Recruitment Process

1. Invite only: You must be recruited by a CT member, either in-game, or in any other form of communication.

2. In-game Tag: Once recruited, you may add the -=|CT|R|=- tag to the start of your in-game name; you will have to wear this tag for the minimum of two weeks before you get to wear the real thing. During this period the crew will review your playing ability, and how generally active you are gaming and on forums, etc. We are much more interested in your additude then your skill level on any particular game.

3. Initiation: When you've passed this period, you shall be informed by a Cut Throat that your trial period is over and the vote has begun. The CT members will hold a vote to see if you've proven yourself enough to be a full member. If you fail this vote, you will either have to a) stay on your recruitment period longer, or b) leave CT (if you've been very bad). A extension usually means we need a little more time to get to know you. It should be noted that we are a pretty nice bunch and haven't turned away many people over the years, so don't be intimidated, we probably won't eat you.

4. Success: You've been voted in, join the ranks of the elite as you now add the -=|CT|=- tag to the start of your name in any game we are playing, and start to enjoy CT life! At this time you will also be given special access on the forum; allowing you to see member-only news, strategies and discussions.


Recruitment Style: Select Recruitment

Our team has been together for a long time, and thus we regard ourselves as a family. Since we only bring the truly dedicated into the fold, if you are not related to the clan or its members through other forums, games, or personally, or have not been asked to join by another member, we will hold a poll within the members of CT to verify your recruitment rights. We are looking for mature, respectful members above skill level. If you are a friend of another member, have relation to our clan/community, have some connection to CT on any other forums or have been asked to join by a CT member, we would love to have you on the team. Please post your information in the following format:

Requirements for Joining

We do not believe in strict rules within the Cut Throats. If you can handle yourself with maturity, keep yourself from causing confliction with other groups, and be an all around nice person, you have Cut Throat potential. We don't even require that you play the same games as us. The meaning of CT is to have a great time in whatever game or situation, so official games are not an issue. That being said, we do require a couple different programs:


Steam, the official chat program for the Cut Throats. This is essential if you wish to be a Cut Throat. We stay in contact with each other every day using Steam. You can download the latest version here-


We use Mumble daily when playing a game, match, or just to talk. If you don't have a mic, you can still use the program to listen to us talk, if we are in a match, this is important. It is HIGHLY recommended you do purchase a mic for your computer, though. You can download the latest version of Vent here-


Recruit Period

In order to bring in only the truly dedicated, we enforce a two week recruitment policy. At the end of your period, we will have a vote in the private section of our forums to determine whether or not you are admitted into the Cut Throats. During your recruitment period, you must get to know your team, play games with us, and become friends with your new community. When your vote is finished, you will be immediately notified. If you do not pass, you have the option to retry your two-week period. If (and most likely) you are accepted, you will be given access to our private forums, an optional free email off our site, moderator rights on our forums, and you may then wear the -=|CT|=- tag. At that point, welcome to the Cut Throat community.


Benefits and History of the Cut Throats

If you are a Cut Throat, you stand for a number of things. First, you are a member of a family. In CT, we work, fight and play as a unit. Teamwork and communications are two essential parts of the Cut Throat ideology when we are engaged competitively. The third part is Friendship - if one member of the family has a problem, we all have a problem. You will stand for team and fair play, you will stand for expanding the influence of your clan, and you will stand for the enjoyment of those affiliated with CT.

While we are a laid back, fun loving clan, we also have a long history of kicking people's asses. This is achieved not only by our attitude and will to win, but by the intense skill of our team. Don't get under the impression that since we don't care whether or not you are a skilled player to join the team, we don't care about winning. Stomping asses is a crucial part of the Cut Throat diet, and when the competition rolls around, we make our best efforts to roll the competition.

Lastly, you are joining into a pirate-style democracy here. If there is a problem, suggestion, proposition, or anything else and you are a Cut Throat, you will be heard. We value each member equally, for we all represent the same cause.
