Usually at my field, we play some Scenarios, VIP, Downed Pilot, Invasion (1-2 defenders at a point, hold off again X number of waves, containg X number of players...Point to defend is above a hill)..
Anyhow, one of the problems we face... is over-shooting. BEFORE, we started having people REF, there was a rule in effect, you shoot someone 3-4 times over the original elimination shot, the player had the option to shoot the offender back, equal to the amount of over-shot... (OF course, this was stupid like none other) and Thank God, was never enforced by any means.
So: When I ref, My rules that everyone agrees on, are as follows:
Rules for our Field
1.Team-Kill: Whoever shot is the team-mate is out:
2.Overshot: Player who overshot by more than 4-5 is out, and can't play next game
3.Mercy: Option to mercy the player within 20ft... (Player can decide or accept)
4.Barrel Tag: Player obviously out.. If they shoot (read next)
5.If Player shoots a person at point blank range (in the event of a player attempting a barrel tag, shooter is out (reason being, last year, someone was about to barrel tag, player turned and shot the kid point blank... below the waste..)....
6.In the event of respawn games: Players must go back to Select Point and Leave an Armband or insignia (each player has 3, and ref is there to enforce drop) so no person gets more than 3 respawns per game (usually V.I.P... guards can resurrect at spawn point).
7.Shooting Hot (knowingly, I.E adjusting velocity after chrono), player is out for half the day..
Game Limits: 45 minutes (Was a problem with games lasting upwards of 2 hours for one single game of 10v10).
8.Wiping: Out for the game and next.
9.Shooting from the dead-box: Out for the day, no excuses.. had a big issue with this last year.
10.WHEN Eliminated: player must secure their barrel (BBD), raising marker above head while shouting out till the dead-box.
11.Camping: (staying in one spot the entire game), verbally tell the player to advance if after X number of minutes and no change, Player gets warned again and has a minute to advance and get in the game (Due to spawn campers, or base huggers), if they still don't move, player location is announced..
Just some of the things, that I set in place for when we play PB...I believe thats everything we cover at our field (private, so its the same group of guys everytime)... At another field and ref, it changes, due to the conditions and so forth.
So what does everyone else rule book consist of or look like for your field that you ref?
