About the Honor Squad

Learn more about our family of gamers

The Honor Squad is an online multi-gaming PC clan based in North America. We are dedicated to creating a fun, friendly environment that fosters long term membership and a family-like atmosphere. As the name implies, we strive to be first and foremost, honorable. We have an honor code we live by and we value words like integrity, honesty, selflessness, and respect. We enjoy teamwork, fellowship, loyalty and having fun, but not at the expense of others.

We are a family of gamers, from all walks of life, who enjoy playing games online with others in a team environment. Our framework is centered around a military-like promotion system based on team loyalty and service, and while rank and accomplishment must be respected, everyone is treated with respect.

Our atmosphere is almost completely casual, but when our members show interest we compete in ladders and tournaments. Sometimes we may also have competitions within the Honor Squad, but regardless the goal is always to have fun, better ourselves through the process and build a tight-knit group of friends.

It could take up to a week to review your application, but typically a day or two.

How do try outs work?

We don't have try outs persay since our main focus is not how high someone's KDR is. Instead, we recruit based on character. You can expect us to want to talk, hang out and play games with you to get a feel for who you are and if you're a good fit for our team. We also want you to get a good feel for who we are. This process could take an hour, a day or a week or two. It greatly depends on the time you spend with us.

What can I expect once I'm on the roster?

When a new member is added to the roster they undergo a 30-day evaluation period. During this time, they are assigned an orientation guide (a veteran member to guide them) and they are unable to wear the [ONR] tag. After the 30 days are over, as long as the new member is in good standing, they are promoted to Private and given their family tags.

The easiest way to move up in rank is through consistent service to the team, but members are automatically promoted based on loyalty to the team over a period of time.

How often can I be promoted?

You can be promoted no more than twice every 30 days and you should expect that being promoted twice in 30 days is not typical. Significant service contributions to the team are the best way to fast track promotions.
