Rules for #ctfpickup

Here are the simple pickup rules for your playing pleasure.

Channel Rules
  • No aliasing or faking! Not on IRC and not on Quakelive.
  • Joining the playquake network channels means you agree to abide by all of the rules
  • Use an IRC nickname similar to your Quakelive nick so people can recognise you or at very least inform people of who you are
  • Quakelive players who have a pro subscription can get +v (voice) in the playquake channels
  • Only English is allowed in the channel
  • Don't insult or harass others - I.e. Racism, verbal abuse, accusations
  • No excessive trolling
  • Don't post links that refer to viruses, phishing sites or obscene material

Pickup Rules
  • Adding to a pickup means you agree to abide by all of the rules
  • Players with a standard (free) Quakelive account are allowed to play, but are obligated to arrange their invite before the game starts - Anyone who promised an invite & intentionally doesn't follow through will be punished
  • We expect you to join the server within 5minutes of the server link being posted
  • Cheating is not allowed & since there isn't currently anti-cheat protection, we obligate every player to set "cg_autoaction 3" as default to ensure that if asked by a staff member to send us your demo, you're able to.

Server settings for CTF ONLY!

  • Password: ctf (it saves a lot of time)
  • Quad: 3x
  • Spawn protection: off
  • Ramp jumping: off
  • Damage through floors: off
  • Powerups: enabled
  • No changes to gravity

You could be locked out for 1hour for any of the following

  • Continuing to talk in other languages after you have been warned, can result in a 1hour lock out - English only in channel please!
  • Neglecting to communicate with your team mates can result in a 1hour lock out - If your team is trying to sort positions using teamchat you're expected to contribute / reply

You could be locked out for 1day for any of the following

  • We expect you to join the server within 5minutes of the server link being posted - Failure to join or failure to arrange a substitute can result in a no show 1day lock out
  • Standard (free) Quakelive players who aren't able to get invited within 5minutes after the server URL has been posted will be treated like any other player who doesn’t show up & can result in a 1 day lock out
  • Disconnecting from the server before the game is over can result in a ragequit, 1day lock out

You could also be locked out for any of the following

  • If people feel offended by you due to abuse by you, you can expect a lock out
  • If people complain about your trolling, you can expect a lock out
  • If people complain about you for intentionally ruining a pickup, you can expect a lock out
  • Evading a lock out simply makes your lock out last longer, so don't
  • Recording demos from every pickup game is mandatory & admins may lock out you if you’re not able to upload your demo without good reasoning
  • Admins may extend the period of a lock out when a player is repeatedly breaking one or more rules and where necessary, permanently lock out the user
  • Admins reserve the right to add or remove a lock out where they see fit. No bribes allowed, not even large wades of cash, right? However, if you feel you've been locked out & shouldn't have been, please do query an admin and let them know (no trolling please!). Even the perfect admins at Playquake make mistakes - I know shocking right?!

Last but by no means least, please have fun & enjoy yourselves - we're here to make your gaming enjoyable & hopefully trouble-free.
