So, as some of you know, we had a gathering today, featuring the GameShrine admins and a representative (captain or captain nominated) from each team on the ladder. We discussed the rules as they stand as well as new concepts posted by the community.
Firstly, these rules are all subject to a 2 week probation. To assist in this probationary period, the admin team would like all server owners to apply these rules to their servers ASAP. As an addendum, it is advised that lots of scrims are played in this 2 week period to give us the maximum amount of data on the validity of these rules. If we don't know things are bad because they aren't tested, we can't make a final call. We need your help on this, so don't be slack!
Secondly, there are a few rules that will have to be user enforced. The easiest way to do this is by taking a screenshot of the violation and reporting it to a GameShrine admin (these are myself, Iriticus and Dose).
Thirdly, in the event that two teams come to a gentlemens agreement on any specific topic (example: GS picks Temple as map 3 - neither team wants to play Temple, and agree on Katabatic) the admin team is not allowed to enforce the change without evidence of the agreement. The easiest method to make this happen is to make a post on the game page itself (open the challenge, scroll to bottom, Join Discussion). A post from either captain BEFORE the game stating that the teams agreed on playing a different map/banning Gast/whatever you agree on is fine. Naturally, this agreement will be validated before a final call is made, but evidence is key here.
Oh, and congratulations Dose on inheriting the soul crushing thankless job that is being an admin!
Vehicles: Costs lowered to Shrike 36000, Beowulf to 15000, Grav to 2000
Perks: Safety Third is banned on Juggernaut ONLY (this will have to be player policed, as class-level perk bans are not available as of writing)
