Sometimes I wonder why most of you even wear clan tags.
It seems to me that most of you don't know how to respect your clan tag.
Perfect example of this is how recent events have impacted the scheduled Clan Tournament, with only 3 clans participating, and several others boycotting it because it was organized by Mars_Revenant
Holy S***, are you kidding me???
Everyone keeps complaining about how there is nothing for the clans to actually DO, except slag each other off in the forums.
Yet when someone actually steps up and takes time out of their REAL LIFE to try and put something together FOR YOU, no one wants to participate....
WHY? (ok, listen to how stupid this sounds....)
"We are not going to participate, because this was organized by Mars....we don't like Mars, so our clan will not compete against any other clans."
Seriously? Why do you guys even wear clan tags? You're like a bunch of punk wannabe street gangs, who flash their colors, talk a lot of smack, but refuse to fight it out to see who's the best.
Who friggin' CARES who organized this? This is chance to show that there's a reason for you owning, or being in a clan.
Mars took time out of his real life to try and put this together....I know I would never have the time to do it, and while Mars and I are often bumping heads, I truly appreciate the efforts of ANYONE who tries to contribute to the community.
Some people say "He doesn't run the event fairly, and we get screwed over." Show me your proof. For the love of all that is sacred and profane, there aren't even any prizes, so how can one be cheated? I just don't get it.
Some people say "He's an arrogant jerk, who always looks for reasons to slag people off in the forums." What does that have to do with organizing a tournament?
Yeah, Mars, I still think you're a jerk, but for trying to set this up, you get a hearty salute from me.
As for the rest of you "clans" who are always talking smack, but never come to the dance, you are all pathetic.
I know a lot of you personally, and my respect for you personally will never change, but your clan tag is worthless, and doesn't mean squat, if you won't stand up and fight for it.
Serious props to DRACS for always being the first to stand up and say "We'll be there!", even with guys who rarely play the game any more. That's respecting your tag.
Props to SICK as well, for stepping forward and saying "So what if y'all hate us, here's your chance to stomp up on us...yeah, come on!" That's respecting your tag.
And finally, I want to thank my fellow Flying Misfits of WHAWK for putting up with me and suffering through my constant badgering about putting together a team for this event. Thank you to those who readily jumped at the chance to fly against other clans, and many thanks to those of you who simply said "Ok, ok, I'll join if you'll just shut the f*** up!!"
With all of the registered "clans" on this server, it's a shame that we can't even get four of them to join a tournament for bragging rights.....you know....actually playing the game, rather than just spouting off at each other on the forums.
This is truly, truly sad....respect your tags, ladies and gentlemen.
