Clan Spotlight: RDDT 7/22/13

Дата: 22.07.2013 16:17:46
Quemapueblos: Hello and welcome to the first Clan Spotlight! We have an interview with a clan you might have heard of RDDT, The Front Lines of the Internet. Recently their sub forums reached 10,000 subscribers!
They were kind enough to hang around and answer questions from this thread! So if you want to pick their brains about clan wars, clan development or whatever now is your chance!
You can check the portal for the abridged version and below is our extended interview.
Ledif - I am the current commander of RDDT. I joined when Vorkosigan was commander about a year ago and have been doing Clan Wars since then
Vorkosigan - I am one of the battle callers and strategist and FC, I used to be the commander of RDDT after DamienJax
DamienJax - I am the current commander of NRWL, which is the sister clan to RDDT. I was one of the original commanders of RDDT that got us into Clan Wars with the help of Vork. I moderate the world of tanks
subreddit.
Bryant21 - I help run the World of Tanks subreddit and I’m also the deputy commander of RDDT
QUESTIONS:
When and how did your clan form?
Vorkosigan - RDDT has been around since the game started but it was sorta a social clan until, December 2011, Damien, myself and TransparentTape, started getting things a little bit more organized, and started kicking out people out who weren't showing up. Started doing things like actually training, and then in February 2012, we began landing in Africa and we started winning.
DamienJax - Well at the time the sub-Reddit only have 150 to 200 subscribers. We did the Ultimate Conquest Tournament to kinda get practice and we got farther than we expected in that. Eventually we got everybody up to tier 9s at least and we landed in Africa and the very first night we landed we took land.
Vorkosigan - It took us probably about 2 months; we had a decent base of players. We had 1 and a half clans so from that synthesized an A-team, so 15 to 20 people.
DamienJax - We kicked out everyone under tier 8 and started working with the people who had tier 9s to get them to tier 10s
Ledif - Back then it was only like 200 people
DamienJax - But the 200 people back then were pretty active, we have never had to go to the forums to do active recruiting, they just come from Reddit
Ledif - In my case that's how I joined, I followed the subreddit for a while and then I was looking for a Clan Wars clan and there was one right in front of me, so it was fairly straight forward.
Bryant21 - For me I found the subreddit, kinda just one of those things. I saw the game, I played it a bit in beta from a friend and searched randomly one day and it’s what came up. Oh this seems like a pretty cool place. I'll see what these 250 guys are up to.
Vorkosigan - It started growing quite fast after that actually.
DamienJax - After we started organizing
Did you expect to do so well?
DamienJax - God no, I think I talked to Vorkosigan about it and said "hopefully RDDT 4 will be the last one we will have to create"
Vorkosigan - And then we keep saying that...
Bryant21 - We have 18 clans, 5 on the European server, 1 on SEA server and the rest are on the North American server and they are filling up. What we try to do, and this isn't entirely different from other clans, is
basically host a teamspeak where anyone can get on, we don't really care about your player skill and you can hang out and talk to people and just get some good advice. Play with people, and I mean that's how I got into the game. I jumped on and said "hey can somebody platoon with me please?" and now I'm running things!
