Greetings and salutations! Most of you will know me as Dave, but I'm DarkWinter. Following our reformation of the Team Fortress 2 clan I am intending to keep the main blog up to date with updates of our progression, any issues and a few little snippets here and there.
It's early days yet but recently most members have been getting back into the game after a long hiatus of play: Personally, I have been playing a lot of the Pyro class and using the new unlocked weapons to see how they incorporate into my play style.
We've been on our new Ventrilo server (details are on the forums) and playing around with the public to test our skills. Officer positions have been handed out, full descriptions can been seen on our forums but things seem to be shaping up quite nicely.
The server has been sorted out and seems to be running well with HLStatsX and a good looking front splash screen with all our information. We are currently working on recruitment, filling our ranks or blanks with c… continue reading

As anyone who is reading this probably knows, the clan has been dormant for quite a while now since the WAR guild died. However, once again a reformation is planned and a return to TF2 will be the first item on the new agenda.
I'm pleased to say DarkWinter will be making a long awaited return to help SoulRapture and myself run things.
I'm not sure which of the previous members will be returning for definite but hopefully over the next week or two we'll know how many new recruits we'll be needing. We had a game earlier this evening with 5 of us (myself, SoulRapture, DarkWinter, Indig0 and Sketch) which was good, and with a bit of effort we should be getting things going again really soon.
Anyone who is interested in participating in the new clan's activities please login to the site and update your profile with your rough availability times so I know what gaps we need to fill. If you can't remember your login then please ask me.

Right the site hasn't been updated for ages because all the tools you need for organising members / events in WAR.. are in WAR, so the site wasn't particularly necessary.
After just over a month of WAR, I feel like [DkR] should at least partially move back to an FPS. WAR is fun, but I don't really want to spend all my time playing it and nothing else. Even if we just casually play another FPS that'd be nice.
TF2, COD4, Counter-Strike: Source. Those are the candidates as far as I can see.
Don't really know what direction to take.. in general. The WAR guild has become very inactive very suddenly. A week or two ago we had 20/30 people playing at any given time and plenty of chat going on, whereas now it's often just me, and a number of people have left to join BLOOD >_>.
Think TF2 is still my favourite FPS tbh. I dunno. Need some more thought. Message me with feedback.

Righto, due to the lack of interest in TF2 at the moment, I've decided to branch [DkR] out to Warhammer Online which is released on the 18th of September. Indig0 is already part of his guild Titans so he won't be joining us (though we will be allied with his guild), but hopefully anyone else in [DkR] who's at all interested in WAR will consider joining us on there. Myself, Jasmine, DarkWinter, Phuse and Reaper will definitely be there. I'm pretty sure SoulRapture will be joining us as well. Don't know if Sketch is convinced :P.
I'll ask the remaining members what their thoughts are on the game as well.
As for TF2, I don't know, I'm still going to play public and proudly wear my [DkR] tag :P We'll see if we can generate some more enthusiasm somehow, otherwise maybe recruit some more members. Either way I want to get some more out of TF2, we've only had maybe 30 matches, which is nothing compared to the 140 or so CS matches we had.

We've had a few of late night public games with a handful of us over the past week or so, but it's still not really enough to call us an active clan. I'm going to try to get some more pub fests sorted and then once the cogs are rotating smoothly I'm up for playing some more matches. I've got some free time now so I can spend some of that free time getting [DkR] going again.
Send me a message over Steam, on the forums, or on the shoutbox if you're still around and up for playing. If we need some more members, I shall be out recruiting whenever possible.
Also, with Warhammer Online out soon (September 18th), I'm going to be spending some time playing that. If enough [DkR] people are interested in playing it, I'll consider setting up a guild on there, otherwise I'm sure any [DkR] members who are going to play it will be welcome in Indig0's MMORPG guild Titans (though ask him first obviously).
TF2 will remain the focus of [DkR] for the forseeable future - as Diablo III and Starcraft II are… continue reading
