i agree, it would be EPIC to see clans on TS! Can the cncnet staff please comment on whether clan functionality is something we can look forward to in the near future?

Near future? I cannot say that, but sometime in the future, maybe.

Clans are absolutely the biggest thing required to make TS close to what it once was.

 

There really are a very large number of old elite players that have no interest to come back without clans.

 

With that said, CNCNET has done way better job than wol or xwis, and there are so many amazing patches and much better client.

 

Clans were just such a huge part of TS and really essential to getting a large chunk of the old player-base back from other new competitive games like SC2 and LOL.

Since I made a post on the topic "Re: CnCNet Leaderboard now live!" where I guess few will read it I will post it again here this time..

 

This is some great news. Well done team CnCNet  :)

 

You should easily be able to make the ladder system to sense when a 2vs2 game finish as a wash game(draw) which occurs when one player from each team is defeated before one team defeats all opposing players. Then you will be able to create a separate 2vs2 ladder since the possible outcomes of a 2vs2 game are team 1 wins, team 2 wins or wash game which means a draw and then no points should be awarded or deducted on the ladder. (I am sure this should be possible some how for 3vs3 and 4vs4 games too but I have never played that kind of ladder game since it did not exist at WOL.)

 

If you then create an interface(perhaps copy the old WOL-ladder if there are no copyright issues anymore) where players can log in with their credentials and add features to create clans, invite into and kick members/players from the clan then I am sure every one who played Tiberian Sun on a higher level will appreciate it. This will allow players to evolve their teamplaying skills again more easily and it also will also create circumstances where players will be more innovative and create new strategies and tactics regarding 2 vs 2 gameplay since you can easier practice with the players that you currently choose to create a clan with. Also there are some significant different skillsets needed to be very successful in 2vs2 compared to 1vs1 games, such as sending enough support to your team m8 when needed,timings, counterattack in right moments,handle early doubleteaming, the eco game, harv control etc are also alot different since the tib/money is much more limited in a 2vs2 and there are much more opportunities to harvhunt. Games rarely go 1vs1 style in a 2vs2 where top vs top and bottom vs bottom positions mainly battle it out. Also the combo attacks and other dynamics in that match up between gdi+nod teams vs gdi+gdi teams much less significant today since players don´t have the possibility to practice together and then test their skills vs others team playing skills. When players switch team m8s every single game the factor of 2vs2 strategies and synk between team players disappears alot.

 

I know that there are new features in CnCnet client to preset teams and spots to simulate clan and team games but it is not the same if there is no ladder and clan system supporting it. This have always been a major part of TS and even though oldschool players come and visit CnCnet they rarely stay long and I think lack of what I described in this post is a big reason to it since all the best old memories high level players have from this game is from that kind of games that can only occur when there is a possibility to conduct competitive team games.

 

I hope I do not sound do needy towards the developing team @ CnCnet with this post but I wanted to express my sincere opinion regarding a subject that I think many more then myself care alot of.  :heady:

 

Cheers.

Clans were the core of TS. Winning the clan ladder was always seen as more of a feat than winning the 1v1 ladder. I have no doubt that reintroducing a clan ladder would bump up numbers.

Makes 2v2's so much more enjoyable! Clans for mods, clans for ww players. Brings the TS community back to some heights of the what it once was!

 

Some enjoyable days playing with Nate, Dan, Meier & Connor.

Anyone who wishes to donate to TAHJ, who is currently working on the Ladder / Clan system can use the donate button on this page: https://github.com/sean3z/cncnet-api

 

He is a busy guy who works on this in his own spare time, so I am sure he would appreciate the show of support.

Thats good news humble. Nice to know someone is actually working on it and i am also keen to raise money for the work being done.

 

I think we could do something to raise more money than we otherwise would if we solely rely on donations because people will be reluctant to give money with the chance of them maybe never getting anything back in return.

 

I suggest hosting tournaments where players pay an entry fee to raise more money. 50% of the entry fees could go to the top 3 finishers and the other 50% go to tahj & co or something like that. To get this right we need as many players to take part as possible. Therefore, i think its worth considering clan style tournaments as well because it seems more players are into team play as opposed to 1v1. This would also make it more appealing to modders who make up most of the ts community. Hopefully people will  be more willing to contribute because at least they get some good games and a shot at winning some money.

 

Its easy enough to set up a donations page which could be used to accept entries as long as there is some way of determining who has donated. (I've never made one myself but mecha has so it can't be that hard!)
