Long Live the Turtles.
Date of Founding: October 14th, 2018
Disbanded: April 28th, 2020
Revived: June 15th, 2020
Turtle 7eam was a clan which emphasises improvement and enjoyment in a competitive setting. As it stood we tended to recruit players with a goal of integrating them into our current squad and improve together as a team to climb up the division ladder. Whilst we've seen many members flow in and out, we managed, over time, to create a recognisable core group who were still prominent figures until the team's conclusion. We didn't often recruit players, but when we did, we primarily looked for people who worked well with the existing core and were willing to give us the commitment we were looking for with regards to leagues.
Whilst Turtle 7eam was only founded as a clan properly on October 14th, 2018, with the tag T7, the tag itself actually had it’s origins in the Autumn of 2017, where Joeey and Sira, along with others, formed a general steam gaming group named “Team 7”, after the fact that it had 7 members. In the Summer of 2018, Joeey and Sira began independently using the T7 tag within Mario Kart Wii, and, after the death of Crossfire, applied the tag to their newly created clan. After almost a year of using the "Turtle 7eam" identity, the clan briefly changed its name to ιnτεrgαlαcτιc, however, a short while later, the Turtle 7eam name and tag was restored.
During MKPS' Spring Split, it was announced that the team would disband after the season, and on April 28th, 2020, this was confirmed. However, the team was revived on June 15th, after merging parts of Team "τf", a friend clan operating out of Joeey's personal Discord server, and Into the Unknown, a CT clan set up by Joeey and Sira. The primary function of the clan is now to play in leagues purely out of enjoyment for the game, without worrying about climbing the competitive ladder, however any improvement we make is an added bonus.
If you'd like to trial for the team, make sure you check the current member counts at the bottom of this post. If we have a spot open for the division(s) you'd like to join, you should direct message Joeey (Joeey#9259) on Discord. We'll ask a set of questions (such as age, country, timezone, join reason), along with providing information about our criteria for "maining T7" and our activity quota. Once those questions are answered you will be given a vote amongst the current members of the division(s) you wish to join. If the result of the vote, you will then be put on a social trial, which consists of being active and integrating well into the server.
Criteria for Maining T7
RTs - Playing in every RT league and being interested in going into MKPS
CTs - Playing in every CT league and mixed league.
8D - Registering for Turtle 7eam on MarioKartCentral (and therefore playing every league with T7)
Turtle 7eam isn't a team that's gonna let people sit around and do nothing without a valid reason. Whilst we know people have real-life commitments and can't be around 24/7, we do accommodate these sorts of arrangements. However, we would like to see some activity wherever possible.
RTs - 20/24
CTs - 24/24
8D - 11/24
