AMG Clan Rules

AMG Clan Charter

Here at AMG we feel it is necessary to set out a clear set of rules and guidelines for how we expect our members to conduct themselves, what is expected of them, and how they will benefit as a member. This might sound simple and/or obvious, but these are important things to remember as a member of this clan.





Being a Member:

When you're in-game, it is expected that you are working toward the goal the team is trying to accomplish, not just trying to get the most kills. There are many people who play online games who believe they are heroes. Some of them are genuinely good at playing the games we have on offer; however, we are not in the clan to elevate any specific individuals to a higher level than the clan as a whole.
Treat Others with Respect, Integrity, Honesty and Friendship

An important element as a member of this Clan is respect. If you don't respect your fellow clan mate, then how can you expect others to respect you? This goes for the people we play with as much as your fellow clan mates. Online gaming attracts trash talking and animosity, but we should always try to rise above it and continue to treat fellow players and opponents with respect. Remember that you are representing the clan as a whole whenever you play in public wearing the clan tags. Even if you are playing under a pseudonym, poor behaviour has a way of coming back to haunt you. Getting kicked or banned under a pseudonym can still have repercussions.
We expect honesty and integrity in our membership. It is very important that everyone within the clan can share their honest opinion with each other in a respectful constructive way. Honesty is important for the friendships we have within the clan, so if you don't feel you can be honest with us then this clan is not for you. Gaming online provides a sense of anonymity; however, words are powerful, and feelings can be injured easily. Be mindful of your tone so as not to offend anyone, including guests who visit our servers. Do not think that there will not be consequences for one's actions in-game.





Clan Rules:


Attitude: All applicants must demonstrate a good attitude and friendly personality, since by joining the AMG Clan they will become our representative in the games they play. If a member acts in an inappropriate manner, or breaks clan rules, then that member will be removed from the clan. While gaming, please join TeamSpeak as often as possible. Using a microphone is not a must, but we would appreciate it to get to know you.
   
Multi-clanning: All members are expected to be solely committed to the AMG Clan as their sole clan and should not play for any other clans.





Communication

In order for this clan to work properly, communication is vital. Just as we expect people to be honest, we feel it is important that our members are able to express their feelings and thoughts to each other. All our members communicate regularly through a program called Team Speak and on our Clan Forums. You need to have Team Speak installed and be registered on the forums so that you can communicate with us. We expect you to check our clan forum regularly for news, announcements, events and general updates.
When playing in clan servers or clan sponsored games, it is expected that you will wear your appropriate clan tag, and use team speak this is not mandatory but is preferred.
Teamwork, Fair Play and Clan Activity.

As a member of the AMG Clan you are at all times an ambassador for the clan. This means that your behaviour must at all times reflect the values of the clan. This goes beyond your attitude and friendliness towards other clan members and members of the public and extends to how you play on clan servers.

As a clan we are more interested in playing games to enjoy them and work as a team than for anybody's individual personal glory. This means that we expect members to play for the team regardless of if they are playing in a clan match or on a public server. So long as you are representing the clan, you should always carry our values with you.

Cheating is something that we as a clan will not tolerate. If it is discovered that you are using any aimbots or hacks you will be banned from our servers and expelled from the clan immediately without exception.

AFK? We know that many of you have other commitments and interests and involved in various job activities that occasionally may keep you from playing for extended amounts of time. If you feel you need to take a short leave from gaming and the clan, just let us know by posting on the members section of our forum. This is not mandatory but would be appreciated. Even if you decide to become inactive, you would be welcome to stay in touch with us and visit the forums; becoming busy doesn't mean you have to abandon your friends. If you have been unresponsive for 6 months, giving us no reason for your absence, we will assume you have chosen to leave and your name will be deleted from the member's list and clan sites. If your reasons for leaving are related to the clan itself, then we ask that you talk to a Leader beforehand so that we can resolve the problems (if we can).





Clan Resources:


Our clan website is at http://alliancemultigaming.com/
The website includes clan information, a member's roster, forums for discussions, various links and an online application page.

Servers: This clan operates and maintains servers for the enjoyment of our members and the AMG community. Most of the servers are open to the public. Most players are here to have fun, but there are some who cheat, are abusive, or just can't help but to use foul language. These are not the kinds of players we want on our servers. If these types of players cannot be persuaded into better game etiquette with warnings, then it may be necessary to kick or even ban them from the server.

On occasions the clan admins can kick players with a high ping / latency when it is detrimental to other players gaming experience.




Game Server Rules:

The following rules apply to ALL members of this clan.
Do not insult any player in any way. Instead, say nice shot, etc. Also say good game, or something similar at the end of the game. Basically, be a good sport.
If the teams are uneven, then switch to the team that has the least number of players. DO NOT stay or switch to the team that has the most players. This will just make it worse.
Any issue you have with another clan member should never be handled in a server. Any problems will be addressed outside of the game either by the Forums or e-mail. Insulting or arguing with another clan member in a server is punishable by either probation or expulsion from the clan. No clan member should ever disrespect another within a server.





Discipline and Leaving the Clan:

Although the clan is and always will remain a group of friends and a social gathering, it cannot exist without the rules discussed above. As such, it must be remembered that breaking these rules will not be without consequences.
The following offences are considered gross misconduct and will be punished by immediate dismissal from the clan:
Use of aimbots, cheats, hacks or glitching or any code which is considered illegal in professional gaming circles.
Repeated severe bad behaviour in contravention of the rules stated above concerning teamwork, fair play and mutual respect.





Hierarchy and the Decision-Making:

Although AMG Clan is friendly and open to suggestions from all members, to ensure the security of the clan, websites and servers, an element of hierarchy is necessary:



Clan Founders
The people who created the clan. They will oversee of how the clan is going and provide support and advice to all members, including new recruits. Website admins, as well as developing the site need to make sure the site is up and working.


Leaders:
There responsibility is to lead the clan from the front and to make decisions above the members, admins and senior admins. Taking the lead on the big decisions for the clan. This will involve steering the ship and making the important decisions such as website, gaming servers, clan structure, recruitment, promoting members.


Senior Admins:
Whilst they will have normal admin duties (as below) - they will also when needed be responsible for keeping an eye on, helping and guiding regular admins. Also making decisions where the regular admins may not be comfortable in doing so. Are also required to liaise with the founders and leaders, particularly if they are important matters that will require approval or guidance from the founders and leaders.


Admins:
Admins for AMG are responsible for admin on our game servers. They are in place to ensure the servers run as smooth as possible. Their remit is to and to keep a watchful eye on bad language (racist and homophobic comments and abusive players) and to deal with them accordingly. To ensure any players on the server that are caught cheating are banned immediately from the servers.


Members:
Asked to keep an eye on for suspicious or bad behavior and calling an admin if and when needed.


Recruits:
Get to know all AMG members and are encouraged to join both Teamspeak and the game servers ,be active and participate as much as possible whilst on the 1 week trial. Joining teamspeak during the trial gives new recruits the best possible way to get to know the existing AMG members.

 



Conclusion

Being a member of the AMG Clan means more than just wearing the tag of an elite group of gamers. AMG is a Clan where people can meet, share, grow, experience, and appreciate life from different perspectives as we reach into many global communities. Take the time to live and learn and enjoy a game that is just fun to play!

By applying to join the clan it is assumed you have read, understood and agreed to this charter.


:) Happy Gaming :)
