Hello all. Welcome to the officially informally formal unofficial recruitment thread of the Iron Dragoons [IRD]. It is our best guess that you stumbled upon this thread because you are A) interested in becoming an Iron Dragoon, B) interested in mocking us, or C) you were wandering around on Reddit when you clicked a pop-up that was actually a black hole and you somehow ended up with this URL in your search bar. Whatever your reason may be, we welcome all prying eyes to take a peek.

 

 

 

First things first...

 

What is a dragoon you may ask? :ohmy:

 

In basic essence, dragoons are a form of cavalry. Originally created as mounted infantry, European commanders continued evolving dragoon formations into actual cavalry units. Though their specific role and outfitting varied from nation to nation, by the late 18th century most dragoons were seen as heavy cavalry. Though they were not an ideal match against other cavalry units, dragoons were very versatile. Armed with firearms such as the arquebus or musket, dragoons were usually capable of ranged attacks in addition to hand-to-hand combat. Dragoon regiments continue to exist today, though the ones involved in combat are no longer mounted on horseback. Notable examples include the dragoon regiments still in existence in the British Army, such as the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards or 1st The Queen's Dragoon Guards.

So what's the difference between a dragoon and a dragon?

 

Ahhh, these are the questions that keep us awake at night. Well, first off, the latter is taller than the former by a few feet. The latter also spits out fire while the former simply spits. The former might wear a set of non-functional wings while the latter's are usually functional when present. You will also notice that dragoon has two O's as opposed to the one O in dragon.

 

The Complex Basics

 

Originally founded by AMRAAM120Rx (where is that guy?) many months ago, the Iron Dragoons [IRD] try to maintain the fighting spirit of dragoons in WoT Blitz. In a [currently slacking] campaign, we envision the tags [IRD] to be a beacon of hope for Green Team while at the same time being the Angel of Death for Red Team. In additional efforts, we also take pride in claiming to be the most democratic clan on the forums (we strive to be as democratic as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea :trollface: ).

 

However, [IRD] also understands that even the best players sometimes aren't even that dedicated to the game. We get it, life happens. Take charge of your priorities and put Blitz on the back burner.

 

 

For that reason, we have little participation requirements once you are in. No need to check in, no weekly minimum gameplay requirements, etc. Heck, you could hate us and swear vendetta on us the moment you're on board and we'll still be proud to call you an Iron Dragoon.

 

This also means that we do not require, have, nor are currently interested in TS. If you want to remain a casual Blitz player who's not that involved but still wants a set of tags then this is the clan for you. As an added bonus, you get one of our nice clan sigs! (Who wouldn't want to jump aboard the band wagon now?)

Founding Members (Who We Haven't Heard From in a While BTW):

For those interested in joining, I apologize in advance by saying that we do have minimum standards for our player composition. No, we're not Grim or Krieg or Sparta or some other first-rate clan, so we're not expecting über-unicums to come flocking in (but if you are one then welcome aboard). For those interested in joining, the requirements are as follows:

- At least a 52% win rate

- Average damage of at least 900

- Minimum of 2000 battles

- At least one Tier 9 tank with 100 battles

OR

- At least one Tier 8 tank with 100 battles AND a minimum average damage of 1000 in said tank

- We might also check Star1, WN7, and WN8 ratings on WoTBStars.com

- Some attempt to act calm and cool in battle (at least try to cut out on the cursing)

Note: Current members "exempt" from requirements above (mostly everyone is beyond or close to fulfilling these anyway)

 

As always, exceptions can be made and there is a little bit of wiggle room on these requirements. We usually platoon with potential candidates. If we have some reservations about stats, some of our members will very likely approach you and ask for a platoon session. Do not worry and we hope that you do not take this the wrong way. We realize that people have bad streaks sometimes or that they may discover the forums later on in their Blitz careers. So far, just about every potential candidate we have tooned with made the cut. Seeing how someone performs in battle can sometimes say a lot more than numbers.

 

 

Remember how I said we pride ourselves in claiming to be the most democratic clan on the forums? Well there is a merit of truth to that. We vote on big clan decisions and we also vote on ALL POTENTIAL CANDIDATES. We put great value in our members' opinions and that includes their thoughts on the platoon sessions.

 

 

That just about wraps it up for our recruitment thread folks. Thanks for shooting us a visit. We'll be sure to check out your clan recruitment threads and post some meaningless praise posts there as well. In meantime, c'ya on the battlefield! :honoring:

 

 

(Just kidding. I mean all the praise I give you guys.)

I wanted it so I could input it here:http://wotbstars.com/index.php?usr=Rustbucket_44&geo=NA&forceSave=on&lng=eng, I am not an officer and so one of them needs to deal with your application.

Had a good run with Zugen on our 54s a while ago. That guy is a beast! He had 5 kills on our first two games and consistently topped the damage list on the rest.

 

We meds went Mill on Malinovka. Just as the red heavies reached the top he called "Bail". We dropped back and flanked while our campers kept them busy. We caught them from behind and had a lot of fun. Good call! :honoring:

Thanks buddy, sorry the luck ran out when I rolled in the T62. I swear when I hit 50% wr with it, it's gone! You had some nice games yourself sir, had a great time! Herodotus, I witnessed your near Raisin today at Malinovka, my dad was on your team at lunch today and hated seeing that last one run to force a draw. You had him! I've had a great time in this clan, glad I joined up with you guys. Great tankers and people, I like it.

About to add a few more X's. I've gotten the M48 since your post I think, to go with the 62, obj 140, and is7. E5 is researched, and the e50m will soon be done. Just need about 14k in the next month or so. Also seems Herodotus is our first to clear 60% wr, congrats! I'm sitting on a 1.29 star rating that's steadily climbing, 60% is probably a few thousands battles away for me.

Ok, just read the new version of the OP. We now beat the [MOM] recruitment thread for shear LOL factor.

Yes, I read the fine print.  And didn't stop until the end.  Good game.

 

[IRD] is a solid clan for anyone looking to join.  Good folks.  +1
