  • Random musing: Clans

    Ok, I think the general consensus is that no one is going to allow 'dual-membership' for guild members. Most obvious reason being is that the guilds like to keep their specific secrets to themselves.

    How would you feel about allowing members to join a 'clan' and still stay within your guild? Let me define. Guilds are groups of players that exist for the purposes of participating in matches and comparing strategy. A 'clan' would exist more for reasons other than strategy. Their member lists would be open to the public, and any matches that they may participate in would be purely exibitionary.

    Suggestions for different clans:

    Mapping clan: An advanced form of the mapping forum. Mappers would share their mapping skills with other members, and work to create tutorials and improve aspects of the game.

    (your area here) clan: This would be for members who live in a specific region. Perhaps they get together to play Thievery on a LAN once in a while, or just go out to have fun.

    Newbie clan: A clan of experienced players who volunteer their time to teach others on their style of play, or to just show newbies the basics of the game.

    Again, they don't exisit to share guild secrets or compete, but rather for another purpose altogether. But with the current mood, I am not sure if they would be accepted or not, which is why I am bringing it up. Would clans, as per my definition, be acceptable?

    I'm getting the idea that Kiech is a fan of formal structure....

      Maybe. I just worry that there are too many rules about things we CAN'T do, and not enough things that we CAN do without fear of repercussion. By strict interpretation of the new 'no dual-membership' rules, you aren't allowed to form an official 'clan' of people that live nearby you without being ridiculed and kicked out of your guild.

        I don't see a reason to structure this, it happens anyways.
        Nearly all men can stand adversity -- if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.

          I didn't say anything about structuring it. I said 'what if it happens'. By your guildrules, they would have to be kicked out for being in two groups.

            I doubt it will. If it does, I'll worry about it then. I don't think it'll be an issue.

              LOL is it really that hard to say: "I would have no problems with a 'clan' by your definition."

                It's already happened. Cythe is a member of TUT and CTG. TUT, however, isn't a competitive team. Even though CTG is going to match TUT (excuse me, I meant kick their asses ), it's still not a problem on our end, because TUT is not a team in the same sense as CTG is a team.

                I imagine that ToB has (had?) a similar take on it for DQ.

                  Exactly. I am wondering though, if anyone else can tell the difference.

                    I can certainly see the difference. But your "clans" definition is quite broad. Since it's not a common thing at the moment, it's being dealt with on a case by case basis. I doubt it will ever become a major issue.

                      I can live with a little give in take. Obviously you don't want a 'troublemakers' clan out there. As long as there is room to breathe.

                          LOL! I mean the kind of troublemakers that will give DarkBill a heartattack before he hits 25.
