My cuz who lied (thought) he was in OD and lied (maybe thought) Zeho was the clan leader and his best friend and "recruited" me. I was told im not really in the clan, and a crappy member named Dog(OD) tests me.

Followed spam bots in clan recruitment.

We were messing around with small clans that required tryouts of some sort. We'd screw up our names(ie: "(ST)IAMTHELEADER") ... backstab our clan mates.. "remove" members from the clan... stuff like that. Most of them were day 1 'High ranks still available if you join!!!!' type clans so we decided to look for a bigger, sustainable source of entertainment. Then comes OD. Massive clan where you can screw with a limitless supply of newbs that spam bots bring in + quite a few 'interesting' members already in the clan + other like minded people to enjoy the funnies with.

Alright to be perfectly honest with you guys I never intended to join OverDosed at all I flooded it.My clan was darkstar I was a general and they sent me into OverDosed to spy on you guys.ChoBo caught me disabled me...I got back in and slipknot changed my name so ChoBo wouldnt notice again.Bad times were happening in DarkStar the leaders were crappy and were immature lots of people flooded us and hacked our site.One day the clan collapses total destruction I got a site up with a few other leaders from DarkStar Scraped up our members and started but we were hacked again and we stayed down......I was still in OverDosed logging in watching how it worked and it amazed me of the teamwork of the generals .I reached the rank finally of Sergeant Major and decided to give Clan OverDosed a whirl and here I am now a 3* general and I had no intention of joining OverDosed I was called to by our main leader.Funny isn't one day your trying to spy on a clan the next your general of that clan and loving OD.I met alot of people in OverDosed made alot of good friends better than the ones in DarkStar.Well thats my true story....

Let see it all begins... (please don't hurt me if its long) about two years ago. I was a bit sloppy at StarCraft but I just played a lot of Map Setting games. I hung out with a few people that RPed a lot (I still remember their accounts too) and we stayed liked that for a while. Sooner after one of my friends decided that we become a clan or RPers on StarCraft. At the time I thought it was "cool" so I was in. We named the clan RP_ , and raked in hundreds of players. Well after a while the leaders of it became sloppy and careless... so one day everyone just left. This left me without a play to go (game with others). So I searched the Recruiting channel. As always it was overruned by spam bots, so I choose a bot and I applied for the clan. Well this went off for the next several months. Each clan I had applied for either had a leader problem, careless members, not active enough, war mongering, extremly bad website, absolutly bad gamers, terrible rules, hackers, bad ranking system, and a whole lot more I could name. So one day I found a clan that seemed promising, a clan that was well balanced and treated their members right; so I applied for that. I was brought in the clan DarkAngel (thought it was OverDosed huh :D ). This clan was everything I looked for until... one day all of the sudden the clan went into a shut down and was never back up. So I was once again left without a clan. I started to become bored with StarCraft so I switched over to Diablo 2:LoD. I applied for a clan named Celtic Steel (most famous past puriest clan). Everything was good, nice members ; small but trust worthy, and none of them never hacked. Well one day I way getting ready to move and so I posted a notice in the forums. Several months later I fine that it was diassembled and sooner became clan SteelWind. I thought it would be the same but it wasn't... (sigh)... so once again I was left without a clan. One day I was serfing the channel and I saw a bot in the Recruiting channel. And I went to the channel and it was clan OverDosed, SuperSkills(OD) recruited me and that about it.

(Please don't hurt me if it was 'too' long.)

Ok, my story: I bought starcraft becuaes i went to my cousin's house in houston. (TX) I watched him and was fasicnated ( since i had never boughten a computer game before) Remember, sc is pretty old, i was little ^^. SOooo, i go home, and by it. I played it for 6 months, got bored. As it was my only game.... i un-gotbored, when i found MULTIPLAYER! thats right! we got 56k! instead of nothing at all! so i played multiplayer for 1 year, then decided i wanted to get real good. I found the gamesites 200, and saw overdosed. ( guess that does help huh?) I went to the channel, and said: can somebody recruite me? for 10 minutes, and everybody ignored me. THen chobo(OD) came as outlaw, and tested me out, which he promptly owned me. Then i trained real hard... all summer.. by the end of the summer, i could beat everybody in our clan. Including caff. Then... gay dx2... i lost all my skill... now... outwar, gunbound , ragnarok, violin, psat, is all i do. I get on starcraft often though ^^.

For some reason, i ALWAYS see dgreenbud in the channel, hes like, the most active person on bnet, no joke.

Guest Vortex

I started off on bnet on Starcraft:Broodwar under the name vortex_warrior in 1998. I played broodwar only when my friends were on and at that time I only played money maps. My friends eventually got into diablo2 when it came out and I got hooked on that game for 2+ years under the name vortex_warrior. My friends eventually quit that game and got into FPS's. I played hardcore for a bit but during my d2 hardcore period my mom stole my diablo2 cd and wouldn't give it back to me for a few weeks/months? can't remember. Anyway I thirsted for bnet so I decided to play Starcraft:Broodwar again in March 2003. I got back on my vortex_warrior name and played 400+ games on melee BGH games/maps. Those were exciting times because I was learning the precious power of macro, and I had met many very good BGH players such as Dark~Messiah. Through such players I heard of a channel full of BGH "gosus" called Motel. I decided to visit there and played over 2000+ games on tvb BGH with the motelers. I became extremely good friends with them, however I realized that I was getting better then any of them and went searching for more competition. I found clan x17 from someone in motel who had been smurfing there and owned the living ###### out of me. His name was 311[fe], and he was to be a member of my first ever bnet team. I played many games in clan x17 but I seemed to lose most of them because my strat for the most part was dt - pvt and pvp, and pvz I used to try and rush them and if that failed I would quit. I had finally decided I was good enough to join [fe] = (Flesh Eaterz, which is being resurrected in the summer). I tried out and got lucky through a dt rush and beat him. My next tryout was versus his friend 187hp. It was pvp and decided to rush him. I won that as well through shear luck. I then became TwIsTeD[fe]. I trained hard on that name but what I soon realized was the [fe] was dead before I had joined. So I quit that but still posted on their forums. I repeatedly tried to join JiN and eventually JinXiN felt bad for me and let me in. I became JiNVortex. During my days in JiN I became extremely hardworking and started learning strategies and hotkeys. I also found out about www.wgtour.com during this time, a site which I would only much later register and start playing on. I quit JiN because some of my friends like JiNStealth, JiNLoki were quitting and forming a new team: FliP). I decided to follow them and became FliP)TwIsTeD. It was a very satisfying time in my broodwar career. The problem with FliP) however was it was dying because of internal affairs. I was desperately looking for a better team so I went back to clan x17. At the time I had many offers to join teams, however when I asked around the two best teams on east were NeO) and [x.1]. I first tried NeO) but was rejected because I didn't play wgtour. I then registered for that, under the name vortex_warrior. I then decided to tryout for [x.1]. I had seen Cygnus[x.1] in x17 many times and had secretly tried out at least 4 times for the team under different names. I was rejected all 4 times. The 5th time I tried out I decided to try and drop dt's in his base. It killed him. We then played 3 more games where I did similiar strategies (Cygnus wasn't very good at defending against dt's) and won all of them. I then joined [x.1] and it was a very good, active, mannered clan. I learned SOO much from joining [x.1] that I can't thank them enough. One day I was in Clan Recruitment and saw a spambot spamming OverDosed so I decided to go into your channel and check it out. At the time I was into showing off my "l33t" skillz against newbs. I played against like 6 of you and beat you all and was recruited and joined the same day. I joined as Vortex(OD). I was in clan for a long while before the people in [x.1] started to become suspicious. Finally the webmaster Fox[x.1] found out about me somehow and told me to leave (OD) or leave [x.1]. I left (OD) and the rest is history.

I found out from Vivid-Edge(OD) because he was hella bragging about his high rank and stuff in Overdosed back in 7th grade during technology class. He used to log in every day and recruited his friend T-mac(OD). I thought the site was pretty cool and eventually he convinced me that Starcraft was a fun game (I wasn't a big fan of RTS games back then) and I bought the game. It was really fun and I was really good for a newbie so he recruited me into Overdosed. In fact, you can say Clan Overdosed got me hooked onto online gaming because I got cable just to own Vivid (stupid netzero would close every time i open a game).

And how :D Noting like spelling out "LOL" with pylons in a clan match then leaving :D

Then I found a pub game called "Clan Recruiting" or something hosted by ex.Soldier and he made me beat a couple of noobs before he let me in so I decided maybe I'd stay around a bit longer :D

BTW I stand by my earlier statements (way earlier i.e. when I was a general) that spam bots and top 200 sites suck and are evil and only hurt clans in the end :D Gogo massive BM/noob recruit flood!!!~ For Great Justice~!!!

Thank you, I'm done! :D
