Vipers; Marine Tactical Force Recon
Viper's Policy and Regulations
"The Viper's community was founded for the mutual enjoyment of combat computer gaming. Vipers is dedicated to improving the overall enjoyment of combat gaming in general by attracting and retaining quality mature gamers. We are friends first and gamers second. We always have each other’s back in this squad. We are a “Band of Brothers” in the truest sense of the word in the computer gaming world. We share a passion for excellence in both tactical gaming and squad administration. We also highly value the Comradely associated with membership in the squad."
"The Vipers Policy answers the need for a clear and concise set of rules and regulations, located in a single document and available to the Vipers community and the public. The sole purpose of this document is to make all members and potential members aware of what they can expect of the squad and what the squad expects of them."
"In keeping with the highest traditions of the military, we take care of our own. While not a rigid Para-military squad, much of the structure of the squad and certainly the teams are adapted from actual military organization and civilian professional management because IT WORKS RELIABLY and CONSISTENTLY when adhered to by ALL members. The majority of the leadership consists of either military or civilian professional specialists who also happen to be passionate about combat gaming and thus are willing to invest inordinate amounts of time, money, and energy for the good of the squad. We have many active duty, ex-military, and military family members. For the majority of us, this is a way to honor our military and their families for their sacrifice for our country and the freedoms we enjoy. We have a squad leadership that is second to none in the gaming community."
