Checking out clans ?! Help appreciated :): 1/22/2016 03:24:55

Hi everyone,

i never thought much about getting into a clan. Today someone asked me if i wanna join Vitrix Mortalis. So i started checking some clans. Just got confused. How do i know which clans are active ?

About me: I started April 2015 on my phone and got to lv48 now. I didnt really know how everything worked so i just tried it all. Played lots of Real time games with diplos at first. I didnt realize there was a whole profile with stats and everything. I also just let me get booted often in those 3-5min boot games, when i was occupied or know i lost. About 2 month ago i started checking the pc version and noticed it all. I changed my gaming behaviour, also cause some ppl mentioned my boot rate. But i got into multi day games ffa latetly so these boot rates wont change fast. So my stats in all are crap. I wont start another account, since i dont think i fit to those clans who only stare at some numbers. Some ppl do appreciate my matches and gaming. My stats are different than my actual play now.

What clans i would be interested in: I play diplos,dm in bigger teams or ffa, also 1v1/2v2 tournaments. I would try other options aswell. Just what im into at the moment. So the clan should be more open to everything. I dont like clans which are too big tho. But i dont want to get into something, whats dead after a month.

Would appreciate any suggestions or some info about the world of clans here :)

Anyways hf gaming.

One piece.

AOE has minimum entry requirement rules - all you have to do is have played at least 10 games (check) and have less than a 60% boot rate (check...but barely haha). AOE focuses on diplomacy, role play, and FFAs. We are also active in the RP Clan League and we try to run multiple tournaments and games with other clans (such as CORP, Wolves, etc). We would be happy to include you in our clan. Let me know if you want an invite.

CORP seems only for RP ? How many players in a clan is considered average/normal ? Thanks for replies. I ll check every mentioned clan. And thanks for that link aswell !

CORP is not only for RP. They've got a substantial number of strategic players and are getting better (although they're not on the same level as clans like MASTER, French, Illuminati, Apex, etc., in terms of having elite players); Fizz Jong-un just doesn't let clans change their names because apparently one unique identifier isn't enough.

CORP just does everything, like a few other clans.

Not really; most of them are just well-maintained. The clans with a lot of inactives just tend to have shit leadership or a rather casual playerbase trapped in a cycle of mediocrity.

You could just check out the top rankings on ladders in order to figure out which clans have the most skilled players (or the Clan League).

Ofc, unless you're at their level of skill, you probably won't get immediate benefits from joining their clan- in which case your best bet is a reasonably skilled clan with very high activity where you can learn. And they have to be willing to accept you- that narrows things down.

Your profile doesn't make any skill evident so unless you could pull off some solid gameplay in a 1v1, you're not going to make it into clans like M'Hunters/Illuminati/etc. and have to go for less restrictive options. Most of these clans (The Lost Wolves, Falcons, AOE) are cesspools that only trap you into further mediocrity, so you're left with things like {TJC} (pretty active, pretty good players- not the best, though- I think their peak is smileyleg who's a few steps better than me- I'm a rather mediocre player), Fizzer Appreciation Group (not sure about their internal activity; they have great players like Krzychu but they also don't seem to be that much more than a gimmick), AWF, HAWKS, etc. Within that, you probably want to narrow down by activity (so you can actually play games and hopefully learn) and player aptitude (so you don't play a bunch of games with mediocre players and have your skill growth level off until you find a different group).

CORP seems like the only real option here- although I'm obviously biased (I have history with them); their players aren't the best (I think their peak is Ink Splatoon, Chancho, and Mr. Legi- which are all really good players but not elite contenders) and below that they have a large good/mediocre layer that's also pretty active. I don't think you can get a better deal- although ideally you'd end up with a clan that's got good players willing to teach you a bunch (like how you get smarter by hanging around with smart people, basically), I don't really see how that's an option given that the best players tend to be in elite/restrictive clans.

Knyte also tends to be highly "vitriolic". Impolite bordering on offensive. AOE's surprising strength in the RP clan league (even though many of our players were booted) should be an indication that his value judgement isn't completely unbiased.

Look at all the clan pages and then go where you'll feel most comfortable. That's a lot to it. Clans are supposed to be fun :P

If you were to join CORP
We have 2 sectors within.
one for strategic
one for diplo
As for you
you will be able to join our diplo sector
and not the statsgic sector
because our strategic sector has a tough entry
but joining the diplo is not bad at all
it helps a lot and if you are able to prove good results you will be able to go forth our strategic sector

@knyte: much info thanks. I get your point. I also get if ppl get offended by some of that. Ofc i would like to improve, but since its not my first priority in RL, i can´t follow up the pros here.

@JaiBharat909: ofc fun should be no 1. I don´t want it to be way too serious.

@prabster realm: interesting with the 2 sectors !

lel I didn't read your initial post carefully and thought you were looking for a strat clan b/c of what you said about CORP

In that case, AThE, Falcons, Wolves, etc. would be perfect for you.

Hello, One Piece!

If you are looking for a clan that is not too large and does just about anything, I would recommend to you my own clan- the FCC. We do not recruit people based on how good they are, but rather how well they represent the five principles that we stand for: strength, honor, unity, liberty, and growth. In addition, our clan does not have a specific genre, as in strategy or Roleplay, but rather is structured around these principles instead. We do anything that our clan members want to- Diplomacy, FFA, competative 1v1- you name it. I took this clan back from the grave, and now it hosts a colorful bunch of closely-knit people who are dedicated to improving themselves as warlighters, whether that be the game, mapmaking, programming, or something different entirely. Although it is not quite where I envision it to be, it grows closer to being a successful clan every day.

If you are interested, please feel free to mail me!

My recommendation would probably be to CORP or Vitrix. AWF is good too, but they don't diplo, so if you wanted to diplo with your clan, you're back to Vitrix or CORP.

I'll amend this. FCC would probably be a good home as well.

If you're looking for a good mix of Roleplay and Strategy (more roleplay than strategy, at that) -> CORP does it pretty damn well. On the roleplay side, their templates are the best out there if you ask me. On the strategic side, they are pretty inclusive.

If you're looking for lots of activity and usage of clan forums with focus on RP -> Wolves, though you'd basically be expecting mostly diplomacy-only and several tournaments at our current state. FFAs are a bit rare. Still, games pop up quite often and our forums are more active than some of the public ones.

If you're looking for frequent 1v1 and 2v2 tournaments -> AOE has a lot of tournament invites, but not many FFAs and borderline OK activity for diplos.

If you're looking solely for Roleplay -> Then you'd have to have a nice chat with some leaders out there to see which fits you best + accepts the stats. To name a few, Vitrix, USSr, {rp}, W.U., and such.

If you're looking solely for Strategic -> You'll have a lot of problem with these crummy stats there since strategy clans are mostly rather exclusive. Judging by the description and your stats, though, this likely isn't your goal.

If you're into stretching your name as big as possible -> The Juggernauts are 10/10 at that. They are rather sandbox-ish - good on both strat and RP and tends to have several innovative games too.

If you want to see a clan that is pretty much just starting out and watch it grow -> The Falcons are changing quickly with SirSalty now, and there are several new clans out there - the frenchy napoleonic thingy I never remember the name, Grande Armee I think, and the islamic-themed one that some quite well-known Real-Time diplomacy players started, Bakkah-Mecca.

thanks for all the posts !

@Zephyrum: thanks, i just saw wolves got a steam community. Thats a good idea, hopefully u get more ppl to join there. anyone playing dota 2 ? :D

@The Conservative: no self esteem ? xP

CORP needs <20% boot rate ? Also cant i be in both dojos ? I have to pick btw diplo and strat ?

How many games are created in all your clans ? Since i ve never been in a clan...I think i ll kinda freak out, if i get spammed with request. On the other hand one game a month is not worth to join a clan.

I definately prefer clans with a good mix of diplos and dms.

Vitrix mortalis seems to have to many less active players i think. I heard something about clans get points or something for each players lv ? Is it really that important, that you let inactives stay in a clan ?

I got much info from everyone here. Gonna think about it. I dont like switching clans too much...

Despite what Knyte says The Royal Falcons are improving massively on all factors. With inactives booted, forum activity going up and the image of the clan being reformed. We have a shitty past, but the future is what we look forward to. I would be happy to have you in our clan.

You can pick one of the two and still do both. There's some strategic players in Hyaku-men who also compete for CORP in Clan League.

It's nowhere near overwhelming. You can be like me and milk clans for ~20-30 continuously running games, or you can just play the occasional diplo and tournament.

Is it really that important, that you let inactives stay in a clan ?


Not really, although it does clutter things up quite badly; the # of active players is far more important than % inactivity/activity.

Most clans aren't much different. They just do a better job covering it up.
