Brink Clans and Tournaments Update Incoming
Written Tuesday, November 15, 2011 By Richard Walker

Bethesda and Splash Damage have today revealed a sneak peek at an upcoming comprehensive update for Brink, which will introduce full clan support, ladders and tournaments. The update will be launching alongside a Brink beta site for clans and tournaments, where you'll be able create and manage your own clan from the dedicated profile page.

You'll also be able to challenge other clans and arrange clan matches, with ladders showing a clan's ranking so you can match up with clans of a similar level for a match. If you've organised a match, you'll be reminded of upcoming matches scheduled while you're playing Brink, which is handy.

The outcome of each match will then affect your standings on the Clan Ranking Ladder, and you'll also be able to participate in tournaments via the Event Ladders. These have customised rule sets that enable you to pick team sizes, specific map pools and so on. There'll be an update for Clans & Tournaments coming to Brink once its past the final stages of testing, which should be pretty soon. Keep your eyes peeled!

I doubt there is enough ppl playing this online to make two full teams LOL Game was terrible, but if they are just testing stuff, before releasing second one and learning on their mistakes, then I'm all up for it=)

They need to sort out the worlds worst AI before they think of anything else. Imagine wasting time and money into this project when MW3 and BF3 have just hit?

@13 lol I share the same thoughts. I absolutely loved ET and was hoping Brink would have the same effect, but sadly, did not. I wonder if there are ET servers still up...hmm

Nothing can save this terrible game. I feel ripped off getting it for around $14. I feel sorry for anybody who spent $60 on this piece of junk.

Seems like an interesting update but why on earth are they bothering with it now? Surely most of the people who played it have moved on?

Well if anyone wants a better reason to finally buy this game, it is on sale at Gamefly for $5.99 I just bought this and Duke Nukem for a total of $12.00. I know both of these games received some harsh criticism but for that price, who cares! There are a bunch of other games on sale for the same price too.

this is something that should have launched with the game.I dunno what they are thinking bringin it in now.Most people have moved on from this game and gotten rid of it by now.its a shame too cause this could have really been a great game if it wasnt missing key features and more content.

I really wanted to like this game. It just never gave me a reason to.
*should've played in 3rd person. If I make a badass character, I wanna see my badass character not just his hands. what a waste of a game...

It's things like this (while bullshit for taking so long)that make trading in games worthless.

Huh, I actually enjoyed this game quite a bit. I enjoyed that you had to have teamwork to win (no lone wolfing, which I think is why most players hated it) and you had to have strategy and a bit of skill to win online. Unfortunately, I knocked out all the achievements in relatively short order. And with nobody to really play cooperative with in that game... Well, there's no point to keep playing.

Still, I enjoyed the two-week romp quite a bit, and played nothing but Brink for those two-weeks.

I will miss you, misunderstood game. I will miss you "hated" game. I have no idea why you're hated and the people that hate you always refuse to list any specific examples of stuff they don't like (at least stuff that doesn't highlight them as unskilled gamers in every respect). You were great, even if others didn't see it. Thanks for all the fun times!

The best part of this game was when I traded it in for LA Noire and got a free Bluray of LA Confidential. Thanks HMV!

No Offence. But why-oh-why are they wasting money on this game? Hardly anyone I know plays this anymore and the missions were hard as hell with the stupid AI (which I find funny now. "Revive Me! he shouts but I go "Screw you, you don't revive me, I don't revive you. Simple as".)

If (and only if) they improved the AI's tendency to heal/revive you and cover you when you completed an objective, I would probably play this game again.

Good Idea. Bad Implementation. And that's my two cents.

Fix the AI so single player is slightly fun. It was a total exercise in futility, did QA ever even run the game?

Brink=Misunderstood game. I swear most of the people that gave it bad reviews were because they were mad that they couldn't lone wolf it. Yeah, the A.I. had some harsh problems, and there wasn't a lot of online unlocks and levels, but the time I spent playing this, was the probably the best game I've played in a while, besides my favorite game, Fallout 3. I do have to agree through, this is very late, and kinda pointless now... They need to make a sequel, fix what was wrong, and add more content. That would be GOTY I tell you.
