Hey, guys. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

New games are on the horizon & with new games comes new competition. In order to be competitive & maximize the fun we can have, we're going to have to start up the recruiting process.

1. If you are posting up on other game-related forums, I'd really appreciate it if you could use the [BS!] user bar & hyperlink it to the '[BS!], WTF?' Clan History & Info. page, in your sigs. Just wrap the user bar image with the url tags, like so:

2. We are looking for active social people that are good at games. We are looking for people that show potential and drive. We are looking for funny/interesting people. In short, we are looking for people that will only contribute to our fun & productivity, not detract from it.

3. If you are not an officer & are looking for a buddy/new recruit to join, please contact an officer for additional screening & final decision making.

4. If your recruit is serious about joining, please also direct them to this site & our forums.

i think we need to do a few things:

1. get ppl in our clan to actually sign up for this site, and post 1nce a month.. or something. this is pretty pathetic... we have 5 ppl on here, and we dont even communicate all that regularly.

2. yes recruit new ppl, shouldnt be too hard to tell what type of ppl fit in. gotta be gamers, but too hardcore and they will leave for clans that get wet thinking about game battles. cant be too much of a slacker because we do want to compete when we play together. should be a mix of a semi-serious, semi-competitive, semi-weird, semi-whatever person.

ok. seriously. i r sad.
on my lunch break, i need things to read. i come to this site daily, and see nothing. i can use facebook, but talking about games is, u know, different and fun.

so maybe we need to properly inform those in our clan about this website... ala, actually inviting each person by manually msging them on the PSN.

and for those of u that play ANY game:
niva - uncharted 2
etc.
try to recruit some peeps for our clan. we dont want it to get too thinned out. i know its a tough task, but its worthwhile in the end. with all the ppl on my buddy list, i mostly only meet up with clansmen.

example: recruit 1 new player by december.

a(nother) problem with COD4/MW2 is that there really are no "clans". since anyone can put up any old clan tag, remove it in a second, and there is no clan page info, it is basically non-existent.

its nice that some of the guys who i barely saw on KZ2 who were "in the clan" have played together. some even sport the clan tag.

i am glad to see OCK. played alot with him in COD4. was a beast yet nice guy. he "joined" BS for KZ2 but i dont think he played the game more than a few hours. hes partied with me a couple times in a row, and is using the BS tag, so i hope u guys get a chance to play with him.

that brings us back to the issue of ppl not joining the chat. having to personally msg diff ppl each time (wanna play? invite me! game cancelled, re-send invite?) for every person is a really big drag...

1. could we decide a game mode that we all can enjoy and play together in?
- i know the default has been TDM, but i find this to be one of the least enjoyable game modes. its basically FFA with two sides. DOM? CTF? HQ? DEMO? S&D? anything?
- if we can choose a game mode, then maybe we can start coming up with strategies and put some purpose into the game. as it is now, we all go solo it seems.
- look below for roles. this would shape what style of play (attacking/defensive/helper/etc) for a specific game instead of all just running in different locations without a unfied purpose.

2. could we have the same customized "title" for BlackOps pls.
- i would like to show some solidarity. i dont care what we choose, i just want to feel like a clan god damnit. i know it might scare a few ppl away from joining our lobby, but we need to create some clan spirit.
- in other words, we come up with a color/pattern that everyone in the clan can wear. if this were a sport, we would be wearing the same uniform, right? lets do the same.
- if u think its too much, or deprives u of ur personality, at least make one area universal.
ex: must include a squirrel picture. or must include all-pink background. or must include polka dots. w/e REPRESENT!

3. we need to recruit.
- even guys that were once active just dont seem to play anymore. there are only a handful of players that i even consider "in the clan". and that number is decreasing every year.
- make a quota: each (core) member must recruit 1 person a month, a year, whatever. we will vanish if we keep up the current pace. we need fresh meat. we need our family to grow, not dissipate. VIVA MI FAMILIA

4. would u consider taking a pre-determined role when playing together?
ex: Recon with UAV, spybird, motion sensor, smoke nade; Runner with L/M, silencer, instant attack KStreaks to flank & disorient; Sniper to call out locations/commands with hovering KStreaks; Sponge with flak, tac mask, jammer or decoy to attract attention; Hacker with LMG, hardened, care package as support class, etc
- instead of us using personal, possibly redundant perks/classes, it might be more beneficial to actually collaborate on this. if someone has a weakness, the other could fill that void.
- in other words, i would like to play strategically and collectively.
- having a variation of perks, especially the lesser used ones, should prove tactically superior. i would personally love to take any of the less used roles that no one wants to do
- of course, we can rotate so u dont always play the same role (unless u wanted to).
- if we decided to do this, i would personally take a role, practice with it, and build up the perks/weapons/whatever that would be needed to make it fully operational. that is why we might need to decide sooner, rather than later, especially if we prestige.
TEAMWORK FTW

5. i think we should change the website, so that its more "recruit friendly".
- put up clan background/bio on loadup page. dont make them search for it.
- make an updated list of clan leader, officers/core members, casual members. could include sub-classes. like: red [clan leader] (run gun specialist), dux [officer] (attacking specialist), ban [officer] (objective specialist), kuz [officer] (defending specialist), whatever
- put some individual stats up there as proof we are not just noobs. i dont mean it has to be KD, i mean overall kills or days played. or total headshots. or assists. or kills with a specific weapon. there are tons of cool stats to show.
- we have ppl from 1.0 - 4.0KD. we have ppl with almost 100K kills in a single game. everyone here contributes, so its not about bragging, but we need to show ppl that this clan can play ball. WASSUP

I could deal w/ DOM, maybe CTF. S&D "1 life" deal isn't my thing.

I'm so bad @ this... IDK what to say.

the main way to recruit I'd think is to be out there alot. play/post alot on the official forums, chat it up w/ the community.

The problem w/ all this is that we all have different playing schedules, & the amount of time we have to play. It's been a while since I played w/ you Kuzu, but you don't have all that long to play, right? doing all this would require time & effort. Don't you just wanna play when you get on?

agree. S&D is my least fav. but i probably still enjoy it more than TDM. DOM is very similar to TDM, with just a little more objective, but not much more. u know the spawn directions. u know generally where the enemy will flow to. it just feels more structured. but i would play CTF too. HQ was very fun for me in COD4 as well. Demolition is not bad, especially if we were working together getting shit done.

we can vote on pattern. lets put up ideas after we see the editing/choices available.

u must have ppl on ur friend list who respect u and play with u. talk to those guys first. or, just saying "GG" to a rival on a game or two, might even spark a conversation. go from there.

yes, when i get online i dont want to do any other shit except playing, this is true. but i can do site oriented stuff from work, lol, or on the weekend. i dont think it needs lot of maintenance. just shuffling a few things around. and i agree; best way to recruit is to talk to ppl playing the games. still, 1 recruit for XX-month period is not that unreasonable.
