Looking at clan pages...




Lynx

This is an invite only clan that generally recruits members from its patron clan the {101st}, however if you think you've got what it takes to be a Lynx send a message to Apollo.


Masters

Invite only clan, but if you're interested in joining please Mail TWM


WM


[WM] is an invite-only clan. However, if you are interested in joining - feel free to contact any of our members.


XS
XS is an invite-only clan. However, if you are interested in joining - feel free to contact Ra or any of our members.





So is it an 'invite only' clan or not? ;P

They want to sound elitist but also are keen to have more members is what I think :P

Adding the element "but" in it implies a contradictory nature, yes.

To your question; for players who wish to join, they'll go through tests and if they're up to standards they'll be invite to the clan.

So, yes they are still "invite only" clans.

Considering these clans are all top-tier performers, they could be called elitist, without needing to "sound" as such, but yeah, it's also nice to have new faces with potential.

XCD has growing potential as well, shame you left them :P

Elite and Elitism aren't the same thing. You're not elitist if you are good, you're elitist if you look down upon those you consider to be inferior.

Oh no, Good Kid. They're spot on. They are all pretty good at being elitist :p

I think you misunderstood the post. If thats the case, then every clan in Warlight can call themselves an 'invite only' clan, since you can't join a clan unless you are invited. I would have thhought an 'invite only' clan was one where public recruitment is closed and players can only join through deliberate invitations.

This is generally used so that not so good players, are put off. (One reason why its invite only)
However those players that have some confidence in their ability and really want a skilful clan to join. We are open. Though this is a fair point tbh.

It really does just appear to be an argument of semantics. Technically speaking Brain/Pulsey/Jehovah is pointing out something that is grammatically contradictory. However, realistically these clans are not really actively recruiting. So in an esoteric sense they are invite only.

Also thanks for the shout-out Taisho!

still though its good for a chuckle or two =D

Pulsey, I didn't misunderstand your post, you misunderstood mine.

Though you're right, every clan can claim they're invite only.

This really is an argument of language semantics as Gentlemen said and when a clan says "invite only" it looks more professional. Beyond that, the purpose is rather vague.

There is a sound difference between elite and elitist, but in this game I don't mind having it used interchangeably. I really couldn't care less if players labelled me elitist on this game, especially the forum lesbian.

I think that even you can see a difference between how does clans mentioned above invite players and how it looks like in some other clans. For example I heard about Illuminatti first, when I received invitation to their clan. Invitations actually. 3 times a day.
Also I can bet, that most of clans if you ask them "hey, can I join you" will answer you: "sure, lemme just send you invitation"
Those clans are rather open clans, where almost everyone can join.

On the other hand we've got clans like LYNX or WM, where most players are being invited. For example I was invited to both Lynx and WM, and beside that I needed to pass through some test games before received actual invitation. This is how I understand difference between "invite only" clans, and those, witch are "open to join"

"Invite only" itself sound like there is another way to join the clan, without invitation.

Such as Widzisz?

"Widzisz" is just the tip of the iceberg.

When you join apex you are given a list of words you are told to use and never look up.

It's true.

All clans are invite only. You can't join a clan without being invited.

Really, it is just a matter of what your standards are.

Your enquiry will be made harder by the fact that the line isn't so thick as you would make it out to be. A lot of us might be still exploring our sexuality or be clearly bisexual in the case that we just happen to be with the person whom we are with not singularly on a sexual attraction but because of the sum of that person

The follow statement by Gentlemen has confused me and lead me to hypothesize the following scenarios:

A. He's married to Aranka's boobs

B. He's married to Aranka

C. Gentlemen's wife is a frequenter of this forum and possibly lesbian

D. He's married to X

E. He's married to Lawlz

F. Gentlemen is in a polygamous relationship and all the above scenarios are true

To Aranka's statement: Acting and exploring your sexuality is a luxury afforded to a stable society and people are easily molded by their experiences and environment. At the same time, there seems to be cases where people are hardwired into a certain preference that goes against anything they should have gathered from their environment, which may imply a genetic predisposition.

So to your point, the line each person draws is different; yours may be blurred, while other's are very clear. Lawlz's is probably just lonely and trying to broaden the spectrum of people who will communicate with him.
