'-=[Ranek=-;3915928']no what he means is that its not an arguement, your idea of a clan differs from his, you see a clan as a group of players who want to be the best he see's it as a group of players who want to do that OR a group of players who are looking to make a game more enjoyable.

Yeah... I wrote two large paragraphs full of sarcasm about this portion of your post, but I decided I'd be easy(er) on you. So, here we go:

OMG! STOP THE PRESS! My views differ from his? Thank you for pointing this out. I would be lost in this world without people like you. Thank God he sends his trusted angels down from heaven to help misguided folks such as myself.

(Oh, yeah, this is the internet, so there's no way anybody could possibly tell that was sarcasm, so here are a few of these :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

and then some of these iconroflxl9.gificonroflxl9.gificonroflxl9.gif)

But, to be serious: Yeah, dude, Giz and I already ended our argument. We both already knew the outcome. When differing opinions clash, there's no win.

Casual Clans are there so you can relax in a game, talk to people and have a laugh. At the moment im in a semi casual clan, we do take things seriously and make alliances with other clans and compete with them but some members don't. But we all are happy and talk and help each other, everyone knows everyone basically.

okay you just critized your self by saying 'there's no win.' due to the fact before you said:

I guess you decided I won the argument

so why don't you go shove your sarcasm up your arse? yes? All i was doing was explaining to you why it wasn't an argument, yet no you have to come back and insult me, well go you.

I was joking around about the "I won the argument" part. Giz knew this. Obviously, you didn't.

Don't be trying to restart an argument with, in my opnion, a pretty damn obvious post. You were just asking for Flotte sarcasm.

DarkstuareZ;3915675Great way for people with no real social life to have one.

Why? I don't understand your point. I have lot of friends and a fun social life and I'm leader of a gaming clan. One doesn't stop the other.

It all depends on what "a life" really means. To some people, having a life is partying, hanging out with friends all the time, and doing "cool" things. Other people who quote "don't have a life" may actually have a life, but that lifestyle differs from the former type of people.

That may or may not make sense depending on which side of the river you're on.

I didn't say that people who join clans don't have a life outside of video games, but for a majority, it's likely the case. Nor am I saying it's a bad thing. If being in a clan can make someone happy, I'm all for it. I've been in numerous clans(not for over a year now), but it was for the matches, I was into cs and dod. But I realized that I wasn't down for the dedication they required, not to mention all of my other growing responsibilities in the real world..

What I meant was, it's a great way for people that don't have the sort of social acceptance to achieve it from others who are in the same boat.

I don't quite understand where all these concepts of a Clan bringing all this baggage of commitment and responsibility comes into play.

MMO's have guilds, albeit if you look at World of Warcraft as an example.. be careful. There are;

  • Raiding Guilds; these guys have a fully developed schedule where everyone has a position and job within the group. They are required to be online at specific times often for several hours at a time.
  • Casual Guilds; this lot are here for fun and enjoyment. Often just there to muck about with a few people, maybe complete a few quests and help each other out. No sense of commitment but still a sense of community.It isn't my intention to re-open your argument Aero or Giz, just state my opinion. I think there can be both, just various from guild to guild.

As far as I see if Clans develop that sense of community and respect amongst its members, they have achieved their purpose. They are often useful for groups of people with small things in common to band together and work together online. Once again, this can vary depending on what the clan's focus is.
