This page lists the rules of the clan for members. This is what we expect from our members if you want to join.
  • Fun is what we are all here to have whilst playing games.
  • We should all aim to get along with each other.
  • From time to time things may not go as you want, please refrain from over expressing yourself.
  • Baiting or upsetting other members will not be tolerated.
  • Respect is the key foundation of this clan.
  • Respect must be shown to fellow members, the general public, other clans and communities.
  • Members must follow all given rules at all times this includes not abusing any membership perks or admin privileges.
  • Abuse will not be tolerated in any form as it has no place in [RIP].
  • Although swearing will be heard in our voice comms, we do not need to see it written anywhere.
  • Do not use any crass or socially unacceptable language or pictures.
  • We will take cheating as the most serious of all charges.
  • Any member that has an active ban from BE, VAC, PB etc. will be removed from the clan.
  • Any member caught cheating will be banned and reported to all relevant parties.
  • Using any in-game glitches to your advantage will be classed as cheating. So if you know them, don't use them and report them to the game devs.
  • If you suspect any player of cheating:
    • Inform a Senior Admin.
    • They will then determine the outcome.
    • Do not attempt to engage in a slagging contest with the player via in-game messages or voice comms.
  • Remember that in order for our servers to be filled, we need the participation of public players, so fair play is important on our part.
  • Our rules also apply to members who play on other Clan servers, if we are provided with proof of an offence committed on another server we will serve you with a permanent ban.
  • When you are playing on a [RIP] server, [RIP] members must be on our voice program. Not being on our voice program will get you kicked from the game server by the Admin.
  • You should ideally be in the channel for the server that you are playing on, with a few exceptions:
    • Other channels should only be used for specific things like training and even then it should be a sub-channel under the correct server channel.
    • There may be other cases when you are playing, but cannot make noise at home, a broken microphone and either a message after your name or use of the AFK channel will be accepted.
    • Being in the Bar if you want to chat (or create a sub-channel).
  • Meeting channels should not be used whilst gaming.
  • We are a mature Clan and expect our members to act accordingly, thus swearing is permitted. However, remember to respect the other members in the same channel and do not overindulge in these activities. Refer to the rules on fun.
  • Push to Talk is enforced.
  • Keep yourself up to date with the forums, as all clan information will be posted there.
  • To aid with above rule, all members must visit the forums at least once a month, this is to ensure that you are still with us.
  • Members who have not visited the forums in a 30-day period will be placed in the MIA section of the roster and will lose their member forum and voice program rights. A further 30-day period and they will be removed from the Clan. This is to ensure that we have an up to date Roster and genuine number of Clan members.
  • It is a requirement to have your username/display name on all our official channels to be the same, this includes our forums, roster, TS3 & Discord. It also extends to the name you use on our servers, so can include your Steam name.
  • This is to make admin of our users correct and when possible automated.
  • PLEASE NOTE: Due to script restrictions with our SQL databases, we will not allow any non-standardised English alphabet characters in your username, this includes special characters and accents above letters. Numeric numbers 0 > 9 will be accepted. We are sorry about this but we are limited to the available regional settings of the database.
  • Donations to [RIP] are completely voluntary.
  • Donations are only used to cover the costs of running our website and servers.
  • To encourage donations whenever possible 'perks' are offered to members who donate (see reserved slots).
  • Whilst playing on the [RIP] servers, all members must wear their tags. If you don't wear them, do not complain when you are kicked.
  • We expect each member to be proud to wear the [RIP] tags and associate themselves with us, thus whilst playing on other servers we would like to see you wear them, although this is not compulsory.
  • If you are seen using tags other than [RIP] tags, you will be deemed as having left the clan and be removed.
  • As [RIP] is a multi-gaming clan, you cannot be part of another group/organisation/clan (community) for any of our primary games platoons/companies.
  • If you are seen wearing another clan tag, you will be removed from the clan.
  • This does not mean that you cannot play with them, it just means that you cannot be a part of the two communities to prevent any conflict of interest.
  • We expect all [RIP] members to play fair and in a good manner at all times.
  • Each game we host will have its own specific game rules (So make sure you are up to date with them). What applies to the public players also applies to [RIP] members, with no exceptions, although we may have some additional rules for members.
  • Members must not use the in-game message tool to abuse others, vent their frustration or accuse anyone of cheating (see rules on cheating). This behaviour will result in a ban.
  • If a server is full and you would like to join that game, ask an Admin and they will try to create a slot for you when they have time. For games with reserved slots if you donate, this will not be required.
  • All [RIP] members must follow the server rules.
  • Any [RIP] members found to be breaking the server rules will be dealt with accordingly.
  • Our server rules can be found here
  • All full [RIP] members will have access to the Server Admin forums and thus will have admin rights on all [RIP] servers. This excludes recruits until they have passed their recruitment period.
  • Dependant on server/game, admin rights may be split into different categories. [RIP] members of a rank between PVT and CPL will have basic admin rights while members ranked SGT and above will have senior admin rights.
  • Command Staff have access to the server control panel in order to start/stop/update the game servers.
  • Command Staff have access to the server banned player lists.
  • Dependant on server, reserved slots (or auto-join) will be made available to any member who has donated funds greater than £1 GBP in the past 3 months.

  • Any problems that do come along, of which there will be a few,  firstly try and resolve the issue on a one to one basis.
  • Don’t post on forums in the first instance.
  • If this is unsuccessful, speak to the next person in the chain of command.
  • If the issue is with your next level in the chain of command, go to the next level.
  • If you are going to be away on holiday or an extended work deployment for more than 2 weeks, please inform your Senior Officer and post in the 'Notice for Holiday' forum (ensure that you use the correct posting format). If this is for more than 1 month, they will then place you in the Away on Leave section of this roster and will prevent you from being placed in the MIA section.
  • If you do find yourself in the MIA section (normally after forgetting to inform someone), please contact your Senior Officer and they will assist you in gaining your access back.
  • If you have decided the time to leave [RIP] has come for whatever reason then all we can say is, have fun and good luck wherever you may end up and we will be sorry to see you leave. All we ask is that you let us know you are leaving and that you leave amicably.
  • Remember to post your resignation in the 'Leaving RIP' forum section so that all know you have left so any admin and other rights can be removed.
  • Things not to do when leaving:
    • Post anything defamatory as all it will do is be removed and your account will be deactivated without hesitation.
    • Don't abuse your admin on the servers by banning people or trying to break the servers.
    • Try to recruit members into a new/different clan.
  • Breaking any of the above rules will automatically end up with you being permanently banned from the forums, servers and TS. If you leave amicably and you let us know that you are creating a new clan then we will temporary ban you for 30 days just to protect ourselves from similar issues that we have had in the past with sour members leaving. We would prefer to have everyone leave amicably and not end up with bad blood.
  • If you have decided to rejoin [RIP] then if you left on good terms it is a simple process of posting in the 'Information About RIP' forum section and one of the CS will set you back up.
  • The clan rules may change as time goes on.
  • [RIP] members will have access to our 'Standing Orders' forum section, where any rule amendments and/or clarifications on any rules will be posted.
  • It is the responsibility of [RIP] members to keep themselves up to date with rules.
