Using the Novus clan/forum tag?

Post  Brag on Wed Jan 08, 2014 10:24 pm

Is this allowed? I want to hornor this forum, as well as getting new spies to the forum, and this might be one of the ways to do so.

I would never use it as a right to brag, (my name's BRAG_!... GOD DAMN IT Laughing ), as said before, i just want to show my support, especially now with the new, reborn (see what i did there? Cool ) forum.

I really appreciate Carlotso and Villjacks work here, and i hope to see more activity on here Smile

I'm not entirely sure.
Honestly, if you wanted to wear it, no one can really stop you.
The reason why E2 died is because of the tag. Same with the earlier Novus.
I for one, used to think highly of tags. A 'stamp of achievement' if you will.
I've come to realize that they are, in fact, just a couple of characters, meaningless.
But whole communities have come crashing down because of them.
I recommend that you don't wear it, not sure what others think though.

While I do agree that E2 basically died because of people just flashing their "i'm good at this game" tag, honestly I think that it's...an ok idea to wear it. I mean, how else are we going to spread the word that Novus is back? Considering that we're only just a group of spy fanatics, and it looks like both Carl & Villdjack are both really dedicated to the group and probably would keep good watch on the forums...I don't really know...But for now, I won't wear the tag unless we're really going to try and get more people on board, or if we're given permission to use it.

The most important tag you'll ever come across in terms of TF2 is your team tag. It's a sign if your triumphs, your losses and your camaraderie that you established as part of a team. I'm proud to wear a tag like that.

A tag of the likes of E2 was a sign of your skill level, your exceptionable ability above others and of acceptance.

Which of these two seem more appropriate?


Regarding Novus, I would just simply recommend wearing your team tag. But if you don't have a team, then by all means, show off the tag if you feel like and spread it around. Just know that it does not entitle any sort of higher standing than anyone else, and it is purely for the purposes of just getting this community more noticed.

My thoughts anyhow.

Me and carl talked about this earlier and we share the same opinion, you're allowed to use a novus tag but i dont see any point in using it if you have a team tag. im just saying exactly what carl said :^)

Use it if you want to but if you have it on then at least act mature and not be a retard, including for example not spamming binds or ragefull comments when you get destroyed.

IMO no reason to use it but if you do and then act stupid you should get banned for a time

I like to do it just to show that I'm proud of my team. Same reason anyone is patriotic of a country, or not hiding a crush or whatever. If I don't wear the tag, it's because I feel I'm playing like shit or I'm not being a team player. It's just a sign of my respect for everyone in the team.

Though that's just my denotation to it. I'm sure it means different to everyone.

I'm always shit, so I wear any tag I get at all times.

Except my team folds.

Because of me

Why can't teams just be perfect and not break ;-;

I've missed your meaningful contribution Frowny Smile

He's partially right though, the goal in E2 was mainly just to get the tag as acknowledgement for your efforts, and it was fairly hard to get, then Hurri gave it to people like Noctis and it went tits up. So it's not that funny IMO.

It has nothing to do with the tag. The people that actually valued the group objected to shitters à la Noctis and Demon being invited and kicked up a shitstorm. Either way I'm not getting into the discussion.

E2 died because of the "corruption". The tag was actually a kinda "Im fockin' gud m8, fite me scrub."showing off, imo.

Wrong it died because people kicked up a fuss over the invitation of shitters and Hurri couldn't be bothered dealing with it.

And yes, that's generally what the tags for "elite" groups mean.

Yeah well, if you invite your friends, like a sniper into a spy group, then its not a spy, also not an "elite" group anymore, just a full trash. Also, makes no sense to make an elite group. Its not 2007 or 2010 anymore.

What has that got to do with anything that I said? I never disagreed with the people causing a shitstorm. I simply started that what you said was not true.

Considering that Novus isn't centered around an elite group anymore, there shouldn't really be a problem using the tag. We're just a group of spies with different skill levels just interested in talking about spy and Tf2 in general. If anyone thinks that they'll get immediate recognition as being a feared spy by wearing the Novus tag, they're mistaken, because that's not the purpose of the group. Plus, Novus is literally back from like, a 5 month hiatus so we're not even that big of a group at the moment. (I don't know what I'm talkin' about)
