@-CML-NorWayy - Invalid Kill/Lying in a report - Guilty
@Squillium - False report - Not guilty
@Squillium is at Tisy Summer Camp where @-CML-NorWayy initiates on him and proceeds to rob him and take him as a hostage with @Zorull. They warn the people in the camp that any shots towards them will result in the death of @Squillium. After they leave the camp, the Revenants in the camp utilised their defender rights and opened fire on @Zorull and @-CML-NorWayy at which point a gunfight breaks out and @Squillium is killed.
Now, to address the rule breaks. @-CML-NorWayy We understand that you warned the people in the camp not to shoot at you or @Zorull lest @Squillium be killed, however this is not a valid demand, as the people who shot and killed you were not part of Dredgens, @Squillium's group, therefore you did not gain execution rights on @Squillium when they opened fire on you. Had this been a Dredgens member, it would be different, and your kill would be considered valid however this was not the case. As per the rules, you can only give demands like the ones you gave in the camp, to approved group members of the hostage, and can only execute people if the approved group they are a part of, opens fire on you or your demands in a negotiation are not met.
Finally, you will be found guilty for lying in a report, as you insist at the end of the video, you were waking up. However, you shoot Squillium at 1:56 after you are shot at and kill him at 1:58 when you announce his death. The logs however show you were knocked out 6 seconds later after killing Squillium, as well as 6 seconds later in the video. At this point, you would not have woken back up for 36 seconds like the logs show us. However, you claim throughout the report that you woke back up at the end of the clip, only 19 seconds later. Even though there is a delay between waking up and the logs showing you regaining consciousness, it is not a 17 second delay.
However, as for the metagaming accusation, due to the lack of evidence, and the video cutting out mid sentence in the video, combined with the POV's of what happened after word being Word vs Word, we do not have enough evidence to determine the scale of which Norway may have metagamed, as the video cuts out mid sentence, and as such, this will be marked as inconclusive. However, in future, please keep rule 3.3 in mind for future situations.
As for the counter report, we see no reason to punish @Squillium for false report. As you say Norway, you covered letting his dynamic allies know that if they shoot at you, then @Squillium will be killed yet they shot at you anyway. This was their choice, and @Squillium cannot be faulted for their decision to open fire on you.
The rules which support the verdict can be found below:
4.6 If you successfully capture a player through a hostile action and then take him into your custody, he is now considered your hostage. You must do everything in your power to keep your hostages alive and in a relatively good health. That includes protecting them from external threats like zombies and leaving them with a realistic chance of survival when they are released. A character that is taken hostage may be executed once for a hostile incident that happened in the past where the hostage was personally responsible for, or participated in a death of your ally. In any other circumstances, hostages may only be executed in the following scenarios:
Hostages do not comply with your demands after repeated requests or try to escape.
Hostages pose a direct threat to you or your group, for example by picking up a weapon when not allowed to.
Hostages do not value their life, for example they repeatedly talk back or insult you despite being told to stop.
Approved group of the hostage refuses to negotiate or opens fire on hostage takers.
Demands from negotiations with approved group of the hostage have not been met after a reasonable time has elapsed.
I would however like to make a note that there was an opportunity for more potential roleplay here, as there were only two aggressors and at least an equal number of Revenants. You could have tried to negotiate with @-CML-NorWayy @Zorull and perhaps attempt to bribe them or convince them to let @Squillium go.
@-CML-NorWayy - Invalid kill (roleplayed)/Lying in a report - Guilty - 7 day ban and 10 warning points
- Metagaming - Inconclusive
