ClanHBS ARMA 3 Rules of Engagement

Version 1.0


1. Scope of the Rules of Engagement

This document is to serve as a complete compendium to the rules of the servers. This document contains all rules of the server in which the document was written for. If it is not listed in this document it does not exist and is not enforceable. Each rule will have specific definitions of the rule as well as elaborating the specified intent of the rule along with examples to help clarify the rules true intent. By the end of this document, no questions should be remaining as to what the rule meant and how it applies to the player.

2. ARMA 3 - Public Server Rules
  • No fratricide.
  • No destruction of friendly equipment.
  • All pilots must be on TeamSpeak 3.
  • All Aircraft / Artillery support must be on call.
  • Weapons safe on base.
3. Specific definitions of ARMA 3 - Public Server Rules

The following is a numbered list of all server rules that are in accordance to the list of section 2. Each rule will have a subsection explaining the intentions of the rule and specific cases of the rule.
  • No fratricide.
    • Fratricide, n, Latin for brother killing, and is used to describe 'friendly fire', or commonly called 'TKing' or 'Team Killing';
    • This means the purposeful or accidental killing of another player;

    Spirit of the rule - This rule is a pretty run-of-the-mill for team-based FPS ( First Person Shooter ) games. It's universally considered in bad taste and bad form. It makes the game not fun to be shot in the back. The idea is to have fun, not have to worry about a chaotic free for all.
  • No destruction of friendly equipment.
    • This includes purposeful and accidental occurrences;
    • This includes all actions other than enemy fire: crashing, using explosives and shooting;

    Spirit of the rule - This rule is similar in spirit to the first rule. There's already enough concern with the enemy trying to wax that armor or aviation asset.
  • All pilots must be on TeamSpeak 3.
    • This means the pilot of any aircraft;
    • TeamSpeak 3 meaning ClanHBS's TeamSpeak 3 server;

    Spirit of the rule - This rule is for the coordination of the aircraft in the air, as most of the aircraft need to be called in for fire support, which means they need to hear the call. Other reasons include coordination of the assets. There's no reason to have 3 Blackhawks transporting 1 soldier a piece from the airbase, or for multiple A-10s to respond to the same CAS 9-line. This is also for airspace control of the airfield. Nothing is more bothersome than a head-on collision of taking off A-10s clogging up the run way for other possible flights.
  • All Aircraft / Artillery support must be on call.
    • No attack aircraft is to engage the enemy on their own accord;
    • The attack aircraft are to maintain a safe holding area, pattern, or stay on base until called in to preserve the longevity of these craft;
    • Artillery must remain silent until called to fire;
    • Caveat being that the aircraft is in immediate danger and needs to act against that danger;

    Spirit of the rule - Issues have come up before where the infantry elements would come into a town only to find burning heaps of stone and metal and be forced into a kind of bug-hunt for that last soldier who's running around and generally waste time. While the aircraft are indeed powerful and useful, they can be used in such a way to remove all of the fun of engagement from ground elements. To this end, aircraft and artillery may only engage when called on.
  • Weapons safe on base.
    • Discharge or firing of any weapon on base is strictly prohibited;

    Spirit of the rule - This rule is meant to underline rules 1 and 2. There's no reason to fire on base.
4. ARMA 3 - Training Server Rules
  • The Training Server is first and foremost an area for ClanHBS members to practice skills that will be utilized in either operations or public spaces.
  • There will always be a ClanHBS member responsible for the server.
  • No public members.
5. Specific definitions of ARMA 3 - Training Server Rules
  • The Training Server is first and foremost an area for ClanHBS members to practice skills that will be utilized in either operations or public spaces.
    • Simply put: RTC > Unit Training > Recreational-time.
    • The above hierarchy of use shall always be observed, however, this does not mean that two groups can't be doing two things at once.

    Spirit of the rule - Simply as the hierarchy of use states, the training server is first and foremost the ClanHBS 3rd Brigade training server; everything else comes secondary to this mission. RTC will always have priority of this server during the scheduled training times (check with RTC for currently scheduled bootcamps), as they are responsible for replenishing and growing the ranks of the ClanHBS, and they will not be hindered in this mission.
  • There will always be a ClanHBS member responsible for the server.
    • Whenever the server is running, there will be at least one member that is in charge of the operations of all members in the server.
    • Generally speaking, this member will be the Operational Staff or the Training Staff.
    • This member is responsible for all conduct on the server.

    Spirit of the rule - Responsibility of use of ClanHBS assets always needs to fall on someone. As such, before entering the server as a group, either the ranking officer/NCO assumes this responsibility, or a pre-designated member of the group needs to be responsible (such as when there are NCOs running trainings for officers, etc).
  • No public members.
    • No public members.
    • Members of allied clans are allowed to attend events if first approved by the Regimental Commander.

    Spirit of the rule - Being as the servers are for ClanHBS members, as a matter of privilege for those of the Elite, public players are not welcome in these servers. Allied clans are allowed to visit the grounds if prior to the event the Regimental Commander provides written permission for them to attend.
