greatest obstacle to quality recruitment is our red tape.

there had been atleast 3 very skilled players we wanted and lost to other clans because other clans do not take days or weeks to decide on applicants.

our policy isn't necessarily bad but it did allow other clans to instantly snap up a good recruit the moment they find one while we 'linger'

suggestion I made in Council was to allow CW in-game officers to instantly accept potential recruits directly into our in-game clan. Lock them in with our clan tag first.

Then if Creed clan wants to deliberate on said player for weeks on end, by all means. Atleast we have him in already. And if generals / commanders voted no later on - kick him out in-game.

Secure prospects first
Vote on membership later

instead of the other way around.

situation in CW is unique

we could accept someone who has the skills but unknown personality into the in-game clan so he will wear our tag

it dont mean he has access to our forums

this way we can secure prospects while we take our time discussing his membership.

I try to be active in CW when I can, but it's hard for me. The only time when the internet isn't overworked in my dorm is early afternoon, and I never get back to my dorm until nighttime, when everyone's using it.

I play CW and log into RC everyday... but noone remembers me. Alas, I die inside.  Wink 

I was even invited into Figa yesterday however I said "No, I am Creed through and through".

I used to play a game (7 dragons) before it shut down, and I used a letter similar to the above one to recruit for my alliance.

It worked fairly well, but maybe you could personalize the "Hey there" to "Hey, (name)" or if they recently got a good achievement or somehow managed to whoop yer arse in game, be like "Congratulations on your (achievement) [Pro kill, w.e.] I noticed you're a formidable opponent in game (or great team mate) in game"

This is just what I did, and it's just a personal suggestion, but cool imo nontheless.

Regards,
Kilt

Good Idea, I log in everyday in Cw and try to play a bit, but, most of the times, I don't talk into the chat, so, it's hardly to recruit someone if you don't interact with nobody.

This is a great way to get good players. Everyone needs to remember if they are asked how to contact us, to use the tiny.cc/creedarmy link... easy to remember, easy to type quickly at end of matches.

I don't check CW forums at all. I just play (dominate) the game Wink

I wasn't saying not to do a nice clan ad.

Just another way to get us some traffic. See someone that plays well, and switches sides when teams are uneven, hit them up with a link.

So I spoke with p0wn0d today.

He told me that him and a few others are not happy in SSNC land.

I asked him IF he should choose to leave if he'd consider coming here.
A few names were tossed around... Him, Sprinkls, Gorath, LastBuletOfDeath

All are great great guys, and damn good players.

I think we should consider them now so IF they choose to leave, we can invite them right away.

make fast cw recruitments. If they are skilled and frienly- cw creed within 2 or 3 day. And as soon as we know them better we can add them as full creedlings. We need a more solid base at cw to be competitive, that's the reason why we should invite and kick (if necessary) fast at Cw.

I'd say keep an eye on SSNC roster on CW. If they do leave, I'll be sure to contact them.

I've only played with Sprinkls out of the list that Bubba gave, and I can attest to the fact that he's crazy good. We were on different teams in evac, but luckily we left each other alone and both bashed the crap out of each other's teams haha

Anyone spend time on CW forums?
Does anyone have an update on a clan ad for Contract Wars?

I feel like we've had some decent randoms apply for Creed (level 59 +, w/ 2.0+ KDR) that we've had to blindly reject.

I've just updated our clan add to fit with CreedArmy.

I also answered a bunch of requests.

To everyone, please help out, check our advertisement and point anyone who applies to our forums. Thanks!
