Hello,

The State of the Clan Address is meant to be an update as to the current "State" of the Clan for all Confederation members and those interested.

Over the course of the past year The Confederation has built itself back up to a very strong and stable position. We have regular Events, active members, organized leadership, and participate in Clan Wars on a regular basis.

We have run into an issue however which we have been trying to avoid for a long time; the 100 member Clan limit on Battle.net.

The Confederation aims to be the largest, stout, yet respectful Clan on Battle.net. We will not let Blizzard hold us back any longer.

As of today, I am pleased to announce The Confederation is expanding it's member capacity by 100 slots. We will be using a combination of 2 Clan Channels while still using "ConFed" Community as our main channel.


What is the new Clan Channel?

The new channel will be called "The Confederation 2" and the tag will be [xCFx]. The only purpose to having this new channel is to give us another 100 slots so our members will have our tag. Our main channel still remains "ConFed Community".


Is anything new coming to the Clan besides more member space?

Yes! We are also bringing back our Second Fleet which will add another Admiral position, 3 Captain posititions, and an additional 3 new Ships; Avatar, Meridian, Divinity.

All hail our newest Admiral of Fleet 2 ZZZ, *Salutes*. 

ZZZ will be the driving force behind Fleet 2 ensuring that all the new members are taken care of and handled properly. 


How will we invite people to xCFx?

We have moved our entire CRA Branch over to xCFx as well as Admiral Fleet 2 ZZZ. Right now we will only be stationing new members on CFS-Avatar. Once this Ship is at 25 members (combined average of other Ships) we will open up the next Ship, so on and so fourth. 

Remember, it does not matter what Clan Channel you belong to. You can be a member of Fleet 1 and be a part of xCFx. The only purpose to xCFx is to gain an additional 100 member slots so new members may have our tag.

Now I understand that at first it may seem like a juggling act between different officers, tags, inactives, and who goes in what channel, etc. 

This is something that we're going to have to manage carefully while we are starting out. Eventually we will find a sweet spot. We will have an Admiral Fleet 2, 3 Captains, and CRA in [xCFx]. Visa versa for [ConFed].


Are there any new laws associated with this expansion?

Yes. Effective immediately The Confederation will only accept players who are age 13 or older. Any members currently in The Confederation who are under this age will be grandfathered in and be allowed to remain in the Clan.


What else do I need to know?

The only reason we are able to expand the Clan to be something much larger is because of all the members we have today. From my experience in The Confederation I have never before seen the core group of dedicated and caring members that we have right now. If you happen to be reading this and you are not a member of The Confederation, you're really missing out!


Thank you,

President CrunChy

Hello,

ShipWars V which is one of ConFed's largest and most well organized Events was launched on Wednesday, March 12th, 2014. ShipWars V was an epic battle of Ship versus Ship within our Confederation Fleet. It entailed a series of 1v1 and 2v2 games. The Event carried over 7 days.

ShipWars V was placed on a point system. 1v1 victories against another member from a different Ship would earn your Ship two points. 2v2 matches against another Ship would earn you one point. (IE: 2 members from Excalibur vs 2 members from Lexington)

After 7 long grueling days there could be only one winning Ship. As of Wednesday, March 19th, 2014 at 8pm EST, the CFS-Saratoga had a total of 20 points which allowed them to pull ahead of the previous leader CFS-Lexington and secure the win. 
The CFS-Saratoga has demonstrated that it is the strongest, most organized, and well mannered among all 3 Ships currently listed in Fleet One.

The final score between all 3 Ships is as follows: 

  • Saratoga: 20
  • Excalibur: 10
  • Lexington: 18

Under the command of Vice Admiral ZZZ the following members have earned their recognition as they have demonstrated that they are the strongest, most organized, and well mannered among all the Ships currently listed in Fleet One.

Commander Xecutor
Ensign SibLiant
Ensign Shinobi
Master Sergeant PROJR
Master Sergeant MrEnder
Master Sergeant GoldenKings
Sergeant IgniTion
Sergeant IngSoc
Sergeant Flux
Sergeant Santa
Sergeant Sovereign
Sergeant doh
Corporal DaFoo
Corporal VTarlock
Corporal ObeY
Private First Class vibrid
Private First Class whitewolf
Private Evilbunny
Private Silverwynd
Private JAB
Private phraud
Private JackedUp
Private Melty
Private AgentA

Let's not forget about the JCOS/Captain Team which helped make this Event run smoothly. If it were not for their activity and willingness to help manage such a large scale Event, none of this would have been possible.

Vice President Oblivion
Confederation Foreign Advisor TheBigTG
Admiral ShazamPoof
Sky Marshal Daedalus
Commandant JDman
SSA Director Zmic
Vice Admiral ZZZ
Captain Faded
Captain DarkRain

Thank you to everyone who participated in ShipWars V. It was an incredibly fun and exciting Event. This will not be the last ShipWars, there will be many more in the future as well as other exciting Events.

Hail The Confederation!

Thank you,
President CrunChy

Hello,

Integrity - Adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty.
Reliability - The ability to be relied on or depended on, as for accuracy, honesty, or achievement.
Dedication - Complete and wholehearted devotion, esp to a career, ideal.

These are three qualities that are most important to me when judging another person. Very few people have the ability to demonstrate these qualities time after time and time again.

Oblivion is one person that I know for sure contains these three qualities and maintains them. I have known Oblivion for well over 5 years. 

When I began to rebuild the Clan at the start of Heart of The Swarm I seeked out Oblivion through any means nessecary. I checked Facebook, Google, tried old emails, etc. Eventually I got in contact with him and had asked him to come back and be a part of The Confederation again.

Since then, Oblivion has done his job well and has proved himself that he is here for the long run no questions asked. 

Please hail our new Vice President of The Confederation, Oblivion! 

I look forward to work with Oblivion in the mindset of furthering this Clan to greatness.

Please give him your best Salute in our Forum.

Thank you,
President CrunChy

Hello,

Over the course of the last year our Keeper Branch has struggled quite a bit. However, we've finally reached that foothold we've been waiting for. You'll notice that we have established a solid Keeper Branch and are now participating in Clan Wars. Finally, the Keeper Branch is moving in the correct direction.

While this is good and all, the way Keepers are chosen, and the way applications are handled just had to be changed. Keepers are meant for the most worthy, dedicated, skilled, and loyal members of The Confederation. Now one of the largest Clans on Battle.net we've reformed our system for handing Keepers and have made it better than ever before!

I am pleased to introduce to you the launch of our newest system for applying and becoming a Confederation Keeper! This is simply called, Keeper Academy. For those of you who might be new here, Keepers are our most skilled and talented players! They represent us in the heat of battle against other Clans. Not only are they good players, but they are of the most well mannered too.


You can find the Keeper Academy by clicking "Academy" at the top of our website. From there you simply click "Keeper Academy". This will bring you to a page that entails some basic information about the Keepers including a 3 step learning process in which you will end up on the Keeper Academy Application page once completed. You''ll also notice that the Roster for the Keeper Academy is located directly on the front page of the Keeper Academy. 

Not only does the Keeper Academy replace the way people apply to become a Keeper, but it also brings back that sense of meaning and accomplishment to those who reach the first Keeper Rank: Elite Enforcer.

I really hope that you all enjoy this new system as not only myself, but members from our High Command and Keeper Roster have put in a good deal of time in ensuring that this system will work.

If you have questions, comments, or concerns we have answers! Visit our Keeper Academy Q & A section on our Forums and post! 

Thank you,
President CrunChy

Hello,

Ever since the release of Heart of The Swam and the reboot of the Clan, we've struggled to get a core set of loyal skilled players and our Keeper Team up and running in order to host Clan vs Clan Battles. But as time has progressed, this Clan has molded into something much greater than what it was way back then. We've established ourselves as one of the largest and most active Clans on Battle.net with some of the deepest interclan structure ever seen!

On Sunday, January 26th, 2014, The Confederation held it's first Clan vs Clan Battle against Clan WaR.  This was an "All Kill Format", the first team to 4 points would be the victor. 

The Confederation sent out 2 Diamond Players, Keeper Vindicator Motion and Private Wugi. Along side them fought 1 Gold and 1 Platinum Player, SSA Director Zmic, and Private VTarlock.

All of our players gave it their all. We saw epic muta control, some pretty interesting cannon usage, and great terran strategy. Each player from ConFed fought to their best, but they did it not for personal gain, but for the Clan and everyone back at home watching on our live cast!

You could feel the tension during the final match which also was an "Ace Match", whoever won this, that team would be considered the victor. Motion our Zerg player had to beat Clan WaR's Terran player, CheNte. Motion came to victory by executing nearly seemless muta harrassment almost never allowing CheNte to leave his base. Then at about 3/4ths through the match Motion caught CheNtes army completely off guard, with a combination of Zerglings, Banelings, and Mutas, CheNtes army stood no match.

Please give all our players your Salute when you see them online.

This event would have not been possible without direction from Oblivion and Jacobis, these two are responsible for organization of the event. 

Additionally, our Caster Liaison did a superb job of casting our event. We hope to see a lot more of his Casts! The Stream and Clan in general was out of control with excitment!

This is a big deal for us because it's our first organized Clan vs Clan since our reboot in Heart of The Swarm and we won!

If you've ever considered joining The Confederation, now is the time. We are loaded with events and there are many more to come. 2014 is going to be a good year. Stop by our group channel: ConFed Community

Thank you,
President CrunChy

Hello, 

Some of you may know that on Thursday, January 2nd, 2014 there was a meeting held which consisted of members who were Ranked Commander or higher within the UMC, all JCOS members, and High Command. This meeting was designed to get an idea of what the members wanted to happen in the Clan and to learn what direction this Clan is heading in.

A follow up meeting which consisted of only High Command members took place on Monday, January 13th, 2014. This meeting was designed to take all the ideas which were discussed in the previous meeting and talk them out to work on solutions in attempt to try and make everyone happy and form a solid plan which will positively impact the Clan for 2014.

Below you will find a list of goals that High Command in combination with Branch Commanders will be working on to complete throughout the upcoming months. Some of these goals you will notice are already completed, while some may not be even started, some may not even be listed for confidentiality reasons.

Keepers
1) Obtain and retain 5 high Diamond/Masters players.

2) Begin to have frequent Clan vs Clan battles.

3) eSports section on the Forums.

4) Keeper Academy.

CRA
1) Working with our Commandant to help improve the CRA.

2) Gain more peoples interest in CRA.

SSA
1) Create an anonymous suggestion/complaint form.

2) Create better means to help keep unwanted visitors out of our Forums/Community Channel.

UMC
1) Gain an idea of future Admirals and Fleet Admirals.

2) Getting members more interested in pursuing a higher Rank to gain a more responsible role within the Clan.

3) Bettering our inactive requirements.

4) Ship wars.

Miscellaneous

2) More In-Clan Tournamnets.

3) Holding Open Clan Tournaments within our Community Channel to help improve our reputation.

5) Create a Streaming page.

6) Requiring the other Branch Commanders to send a letter to High Command each month about what they are doing for their Branch and what progress they have made. This will ensure that our Branches will stay healthy and never dormant.

7) Reforming reputation points with something better.

8) Various website bug fixes/improvements. 

All of these noted topics have each been discussed and solution created for. Each topic has a "Task Holder” and "Complete By Date”. So as time goes on you will see these improvements and ideas come in to effect. 

The Confederation aims to be one of the most Stout, yet Respectful, Organized, and Fun Clans Battle.net has to offer. It's our rich deep inter-clan structure that sets us apart from any other Clan on Battle.net

Thank you,
President CrunChy
