im just seeing what people usually do with clans on games like CoD, Red Orchestra, FH, etc. I prefer to join a realistic clan like an actually division from the war with ranks, assigned weapons, a chain of command, and that kind of stuff After doing the poll and saying what you picked, if you were in a tactical realism clan say what game/s it was in and what the clan/s was called In CoD2 i was in the 12.SS Hitlerjugend and then when Red Orchestra came out we decided to make that our main game to play on. Since RO was an Eastern Front game, we changed our clan to the 11.SS Nordland Division. I played so much RO that i just got bored of it and i decided to leave the clan but i had a lot of great times. Im thinking about joining another realistic clan in RO though
I'd rather be in a clan that gets along and has a clue what's going on. Also can talk some decent shit.
If the guys in the clan work together and get the job done, that's fine for me, no chain of command or class restriction or shit like that.
Oh and Koehler, in the US it might be cool to pretend you're an SS guy, hitlerjugend, foreign volunteer and such, but in the countries were the war was actually fought, it's not very appreciated.
In my opinion an ideal clan has 2-4 leaders (including wararrangers and "co-leaders"), plays both axis and allies (taken as granted in most of games :lookaround:) and players are at least bit dedicated to the game and clan.
When I still was active in the BF1942 scene, I didn't see one succesful clan that had ranks, medals "or shit like that". Those simply don't belong in 8-12 player/side matches. In bigger matches it comes quite natural to have clear command relations and such, but in clan games... what a waste of time :o
If you can't find what you're looking for, start one.
Why would anyone with half a clue wana glorify the SS? Its NOT cool in the U.S. contrary to what the few idiots you can occasionaly see on the T.V. say, plastered there by our worthless media. Ever notice all the guys they show aint exactly the ones you would want on the T.V. as your front man? Joined a clan because there aint much more fun to be had in the gaming world than clan V clan matches. Its nice to have a few laughs on comunications like when half your teamies are saying "Damnit they stole the sherman at the northeast flag & he is on the flag." someone asks "Was it the 105 or just a nila sherman?" & you get to reply "Dont matter." they are like "Huhh? What? Whys dat?" Then your satchels start to go off.:smokin:
Ranks? In my opinion the ranking system inside a clan is kinda counter productive. EVERYONE should be willing & able to do what it takes to win the map rather than argue about who has what rank & what you can & cant do because of it. Ill tell ya what you can do with your 'rank' real quick. Everyone helps plan then everyone helps to win.

yea thats what i was exactly going for, to be "cool"...........wtf?
(time limit expired on the edit) How about i wanted to join a clan like those because i liked using the german small arms and tanks more than the allied stuff. Im not a nazi, not a bad american, i just really like the german equipment from ww2. I wanted to join a clan where i would mostly be using this stuff so obviously i joined a german division clan. People are probably now saying, "yea but you can use that in any clan." True but in our matches we would start off with what we should be on then keep switching till someone won or for the whole match we would stay german like we should while the allied team went with whoever they were. Now about "glorifying" an SS division. Did you ever think the people that set these clans up are like me wanting to mostly use german equipment.
In our tactical-realism community everyone had similiar stuff. there were both allied and german divisions from ww2. Notice one word "REALISM" yea that also counts for being realistic with your clan for example the american 1stID clan. i remember them from CoD2. I didnt want to join some random clan cause most of the players bunnyhop, run and gun, everyone trys to pick the strongest weapons, and all that other noob crap. Playing realistic made the game so much better Having the ranks and assigned weapons was great and another part of being in a tactical-realism clan. i'll use my old CoD2 clan as an example for this. It was good because when you first joined you were a recruit, a staffle or something with the kar98k. To get to a new rank, shutze (private), it took time and performance but you were able to get really good in this time with your rifle and it actually did help. Once at shutze you were able to apply for a new weapon which was the G43. You guys can obviously fill out the rest with going up the rank structure and stuff.
Is there anything else i need to answer or correct?
If a clan finds me and asks me to join (which of course never happens :D) and the clan's got a good bond and everyone is friendly and stuff... I don't care about the skill of a clan.
yea it sucks when there are a-hole members in your clan but usually you meet a lot of cool people
