III. Discrimination of any type will NOT be tolerated at all! This includes inside of lobbies, chat forums, or any game of any type. Please represent DHG to the fullest and in a positive manner. Do not fall victim to another user egging you on. Simply, mute the player or leave the game and/or lobby. Report the player to a higher up if they are a DHG member. If it is a public person, have your entire party leave that game. What you do and how you act, are both reflections on how DHG is perceived.
IV. ALL MEMBERS MUST BE AGE 16 OR OLDER. NO EXCEPTIONS in DHG. However, we do have DHJ (Die Hard Juniors) for 9-15 years of age players. NOTE: Although, DHJ is a separate entity, DHG & DHJ player ranks are still equatable and we must adhere to the C.o.C.. For example, a DHJ GENERAL is still above a DHG COMMANDER, but is the same rank as a DHG GENERAL.
V. All members are accountable for themselves and their actions. Leaders within DHG are NOT responsible for members who break rules. DHG has a zero-tolerance policy. Violating members will be judged by the Vice Presidents ranks on up to DHG Management.

VII. All members in DHG have an open door policy to speak with any member on any issue that one may have. NOTE: If you have an issue, it is suggested you start by using the chain of command to voice your issues in a private setting. If you feel that is not working, then, by all means, address the issue to any higher up/s in rank in a private setting. When an issue is received by any DHG member, they will report any & all issues to a higher up that can help resolve the issue within a timely manner.

XI. Members should attend at least one meeting per week and at least two practices a week. Doing so will help us to be organized and help us gain the necessary skills to dominate when in action.
XII. If you are called to a party by a higher ranking member please respond to that person ASAP. (Note: Even if you don't like that person or have had problems with that person in the past you must answer their call no matter what). Also, please show respect to your clan elders!
XIII. When and if you have a problem or idea, please use the chain of command when you need to express these things. You should never go over your superiors head no matter what the situation is.
