sniping's definition is different from person to person... but basically it's an act of, intentionally or not, attacking something after someone else attacked it, which arrive at the same tick or sooner.

So if I send an attack at someone 4 ETA... then u send urs at that same person, 3 ETA, u're sniping me. Most of the time it's considered as annoying and may lead to war.

To clarify, sniping is not against any technical rule. It is simply something that other players perceive as an act of malice or aggression. If you attacked a target, and the next tick you notice someone else attacked it too and will get there before you, then according to this description you would have been "sniped". When it happens to you, chances are that you will understand why it is frowned upon.

You will not suffer any admin punishment specifically for sniping.

some might consider sniping to be only when you send more units to a target specifically to kill the units of another attacker. this ones is even more annoying than what is stated above.

Right let me get this straight!! all Good battledawn players play by this rule if u attack something at the same tick as someone else but u know u was late and they sent 1unit u decide to send 2 so that u get that conquer/ wreckage / xtal / op.... it is not if they send 1st!! if your 3 eta and their 7 eta and they sent 1st if u decide to attack being 3 eta its not sniping if your closer its bloody tough luck.. People learn this!

Sniping rule -

1. never snipe ur own alliance members.. u may get kicked 4 that :shock:
also it'll be loss of oil/wood n tick for both of u..

2. never snipe a strong alliance they might get pissed n kill u n ur alliance :twisted:

3. as for small alliances or weak players it doesn't matter.. big alliances snipe small ones all the time :lol:
