No More SPARTAN's in UNSC Clans


Recommended Posts




I get asked this over Discord from time to time and so just wanted to put out a written statement that others might be able to find in the vastness that is the internet. As we all know too, Discord is also not the best in long form discussion that this topic inevitably becomes. 

I'm asked first for my opinion before anything else and I want to share that first as it pertains to Halo clans and the goal of it all in the end. It adds context otherwise required to understand how I reach my conclusion. 

Clans are a social vehicle to get people moving to play games together for fun, to win or a set goal *conquest of other clans

Its truly simple as that, anything else is made up to add to this experience.

Spartan-II's and role playing as Spartans are unpopular now because most no longer serve a function outside of a regular clan member. Spartans are often associated with "Snowflake" a derogatory slang term for a person, implying that they have an inflated sense of uniqueness, an unwarranted sense of entitlement, or are overly emotional, easily offended, and unable to deal with opposing opinions. In text book definition it fits the attitude of most renown players who claim the titles. In addition to this, it often detracts from any group that adds "Spartans" without a specific use case or prioritization (MLG/HCS team, BTB team, etc.) and even then its often sullied by misconduct or ego. 

So, why are there no Spartans or clans making conscription processes making up lore as they go? 

My answer is because there is no need for these kinds of people to play and enjoy the game around.
