Family Members

Although the [RIP] Clan insists on members being 18 years old or more, we do have an active family membership. The family members are children or relatives of full members.

So if you are thinking of joining and want to bring your kids or relatives with you, then we might be what you are looking for.

  • to be a full member of [RIP] you must be aged 18 and over, no upper limit.
  • the only under 18's in the clan are family members of current members.

Do I need to donate to join the Clan?

You will realise that servers do cost money to provide and it is only through donations that we are able to keep the servers available.

So please donate if you can!

Do I need to commit to anything?

It depends on what you want to do.

[RIP] is a clan that is about having fun in our games and TS. We are not a competitive clan although we do organise league competitions within the clan and compete with other clans in friendly scrims (which is why we run a platoon structure). We have previously had competitive teams but we currently just play for enjoyment although if enough members want to compete we will support it. Our experience has been that the whole gaming experience is enhanced when scriming. To be part of a competitive team you would be expected to show up for practice, usually around one hour per week and to show up for matches on a regular basis.

Having said that, we know that it is not always possible to comit the time needed to practice and compete and for that reason we have Territorial Army platoons. If at you dont want to comit to set times each week a TA platoon may be what you need. TA platoons will be offered the chance to take part in internal competitions, but there is no expectation that you have to turn up.

To continue to be considered as a member of [RIP] you do need to make one post in our forums each month. Failure to do so will result in you being posted as missing in action. After a further month you will be removed from the clan.

Whatever your status within the clan we rely on donations. New recruits are not expected to contribute during their probationary month. However, once you are a full member we would expect you to donate to the upkeep of the servers.

What's with all the awards?

Ribbons, Medals and Badges are awarded to members as recognition for winning competitions, service or completing courses.
