Did you ever send me the friend request? I will be available tomorrow, Thursday March 2nd. Let me know if you want to mic up and play some games.
Sorry, have been busy today with college application.
Do you possibly have a copy of MKX on PC or a player with a copy on PC? I dont even have MKX on PS4 (originally had it on Xbox, only got a PS4 recently)

Sadly I do not PC. The closest I get to PC gaming is some FNAF with my daughter from time to time.

Alright ladies and gentlemen with the trailer this morning I wanted to say a few things.

There are tons of teams out there these days. Teams, Sponsors, other clans. None of them are even close to what we have. You are some of the most inspiring, supportive people I've had the chance of working with, and I've ran this team for 13 years lol. The amount of brotherhood that we have, the way we are always there for one another win lose or salt. It makes me so proud to see it.

One thing I can tell you for sure is WB has huge plans for INJ2. Like huge. Our success we've had in MKX was just the beginning of your journey. You've experienced your first taste of tournament nerves, you've had your big wins and disappointing losses. You are miles ahead of any new tournament participant that joins for INJ2. YOU are the senior players. YOU are the guys to beat. This game is yours and I can't wait to be by your side when you take it.

Thank you.

Mission Statement
STB has been up and running since 2004, with the release of MKD and remains The MKC's longest running clan. With representation at over 30 different offline events and majors STB is always in the public eye. Our goal is to keep the hype for NRS games fresh in the community and be a role model for good sportsmanship and be community leaders. We level up as a team and support the clan scene by giving other members props and information on tournaments when applicable. We also Participate in clan Battles.

Levelling up
The goal of most members who join a clan is to get better and become familiar with people to have sparring partners for either online or offline success. We Pride ourselves on giving folks without a strong offline scene an online method of levelling up and preparation for Success. We realize that online is not exactly equivalent to offline experience but we make it the best we can if thats all you have. We also will search and find tournaments for you in your area and be there for the live stream when you participate and compete as well as congratulate you and head back to the lab for more training afterwords!

Recruitment
One of the most common questions I get is "How do I join STB?". We do not do official tryouts like most clans. Our recruitment is based on three certain factors:

  • Character: How you portray yourself to other community members. If you are a respectful, eager to learn person we want to hear from you. We discourage members being irrationally salty. By this i mean sending hatemail, putting down other members, or refusing to work on weak points that have been shown to you by clan members. Eagerness to learn and get better is probably the number 1 trait from my point of view
  • Competitiveness: We are looking for someone who wants to compete and bring their game to the next level. I apologize but we are not looking for people who play once a week or "when they have time". offline aspirations are a must, and we want you to be asking us for help often
  • Skill level: We do not require you to get top 8s at every event you go to to join us. Im of the strong believe that "you can teach skill, but not attitude". As long as your attitude is right, the skill level doesnt matter as much. That being said, you should have a basic understanding of how NRS games work, frame data and some of the finer points.
All new members are voted on by the clan in its entirety. Often if members are unfamiliar with a player, they will vote in favor of the inclusion if they get a strong referral from a clan mate.

A word from the leader
I have been running STB for a decade now and am really passionate about what I do. My members are my number 1 and I strive day in and day out to make sure they are properly represented, respected, and recieve all the proper training. Whether it be private lessons, Hooking them up with a character specialist(in or out of the clan), or just giving them words of encouragement or a person to empty their salt on. Without my members STB wouldnt be what it is and I appreciate everyones contribution how big or small. I love this community and am very proud to represent my brand and values within it.

Seniority and Clan levels

STB runs on a belt system much like that of Martial arts. Here is how it works

Belt system is in effect to help us gauge peoples want/need/status on progression. In order from least to most power is white,blue,purple,brown,pink,black,Red. Red is assigned only to the Clan leader(me) and must be voted on unanimously upon my exit/retirement by the entire clan. Pink belt does not progess or digress past that point, but is a permanent position and is considered part of leadership. Rest are as follows:



White Belts –

You are the new recruits. It is your job to show us that you want to level up and be the best that you can be. This is a probation of sorts, as you are officially a member of STB we are still getting to know you and watch you play and evolve. At this stage just focus on leveling up and attending locals/majors when you can.

Blue Belts –

Proven Status in STB, we know you well by know and need to see your eagerness to move up the belt ladder. You are expected to take a white belt member or two under your wing and show us how well you can teach and help improve. To reach this belt level you must have attended one offline event, either local or Major. Or won one of our online tournaments with 10 entrants or more.

Purple Belt –

Close Family member. This is the point where you should start talking about Taking over some STB community activities and really becoming a part of the STB lifestyle and repping us at more events and majors. You need one major appearance as STB to be considered for this position. We will also rely on you as one of our clans “big hitters” as you will be the most focused on your gameplay.

Brown Belt –

You’re a stand in for leadership when they are gone for extended lengths and are an eager to help the clan in any way shape and form. This position is by experience only and online/offline events are not a qualifying factor. Only those with true STB spirit will reach this belt level, and only this belt level will be considered for Black Belt promotion once one leaves.

SGT Reed


Pink Belt –

Clan Communication and Human Resources. You will be the members who are in charge of the clan twitter, organizing events, keeping the clan as a whole up to date on clan related activities and the go to person in the case a member has a complaint about leadership. If there is a complaint you will handle it anonymously and present leadership with the issue so we can address it and go forward with fixing it.

Black Belt –

Clan leadership. You assist in scheduling of STB events, are a role model for the clan, help moderate the STB Team Chat, and help with big decisions affecting the direction the clan is going. You have the most STB experience out of all members and a strong will to see STB succeed. Only 4 black belts are assigned at a time and are replaced by a brown belt upon resignation.

Red Belt –

Official Clan leader. Always looking out for clans best interest and helps leveling up all members of all belt levels, managing the tournament players upcoming events and prep, and Has the highest level of authority in the clan with the ability to override most all decisions if necessary. This position is the “face” of the clan and should make public appearances and put STBs name forward at all times when appropriate and possible.
