About the UCF
You have reached the home of the UCF, the United Confederation of Factions, a multigaming, multinationality clan, established in October 2001. Although we play several games, Star Trek Online is the game we have divisions in.
Winning clanwars and clanmatches is great, but having fun playing the games we play is our most important goal. Therefore it is not important how good you are in playing, comradery and teamspirit/teamplay on the other hand is, this doesn't mean we don't go for victory.
The organisation in the UCF is simple but effective. The UCF is lead by Jelma who together with Jim and the Flag Officers takes care of the general clan issues like administration, Clan management, etc. The Senior Officers consists of people who take care of arranging wars, setup trainings, etc. These people together with the other members are very dedicated to the UCF and each other.
People who cause havoc, argue, create unrest and use bad language will be dealt with immediately and if nessessary be thrown out of the clan. Promotions are based on time in the clan or by the amount of points a member has gathered.
For communication between players we use TeamSpeak.
If you are playing Star Trek Online and you're wearing tags, being present on teamspeak is mandatory.
To cover expenses for the services we don't ask for a contribution fee. A donation is always welcome of course.
New members enter a trial period for 2 weeks. The sole reason for this is to let you decide if the UCF is something for you. More information can be read in our general guidelines and statutes.
If you want to become a member of the UCF, all you have to do is click on "enlist". The only thing we ask from you is teamspirit, seriously interested in participating in the UCF and have respect for the other members.
