Since most of you will ask the question before you read this, why did I write all this crap? I was bored. -------------------- Start Im just trying to get a feel for this game right now, on a social level so Im looking to get some oppinions from all of you gamers out there on what you think when you play the game, and how you play it... Or how you communicate with others. Me, personally I cant connect with anyone on BF42 period. While I use Teamspeak on a daily basis (between old clanners from everything), connecting with players on a BF42 server is rather, frustrating to say the least. How so? Well, WOLF has its TeamSpank server, I looked inside of it once or twice and found it rather confusing to know where I should place myself, as the website stated it was empty. Didnt bother never more with that, rather attached myself to my music during gameplay. So that destroyed any verbal communications I could have achieved. If you look back to HL, it had a built in mic support, I loved that feature, it is the only reason I actually purchased a microphone... To play CS/DoD and (if you believe it) command pubbies around. There I found, that while some people listened to what I told them what to do, others were enraged. They were generally the players who owned a microphone but when it came to their own scores, pulling a 2:1 was neer impossible for them fools. :nodding: I still remember the days of DoD Avalanche, and telling people to move through the church with me and how to and when to move past what to aviod MG fire, or assult when and were, claim knife kills, etc. I guess I figured out pretty early that I needed a clan... But I didnt really want one. Looking back at it now, my clanning days began back in '99 or '00. I know that the first clan I joined was... SCC (Or StarCraft Confederacy), a clan leaded by this kid named Duke, who I still talk to for favors and such. The clan died, twice, got left with like 4 people, got rebuilt... Well its still fucking alive. Believe it or not thats incredible, I was 14 when I got there, Duke was 13, and now were both fuking 18... Except I left after a year. Than followed more clans in StarCraft... There was DL, something else, SF.. SF was Stealth Force. I made a friend in DL, Criminal(DL) and well we got into SF. I posted long posts about what the fuck was wrong, got flamed like I do here, well... I didnt change. :lol: Long story short, the creator of SF, Spider, got his website fucked up by Criminal, he got banned (Criminal), Spider left, sold the clan to someone else, I stayed (dont know why), later made a new friend called Psybadek, left, and made my own little hell hole with Psybadek called: *Drumroll* eXposure By that time I went through so many fucking names I couldnt count... I believe when I made eXposure it was '02 summer. My names were: Pro0f --> Pinkus ---> Overkill ---> SnObaLL ---> Cyanide... When I got the name Cyanide I made eXposure. (Im not counting the names I had for Diablo2, as those accounts had mules, some chars, and well... I never clanned on Diablo2.) And well, eXposure was a hit... We made 120 memebers, were active, and we made our own team for ... That SC league. I managed... Me.. Myself... to recurit a man who was in the top 100 best player in Star Craft! Well what really happened was I recruited 3 people, all so fucking good they tought me and than some, and they brought in these super l33t people. That was about 4 months in... But for every good player I recruited, we got about 10 new morons. In the middle of it all, I joined a clan called [iA], for Counter Strike. There I made 2 more friends who I still bitch and moan too, and we still play. I got good in CS, [iA] died after like 2 months, I got back to buisness in StarCraft again, it was about 6 months in by now, lasted 2 more before I left, Psybadek left with me, and it was over. The leet players quit when I quit, the newbies tried to buy the rights to our website but Psy didnt sell out and well it was gone. Tired of everything out there, I began experimenting... With MOD's. This was late, late, late 02' if Im correct. Well, I knew DoD ever since I knew CS. But I never liked WW2, the square shape of the MG42 that I now love bothered me a lot... and the MG34, while cooler looking, looked like an elongated penis. I didnt know shit about WW2 to say the least... Anywhoo, as I got better I didnt get back into clans for a long time. Sick of all the bullshit I put up with eXposure (and the only reason why I cant tolerate a lot of people) I spent days on the DoD forums, learning more and more, about infantry (kinda why Im a driver now, DoD had it all once, than it went to hell.. I bought BF42 when it went to hell)... As more time passed, and I bitched on my Mic more and more to the pubbies, got invited to Cal-I clans and rejected offers (STUPID STUPID STUPID), I finally decided to settle on a happy medium. I browsed through the DoD forums to find a clan and got into 2: Canadian Club and American Allies, I shit you not, those are real clans. I got out of CC when it wasnt all Canadian to say the least, and sat my ass down with the Allies. Stayed for 2 months, had fun... Or less, or more. Cant remember. But do remember the fun times I had playing Allies on Anzio with those people. There, I finally was introduced to TeamSpeak. By that time I had so much more alliases that I was shitting them out every day... Lets see here: [email="P0st@L"]P0st@L[/email] ---> Skitzo ---> [email="P0st@L"]P0st@L[/email] Je$u$ ---> What Would Jesus Do? ---> Fallschrijager ---> SupaUgly... And to make it more interesting when I got killed by someone I added a "SSJ1" or a "USSJ2" (like from DBZ when they go Super Sayian) and started killing people like that... You wouldnt believe how many people that pisses off when your scoring 15-1 on DoD Avalanche with an StG44 on a 16 player server with those "Godlike" sounds and ... AND... Alltalk is on. Say shit like "I GO SUPERSAYIAN", and than kill them again and again and again.. Makes them so frustrated but its so funny... Hear them curse at you. Get all cocky. I busted out so many tears from crying while laughing at that, that... Shit, it was funny. :beer: Anyway, I can be nice, I can be mean, I can be many things... You put 4 or more beers in my system and I will stirke with a fist full of vengence when you cross me, or I'll laugh it up. I smoke a joint and the game just becomes totall nonsence... I start wondering outside calling up my friends to goto a bar or something, only to come home drunk and play this again. So how do you show your emotion on BF42? How do you show gratitude when no ones listening? I cant be writing all day long when Im playing... Its hard enough to talk to some guy named "Evil Rusk" on Adak Island while your wielding a Springfield and trying to aim at the Japs. How does he know your joking around when you say "I'll see you in hell" I guess I could type more smilies, but than I'll get shot in the face. Honestly, I try not to be a nice person when I play public, since when its in public, whats the effort? Theres only three times when people listen: 1. When you get shot. 2. When they got shot. 3. When one of you is TK'ed. Two out of the three they come off pissed. More or so I cant stand incompitence. Truely deeply I cant... Should I show respect to a newbie who gets into my tank and steals it when I start repairing? Drives off and gets it blown up in 5 seconds? Or them stupid assholes who think their pilots, camp anything that spawns a plane, call themselves "Aces", to get swatted like flies when they get in the air. I dont know. Manners are for people who show patience I suppose, and I dont think that goes towards a game like BF42, where the normal thing a person says is: SRY!!! DIDNT MEAN TO TK YOU! Atleast that shows effort, the other 3 quarters dont try to appologise. I guess thats playing with pubbies. Some got it, all of the others dont. While I did start hating clans after eXposure (look up), some of the ones on here were even more bullshit. Theres about 20 clans, I figure. More propobly, unannounced, with a fate of death in a week or two. What I truely hate about them is the lack of competition. Theres none! Theres a leauge for FH, but with 10 clans, well... You aint getting far. On the tip of my tounge I can name three or four worthy ones: 130th Pz 11PzG 5 Column and if the evil foods count, well... Their #1 in my book. I guess the problem the way I see it is realism. Most of these clans use rankings, apply rules, crap like that. The evil foods would be the only clan I can think of that doesnt resemble a division at 5% strength. Every other clan recruits any asshole that decides to walk in... 130th has 60 members, if not more now! Most of them, are morons. Nobody realizes that he who picks and chooses wins. Clans shouldnt be about having the most members... If thats what it was, well hell everyone should join BFE! Play favoritism at its best, but I wont get into that. Between the clans that there are, and other crap... Personally I love being a pubbie at his best, and should there become a clan that has captains and members, accepts people for what they are, is easy going and dedicated, well when that happens I'll jump the horse and ride it to hell and back. All we need are 10000 more FH players now that DC is dead. Someone should stand up... Someone. :lol:

Well, whenI started playing BF I joined with one of the guys whos at the top of the leaderboard on all those stats players EverclearBoy and we formed a "Battlefield Group"....its not a clan, no tags, no practies, no matches.

We simply put were people who liked to play BF and since then we've expanded to anything we want really. We are just a bunch of guys aged 18 to like 50 who find each other on ALL SEEING EYE and use our own TS server to talk to each other. Half the time I forget to talk to my teammates, but I do apologize for accidental TKS from bombing or arty. If some shlub drives over a minefield (like some doof tonight) he deserves it (of course he kept doing it and my score kept dropping and dropping)

Most of the guys we play with play DC, but we pretty much play whatever we want and usually everyone goes with whoever came online first, DC, EOD, GC, FH.

Ive been asked a few times to join various clans, and always say no. I enjoy just playing on pubs with my friends and bitching and moaning about everyone else. I dont mind the clans, but when they get on a power trip it can be a handful.

I dunno if we want all the people from the DCcommunity, and besides, even when DC goes into its final version, there is always DCX which will keep growing.

ok, at this point im just babbeling.

i just read it and i think everyone has some sort of 'story'. I never really tried to start a clan but i have been in a few. My first was in a 506th clan for about 3-4 months with the leader REBIV and i only reached up to corporal. I then joined AMD for BF and stayed there alittle. I lose track after that but i have been in many clans for many games. I also like being a pubbie but sometimes clans can be fun. There are to many morons in clans nowadays so i pretty much gave up.

Driver, it seems that to you "good clan" is synonymous with "elitist clan," the kind I tried to leave behind in CS, DC, and similar games. Skill is desired over, and often in place of, personality and desire to play the game just to have fun. I personally would rather be in a clan full of morons that have fun when they play than a clan full of the best players in existance that shout "OMG I pwned j00 so much!" every time they get a kill...but that's just me, it seems that you feel differently.

The problem for you is that Forgotten Hope and, to an extent, Battlefield 1942 as a whole, doesn't support the "elitist clan" type of gameplay. With equipment capable of killing even the most skilled player effortlessly available to anyone who wants it luck is almost as important as skill in getting a high score. In addition to that open terrain, huge maps, and large amounts of people are much more conducive to clans acting like, in your words, divisions at 5% strength with a complete hierarchy of command. BF1942 may just be the wrong game for the kind of group you're looking for.
