Rules: All Players

Use your common sense, these rules are to be used as guidance for game play and will apply throughout all Oceanic servers. All players must adhere to these rules, finding loopholes or bending rules for your own benefit will see you punished with a warn/kick/ban.

1. Respect others, leave personal attacks out. Any disrespect, racism or discrimination towards other players will entitle you to a mute/kick/ban.

2. If an admin tells you to do something, respect their authority and adhere accordingly, admins are here to enforce the rules.

3. The ratio for teams are (3:1): 3 Terrorists for each 1 Counter-Terrorist, (i.e. 15 Ts and 5 CTs). Stacking the CT team will result in a slay/swap, repeating this offense multiple times will result in a kick/temporary CTban. There is a maximum limit of 10 CTs at any time.

4. No microphone spamming (this includes spam at the end of the round) or encouraging microphone spamming, players doing so will receive a mute/kick/ban. This applies to chat spam as well.

5. Players that use their name to communicate will be warned then kicked on the repeated offense.

6. Players that reveal map secrets will be commbanned.

7. Any advertisement on Oceanic servers or forums will entitle you to a ban, this will not be tolerated.

8. The first round of a new map is an automatic open day, this can be changed to no outside or no inside depending on the map or warden.

9. If a warden has given orders and dies before the orders or game has been carried out or if no other CT has given orders then the original orders are still valid.

10. Encouraging mass freekillers is not allowed, if someone mass freekills after a player has egged them on, the player will be punished with half the CTBan of the offending player.

11. No inappropriate sprays. This means anything illegal to everyone including people under 18.

12. No abusing bugs/glitches/exploits on the server, see rule 2.

Hacking of any sort will result in a permanent ban from all Oceanic servers. Bhop scripting, macros and AHK are also not allowed, doing so will result in warn/kick/ban.

Rules: Counter-Terrorists (CTs)

13. Freekilling or mass-freekilling will result in a CTBan. This includes freekilling of all forms (shooting props at Ts, spamming game buttons, enabling friendlyfire in an uncontrolled situation etc.) (to be unbanned you will need to wait the period of time or by posting an unban request)

14. CTs should not be excessively talking over mic unless they are the warden. Continuous talking over the warden as a CT you will get muted and swapped.

15. The more CTBans a player has, the more time they will be banned for on their next offence, up until a server ban.

16. CTs with microphones, that are willing to issue orders, will be given priority over those who do not.

17. CTs must be within clear sight/range of Ts or they will be considered to be camping where Ts are not.

22. CTs are not allowed to throw smoke grenades/flash bangs at non-rebelling T's. (CTs shouldn't be baiting smokes just to kill off Ts)

23. CTs are not allowed to order Ts to crouch/walk to destinations.

24. Gun planting is not allowed, doing so will result in a CTBan (planting a toy gun will be up to the admins discretion for a ban or slay).

25. CTs can kill any Ts in vents/gunroom or with powers without warning as this is deemed an autorebel. However, CTs are not allowed to camp gunroom or vents.

26. CTs cannot break vents, however if a CT is in a vent they may break their way out.

27. CTs cannot kill prisoners in cells after they close (unless the prisoner is AFK, hiding or a game has been played and they haven't asked for cells in chat prior to it starting). Any CT using a microphone to check for AFK players will be muted.

28. CTs smoking another CT will result in a temporary CT ban.

32. Ts cannot be killed for the possession of a weapon (primary or secondary), unless they are pointing/shooting at a CT (they can be asked to drop the gun but it is not a rebel if they refuse. Ts choice outside of gun-check.

35. CTs must not act in a way that deliberately disadvantages other CTs - such as opening cells early, spamming doors against teammates, etc.

36. CTs cannot treat any of the Ts with favouritism. All rewards, punishments and orders must be awarded equally and fairly.

37. CTs can only order Ts to stack in a small/single/confined location for legitimate reasons such as a game, otherwise this is considered smoke bait.

38. Smoking off a vent is allowed if there is no potential for non-rebelling Ts to get injured from the smoke or if the vent is of high HP enough to not break from the smoke, e.g Stylez vent or Darkcells back wall.

39. CTs are not allowed to use/activate map secrets at all, even to enter secret rooms or secret areas.

40. CTs can kill AFK T's after 8:00 if the T is not moving and blatantly AFK. (Vent cell can be killed before 8 if they do not respond to orders, i.e "Hyphen to the front of your cells"

43.1 You may not play a game in the same area where a guncheck was commenced.

43.2 Ts are allowed to knife vents until a CT says "no knifing vents" or "knifing vents will get you shot" etc (doesn't matter on wording as long as it is clear).

43.3 Nazi behaviours are heavily discouraged as it leads to trigger-happiness, freewounding and takes a lot of the fun out of the game for the Ts. This will be up to admin discretion. An example of behaviour that is against the rules is killing a T out of cells who took a few steps in the wrong direction and obviously wasn't trying to run off, or killing that T later in the round for it.

43.4 You may not play a game in the same area where a guncheck was commenced.
