There seems to be some confusion as to how many {Mac} clans there are and what games are being played. I myself would like to clarify this issue.

If anyone knows of, or wants to start a {Mac} clan, then please post. Please be sure to include the title of that game as well.

At the moment there are four that I know of, all of which use (or plan on using the {Mac} sig).

{Mac} Clans
1. Tactical-Ops
2. Warcraft 3
3. RtCW (Thanks to chibianh)
4. Starcraft (Thanks to asurace)

Better Idea {MR} like {MA} just better (MA has alot of horrible newbs in all of it's games).

My Suggested Games for us.
-RTCW
-UT2K3
-War3

BTW- U could always just host the site ur self W/ Dyndns um MR.dyndns.com
Hey I'd even be willing to host it if I got some self w/ the site creation (Still learing Java2 and such) Sure it would'nt be that fastest but it would be fine if it was just info not downloads. Anyone else w/ somethin faster then 128 up (real) willin to voluntear?
Whoa that had horrible grammer.
Whatever All I need it a faster computer then this pos G3 233 then Il'l be able to actually play :rolleyes:

Just wondering if there would be any backlash from using a game peecee on the Mac clan.... :D I have the games installed onto the pc, and not on the Mac (800MHz TiBook that I just did a restore on over the weekend). I will, probably, reinstall all the good games back onto the TiBook one of these days, I just don't know when. So many games, so few of them OS X native... sad really.

Considering how Oni came out ready for OS X all that time ago. So very few games have done the same, or even released official patches/updates to get them to run native under OS X.

I hope UT2 is OS X native, THAT would rock. :D

Hey Im post alot right now :rolleyes:
NP IMO cuz as MA says u can't beat a kick ass PC gaming rig. (hopefully this changes) As for UT2K3 it should be X native cuz a XP to Unix port would be much easier then XP to classic and since classic is dead it would make no sense. My guess is Westlake and Macsoft port and release it like UT. Hopefully its out by summers end.

Could we use the sig {Mac} in other games as well? Draft and I want to use it for our Macrumors Tactical-Ops clan.

Sure you can use {Mac} Unless of course the 2 programs magically share names then you should be fine;)

Hello, it's me again. Are there certain requirements needed to join the macrumors clan? Or do you just have to be part of these forums? I've had people ask me on Rtcw if they can join and wear the {MaC} sig.... cool or what? I'm doin us proud!

As far as I know there is no set req. for Clan {Mac} membership. I would guess that anyone in the MR forum community would be allowed automatic entry. I have also had people in Tactical-Ops ask me if they can join. Fun Stuff!

...the {Mac} clan webpage doesn't like Omniweb. IE works just fine though. btw, I would recommend spell-checking the page, and possibly "anit-zealoting" it a bit. I'm going to join tomorrow, but right now I need sleep. Good night.

Which one? The {Mac} Tactical-Ops site or the {Mac} Starcraft site?

Ah. Ok. I was not exactly sure which site he meant.

And in a totally unrelated post : Warcraft 3 is officially available and the prelim. results are in :

The game runs fine on a 8MB card and 400 Mhz! I'll be able to play it!

To be honest, I've never been to macrumors.com before now.

Your whole {Mac} clan has come as a bit of a surprise to me. I was idling in #mAc on irc.enterthegame.com, when a member of my clan starts spouting off websites that has this {Mac} clan thing going on.

Now, as far as I can tell, you started, mid June?. Now, don't get me wrong. I have no animosity towards you, and as a matter of fact, the clan *I* belong to not only has a very similar tag, {mAc}, and have been around for a little shy of three and a half years. I thought I would just like to stop by and say hello, and offer a little congratulations on another Macintosh gaming clan sprouting up. You can visit us at http://www.Clan-mAc.com.

We play primarily BroodWar, but with WarCraft 3 coming out, a lot of our members are playing that. We also play Vanilla StarCraft, RTCW, Q3, UT, D2, and D2X. However, we are by no means limited by this, and every once in a while we enjoy some bolo, or a little capture-the-skull on Marathon:AO=]

Of course, there could be a little confusion, since we are so similar.. mayhap your people could talk to my people, and we could do lunch and get to know each other a little better. ;)

In this particular thread though, I did notice that you mentioned a clan called MA. Do you mean Clan MacAddict? We have had a little contact with them (some inter-clan tournaments). Anyhoo, you will find my particular contact information in the profile here, and you can always post on our forums. Furthermore, you can stop by at the afore mentioned IRC channel if you would like to speak.

Hello SinVulture, welcome to macrumors!

I kind of figured that there was another mac clan with the {mAc} sig. I have seen some flying around while playing RtCW and have chatted with AK-47. I also run into members of clan MA frequently also. So far, from what I have experienced, mac gamers are a lot more friendly than pc gamers... i wonder why? lol

Anyway, I hope to see you around more often, either on these boards, or on one of the games. I usually play under {Mac}cHiBi or chibianh. See you around.

Ah, it seems we ought to have done our homework first. :) Well, since the tags are similar, I guess we could change our tag to [MR] or {MR} or something. I don't really care. :cool:

But you guys don't play Tactical-Ops : AoT on a regular basis, do you? :D

Yeah, sweet. The TO sig stands.

Also, hitman, I can't find any GZ servers. Is it some abbreviation for something?

Yeah, I have not been able to find any GZ servers as of late. "GZ" stands for "Ground Zero." It is another Tactical-Ops clan and their servers are very good.

I think we will keep the {Mac} tag for Tactical-Ops. :)

In a related note :

These are the IP addresses of the GZ servers :

unreal://146.20.43.142:7777
unreal://64.55.97.62:7777

I have not been able to play lately as I have been out of town, so I don't know if these addresses will work.

hey cHiBi, I remember you :D. I am a member for Clan {mAc} and a friend of Clan [MA] and I think it would be nice if you guys would join us instead of the {Mac}* clan your in. Some good reasons for that is because we ARE the biggest Macintosh clan on bnet right now and I doubt that you can get enough members to start tournaments and stuff. We are most likely a bnet(SC/BW and WC3) clan but we also play wolfenstein,ut and etc. I am the head of the Wolfenstein section and I am also trying to recruit more wolf players so we can set up a clan match with Clan [MA].
If anyone here would like to join us, the site is www.clan-mac.com (http://www.clan-mac.com) and the join form would be located HERE (http://www.clan-mac.com/join)
If you also want to join the Clan {mAc} wolfenstein section , the site is www.clan-mac.com/rtcw (http://www.clan-mac.com/rtcw) Joing would require you to send an email to me at mAc_Ak47@mac.com

Like hitman said, you don't have any TO players. That's pretty much all that I play online.
