SAO are recruiting to create a competitive team (Confogl) team for playing clanmatches and the likes with.
Above: The SAO Confogl L4D2 Vs Squad (and Sub). Which one are you...?
now before you all get excited and start picking which costume you want, you may want to read what will be expected of you if you are to play confogl.....
Okay, so..... Due to popular demand, and actual REAL demand, we are setting this up (no really), for real this time.
SAO is a casual clan, but there are a select few who want to play competitively under the SAO umbrella (which is awesome!). We are looking for more people who are interested in playing L4D2 competitively (which is a mode called confogl).....
What the fuck is confogl?
http://code.google.com/p/confogl/ see that link.... its a hardened version of L4D2 specially for playing competitions/clan matches with. Its much harder than regular L4D2, and certainly isnt for everyone.
I wanna play!
Great, i thought you'd say that....HOWEVER! There are some things you should know before you decide you want to be part of the competitive side of SAO . Be aware, this won't be usual "casual" gaming like you are used to on SAO, this will be competitive training and competitive play, with the sole aim of training to be better players while working on tactics and teamplay. Here is a checklist of what is involved in playing on the SAO competitive team:
1. You need to be skilled, with an attitude to improve yourself: FACT: To win, we need good players, both as individual players and as team players, you NEED to be able to identify your own weaknesses and proactively try to improve your game (such as skeeting, deadstops, hunting ability, etc etc). This includes using "training" maps such as hunter training etc to improve your game. No player is perfect, and play with the aim of improving yourself constantly.
2. You need to be able to attend both training and clan matches. Theres no point being in a competitive team if you cant make the matches. Attending the training is as important as it is the matches themselves. playing practise matches with your team mates helps you gel and improve your teamplay with the individuals that make up your team. Clan matches can vary in time due to time zones, and training matches can be arranged to suit the majority of our members
3. You need to read up on confogl, or have a good understanding of how confogl works. both in terms of modifications to the gameplay, and the effects that has on how you play.
4. You need to be able to make decisions that will benefit the team, such as when to run, when to get your teammates up, when to sacrifice yourself, when to put our best players forward in situations of matches that rely on our AAA game without being offended.
5. Actual players who are on the team will be expected to try their best and play competitively at all times (when training or playing confogl matches) and will gel together to be the best competitive team SAO has to offer. There will be no personal issues, grievances or favouratism, and players should consider the best interests of our competitive players.
This is NOT for you if:
1. You dont like confogl
2. You dont like competitive play
3. You dont like it when games get heated (competitive matches can get VERY heated, but you just gotta stick with it)
4. You dont have the time to dedicate to turning up to both training games AND clan matches
5. You cant be bothered to genuinely train/practise to make yourself a better player in aspects of l4d2 (hunting/skeeting/dead stopping/etc)
6. You might have to bow for a match out if it makes sense team wise to put someone else who is a stronger player in the competitive circle forward as our best available team.
7. You rage, at all. As you all know raging is extremely much frowned upon in SAO, but raging in competitive games simply will not be tolerated. Raging from a competitive game will result in being removed from the competitive team.
8. You dont like losing. We are new to the competitive scene. its going to be tough, and we may well find ourselves getting wiped all over the place by more experienced teams as we find out feet. This is to be expected, so suck it up. If you dont like it, competitive play most likely isnt for you.
We are looking for an unspecified amount of competitive players from within the clan, all competitive players MUST be SAO members, meaning players who are not SAO members but wish to join our competitive team must join the clan first.
If you've read all of the above, and can think you can dedicate your time and resources, and think you can play L4D2 with the big boys in a competitive environment, please comment below showing your interest. If we get more competitive players than we need, we will need to cut the players to a smaller amount. again, if you dont get picked please dont be offended, and please dont let this stop you from improving your confogl game.
Stay Tuned for more info, and PLEASE post below if you are interested, as if you dont post here, you wont be considered for competitive play.
