Welcome to the =AaTc= Website
We are the American Army Training Corps clan. We have a passion for playing video games. We aim to be the best but the most important thing to us is to have as much fun as possible. We love to mess around and enjoy ourselves as much as training and competing. Come join the family!
To All New Or Returning Members
Returning =AaTc= Members
The new Battlefront is coming out soon! If you are a returning AaTc member after leaving during the SWBF1/SWBF2 years, please post in the "Welcome Center" just like a new member. After you talk to the admins they will discuss what your rank will be in the new AaTc rank system. Make sure you acquaint yourself with all the new rules and other procedures going on.
AaTc Thanksgiving Party
We will be playing on SWBF1 to celebrate Thanksgiving and have a chance to enjoy our favorite game together.
So, set a reminder in your phone or on your calendar for Friday November 27th Starting @ 7 PM CST. If you need to be a little late, that's fine. EABF will be out by then but let's have one more fun holiday on our favorite game. This event is open to the public.
We Are A Syndicate Clan
How To Play SWBF1 Online

Unfortunately, Xfire is no longer in service. It was a huge part of the SWBF community and we will remember it fondly. Hopefully our old AaTc friends will be able to find us through other means.
Rank Seniority System
With November promotions about to be posted, I've decided to adopt a seniority promotion for those who are not really promotable. This will reward you higher ranks for staying active and being involved by giving you more say in what goes on in the clan.
It will work like this: All officer ranks will be able to advance to the 10th version of that rank. This could happen once a month with promotions or if the admins notice a commitment to the clan through activity and loyalty. Members can also be promoted out of any number of their rank. So a Rank 4 Assassin could still be promoted next month to Captain. You don't necessarily have to wait until reaching the 10th level of your rank to be promoted to the next, although that may happen. This may be extended to Enlisted ranks as well.
Main Admin Rank Changed
AaTc Steam Group
Updated Links & Downloads page/Promotions on hold
I have updated the Links and Downloads page with a lot of my custom SWBF1 maps from my mediafire account. If you have installed SWBF and want to tryout some maps feel free to try them. Some of those will also be used on clan nights.
Promotions are on hold until the end of October.
New Awards Added
Bronze, Silver, and Gold Recruiter awards along with the Legend award were added today. Keep working on those awards for the end of year award ceremony!
Epifire Promoted To Main Admin
Epifire, a member of AaTc during the SWBF1 era, and founding member of the new AaTc, has been promoted to Main Admin! He is an excellent leader and deserves everyone's respect. Congratulations Epifire, the clan believes you have what it takes to join the lineage of the leaders of AaTc. Serve your clan well!
Two New Awards and an Official AaTc Awards Ceremony
How Promotions Work
Alright, so in the past promotions were either given in regular intervals, or given based on activity and performance. In the new AaTc the promotion system will be a combination of both. Throughout each month I, and the other Tier 1's, will make note of who is being active on the site, who is making it to clan events (or trying), and who is showing excellent performance during clan battles. On the last Saturday of every month, those marks for each person will be taken into account, whoever has been active on the site, making it to clan events, and showing skill in our games will be promoted. Those who have not been active, will have to try again next month. Extra promotions or demotions can be given at any time by an Admin or RHM. Obviously, any large amount of inactivity without reason will result in probation, and/or demotion.
The same applies for officers, however officers can be placed in ranks where an officer is needed, rather than what the next rank is. Each rank has a job, and those who hold this job must accomplish the tasks the clan needs done.
So, if you want to be promoted be active and be involved!
Some awards have been added to the Ranks & Awards page. They are ranks recognizing seniority of each member. New Gen is for those who join between now and when EABF comes out, Original is for those who were members of AaTc during the SWBF1 era, and Relic is for those who were part of the CLJ clan before it became AaTc.
Officers Are Temporarily Squad Leaders
As you can see on the Ranks page, the highest enlisted rank is the Squad Leader. This is for newbies with the most seniority. As SL they will be assigned probably 2 or 3 new guys to mentor. They will be in charge of keeping up with the new members, helping them to get involved, personally inviting them to clan events, and things like that. Also, If we were to join a clan tournament or some battle where our entire clan is involved, the SL will be in charge of their assigned guys during the battle.
Since we are starting off with nothing but officers, all officers are temporarily assigned a side rank of Squad Leader, and as we get new recruits they will be assigned to each officer.
Once we have enough members, we will go back to normal operational procedures.
SWBF1&2 Clan Syndicate Up for Voting
Moving to EA's new Battlefront
Well, it looks like I am bringing back AaTc to join in on the new Battlefront game. We have long been a part of SWBF1. Now this old clan will rise again to play in the new SWBF! Hopefully we will run into old members who come back to play the new game. I have a feeling it'll be a big AaTc reunion. See you guys in the new SWBF. =AaTc= Forever
