Clan Rule 0: The Most Important Rule: Be Loyal. Loyalty means that you stay with us once you have decided to join TQA. Loyalty also means that you respect the leaders of the clan (Founder, Leader, Co-Leader, Queen, Head General) and their decisions. When you are TQA, you are part of a family, so do not be an outsider. You better think very hard, and you better be very sure, before you make the mistake to leave TQA. We will not simply let you rejoin when you quit for no good reason. Loyalty will be rewarded. Enjoy your stay with us. We appreciate every loyal member. Have fun!
Clan Rule 1: We under no circumstances attack other clans, or members of our own clan out of “anger”, or because someone outside TQA asked you too. The only way someone should EVER do this, is with permission from one of the leaders of the clan (Founder, Leader, Co-Leader, Queen, Head General). Breaking this rule is bad for your reputation, and the reputation of the clan itself.
Clan Rule 2: In fighting, we are honorable. We don’t interfere with 1 on 1 fights, and we don’t run away from them. It’s fight until you win, or until you die. There is no shame in losing. When fighting in a raid, don’t give up, and don’t give in. TQA doesn’t retreat, which is why we remain undefeated to this day.
Clan Rule 3:The ONLY people allowed to give orders to other TQA members are the leaders of the clan (Founder, Leader, Co-Leader, Queen, Head General) and the sheriffs. Nobody else is permitted to “Rank” (promote) or “De-Rank” (demote) anyone, or tell people what they should or shouldn’t do. If there is an issue, talk to us, and we will take care of it. Sheriffs can (only) promote scouts to troopers, not higher.
Clan Rule 4: RANKS! DO NOT ASK FOR RANK! You do not earn ranks by begging for a promotion, or just by being a good fighter. This is how most clans work, but not ours. You earn ranks by putting time into the clan, so how often you show up, and by supporting and helping to improve the clan. Recruiting is a plus, as well as being a positive role model to other members, and treating everyone with respect. Put your fighting skills to use in raids, help out the clan and it’s allies and you will be recognized for your efforts.
Clan Rule 5:This goes along with rule #1. If you are angry at one of the leaders’ (Founder, Leader, Co-Leader, Queen, Head General) or sheriff’s choices, or just angry at the leader or sheriff in general, don’t lash out at us, attack us, or be rude about the situation. Just take one of us aside, calmly let us know what the issue is, and we will try to fix the problem.
Clan Rule 6: NO double clanning. When you are in TQA you are in TQA only and not in another clan as well. Using another name, another account, to be in another clan as well counts as breaking the rule. We consider “team”, “group”, “guild”, or whatever you call it, to be the same as a clan. You do not become a member of something else in the game besides TQA.
Clan Rule 7: Our official clan language is English. Because we are a clan with members from all over the world we speak English in our base so that every TQA member can understand it.
Clan Rule 8: NO BETS: Never agree to fight someone when it means that if you lose you will have to join another clan. Even when it means your opponent will join TQA when you win. We do not want you to risk your clan membership, and we do not need members who join us only because they lost a bet and not not because they really wanted to join. If you want to be TQA then never agree to bets that mean you could lose your clan membership.
Clan Rule 9: No joining/making Groups allowed: Do not join another Group, neither making one when you are a TQA member.
The raid rules: PLEASE READ THIS VERY CAREFULLY!
Raid Rule 1: No trash talking. Do not trash talk, do not insult the opponent. Typing also takes time you could use for fighting, so try not to waste your time on responding to people who only want to insult you. Do not lower yourself to their level.
Raid Rule 2: Team work. Work together, stay together, help each other, save each other. We fight along side each other.
Raid Rule 3: Do not run. Do not run away like a coward to heal, especially not when only one opponent is attacking you. Do not be afraid to get killed, but do not let yourself be killed too easily either by multiple opponents. You are allowed to run to the next opponent to fight, and you can run to go help a friend. That is not the same as running like a coward. You know when you are being a coward and when not. Pay no attention to people calling you a runner when you are not being a coward. Be brave.
Raid Rule 4: No pets in a raid. Pets, most of them, are very distracting and prevent people from seeing what they are doing. So do not use your pets in a raid.
Raid Rule 5: Do not fight alone. Do not run away from your clan members to go after a single enemy or to fight them all on your own. It may be tempting but it will be used against you by the enemy. Often the enemy who is running will lure you away from your clan mates who need your help, and he will lead you to his own friends so they can then team up on you and kill you easily.
Raid Rule 6: No pvp in a raid. Do not agree to an invite to do a 1 vs 1 fight (at the pillars or wherever) when a raid is going on. Even when the person asking you seems nice and wants to play fair, others may not be so fair and attack you while you do the 1 vs 1 anyway. But most important, while you do the nice 1 vs 1 you have left the raid actually and are not helping your team mates win the battle. In a raid it is not about personal duels but about the battle, which involves your whole clan, so not only you.
Raid Rule 7: Rejoin your group. Keep looking around you. It is not running to heal when you run to go help a friend in need. Keep rejoining your group. There is more strength in numbers. When you find yourself fighting alone or getting too far from the other clan members, you stop fighting where you are and rejoin the group. Do not care if the enemy calls that running, you are not being a coward, you are just being smart and a good team player when you keep rejoining the group and stay with them.
Raid Rule 8: PAY ATTENTION TO ORDERS. Pay attention when the leaders (Founder, Leader, Co-Leader, Queen, Head General) says things, often in capitals so you can see them. Follow orders. Also pay attention to sheriffs, they will assist the leaders in raids and sheriffs will lead the defense of base when there are no leaders around.
Raid Rule 9: BTB = Back to base, that means: leave now. Back to base means leave immediately for base. The leader may stick around to make sure everybody has left, but you do not stick around to wait for the leader to leave. When you stick around it means the leader can not leave and you put yourself and your leader in danger by staying when it is just you both still there. So LEAVE when you have been told BTB, BACK TO BASE. Do not stay to finish the fight you are in, just GO.
Raid Rule 10: Watch out for fakes. People may try to lure you to go fight in a raid, or may try to trick you to leave the raid. Only your real leaders (Founder, Leader, Co-Leader, Queen, Head General) decide when to raid and when to leave the raid and go back to base.
