The term "Clan" for gaming teams likely [[TropeNamer came from]] ''{{Battletech}}'', which featured ritualistic warring factions known as clans. With the release of multiplayer functionality with ''{{Mechwarrior}} 2'', amongst the first [[CompetitiveMultiplayer Deathmatch]] styled PC games, players formed groups based on them as a way to act out fantasy battles. Completely original clans popped up soon after. Nowadays, lack of official clan infrastructure is seen as a serious flaw in new multiplayer-centric games and many successful clans have extensive out of game activities including websites, merchandising, product endorsement and offline public relations events.

* ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'' depicts four of them. The titular Noob guild, just big enough to form a single PlayerParty, that has been shown playing other games in a bonus ''VideoGame/RunesOfMagic'' themed episode of the webseries and an audio episode. Relic Tracker's guild is in a similar situation. The Roxxor and Justice guild are much bigger and structured clans whose top PlayerParty is the only one ever seen. Justice's includes the person taking care of their admissions and she's seen rejecting any candidates that have a job and/or a significant other in real life because of the availability requirements.

* ''[[MountAndBlade The Napoleonic Wars DLC for Mount and Blade: Warband]]'' has the players organised in regiments with a strict hierarchy and chain of command. True to the spirit of the game and period, infantry regiments usually form line and fire at each other. There are many "linebattles" on YouTube.
