About:
Blood Bound began life as a Project Reality clan 2 years ago, playing together in many games, forming a tight community of individuals that dipped their toes in several games together; PR always being the central hub everyone would congregate around. After lying dormant for a while, some members had joined other clans and communities in Squad. Some of the of the key members of Blood Bound were in a clan that unfortunately disbanded, which prompted two of them - Hudson and Ark - to gather some of the people in that clan that were left high 'n dry after they disbanded together, and bring them in to Blood Bound to breathe new life into the clan, and start up Blood Bound's own Squad community and server.

 

We're back from yesteryear, rising like a phoenix from the ashes!

 

We welcome any and all to join our community for some laughs and good games together - hop on our Discord some time! If you like playing with us and are thinking of joining the clan, get in touch with one of our members and we'll have a chat ;)

 

Discord: Blood Bound

 


Reporting a player:

Hop on our Discord to get in touch with an admin ASAP in our #contact_an_admin channel and

 

  • tag the @Server Staff
  • provide the nickname and SteamID64 / Steam profile permalink (read the pinned post in the channel for an explanation) of the offending player, so we can identify them
  • tell us what team they're on, and if possible, in which squad
  • explain in detail what the player did
  • if possible, provide any relevant evidence, such as footage of the incident (uploaded as an unlisted Youtube video) or relevant screenshots - video evidence being preferred

 


Appealing a ban:

Please visit our ban appeals sub-forum, check out the sample format provided, and make a new thread following that format. You can sign in easily using your Steam login on the top-right - no need to make a forum account!

 

 

= Server Rules =

 

We're all about teamwork, good communication, and providing a good atmosphere to keep things fun.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, you can post a comment here - though joining our Discord is of course the quickest way to get in touch.

 

Our admins' first concerns are to uphold an enjoyable atmosphere on the server for everyone on it, and to keep the quality of gameplay high. Admin decisions are final.

 

1. No racism, sexism, or discrimination of any sort will be tolerated
Any such chat - whether in text chat, or over comms - will be met with a permanent ban. This includes offensive player or squad names.

 

2. Do not insult each other
We understand that things can get hectic and in the heat of the moment, tempers may flare and arguments can happen, but this does not mean we'll tolerate an argument only escalating due to direct insults being flung back and forth. Try to keep the atmosphere on the server enjoyable. If you can't resolve it - drop it and play on.

 

3. Do not spam text chat or comms
Spamming things over comms and disrupting the game, or clogging up text chat will be first warned for, then punished.

 

4. Do not recruit for your clan or advertise websites or streams on the server
Self-explanatory - don't advertise for your own Discord / community / clan or try to recruit members while on the server. Don't advertise your stream, either. Don't advertise for things like skin gambling websites, either. This includes having a website as part of your nickname.

 

5. Don't ever intentionally team-kill, for any reason whatsoever - including in retaliation - or you will be banned
If you're intentionally team-killed (for example, after an argument), call the attention of an admin and let them handle it. Please apologise for any accidental TKs in all chat so admins know they were accidental.

 

6. Do not camp enemy main bases
If your team manages to cap the enemy's last cap - defend that cap, but don't advance on the enemy's main base. This rule includes planting mines / IEDs too close to enemy main bases; as a rule of thumb, keep mines / IEDs 250m away from enemy main bases. Due to some maps being quite small compared to others, the closest allowed proximity of mines / IEDs to enemy mains may be relaxed a bit on maps like Sumari, where they are allowed right up 'till the "Checkpoint" cap zone. When in doubt, ask an admin.

 

7. Squad Leaders are required to speak English, and have a mic (and use it)
We expect SLs to cooperate with one another, and make an effort to lead their squad.

 

8. Do not make a squad unless you intend to lead it
Don't make a squad, then leave it and make another - this doesn't help "seed" squads, but just causes chaos at the start of a match. Don't make a squad then pass off SL to someone else, either. Also, don't make a squad solely to get a certain kit.

 

9. Squad Leaders may kick anyone from their squad for any reason
Please try to be civil when kicking people from your squad. If you're kicked from a squad, please don't argue about it, but join a different squad. If the reason you were kicked conflicts with one of our other server rules (racism / sexism / discrimination), please report it so the offending SL can be dealt with.

 

10. Do not lock your squad with less than 4 people in it
Specialised squads (e.g. logistics, mortar, APC, Bradley) may be smaller, but must be named accordingly.

 

11. Respect specialised, named squads - don't take claimed assets
Specialised squads, such as a squad named "LOGI", "BTR 30MM", "APC" or "IFV" have first claim of the vehicles named. First come, first serve applies - if there are multiple specialised squads trying to claim the same vehicle(s), the first squad to have created their named squad takes precedence. In the case of such squads being made within a very short time of one another, we expect SLs of these squads to fairly, and maturely come to an agreement concerning these assets. In the case of a squad claiming several assets to fulfill a defined role (such as APC transport, IFV support), we expect you to have enough people in your squad to properly man these vehicles. Please see the next rule for more on this.

 

12. Do not one-man APCs and IFVs - these require a 2-man crew at all times
Techies and light transport / support vehicles (BRDM / MRAP) that don't require a crewman kit to operate may be one-manned.

 

13. Do not grief, troll, or waste assets
Intentionally getting friendly assets destroyed, "throwing" a match, driving a logi into enemy-held territory, or having your entire squad head off to a part of the map entirely not in play to spend the whole match building a giant, pointless FOB together are all examples of behaviour that breaks this rule.

 

14. Do not share any sort of team intel with the enemy team
This includes sharing friendly positions, ticket counts, or anything else that only your team knows / can see.

 

15. Abusing exploits to gain an advantage over others or using cheats of any sort will result in a ban
Hiding in a rock that lacks player clipping so you can't get hit would be an example of abusing an exploit. Use of cheats will be brought to the attention of OWI, and result in a full game ban.

 

16. Ghosting and stream sniping will be met with a permanent ban

 

17. Inactive / unassigned players will be kicked

Please join a squad if you're unassigned. Unassigned players will be seen as AFK and kicked to make room for others, accordingly.

 

 

Seeding rules

If the server player count is lower than 40 players, the following seeding rules are also in effect. Once there are more than 40 players on the server, a broadcast will be put out stating the game is live.

 

1. Do not take out enemy HABs / FOBs

Keep fighting to the middle caps.

 

2. Don't build FOBs / HABs on middle caps (as those will be fought over)

 

3. Do not use offensive vehicles
Only use transport and logistics vehicles.

 

4. Do not use mortar tubes, HMG emplacements, or other offensive FOB emplacements

 

 

Enjoy your time with us! Drop us a line if you have any concerns. Game on!

nice man instead of warning me or even kicking me at the end of the round, a mod of yours kicks me mid game after i was trying so hard the entire match, and I wanted to stay in till the end, but instead a mod just kicks me with no warning telling me to change my name which was just my twitch name. NO WARNING AT ALL

 

edit: and yes i see that its against the rules now but I didn't know that at the time and wasn't warned at all, just instantly kicked and ruined the entire match for me and session tbh

Squad Thought Police or how to get banned for opinion

 

TL;DR: I got banned from Blood Bound Squad server for being a squad leader of a squad called "War crimes and rape" for 3 days. I got perma banned from it for answering an admin that I do find such name appropriate. Other Blood Bound members had squad with name "Dolphins are rapey" without consequences.

 

I've been a Project Reality admin for couple of years, I respect any kind of server rules and follow them. It's typically my first action to come and check the server rules if I play on new one.

After the initial ban I went to Blood Bound Discord Server to re-read their server rules and ask the admins what exactly I did wrong.
The rule I have been pointed to was:


"1. No racism, sexism, or discrimination of any sort will be tolerated
Any such chat - whether in text chat, or over comms - will be met with a permanent ban. This includes offensive player or squad names."

 

I asked if that was racism, sexism, or discrimination but didn't receive an answer, instead *owner* asked me to come to help desk to discuss. The short talk came to the question if I find such squad name appropriate, then I answered "Yes, as it's not regulated", he congratulated that my ban is now permanent.

Nobody on the server complained about my squad name or asked to change it, which I would do if requested. Ban came without warning. It wouldn't be such an issue if it was temporary ban for actions I did i.e. naming my squad the way I did even though it's not in the rules, but it is as I'm banned for my sounded opinion that historical facts are appropriate in the game where the main theme is killing people.

If someone is wondering, I do not support war crimes or rape. Instead I call my squad names which are possible discussion topics for in-squad downtime discussion.

 

This leads me to a couple of conclusions:
1. Do not expect to be treated in the similar manner as other Blood Bound members on this server. They are allowed more than you are.
2. Do not be open minded and honest with admins here, they are not there to understand and help you.
3. Do not practice free speech there or go into discussions, you might trigger someone and get banned.

Meet you somewhere else, boys (:

As the actual owner and mind behind Blood Bound.
I can tell you the following, naming a squad “Warcrimes and Rape” is against our rules. We received several complaints from other players regarding it and followed up on those complaints.

We do not put our members on a pedestal and we uphold everyone to the same standards on our servers. The member who you mentioned committing the same offense has been talked to and due to this and similar actions, has been placed upon probation for half a year, with one more mistake resulting into a permanent removal from the clan and all services rendered by us.

We uphold our rules equally and will not have our members tarnishing our reputation. The difference between the two is that once approached he admitted his mistake and understood what he did wrong.
While the question that you were asked might have been better phrased with more tact and context, you did not acknowledge there could be any issue with the name and still do not. “If someone is wondering, I do not support war crimes or rape. Instead I call my squad names which are possible discussion topics for in-squad downtime discussion.” 

Are you honestly standing behind that statement? You and I both spend years as PR admins, and know full well the level of toxicity these types of downtime conversation topics result into, and in order to maintain the standard I wish to see on our server I make sure that this risk is minimized.


"The aim of the kicks and bans we issue is to discourage future rule breaking. Until we can be confident people will not repeat offend we do not want those people on our server." 
-Hudson,
Founder, Independent admin affairs.


So yes while my fellow Founder may have been able to resolve this in a more tactfull way. the core message stays the same, we do not tolerate this type of behaviour and will remove them.

 

 

 "the admin team's primary goal and motivation is always to maintain a good atmosphere and decent quality of gameplay on the server - the rules are guidelines that aid in doing so"


For any and all further questions, feel free to contact me on discord.


(This is not standard, Always try and contact us (IAA)  us if you run into problems, we are far from unreasonable.)

With kind regard, 

-Hudson. 
Founder of Blood Bound.

> I can tell you the following, naming a squad “Warcrimes and Rape” is against our rules. We received several complaints from other players regarding it and followed up on those complaints.

 

Was is in squad chat? Because I monitor allchat / teamchat close to 100% percent, there was nothing in the discord admin channel as well, so why people intentionally tried to report it the way so I didn't notice it?

> We do not put our members on a pedestal and we uphold everyone to the same standards on our servers. The member who you mentioned committing the same offense has been talked to and due to this and similar actions, has been placed upon probation for half a year, with one more mistake resulting into a permanent removal from the clan and all services rendered by us.

The problem with it, that that particular member wasn't alone in the squad. I don't remember exact number, but I would say that at least 4 members of Blood Bound joined it and at least one of the them was a server administrator. Squad name was standing during the whole round, the same way no one complained about it and admins didn't act upon. Where is all their apologies for doing it? There are none because if I didn't mention it no one would even notice.

 

I suspect that the problem is mostly the word "rape"? The word "rape" was freely used in the game all chat by many players to describe the situations when another team can not give a fight, as expected without warning or bans.


You do say that such squad names are unwanted and I can perfectly understand that. Until the incident me or your own server administrator obviously didn't think it's bannable offense. There's nothing in the rules directly stating it's against the rules. I will help you to formulate it, if you want.

"1. No racism, sexism, discrimination or sexual content mentions of any sort will be tolerated.
Any such chat - whether in text chat, or over comms - will be met with a permanent ban. This includes offensive player or squad names."

You can even through in "controversial content" in there to cover your future adminning and justify bans like that. And yes, I am and people like me will try to avoid breaking your rules when you state them in such way. Unfortunately, all admin process I've been through was aimed to remove me immediately without consideration, although some of your members know me, many players do and I never broke any rules during about 500h played. To be honest, talking to the banning admin was comparably more toxic than average honest talk about war crimes as his only intention was not to prevent such cases in future when I mentioned that this is not regulated but screw me over in hate for mentioning it.


Are you honestly standing behind that statement?
 

Aye, unfortunately I do. A lot of important historical events I got learnt about only after I've met people from Croatia, Serbia, spoke with people from Ukraine, etc. You and me know that conversations in the squad created by your member weren't toxic. The same way low IQ people don't end up talking in my squads because there's a kick function. And it's fine if you don't talk to people about things I do. In any way, I came to your server to play and not type something you don't want to be typed, unfortunately I have not given a chance to realize that it's unwanted, because many of your own members acted fine in a similar situations.

 

And your mention that there's difference between me and your members sound like this: you pull out and shoot someone in the head for saying the word "rape" and ask the next one if he thinks it's ok what he did the same. If I asked him before the incident I'm pretty sure he wouldn't say it was a problem.
