@ScarRP - Ruleplay (Not Guilty) @YNW Dusty - Baiting (Not Guilty) | NVFL (Guilty) | False Report (Guilty)
@ScarRP and @YNW Dusty happen upon one another in the night. @YNW Dusty keeps on moving, closely followed by @ScarRP. They eventually meet another group nearby, there @YNW Dusty tries to have the group help him initiate on @ScarRP; @YNW Dusty quickly realized that the group was allied with @ScarRP and tried to leave. With @ScarRP still on his heel, @YNW Dusty turns back and punches him in the face, leading to @ScarRP promptly killing him.
Let's address the rules that were mentioned in this report. Baiting: @YNW Dusty is not guilty of baiting since he did not attempt to gain kill rights from this situation.
4.7 You may not bait other players into situations where you provoke the player into using hostile actions and then using kill rights to kill them. This is known as baiting.
NVFL: @YNW Dusty, you punched an individual having clear hostile intentions against you while said individual was carrying an assault-rifle in his hands. This unrealistic behaviour shows that you cared very little for your character well-being.
3.2 Your character must behave realistically and appropriately to the different situations you participate in, keeping the current world situation and context of post-apocalyptic world in mind. Do not act in a way that indicates no value for your characters life and survival. For example, attempting to kill people when heavily outnumbered, excessively talking back or insulting someone when taken hostage, or knowingly running into an area of active hostile engagement when not involved in the fight. Characters found guilty of breaking this rule will be permanently marked as dead.
The staff team has deemed this case not to be ruleplay, to do otherwise would create a loophole. We cannot allow for situations where people with rifles are unable to defend themselves from punches because it's considered ruleplay. It's not ruleplay either, since one is always allowed to defend oneself when attacked.
3.3 You may not focus on out of character gains to the detriment of RP. For example, "rule play" is prioritizing things like kill rights or OOC information above more appropriate IC actions or behavior. Always prioritize role play over rule play.
False report: @YNW Dusty, you will be found guilty of filing a false report. You punched a man with an assault-rifle in his hands and allies in direct vicinity. While you might have been surprised that you got killed, the fact remains that you put a report up despite being the first person in the situation to start hostilities.
@ScarRP - Ruleplay (Not Guilty) - No action taken. @YNW Dusty - Baiting (Not Guilty) | NVFL (Guilty) | False Report (Guilty) - 7 day ban, 15 warning points leading to the permanent removal from the community.
