Gents,


I'm the CO of Recruit Training for a mature, tactical gaming clan called the Sea Snipers (clan tag [SS]) and a long-time member of AVS forum...


As you may know, the Sea Snipers authored and illustrated the multiplayer sections of the Official BradyGames Guides (the books you buy at GameStop, Best Buy, etc.) for COD4 and COD World at War. You may have seen our 'Sea Sniper Tips' throughout the guides. We also worked on many of the 'Socom' game guides for the PS2.

We are currently looking for a few good men to compete in COD [email protected] on the Xbox 360.


The Sea Snipers are a professional gaming clan, over 6 years old. We are a tight knit brotherhood with an average age of about 30 and many of us are active or ex-military. We play 4 nights per week (2 practices and 2 wars) plus any other additional events that might be held such as inter-clan tournaments and scrimmages. All events are held at 10:30 pm est., and practices last 2 hours.




We run our own league called S.E.A.L. (Sea Snipers Evade & Assault League www.seasnipers.net/seal ) and we're going on our 12th season. The league is played with hardcore rules and no perks - making COD a squad-based, non-respawn tactical shooter, rather than the run-and-gun style of play that you find in most public rooms.


You must meet the following requirements to be considered for a tryout...


• Must be 21 or older.

• Must be able to attend Sunday (from 10:30pm est till 12:30), Monday, Wednesday (from 10:30pm est till 12:30) and Thursday night events. (mon and thurs are matches and usually only last about 1hr.)

• Must be able to deal with our "Virtual Boot Camp" for 1 month.

• Must be willing to change your XBL name during the recruitment process. (you can change it back to whatever you like if recruited)

• Must have a router.

• Must have AIM.

• Must not be in any other clan during recruitment, and cannot be in any other clan if recruited.


If you want to be part of one of the most professional, top-tier clans in gaming, please enlist today. Send an email to [email protected]


Thank you.

Geez, you sure that's not the German Schutzstaffel (SS). Lots of rules to play a game.

It's a good group of guys and we have a lot of fun. I'm going on 5 years with the clan, and it's been great.


When I started, Socom II for the PS2 was the game we played. Here's a clip of me accidentally teamkilling my squad on Socom 3...

Also, working on the guides is fun. We get betas way before the general public. Sometimes we get to visit the development studio.

The last guide for COD [email protected] turned out really cool, it's on great paper, lots of pics, real nice book.

Sea Snipers, I haven't seen you guys around since SOCOM 2. Probably don't remember but we were an alliance clan that played with you guys all the time. The clan we ran at the time was [PHS] Perfect Headshots.


Also nice job on the strategy guides.

I used to do FPS tournaments and it was great fun but once you have a wife and children these type of things can end up consuming way too much time that should be spent with family (especially one as dedicated as Shooters group is) . No offense , I am just saying that gaming on this level can have a negative impact on family life .

Sure, I do remember you and [PHS]. Socom I & II was really an event in gaming that won't happen again. There was ONE console and ONE squad based shooter out at the time. So, if you weren't on PC, you were playing Socom. I do miss everyone from Socom, but there are some great people playing COD as well. Thanks for the note on the strategy guides. We couldn't do the Socom: Confrontation guide because of the COD [email protected] guide being at the same time, so we were disappointed about that.

We've had several active duty guys head off to the sandbox and other points abroad fighting the good fight.


We keep them in our thoughts, and our clan has been raising money to send care packages directly to our guys in the desert, with extra stuff for their squadmates. Our newest recruit completed a dart tournament fundraiser that went very well, kudos to him.


So, we've been recruiting on and off for a year to fill these spots. And, yes, I've put up a couple of posts. I'm not promoting my clan for promotion's sake; I'm just trying to find quality guys to fill the spots vacated because of the war.


We're looking for tactical, adult players. My thoughts are that WE (the AVS COD guys) fit that bill. I've gotten some good responses from this forum, so thank everyone for that.

Very true. It does sound like it would be fun and would probably help me get better at the game, but I would probably end up having to either give up everything else I like to do each week or end up in divorce court.


For single guys though, it sounds great.

My friends and I play most nights for a few hours. We generally only play Hardcore TDM. I know we have played several of your group at different times. I remember the SS tags. Would never play with anyone but my boy's but if your looking for some good guy's to beat up on or try some tactics on shoot me a PM. Good luck.

Thanks for the comments guys.


We have had two (2) recruits ring out, so we're still recruiting. The recruit program is tough...


See our 'Bell of Shame' below. These are the recruits that have rung out.



Let me know if you have an interest.




We salute [SS]Grunt & [SS]Showstoper proudly serving in Iraq!

No, it is not a joke. It is a dedicated group of gamers with a disciplined approach consistent with their military background.

Thanks for the props.


No, it's not a joke, just a lot of guys working together to make everyone's gaming experience a better one.


Still recruiting for one squad position.

I'm betting that no one in this clan is:


A. Married

B. Has children

C. Insert anything here


I'm sure you guys are very good at what you do but I'm guessing 90% of people cant "measure up" to your clan standards or cant sacrifice the time.


I stopped playing Everquest after a year and half stint because it got to be too much like work...kinda like what your rules are for playing a game.


Good Luck mates!
