Join The Dropshock Brigade (Clan)

Hello I am Specialist ODST Venomous of Charlie Company in the Dropshock Brigade, I’d like to offer you a chance to be in one of the most mature, active and structured clan around. Currently we have 36 members who are from different parts of the world, whether its the U.S., U.K., Canada, or Australia. We have three companies, basically three sections of the clan that you can be put into depending on your location. Our clan is filled with great members who like to have fun and be competitive, sometimes at the same time :P. If this clan interests you, please read on:
I. Basics
Introduction: We are the Dropshock Brigade. We are the best the UNSC has to offer. We are the protectors of earth and all of her colonies. We are the fastest, strongest, and craziest in the universe. We are an all volunteer outfit.

Motto: "I am an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper. Those words may be used often but we are unique. We are the best trained, best equipped, and craziest outfit in this collection of colonies we call the UNSC. I will defend her to my last breath and give my enemies the death that can only be provided under the tread of my black combat boots. I am no normal marine. I push my mind, body, and soul further than most human beings ever will. I instill fear in my enemies as I drop from the heavens like the wrathful gods of Greek lore. I show no mercy. I show no fear. I am a UNSC Helljumper and I go feet first."
"Feet First Into Hell".

II. Enlistment

Enlisting: There are 3 easy steps into getting into the Brigade.

1. Register on the site. Please use your gamertag or something similar to it as your username.

2. After registering on the site, please fill out the Enlistment Form and then click submit. Make sure to fill everything out and read the page following the form. Also add ODST Venomous as your recruiter.

3. Attain the minimum merit requirement(varies by age). The merit system is a type of points system in which you are rewarded for posting in our forums. You must attain 100 merit before taking boot camp.

Merit Earnings

+3 merit per new thread
+2 merit per reply
+1 merit per shoutbox post

Failure to heed to a warning will result in loss of merit or overall denial of your enlistment request.

III. What We Have To Offer
Ribbons- In the Brigade, a ribbon signifies a soldier who has achieved a certain requirement and has been rewarded a ribbon for it. These ribbons are shown on your site profile. You may see yours and other ODST’s ribbons on the side of each post. To receive these awards is a very great honor.

Promotions- Promotions in the Dropshock Brigade are given upon either the completion of a training, or the achievement of a quota. Be active, loyal, show leadership, achieve merit, etc and you may just receive a promotion. Do NOT ask for a promotion. Doing so will most likely result in a demotion or loss of merit.

Organization- We are a well organized clan with a Roster. Personnel are organized into divisions based upon where they live, and what timezone they are in. We have a wide variety of forums to discuss different things with other members.

Gaming- Unlike a lot of clans, we do actually play games with members. We play Matchmaking a lot, the playlist varying on how many members are on. If we begin to get 7-8 or more we switch over to custom games and have fun. We have game nights usually around weekends at nights(EST time) and play whatever.
