The Seraphim Code of Honor is the heart of who we are… it is the DNA of our unit. Every time we reach out to new recruits, train new leaders, and form new lances within our unit, it is with the idea of strengthening and expanding the Code of honor to others.
We place this first because this Code will either make or break a recruit or member in our unit. Refusal to accept and carry out this Code bars entry into our ranks. Violating this code while being employed by The Seraphim will result in slower promotions, reductions in rank, and eventually, dishonorable discharge from the unit.
Yes, we take the Seraphim Code of Honor THAT seriously … and we ask that all prospective members do as well. So what is the code?
It does not matter the time or place, profanity and off-color remarks have no place here among us. We do not allow it. We run a private TeamSpeak server just so we can avoid it. Most of us have to endure endless hours of profanity in the workplace every day. The Seraphim was designed to give ourselves a quiet, comfortable place to game the way we choose to game …. in peace and brotherhood.
Taunting/Trolling Other Players
We do not allow voice or text taunting or trolling of other players in game or out. We do not condone such childish behavior. Prospective members who like to engage in making taunts and throwing jabs at the other team, verbally or through text chat, need not apply. Any member caught doing this will be called out verbally on the spot (public reprimand in game channel).
Divisive Discussion and Attitudes
There is nothing wrong with an honest discussion that brings up opposing ideas. We tend to avoid political discussions. The leadership of the Seraphim notice members who bring up arguments and introduce discord into the unit. Members who violate this principle will be counseled privately and given a chance to mend their ways.
Selfish / Self-Centered Spirits
Our core belief is that everyone in the unit is more important than I (self) am. With that being the case, it is very easy to spot someone who is struggling in this area. Most times, Seraphim members will drop into each TeamSpeak channel to greet fellow members and to tell them goodbye. It is part of what defines who we are.
There are no "star" players in our unit, nor those who play or talk like one. No one seeks to elevate themselves above the others. It is OK to say the occasional "Did you see what I just did?” but, if it is said after every match, it gets more than a little annoying.
