Greetings. Welcome to the Unit Clan thread. UniT is the largest and oldest NOTD clan focused around SC2. Started in early 2011 by Diode as a way to group like-minded and skilled players into an organized body, we have survived almost 4 years and continued to add new members to our ranks. UniT members are to represent the upper crust of the community, all members are expected to fulfill the following criteria. Excellent community members. Above all else Unit members are expected to be shining examples to the community. Skilled. We only accept the best players, and all members must show either high performance or a strong desire to learn and improve themselves. Leaders. All members are expected to be capable leaders in their own right. Even if you do not leading, you should be more than capable of proving you can do so. Knowledgeable. All members are to be well versed in how NOTD works. Almost as important, they need to be able to communicate this and teach others when needed. ------------------------------------------------------------ Applications UniT accepts any candidate for a tryout. All you need to do is pass a few basic criteria. Have an NOTD forum account. We expect all members to be active within the community, and a forum account gives us a place to message and interact with you outside of StarCraft II. Clean record. UniT does not condone hacking or bank tampering. Members marked records with the Wardens are not allowed tryouts. If you feel this is unfair message us personally or have your offenses stricken with the wardens. To apply, leave an application in this thread. Please include as many of the following as you can. At minimum name and availability: Note: Any pending applications are null and void. All players who wish to tryout, or re-tryout must resubmit an application. This is final. ------------------------------------------------------------ Rankings & Titles UniT is now implementing a refined rank system so that it's members can gauge their level of involvement and set goals to advance and do more. Obedience is expected according to rank. There will be different areas of involvement as well as you will soon read. The ranks and areas are as follows. Chapter Ranks: Initiate - Fresh recruits who are newcomers to clan. They have no yet been properly trained up and are often in need of mentoring. An Initiates primary goal should be bettering themselves as a player and showing their loyalty to UniT by remaining active and dedicated in their first few weeks. Initiates should immediately rally to the call of a higher officer. After a full month of service Initiates are promoted to Battle Brother status unless otherwise noted. Battle Brethren - Full fledged members who have shown time and dedication needed to earn this title. They are effective leaders, skilled players, and fully capable of being pillars of excellence within the community. Battle Brethren have no special duties other than continuing to serve. They are welcome to strive for higher positions if they have the drive to do so. After a full year of service they are promoted to a Captain as a sign of their longstanding service. Old Guard - Elder members who are now relatively inactive. Unit members are not removed for inactivity, they are free to leave of their own choosing. But it is made note they are no longer around. Old Guard are absent from SC2 and the Forums, although they may still be active on Steam or other services. The primary purpose of this title is to group up members who are currently inactive within the NOTD community. After 2 months of general inactivity or at personal request, members are moved to the Old Guard. Captain - Veteran members who have seniority on their side. They are active and longstanding Unit members who are elites even among their own ranks. They are born leaders and should be the first place new members go looking for advise. Captains should be active in organizing matches and driving recruitment. A Captain cannot advance further within the ranks unless they specifically apply to do so and make their case to senior leadership. Company Commander - Highest echelon of Unit leadership. Picked from the oldest and most active members. In charge of administrative duties such as management, recruitment, and game coordination. Chapter Master - Our esteemed founder and Clan Leader. Diode is the be all and end all for any clan decisions. All important matters go through him, but he is not part of day to day operations. He is also to be shown the utmost respect Within these ranks are two subset companies. Each designates players who strive to specific aspect of play. All Unit members are expected to be skilled on an individual level, but more is asked of them than that. They are expected to be knowledgeable of the game, able both to teach and to explain. They are also expected to be capable leaders, able to take command at a moments notice. Chaplains: In battle a Chaplain provides the unwavering leadership needed to guide men. He is firm in his beliefs and provides the moral support to lead others to victory. The title of Chaplain is given to the members of Unit who excel at leadership above all else. Regardless of their clan rank, they are hardened commanders who take pleasure in organizing games, leading campaigns, and pushing others to victory. They are tacticians and used to quick decision making and rapid reaction. Librarians: Keepers of knowledge and walking encyclopedias. Librarians are the fountains of information who enjoy teaching more than leading. They are adept at planning and organization, taking into account possible scenarios and their execution. Librarians have adept knowledge of the game's inner workings, are adept at explaining difficult concepts and strategies. They are the members others go to with questions, they are the dedicated teachers and take great personal pleasure in seeing others learn and spread knowledge. Members who believe themselves worth of such titles should consider senior members or offer up a brief application on why they are deserving of said position. Titles are honorary and will be stripped if it's felt that player no longer fulfills the task he is entitled with. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Members & Positions Below is a list of all current members and positions. Please keep list in Alphabetical order. Note: I'd like to add SC2 account names/ID numbers eventually.
