Well guys, we seem to have this war in the bag, which is awesome! First I want to say great work to everyone who has participated, from those like Kano who have been here since the beginning up to our most recent recruits like Jesse, Jon, and Billy. We have grown a lot as a clan and have proven to be unbeatable most of the time (the only thing ever holding us back has been roster issues). Now it comes time to discuss the future of this clan both for future ghosts clan wars and for the AW wars whatever they end up being.

First lets discuss the current ghosts wars. The general feeling among the officers is that, while we wish to go back to regular platinum wars, we don't want anyone to feel left out or like they were used. We want to make sure everyone has a chance for their opinions to be heard before we make a decision. The way we feel it would be most fair at this point is that we would be willing to stay in diamond but we would pretty much kick out everyone in the clan who already has war cry gear for the roster lock. That way we can help those who still need war cry gear get it by helping get more and faster wins, but it is really up to the people who need the war cry gear to step up and earn it. Meaning it will be on you all to show up on time and each night and get the actual points yourselves. Everyone will be invited back of course! And we would still be looking for people to volunteer to help get the war cry for our clan so everyone who can participate and still wants to is more than welcome to. As I said though, we want to hear everyone's opinion before we make a final decision so please post here and let your voice be heard!

Now on to AW and the future of the clan when that game comes out. This may directly or indirectly tie into the first part. At the moment we have a great clan and want everyone who is in it to stay in it for AW. Do we want to expand? Should we use the time between now and October to find more great people or should we stay as we are? If we do expand this could lead to us being in diamond until ghosts clan wars ends and getting new people war cry gear constantly. I for one wouldn't mind that as long as those we add are good additions!

Also I want to make sure everyone understands going into AW that the competition will be fierce again. While I have no doubt we would have won or placed in these last few wars regardless, a lot of the top clans have stopped playing clan wars once they got full war cry. This means we are going to have to be WAY more strict with wars at the start of AW if we want to succeed. It will be imperative that you sign up, show up on time (which means early for team making), and that you communicate to us when you are running late or if something happens. But more on that as we get closer to that time!

Have at it guys, post your thoughts and opinions. Two weeks from this war is July 4th so it will be three weeks between wars. You have until then to be heard before we need to decide whether to stay in diamond!

Just want to add for sake of discussion that while some of you want to finish up war cry, there are others who have been in the clan a long time and because the schedule of diamond doesn't work for them haven't felt able to contribute to clan wars in a while and are looking forward to going back to being in the regular wars and able to participate. And anyone who still needs body count that is definitely something we can still earn in Bronze - Platinum regardless of how we do in future diamond wars.

I'm all for staying in diamond for other clan members and being dropped from the clan to help. But I have to put a vote in to drop back down to platinum, I can put alot more hours in, the diamond playing times just aren't working for me and I'm lucky if I'm getting 3 hours per war.

To state my position, I am happy to support clan mates in getting the unlocks they desire. I am however keen to go back and compete in a few 'regular' wars before the start of AW and want to be done with diamond as soon as possible.

Having to organise personal life around clan wars participation (rather than being able to orgainse clan wars participation around personal life, as you can in regular wars) is not something I wish to continue indefinatly.

Therefore, I support the proposal above and will committ to getting online and helping get those last couple of wins for folks missing diamond gear, but beyond that my vote is very much to opt out of diamond.

EDIT:
Forgot to mention the expansion for AW topic. My view is that if we come across like minded players (as in, like minded to the general approach / community feel of the clan), we should be open to bringing them onboard. It would need to be with the caveat that we will not be doing endless diamond div, so if people are chasing warcry, we will not be able to support that beyond the next couple of wars.

I would not however be keen to see the clan massively expand. I like numbers around 20, purely for an organisational point of view!

I enjoy clan wars either way.
In terms of stayin in diamond or goin to platinium, I am not bothered as long as it is still enjoyable!
In terms of AW, if we recruit, I agree with Hypo, as long as it is good additions crack on but!

For me, Diamond is out. I have to take off work and lose a lot of money to play in diamond which I have done until now as I don't like being carried to free stuff. Will happily play platinum clan wars whenever possible and don't mind being dropped for diamond whichever way we go. I think we need to stop adding members until everyone current has war cry, though, and after that make sure every new recruit knows we are recruiting for AW and not to get them war cry as we are back to platinum.

I agree with haps , the 20 bracket for clan members is fine, alot easier to coordinate, remember how manic it was when we had about 60!!
We have an excellent clan and should maybe only look to recruit if a current member decides to leave.

As most of you guys know, Diamond Wars does not fit my timescales at all.

As I work til late and then have my family duties its rare I get on Xbox until 10pm meaning I only contribute an hour a night.

Back in platinum I used to be on around 5 hours per night all 5 nights, so 25 hours contribution instead of 3.

So for me I would like to go back to platinum but I also am happy to stay in diamond short term while the last few members finish up their warcry / bodycount.

Would help maybe if we got some feedback on who wants to continue for WarCry? I know we have Daz & Billy, who else?

Jesse has stated that he has war cry camo and that is all he cares about but is willing to participate either way

I'm good for either way although I think more of us would enjoy going back to platinum clan wars. It's easier on schedules and makes for even more fun.

This for me is the best clan ive been involved with and ive been in a few its organised and very interactive. I myself would like to drop bk down to a lower bracket just coz of time issues,but also i will commit to playing in any future wars diamond or other division to help out with unlocks i joined the clan to participate in clan wars ,and i really enjoy playing with you lot.
Ps i know im the worst player in the clan but i am nearly 50 lol
Looking forward to many more wars whatever division .
