I'd like to make a couple of things clear regarding the accusations against Operation: Yggdrasil. 1. The Execution of Baron: As said by Gareth himself, you spotted someone in all black running away from the compound and then jumped into helpdesk where you received the metagamed information. I'd like to make it clear that none of us dressed in all black, so the person you saw wasn't even one of us. Now having never seen us during the attack, and having never verified it was us, you proceeded to use the metagamed information from Helpdesk to execute Baron, there is simply no way around it. 2. Demands: The only demands we heard from you were to surrender and stop shooting.. surrendering is a unreasonable demand and would simply lead to us being killed, therefore it would be classed as NVFL for our characters... something about Humvee's were heard but nothing concrete was said, and even if you demanded a new Humvee thats another unreasonable demand.. For long periods of time we heard nothing from you and the whole situation never seemed like a hostage situation more than you just having him for your own sake. 3. The act of letting the hostage go: I'd like to know a bit more about this. AFAIK the hostage was about to be let go when you decided to use the meta gamed information from help desk to simply yeet him out of existence, essentially putting the hours of role play you all just had to waste. If you were about to let the hostage go, and you didn't know the shooters, then you couldn't possibly have known it was us? Therefore you have to have meta gamed the information from help desk and used it to execute him. 4.
@G_DateLR's POV proves that this was indeed meta-gaming.
You saw an individual in all black running away, this was neither me or my companion, you then proceeded to go into help desk and have me dragged in there during an active situation, in help desk you then have it confirmed that we were indeed attacking, and you then proceed to execute Baron after learning this information through help desk, which is very definition of meta gaming.
As for the case of being pulled into HD during an active situation, I think it is lousy and unsportsmanlike to pull someone into help desk during an active situation, you should have waited until after the situation was over in order to prevent cases of meta-gaming like this, while I cannot hold @JobScholten at fault as he likely wasn't informed that it was an active situation, I can say that @G_DateLR should have known better.
