Metagaming is considered fail roleplay and will result in a permanent ban. Meatagaming is not allowed on Chaotic Gaming Servers.


4.) Exploiting/Glitching - [Using known exploits or glitches to cheat in-game for an advantage. (Can be glitching through walls, abusing game mechanics such as dsync ramming, and even quickly knocking someone out before your weapon is completely drawn.)] If found abusing an exploit or glitch, you will be permanently banned without an appeal. If you find a glitch and report it an admin, you will be given a reward.


5.) Hacking - [Injecting code, using mod menus, or even using unauthorized addons is considered hacking.] If you are caught using hacks you will be permanently banned from the Arma 3 server, the teamspeak server, and the website. You will not be able to appeal this ban.


6.) DDoS - [The act of using a booter or botnet to crash a server's internet connection.] If you are found ddosing the server, your information will be sent to the authorities and you will be prosecuted by the law. Ddosing is illegal in the United States and ddosing is something we take very seriously. If caught, this will also result in a ban from all of our servers with no chance of an appeal.

7.) Initiation - You may not initiate from a helicopter or if you do not see the player who you are trying to role play with in plain view. If there are no shots fired, role play has ended after 60-120 seconds.

I.)  New Life Rule (NLR): Sec. 1-0


*The New Life Rule applies to everyone in the server.

     I.) If you are killed you must wait 10 minutes before returning to the scene of your death.

     II.) You are not to respawn near the same area of your death. (Ex. If you died in Kavala, don't spawn in Kavala.)

     III.) If you die during role-play with an officer your past crimes are forgotten. (New life)

     IV.) If you are RDM'd by another player, it's not classified as a new life.

    V.) If you manually respawn or purposely kill yourself, it's not a new life.

    VI.) If you die you cannot seek revenge.

II.) Killing yourself to get out of role play: Sec. 1-2


    I.) If the log shows you got arrested then you died miraculously, you will be banned. Do not pay bail and kill yourself for an easy ride home. Walk.

    II.) [Duping items and/or money.] If someone sends you an unattainable amount of money, report them to an admin and transfer the money to the admin. Do this as soon as you see it or an admin could ban or wipe your account.

    III.) [Using clearly hacked items.] If a hacker comes in and spawns unobtainable items, you could be banned for using those items. Report the items to the admins IMMEDIATELY and stay away from them.

    IV.) Abusing bugs or game mechanics for gain. Is there a replicating gun somewhere? Report it and leave it alone. If an admin catches you abusing the glitch, it could result in a ban.

III.)  Safezones: Sec. 1-3


 I.) You are not allowed to camp safezones, if seen doing so you will be given a 1 day ban from the server.

     II.) Safe Zones are areas where it is against the rules to kill, rob, assault, knockout, set off explosives, kidnap, or otherwise break the law/initiate roleplay. If you are seen doing any of the listed infractions, you will be banned without warning. This does NOT exclude killing your own friends or buddies... There is no exception to this rule.

    III.) A safe zone is any of the following listed areas: All shops,garages, and ATMs (You must be 10 meters away from these areas to initiate.) The only exception is if roleplay was in progress before entering these areas.

    IV.) Zoned areas end when they end on the map on a 2D level. They also extend 150 meters in the air. If you are above 150 meters, you are not inside of the safe zone.

    V.) If you are being chased and drive or land in a safe zone  will simply void the safety and allow your pursuer to engage you.

    VI.) Shooting inside of a safe zone, shooting into a safe zone, or shooting out of a safe zone, or detonating a bomb in a safe zone will all result in your removal from the server. Accidentally shooting is one thing; spraying Pawnee miniguns or an MX is a another.

IV.) Martial Law: Sec. 1-4


* The entire point of martial law is for cops to refresh the server and remove RDM'ers, rebels, armed vehicles, etc from a city. It is not declared for 'fun' but rather it is a vessel for making the game fun again for those not participating in gunfire and illegal activities. Do not complain that it is overpowered, because that is the point.


    I.) During Martial Law, all civilians need to go inside or they may be arrested. If you are armed (including a weapon on your back), the police can ask you to surrender your weapon, but also have the right to detain you send you to jail.

    II.) If you are a civilian and you are killed in martial law by a police officer, you may not return to the city until martial law is undeclared. Doing so will result in a warning/kick

    III.) If you are a cop with access to heavily armed vehicles, you may bring out heavy vehicles to deal with the situation. Swat may not take out tanks unless the situation is completely out of hand, but a marshal or panther may be taken out at any time during martial law. No more than 1 (ONE) tank or heavy vehicle out at one time unless there are more than one hostile vehicle of equal or greater strength. (1 Marshall OR 1 Panther, not both)

    IV.) Members of Swat are in charge during Martial Law.

V.) Random Rules Sec. 1-5

    III.) Civilians or Rebels who take up arms to kill cops in town or elsewhere for no RP reason will be considered RDMing.

    IV.) Following and or harassing cops for long periods of time, or not complying with a cop that tells you to leave, will be considered griefing and/or trolling, and will result in your removal from the server.

    VI.) When taking hostages or forcefully requesting compliance, if your hostage faithfully complies with your demands, they cannot be killed. If they lie or otherwise attempt to manipulate the hostage taker, they can then be harmed/wounded to ensure compliance, or killed at the hostage taker's discretion.

    VII.) Actively blocking cops from doing their duties can lead to your arrest. Constantly doing this will result in your removal from the server

     VIII.) Any player who initiates contact on another player must wait a total of 7 seconds or enough time for the player to respond. If in that time the player/players initiating contact have been fired upon they may return fire.

VI.) Water Vehicles: Sec. 1-6


I.) Repeatedly pushing boats without permission will be considered griefing and will result in a 1 day ban.

    II.) Pushing a boat with the intention of hurting or killing someone. This is not RP, it is just a flaw in the mechanics as well as seen as VDM and RDM.

    IV.) Unarmed Aircraft should not be flown less than 200 meters over a city. Landing a helicopter in a non-designated area is at your own-risk and will be considered a hostile act by Law Enforcement. Landing in a designated area requires that you consent to a search of your person and vehicle. If you do not consent with this search then you must leave the city or face being arrested.

    VII.) The only reason for shooting at a vehicle would be to disable it and/or fire warning shots in a role-play scenario. You may kill any occupants in the vehicle if they have shot at you first and are driving away. Otherwise only try to disable the vehicle. Attempting to disable a vehicle is considered an act of initiation and can result in being fired upon.
