Please note that the list of violations in these Clan Rules is not exhaustive. Wargaming reserves the right to impose restrictions for violations not expressly specified in these Clan Rules if required by changes in game mechanics or legislation, and should users invent new ways of gaining an unfair advantage or benefit in the Game.

11. Full and abbreviated clan names and clan mottoes and descriptions must not:
11.1. be implicitly or explicitly connected to any organizations, historical or political figures, particularly those convicted by an international tribunal of crimes against humanity that thus cause a negative reaction in a considerable number of people, or to any figures or names of terrorist organizations, including currently operating ones. Violation example: the use of Nazi attributes, abbreviations or symbols of any kind, e.g. “SS”, as well as initials, names or last names of Nazi figures;
11.2. contain a reference to racial or national superiority, as well as promote discrimination in any form;

Full clan names and tags, as well as mottoes and clan descriptions indirectly related to prohibited ones, are also not allowed.
Any full clan names or tags, as well as mottoes and clan descriptions violating these rules must be changed and made to comply with the rules, otherwise the clan can be disbanded, especially if there are complaints from concerned parties or copyright holders. In particularly obvious and serious situations, the clan may be disbanded and access to the Game for its members’ accounts may be permanently blocked as a restrictive measure. Wargaming will determine how serious the violation is. In such cases, game funds spent on setting up full or abbreviated clan names (tags), mottoes or descriptions that violate the Rules will not be refunded.
Wargaming is not liable for the creation of similar clan tags and clan names. No administrative action will be taken toward such clans.
12. Wargaming is fully responsible for deciding whether there is a violation of the Clan Rules and the seriousness of the violation in each specific case. Wargaming has the right but is not obliged to give the clan violating the Rules up to 24 hours to remedy the violation.
13. Wargaming will not consider complaints related to conflicts between clans. Clan commanders, their deputies and appointed representatives are responsible for resolving conflicts. The clan commander confirms that clan members have the relevant authority by appointing them to the position of officer or other clan positions. By joining a clan, regular members accept the clan’s internal rules.
14. Any violation of the Clan Rules automatically entails the violation of the License Agreement and other Wargaming rules and shall provide grounds for sanctions against the clan creator, commander or other person having the authority to manage the clan.
15. In the event that several clan players commit repeated violations of the Clan Rules, the Game Rules or the License Agreement, Wargaming shall have the right to disband such clan without any indemnification to the clan and individual players.
