---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- RULES UPDATED - 8th November 2021
Refer to the text in RED for the latest rule updates.
What is Jail Break?
Jail Break is a role-playing game mode which simulates a jail environment - players are divided into three groups. The groups are Warden, Guard and Prisoner.
A warden is selected at the start of the round once a guard types !w - only the warden determined by the plugin can give warden-type orders. The objective for the warden is to maintain control to prevent a rebellion and eliminate prisoners by giving clear & specific orders and playing games which results in killing losers and those who fail to follow orders.
A guard must maintain control in the jail through killing Prisoners who do not follow the orders or who are rebelling. They must protect the Warden as many Prisoners will try to rebel to kill the warden to cause havoc and win the round. A guard must become warden when there isn't one.
A prisoner (also referred to as T's, Terrorists) seeks to win the round either through following orders to achieve Last Request (!lr), or by rebelling. If you rebel, you will turn red and can only be pardoned by the warden.
Do not talk over the warden.
Do not kill or injure your own team-mates unless ordered by the warden.
Do not join Guard if you are not going to be warden, unless there are more than 4 active wardens.
Do not complain or argue - report any rule violations in admin chat only once.
Do not use an in-game name that cannot be pronounced or typed.
Do not influence RTV votes.
Do not give any information regarding an active round to alive players while dead or players on the opposite team.
When the warden dies, it is a freeday until new orders are given (this does not count towards the Special Days Limit). All T's are pardoned unless they damaged a guard or are actively rebelling (red, inside armory/vents, etc.). ST's are automatically revoked.
As a T, you may look for loopholes in orders when appropriate. If you are basing your actions of these technicalities, end up being killed for them, and then begin to complain, you are in the wrong.
Do NOT Close Cell doors once they are opened.
Do not give false orders or impersonate the warden.
Type !guard to join the queue for guard team.
Type !leave to remove yourself from guard queue.
Type !w as a guard to join the warden queue or to open the warden menu.
Type !pass as a warden to pass warden to another guard.
Type !sd as a warden to use special day menu.
Type @ followed by your message to make a report in admin chat.
Type & followed by your message to make a cross server report, if no admins are present.
Type !lr if you are one of the remaining 2 T's alive to initiate last request.
Type !peace as a warden to temporarily mute guards and prisoners.
Definitions of common terms
AFK Freeze - You cannot do anything at all except use text and voice chat unless it will kill you (e.g. getting out of pool to stop yourself from drowning then AFK freeze). Freeze - You cannot use movement keys but you can look around, jump and crouch. Contraband - All types of grenades, primaries, secondaries, tasers, shields and the jihad-C4. Freekill/RDM - It is when a prisoner is killed even though they did not rebel. Special Treatment (ST) - A warden can grant Prisoners ST in exchange for contraband, blood-hounding (cannot blood-hound without reward), or by earning it in a game. ST can be any form of special treatment the warden permits (i.e choosing next game, freeday). Shift/Crouch Walk - You cannot Jump when told to Shift/Crouch walk unless stated otherwise by the warden. Directions: "North, East, South, West" - North is the arrow blip on your mini-map radar and other directions can be determined using this information. Distance: "One Step" - Being told to "take one step" can either mean a single jump in a direction or being knifing distance from the location. A warden should give more precise orders if they want you to be within a specific distance (e.g. be knifing distance of X). T-Secret - Getting something which is hidden or a place where a T can hide themselves from the CT's. A prisoner is automatically KOS for doing this but the warden can pardon T-Secrets for ST's or during a freeday. Last CT/Guard - Last Guard with the beacon MUST kill all prisoners except the remaining 2 T's unless they are rebelling (it is automatically activated by the server when there is only 1 Guard alive whilst there are more than 4 Guard's in the team). All orders are singular - Being told to "jump" means jump once, being told to "crouch" means crouch once then stand up (unless you are being told to remain crouched or to keep jumping ...etc). You can AFK Freeze to type. New orders override previous orders - Being told to "keep jumping" and then a new order of "stay crouched" does not mean you should be jumping and holding crouch unless you are told specifically in the same order to "keep jumping and hold crouch".
Common Sense: You cannot go anywhere except where you are told (example: If you are told to "go to climb" and then you are told to "jump" - it does not mean you can leave climb to jump). Numpty Clause: if you are told to face cells and then told to do "180 degree turn" then you are told to "jump", it does not mean you face cells.
As a prisoner, you are rebelling if you ...
do not follow orders given by the warden and guards within 3 seconds.
do not drop a contraband when told by a Guard after 3 or more seconds.
do not back away from a Guard when told to do so.
go into or attempt to enter restricted areas: Armory, T-Secrets, Ventilation Areas and Weapon Caches.
kill or injure a Guard (even if they are baiting).
have a contraband out for 3 or more seconds unless told to do so by the warden.
interfere with games in any form or activate buttons/controls meant for Guard's.
throw any type of grenade or shoot a weapon unless ordered by the warden.
leave cells before being told to by the warden unless it has been 2 minutes since round-start.
cheat, detour or delay in any of the orders or games.
Aid the prisoners to rebel (gun, bomb or contraband planting and passing on T-Secrets to non-ST's).
Prisoners may NOT kill off their own T buddies without it being instructed in the game, meaning they should not be starting games that kill their teammates. This is considered griefing.
As a guard, you must NOT ...
freekill and freedamage - this means injuring or killing non-rebellers.
shoot into stacks - instead take cover and get the warden to unstack them.
open cell doors or press game buttons until you are told to do so by the warden.
be a Guard if there are not enough Guard's with a microphone and being warden.
randomly spam-fire your weapon or randomly throw any type of grenade.
aid the prisoners to rebel (gun-planting, baiting, randomly opening vents, not upholding orders, delaying games).
play prisoner games unless it is LR, a freeday, or required to pursue a rebeller.
damage vents or go into them unless you hear/see/suspect a prisoner has gone through (do not camp vents).
kill prisoners for twitching (small mouse movements) when told to be AFK frozen.
kill prisoners for being close to you unless you tell them to back away or to keep a certain distance.
be out of sight from prisoners, unless actively hunting rebellers (do not camp restricted areas). St’s do not count as the stack of prisoners therefore there is no reason for a guard to follow an ST around.
pick up any T weapon caches/secrets, even if it was dropped by a T (except if it's interfering with gameplay or on a freeday).
partake in T-Secrets without actively pursuing the T's unless it is LR/freeday (do not camp secrets).
show favoritism towards specific prisoners.
shoot into a smoke if players are supposed to be in the smoke.
Type !guard to join the queue for guard team, and type !leave to leave the queue.
As a warden, you must NOT ...
open cells without giving orders.
keep prisoners in cells after 2 minutes from round-start. (unless there's a lot of rebelling going on)
give orders for prisoners to carry out whilst inside cells (exception: orders to drop/throw contrabands).
give orders over text-chat. Orders must be given over mic-chat only.
give orders that refer to prisoners as anything else other than T's, Terrorists or Prisoners.
give special treatment to some prisoners unless earned in a game (you can only give 1st place st, 1st place st must be stated before game start), exchanged for a contraband, or for blood-hounding (all ST's must be revoked once there are 2 non-rebels without ST). (ST cannot kill a prisoner as a special treatment)
keep prisoners crouched without allowing them to stand-up to type.
refuse to repeat unless you have repeated it once already without being disrupted.
put guards in harm's way without their consent.
revoke a freeday, warday or hide and seek given by another warden before 4:00 (round timer counts down).
restrict prisoners from using text or voice chat (exception: !peace command).
give dishonest, confusing, misleading or trap commands, for example:
Lying to the Prisoners, for example: you can't pardon a rebeller only to kill them once they come out even though they didn't rebel since the pardon.
Confusing the Prisoners, for example: "When I say go which is not now, go to the blue circle", then opening the cells and killing everyone who went - or giving so many orders quickly to make them lose track...etc.
Misleading the Prisoners, for example: "When I type go, all Prisoners go to the big cage", then saying "go" over mic and killing Prisoners who went.
Trapping the Prisoners by using terms that are closely familiar to the one they are waiting for you to say/type, for example: typo's, saying "glow" when awaiting to say "go".
The warden must follow these guidelines when playing games to ensure a fair and enjoyable round:
Games must be explained by the warden before starting.
Games must give all prisoners a chance to fairly participate and compete.
Example: It is unfair to force prisoners closest to winning to keep on going when there are prisoners behind them.
Games that are custom (not a map-game) must not be too difficult unless the warden can successfully demonstrate it in no more than 1 attempt.
Games must not be played inside cells.
Games must not delay the round, and they must be productive (there must be winners/losers).
Games must not reward prisoners with a prize to pick more than 2 prisoners to die.
The first game played at the start of each round must be a map game that can be stopped or recalled. This game cannot be the same game played at the start of the previous round.
Games cannot be played twice in the same round.
Exception: This rule does not apply if a prisoner stops the game before any prisoners die.
Games must not kill more than 50% (ignore decimals) of the participants in a single game.
Exception: This rule does not apply for special days.
Exception: This rule does not apply for luck-based or opinionated games.
Exception: This rule does not apply for prisoners who could not complete the game UNLESS the warden is able to either 1. class the "furthest/closest" X prisoners as winners or 2. use the "hot lava" concept to eliminate prisoners without killing more than 50%.
Rules for Special Days
Any type of special day can only be given once per 3 rounds. The warden must activate and choose as special day using the !warden menu or by typing !sd in chat. The warden MUST explain the special day.
Day: Custom Day
A customized day where wardens can make up the rules of the day as long as they are in accordance with the Jailbreak/Server rules( Games must be played to kill off T’s, they CANNOT be killed needlessly).
All players will fight against each other until there is only one player that remains. You are not allowed to team with other players.
Day: Ghost War
Players will start off invisible to others once they become visible they must fight in a free-for-all against others until there is only one player remaining. Note: Players will alternate during the round from being invisible to being visible.
Day: Gun game
Each player starts with the same gun. Every time you kill 2 enemies with your gun you're upgraded to the next weapon, if you get a kill with a knife you are upgraded with one kill. Anyone killed with a knife is demoted to the previous weapon. The match ends when someone cycles through all the weapons.
Day: Hide and Seek
Warden must give Prisoners at least 45 seconds to hide but cannot exceed two minutes from cell opening. Guards must stay in armory and cannot peek out of armory or into vents until it is expansion time. Prisoners may hide in restricted areas except armory and Guards can go into restricted areas without suspicion. Guards must kill all prisoners with the exception of the last two prisoners that reach last request.
Day: No Scope Day
Players will spawn in with scouts and low gravity. Players will have to shoot others without having the ability to scope in with the scout to win the round. Last man standing wins.
Day: One in the Chamber
Each player spawns in with a Desert Eagle which has one bullet in the gun, if you get a kill with the one shot you will be rewarded another bullet. If you miss the shot you will have to knife another player to receive another bullet. The round goes on until there is one player left.
Day: Teleport War
Every time a player shoots another player he will swap locations with the player shot. They will continue to swap locations until one of them is ultimately killed. Round will continue until only one player remains.
Warday zones must provide Prisoners a safe chance to get guns and leave armory and zones must not be accessible only via a closed-entrance (example: closed door or teleporter). Warday automatically expands at 2:00. Guards must not leave the warday zone until it has been expanded (unless Last CT), and they must not kill outside the warday zone unless they are on-route & were attacked first (self-defense). Prisoners must actively pursue the Guards and you cannot !lr on a warday.
Day: Zombie Day
Prisoners will need to fight to survive the infected CT’s if caught they will be killed. Prisoners will get time at the start of the round to find areas of the map they can hold to fight off the infection. Round ends when either the infected are wiped out or the prisoners are wiped out.
Rules for Last Request
Last Request (LR) is achieved once there are only 2 non-rebel prisoners remaining. You can type !lr in chat to select a last request, or you can do a Custom LR if the guards choose to participate.
You must not use "Hot Potato" in a spot that will kill your opponent or in any location that has the potential to restrict the weapon from being transferred between one another.
You can cheat during a last request, but it is rebelling.
You can activate !lr as a rebeller.
Guards may decline custom LR's or unreasonable LR locations.
Saying no rules implies that any form of cheating is permitted.
If a prisoner begins the LR without stating any rules, basic rules (no cheating) are implied.
If a prisoner is located in a Restricted Area during LR then they should be asked to leave the Restricted Area, do NOT kill T’s in a Restricted Area during LR unless they are actively rebelling.
Rules for Specific Games
Below are specific rules and exceptions to certain games. You are allowed to play any game that is not listed below as long as it follows the rules above.
Gun toss is played by throwing the gun as far as you can from the starting point before you touch the ground- furthest being the winner - this rule is implied unless stated otherwise.
Shot for Shot/Mag for Mag/No Scope
These games are played by each player shooting at each other with the specified weapon. During LR, Guards must not begin shooting before asking the T if they have any specific parameters or location.
First Reaction/Last Reaction
You must not play this game unless there are 15 or less Prisoners alive, during this game only 2 prisoners can be killed off. FR/LR must not be the first game of the round. All orders are singular unless warden states otherwise.
You must tell Prisoners that you are now playing First Reaction / Last Reaction.
When the warden says "Last Reaction " then the LAST person to do the action dies - and anyone who does not do the action at all will also die - but when the warden says "First Reaction " then the FIRST person to do the action dies.
You must not play any luck-based game unless there are 15 or less Prisoners alive, and it must not be the first game of the round.
A luck-based game is any game that does not require any skill and instead requires 100% luck, for example: couch game, duck hunt, roulette, wheel of fortune, keep or pass...etc.
All custom luck-based games must guarantee at least a 25% chance at survival.
You must not play this game unless there are 15 or less Prisoners alive, and it must not be the first game of the round.
Simon says can only start with "Simon says we are now playing simon says. Simon says I'm Simon" and end with "Simon says we are no longer playing simon says. Simon says I am no longer Simon".
Warden cannot trick T's into simon says starting or ending - prisoners must not be killed for either following the command or not.
When the warden says "simon says" then an action the prisoners must follow the action. If the warden does not say "simon says" before the action, then prisoners must not follow the action.
Prisoners must AFK freeze between commands (unless otherwise stated).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- TTT Server Rules
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- RULES UPDATED - 28th November 2021
Refer to the text in RED for the latest rule updates.
How to Play: In TTT, three different roles are randomly assigned to players each round: Innocent, Detective, Traitor.
Innocents: An innocent is suspected as a traitor until they have proven themselves to other innocents and detectives. Innocents have to survive and use the process of elimination to figure out who the Traitors are, and kill them.
Detectives: A detective is a proven innocent who has access to special equipment to find out who the Traitors are. Detectives are a great asset to the process of elimination, which makes them a high-profile target.
Traitors: A traitor is shown as an Innocent to everyone, except for other Traitors. Traitors must use the element of surprise, deception and their special equipment to eliminate all the innocents and detectives without getting caught and killed.
Follow your assigned role, and have fun!
Press (F) to toggle the flashlight.
Press (E) to identify bodies.
Use team chat (U) to talk with fellow traitors.
Type @ in any chat (Y or U) before your message to contact an admin in admin chat (red text). Note: Only reports on players, concerns, or questions about the game should be the only subject matter while utilizing this command.
!servers (can join other eGO servers directly by using this command)
All TTT rules are enforced by our [admins]'s at their discretion - if you have a problem or a concern with how a situation is being handled or need clarification on a rule, please contact a member of CS leadership or use the Contact Leadership section on the forums. Our rules are designed to create and maintain fun and fair game play.
TTT General Rules
Do not Random Death Match (RDM). You need sufficient evidence (see traitorous behaviors below) proving that a player is a traitor to kill them.
Do not ghost - Giving out any information about the game to alive players using any method of communication.
Do not prop kill (Tripmines, Map doors/breakable surfaces, Map props Ex. TNT blocks on Minecraft maps).
Do not door spam.
Do not prop surf or glitch on any map.
Do not kill players based off of sound, location, or weapon. You must have DEFINITIVE proof to kill a player.
Do not kill rule-breakers or seek revenge - only shoot in self-defense and not for previous rounds reasons.
Do not use an in-game name that cannot be pronounced or typed.
Do not complain - report rule violations in admin chat (type @ in team chat followed by your message).
Do not kill players just for shooting their weapon.
Do not kill players for not responding to an alive check.
Must be actively pursuing the round and may not camp/delay.
May not present a player as a traitor without a valid reason (see traitorous behaviors below).
May not kill a player for disobeying orders.
Need 1 DNA scan on a dead innocent body or detective body before calling a Kill on Sight (KOS) on a player.
May call KOS on players were seen committing a traitorous act (Running over unID'd bodies situationally, buying traitor weapon in their sight, placing a death station in their sight, etc.).
Must be actively pursuing the round and may not camp/delay.
May not present a player as a traitor without a valid reason.
May not traitor bait - making it look like you are a Traitor when you're actually an Innocent.
Must actively attempt to complete the objective and may not camp/delay.
May not kill or damage other Traitors unless acting in self defense (includes using map objects).
DNA Scanner (Detective) - Type !shop -> Select “DNA Scanner” -> Press E on bodies (All scans will pop up in chat in red text with who killed them and with what weapon)
Green body scans = Call KOS (That person is kill on sight)
Blue body scans = Call KOS
Red body scans = Call PROVEN (That person is proven innocent)
Pay attention to your scans. If a green body and red body are killed by the same player then their role is not definitive.
Pay attention to “world” kills. Those mean they weren’t killed by a player
Jihad (Traitor) - buy the item -> press your inspect key twice (default is “f”)
C4 (Traitor) - buy item -> right click -> select time option
Any player can defuse a tripmine (hold interact key - default is “e”). It’s like defusing a bomb in comp.
A tripmine may be shot but does deal damage (can count as RDM or server disruption).
ID (Innocent) - buy item -> type !id (will prove yourself innocent and display to all alive players in chat)
Teleport (Traitor) - buy item (the point at which you buy the item will be your checkpoint for the teleport) -> type !tele when ready (will teleport you back to checkpoint)
Taser (Innocent & Detective) - shooting a player with a taser will display their role in chat and will highlight them for a short period of time
This does NOT kill a player so killing for using this is considered RDM
You should NOT kill for any non-suspicious behavior - the following acts are considered as non-suspicious:
You walked into their line-of-fire.
Activating non-traitor traps when no other players are at risk (This includes secret rooms on certain maps).
Self Defense - attacking another player who has intentionally attacked you first (except line-of-fire) without valid reason.
Refusing to respond to live-checks, ammo checks, slot checks...etc.
Door spamming (this is griefing and should be reported to admins).
They are walking as though they have a menu open, not moving or AFK.
Being one of many people who have the same weapon used to kill someone or not nearby their death.
You should NOT kill carelessly and without reasonable or valid evidence or justification. The following are considered suspicious acts:
Aiming at, watching and stalking players (all three combined are a single act).
Not co-operating with Detectives or being tested.
Not responding in a reasonable time-frame when confronted with an accusation.
Being equipped with any traitor-only weapon (M4A1-S, MP5-SD).
Being the only one with the same weapon used to kill/injure someone else nearby their death.
Being called out for 'kill-on-sight' (KOS) by an Innocent.
Calling out a KOS on someone who did not damage you first and is an innocent.
Being the survivor of a gun-fight, or someone nearby a body - be alert, don't be mindless - identify the body and communicate.
Being poisoned by the “Poison Gun” item while in a secluded area with few players around.
Not receiving radiation damage from the poison gun.
Shooting through walls, doors, fences, windows etc. (any plain where you can’t define who is on the other side (See FAQ for questions about this rule).
You MUST kill for traitorous behavior, failure to do so can be considered as traitorous - the following acts are considered as traitorous:
Entering/leaving a traitor only area.
Being called out for 'kill-on-sight' (KOS) by a detective.
Shooting around or towards other players, unless for self defense.
Throwing lethal grenades towards other players without prior warning, unless for self defense. (Throwing flashes or smokes are NOT Traitorous acts.)
Declaring a KOS on an innocent.
Calling out Traitors without reason or intentionally making players suspect you are a traitor.
Not identifying, hiding, destroying bodies or hanging them to surfaces.
Activating any sort of trap that almost, or did kill/injure another player.
Stating they killed a traitor, when they did not (assisting in the killing of a traitor, is considered they killed a traitor).
Destroying/damaging the Traitor-Tester or a Health Station (doing this as an Innocent is griefing). Exception: Destroying the Traitor-Tester is only allowed when you are trapped and your life is in danger (such as C4 is planted and there's no way out other than through the vents behind the Traitor Tester).
Not destroying a Death Station (in range/line of sight of it - not shooting or attempting to destroy it - surviving abnormally)
Not moving away from your personal space after being reasonably told at-least twice. Detail: You are to give a reasonable chance and repeat as some may not hear you over others talking or may not react quickly due to mic-delay; Your personal space is not the room, but rather being too close for comfort.
Killing or injuring non-suspicious players, or the detective (unless it was line-of-fire or were attacked first) or a proven-player. Detail: A proven Innocent is someone you witnessed kill a Traitor, or tested as an Innocent. They are NOT proven by word-of-mouth.
Random Death Match (RDM)
Killing or injuring teammates intentionally or without care is considered as RDM and is server-punishable - the following are examples:
Anyone throwing grenades at random, or without prior warning for your teammates to move.
Anyone using or setting up any sort of trap without care to teammates.
Assumptions based on how a player moves and talks.
Anyone killing a teammate with a glitch or any other way without valid reason.
Innocents killing solely for minor suspicious behavior (careless and not reasonable).
Innocents killing solely for not following request(s).
Killing a player for disobeying an order.
Killing a player for pointing a gun at someone.
Intentionally acting like a traitor is considered griefing and is server punishable. Innocents should not be intentionally committing traitorous acts or claim to be a traitor.
Examples of T-Baiting:
A player admits to being a traitor (voice chat or text chat). Ex. “I’m a Traitor;” “I’m a T;” “I killed the detective”
Shooting or knifing toward/near players for the sole purpose of looking like a traitor.
Traitor Weapons are NOT a means for a KOS. Some spawn on maps and can be picked up by other players.
A player that does not receive damage from the poison gun CANNOT be KOS off this.
A player that is actively receiving damage from the poison gun CAN be proven as an Innocent.
Chasing a player with a knife or a taser is NOT means for a KOS. Furthermore, evading a taser is NOT means for a KOS.
Admins hold the right to take any action deemed necessary in order to maintain server stability.
CS Leadership and in-game admins decisions are final.
Out of Map Areas
There are several maps that can be exploited by going out of bounds. This is not allowed. Any area that is not reachable by normal means is considered Out of Bounds.
Exploiting the map does not mean that the player is KOS, and instead should be brought to the admins.
