I'm not new to gaming but I am new to team based online gaming.I've been reading through quite a few forums and a common theme seems to be how much public servers suck, because many of the players could care less about playing as a team, and just run around doing their own thing.How does one go about finding a"private" server or joining a clan?I'm simply looking to get the most out of this type of game.Thanks.

Well its not so much finding a "private" server that would help, you just have to be lucky... As far as joining a clan, you can look for clans hiring at this forum, or you can look at our lick of clan sites over at our Links section:assimilate:

Speaking of public servers and the level of idiocy found there on occasion, here is a funny story you might enjoy from my gaming excerpts just last night.

I was playing on BattleAxe as an Ally and had stolen an Axis plane and was wreaking havoc on the enemy. Suddenly I'm shot down by one of my own teammates. It made me mad, but I blew it off thinking that the dude probably wasn't experienced enough to realize that I was a teammate in an enemy aircraft.

I quickly respawn close to our airfield and believe it or not, there is actually a plane with no one waiting to get in it, just waiting all by it's lonesome for me to take it for a spin (hard to believe,I know). So I excitedly run over when all of a sudden I see this shell coming straight at me from one of our own mobile artillery units and it blows me and the plane all to hell. What do you know, It's the same punk that had just killed me previously. Grrrrrrr!!! So now I'm pissed. Once, ok, but twice (especially when it was obvious I was a teammate this time), I ain't havin' it! Time to have some fun with this cat.

I respawn in our main camp and run over to where I saw his lame butt last and I sneak up behind him as he is still at the top of the hill in the artillery unit by himself. He enters the drivers seat and re-situates the vehicle to get a good shot (probably at another hapless teammate), and as soon as he switches to the gunners seat, I jump in and push the gas, trying to send the entire thing over the edge of the cliff with him in it. Well, as I dive out, the thing doesn't quite go over, but sends his shot awry and leaves him bobbing perilously on the edge. Oblivious to what just happened, he re-enters the drivers seat, re-situates the unit again, and jumps back into the gunners seat to continue on his urgent mission to help us lose the game (hehe). When he does, I quickly re-assert myself as the driver and this time I succeed in sending the entire vehicle over the hill with him in it. As I watch it roll down the hill I just laugh uncontrollably. So hopefully he's realized the error of his ways, right?

Well, he ejects and immediately starts looking around to see who the culprit was. He sees me and comes after me, guns blazing. I try to just run away and show that I'm not interested in a gunfight at the TK coral. But he won't give up and chases me into a building, finger still on the trigger. I finally give up trying to be nice and in self defense, I turn and put about 10 bullets in his torso and head. What a clown.

After all that, can you believe he had the nerve to start repeatedly typing that I'm a TK'er, over and over?

My lord, the gall of some of these idiots. The level of intelligence displayed in this game sometimes amazes me.

I have been a long-time online gamer, but have never joined a clan. Don't really even know how to go about it or what all it entails. I'm good enough now that I consistently receive medals around 50% of the time on any given server and at worse, never drop below the middle of the list, so I consider myself pretty good and think I could be beneficial to someone. I too would like more info on what is required to join a clan. I need some intelligent gamers around me. :) I think I'll do some clan research today and see if it's for me. Anyone recruiting?
