Member Rules

Since the {XG} Clan is quite large, we feel it is necessary to set out a clear set of rules and guidelines for how we expect our members to conduct themselves, what is expected of them, and how they will benefit as a member. This might sound simple and/or obvious, but these are important things to remember as a member of this clan!

 Being a Member

When you're in-game, it is expected that you are working toward the goal the team is trying to accomplish, not just trying to get the most kills (excluding slayer). There are many people who play online games who believe they are awesomesauce. Some of them are genuinely good at playing Halo, however we are not in the clan to elevate any specific individuals to a higher level than the clan as a whole. 

 Treat Others With Respect, Integrity, Honesty And Friendship


An important element as a member of this Clan is respect. If you don't respect your fellow clan mate, then how can you expect others to respect you? This goes for the people we play with as much as your fellow clan mates. Online gaming attracts trash talking and animosity, but we should always try to rise above it and continue to treat fellow players and opponents with respect. Remember that you are representing the clan as a whole whenever you play in public wearing the clan tags. Even if you are playing under a pseudonym, poor behavior has a habit of coming back to haunt you. Getting kicked or banned under a pseudonym can still have repercussions. 


We expect honesty and integrity in our membership. It is very important that everyone within the clan can share their honest opinion with each other in a respectful constructive way. Honesty is important for the friendships we have within the clan, so if you don't feel you can be honest with us then this clan is not for you. Gaming online provides a sense of anonymity, however words are powerful and feelings can be injured easily. Be mindful of your tone so as not to offend anyone, including guests who visit our servers. Do not think that there will not be consequences for one's actions in-game.

 Clan Rules


Attitude: All members must demonstrate a good attitude and friendly personality, since by joining the {XG} Clan they will become our representative in the games they play and their conduct and behaviour will be under close scrutiny. If a member acts in an inappropriate manner, or breaks clan rules, then that member will be removed from the clan.

    • Multi-clanning: All members are expected to be solely committed to the {XG} Clan as their Halo clan, and should not play for any other Halo PC/CE clans. Your enrolment in any additional Halo clans shows you are not dedicated to the {XG} Clan and you will be asked to decide if you wish to leave the other Halo clan or leave {XG} Clan.(Community’s / guilds like Realworld are allowed).
    • You need to have at least 10 friends on Xfire. (This is only required because we need to know that you will be an active member.)
    • You must not be banned on any of the {XG} Servers.
    • You need to speak English.
    • You need to have Halo (Halo Custom Edition, which is free for owners of Halo Combat Evolved) or Battlefield 3.
    • Admin’s have final say on whether someone can join the clan or not.
    • Pick and use one (1) name to avoid confusion (includes in game, Xfire, Teamspeak, Forums etc.).


  • In order for this clan to work properly, communication is vital. Just as we expect people to be honest, we feel it is important that our members are able to express their feelings and thoughts to each other. All our members communicate regularly through a program called Xfire and on our Clan Forums. You need to have Xfire installed, and be registered on the forums so that you can communicate with us. We expect you to check our clan forum regularly for news, announcements, events and general updates.
  • When playing in clan servers or clan sponsored games, it is expected that you will use your appropriate clan tag. On occasion, you notice a Leader or Administrator not wearing their tags. In these cases, these individuals may be involved in recruitment or investigating other issues.
  • Don’t spam or flood the forums, in game chats, teamspeak,xfire,etc
  • Don’t ask for admin rights, we will give them to people who we deem worthy.
  • Don't advertise / recruit (Except for the {XG} clan and Elite Game Servers of course ;) )
  • Always be mature. Annoying behaviour may mean you will be kicked from the clan.
  • If an admin gives you rights to passwords etc. (on Teamspeak), it is strictly forbidden to give others this password.


Teamwork, Fair Play and Clan Activity

  • As a member of the {XG} Clan you are at all times an ambassador for the clan. This means that your behaviour must at all times reflect the values of the clan. This goes beyond your attitude and friendliness towards other clan members and members of the public and extends to how you play on clan servers.
  • As a clan we are more interested in playing games to enjoy them and work as a team than for anybody's individual personal glory. This means that we expect members to play for the team regardless of if they are playing in a clan match or on a public server. So long as you are representing the clan, you should always carry our values with you.
  • As a member of the {XG} clan you need to follow our server rules and prevent other players from breaking these rules (for example by giving warnings and reporting the rule breaker to an admin)
  • Cheating is something that we as a clan will not tolerate. If it is discovered that you are using any aimbots or hacks or other types of cheats you will be banned from our servers and expelled from the clan immediately without exception
  • Activity: To be considered active you must visit the forums regularly and contribute in posting, be active in Halo, and on Xfire. Should you be Inactive for a period of 1 month or more, you can be removed from the clan (unless prior notification of absence was made).

 Discipline and Leaving the Clan

  • Although the clan is and always will remain a group of friends and a social gathering, it cannot exist without the rules discussed above. As such, it must be remembered that breaking these rules will not be without consequences.
  • The following offences are considered gross misconduct and will be punished by immediate dismissal from the clan:
    • Use of aimbots, cheats, hacks or glitching or any code which is considered illegal in professional gaming circles.
    • Failure to take part in clan activities for 1 month without first announcing their intention to take a break.
    • Posting or reproducing internal clan information to individuals or other websites outside the clan without express permission or arrangement.
    • Repeated severe bad behaviour in contravention of the rules stated above concerning teamwork, fair play and mutual respect.


  • Being a member of the {XG} Clan is more than wearing the tag of an elite group of gamers. {XG} is a Clan where people can meet, share, grow, experience, and appreciate life from different perspectives as we reach into many global communities. Take the time to live and learn and enjoy a game that is just fun to play!
  • By applying to join the clan it is assumed you have read, understood and agreed to the rules in this charter.
  • Ignorance never excuses poor behavior.
  • Happy Gaming :)
