COD4: Official GWJ 360 Clan Experiment
In light of the "view friends of a friend" ability included in the upcoming Xbox 360 Live Fall Update, I've established a silver Xbox Live account that will function as a pseudo clan list.
Here how it works: the clan list gamertag is GWJ COD4 Clan. Send a friend invite to the gamertag, and I'll accept you as a friend. If the new functionality works the way it ought to, the gamertag should provide ready access to a roster of devoted GWJ COD 4 players, even if they aren't on your personal friends list.
This isn't exactly an essential service, but it could come in handy. I know I have a full friends list that I occasionally cull people from to make room for more, and I certainly find myself in COD4 games with GWJers that aren't on my own list.
A couple of guidelines:
I've set up the clan gamertag account so it will be viewable only by friends of the account. I personally wouldn't mind it if the list were public, but I'm not sure everyone else feels the same way. So if you're not a friend of the clan, you won't be able to see who's on the roster.
I'm setting this up for regular COD4 players. If you rarely play COD4 multiplayer and you're unlikely to accept party invites from other GWJers, you may want to think twice about signing up. We only have 100 slots. I don't think they'll fill up, but just in case they do, I'll try to keep an eye on the roster so we can weed out folks who are no longer playing to make room for those who are.
This will be obvious to everyone who plays with GWJers regularly, but the clan roster I'm setting up here isn't intended for organized, hardcore competitive clan activities. And of course, the standard GWJ expectations of sportsmanship and conduct apply for everyone on the list. I'll moderate it if needed.
I figure we've got nothing to lose but a single slot on our friends lists, so we'll see how it goes! Post any feedback here, or PM me if needed.
