OTK And Clans- Where We Stand

[quote][url=]OTK's Xbox 360 + Xbox One Clan[/url] [url=]OTK's PS3 and PS4 Clan[/url] [/quote] Howdy all. To our old folks I've seen returning, welcome back! To our newer friends, glad to have you! With the public forums being as busy as they are now, and FAR busier once the game releases (trust me on this, I've been here for three game releases!), it is going to be incredibly difficult to find people to play games with since the forums will move so fast. And that's why we have groups. Groups give you smaller communities of like-minded individuals, and that's something OTK has excelled at for years. From community game nights to just a smaller selection of people to post on the forums with so you don't get a thousand meaningless replies from the public forum people that don't know what's going on with the world. So here is where clans come in. Clans have a member cap, though I do not yet know the number. When you turn a group to a clan, all members become followers and then have to join the clan. That's not what we're doing with OTK. Instead, we are going to be a little more creative and combine the clan system with the alliance system. The problem is, only group founders can mess with clans. Vinman is the current founder because he's the oldest admin. There is no way around this. I have messaged him on Xbox Live asking if he would get on BNet and leave (he can come right back in) so the title would transfer and the plan can begin. Hopefully he'll do us this favor- he was always awesome. So until then OTK cannot join clans or alliances. BUT. So what I have done is made[b][u] [url=]this group[/url].[/b][/u] Now, I'll use it for Xbox One myself, but it's open to 360 users to find games and want to represent, too. We also have [url=]OTK's PS3 and PS4 Clan[/url], so I hope you PS users will join that and mark it as your clan so you'll have access to all those sweet in-game features. I also know everyone and their mother is making their own clan right now instead of joining others. But I believe that with the clan specific achievements, it will be best to gather around already existing large groups of reliable people. Everybody in OTK has met the requirements to join, meaning they're an achievement whore or a completionist (we don't judge, I'm one too!). And for an achievement that says something like 'Finish a Raid on the hardest difficulty with your clan?' You really can't find a better group of people to pick from. So I imagine people will start grouping around OTK once the hype of making your own clan dies down, and this will give you all an even larger pool to choose from. After all, if everybody makes their own clan, nobody will get those achievements because nobody is in the same one! So if you are an Xbox One user, I would encourage you to join the clan I created and mark it as your Xbox clan (that last part is important- you need a certain number of people to mark it before it becomes active for in-game use!). If you use another system, and this especially goes to our OTK veterans but really anyone who wants to take up that initiative, talk to me or throw out some clan names we can use. Then when I am able to do alliances, we will tie all the clans to OTK's main group. Thus every clan will have a clan forum and OTK will become what is essentially a 'Super Forum' of all the clans, thus meaning you don't need to mess with two groups or anything. So yeah. That is the current gameplan. If any of you have any tips or thoughts on it, feel free to share! OTK is one of the oldest still going groups on You're all part of a very exciting time, and I cannot wait to play with you guys in Destiny.
