Hello,

I have noticed an increase in user names with a 3 letters in brackets in front of there names, So im assuming that there are a few clans evolving.

I would like to know as much as I can so that If I can assist in any was to organise tourneys or anything else.

I would like to know the following things, If you could post as much info as possible that would be great, and also any sugestions of what XLink could do for you would be appriciated.

* What is your Clan name?
* How are you identified?
* What games do you play as a clan?
* How many members do you have? (aprox.)
* What Gaming Services do your clan use? (ie. Xlink/XB Connect/Gamespy/Warpipe etc.)
* What are your objectives? (ie. Just have fun/Create a force of unimanigable magnitude)
* Do you have a Clan website? (if you do please provide a URL)
* Do you have rival Clan(s)?
* When you recruit new members is it based more on skill or personality?
* If anyone wants to become a member of your clan how should they go about it?

plus anything else I may find useful.
please only answer the questions that you want to answer.

Many thanks

Taz

Sup taz,

Yeah - interest is picking up with the clans - as Kai will offer some pretty funky support for the stuff that they do.. for example:

Clan-specific parts of the arena tree... ie clan [XYZ] will get its own arena, with sub arenas for practice, tourneys, internal ladders etc. They will also get their own chatroom structures, with user control - all from within the client.

Clans will be able to create "cross-clan" arenas - arenas where only people from either clan A or B can meet and play. Sorta like a "war arena" ..

Of course, with the Kai UI SDK looming, I hope to see some pretty cool interpretations of the Kai ui - maybe even totally new concept UI's - made by clans.. The visual standard of a lot of the sites it excellent (http://wsd.hostlab.co.uk for example).

We've not just dived into this blindly too - we've asked for help from a few ppl who really know how the clans stuff works - and although we havent got anything down in concrete yet, its just a matter of time..

I think its a pretty exciting aspect of online gaming - and i think u guys could produce some pretty interesting stuff eventually - as you have xtag database access etc...

Nice one TD,

Sounds like Kai will bring a whole new xbox gaming expereance, for competitive play on all levels.

The thing I love most about xlink, is the community ideal and the way that the crew really listen to there user base.

before Xlink my on-line gaming expereance was on services like MSN Gaming Zone, Yahoo and Gamespy.

In my opinion they was all a little "large" ok you could get get to know a couple of people, but you would never get chatting to anyone who had anything to do with the development of the service.

Happy 2004 everyone

Taz

* What is your Clan name?
[SaD] Search and Destroy jester.gif
* How are you identified?
We're totally crap so you can't miss us tongue.gif
* What games do you play as a clan?
Rainbow Six 3 (both versions but sh don't tell dfunked)
* How many members do you have? (aprox.)
5 give or take 0
* What Gaming Services do your clan use? (ie. Xlink/XB Connect/Gamespy/Warpipe etc.)
Why only the best xlink
* What are your objectives? (ie. Just have fun/Create a force of unimanigable magnitude)
To win a game once would do for starters
* Do you have a Clan website? (if you do please provide a URL)
Nope not yet
* Do you have rival Clan(s)?
* When you recruit new members is it based more on skill or personality?
How many beers they can consume while playing online
* If anyone wants to become a member of your clan how should they go about it?
Who'd want to join us

plus anything else I may find useful.

We're 2 Brits (mates) and 3 Dutch guys (mates) who play R63 together a lot and we thought it'd be a larf to form a clan.

It would be nice to get all 5 of us on the beta (I'm already signed up) wink wink

You know what, there should be a pinned thread showing all the clans available to join for each game on xlink. I think this would really jump start the development of clans and make xlink that much more competitive. Just an idea!

Well, I think I will start a clan. It's called Demon Hunters. If you want to be affiliated with the clan, go ahead and add _DH after ur kai beta name.

For example, mine's Frag_Daddy_DH. PM me if you want to join so i can get a list put together. Thx.

I represent the core of the Rainbow Six 3 xlink community. We have played with fragdad and chillinhh I'd like to bring to your attention who we are. Due to the release of xlink kai and the new means of connecting that kai has introduced we feel it is time to organize ourselves and make a permanent home for us in kai. We are the biggest group of Ranbow Six 3 players using xlink and possibly the largest group of players in xlink period (there may be a larger halo based group, but no offense, Halo has been played to death, get over it, Halo 2 will be out soon anyway :) ).
I'd like to point out several things that we have noticed. You mention the usage of abbreviations in front of names indicating clans. We have noticed this also but have also found that in the past few months some of the rooms with these abbreviations in front contain no one who is playing link games and that beyond "Is there a game going in here"? there is virtually no conversation going on. Why these people chose to stay idle, no one can say but them, perhaps they will post here soon. We have noticed that xlink users tend to be much more friendly, are less likely apply cheats, are less likely to build up animosity and less likely to feud and won't kick you from the room for minor offenses when compared to xbconnect. These are the reasons we choose xlink/xlink kai over other similar services.


*Our name is X-Rated
This comes from a joke about someone causing lag due to downloading porn while playing xlink. We don't exactly call ourselves a clan but we are a group. If "clan" is to be the generic term, then so be it.

*As of yet we do not identify oursevles by any type of abbreviations or special characters, instead we choose to preserve our own identities by using the existing xtags we have already been using, however most of us know each other by our Rainbow Six 3 Profile names.

*We mainly play Rainbow Six 3, this may change as other games featuring link play are released, a few other games we play are: Top Spin, GR, GRIT, PGR2, Crimson Skies, Sega GT Online, Links 2004, Corvette, XIII, CounterStrike, and Halo.

*We have aprox. 30-40 people that gravitate to the same rooms.

*Xlink, XBConnect, to my knowledge many of us haven't tried Warpipe or GameSpy.

*Pirmary Objective: Kill. Get the coolest looking final kill. Secondary Objectives: Kill more. Joke about killing, shoot the body after you've killed it. Drink and recreation. Don't get killed by dropknee. Blow stuff up.

*No website as of yet but i know you guys and girls are reading this reading this so if you don't make one my G36C is gonna make your RB6 experience very unpleasant. Bang, you're dead.

*No rivals really but we have alot of fun playing with TEAM PREMO wattup, SaD, silent killers, as for you fragdad what's that demon hunters thing, you know you're one of us :)

*If you don't have a mic we'll tease you until you get one. It's $30. If you don't have a mic but you do something funny or cool in the game or just kill alot. We are very fair but please don't be rude, especially to the ladies. If there is young person playing don't swear.

*Keep coming back to play.

We still mainly use rc4 but kai gets the thumbs up from us.
Thanks taz
