The Initium Novum is a Movie Battles II clan that has gathered active committed players from both EU and NA regions to enjoy the game in a friendly environment. TIN was originally started by 8 people that just wanted to hang out and learn the game with each other. They weren't known to the community and had little in the way of exposure. Today TIN has over 50 members, 4 active running servers, a website, a very active YouTube channel, and of course a Discord server where you can come hang out with us in voice chat and text chat.
TIN has gained a reputation for being one of the few current clans partaking in both modes of the game, meaning we don't just focus on one part of the game. We are dedicated in both areas of the game and come together to help each other improve and enjoy the game. This is why many well known Open mode players and duelists have found a home here.
To be accepted into TIN, you don't have to be a pro, you don't have to be decent at the game at all. TIN is meant as a place that welcomes any skill and or experience level and helps you progress through the ranks with experienced teachers and players. If you are interested in joining, read up on the rest of our website, and check out the links at the bottom, where you can apply on our forums.
