(Ph!los): The Philosophers clan

Postby Forty-Two » Sun Sep 09, 2012 9:55 am UTC

Lemme just copy-paste the thing from tremulous.net..

Hello!

We're a not-too-serious clan from Tremulous 1.1. What started as a renaming joke (everyone used a philosopher's name, for example (Ar!stotle)), eventually became a non-competitive clan.

Our current members are all admins or helpful regulars from Wrath Newbie Training Server. We value fair play, helpfulness, calmness and all that. Skill is not something we're particularly interested in, nor taking the clan too serious: we're more a group of friends than anything else.

Since people seem to enjoy member lists:

(Wolfy) aka (H!ppocrates)
Ham Sammich
AK47
MiningMarsh aka (Darw!n)
<Loutre/> aka (Sp!noza)
a man with no name
Sunrise
Forty-Two aka (Volta!re)

We have two tags: (Ph!los)Name and (Ph!losopher), though some don't have an alias. We've been around for a while, but due to the whole non-competitive/serious thing (I think I've stressed that enough by now :P), we didn't rush off to post here.




So that's the original post. As for Unvanquished, I'm not sure if a lot of us will play it: we're a busy people :P Still, I thought it might be nice to post here.

Hippocrates technically wouldn't qualify as philosopher either. However, we decided not to go too strict on people, because a) it started as a renaming joke, and b) because, even if they're not 'real' philosophers, they have dipped into philosophical matters whether they planned to or not, and have changed how people think about those matters substantially, thus influencing philosophy greatly even if you don't consider them philosophers.

You shouldn't have. I'd say Mr.Cat is better than him.

You may be talking about a different AK47 here. The one I'm talking about is ^7A^1K^747, and as far as I know, only plays lagged (hates unlagged). I very much doubt you'd run into him, you being from Australia and all (you are, right? :P), and lagged/unlagged preferences. I've seen a not-so-great AK47 with a high ping once, maybe that's the one you know.

That aside, this

seems relevant. Newbies can't teach newbies, but for the rest, we don't really care for ingame capabilities. If we did, we'd have to start by kicking me out.

Actually the one i know/heared of had a similar colour pattern, but blue and green specifically. I think he may have had black once, not sure (most 1.1 servers have disabled the use of black in names due to the default trem console being black), and he's either american or european, since he had low ping on servers wherever i go (if you know what i mean, there aren't many 'alive' servers anymore near me)

Well that settles it. Wrong AK.
