I am proud to announce that BFA is now officially deployed as clan, fighting for the Soviet Union on the War map!
Since this Clan was conceived on the 19th of July, roughly 6 Weeks ago, we've made tremendous leaps forward. Thanks to Devilman99 and his Soviet Bastards Community website we were able to acquire our own Forum, Website and TS3! We have, from the very beginning, laid a strict emphasis on training and tactics, resulting in multiple Guides and other material readily available for our new recruits. Furthermore we were able to develop our very own, unique play-style and organizational structures, the likes of which I have not seen in any Soviet clan before. I am more than confident that the future of this clan will be a bright one.
Out of the 25 Recruits that we had sign up in the past 6 weeks, only 7 have made the cut and gained full BFA membership. This is a washout rate of roughly 72%, or 3 out of 4 recruits! While this may seem like a lot, I'd like to stress that we have high standards for candidates while at the same time giving everyone an equal opportunity. Even a player that has only been playing for a single day can become a BFA member, given he is willing to integrate into our team, grind out his characters and learn.
And I seriously believe, no, I know that this is why this clan will be successful in the long run, because we defy the common notion of elitism and closed societies such as zBV, which fail to tap the most precious resource in this game, its new players!
Finally I'd like to congratulate all members of BFA that have made the cut, that have shown character, integrity and the willingness to fight in spite of overwhelming odds. I have worn many clan tags in my decade of gaming, but the BFA tag is one of the few that truly mean something to me. I hope you feel the same.
Congratulations to : Devilman99, GRINGOJS, Crni_Gavran, Aaron260, Laicorum, Greenpotato!
While recruitment and build up will continue to a lesser extent, we will now begin contacting all Soviet Clan leaders and offer our assistance as dedicated Paratroopers. BFA will deploy wherever we can help the most and try to help tipping the balance of the battle into the Soviets favor. After all, this game is about team-play, comrades! Let us work together!
Thank you for your time and see you in battle!
