Official Game Creation and Holdings Rules

Official Game Creation and Holding Rules

 

In order to have a game become official and its guild members, members of Pegasus Command it must follow one of these tracks:

 

7-GCR-01.  When Started by any Pegasus Command Citizen: 

When they have 10 players not counting themselves, who are also not Pegasus Command members, they may ask to be officially part of Pegasus Command. When these requirements are met the member must contact the Supreme Commander to get approval from the Quorum.

7-GCR-02. Guild names:

Game unit names must have Pegasus Command in the guild title, (Pegasus Command_Game Name, Etc...).  No member shall name it after themselves or any other person real or fictional. So, Pegasus Command Aer would be wrong, while Pegasus Command Eve would be fine. Peg Com must always come first in the name. 

7-GCR-03.  When Started by the Supreme Commander:

1. The SC has the power to send players to a game to "check" out and report on. If done this way there is no min requirement of members for coming before the Quorum to get official status.

2. When a game is added through this office, we are looking at its overall impact on the guild.  A Supreme Commander will add a game of two types.  One, an expansion game, this game will be a game meant to add to the current membership and offerings of the guild.  While the second, is a replacement game, which will replace a lost Official Game.  These two types of adds have different constituencies and different processes as to what kind of game we are looking for.  

A. Rules for any game add: 

1. The game must have at least minimum guild functions, a roster and some type of in game chat must be present.

2. The game must be PC playable.

3. The game must be an online multiplayer.     

4. At least one new Expansion game should be added each year.

5. All new expansion games and some replacement games will start under a Military Governorship, which means the Supreme Commander will be directly in charge of day to day activities.

6. In looking at any game the cost of the game should be taken into account.

It should be a primary concern of the Supreme Commander (SC) to move such a game into regular order as soon as possible and appoint a Game Commander.

B. Rules for Expansion Game Adds:

I.   An expansion game will add to the number of official games for our guild.  

II.  It will be used to grow the community and should not have a negative impact on any current official guild games membership.

III. While not binding, the entire guild must be allowed to name games they would like reviewed by the SC. This will be done on the guild website. The SC will also announce their findings on each game so listed and as to if they will propose the game or not and list reasons for doing so.

C.   For game reviews the SC will at a minimum do the following:

I.    Read one or more game reviews by an independent game review outlet such as PC Gamer.

II.   Review the games Wikipedia article. Watch one or more gameplay videos for the game.

III.  If the game is to be proposed, play the game for a minimum of 30 mins while steaming on the Guild Twitch Channel. This is to be posted with its review, and on the guild discord.

IV.   Look over for cheating issues with the game.

V.    Check how healthy the game’s population is as far back as possible.

VI.   Review the games official forums for new posts and guild advertisements.

VII.  Review number of hits the video gets on our twitch page.

VIII. Look at how many people are streaming the game.

VIV.  See how easy it would be to recruit in the game.

3. In general, games that overlap with other Official Guild Games should not be proposed. The idea for expansion games is to add new types of games and grow our membership. Games that add no new type of game play or may reduce another games community should be avoided.

4. In general, four or more games should be proposed and the avoidance of an only up or down vote of approval at the Quroum should be avoided. This gives more choice and will likely result in a better add than if the SC only provides one option.

5. Rules for Replacement Games:

       1. A replacement game is to find a new home game for an existing game community in the guild.  This may be necessary due to the shut down of a game or inability to play it for other reasons.    It will replace that game and will not be expected to add new members at any large rate.

       2. The existing game community for which the game is intended to replace should be involved in proposing games to be reviewed.This is also non-binding but should take place on the website and be linked on discord.

       3. The review process for such a game should follow the same as for expansion games. 

6.  In house guild game: If a game is on a server, we fully control this game will be considered an in-house guild game add. Due to the special nature of such game specific rules need to be put in place for their addition.

     a.Any in-house game will have the Pegasus Command Private Server rules applied to it.

     b.When such a game is added it will not be for replacement or for expansion of the guild.

     c. Such a game will be expected to enhance the value of membership in Pegasus Command and have the ability to serve             as a community in game hub for special events of all the membership.

     d. The game will be promoted as a membership perk and be a center of multigame experience for the guild. It will strive to           be a melting pot.

     e. Such games do not need guild functionality inside them.

     f. Such games do not need to be able to recruit from outside the guild. However, if postings in game official areas are                  allowed to be placed as server ads, these should be maintained.

     g. When added the game should follow all other actions for the add, such as streaming and review.

 

7. Supreme Commander Military Governorship: Such a status may be granted upon request by the office of Supreme Commander only for either a new game add or for extraordinary circumstances. If the game is a new provisional official guild, the rules for provisional games must be followed. When for taking a current official game our of normal order the following additional rules must be complied with:

    a.The Quorum must determine that the game needs immediate attention to being into compliance with 6-SC-26.  That the           Supreme Commander has provided reason that a Game Commander in control of such a game is not in that guild’s best           interest. That it is in the best interests of the guild as a whole to allow the change of status.

    b. When such status is granted, the Supreme Commander will have direct and full control of the guild with all Game                    Commander rules, requirements, and duties suspended during that time.

    c. The Supreme Commander will not be considered as acting as a Game Commander.

    d. Such status may not exceed a grant of 6 months but may be renewed.

    e. All membership protection rules remain in effect.

    f. The Supreme Commander must have a plan for returning the game back to normal order, and most report on this plans           progress at each monthly meeting of the Quorum.

    g. Such status may be revoked by the Quorum at any time with a majority vote.

 

7-GCR-04.  Naming of in game guild holdings:

Any guild holding that can be named must have Pegasus Command or a recognized abbreviation of such, like Peg Com, PC, etc.in the holdings name.

If the holding can be renamed at anytime, even if there is a cost for such, the naming is under the jurisdiction of the Supreme Commander. This can be done, only after a vote of the members in the guild of that game, at the time the holding is named to suggest names for the holding. This vote is to ensure member participation in the process but will not be binding. 

If the holding cannot be renamed, the naming requires a vote of the Quorum.

7-GCR-09.  Official Guild Games that do not meet sustainability, may upon motion of the President or Supreme Commander be moved under the direct command of such requesting official.
