Hi all

not sure who knows of Reddit.com , but there is a Sub-Reddit for Defiance (game and show) with 4000 subscribers. and over the last week or so (since PC went F2P) there have been lots of people new to the game asking for help, some even asking me via PM for a clan suggestion to join.

I play the EU xbox so can only list who is around on that one.

i want to make a list for Reddit (as im sure around july 15th will see another surge in people) of clans on the Eu and NA servers of Xbox,PS3 and PC that are welcoming to noobs, will help them learn to play and so on.

also what would be good if there is any clans on the 6 areas that are specific about things, ie only female members, or only french speaking, or german speaking. so i can suggest more specific clans to people.


I wont take offers from any old member of a clan, has to be founder or leader in that clan for me to believe that they have a say on the clans view point (ie some clans do not want new players, they only want high ego)

Let me just say as a new player thanks for your effort and trying to help us out. Would you also like Ps3 clans also? Only see pc and xbox in the post

no problem in the help, i did mention PS3, but only once... but all i want really is the platform and server its on.

might help to have number of members (aprox)
and clan rating (how many things do you have at level 10?)
but they are not required, just that your friendly and wanna help the new people coming in, as the quicker they learn how to play , i.e. dont open the WM until enough people, and dont use a BMG on him, the better time we will all have.

I've started collecting clans for Defiance Data to promote for each platform and region, haven't had too many signups yet.

I'm also working on a selection of guides for new players to help orientate them with game mechanics as well as encounter specific guides (well other people are working on those and I'll feature them)

Might be nice to consolidate our lists instead of having separate ones on the subreddit (where I am active too :p)

Always happy to take in new people and show em the ropes :D Prospects is new so stats are low but as follows Arkfalls 5, Sieges 2, Challenges 1, emergencies 2, conflict sites 4, coop maps 2, PvP 1, And ark breaks 2. Roughly 50 members.

So which clan are you offering for people to join?

SAMCRO Prospects - RobinDeeBanks

or

SAMCRO Sons of Anarchy - Alastar Crowley

or both? i guess prospects is for new players to see how they are, then they can join main clan after?

First off, thanks for your work on the Defiance subreddit! We really appreciate it. :)

You can find clan index threads for the different platforms here on the forums for reference (hat-tip to Bentu for the diligent curation of these lists):

Sorry for lack of clarifying. Everyone goes through prospects first. People who stick around and have good attitudes and are fun to play with and all that good stuff move on to main :)

Gotta show em more ropes please. I have found that lately a lot of SAMCRO players have been breaking the locks early on the WM lol.

Long lists don't really help, it needs to be further split down by region and a select few clans highlighting with more information. There is no telling of activity, size or recruitment policy hence the promoted ones for new player recruitment :p

That list has always been there, and it didn't help me find a clan, I wasn't going to randomly click on clan names in the hope of finding something special.

Then take your thumb out of your ***** & compile one :p

It's almost like I'm working on it :p hopefully your tone isn't as negative as it sounds, it's just that indexes aren't as useful as you might think especially when they get super long.

Edit: I'm guilty of this as well, which is why most of my new designed pages feature sections and summaries lot more prominently.

The clan indexes are just lists of clans who have posted on the forums and wished to be on them. I doubt that half are still active but are there anyway should the founders wish to bump them.
Admittedly they're not comprehensive as I don't intend on spending my play time chasing down clan leaders plus I don't have access to pc or ps3 systems.

Edit.

For anyone seeking an active clan I'd suggest just viewing the first and second pages of your specific system.
