First of all welcome to the Over 30 Clan.
The Over 30 Clan is an online gaming community for like minded adults who like to "PTFO" (play the F#$ing objective). If you're sick of dealing with loud mouth brats in your lobbies or terrible teammates who refuse to play the objective then you've come to the right place my friend! We have hundreds of members who span the globe playing on all sorts of mediums (Xbox, Playstation, and PC). We specialize in Call of Duty, Battlefield, and Destiny however we have numerous folks who play many other genres. This community is a 501c non profit and operates based on my personal out of pocket expense as well as donations from the community.
1) We have very few rules here but one we typically stick by is the sole premise of the clan name. You need to be 30 years or older to be a member. Albeit exceptions have been known to happen so don't give up hopes just yet. The community as a whole has the opportunity to vote in or out every applicant. If you display maturity, have a referral, and/or show a willingness to contribute exception can happen.
2) You need to PTFO. I feel its safe to say EVERYONE is here for this very reason. Now don't get the wrong idea we're not MLG try hards. We like to work as a team and we like to win. However winning isn't everything. We've been known for various bouts of asshattery and clusterfuckery (like winning COD Dom matches running only riot shields and RPGs).
3) Respect your fellow 30. This goes without saying the golden rule applies. Treat people how you expect to be treated. At anytime if you have an issue or concern feel free to contact me directly. I will do everything in my power to resolve the issue fairly and discretely.
4) Lastly and most importantly - HAVE FUN!
