1. Is that one of the clan organizations that ask for donations from all of their members?
2. Also how much is the registration fee and does that include a tee shirt with the fee because some do?
3. If my shirt size is 3x will that be a problem?
4. What are the overall intentions from your clan?
5. If I don't donate but instead play on the "free" server at discord will I be discriminated against?
6. How does 5D go about selecting its future leaders by amount of money given or by who shows the best ability?
7. As far as the donated money does go then how is it spent and who is in charge of the finances?
8. What time zones do most of the 5D members play on and are leadership roles based off of time zones?
9. If there was an administrator in 5D and the non specific role members said he should be demoted
how would that work?
10. My tenth and final question must be if clan 5D is a thousand plus strong and are expanding to include arena
then I would imagine that loads of 5D players are in the alpha so why haven't I seen more of them around?
1.It is an Enjin based website, so donations are accepted, however never requested. Donations can only be used for enjin transactions such as the teamspeak server and the forums.
2. No registration fee or t-shirts :P
3. See #2.
4. 5D is a mixed casual/competitive clan. We actively participate in both clan wars and tournaments in WoT & WoWs(No clan wars yet). Recently we placed 2nd in a recent EU WoT tournament. The goal for TWA is to participate in all available content, including any potential tournaments and clan wars.
5. Zero discrimination policy(except age, gotta be 18 or older).
6. Donations do not get you ranks or power, ever. Leadership is based on activity & knowledge.
7. Donations are only accepted through Enjin and are only available to be spent on related services.
8. We have players on 24/7 on the teamspeak server. We have separate competitive teams for EU & NA players, but leadership is shared between both. Generally the officers in charge of events for those time zones are in them so they will always be available when needed. I am personally in NA, but plans have been made to promote members from various time zones based on activity & knowledge, as mentioned above. There is no exclusivity in leadership positions.
9. Any complaints can be submitted to the 5D leadership. Each group has it's own subset of leaders. All of the TWA officers will be specific to TWA and that grants you no authority in other groups. You are still welcome to play with others and join them officially, but you have to earn any officer roles there as well. Each group manages it's own internal affairs for promotions and demotions. Complaints can be brought directly to the overall 5D leadership and any reports like that are reviewed by a board at that level drawn from officers of various game groups. They perform their own investigation to determine what has happened and mete out punishment as needed.
10. The two busiest games for 5D are World of Tanks & World of Warships. Both games are vastly different to Arena so there isn't a lot of crossover there. Also, members are not required to include 5D in their name. Both WoWs & WoT support clans within the game, so a cosmetic tag is added for those games if you are a member. Any members in the Alpha would only be noticed if they paid the 10$ or whatever it is to change your name. Other titles that we play include Battlefield 1, WarThunder, ARK, Star Citizen & Eliteangerous. Also vastly different from TWA. Finally, the majority of players getting invites are those who played it on steam and a small minority are those who entered for a code when I advertised the game on the 5D forums. If you noticed from our list of games, only 3 of them are on steam. There wasn't much crossover in the member base that A. Uses steam often, B. Plays dedicated strategy games like the Total War Franchise, C. Played TWA at all in the steam beta. Because of this shift to WG & some prodding by myself, more people are learning about the game for the first time and ideally signing up for the alpha. Our games, minus BF1 and currently Star Citizen, are all heavy progression based games. It is difficult to get hardcore people to drop them after several thousand hours of effort. Especially if it is known that all progress will be reset several times before launch.
Due to that variety of factors, plus several others, you wouldn't have noticed them if they did play. The enjin community has roughly 3,500 members at this point, but that includes former members. On average our forum gets about 1,500 unique hits per day while the teamspeak gets roughly 500 unique joins per week.
