But this is what happened to our van, which was OFFGAME. Damn good the back window did not brake. What if it was not us, but some local, real civilians?
We had just been dropped off by car ourselves, one of the BE TGB's.
On the way there, we drove pas a bunch of Dead Milo's (or ORC's?), who btw. did not wear off-game rags and caused quite a bit of confusion.
We also observed those guys being loaded into vehicles, BE-owned trucks as well as your van.
None of these trucks wore off-game rags that we could see, so the driver of our vehicle advised us it would be a good idea to stop these vehicles and destroy them, denying your side the transport points.
Your van was recognized as an in-game vehicle, as it had picked up players. We were 110% certain it was not local civilians, otherwise we would never have fired.
However, the small orange flag in your front window was not easily seen, and we were not sure if it was a deadrag or a red ORC/Milo flag.
As it was on an in-game road, and we knew it was not a local civilian vehicle, we deemed it safe to shoot.
I know the guys who fired, and they were using stock weapons at around 100m/s, that together with the range should not have caused any damage to the vehicle, which I am happy to hear it didn't.
Next time, if you bring a vehicle to a game and drive it on in-game roads, be prepared that it might be hit. At the very least use better markings to mark it off-game.
an ingame car has to be clearly marked with teamcolors. When this ingame-car is "destroyed" it has to be additional marked with a orange flag.
All other vehicles are Off-game like any civilian car.
