-- Prologue --
In the newest MotorStorm: Apocalypse update we were given the ability to use Clan tags. In games like CoD these things are taken rather seriously, albeit seldomly, and among the deeper core of the community at that. My idea was to copy this 'CoD-behaviour' and start a Clan, and get others to start Clans! I could imagine we all want the same Clan, but that wouldn't be fun. We need different Clans; after a while we should be able to organize events that make use of those Clans. "Clan War" is a pretty well-known concept among gamers. I don't know where this is leading us, but "if you don't pull the trigger, you'll miss anyhow".
A Clan shouldn't really be too big; seven or eight people will be more than enough. If a Clan is 'full', you can start your own! Making a thread on here is the easiest way, or replying in this very thread. We'd like to have at least one big other clan, which we can entitle 'our rival'!
-- Our Clan --
wildheart90 and I are starting a Clan. We need to recruit more people obviously. Our goal is to create hegemony and solidarity; Clanmembers should end up being good friends! We're taking this rather serious indeed.
Not everyone can join, we've got some prerequisi. To make it feel official one should convince us "why we should recruit him or her", sounds like homework, doesn't it? For some of you "Because I am awesome" will do, but that's because we already know those very well already, thus need no conviction.
We actually want some of those people to start their own Clan and face off against ours occasionally. We'd accept 'noobs' and get them to improve themselves, 'train' them!
-- NEB --
That's our Clan. [NEB] *Your name could be here!*. We hope people will have respect (and fear haha) for those three letters; time will tell. Again, if you want to join this and have those three letters attached to your name, 'legally', send one of us a PM or say it in the thread. We will accept pretty easily; some of you will be accepted under several conditions maybe; others might be advised to start their own Clan instead or joining ours.
-- Epilogue --
If this will all work out very well I will have a Clan-involved event ready within several weeks, in August perhaps, depending on the speed of growing Clans. Thanks for reading this. If I missed anything, or if you have any criticism -which you'll probably have- please let me know.

I have a question, what does [NEB] stand for? No Engine Braking?
I would love to join a Clan (being the leader of my own Clan would be weird) but I'm really liking my Clan Tag at the moment [iAM]
I have my doubts about being able to join some Clans despite my ability just because of how I am and people may not want to be associated with that which I will understand completely if that is the case. I guess I am open to offers if people want me, if not I am happy being in my own Clan of... Me I won't throw my name around saying "Please can I join your clan" because I'm sure if people want me they would come to me.

I'm thinking of starting a clan along the lines of UK in its title.
I'm thinking UKOG (s) or UKHR (s) High Rollers, though this may not actually happen
sounds interesting mate, if you get it going we should have a friendly match against each other

what it stands for is a secret for now
you are welcome to join traxx, but at the same time we don't want to take all the best players cause then there would be no competition.
Surely that is the point of a Clan? You get the best team you can to go up against other Clans of really good players. There are more than enough good players to have 3 or 4 full teams of 8 that could all be competitive.
Some CoD clans just got stupid, MONK for example had what must be over 100 members in a game where only 9 max could play on a team at once. It was stupid and pointless so I just left, also the leader wasn't happy that I beat him in our 1v1 try out but that is another story. Clans should be limited to around 8 players (a full team and a few 'subs' if you could call them that) because any more than that and it gets sillly.
