Run quickly amid the explosions
and incoming fire
Shoot as far as possible, never surrender,
Yell out commands loudly and forcefully;
Rebuke cowardly and passive squads;
If you compare your statistics with others,
Enjoy your awards as well as your promotions.
Exercise caution in your artillery strikes,
Be your alter ego. Especially do not pad your stats.
Follow the orders of your commanders and squad leaders,
Keep a medic close by to revive you in sudden ambushes.
Beyond the military protocols,
You are a soldier on the battlefield
Therefore be at war with the enemy,
With all of its friendly fire, base raping, and spawn
Be careful. Strive to stay alive.
