View Full Version : Hire on Demand -- scoundrels, mercenaries, and scum of the galaxy

Here is a synopsis of Hire on Demand (http://republic.fragism.com/hireondemand), the original Star Wars: Battlefront clan.

THE CLAN (http://republic.fragism.com/hireondemand)
What are the requirements for joining?
There are a couple of requirements, and none of them are difficult.
--1. [HD] is a PlayStation2/PC clan. If there is enough demand, we may include an X-box division.
--2. No cursing will be tolerated. Not on the headset, not in the chatrooms. Slang and trash-talk are okay.
--3. Please don't submit any names of famous Star Wars characters. Role-play in-game will be encouraged, so use your imagination and come up with an original character.
Hire on Demand (http://republic.fragism.com/hireondemand) will be based on fun and consideration o other players. There is never any rules about how oten you must play or how skilled you are.
Is there a ranking system?
Currently, there is no ranking system due to the fact that players join and drop occasionally. There's nothing more frustrating than being a "recruit" on a team of "admirals", "vice-admirals", and "super-admirals".
Will [HD] be involved in ladder matches?
As soon as a good ladder is created and we have at least 10 members, we will play ladder matches.
Until then (or if the ladder is a flop), we will utilize the in-game conquest mode for clan wars.
This isn't going to be a huge, impersonal clan, is it?
Absolutely not. Our maximum number of players at any time will be 16. This way players will learn each other's voices and tactics and be able to play with each other regularly without wondering "what ever happened to <so-and-so>?"
What kind of tactical order can we expect?
For the fun of tactical combat, players will be separated into groups of four and given general objectives. Squads are as follows:
--Rancor Squad will be composed of footsoldiers and designated mainly toward defending captured outposts.
--Mynock Squad will be mainly pilots and will be in charge of air support and transport.
--Bantha Squad will be more soldier classes, but in offense instead of defense. Includes two specialist spots.
--Wampa Squad will be the snipers and their support.
Players will recieve a designation according to their squad.
How does your clan compare to others?
Hire on Demand (http://republic.fragism.com/hireondemand) will be very nOOb-friendly, as we were all once nOObs ourselves. That said, we will not have a complicated ranking system other than whatever the game provides (if any). We focus on fun rather competition amongst ourselves.
There will be some inside competition (there always is), but rather than let one person decide who's better and post it on a webpage, we'll let our players prove it on the battlefield.
We do not plan to have over 16 players -- this gets sticky, especially when you start appointing lieutenants, trainers, squad leaders, etc. There will be myself (Van Lingo, leader), my confidant (Max Weatherford, co-leader), and 14 other fun-seeking players.

THE PLAN (http://republic.fragism.com/hireondemand/warnews.htm)
Games like Counterstrike, Battlefield:1942, and SOCOM 2 have ladders and clan wars. Will [HD] have them, too?
Oh, yes. As stated before, if there is a decent ladder, we will be on it. If not, we will use the game's conquest mode and record the stats on our website.
How often and when will [HD] play?
Hire on Demand (http://republic.fragism.com/hireondemand) operates on Central Standard Time. We will play roughly three nights per week, usually around 9:00 or 10:00 PM. As with the X-box idea, if there is a need for a separate division for different times of the day, that's a later possibility.
Upcoming clan games will be posted on the "War News" section on the website.
What's with the "Tales" section on the website? Other clans don't have one...
That is a section reserved for background stories. It will be an archive of history for each player and eventually for fictions inspired by actual battles played.

THE MAN (mailto:txshurricane@yahoo.com)
Who is Van Lingo?
In the Star Wars universe, Lingo is a stereotypical smuggler. He has spent his share of time among well-known scoundrels such as Han Solo, Jivva Leea, Wade Vox, and other scum of the galaxy.
The Battle of Mindar will introduce Van Lingo as the leader of Hire on Demand (http://republic.fragism.com/hireondemand). It will be posted on the website's "Tales" section.
Who is Lingo is real life?
James M, a 21-year-old gamer from Beaumont, Texas.
Goes by the name [F5] Hitman on SOCOM 2 and VanLingo on the EA Games network.
Who is Max Weatherford?
Max will also be introduced in the Battle of Mindar tale.
He also goes by [F5] Troll on SOCOM 2 and ImDaTroll on the EA Games network.
He is an incredible sniper and will be very useful to [HD] as a vehicle/turret gunner.
What kind of experience does Lingo have?
-- X-wing Alliance: Scoundrels -- as Van Lingo
Scoundrels was my first clan. We flew in GameBattles.com's WeekOfWar, but dissolved due to inactivity shortly after.
-- Star Wars: Galaxies: Scoundrels -- as Van Lingo
During SWG's development, the Scoundrels were known as the first SWG clan on the Sony forums. After two years, we dissolved due to SWG's terrible final review.
-- SOCOM / SOCOM 2: Faction 5 -- as Hitman
One of the longest-running rosters on SOCOM, Faction 5 has enjoyed many victories and losses while managing to stay focused on fun.

This looks like a very promising clan. I will add you to my list in A Guide to Clans and wish to talk with you on AIM.

Thank you.

My AIM is mphHurricane. I am usually logged in. If I'm away, leave a message.

Or we can play e-mail tag.

what army are you using? rebs, imps, droids, or clones? I might join, but i thought the max for ps2 was 16(8v8) It sounds good, but I'll have to get more experience in the game beofre thinking about joining.

yaebginn
05-17-2004, 08:23 PM
I was thinking it over, and once I play the game a bit, I'd be glad to join. I mean, you do alot of role playing, which is fun, and yeah, it sounds fun. Um, I'd get it for the ps2. What army do we be? just tewll me and I'm in.

VanLingo
05-18-2004, 05:43 AM
(I tried to PM you, but it wasn't working for a while.)

The max for PS2 is 8 vs 8, but you'll very rarely ever get all 16 people on at one time. In the case that we do, we can just skirmish against each other.

As far as what army we'll be -- it's always a good idea to try all of them, for 3 reasons:
1. To know your way around each army's strengths/waknesses.
2. Sometimes the other team will whine until they get their favorite, which may be your favorite too.
3. If you jump into a game late, you probably won't get to pick, cause the game usually automatically keeps even teams.

But... if we ever get the choice, we will probably prefer the Clone Army. Rebels get second place.

nice, very well organized. Very creative. I dont know what squad to be best at, so if I'm in, I'll just go with regular infantry. I like your system and your way of thinking, how not everyone will be on at once. genius. Do I have to try out for it once the game comes out or is it first come first serve? Just looked at the roster, I'd like Rancor squad if possible. as a soldier.

VanLingo
05-18-2004, 03:39 PM
Not genius, just experience.
And, no, you don't need to tryout. As long as you can follow the 3 joining requirements.

yaebginn
05-18-2004, 03:43 PM
ok, I have a ps2 with network adapter. I am a christian, so I wont cuss, but if aggravated or excited enough, might spout out incomprehensible jibberish. and Yaeb Ginn is my role playing name.

Can I be in Rancor squad? Cause i'm not much experienced at much besides reg. infantry

VanLingo
05-18-2004, 11:55 PM
E-mail me with:

1. In-game name - Yaeb Ginn
2. Requested squad - Rancor
3. E-mail address

Anything else (such as location, age, etc.) we will gather later, once our roster gets a little heavier. Right now I just need the basics.

Oh, and: if your character has any kind of history, you are more than welcome to put it in short-story form and send it in. These will be viewable to everyone and gives us all an idea as to what kind of character you'll portray.

interested in joining too :)

Dont have an in game name yet :P

Doomie
05-19-2004, 10:28 AM
I might join... if the dutch clan won't work out well... Especially the 'tales' section intruiges me... Can we all write our own background story?

If i join you, Antakah might seee me as a traitor... But it seems like a good plan... Can you perhaps keep a spot open for me? Then i'll decide later.

yaebginn
05-19-2004, 12:04 PM
van lingo, I emailed you and gave you a background story, but if you'e gonna put it on the website, lemme brush it up a bit.

VanLingo
05-19-2004, 01:06 PM
Skuttle, I'll just list you as Skuttle. And I got your e-mail address. The last thing I need is what class you think you might prefer.

Doomgiver, in your case, I'll just mark a Reserved spot. But I need to know what spot you want.

Yaeb, I got your info. Just e-mail me the brushed-up version whenever you get done.

-- Lingo

yaebginn
05-19-2004, 01:07 PM
lingo, if once i buy the game or find out more about it, and the one who has the spot wants to trade, can i chnage spots?

VanLingo
05-19-2004, 01:25 PM
Of course. Positions may not even be permanent -- it depends on how the game is played out.

But there may be some positions (like pilot or sniper) that will depend on player committments.

yaebginn
05-19-2004, 08:02 PM
right, but right now, soldier seems best, but later, medic may seem better, or heavy weapons. I almoost definitely want to stay in rancor squad. imo, its the best squad. no offense to the other squads.
and when u gonna add me to the roster? not complaining, just curious. oh, and can I be a writer, too. I write on fanfiction.com and I used to suck, but my awesome idea for a story is on hold until a book comes out that'll give me info on kit fisto.

I live in the east coast, and I set the clock on the forum to central so i can keep track, but if we played at ten, I'd have to stay up really late. I mean, thats ok if its on friday night and maybe saturday night, but can we go more towards 8-9? Cause I have school, granted, my schedules lax due to homeschool, but I also have church sunday morning, so the earlier the better? can you try to do anything towards that, I know you have schedules, too, but can you do what you can?

skuttle and doomgiver, what r u gonna be? oh, and my friend wants to join, but he doesnt know what he wants to be yet, so once he calls me back, I'll let you know. so far, its between soldier, pilot, heavy weapon, and smuggler. I think he's leaning towards pilot, though. I'll let you know probably tomorrow.

Yaeb -- before I answer your questions, let me throw you a quick hint: If you're the last one to post, instead of posting again, you can use the Edit button to add onto your last message. Just make a new paragraph -- keeps things simple.
The Edit button is at the bottom of your post (kinda hard to see).

Now, to answer you --

when u gonna add me to the roster? not complaining, just curious.
You have been added to the roster. I just have to upload the page. By the time you read this, it should be updated.

oh, and can I be a writer, too. I write on fanfiction.com and I used to suck, but my awesome idea for a story is on hold until a book comes out that'll give me info on kit fisto.
You most definitely can be a writer. If you'd like, I'd be more that happy to help you edit your stories (no offense meant, but I'm an egghead for punctuation and spelling). Just send them in an e-mail, and I'll upload them and give you full credit.

can we go more towards 8-9?
This we'll have to see about. If you mean 8:00 or 9:00 Central time, that will probably be okay. But I'm not sure.
Don't get any warts over small issues like this just yet. I like my team to play together, so we'll get it worked out closer to September.

05-20-2004, 09:17 AM
yeah, I was talking to my friend, and I realized I dont have to play every time you guys play, I can go once or twice a week instead of thrice. it'll work. I'll call my friend today and see what he wants to be, cause he sounded really interested. how long does the site take to update? cause Im seeing nothing. Hey, other groups might not have medics, so far, only the rebs have them, so whats every1 else gonna do? say I'm a medic and we be the imps, would I be the imp match for medic or would I just be able to be whatever I wanted in that circumstance? Like, ony the rebs and possibly the clones have medics. clones is just guess, cause maybe the ARC will have medic skills. nm, I see it now. oh, the imps have a medic, the officer is their medic. arc is probly clones. and droids dont have one. when I'm bored, I re-read your description of the clan, man, it sounds good. Who is the newest sniper for wampa squad? is that skuttle? Oh, and my friend (who hasnt decided on what he wants to be yet) wanted to know if their are seperate leaders of each squad, or if its just you and max?

VanLingo
05-21-2004, 05:07 PM
On the battlefield, we may incorporate some more squad leaders. For now, though, it's just me.

yaebginn
05-21-2004, 06:15 PM
sounds good, I'm gonna call my friend, then edit this post and tell you what he wants to be. ok here is his stuff.
In-game Name- Sharpshooter (makes you think he wnats to be a pilot)
Position-Pilot in Mynock Squadron
Email- yaebginn@hotmail.com (I know this is mine, but he doesnt have an email, so i'll just show him the email when he comes over, if I have to, I'll get him an email, though)

VanLingo
05-21-2004, 10:02 PM
Okay, got it.

yaebginn
05-21-2004, 10:09 PM
sweet, I'll tell him how to get on the forum and stuff so he can participate without the middle man. (me) Expect to hear from him in two days.

05-22-2004, 04:42 PM
So, you guys are'nt sure if there will be xbox division yet? :jawa :jawa

yaebginn
05-22-2004, 08:49 PM
just read your mindar story, good job, so far. I'm gonna start writintg some once the game comes out. I'll basically write what happned inone of our battles, but embelish quite a bit. It'll be great. Building Inspectors blow.

VanLingo
05-23-2004, 05:25 AM
Thanks, Yaeb.

No, GlobalStrike, I'm not sure about the X-box division yet. I doubt it will happen, but you never know.

yaebginn
05-23-2004, 09:48 AM
So we're all on the same page, I wont be playing online until maybe a week after I buy it. (which'll be the day or one or two after it comes out) Cause I want to be able to get the controls the way I like them, play as each unit of every army, and just get...good. not great, but at least I'll know the terrain. I cant believe the game is so far away. Well, the summer flies by, right? man, septemeber, thats so far. Man, and episode 3 is even farther. whew.

VanLingo
05-23-2004, 01:58 PM
Yeah, I hear ya there. But it will be here before you know it.

As soon as you get your controls straight, it may be a good idea just to go ahead and get online. Or at least set the bot difficulty very high.
Playing against real players is waaay better practice. You can play against bots for six months and still suck online. Trust me on that one.

yaebginn
05-23-2004, 02:02 PM
Yeah, but I do want to get a feel for each army, that way I have an advantage, but as soon as I do, I'll be playing. I suck at SOCOM. I'm used to the controls of Conflict Desrt Storm, which is similar, but just different enough to screw you up. I'm stuck on the thrid level, where you have to take out that castle. My brother is gonna go in with me for the cord to hook it up to online. he wants it for socom and I want it for battlefront. hey, my frined'll come over later, and I'll put him on here. cya til then. he came over and I showed him the site. Lingo, do you read styar wars books? I'm a pretty good reader, too. I read LotR when I was in third grade, and while LotoR is better written, Star Wars books are the best, IMO. S.E. Hinton books are good, has anyone read SE Hinton?

Lemme start out with saying that I'm not editing my past post for two reasons. 1. to bump this thread and so van wouldn't think that this was my same post when it said last posted by. 2. it has nothing to do with my last post.

What are we gonna do with the droids? There are only five of them and all. I can see what we'll do with pilot, sniper and heavy weaopons. and maybe the medic can be a pilot, since he comes with a tool to fix droids. but what is the reg. infantry and spy gonna do? Here's my opinilon. reg infantry gets to be super battle droid, and spy bes the droideka. your opinions please.

I have mailed with VanLingo and he say that i'm be adding to the roster :D

cool! whats your position?

XoRRoX
05-27-2004, 11:48 AM
A sniper i hope.

I have wirtten my background story and i hope VanLingo can use it.

XoRRox

VanLingo
05-27-2004, 02:42 PM
XoRRoX, your story has been uploaded. I edited the punctuation for you -- some of it was a little bit off.

Yaeb, you bring up a very interesting point. But the positions are only temporary anyway; they're just to give us an idea of what the squads will look like.

Within the next four weeks or so, I will be sending out an e-mail that will define our structure a little bit more.

Remember, too, that we will be mercenaries for hire, which means that we probably won't be droids too often.

-- Lingo

XoRRoX
05-27-2004, 02:52 PM
I think it could be a good idea to have squad leaders? It could be chosen by the members in the clan in a voting

XoRRoX

yaebginn
05-27-2004, 04:02 PM
no, cause if say, I, rally secretly enough people, we culd pverthrow lingo, and he's a good leader, and he created the clan. It'd be mean to throw him out of power. if we were droids, I'd wanna be super, they look neat.

XoRRoX
05-27-2004, 04:06 PM
It was just a idea.
Being a droid looks perfect but i have sympathy to the rebels :D

XoRRoX

VanLingo
05-27-2004, 04:43 PM
Well, the last thing I'm worried about is an overthrow.

We will have squad leaders, but I'm going to be very, very careful about it.
We'll discuss it more when the forums go up in August.

yaebginn
05-27-2004, 04:47 PM
if you're not worried, then you are alot less paranoid then me. who is the reseved in rancor squad? no one is in wampa squad, that kinda blows. man, it just hit me, babies learn to speak. it sounds obvious, but think about it. we speak english, yet if I grew up in japan, I would be taught japanese, a language totlally strange to me. think about it.

05-27-2004, 05:14 PM

yaebginn
05-27-2004, 05:22 PM
any time.

VanLingo
05-27-2004, 05:43 PM
No problem, Blitz.

Yaeb, you'll see why I don't worry. I have every confidence in myself as a clan leader.

yaebginn
05-27-2004, 05:59 PM
but what if say, xorrox doesnt think so? what if he decides he can do better and maybe use his newfound power to take over star wars battlefront and eventually the world? then you're gonna feel like a big clown for not taking proper precautions.

VanLingo
05-27-2004, 06:18 PM
There's nothing I can do if someone wants to break off and make their own clan. In fact, I'll support them however I can.

But I've been running a SOCOM clan for about a year now, and I've only ever had one player quit. And the only reason he quit was to play on his friend's new team.

Clans have problems, but I have very few doubts that we'll be a very fun team to play with.

yaebginn
05-27-2004, 06:20 PM
ok, man, socom is hard. I sux at it.

XoRRoX
05-28-2004, 02:31 AM
welcome to the clan blitzwolf and i see we are both snipers :D

I Think it could be a good idea with squad leaders but VanLingo but be very carefull but i think he han handle that :D

XoRRoX

VanLingo
05-28-2004, 04:39 AM
Yeah, we'll need to be extra sensitive on that subject. And very picky.

At any rate, I thought you'd all like to know that I have successfully uploaded a full clan forum. We'll start using it later on down the road. For now, though, we don't want it to get congested with irrelevant info.

XoRRoX
05-28-2004, 11:30 AM
Sometimes i had think of if there ever will be a forum but is nice to hear that you have make a board :D

XoRRoX

yaebginn
05-28-2004, 11:45 AM
here's an idea, make a password on the forum, so only forum membes can get on, that way, we can make battle plans and no one can see.

XoRRoX
05-28-2004, 12:23 PM
it could be an idea but I think we will get a bad reputation if we do that.
Maybe we could do it only under strategy

XoRRoX

yaebginn
05-28-2004, 02:33 PM
or we could just all get AIM and plan that way.

XoRRoX
05-28-2004, 02:35 PM
why noy mIRC? Its most better i say

05-28-2004, 02:55 PM
what's that?

05-28-2004, 02:57 PM
you can read about it under "chat" in the frontpage of this site

05-28-2004, 03:03 PM
Don't worry -- I'm two steps ahead of you guys.
Our forum has three public boards -- General, Diplomacy, and Announcements.
It also has four members-only boards -- one for each squad, and a general Tactics board.

Other than that, we can just make stuff up on the fly with the headset.

XoRRoX
05-28-2004, 03:06 PM

I will also like to say that i first will get the game the 25rd September because thats my birthday :D

05-28-2004, 06:55 PM
i like making things on the fly. it makes us more adaptive and less predictable.

yaebginn
05-28-2004, 10:10 PM
but good planning can beat making things up anyday. even rag tag smugglers in Hutt Gambit made plans and drilled. it may seem cool to be spontaneous and not plan, but if you dont have a plan, you're going nowhere.

BlitzWolf
05-28-2004, 11:20 PM
i'm just saying if things go wrong it's always good to be able to adapt, but sticking to a plan is always the best thing. that way you know what you need to do when some one is doing something else and you stay as a team.

VanLingo
05-29-2004, 12:37 AM
Planning is good, but we'll need to spend quite a bit of time with the maps before we actually know what we're doing.

And Yaeb...the Hut Gambit was an EXCELLENT book, but it was all fake. Even if it was relevant, the Imps had orders to lose, remember?

Hello, Sharpshooter! Good to see you jump in on our discussions.

yaebginn
05-30-2004, 09:26 AM
well, the moff even said that he was glad that they were ordered to leave. at first he was sd, then near the end, he was impressed and a little worried. I'll tell sharpshooter the site name so he can get on more often. gt your email, van, I'll be on later tongiht

Yaebginn, what clan are you in? ORG or HaD?

yaebginn
05-30-2004, 06:58 PM
HD, I was thinking about ORG, but recently decided agaisnt it, I wish you and your clan best of luck. I'll go post that in ORG so there is no confusion.

new news! the smuggler now isnt the medic, the pilot now is. visit the rebels revisited thread in the battlefront forum. you're going to have to redo your roster somewhat. cause now the pilot is also the medic. and he has a scattergun. there now is no spy, and the wookie's medpac got replaced with a timebomb. read it.

VanLingo
05-30-2004, 10:10 PM
Nice... I like the idea. Now players are more of a handful (since there are only 8 per team anyway).

I'll update our website as soon as I have enough time. Thanks, Yaeb.

yaebginn
05-30-2004, 10:32 PM
anytime. I was excited when i read it. at least you pilots now at least have a chance on the ground. and now the soldiers have another way to blow things up.

problem, there's noly one guy in rancor, will I be excluded since mynock and wampa are near full? how are we going to work it if everyone on the clan comes to battle, plus one more so myncok is full. Then I'd be an outlier and what'll we do then, we have to have some way of working it all out. Oh, my cousin might join

If you make forums I will be a represenative from the IEF if boran lets me.

06-03-2004, 12:24 PM
Whatever Van Lingo says, but its fine with me. Has anyone ever read Plague Dogs? about those two dogs who escape from an Animal Research Facility? That book is good.

VanLingo
06-03-2004, 06:51 PM
To clear some things up --

Yaeb, the roster is going to get re-worked later on. Until then, I'll probably just make a list of members to post.

And as for the forums, I guess I'll go ahead and release the URL. It is (drumroll please): http://swbattlefront.netfirms.com/cgi-bin/YaBB/YaBB.pl
I'll link it soon.

LukeKatarn, once you register I will make you the IEF emissary to our clan. Unless Boran disagrees.

good, just getting a bit worried that our members arent here, good to know that they are.

Van Lingo, you're from texas, right? Only steers and queers come from texas, and you dont look like no steer to me.

VanLingo
06-05-2004, 06:03 PM
You've never seen me before. It's not wise to call a Texan a queer.

That was pretty funny -- I was just fooling around. Good movie, btw.

As you are well aware the Imperial Expeditionary Force and the clan Hire on Demand have been having a little rough relationship lately and I am here to heal these wounds.

Van Lingo has done an excellent job creating this clan and the Imperial Expeditionary Force rechognizes Hire on Demand as a truly great clan.

It is one of my core beliefs that the only way to survive in the clan world is to be friendly with other clans. One of my past clans was brought down simply because I took a very hard stand towards other clans and my clan was simply hated. This is never a good situation to be in and is why I have posted here right now.

The Imperial Expeditionary Force is prepared to offer a deal. The clan Hire on Demand will no longer post anything negative on the IEF thread and in return the IEF will continue not to post anything negative on the HD thread and will not say anything that would give you a reason to post negative things about the IEF. The IEF will now use "One of, if not the strongest clan for Star Wars Battlefront" rather than "Greatest clan in Star Wars Battlefront".

Van Lingo, if you truly want to run a successful clan. If you truly want to excel in the clan world. If you truly want to be friends with the IEF then you will agree to this proposal.

If you fail to agree to this than sour relations will unfortinately continue between our two great clans. The IEF will stand its ground and the IEF will defend itself. Though I never wish for confrontation I will accept it if it is needed. These daily negative attacks about me and the IEF will no longer be allowed by the IEF.

Once again, the IEF wishes only to be friends with other clans. I would personally like to talk to you about these issues on AIM, however you are never on. Please Van Lingo, for the sake of our two clans respond favorably to this posts and, together, our two clans can lead the way in this growing clan world and truly create a place where all clans can be formed, grow and develop.

Your friend

I got trouble with your forums, it gives the message it cant find the site often.

Any idea's?

VanLingo
06-16-2004, 05:41 PM
When it does that, it means that the bandwidth is weak or there's maintenance on the server.

Just hit Refresh once or twice and it should load up the next cgi.

Sharpshooter --

Our schedule after September will be up to squad leaders (after we pick them) and will be according to when you are available to play.

Our first two weeks after release will be scheduled by me. I'll put the schedule up on the website within the next few weeks.

He has a point about the headsets. cause a few o us have never used them. You have, but I know for a fact that at least him and I havent. Think about it, I have no idea what you sound like, it may come as a bit of a shock. What if you sound like a girl? I imagine you sounding like a guy, it'd be confusing.oh, speaking of headsets, Imay not say alot at a time, cause I mumble and when i say alot of words at one time, I trail of and mumble incorherently.

VanLingo
06-17-2004, 09:59 AM
lol

Don't worry, you get used to it pretty quick. At first it's strange to hear a voice right in your ear.

What's neat is that you'll quickly learn other players' voices. You'll probably know me right away -- I'm from Texas.

06-17-2004, 10:19 AM
k, hey, if you're on, I saw your name on the list of foruers, why dont you go on AIM, just double click the little aol man. nice site, man. I was just browsing around, its nice as anything. The hire us thing is very unique. I like it.

Sharpshooter
06-18-2004, 06:10 PM
Thanks for giving me the info Val. That's cool that your from texas. I have cousins that live there.:cool:

Hey Val, I almost forgot to ask you if when we played as the clones I could be an ARC. I think that's what they're called.



And the new website is awesome!



The seperatists and Imperials shall fall!

yaebginn
06-18-2004, 06:36 PM
hey, man, nice to see you, glad u remebered to get on. hey, next time you forget something, look at the bottom left where it says edit, just click that and type what you want to. also, I forgot to show you, also check out the Battlferont forum for info on the game. its 3 above the clan forums.

VanLingo
06-19-2004, 01:28 AM
Heck yea, you can be an ARC! Once they release info on the Republic, I can assign you a better title.

06-19-2004, 05:20 PM

No cursing.

06-19-2004, 05:58 PM
SORRY!:D

HEY EVERYONE! It's weird how the seperatist rebellion is evil, but the rebellion against empire is good. I wonder ho the second one started?:D

Hey val, can you tell me how I can write my characters origins on our website?

Yaeb check your email.

yaebginn
06-19-2004, 11:16 PM
ok, sharp, a few things. 1, you gotta edit out your cuss word. two, next time, instead of typing five things in a row, just hit the edit button and type what you want to add. its a small button on the bottom left. Oh, man, I just saw the terminal, so I'll call you tomorrow, k? I'll go check my mail.

Sharpshooter
06-20-2004, 01:59 PM
Got your mail man thanks!:D

Hey val, you haven't been on lately. Wassup?:D

VanLingo
06-21-2004, 03:18 AM
I've been here and there -- mostly working on the website.

To answer your question: write your character's bio as a .doc (Word format). Then I can post it on the website.

Sharpshooter
06-21-2004, 04:03 PM
cool! thanks!:D

yaebginn
06-25-2004, 01:50 PM
for clones, there is no regular guy, so what would I be? ARC or Jetpack? Same for droids. For each, I'd rather be jetpack and super battle droid. but that depends on what the ARc does.

Sharpshooter
06-25-2004, 04:47 PM
I belive the ARCs get jetpacks. And yeab, I finished AGENTS OF CHAOS2: JEDI ECLIPSE!:D

yaebginn
06-25-2004, 04:51 PM
Thats the jetpack trooper, here I'll make a thread in our clan forums for Miscellanious Battlefront Speculation, and instead of barging in on other's posts, we can just post there. k?

Sharpshooter
06-25-2004, 08:52 PM
Sounds cool!:D

wheres van lingo been this past week or so?

Sharpshooter
07-05-2004, 05:17 PM
Yeah man, I mean he just disappeared with out a trace! And I think I'll either be an ARC, Or a jet pack trooper! I've been practicing on Starwars Bounty Hunter for the PS2!:D

VanLingo
07-07-2004, 07:08 PM
I'm here. I told you I was leaving for a week, Yaeb. But I'm back.

07-08-2004, 05:18 PM
You say you dissolved in XWA due to inactivity?
Battlestats.com Week of War is still going strong even now for a game that old.
So you wern't very commited to it if you gave it such a small attention!

VanLingo
07-09-2004, 04:45 AM
What are you, the Gamer Police?

If you absolutely must know, we played one Week of War, then quit because we couldn't accept all the challenges that we got.

In the end, it was either work or play. I had (and have) college bills, so sometimes I can't "committ" myself very well.

VanLingo
08-04-2004, 08:37 PM
Cut down the chatter, fellas.

MasterClone, I got your e-mail. However, I also saw your post in the Clone Army for Hire thread.
It seems to me that you're mass posting clan threads until you get picked up.
I don't want free agent players, I want players that have a genuine interest in Hire on Demand. Show me that you are serious and I'll consider your application.

yaebginn
08-05-2004, 12:22 AM
You have to email him with the name you will be called in the game. Mine is Yaeb Ginn. you gotta give your email address, and give what squad you'd like to be in.

1. In game name
2. Email
3. Squad you want to be in.

08-06-2004, 02:23 PM
i typed that one. i'll just give u my info here. My email is Stlouistex2004@yahoo.com.
I would like to be a pilot or if i can't get that then i want to be a sniper. I 'm not sure what i want my name to be in the game .

hey van lingo i emailed u and i'm not sure if u added me to your clan. I checked the rosters and i didn't find my name or any of my friends i referred. i referred 3 friends .One , i told to email u today and the other one i haven't got a hold of him. Today I found another one of my friends who wants to join your clan too. You should get an email from him in a few days.

VanLingo
08-08-2004, 02:51 AM
I haven't been able to really update everything for a while. My internet is being transferred, so this is my last night until Wednesday that I will be able to do anything online.

Next weekend should see some good updates, on the site and the roster.

If i have a choice, can i be in the Mynock squad?

yaebginn
08-14-2004, 11:38 PM
I dunno, check the roster and see if there are any openings. I think there is one for pilot, ask Lingo about it.

Neon
08-24-2004, 10:17 AM
Should I look for a clan here on the forums, or should I wait untill I can play the game? I think the 2th is the best, isn't it?

yaebginn
08-24-2004, 11:51 AM
It depends. If you wait, you can see how good the clan you want to be in is in action. But there are two downsides to waiting.

1. The clan you want to be in may be filled up.
2.You wouldnt have had as much time to grow with the clan and get to know your clan members.

Neon
08-24-2004, 02:27 PM
Well, can I join still join this clan? I am a good pilot in jedi academy, more I don't know yet, untill I played it. But I will play this game a lot. That's for sure

yaebginn
08-24-2004, 02:59 PM
email van lingo at txshurrican@yahoo.com and ask him.

jjedimaster132
08-24-2004, 04:36 PM
I don't think there r any more need of pilots. I reffered a friend about this clan and he is going to be a pilot.I am also going to a pilot.

Neon
08-24-2004, 05:22 PM
And I'm also going to be a pilot. Nothing to do about it.

jjedimaster132
08-24-2004, 05:29 PM
Did u talk to Van lingo?

Neon
08-24-2004, 06:00 PM

And I'm trying to contact him.
Meh, don't be so childish.

easy guys, remember, anyone can fly a ship. even a soldier.

Schetter
08-25-2004, 12:40 AM
DogGy - among other factors, first and foremost in your case would be to find a clan that's based in your area - namely Europe. If you join a North American clan that plans on being competetive, then you're going to be expected to play some matches that are going to take place VERY late where you are.

If you're in Belgium like your thing says, then I suggest ORG. If I remember it right they are a Belgium based clan.

Yeah, they are based in the netherlands, a dutch clan, very nice.

jjedimaster132
08-25-2004, 12:30 PM
Then join that clan. i've looked around and i 've noticed that u have asked to join alot of clans. You need to pick one clan and stick with it

08-31-2004, 08:39 PM
Yaeb is back we hope to stay, but don't expect to see VanLingo back any time soon.
TK-8252, get out of my thread. I'm back -- sorry to bust your moderator bubble.:rolleyes:

I've gotten a couple of e-mails, and those who I'll let tryout will be added to the roster ASAP.

Anyone who is serious about joining needs to show some activity in our forums so that when I update, I can see who's still hanging around.

I have elected to avoid posting on these forums for reasons that *certain people* have squelched me from saying. Please post anything important on our forums or you can e-mail me.
The website has been revamped, and everything will be current in time for release. Make sure you're ready as well.

Van...

I have every right to be in this thread. Especially considering that I'm a Moderator for this forum, so don't tell me to get out, alright?

Considering that you were already banned once, you shouldn't be pushing your luck any further by causing more trouble. If you do, don't be suprised if you find yourself banned again - permanently this time. You should thank Jed for being so forgiving. If it wasn't for him, you would still be banned.

Agreed, it's TK's duty as the moderator in these forums to be active in the threads and on the boards. He was merely relaying a message that was passed through the mod ranks, your ban wasn't necessarily a temp ban, so he was informing everyone else of it. Calm down and just give up your pointless agression towards the mods and supermods and we'll leave you alone in turn. :dozey:
