We have been around since 2004 under a different name (European Server Clan), now in January 2013 it was changed over to Paragon eSports and we've had a number of improvements such as the new website & Game Servers.
We currently host over 25 of our own servers covering most game modes and we have our own Teamspeak 3 server with plenty private rooms that can easily accessed and filled so you won't be bothered by random people! We regularly post news and updates about the game, community & events. We also have a cool nifty match result system on our website to record how well you have been doing over time and display your team activity to all.
So whether you're looking for a clan-style environment or a highly competitive and academic atmosphere then Paragon might be the place for you!
Currently we have about 25 active members now of this posting, many others have either stopped playing Shootmania or got kidnapped (we will never know ), but after a month of recruiting we would probably expect another 5 members joining.
So if you are interested in joining be sure to join us on these conditions:
- -Your active on Teamspeak. This is not only the place we chill out and have a banter, but this is the best way to communicate and the best way for us to get to know you and become friends!
-You are fun and a nice person to play with.
-Your active on our forums, offering suggestions & constructive criticism/opinions on various topics to help further the development of our community.
-You are a respectable person and respects others, helpful to new players within ShootMania and nice to current Shootmaniacs!
If you have a problem with any of these conditions then I am sorry to say we cannot accept you.
First thing I want to mention is your team is your responsibility, from the Team name to the setting team up on ESL to signing up for cups/tournaments and to uploading results to our 'matchticker' on our website. Once your team is all set up I ask you to get in touch with myself 'Wabbitface' who will create your team private channel on Teamspeak and create a squad on the website for the matchticker.
Once that's done your team is now officially a Paragon secondary team. In order to become a Main team and be featured you must take part in regular online cups & tournaments and Paragon Management can consider your team.
Seccondary Teams - While representing Paragon you can add your team title after your name.
Primary Teams - Can display their team title before their name and will have access to their own private server which will also display their team title with the player lineup in the description.
