Rules & Recruitment

1) Code of Conduct

  • Have fun.
    • The first and foremost rule is to always have fun. We are in essence still playing a game and while we take it very serious, always remember that this is a game.
  • Aggression is NOT allowed.
    • In the heath of the moment, adrenaline can kick in. This can cause normally rational people to go berserk. Mental and physical abuse are NOT allowed. This is both bad for you as a player and makes our team look bad. Don’t do it.
  • Play like a team.
    • During Milsim games and otherwise, winning or losing depends on us playing together as a team. Because of this, we ask everyone to do their part. We are not a band of lone wolves.
    • If officers give you a goal or task to perform, we ask that you try to full-fill this to the best of your abilities.
    • That being said, we also understand that sniper teams operate best when they are detached from the main assault squad(s).
  • Stick to the field rules.
    • Every airsoft field has a set of rules, you are expected not to break these rules. We have good relations with some major airsoft organisations (E.g. Crimi Events) and would like to keep it that way.
  • Respect the other team.
    • Yes, team blue is composed of a bunch of losers, I know. But we all started playing airsoft without knowledge and gear. You are expected to be respectful of other players.

2) Recruitment & Evaluation Policy
