ABOUT THE TOUMAN - NEW MEMBERS

The sibko is where new applicants reside. This is a probationary status and shows that a pilot has not yet been voted into the unit. As this is the most important step to membership, Blooded and regular members are encouraged to keep an eye on new players to get to know them and see how they fit in with the team.

In addition to players marked Sibkin, there are other new members/applicants designated as Bondsman. These are players who have applied with us from established teams and as a bit of role-playing fluff, are identified as Bondsman vice Sibkin.

Those from allied teams with a known Trial of Position methodology that hews closely to our own in terms of difficulty, will become full Blooded Members of the Clan upon passing their vote. Those coming from units with weaker Trial systems, or wishing to attempt the ToP anyway, will take the Trial of Position just as a newly voted in Snake would.

SMOKE ADDER BLOOD OFFICERS (SABO)

A tangenital unit to ours, is SABO. Here, alternate accounts containing "Blood Officers" are held. These are the accounts players fight against to earn their way past the Trial of Position (ToP), after being voted in by the Blooded Assembly.

Only those that have passed a ToP, are members of the Blooded Assembly, and most importantly, they are the only members of the unit allowed to vote on any binding issue for the Clan -- including the addition of new applicants.

We use these SABO tagged accounts to offer anonymity for the ToP experience, so that applicants do not know who they are facing in their ToP's.

THE 502nd STRIKE DRAGOONS CLUSTER

The 502nd "Strike" Dragoons are Smoke Adders pilots that are casual or can not commit a significant amount of time to competitive play or focused playstyles.

Dragoons include any Smoke Adder who has been voted in as a Snake, or any rank above that, that are not in one of the competitive/FW focused clusters. This is the only Cluster a non-Blooded member can be a part of.

THE 505th SILENT DEATH CLUSTER

505th "Silent Death" Cluster are Smoke Adders competitively focused members at the mid-range level, focused primarily on the Faction Warfare aspect of MWO (as of December 2017). Leadership of this Cluster can also be involved in the 173/373rd Clusters as competitive player, but this if for players who prefer to play FP as the primary competitive game mode, vice the tournaments and leagues of the traditional competitive scene in the community.

505th pilots are volunteers who wish to assist the Touman in growing it's FW profile and dominating the Inner Sphere via MWO's FW mode. Volunteers are selected based on their activity level, willingness to fight as a team in the mode and dedication to success in Faction Warfare.

Minimal characteristics for consideration to be brought into the 505th:

  • Must be Blooded
  • moderate attendance and activity level commensurate with the 505th driven FW schedule
  • able to demonstrate the teamwork, situational awareness and independent aggressiveness necessary to win at the Division D+ level

505th pilots are volunteers with demonstrated skill, experience and teamwork orientation. Pilots who are working their way onto either the 173rd or 373rd competitive teams and are currently alternates to one of those clusters can also be listed here within this unit.
