We, "ETernal Clan" at "http://www.etclan.net" founded on Wednesday 13 April 2011 by TitaN (a.k.a MaTT, a.k.a. Mr.M), are a growing gaming community with many players who are, every day, enjoying themselves on our game servers. Our goal is to become one of the best online multiplayer gaming communities ever known, if not the best!
We run game servers in Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory, an online multiplayer game constructed, designed and developed by ID software, Splash Damage and published by Activision on 29 May 2003. Our game servers run on version 2.60b of the game (although we do have one server running version 2.55) mainly using the popular server-side modification known as Jaymod developed by Jaybird (website: http://jaymod.clanfu.org/), but also on other popular mods such as NoQuarter, ETPub and ETnam.
Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory is our home, but we also have game servers in Minecraft, Tekkit, Return to Castle Wolfenstein Cooperative, Team Fortress 2 and Urban Terror. We also have gaming teams in Need for Speed World, and Crossfire, so we can be together in games that even don't allow game servers, even in single player games. Why not?
Our registered team and server information and statistics can be found at our "Gametracker" team page, you can also find us on "Facebook" here, on "xfire" here, on "Youtube" here, and on "Steam" here.
If you are not yet a member of our gaming community then you may join us, it's free and easy and the rewards are great; being part of a growing gaming community, making new friends, having access to many features and most of all, endless gaming fun. If you are thinking of joining us you can register which is a quick and simple process which will only take about five minutes. after that you can make your first topic/thread (whatever you want to call it) in the forum named "Join ETernal Clan", your message could just say "Can I join?", but you can choose what extra information you would like included. Soon after you have made your first topic/thread, a moderator will reply to your topic/thread either denying or accepting your joining request. Don't be afraid to post, 99/100 joining requests are accepted, and when you join, you will experience the fun-loving environment of "ETernal Clan"! It never ends, we are eternal!
If you like our clan or game servers, you can think of donating to us to help our community stay tall and keep on aiming higher. You don't have to be a member to donate, but it is much more rewarding. Let me explain, there is two ways you can donate, one way called "To Donate with guidance" which is only accessible to members of our community but is much more rewarding, and another way called "To Donate freely" which both members and non-members of our community have access to, but unfortunately is less rewarding. For more detailed information please view this topic. All donations are welcome and are greatly appreciated. You can donate here!
If you have something to say; a comment or some feed back for instance, feel free to post it on our forum. If you need support with something related to games, your computer, or the forum, post a new topic/thread in the Help Section, someone will reply, most of the time we can solve your problems!
