Killing a teammate will result in a total of a -2 score for the offending player. The -1 is already recorded on the hud while the second -1 is added to that mentally as to discourage further team kills.Legging and Leaving a 'Mech without finishing the kill in a timely manner, will result in a -1 kill to the offender. The same rule applies to Hulling and leaving a Mech. Hulling is when you fire upon a 'Mech until you turn him red and knock off all your opponents weapons. Leaving a hulled 'Mech and not finishing the kill in a timely manner will result in a -1 kill. A timely manner is considered around 30 seconds. This rule does not apply if the 'Mech that is legged or hulled decides to run and hide. If the aggressor can not find the 'Mech then there is no way for him to finish it in this time frame. It does also not apply if the warrior becomes engaged with another enemy and is unable to destroy the 'Mech in question.
Death From Above miscounts. On occasion kills from dfas will be miscounted on the hud.
If this is to happen the player will claim the kill by calling 'mine' or something similar to that and also say -1 to whoever got his kill.
After which that player will mentally note down that he has one extra kill than the hud dictates.
If there is a argument as to who actually got the kill it is suggested that a player call hold so that it can be straightened out.
