@Krullix | Baiting | Guilty

@ImBlisna | Attempted Invalid Kill | Guilty
@ImNovaaa | Ruleplay | Guilty
To start with we will address the accusation of baiting against @Krullix, @Hampze & @ImNathan.
The three of you are discovered attempting to jump over the wall of the compound and are subsequently told to stop. You do not stop and instead continue your attempt to get in. You are told multiple times to stop and yet you persist with your attempts until you are eventually initiated on. The behaviour you display is extremely unrealistic and borderline bad RP as you are well aware that nothing can be done to stop you until an initiation is dropped, hence why you continue to try and get over the fence. Your actions left the OP with no other option but to initiate on you and as such, we consider this a standard example of baiting for which you will all be given the standard punishment. Rule 4.7 is extremely clear regarding this behaviour as seen here: Whilst we understand your intention of gaining access to the compound and then dropping an initiation of your own, don't. This is a good plan when you go undiscovered but when you are found out and told to stop trying to gain access, repeated attempts at doing so can be viewed as baiting like in this situation.
@Hampze you were well aware that this report was going up as you spoke to the OP in discord beforehand. Despite the knowledge of this, you elected to delete your recording of the situation because "it was taking so much space" and instead use a 1 minute long clip as evidence here in the report. Why you decided to do this we do not really understand. If the video was taking up "so much space" then you could have uploaded it in its entirety for use in the report and deleted the raw file after which would free up your harddrive space whilst still permitting the complete video evidence to be reviewed by staff. Whilst you have not lied in the report, you have tampered with video evidence is grouped under the rulebreak of Lying In A Report. Due to the fact you have been found guilty of this as well as baiting you are being given the higher punishment of 15 warning points with your 7 day ban.
@ImNathan & @ImBlisna after the initiation is baited from the OP, within minutes the both of you are seen in the hit logs to have landed shot at people. The hits you landed are classed as attempted invalid kills and you will be given the standard punishment for this. The rules are clear, if we look at rule 4.3 we see the following: The rule actually lists baiting as an example of a rulebreak which does not grant kill rights on those responsible or their allies. To have prevented this punishment, before opening fire you should have legitimately initiated in order to gain valid kill rights on any non-compliant parties.
Finally we have @ImNovaaa
Later on during this situation, you shoot and kill @CapitalistNick. This is after he is lured by @ImMason & @ImChips on an apparent "hunt" for you. Whilst we find nothing necessarily wrong with him being lured away from the compound to look for you, we do find fault in the fact that you gun him down from 187 metres away and nearly 3 hours after the hostilities first began. He is with two of your friends and the three of you together outnumber him. The three of you could have quite easily captured him, taken him away enjoyed some fun and engaging roleplay but the chance of this was destroyed when you opted instead for the quick kill, just because you have rights. Rule 4.3 states the following: "obtaining kill rights alone does not give you explicit permission to use them any time you want and in all situations."
You knew that this man was after you which, when you have the opportunity to take him hostage, gives you a great reason to along with a great avenue to explore whilst roleplaying with him as your hostage. Instead of entertaining this idea you chose to place your kill rights over roleplay and as such, you will receive the standard punishment for ruleplay.
If you are wondering why we have chosen to review this situation in this report instead of having @CapitalistNick open a report of his own, that is because we have the ability to make that decision. Given your history in the report section, we decided it would be easier to do so in this report. We assume you agree with our decision as you you state here, "unless staff wants to handle this here which is cool too".
With the above stated, the following applies
@Krullix | Baiting | 5 Day Ban + 10 Warning Points + Character Reset
@Hampze | Baiting + Lying In A Report | 7 Day Ban + 15 Warning Points + Character Reset
@ImNathan | Baiting + Attempted Invalid Kill | 5 Day Ban + 10 Warning Points + Character Reset
@ImBlisna | Attempted Invalid Kill | 2 Day Ban + 10 Warning Points + Character Reset
@ImNovaaa | Ruleplay | 5 Day Ban + 10 Warning Points + Character Reset
The punishments given to @ImNathan & @ImNovaaa put them at or above 30 warning points which results in their permanent removal from the community.
