Who We Are:
We are more than a clan, we're a community, a brotherhood, and more importantly a family. The Over 30 Clan was founded in 2010 by The1UrLookin4. In early 2014 the reigns were handed over to BlackDeath who now owns and operates the community as a 501c non profit. To put it simply the Over 30 Clan is an online community for adults 30+ years old to share interests and play video games together. As we start 2018 we have over 1400 registered members. Our ranks include all walks of life including single folks, moms, dads, veterans, you name it. All of whom are looking for a place to blow off some steam. We are a diverse community with members spanning the globe who game on various consoles / platforms (Xbox, Playstation, and even PC players). We have some REALLY talented gamers but that is NOT a requirement to join! Whether you want to have a few drinks and play casual or you're determined to melt faces we have something for everyone.

What We Do:
PTFO (Play The F@#%ing Objective). This is our clan motto. Have you ever rage quit over some clueless random(s) on your team? Do you typically mute your mic and/or turn off in game chat because the lobby sounds like the halls of a middle school? Well then the Over 30 Clan is for you! We focus on objective play, communication, team work, and most importantly having fun! We've made up silly challenges like riot shield and rocket launchers or tomahawk only classes, all while playing the objective and winning....often! We play, some of us drink / smoke, but we have fun!

What We Play:
The most popular game series we've been known to play: Call of Duty, Destiny, and Battlefield. This isn't to say that's all we play - just about everyone will take a break and try something new and different from time to time. In the past we've had events for GTA V, Forza, and even online Poker nights. Chances are if you post about a game you want to play on our forum you'll get some folks to join you.

Accolades / Accomplishments:
We were at one time ranked the #1 Heavyweight clan for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Domination game mode! We've also scrimmaged against some famous teams including players like oTrademark, Wickedscrapnel, and PWNSTARS. We're also a featured community on the Overdog app which you can find on the Xbox One store.

How do I join?

1) Be 30+ years old (In RARE instances we have made exceptions - this is why every applicant must be voted in by the community. If you don't make the cut please don't take it personal).
2) Register for an account
2) APPLY (must complete step 2, be logged in, click 'Apply' at the top of the page then scroll down to view the application questions ***an application is REQUIRED to become a member***


In order to become a part of the Over 30 Clan you must register an account on our forum (email validation required / CHECK YOUR SPAM). Once registered we require that you fill out a short application by clicking the Apply tab at the top. Complete step by step instructions can be found HERE (be sure to scroll down after following that link). The application process is a quick and easy way for everyone to get acquainted. Applications are typically processed within 24 to 48 hours. Until you are approved you'll have limited access to the site. If you're still in a "Validating" state you can post questions, comments, and concerns in the guest forum HERE.

If all else fails here's a step by step video on how to join.

I'm trying something new out called the Member Spotlight.  You can volunteer or nominate someone.  I'm thinking right now of doing this once a quarter and switch it up based on the number of submissions we get.  We honor our PS4 brethren this go around LtoTheBoogie who has an amazing story to tell.  Boogie was kind enough to co host our podcast I encourage you give it a listen (episode 26) http://www.soundcloud.com/over30clan and listen to his story first hand.  Below you can read a more in depth biography.

 

Here's a little more background on the man of the hour!

 

7xJITjIl.jpg

 

 

Loren Marvin (LtotheBoogie) grew up in upstate New York and Pennsylvania. He graduated High School in 1996, in the small town of Corning, NY. He was on the delayed enlistment program for the US Air Force, and shipped off to Basic Training in San Antonio, TX that summer.
 
He was trained in Electronics, and spent the next four years in Misawa, Japan as an Electronic Countermeasures Journeyman. (He worked on radar jammers for F16’s)  While in the Air Force, he met his wife and got married at the tender age of 20.  They moved back to the States, Texas specifically, in 2000 to begin civilian life.  They planned to grow the family, and that became a reality in 2005, with the birth of their daughter Naomi. 2 years later Naomi was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and they began their journey into understanding and support for the specific challenges of their daughter. They tried many schools over the years, both public and private, with little satisfactory conditions for the specific emotional and therapeutic needs they could see. They decided that Maranda, Loren’s wife could stay home and provide the best education and support that money couldn’t buy. Maranda and Loren began designing the framework for accomodation and cultivation of the specific skills their daughter possessed and learned an incredible skill set around pushing academically with emotional imbalances. Throughout this time Maranda also worked toward her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, while Loren taught Engineering in High School, and they also ran Houston Autism Resources and Support, as well as Support groups for parent of Autistic Children, and Social Skills groups for kids in Naomi’s age range.  
 
You can check out his LinkedIn profile here: https://www.linkedin...rvin-246308145/
 
 
TR4v6MMl.jpg7hDWUoQl.jpg
 
In September, 2017 they pulled the trigger on opening their own non-profit private school for children with learning differences. Paradigm Development Center had finally been birthed for the Autism Community in greater Houston to benefit from. They acquired a 5 acre property in Cypress,TX that fits the model that they have designed of a variable holistic educational program. Students focus on emotional regulation in the mornings through meditation and then nature education of the property, before hitting the academics and athletics in the afternoons. Loren has had parents crying while explaining the changes they have seen in their children. One parent has explained that a monumental meltdown about math years ago,had them believing that their son would never do math again. Loren has so changed the narrative for their son that he is doing advanced algebra now, while also completing the Harvard CS50 course for introductory computer programming. Loren has made them see potentials in their son that they had no hope of every seeing. 
 
You can check out the School’s website at http://www.paradigmd...pmentcenter.com
 
6XbqhdIl.jpgrzyg1eql.jpg
 
During all of these time and efforts, Loren has used Gaming as a release from the stress of these challenging realities, and has made many lasting friendships in the Over30Clan. He is on our PS4 side, and is regularly spotted supporting player on Battlefield 1 or throwing amazing alley oops on NBA Live 18.

I'd like to thank Boogie for helping out on the podcast and sharing his story!  Stay loud, stay proud brother!

Hiya Boogie,

 

Loved listening to your story on the podcast. Lovely to hear you've started a school based on your own vision and ideas. I've been a teacher for 5 years now and I live in the Netherlands, I could relate to a lot of things you shared. I'm still trying to change things from the inside of the education system. All kudos to you for venturing into the wild. ^^

 

Keep doing what you're doing!

 

Friendly

Paradigm Development Center, My Family, and I would like to Greatly Thank YOU All for your wonderful words of encouragement and donations!! This Journey would not be possible or sustained, if it were not for the support of those around us. As a new organization we feel overwhelmed everyday with the needs of business, Plus the added realities of raising a daughter on the spectrum, and helping other families find the best outcomes for their children. We want you all to know how much you mean to us both as individual people and as the BEST gamer clan out there!!

 

 

Thank You!!

 

Thank You
