    Application form

    Post by Moliat on Sun Nov 21, 2010 6:34 am

    Joining DFA consists of several steps. First you must fill out an application topic to join DFA. Read the application form carefully as half-hearted attempts at filling it out will be discarded immediately. Your application will be very thoroughly assessed by the administration and veterans of DFA, if it isn't up to our standards you can expect to be denied.
    If you are accepted you enter the trial stage where you are required to play with members of DFA and prove yourself tactically and maturely. Usually this period lasts for 1-2 weeks if you play the game actively. You don't need to be an awesome shot, but you need to be a very good teamplayer and a mature person. Again, this is a very thorough process due to the high number of applications we receive, so be prepared to having to prove your worth. If you pass the trial stage you will become a full member of DFA with all the privileges this entails.

    Before initiating the application process you need to register on this website.

    If your application form response passes our judgement, you will be promoted to a trialist if we do not currently have 4 active trialists. If this is the case, you will be put on a waiting list to be assigned a trial spot, meaning your trial is not active until you get assigned such a spot. If the trialist spots are not full, you will instantly become a trialist, in which case you need to go to the clan roster and add everyone on it to your Xbox Live Friends list. The members of the clan will expect you to add them and it will be negatively considered if we need to add you ourselves as it shows little interest from your side, adversely affecting the evaluation of your trial.

    Admissions may seem tedious and/or tough, but is simply comprehensive in order to maintain a clan member pool of high quality rather than quantity. In order to deal with the high number of applicants, we need a process to effectively identify those we think will contribute to our mature and casual atmosphere combined with tactical teamplay.

    Application form
    After registering on this website it is time to fill out the application form. In order to fill out and submit your application you need to create a new topic in the Clan Information and Recruitment sub-forum, with the topic title being "Application: YourGamertag". Then copy the below form and paste it into the text box in your new topic. Continue by answering the questions (marked by ' Q#: ') truthfully and intuitively. Make sure you start writing your response after the ' A: ' as this will indicate the beginning of your response to each question. Only high-quality applications will result in a promotion to the trial stage as it shows true interest in joining DFA.
    After filling out the form you click "Send", and then it won't be long until you get an answer. Good luck!

    *IMPORTANT* Read this before applying! *IMPORTANT*

    Note: It usually takes a week for us to process an application, so as to allow as many of our members the opportunity to voice their opinion as possible.
