GUILD PvP RULES
IMPORTANT: Make sure to read the rules and exceptions completely. If you engage in any behavior listed below, you must realize that the guild as a whole cannot support you and you will be taking things into your own hands. If you play Free for All (FFA) and agree with opponents on rushing and teaming one another, that's totally on you. By default and design, we are not a total PvP guild and won't subject the entire guild to targeting by other guilds.
**Playing Style NO's**
1. NO RUSHING
This occurs when a player is attacked in PvP before all parties say the word "go" to initiate the fight.
2. NO SPAWN KILLING
This is when a player is killed at the time of spawning.
3. NO TEAMING
This is when a player(s) is/are victimized by a larger group of players (i.e. 2 vs 1 and so forth).
**Guild and Personal Image**
4. NO NAME-CALLING
As in general PvE, Epic Impact does not and will not support any name-calling, to include the use of "nub/noob" or anything similar (unless it is among friends and is in jest).
5. NO SLANDERING
Slander against another PvP player, whether in-guild or external, will not be tolerated. If you are unhappy with another player, speak to them via PM, ignore/block them, avoid them, or report them to a Guild Officer or the Guild Master to take appropriate action.
6. NO RUMORS
The guild does not tolerate the starting or spreading of rumors of any kind.
7. NO BULLYING
This should go without saying, but bullying makes you look immature, mean, and downright nasty. It also makes the guild look bad if one of its members is bullying another person. Therefore, no bullying is tolerated in either realm, PvE or PvP.
WHAT TO DO IF ANY OF THE ABOVE HAPPENS TO YOU:
IMPORTANT: NEVER, under any circumstances, attempt contact with another guild's GM to report a violation by one of their members unless expressly asked by the Epic Impact GM to do so. This creates unnecessary confusion and crosses authoritative boundaries. Not to mention, it makes a guild member potentially look like a "whistle blower" or trouble maker. We do not want our members putting themselves in that situation. That is why you have a GM of your own.
NOTE: All reporting toons will be kept confidential unless the external guild's GM requests the proof to be sent to them; however, all attempts will be made to only share information on a need-to-know basis.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU ARE THE CULPRIT:
If another GM contacts Epic's GM with proof that a member has done something unsavory in PvP and it violates one of our established rules, one of the following will occur:
O: If it is an officer of the guild, the GM, cofounders, and all other officers will convene to decide the fate of the officer in question. If the offense is minor and has only occurred once, the officer may simply be asked to cease any further actions. If the situation escalates or is severe in nature, the officer will be ordered to stop all PvP activity. For extreme cases (and with consideration of prior offenses), the officer may be placed on probation for three (3) months, where he/she will be demoted to recruiter status. Any further violations will result in permanent demotion.
R: If it is a recruiter of the guild, all of the procedures for officer apply - EXCEPT the probationary period for a recruiter will result in him/her being demoted to member statuS. Any further violations will result in permanent demotion.
M: If it is a general member of the guild, depending upon the severity and length of time the member has spent in the guild, he/she may simply be asked to stop all violations of Epic Impact PvP rules. If it occurs again or the first offense is deemed serious enough, the member shall be removed from the guild.
**In serious cases, the GM may waive the officer roundtable and take immediate action in regards to officer, recruiter, or member disciplinary action.
