    Heyo! Thats me right there using incognito mode.

    Yeah I can see that this is skyboat but you should clearly see on the Prepare for Fight phase, I jumped down on that fence. I could see you trying to whore-grab evidence players in Build Phase when any gameplay isn't affected there. I'll let @Decap handle it.

    So... This guy was utilizing ropes for architectural stability. This is something I have done before (without welding), but none of us have really taken the time to discuss whether or not it is a form of skyboating. I'd say it isn't a skyboat provided that:

    (1) The elevated prop is not welded/ smart welded to any props.

    (2) The keystone prop--the one that has ropes bound to it--can be destroyed. This would cause the bolstered structure to topple over.​

    I was building that boat just for shits and giggles but he didn't give me any signs of warning for infringing server rules. Yes I got on top of the fence on the "Prepare to Fight" phase but 5 seconds before "Fight Phase", I jumped down and got under the fence. I could see as if this guy is just hungry to get people banned.

    Rollie kindly asked me to get off of the skyboat (if I can recall) and I cooperated.

    With that few amount of rope, you can see it sagging down in a normal image, this image clearly has no sag on the ropes whatsoever.

    The rope length was 0, thats why it isn't sagging down. I've also used a feature in the ropes tool that allows ropes to act like a solid bar.

    May I just say to the staff team, you can't really ban someone for this since it's in the build phase, for all you know he could change it, someone should only be able to get banned if THEY are using it during the fight phase.

    I'll see what Decap has to say first. I don't want to close down my own report or any admin. If the BR involves an admin, than it shouldn't be denied in any reason without consultant.

    The "rope skyboat" has yet to be discussed and from what I can see it is not necessarily against the rules for the points that @Dawson pointed out. However I will put a note on it to discuss it during our next meeting. This screenshot was taken during the prepare to fight phase and not the actual battle phase. If it was during the battle phase then yet there would be some merit for discussion on possible punishment, however that is not the case. Denied.
