Got an invite for the EU clan. See you in Sanctuary.
D3 Giant Bomb Clan
@spiralcut: What do you think about clearing out some inactive people to make room for GB users who want to get in on the clan? There seems to be about 25-ish active players and the rest either don't play, or play solo and don't participate in anything else. I'm not even sure if there is a way to see how long someone has been inactive for. Something to consider anyway!
Also...join the Rift It Forward community!
This is an offshoot of the Multirift community, here you must always be prepared to open a rift for a clearer. Other than that the rules are pretty much the same as Multirifting (make a game, clear a rift, invite people). Here, though, the prerequisite to joining a game is always opening a new rift for the clearer.

The rules (To explain it a bit more):
*Always be prepared to open a rift for the runner. Do not enter a game if you cannot open a rift.
This community will only work if you make your own games too. So when you don't feel like clearing full levels, join some games. When you want to get some free rifts, make some.
- Create a Solo Rift and invite 3 player in the end, then you can join 3 games in exchange
This facilitates faster farming. Faster blood shards. Faster stuff.
Create a game on a difficulty of your choice.
Clear that rift almost to the end.
Post in the community chat what % you are at (can be found by hover over the rift progress bar).
Invite people, or accept party invite requests.
Get another rift made for you to clear, without using keystones.
Sit in the channel.
Look for rift posts.
Request an invite to the game.
Kill the boss without clearing any trash (get your bloodshards and souls fast).
Finish the quest, and open a new rift for the creator.
Continue on to the next rift in a few seconds!
I tried to join one of the clans, I believe it was squad three. There were quite a few spots open in it. I put in a request and after a couple days my request is gone. I'm assuming it was denied... there really isn't much information there. I'll try for squad five then.
@mb: Thank you very much for the tip. I joined the community and was in a clan in minutes. I actually wasn't aware of the community feature in this game. It sounds fantastic for keeping me engaged with a community that didn't exist to me previously. Social interaction was the one thing that had me engaged in MMOs for so many years in the past. This definitely breathes new life into the time I'll give Diablo 3 and it's expansion (that I just bought).
NA could use some cleaning out too to make room for people who are actually playing the game, and beyond that, actually want to play with and talk to other people. Even with 7 or 8 people on sometimes, that number may as well be zero. Everyone's just playing solo or doing other things most of the time.
The EU clan has been at capacity for a while now but thanks to patch 2.1.2 I can check last log in without spending half a day going though player profiles and the other half reevaluating how I spend my free time . We had people waiting for invites last night so I removed anyone that had been inactive for more then 200 days. If we reach capacity again I will move down to 150 days and then 100. Just thought I should mention it in case anyone logs in and wonders why they are no longer in the clan. If you have been removed in error, just reapply.
This edit will also create new pages on Giant Bomb for:Beware, you are proposing to add brand new pages to the wiki along with your edits. Make sure this is what you intended. This will likely increase the time it takes for your changes to go live.
