Integrity - Each member must demonstrate a higher level of integrity than is generally present in the online gaming population. The goal of the Clan is to strive to be the best. We are known by those with whom we associate. If you do something that is reprehensible it reflects negatively upon us all. Others will remember your Clan tag longer than they will remember your name.
Respect - Each of us has talents, opinions, and capabilities worthy of the respect of the others. More importantly, there is a very real person behind the character that is dealing with real life issues, has feelings and needs and which must never be ignored. Your disagreement with another does not mean that the other is less talented or knowledgeable. Swearing in anger at someone, being insensitive to real life issues, and inflammatory comments will not be tolerated. The only criticism permitted will be constructive in nature. However, during events, egos and sensitivities must be put aside and instructions followed to the letter. Anything said during an event is to advance the Clan's success, and is not to be taken personally. Also, personality issues will not be tolerated. We need not like one another, but we will treat each other with respect and work towards our common goal. We will respect all citizens of the gaming world and treat them, as we would have them treat us. We will not wallow in the mud with those that would.
Loyalty - Each one of us needs help and support from time to time. The more you provide to your Clan mates, the more likely you are to receive help when you need it. Loyalty also reflects on how we portray our Clan to the entire online gaming population. Negative comments, personal information, or other sensitive issues should never be voiced outside the Clan.
Effort - We all continue to learn and grow as people and players. You are not expected to play flawlessly, nor should you expect others to be without fault. However, you are expected to use your best efforts to correct mistakes and improve. There will be zero tolerance for whining, complaining, selfishness or self-serving accusations. While we recognize that at times it may be important for you step away, we encourage you to plan accordingly and if you will not be able to fully participate in an event, we ask that you step aside and let another member take your position.
We do not want to win at all costs. We want to win at no cost. All members are expected to become tactically proficient in their jobs, to spend time to learn new tactics and strategies. We cannot gain experience or by losing due to inept tactics or being unprepared.
Personality Issues - No negative comments about members will be tolerated. With as many varied and diverse players as we have within the Clan, there are bound to be conflicts. Please try to resolve these issues as they arise, and if a mutually acceptable resolution cannot be reached, agree to disagree and drop the issue. Criticism of any decision must be done privately, unless part of an open post-mortem of an event, which will take place on a private board or in a private chat channel. There will be zero tolerance for any public criticism of any Clan member.
Clan Chat – Clan chat is any form of communication used by the Clan for events and day-to-day online gaming. It is not a personal forum for inappropriate, immature, or malicious language directed toward another. Making comments in a joking or friendly teasing manner is acceptable if both parties know that it is in fact a joke. Members caught using purposely-offensive language directed at another member will receive a warning from the Clan Leader or an Officer. What constitutes a warning will be at the Clan Leader or the Officers' discretion (consider the use of ANY offensive language grounds for a warning). There will also be instances during events where Clan chat needs to remain un-cluttered. Any unnecessary chat during these large-scale events, where communication is a 'win-or-lose' factor, is grounds for a warning. Members can receive only one warning before being reprimanded. The following is a list of possible consequences:
- 1st Warning - Written or verbal warning
- 2nd Warning - Clan Point deduction and/or game team suspension
- 3rd Warning – Clan Membership will be reviewed by the Council and voted on
