Meet Gamers Till We Die. A clan name that is frankly so obvious it’s a surprise no-one thought of it before...
When did you form and what was the clan game of choice?
We were all part of one clan before things got complicated. We then started a new clan by the name of GTWD (Gamers Till We Die) in June/July 2012…I think, because the earliest details I have on my phone is in July. Our game of choice was Call of Duty: Modern warfare 3. After all that is where we all met.
How many members were you at the beginning, and how many members are you currently? Keen to give out their names, credit card details and ID numbers?
Alright, only Gamertags will do.
The clan started off with 5 Members known as the 5FF (five founding fathers)King Kappie , Ironseraph ,Iamwollie, Metalrock and myself The judgement. And with the awesome people that have joined our clan so far, we now sit at 9 members. 9 members that does not have a problem with anyone in the clan ,9 members that always has fun playing online together and to have all 8 those members to watch your back while your owning ?…….Priceless. Let’s just call it a “Weird online family.”Member names: all the above, Zodac, Gunhawk, FireFly and our newest member SuicideBomber.
Clan’s current game of choice? Why?
If we had to choose it will be Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. We like all kind of games and play Need for speed most wanted occasionally (nothing as fun as smashing your fellow clan member into a very hard wall) might sound harsh but we get a lot of laughs out of it.
Are you guys actively recruiting for new players? If so, how should a potential member contact you and how do you decide on who is right to join you?
Recruiting is always open to anyone that does not rage quit every five minutes, who is not a total douche bag and worries all day about how much better he wants to be than everyone else. He/she should be very down to earth, should get along with all the other members and should know how to have fun. How to get hold of us????? Xbox live/website by inviting any of the 5FF members……And just join in on our damn games, we don’t bite and the more you play with us the greater your chances of being part of this kickass clan. Play alongside us for at least 5 sessions (nights) and we will know if you can join or if you are just another move along. We take care of each other and don’t need some child to come and ruin it. SOOOooo if you want to be part of a clan that enjoys playing games for the sake of gaming?, then the GTWD is the clan you want to join.
Any other games the clan enjoys playing for fun? Together or solo?
Gears of War, Modern Warfare, Need for Speed Most Wanted, Need for Speed The Run, Halo4 Red Dead Redemption, Borderlands 2.
Does the clan have an organisational structure? Or is it a free-for-all?
Yes and no…..YES because the 5FF calls all the shots involving clan matches and members that want to join the clan. NO because if you’re a member of our clan you can run and play whatever you want whenever you want. Only to be online if asked to be online on a specific day for a private match against each other.
How often do you try to play together as a clan?
We are one of those clans that just happen to catch each other online every night so getting together as a clan happens more often than not playing together. I guess it’s the perks of good conversation.
Have you participated in any tournaments yet? Won any? Planning to (… win and participate in tournaments that is)?
None yet. Maybe one day, but not very soon. We are not very keen on clan matches unless its friendly then we just jam.
Do you consider yourselves a competitive clan, or one in it more for the “shit and giggles”?
Shits and giggles.
Is attending LANs important to the clan and its members – especially considering the lack of LANs in the console scene?
Unfortunately most of our clan members are scattered all around South-Africa so getting together is a bit of an issue.
What are you hoping to achieve in the future as a clan?
Just a strong clan with more members and bigger name amongst the ZA gaming community ……All we do is JAM games and that is how we are planning on keeping it.
Are there any opposing clan(s) you most respect/hate/want to be like?
We have no beef with any other clans so all round, no we have no enemies and no we wish to be like nobody else. We are awesome like that.
In regards to professional – or competitive gaming – what do you as a clan think needs to be done to raise the profile of South African gaming?
Get out there and tell people about it. Next time you walk into a game shop and you see a guy checking the games, ask him “dude do you play online?” if no tell him about how awesome it is and how many different kinds of people you get out there, convince them to get it. Nothing will happen if nothing is done…..Now get started people!!!!! The more ZA gamers the better for all.
Right, let’s have a little fun…
If you weren’t a gaming clan you’d be…
having very boring conversations with ourselves.
War movie that best describes the clan – Platoon or Tropic Thunder?
Tropic Thunder with a bag of awesome.
If you guys had a music soundtrack for going to war, what would it be?
Anything but Hannah banana ,Justshoot Bieber and dubstep. So rock,punk,metal….you get it.
Thanks for your time – is there anything you would like to add before you head back out to do battle?
