Welcome to Xiled Gaming Network! – built by gamers, for gamers. – Our community has thrived and evolved over a decade. Together we’ve formed the premier environment to game, socialize, and grow. — This is your invitation to join the ranks of our internet family.

Gamenights: Gamenights are required to be at least 45 minutes long, and consist of a minimum of  members of Xiled Syndicate or an affiliate organization. For games that have a lower maximum of players such as Apex Legends the minimum required members is reduced to  in order to accommodate for the reduced maximum team size.
Social nights: Social nights are required to be at least 45 minutes long and consist of a minimum of  members of Xiled Syndicate or an affiliate organization. Social nights differ from Gamenights in context. A social night does not require a game to be played but does require active participation from group members. Social nights are meant to promote activity and conversation between members.

Though in Xiled Syndicate we have a set of rules and policies we uphold, there are two specific rules we would like to go over, known as our two Bylaws.
- Respect ALL Gamers
- Leave No Man Behind
Xiled Gaming Network is governed and sustained by the following key Policies. -Subject to change-
While we are a laid-back community, we ask all XGN members (not on LOA) to participate in activities within the community. Participation is what makes our communities grow and brings members together, ensuring we remain a healthy and active organization. -Console Activity: Members of XGN holding an active rank of Staff + are required to take part in meetings, game nights, and other activities a minimum of once a month. -Attendance: Every staff member of XGN is important to the overall success of OUR communities. When you are not here, someone else must fill your role. Consequently, you are expected to report to games, practices, and meetings on time at the scheduled start of the day. Reporting to games, practices, and meetings shows initiative and responsibility.
In order to have a Membership Revocation, former involvement in any Non-XS community, or Website Ban officially appealed, the member or potential members (including during any training of a new member into the community) must go through the XGN Court System. However, please be aware of any minimum time requirements before appealing (see Disciplinary Policy below). All appeals will be processed in a transparent and unbiased manner by XGN Senior Leadership. Once an appeal has been processed and decided upon by senior leaders, the decision is final. If the appeal is denied and the member, former member, or community disagrees with the court’s ruling, a subsequent appeal may be reconsidered after 30 days from the date of the ruling. At any point in this process, the Head Court Judge may add or remove any stipulations in regards to said member’s return. If the member contacts any court judges before or during an investigation, they will be automatically denied and must wait an additional 30 days before they can re-submit their appeal. The XGN Court judges have the right to determine what rank is suitable for members to return, in which case the ruling will be final. Individuals who are not directly involved with a case asking for information or arguing with decisions may result in disciplinary actions!
All members of Xiled Syndicate will be required to have access, in some part, to the Discord App for the sake of proper communication within and without the Division. This is accessible through any smartphone, PC, laptop, or even via Microsoft Edge (on the Xbox One) or other browsers (if only to the extent of viewing). Any member of Xiled Syndicate wishing to have or create their own server: – Has to get permission from their Division Leader. The Division Leader will then notify their Director, which will, in turn, take the request to the XGN Council. – The XGN Council will create the requested server and set up all security permissions. Following this, they will continue to monitor the server for the safety of its members.
An important part of Xiled Gaming Network’s mission is to provide equal gaming opportunities to all gamers. Discrimination against anyone, including but not limited to game (play/skill), race, age, gender bias, sexual orientation, gender orientation, religious affiliation, national origin, disability, political affiliation, orany other personal interest, or investment is STRICTLY PROHIBITED. Xiled Gaming Network strives to provide a community environment that is fair and equal to all its members.
XGN believes in maintaining a safe and healthy gaming experience by promoting an open, friendly, and supportive gaming environment for all its members. Violence and/or threats of violence have no place in our community. Violence and/or threats are never an effective solution to any problem. Members are expected to immediately report any violation(s) of this policy to their superior officer(s). Any member found threatening another member, will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including, Strike, Demotion, and/or Membership Revocation from XGN!
XGN strictly prohibits any member from impersonating or misrepresenting themselves in any way. This includes, but is not limited to, impersonation or misrepresentation of a member’s rank, department affiliation, activity completions (including testing/training), and/or military status for the purpose of manipulation or abuse of rules, policies, or special consideration(s) not deserved. XGN conveys huge respect for all those who sacrifice themselves in defense of their countries. Impersonation of any military affiliation is prohibited, and those caught violating this policy may face severe disciplinary action(s), including but not limited to, permanent revocation of your membership.
A person wishing to return to the community that has been previously Membership Revoked or has been a member of Other Clans/Communities will be evaluated by the XGN court system.
In XGN, we wish to ensure that members of all ranks are given a path to speak to leadership. This includes, but is not limited to, topics about harassment, discrimination, and general clan questions or concerns. It is preferred that you use the Chain of Command and speak directly to the leaders placed over you. However, if after talking to your leadership you feel the need for additional discussion, you are welcome to talk with your higher leadership by sending a private message to any or all members of the XGN High Council. The Open Door Policy is not an invitation to circumvent the Chain of Command. You, as a member of XGN, must always take responsibility, knowing that circumventing the Chain of Command may result in disciplinary action. The relationship between you and your leaders will be one of the most important relationships you will have in XGN.
Xiled Gaming Network is a family-oriented community. Being a community, we understand that people will pair up. If two members do pair up, we ask them to please take responsibility and follow the rules outlined; this includes all marriages or “real-life” relationships of any sort. Taking responsibility for your relationship, you will be asked if your relationship gets in the way of your XGN duties, the duties of others, the running of the division, or the well-being of any member in the community. Disciplinary action can be up to, but not limited to, a Membership Revoke. This does qualify for real-life relationships if both parties are both in XGN. This policy does not permit any member over the age of 18 to be in any form of relationship with a member under the age of 18. Violation of this subject of the policy will result in an immediate Membership Revoke of both parties. XGN does allow personal “real-life” relationships within the same division. Due to the potential perception of a conflict of interest, the division leader reserves the right to ask a member to transfer divisions should there be sufficient evidence to show the relationship negatively affects their division. This is to prevent the idea of favoritism or “non-favoritism”. Adult members, over the age of 18, may not have, pursue, or engage in, any unlawful personal ‘pseudo-sexual’ relationship with another member under the age of 18 while in the community. No matter where they reside. We understand some countries are different but to remediate any conflicts the age limit is set to a firm 18 years of age.
Slander is the oral communication of false statements that are harmful to a person’s reputation. Libel is the written or printed communication of false statements through words, pictures, or any form other than spoken words or gestures. Defamation is the communication of a false statement, or claim, which harms the reputation of an individual person or group. If the statements are proven to be true, it is a complete defense to a charge of slander. Oral opinions that don’t contain statements of fact don’t constitute slander. Slander is also defined as an act of communication that causes someone to be shamed, ridiculed, held in contempt, and lowered in the estimation of the community. The basic elements of a claim of slander include: A defamatory statement Published to third parties Where the speaker or publisher knew or should have known, that a statement(s) was false
All members have the right to ask for a division transfer. All transfers must be requested by the member wishing to transfer, in person, via direct message or verbally. The proper way to request a transfer is to either have a message forwarded up the chain of command to the Division Leader, or the member may go directly to the Division Leader and place their request verbally. Transfers are typically approved and completed without issue. Only the Division Leader of the, sought-after, or “new”, division may deny the transfer. The division the member is seeking to leave cannot deny the transfer. The member may then select another potential division for transfer, or choose to rescind their request (stay in their current division). The member will then be invited into a party with their existing Division Leader, or their proxy, accompanied by the Division Leader of their new division, and the transfer will commence.Simple breakdown steps to a division transfer: Notify your Division Leader of your request, verbally or in writing. The Division Leader will aid you in pursuing the transfer by contacting the leader of the desired division. The Division Leader will notify the Division Leader of the requested transfer and discuss the specifics surrounding the request. The ONLY information which may be conveyed, is the member’s CURRENT status. No other information may be divulged/conveyed about the member including (but not limited to) the member’s character, history, conduct, attitude, professionalism, or any lack thereof. This means the Division Leader cannot bad-mouth or put down the member that is looking to transfer. The privacy of the member must be preserved and protected at all times. Xiled Syndicate members are allowed (3) Division Transfers only. Any more will result in an automatic membership revoked. ALL Division Leaders are responsible for filling out the Division Transfer form. Failure to do so will result in an “invalid” transfer! MEMBERS WHO TRANSFER CAN NOT BE PROMOTED IN A NEW DIVISION FOR A MINIMUM OF  DAYS! THIS IS TO PREVENT DIVISIONAL AND COMMUNITY COAXING.
Members are NOT permitted to contact any other organization or company on behalf of Xiled Syndicate or XGN to facilitate or discuss community operations/relations. Report ALL questions, comments, and concerns about external organizations or their members to your Division Leader who will ensure the information reaches the appropriate individual(s).
This symbol of recognition is given to those Leaders in the community that has shown good leadership skills, commitment, and loyalty to the community. Those who acquire this will do so to pay respect to the many leaders of XGN that come before them and set an example of excellence! REQUIREMENTS
- Must hold the rank of Divison Staff or higher.
- Must be an active member of the community and in good standing.
- Must pass a verbal test given by a Director or higher.
- Any member that has already obtained the “7 / VII” will be grandfathered into this policy.
Whenever a member is to be investigated and/or reprimanded, two (2) officers above the member’s rank must be present at all times. No one else but the offender and two (2) officers may be allowed to attend.
XGN considers its confidential and proprietary information, including the confidential and proprietary information of our members, to be one of its most valuable assets. As a result, members must carefully protect, and must not disclose to any third party, any confidential and proprietary information belonging to XGN or its members. Protected information includes, but is not limited to, matters of a technical nature, any information technologies, product sources, product research, designs, matters of a business nature including, but not limited to, member lists, member data, strategies, and/or Board Room related topics.
Strike policy: Strike System If a member breaks the Code of Conduct (mild or serious infractions), he or she will be subject to a “strike”. A strike is valid for 365 days, after 365 days, the strike will no longer count towards the member.
- One Strike will result in the member being placed into the “I Strike Discord Role”.
- Two Strikes will result in the member being Rank Revoked for an appropriate amount of time and placed into the “II Strike Discord Role”. This member may not receive any promotions for 30 days.
- Three Strikes will result in a Membership Revoke of the Member.
NOTE: In certain situations, an automatic MR may be warranted given substantial evidence and serious violations of the XS Code of Conduct. If a member leaves the community because a strike was given, that member is subject to a Membership Revoke. Only Co-Division Leaders and above may issue a strike against a member with proper evidence. All evidence must be posted in the strike channel in the Xiled HQ chat for a strike to be considered viable, if evidence is not supported the strike will not adhere to the person receiving said strike. Rank Revoke: This disciplinary step is for infractions of the Rules or Code of Conduct that warrant a Second Strike. A member that is Rank Revoked shall be relieved of all staff duties and moved down to the Veteran Member rank until the Rank Revoke has expired. Once the required time has expired on the Rank Revoke it is up to the Division Leader or appropriate senior leader to decide what rank the member may return as. Only Senior Staff and above may Rank Revoke a member given they have proper evidence. Directors and above may Rank Revoke up to  Days with the joint approval of at least 1 other director+. XGN High Council may Rank Revoke indefinitely. DIVISION LEVEL D.N.H. The Division Leader may choose to “D.N.H.” a member who has broken the Code of Conduct (CoC) or Policies. Only Division Leaders and above may “D.N.H.”. The member which has been “D.N.H.’d” has two days (48 hours) to find a division to transfer to. The member will advise their previous Division Leader of what division they wish to transfer to. At this point, the Division Leader will set up the transfer. At no point in time is any member allowed to transfer Divisions without approval from their Division Leader. If, after 2 days, the member is unable to locate a suitable division, the member is then considered a non-member and is Membership Revoked. A member is only allowed to be D.N.H (2) times from any division. A third D.N.H will result in an automatic Membership Revoke. MEMBERSHIP REVOKE A Membership Revoke is used when a member has severely (or continuously) broken the CoC, to the extent that senior leadership deems them entirely unfit for the community and must be removed immediately. See Membership Reinstate Policy. The following list includes, but is not limited to, actionable offenses which may result in a member, or members, being Membership Revoked: Harassment (including sexual) Threats of Violence (credible) Information Technology Sabotage Stalking Felonious Activity We DO NOT condone illegal activities of any sort. All are subject to immediate removal from the community. Disciplinary Levels of Escalation: There are 4 primary disciplinary levels of escalation that must be considered when rules have been broken by a member of XGN. -Verbal Warning- A verbal warning is a disciplinary step taken for minor offenses and breaches of CoC. Be mindful that this is meant to be the only warning necessary. An offense of the same type or nature after the member has previously been warned should automatically qualify for stronger disciplinary action. Be sure to always utilize the golden rule and select the appropriate environment to talk with a member. -Demotion- A demotion is a disciplinary step taken primarily for a member’s failure to correctly execute staff duties. In some rare cases a demotion may be appropriate in conduct issues where a Strike would be too much or in addition to a strike if deemed reasonable. For the first case where a member is not doing what is required of their rank as staff a demotion should almost always be preceded by a verbal warning informing the staff member of the issue. -Strike- A strike is a disciplinary action recommended by Co-Division Leaders and above for conduct violations of the CoC. Strikes may also be given out in response to repeated minor conduct violations given the member has received a verbal warning for similar conduct in the past. Strikes are not meant to be given out to members that fail to properly execute the duties of their staff role. -Membership Revoke- Only Directors, Senior Directors, and XGN High Council members may recommend a member for Membership Revoke. This is the absolute final step in the disciplinary process and holds much more weight than any other level. Membership Revoke recommendations are voted upon by Directors and above. Membership Revokes are meant to remove members that commit serious or repeated violations of the Code of Conduct.
XGN will not tolerate harassment or intimidation of our members in any situation. Harassment is governed by state laws, which vary from state to state, but is usually defined as a course of conduct that annoys, threatens, intimidates, alarms, or puts a person in fear of their safety. Harassment is unwanted, unwelcome, and uninvited behavior that demeans threatens or offends the individual. Intimidation includes, but is not limited to, knowingly putting another person (or persons) in fear of harm to one’s physical, mental, emotional, or personal loss. Additionally, intimidating any XGN member in any way that holds their membership, rank, or title hostage in lieu of inappropriate or non-governed performance is STRICTLY PROHIBITED. Example: threatening or intimidation for more than the minimum rank or membership requirements is strictly prohibited. Violations to this policy may result in severe disciplinary action(s), including but not limited to, Revocation of your membership. Additionally, you may even face criminal prosecution to the fullest extent of the law, should the situation provide for it.
There are three (3) types of LOA: Short-Term LOA, Long-Term LOA, and Military LOA. Short-Term LOA: A member may request a “Short-Term” Leave of Absence from their XGN membership at any time without denial. The member will receive an LOA, and then be subsequently relieved of any and all responsibilities during their requested absence period. If the member is an officer, an equal (or superior) officer will be assigned to cover their responsibilities while on LOA. The period which qualifies as a “Short-Term” LOA is 1 to 15 days. Upon returning from a “Short-Term” LOA within the allotted time frame, the member is restored to active status and returned to their previous position before being placed on LOA. All members on LoA must have the LoA role in the Xiled Gaming Network Server. Should the member not return to their division in the allotted time frame, the member will automatically be upgraded to a “Long-Term” LOA status for the duration of the “Long-Term” time limit (75 days more). The member will then be removed from their division tag to allow for XGN related progress to occur. The member’s position may then be made available for another member to be promoted into. Upon returning late, the TRANSFER POLICY will apply. Long-term LOA: A member may receive a “Long-Term” leave of absence from their XGN membership at any time. The member will then be subsequently relieved of any and all responsibilities during their absence. The period for which qualifies as “Long-Term” LOA is 1 to 90 days. A member on “Long-Term” LOA must be removed from their division tag(s). Should the member not return to their “post” in that time frame, the member will automatically be removed and subject to the ACTIVITY / INACTIVITY POLICY. Military LOA: A member may receive a “Military” Leave of Absence from their Xiled Syndicate membership at any time. The member will be subsequently relieved of any and all responsibilities during their absence. Military LOA is 1 to 365 days. Should the member not return to their division in that time frame, the member will automatically be removed from XGN, and become subject to the REJOINING POLICY. This is necessary due to the continual growth and evolution of XGN Membership and Policies, which after 365 days (or more), will have changed substantially. Any member found to have falsified their military status or utilizing “Stolen Valor” for the purposes of a Military LOA, may be subject to disciplinary action(s), including but not limited to, Revocation of your membership. Procedure for LOA:
- Member must notify their Division Leader for LOA status.
- Member must place LOA in their Discord name and be given the LOA Role.
- Must report to their Division Leader to be taken off of LOA
- Removes LOA from their Discord name
LOA provides a needed time away for personal reasons. LOA is a consideration to its membership, which XGN recognizes, for needed time away from the community (for personal or real-life demands). If a member is found to be using the LOA process to shelter themselves from their responsibilities (shirking), they may face disciplinary action(s), including but not limited to, Membership Revocation.
No rank is EVER guaranteed. Members may not hold a rank (or title) without first successfully completing the Official XGN test and/or training for that position. Acting ranks (e.g.: “Acting Team Leader”), are to be secured by a superior rank, not a subordinate. For this example, a Senior Staff member would be asked to act as Team Leader until such time as a new Team Leader could be promoted from the ranks, or transferred into the division from another existing one. Again, successful completion of the appropriate test/training must occur first. Staff and Veteran Staff level promotions may ONLY be affected by the division’s Team Leader, unless the situation requires a Member to be promoted to Team Co-Leader/Team Leader, which will then be administered by the Division Leader. Should there be a need to fill a Division Staff position, the Division Leader is responsible to promote a qualified member to that position. If the vacancy is in the Co-Division Leader or Division Leader position, the responsibility falls on the Director to submit a qualified member to the XGN High Council for voting. All ranks above Co-Division Leader are voted in by the XGN High Council. To obtain the ranks of Staff, specific LDP slide-shows and testing are MANDATORY. Failure to do so will result in an AUTOMATIC demotion as well as possible disciplinary actions to any and all Division Staff members involved in said promotions!
Real-life comes first, but not to the detriment of the community. XGN recognizes that members have a real-life presence outside of the community, and members are expected to handle their personal life first. However, the responsibilities you voluntarily accepted are still expected to be upheld. If you cannot uphold your duties, then either do not accept, or please surrender the responsibility. Be aware that all requirements of staff members within XGN will take a certain amount of your time away from your gaming and/or personal life. This is voluntary. DO NOT accept a staff position if you will not be able to meet those requirements.
Members are restricted from participating in more than three (3) departments at any given time. This is to ensure members are able to commit fully to those departments rather than only give a little to several.
(S)exual (H)arassment (A)ssault (R)esponse (P)revention; S.H.A.R.P. Any suggestion made to any member that sexual favors will affect any term or condition of membership with XGN will not be tolerated. It is the policy of XGN that any harassment, including acts which create a hostile gaming environment, or any other discriminatory act(s) directed against our members, will result in swift and severe discipline, up to and including, Membership Revoke. We will not tolerate any such harassment of our members by anyone. For purposes of this policy, sexual harassment is defined as: Any type of sexually oriented conduct, whether intentional or not, which is unwelcome, and has the purpose, or effect, of creating a gaming environment which is hostile, offensive, or coercive. The following are examples of conduct that, depending upon the circumstances, may constitute sexual harassment. Sexual harassment may include anything from calling a person a derogatory name to making advances of a sexual nature. Other forms of sexual harassment include: Verbal abuse of a sexual nature; sexually degrading, or vulgar, words to describe an individual. The display of sexually suggestive objects, pictures, posters or cartoons. Unwelcome comments about an individual’s body. Asking questions about a person’s sexual preferences, sexual jokes, language, nicknames, advances, or propositions. Written or oral conduct. Members must bring any violation of this policy to the immediate attention of their leaders so they can take it up to a Senior Director. This policy is one of the three exceptions to breaking the Chain of Command.
The training process is a multi-step process that can be completed at different times, however, new potential recruits must be trained within 72 hours. No one is to be recruited while belonging to another community, excluding Professional Organizations the potential new member is a “fan” of e.g.: FaZe, OpTic, nV, MLG Official Xiled Syndicate Training Guide (Oct 2021) Parties and Status- So that leadership can properly and efficiently contact you as a member, we ask that all members keep their parties open so that they can join if needed. Parties should only be locked down when discussing XGN business, or if a Senior Director or higher is in the party and requests the party to be placed on Invite Only. We also ask that you do NOT kick/remove members from parties. If you should have an issue with another member or non-member, please leave the party and start another. If the situation persists, you may be permitted to lock your party. A member should always keep their status set to Online. NOTE: Due to open foreign/domestic relations with other groups and individuals, the leadership of Xiled Syndicate must often keep Party Chats closed in order to protect the members of Xiled Syndicate within them. Members may only be permitted to set their status as ‘Do Not Disturb’ under 3 circumstances: If they are not currently in front of/active at their console, are currently on an LOA Status, or if permitted by Divisional Staff. In any of these situations, they are still required to notify Lower Staff and/or Division Staff. If a member is currently not active or conducting Xiled Syndicate business or gaming, the previous restrictions do not apply. However, if there are repeated questionable situations or abuse of these rules regarding “Do Not Disturb”, the member may be subject to questioning by Lower Staff or Division Staff.
XGN is a Neutral/Non-Aggressive Gaming Entity. We neither condone, nor participate, in hostile activities including, but not limited to, Poaching, Clan-Hitting, or Public Defamation. We are a friendly and safe gaming community that works vigorously to encourage and maintain a safe and positive gaming environment for gamers around the world. XGN does NOT accept members of any other organized gaming group. All former members of another team must meet the standards and follow the process listed in the Code of Conduct rule #4 as well as the “Training” policy. Additionally, recruits may not be recruited into XGN within 30 days of previous membership of any gamer community, or clan including those within XGN. NOTE: All recruits of XGN must NOT have another organized gaming group within their platform name and must NOT be permitted to join the community until they have changed said username.
