    Quote from MedvekomaΒ»

    It's a sad thing. I remember the activity around three years ago when I was around for it. Though at the same time, I guess it's also a matter for the clans to keep up the activity.

    I do wonder, though, what demographic change leads to such a decrease in activity when, apparently, the amount of players overall is rising.


    Many attribute it to being the increasing demographic towards kids but I've always disagreed with that. Back in the day most clan players were 13-17 years old, maybe not kids but it was a teenager's section in many ways. I'd say that this sort of age range seriously playing Minecraft is decreasing as Minecraft becomes more of a 'kid's game'. The major change I believe is that back in 2011 we didn't have these massive hub servers - if you wanted to meet people or play in a group a clan was a really solid way to go! People knew about them because these forums were the centre of the Minecraft community, everything would be done here and clans were under 'general' meaning that they were one of the first things you'd see when browsing the forums. Massive attention, massive interest at a time where clans were thriving! But think of how difficult it is to find this section now, and when one arrives it's a section full of dead posts or tiny startups looking for a factions group or YouTuber group - the lack of clans, in general, has led to a massive spiral of decline.

    As forum activity decreases we'd like to remind everyone that our Discord is always lively and easy to join - link on the first page.


    The other thing is that the activity levels on the clans forum as a whole has reached a new low. I've been calling the section 'dying' for a number of years now, but ladies and gentleman I believe this section is now dead. While several clans are still looking great on their servers and discords (such as our good allies and friends over at TRE) this section is dead. It's unfortunate, but not unexpected.

    We have a Discord server in which these 90+ active members are found. We also do recruit a majority of our members in-game.


    Not all of our players play on the same servers either, the reason being that we are stationed across 7 servers as of now and we are working to expand by having these players stick to ONE server so that we can maximize the amount of time spent on one specific server. With that being said, we will be able to expand easier without as much detainment. I do hope that this has answered your question(s).


    Thank you


    - Vladimir Tepes


    This has answered my question.
    Good luck in your future clan endeavors!

    Welcome to the forums, Vanguardians.


    Reading through your thread I just wished to clarify something that I found strange.


    It says in your opening post that you "are at 90+ members as of now and our governmental systems are near full development". This sounded extremely promising, immediately I could tell your organization must be well known and that it was great you were deciding to join the clan community here! What I found strange was that upon searching the clan's name on Google I was met with only a few results - two Minecraft Forum pages (including this one), a post on Mineplex from October with no replies, a thread on Arkham Network that was locked due to inactivity after no replies and a Hypixel recruitment page made by a guy currently in a different guild entirely, the same one that posted the Mineplex posts as well (ProTeenGamer). From the types of server forums I found you to be on I took the assumption that you must be based on large network servers such as the ones I just mentioned.


    Based on this I decided to look up your group on these servers. I was surprised by what I found, however, for the Hypixel guild with the same name and also created by Vladimir Tepes only contains 9 members (see below). This is surprising considering your guild claims over 90. So this leaves 81+ people to be found on the other servers. I'm not familiar with the Mineplex system of 'communities' but from what I could see there isn't a search function so I couldn't find your clan, but the majority of communities I found on Mineplex had between 10-18 players in them. While not impossible, and in no way doubting your claim, it seems strange that on a server where most groups are between 10-18 players a group with 90+ members has no forum presence whatsoever other than a dead recruitment post. Arkham Network also appears to lack this search functionality. This also contradicts your statement that you are "confident enough at this point to spread the word of our organization and the empire it serves" as this post right here is the only recruitment post I could find not dated from October or November.



    In the previous thread, you claim that the clan is 'nearly full' yet I'm not seeing this. Perhaps I've missed something or you do 90% of your recruiting in-game and go straight to Discord. This would appear strange and contradictory of your own clan rules however - you appear to be very strict in wanting members to "spend 15+ minutes putting your all into writing your application; paying attention to detail and avoiding spelling/grammar mistakes" so direct recruitment bypassing this process seems out of character for 90% of the entire clan's recruitment.


    So my question is: where are these members? If they're not on large hub servers then they must be on factions or anarchy servers and mostly recruited in-game. You mention how you play across multiple servers with a 'capital' server, but what is this server? I'd be interested to see what such a rapidly-grown and strong force has accomplished in the two and a half months since creation!


    Looking forward to seeing how this group grows even further, just wanted some clarification!

    The festive season has come and gone and we've been doing some great things on RenMX! We can't wait to see what else we'll create this year on the server!

    Pri's very kindly taken some new renders for use on the front page! I thought this would be a great opportunity to show what we've been working on for the past few weeks.


    First, the castle at the centre of the city!



    The viking stronghold, Brothersgarde, on the isles outside of town!



    Josh's project, coming along nicely:



    And to conclude, a nice overview of the central region of the town.

    hey congrats on 1000, even the forums seem to be glitched for me and is keeping it at 996, while also 1000 at the same time


    Thanks brother, yeah it's doing the same thing for me too, displaying 996 from the clan page but 1000 once you click onto the page. Glad to finally get it though!

    Exciting new clan developments, and not just for our clan! It's great to see us work with people outside of the clan again, been a while!

    As discord activity increases, Minecraft Forums activity declines. This is a good sign however, as now we can use the forums for important announcements and for discussion with those other clans rather than applications. I'm loving the builds on our viking island, and there's been interest in a FTB server. Been a very active few weeks!
