Genesis Epoch Rules are enforced by the Admins to the best of their ability. You should respect the authority of admins to evaluate and decide when rules have been violated. We will always try to be fair and promote balanced gameplay. Any player caught breaking the rules may be banned for a period of time depending on the severity of the players actions. It is the exclusive right of the admins to make these decisions based on evidence provided and what can be extrapolated from circumstance. If you feel the admin is not being fair you can contact the server owners on Teamspeak/Discord or the forum to have the situation reviewed further. We highly recommend you use a video recording software such as Shadow Play (™) . These recordings can make fast work of resolving conflict. Our rules were designed so everyone can enjoy their time on Genesis Epoch. Above all else……. Have FUN!

F. Player Etiquette and Good Sportsmanship
Be respectful to Server Admins and do your part to help resolve server and in game issues. Keep in mind that they are donating their time to help protect and insure fair game play. The job of the Admin can be difficult, time consuming, and often thankless.
If you have an issue with an Admin please take the time to report it on forum to the Server Managers or Server Owners.
Being a good player goes a long way to helping making a great gaming experience for yourself and for others. Help when you can in game. For example, Questions in side chat… Someone needs something you have and don't need.. Help out. You kill someone and you don't need that gear.. Let them know it's there and your not taking it. We all have personality differences and conflict will arise… try to understand the other person's perspective and resolve issues without admin intervention when you can..
If you suspect someone of breaking the rules tell an Admin either in game or on teamspeak.
Safe zone Camping:
Systematically utilizing the area of the safe zone to harvest kills and players gear.
Safe Zone Abuse:
Moving in and out of safezone and using it’s God Mode protection during combat. Once you enter combat you can not return to safe zone for protection.
Safe Zone Griefing:
Excessive Harassment of other players
Using a safezone to remove yourself from a combat situation already in progress
Note: If a player is out of site or not in firing range for a period of 1 min then combat can be considered to be over.
Non-Allowed vehicles can attack your base if you are in the middle of a combat situation and you return to your base to avoid combat to kill player or destroy evading vehicle.
To be noted, if an unarmed small vehicle e.g a mozzie flees to the safezone because it's being attacked by an armed vehicle it will not be counted as Combat Avoidance. As the vehicle/player can't defend itself.
Running an air vehicle into a land vehicle, person, or another air vehicle, or a base. This is not allowed.
- No VEHICLE Suicides except Chukar/BQM74 into Bases, Vehicles and Players
Running a ground vehicle into a land vehicle, person, or another land vehicle, an air vehicle that is on the ground, or a base. This is allowed.
Is handled by a script and doesn’t need any additional ban or punishment.
Vehicles allowed to attack bases ( see our the additional list)
Note: Corralled or fenced areas that are non roofed and clearly not part of the base main structure are not to be protected by our base attack rule. This includes but not limited to helipad areas for deploying vehicles. Any players or vehicles in these areas are open to attack and destruction
These are the vehicles with which you may attack a base UNPROVOKED. (see allowed list) If the vehicle is not on this list your NOT allowed to use it on a base unless base owners have shot at you first. The disallowed vehicles may attack a base if, and only if attacked first. But only the vehicle that was attacked can return fire. Not another member of a team or another vehicle. You may only kill the offending player or player team. You are not allowed to then use this vehicle to then RAID.
For clarification ask an admin.
Note: Non-Allowed vehicles can attack your base if you are in the middle of a combat situation and you return to your base to avoid combat to kill player or destroy evading vehicle..
