When a player takes damage, there is a chance for him to be affected by bleeding.
A bleeding effect is represented by a drop of blood with a cross inside, this icon appears next to the player's health bar and damages the player over time until his death, or until a bandage or rag is applied by or to the player. The bleeding will sometimes stop over time.
A player can have up to 5(?) bleedings effects, applying a bandage or rag will remove one of the effects per times used.
A bleeding player will see his avatar dropping streaks of blood from his body.
