5 Pilot Code of Conduct
Our strength is our unity. Participation and dedication are the
deciding factors of our success and survival. While real life
takes priority over gaming, participating in the activity you sign up
for should also be on the list. All Jasta 5 pilots commit to be on
the flight line twice per month, either by participating in a Jasta
Flight Training or flying in an organized event. Time spent in
open servers does not count towards this requirement.
Jasta 5 pilots assist those who are new to the Jasta and always treat
other pilots with courtesy, decorum and respect. No one wants to
play a game when there is no fun in it. You can make it fun by
helping others as well as treating them the way you would want to be
Jasta 5 is not a military organization, but is based upon one. All
pilots are expected to create a diversity of opinion and viewpoints.
The process of open communication is valued and important to our groups
success. However, when the wheels leave the ground, a Jasta pilot
is expected to accomplish their assigned missions to the best of their
abilities, as well as follow instructions given to them by officers more
senior. Only in this way can the unit function effectively.
A Jasta 5 pilot may not fly for any other squad without prior consent of
the Jasta 5 Command. This includes flying
as a mercenary.
E. You agree to respect the confidentiality and proprietary
nature of materials that you may be loaned (given access to) while a
member of Jasta 5. Such access and use by you is the property of
Jasta 5 and is intended to assist you in being successful as a member of
Jasta 5. You agree not to disseminate such materials to any
non-Jasta 5 members at any time regardless of whether your membership in
Jasta 5 is active or is inactive. This non-disclosure is binding
regardless of whether your membership expired or was terminated by you
or the Jasta.
Command of Jasta 5 has the right to transfer or relieve of duty any
pilot in Jasta 5.
Jasta 5 pilots fly according to the standards below in all servers, except where
the rules of a tournament or server may amend them:
NO VULCHING – I
agree not to engage in any of the following forms of Vulching:
another plane that is on the ground or otherwise not allowing an
aircraft to get in the air before launching an attack. Most consider the first turn or firing of guns after
take-off to be the point of acceptable engagement.
plane that has been involved in a collision that is returning to
base (RTB), unless it first attacks me.
plane that is severely damaged or which will eventually crash,
unless I am the pilot responsible for most of that damage or it is
enemy who is already engaged with two or more opponents.
enemy that is out of ammunition and returning to base (RTB),
unless the pilot used much of his ammo up while attacking me.
stealing another pilots kill by firing the last few rounds into an
already doomed plane.
singling out and attacking new players for easy kills.
NO DITCHING – I
agree not to engage in ‘ditching’ my plane or purposefully cause
my plane to be damaged such that the effect and outcome is the same
as having ‘ditched’.
NO RAMMING – I
agree not to purposefully engage in ramming nor place blame upon
being involved in a collision.
It always takes two. See #1b.
NO BAILING – I
agree not to prematurely exit the server to avoid giving a kill
credit to another player under any circumstances.
There are no parachutes.
NO ACCUSING – I
agree not to openly accuse, insinuate or state an opinion that a
pilot is cheating without possessing evidence that would support
NO SWEARING – I
agree not to engage in profane or abusive ‘open’ chat.
NO HACKING – I
agree not to alter, add or change software for the purpose of
cheating or obtaining an unusual or unfair advantage over other
will make every effort to:
a pilot who acts dishonorably the error of their way using
instructive words of correction.
Allow an opponent
who is badly wounded to fly home and repair his plane when it is
obvious to me that I am far superior in skill (See Guynemer vs. Udet).
Express myself in
a positive spirit of sportsmanship, with honor and honesty and try
to enhance, encourage and improve the game and the community
Do not engage in
flame wars on public forums.
Welcome and assist
new players in the servers and personally seek to introduce others I
meet to Jasta 5.
