Giant Bomb Heavy Industries (Update 1/8/2015)
The explosive interest in the clan has taken clan's "management" a bit by surprise, and we're struggling to keep up. It's really cool, thanks @jeff, but...
Here's our challenge. Giant Bomb Heavy Industries (GBHI) is currently a "Storm Clan", which means we can have up to 100 members. Monday, we had 100 members, though a large portion of those had been inactive for a long time - with the policy that anyone who has not been online for 30 days may get removed to make room for a new player.
In the last 4 days, we've received almost 80+ invitation requests. That puts us in a difficult position.
We could upgrade the clan to a "Mountain Clan" allowing us to invite up to 300 members. However, the upgrade is permanent, with no possibility to shrink down later, and all research and building costs would triple which is funded through the active clan membership. Because of the additional burden to the membership, we are not comfortable with this decision before we see how many players are willing to stick around with us in the long run.
The alternate option would be for someone to create a sister clan and join GBHI in an alliance. Members in both clans can communicate through the in-game alliance chat, and set up squads with one another. If someone feels comfortable creating this overflow clan, please step in and let us know, as it would be a great interim solution until the situation stabilizes and we determine if we can sustain a Mountain Clan or if this uptick in interest is temporary.
Members of the second clan would still be able to visit the main clan's Dojo to take part of our completed research and we will offer you support in setting things up. There is an investment of in-game resource and time to build a clan dojo for the sister clan.
Creating a second clan would be no easy task in order to create a clan to allow the additional requests that are still coming in.
(Probably worth mentioning here that there is no penalty to leaving a clan and rejoining another - beyond needing to rebuild your dojo key)
The short of it, we're still deciding on what to do about it. It seems that @refactored of the PS4 Warframe Clan VinnCo is also experiencing the same situation. We'll need everyone to be patient while we figure this out. For now, feel free to ask questions here on the forums. We'll be answering questions as we are able to.

New To Warframe?
I wrote a thing about how to get started in Warframe on this thread. Hopefully it will help you get a gist of this rather confusing game.
What's Are We Up to?
Currently we're playing the latest PC Update, Update 15.
|Playing||Dojo Goals||Dark Sector Status||Current Running Event||Notes|
Dojo Teleport Nodes - Need Resources To Fund Construction
Researching Sytrs Orange (Pigment Drop From Regular Trooper)
Being part of the clan means you should craft a Dojo Key as soon as you can. A Dojo Key will then grant you access to the Giant Bomb Dojo. A Dojo is where you gain access to:
- Research Labs and clan tech weaponry and gear.
- Trading Post the ability to trade Mods, Platinum, Keys, and Prime Blueprints/ Parts
- Other Clan activities (Dark Sectors)
This is a rough map with the red & green outlining the the things that are either currently in construction or will be soon. Fear not that if you get lost we have signs around the Dojo to get you on the right track!
Clans and Alliances can now contest special areas of Warframe space in Dark Sector Conflicts. Dark Sectors are special levels that award bonus credit rewards, a resource bonus, and XP bonus for killing enemies during these missions. By constructing a Solar Rail in the game and contesting a Dark Sector, a Clan or Alliance that is that successfully conquered or currently controlling this territory is allowed to set a tole, a tax and resource tribute on anyone that access the Dark Sector.
Update 14 introduced a new Dark Sectors Conflict PVP Mode in Warframe more Information about this and how our clan plans to get involved will be added in the future.
For a time the Giant Bomb Clan controlled Kardesh a Dark Sector found in Mars.
So what's the clan been up to? Check out my thread Giant Bomb Heavy Industries (PC Clan) Journal where he has been posting videos highlight a few of clan's accomplishments and endeavors. For instance did you know Giant Bomb Heavy Industries was ranked Rank 71st in the Cicero Crisis, or 85th highest contributing clan in the The Gradivus Dilemma? Not to mention the time we tried Drumming Them Drums Like The Wolf or took Vault Seflies... Form Voltron! We also for about 72-hours we held Mars!

Clan Size & Tier
The clan is currently a tiered as Storm Clan this essentially means that we can have a 100 clan members limit and our resource requirements for the clan's dojo are scaled for a clans with up to 100 members . The short of it is, so that our dojo resource requirements do not overburden the active members of clan we decided to remain a Storm clan during this time. Basically, the Clan Warlord reserves the right to remove any members that become inactive for more than 30 days. This is also to accommodate and ensure room in the Clan for new members.
Keep in mind
If you found out you have been removed from the clan: We are always open to re-invites, just because your being deleted this time, you can still re-join the clan in the future. THIS IS NOT A BAN. If you are reading this after you have been removed, just post another invite request to this thread. So if you were just taking a break from the game, feel free to ask to be re invited.
