Something where competant players could sign up to coach newbies would be awesome! then no one can kick people for "bad play" because they can just coach them!


After reading this from the negative awards thread, I came up with an idea to encourage newbie training. So here's the pitch: let's kill multiple swifts with a single screamer missile by reviving the clan scene. Let's reignite the clan wars. The last clan vs clan thing that I can recall was back when ISP still existed. During previous planetwars, clans were of little importance too. As such, I feel that if other clan leaders got together, maybe we could create some "friendly" competition to revive interest in clans.

So, here's the idea:
1.) Find a bunch of new players who want to learn or perform open recruitment.
2.) Create midsized games with these clans with their adopted new players as training exercises.
3.) Have these new players compete at the end of the cycle for glory of the clans they represent.
4.) Create a meta game around clan vs clan activities?

For this to work, we'll need newbies (or low end players) and some clans who are interested. If other clan leaders/representatives would like to pitch in ideas, that'd be great too. We would each benefit from revival in the clan scene I think as well as the community as a whole by training newbies for the big team game.

Love the idea, am away from ingame sadly :(

Here is a proposition to kickstart
Biweekly event for discord/mumble party, emphasis on meeting new players, and shaping clan wars meta
Id sugget making a forum thread and pinging every otherweek when the day is nearing,
manu has been doing it quite successfuly for high elo event.

I could create the hosts (using tournament controls) to guarantee a set of teams.

Mostly need more interested parties. I would appreciate the support behind this initiative, if you're willing to help throw some behind it. I'd suggest talking about it amongst your members and try to come up with a date range you are all able to attend.

There's at least 2-5 of us in ADVENT who are regulars, and FIranksprang talked about joining occasionally (if I read correctly). We potentially could create a 6v6, although a potential fear of this is that we lack purple players of our own, although collective intelligence may make up for it.

I'd like to hear from MC, TheGBC, LoBSTR, RSN, and Mean. See if we can't create some sort of mini event regarding clans.

Maybe may 17-19?

Oooh, yes.

We've also had some pretty good scrims with PRO recently, perhaps they might be interested in joining the shortlist?

I've set a time for the meet up. If any clan is interested but cannot attend, let me know if the day or time needs adjusting. I'd like to include everyone possible.

Noted and added to the list. Hopefully this can get some traction! Welcome to ZK!

USrank_Shaman I totally agree. I was just thinking myself recently the same thing. Why don't we have more fighting between clans. Perhaps PlanetWars should be modified so that it supports battles at clan level.

Sign me up for coaching, thanks in advance for all the work going into orginising a big event like that.

Fun idea, especially the newbie adoption/coaching part.

What would the structure be like? Perhaps round robin, with an emphasis on creating balanced and good games instead of just trying to score wins?

RR sounds good. Hopefully MC join. We got a grudge to settle with our rivals in the coordinated team space ;)

Hi, i'd like to get better with a clan as well and just in general.

Open to others joining my clan Supreme Killers, be willing to use voice coms and willing to listen. Will coach for teams as that is what I'm good at.

the date would overlap with next high elons event,
may be wise to unoverlap

is it possible to have the !topic mentioning the event a day prior

I'm moderately interested in the idea but 1900 UTC is pretty brutal in this part of the world - maybe next time? Maybe I'll work up enough enthusiasm to get up at 5am, we'll see.

We could bump it up to 20:00 UTC, if that would work for you AUrankAdminAquanim.
