It’s a new year and as such it’s time to attempt brand new things again. What we are aiming to do this year is interview as many online gaming clans as possible and what better way to start things off than with South Africa’s only, as far as we know, female-only gaming clan.

Have we been in other clans before?
Robin: Been invited to join clans,but never joined due to the fact that most players spoke down to you (cause I was a girl) and made snide remarks when I was beating them.
What made us form an all girl clan?
Michelle: Most people will think that a room full of females would be a room full of drama and hormones, when in actual fact we are more laid back, understanding and get along very well.
We were given the idea to form the clan by Bradley Kirby of MWEB, great guy and mentor. He pointed out that girl gamers are seen as cosplayers and not gamers with actual skill, in general and in the competitive gaming industry.
We want to show South Africa that girl gamers can have wicked skill, look good and be as competitive as any guy across any genre and platform.
We shall be participating in the Telkom dogaming league 2014.
The members we have are all skilled in different genres across different platforms. This will be a test for us to teach and learn First Person Shooter(FPS) skills from each other, grow as teammates and friends and in time become a clan to be feared.
We are accepting new members in various genres and platforms to compete in upcoming events. Those who are interested can email us (viciousvixensza [at] gmail dot com) and follow us on Twitter
If you want to be the next clan showcased please send us your details, the member bio’s and the answers to some standard questions and we’ll get back to you.
