Canadian Killing Squad Hiatus until next SOCOM

Recommended Posts

To my fellow [cKs] members, and the UF community

 

 

I regret to inform everyone that we, the Squad Commanders have come to a unanimous decision to cease all clan operations and proceed with a hiatus until the next SOCOM is announced.

 

Since the end of SOCOM 4 we have tried our hand at multiple games, spanning throughout the PS3 and PC and we have been unsuccessful at establishing our clan comfortably in a game, similar to the way we did SOCOM.

 

We tried Battlefield 3, GRFS, CSGO and most recently Black Ops 2. Even though we were able to get activity on BO2 we didn't feel it was suitable for the long run and we don't see there being a game released anytime soon that will suit what we are looking for.

 

We are a SOCOM clan, and we need our SOCOM so we can have our cKs back. The adrenaline pumping as your the last one alive against 2-3 others. Planting a bomb and you along with 1 other cKs trying to defend it against an onslaught of enemies, getting your ass yelled at if you break apart from your squad to do stupid shit. Thats cKs.

 

Sniper corps, Squads, substitutions. That was cKs.

 

Having to wait months, maybe even fucking years to enter the clan. That was also cKs.

 

We're not made to be a COD clan and theres nothing wrong with admitting that. We're not a clan that is going to flourish on a popular game that has millions playing it.

 

Rather we are a clan that excels at mastering a tactical game and being one of the best in a more tight-knit community.

 

We are a tactical clan and we are not suited for recreational respawn gaming.

 

Unfortunately it took the painful process of trying to establish ourselves in those games to realize it.

 

 

 

A Sony executive recently said that there will be another SOCOM. We're not making this decision based off of that, for all we know there may never be another SOCOM and if thats the case then that is fate.

 

However, the gaming industry will keep transforming and as we edge closer to the next-gen, maybe, just maybe SOCOM will have a place in gaming again. If/when that time comes, we will rise again.

 

 

Even though we are taking a hiatus, we are not shutting the door on everyone. Those who want to wait with us that is fine. Your free to play your games together as you currently are and we will keep the website/forums up and available the entire time. However you will still be required to follow the COC so long as you dawn the [cKs] tags.

 

The leadership corp will remain in-tacked over the next few years. We will be here ready to get cKs going when the next SOCOM does arrive (likely on the PS4).

 

 

 

Finally,

 

 

I want to thank everyone for their patience and support over the last 2 years. Its been very difficult for cKs and it has taken its toll, not just for us either, but for many of the once-SOCOM clans. Uprising recently disbanded as they are going through the same.

 

 

I can't personally guarantee anything. Its going to be a very long wait and I know that surely this will be last for many of you. What I can promise though is that if a new SOCOM does come out, I will be here ready to lead it along with a core of patient, loyal members.

 

 

We wrote the book for success back in Confrontation. I look forward to writing a better version of it in the next SOCOM.

 

 

Thank you for your time, god bless.

Dang another old school group down. Sad to see you guys closing shop for the hopeful temporary future. I was hoping more people would latch on to BF3 from SOCOM but it never caught on. Hopefully it isn't too long we have to wait for another. Take care guys, it was always fun gaming against you.

Ya battlefield was fun but like more of the games now no clan support. there is a matching making system in battlefield but has yet to be activated for whatever reason. We will be back. Just when is the question. Most of the guys are all staying and we are pretty much turning into a Club I guess. I just really miss the thrill of my heart pumping when your in a game and the last one alive. And the last game that did that for me was Confrontation. And then again in Socom 4 only in the last match of Endurance. Sense then nothing but board-em.

Sucks to hear that but I understand. I feel like I've just been wandering the wasteland so to speak, trying to find that old socom feeling in something. I'm excited about the incoming announcement of the ps4. Hopefully some kind of tactical shooter that is at least decent will be shown or maybe shown at e3.
