As this new rule continues to be implemented, I'm sure more questions will arise. This one is concerning players who use vehicles right on the edge of uncap and run back when they start to take damage. The player in this clip was 100% camping in uncap at first, as far back as he could go just to shoot actives at jets. After several warnings, he finally shifted to the behavior showed in this clip. This behavior is fairly common with artillery trucks, attack helos, boats, even jets. How does this type of behavior fair with the new rule?

You can't run back to uncap for protection. Once you come out and engage you're fair game.

What statistic said is correct, that’s always been a thing. You can finish attacking even if they are gone to the their uncap area.

Yes, I know it is legal to pursue them, my question is whether or not they are allowed to run back into uncap like that and camp, which seems like it might be against the new rule not to camp in uncap

If they came into the battlefield initially to engage then camp in the uncap thinking that will save them, they are wrong. You are allowed to attack them.

Yes, my question is not whether he is protected or whether I can attack - my question is whether that player was breaking the new rule not to camp in uncap.
If I had submitted that clip in the "Players to Watch Out For" thread, what would have been the result?
Sorry, I'm just trying to understand the borderline cases of the new rule.

The answer is no, they can't stay in upcap and attack. If they come out and run back then start camping they are breaking the new rule. It's pretty natural to run back to uncap as a safety net, but that's never kept you safe even before the new rule.

You mean the players own uncap? No he isn’t breaking any rules in that case but you can engage. Sorry if I’m still not understanding the question.

Ok, I think I understand. Players are still allowed to retreat back to uncap (and then they can be pursued and attacked in uncap just like always), but with this new rule they are not allowed to keep attacking once they are inside uncap. Thanks for the clarification. I'm not trying to make things more complicated I just wanted to better understand the rule.

See you on the Battlefield!

P.S. if I'm still getting it wrong lemme know..

No problem, and yes if the person is exploiting the rule then the player would be in the wrong. It’s a very unique example and usually a long enough video clip will be required. But all pointless if you can get him :)
