After you do so you come to the organizers tent on your base put your nickname in the causalities roster and you have 60 minutes until respawn from the moment being hit but you must visit HQ to do so.
Dead players are not allowed to talk with the others until reaching Respawn place. After respawn time, the player must walks back to his unit. During this journey he is not participating in the game and he can’t be killed. Use fastest route and not go through fighting areas. Have your reflection west on.
Medic rules are an MILSIM add-on in order to simulate closer reality situation.
For people who are not able to understand the medic rules or they think there are too complicated for them – we suggest to simply go to respawn after you are hit.
How to react when you get hit:
- Player gets hit!
- Player pulls out his death rag (=reflex west)
- Wounded player got 10min without medical treatment or stabilization until he dies.
- A stabilized wounded player got 20min without medical treatment until he dies.
How to stabilize a player: To stabilize a wounded player, put him on his back and put his death rag back into his gear.
Advantage of being stabilized: A stabilized wounded player will have extended time to 20min for medical treatment until death.
Disadvantage of being stabilized: The stabilized wounded player will be again exposed to enemy fire. If a stabilized wounded player gets hit, he dies immediately, so you do a good job in evacuate your stabilized wounded players out of combat!
When Medic arrives:

If medic comes he will ask you for number – you will say number from 1–40 – after medic makes your diagnosis and proceed with treatment – based upon the medic table you will be informed on the results.
