Parent Gamers Wanted!

R.Borlax
Are you a parent who wants to join a clan but don’t have the time to drop everything at a moments notice to wage a clan war? Don’t want to take part in all of the mindless posturing and trash talking that comes with some clans? Just want to play the game with people who are in it for the fun, not the rankings?

Then join the Mamas and Papas [MP] Clan. We are a group of parents that are just interested in showing that parents can still be gamers.  We were founded in early 2009 and got our start with the game Call of Duty: World at War on the Nintendo Wii.  We are excited about making the transition to Modern Warfare 2 on the PS3, and we would love for you to join us.  This is your opportunity to get in on the ground level of the PS3 division of an already well-established and well-respected gaming clan. 

Since our clan started with the Nintendo Wii and we are also establishing a Xbox 360 branch at this time, console bashing and mindless fanboy trash talk will not be tolerated.  Like I said before, we are here for the fun of gaming, not for mindless trash talk. 

The only requirement to join is that you have to be a parent. Nothing else. There are no tryouts, attendance or ranking requirements. If you are a great player, then you are welcome to join, and if you are just starting and aren’t very good yet, then feel free to play and improve with us without judgment. 

Membership is open to everyone with no cap on the number of members. If you want to join just simply go to our website and register.  You will be asked to read and agree to our Membership Guidelines, Posting Guidelines and our Code of Conduct which prohibits glitching, hacking, and any other forms of cheating. 

Then you just need to tell us a little about yourself here, including that you are a parent: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://teammp.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2&start=0">http://teammp.net/ forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2&start=0</a><!-- m -->

Then post your PSN ID and add the ID’s of current members listed here:  <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://teammp.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=553&start=0">http://teammp.n et/forum/viewtopic.php?f ... 53&start=0</a><!-- m -->

Recruits must sign up on our website and make the required posts on our site in order to attain membership in Team MP - posting the information on this thread is not adequate.

If you have any questions please contact me or one of the other site administrators on our website.  We look forward to seeing you on the battlefield!!!!

    lol...maybe if I wasn't in a clan already...lord knows my clan mates must get pretty annoyed when i have to quit mid-game because my son wakes up from napping..lol

    LOL Bobduda!  That is one of the reasons the founder of our clan started it.  Just wanted some people to play with that weren't gonna yell at him if he had to leave mid match to attend to his children or get pissed off when people don't get positive KDRs.  This is a video game, not validation of my existence.

    Who ever said I stopped gaming?  LOL!  Most of us are part of the first generation that grew up as gamers and we will likely be gamers till the day we die.

    BUMP!

    Got several new members yesterday alone.  If you are a parent come join us!  We don't care how much of a nOOb you may be, and some of us are new to the PS3 so we are learning too.  As long as you play for fun and don't get angry if you don't win of if fellow clan members are getting up to speed than this is the clan for you!

    im 25 with three kids (8,7,and 5 months old. and i've been playing since the beginning of the cod4 days, i would join but i play on 360 so....... i guess when you hatch a xbox division of your clan then i would join. i have over 75 friends who play all the time and most are in clans but i just dont like the traditional idea of how clans are setup so i always tell them im unaffiliated untill i find the right clan.


    not to mention i never understood what the point in being in a clan is if you aren't playing for money. i wish i could find a clan or a local tournament for cash prizes. maybe someone could point me in the right direction?

    OT Good luck with your recruiting guys

    Bullet, we are trying to get a 360 group up and running.  We have I think 4 MPs who switched from Wii to 360 and I am trying to get one of them to head up the 360 recruitment because it seems silly for me to do it because I don't own one, just the PS3 and Wii.  Come check out our site if you want.  I understand your view point on clans, but that is what makes MP kick ass because we are not a typical clan.  Sure, we play the game together and talk about it mostly, but we also have a lot of other discussions on other topics, especially stuff relating to parenthood since that is the focus of our clan.  Also, we may all be parents, but we aren't exactly the most mature group in the world, so there is a ton of joking going on.  Even if you don't decide to join it is good to know there are other parents playing out there.  You could even post your ID as a friend of the clan if you want and not join.

    And Fuzz, thanks for the well wishes :)
