(I'm not too certain if it belongs in clans because it's a rant about clans... I'll take a risk by placing it here and getting it moved if it's not in the right topic) I have a bunch of feelings about clans. Both good and bad. But reading positive comments isn't entertaining! That's why we have reality TV :p Since this IS the rants section I think I'll just rant and say good things if I get flamed. Oh and no I won't name any clans so you're all safe for now... Anyways... Onto the rant ! This part isn't only with the JK series but with basicly any gaming series that includes a multiplayer game. Have you ever looked at clan names ? Don't they all sound so corny and whatnot ? They're often in the same style. Let's play a game shall we ? [COLOR=black]THE CLAN NAME CREATOR !!! OMG !:eek:[/COLOR] [COLOR=black]Me: Yes, what is it ?[/COLOR] [A]-[b]-[C]-[D] A:Write an adjective (ex:Secret) B:Write another (ex:Dark) C:Write the name of a faction (ex:Sith) D:Write the name of a group (ex:Order) In general names look like that or worse... I dunno but can't you just come up with decent names ??? (this affects a LARGE majority of clans not all just a LARGE majority (as in 0.01 % of clans have decent names). [COLOR=black]I'm drowning in clan skins ... NOOOO !!![/COLOR] *insert mobs of clans with corny names here all holding signs saying :plzdie:* I'll associate things I don't like about clans to something else... Clan skins = A bunch of bad reborn,jawa and *gasps* rosh skins :aug: Clan maps = An author's first map with missing textures that make 60% of the map I'm just wondering why you're submitting something that we're not going to play with. Jedi's Home is a *very* rare case. [COLOR=black]The clan tags hurt my eyes !!![/COLOR] [COLOR=black]Here's the common scenario...[/COLOR] [COLOR=black]This is rare !!! A good looking clan skin !!![/COLOR] -Downloads- -Goes ingame- Aaghhh !!! The skin looks fine from one side but in 3rd person where you see the back... -vomits- Clan tags plastered everywhere !!! Same thing with maps. That's just a personnal opinion, it doesn't annoy me personnaly, it just makes me wonder what our community is made of (9 year old kids anyone ?). I'm not trying to tell you how to run a clan just pointing out some facts. I don't really care what you do with your clan as long as it's not "undesired" by others. [COLOR=black]W[/COLOR][COLOR=black]hat I stated above was an exception.[/COLOR] [COLOR=black]What the heck are you guys doing here ???[/COLOR] [COLOR=black]Supreme Emperor of the Super Secret Shinobi Jedi Brotherhood of Peacebringers: Surrender earthling, the x_X{ssSJbp}X_x come to conquer you ![/COLOR] [COLOR=black]Me: Your name sucks ...[/COLOR] Clan member1: How dare you insult the superior brotherhood ? Me:-chuckles- Clan Member 2: You dare mock us... KILL HIM !!! Clan member 1: -jumps on me- Me: Ok ! -kills enemy in mid air- [COLOR=black]Guy with a long name : We shall come back ! In bigger numbers !!! Fool ![/COLOR] I'm not saying all clans are brainless enough to do this but I can't count the ammount of times it happened to me. (this goes to everybody not just clans) [COLOR=black]END of rant (part 1)[/COLOR] These were just common examples. If you own a clan named the Super Secret Jedi Brotherhood of Peacebringers well... [COLOR=black]There are a few clans I actualy respect, I don't have their permissions to post them so I won't. I actualy prefer roleplaying to most things but this clan is the best of all in my book (not a roleplaying clan though)[/COLOR] -NEWBIE SKINNER

Not meaning any harsh offense, as I agree with a GREAT DEAL of what you've said.... But really, about clan names. That really is the accepted generic format, I mean, the whole reason some people make clans, is because there is a GROUP of people, with similar IDEALS. So you can really see how they got that format, they wanted to name themselves apart from everyone else, but also wanted to describe an interest or trait. :) There are some clans though, that are named very differently, and may be very short. Some clans might be named ENTIRELY differently, like how the one I'm in, [FIS] Fire and Ice Squad. Was named based on the names of the founders.

For the most part, I agree with you. :cya:

Thanks, your opinions are appreciated. For anyone else, this thread wasn't made to insult any clans. Clans are very important and without them the game would've been deserted a long time ago. Not suggesting I've just been flammed or whatever. My only intent was to make a humorous view on what clans are these days.

Well pretty much everything you mentioned isn't quite true with all clans. I agree some clans are like you described, mostly new clans... but a large group of clans aren't as you described at all :P

I don't really see it as a problem though :)

Thanks NewbieSkinner for this humorous view that expresses my innermost thoughts... THE CLAN NAME CREATOR - LOL!!! Maps - desaster (overlapping brushes, z-fighting, ignorance of any VIS rule, etc...). Skins - omg, try paper and pencil first, it's called art! Sure there are clans that are not like this but even if most have some members in matching to this pattern, so... And for u clan peoples: sometimes things are better seen when watched from outside. Example: ur a guest on a clan server for a long time and get along with these guys (maybe also being invited). New guest coming in playing Mr. NiceGuy, apply after a while. But after being accepted he became cockie, treats guest like crap (im in, u not!?) but still buttlicking his clan mates... yeah, that's the reason why u find me on some clan servers not any more that often (where I hung around for 1-2 years!!!). Think about! I saw this happen too often!

As I stated above it's true with a certain majority of clans not all of them.
