Crack Clan on the Brink

Brink has been making the rounds from a lot of pre-launch hype to controversial reviews and oodles of speculation. With the North American release just barely behind us we’re proud to announce the creation of our first competitive roster consisting of talent which already holds strong COD4, TF2, QL and ET backgrounds. The following players will be representing Crack Clan in what we hope will be a successful, long-lived campaign both on and offline:

  • cc//DeTh
  • cc//Karka
  • cc//RedShift
  • cc//Dennisthemenace
  • cc//Slnt
  • cc//Paintrain
  • cc//The Black Scarab
  • cc//Unlucky

We also anticipate the creation of an additional NA squad with EU support following shortly thereafter. We invite you to join us on our public server (brink.crackclan.com:27015) to get some games in and meet the players!

Team Captain DeTh had the following quip to share: “We are excited to bring Brink into Crack Clan Family of games, and will carry its name with respect across our campaign of matches and tournaments. See you all in game.”

We’ve never officially adopted a new game so rapidly which just might be testament to Splash Damage’s team-friendly offering and the initial community reaction. Good luck to the new squad and stay tuned for more news from the Ark!

cc//13yr anniversary

Today we pass another star on the calendar that marks the point where we put on our birthday hats and high-five one another for all the good times we’ve experienced together! It’s hard for me to believe that we’re setting out on our fourteenth year as an e-sports organization and, frankly, it’s just as hard for me to consider life without the Clan.

Countless thank-yous to the dedicated, hard-working and hard-playing massive that continues to clock hours in the pursuit of fun, enlightenment and victory – none of it is even remotely possible without our die-hard members, our opponents, the lovers, the haters, the admins and the community at large. Especially deepest gratitude to those that try to better the scene, the ones that would rather lend a hand than drop the smack, those that would build with the big picture in mind not just their own intentions. Online gaming is where its at and we salute the supporters of that notion!

It was another awesome year with great placements, internal tournaments, title releases, collaborative gaming, movie nights and more. The Crack Clan horizon is again set to include exciting new competitive frontiers, gatherings and competitions, all flavoured with that overall camaraderie that is built form the sum of a groups’ parts. Thanks again and happy birthday Crack Clan!
