Initial Information- Hello I am Pfc. Bear of Bravo Company, Romeo Platoon in the Dropshock Brigade. Here at the Dropshock Brigade we strive for professionalism. We are one of the most organized, well structured, friendliest, and best lead clans in all of Halo.
History- The Dropshock Brigade got its start back on Halo 3. We have followed the games throughout the years and wish to begin recruiting for the next edition: Halo 4. We have always done our best to upkeep our values of good sportsmanship, and a strong bond between platoons. What started three years ago, has now grown into an immense army of over 100 strong. Our Roster consists of 4 North American Platoons, 3 European Platoons, and 2 Australian Platoons. Despite the timezone differences, we always find time to play together. Our forces could always use another HellJumper. Register today, and try your hand at Enlistment. Here at DSB, we go,
“Feet First Into Hell”.
II. Registration and Enlistment:
Enlistment Form: To join the brigade, you must first register on our website and fill out the Enlistment Form. Make sure that you fill out every form in great detail. The enlistment process is a simple screening to determine who is truly committed to be a part of the Brigade. The best way to prove your worth is to be active, both on the forums and Halo: Reach.
Sponsorship- The first step to joining is meeting people. By meeting people and learning more about the Brigade, you can get Sponsored. Sponsorship may only be attained after three days. It simply means a Brigade member has decided to place their faith in you. Your sponsor will be there to help you every step of the way. They will play with you, introduce you to other members, and generally show you the ropes.
Boot camp/Entrance Exam- After another four days -seven days total- you are allowed to take your boot camp. Boot camp is simply a determination of your teamwork skills, and how well you can callout. Your sponsors responsibility is to teach you callouts so that you may successfully pass boot camp. The final part of the enlistment process is the Entrance Exam. The exam is a simple test of your knowledge of the Field Manual.
III. What We Have To Offer:
Gaming- Unlike a lot of clans, we play together very often. We play Matchmaking a lot, the playlist varying on how many members are on. If we begin to get 7-8 or more in a lobby, then we switch over to custom games and have fun. We have game nights usually on weekends at around 8pm (EST time) and play fun customs.
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.
Entertainment- We regularly schedule clan matches to gain recognition among other clans, and mixers to form strong relationships between clans. We also have a nice Chatroom where you talk and meet new members. Make sure you keep the chat respectful. Also, we now feature OGame, or as we call it, Dusk Online.
Organization- We are a well organized clan with a Roster. Personnel are organized into divisions based upon where they live, and what time zone they are in. We have a wide variety of forums to discuss different things with other members.
Promotions- Promotions in the Dropshock Brigade are given for either a show of activity, loyalty, dedication, work ethic, and leadership skills. Do NOT ask for a promotion. Doing so will most likely result in a demotion or loss of merit. The detailed Ranking Structure explains everything about each rank.
If you decide to enlist, please remember to list Bear as your recruiter. If you have any questions check out our FAQ section.
