We did ask today’s clan if they were fans of the 2000AD comics considering their clan name. They didn’t answer the question so we will never know. But you have to admit, other than Zombie Dredd the blue skinned G.I. is an awesome role model for all.
Oh. What? It’s Judge Dredd? Sure human, you keep telling yourself that…
You are the self-proclaimed “new kids on the block”. When did you form, and how many members were there at the beginning?
We formed on the 20th of February, and we were only 6 members.
You appear to have grown in numbers at a pretty steady pace. How many members are you currently standing at?
We are 18 strong!!!!
Keen to give out their names, credit card details and ID numbers?
Alright, only PSN IDs will do.
1. ELRICD73 – manager and founder.
2. Ruschenbaum – management.
3. BLR_750 – management.
4. WalkingDeath-000 – management.
How is the clan organised from a management perspective?
We make use of various social media platforms to keep in touch and update each other with regards to clan ops, we’re a tight knit group like family.
You are a PS3 clan currently? Any plans to expand to Xbox 360? And what about the next-generation of consoles?
We’re PS3 based, the future isn’t written in stone so who knows??
What game is the clan’s main game of focus? Why?
We focus on Call of Duty MW3 and Black Ops2, mainly because FPS games has a huge following in SA.
Any other games that the clan plays as a change of pace?
Not as a clan no, but pretty sure the guys do play other games in their free time.
How often do you try to play together as a clan?
We try to play as a clan as often as possible, we wish we could game 24/7 but that can’t be sadly.
Have you entered any tournaments? Won any that you care to brag about?
Not really no, we’re scattered all over SA. So it’s difficult to participate.
Is attending LANs important to the clan and its members – especially considering the lack of (but steadily increasing) LANs in the console scene?
As before mentioned attending these events is difficult, because we are very isolated, geographically that is.
Would you consider yourselves as a clan: serious, competitive or one in it for laughs?
All of the above lol. We’re serious, competitive and yes, we have our laughs too.
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?
If you’d like to get in contact with management our email is email@example.com, you can also get a hold of us on facebook at RogueTroopersZA or follow us on twitter @RogueTroopersZA.
What are you hoping to achieve in the future as a clan?
We’d like to grow as a family and ofcourse level up as a clan!!! We’re currently level 22 on both MW3 and Black Ops2.
Which opposing clan(s) do you most respect/hate/want to be like?
We have the utmost respect for all clans in SA and we really don’t fear anyone, healthy competition never hurt anyone, we’re unique in our ways and wouldn’t want to emulate other clans.
In regards to professional – or competitive gaming – what do you as a clan think needs to be done to raise the profile of South African gaming?
The gaming scene is steadily getting more and more exposure, it’s going from strength to strength at the moment, if competitions we’re to be advertised on TV or televised that will surely help, but in hindsight I think we’re still miles away from that.
Right, let’s have a little fun…
If you weren’t a gaming clan you’d be…
…an insane bunch of friends, enjoying life and living.
Movie that bests describes the clan – Platoon or Tropic Thunder?
If you guys had a music soundtrack for going to war, what would it be?
Cut to Follow- Ten Seconds of Panic. Eye of the Tiger is also a winner!
Thanks for your time – is there anything you would like to add before you head back out to heed the call of duty?
Please don’t be afraid to get in contact if interested, we’re a fun bunch that enjoys gaming!!! EAT.SLEEP.GAME. Also don’t rage quit LOL.
