Simple enough. What clans offer the best educational & training opportunities for its members?

there are the 'Elite' ones, like WM Apex and Relite

then there are clans just for decent players to play together: Masters, Gladiators, WG, Ahol. Though i think they mostly admit people they know well.

there are role play clans, who only play roleplaying games: e.g. RP

then there are learning clans, like VIW and CPU and REGL and 101st

then there are beginner clans, for noobs E.g LRA, Warlighters

@Brian: What exactly is a role playing clan? Is it a clan that reenacts historical battles and campaigns?

And by a learning clan, I assume you mean a clan that focuses on teaching its members how to be better players and/or advance to the next level of expertise?

@ Hidden Hand: Well I am not sure whom I would want to seduce. I am already wealthy. And I am married, so no more hot chicks (except for my wife).

Do you offer some type of matching 401(k)? :)

Most will require a certain W/L ratio so you may need to allow others to see your stats. If you look at the clan pages they will show you what they require.

After 1.5 years and 2000 games what kind of training are you looking for?

@Mike: basiclly in custom scenario games, people are assigned a country, then act like real world countries, declaring war, making diplomacy etc. I like strategic games more, but there are some historical nerds out here.

thats the only roleplaying game i'm in right now^, not the best example, but if you look back at histroy and chat you'll see.

learning clans are basiclly for players around similar level and they play each other a lot and try to improve. There are 1 or 2 good players in them and sometimes they help teach too.

@ Jefferspin: I'm a little OCD when it comes to neatness and don't like the clutter of the W/L stats on my page. My stats are in the mid 70% for 1v1 and 2v2. 3v3 stats sucks (39%) as I find it really difficult to put together a cohesive 3 player team (the other reason I'm looking into joining a clan.

Besides, stats are misleading - I've easily beaten players with 80%+ 1v1 stats and have been smashed by *really* good players with 1v1 stats in the 55-65% range. So I choose not to put the stats up.

I'm a good player, but not a great player. That's why I am looking for a learning/teaching oriented clan. I feel I am qualified to help players learned the intermediates of the game but realize that I still need instruction on the finer points of the game.

@ Hidden Hand: There are differing definitions of wealth. I have savings and income that exceed my wants and needs. If I want anything - I buy it, and still have lots left over. I no longer need to work but choose to work part-time from home 5-10 hrs a week. As for my "leaches" - I assume you mean my two beautiful daughters, they enrich my life beyond measure and add immeasurably to my happiness; so yes I do consider myself a very blessed and wealthy man.

By the way, you've represented your "clan" quite well tonight. I'm afraid I'll have to turn down your offer of membership though.

I understand I'm just saying some clans would want to see that. Especially clans with players who would be good enough to really help you get better. As for which one I would recommend, I'm not sure. Brain/Pulsey had a good breakdown of the clans. You can join for learning you just need to be vocal. Check out the clan pages to see who you'll need to talk to if you want to join. Good luck!

Thanks Jefferspin. I have checked out the clan page but I have noticed that some clans that I have seen on Warlight are not yet on the clan page. I figure I'd give it some time and they'll be there sooner or later. :)

@Jefferspin: I just looked at the clans page and it seems they have added a few more in the last week. The only one I notice missing now is CPU. I wasn't looking for any one in particular though.

I agree with Seahawks and Brain, those are two clans with some good players willing to talk and teach. CPU is basically a dead clan.

I was in the same situation a year ago Mike. To be blunt there are no clans that will help you improve, and almost no other information like a guide or writing about warlight theory that will either. Everyone good learned almost completely on their own. I looked at good players old ladder games, found people of similar skill level who I practiced with, and spent a lot of time thinking about each turn. Now i have the record for highest ladder rating ever.

I probably learned the most from watching/hosting some of the streams for the livestreamed tournaments we do each week. Simply hearing other talented players talk about the games has given me insight I wouldn't have had otherwise. See http://warlight.net/Forum/Thread?ThreadID=12813 for more info.

I think dead piggy has a good point. Playing games and analyzing your mistakes is the best way you can improve. So joining a good clan *can* be helpful in that you can more easily play better players, and you can get access to higher quality tournaments and games (which has a domino effect as you get on more players' invite lists). But you can also do this without being a part of a clan... for instance, have you played the ladders?

If I were you I would pay attention to the clan affiliations of the people you're playing, and if their skill level matches yours well enough, and if you like them, maybe ask about joining. Try before you buy, so to speak. :)

@deadpiggy: Thanks for being upfront. I have been going through some old ladder games as well as playing on a team with a really good player that has taught me a lot. I guess I will continue to do so.

Masters will take anyone good and nice but its aHol who only invites people they know well, they are all good friends they just happen to be really good. Meanwhile Whorish groupies is the most elite clan so maybe not for Mike

WG does some training, we do small RRs and I am working on a CLOT too. But mostly we want good players already. However, most have a weakness that they improve once in. Like Tenshi was very good at 1v1 but had basically never played 3s. Invite me to a game Mike and we can see what you know. I often help people regardless of whether they are WG material
