The BastardsThis is a Recruitment Poster of The Bastards a professional gaming community. We started out as a regimented Planetside 2 Clan that has been around since Closed Beta and have progressively been branching out to other games and through tireless work and polish seek to become a professional multi gaming community that approaches games with the same level of professionalism and attention to detail as any small professional Clan out there while retaining a large community to generally 'play stuff and talk shit with' outside of sessions, and if there is enough interest in house to form a Chapter for an upcoming game that expansion will be investigated on a case by case basis.
"They shall be my finest warriors, these men who give of themselves to me. Like clay I shall mould them, and in the furnace of war forge them. They will be of iron will and steely muscle. In great armour shall I clad them and with the mightiest guns will they be armed. They will be untouched by plague or disease, no sickness will blight them. They will have tactics, strategies and machines so that no foe can best them in battle. They are my bulwark against the Terror. They are the Defenders of Humanity. They are my Space Marines and they shall know no fear."
What the hell is this crap?
What do you play?Our gaming is split into 2 categories, Formal and Non Formal, Formal Chapters are where we go the extra mile and strive to be the best at that particular game, Non Formal is very simply just relaxed gaming where we get together and shoot shit, how we approach each game depends on the communities general consensus on that game. Every Formal Chapter starts simply and gradually we add add standard operating procedures piece by piece based on extensive in game knowledge as while a lot of things sound good in theory, we like to do what works. Chapter applications are separate from the main app, so once your a member head over and file one for whatever interests you.
Formal Chapters :
Planetside 2 - 75th Bastards Regiment - Mechanized Infantry (with additional specialist units such as Spec Ops/Armour/Air)
Star Citizen - Cossack Imperium - Mercenary and Bounty Hunting specialists with an additional Economic Wing for casual players
Non Formal Chapters :
World of Tanks
League of Legends
we're also scouting out a few other avenues but I won't go into those here.
What sort of suckers are you after?Straight up, we're trying to build a champion team, not a team of champions, 1 out of 10 guys pack the gear to serve as a Bastard, we want to skip over the other 9, they are a waste of time and effort. We've done our dash with sooks, undedicated chumps, guys who join then go missing, sissy's who join a regimented crew then cry when they are expected to play with the crew not on the other side of the map, people who expect us to wipe their bum for them and don't even show the simple initiative to get ingame Outfit invites and shit like that. We want dedicated men with a fire in their belly and know that to become the best isn't easy, ya gotta work at it constantly, and it requires every member of the team working in unison to achieve it, not just guys blindly following. If you are unable or unwilling to achieve this, fuck off and go hold hands with some hippy combine or commit seppeku, we're about getting shit done and if your not your not willing to pull your own weight then don't waste our time.
When do you play?Scheduled sessions are on a per chapter basis, though we have people in game outside of scheduled sessions also, we were founded by an Australian but the bulk of our members are American, so name a time of day or night, there is a Bastard shooting someone somewhere.
Why are you called The Bastards?Even though we are all gamers who like tactical and professional play when on a scheduled session we are also all scoundrels and like to intersperse sessions and the forums with as many bad jokes as possible when things are quiet, but when things start to heat up again we get straight back into business. If I was gonna cliche it a bit I'd say we aim for a 'relaxed atmosphere but a professional attitude'.
Does this glorified Militia have any rules?to be short, not really, we technically have one formal rule but that's about it (link), because we're all roughneck cunts we can take it as well as we can dish it, not saying we don't hassle each other, but we don't cry about it either, 99% of the time there is no problems amongst members, and on the rare occasions there is lets just say it doesn't last long around our dear leader who is not one to fuck around.
