  3. Hi Mojo, I see you often too! Nice to meet you. Feel free to join us on discord 😄
  4. Spawn Camping Guidelines Spawn camping is allowed, excessive camping is not. Example of camping that is not excessive: You are passing a tunnel without destroying it but kill an enemy on it to pass by. Obviously if you are seen repeatedly at a tunnel you cross into being an excessive camper. You may not: Watch a squad tunnel and kill enemies as they spawn. Be in a position that allows you to lock down / camp a default spawn on a map Ignore server admins, staff or mods If asked to move this is considered a warning, failure to move will likely result in kick or session ban. You may: Kill enemies on a squad tunnel as you advance to destroy the tunnel. If there are two or more default spawn locations and the other is not being camped, in this situation camped players must pick the other location as they have the ability to evade the camper. Decide not to fall back from a point until killed. It is for the attacking team to ensure they have cleared the point and if re-spawning team mates are killed it is not considered camping, as in this case the attacking team failed to clear the point. There is a time limit of TWO minutes from the point being taken in which you can do this. After this time it does become spawn camping and you MUST move.

Officers/Staff reaching the demotion point threshold may be demoted at more senior staff members discretion. If your points exceed the demotion threshold, you may be removed from Phantom Rebels. Points given accumulate over time, they also dissipate by one point a month. A member that is 16 years old or younger may not be promoted higher then "Officer". A member that is between 17 and 20 years old may not be promoted higher then "Staff". Admin roles require that you be 21 years or older. Those joining Phantom Rebels may not have more then 2 points logged against them.

They also have the power to blacklist and issue permanent points that never expire. The CiC has the authority to review any decisions made with regards to rule violations, points given, or a members membership, if the CiC disagrees, it is within their power to reverse a decision, reversals would only take place after a discussion at board level within Phantom Rebels. Once the CiC has gathered all information and opinions from the board, a final decision will be made. This does not mean once you have been issued with points they will be removed or a blacklist rescinded, you should only contact the CiC in such matters where you feel the individual that dealt with you did so unfairly or outside of established protocols. Staff & Admin - Role in Points, Removals & Blacklisting Staff may issue points for violations of rules and guidelines. They can also blacklist and remove individuals from Phantom Rebels if they reach the removal threshold. Blacklist and removal is subject to the HR Department, Admin and/or Council oversight. Two signatures by Staff count as an admin signature, the Admin's can overrule any signings on their behalf. Those who have been blacklisted or removed are discussed as a point of order at daily or weekly council meetings.

  16. As a member of Phantom Rebels, and (hopefully) as a decent human being, we should all strive to maintain a certain level of civility both within Phantom Rebels and to other players on-line. To this effect, all member should do what they can to abide by the following guidelines while representing Phantom Rebels. General Conduct Please try to maintain a reasonable level of profanity - No one minds occasional swearing here and there. But make it a point to meter your output in both game chats and Discord. This includes slurs. Remember Phantom Rebels was formed as a family friendly gaming clan, as such we would like to keep it friendly and open to everyone who wishes to join us. Do Not Assume Just because you in particular have no issue with a word it's OK for you to use it. And please don't try to justify it's use. Our team has staffed quite a few game servers and we've heard about every justification for rude or racist behavior. Basically, the harder you have to work to justify the statement, the more wrong you probably are. That and it's just easier to say "my bad" and to not do it again. Phantom Rebels admins or staff are not afraid to step in, so be warned, you will likely not enjoy how they handle it. Avoid Antagonistic Behavior We doubt many people signed up to Phantom Rebels to be harassed about their perceived level of skill or even their personal attributes or beliefs. Avoid sarcasm With people you do not know - Sarcasm is notoriously difficult to detect in written communication unless you know the person. Even in Discord, people forget that upwards of 80% of communication is handled via facial expressions and body language. These do not exist in either game chat or Discord. If a comment you made is taken out of context, you'd be better off apologizing and letting it drop than trying to explain why it was funny or needed to be taken within context. Note: Game chat and Discord chat are not avenues for personal disagreements. We recommend you handle it in a private chat because if a spat is held in public, a Phantom Rebels admin or staff will handle it and you won't likely enjoy how he/she does so. In-Game Chat Please keep non-Phantom Rebels related chat to a minimum. If you find yourself "talking over" someone asking a game or Phantom Rebels related question, you'd do well to step back and let that conversation finish up before resuming your unrelated conversation. Basically, don't act like a jerk-ass and keep the spam to a minimum and you'll be fine. Discord "The Bar" - Anything goes in here with respect to the general code of conduct. However, Phantom Rebels or in-game related discussion has priority. If you find the focus of the Bar has switched to something else, move yourself and your conversation partner to another room or request, nicely, for the game or Phantom Rebels related chat to be taken to another room. But do not try to talk over member discussing game related issues to discuss how your night at the bar went. Any other room will be used for whatever purpose the original joiners needed it for. Do not enter room and try to derail the discussion. Really, that's about it. If you have an issue, you know who the admins and staff are. Talk to them in private if you have issue and we will do everything to work it out. Report abusive behavior immediately. Originally written Fenix Rewritten by MadMax
  17. A note from MadMax.... Phantom Rebels was founded back in 2004 by myself. There have been circumstances over the years where individual members have been found to cause issues or disrupt the community, as such I have written a few things below, they should not to be taken as gospel, but can be referred to at any time by staff and enforced to whatever degree is needed as determined by those enforcing said rule. These are never a complete set of rules as we may find things we wish to add over-time, it is up-to members to ensure they are up-to-date on rules and we will do our best to ensure sudden rule changes are made aware to members. We reserve the right to add, amend, remove or suspend any rule(s) at any time, this clause is here to allow the Admins & Staff to be flexible and manage the community effectively. These rules apply to all Phantom Rebels Members, Officers Directors, Board Members, Admins & staff. These rules work in accordance with the strike system Phantom Rebels Rules If you plan on leaving Phantom Rebels we kindly ask that you tell a staff member why, as if this is due to something that can be changed we will do everything in our power to do so. If you make no contact with a Phantom Rebels member for over a month you may be removed from Phantom Rebels. You may be removed for breaking this but can return at any time. While playing under the Phantom Rebels name we kindly ask that you are present in a Discord voice channel when possible. We understand there are times where this is not possible, but being in a voice chat shows activity within the community and encourages others to engage and that community feel is what we are all here for. Whilst under the Phantom Rebels name you are representing Phantom Rebels and must behave appropriately. This means but not limited to: not being abusive, racist, harassing others, using slurs or spamming chat channels Doing anything else staff find disruptive to the community. Follow other communities server rules when playing in other game servers under the Phantom Rebels name. Other clans who feel our members have broken this please contact us here Being abusive will not be tolerated. Will result in disciplinary action / points or removal from Phantom Rebels. As we have allow members of all ages it's important to remember who is in the channel with you while on Discord. We provide a dedicated Discord voice channel (The Bar) that swearing is allowed in, while not in that channel please watch what you say while in front of our younger members if they are in or join the channel with you. You may be moved to "The Bar" if found using excessive language in front of younger members. This rule can is fully relaxed at times and is solely at a staff members discretion if present. A more senior staff member can reinstate this rule without needing a reason. The use of cheats, hacking or bots will not be tolerated. You will be banned and may be reported if found doing so. If in a voice channel and instructed by a staff member to "clear comms" that means to pause speaking immediately, failure may lead to removal from the channel. Rarely used but there are times staff need to be heard without any interruption or others stepping in. Phantom Rebels members may request new rules and they will be considered by the Phantom Rebels leaders, Please post your request in the members forum on the site. MOST IMPORTANT RULE - IS TO HAVE FUN!!

Penalty: Removal from the game Racism / Sexism Racist and sexist language is not permitted Some games such as Rising Storm 2 are exceptions to this, racist language may be used as it is part of the game community and such things said are intended to enhance the game rather then be offensive.

Penalty: Possible Automatic Removal. 1st Offence = Warning | 2nd = Removal and/or ban Exclusivity Do not come in and represent yourself to be an admin or a -=PR=- Member, nor act like you can control our servers. Server admins are in charge; you are not. Even if in your opinion Phantom Rebels is doing something wrong, it is not your problem, you are not paying for Phantom Rebels servers; it is not your server.
