NcB (NorcalBots) was the first clan the majority of us AM members were from. Savsin and his family ran the clan and it was meant to be a family-only clan I believe but they decided to let it get bigger with additional members. Later throughout the lifespan, one single member (Preswylde) ruined everything that was good about NcB. Even after much loyalty to him, he still would be the biggest piss-poor leader and give shit to anyone and everyone that disagreed with him. I left earlier than Anubis and the rest of AM because Luis and I couldn't take the shit. He accused Luis (back then, Luis and I were captains for half of the clan's scrim team) of hacking and it pissed Luis off. I actually lied about leaving (I told Pres it was a personal thing but in reality, I left because of Luis) and Pres gave me shit. Pres would sweet talk with you for the first couple of weeks and then BAM! You would end up on his shit list. So Absurd Minds was formed because Anubis and Serial wanted to show douchebags like Pres how a clan is REALLY ran. None of the bullshit ranking system that NcB and XvG ran. All you need is the clan leader (in our case clan LEADERS) and members. THAT IS IT. So there's a little bit of history for the newer AM members lol.
An proof is quite easy to see. The original NcB ran with Apo at the top only and everyone else was just members.. Ran smooth and everyone was happy. Towards the end when he got tired of running it he gave it to pres.... ranks came in and Im pretty sure i was the first to leave lol... SP might have left before me but i left before the scrim stuff started so who knows...
Then shortly after that apo and the rest of the fam followed and again we were family only... With XvG it was the same way... Basically Apo and I ran it with shadow as the "owner" a piss poor one if you ask me cared more about playing than the actual managment and costs of the clan (servers he wanted and website)
Then we left and they have this huge system of ranks Owner, Leader, Co-Leader, Senior Officerx2, Junior Officerx2, Scrim Team, Members
Again lots of trouble.. I miss the good ol days lol... I dont scrim but our community was never about that until post pres.
Apart from your scrimming lol you guys have done very well... by the way our linux test server is up... and working on scripts but its working awesome lol... thanks for your help anubis.. lol. (and i ran all 4 using terminal windows since were on a GUI worked great)
