For some, the overall enjoyment of the online gaming experience is amplified by company they keep, to the point where it trumps the game’s content itself. In an effort to expand these connections and carry them through many games for years to come, Unlimited has been established. The following document describes the values and goals of the community as well as the rules that promote the kind of atmosphere that can be appreciated by its members.
Goals and Values – Unlimited to the Core
Unlimited is dedicated to building a community around the quality of players we invite, rather than the need to be the most or best “anything”. That’s not to say that our practices do not include a competitive edge, on the contrary, Unlimited is called home by members with seasoned gaming backgrounds in organized PvP and PvE. However, skill can be taught, personality is harder to mold. Unlimited members are players who seek to explore the extent of their ability and perform beyond them. Steady progression and skill improvement are important, parallel to community relations. A well-defined direction and an organized leadership that utilizes community feedback pushes Unlimited forward. Unlimited is motivated by a natural drive that excels its members to top tiered achievement, rather than the "need" most hardcore guilds have.
Code of Conduct
Once you join Unlimited, your actions reflect upon the entire community, not just in the game(s) you participate in. Any misconduct or disrespect of fellow players will not be tolerated. We want to establish and maintain a reputation for being a quality community, full of helpful and active members who are an excellent addition to any game--do your best to live up to these expectations for your own enjoyment, as well as those of your fellow gamers.
- Be active and participate – Within your “able capacity”, enjoy the game with your fellow community members (guild, clan etc.). Participate in events organized by the leadership, and when you commit, show up.
- Members are expected to place guild objectives before individual objectives in-game. We want team players who see working with a team as paramount in their gaming experience. Those who play for selfish gain are not welcome. With group success, individual success is inevitable.
- Avoid arguing policies and decisions made by the leadership. We encourage open communication and value the opinions of all of our community members; however, sometimes hard decisions must be made for the good of the majority – in most cases these decisions will have been made due to the needs of your fellow members. Complaints should be brought directly to the leadership.
- Unlimited will recruit mature team players who carry themselves in a way that positively reflects on the community; members are expected to uphold our reputation. While wearing our tag in-game, you are expected to act in accordance with our charter and code of conduct.
- Members should try to improve their performance in-game to the best of their abilities. Help will be made available by more able players and this support should be passed on to others in need as your abilities improve.
- Avoid malicious racism, sexism, bigotry or promotion of real-life violence towards another person. This includes malicious use of slurs based on race, color, creed, sex, or sexual identity – Know your audience, when to joke, and when it’s best left for private conversations.
- All members should treat each other with respect; If issues should arise within the guild, handle them via the appropriate channels, privately and/or through interaction with leadership.
- Unethical play will not be tolerated. Those caught using exploits, hacking, etc. will be removed from the entire guild and Unlimited community.
- Members are expected to maintain a certain activity level on our forums and TeamSpeak. Verbal communication is vital in all relationships, the ones forming between members here are no different. Posting and keeping up to date on the forums is just as important. Teamspeak activity while in-game is mandatory.
- Members are expected to be familiar with the goals of their division, and are to conduct themselves in a manner that helps achieve those goals.
