CoC

Our simple rules are to make sure everyone has a great time here but if you do have any questions are concerns please bring them to a Lead or higher.

Our clan utilizes Discord to communicate with each other. Discord voice channels are required when playing a PW game (how else will you talk to us). Not only is Discord used to help each other during games, but also for clan meetings. Some channels on our Discord server require Push-to-Talk in order to communicate. These channels are labeled with (PTT). It is wise that you set up a Push-to-Talk hotkey for these channels.

Activity, with any clan, is an absolute must. That being said, every member from the basic member to the CEO must stay active on discord and in game. We require members to be active in voice channel once a month as well as have chatted within that same period. If you are going to be gone longer than a month or unable to stay active, our LOA (leave of absence) will excuse you for being gone/inactive.

Our promotion policy is based on individual activity and overall clan performance. Kills will not get you promoted. Often times, leads will recognize their members for all actions clan related, in, or out of a game and recommend them for a promotion or award. Promotions are something to congratulate other members on achieving, not show jealousy and the “it should have been me” mentality.

III. Donations/Server Payments/MISC

3.1 Donations/Server Payments/MISC

Donations are accepted by anyone who wishes to contribute to the clan servers (website, game servers, prizes). Donations are greatly appreciated, however this does not imply that the donor will advance in the clan nor necessarily get accepted into the clan. Project Warfare may implement special levels or services for people who contribute to the servers. Contributions should only be made for the well-being of the clan and not for personal gain. Project Warfare funding will be handled appropriately by Project Warfare Leadership. Further, all Project Warfare expenses and funding will remain public knowledge and will be reported monthly by leadership in efforts to maintain transparency.

These rules can be changed or altered at any time by the clan. It is up to every member of Project Warfare to know these rules.

If you feel that a new guideline to our COC measures needs to be implemented, please leave your suggestions by opening a discussion in our request/feedback forum thread.
