Post Server Etiquette
SERVER ETIQUETTE

What is the difference between Server Rules and Server Etiquette ?
Server rules are hard laws. They are decided and enforced by Admins and SP. If you break them you are liable to an admin punishment.
Server etiquette is more like real life politeness, customs or traditions. If you violate etiquette, admins/SP will not punish you, but other players will look down on you, you may loose their respect and they may even react negatively.

General Server Etiquette:

E1 - Respect all players regardless of their origin or experience of the game and server.

E2 - When interacting with another player think about your fun but also his fun.

E3 - English is the international language. Do not use another language in system chat. Use group or private chat.

E4 - If you are new do not hesitate to ask for help. But do not beg for money or tips.


PvP & RP Etiquette

E10- When engaged in PvP with RP motivation (*), do not log off or switch to another character to avoid the fight
Even if you are in a weaker position, try to either fight (until you kill or die), or flee in game (if you are in a freighter). Loosing a fight against a more experienced player will not hurt you and will improve your skills .
However if you feel that the attacker is abusing a superior position then refer to server rules S4–S8–S9 and report to SP/Admins as appropriate.

E11- In PvP, many consider regenning or reloading (i.e. using shield batteries and nanobots) to be against Freelancer tradition
It is not forbidden however there are passionate views on both sides.
If you are a new player you should know that regenning is considered by many experienced players as weak. It may cause some of them to loose some respect for you.
If you are an experienced player and see a new player regen, you should explain this to him calmly instead of giving him a hard time. Not everyone knows.
In any case regenning is not a justification for name calling (like “noobs”), which is punishable under server rules.

Note: regenning against NPCs is generally accepted and done by most.

E12- Casual consensual PvP
Casual PvP is PvP agreed by 2 players (without RP motivation). It starts when both players say “Go”. At the end whether you win or loose it is polite to say “GF” (good fight !). If you don’t say GF your opponent may see you as a sore looser.

Battleship etiquette:

E20 - If you are new to the game, do not rush to buy a BS as soon as possible
Take some time to learn the game first. Once you get comfortable with the game universe and fighter PvP, you will become a much more respected BS pilot.

E21 -Use Battleships with judgement.
Battleships (BS) are powerful ships with a major impact on gameplay. In real life a battleship command would only be given to a very experienced high-ranking officer, not to “rookies”. When flying a BS you are expected to behave in such a way.

E22 - Use BS only for a realistic purpose: destroy another BS or station.
Do not use BS to “hide” from fighter attacks. Do not randomly shoot at fighters unless in defense or as part of a larger organised RP action.

E23 - When engaged in PvP by a fighter, never switch directly to a Battleship character.
What started with a fighter/freighter should first finish with a fighter/freighter (by death or docking). Only after you died, docked or far from the enemy, you can switch to another character.
