A clan, a family

   Posted by: Awsumgee   in Awsum Avenue

It’s been three years now since I first signed up to Dark Warriors, a totally random pick that resulted from me clicking an ad. I can’t even remember where. Of course, I had no idea I would be playing the game so consistently over the years and still be able to enjoy it. My game has changed, from total newbie in seek of knowledge, clan owner, subscriber, ultra subscriber, to game helper and regular player again. A few things have been keeping me coming back, but my clan is the reason I still play the game. Getting a clan is the most crucial step for a newbie. You will get some coaching and make friends with a group of players. This is what will keep you playing the game. So, it’s important to make a good choice as far as your clan is concerned.

We can mainly identify 4 major types of clans.

1. The Venners

These are fighting clans. They gather together to pile up the bodies and gain maximum score at the end of the month. Usually, the main fighting clans consist of a core of experienced players, usually ultra subscribers with stats making them elite players in the game. They are prone to recruitment if you are ready to fight and build up your character to become elite too. From what I know, they are also very supportive. They usually team up in a group of 10-20 very active members. You will recognize these clans quite easily. Look at the CBR, a venner is there almost every months. Look in your logs, a venner’s member is there constantly. Join or fear the venners!

2. The Fun Crews

You can easily spot a Fun Crew by reading the clan’s description. Usually, it’s all about party and fun. It sometimes involves alcohol. Most of the time, the owners of Fun Crews are quite the jokers in the game’s forums. They really built a clan to their image. Because they usually have some very active members Fun Crews do tend to have their fun in the ven as well. I’ve never been in a Fun Crew, but I bet they will have forums filled with funny pictures. If your in for a laugh and some community fun, join a Fun Crew.

3. The All-rounder

This type of clan is a group that will not fit in the first two categories because they just do everything. This community varies in number and the owners will tolerate inactive players for a longer time. Since the All-rounder clan does not have an elite ven objective, they will usually have a big part of non-subscriber in their members. You will see them in the top 20 once in a while, between camping months. An All-rounder will have it’s own little inner circle, but only a few of it’s members will show up in the game’s general forums.

4. The Dead Clan

Hopefully, you don’t end up there! The Dead Clan, like the name suggests, is inactive. Most of the time, the applications are opened and the owner is not playing anymore. Don’t expect any help there, but expect to drown in a sea of other inactive players. These clans are easy to identify by their huge number of members who all drifted there when the owner opened the floodgates without filtering. As opposed to the Venners they will compete for the bottom 5 each months. A glorious sight.

Hopefully not. You would have to rename it “Murdered Incorporated”!
