The SneakyMonkeys were formed in 2006 to play Battlefield2 in a cheat free environment. We now predominantly play Chivalry: Medieval Warfare.
We're NOT about strict organisation, obligatory donations and mandatory practices - we're just here to play games and have fun.
Our servers have been consistently ranked amongst the top in the world for Chivalry, so we must be doing something right! :P
The clan operates by a majority vote system. Any change to the structure of the clan, rules and servers is made by majority based member polls.
This fairly unique system of democratic control helps maintain fairness and has led to great stability.

About the Sneaky Monkeys..
img src="http://sneakymonkeys.com/img/sm2.jpg" align=right hspace=15 vspace=5>
The =SM= clan was formed from members who've been playing multiplayer games dating back to the 90's. Including old members of Unreal Tournament clans such as SiN and SWF.
Later, after descendant clans such as TKF and SAF disbanded, some members joined us as we moved from Joint Ops to playing Battlefield 2 - our game of choice for several years.
We operated BF2 servers consistently ranked in the UK top 20, before eventually the constant namehacking and cheating of BF2 saw us close our servers and move to left4dead. 2010 marked a return of the clan to it's battlefield roots - however BC2 didn't offer the levels of teamwork and sustainability we wanted. As such we discoverd Chivalry Medieval Warfare and this has become the game of focus for the clan
The clan was created to provide as much of a cheat free environment as possible - we became fed up playing on servers that lied about their anti-cheat measures (usually because this area is notoriously difficult to maintain) or conversely accused people of cheating without any proof, so the servers were set up with the aim of being as secure as possible while also providing a laid back fun gaming environment.
Although we care more about gaming, socialising and fun; some players have performed well in league matches including ESL and the I-Series over the years and the clan is currently sposored by Sennheiser gaming UK (see the Sennheiser featured clans page). They make nice headsets. buy them!
The clan structure is one that is fairly unique in gaming....Rather than a leading council making decisions, instead major decisions are made by 'majority rules' member voting, where all members are equal and majority votes win (The clan leader; see below, casting a deciding vote in a tie) - not only has the been the fairest option it also seems to have helped against a lot of the bickering typically associated with clans and decision making. Also it means that any admin caught breaking the rules or abusing their powers can be removed.
The clan is currently led by MonkeyFiend, having taken over leadership from Foxx In Soxx in 2010 - please contact me on the forums/in game etc., if there are any issues or questions that you might have
We occasionally offer recruitment by invitation - if you are interested in joining, please let us know (in the recruitment section of the forums) so that we can keep an eye out for you.
We typically only recruit people over 16 years old, although do make exceptions. We do not tolerate racism. The clan usually has around 40 members, therefore recruitment is often closed or by invitation only. If you're thinking of joining it'd be a good idea to get to know everyone first
We'll not enter into recruitment with strangers - we don't want people who apply just for the clan tag and then never play or hang out, so after making a post about yourself, come play with us or join teamspeak and get to know us. We have a variety of skill levels in the clan ranging from relative beginners to competition level. We care more about personality than pure kill/death ratio. It's much more important to have a good group of people.
We don't allow cheaters or people who have previously been caught cheating in other games to join the clan, prospective members are checked out for prior bans through various streaming databases and other sources. Members have access to the pbbans databases and Evenbalance master lists. We do stream from the chivalry global banlists.
Even if the clan isn't something you want to be part of, please feel free to drop by the server, teamspeak or the forums :-)
Thanks for reading
Some of the clan from the new year meet up.
