Gunslingers ~ The Diablo III Clan for Adults.

  • #21
    I am on board! Just joined up.
    *COUGH COUGH* To the cloud!
  • #22

    The Gunslingers is an oasis for parent and hard working adult gamers from around the world that was formed back in June, 2007. The underlining goal of our group is to create a gaming environment that is fun yet civil and friendly for mature, casual gamers. It is a goal far too uncommon in the gaming community, and is not often honestly sought. For anyone wishing to escape the lulls of silly clan probation periods, distinct divides in community ranks, unrealistic demands of attendance, and continual ugliness of clan wars, the Gunslingers is your haven. We have attracted thousands of like-minded adults, so you are not alone in your wants.

    The fruit of the Gunslingers is being continuously surrounded by folks sharing your general gaming wants and perspectives. There is plenty of obligations and negativity wishing to take up your time in your career, in your personal life, and certainly during your online travels. It doesn't need to be that way. The Gunslingers clan, however existential as it may seem, seek to inject some positivity and even escapism in your daily obligations. Come. Kick your feet up. Decompress. Be merry! Everyone deserves that, and, regardless if you are new to online gaming or a veteran, you will be welcomed by the rest of us. Share in our cheer!

    Gunslingers - We are THE Diablo 3 clan for adults.

    For fellow older gamers viewing the Gunslingers recruiting thread for the first time, here is our clan's information message reposted:

    www.gunslingergaming.com

    INTRODUCTION

    Are you interested in socializing with Diablo 3 players your age but haven't been able to "weed out" all the adolescent gamers? Have you been unable to join traditional, time-consuming clans because, being responsible adult, you have had to juggle your free time with going to college, taking care of children, or being employed in a full time job? In short, are you interested in an online experience akin to "shooting the bull" with a group of drinking buddies? If so, then Diablo 3 Gunslingers is the right place for you!

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    MEMBERSHIP

    We are fortunate to have over 4,000 adults registered on our homepage.

    We have a large collection of parents. We have a large collection of married couples. We have a large collection of mature, casual gamers. And we have a large collection of hard working men and women members.

    If you would like to join the club, you need only to fulfill two things:
    1. Be at least 18 years of age or older.
    2. Register your membership at our forum: http://www.gunslingergaming.com/phpbb



    That's it! We don't ask for resumes, character ranks, probation periods, or any other sort of silliness. You just want to have fun, right? So do we! If you would like to learn more about membership with the Gunslingers, feel free to visit our "Membership" page of at our website:
    http://www.gunslinge.../howtojoin.html




    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    GUIDELINES

    We like to ascribe the Gunslinger experience akin to having drinks with some buds after work or partying with them on the weekends. Nothing stops the music faster than a few knuckleheads, so we do have a few guidelines we expect people to follow during their stay:
    • Pornographic and/or obscene material is prohibited.
    • Self promotion by new members will likely be treated as spam. This includes promotion of own non-commercial websites.
    • No personal attacks on other members or various sorts of offensive behavior is allowed.
    • No glitching/hacking/cheating. We define such as purposefully accessing the game's programming or abusing a flaw in the programming to achieve an act or status that is not intended or possible otherwise.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    CLAN FEATURES

    The Gunslingers experience is as simple and non intrusive as joining up with other adults your own age and playing some games at your convenience.

    The Fall is right around the corner. Do you know what that means? It is almost time for the gaming season! As you get back to the grind, the Gunslingers invite fellow older gamers to decompress with players their own age and of their own time restraints.

    WELCOME TO THE GUNSLINGERS AND THANK YOU ALL FOR JOINING!!!

    Again, if you are a gamer over the age of 18 who is looking for a group of like-minded adults who understands the concept of gaming around taking care of children and working a full time job, you are sincerely invited to join the Gunslingers!

    The Diablo 3 Clan for Adults.

    Just signed up! Looks like a great group of guys I look forward to playing with.

    Gunslingers can mean many things. For example, you can spell out "Gunslingers" through binary code. What does it look like? Well, when you break down the word in zeros and ones, it looks like the following:

    0100011101110101011011100111001101101100011010010110111001100111011001010111001001110011

    Check it out for yourself! That is computer (read: geek) talk saying Gunslingers.

    Of course, we aren't computers. We are people. And, if you happen to sling those in-game arrows while drinking some brews, it may be more apt to use breweries from around the world to spell out Gunslingers considering we have members from all corners of the globe:

    Guinness [Ireland]
    Us Heit [Netherlands]
    Neustadt Springs [Canada]
    Stone Brewing [United States]
    Löwenbräu [Germany]
    Ivan Taranov [Russia]
    Nynäshamns Ångbryggeri [Sweden]
    Good Bastards Brewery [New Zealand]
    Exmoor [United Kingdom]
    Ried im Innkreis [Australia]
    Søgaards Bryghus [Denmark]

    However you spell it, the Gunslingers clan is about gaming exclusively with fellow adults while enjoying your free time. We are laid back, friendly, and quite active. Most importantly, we are inviting you to join us.

    To join, simply register at our clan's site. Take a look around. Nearly all of our content is viewable as a guest because we have nothing to hide. The openness is a reflection of how you will treated during your stay.

    The Gunslingers clan is about having a good time. Let other groups worry about social hierarchies based on kill/death ratios. The fundamental benefit of gaming with a group of fellow adults who treat each other with respect, don't take the game too seriously, and are willing to share in the good cheer is that we are all about our members.

    Case in point. Member Spotlights. Every month, we randomly select an active Gunslinger to interview and get to know in ways that may not normally be brought up while raiding the public matches. September's edition of said feature is none other than our long time member and good friend, bigfreddy!

    You are welcome to read the interview (and past ones) in the Gunslingers Blog: http://gunslingergaming.com/wordpress/

    If you are reading this message and are looking for a gaming experience away from the drama and the bickering children, you are welcome to join the Gunslingers! Stop by our home-base and take a look around. If you like what you see, register in our forums to get slinging with the rest of us!

    WELCOME TO THE GUNSLINGERS AND THANK YOU FOR JOINING!!!

    "Older" Gunslinger members (a phrase that has a couple meanings for a clan comprised exclusively of adults), remember they are just like you and me. They have joined up with GS in hopes to game with fellow laid-back gamers, so check out the Master Lists, scroll to the bottom of the list, and send out those invites to our newest members! Show them just how friendly we are. :)

    When recruiting, I usually speak of all the ways that the Gunslingers clan is the perfect fit all the mature, casual gamers out there. Let's deviate from the norm this time around and take a look at some of the interesting facts about us GS*Goppfather has observed during his two year stay with us.

    The following portion is from his "Gopp's 2-Year Anniversary" thread:

    *In the 3 games that I have played the most since joining GS......there have been 4805 “Good Game” posts in the threads for those respective games. 4805!!! That’s 396 pages of “good game” posts!

    * I have had AT LEAST 300 different PSN friends on my friends list at one time or another; all GS members.

    * “The Lounge” thread alone has had over 7000 posts since I became a member.

    * If my count is right, GS has featured 27 games in the time I have been here.

    * There has been at least ONE GS romance that I’m aware of! (that does NOT include the numerous bro-mances that go on around here).

    * At least 400 Spam-bots have been destroyed by Murph and the GS staff.

    * When I became a member I knew exactly ZERO people who live in foreign countries. I would now consider AT LEAST 15 GS members from different countries to be dear friends.

    * There have been approximately 1000 signature banners made by GS members for either themselves or other members.

    * Personally, I have played 14 different game titles with GS members and have logged over 1000 hours of total game time with fellow ‘Slingers. (wow, way too much!)

    * I’ve gamed with members from 27 US states that I'm aware of (California, Oregon, Washington, Montana, Idaho, Arizona, Kansas, Wyoming, Nebraska, Missouri, Minnesota, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Tennessee, Georgia and Kentucky).


    Fellow older gamers from around the world, you are invited to make your online gaming experiences this fulfilling. Life is too short not to be having a good time, on your own schedule. Join us. :)

    Do you guys have many people still playing D3 regularly?

    Seems just like something I'm after. I love D3 but it would be nice to chat to some like minded people at the same time as playing.

    Never even knew a group like this existed.
  • #35
    We have a special edition of New Member Round-Up this time around. Already, the Fall season of gaming has proven that more and more adults are grabbing controllers and seeking out a gaming experience exclusively with a like-minded older crowd. We have showed our appreciation towards folks joining the Gunslingers with "New Member Round-Up" announcements for some time now, and I am proud to announce that we have collectively set a new GS record last week!

    In just seven days (September 16th, Sunday to September 22nd, Saturday), 113 gamers joined the overall Gunslingers clan!

    In fact, the list of fellow mature, casual gamers who have become GS members between September 13th to September 24th is so epic I will, for the first time, simply provide a link to it:
    http://www.gunslingergaming.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=10465&p=122433
    [*New Member Count: 149]

    WELCOME TO THE GUNSLINGERS AND THANK YOU ALL FOR JOINING!!!

    You will all be happy to hear that nearly ALL of these greenhorns have already contributed to the Master Lists and/or group discussions. New and established members alike, take this unique opportunity to check the Master Lists and Introductions sections of the GS Forums to get gaming with each other. We are all here for the same reasons, so now is no time to be shy! :fatgrin:

    Long live the gamers who are proudly long in tooth.

    Frosty Pints, the tradition of GS members grabbing their pick of poison and celebrating the end of the work week in some crazy public raids, has been a part of us since 2008. It is one of our defining characteristics. We even have an entire site page dedicated to information about Frosty Pints.

    But there is a chance that page may simply be overlooked. That is why we are inviting all fellow mature, casual gamers to join in on the fun! Every Friday and Saturday, stop by and be a part of Frosty Pints. Let us know around what times you plan to be hitting up the online gaming!

    Be Merry!

    Being part of a gaming group is more than simply playing a specific game together. That randomly happens anyway, right? It is what type of folks you surround yourself with that matters. The Gunslingers is exclusively for mature, casual adults to enjoy gaming with each other outside of their busy schedules.

    Below, I have highlighted three of our most recent community-minded updates that showcase the type of laidback crowd you will be hanging out with at the Gunslingers.

    1.) Frosty Pints. Every weekend, we celebrate the end of another tiring work week by grabbing some brews and gaming. Heck, the newest installment in our GS Arcade is called "Beer Dude." Help the Commodore 64 style hero collect all the frosty pints while you wait for the weekend to start!

    2.) Diverse members. One of the great things about being part of a large clan exclusively for like-minded adults is that we all have different hobbies, work experience, and talents. Take our long time member, GS*Captain Scarlet, for example. He has just published his first novel entitled The 5th Amulet. We are so stoked to support his professional level of creativity that we have dedicated a GS site page to the novel.

    3.) Hilarious Good Times. Sometimes, the laughs shared while playing bleed into the GS communication tools such as our text chat and forum pages. Case in point: we have been poking fun at GS*Goppfather for referring to ANYTHING science fiction or fantasy in theme as "wizards." That is why we, for the entire month of October, are holding the Goppfather Loves Wizards Banner Contest. He has to display the winning banner in his forum signature for thirty days. LOL

    So, join the adult and parent clan that is actually about having good times, good laughs, and good games. Gaming is what you make it. Why not keep it fun and on your own schedule?

    Additionally, we randomly select a member to interview in the GS Blog every month to get to know more about each other outside of the in-game experience. October's edition features Hermit Grimm! You can read more about him here: http://gunslingergaming.com/wordpress/?p=449

    We aren't the #1 clan for parent and hard working adults for nothing.

    Halloween is such a fun time of the year. No demands of driving across the country to have dinner with relatives with whom you barely get along. No double checking the checkbook to see if you give the obligatory presents. No, Halloween is all about dressing up and partying.

    Every year, the Gunslingers give a nod to the macabre holiday but adding tweaks to our clan. You will see Halloween-themed images throughout our site's pages, a whole gallery of Halloween-themed avatars new and established members can choose from, a series of Halloween smileys members can use while posting in our forums, and even a Gunslinger Theater that features full streaming versions of public domain classics like George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead, Francis Ford Coppola's Dementia 13, and many others! You can even enjoy GS chat while you watch! We are installing a new Halloween game in our custom GS Arcade every week of October. "Monster Time" and "Graveyard Panic" have been added so far this month.

    So, why are doing all of the above? Isn't it all about the game? True, the Gunslingers are around to enjoy the gaming experience exclusively with fellow older gamers, but we believe the clan experience should be focused on the fun and social aspects of gaming. And we carry that to all our communication tools after logging out of the game.

    You are invited to join the party.
