How long has X3M been formed?

6 years now…

 

Can you give a rough description how X3M came about?
Why was the name chosen and how many members did it have at first?

It kick started around January of 2000. Thomas, also known
as Blindspot back then, started the clan [Magic], which was mainly
into Unreal Tournament. 6 months after [Magic] was formed, due to the multiple
losses, the clan was disbanded. From there, I decided to pick up the pieces
and reformed the clan under a new name, X3M. We chose X3M because, well actually
it was [X3M]Shade’s idea… we just thought X3M sounded cool, for Xtreme!

 

So you were there from the beginning, ever since Clan
[Magic]? How about Blindspot?

Yes, I was. Blindspot became an [X3M] player for a
while, but after that he left.

 

So when X3M was formed, you were the leader already?

Well Shade and I were the over-all in charge so you
can sorta say that.

 

How big is X3M today? How many divisions do you have?

In total, we have 58 Clan members spanning 5 game divisions.
We have the Unreal Tournament Division, Dawn of War Division, Defense of the
Ancients Division, Counter Strike Source, and Battlefield 2.

 


What are some of the acheivements of X3M?

Our major wins at Tournaments sort of started in 2002. We won
the Christmas Affair in 2002… out of the 6 available prizes, we won 5 of them
for Unreal Tournament. In 2003, our Clan Elder Hero came in first for
the game HALO. For the GXL League organized by Playworks, we took first and
second for Unreal Tournament. We also secured top spots during the Midnight
Mayhem 2004, and we had a big acheivement just last year. Our Dawn of War Division
crossed the border into Malaysia to participate in the Malaysia Cup and took
home the top prize of $ 5000. Our Dawn of War Division went on to win World Cyber
Games National Finals and represented Singapore in the Grand Finals. We did
very well and came in top 10 in the International Competition.

Is there any clan which you look up to and try to model
X3M after?

Hmmmm not really, we base our decisions on our own initiative
and in fact we have become sort of a big brother clan in the gaming community
and more of a trend-starter in terms of clan management.

 

So how many members are in the management team?

Well, we have our Elder Team in X3M, consisting of 7 long-time
members, who have been with us through thick and thin… namely Hero, Shade,
Viper, Bloody, Sonjay, LG
and myself. These are the ones who make the overall
decisions and coordinate with the leader of each division.
