Love is hard....without a credit card!

Back from my week off at school up in Aberdeen - news will be a bit short this week due to the fact I havn't even touched TF2 for over a week now, and we've been on a bit of a holiday it seems with other leaders moving house and not having any free time.

Tonight will be our first night back on the beat....so to speak - I did have a game arranged with Arc however I don't think we'll have enough people to play so I doubt it'll go ahead. This isn't supprising as we've all been doing other things, and need to gradually get back into things.

From what people have been saying, our server seems to be 'up to scratch' so hopefully, we can put it to some use and get some games together.

Otherwise - keep your eyes on the schedule and the forums, if you want to play - that's the way! :)

A very busy week of games and news! We've had a spree of activity from all members. We played 5 matches on Tuesday last week, 3 wins against our old friends Arc and 2 losses against some random clans however a very positive night. We played very tactically and used all our players effectively; I felt we all came away with very good feelings about the way things were going.

We had a few more nights last week messing about on public, getting to know each other and working together as a team. Our last match was played last night, unscheduled which I was extremely happy to see despite it being a loss it was still good to enjoy ourselves.

Sketch and Tiger have formed their own clan outside of the community, whilst not really advisable in my opinion I'd still like to say they haven't left the clan they just want to take things to a new competitive level. I'd like to pass on my own wishes of good luck and hope they have all the best of success!

We have now got a new server with Killercreation… continue reading

This week we've seen the first few days of the practices I scheduled last week, I must say they have been filling up quite nicely for the last bit of the month we have left.

Saturday was our first recruitment spree, Dark Reaver, I and a few others spent some time going through some public servers and we have got three new trialists to the clan! I'd like to formerly welcome Chippy, SHUG and Jammin to the clan!

We had lots of fun online and we got most of the new recruits set up on the clan website. We have had a couple of nights where we've ran into trouble getting some members onto ventrillo, please new recruits – find some time to get yourself onto ventrillo so you can start playing in matches. All the details you should need will be on the forums.

Games continue to rock on! I'd like to encourage all members to keep their eyes on the forums and the main site, the schedule will be updated at a monthly basis!

Apologies!

After a week of absenteeism I think I need to apologise to you all, I really should have announced at least I wouldn't have been online for a while. Sorry everyone! I think the recent lapse of activity is probably my fault. This is not a sign of the recent iteration of DkR ending, c'mon we need to be positive!!

I've been thinking its kind of easy to lapse into a series of inactivity due to our schedule really runs from week to week. I've decided to plan some definite day of 'practice' month by month, what the clan get's up to on these days is really up to the clan it is really just a night where there will definitely be people online within the clan playing the game. Here are a few things these days might involve all depending on level of participation;

• Random IRC match
• Playing on public servers (team stacking ofc)
• Strategy/Tactic discussions (i.e going through some different styles of play, tactics or strategy)
• Internal clan war

I think the strategy/tactic point might be a bit co… continue reading

This week we've been working as a team on publics and through IRC, we've been focusing on voice communication and strategy following some suggestions from some of the clan. The results for each game have not been updated recently, of which we'll have to apologise for.

We have been forming little "buddy" groups within public to try and build our teamwork; Farrow and myself as well as Reaver have been working as a group which I've been enjoying thoroughly. We've been looking for flaws within our strategy and trying to vary the way we play and adapt to the enemies movements.

Indigo's scripts have been updated and they are ready for all those brave souls that dare use them. Sugar Plum has recently celebrated a birthday and should be coming back into full swing once her new rig is set up. Major_Malfunction has also celebrated his birthday and I swear, I will get out a special gift to him soon (check forums for details).

Some of the clan have been trying to help others in some technical diff… continue reading
