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.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragoon

 

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. It is only a concidence that our mascot tank is the Type 62 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 and in the game (we strive to be as democratic as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea :trollface: ;).

 

We are also Sister Clans to the rest of the Iron Cavalry family, which includes [IRH].

 

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. However, if you wish to be a part of our excellent CW team, Discord is required. As an added bonus, you get one of our nice clan sigs! (Who wouldn't want to jump aboard the band wagon now?)

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 some 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 56% win rate

- Minimum of 2000 battles

- At least one Tier IX tank with 100 battles AND at least 1900 avg damage

OR

- At least one Tier X tank with 100 battles and 2100 avg damage

- We might also check STAR1 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.)

 

Clan Wars History

 

IRD didn't particpate in CW1, but players went to IRL (disbanded) for the duration of the war.

 

http://wotbcw.com/

 

In CW3, IRD played in 6-6 Encounter and took 1st place!

 

We plan on fighting just as strong, and in a higher tier during CW4 and are actively recruiting to meet this goal. Sign up today!

War. War never changes.
The Romans waged war to gather slaves and wealth. Spain built an empire from its lust for gold and territory. Hitler shaped a battered Germany into an economic superpower.
But war never changes.

Hell yes.  Since no clan can beat mine without bringing in ringers, I'm happy to come work for other clans in their tournaments too.

With the promise of tournaments returning, we are very much actively recruiting to find players who want some competitive play as well as if you want a clan with a Constitution, consider the Iron Dragoons! We have good players, platoon opportunities, a vibrant Discord community, clan supply X, and we're in the top 30 clans according to WoTBStars! All applications are voted on for a period of 24 hours by the whole clan and you'll hear back from us. :)
