Remember when Undead Ed sang: “I predict a riot”? No, neither do we, but it usually happens when he makes a public appearance where an abundance of unruly humans have congregated. So this is a riot (or RiOT) then.
Hello. Introduce yourself to the readers. Go on.
Hi – we are RiOT – enough said or we kick you in the face.
How long have you been together?
About 6 months.
What is your platform (or platforms) of choice?
PS3 & PS4.
What games does the clan enjoy?
How was the clan’s name chosen?
Like a scene out of The Hangover – we just waiting for the pics to develop and we will let you know.
Who are the leaders of the clan and what is the clan’s organisational structure like?
Bosses are BonesMalones & clint3224
..and our noob is DeathJollyProof
How many members do you have? Keen to give out their names, credit card details and ID numbers?
Alright, only names will do.
Fluffy321 (Yes, we have a chick in our clan!)
How often do you play together as a clan?
Most days of the week you will find RiOT members playing together.
Do you consider yourselves a competitive clan, or one in it more for “the shits and giggles”?
Oh, definitely shit and giggles – we use clan matches for practice but we do like to enter tournaments.
Has the clan participated in many tournaments? Which? Won any?
Not yet but will be shortly.
Is attending LANs important to the clan and its members?
Is that code for the pub? …We’re either online or at the pub.
Are you guys actively recruiting for new players? If so, how should a potential member contact you and how do you decide on who is right to join you?
Yes we are. If you’re keen PM BonesMalones or clint3224 on Battlelog or click on the recruitment button on riotza.enjin.com.
What are you hoping to achieve in the future as a clan?
Maybe win a tourney or 2 otherwise we’re all about having a bit of fun.
Which opposing clan(s) do you most respect?
We respect them all because every one of the clans contribute to our gaming future in one way or another.
In regards to professional – or competitive gaming (or even gaming in general) – what do you as a clan think needs to be done to raise the profile of South African gaming?
Well, we need to definitely look at bigger sponsorship but I think the internet instability is the biggest detractor to serious competitive gaming.
Some fun stuff:
If you weren’t a gaming clan you’d be…
National Beer Drinking Champions/ Noobs.
War movie that best describes the clan?
Bride Wars – no, just joking – It would have to be Inglorious Basterds.
If you guys had a music soundtrack for going to war, what would it be?
Disposable Heroes by Metallica – how dare you even ask.
Thanks for your time – is there anything you would like to add before you head off?
Make love, not C4.
