Player Code of Conduct
At Uplink, our goal is not only to make better gamers, but to make better human beings. We know how kids can create bad habits and exhibit unwanted behaviors and emotions. Its all a part of gorwing up. But, sometimes, video games contribute to that bad behavior, especially if they are playing alone. The isolation allows them to drift from center and leads to aggressiveness, rage quitting, getting “tilted” and more.
Our goal is to teach our players how to adapt and recognize when they are getting tilted. We teach them proper etiquette when gaming and we adhere to our Player Code of Conduct which you can see below. We review the Code with every player and make them sign a document committing to abide by the code.
As a player…
I will never act or speak in an offensive manner to other players or to their actions in the game, regardless of whether they are opponents or teammates.
I will never use language, nicknames, or other expressions that insult another player.
I will never use language or actions that refer to any violence.
I will never act in a threatening or violent manner.
I will never cheat.
I will respect my coaches, my teammates, and my opponents.
In addition to our Player Code-of-Conduct, each family receives a supplemental document which is based on the rules and etiquette for esports developed by the group, Respect All Compete.
