As a player/clanmember/officer/commander, what made you think that your current clan/former clan is considered a good/bad one? And what made you joined it?

Both clans, ACES had and now DRACS have players who are willing to coach/mentor/flight with other players. Most players exhibit good sportsmanship and competiveness. Leadership held the players to a high standard and lead by example.

 

EDIT: in both cases they also want to fly with a player first to see if the person is a good fit for the team. This applies in other games I play as well. I joined because some of my former clanmates who had gone to DRACS were both good pilots and good people asked me to try out but only after I worked hard at becoming better.

It depends on what you are looking for as far as your clan.

Do you want a high competition standard and try for and keep a top 10 position in the ratings ?

Or do you want a casual group that wants to stay in the competition side of things, but not worry so much about ratings ?

 

There are alot of things that make a clan great and memorable to its members, including respect.

If you have respect amongst your members, and everyone has a clear understanding of your clans goals, you cant go wrong.

 

The willingness to train/teach/coach is in my book a standard operation included with being in a clan.

The willingness to accept just about anyone can sometimes hurt you, unless you have a very strong training system.

Here at [SF], we take almost anyone and are willing to put as much time into that player to get them performing.

Other clans expect you to know the basics at least, or even require advanced skills.

 

The success of your clan is by all means decided upon by its officers to see, and adapt to changes in the game, and the player base in my book.

Regardless of a competitive clan or a casual clan, the clan members need to fit together and get along(or at a minimum put their differences aside). If that doesn't work, everything else is secondary. 

    for competitive play, training together is important. If you are in a clan that takes most levels of skill, having a training program would be good to help those who aren't as skilled. This might be as simple as flighting with them on comms and giving them feedback while flying and then talking about the match afterwards to see what went well and what could have gone better. Or having training nights in the training room where each side has a the experienced pilots and the less experienced  ones are evenly distributed between the two teams and you work on tactics and other stuff to improve play. 

  scrimmages amongst other clans can be beneficial as well. Our clan had a scrimmage against another clan, and it seemed like there was some training involved. I wasn't there, but speaking to clan members on both sides led me to believe there was a training element to it

I have no idea what makes a good clan: we have 66 bail jumpers, parole violators, and psychopaths. That being said, I would not fly with anybody else in this game. They never have put their own interests ahead of what is best for everyone.

Don't forget the reprobates, scoundrels, miscreants, degenerates, and Canadians!

 

 

Wait, what? There are 66 of us now? Did Ace leave the door open again and more snuck in? You're as bad as my kids, Ace! Close the door behind you!

Characteristics of a Good Clan

  1. Good Leadership - It starts from the top.
  2. No Internal Conflict/Politics - People should really talk to various members several times on TS before joining a clan. Know with whom you're aligning yourself.
  3. No Clan-jumping - No commitment.
  4. Implicit Trust - Never having to worry about what a fellow clanmate said/did while wearing the same tags you do.

 


 

Naturally, my clan has all of this. Unfortunately recruitment is closed as the roster is full.

 

:honoring:


Hoping they pull the plug altogether on WoWP at this point.

Speaking of Snow Birds, I got to see them recently, as part of a deferred Fathers Day gift my family attended a local Air Show.  It was the first time seeing them in about 20 years.  The last time was at the Toronto Air Show, there was a mid air collision and 2 pilots died.  This time there were no accidents, but I cringed every time they performed their head on maneuvers.  I would have uploaded pictures but I forgot my Canon Eos Rebel Digital SLR at home, sadly, the cell phone camera phone camera, as good as it is, only makes an airshow look like black dots.  I cant tell if it is a C-130 or the F-22 Raptor.

Members have a sense of humor.

Anything else is irrelevant.

Well 1st it cant be too fishy.  Second,  it should be accompanied by a sauce that's not too overpowering.   Served with the right wine is the best.
