1. LoE has 3 parts to the squad:
Inactive: Players who have played in the squad but have
droped off the edge of the world.They do not respond to e-mail
and do not play, but have not violated any of the rules of
the team or caused embarrasement or dishonor to the squad.
They do not have the right to maintain the LoE tag, and must
go through normal recruitement procedures to return to the
squad. Although they are normally given a preference over
Reserve: Players who have earned the right to
maintain the LoE squad tag, but are not able to give the team
the time and energy required to be members of the Active team.
They must at least play online occasionally, and respond to
e-mail every once in a while (at least once within 30 days),
or post on the squad's website (loe.8m.com). The player must
request to be part of the Reserve squad. The Leader and the
Council cannot include a player in the Reserve, they must
suggest the player to request it. Be part of the Reserve squad
is an honor earned only by veteran members who cannot play
quite often anymore. They can go back to the Active team requesting
so to the Leader and the Council.
Active: The Active team are the Heart of the squad.
They are the members who are active, who respond to e-mail,
who show up for practices and who are focused on improving
For organizational purposes and based on time zones, the squad
is divided into 3 "Divisions" commanded by a Council
member. The Divisions are: LoE American Division, LoE Australian
Division and LoE European Division. These Divisions are not
identifiable within the squad's tag... there are shown only
on the website.
2. Only members of the Active team may play in League and
other competitions. Any member may play in scrimmages and
matches. The Leader and/or the Council will decide wich members
will be play a given regular match against other squad.
3. The Squad is governed by the Squad Leader and a Council
wich consists of the senior members of the Active team.
4. The other specified positions within the Active team are
Match Coordinators, Recruitement Coordinator, Official Host,
Website Manager (Webmaster) and MP. Other positions may be
created on an as needed basis.
5. All senior members of the Active team are responsible for
training and tactics.
6. Conflicts between team members will be handled by the Council,
and as last resort by the squad leader.
7. LoE is an equal opportunity squad who recruits members
without regard to race, color, religion, national origin,
citizenship, sex, marital status, ancestry, physical or mental
disability, medical condition, veteran status, or sexual orientation.
LoE do not recruits cheaters and glitchers.
8. Any Active LoE member may recommend a player for membership.
9. All prospective members must register on the LoE FORUMS
before being considered. This ensures they can locate the
website, and have enough interest to take the time to interact
with the squad members. They must provide enough information
about how to contact him and everything related to his profile
as a DF2 player. No player may be considered until they have
done so. Notice: the people responsible of contacting the
applicant are the Recruitment Coordinators. Also, a Recruitement
Coordinator is the person who will reply the e-mails regarding
recruitement issues. He will be the person who will guide
the applicants through the recruitement process.
10. After the team roster information has been received through
the application form, a Council vote is required to accept
the player as a Recruit. The squad leader may use veto power
whenever 2 other Council members agree with him. The leader
may request the whole squad to vote instead of just the Council.
11. After approval, the Recruits will be given a minimum
of 2 weeks to prove themselves for inclusion to the squad
rolls. They must attend at practices sessions and spend time
online with the rest of the team. Showing their ability and
their team attitude. During this period, they may use the
LoE tag with an R on the side: "£øË"R.
12. At the beginning of the tryout period, each prospective
member will be given certain information and must get Roger
Wilco and MSN IM up and operational on their computers. The
nickname used in this systems should be the same as the DF2
player name, if possible. During this period, their DF2 player
names will be included in the website.
13. At the end of the tryout (candidacy) period, an online
(MSN IM and LoE Server) test, covering the requests will be
given. A passing grade will allow the Recruit's final status
to be voted on by the Council (or the whole squad, when requested
by the Recruitment Coordonator or the Leader). The Squad Leader
may use veto power whenever 2 other Council members agree
14. After being approved by the Council as a full member,
the Recruit will be given his full membership status and he
will be asked the remove the R after the tag. Then, he will
be included in the ACTIVE squad.
15. Generally, only prospective players 17 years or older
may be considered for membership. There are lots of exceptions
made by the General Staff. Notice: The age requirement is
set, not because we wish to simply eliminate certain players,
but because generally, players too young: (1) do not have
as much control over their lives to be able to participate
fully, (2) do not fully understand the importance of supporting
their team mates tactically and are more individualists. The
exceptions are made with applicants that are below this age
but are proven teamplayers. Actually, the majority of LoE's
members are under 17 but they are LoEs beceause they are proven
Matches & Tournaments
16. Only the Council may challenge another squad, accept challenges
or register the squad for a tournament. The person reponsible
for matches and tourneys issues is the Match Coordinator,
who will be in charge of the mailing and match details. He
will work very closely to the Official Host.
17. LoE used to have a ranking system till the 23-jun-2001
but since the squad became like a "family", ranks
are no longer needed. This is a part of the evolution of the
Shorter names for matches
18. All LoE members are asked to use shorter players names
(4 to 5 letters maximum) after the tag during regular matches,
tourney matches, etc... Full player names are used only on
Novaworld rooms and Public rooms. This improves visibility
(when friendly tags are ON), legibility and communications
during matches (saving precious reading and typing times).
It is suggested to not use your tag in Novaworld due
the amount of impostors and cheaters fooling around those
servers. Use the tag in Public rooms instead.
Missed in Action label
19. A player being labeled on the website roster as M.I.A.
means that the Council is concerned about a persistent absence
and silence of the legionnaire. He does not show in practices
and do not respond to e-mails. The member labeled as M.I.A
who still want to be a LoE member, is suggested to contact
a Council member as soon as possible (or send an e-mail using
the Contact form). In other case, his name will be removed
from the list after a short period of time and he will be
considered as "Inactive". The announcement of his
retirement may be done at the squad's forum.
20. A player may inform the Council if he will not be able
to play for a while (a given period) in order to avoid to
be considered as a MIA. In case of an absence for long time,
he should request to be included in the Reserve team.
Rules of engagement
21. Do not cheat under any circumstances and do not use glitches.

and ALL LoE members agree by joining this squad to follow
DFHN policies regarding how to play the game as a sportsman.
This committement should not be broken. Breaking any of the
DFHN rules is the main reason why members can be banished
form the squad. Definitions about cheating and glitching can
be found at the DFHN website (http://dfhn.hypermart.net).
22. While communicating during a match, keep your messages
short and speak only to give or acknowledge orders unless
you have something important to say.
23. Behave yourself while talking to the enemy and try not
to respond to insults. During matches only the Leader may
talk with the enemy, unless you want to congratulate an opponent
for a kill.

would like to be treated.

and enforce these policies and rules. They are flexible and
were created to improve gameplay and teamplay, aswell to improve
the seriousness and prestige of the squad.
