Author Topic: My Opnion on Building Clubs  (Read 1167 times)

There just another excuse for a building clan COME ON DO ANY OF YOU HAVE COMMON SENSE OR IS THIS WORLD FRIGGIN IGNORANT is it that hard to notice? They have tags, dedtcated server, website, forums all the ammendities of a clan and oh no my testimony is not over if thay are a building clan why are they so oppressive of their server if they are a building clan why dont they let people outside of their so called "Building Club" build I ask you heck i could even write a song about this and give it to Kanye West to make a video of it. I hope you understand and to prevent flame I will lock this topic.

this thread is now open for opnions

My opinion: Clans, Guilds and Clubs are all different ways to describe different sorts of groups of people that play games together. Clans or normally focused on fighting as a team (usually in FPS shooters). Guilds are usually in MMOs to help build a strong alliance between members. Clubs are something unique to Blockland, and they are a group of people that enjoy building and hanging out together.

I created the first self-proclaimed "Building Club": the Blockland Builder's Club (BLBC for short). Yes, we have a dedicated server up sometimes. Yes, we will have our own website, yes we have places for us to discuss together (not our own forums though). We're not oppressive though. We offer free-building areas on our servers for other people who aren't in the Club or good friends of the club to build in. We don't have tags on our names, we don't think we need to tout that as a piece of our resume.

Why don't we let just ANYONE into the BLBC? Because we like to build with great builders, with mature people, and with people that have personalities that blend well with the group. If someone comes and types all caps, "OMG THIS SERVER ROX! I WANT TO JOIN YOU PLZ!!" why should I be obligated to let them in? I don't know them, they are obviously very noobish if they don't use good grammar, and it also looks like they aren't used to hanging around good builds. Would you like to babysit a bunch of people in your group? I like to just have a server up, give every BLBC member the admin pass, and just let it evolve and take shape on its own. I can't do this if I let everyone be in the club.

I am only saying this because it is true, MotE is a clan, because we play other games, not just BL.
(we play: CS:S, GW, HL2GMod, and a few other games.)
