Thank you Gm @Voodoo, as you can see here, it was a solid 30 minutes since last shots were fired on our behalf. I was, to my memory, the last CDF personelle to engage with the hostiles.
Now I cannot log from the server after 30 minutes due to combat logging that is true, but after scanning the rules section a few times, I have yet to find the rule stating you cannot switch servers.
It has came to my assumption that all the people who we were fighting were either killed or moved off since we ran across open fields limping to get back to our base. After 30 minutes, we finally make it back home to the Hospital. The entire point of the run from Myshkino -> Berezino was to get to the hospital. The only issue was it was on S1, and after checking OOCly to make sure we haven't gotten shot at in a while, the few of us that remain decide it's time to switch servers and go to the server where our base was at the time.
You state that I 'switched servers to avoid kill rights' as if we were still an active firefight. Had I of known it was a fight, of course I would of stayed on the server.
My only issue with this report being reopened is the fact that we are overlooking the part of where we have people rejoining this 3+ hour long firefight. As you see @Real VegasRP rejoin the fight after dying at the initial attack(06:50:09) in these logs here:
and him rejoining at ~08:30:00 to get back into the same situation where he died again. After having 3+ fresh spawns run into us at Novy where we were engaged a 3rd time during our journey, and seeing said fresh spawns running up the hill towards the shooters seen on Stannis' map, I can only assume there was more than on instance of them breaking NLR.
How are we to blame for 'abusing mechanics' when the hostile persons somehow knew of the server change anyway? How they know is still a big question mark, but the fact still remains that @ZorullRP switched servers to use his attacking rights on someone who was not part of the initiation( @Phoenyxx ). With the 1h timer of attacker rights, ontop of the fact the only people initiated on by Pamyati seen in Stannis' video at 00:50 was the Mafia and CDF, the Wolf Packe was already over 100m away when they initiated, so the excuse of how they got attackers rights on them is sure to come, but doubtfully relevant.
The fight lasted 5 minutes shy of 3 hours, CDF alone killed 14+ people not including how every many kills the Mafia/Wolfe Pack got on their journey. You already see that they are willing, and we're actively breaking rule 3.4, the NLR rule. So how are we to expect, after 3 hours, and a hell of a lot of bodies later, that we are /still/ being hunted down after all that time. So we assumed after 30 minutes of noone shooting, since it's past the combat logging time, that we were fine. Nowhere in the rules do I see a 'cannot switch servers' rule, nor have I ever seen a report where someone has gotten banned for it. We thought the fight was over, as I already stated, if we knew we were still in an active firefight, with someone coming in 30 minutes after the last shot to shoot someone in the head sitting on a bench, then I would of just stayed on the server and fought back as we had for the LAST 3 hours.
If you can show a me a precedent, or a rule that specify's that switching servers is 'abuse of mechanics', then please do point me in the direction. But we were simply following the combat logging rules, and switched over to S1 where our base was. There was no foul play attempted on our behalf. We simply wanted to sit down and roleplay with our new neighbor who just moved in.
Why my neck is even on the line here is asinine, the accused are the one's breaking NLR, switching servers, and killing someone sitting on the ground roleplaying an injury. We are here to have fun, be fair, and roleplay. My roleplay was sufficed to nothing but 'okay run here' and 'pew pew pew' for 3 solid hours because people wanted to prioritize the pvp over the RP in this situation. Instead of sitting and roleplaying out injuries after a grueling run and fight, we were instead greated with a JFK and someone sprinting into the darkness.
If we want to play technical on what can and cannot happen based on rule's, then we can go even more into it. Look at the last shot on me at Myshkino(the initial fight, ~06:50:00 ingame time), then look at the first hit on me after this fight. Probably over an hour, thus having Pamyati lose their attackers rights.
