Three helpful necessities to becoming a Dragonwolf

Discussion in 'The Dragon Wolves Recruitment Forum' started by Hyncharas, 1 Apr 2007.

  1. I know this may sound really stupid to some applicants, but in order to enjoy great games with the CDL there are a number of things you should consider:
    • Testing your system for a game -- there are two kinds of tests. First there is the one most people use when they compare their spec to a game's recommended notice. The problem with this, however, is that developers sometimes leave stuff out of their initial things (or always), and then when the final game comes out it differs from the specs of a demo, or - in the case of an MMO - a beta version...

      Then there is the second option; actually checking to see if a game works with your hardware and software efficiently. To do this, there are a number of sites who specialise in this area (System Requirements Lab, for example) that will run a check to confirm whether you system is capable.
    • Keeping in contact -- even after the evaluation period, a majority of us use Teamspeak Client to remain in contact whether we are playing a game or not. This is so we all know where we are in relation to each other's ingame-position, and it's just plain simpler than typing when you're getting shot at!
    • READ THE CLAN RULES -- I'll have to admit, I didn't read the rules myself all that much when I joined :eek: though there are things that are considered appropriate as a clan-member and things that are not. One example is a previous game we've used; an MMOFPS called PlanetSide. During this time we were part of the Terran Republic faction, though the game allowed the use of more than one empire for each player. Unfortunately some bad things happened during this, which nearly put an end to our fun gaming.

      Now, a similar system was also employed for people who play World of Warcraft since the game's inception...

      However, given the amount of abuse players use by having "alternates" (a different character for another, opposing faction), you can understand helping others to undermine the clan's efforts while in a game isn't really a good idea! This is why members of our clan decided that for PlanetSide we would blanket-play only one faction for all members and for WoW we kept the Alliance and Horde areas on separate servers and TS-channels, so we don't get in each other's way.
    These may sound silly, but it prevents the usual arguments and helps us to get along while still be a famliy-oriented clan. I suggest you consider these while making your application.
