Hello and welcome to Britannia Gaming Communities rules. In order to maintain a high quality experience for our members, we have community rules which all members must abide by. Please take time to read the information on this page to ensure you have the best experience on our community servers. We must have strict rules, this allows us to maintain a high standard of professionalism on our servers.
We are a very friendly community, as we consider ourselves to be an adult community we expect all members to respect other members and the staff team. If you are unsure about a rule, speak to an administrator to prevent getting in trouble. Please be aware these are the official rules, if you are told different please disregard it unless you’ve been told by a member of the staff team otherwise.
Section 1 In-Game Rules
(1.0) Vehicle Deathmatch also known as VDM - This means using any vehicle as a weapon, for example, running down civilians or causing explosions. Ramming someone's vehicle is allowed if it is role-played out i.e. attempting to rob someone but they drive off. (Punishable by a ban which may be permanent.)
(1.1) Random Deathmatch (also known as RDM) - Shooting at or killing someone without engaging in any form of quality role-play. If you attempt to rob someone you must give them enough time to comply with your order(s). Countdowns are not considered quality role-play. You must attempt to create an interesting roleplay story before you consider shooting. To shoot/kill anyone without a valid role-play reason is considered RDM. (Punishable by a ban which may be permanent.)
(1.2) Combat logging at any point during role-play is exploiting. Some examples of this include: logging out during a firefight, being chased by the police, arrested by the police, while dead awaiting a medic, logging out in order to save gear, rage-quitting, logging out whilst restrained/detained (Punishable by a ban which may be permanent.) *If you must leave the game due to real life you need to contact an admin.*
(1.3) Trolling - The following examples are considered trolling, however, there are multiple others so we advise common sense. Running around the police/medics/anyone, throwing yourself in front of vehicles, playing music in any chat or on teamspeak, bombarding the messaging system, jumping off buildings without a valid role-play reason. (Punishable by a ban which may be permanent.)

(2.2) Metagaming is using information from an external source I.e. Teamspeak. Only information gathered within the game can be used.
(2.3) Initiating in roleplay means that you need to plan your actions and have a reason for your actions. Doing something without a valid role-play reason is fail RP. For Example, engaging a vehicle that drives past you and saying you were gonna rob them is failure to role-play.
