    A long time ago, about 3,000 years ago to be exact, there was a single group of assassins. Their name was The Alliance. They grew powerful, and eventually conquered the entire land they lived in. That is today modern Japan. They ruled with harsh punishments, but great rewards. Unfortunately, not many people got to see that rewards, and that made all the people rise against The Alliance. Eventually, they fell after 500 years of ruling their territory. Since then, there have been many dynasties of assassins. But now, The Alliance has come back. They're using their sheer skill in battle to conquer their territory back, and all recruits will be trained to a high level of skill in battle. We are now known as the Assassin's Alliance, and we will rule.

    Hello there fellow clan peeps! :0 My name is OBVIOUSLY MetalSonic but you can call me Metal or something I dont care leave me alone.

    Anyways, this post right here is the one that's been set aside for the all-important ruruus. Which are expected to be READ and UPHELD, of course. Cuz were Assassins and stuff and codes and honor and yup. So without further whatever, here they are!

    [​IMG]

    Rule No. 1: Please be courteous to others!

    Try, try your best to be nice to others! It's much easier to stop fingers from typing then it is mouths from moving. Meaning if you have something to type about someone and it isn't particularly constructive....Please, don't type it. It tends to create tension every now and now and that stuffs just way uncomfortable. This is a clan for friends and having fun and yeah and maybe, possibly, some battling...actually....

    Rule No. 2: Battle and post often!

    So many clans tend to delve into "xat clan" territory and thus end up defeating the purpose of making a thread for the clan itself by doing all of everything in the xat. Not that that's a bad thing! If it works out for you then that's cool, but there's a thread for a reason! Post battles often, bring up things in the meta you think'd be cool to talk with among your clanmates! Try not to delve into anything too casual, however. As it still needs to pertain to the clan or at least Pokemon. Nothing controversial I.E. "DRAMA" though cause that'd start stuff and that'd just not be cool whatsoever. Activity Posts (with actual content) are a must. If you're one of those dudes who only posts when "needed" then that's cool but please don't have us forget you even existed in the first place. :0 Of course, I can't quite enforce this one as it's moreso up to you and stuff and strictly enforcing this would be kinda uncool, but it really is expected and would help to get things going along! >.<

    Rule No. 3: lol have fun hurr

    It's not hard, dudes. xD Enjoy yourself around here. Maybe back then we were kinda harsh, but we've really mellowed out this era. None of that tyrannical ruling, stab-through-the-heart-if-you-disagree-with-us our ancestors used to do! Naaaa, Serebii rules are around and I shouldn't have to remind people to adhere to them as they're around all the time, but yeah! Have fun with what you're allowed to have fun with. Like I said, it's not hard. ^^;

    [​IMG]

    Welcome to Assassin's Alliance, I hope you enjoy your stay. You will find this part of the guild has undergone changes. I truly hope it will be for the better, as we are now going to truly strive to be our best.

    I am Dragonicwari, Cosmic Fury's successor. You may call me Dragon, Wari, or any other variation of my name as long as you give me a heads up. I am the one who commands the army the Alliance uses to wage war on others. I am also the enforcer of the rules here. As the leader of our army, I expect nothing but the best of what you are. If you're a good battler but don't put in the effort, then you're no better than that kid next door who tries (and fails) to conquer every league out there with nothing but a Pikachu.


    In Clan Battling

    In clan battling is highly encouraged. I keep track of it and keep the most up to date spreadsheet here. It is one of the few ways to advance in rank.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    War Team Testers

    I'll take applications, but I'll only receive the best. You'll need to give us prior knowledge of what you can test, and what tiers you are best at. If you want to be a tester, you need to give me a reason why you should be one, and back up your answer with a couple of battle logs that display your skill.

    --Any member of the war team--

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As protectors of the Alliance, you are expected to act like it. These rules are few and extremely easy to follow, but you should still remember them.

    1. Be sportsmanlike. Sure, you can vent a bit, but don't go overboard!

    2. Be civilized and respectful to each other and to the leaders here. Otherwise, you'll lose your position VERY quickly.

    3. Stay active. The 3 most important factors to a war team member are Skill, Activity, and Ambition. I expect all 3 from any war team member and I am not afraid to cut members if they are not putting in the effort. If you give me a heads up because you need a break or are not going to be around for a while that's fine. I won't take you off the war team or anything, I'll just put you on the sub team for as long as you need.


    Joining the War

    We need the best of our clan for war. I'm looking for people who can consistently battle well. You don't have to be an amazing battler to get in, you just have to prove that you have what it takes to battle under pressure. Each of the 3 tasks has a specific purpose to determine whether you are deserving of a spot and will be explained. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me, I'll keep my eyes and ears open.

    1.

    Activity


    To start to get into the War Team, you must have been in the clan for 2 weeks and you must make at least one post a week (unless you give the clan a heads up that you won't be active for a while).

    Why?

    Being in the clan for two weeks is my way of seeing if you plan on clan hopping or not. If you stay for two weeks I'm going to assume you plan on staying in the clan for a while. Posting at least once a week shows me you are at least somewhat active and will be active enough to do your war matches. These are both problems we have had in the past and I don't want to see it happening again.

    2.

    Glicko 2


    PS users I want to see a screenshot of one of your alts. The alt must have a Glicko 2 score of 1725 or higher and a deviation of +/- 100. You can do this by typing in /rank in the Pokemon Showdown chat box. You can then click the pint screen button on your keyboard and paste it into something like paint. After that you will need to upload it to a hosting site like Photobucket and pm me the image. PO users send me a screenshot of your ranking in Pokemon Online that includes your ladder spot. I haven't used PO in a while but I believe you can right click on your username to have a pop up box show it. You can then click the pint screen button on your keyboard and paste it into something like paint. After that you will need to upload it to a hosting site like Photobucket and pm me the image. Wifi battlers We obviously can't get a ranking for you, so instead you will have to have a few extra battles. This will be explained more in rule 3.

    Why?

    This will show me you are consistently a good battler. A Glicko 2 of 1725 is not hard to get, but it will prevent people who do not play consistently to get into the team. Seeing a ranking on PO is more or less the same concept. Wifi battlers will be tested with more battles instead of having the ranking check for the same reason, and the matches will probably be spread over a couple of days.

    3.

    Test Battles


    PS/PO users will be required to have 3 different test battles by 3 members of the war team or one of the war team testers. Those 3 will talk to me about how you did, preferably with a replay (I can be a tester by the way) and I will decide whether you are fit for the team. I may consult other main members of the clan as to their opinion of you before I decide. Wifi Battlers will need a total of 5 test battles by 3 or more war team members or testers.

    Why?

    I want a firsthand look at how you battle in different conditions. We each have our own play styles so we all have our own weaknesses. If you are only tested by one person you may get lucky, have a good play style against them, or you may have been having a good day.

    On behalf of the War Team, I once again bid you welcome. This is the iron fist of the Alliance. These brave samurai will stop at nothing to achieve victory at any cost, or die trying.

    Their main responsibility is to find a war that the public will enjoy, and that the War Team has good odds of winning. This person will usually be able to hire assistants, but they will not be listed here.

    -Dragonicwari-

    Their job is to find people to go into the War Team. They coordinate with the Captain in their recruiting efforts, which are based solely on spots needed or available.

    -MetalSonic-

    He is the leader of the war team itself. He calls the shots when it comes to calling in subs during a war, and recommending additions to the team (or recommendations that someone be kicked). He is the senior member of the War Team, and in essence my right hand man if I'm not present to oversee the fight. In addition, he also makes recommendations on who to war, how many people we're fighting with, etc.

    - ZoroarkForever -

    [​IMG]

    I don't plan on having a set war team every war. Instead we are going to have a rotating war team. How this is going to work is I want a war team of 8+ people. 5 of them will be in for a war and the other 3 will be subs. However the next war 3 of those 5 that were in the previous war will be subbed out and the people who were subs will be in the war. If someone does not wish to participate in a war they can choose to be a sub and possibly only 2 people will be swapped for that war. I also have their preferred tiers listed underneath them.


    -War Team Captain Zoroarkforever-
    Anything but UU


    -Dragonicwari-
    Ou, BH

    -Moonclawz-
    Ou

    -Desert_Fox-

    -McBarrett-

    By the way, I really like how the rank-up system is actually based on battle wins rather than accumulating points. You really have to work for your rank here, good stuff guys!

  17. Skarm™

    Skarm™ Light It Up

    Basically Smogon standards, no Ubers in OU and and like that.
     
  18. JCKane

    JCKane Meow!!


    I'm not completly familier with Smogon Standards. lets see, I know that using moves/items that lowers accuracy or decreases invasiveness is not allowed. And I know that there are certain categories. Like Uber and OU, and I think another one. So does that mean the Ubers... like Rayquaza, aren't allowed to be used in this clan at all?

    Also is Meloetta Uber? I know some legaries aren't. (like I think Celebi isn't due to it's type).
     
  19. Cosmic Fury

    Cosmic Fury Evil Overlord

    Meloetta is UU, as far as I know. Nobody knows how OP it can be... LOL
     
  20. JCKane

    All right thanks. :) gonna be using her.
