can any one help in this rule please ?

  • Stop acting like a smart ass ya'll, wait for an official answer from one of the clan members.

  • If someone steals your vehicle, you can kill him, but once he's out, you can't kill him.

  • If you are attacking a player to get your vehicle back, and he leaves it to run away or you destroy the vehicle, then you have no reason to continue attacking that player since he no longer has your vehicle; at this point it becomes killing just for sake of killing which is deathmatch, not in order to return your vehicle.

    Additionally let's presume that you are allowed to, in which case if you do proceed to kill the person after they leave your vehicle, you might end up finding yourself reported for deathmatch where you'd likely have no evidence to prove that the reporter in fact stole your vehicle sometime before you killed them. It creates a tangled situation which is best avoided by simply focusing on what you're there in the first place for: getting your vehicle back, not deathmatching the player.

    Meanwhile if they were to report you for shooting them while they are inside your vehicle, the screenshot would show your vehicle too and its owner can be easily found, branding the report fake.

  • DM = killing without a reason
    stealing your car = a reason
    killing carstealer = legit DM

    this is grand theft auto and not some barbys ponnyhof game. if you get the balls to steal car, than get the balls to face the consiquence.

    its not like you as carstealer arent wasting the carowner time, carowner probably need the xar for race or going to br etc.. so DM carstealer to show that its not ok to steal cars, if we arent allowed to DM carstealer, than this server is no way better than laws (in some superwealthy countrys) allowing the houserobber suing you for beating him.

    and everyone who is as next going post here something like supporting carstealers & how bad its DM them, i will personally steal your cars 24/7 pinking it + remooving v8 & awd, have fun with your not dming carstealers, i will abuse the shit out of carstealers rights!

  • After talking with an admin HQ to get a confirmation about it, if he fails to steal your car , you're not allowed to kill him, so i was wrong about it!

  • i would still kill him. for being a twat.

    i do not gurantee a good outcome on your end but eh

    if fail to steal u mean when car is locked & tryed to steal?
    also iam allowed kill carstealer after i damage my own car & he needs to go out?

  • If the player is in your car, you can kill them.
    If they are not in your car, you have no reason to kill them and it becomes deathmatch.

    It's very simple.

  • thank you all 😄

    @Bartman said in can any one help in this rule please ?:

    if you get the balls to steal car, than get the balls to face the consiquence.

    so now if i failed to steal a bank in real life the cops let me go right ? xDDDD

  • so again to drots words:
    -teddy stealing my car
    -i need my car, i cant respawn at disc so i need to chase & destroy my car
    -after car ia burning, teddy going outside & he can steal another car from me because no consiquence
    -i pay 5k for my destroyed car

    is this in any way right?
    nullx example is perfect, going br & if fail cops let robber go...

    @DROT prepare yourself to loose v8 on every car!
    @Arma pls tell me wich hq giving carstealers rights, gonna rip his v8 too!

  • @DROT How about if they destroyed your car after stealing it. And than they are forced to get out (as it is on fire). Can I kill them for destroying my property after stealing it?

    Or if I destroy the car because I am trying to kill the guy stealing it and he than is forced out of the car (due to it being on flames). Can I kill them than?

  • I like how the guy who made this topic has the guts to casually say "Oh yeah I will steal your car" like it's a normal thing to do for him, and then reports the guy who killed him because he stole his car...
    I personally think the SAES team should take a moment to discuss this in private and come up with a unified logic and rule to solve such situations instead of it being personal preference, would make it easier for everybody.

  • iam no member in saes team, but logically there are 3ways:

    -keeping as it is yet, stealers can steal without consiquence any car/reporting car owners for killiing them (&i will remoove v8 for every supporter of this idea)

    -making carstealing an saes rule wich leads to shit ton of reports & loose the meaning of the games name

    -allowing people deffending theyr fking cars (includes killing carstealer after they left car because carowner needed damage own car to get the car back & avoid getting pinked/remooved v8)

    -another way iam to dumb to think of

    wich makes more sense?

  • First of all, what do you expect to happen after you steal someone's car, a hug? You got what you deserved, a shot. And yes it's completely justified to do that while you're being in someone's vehicle or not, this should give you a lesson to not steal or touch someone's property. So Arma is completely right on this, and absolutely not surprised at all about DROT's nonsense reply. Self court for the win.

  • I didn't go trough all the posts, so I don't know if anyone answered you properly. First few posts I read are complete nonsense.

    Here's the deal. If you steal someones car, he can kill you as long as you are in his car. If car gets destroyed, or you leave the car and move away, any attack from owner of the car is revenge DM, which is a rule break. Any admin, or staff that tells you otherwise needs to get familiarized with rules himself first, then move on to this discussion.
    Yes, player is allowed to defend his property, but if the car is already destroyed (or you left the car and tried to move away), him attacking you is revenge DM.

    Also, anyone comparing this situation to real life and thinking you wouldn't end up in jail after killing person that stole your car is retarded.

    How is it revenge DM?

    Revenge DM by definition is dming someone after they dmed you.

    Dming would be killing someone for any reason, one including some guy who stole your car and than gets out of it and than you kill him. Its not revenge DM, just DM.

    The only reason I pointed it out is so people do not get confused with the definition of revenge DM.

    Revenge DM, by definition is when you DM someone for something they previously did. "Previously did" includes DM from another player, but it isn't tied just for that. When you insult someone in local chat and they kill you, that's also revenge DM. And so is the situation I was explaining in my previous post.

  • Hi @nullX

    I have reviewed your original post and all subsequent posts from the community, many of which gave some insight but did not particularly add any value.

    I will answer the question that I perceive you are asking.

    You can absolutely kill someone who is stealing your car, by this I mean someone who is currently in your vehicle, you are within your right to shoot them out of the vehicle or shoot the vehicle itself, it is afterall your vehicle.

    What you cannot do, is kill someone if they are not in your car. If they stole your car and are no longer in it, you cannot kill them. This is revenge deathmatching if nothing else - they are not currently in your property and by that definition they are not stealing your car.

    People are relating this to real life (for some reason), but to humour those people, you also cannot kill someone in real life for stealing your car, past tense. That would be incredibly stupid.

    The rules that are relevant to this are covered in #1 of the current rule list.

    Specifically the following;

    Killing another player as revenge for being killed, without cause. - This would also apply to your use case of someone stealing a vehicle but are no longer in that vehicle.

    Overall, do not interfere with another players gameplay using violence, unless it is part of the game. - Killing people on the street for prior actions would not fall into what we consider part of the game.

    Overall I understand why so much discussion has come out of this, and I can understand the confusion amongst the staff.

    It is important to remember that while the rules are guidelines we do expect people to apply common sense also, however this use case is pretty clearly outlined in the current rules and going forward we should be treating these cases as deathmatching.

    Cheers!
