Rules and Regulations of a Sherpa Activity

 

  • A Sherpa activity will not include more than 2 Sherpa-ees, as more than 2 stresses out a fireteam and may leave the activity members with a negative experience.

  • Only the standardized SGC mechanics/strats taught during Sherpa training will be instructed - unless altered by the Operations Manager, Division Lead, or Lead Sherpa. Sherpa mechanics and strats should be fairly uniform throughout each Division enabling Sherpa-ees to leave/complete one Sherpa’s activity and enter a different Sherpa’s fireteam and be adequately knowledgeable of his/her role in the same activity. 

  • It is understood and accepted that there may be times when, after several failed attempts at a particular mechanic, strategies need to be altered to allow for limited weapon loadouts and player experience. In these situations a Sherpa should make adjustments as necessary, yet without violating any Rules or Regulations.

  • Standardized SGC mechanics/strats may change based on revolving weapon metas. Any major changes will only be approved by the Division Lead, Sherpa Lead and Operations Director.

  • Actions to be avoided during any Sherpa activity:

    • Cheats, short cuts, or any strat that eliminates or alters a Sherpa-ees fundamental knowledge or participation in any component of an event will not be used during Sherpa activities unless previously cleared

    • Players will not be pulled from one encounter to another without the consent of the player and without first attempting to guide the player through the activity

    • Players will be given the opportunity to receive instruction, ask questions, adjust their loadouts and use a rally banner (if available) prior to starting an activity

    • Avoid Point and shoot instructions

       

  • All fireteam members are to remain respectful and maintain a sense of decorum while the Sherpa is explaining an activity. Should any unnecessary disruptions from a member of the fireteam, which interfere with the Sherpas ability to continue his/her explanation or which negatively impact the activity, the Sherpa should identify the disruption and the offending fireteam member(s) and request such disruption cease.
     

    •  The Sherpa should try to understand the source or root cause of the disruption calmly and unbiased to the best of his/her ability. 

    • If the offense is repeated, the Sherpa should issue a warning of ejection from the fireteam and clearly define again what the offense is and who the fireteam member(s) at risk are. 

    • If the disruption persists and the Sherpa has no other means of resolving the disruption, the offending fireteam member(s) may be ejected from the fireteam. 

    • If further communication is necessary between the Sherpa and the offending fireteam member, it should be conducted in a private party chat or DM in Discord. 

    • The Sherpa should then attempt to replace missing fireteam member(s) and continue the Sherpa activity.

  • If any issues arise during any Sherpa Activity, the Sherpa of said activity shall immediately inform his/her Lead Sherpa 

  • It is ultimately the goal of every activity that all fireteam members, including Sherpas, have a positive experience!​
