Welcome to our clan. We are the biggest and best clan in Demigod, and arguably the only clan with any hope of survival. What is our goal? To get games going without the ridiculous wait times, meet lots of cool people, and last but not least, have lots of fun. If you want a clan based on skill, you won't find one in this game.

Q: Are you the clan leader?

No, absolutely not. GM worked as a democracy, and the same deal goes here - majority rules. I am just your Public Relations (PR) guy. I have noticed that having a solid PR guy does keep the clan intact, and I have made sure I am pretty much accessible and visible as often as I can. I am on msn, xfire, skype, facebook and vent. If you need to find me, you probably will find me and of course I'll allow you to find me. Just ask if you're interested. 

Q: What is the recruitment process?

There is no recruitment process, we will accept anyone who wants to join. Just add the tag, hop onto vent, say Hi and I'll add you on here. If you want I can serenade your entrance to the clan with a song of your personal choice, but it must be Top 40.

Q: Are there any rules?

1. Be nice, be respectful of others. I understand trash talking is part of the game for some, but please don't extend it to something personal. It's just a game after all.

2. Unless there is an agreement among the players in the game, please play balanced games. I understand that completely balanced games are probably not possible at the moment, but try to make it as balanced as possible.

3. Have fun! 

If there are anymore questions, feel free to ask away!

 

Here are the current members of OMG (in alphabetical order):

 

OMG_awuffleablehedgie (a.k.a. OMG_BlackHatHedgehog)

So I used to refer to him as waffles, because I always thought his name was supposed to relate to waffles. Apparently, I was wrong. He's wuffleable - which means huggable apparently. I'm not sure how a hedgehog is huggable, but I guess it is in his world. Hedgie is his nickname, and he's probably the coldest person in this clan, but once you get used to his cold exterior, he turns out to be a really nice guy. He just has these awkward mood swings, where he's super energetic around 10pm EST, and then after 12am, he tends to be super cynical, and then after 3am he turns on his seductive bedroom voice. If you feel offended by him, don't be, because he's just a hedgehog. If you have any questions about any statistical stuff in Demigod, Hedgie knows all. It's actually kinda scary.

OMG_Blackmage (a.k.a. OMG_synnworld)

OMG-CaptainTaco

Taco was an important addition to the clan because he provides the comic relief for everyone. Just look for his posts and you will instantly know what I mean. He likes to describe himself as a terrible DG player, but he only says that just so his opponents will let their guard down and then Taco can strike. I always knew he was a sneaky guy, right when I saw his Pedobear avatar. As you can tell from his name, he loves Tacos but I'm not sure how strong that love is. In fact, none of us really know if his love for Tacos is stronger than tacoguy's. That is a question up for further discussion.

OMG_Defenz

A player from Vancouver. That's all I really know so far but if you're Canadian then that automatically makes you cool.

OMG-dontforgetyourpeanuts

I have a feeling this guy is loaded.

OMG_Epiphenomenon

Epi is what we all call him, so I suppose that's his nickname. He's the brains of the group, Mr.PhD in computer science. I will be joining him in September (hopefully if I survive the summer) but until then he is above me academically. I shall be your colleague soon Epi! He is the voice of reason. He's very mature and civilized, so I'm not really sure why he's a gamer (haha juust kidding). He is currently my academic advisor, even though he never agreed to it. But who cares, I'm sure he'll agree cause he's a nice guy. If you need academic advice, I suggest you go to Epi.

OMG-howboutnoooo

We all call him Max, because that's his name. He is the dog of the family - and that is not to say that he plays an unimportant role. Dogs are a man's best friend and they are extremely friendly, just like Max. Sometimes when you listen to him you might think he's on LSD, but really he's naturally just like that. He sees the world in magical ways, and he opens up your mind to a whole new world. He's also extremely active - as in he's pretty hyper and is always energetic until around 11pm when he usually goes to bed. I initally made fun of Max for sleeping so early as a teenager, but once I realized how much energy he spends just talking I understand why he's exhausted by the end of the day. If you are feeling down, go talk to Max. He is the guy in the clan who will cheer you up.

OMG__IN1

OMG_Jackho

OMG_Jona

Jona is just Jona. He's the drama queen. Yes, believe it or not I am not the biggest drama queen, he is and he's damn proud of it. From just 3 minutes of talking to him, you'd realize that he likes to put himself on the pedestal, and he does. But even with all that attitude, he's a lot of fun to hang out with. Listening to him on vent always makes my day. He also never rage quits, and never actually gets angry - which is kind of surprising now that I think about it. He also has nice eyes that he cherishes, I'm not sure if that makes a difference.

OMG_Jongalt26

Nickname is Jon. One continuous question that has been floating around is this, "Who would win in a fight against Jon, KAL-EL and yeahneil?" That is an answer no one has been able to answer yet. Those 3 in my mind are the tough trios - but really, they're all actually probably the nicest people in the clan right from the get go. I'm not going to lie, I was scared to talk to them initially but after maybe.. 2 days? I got comfortable with them. Jon to me is a wonderful fatherly figure so he is definitely the father of the family.

OMG_KAL-EL

His name is pronounced just like the way it's spelled. If Jon is our father, KAL-EL is probably our grandfather, except he's not even that old. So why do I call him the grandfather? Because he has so many people that support him that you can't help but admit that there's something about KAL-EL that makes people like him. The answer becomes quite obvious when you engage in a conversation with him. He always keeps it real, and is genuinely friendly. I still have a hard time matching his friendliness with his tough voice but I'm getting there. 

OMG_Mybones

A fellow gleek, and although there are some disagreements between us about who the best character in glee is (obviously Rachel, but he refuses to admit her greatness), as long as he is a fan of glee, I am a fan of him.

OMG_NinkiCZ

I'm just your average joe who's Asian. I'm quite boring so let's move on to someone more interesting.

OMG_Nomilarac

OMG_Obiwhan

I've actually always wanted to meet Obi (his nickname) after yeahneil was making fun of my voice and mentioned that he also makes fun of Obi's. When I actually got to meet him, he wasn't quite what I expected because contrary to what yeahneil thinks, he just had a normal voice. Obi is one of the few that makes me literally LOL. I sometimes do wonder if he's telling me the truth about his age though. You'd understand if you've known him long enough. He is the joker. No, not the joker from Batman, but an actual guy who makes jokes. However, his jokes are NSFW - Not Safe For Work, so be careful.

OMG_pacov

There really isn't much to say about pacov because for anyone that comes to these forums, you really can't miss his name. I've never gotten to know him on a personal level, but from my encounters with him he's quite a wonderful person. I consider him the father of Demigod, as do most people I'm sure because he plays such an active role in this community. I've always wanted to get to know you myself and I'm glad that the opportunity has arrived. I shall definitely update this introduction after we become familiar with each other. I also did not think you were the type to listen to Ke$ha. From your posts, I always thought you were more the old skool type - so there's definitely lots of things for me to learn.

OMG_Pa1nKi11er

This is irek, yo. 

OMG_RedneckNinja

OMG_DD-shred_demon

If you don't know who shred_demon is then you are definitely missing out. He is actually the real Gentleman. He has a beautiful Scottish accent and loves to drink tea. He cannot live without his tea. He is also extremely skilled with his use of emoticons (the best in DG?) and we all have lots to learn from him. I've never heard him get angry, he's always smiling in my mind and he always puts a smile on my face. Therefore, if you are feeling down, talk to shreddy. He is the clan's sun (yes as in the big thing that shines the world), but you'll have to ignore his strong desire to wear a skirt and become a transformer.

OMG_Soccer-mom

I remember seeing the name Soccer-mom on Lagwars and thinking what kind of a person would want to be known as a soccer mom. Although his name is a bit weird, he actually is nothing like his name on vent. First, he's not a mom. Second, he's not even a parent. Third, I'm not even sure if he likes soccer. He's actually one of the younger guys on vent but surprisingly is one of the most mature guys on there too. I suppose it has to do with the fact that he studies physics (which I think is absolutely amazing because I suck at physics). If you want to delve into a discussion on quantum theory, talk to him.

OMG_SoSick

Another Canadian from Edmonton, which makes him cool. Quite a laid back sorta guy, who's apparently an excellent cook. He kind of reminds me of jaws8you (who seemed to have disappeared somewhere) but without the sighing and he also never gets mad. He is a great guy to play games with because he's a great listener, always calm and even takes responsibility for his mistakes - which is quite a rare sight in Demigod, and even in life. He has almost made drastic improvements over these weeks and I'm sure he'll be excellent in no time. 

OMG_Splitshadow

Don't be fooled by his age. Kids his age should be listening to Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus, yet he chooses to listen to Proud Mary by CCR. He likes to blame me for not being on vent, when in fact I am always on and I do pm him from time to time yet he chooses to ignore my messages, probably from Maccilia's terrible influence. He says he can tell a lot about you from your voice, so you should ask him for a personality diagnosis if you're interested.

OMG_Teseer

Everytime I talk to Teseer on vent, he seems like a completely different person. If you look over his posts you can tell that most of the time he's under the influence of some sort of substance, which could explain why he's a different person each time. While he sounds like a tough dude, he's not aggressive at all and I don't think I've ever heard him get mad. He also has this disgusting passion for TB, it's kind of to the point where it's a bit obsessive in my opinion. If you have any questions about TB, ask this man. Provide him with TB replays and he'll be very pleased.

OMG_Zalera (a.k.a. OMG_Sol)

He's barely on so how am I supposed to know anything about him. All I know is that he pops up in the forums once in a while and he seems to be BFFs with Splitshadow.

OMG_Zelax_

OMG_Zex (a.k.a. Cowbuttzex)

I always thought cow was a weird guy because he's the only person who seems to get along with Peter, but when you talk to him he's actually quite normal. I think it's because he's very accepting of everyone, as you can tell from being our first ever member of the week. If you don't know who to talk to when you come onto vent, the first person I would suggest is cow, because he's very considerate and would do his best to include you in games. He's also very encouraging and I think he plays a vital role in merging the members of the clan together.

Hmm... i think this will be fun to respond to.  1st - kuddos on forming a larger group. Let's talk details...

For most intents and purposes, GM was sieged by a coup d'état.  I'm quite happy to be very clear and blunt here - I didn't have anything to do with that, but I was quite happy to join a clan that wasn't GM or OMD (now OMG).  I had spoken with Ninki via PM about joining GM, but I was politely (read without much of a response, declined).  Ninki, after I joined Boxxy, seemed quite willing to share info about my not being accepted into GM and pointed the finger at McShane.  Anyway, I don't much care about any of that.  Kalel screwed me over awhile back and pulled a coup d'état on clan pacov (he later formed OMD following my ideals without me, so who cares)... one of the boxxy folks pulled a coup d'état on GM... and now you've consolidated several folks under one banner.  Clans in Demigod generally don't amount up to much.  And leading clans is all the worse.  You get needless abuse from people simply because you try to organize things and some ass wants to usurp power.  I think ninki can possibly relate (I can).  I have no idea what ninki could have done do have deserved the coup he was faced with, but apparently a bunch of the GM angst got directed at him. 

I'll go out on a limb one last time - I really don't, and never have, given much of a shite about clans in DG.  When the game was the most fun for me, it was simply playing games with my pals.  Frogboy started playing DG, created the stats overlay, and things got annoying - so we adapted and started playing with our friends under alts or started playing against our pals. 

DG (by virtue of its total population alone) requires that if a clan is formed to play together - then another clan must exist to fight against.  Think about that for a moment - If I form a clan that has me and 4 of my buds together and all we want to do is fight against other people not in my clan - what will happen?  We will be called a premade and bitched at unless there is another clan.  So, the second someone wants to form a clan, they either have to fight amongst themselves or against other clans (or premades).  So, 1 clan requires another to exist... think - 2 clans exist - 4 guys on each clan.  They fight.  Turns out that one guy on clan A isn't as good as the other players.  So, clan A always loses in matches vs clan B.  Guess what?  Clan A doesn't want to always get their ass kicked by clan B.  So, they come up with alternative ways to exist... Let's just say for second (I don't require any of you to agree with this, but humor me) that clan Boxxy is superior even to the new clan OMG with all its people. Do you think that if the outcome of 90% of the clan games were in favor of Boxxy that anyone on clan OMG would want to play?  Or to diffuse my comments, what if 90% of the time OMG beat the shite out of Boxxy?  Do you think folks in boxxy would line up to fight?  Probably not right?  So, what does that tell you?  You might have the best players, but eventually, no one will want to play against you (which takes us right back to the premade vs pug argument). 

Anyway, I'm pretty sure I had things right a long time ago and that I had the best attitude possible when things got going.  1st - play DG with your pals.  Play on the same team as much and as often as possible.  If that doesn't work, play with your pals against each other.  Fug your ego  - your pal might be better at dg than you are. Just play the game and have some fun with your friends.  That only required a few sentences, but its probably the best advice I have for folks playing DG. 

Anyway - if I could go back and restart clan pacov, here's what I would do.  1 - not invite kalel.  He was the most divisive, backstabbing shite I've known in all of my time being a nerd on teh internets.  He currently plays with about 80% of people I personally recruited.  He's a nice enough guy, but... well, I'm happy not to associate with him anymore.  2 - I would tell all other clans to go FUG themselves.  I never really wanted the clan label and actually created my clan to provide some competition for the GL clan quite some time ago.  Who cares if we form competition for another clan.  Big mistake on my part getting involved in that in the first place.  blahblahblah

So - here's my advise for this new clan.  If you want it to last, don't give a rip about who is the best player or competing with other clans.  Play a bunch of games with each other and against each other.  If your individual players decide to quit playing together, then the clan dies.  Keep your clan alive as long as its fun.

Best of luck with your new clan from pacov!

As much as you'd like to think people were stolen from you, you are sadly mistaken. The true reason you sit by yourself in those vent channels is because you are rude, inconsiderate, and sometimes irate on ventrillo. People don't like that.... So I guess what I'm saying is stop being such a big Di@k!!!

I'm glad you're taking part in this thread Pacov. You, in my eyes, are the father of DG, just like how Freud is often thought of as the father of psychology. However, Freud was not correct about many many things and I would like to point a few things out about the parts of your post that relate to me and GM. As you can see, I have not discussed or inferred any reasons as to why GM fell through in my original post because that is not the purpose of this thread.

1. I was not "willing" to share information. Your initial post in that thread said "GM was not welcoming" - which insinuates that it was a collective decision. I'm not exactly sure why you got that impression and it was also the incorrect impression. If I did not want you in GM personally, I would've told you directly because it saves time. Renz is also in the boxxy clan and he would tell you what happened but I assume you haven't actually asked around for the actual details. Like you said, you don't really care which is fine. But I'd at least like correct information to be presented to the public.

2. It is 1 and only 1 person in GM that had an issue with the way I was and I've addressed that in another thread. It was not a bunch of GM members, it was 1. That issue is now resolved and if you are interested, I do have other means of contact with members of the Boxxy clan and we still do have conversations from time to time as friends. I still consider them friends, and I believe they feel the same about me. I think the dynamic of my relationship with them is misinterpreted on your side, it is nothing like the dislike you have against Kalel.

3. Your final statement in the first paragraph also implies that I deserved what I got, which I find a bit surprising. I am impartial to any feuds that go on in this forum and I would expect most people to be unless they knew what actually happened.

4. Realistically speaking, GM was the clan that was better than all other clans. OMD was made, and even they would admit was a weaker clan. We rarely had clan matches against one another. It simply did not work, and what ended up happening was that GM mingled often with OMG anyway. Why have a division that doesn't need to be there? Clan Pacov did work even as one clan when it was flourishing. I don't believe we need multiple clans in DG.

5. I am confident that this clan is a step in the right direction. I appreciate your advice, but GM did survive for 6 months with 8 people while half were inactive so I think I'm doing well myself. With 20 people and even more, the viability of this clan is even stronger and I have a pretty good grasp of how to maintain a clan, which is important as the PR guy.

As part of any clan I think it's important to get to know your members personally. You should get to know the members of your boxxy clan, especially when it's a small group, and hear it from themselves if you're interested. There's no need to infer anything. If you'd like a more thorough discussion, I'd be happy to take it up in the Gentlemen thread but I have respected Boxxy's space based on their request, and I would like the same respect reciprocated. Thank you

These little seeds of distrust you're planting Ninki, I guess it should be expected from a psychology major.  I'm just going to leave it alone though since you've been positioning yourself in the role of sympathetic heroine from the start, which shows why we asked you to handle public relations in the first place. 

You better then anyone know I prefer to skip all the hubbub and settle issues in game, so I would however like an answer to this question from Pacov please:

Quoting pacov,
Do you think that if the outcome of 90% of the clan games were in favor of Boxxy that anyone on clan OMG would want to play?

Ah I forgot to point out the irony of Kalel joining a clan where "we will accept anyone who wants to join. Just add the tag, hop onto vent, say Hi and I'll add you on here."  This seems fishy, who hacked his account and changed his name?  I'll have to discuss this with him. 

Also, to stir the pot even further..due to Pacov indirectly calling me an ass who wants to usurp power and Ninki agreeing to leave GM but still double the prize money for Janook and Magnus etc. (which is the only reason I left in the first place instead of sending him on his way) and also for the hilarity of it; I am leaving Boxxy and returning to my rightful home in the Gentlemen.  I may create a new thread when I get back later today, or more likely just use Janook's old thread.

Before I become an official member:

 

"If you want I can serenade your entrance to the clan with a song of your personal choice, but it must be Top 40."

 

Ninki, you can choose anything by Lady Gaga.  Oh and none of this youtube (or sim) link crap.  You said YOU will serenade the entrance. You didn't say "I will provide a link to your song of choice"

Anyone else want to hear Ninki sing something by Lady Gaga ?

oh man, i just read the rest of the thread (my previous response was after i read the OP)

Anyways, no one can deny that demigod is a dying game.  I applaud Ninki for unifying lagwars members in an attempt to keep the game going, kalel for the same.  I applaud Pacov for being a major figurehead in the game and being a major organizer of the tournament.  This was/is a major boon to our community.  Hopefully another one will follow on it's heals. These things have brought some old school players back.  Im happy to see Epi around again and look forward to seeing his crazyass fun builds (Speed Yeti's anyone?)

In any case this thread is obviously meant to help unify some of the core players, not as a thread to post drama. 

Now, lets get back to the good points in the thread, Ninki singing Lady Gaga is priority number 1!

Do you think that if the outcome of 90% of the clan games were in favor of Boxxy that anyone on clan OMG would want to play?

Oops, I missed your request to have this question answered.

But actually, I have answered this question in my reply to pacov by illustrating what happened with GM and OMD.

PS. Add tags everyone! Let's all become a beautiful, glorious family!!!
