CQB Masters (CTF Mokra) winner 2004
|2001 by CAPTAIN BECKBOND, EAGLE ONE and Dutchie|
The MercenaryS is a competitive clan for open-minded Armed Assault players who enjoy playing together with respect, good manners, fairness but also with no mercy. MCY is proud to have the first and only gay bar in the community. The MCY forum also has unofficially the largest number of emoticons in the community.
In MCY each clan member is respected. Their ranks, individual strengths and ideas are taken to account and members help each other out in trouble and never leave a fellow Mercenary behind. Flexible teamwork is more important during battle than individual non-coordinated operations or strict orders, therefore everyone has a word in mission briefings. MCY's battles are usually led by the boss Frantic.bay or in rare cases his older brother S-0S.bay or Celery.
If you think you fit into this team and enjoy playing Armed Assault in a funny, relaxed but still serious enough atmosphere, come to the [MCY] MercenaryS -GAY BAR- server and get familiar with the boys! MCY shares a server contract with the AGSF clan and both clans have their own servers at a good price.
MCY is always looking for some nice competition and hard clanwars. Because of the clan's challenging and persistent nature MCY has performed remarkably well in OFP tournaments and leagues.
The clan was originally named Mercenarys (without the capital S in the end). The reason for the mispelling of Mercenaries is not fully clear, but oldest members claim that it was thusly named to distinguish MCY from other clans with a similar name like "Mercenaries", "Mercenary", "Merc" and so on. The capital S came along some time around 2005 in a style reform introduced by Frantic.bay.
The logo symbolises MCY in many ways. The inner section is formed by the letters M, C and Y. The wreath symbolises victory and professionalism and the stars keep track of the clan's accomplished major victories. The pink color is there because it's cute. Upside down the logo also resembles the peace sign, which gives a good picture of what the team is like.
MCY has had lots of members during the years. At one point the clan's active member count was huge and two groups inside the clan were formed, called 1st Platoon and 2nd Platoon.
Both platoons operated as independent teams in leagues and had a friendly rivalry with each other, organising trainings that let each platoon work as a complete unit with the members and leaders they would have in real clanwars. The 2nd Platoon led by Col. Notorious and Cpt. Erebo$ was the more successful one, bringing home a CZL championship in 2004. The platoons merged into one team again later on.
MCY has members from all over the European region: UK, Germany, Czech Republic, France and Norway to name a few. Thus our Teamspeak language is English.
The current active members of MCY are:
Celery (Master Chief)
Hezap (First Sergeant)
Boris_Britva (Staff Sergeant)
Jim Gun (Sergeant)
Olli the SAW (Sergeant)
THE BOB (Specialist)
De Falco (Private)
The complete list of all mercenaries can be found here.
MCY uses the ranks of the United States Army and Navy as a template to categorize its members into different kinds and levels of occupation and activity. The officer and enlisted ranks are equal matching with each paygrade upwards from Staff Sergeant and Second Lieutenant. Officers arrange wars, take part in planning and put effort into the off-game aspect of the clan, enlisted members are more into executing their combat orders with a professional touch. Warrant Officer is a special rank for a member below Captain who takes care of matters like the clan's money traffic or website.
The following are required from new members:
- Open mind and sense of humor
- Time to play the game and read the forum
- A working microphone
- Preferably an active MSN Messenger account
Privates have to be active for around a month and integrate into the team before they are promoted to full membership. Recruits who don't fit in are asked to leave.
The [MCY] Map Making Team has started with own mission projects back in OFP days. Now MCY is making quality missions for Armed Assault. JimGun and guerilla are the Cooperation mission makers, Celery prefers to build really funny DeathMatch missions and enjoys to help others out with his scripts, S-0S.bay helps with scripts and invents new game-modes and Frantic.bay is working on CaptureTheFlag missions.
- Celery released his Essential DM Collection in May 2007 in the BIS forums.
- Frantic.bay released his [MCY] CTF Missions Pack in June 2007 at the BIS forums.
