Rules for playing ut99 online (silly version)

Post by EvilGrins » Sat Jul 21, 2012 8:28 pm

Anyone that's played online has probably thought there should be some general rules for how all players should handle themselves when interacting with others. In more frustrating times, everybody's probably thought of rules that were completely innappropriate but seemed to fit your more stressed mindset.

This is the place for those rules. Please share your most ridiculous thoughts of how online play should go, number them however you like.

Rule #1: Do not shoot people on your own team unless they annoy you.

That's beautiful!

Rule #4: Lots of servers say that the admins are always watching. This isn't actually true as you can get away with just about anything if you want.
Rule #5: Although, occasionally the admins actually are watching. So, don't push your luck.

EDIT---------------------------------------------------- by papercoffee

Rule #8: Do not use foul language ingame unless it is absolutely necessary.
Rule #9: Using foul language ingame is often necessary.

Rule #11: Don't complain about the server when you miss your own shots.
Rule #12: Never say your team sucks (as you're saying you suck as well).
Rule #13: Don't try to snipe on ridiculously long distances (it just won't work with the standard sniper, the bullet won't reach the objective, unless it's a modded sniper which extends that limit).
Rule #14: Idem for all the other weapons (even projectile based, they have a limited lifetime).
Rule #15: Don't taunt-spam.
Rule #16: Don't try to spawnkill, let the spawn protection end its effect first lol.
Rule #17: Don't camp, change your sniping location after 3 or 5 minutes.
Rule #18: In CTF don't play DM, just defend your teammates.
Rule #19: When you use aliases, you're not anonymous (the admins will know *exactly* who you are).
Rule #20: There's no such thing as "just trying a cheat".
Rule #21: Don't try to reproduce UT in real-life, people won't respawn and say "nice shot".

I figured since the two posts were like 4 hours apart it was okay. With that much of a timegap that cannot still be double-posting, can it?

Those two rule... no pun intended.

Rule #26: If you get killed by someone else while trying to shoot those endlessly circling birds, you're not allowed to complain.

Nope ...if there is a gap with more than 2 days, then we can turn a blind eye to this :wink:

Rule #28: What an Admin says is law ...even if you don't understand it because he mumbles it with the mouth full in his crappy 2$ headset.
