We are a mixed age clan, with members from grade school to retirement. In many cases, we have multiple generations of the same real world families as members. The basic rule is civilized behavior. Yes, these are largely first person shooter games we play, and yes, we kill each other, virtually. But we do strive for the honorable death.
We strive for a high order of "newbie tolerance". After all, we were all newbies once. That doesn't mean we excuse complete lack of effort on the part of folks to learn what is going on.
We encourage exploration into the more creative and exploratory aspects of game playing, such as map creation, model and skin creation, server administration, etc. But none of this is required. If you decide to pursue it, great! Chances are you can find someone in the clan to guide you if you want help.
We encourage skilled play, but don't require it. No player was ever denied access to WOS game servers or to WOS membership because they couldn't frag their way out of a paper bag.
