2021 Rank Expectation Changes


Recommended Posts

The Commanders have taken a hard look at our rank expectations in order to institute massive reforms that not only affect community leadership as a whole, but also specifically address expounding upon the pathway to its highest leadership role by expanding the essential roles based on the demands of the community. Previously, expectations for 1* and 2* required heavy divisional leadership. While these expectations are still contained as a avenue to advancement, additional tracks were created based on the needs of OD Gaming. The principles behind these different expectations categories are now tiered to be easily followed. They fall into three categories show below: Core, Practical, and Exceptional Expectations. In addition, we have enlisted the help of the Generals to review and update the rank of Colonel and below. These expectations are to go into effect after the 2/2021 Admin Meeting and specifically will be first administered to the Generals and Commanders during the next Evaluation. Let me know if you have any questions and these changes will be updated on our Guide to Everything.

 

Previous Rank Expectations

 

New Expectations

Core Expectations represent the fundamental responsibilities of that rank. The member is expected to fulfill all core expectations, they are the bare minimum of what must be completed to maintain the rank, and failing to do them will eventually result in a demotion.

 

Practical Expectations are the responsibilities we generally expect to see some of in addition to the core responsibilities. Unlike the core expectations a member doesn't have to fulfill all of the standard expectations, but they should be completing some. Failing to fulfill any may not necessarily result in a demotion (that is ultimately up to their peers) but it will certainly disqualify them from future promotions.

 

Exceptional Expectations are the gold standard of the rank, they represent going above and beyond. Each exceptional expectation fulfilled will greatly increase the probability of a future promotion occurring.
