One of the great advantages of being a member of the World Gaming Syndicate is our competitive involvement. We aim to develop a competitive atmosphere that puts our most elite competitors on the world stage, but also allows for all clan members to experience competitive play and develop their game. Below you will find the details on how our competitive system is run.
Purpose of the Alpha Elite/Bravo Squads & The Open Clan Developmental Squad
We are looking to build competitive squads that will compete at the highest level. These teams will enter tournaments and represent the World Gaming Syndicate on the largest stages possible. We hope the Alpha Elite and the Bravo Squads will make a name for the Syndicate in the competitive arena and demand respect from our opponents. We want the best of the best on the Alpha Elite & Bravo Squads.
We want everyone to experience what it’s like to play on a competitive team. We view our clan as a team and want everyone to have equal opportunity to experience competitive action. The Open Clan Squad serves the purpose of developing all clan members for competitive play and the opportunity to tryout for the Alpha Elite & Bravo Squads.
The progression of a soldier within our current competitive structure would be to work his way from the DEV team onto the Bravo team and then the Alpha team. There is no rule that says you must move up to the Alpha team, however the Alpha team should be comprised of the clans most willing elite players who fit in with the teams chemistry. The goal is to have both the Alpha & the Bravo teams playing at high levels.
SYN Competitive Captain System:
Competitive team captains are responsible for the success of the Alpha & Bravo Squads. The captain has the responsibility of appointing a co-captain to run the Bravo team. The Bravo team co-captain reports to captain who reports to the Senior Council.
Usually senior clan members volunteer their time to help organize and run the developmental squads. These teams are managed more by the clan itself and are viewed as a developmental stage before given an opportunity for an Alpha or Bravo roster spot.
SYN Competitive Team Eligibility:
1. Must be an official clan member. Cannot be an applicant. 2. Must meet Competitive Team Captain minimum practice requirements. 3. Must participate in Competitive Team Captain application process & tryouts.
1. Must be an official clan member or applicant (clan members are given priority) 2. Must participate in a minimum of 1 scheduled practice per week.

– Reach out to one of the Enlisting Officers to help you get setup on the DEV team of your choice.
SYN Competitive Team Roster Management
These squads are managed by their captain and they will decide who plays and when. Between the Alpha Elite & Bravo Squads there will be a total of 8-10 roster spots. We will have open tryouts monthly depending on roster spot availability.
How does a roster spot come open?
All Alpha Elite & Bravo Squads are expected to maintain a .500 win percentage. This means they must win 5 out of 10 matches on the regular (expectations will increase over time). They are also expected to play a minimum of 10 matches per month. If the Alpha Elite & Bravo Squads can maintain these requirements, the teams will stay together and no roster spots will be open.
However, if one of these teams falls below these minimum requirements, they will need to vote 1 player off of the team roster. At this time, the Competitive Team Captain will hold open tryouts to fill the vacant roster spot.
The player or players who were voted off of the team must wait 1 month before reapplying to the team.
If the team cannot find enough players from their existing roster to compete in a match, they will then pick replacement players from the existing Open Clan Developmental Squad roster.
This is a monthly review process on the 1st of each month.
Competitive Team Captain can make roster changes as anytime based on their needs.
These squads are managed by the appointed organizer and they will decide who plays and when. Each Open Clan Developmental squad will be made up of the maximum allowed roster spots (usually 8-12). Depending on the number of people interested.
If the roster spots become maxed but we still have interested player, we will need to sub players in and out of the roster.
If the team cannot find enough players from their existing roster to compete in a match, they will then pick replacement players from the clan.
