New to AMS but not to milsim. I tried to find these clarifications in the forums and rules but could not. If there is a good thread on this kind of stuff or a forum I am missing please advise. Questions at the beginning and safety kill commentary at the end.
Grenades: thunder Bs are listed in the rules under frag grenades, but I read later in the rule set that they only count as frags if used in a suicide attack.
1. are thunder Bs NOT lethal in normal combat?
2. are thunder Bs allowed to be loaded with BBs to make them lethal in normal combat?
3. does soft cover (brush, small trees) protect you from a grenade?
4. what constitutes a suicide attack?
Rockets: In the POV explanation it notes that a rocket must hit the front of a vehicle so the driver can see it.
1. can a POV hit be called (not in the front) by an admin?
Bleedout: rules state I can yell or radio for a medic.
1. After I am hit, do I HAVE to stay for my 5 minute bleedout, or can I choose to return to respawn immediately?
2. When I RADIO for a medic, can I tell them my position?
1. can I sign up for a DAM as a single, or are these for teams only?
Safety kill: rules state that accepting a safety kill is optional (what follows is a comment, not a question). I strive to convince others it should not be optional. Here comes my 2 cents.
-A safety kill offer usually means someone bested you. Give kudos to the guy and accept.
-A safety kill is intended to minimize pain and possible physical damage (skin penetration / chipped teeth at short range). Making it optional only discourages its use by concerned / honorable players.
-Refusing a safety kill is NOT milsim. What is the real world equivalent? It does not exist. You get shot. No warning.
-This is NOT the equivalent of attempting to force a surrender and taking a live captive. If an airsoft opponent of mine wants to try to take me alive, I wish him luck, and I WILL shoot him. If a guy gets the drop on me and wants to spare me BBs under my bare skin, "Thanks, brother. I will do the same for you next time."
-There is no way to know which guy is going to refuse your safety kill offer and spin around and shoot you at very close range, so the best thing to do is just shoot everybody, even at very close range. It's the only way to be safe. I have been on both ends of very close shooting. We all know how it sucks to get shot at very close range. It also sucks to injure another player. I have made that mistake and I grew from it.
In trying to glorify our awesome sport, we push words like HONOR, INTEGRITY, SPORTSMANSHIP and DISCIPLINE. How is refusing a safety kill reflective of anything but the opposite of all of those? Let's encourage good sportsmanship, trigger discipline and minimizing medical issues that could end a guy's weekend. Happy to hear other opinions.
