What’s this? Clans in the new Diablo 3 expansion?

The MiddleEasy community absolutely killed it with our GTAV crew. Then Rockstar killed GTA V with a lack of updates and ridiculously glitchy multiplayer suite, but what can you do? We came, we saw, we conquered and all of that good stuff. 

I think we should do it again.

Many people don’t know this, but Zeus has one of the most incredible Hardcore Mode Diablo 3 characters I’ve ever seen. Dude is on Hardcore and he has a higher Paragon level than Ted Malakhov’s mom. So I think it goes without saying that we’ll be picking up the new Diablo expansion, Reaper of Souls when it drops March 25th.

Reaper of Souls will have invite only clans topped out at about 120 people, so we’re going to have to figure out who the hell we’re going to invite… This is from the official Blizzard release:

Clans are designed to provide players who share similar interests, gameplay schedules, or goals the ability to band together and form tight-knit groups. They’re a great way to communicate with numerous friends at once, organize your play, and generally just keep in touch with those you game with the most.

With a member limit of 120 players, clans are intended to be smaller and invitation only. This means that while you can send a request to join a clan, you will not technically become a member unless you are invited or your request to join the clan is accepted. Also, while anyone can create or join a clan, you can only be a member of one clan at any given time.

So the clans seem pretty intense, but luckily we have ‘communities’ to fall back on if we need to. They are public and larger than clans:

Communities are designed to be a place where players can come together for any number of reasons, including playing the same class, frequenting the same fan sites, or living in the same geographical area. They’re all about fostering relationships between like-minded people, with a keen focus on socialization.

Unlike Clans, Communities are intended to be much larger and more casual. They can be public or private, for example, and support a nearly unlimited number of members. In addition, while you can only join a single Clan, you can be a member of multiple different Communities at the same time.

Just one more month… Who’s getting it?
