I'm actually surprised there isn't a clan recruitment section on the board.
It would be an easier way for people to know which clans are recruiting and which aren't.   (instead of people asking and talking about it in game).


Just a thought ...

guess that's why it's "fine" Tongue

@TS, guess it's a good idea. It exists already, but newbs won't know where. From the other side though: do we want all those newbs in our clans, or all trying to get in?

Clans can always state their requirements for consideration.  At the very least ... clan leaders can keep an eye out for player asking to join in game and decide if they're the type of player they're looking for.

I'm not much of a clan person either ... as I simply don't have the time to be able to schedule clan matches and what not.   I just thought it would be a good idea to start a "Clan Recruitment" sub forum for those who wish to take advantage of it.

Too bad there wasn't an american casual clan for adults.    I don't think Old Farts plays OA anymore ?

hm "iam <insert random newb> and want to join a cool clan. I read and accept your rules can i join?Huh??". No matter what rules you write he will just claim he accepted, also if you use requirements like 'minimum playing time xyears' some players will always ask. It's easier to say no then, but if you set high limits you'll scare off other players you actually would like to join (we've had that more than once).

I was thinking more on the lines of clans asking for in game demos or ranking screen shots.   Not sure if years is really an effective requirement as some players might have only played for several months but can be pretty good.

No harm in telling someone that they'll have to get better before they can join.  Some clans might even set them up as "recruits" ... teaching them how to get better until they are ready to join and can defend the clans flag with honor.

Anywhoo ... like I said ... just a thought.

Clans are lame... Grin

"The elitist club" though as mentioned would likly be the best place to get things like that going.

I'm currently thinking of creating just the thing ....  Open Arena Mercenaries.   A site for those who would like to find friends/allies and schedule games with each other.  But without having to dedicate time for clan matches and what not.

I've been playing with an idea like that as well, but kinda don't have the time for it next to developing an own game, work, some other stuff I like to program, openarena (+clanstuff) and the rest of real life.
