Greetings!

My name is Paladine and I am here to tell you that the Golden Foxes are seeking mechwarriors of good humor and good disposition on an ongoing basis. Great skill is less desired than a great personality; we can train one, but not the other.

The Golden Foxes are the new Mechwarrior division of the DJO, a larger gaming organization that has been around for over 15 years now, since the days of X-Wing vs TIE Fighter and the Zone. Our founding members are all gaming veterans dating back either all or most of that time, and have been playing together for years. We pride ourselves on having an attractive site, reliable officers, and a military style structure.

Despite that, we in the Foxes are essentially casual players, interested in making new friends, helping teach new players and working on their builds, and striving towards developing skills and builds for all players that will ultimately make them effective contributors in competitive teams. For less competitive types, we want to nevertheless simply be good friends to group and play with. To those ends, we are presently using Teamspeak for communication and coordination in-game, and request all members to use voice comms when playing together.

While we do play to win, we do not take ourselves too seriously. As long as you are friendly and trying to move with the team and actively trying to follow the directions and orders of the officer leading the drop, nobody is going to be chewing you out and kicking you for missing that one shot, or falling off the bridge, etc. That just means it's time for more practice.

At this point, we are a mid-sized unit, and are still growing. As such, there are also plenty of opportunities for motivated members to help steer our course and actively participate in the development of the unit.

What We Want From New Recruits
  • Good character and personality
  • Ability and willingness to use Teamspeak
  • Relatively sociable
  • Willingness to listen to and work with a team, and to follow orders during organized drops
What We Don't Want From New Recruits
  • Rudeness, abrasiveness, and unfriendliness
  • Unwillingness to help less experienced pilots learn the game
  • "Raging" when you die, lose, etc
Please feel free to check us out at http://fox.darkjedi.org and sign up here!





Anyone is welcome to apply, simply enlist on our site.

We know we cater to a particular kind of relaxed, friendly, and mature gamer, and that does not speak to everyone. If it does sound interesting to you though, feel free to head over and sign up on the site!

We look forward to hearing from you!

Regards,

Paladine

Are you guys "furries"? I saw the picture of the fox in the helmet on the site and just wanted to know. Not that there is anything wrong with that, it is just not my cup-o-noodles if you will. Looking to join a group that has an irreverant sense of silly humour tempered with maturity.

Nasty... New to the Foxes, but we're no "furries." Definately a mature, but also laid-back group of guys. Very strong on team-building, and helping new(ish) guys get into a strong role in the game. I'd say, if nothing else, come chat with the guys on TS3, and see for yourself if there's anything you like or dislike about the team, and make a decision from that. :lol:

I'd love to join you guys, right now with my high ping (average 800) I am stuck playing fire-support, and I do decently at it, but its hard when nobody spots for ya.

We're not furries, no, but I do like to joke that our battle cry is "Yiff yiff!"

Primarily US, but we've got a small and growing international population. Right now we have 6 from UK, 1 from Germany, 1 from New Zealand, and 1 from Singapore, out of 41 on the roster. Some or our NA players have very unusual play schedules too that frequently put them in contact with some of the Euro types.

We have units for non-US groups, so the more we can get of them, the better.

Come by and check us out. This is a very good group that plays to win, but not at the expense of fun.

Last night we managed to sync-drop 16 FOX players a couple of times - our first club-only matches. Immense amount of fun, great time for experimenting with our team builds and tactics. I highly encourage people to get in on this.

Hello Foxes, Just a question, I've been looking at the site for a few weeks, I'm interested in joining up for some good teamplay. my only concern is that I'm in a fairly intensive academic program, and may need to disappear for extended periods around exams and the like, is that a concern for the foxes? I don't want to sign up and take a spot of a willing teammate if this is an issue or anything. ;)

@Iceman011: We are open to whatever your schedule is. None of the events are mandatory in any way. Most of have work/school etc. (I myself am working on my PhD), so we understand that you may have disappear sometimes. There will still be plenty of room for the next person.

EDIT: also Maverick and Iceman? C'mon you two need to run together.
