PokeBase Battle Subway Meta-PokeBase Q&A

A suggestion: Clans?

14 votes

Ok this might sound stupid but it's really a follow up to the DB League as that's not even active anymore. So everyone really liked the League it was quite popular until like a month ago. Well I bet some people out there who still like a bit of a competition that's not a tourney.

Basically the idea is to have Clans and they can battle each other to get a higher stop on the Clan ladder. The #1 Clan on the ladder is obviously the best Clan. I idea isn't too have all the good battlers in one Clan, like Mew and Sf and Blobyolo and Kyron, but to get some noobs and help them improve so they become better. Each Clan will have a Clan leader, who the Clan elects. Usually the best battler but I don't know.

People can join a max of 2-3 clans at a time. Anyone can be accepted into their first Clan that they choose, but if you want to switch or join another that Clan has to accept you, either the Clan leader says yes, or you prove your skill to a worthy member of the Clan. Hopefully not every tries join one Clan, because someone like Mewderator is in it.

Anyway this is my general layout of the plan, hopefully some people will take this idea into consideration. I know it sounds a little stupid, but give it a try, at least? :)

yo mew + mike, since you two are kind of noobs, you can join my clan and i'll help you improve!! :)
Guys, I have a question: Since people in Clans are kinda there to learn, is that going to mess up the Tutor and Apprentice thing if a tutor and his/her apprentice are in different Clans?
Tutor's can still teach Apprentices. Clans don't really separate people, just so they can battle with other people and such.
Cool. But I think I read that you can join two or three. Maybe only one at a time.

I may be mistaken about that.
Mmm. good Idea! If only my wi-fi was more efective XD

And let us not forget B3N, Kyron, and Flame, that I suggested this long ago but never posted due to the disapproval of SF and Mike. This idea is currently popular due to the League's major slow (DT has seem to forget about it). Just thought Id recall these factors. Anyhow, I suggest that we respark the League and establish Clan Captains based off of the 8 Gym Leaders, except with a NEW Tournament hosted by another Daily Active Mod such as Mike. TBH I never wanted DT to run the League as I forsaw the outcome.

Anyhow, I agree of a DB Clan. However, I can see the separate Clans idea developing into feuds. That is not a great idea. A DB Clan should include everyone, as we are all apart of the DB. Here is the System that Kyron and I developed long ago when we thought of it:

The DB Clan was going to be divided into Teams based off Tier, and the number of each member in a team would be based off the number of Pokemon in each tier. The minimum amount of Members are 3 and the Max 5. The collective Teams will make up the Clan as ONE whole. Note that as a C
*For example NU would have 5 Memberrs as the largest Tier and RU only 3 as the smallest.

Each Subdivisional Team will have its own Ranking System as also mentioned above. Similar to "Seats" of Band and Orchestra, the Member with
a.) Clearly displayed Superiority Knowledge, Experience, and Records
b.) Dedication (Activeness on the both the DB and respective simulator)
c.) Recomendations or Votes from Mod, Expert, Editor, or Normal users (a Mods Vote worth more than an Editors, an Editors worth more than an Experts, and so forth)
will be deemed Captain, the Leader of the Clan.
The Second, Third, [Fourth and Fifth] Seats will have to apply to the Captain and meet his designated conditions to become apart of the Team.

The Captain is, as said before, thr Leader. He or she is responsible for arranging Team Building sessions, Tutoring opportunities, etc. They must be active and should appoint the 2nd Seat to comand if they must be Inactive.

Note that each Team only Specializes in a Tier: it is not a restriction from others. An OU Team can still compeye in NU; they just SPECIALIZE in OU.

Each Team should NOT be divided from the other. The Teams are together a Clan, and shoupd still interact and operate as a whole. This system is just unique in in depth Ranking, in which to encourage Memebrs to get better.

And yes, you can also move up in Rank. You can challengr someone for their Seat.

This is how Kyron and I developed it. I personally Promote this idea.

Erickhill I perfectly get your point, and it's understandable. I'm not saying I hate this idea and it's a pile of crap and the idea and you are retarded and blah blah blah, I'm saying it's not perfect and I thought maybe I could pitch in and point out a few flaws to help out with your idea.

For using Blobyolo and JirachiCelebiMew as the Experts, I meant it as an example. I know we have Hex and Trachy and Mew and whoever else. Also, I'm not going to be rude over something like this. I never will be, I know how critisism (Or critical hits xD) makes others feel, I've been a part of it myself.

Poke'slash, I really get your point of how this could become a rivalry between users and actually your first point was just what I was trying to get through. It won't be socially fit to have someone who's playing RU all the time to drop it for a bit and start sharpening up on their OU and expect people to just deal with it or accept it or whatever.  

Anyway if I am being rude, I am sorry. I'm just trying to get a little point across. I removed my downvote as I realize it was pointless and I was being a bit childish doing that. Anyway I hope I got my point across.
so many long comments...
I dont think anyone would judge, im the proclaimed King of Monotype here at the base yet no one judges me when i get whooped by Mew at OU,UU, or NU XD. Seems kind of a stupid thing to judge people on dont you think?
Yes it is 100% idiotic to not judge you for winning against me in OU :P jk
Also, thanks for the slap in the face. *thumbs up*

Has no influence with everyone leaving all at once. It wasn't that I was "Forgetting about it," though I acknowledge that it was slow.
