Killzone 2 Clan for the Rest of Us? | PS3Blog.net

Every week my friends and I get together for some gaming. Sometimes we play boardgames (tonight we’re getting together to play Struggle for Rome, a new Settlers game I recently bought). Usually we play video games. We play an assortment of games, but we always try to play at least one four-player splitscreen FPS. Mike and I are the two of the four of us that actually play FPS’s outside of our weekly game night, and I’ve been doing it for longer, so usually the standings leave me at the top with Mike sometimes beating me out. So usually after a games night I feel pretty good about myself. πŸ˜‰

But then I go play online and get totally creamed. I’m quite used to scoring at the bottom of the list. Sometimes I make it up as high as a third of the way up. Every once in a while the stars align and I happen to get placed with a bunch of players near my skill level and I get into the top half. My kill/death ratio is far below unity. (Alternatively, you could say my death/kill ratio is far above one.)

Killzone 2 is coming up, and I would love to play the game regularly with a regular group of people. But I don’t really want to get my ass handed to me every time I play, like in most FPS’s I play online.

So I was wondering if anyone out there is interested in a clan full of people like me? That is, gamers who enjoy first person shooters, know how to follow objectives, know which way to point the gun, but just aren’t all that good at it. I admit that I’m one of them. I like playing Call of Duty: World at War, but it’s depressing to put so much time into it and always do poorly. I just don’t have the hand-eye coordination required.

We could get a clan together full of equally (un)skilled players, and we could play against one another on a regular basis. And if we’re feeling masochistic, we can try to take on another clan.

Anyone? Maybe we can get a list together so that by the time Killzone 2 arrives, we can create a clan. We’ll also need a clan name. Oh, and if you’re too good, we’ll kick you out. πŸ™‚

Edit: Here’s the thread on the official Killzone 2 forums that I made about this. Link.

  • tigsfan

    I’d be interested in joining this type of group. I’m not very good at FPS games, but I do enjoy them.

    You’re description of

    “gamers who enjoy first person shooters, know how to follow objectives, know which way to point the gun, but just aren’t all that good at it”

    Describes me to a tee.

    PSN Name: tigsfan

  • As I’ve already written elsewhere I wouldn’t mind being in the clan.

    But I’m also located in Europe, so I don’t know if the clan should have regional chapters or if that matters at all?

  • jerryhat

    I’d be very interested in this. Your description is just about spot on.

    In the UK, psn: jerryhat

  • Again, accross two continents. There was brief period when I kinda ruled on Cod4 when I was playing 4 hours a day, but now it’s not possible and my ass is being kicked πŸ™‚ I’m hesido, living in TR.

  • Trieloth

    lol, clan deal sounds cool but Iam sure you will end up kicking me out. Iam not superman but I can hold my ground.
    I have a few buddy’s from Europe but the only time we can get together is during the weekends. Anyways good luck with the casual clan.

  • hobbes

    would love to get o this as well

    jwspiker is my psn

  • canguy69

    Count me in. I just not that good, but in it for the fun. Add me if you like.
    PSN ID canguy69. Please write ps3blog under subject so I know where the invite came from.

  • pro:
    – KZ2 is pre-ordered
    – I used to play CS and other FPS’s with the mouse keyboard combo

    con:
    – I don’t have a headset
    – I’m not too handy with a controller (perhaps that’s a pro?)
    – I’m EU based

    It’s a close call, but I’ll have to wait and see, I’ll let you know when and if I can join in on the fun.

  • I forgot to mention it in the previous comment, clan tag [PS3B] or freely translated PS3 Blog πŸ™‚ No need to find some spiffy new name. This blog is what glues us together, without it there would never have been a clan of KZ2 players.

  • Hey guys, there is a clan that is even better than description above.

    Combined Threat is more than a clan, being a member of Combinedthreat you’ll be part of an online family. Everyone is welcomed with op arms regardless of your skill level.

    Just sign up at http://www.combinedthreat.co.uk, say hello in the forum and you’ll see what I mean.

  • That photo, is just wrong. πŸ™‚

  • Lol, was meant for the Lara picture. That’s what happens when you browse with gazillion tabs..

  • Count me in
    PSN: britboy13

  • count me in too! i just can’t get the hang of aiming quickly with a controller stick πŸ˜›

    PSN: bunnyhero

  • mrfodder

    Sounds like my kind of crew. I was quite good of Battlefield 2 and 2142 with the keyboard and mouse, but can’t seem to get the hang of it with the controller. PSN: mrfodder

  • samiscrazy

    Count me in too, I love playing but I always ended up getting shot first lol.
    I’m located in Hong Kong. (If it’s ok?) PSN: samiscrazy

  • AmethystVenom

    I’d be interested in this clan starting out too. Maybe we can all get better together? πŸ˜›

  • any suggestions for clan name yet?

  • ok i’ll throw out some bad ideas just to get things moving πŸ˜›
