Eternal Vanguard Syndicate Code of Conduct
Eternal Vanguard Syndicate is defined and governed by our Code of Conduct. We hold all members, high ranking officers and rank/file members to a high standard while we interact with the public and each other in and out of game.
All community rules are subject to change by the community leadership (EVS Command & Senior Officers). Changes will be made to the Code of Conduct (CoC). Followed by a community announcement and/or meeting.
All games and their communities within EVS will be referred to as “syndicates.” Example: “ESO Syndicate.”
Section 1: Honor
Respect: All members will respect all EVS members regardless of rank and/or billet. Mutual respects of our fellow community members is one of the hallmarks that EVS has been founded on.
EVS employes a military style rank and billet system. These ranks and billets are earned and never rewarded. If a lawful order is given by a higher ranking member, the expectation is that lower ranking members will comply
EVS is not a griefing community. We will not initiate hostile action towards any player (EVS member or public) in an open world setting. When PvP is the designed action, this rule would not apply.
Trolling, spamming, and flaming in-game, on official/unofficial forums, and in voice coms is prohibited.
The Chain of Command refers to the military style rank structure.
EVS uses this Chain of Command to resolve all conflicts, issues, and problems within the community. The leadership and officers are here to services the members and to make EVS the best gaming community it can be.
Please do not post grievances on the community forums or in in-game chat. Rather find an officer and report the issue to them. They will in turn to resolve it or take it up the Chain of Command.
When using the EVS forums vulgar material, pornography, cheats or other materials that would be deemed unsuitable or illegal is forbidden.
Discipline for breaking any rules of EVS, will be handled at the syndicate level and left to the discretion of the CO and/or XO of that syndicate. Discipline actions can range from a reprimand to expulsion from the community. Community leadership can become involved if it is requested by the CO and/or XO of the syndicate. Community and Command leadership can and will intervene in any disciplinary process that they deem necessary.
If a member feels that the discipline action taken against them is unjust, that person can appeal it to the Community leadership and Command leadership. In that order.
EVS Command (Ayzreal, -V-, Plague) can and will remove any member that they feel does not have the best interest in EVS or break any rule in of the CoC.
Section 2: Resilience
In gaming communities inevitably goes through periods of growth and change. EVS will eventually do the same We expect our members be able to adapt and overcome all these good and bad changes.
Section 3: Commitment
Commitment and loyalty to the community is paramount. EVS is a “progression content clearing” community/guild in all gaming syndicates. Because of this, we ask all members to represent EVS at all times.
For games that allow being a member of multiple clan/guilds; players can belong to other guilds. However, when clearing game content, we require EVS to be the primary content clearing guild/community.[color]
