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.

Hi all,

 

I’m honored to be a new member of this community, and look forward to making new friends here. I’ve been very impressed with how nice and welcoming everyone has been.

 

A little bit about me… I’m originally from Romania. I moved to the US when I was 10 years old. I lived in Chicago for about a year before moving with my family to Arizona, where I just moved again in August of 2017 after being away for school. Places I’ve lived in while in school include California, Kentucky, Nebraska, and more recently, Minnesota. I’m working on finishing my PhD in Psychology; am ABD (all but dissertation), and am in the process of completing this last step before looking for employment. I also have an MBA and graduate certificates in developmental disabilities and gerontology, and hope to pursue a career in the field of aging. I’ve worked as a case manager, legal manager, family support specialist, and mental health counselor, and I’ve also held some jobs in IT. I love technology and enjoy promoting education in gaming.

 

I run a Minecraft server but I hardly ever play as I’m usually working while I’m online moderating and cheering people on. I guess mostly I play vicariously but I do look forward to playing some games with other folks on this community. Path of Exile looks interesting but also complex (part of the appeal), and I could use some help learning to play it. I sometimes enjoy playing The Sims 4, but my history with The Sims can probably best be described as a love/hate one. I will play it for a time then completely quit for a few years and then return back to it. I’m a night owl and am online at night a lot. I usually end up getting to know people in other time zones which this schedule, which is great. I would also enjoy getting to know any Romanians or Arizona residents who may be members of this clan J.

 

What else… I have played many MMORPG’s and other games throughout my long time as a gamer… Some that I can recall right now include:

7 Days to Die
Age of Empires
Asheron’s Call
Baldur’s Gate
Bioshock
City of Heroes
DAOC
Deus Ex
Diablo
Divine Divinity
Dungeon Siege
Evercrac… err, Everquest
Fallout
Final Fantasy
Halo
Hellgate
League of Legends
Mass Effect
Neverwinter Nights
Path of Exile
Planetside
Prince of Qin
Return to Castle Wolfenstein
Shadowbane
Star Wars Galaxies
Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic
StarCraft
Terraria
The Elder Scrolls
The Sims Online
The Witcher
Thief
Ultima Online, Anarchy Online
Warcraft II
White Wolf vampire games; I liked Redemption more than Bloodlines
WoW
and I’m sure there is at least one more I forgot to mention, lol.

 

Some of my very first games include:

text based MUD’s

Commander Keen

Mechwarrior

Prince of Persia

King’s Quest

 

I also like playing games like chess and scrabble, while I'm not particularly into card, racing, or sports games.

 

Besides making friends who share a passion for gaming, my goals here are to pick up and join some of the games y’all play regularly, and to explore ways, and find support, through which to evolve my own identity as a gamer. Like many of you, I started and continued gaming because I found the games themselves fun and entertaining and I learned that there are many other gamers who are also cool and decent people. As gaming continued to be a constant in my life throughout good times and bad times, and through times that were particularly salient to my growth and maturity as an individual, friend, and professional, I found myself reflecting more and more on the meaning of gaming in people's lives, on its pros and cons for myself and others in different stages and contexts in life, and on the way gaming can be leveraged toward promoting health and well-being.

 

I not only have an interest in playing games buy have become more and more interested in learning how others engage with games, in exploring the impact gaming has on individuals throughout the lifespan, and in integrating gaming toward helping people, both personally and professionally.

 

This has inspired me to venture into the realm of server ownership and to use the Minecraft server I have run since 2014 as a platform to promote and facilitate education and certain types of activities and interactions that further my own interests for growth as well as to contribute positively to the gaming community. In addition to making some friends here, picking up some new games and playing them with fellow clan members, I may wish to host other games besides Minecraft, and accomplish additional goals of the noble and useful variety in niche markets and unique styles. I welcome collaboration, recommendations, and additional insights into these pursuits as I am most certain of one thing: I cannot and do not wish to do it alone. 

 

I want to make it clear though that I do not wish to pursue anything that is against this community's spirit or regulations, or that lacks full backing/approval of the owners/admins. While I'm sharing some tentative intents here, I also want to emphasize that I aim to be fully compliant and respectful of this community's rules and priorities.

 

With regards to the list of games I shared, I hope to replay some of these games and to also play additional games in series that I have not played yet with members in this community. While I eventually hope to host more servers, for these and maybe other games, disclosing what I have so far is more than enough for this introduction. I hope to follow up with another post at some point in the near future with more information about which games I'd like to play and/or host and I hope that those interested in playing with me or contributing time or specialized expertise in helping with hosting endeavors will let me know. 

 

I also do have a pretty busy life and am still new to this community so there is still much I have to learn. I also want to contribute toward helping this community with its needs and goals so please don't hesitate to call on me and I will do what I can to help. Just don't ask for money  because I'm currently quite broke. In the upcoming weeks/months please be patient with me while I may lurk in some Discord channels, make noob mistakes, and maybe ask some weird questions. Feel free to recommend games to me, provide feedback and suggestions, and ask me questions.

 

Thank you for welcoming me; I am very glad to be here, and look forward to growing as part of this awesome community as well as to helping it grow!

 

BUILD EACH OTHER UP!

Welcome! If you ever move to PS4, hit me up. Good luck with the dissertation. I know from personal experience that it is not a fun thing to do :)

Well I'm having technical difficulties here, can't seem to get my cursor under this quote box :/   Anyway this is something I am really interested in too.  I also have a degree in psychology, but its only a BA.  I was reading a really interesting article the other day talking about how people involved in gaming communities are in general happier.  I was in a waiting room and didn't get to finish the whole article... I kind of wish I tore it out of the magazine like I wanted to now because it was really thought provoking.  I'm sure we'll be sharing thoughts/observations on this in the time to come! 

I not only have an interest in playing games buy have become more and more interested in learning how others engage with games, in exploring the impact gaming has on individuals throughout the lifespan, and in integrating gaming toward helping people, both personally and professionally.

Welcome from the South.  I am a slow starter so you will be seeing me here and there.  Right now I am playing WOT.  Some clanmates got me into WOS.  Both are fun, especially with clanmates.  See you around.
