Autumn Update

The leaves changing colour bring not just the end of summer but the start of a new gaming schedule for our group!  The last few months have featured a broad range of activity as some of us clobbered away at our growing queue of Steam games we haven’t played yet as well as hunkering down with a core group of titles that (caught or have kept) our attention.

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds continues to capture imaginations to such a degree that our community has resisted the idea of a scheduled, regular night for the game: largely because they already play it every day!  We have a very large variety of gamers putting time in to PUBG throughout the day, if you’re looking for a good group to play with just pop in to our Discord server and send a message to dox (or post in #battlegrounds or #general) asking to be introduced and we’ll have you set up in short order with a group or partner that you can get tactical with.

Another regular activity is the constant amount of entertainment that the charismatic Overwatch title delivers to our try-pants-wearing-casual crack shots.  Still continuing to largely eschew competitive mode allows for a bunch of interactions and great mixing between our community members,  you can find any combination of our regulars like cc//Fast Eddie, cc//fuegoredux, cc//Rage, cc//Trashcanman and/or cc//Vengeance bouncing around and shooting their way through rounds with a really great group of visitors.  The good times keep pouring in, if you’re looking to see what the ‘try pants’ movement is about then follow same instructions as above, pop in to Discord and get started!

Beyond that, as we aim to complete and define our autumn gaming schedule we’ve got a couple of new nights popping up.  The first one “Free First Mondays” (working title) is an event that pops up on the first Monday of every month exclusively featuring free games.  This week we tried out Black Squad and will be announcing next months selection in the coming weeks.  Additionally we’ve got the beginning of a series of strictly tactical weekly events that will take participants through engagements in titles like Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, Insurgency, Day of Infamy, Rainbow 6 Siege and more.

Hey, in case it’s not clear: everyone is welcome to these so just reach out and join in, there’s a lot of fun to be had!  We cater to career/family oriented adults that are looking for a competitive experience without the time sink – if you have your own requests and ideas we’re also very open to that, just get in touch.  See you in Discord!

Overwatch, Gathering 2016 and BF4 buddies

Our relentless march forward together in to gaming history continues with more exciting developments, hold on tight because in no particular order:

owOverwatch has taking the gaming scene by storm and looks like it’s here to stay! We meet Blizzard’s first foray in to providing an FPS title with optimism and are committing ourselves to staying interested and in-tune to their development for the title. With that we are proud to announce that long time Crack Clan supporter and member GuGu (originally from our TF2 campaign) rekindles his activity and is put in to place as director of our European Overwatch campaign. cc//GuGu had this to say:

Hi fellow players ! I am GuGu, former Crack Clan TF2 player and now leading the brand new Overwatch Crack Clan team. I am proud to compete under this banner and be part of this great family again. We work hard to be successful throughout this long journey and hope we will bring you many victories. We are currently preparing ourselves for the many competitions to come, so stay in touch and cya on the game !

We really look forward to what the boys can do and are keen to support them as they build the Overwatch future for Crack Clan – congratulations, welcome and stay tuned for more news as we’ll be announcing both competitive and casual developments.

cc-article-gatheringIn more news, we have officially selected and announced the details and location of our next annual tradition of Gathering offline to further the brilliant legacy and camaraderie of our group. This year we will be featuring a mixed, gradient, week-long adventure that allows people to join based on their outdoor experience: it begins with a multi-day hike through the Appalachians, continues to an exclusive cabin (complete with stocked pond and firing range) and culminates in an incredible weekend hosted at the house of by long-time member cc//Hogtyd. Don’t walk, RUN to announce your participation in this once-a-year magical experience and get in to discord to get details; flights are booking up and car shares are filling up.

bf-mondays-knifey-knifeyLast but not least we would like to extend both a special thanks and reminder about our ongoing BF4 activities. Every Monday (as a minimum) we still plug away with Battlefield 4 — what can we say, we’re enthusiasts of the franchise! — recently we’ve taken on a dance card with [OTC]; The Old Timers Clan, a great group of people who joined us on a private server to deliver fierce 10v10 action without the usual clan hang ups. Close rounds, great teamwork and attitude has really juiced things up and given us all something new to look forward to. Don’t be shy and get in touch if you want to include yourself in these activities — it’s the best way to ensure sportsmanship, competition, no hackers and all-round good times without all of the other stuff that clans usually carry with them. Connect up with any of us to get rockin’ and rollin’!
