Mission

HotelCharlie Company is a community-driven fellowship of Call of Duty gamers who prefer multi-player game types with HardCore (HC) settings.

Our mission is to help shape the HC gaming experience through positive & proactive representation of our HC community.

We aim to show video game publishers & developers that the HC community is a valuable segment of their audience, & to encourage the continued expansion & refinement of their HC offerings.

We also aim to enjoy a better online gaming experience by teaming up for matches with other community members who share our passion for HC gaming & our positive values of fair play, teamwork, community, & fun.

"We seek unity, not through imposed control, but through harmonious initiative..."

Code of Conduct / Rules of Engagement

HotelCharlie Company members conduct themselves with honor & respect.

We play the game honorably without cheating, boosting, dashboarding, griefing, intentional team-killing, spawn-trapping, or otherwise exploiting loopholes in the game's mechanics or violating the game's terms of service.

We demonstrate good sportsmanship by celebrating our victories humbly without gloating, & learning from our losses without trash-talking opponents or blaming teammates.

When we play with a team, we play as a team, communicating relevant tactical info, coordinating maneuvers, supporting teammates, & working jointly towards the team's overall success.

We treat others with respect & evaluate others based solely on the honor & respect their behavior reflects.

We do not discriminate or express disparaging remarks with regards to age, gender, nationality, ethnicity, disability, religious beliefs, political affiliation, orientation, or vocation.

Though we play a game that is ESRB rated "M for mature," we endeavor to set a positive example & create a family-friendly atmosphere that is safe & acceptable for all audiences.

(While expletives may sometimes color our use of language, we do not sling profane insults, and we avoid obscene topics & crude humor.)

We act with honorable intentions without aims to deceive, swindle, or otherwise cause trouble or dishonestly profit at others' expense (no scamming, no spamming, no harassing, etc.).

This site (& none of its representatives or affiliates) does not give permission to use participants' contact information to advertise, sell, recruit, or otherwise bother with unsolicited offers or statements.
