Websites and "Your Galaxy"
Posted 18 November 2011 - 03:47 PM
When I was in Blood Spirit and Star Adder, each had our forums, their own rank structure, trials, etc. Over time, i have seen muliple other sites for all the Clans, and all are real, there is no "THE Jade Falcon". or "THE Wolves" though in various times some have earned that title through reputation for a period.
How do you for see this working in MWO? If my old Clan got together, would they perhaps be Omicron Galaxy? While the German Star Adders might be Gamma Galaxy? Do you see a Keshik trialed for amongst all the members of a single Clan? Gamma galaxy might have its own website and forums and a (canon, recognized) rank structure just for its Galaxy, and a member on the Keshik. Could the Keshik then issue bloodnames through all the Galaxies to be Trialed for? Is that too much power, and doomed to fail or is it wonderful?

The unit started as a Trinary, the 72nd Assault Trinary, which is the unit you play through MW2:GBL. When MWO was announced officially, and due to having more than 15 members we decided to expand to a Cluster, which we had been in talks about anyways when we reached 15+ members.
We use Engin as our website host, it is fantastic as it offers easy customization of t he website for free with logins, recruitment forms and forums as well as a few other features, Once I have some cash, or my wife says maybe for Christmas I plan on getting a sub for the site as I have used it for 10 months already and love the site.

It's going to be interesting to see how this will actually work out, and it's probably best that you pick a unit instead of the entire clan to say that you represent seeing as you won't be able to select the entire Clan in game due to Piranha holding the names. Also, there's going to be a lot of brand new players who won't either be active on the forums or want to submit to someone else being "leader" especially if it's a group of friends (though here's hoping people will work together) so it'd be really silly to see 5 to 10 proclaimed "Clan Jade Falcon" leaders, etc.

I like the idea of fighting trials for the right to be the Keshik. I doubt that will happen though...just based on how things look now. Things like certain merc unit names being locked out, and the inability to play as a house unit doesn't bode well for being able to play as actual important units such as the Keshik.
It will be interesting to see how they handle the clan version of the merc corps...since clearly that won't work with clan factions.
