Slots are non-reservable. They are first come, first serve.
- 1st and 2nd missions will be slotted following the tags procedure.
- Calendar missions can have asset/tag roles as reserved slots.
- FNGs are not allowed to join the server before being pulled into ARMA start room during 1st or 2nd missions.
Tags procedure should be taken as follows:
- During 1st or 2nd missions, a slot may only be taken before it is called when requested by a trainer for evaluation or training.
- When attaching to a squad, you may only take on the role of a Rifleman.
If the destruction of an asset is considered a failure condition or a Squad is designated for a ‘Special Purpose’ which will fail the mission if not completed, Zeus can prohibit evals on these assets/squads.
- Evals are prohibited during TvTs.
- Slots are non-reservable. They are first come, first serve.
- Only Platoon Drone Operator or units designated by Platoon Lead can take drones. The Zeus decides what drone is available.
Once you have played an asset for a mission, you will not be allowed to take that asset in the following mission. Assets include:
- Vehicle Crew
- NOTE; A tag holder can take a slot if no other tag holder wants it.
- If you have played the same asset for multiple days in a row, you lose the right of tag holder of that asset for that day.
- Enemy assets are prohibited from being used unless explicitly permitted by the Zeus. Motorized softskin vehicles such as Humvees, GAZes/MRAPs, URALs and similar are exempt from this and may be taken freely. Essentially, any enemy vehicle that would require tags for slotting are not to be commandeered or taken. A softskin does not include Armoured Personnel Carriers (BTR/BRDM/M113/etc) or Infantry Fighting Vehicles (BMP/Bradley/etc)
- Zeuses for the 1st and 2nd missions are called out by a Bot one hour before the sessions start.
People willing to Zeus must apply for a mission by:
- Using the Discord Bot or
- Making a calendar event.
- Calendar events are only for heavy gear-restricted/thematic missions.
- Abusing calendar events for ensuring Zeus slot is prohibited.
Only the following restrictions can be applied by Zeuses for non-calendar events:
- Medical system
- Unit tracking
- No Night Vision Equipment
- No GPS
- Ammo limits
The following restrictions can be applied by all Zeus and Co-Zeus tag holders for non-calendar events (The faction is defined by what Zeus provides with. This can be a Wikipedia article with a list of equipment or other sources):
- Faction specific weapons
- Faction specific launchers
- Faction specific optics
- Zeus decides the side and assets for the platoon.
- Zeus is allowed to enforce a faction as which the platoon must play.
- It is prohibited to take a Zeus slot in an ongoing mission without permission from the main Zeus.
- Zeuses are given a time limit for missions that they need to adhere to. The time starts once slotting is completed and they are given 2 hours to manage their mission. Once the time limit has been exceeded, the Zeus is given 15 minutes to wrap up the mission. This means they don't force the players to complete several new objectives and instead focus on concluding the scenario in a plausible manner. If the mission is still going once 2 hours 15 minutes have passed, any player that needs to leave is allowed to do so. This does not apply to calendar missions which are booked in advance.
