This page outlines the criteria required to attain each rank within the DeadlyGaming community. Furthermore, it provides a definition of each rank along with the responsibilities required of the person who holds said rank. Although the amount of time a member has been a part of DeadlyGaming is a major consideration, it does not by itself guarantee progression within our ranking system. As it is described below, our officers are assigned the task of determining who deserves to move up in rank and who does not.Major Considerations:
Being On TeamSpeak:
On the forum:
Other than our forums, Teamspeak is our favorite place to relax and enjoy each other’s company while playing video games. If you are online or in game, and especially if you are in one of our game servers, it is encouraged that you be on Teamspeak as well. Teamspeak attendance and participation is essential to proving yourself worthy of more responsibility with the community.
Our forums represent the core of our community. It is a place that we all can share and enjoy each others ideas and stories.

Members that prove particularly useful in certain areas are treasured, and will be rewarded. Examples include, but certainly are not limited to: Programming, Art (for the site or in signatures for other members), and Videos/Montages.Rankup Guidelines:

Attaining the rank of Officer is the highest honor a DeadlyGaming member can achieve. From 2nd Lieutenants to Generals, the officer’s of DeadlyGaming are comprised of our most trusted and valued members. Officers have access to more areas of the forum, are granted the ability to move Guests in TeamSpeak, and are given many responsibilities within the clan. Officers are required to have and be able to use a microphone in TeamSpeak. The DeadlyGaming leadership is responsible for officer promotions - there are no time or participation requirements, you must go above and beyond to advance from this point foward.
Here is a list of officer positions along with their responsibilities. Bear in mind that this list should never be used as an excuse to not take on additional responsibility. We fully expect all of our officers to overcome each challenge that we encounter as a team.
2nd Lieutenant |2LT
2nd Lieutenant’s represent DeadlyGaming’s next generation of leadership. As a 2nd Lieutenant you are responsible for actively seeking out all members who are inactive in your platoon and reporting their inactivity to your CO. If during this process you have the opportunity to encourage inactive members to become active once again it is your duty to take advantage of said opportunity.
1st Lieutenant |1LT
In addition to the responsibilities of a 2nd Lieutenant, as a 1st Lieutenant you will be counted on to complete one or both of the following tasks each month; find 1 new recruit and or assist one member in achieving a higher rank.
Captains are responsible for ensuring that our Lieutenants are equipped to successfully complete the tasks outlined above. Each Captain should pay extra special attention to his or her platoon in this regard. Captains are subject to demotion if they do not keep a sharp eye on their Lieutenants. Captains are awarded Teamspeak admin.
Majors have two specific roles. First Majors are responsible for monitoring the moderation of the forums. In short, they report any moderators that are not closing topics, pinning topics, locking topics, etc to the Leadership. Secondly, Majors are responsible for teaching new 2nd Lieutenants how to do their job.
Building on the responsibilities outline in the Major rank, Colonels are also responsible for making sure that all the competitive squads in DeadlyGaming are healthy and active. If you discover that they are not, you must assist in revitalizing said squad. If the squad is beyond saving, you must report your findings to the Leadership for review. Lastly, if you want to become one of the leaders of DeadlyGaming, this is the time to prove it - the Leaders are watching.
