Does the No Value For Life rule also apply to companions travelling with you?

Question

Let's say you're travelling with a buddy to the NWAF. On you way there you get robbed by three bandits. They surround your friend aiming their guns at him, whilst you see an opportunity to gun them down. However, by doing so the chance that your companion gets killed is pretty high. Do the bandits have a possible case of NVFL to take to the report section?

Thanks,

MM

If your friend is initiated on and you shoot at the captors, they don't get kos rights on your friend and only on you. If your friend were to shoot back at them, then they would get kos rights on him.

The situation you described is a 2 v 3 basically. Is it NVFL? Hard to tell. The rule is really situational and it depends on tons of factors. If you really want an answer I'd say it is not NVFL.

So you do not value your friends life instead of your own?

Yeah, basically. He'll die because you wanted to keep the gear

And where is the RP in that? You might kill 3 robbers, but get your friend killed and nobody is allowed to remember those events.

It's a very risky play, while your friend if he complies is "protected" by the rules and you open fire, they may just very well gun down your friend.

Common sense would be "If I shoot those guys my mate is probably going to get shot." so unless you can gat all three at once I would not personally suggest it but people tend to panic once they get shot at so a lot of factors can go in to it.

Let's be honest. If they are truly your friend, you would value their life regardless right?

Remember that any hostile encounter that doesn't end up in a firefight is a great way of forming your character.

Character development is the key here. Think to yourself if it is really worth losing your friends life, your own life (possibly) and all possible character development in this case. If you chose not to shoot them, you will have RP and memories to take out of it.

Hello MisterMartijn from the following answers from people on this thread do you think that your question has been answered.?

If you are with a buddy and he gets surround and told to drop his shit you know how it goes but there lest say 6 of them and there is 2 of you then do not ! take the chance to gun them down because you know the first bullet that you are going to shot and kill maybe one of them and then rest will run for there life's or most likely kill your friend because they know that this person eg: You is not shooting at them for no reason and they are going to be thinking that you are with them so of course they are going to shoot him and then find you and kill you but on the other hand if there is only lest say one then go a head and shot. There is no way that this man who is trying to rob your friend is going to get out alive if you are there in a bush.

Hope this answer your question and again do you think mine or any other reply's have answered your question if so then please say thank you

NVFL is can very much be a rule dependent on circumstance and situation, but with the situation you describe (in my personal opinion, not necessarily staff's opinion) it sounds like it would be NVFL. 

No Value for Life can extend to your friends and allies, if you know that they will die should you continue with a certain action or otherwise put their life in danger. In a fairly recent report, a player was banned for throwing a grenade at a building with an ally held hostage inside, as it was considered NVFL. 

Coming back to the situation you describe, it sounds like your friend is in no position to fight back as he is surrounded by three armed men. As you said yourself, the chances he gets killed is very high. If you decide to open fire on the bandits (that outnumber you in effectively a 1 v 3) you know that your friend will likely die and as such, I personally believe that this would constitute NVFL. Additionally, there is a high chance that you yourself would be killed which could potentially constitute NVFL in itself.

With the above said, I will /solve this thread. If you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to contact a community helper.
