question about axis spawn

Hello, everyone

I have a question about the axis spawn. I am a little confused on where an axis player becomes fare play to kill. Sometimes an axis MG will mount on the wall from inside their spawn that overlooks their first flag. Would it then be okay to shoot from the ledge where the axis leave their spawn at the mounted axis MG/ throw grenades into the spawn to kill the MG? I see this a lot, and I do my best to be conscious not to shoot or nade to avoid being banned for spawn killing. Also, I see not only MGs, but players with regular weapons also shooting from areas that can only be reached from inside the axis spawn. Am I suppose to just let them kill me and accept that that is the risk I take when traveling close to the axis spawn? Just seeking a little clarification so I don't get banned.

Aloha,

For me personally, I have no problem with shooting any player that is shooting at you from any of the spawn ledges.

And I usually throw up a warning over server chat about shooting from those areas, and not to cry if they get killed in spawn because of people continuing to shoot from there.

But every admin may see things differently, so if one tells you to stop doing something, just stop and figure out a different way.

Shooting from spawn is not allowed.
Anything over the wall is fair game. In the event that someone is shooting from spawn and he will not stop if asked, then he is fair game. The bad part about that, it kills other players in the spawn area when nading it.
Last week a player was standing at the axis first flag, not capping it, and shooting every player as they tried to get over the wall. Now it becomes an argument because he said they shot at him from spawn. When indeed, they did, but he shot the fist guy to come out of spawn. So when he re-spawned and tried to shoot the guy at the first flag, everyone became fair game in the shooters eyes.
There will always be that one player that is going to try and stretch the rules a little.

So, in answer to the original question, if they step over the wall and touch ground outside of spawn, they are fair game.
If they are shooting out of spawn, they are fair game. (Again, this does not mean setup camp at the first and kill the entire team)
If the shooter is standing near the first and not capturing an objective and racking up points, then they are camping/laming and this is not allowed. If I see someone doing this, they get a warning and if they do it again, kicked or banned for a short period.

Thanks for the replies. I have a better idea on how to handle this now.
