Lately the following trend is all I see for clan formation - A few good players decide they want to start a clan, though they put no real thought toward it besides merely advertising, and rules of membership( such as a specific number of wins, etc ). I am wondering if there are any well organized clans, that act outside of the norm I have witnessed. For instance, taking on newer players and teaching them the ways of online play, so as to better the clan while also helping players who feel overwhelmed by the skill of most online players. The clans I have seen act as though it is a blasphemy to take on new players, as they almost immediately want to jump into ladder games, and pissing contests with other clans. In my opinion it seems a great player would take time out of his gameplay to aid newer players, and also raise a deadly clan from a group no one wanted. Weekly training exercises including learning the maps, and hotkeys, etc could take place in custom games so as not to effect the new players win/loss ratios. By doing this, when they were ready to be let loose on b.net they would garner more wins for their records over losses, improving the clans status as they rose in wins against the new players the game automatically matches them with( who have not had the benefit of a great clan's training ). I would do this myself, if I considered myself a great player( in skill ). Though with my limited knowledge of online play, I could do with some of the training as well.

Well, what do you expect when 75% of online players are pre-pubecent teens whos only way to feel any power over other people is to play online games?

And I find it flattering that you would think of a great player as one who helps new players and trains others. I do those sort of things usually out of pity for those I beat soundly in bnet games, even though skillwise I am no "great player".

Actually for my clan (THoR on northrend) we accept persons more on personality than game skill. At the moment we have an over level 10 solo requirement but if someone comes and he's a good guy(or girl) and active we'll accept and train him/her. We did that in AoT and we got some good members like that. I know how it gets annoying looking for a clan when ur not that good but u want to get better.
