General round-up

Hi folks! With summer winding down (booo) we’re seeing the seasonal pick up of activity starting to ramp so I’m going to try to summarize a few things here and there to keep us in the loop. We’re also burning this new site in with an open beta so I’ll also be sprinkling tips and tricks across these kinds of updates so make sure you check it out to get the most from the Crack Clan experience!

TF2: Our rosters are pretty solid at this point and we’re really excited to put forth another awesome EU Premiere team (how many years has it been?) to kick off another ETF2L Season with the first match coming up featuring @Retsh0ck (demo), @Admirable (med), @Tviq and @Smzi (scouts), Ipz and @Minimoose (soldiers), stay tuned for more details (they’ll show up here, on the calendar and we’ll probably be streaming it live on the front page). Of course it doesn’t end there because we’ve also got EU Blue taking on Division 2 with their first official match of the season featuring @Ashy (med), @EleAbides and @TreeToon (soldiers), @Bucket (demo), Fresh and @LillCeder (scouts) — good luck and have fun boys!

GW2: honestly, I’ve never really been an MMO guy and pretty much sneered at it from my lofty FPS throne, but I’ve got to break down and say that actually giving GW2 a try has revealed some gaming possibilities that I hadn’t really considered before and am really enjoying. The concept of pitting servers full of hundreds (thousands?) of players against each other in a persistent, on-going battle really gives strategic thought a bit of a test. We’ve got @justice, @Pockets and @Smithy running the show over there and gearing up for an awesome WvWvW campaign, high5s to all the new folks joining us on this! For those still on the fence about it I’d humbly suggest that talking to some of our guys or even checking out reviews and videos may be worth your time, we’re still recruiting!

New site front-end

Increased activity and requirement for organizing everything that’s going on at Crack Clan has required that we transition to a new system that’ll handle our front-end activity for all our members – exciting stuff! – while we do so we hope you’ll demonstrate continued patience through what is, effectively now an open beta and the kinks get hammered out over the next while.

Members: you’ll almost certainly have to update/recover your password, but creating a new account is OK too since we have a method of merging old profiles with new so the lazy might want to go ahead and do that anyway 🙂
