Hey everyone,
A solid group of people have come together form The Eighth Race, a steam based Defiance clan. Since we all used Steam, I thought it would be great to run the clan through steam.

Our goal is to have a great group of gamers to play and maximize the whole Defiance experience, using Steam to help organize.

You don't need to buy the game through steam, just use steam regularly. If you do that, and treat people with basic respect, you're who we are looking for!

We have over 80 members and are always recruiting! We have active forums and friendly discussions - if you're looking to surround yourself with good people, this is the place to be.

Hey everyone,
Me and a few friends started a clan called The Eighth Race. Since we all used Steam, I thought it would be great to run the clan through steam.

You don't need to buy the game through steam, just use steam regularly. If you do that, and aren't a ****** bag, you're who we are looking for!

We have a 30 man vent server based in Chicago that we will be using for the beta weekend and when the game goes live. If you are still looking for a clan, hit us up during the next beta weekend.

Do you like to use Steam for communicating with your online friends? Are you looking for a clan? The Eighth Race is looking for regular Steam users to join us in the effort to have fun playing Defiance.
We are a US based clan and have our own voice chat (TeamSpeak and Ventrilo are both currently available, which one will be decided before launch).
Join us if you want to join a fantastic, active clan that is excited to play Defiance.

hey I am an avid user of steam, if I play a game on PC and I can buy it on steam I do. haha atm I think I have like 35 games on steam, anyways was wondering if you guys are growing so much how is a 30 person vent server going to hold everyone? on a side note, I have been testing defiance since alpha and I really enjoy the game and the changes they have been making, I will be playing at release and am looking for a guild to call home. My play style is normally solo play, but want a guild group for running scenarios, world events, pvp, and to just goof off. I really hate pugging because you just seem to get the shallow end of the gene pool everytime.
I am 28 years old and am past my hardcore wanting to be server first mentality, I really just want to enjoy the game to the fullest and looking for a group that is the same.

We'll upgrade the vent server the minute it seems that its not big enough - setting up a new vent server can be done very quickly. Even if our group is 80+, only a proportion of that will be online at the same time, and a proportion of those people will be on vent. We'll have a much better idea of our VOIP needs once we are in game. Rest assured, your Ventrilo needs will be met.

so do you think, the rewards on steam are going to be unlocked before it releases? its in 2 weeks and not even into reward 1.

Unless the numbers for rewards 2 and 3 are much smaller, I think its pretty safe to say we won't be unlocking those. I do think there is a chance that reward 1 is unlocked - a really good chance if the beta weekend gives players a solid experience. But to be perfectly honest, I don't know - it jumped a lot today, but it still may not be enough.

Remember, though, even without the tier 1 rewards, the preorder bonuses are the exactly same on Steam as the other retailers (Steam vendor specific weapon is a sniper rifle).
