Sacred Seven Clan Ranking Structure
Generals (GEN) - Clan Command
The Generals are the administrators and commanding officers of the “Sacred Seven” clan. The generals are referred to as the Clan Command (CC) and are made of the clans founders. The clan command is a council style ruling body in which every General has an equal say in the operations of the clan. The Clan Command strives for unity and a consensus decision at all times, but with odd number of generals (3), if issues must come to a vote a conclusion can be reached.
Colonel (COL) - Clan Officer
The Clan Officers (CO) are among the highest ranking members of the clan. These are the members who lead the clan by example, as well as help enforce the clan’s rules and policies. While not decision makers in the clan structure, the Clan Officers have a share in the clans operations and make direct recommendations to the CC. These members may also be given extra responsibilities to help lead and govern specific portions or divisions of the clan. Clan Officers are appointed by the CC, and have access to the Clan Officers/CO section of the forums where they may propose issues and ideas to the CC. These ranks are honorary positions of assigned ranks for the most dedicated and valued members of the clan.
Clan Advisors (CA)
The Clan Advisors are made up of past Clan Command members who serve as advisors to the CC and mentors to the entirety of the clan, without holding administrative duties. They retain access to the CC and CO, and provide valuable input and guidance for the clan.
The Game Officers are ranks reserved for those members who serve the clan in its mission of fielding a competitive team game. The Game Officers are the direct commanders of active clan games. These members lead their peers directly and by example. Active GC’s in the Game Officer ranks have access to the CO section, and are the first line of command within the clan.
Captain (CPT) – Game Captain (GC)
The position of Captain is the Game Captain or Game Commander (GC), and is completely responsible for, and in command of, their respective game and makes all decisions on game related issues. Captains are also part of the Clan Officer (CO) section of the forum, where they aid operation of the clan with respect to their game.
Lieutenant (LT) - Game Executive Officer (XO)
The position of Lieutenant is the GC’s second in command, or Executive Officer (XO). The XO aids in the management of their respective game, the games operations, and its members. This is an optional position, and not every game may have a Lieutenant.
MW W4 W3 W2 W1
The Warrant Officer rank is a Special Officer position assigned by a higher officer to perform temporary duties and assignments. This includes members assigned by a games GC to serve as in-game leaders in officer positions. This also includes members assigned to clan specific task or project by the CC.
Master Warrant Officer – Clan Special Officer
An assigned position by the CC to do a specific task for the clan. This may be a temporary position (e.g., someone assigned to design a new web page or run a contest) or permanent position (e.g., someone to moderate the Gallery or maintain an external web site).
Warrant Officer (W1-W4) – Game Special Officer
The various Warrant Officer grades are assigned position by an active games GC into leadership roles as an in-game officer (e.g., platoon leader or squad leader) and hold rank in their game. The GC will determine how many game officers are necessary and, use the grades of W1-W4 as necessary.
The Enlisted ranks for the active members of the Clan. These members are the heart of the clan, and the ones playing the games, posting on the message boards, and playing in the clan matches. These are the regular (non-probationary) full time members of the clan and illustrate a members exceptional service and dedication to the clan.
Sergeant Major (SGM)
The Rank of Sergeant Major is obtained by service to the clan by either taking leadership rolls within the clan, performing exemplary duties for the benefit of the clan, or by serving multiple years with honor. The Sergeant Major rank is an honorary rank to designate exceptional performance of the senior S7 members who have proven their worth time and again within the clan.
The Sergeants are members who have proved to be valuabe members to the clan by continued service (normally around 1 year of dutiful service), or contributing to the clan on multiple fronts (multiple game/extra duties/etc.).
The ranks of Corporal and Private are the normal active members in the clan. These are the members playing with each other in clan games and conversing on the message boards. Exceptional service can result in promotion to higher ranks in the clan order.
Corporal (CPL) – Active Member promoted for upholding the clans ideals and beliefs.
Private (PVT) – New Recruit who is a full member of the clan upon passing probation

Normal clan progression should follow what is described below, and can be seen as a "career path"; for those who strive to excel in the clan-
Start unranked as a probationary member when joining the clan. We accept all members who agree to the code of honor, maturity, and respect. After the first roll call can be nominated to the position of Private by demonstrating honorable game play. A new member should move to PVT or be dismissed from the clan after a few roll calls (months).
As PVT the new member has full access to the clan. One the PVT has demonstrated full knowledge of the clans principles of honor, and contribute to the clan in clan games and events, they should rank up to Corporal. A new member should become CPL around the 6 month mark on average.
At the rank of Corporal the member is becoming accustomed to the full spectrum of the clan, the clans operations, and the clan structure. Around the 1 year mark the member should be comfortable with clan, be playing with other clan members, provide numerous contributions to the clan, and make the move up to Sergeant.
The Sergeant positions should be the bulk of the clan with everyone playing with each other in clan games and conversing on the message boards. Those who demonstrate leadership traits and abilities, demonstrate exceptional service to the clan, and have served the clan for multiple years with honor, may be nominated for promotion into the rank of Sergeant Major. These are usually the first members the CC looks for when deciding future Game Commanders to lead the clan in battle.
The Special Officer ranks are for those dedicated members who have been chosen by Game or Clan leadership for special rolls within the clan.
The Game Officer (GO) ranks are vital to the operation of the clan. These members reach their rank because of their great service over a long period of time, or by leading games when appointed by the CC. They are truly the officer positions, and are responsible for leading members in competition.
The Clan Officers (CO) are clan leaders whom are all decided upon and appointed by the CC. A Clan Officer position is truly for the upper echelon of the clan who are responsible for leading members in and out of games.
The Clan Command (CC) are the administrators and commanding officers of the clan.
