About †IDS† Foundation
|†IDS† exists well over a year now . It came to life by an idea of two people . Bull the great and Vasago . Since both had enough experience and great will , followed by great enthusiasm , it wasn't hard to start good . With bull and vasago as a backbone , a great clan was soon formed . Name Inferno Dragon Snipers matched perfectly . It started small, like any other , but soon , our game was showing it all , and won matches were building us stronger and stronger . And always , a great importance was put on clean game . Clean in a way that cheat , glitch and bug using players were never overlooked , but dealt with hard and swiftly . Many clans accuse us of cheating , why , due to lack of their experience , gaming knowledge and intelligence in the end . We however always were on trail of cheaters , but had evidences with it , and that's how a term of "Blacklist" soon came to life . †IDS† is founded in desire to be power 400 clan . Why 400 ? Because of the the dragon ideology , fast paced game and general experience of the †IDS† founders . Strong and deadly .|
Being An †IDS† Member
|What does being an †IDS† means ? It means the member must be direct representative of clan , and needles to say , present it in best possible way .Apart from clan founders , first members were Lunatic and Miss Dragon . That's when †IDS† formed a minimum of 4 man team . And as time was passing , new members were coming in . And with tight management and discipline every member in this clan must feel strong feeling of belonging and being a part of a strong sniper team . What is always being asked from both potential and current members is act of devotion , discipline and certain manners . †IDS† is not just a gaming clan but family like environment . So a great importance is put on every members personality and understanding .|
What †IDS† is always trying , is to make furious game . And game settings are all set to that . A most important part is the explanation behind the 400 power . As always , we don't make any other powers less important , but for game that is all fast tempo , little room for error , speed , precision , cunningness and other , power 400 does the perfect job . As in real life , our power is there to kill , not hurt . No man walks away from 7.62 caliber like it never happened . Since Sniper Elite has no advanced damage system , characters behave same after shot , and it would be good if they would be slowed down at least , but nothing such . That's why there is power 400 .One shot , one kill . No med kits . After you get shot you can only re-spawn and seek your vengence . All is done swiftly and without much questions . A hard battle , the dragons battleground . So as the conclusion , †IDS† considers game should be played fast , only way to improve the reflexes and to handle well under the pressure .
|Of course , with every clan , a new set of rules comes . And as rules are always different , so is the case with †IDS† one . Our rules are foremost there to control the behavior of the player . Only commanding voice should be the host one , then after him †IDS† players . We don't allow voting for the reasons we like to control the situation completely , and voting that comes out of nowhere is confusing and may interfere with the flow of the game . As one of the clan leaders referred , †IDS† rules are like military . And yes , they are strict , but in strictness discipline comes .And that is what we lean towards the most . A already established way of behavior so decisions are brought more easily . When you have chaos of everyone doing his own free will , and too much voices in same time , it is hard to be objective and understand what is happening . So , our rules are tight and precise , but mostly these are the guideliness of common sense and should not pose problems in understanding of them .|
†IDS† Game Type
|†IDS† plays a game of cross . And with all those sub-categories like no-spawn , it is important to emphasize that we play "original" cross , known as well as full cross . What this means ? Well , in full cross , there is no movement restriction . Whatever you see , you can go there . This of course discludes going into bugs , not any game supports that . Also , as we don't restrict places you can manevour to , same thing is with the character movement , dancing is allowed because it is hard to think on some sniper art , their way of action when you have bullets flying towards you , and on power 400 , there is only one way , and that is to dodge however the game allows you to . †IDS† also plays another game types , but fast , full cross is our trademark .|
ex co-leader Vasago
As the leader of †IDS† , I am more than glad to be in this clan . With persistency , skills and good people , we have achieved what it certanly can be envied on . From the start we only promoted fair game . And Blacklist had to be done . As controversial as it may be , it is our way of fighting with cheaters , and this is quite unique and typical for us . For all those that are frustrated by continuous defeat on our server , which we have charts to back up , as with everything to claim , we have simple words for them . Learn to play and then claim who is cheater and how . Every player that found himself on the Blacklist had a good reason to be there . †IDS† plays power 400 , and all those that come and say : power 400 noobs , we say the same for them , inflexibile players . We can play all game types and powers , can they ? Proud to be part of this clan and will always continue to promote us and advance higher and higher . We have very quality game , one of the best Sniper Elite videos out there , and successful site which I work personally very hard on . I with the leaders will always only accept good people into clan , and will continue to enforce justice and †IDS† way which those that do not like should just get out of the way or confront us . Don't accusse , but challenge . This is the Sniper Elite way .
Everything so far is good and nicely written . Sniper elite is a life for me . Barren and precise . Like sharpshooter in war , who makes mistakes , dies . I never had an opinion that it needs to be something gentle because life isn’t gentle . We play a game that isn’t for the weak .It means we kill fast , efficient and without mercy . As I don’t have mercy for myself that’s how I don’t have mercy for no one on map . Who doesn’t like that let he search for some game like Barby and 12 princesses and similar . As I play all powers , all maps and all the possible rules that hosts set that’s how I ask that rules I set are being respected , and who doesn’t respect them , he is no longer welcome to play with me . Many people accuse IDS for cheating . It is the truth that if I only think that someone cheats he stays away far from the sniper elite server .Although we are mostly being accused by some pathetic beginners who find it impossible for someone to beat them , even if that someone plays for 4 years and gets 100 to 800 kills every day . 812 is my personal record . Play , practice and learn and only then accuse . For me there is no spawn zone . For me there is no some more important rule than “survive the war” . Who wins the most battles will also win the war.
An old saying I give you all as a gift : “Absolute perfection slips away because there is no perfection , there is always some one here who is better.”
And remember , in war there are no winners , there are only survivors and CORPSES ……..
Sniper Elite, as the name suggests should be an enthralling game providing sniping action. By this,
You fire 25 shots and still find your enemy standing the same as he was before starting to fire all those shots - this is p10. And people around me said,it IS the real deal. Their point "one precise hit in head is the way to end it."I agree on the headshot thing, but hey you forgot the shot to the heart that could actually endit as well, a shot on either knee would leave you kneecapped and any other good spot to hit would be liver or around which should makethe target static, atleast slow!
So, then as time passed by I played with few other people on p200or p150, good games those were. A shot in heart worked in p200, glad it did.did. But this had it's own disadvantage ofpeople using medkits and heal . And healing takes no more than a second. *poof* There goes the realism.
It is then that I got into the influence of p400 games,it just satisfied everything I longed for. Although a shot on shoe couldseen too unrealistic, well thinkof it, no one is definitely going to walk away after being shot in feet by a sniper.So it still falls under realistic circumstance. This is how I began to like p400.
Speaking of clans, they are meant to be a shelter for those who play same kind of gameplay. I, myself have beenin few clans prior to becoming a part of IDS.I loved other clans, with all due credits. They were fun people to be around with, what did those clans lack then? Why did I leave? I of course never had problems of those clans too....Well the answer, they lacked 'Law & Order' .
It more of a clique than a clan,this was the plus point I found in IDS. Also I can frankly admit that everyone in IDS is a mature, fair and sharp shooter.
The game itself was made in an effort to emphasize sniping action in a battle. Long range, concealing changing spots, breaking into enemy lines and sabotaging their bases when least expected and them in their territory is what this game is all about!
Good luck fellow fair players, catch you in my scope soon!
