Server Information and Rules - IG_Battlegrounds (Warband)
« on: June 20, 2010, 02:25:14 AM »
IG_Battlegrounds

The Guard of Istiniar runs a Warband-server with space for 50 players named IG_Battlegrounds. The servers location is in Paris, France. If you play on the server, please adhere to the rules shown below.

Donating to keep the server running would also be appreciated. To donate, just follow the "Donate"-link on the homepage at guardofistiniar.org.

If you have suggestions regarding the server, make a post in this thread or a new thread in this sub-forum.

Rules

This table showing rules/offences and the consequences for offences is just a guideline for adminstrative action. Generally, the administrative response is to be decided by the admin(s) present and may be reviewed, overturned, confirmed or even increased retrospectively.

These consequences of behaviour violating rules are only suggestive. The consequences for specific situations depend on the specific incident and admin carrying out the administrative response. While glitching usually is responded to by warning1 or, if repeated, by kicking the offender and occasional crude language is likewise dealt with less drastically then other offences, both offences together would warrant a harsher response.

After an admin warned a player for violating a rule, the admins on the server may proceed with the consequences described in "Consequences for repeated Occurrence", depending on their assessment. "Kick / Temporary or Permanent Ban" means they are asked to first kick the offender and then either temporarily or permanently ban him or her. "Kick / Temporary Ban" means they are asked to first kick the offender and then temporarily ban him or her, generally not banning the offender permanently. "Warning / Permanent Ban" and "Kick / Permanent Ban" mean that the admin may warn the player or warn and kick the player, but that they can also immediately and permanently ban the player without giving a warning if the situation warrants it.

Type of OffenceExampleExplanation of the RuleConsequences for first OccurrenceConsequences for repeated Occurrence
Prolonging RoundsProlonging the end of the round, while other players have wait for the round to end. This only applies to the last man or a group of players acting in unison. Examples: Hiding far away from the enemy team in a way that is not an ambush, but a means of letting time run out. Running away from the enemy without attempting to fight.Other players have to wait for the round to end longer than necessary, while also not being able to watch any interesting combat. This is boring and annoying.WarningWarning / Kick
GlitchingAccessing a spot abusing flaws in the map or game, including but not limited to entering houses, leaving the map or accessing a place that requires several non-obvious jumps to suceedGlitching gives an unfair advantage to the perpetrator and decreases the positive experience of other players on the serverWarningKick / Temporary Ban
RecruitingRecruiting players for another clan or server.We pay the server, we offer it to you for playing. Using it to advance your own clan via recruitment and thereby abusing our hospitality is not permittedWarningKick / Temporary Ban
Swearing/crude languageRepeated usage of words like "fuck" etceteraDisturbs the servers atmosphereWarningKick / Temporary Ban
Poll abuseEither making multiple polls in a short space of time to change the map, or poll-kicking/banning players without a valid reasonDisturbs the server atmosphereWarningKick / Temporary or Permanent Ban
ImpersonationImpersonating individual players by using their names or modified versions that cannot be differentiated from the real one. Furthermore using clan-tags without being a member of that clan. Depending on the actions perpetrated while using impersonating names, the severity of the response may varyHas the potential of negatively altering the players or clans reputationWarningKick / Temporary or Permanent Ban
Inappropriate NamesWe do not allow inappropriate names on our server. Names may not include discriminatory terms (such as "gay", "nigga", "cunt", "bitch"), may not be insults ("Gavin_is_stupid"), threats ("I_will_rape_you") or be real names of events, persons or things that are criminal or generally seen negatively (such as "Adolf Hitler", but also including serial killers, diseases and so on). If there is any reason to doubt how the name will be perceived or if it would incur administrative overhead, it is probably not a good name. Whether the name is inappropriate will ultimately be decided by the admins, who will ask an affected player to change their name.Disturbs the servers atmosphereRequest to change the nameKick / Temporary or Permanent Ban
Offensive language/insults and harassmentSingular or repeated usage of words like "cunt", "bitch", "whore-son", "rape" and any form of insult like "fuck you", "you bitch" and so forth. Harassment by other means than insults such as tea-bagging and kicking corpses is also forbidden - neither team gains an advantage by doing this, so if someone does kick or tea-bag someone else's body, it is either friendly banter between mates or, when the body is not that of a friend, harassment. If a player is not doing this in a friendly spirit with one of his or her friends, then it is considered harassment. Deciding if it is done in friendly spirit or not is done at the discretion of the admin.Disturbs the servers atmosphereWarningKick / Temporary or Permanent Ban
Arguing with AdminsPlayers may ask for the reason for being kicked, warned etcetera, provided they do so politely and not in a way that insinuates abuse of power ("What the hell do you think you are doing..."). It is not permitted to argue with the admin after the reason for the adminstrative decision has been given. Questioning the rules, admin or his/her decision has no place on our server - do that on our forum or with private messagesDisturbs the servers atmosphere, undermines our authority and abuses our hospitalityWarningKick / Temporary or Permanent Ban
Intentional team-attackingPurposefully attacking players from the same team. This includes kicks, punches and attacks on their horse, i.e. any sort of attack directed at a team-mate. If it is apparent that the team-attacking player attempts to kill several players, the severity of the administrative response increases. Even when an intentional attack does not cause a player to lose health it is a violation of the rules and subject to administrative action.Costs the attacked player health, his life and equipment, weakens the team and disturbs the servers atmosphere. Warning / Permanent BanKick / Permanent Ban
Discrimination (racism, xenophobia, sexism...)Any form of discrimination, be it due to race, nationality, gender, sex or opinion is strictly prohibited. This includes usage of words like "nigger", "gay", "fag" and so on.Severely disturbs the servers atmosphereWarning / Permanent BanKick / Permanent Ban



1 Our definition of "warning":

We warn people when we think they are not aware that their actions are against our rules. For example, if a person says 'I'll rape you!' and from the context it is obvious that the player means 'I'll own you!', an instant kick/ban would not be appropriate, since 'rape' used in that sense on most servers is not against the rules. But on ours it is. Hence, only if the respective player repeats his behaviour, after having been informed/warned that his behaviour is against the rules, a kick/ban is appropriate. But a warning is certainly not meant as 'break the rules once for free, get banned the second time'. When it is obvious that a player breaks the rules recklessly or intentionally, then a kick/ban without further warning is absolutely appropriate. For example when someone joins the server and starts randomly team-killing everyone right at spawn.

A warning does not need to state the action the admin would take if the warning is not heeded. For example someone who is writing in server chat "You dumb idiot" could be warned by an admin writing "No insults" or "Player X, do not insult other players. Please read our rules in the welcome message". It does not need to say "Player X, do not insult or you will be banned".

Hail Istiniar Guards! :)

I'm just writing here (as I thought this would be the appropriate thread) to just ask the possibility of removing the Khergit Khanate from rotation on the battle server.

The Khergits were just on Snowy Village against Rhodoks. By the end of it, the Rhodoks could do naught but camp the barn, with the Khergits camping outside the barn and about five draws followed.

From what I've seen, Khergits are always unbalanced. If there's an open map, they'll annihilate everything, if it's a closed map, they'll be annihilated. Of course this trend can be reversed, but this generally requires that one of the team is stacked to a ridiculous degree.

I have also seen the server population fall from around 40 to around 20 when the Khergits come onto rotation.

As always, thank you for providing the wonderful server,

BD Alexander ( <img=ico_pistol> )

Any idea what faction-number the Khergits have?

Just a minute ago we still had Khergits. Does the server has to be restarted?

Probably, yes. Maybe Illuminati or Lugh can do that tonight when it's empty.

Could we also take this idiotic town map out? It's totally unbalanced, bugged and has the same effect as Khergits on the player numbers.

I didn't get round to restarting the server before, but it's all done now (since the 19th I think).

Let us know if this Khergit issue persists. It's odd that they appeared so often.

I was in BG yesterday evening, and I don't know what the hell was going on, but everyone was teamkilling. It was epic, 8-10 TK in a round. I don't know it was an accident or it was rageteamkill, but there was lots of rage-ban-polls, cause of teamkilling. So it was terrible...
