Welcome to ClanBase: the leading international meeting place, news source and competition organizer for online gamers.
What is ClanBase?
In short, it's a free system, founded by gamers in 1998, and since then constantly updated and improved by gamers,
serving over 1.9 million active members and 248.000 clans playing 70.000 matches a month!
ClanBase hosts ladders and cups for Counterstrike, Unreal Tournament 2004, Call of Duty 2, Medal of Honor, Battlefield 2,
Quake 4, WarCraft 3 and many more games.
In ClanBase, clans and players have the ability to arrange matches very easily in several exciting ladders and competitions (called Cups).
Important matches are broadcasted in IRC and on internet radio with live commentary.
For Counterstrike, Quake 3 and Unreal Tournament, and other games supporting this feature, we broadcast those matches using internet TV, so people can watch the games live at home.
What Do I Do Next?
If you haven't signed up yet, then you'll want to do that first.
Once you have signed up you will be able to play in 1on1 ladders and competitions.
You can also customize ClanBase by picking your favourite graphic design
and by selecting the games and countries you are interested in.
Feel free to browse around the site using the menu on your left. If you need help you should try our Frequently Asked Questions page
or the relevant forum if you need more assistance.
Do I Need A Clan?
Many of the games ClanBase supports are team games.
If you want to join a ladder playing one of these games you will need to join a clan.
It's easy finding a clan, but they may be demanding some skills,
which means you might have to do some tests and play some matches as a 'recruit' before you become a full member.
There are two ways to find a clan:
Go to the wanted page to
look for clans that have entered a 'members wanted' advertisement.
Go to a league of your choice (using the Ladders menu),
and look for clans that have a little green dot to the right of their
name, which indicates the clan is looking for members. Just click
on the clan that you think matches your taste and skills and then
click on the match-arranger's ICQ or email icon to make contact.
What Else Should I Know?
There are hundreds of admins helping to make it all happen: referees, judges,
cup supervisors, ladder supervisors, news writers and programmers.
The core of admins is called the ClanBase Crew.
ClanBase Admins volunteer their time to make everybody's experience better.
They will look after your interests, but will not condone any cheating or abuse.
Our most prestigious competitions are the EuroCups, which we organize
twice a year. We invite the best clans in Europe to play against each
other on ClanBase during several months. Then we fly the remaining
best of the best over to the EuroCup final LAN event, where they meet
to play for the golden cup, witnessed by hundreds of spectators at
the event and thousands on the internet.
To get a general idea what the ClanBase EuroCups are about,
check out the "ClanBase Eurocup introduction" movie above, visit the ECXV
LAN finals page of the EuroCup finals held in September 2007, or
watch EuroCup III - the movie to see how exciting a game with live commentary can be.
