1.1 Do not troll. Trolling can be defined as continuously performing an action to annoy/upset or provoke a reaction from other players.

1.2 Do not real-world trade. Real-world trading is the act of trading anything outside of OzzyGaming for in-game items or vice versa. Players that real-world trade risk being permanently banned from all services without warning.

1.5 Transferring gear/vehicles between factions is not permitted. It does not matter if you are transferring them to another player.

1.6 Do not "RDM". Random Deathmatch can be defined as the murder/attempted murder of another player without a role-play reason and/or a declaration.

1.7 New life rule. When you die and respawn, you may not re-attend the scenario that you died in. You may not faction swap to circumvent this rule. Once you respawn, you do not have any recollection of past events in role-play. You may return to the same area after 15 minutes (presuming the role-play scenario has concluded).

1.8 Power-gaming. Power-gaming is the act of working towards a goal without the intent of role-play.
