Looking to form a player group that uses mic chat (US, West)

    This game clearly lends itself to a lot of teamwork, but that just doesn't happen through random teams and typing.
    I would like to put together a group of competent players that are interested in working as a team.
    I guess you could call it a clan, but really it's just a group.
    The more experienced and skilled players will attempt to lead strategically, but in the end there is no hierarchy.


    Going to have to require that you are over the age of 18.
    I know I wouldn't have liked seeing this as a kid, but no one wants to deal with children.
    I also have no way of telling your actual age, so if no one calls you out you're probably in the clear.


    No griefing, no bullshit, no clan tag. Let's win some games.


    Let me know if you're interested,
    Bilbs



    EDIT::
    Another benefit of a group working together on mic chat would be the ability to quickly kick griefers.

    Will you have a ventrilio/mumble?
    Also is this sort of a team stacking thing, or will the group fight other group members?

    This hosting service provides free mumble hosting when you buy a server. Could always use that.
    If you're hosting your own server you should probably look into hosting mumble on there.

    Communication goes a long way.

    A lot of players don't 'listen' to emoticons very well. Team-VoIP would make for a definite advantage.

    Also, a formal team would make it easier to field squads (knight-archer-engineer teams and bomb runs, etc)

    So often I've got my knights, my archers running ahead and getting themselves killed while I'm building a castle, forcing me to retreat and lose ground.

    Yeah, sign me up.

    I have a server through this company and my server has been up and down for about a week because they can't get their 'team payment' system straight. The free mumble server is nice though, and if my server with them gets worked out then I'll be able to use our mumble for KAG.

    As for team stacking, not exactly. It's just frustrating to me to play such a teamwork based game without any way to coordinate teamwork (other than those emoticons, which are pretty sweet). If we have enough people it would be fun to split up and scrimage each other. I'd say under 5 we stick together?


    Steam group sounds like a good idea
    I've made a public group called King Arthur's Army.

    I really resent your age limit, not on the grounds that I don't like the idea of only associating with mature people (which I assume is your intention, not just senseless ageism), but I don't get how the arbitrary limit of 18 or any age is a good measure of maturity.

    I don't think one can really argue that maturity doesn't vary wildly even with people of identical age.

    Obviously you offer the option of faking your age, as I know some people have done already, but making people lie about your identity when they are otherwise entirely qualified is really stupid.

    I mean, it's your group you do what you like with whatever rules you like, but I'm still gonna say your rules are dumb.

    I would be up for it but don't have a mic.. :(

    Then again I don't want to lead, so would that be acceptable?!

    Can I join? I'm in england, but I have a fast PC and I don't lag that much, plus i'd like to think i'm a fairly competent player, at all three classes. Guess my steam is bloodbath234 and my msn you'd have to ask for.

    Bilbs server is a pre built server that is focused on siege warfare so a mic-team would be most efficient for it and other servers :p count me in.
