  5. Teleporting enemies into spawn is not allowed.
    1. Neither is taking these Teleporters as Spy.

III. Other rulings
  1. Staff have final say in the interpretation of any rule

  2. You may not encourage players to break the rules.
    • Offering credit rewards for rule-breaking will result in an instant ban.
