Do you prefer clans or gaming communities (or both)?
To me they are pretty much the same thing. Care to elaborate what the main difference is?
Clans center mainly on gaming and stats. Gaming communities focus on almost anything gaming. I prefer the latter.

Clans usually are more close-knit, they join tourneys in some games. I find that gaming communities have more people, and are made for casual gamers who play together but not necissarily as an organized team.
Serio covered the differences pretty well also.
I think they both have their benefits, but I generally prefer gaming communities, mostly because I have more fun when I game casually.
Clans focus on the competition Gaming Communities focus on the fun
I prefer clans, just without that fucking drama which most have.
I prefer clans, they are normally small compared with community's so you can actually know more than 5 people, but I don't like that most clans like that are normally competitive to the teeth and full of 13 year old ragers.

Neither. I preffer to be a freelancer and answer to noone except myself.
By joining a clan, you're giving up part of your freedom without even realising it. Clans require their members to be constantly active on their servers and forums (if they have them, ofcourse). If someone isn't active enough, he/she gets kicked out. I've seen people submitting their applications for a clan membership just after one visit to clan' server and/or forum just to be rejected for never showing up again. Makes you wonder why they even bother filling up the application.
I don't have any personal experiance with gaming communities. However, one of my online friends is a member of such community and speaks very highly of the community itself and it's members, so if I'm forced to choose between a clan or a gaming community, I would choose gaming community since I frown upon any kind of "serious" competition which most clans focus on and preffer casual gaming without any strings attached.

I love gaming communities. You can play with people you know and like without the serious competition that comes with clan matches. There's no pressure to play a certain number of hours, there's little drama and it's generally a great time. Also you're guaranteed to be playing with good players in a gaming community rather than any old pub game.
Back in the day when I was a freshman I was in a Medal of Honor Allied Assault clan. Had fun. But then I got out of gaming more and more and by my senior year I was down to maybe a few hours a week. I was doing 40 hours a week as a freshman.
Clan was fun. Play with people on teamspeak. But I couldnt stand to do that nowadays.
