Welcome to Hospco, we love you!
Join now! Take part in our EXTRA BIG ASS CRUSADE where we will utilize superior technology and blind faith to pummel the heathen Vanduul into submission.
Use an omnipotent being to justify the means to your end. Here at Hospco we say, “God wills it!” You can too!
HospCo (Hospitaller gaming community) was started six years ago by a few friends who wanted a place of our own to play team based games in a friendly, laid back environment. Where being a decent person was more important than numbers, gear, or rank.
The Hospitaller clan itself was originally formed in a mod for Mount and Blade: Warband. It started as playful joke against a large, strictly regimented clan called the Templars. Our small little group would take to the field, form our shield walls, and meet the foe head on. What we lacked in numbers, we made up for in teamwork. Winning or losing didn’t matter. It was just a blast to fight tooth and nail alongside friends against insurmountable odds. We certainly had no idea that this style of play would catch on.
People began to join and before long, the Knights Hospitaller became a force to be reckoned with. Soon it wasn’t just a few, but dozens of players fighting side by side in the shieldwall. Other clans cracked under the weight of our singular will. Proving further that a tighter bond and better teamwork is far stronger than individual skill.
Though our numbers have grown and waned over the years, the foundations have stayed the same. We fight together as one entity to accomplish whatever goal we set out upon. And we have a hell of a good time doing it!
Hospco has been and always shall be a community of team oriented players. Although we are all individuals, our primary goal is glory and success of the group as a whole. It doesn’t matter if you are a casual player, hardcore, or somewhere in between. Skill level always comes second to your ability work as a team to accomplish a goal. We do understand that some players perform best solo and that is perfectly fine. But we do not cater to people who join for their sole benefit. There are many other groups that are better suited for that type of gameplay.
Hospco members have worked together for over six years to create the feeling of being a part of something that is bigger than themselves. We have created a place for players that offers the same feeling you would get in a small town or village. Just like any small community, it’s success or failure depends on the effort that is put in by those within it. Lifelong friends have been made, and our members now come not only to play games, but also as a place to hang out, and maybe get away from the stresses of daily life.
A Hospco Knight (member) need only abide by basic rules that should apply to any given social interaction.
1.) General respect and consideration for others. Simply put, treat others the way you think they would like to be treated. Get to know the people around you and use that knowledge to engage with them. Example: If you don’t know the person, best not to call him an A Hole right away (unless he deserves it of course!)
2.) Use teamspeak with push to talk. We understand that not everyone wants to use VOIP, but it is easier for us to communicate and get to know members on the level that we expect, if we can talk to one another. You don’t have to use it all the time, and is only mandatory when the organization groups together for fleet Ops. What you get from Hospco is what you put in. Teamspeak is the medium that allows us to get to know each other and strengthen our bond. Success as a team comes when each man knows the next and can support one another to achieve a goal.
3.) Don’t cheat or exploit. It seems obvious but still has to be said. Play the game straight.
4.) Have a sense of humor! We like to have fun, joke around, and generally not take things too seriously.
