Ok, so, war with The Sacred Wings clan is coming soon. No set date yet, but its never too early to prepare. Unless times have drastically changed with clans, I plan to select a roster in the same way I used to: Pick the best available players and if roster spots are still open, hold a tryout.

Yoshikko, Renael, and Dark Azelf, as you three are our three highest ranking members, what I'm traditionally going to do is ask you if you would be willing to be on the roster.

Depending on what you say, there are still two to (hopefully not) five spots left. From there, the clan will hold tryouts. Our Member 2nd Class rank being far more common than our Member 1st Class and Advanced Member 2nd Class ranks are what cause the last, hopefully, two roster spots to be left up to competition.

With that said, any members who would like to take part in the war should post in this thread stating so. Keep in mind that you cannot be on the roster if you hold the Newbie rank. I will withhold myself from the roster as to give others a chance to participate.

So, yeah, get to posting/registering

I will update the first post with information regarding the war as soon as I get back to my dorm from classes :]

Yes! 2 down, 3 to go! As for timing, etc.. Nica and I haven't decided yet So far we're just building our rosters. Although it might end up being Sacred Wings + Eon vs Walrein :o
But we'll win, regardless ;]

I'll update the first post with some war info soon but consider the EXP updated right now

Which leads me to my next point; Congrats Rednael! You are now an Advanced Member 2nd Class! You and Yoh are now our two highest ranking members! :D


EDIT: A new "Clan News" section has been added to the first post. The clan war, as well as the current roster, has also been added to the "Clan Events" section.

EDIT: EDIT: Just wanted to drop off some little information: Clan war battles do count towards your EXP count. The only difference is, the EXP gained is doubled, no matter what. If you win a war battle, you will earn 20 EXP points. If you lose, you will still win 10 EXP. It's quite the way to get some extra "oomph" in climbing up our ranking system. Once the war ends, all participants will also gain an additional 10 EXP due to the experience of war, so to speak.

And as a notification, we will have a bench roster for the war. Essentially, this means that if any of our starting war roster members are unable to battle, you will be asked to fill in for them. The bench roster will be comprised of those who tried out, but didn't manage to make the starting roster, for whatever reason.

Maybe I'm overestimating the means of our clans at this point, but why only five people? Five people is more like a clan skirmish... I think seven people each makes this more...eventful.

We could try 7v7, but like Yoh said, I think it'd be pretty tough to simply find that many active members haha. I went back and counted how many members the Rebirth Revolution Clan had during PC's first run with clans. 39.. Maybe if we had that many people 7v7 wouldn't seem like such an obstacle to achieve lol

As for Yoh, updated aaaand Just lost to Rednael, so that's getting added too

So, remember the last time I calculated each clan activity? Well I decided to do it again :]

The Walrein Clan - Activity index of 14.4, up 7.3 from last time's 7.1!
The Sacred Wings Clan - Activity index of 4.7, down 0.8 from last time's 5.5..
Team Eon - Activity index of 2.0, down 0.3 from last time's 2.3..
The Stormbringers Clan - Activity index of 1.5, down 0.8 from last time's 2.3..

The activity index is simply calculated by (x/y)x100, where x=posts made and y=thread viewed.

Anyways, hooray for Walrein! We shot up a whole 103% in terms of activity! Numbers are generally skewed since some posts don't regard to actually battling, but most of our thread comprises of posts made about wins and losses anyways so its not too bad.

and While activity has dropped for other clans, hopefully this upcoming war will shoot some much needed activity into the community

What, is that an official way to calculate activity? I don't think views matter that much btw lol, non-members also view the clans but they don't contribute to activity.

Nope. Just an incredibly flawed way I decided to do it lol

I'm sure actually creating a formula based on member count + posts wouldn't be too tough though. Anyone wanna volunteer? ;]

And I'll update the post now

Well I don't think it really matters anyway, we shouldn't be comparing clans to eachother because they are all different and some members just tend to talk more than others.

[ Also just won to Aenar ]

[
aaand lost lol ]

[
and won again lol LOVE TOXIC STALL!! ]

25 boom boom

[
won again ty m dragon stall you still work like a charm ]

[ Won against Aenar ]

Also I wanna suggest this - since losses count now, obviously you should post your losses too. But then go at it this way - if someone posts their win against a specified person, only upload the win for the person that posted, not the loss, even though you know who it was for. To keep it consistent, only update losses/wins that are mentioned by the person they belong to.

So if person A posts a win against person B, only update person A's win, not person B's loss, untill person B posts it himself.

Agreed. Well, I guess Rednael doesn't really need to post anything since I've pretty much added all his points anyways.. hahahaha

^I'll just go ahead and add the 5 exp you got from that battle with Yoh, one last time, jsut to make everything easier in the future.

aaaand, from now on, you guys'll only get credit for things you post yourself :]

So, it has come to my attention that some think the first post lacks pizazz aaaand Because of that, you guys'll get to decide if you want the image of Walrein in the first post to be changed to this:

Spoiler:

^ Courtesy of Yoh.

Side by side comparison
Spoiler:
or


So get to voting!
