A Quality International Gaming Community – http://evcitadel.com
Eternal Vigilance is not merely a ‘clan’ – we like to call ourselves a multi-gaming guild, and this is a source of great pride to us. We have crafted a chain of command that is conducive to such an environment; constantly adapting to the interests of the members so that your membership with Eternal Vigilance lasts longer than your interest in a single game. When you join Eternal Vigilance, you are making a decision that will likely benefit you for years to come.
The guild itself, is bound by a Charter that employs a democratic process to elect both its leaders as well as changes to the charter, and our basic premise for gaming structure is to divide the games we play into different, autonomous divisions, which we call “Portals” for each game we are organized in.
Within the guild, we have two levels of membership – Core and Portal. Core membership is for those interested in the Multi-Gaming aspect of EV and being a part of the entire community, whereas portal membership is for those only interested in a specific (gaming) portal within EV – there is no difference between the two within a given Portal, so everyone is on equal footing.
We are a group of mature and seasoned gamers who love to have fun while striving to be the best we can be in the games we play.
Our mission within the Star Citizen Universe can summed up in a single sentence. “Strive to be the best we can be in every facet of the game.” We are of the mindset that with a true sandbox there should be nothing hindering our members from doing everything and anything that the game allows for, that does not adversely affect the Organization as a whole of course. We want to take on challenges and achieve goals that can only be accomplished effectively by an organized group of players actively contributing towards shared objectives. We also want to empower our members to achieve their own objectives in the game with the help of the Organization and its resources.
In order to help facilitate our mission, we are accepting all play styles and roles into our Organization — from PvE to PvP, Soldiers and Privateers, Merchants, Smugglers, Explorers and Industrialists, and anything (Minus Pirates) else that will be allowed for in-game, and we’re working towards an in-game organizational structure that will help us achieve our goals while enjoying the game to the fullest!
That is of course, an extremely broad overview that leaves a lot open to interpretation for what we wish to do in-game. This is on purpose for a few reasons, the main reason though is that those of us in EV plan on playing this game for a very long time. We don’t want to handicap our ability to try different elements of the game as an Organization by committing ourselves to ventures that will keep us held down. An example of such a venture would be securing a sector of space to use as a permanent base of operations. Such an endeavor is undoubtedly tantalizing to think about undertaking. However when you factor in all of what will be required to protect and maintain it, IE. patrolling against attack and consistently rushing to help defend it on a moments notice, it loses it’s appeal. Although we have no plans to pursue such ventures at this time, that certainly does not mean we will not do so at some point in the future of the game.
This document contains the details of the inner workings of Eternal Vigilance’s Star Citizen Portal. Everyone who joins the Star Citizen Portal is bound by this charter, and must adhere to it whenever representing the Portal and Eternal Vigilance as a member. The Portal Commander reserves the right to alter this document when deemed necessary.
Code of Conduct:
Taken from the Eternal Vigilance Guild Charter
This includes membership in multiple organizations within the forum and in-game “Organizations” mechanic that will be available to the players of Star Citizen. Once this mechanic becomes available and its features and functionality understood, more information will be given to all portal members regarding policies and restrictions within the system.
At this time it is highly likely that membership to Organizations that do not present a conflict of interest with Eternal Vigilance, will be allowed. Examples of such an Organization would those that are social in nature, that do not put demands on their members. However more information on the game mechanics will be needed before a final decision is made
The following are activity standards for the portal.
A. Active Members
The Commander may, depending on the circumstances and the timeframe of the inactivity, do one of the following…
B. Standby Members
The following is the structure of the Portal in its entirety (currently only defines the pre-release structure).
A. Chain of Command:
Teams are organized groups of members actively participating in the betterment of the portal.
C. Team Requirements:
D. Effort levels:
Effort levels are positions with associated tasks and responsibilities a member has declared as their contribution to a Team.
During pre-release only, we will be using a credit system to track activity of our membership. This system is designed to benefit those who’ve actively contributed to the Portal during pre-release when we switch over to our release structure as the Star Citizen Universe goes live.
Star Citizen Portal members who fail to adhere to this charter, in its entirety, may be subject to the temporary or permanent suspension of their membership.
Determined by a your effort level and time committed to the guild, and are an overall representation of your accomplishments within the Portal. The specifics are undetermined at this time, but rank will come with privileges after release. Please use the above diagram for reference to the the following.
Note – Members should post a new request in the “Signature Request Thread” upon promotion in order to receive an updated forum signature/badge reflecting their new rank.
Notice: While contributing to the Portal/Organization during pre-release is not required to maintain active membership, it will be once we switch to our structure for release. Rest assured you will be able to choose where you contribute and how much you do so, very similar to how you would if you joined one of the pre-release teams. Eternal Vigilance is very much a cohesive unit and to maintain this we must all contribute, big or small, to be successful in the Persistent Universe.
