    First off I came up with this idea just off the top of my head. Let me know what you think.

    So you might be wondering what would a "gang" or "club" would do in a FLOOD server. Well, we could be a "section" in Devinity. Gang member will always team/help other members. Gang member will have a set of "Rules" you must follow by or you could be removed. Some simple rules could be Respect members, Always team, Have a "Tag" at the front of your name. If you have any more questions ask.

    I made this because I always see players being left out.

    Now I'm thinking about starting a "Gang". The name of my gang will be, The Fire Of Devinity ( Got something better? Suggest!) Ok so now what? Well If you want to join you're going to have to follow some "Rules"

    1. If a fellow gang member is on the server and wants to "Team", You may accept his offer or decline it. I expect you to help fellow members when they are striving for a goal.
    2. You may have a "Tag" or a "Name" related to the Gang.
    3.If you create a team with fellow gang members, please have the "Team name" "FOD" [Fire of Devinity (Still looking for a better name)]
    4. BE ON MY FRIENDS LIST
    5.Don't EVER team with other Gangs, If there ever are any.
    6. Gang members comes before players.
    7. Don't break any of Devinity Flood or Forum Rules.

    Simple right? Wrong. If you wish to join you must fill out a TINY application.
    1. Why do you wish to join this gang? -
    2. What brought you to Devinity? -
    3. Age. -
    4. Tell the gang about yourself. -

    I will update this thread later on.

    I like the idea in general but I'm not sure if I fully support it for the fact there will likely be a lot of players that will rage/cry to me when they are kicked/denied entry to a gang.

    It also opens up the possibility that people will abuse the system and make "racist/inappropriate" gangs to troll others. Yet another thing I would not exactly be looking forward to dealing with. In which case we may have to implement our own admin privileges to edit/destroy such gangs and then we'd be back to my first worry, the crying.

    It's not a bad idea in general but I think it would need to be refined a lot more to both avoid abuse and future problems.

    Continuing from my last post, I will also bring up some positive parts to this feature and some things that I think might be beneficial.

    • We could use the "Gang system" to have a separate set of leader boards for other gangs to compete against. Perhaps once a month give a bonus to the best gangs.

    • We could have monthly goals for gangs to complete as a challenge to other gangs. EG: Rounds won, most achievements awarded, Highest dollar earned.

    • A level system for gangs

    The possibilitys are endless. I'm not sure if @Donkie and @Bayrock agree but we shall see.

    Well I said in some part of my post. You must Follow the forums and Server rules. Being racist would be breaking those rules. Now about people not being accepted into gangs. There are a lot of people I don't like I have to admit. But I will almost always welcome anyone. I'm seeing this as an opportunity to get more people active on the forums. I can fully see where you are coming from though. If there are other gangs and they choose not to accept people, I believe that's there decision and If they cant accept then that is there problem not the communities. I could go on typing more reasons but I will end it here.

    Very lovely guy. You will be the FIRST member to join |FOD|. Your position will be up to you, but if I feel you don't have what it takes for that role, I will asign one

    I would also like to say. I want this thread clean after here. No saying I like your idea. You can have questions and applications. I want to be able to have it organized to have track of who does what and who ask where. Lol that made no sense but please follow my guidelines of my post, If you don't ill ask a forum admin to remove your post.

    You're a friendly player. You will be accepted. I will put you as a Trusted Member. You can put the |FOD| Tag before your name on steam if you want. If you see other |FOD| please help them out. If they wanna team, go ahead. Although you can decline.

    I've said multiple times that I don't want any permanent teams/gangs system. The way teams work now is fine.

    If anything, having this type of system will add more discriminating since there can/will be huge drama spark cause of kicking people out of gangs and stuff.

    I agree with Donkie, it's to much to go through for such little that it would accomplish.

    When I first made this it was like a little side "gang", not interfering with with the regular team system. I was more or so just name something I thought would be cool. If this was to continue I could see that some people would abuse it. So I'm going to end it here.Thank you for your feed back donkie :)

    If you could like lock this thread so no more comments can be posted that would be cool :)
