I was in this server earlier today placed a mine as scout behind nikem village (I could see the village not main, closer to village than main us base) on map op first light as I had observed a logi making several runs down the road then dip into woods behind nikem village. I watched a us vehicle blow up on my mine then ran out to place a ied even closer to nikem village on the road as I did the text chat lit up saying we were putting mines at main which was completely false then one said that if I placed any explosives near that road I would be kicked I then just resigned myself to not blowing my ied and walked away as I did I was kicked from the server.... I'm not here to throw a fit or whine just askin for the server admins to clarify their rules on this as is stated above it says "don't place a mine when you can see main base" I couldn't see the enemy main they had multiple routes to take to avoid where my explosives were I could see the second cap point not main! Could have been easily shot from nikem village as I placed explosives. I tried hopping on firestorm discord link above right afterwards to talk to Admin about this but link above opened discord but not firestorms. Like I said it is what it is but I would like rule clarified and to be enforced as it should be. I have over 500 hours on squad and this is the first time I have ever been kicked from any server and feel that the admin (not sure who it was think name started with a K) that did kick me acted unfairly and didn't give me a chance to right any wrong I did or to reply and have a cordial discussion. Also they should use the admin discord banner chat not the regular all chat for teams as this isn't always watched by people in server. Anyway that was my experience I'm here to help not be a ***. Any questions let me know thank you had a good time on this server till this happened thanks.

Hey Crew379. First off, i just wanted to say thank you for providing feedback regarding an issue on our server. We greatly appreciate it. I just wanted to clarify some things for you regarding our rules. First being camping/mining main.

 

In Squad it is a relatively hard thing to try to admin the main camping because we have had issues with people hiding behind cover very close to main and then declare "they can't *see* main" even though they are within a quite close proximity. This is technically a loophole regarding our rules on mining main and camping it.. and sometimes leads to unreasonable kicks. This may be one of those times.

 

We primarily emphasize that although our rules say you can't camp main where you see it, these two stipulations are most likely what our admin kicked you for.
 

" -Main-
•    Camping Main is permissible if all previous capture points are taken.  Moving past Main is acceptable.  Ambush immediately outside Main is NOT acceptable.  It is NOT camping Main if you are inside a cappable point.
•    Do NOT fire any weapons out of Main
•    Do NOT place a mine at any point you can see Main "

 

We understand that at first the rules on main may not make sense and we are looking at a different way to approach this problem (specifically players intentionally going to mine/attack right outside enemy mains while they have limited ways to exit these mains.) Case in point is its pretty subjective. 

That being said, we will unban you but we just ask that if you are going to camp a main with mines and are told to stop you should immediately dig the mine up and leave the area. Leaving the mine appears to be an intentional placement from our view so its best to remove it before leaving.

 

Thanks for your concern on the issue and we hope to see you back on our server!

-Hertz

I personally almost ONLY play in Firestorm. When there's a queue, I join it. Nearly always an admin on at any given time, and cancer is dealt with swiftly and justly. +1 for [FS].

Think I was kicked similar to last guy too. I honestly don't remember for sure if it was firestorm, but I think it was. We were just trying to move past US Main going east-to-west on Logar Valley in a logi to set up a FOB behind South DC (basically doing a long flanking maneuver), when me and my squaddie were kicked for "attacking main, wasting assets". We did not attack anything at main. My scout had a few minutes ago placed a mine on road about 400m north of US Main, but that's like half a map's width away, hardly camping main.

Got to play with some of the Firestorm boys and they seem very friendly and reasonable.

 

Remember they provide a playground and we should abide by their rules, as with all clan servers. If all you got was a kick then it's minor and should be learnt from. They are trying to provide a great place to play, and can be hard to decern  unsporting behaviour  to griefing. It's not a paid job and we as players should try and make life easy for them. 

 

If you don't like it find another server which suits your game style.

 

Happy gaming

Thank you xXhertzXx for the professional response you represent your server very well nice to see. My whole reason in bringing this up was so that maybe y'all could discuss this is issue especially on the op first light map as its configured a lil differently then most with village cap and us main. Maybe y'all could indentify a grid square as the kick square on that road from main to nilrem village as kind of a defined uniform border for kicks of this nature just an idea might not be practical I dunno.   I'll give yalls server a try again sometime soon and thanks again for your professional response it makes me want to visit yalls server again! Thanks and happy holidays

Also hertz upon reading your post again I would like to stress that I was not hiding so I couldn't "see main" lol that's just ridiculous people try to exploit that and If that was the case I should have been kicked right away.... I strongly disagree with camping mains I hate it that's why this kick upset me...... My situation I wasn't near the main I was closer to the second cappable point nilrem village just wanted to clarify that further.... as for digging up the ied I placed right before I saw the chat yes I should have dug it up understand that now just didn't wanna die lol as I said I could have got shot by enemies in nilrem village because I was close to it anyways no biggie thanks again though I appreciate the response see ya on server soon!
