Detailed Rules

Summary of Rules:

Intentionally Destroying a member’s cargo of any kind is not tolerated, and may be punishable by permanent ban.

Intentionally killing other PCEOs is not tolerated and may be punishable by a 7 day ban minimum. A second offense may result in a permanent ban.

Griefing, trolling, harassment, racist comments, threatening or unfriendly voice/text communication is not tolerated, and punishable based on the offense.

All incidents will be investigated fairly by council members, to determine appropriate action while taking everything into account.

You MUST have PCEO as your active crew when in our sessions, or you will be treated as a random player.  PCEO is a crew for players wanting to peacefully make money and play in free mode.  The PCEO (or PCE7 or DCEO) tag serves as an identification card to be used in our sessions, to identify who is a PCEO member and who is a Random player.

Running solo VIP/CEO/MC work is not permitted in large lobbies.  Send invites frequently, and offer to work for others.  If you want to work solo, find a small lobby, and use our tutorial for creating solo lobbies, found on our web site Guides & Resources.

Vote-kicking all non-PCEO players is mandatory, and takes priority over any other action.

Vote-kicking is one of the most useful tools to keep a lobby safe.  Every vote counts so we need the majority of our PCEO members to vote out a random or hostile player.  For this reason you should be checking the player list before you start an activity, before you hire for CEO/MC work, every time you finish an activity, and as often as possible by pressing down on the D-pad.  There is a cooldown on vote kicking which lasts about 10 minutes.

If an admin, defender, or community representative contacts you regarding an incident, it is in your best interest to respond right away. They’re only doing their job and trying to keep the peace.

Be friendly to others.  Help others out. Return favors. Remain peaceful. Think before you act/speak. Be kind and mature.

Any issues with other players/members must be reported to a Community Rep, Defender or Admin for investigation if necessary.  NOTE: Video or screenshot evidence is needed.   Anytime anything goes wrong, record it, even if it was your fault.

Discord Chat:   The crew uses discord to communicate among ourselves, to plan and work together, find lobbies, and the leadership uses it to frequently send important announcements to the crew.  Discord is an essential resource, and it is strongly recommended that you use it while in game so you can benefit from collaborating with crew members.  Discord works on nearly all mobile devices and web browsers.  It will make your time more fun and productive.  If you are not yet on discord, see the “Apply” page for a link to join it. Be sure to set your nickname the same as your gamertag!  Remember to check your direct/private messages, especially if there is some incident with another crew member.  Use of Discord is a requirement

Cargo: “Cargo” is defined by any valuables being moved within a session, like Crates, Crate Vehicles, MC Products, Import/Export Vehicles, Gunrunning cargo.  Cargo is under NO CIRCUMSTANCES to be attacked or intentionally destroyed by other PCEO members.  Intentionally destroying another PCEO member’s cargo is not tolerated in any lobby, and the offender may be subject to an immediate permanent ban from the crew.  Although mistakes may happen and are understandable, Carelessness and Negligence are not excuses for destroying cargo, and are punishable as well.  Think first before you act.  For example, using lock-on missiles is dangerous near other people’s cargo.  Using proximity mines is a very bad idea because they may harm someone’s cargo in the lobby hours later.

Killing Other PCEO Members: Intentionally killing PCEO members is not tolerated in any lobby. Any offender in violation of this rule may be subject to a temporary ban.  A second violation may result in a permanent ban from the crew.  Accidental killings happen, we all get that.  Whether it be someone running into the tail-rotor of a helicopter, or accidentally locking into another PCEO member while firing at NPC enemies, it happens.  Think first, and look very closely at what you’re about to shoot at if you’re locking on to something.  Carelessness and negligence are not an excuse.  Do not retaliate if something happens.

Resolving problems  
 An admin, defender, or community representative may contact you after an incident.  Just let them know what happened.  They’re not trying to police you, they’re just making sure everything is alright.  If something happens between crew members, it is in your interest to respond to any questions.  Apologize when an accident happens, to the person who was affected, and to anyone else who may have been involved.  We’re all on the same team, and treat each other with respect.

Griefing includes any of the following:

PCEO Tags:

The PCEO (or PCE7 or DCEO) tag serves the same purpose as an identification card: It enables everyone in our sessions to know immediately who is PCEO, and who is a random player. Outside of our sessions, members may wear any tag they please.  It is mandatory for members to wear the PCEO tag in our lobbies.   If you accidentally enter our lobby without your PCEO tag on, leave the lobby right away.  If a member chooses not to wear the tag in our sessions, that member is treated no differently than a random player, even if the member tries to identify him/herself as PCEO via message.  No PCEO tag = leave the lobby.  To switch to other crew tags, do not leave the PCEO crew.  You can join another crew and then switch between crews very quickly from story mode.

Dealing with “Random” (non-PCEO) Players:

Random players are any player in a PCEO session that is not wearing the PCEO tag.   Do not kill or pursue randoms – leave the area.   Since Random players are non-PCEO members, they may not be aware of our policy of peace, or even care.   Stay away from random players.  These players are not technically considered hostile, but may turn hostile. They will be under surveillance by the Defenders.

Outside PCEO Lobbies, non-peaceful activity.

Wear different crew tags in public lobbies while killing, engaging in PVP or other not-peaceful activity.  We all want to represent our crew well, to the general public.  Do not leave the PCEO crew.  You can join another crew and then switch between crews very quickly from story mode.   What you do to others even without the PCEO tag, especially willful valuable cargo destruction, can cause problems later if those people decide to follow you, and goes against our values.

You can bring any issues or concerns to a member of the @justice_rep team.  It will be discussed and the issue will be resolved.
