From one veteran Spartan to the another Spartan....
what can I say - I'm new, but I'm not knew. I've been HALO fan day one. This franchise has redefined shooter games overall. I believe it has and continues to be a pioneer for the genre. One of the changes in gaming that most excited me and really experienced like never before was when Rainbow Six arrived on the scene. The ability to chat and game together was INTOXICATING. The problem for me with current games....no one REAALLY chats and has that same kind of fun. It is my hope and desire to use this platform of social gaming communities to network with other like die hard fans and meet up in our virtual sci.fi worlds of insane run and gun and strategy FPS we have today. The systems today rock in my insignificant opinions, and the innovation is quite astounding!!
I'm really hoping for finding some fellow soldiers to rock with in the majestic, and magical universe of HALO 5 and the Master Chief COllection.
The 1212ROmans - "I appeal to you my brothers, by the mercies of GOD, to live you life as a living sacrifice - holy and acceptable...do not conform to this world, but be transformed....
JUST HERE TO HAVE A GOOD TIME!

Welcome to the sister company of Spartan Dads, Spartan Dads 2 and spartan dads 3. That's right, within days of the clans creation there was an explosion of requests from fun loving like minded individuals who were all looking for one thing... a great group of fellow dads to game with.
Let's face it... there comes a point in life where, sadly, you just aren't going to be able to keep up with the young-ins anymore... all of us in this company may have been, at one point in time, dominate at Halo, and / or video games in general. But those were the glory days. Now we're just senile old men with poor reflexes, careers, families, and (I think we can all agree), the best thing there is in life... kiddos.
Look, I'm not saying that we won't win some games. We may even wind up being one of the best Spartan companies in existence (though I sort of doubt it, as we just don't have the time to invest into video games anymore). But ultimately, we're just here to have a good time, and share in fun experiences / Halo 5 memories with others who are at the same place in life that we are. We've officially become casual gamers, and in our opinion, those are the best kind. Winning is fun, but that's not what matters most to us anymore... having a good time and relieving ourselves of daily life stresses by shooting bad guys is. And that's exactly what we'll do.
Here's hoping to network and get to know some of you in the months to come, and we look forward to gaming with you all and adding to our company!

1) Sign up for a BAND account online and/or download the App (recommended - iphone or android). We use it to communicate and schedule specific times to play together rather than use the waypoint forum. Our BAND account can then be found here.
2) Use your XBL gamertag as your screen name on BAND so others can easily identify you. Example: SNIPER HAVOC (Joe)
3) Once you're accepted on BAND be sure to introduce yourself in the "Member Introductions" section.*Currently there are 4 Spartan Dads companies and over 300 members. Manually adding all members on XBL, one at a time can be tedious and time consuming. One of our members has created a fast, safe and easy way to automate the process. More detailed instructions are within our forum here. That link won't be active until you've been accepted into SD Gamma
