SJr recruiting hardcore/competitive players

To amend our OP: now that we've been informed leagues/private organized matches will not really be supported at release, we'll have to focus our competitive fervor solely on competitive play within the boundaries of in-game ranking. No problem!
Check your roleplay at the door.
As a little more info about our unit (because why waste a bump), I'll let you know a little bit about our philosophy. If you've ever read David Sirlin's "Playing to Win", that sums it up pretty well. We attack a game from the perspective of figuring it out and maximizing our potential. That, for us, is fun and it paid off in MechWarrior 4. However, unlike most success-oriented teams, we frown on trash talking/bragging/gloating and disrespectful behavior. Not that we're saints by any means - but let's just say that Good Guy Greg is the model citizen.
Although we are a Clan based team, our roleplay stays "on paper". We do not apply roleplay or "honor rules" or even Zellbrigen to our gameplay unless league rules or game mechanics dictate that we do so. We leg, we team up on individual 'Mechs, we utilize the most powerful configurations as a rule, we do not lock ourselves into the "but this underpowered mechanic is more funnnn" mindset, and we mercilessly destroy without any pretenses. I understand this is a controversial outlook, but it is how SJr rolls.
I know many people wonder why all these teams keep trying to recruit for a game that is still questionable in its status. I think we all hope simply to find a few likeminded individuals who are equally excited about the game and are looking for a community to hang with while we wait. At least, that's our angle.
So if success:community::genotype:environment, check us out.
Do you have the Resolve to be part of Smoke Jaguar Reborn? (yankee doodle went to town...) We just need more frands.

OMG what a long bump. TL:DR

Wouldn't say it's all that controversial. I can't remember any hardcore roleplayers that were any good. Utilizing the most powerful configs is what a competitive unit does. These kinds of things are common amongst units that takie winning seriously. +1

Goofball. Well, Eaglez0r, since you are not already SJr >_> I shall tell you how!
Go to Our Recruitment Info Thread - read it, see if we still float your boat, and follow the directions there.

Totally agree with you - just wish more players would see it this way. MechWarrior 4 had a dearth of serious competition - partly due to a comparitively small player base, but also due to how RP heavy the community is, carrying it even into gameplay. To their detriment, usually.

Seriously, though. This team is the sh*t ... and has been for 10 years despite the ups and downs and bumps and crashes. While we're an 18+ only team today, it wasn't always that way: several members of this team literally grew up together with SJr as a constant.
Are you interested in forging bonds like that? Come get to know us - and even if you aren't that interested in joining, you're welcome to post on our boards and visit our Mumble server and IRC channel. We love making more frands. Now is a great time to get to know teams you might want to sign up with when MWO releases.
If you play Battlefield 3 on PC, consider hooking up with us for some games. We're looking to form a small competitive team for TWL while we wait for the glorious MWO. I'd be glad to tell you my BattleLog ID!
So yes - SJr for the win. 18+ only, good frands, good times, no d-bags allowed. (Most members are North American but we have no reservation about accepting members from other time zones; we would glomp to have a Euro division again.)

As for how we're swinging a non-Clan Clan Merc Clan Merc not canon yet canon Merclan team ... that's a Grade 2 Adept secret.
((Side note: Having seen that there are lots of lady 'Mechers who have registered on these boards so far, I want to make it known that SJr is a lady-friendly team. We have had several ladies in the team throughout our history, not just me. We do not tolerate misogynism or sexist behavior. - Yes, some of you might think this addition is odd. But the ladies understand what I'm sayin'. - ))

My apologies to anyone who tried to apply using our boards ... I um ... messed up the permissions, like a complete derp. >_> So if you had tried to post and couldn't, that was my bad.
