Welcome to Avalanche, THE one-and-only longest consecutively-running clan in Triple Triad. Avalanche has been a force, embodying the honor and competitive spirit it is known for since before TTA, and continues to reflect the rich history of Triple Triad through its members and its performance. The clan tag alone symbolizes what we have always stood for: honor and excellence.

As the leader of Avalanche, I'd like to state, to our members and to the community, that Avalanche is poised for a true return to glory. We are active, skilled, and dedicated to returning to the top of the clan scene. This means I'll be asking a little more of our members, to ensure that they are helping to fulfill our mission. Knights of Avalanche - take arms!

Clan tags: -avl or ~avl for members.
Clan tags for elites: -@vl or ~@vl.
(updated 8/22/11)



Clan Membership

Activity is key - we need members who are sticking around and contributing to the clan, whether through activity in chat, playing games, or participating in events within and outside of the clan. If you plan on being away for some long period of time, give us a heads up. If you disappear for months, without a word, you are likely to get dropped from the roster. As some around the community know, I don't give multiple chances to re-join Avalanche, so take your membership and dedication seriously - we are not just your average clan!

Staying active is simple: just stop by chat, play a few games, and let us know that you're still willing to be a part of the mission.

Membership in multiple clans is allowed; however, priorities for site-wide clan events will be given to members who demonstrate their commitment to Avalanche (through sole membership in Avl or listing Avl as your primary clan).


Recruiting and Tryouts

Acceptance into Avalanche is multifaceted: you need to maintain our clan chemistry, and have the skills (or potential) to contribute to the clan and TTA as a strong player. We are always looking for both veterans of TT sites AND folks new to the TTA scene.

If you are interested in joining, you'll need to speak to myself, one of our co-leaders, or chat mods. The tryout will consist of three games, against opponents selected by the leaders. You'll need to demonstrate your skills in those 3 games to gain acceptance to the clan.


Elite Status

In years past, the Avalanche elites represented the strongest corps of players on the site, willing to take on anyone with their masterful skill and fiery competitiveness. Details to come, but elite status will now be attainable for any member who wishes to prove themselves worthy. Some of the best players in TT history bore the ~@vl tag - are you good enough?

UPDATE:
Some more specifics on gaining elite status in Avalanche: elite status must be earned via an elite status tryout. In order to be eligible for a tryout, you must be in only one clan (and that clan must be Avalanche, naturally). The result of the 3-match tryout must be an overall win. If the tryout is not won, waiting period for a new elite status tryout is one month. Elite status is the most prestigious rank an Avalanche member can attain, so its acquisition is not easy. However, for those strong players out there who feel they have what it takes, perhaps its pursuit will prove to be a most memorable journey.


Knights-in-Training (led by Delial and Emerald)

We have also introduced a "Knights-In-Training" admission, by which players who do not pass a tryout but have potential for improvement and enthusiasm for the game, are admitted to Avalanche conditionally. As a Knight in Training, you can earn voice in chat, as well as the right to use the clan tag by completing your training, as described on the Avalanche forums.


Graphics

Cife is working on some sexy new avatars for Avalanche members, so if you are interested in one, please let him know (and include the nick you would like to use, as well as the image/images you'd like to be part of it).


Events

•Quest for the Crown (run by Stryke)
It's a series of small chat tournaments, designed to keep chat active and fun- so get into Avl chat and challenge for the crown! Currently, A-mo22 holds the crown, so you can challenge him anytime!

On a related note, One True Crown is coming back (for real, this time). The notion is simple: successfully DEFEND your crown (once you win it) 3 times consecutively and you'll qualify for the One True Crown tournament. Maximum of 4 qualifiers, or however many there are by the end of the year. These One True Crown contenders will be fighting for:

Image

848, Penance, Level: 8, values: 10, 5, 3, 5.


Remember: the more QftC challenges that get played, the greater your chances of qualifying for One True Crown.


•Delial's Avalanche Challenges (run by Delial)
These fun-challenge-like challenges are for Avalanche members only, and are a fun way to stay involved and playing. Shorter time frames, more frequent prizes, and some friendly competition here. Look for these challenges in their new home: Clan Tournaments section of the TTA forums.


In Closing:

Currently, we are the winners of Clan League (Spring Season)!
Goals for the new year (2012) - win Clan Wars and Clan League!

For those interested in being on either (or both) of our CW and CL teams, please state your interest to one of our clan leaders.

I'd also like to thank those of you who have been so dedicated to Avalanche. And to those of you who are fairly new (or returning after some time) to Avalanche, welcome. Now let's go out and reclaim the clan scene!

First, I'd like to thank Doomy for kicking off the new thread.

Secondly, I'd like to congratulate our Clan League teams from the Spring and Fall seasons. We were able to win the Spring season, but fell short in the Championship. I'm proud of every team member, so a big thank you goes out to Steve, Doomy, Delial, Ruffles, Felix, Cife, and Emerald. We'll be ready to contend next year, and if anyone is ready to join our efforts, please let me know.

Additionally, we will be having a couple of new activities coming up, so if you are in Avalanche, I hope you stick around to participate. If you aren't in yet, come by for a tryout, and join the clan with the most tradition and honor in all of TTA.

One more thing:

The latest round of our recent tournament is up. Apologies for the delay, but good luck to Cife, Delial, Alva, and Emerald.

I agree, good luck to Cife, Alva and Emerald. I hope they all win!

Also cheers to everyone (excepting the obviously not awesome person, who's name may or may not rhyme will smelly all) for being awesome.

I definitely enjoyed my run in the fall season, I do feel bad that I couldn't finish the job, but it was a hard fought battle. I would like to thank the team for the assistance, hand advice, and moral support through all the games.

But for now we can all rest and and continue improving our skills. :)

Seeing this is my only Clan, If a space opens up to compete on the behalf of Avl I would just like to let you know I'm up for representing.

One of these things is not like the others one of these things just doesn't belong. Can you tell me which thing is not like the others before I finish my song?

We should think about getting a cvc together soon to keep some people busy :)

Definitely a good idea Felixir. I know things have been quiet on the activity front lately, was out of town for a few days on my end.

Please PM me ideas you may have for what you'd like to see in Avl in 2012, or just talk to me about it in chat, and I'd be glad to start putting things in motion. :)
