OverPowered Gaming: Defining Competitive Play

 

 

                    Credit: Swagger897

                        

Fellow Captains,

 

The Beginning

 

Many moons ago, a small group of players, including myself, saw a need in this community. Where could a player go where they could interact with other players, at or above their skill level, that have the dedication, the passion, and the competitive spirit within them that drives them towards victory on the battlefield? To fill this need, OverPowered Gaming was born!

 

Since our inception in February 2016, we have steadily grown, both in quantity, and in quality. We look forward to the continued growth of WoWs and OPG. OPG currently has 4 active clans: [OPG], [OPG2], [OPG3], and [OPGS]. The first 3 are competitive clans open to new recruits. [OPGS] is our social clan, only open to existing members. OverPowered Gaming is primarily based in the EST timezone, but we have members from all over the world. Our events are scheduled to accommodate as much of the continental United States as possible. 

 

What is OverPowered Gaming's Idealogy? 

 

We are a community of players dedicated to self-improvement and fostering better game-play through knowledge, camaraderie, and a willingness to learn. We believe that there is no limit to how OverPowered you can become if you keep an open mind to new tactics and focus on self-improvement. We are proud to have multiple prominent Twitch streamers, YouTubers, and Podcasters all call OverPowered Gaming their home. 

 

With professional gameplay being broadcast to the world, prepare to see new tactics at work, absorb new knowledge, and enjoy first class entertainment! We are both teachers and students here at OverPowered Gaming. Leave your pride and ego at the door and come in willing to learn. You will have no choice but to up your game if you put in time with this community of skilled and knowledgeable players!

 

How Can OverPowered Gaming Benefit Me?

 

Simple. Want a place to hang out, find a division-mate, participate in a tournament, or ask a knowledgeable player about a setup on a certain ship? This is THE place to be. We have intra-clan scrims multiple times per week at tier 8 to sharpen our competitive edge. We also host and participate in Fight Night, a tier 10 tournament extravaganza! Our members are comprised of the top players on the server. A significant amount of our players are on the leaderboards. If you are looking for a place to hang your hat and play with the best, come on in! 

 

While there are specific requirements to join the community as a full-fledged member, OverPowered Gaming is open to all. If you aren't quite able to meet the requirements to become a full-fledged member, it doesn't matter! Come in, hang out, division, and learn with us until you can! We have a sprawling TeamSpeak server able to accommodate as many players as needed. If you'd like your friends to come visit to take advantage of free voice chat, bring them along too! 

 

Sign me Up!

 

  1. Read the OverPowered Gaming: Clan Entrance Requirements to see which OverPowered Gaming clan(s) you qualify for. 
  2. Read the OverPowered Gaming: Code of Conduct. You agree to abide by this if you join as a member or visit our TS as a guest.
  3. Submit an application to the OverPowered Gaming clan of your choice. Please do not apply if you do not meet the qualifications. Exceptions will be rare and usually reserved for CV main players. There is no perfect metric for sizing up a CV player. If you think you have what it takes, go ahead and apply. Exceptions will be on a case-by-case basis and you must inform the recruiter that you are applying for a CV exception.
    1. [OPG] Clan Application-  Extremely Competitive
    2. [OPG2] Clan Application- Highly Competitive 
    3. [OPG3] Clan Application- Very Competitive
    4. [OPGS] Clan Application- Social Clan (Not currently taking applications- currently open only to existing [OPG]/2/3 members)
  4. After your application has been submitted, you will be invited as a guest to our Ryver (group messenger/forums) where one of our recruiters will set up an interview with you.
    1. If you do not see an email with a Ryver invitation within (2) days of submitting your application, please message me directly on the forums.
  5. After you have been interviewed and accepted, the recruiter will give you full access, set you up with in-game tags, TS tags, etc. 
  6. You will then be hazed, trolled, and injected with a cocktail of "skill" serum.
  7. Welcome aboard! :honoring:

OP scrimmages are a welcome change from the random queue. I'm so glad that I can be a part of them

I never spend my time with someone who doesn't think I'm wonderful or somewhat cash refundable.

You owe it to yourself and your stats to join OPG.  Lots of great people and sources of knowledge to get your skills up, get questions answered and best of all... have fun!

I've learned a ton while I've been here and had a ton of fun doing so.  Great group of people to be around, great clan events as well to practice and hone competitive skills, and there's never a dull moment.  If you want to get better and have fun doing so, you'd be remiss to not consider OP Gaming.

Current Grind:  Tier X: Yamato, Zao, Montana, Des Moines, Großer Kurfürst, Hindenburg, Moskva, Khabarovsk.  Tier IX: Fletcher.  Tier VIII: Ognevoi.  Tier VI: Leander.

Favorite Premiums: Missouri, Tirpitz, Mikhail Kutuzov, Scharnhorst, Atlanta, Błyskawica, Leningrad, Arizona, Texas, Imperator Nikolai I.

Favorite Tech Tree Ships: Roon, North Carolina, Bismarck, Chapayev, Yorck, Bayern, Cleveland, Budyonny, Konig, Clemson, Izyaslav.

I'll play carriers once my grandfather's ship USS Enterprise CV-6 is available.  Looking forward to renaming the USS Cleveland to USS Houston CL-81 for my other grandfather.

The best clan in NA. I joined to be with the best of the best and never looked back since.
