Hello, thar!
Radios and "public" Frequencies
Unfortunately, it has reached a point where we once again need to point out that radios are IN CHARACTER means of communication.
That means you can not react to OOC actions such as players being kicked, killed because it shows up on the kill list, or generally comment on OOC situations on the radio.

Radios are only meant to communicate and organize with your friends, factions or contacts. We have the global OOC function if we believe you can handle talking across the server.
In addition to that function we added groups, and later teams for you to organize across factions and unofficials. You can use them to talk about anything you want - it's up to you.

We will begin cracking down on this on a much larger scale from tonight as it's something all staff members, and many faction leaders have had issues with in the past.


Mixing is a general issue on the server, and this is the first step we will take to limit that problem.
We're all guilty, and we've all done it. Let's look forward now and actually get better.



[bgcol=#cc9999]Initially we will issue kicks or 60 minutes mute on players who abuse the function, repeated offenses may result in /warnings or worse punishments.[/bgcol]
Server Update (28/03/2018)


It's been a while but we're still alive; gamemode updates have been put on the server.








Fighting Style, Gym & Boxing





Fighting styles are no longer reserved for premium members; now anyone can get any fighting style, including the the one with very high damage, knee-head. Every character now has a fitness level which can be increased in the gym.

You can use the treadmill (/gym treadmill) and follow the instructions on the screen or join the boxing right and have a fight against another player, 1v1. (/gym boxing)

In every gym activity your fitness level increases. Every paytime, your fitness level decreases by 10. Premium members only lose 5 fitness level per paytime.
You can select your desired fighting style (/gym fightstyle) but in order to keep it you must keep your fitness level high enough; so go to the gym regularly.










Improved paintball lobbies



Paintball lobby creators may now change the map immediately and allow players in the lobby to use c-bug, for those who prefer that.

Fake IM and You
A quick announcement outlining what may get you banned from our servers, in regards to playing on fake/copied IM servers.
- Staff Members (admins/helpers)
- Faction Leaders
- Faction Tier 1 Members (or equal to)

This is to emphasize that we do not tolerate communities copying our portal, forum, gamemode, maps and such features.
This does NOT mean you are not allowed to play on other servers, but servers that clearly mimic Italy Mafia will not be tolerated.

If you want to open your own community, feel free to do so - but ask if you want to know if you are violating this previously unwritten rule.
