Grab some friends who play SWBFII, and ask them if they're interested in starting a clan.

It is useful to make a website in order to give your clan a 'presence' - so people can look at it and compare it to others to see why it is better before joining. Free hosts...generally don't work...if you are serious about getting a big clan. If there's only 10 people then an advert-ridden free host will do.

You could start forums but...believe me, they will die out if you start them too early. Once you get 15+ members, consider it, but keep it small.

Obviously, think of a clan name. E.g. Freakish Weirdos. Then derive from this a clan tag. For example, [FW]

Spread the word by signing up to the Clan Yellow Pages and others, and advertise in the Shameless or the 'Recruit for your clan' forum under General Gaming.

Also host recruiting servers in battlefront 2 whenever possible, especially when you have only a few members. Do not recruit people first time they join the server, ask them to join again the next day, or sign up to your forums if you have any. this way you know they actually want to join, and will stay active in your clan. also allying with other clans of a similar size member wise can be helpful - as it provides a source of people to play friendly games against, and most people prefer playing against other people rather than AI.

Very important is the website. If you go to a website of a clan you're interested in and you see it's a complete mess you won't join it. If you see a clan with a very advanced site with downloads player of the week, gallery, tips and hints etc. etc. people are more eager to join.

You'll have to be a strong leader too. You need to run the whole place and see if the members and even admins stick to the rules, decided by the clan/admin. Skills are not important in the beginning, don't pick the best players but play for fun first. Try to get as many people as you can who enjoy playing the game, regardless of skill. Your clan must be a fun place.

I've been in several clans for several games and when the atmosphere is crap, you're wasting time.

Finally a clan needs a server to play on with their clanmates. A homeserver is enough, as long as you can play on it with the clanmates. An expensive 24/7 server isn't really needed in the beginning. When you have a lot of clanmates and visitors you can think of getting one, some might even support you, financial.
