Detailed Rules List:
1 "DO NOT GO NEAR THE ENEMY'S FIRST UNCAPPED / GREY FLAG AT ROUND START!.": Do not rush the enemy's first grey / uncapped flag at the start of a map, you may only approach it if the AAS marker says so. If you can spawn on/near a grey flag then that is allowed. Clearing out flags and then moving on is fine once all flags are capped at round start, but prolonged "camping" is not acceptable.


2 "DO NOT INSULT OTHER PLAYERS.": Do not insult any other player. Discrimination, racism and flaming is not tolerated.

2.1 "DO NOT PROVOKE OTHER PLAYERS.": Do not provoke other people. You are not allowed to shoot them, push them of ledges, make them hurt themselves, etc.

3 "DO NOT TEAMKILL.": Do not deliberately kill your own team mates, destroy team assets, FOBs or anything that can be counted as an asset to your team. Remember, it's up to you too watch out for your tripmines/traps! Always apologise for any teamkills, they do happen!

3.1 "DO NOT FORCE A TEAMKILL.": Do not force a player to teamkill you or anyone. Do not stand infront of vehicles blocking them, etc.

4 "DO NOT FLY UNLESS YOU HAVE EXPERIENCE.": Don't know how to fly? Don't do it. Go to our training server instead, IP & Port can be found on our homepage.

     4.1 "DO NOT USE TRANSPORT HELICOPTERS AS CAS. " : Do not use transport helicopters as CAS, engaging enemies on your direct route to your appointed destination is allowed, if the pilot says it is ok.

5 "NAME YOUR SQUAD AFTER ITS JOB/ROLE EG. APC SQUAD, INF SQUAD.": If you're going to use a heavy asset name your squad accordingly, first named squad ALWAYS has priority on said asset, if you want to use a reserved vehicle, ask the squad, if they do not reply DO NOT take it.
If you're going infantry it is not neccesary to name your squad 'Infantry or INF', however it does make it easier for people finding your squad and joining it.

5.1 "NAME YOUR SQUAD AFTER ITS JOB/ROLE EG. APC SQUAD, INF SQUAD.": The Sniper/HAT/AA kit are not included as assets. Naming your squad after one of those does not give you priority use over it.
Furthermore leave those kits to the people that needs it, do not carry it around just because you like it. Using a kit improperly is unacceptable.

6 "DO NOT USE A HEAVY ASSET ALONE.": Using a heavy asset alone, such as one-manning a tank is not acceptable. If your driver/gunner gets killed or loses connection immediately return it to its spawn location or your teams mainbase.

6.1 "DO NOT USE A VEHICLE AS TAXI."
Furthermore this rules also includes driving vehicles out and abandoning them. Do not use a vehicle as a taxi, ask someone else if they could drive you there. If they do not wish to you still cannot use a vehicle as taxi.
Only grab a vehicle if you know your squad is going to use it or there is a very high possibility you will need to use it.

6.2 "RAMMING/ROADKILLS.": Swerving to hit an enemy who is on the road in front of you is allowed. Actually turning (as in changing direction through roughly 90 degrees) is NOT allowed and will result in a kick/temp ban. Doing doughnuts round and round to hit an enemy will result in a perm ban. THIS IS NOT GTA!

7 "DO NOT CREATE A SQUAD BEFORE 2:00.": Never create a squad until the countdown timer has reached 2:00, doing so might cause the squad bug on your/enemies team forcing a server restart.
Doing this on purpose will invoke a permanent ban without any possibility of appealing on the forums.

8 "DO NOT USE HEAVY ASSETS BEFORE 14V14.": Do not use any heavy assets (APCs, tanks, attack helicopters, etc.) until there are 14 people on each side.

9 "DO NOT ATTACK MAINBASES WITH ANYTHING.": This goes for all maps. The only exception is the Insurgents that are allowed to fire on mainbases with small arms. This does not include(mortar, suicide vehicles, explosives etc). Basically you can use your rifle and that is it.

10 "DO NOT DISRUPT GAMEPLAY.": This rule includes anything and everything that disrupts gameplay. Examples: Mining bridges leading out of main bases, camping near mainbases, camp the main or only accesses leading out of main bases, jeopardizing assets, bunnyhopping, griefing friendlies and so on. Play the game the way u want the enemies to play against you, and use your brain! (We here at =MeRk= hope you have one at least.)

11 "PLEASE USE A PROPER NAME ON THE SERVER.": This rule applies to everyone who joins =MeRk= servers, Having a name like " ..... " or "0o0o0o0o0o" will either get you kicked or banned. We want to know who is playing and having names such as those is unacceptable.

12 "YOU MUST JOIN A SQUAD / DO NOT STEAL LIMITED KITS FROM A SQUAD." : You must join a squad before or immediately after you spawn or you may be kicked. Do not join a squad to steal a kit.
Example : Joining a squad taking an AR, a sniper, HAT or another limited kit and then leaving that squad. This can result in the sqaud not being able to function as they wished to.
Advice: When joining a squad, ask your SL what kit he needs you to take. Listen to your SL and try to follow his orders. Try not to spam communications as he maybe trying to talk to other SL's about the enemy.

13  "SQUAD LEADERS MUST COMMUNICATE AND WORK FOR THE TEAM. "  SL must keep the squad together, and kick those who fail to comply. SL must communicate with other SL's and Commander. The server language is English.  As SL, if your squad is not attacking or defending a cappable flag, you had better have a good reason. Taking 8 men away from the action is a large percentage of the infantry force. At round start, Trans squad takes squads to flag caps only. If you want to build a megaFOB or go SpecOps away from flags you have to wait till the transport helicopter or Supply Truck is idle. If a flag needs defending take responsibility. Use comms and get a heli ride. SL's who won't play for the team may be resigned. 

14. "AT ROUND START, TRANS AND SUPPLY TRUCK PRIORITY GOES TO CAPPING FLAGS"  If you are flying trans, don't take squads anywhere but close to flags at round start. It doesn't have to be right on the flag, you may need to build outside cap radius for example. Use !r to report squads that won't leave your helicopter. At round start unless you are the Mortar Squad, don't take a Supply Truck inless you are going to build near a cappable flag.

15 "YOU MUST HAVE A WORKING MICROPHONE"  And you must use it. PR is about teamwork, so communicate!
