Can you say Clan?

So as an experienced or new player there is always the problem of who you’re gonna play with. And with this comes what type of Clan you want to join. 

So for those of us who are casual players the best sort of clan is made up of those friends you play with a lot and those who barely ever come online. Usually it’s something with the best and meanest name on the net and really gives you a good laugh and unifies you as a group. Hopefully it is run by one of your friends and you know what is expected or rather what isn’t expected of you. Just remember if you want a group like this it does involve work but is well worth the effort from and Admin POV (Point-of-view)

The second type of the clan is for those of us who are competitive. Who want to be the Kings (and possibly Queens) of Ladders. Who want to laugh in the face of our opponents while a team mate shoots them in the head. Bloodlust, desire. If you’ve got yourself a good captain and are dedicated enough it can be an enjoyable experience. But you just have to be careful about how involved you want to be because these types of clans are like another Job.

The third type of Clan, the one which almost everyone has one of is Supporter Clans. From the funny of the Heavy Sandvich Eating Committee to the activist of Stop the Great Firewall of Australia, they all have the same intention in mind. Mass members, high impact, to get their message across. Usually something that you will occasionally do something for or be part of for the sake of being part of.

Now the fourth type of Clan and possibly the most scary yet fun is for those stuck between the first two types. It could be the admin wants to take what he believes (and could possibly be) the most epic team in the world and show them off to the world. Who wants to be part of the big ladders. But the members didn’t join for that. The other subdivision here is for those who portray themselves as the casual gaming clan but there are a lot of strings attached, be here at a certain time, wear the clan tag, be on this Vent channel and the end of the sentence is usually or else.

With these groups if the admin can take himself seriously enough to challenge other clans but have the humility to not take it seriously it is a very enjoyable experience all around. Getting caught up is the difficult part.

Found yourself in a clan that isn’t quite so casual? Talk to me, come play with my bunch, if your happy, easy going and can laugh at yourself add Whit3Crow to steam and we can talk. No one deserves to have their own clan bent back on them.

So if you are looking at joining a clan, take the time. Play a lot with them; don’t join until you know what there about. If you’re forming a clan have the initial goal in mind and stick to it. If you form a casual clan and want to go pro my advice is form a Pro clan and then add members to that.

There is a clan to suit everybody so do the digging

My clan ran there second ever scrim today. We smashed them. As a team we came together beautifuly, giving out advice, watching eachothers backs. We as a low level clan beat a regular scrim team. I’m extactic.

So what I’m tryin to say in this peice is teamwork. All that there is no I in team, its true. You can see it happen a million times in front of your own eyes, but the apprciation comes when it happens for you. Want this appreciation. Setup a server with wavespawn time, you’ll become a lot more careful with your lives and your medic will get a real workout. This is from a Team Fortress 2 perspective of course. 

Sharing, who doesn’t love it? Got something you want me to publish on here for the wider audience? Send it to my email that is located on the “About” page.

I need some godarn help!


I need some ideas. Every day before I sit down and write I think what would either be relevant or useful to a reader? So usually I pick topics that have been of much discussion between either my friends or through the media. But I want stuff that applies to you. Got a great story you want to be told, feel I’m not addressing some very important issues. Tell me.


Email me at

I want some ideas so this can be something that’s bookmarked, something people want to read ^^

Just ‘cause you’re scared don’t mean you can’t fight

Nick your Name

Basically everyone who uses the web has an alias; it’s a good safety measure to have. But have you ever wondered about that nickname. Where’d you get it? What does it mean? I know there are some good nick name stories out there, some with real depth.

So what makes a good name? This is probably a question thought about by ever gamer when they choose their tags. So I’ve thought up a few things that have lead to my nickname as TweAK.

Name Tag Update Trial

First the name TweAK applies to who my main class is in my most commonly played game, The Scout, Team Fortress 2. For those of us who haven’t had a lot to do with TF2 let alone the scout let me explain. The Scout is what is referred to as the twitch class of the game. He runs at almost double speed, double jumps, low HP and in general is rather “spazzed out.” So generally you would expect Scouts to be a “buzz” spaced out thing of little thinking and more screaming, shotting and running.

But, the name TweAK was earned through nothing to do with TF2. The person who gave me the nickname probably wouldn’t even know what Team Fortress is. The name TweAK was applied because of my nature IRL. The way I do run around and am a little outside the box.

So how does either of those examples lead to a good nick?

Pick something that applies to either yourself IRL, or in game. It will make a lot more sense. If I had named myself heavenly knight and played scout it would look kool but it wouldn’t say I am a scout, this is what I do.

Second when picking a name it doesn’t have to be fancy if you’re looking for some respect. Stuff like Sword of Justice, and Deathlord9000 sure are kool but they are sort of generic for our generation, for the current generation of games. Also use of numbers in your name should be thought about a lot. ‘Cause it could be the thing that makes or breaks a name.

Also names that are insulting such as insults like Yo mum is ma fat bitch, might get some laughs. But yeah if it’s you go and do it =D but remember what your tryin to say.

Finally, names that assign you a job are something to avoid. Things like Scout Killa are something you have to be careful with. If you’re killed by a scout you’ll look like a dick. 

Tweaks you may like to apply to names:

Using symbols does make the name really stand out, and I suggest it if you find a good one, but be careful ’cause if your name isn’t very readable nobody’s going to take much notice of you.

Having variable caps in your name is also something that can be very kool but as before make sure your name is still very readable.

Clan tags are also something that really unify a group of people and can strike fear and annoyance into your opponents, so feel free to add your clans tag to your name.

So in general simple is better for the name, style is kool but you don’t want to over dress and skill is more important than a good name. I would be much more afraid of Pulse if he’d kill me 10 times then of Scout Killa when I’ve killed him 10 times.

So got an interesting nickname? Something that breaks all these rules but is still awesome? I would love to hear them and any back stories that go with ^^.
