Often times when I'm on the server, I find myself observing a situation where a player has been slapped or even banned by a VIP Member, usually before being accused of tanking or lagging in some way. In certain cases, the punishment is justified and perfectly acceptable, however a lot of the time it is not, and is instead simply unnecessary and irrational.
As a VIP, you have specific administrative abilities which you possess solely for extreme situations where usage of them is essential to maintain a positive environment on the servers. This does not mean you have responsibilities, and your powers should not be treated as such.
You cannot, and should not be running around threatening or punishing every player who you consider to be tanking or lagging. MTA is also a game reliant on aim, and the fact that not all bullets are going to hit the enemy must be considered before jumping to any conclusions. Like I mentioned, there are certain cases where specific players are known to have poor connections, thus tanking shots - taking action is acceptable in this case, as it is unfair for other players. If you feel a player is truly and blatantly tanking shots for no apparent reason, you should confront them in a calm and civilised manner and inform them of the issue - if they choose to be disobedient and show no sign of cooperation, you may punish them in a way that is suitable and necessary next time they do something that is unfair and breaks the rules. This is the best possible way you could handle a situation, rather than exaggerating it and turning it into a huge argument, which there seems to be many of recently.
To summarise, please be coherent when using your power against another player. If someone doesn't die after you've sprayed half a mag at them, it doesn't mean they're tanking or lagging - not all shots connect with the player. Obviously this doesn't include a whole mag on a player who isn't moving, because if they survive that then they're obviously lagging.
Slapping/banning should be a last resort.
Idk but i think this is for all vips and griffin is avoiding it maybe his aim is bad or somthing but on my screen he didnt shoot me eaven once and i killed him twice in row, so he slapped me.
