HF Social clan?

I'm just throwing this out there, but there are quite a few regulars on the HF public servers who mention they're looking for a social clan. I don't see it as being anything more than a tag and maybe another forum here if that's not too unreasonable. Maybe organize a few of us to go hit another server every once in a while, whatever. I know if I don't make the cut for HF, I'd still like to join a clan with a some of the people I play with regularly.

I'm thinking something like Hardfought Lackies [HFL]? So any chance of something like this?

I was actually just thinking about suggesting something like this. Well if the admins do go for this Id defenitely be down for it. I cant commit to a formal clan otherwise I would have tried out for [HF] but a social clan would be cool even it is just a tag. 8)

This is too funny, that you guys bring this up. There's already a 'social clan' for Hardfought - it was created years ago when Hardfought was hosting CS 1.x, it's called the 'Hardfought Freelance Crew'. You may have seen some people wear the tag, it's something like -]HFC[- and the clan was formed for a tourney I held way way back.

Anyways, they're exactly what you're describing - not a real clan but just a group of regs who like to show their affiliation and play together.

One of the old-school regs needs to chime in on this thread, see if they're allowing anyone else to wear the tag, heh ;)

As the former treasurer and brains behind HFC in the CAL-I days (yeah we competed, lol) and seeing as how all the active HFC folks who wanted to clan are now in [HF], if RadMan and Maverick are OK with it, then I'd say go for it.

So, are there gonna be tryouts for that one too? I don't think I have the minerals to be a part of the HF, but I'd love to be in HFC. Hmm........ponders the possibilites and then forgets what he was talking about.

Sweet... a HF clan for us slackers(or the skill challenged)! Are there tryouts? or can we just stick this symbol of pride in our names?

If Rad and Mav also give their ok, we'll see where to take it from there.

there is also always the old "|proval" tag.

can't remember if that was ever formalized... i used to tag it on on occassion, but not as often as some others Doc, etc.

... heheh proval. still makes me laugh, like 2 or 3 years after the message was fixed.

Did we ever figure out what caused that message?
Proval is a russian word, it means "to fail" or something like that.
Provals are the names of all my fanatasy teams :P

I thought it was because the word "APPROVAL" was in a long sentence and wouldn't fit in one line. It was one of those admin mod server messages. So when the sentence was shown, it was say "Please send in your (something something) for ap." Then in the next line "proval."

I don't think it was ever fixed.

Yeah it was a type-o I did in an adminmod advert msg, and what was suppored to be a 3 line text msg came out only as 'proval' and it was like that for weeks, and I never noticed it. And then I saw ppl running around going 'proval, proval!' and I was like 'wtf...' - and so the cult was formed...

That just about sums it up ;)

skip the HFC tag, and just add |proval to the end of yer name if you want to be in the "social" clan. Oh and send meh $5 paypal to register your nick, I am the keeper of the proval.

I am relatively new to clans, and for this social clan can I just put the HFC tag on my name without asking anybody? is there tryouts or something? someone needs to fill me in.

and as you can see by my post count, I am new here .

well first off welcome to forums

second off, you need to reach 100 posts (legitimate not spam) before you can wear HFC tag. After that you are more than welcome.
