Hello,

Big thank you to everyone who showed up on time and participated in our 7th StarFleet Tournament. As a whole the Tournament was very organized and well executed.

Let's not forget to congratulate our 2 Finalists Jacobis and ShazamPoof! These two players battled their way through the tournament 2-0ing each of their opponents. However when it came down to the Finals, ShazamPoof could not stand up to Jacobis's well executed and seemingly perfect builds. Jacobis winning against ShazamPoof 3-0.

Our First Place Winner Jacobis will receive 1 Gold Combat Pin on our website.

Our Second Place Winner ShazamPoof will receive 1 Silver Combat Pin on our website.

All players who showed up will receive 15 Reputation points on our website.

Thank you again to those who participated, helped manage the tournament (Oblivion), and tuned in to the live stream,
President CrunChy

ATTENTION,

All Confederation members, I am calling upon you today to please stretch out and help support the Clan. We need your help to become bigger, and better!

How can you help?
  • By Recruiting/Referring people to join the Clan.

How do you do that?
  • Did you have a good game with someone? Message them after and ask them if they are interested in a Clan. If they are send them over to our website (the-confederation.net) tell them to click "Apply Here" and to be sure to put you as their referral. 
  • Copy/Paste our website at the start of your games. (the-confederation.net)
  • Search through the official Starcraft 2 Forums under "Clans and Groups". Look for people who want to join a Clan and message them in game.
  • Copy/Paste our recruitment message in Public Channels. "Are you looking to join a fun, well organized, and exciting Clan? Well The Confederation wants you! Visit http://the-confederation.net/ and Click "Apply Here" if interested."
What's in it for you?
  • For every single person that you refer who successfully gets recruited into the Clan, you will receive 15 Reputation points which help you rank up.
  • You get more people to play with!
  • A bigger community.
  • More forum activity.
  • Etc
The Confederation has a reputation to uphold as one of the largest, stout, yet respectful gaming communities in Battle.net history. But we need a little help from all of you. You can not simply sit in the channel and expect our member count to grow. We all must do our part, chip in, and put a little elbow grease into recruiting more players to help our Clan stay healthy. If you can't help recruit, you can't be in ConFed.

Remember this is OUR Clan. Greatness can only be achieved by the teamwork of talented individuals. Every single member is a talented individual.

Once again, recruit recruit recruit!

Thank you for your time,
President CrunChy

Hello!

Big thanks to everyone who showed up on time for the tournament. Our 5th StarFleet Tournament was a big success, loads of fun, full of good fights, and epic moments. 

ShazamPoof and Daedalus were our two finalist of the night. ShazamPoof reached the finals by going 2-0 against TheBigTG, and 2-1 against Moon. Whereas Daedalus 2-0'd TheODog and Machiavelli.

With each player being Zerg, the finals which were a Best of 5 came down to build orders and mechanics. Zerg vs Zerg is all about who can squeeze in more drones and still survive the intense harassment with remarkable micromanagement. ShazamPoof displayed these attributes diligently, completely all killing Daedalus 3-0. While Daedalus put up a fight, ShazamProof took the gold. 

  • ShazamProof will receive 1 Gold Combat Pin on our website.
  • Daedalus will receive 1 Silver Combat Pin on our website.
  • All players who signed up and were on time will receive 15 Reputation points on our website. 

Check out the live stream of the finals below!
(Skip to 4:30 for a quicker start)

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.

Since we jump-started the Clan back to life on Tuesday, March 12th, 2013 we have seen consistent growth, and a maintained member cap of 100. We've had Weekly/Bi Weekly Tournaments, plenty of activity, and a lot of new faces. The Confederation is once again a premier battle.net Clan.

With that said, Summer is here, July is around the corner, School is out, College students are on break, and all is well. What does this mean for the Clan? Simple! Battle.net will have increased activity, which results in more recruits, and heightened Clan activity.

However, we can only achieve this activity by working together as a Clan.

How can you help?

Always be in the Clan channel! Why? Because it looks better for new recruits. No one wants to join a Clan that doesn't have all it's members in the main channel. Advertise our Clan in your games. It is as simple as copying and pasting the website at the start of each match.

Have someone you liked playing with? Direct them to our website and tell them if they are interested in joining the Clan to click "Apply Here”. (Remember you get reputation points for every recruit you refer.)
Use TeamSpeak and Post on the Forums.

If you're reading this and you might be thinking about joining The Confederation, let me point out some things you're simply not going to find anywhere else but here. If you want to join click "Apply Here” to the right of this page.

  • Weekly/Bi-Weekly Tournaments
  • Extensive Inter Clan Ranking Structure
  • Organization unparalleled by any other Clan
  • Dedicated TeamSpeak 3 Server
  • Active Forums
  • Professionalism

Don't forget if you plan to buy a Clan T-Shirt we need you to cast a vote telling me what size you are. This way we can order the correct amount of shirts in the right sizes. The poll is on the right side of this page.

What lies in the future for our Clan? This is a pretty easy question. More members, more Tournaments, bigger prizes, and more fun. The Confederation will always have the most organized, fun, friendly, and welcoming community on Battle.net. This is the way it's been for 17 years. No other Clan can stand up to our community. No matter what you like to do, we have a place for you.

I personally would like to take the time to thank each and every one of you for taking the time to read this. Remember, this is YOUR Clan. Each one of you make up this Clan, and we would not be where we are today if it were not for the dedicated and loyal members this Clan consists of. We will continue to make our mark on Battle.net and prove to the world that The Confederation is a premier Battle.net Clan.

Thank you,
President CrunChy

Hello,

As you all know we had our 4th StarFleet Tournament on 06/01/13. This Tournament was targeted towards lower skilled players, so participants were in leagues Bronze through Gold.

The Tournament was incredibly fun and exciting, not only for the players but for the viewers as well! For our first time we had a live stream up from Start to Finish!

When it came time to play the finals, there were only 2 players who remained.. Slakiv the Protoss and Kampfgiest the Terran! These two competed in a Best of 5 series for first place, Slakiv showed Kampfgiest that he knew his stuff better by all killing him in the tournament. The final score was 3-0 (Slakiv winning).

Slakiv will receive 1 Gold Combat Pin, while Kampfgiest will receive 1 Silver Combat Pin. Everyone who participated will receive 15 Reputation points on our website!

Thank you all for coming out to play, and tuning in VIA Live Stream.

If you want to help support the Clan financially, please donate. All funds go directly towards Clan support. The donate button is on the right hand side of this page.

Once again thank you,
President CrunChy
