All applicants must install and use anti-cheat programs as directed by admins.
All applicants must download and install TeamSpeak 3 and use it to communicate when playing with -=BoW=- members.
PLEASE NOTE: Swearing is a right, not a privilege, we use any language we want, whenever we want, however we want. If vulgar language offends .........this ain't the place for you.
-=BoW=- Gaming Policy
1. Respect all members, and other players, on the servers and on Teamspeak (TS).
2. Do not bait, insult, flame, or otherwise abuse a member or other players on the servers, especially in in-game chat. If non-members are being disrespectful, breaking the rules (see server rules), offensive etc, a polite warning should be given, then on a second offence they should be kicked by Rcon admin.
3. When wearing your tags (-=BoW=- + name) you are identified as a clan member, please show respect to other players and members on our servers but also when playing on other servers or in scrims. We want to be respected as a fun and fair clan.
4. Usernames and playercards should not be offensive.
5. Players should be on TS when IN GAME, in the right channel and wear their tags where appropriate. You ideally should be on even if no-one else is on, so that when other members join they can see you.
6. Programs, files, patches, glitches, modifications or cheats that allow a player to gain an unfair advantage over others in the game (hacks) are not permitted, other than those allowed under CG rules. -=BoW=- does not cheat.
7. You are expected to remain fairly active on the servers and in the forum. Please post on the forums if you are going to be away for 2 weeks or longer (work/holidays/sick etc). Otherwise you may be removed as a member. You are also required to check the website forums regularly as this is where most of the communication happens regarding matches etc. Check it at least once a week / fortnight in some circumstances.
8. Posts intended to anger individuals, or posts that are negative or incendiary, are not permitted.
9. Recruiting for another clan is not permitted.
10. Impersonating any other person in an effort to deceive or mislead is not permitted.
11. Posts on the forum should not discriminate or promote hate or violence against individuals because of their origin, skin colour, culture, religious beliefs or creed.
12. Pornography, sexually offensive or obscene materials must not be posted.
13. Privacy - posting any form of real life information of a user (unless the user has first permitted it by express consent) is not permitted, eg name, address, email address and phone number. Real life information must not be used with intent to harass or in any demeaning manner, regardless of consent.
14. Bans - you can appeal your ban directly on the forum in the correct section.
15. Spamming is only permitted in designated spam areas.
16. Members must be 14 years or older, have a working microphone and TS3 installed.
17. You may not join any other clan whilst registered with BoW unless given express permission by Acechamp9878. In other words - if you're in -=BoW=-, your in -=BoW=-.

appropriate to wear recruit tags in game (-=rBoW=-Gamertag).
(Note: If the player is invited to wear recruit tags, that does not imply full clan membership. It implies they are a recruit and that the voting process can then begin.)
