The Commander is a roleplay role similar to other whitelisted roles. He or she is expected to uphold a higher degree of roleplay than is typically familiar to the average player. However, it has very little to do with how successful they are at winning a round. A Commander might do everything right and still lose the game. Commanders are not robusting round-winners. They do the best they can with what they have by utilizing leadership, tactics, and of course, roleplay.
There are explicit rules regarding a Commander's conduct which are officially stated in the Server Rules, Job-Specific Rules section. These rules, along with the Roleplay Guidelines, must be followed or the player risks losing their whitelisted status. There are exceptions, however. Due to the trusted nature of the role, good conduct and exceptional roleplay could lead to an order from Central Command that allows the Commander to bend or even break a rule in some cases.
