What the rule on this?

Question

Glitch    15

These two guys robbed some people at GM. After the robbery went down they ran out of there and behind them another group of people that were hiding listening to the robbery. They never made contact with the robbers but chased behind them and killed them. The robbers had no idea they were there. With that said, would this be considered RDM or where do you go about to figure this out? I didn't see much on revenge rules, like killing the criminal right after witnessing the crime.

And after they opened fire on the robbers would the robbers friends who aren't being shot be able to shoot their friends attackers? Or would that too be RDM because the friends who aren't being fired upon didn't make direct hostile contact with the "vigilantes"?

If those people that killed the robbers were part of the group, they gained KoS rights. Because of the image above.

If they weren't part of the group, then it would be KoS. Not RDM.

Now, because the robbers are being shot at from these guys, they can fire back. They now gained KoS rights and they are defending themselves.

Just so you know, back in the mod days there was this rule that if you saw someone getting robbed you were allowed to kill the robber, this rule was called the Good Samaritan Rule. This rule has been removed since the migration to DayZ: Standalone.

Well since we only have your POV there might be facts that we don't know about, maybe the attackers had KOS rights on the robbers that you don't know about.

But yes, if they weren't a part of your group, didn't make contact and initiated before shooting them, it would be classified as KoS.

Have your question been answered Teletub7?

If said people that were killed feel that a rule was broken, then we would encourage them to file a report.  This way everyone's view is told and the staff team can render a verdict.
