  • TG etiquette on non-TG servers

    I have a question about how we as tagged TG members are supposed to conduct ourselves on other servers. The other night I was playing on a non-TG server and it was anything goes, which was actually stated in the rules at the login screen, pretty much everyone was suiciding and using various tactics that would not fly on the TG servers. Anyhow, I employed a tactic that killed lots of people and at some point someone commented that they expected more from a TG member. I simply stated that I was employing tactics that were acceptable and seemed to be expected on the server but it still made me feel bad that they had said something. What's everyone's take on this?

      A general agreement is, if your wearing the TG tags you follow the TG rules wherever you are. If you think your doing something sketchy, then simply remove the tags first.

        or never put them on in the first place.

          Well ya, but the important thing is that we do not want people associating TG with certain behavior.

            That's interesting that someone on a random server quickly recognized and knew what the TG tags stood for. Was it another TGer?

                TG is bigger than you think or give credit to.

                  I didn't recognize the name and I don't remember it. You'll have to excuse me for saying this but I don't feel like my question was a bad question. There are plenty of servers that are modified simply for people to be able to do things that aren't normal, usually they are non-ranked servers. I just assumed that if you are playing on a server that encourages, let's say suicide tactics or that is so modified it requires you to do something to that effect then it's ok and should be acceptable for a TG member to do. I would be fine with removing my tags if that were required but I guess what I'm getting at is I don't want someone logging in to server X that promotes and/or encourages some type of behavior and is a part of the game through modification and someone complains about it.

                  I'm ok with not engaging in questionable tactics, however, if I were to play on a server that put me at a huge disadvantage for following a TG server rule would it be ok to use those tactics? This is all hypothetical of course because 99% of the time I play on TG servers because I like the rules.

                    Wearing the [TG] tag

                    TG is all about fun. We are not a clan, we don't have tryouts, and we don't grief new players. If you like the way we play and play by our rules, then you are welcome and can play TG for life. If you support TG for what it is and want to show that support, the [TG] tag is a good way to do it. Many players who love it here chose not to sport the tag in their playername, and that's fine, too; the option is there for you to take or leave. Notes:
                    • Wearing the [TG] tag means that one is an ambassador for TacticalGamer and our philosophy; regardless of where one plays, a 'tagged' player's actions must always meet this standard.
                    • You may see a number included in the tag, such as [TG-12th] or [TG-505]; these tags are worn by members of TG "In-house Squads". These squads are formed by players that have banded together to develop tactics, procedures and missions.
                    • BC2 doesn't allow the 'pipe' symbol and has default tag brackets added into the game, so the [ & ] are on by default.. You just need to enter TG without any bracket or pipe. (In House Squads can choose what to use for a designator after TG- )

                      I already read that, it doesn't say that you can't play according to server rules on other servers. I interpret being an ambassador as being respectful of others, playing your class correctly, and teamwork. We have certain rules on TG servers that are absolutely frowned upon and we have "gentlemens rules" if I'm not mistaken. Thanks but I guess I'm not explaining myself correctly nor am I getting the clarification I was looking for.

                        Umm how about if you wear our TG tags anywhere here, or there, your representing the way we play, our standards and our player SOPs, if, for whatever reason you feel the need not to play the way our tags represent us, simply take them off when you go abroad to other servers...seems simple to me. :)

                          Seems to me it was someone just raging on you for killing them... and saying something about your TG tag was just a way for them to get back at you. I mean you can easily say that about any player with tags without knowing what the tags every represent.

                          I agree with Jack Bauer. Less grieving from outsiders and eventually from other members as well.

                          I agree, tho seems like TG has some "unwritten" or too generalized rules that seems to differ from player to player when interpreted.

                            Zenchi and Jack, I agree with you two, I'm thinking just take my tags off if I'm playing on a server with rules that are suspect. I'm not trying to be difficult or start an argument with anyone, I was just trying to get some clarification and see what everyone's interpretation of the rules were. I see people's point about no bunny-hopping or suicide tactics, which I don't do anyhow. Frankly, I'd be afraid that if I got into the habit of doing those things on another server I might inadvertently do it on the TG server so I don't do those things.

                            But as I said before, I do feel that when I play on other servers I am being an ambassador to TG, I'm respectful of others, and I try as best I can to work with my team. Anyhow, thanks for the input, I appreciate it.

                              If you want to play on a server like that and its a resonable hour, then there is generally another tg member that is willing to play with you. All you have to do is hop on ts and find them, and 99% of the time even 2 tg members will dominate the team that they are on without compromising the TG values.
