How do we feel about the difference of using console headsets or Skype voice chats to communicate during games (What's your preference)?
Skype is definitely a must. Not only is that the only way to allow as many people as possible to participate at one time in clan nights, but it's also the best quality. Not to mention, on psn at least, not everyone can speak to each other at the same time. I don't just mean when the clan is divided into two groups; there are people who can't communicate between each other over psn. For example: Sean and I cannot hear each other speak unless we use skype. I recall that Sean and I aren't the only people who have this issue.
Skype also has more features. Text based chat is much more convenient, and people who aren't even clanning may also participate in the call.
How many of us are willing to play games via Steam (especially Free 2 Play titles) as well as consoles
I can't speak for everyone, but I know for a fact that I will never be joining a steam game. PC gaming is yucky.
Is there anybody interested in becoming a Clan leader for specific events? For example, there are games that people want to play which I do not own, and thus cannot run for the duration of the clan.
There was never really a leader in clanning to begin with. In fact, I'd say clanning has been more so unorganized than it has been organized. The only organizing that really takes place is the trivial act of scheduling the event, and tournaments.
Would anyone be interested in "Launch Clans", where we play a newly released game's multiplayer together for the first time?
Again, I can't speak for everyone, but I tend to enjoy playing newly released games in solitude. No spoilers, no distractions, more cinematic. Besides, you can't expect people to buy a game and then wait to play it until 4 more people buy it.
How do people feel about the various levels of seriousness? Some people just want to have a good game whereas others are happy to just mess around? Is this something that you'd be comfortable specifying before the event?
Having fun is always the top priority when playing a game. That goes without saying. Being serious all the time is hardly fun. That being said, non-stop rpg matches and teamkilling upon spawning is a waste of time. A moderate level of seriousness is required.
Again, it would be great to hear a list of games that people would like to play.
When I said that I wanted to play stawhawk, I also meant the beta. (it's included in retail copies of UC3, so I know that quite a few people have access to it)
