Code of Conduct for gameplay is a straight forward issue. First and foremost you
represent Combined Assault Platoon at all times so good sportsmanship is a must.
A member will not engage in flaming wars with other gamers regardless of the
situation nor verbally assault them because you disagree with them or their tactics.
There will also be no putting down other players because of their skill level. Just
remember we all started new at one point or another. CAP does not cry hack. If
you suspect someone is cheating on a game hosted by CAP let an admin know so
they can observe the situation better. Tking your teammates intentionally will not
be tolerated. AFK players will not be assaulted in game. While it may be their fault
that they didn't log out upon being done with the game it's unfair to their
teammates to target these players for easy points. Ghosting will not be done at
any time during gameplay. You are allowed to report that you are down and the
last location you went down. These rules apply no matter if you're playing with us
as a team or off on your own visiting another server. Every time you play a server
with our tags on you are acting as a direct representative of CAP and its members.
There will be no racial comments at any time that would make another
member or visitor feel like less of a human being. Cussing on TS needs to be kept
to a minimum. First it shows a lack of respect for yourself and others and second
we do have children of members playing whose parents would prefer for their
children to not hear this kind of language. Just keep in mind who?s around and
what they would find to be inappropriate. Seeing as we all come from different
backgrounds and possibly even different countries you never know who even a small
joke to you may be offensive them. Every person that comes to visit us will be
treated with utmost respect. "Golden Rule" in effect! Feel free to help them out
with any question they may have regardless of rank. No excessive flooding of our
chat room. While it may be funny at times to some we find it to be extremely
A. Recruiting will be done by authorized personnel only. If you
are on a server and someone inquires on joining they should be directed to the CAP
forum recruits section where designated recruiters will take care of it. We're looking
for quality not quantity in CAP. All recruits will be of a minimum 18 years of age. All
recruits will have an R placed after there name to indicate that they are in recruit
status until they have completed the Battalion in processing which will consist of
setting up a TS account, Registering with the forums, and going over the SOP/COC.
Each recruit at the end of the SOP/COC familiarization will take a written test to
make sure they understand what has been explained to them. Recruits will be
allowed to play with the group but not participate in matches or scrimmages until
completion of the above. Training for new recruits will be executed the 1st and
15th of every month. New recruits will be given a class date and will be expected to
attend. If they have not completed the class within a one month period they will be
considered ineligible for membership. If a recruit has a valid excuse he must
submit in writing to the recruiter why he was or will be unable to attend the class
dates. At then end of every class the recruiter will send the information listed below
to the Battalion Commander for processing. The Battalion SGM then will assign the
new member to a company. At that point the Company Commander will decide
which platoon the member will be assigned and inform the Platoon Leader of
B. When a member is in the rank of E-1 they may be asked to
leave the group due to compatibility problems with the clan. Ex?maturity problems
without the approval of the Board of Disciplinary Review.
C. Family members of CAP members below the age of 18 are
authorized to join. When on the servers they will be under the supervision of their
sponsor at all times unless it has been approved by the Battalion XO that the
dependent can be on unsupervised. Requests for a dependent to be unsupervised
should be placed in writing to the Battalion SGM by the Company Commander.
ist of Requirements for recruiters to send to Battalion SGM *New players in game name *Location (country they live in) *Date of recruitment *Age
*Email address *Name all previous clan you been with and why *Company which player wishes to be assigned
Our primary mode of communication is TS. There are no real rules in the TS
format other than treat your fellow teammates with the respect that they deserve.
If we have guests on TS they will be extended the same courtesies we give to our
The forums are the place for us to voice our thoughts, arrange meetings, and
just talk with each other. It is not a place to have flaming contests with other
people. Keep in mind when using the forum that what ever you post might be
offensive to another member so be sure to keep it decent.
A. While we do not display our ranks in game to instill a sense
of pride and accomplishment in the group ranks are given. Promotions are based
on an individuals merit and commitment to the Battalion. Promotions to begin with
will be fairly quick paced. After E-4 though promotions will slow down tremendously
and be more competitive. Promotions after E-4 will be based on the needs of the
Battalion. So you as a member have to make yourself more competitive to achieve
those higher promotions. Things to avoid doing in concern to promotions. 1.
Asking for a promotion (We are aware of who was promoted last and how long
you've been with the Platoon.) 2. Going back and forth between leaders trying to
get a promotion. From the ranks of E-1 to E-4 promotions will be eligible based off
time in the Battalion. E-1 to E-2 will be a period of 3 months. E-2 to E-3 will be a
period of 4 months. E-3 to E-4 will be a period of 5 months. The Battalion reserves
the right to promote or demote personnel to properly fill the Battalion chain of
command. It is the responsibility of Platoon Leaders to keep track of their
platoon?s members and when they are due for promotion. When a member
becomes eligible for promotion they will submit in writing to the Company First
Sergeant who they recommend for the promotion and why that person shall be
promoted. Upon approval from the Company Commander that person will be
promoted. Officer promotions and Battalion enlisted promotions will be handled at
the Battalion level by the Battalion XO and must be approved by the Battalion
B. For the ranks of E-5 to E-8 a Promotion Review Board will be
convened consisting of the Battalion Commander, Battalion SGM, and the three
0-10?s of the Battalion to decide who will be promoted. These promotions will be
based off of the recommendations of the members supervisors and the needs of
the Battalion. This board can be conducted through chat or email.
C. To become an E-9. A member has to write a special letter why
he/she should get the next level. These individuals have contributed, completed
tasks that are assigned to them, being an ACTIVE member, etc...
All promotions above the rank of E-9 are based off your performance within the
clan. These will not be as easy to earn, as the previous ranks. You will have to show
great commitment to the clan. If you are promoted above the rank of E-9, it is very
likely that you will be required to assume additional responsibilities, within the clan,
as they arise. Please ask yourself, before submitting a request for promotion,
whether you have the time to accomplish additional tasks or, if you want the added
responsibilities. These tasks are often time consuming and not always fun.
The written request should include the following:
*Verification that you meet the minimum requirements to receive the
*Why you feel you have earned the promotion.
*What you have done for the clan, since becoming a member.
*What you are currently doing to benefit the clan.
*What you plan to do in the future to benefit the clan and how receiving
this promotion will aid you in accomplishing those tasks.
Awards are given to acknowledge the milestones that members achieve in
CAP. Award recommendations will be submitted in writing by Platoon Leaders and
turned into the Company First Sergeant. Company Commanders must then sign
their approval unless the award is designated that it must be approved by the
Battalion Commander. If this is the case the Company Commander must sign his
disapproval and then it must be forwarded to the Battalion Commander for
CAP BT Upon completion of recruitment status member is awarded this.

Chapter 8.Admin Privileges
Administrator rights are a privilege and not a right to every member. Only
First Sergeant and above will be given admin privileges. If an admin is found to be
abusing his powers he will be stripped of those privileges and demoted.
Guidelines for an Admin Kick
*Without being antagonized by a guest/member is verbally aggressive to another
*If a member/player is respectfully asked to control his/her behavior they fail to
*Hacking of any kind. For games that have punkbuster proof must be available.
For games that don?t have punkbuster the highest ranking member on the server
will have to make the call but they need to base if off what the general feeling on
the server is.
*Making room for a fellow member
*Wearing a tag in game that is offensive. Ex?racial, pornographic in nature,
comments about CAP.
*Tking or somehow impeding another players gameplay on purpose.
* Verbally harassing the admin
*Member of a hostile clan towards CAP
Chapter 9.Admin Monitoring
A. A group of members selected by the Command Group will be
tasked with the duty of making sure that Admin privileges are not being abused.
This group will be known only to the Battalion Commander and above. They will
report directly to the Battalion Commander on any issues in this department. All
violations of admin privileges will be document so there will be no denying violations
by the accused. Ex. Screen Shot or Video Evidence. They will also supply the
Battalion Commander of at least two people who were on the server at the same
time so they may be questioned on the events that happened. This check is in
place to make sure admins continue to do the right thing and are never aware when
they are being monitored. B. In the event an admin exceeding his authority he will be
notified of the problem and informed when the Disciplinary Board will be convened.
Admin rights may be suspended until the Board has been completed. If this is to
happen the member will be notified before hand.
Uniform in this context means the wearing of the CAP tags. When a member
is on a CAP server or a game that CAP is active in they must constantly be wearing
the tags. Unless a member has been specifically designated to be outside of tag
there is no reason for it. Wearing of the tag in games that CAP is not involved in,
while not required is strongly encouraged. You represent CAP not just as a player
but as a family member. Be proud to wear it.
Chapter 11.Board of Disciplinary Review
A. If the need to remove a member from the Battalion exists,
demotion is required to fix a disciplinary problem, or Admin rights need to be
removed it will be done by the Board of Disciplinary Review. The board will convene
at a designated time and decide the proper punishment for the member. The
board will consist of the accused next in line supervisor, Company Commander,
Company SGM, and The Battalion Commander. Any 0-10 reserves the right to sit in
on this board and cast a vote on the action to be taken.
B. If a member resigns or is excused from CAP for disciplinary
action that member will not be allowed to return to the Battalion. Exception to policy
on this is that the former member in writing explains why he left the Battalion and
what has changed that he thinks he would now be a good fit for the Battalion. The
Board of Disciplinary Review will then convene to decide if it is in the best interest of
CAP to allow the member to return. If the board decides the former member can
return he will be treated as a new recruit and go through the entire process again.
Return to former rank will not be allowed.
Chapter 12.Company Transfers
If a member wishes to change to another Company he needs to put a request
in writing through his/her Company SGM. It will then be processed to the Battalion
XO for approval. This will be dependent on the needs of the Battalion.
Chapter 13.Double Tagging
If the CAP community is supporting a game, being part of CAP and another
clan playing that same game is unauthorized. Exception to policy on this is of
course if CAP does not support a game then you are authorized to join another clan
to enjoy team based gameplay. If a person is found to be in violation of this rule
the member will be asked to make a decision regarding which team he will be
playing with. If the member refuses to make a decision with a timely period the
Disciplinary Board will be convened to decide the course of action.
This is the second version of the SOP. As problems arise there will be revisions to
the SOP so it continues to meet the Battalions standards. If you're unsure that a
certain behavior may be inappropriate and it is not covered in the SOP the best
advice that can be given is to hold your actions and discuss it with your NCO so they
can bring it up to the Officers for a possible revision to the SOP.
