JediDefender Battlefront/Commando Clan
« on: August 22, 2004, 08:57 PM »
Okay I've been putting a bit of thought into the JediDefender clan and decided that we need to kick things in gear and start working on naming the clan and setting up our command structure up before the games go gold.

Membership Requirements :
The JD clan will be open to everyone in JediDefender and also anyone else that we meet along the way in-game. The only requirement is that you must have one of the games and you must be a registered member at the JediDefender forums.

Which game to buy :
The JD clan is open to people who play either Battlefront and/or Commando! We'll probably have members of the clan playing in both games, and people who play one game but not the other - but that's not a problem, we'll just need to nominate one leader and one co-leader in each game/console. So wether or not you play Battlefront or Commando - you can still be a member.

Which one should you buy? Well, Battlefront seems to be a better multi-player game at the moment, but Commando isn't looking too shabby either. I'll probably end up getting Commando because I prefer smaller scaled squad-based games. Battlefront looks to be a more epic-proportioned game - which is fine - unless you a 56k/laptop like me.  :P

How the Clan will be structured :
I suggest we go with a military ranking structure particular to whatever side we choose to represent (Empire or Alliance). I also suggest that the players' ranks be determined by both the members' playtime and the members' skill in-game.

Nominating Leaders :
Once we are certain who all will be playing, we will be able to nominate and elect one leader and one co-leader to represent the clan in each game. If we're a large enough group we'll probably expand our ranks to include a Clan staff - but I doubt we'll have those kinds of numbers necesarry. Right now it looks like we'll have a platoon-size or smaller group playing each game.

Naming the Clan :
Naming the clan is the fun part. Everybody go ahead and suggest some names for both the Alliance and the Empire - and eventually we will decide on which affiliation and which name we'll all go by. When we all (or at least a majority) agree on a name and an abbreviated tag (to wear in-game), we will all wear the tag and we'll have ourselves an official clan.

Example of an in-game abbreviated tag -

[TAG]Gen.ChrisBerry

Fill out this application please!

This will help me organize things, so answer to the best of your ability - if you've got any questions or suggestions just PM me or send me a shout through either AIM (AnAngryEwok) or Yahoo Messenger (WhiteCrowMVP) or MSN (AnAngryEwok@Hotmail.com).

  • Which game you'll be buying (Battlefront, Commando, Uncertain, or Both) :
  • The name you plan to go by in-game :
  • Which side you'd like to play for (Alliance or Empire) :
  • Suggest an Alliance clan name(s) (include the abbreviated tag) and give canon or EU background info on the unit :
  • Suggest an Empire clan name(s) (include the abbreviated tag) and give canon or EU background info on the unit :

Which game you'll be buying : Uncertain

The name you plan to go by in-game : AngryEwok

Which side you'd like to play for : Alliance - but I don't care, really.

Suggest an Alliance clan name :
Alliance 1st Reconnaissance Division, [A/1R]
The 1st Reconnaissance Division is based aboard the Alliance flagship HomeOne. The unit’s operational responsibility is the thorough reconnaissance of remote planets and moons prospect to Alliance settlement.

Suggest an Empire clan name :
450th Volunteer Division, [450thVol]
In response to Lucas' deciding that Stormtroopers are clones, I decided a Volunteer based Division would be nice to set things straight - not all Stormies are clones, damnit! The 450th Volunteer Division is an attatchment of the flagship ‘Surveyor’s Air Mobilized Infantry. Despite being part of the Air Mobile, the Volunteer Division’s duties usually consist of simple-minded traffic control or at most door-to-door searches and artillery deployment and supply shipment escorting.

Which game buying?  Battlefront for PS2
Name plan to go by?  Bobafett14
Side to play for?  either, prob empire not real important
Clan name?  I would prob suggest having something with jedidefender in it.
Good for advertising, letting people know who you are with online, also can be bad letting people know who you are online ;^)

Something simple like:
Jedidefenders1(for alliance)  TAG (JD1)
Jedidefenders2(for empire)   TAG (JD2)


I TOTALLY agree with Diddly Squat!
If you go with something other than along the lines of jedidefender you sort of lose your identity don't you? (hey why not let people know who you are)

As far as leaders, I'm brand spankin new to the whole online gaming thing(just got my PS2 online stuff this week, been palying SOCOM mostly to get preparred for Battlefront.) so this time I'll be a follower and not a leader ;^)

so Keep me in the loop, any help/tutorials is greatly appreciated here.

As far as playtime I'll be able to play mostly Fri-Sun. for sure, Mon and Thurs eve. possibly. (depends on my travel schedule for work)  once game is up and running I'm guessing people should be posting thier "playtimes" as well.

Which game you'll be buying : Battlefront, maybe. Depends if I can get a cheap PS2 somewhere, or is there a PC version?

The name you plan to go by in-game : Vator

Which side you'd like to play for : The Galactic Empire, no question

Suggest an Alliance clan name : Hedidefendaire Grenadiers (HG) (No EU or cannon background except the Alliance employed militias.)

Suggest an Empire clan name : Iron Heels (IH) (Could mean anything from Walkers to the Iron rule of the Empire)

Both games will be for PC, from what I've seen thus far.

Keep the ideas rolling, guys - I like the idea of being relative to Jedi Defender, though I don't want to be a 'Jedi' based group... The idea of naming ourselves grenadiers is pretty cool, although it'd better fit the Empire I think...

Good ideas so far.  ;)

It would just be a name, wouldn't have to be jedi based.

My thought being is that if there are 100 people playing on "rebelscum" clans.  You'd be seeing rebelscum all over the place right?  or "Galactic defenders", etc.

Same thing here.  If people logged on and saw JD or jedidefender it'd be the same.

I'd think of it as entirely FREE advertising.   If you called it the "galacticbombadiers" or something that could be any of 100 groups out there.  No connaction to the site whatsoever.

Anyhow, just my .02.

I'm gonna be logged in under bobafett14, that way people will see me on the game, so people will know who I am.   and also anyone who doesn't like me ... now gets the chance to take me out with a sniper rifle ;^)

I'm horrible with names so there won't be too much contribution from me there. Though I do think an emphasis on the "Defender" part of Jedi Defender might be a start at something. I dunno.

Which game you'll be buying : Battlefront (PC) RepCom (PC)

The name you plan to go by in-game : Jareedo

Which side you'd like to play for : Alliance prefferred

If some of us have the game on PS2, and half have it on PC, then we won't be able to play together, right? So wouldn't there need to be a JediDefender clan for both systems?

Personally, I think the clan should be named JediDefender, or even [drumroll] JediDefender.COM!

I can't find any mention of cross-platform online play. It's possible on PS2 and PC, but Xbox Live is locked down. I'm guessing no.

We need to pick a system if this is going to happen...

The JD clan is open to people who play either Battlefront and/or Commando! We'll probably have members of the clan playing in both games, and people who play one game but not the other - that's not a problem, we'll just need to nominate one leader and one co-leader in each game. So wether or not you play Battlefront or Commando - you can still be a member.

The same applies for what system you choose to play with, but if you all have a PC that can handle it - the PC will be the best buy. So, if you are debating on getting it for PS2/XBox or PC, definately choose the PC. There are alot of customizing options that you can play around with where you couldn't if you had the PS2. Example - custom maps, custom skins (uniforms, faces). This will give the game a much longer life, trust me. There are tons of reasons why you should choose the PC, to me that's the main one - longer play-life.

I'll suggest another name, this one is sort of an homage to the Call of Duty clan I play in. How about 'The Raiders' for a clan name? It'd match whatever game you play and whatever team you choose to play with - Imperials, Republics, Rebels, and Confederates can all have a 'Raider' group...

Our tag could be [R1/#] (Raiders 1st Battalion, # Company)

Company designation would go like this - if you play Battlefront, you're in 1st/Able Company, [R1/1], if you play Republic Commando, you're in 2nd/Bravo Company, [R1/2].

Just trying to squeeze out some suggestions.  :-\

I'm still not sure what to do thus far. I am going to wait till the system requirements are out. I want to make sure my PC is up to par. Hate to buy a game & shell out more $$$ to make it run properly.

I also have to reformat my PC, I have way to much junk in it & my memory is well... :-\

Well, I've got a PS2 and an X-Box, and my PC is probably too slow to run this game properly. Since a new PC isn't exactly on the horizon right now, and a bunch of my buddies are buying this for PS2, I think I'll just go that route.

Let me know if any of you are going the PS2 route.

Just a note for you PC guys thinking about this over a console...  There's gonna be a LOT of action in this game which means a lotta burden on your machine's performance.

If you're thinking PC i think you'll need something beefy, what with all the players and stuff.

I don't know if I'm buying or not.  I'm debating still.  I think I may go with X-Box because, at this point, my PC is showing age...  I need a new graphic card, and it seems Windows 98 just ain't cutting it anymore as an OS.  Fortunately upgrades are rare to truly keep up with modern gaming, but I'm at the point I likely need to, just to even get a game loaded on my PC.
