The Devils Turn 3! [Front page blow out]


  • The Devils Turn 3!

    April 29th, 2010, marks the 3 year birthday of Tactical Gamer's 6th Devils Brigade! Come join us on Saturday May 1st, 2010, on the Tactical Gamer Project Reality server as we bring in the new year with Teamwork, Agility, and Leadership. Bring your own beer.
    <-O'Niell's Note: That's "3". Not "131". :D

    The 6th was founded based on the actual Devil's Brigade (1st Special Service Force), which was a joint American-Canadian commando force established in 1942. The idea came in a gestalt to our founders, eGoatBoy, who is Canadian, and Wimpinator, who is from the US. Shortly after, these two evil geniuses picked up several more members from the US and Canada and began plotting the imminent invasion of TG. However, they implicitly understood that we couldn't just limit our roster to North America and soon began picking up members from all over the globe.

    The 6th Devil's Brigade is about having a lot of fun while doing everything we can to help our team win! The squad will strive to exemplify the "TG Way" and looks to increase the enjoyment of the game, not just for it's members, but for other players on TG servers by demonstrating maturity, good gamesmanship, and leadership. The squad will consistently operate with a "team first, individual second" mentality, but will also look to leverage the talents and creativity of each member.

    The 6th Devil's Brigade will function as a competent ground based unit, but the squad will also routinely look to complete missions and fill roles that have a high-value to the team, working to be a force multiplier. If the 6th is said to have an operational focus, then that focus is doing the "other things" in game that go overlooked.

    Our focus is primarily the BFx series and mods.

    The 6th Devil's Brigade officially went operational on 29-Apr-2007.

    The 6th Devils have many secrets. Some so secret they are guarded in a tomb at the bottom of the world by none other than Skud and Wickens. 24/7, 365, Skud and Wickens provide security for some of the highest classified information ever. But Skud will share some secrets with Tactical Gamer.


    It's a Devil's tradition to celebrate the number 6. So, to that end, we officially call the 6th, 16th, & 26th of every month one of our Devil Days. Yes, that would be three 6's in a's just so obvious!

    What does "Devil Days" mean? It means we adjust our RoE & SoP to favour some team unity for the day...a little quality time for us. The primary purpose is so that we the Devils, get time with we the Devils. So, the #1 goal of the day is seek out and get time in with fellow Devil's. That simple.

    But this doesn't mean we don't play with our Tactical Gamer brothers! On Devil Days we love to get out and show the community what we're all about! So the next time you're twiddling your thumbs on the 6th, 16th, or 26th, join the PR server and come play with us!


    Thousands of years ago, on the slopes of Mt. Doom, The Devils thought up bi-monthly avatar themes. Well, actually, I think it was A.WICKENS, but I'm Skud and I'll just steal the credit. Anyway, we started discussing possible themes and who should be what and why.

    We have a special forum where we discuss possible themes. A poll is made, and we then choose a theme. We then take said theme and apply who should be what and why - what character traits apply to each Devil? Some are not so flattering. Some quotes best illustrate who winds up with what:

    "Or, he could be Sundance to my Butch."
    "Hell, just put a picture of a dead guy in PR and that's me....Just slap a emblem on it and that's me doing what I do best all game."
    "Nardini - Stormtrooper, for his unyielding ferocity in the face of stupidly overwhelming odds, demanding that his squad complete his ludicrous objectives. "
    "I'll take Boba Fett if that's ok with everyone else, Skud you are at least 3.5 times the player I am so I accept the nomination."
    "Count yourself lucky Don, I'm some fat bearded guy who gets shot in the ass."

    Themes to date: Cartoon Characters, 80's TV Shows, Muppets, Cowboys/Indians, Video Game Characters, Empire/Rebel Scum.


    Turns out we're not going anywhere. Over the past year we've seen quite a few In House Squads come and go. We're not going anywhere anytime soon. As of right now, we remain highly active in Project Reality and Tactical Gamer's newest phenom Battlefield Bad Company 2. And the future? Looking pretty fiendish, if you ask me.

      Congrats, guys. Wouldn't expect anything less from you. I miss the days when...yeah. Miss a lot of things.
      Rest in Peace, Counter.

      Three years old...that's usually when big boys throw away their binkies and blankies, in't it? :row__528:

  • Elite Dangerous: Guardians
    Elite Dangerous is soon to experience a much anticipated update known as “Guardians.” It is expected to bring many new features and mechanics to the game as a whole. These features include NPC crews, small fighters, equippable hangers, and even a tourism industry.

    During Gamescom, Elite Dangerous fans were given much information relating to the upcoming Guardians update. As a person who has been watching the game change, it is definitely a lot to take in. For the sake of the reading audience, allow me to try to keep this...

  • TG is going to Tanoa - Apex of ArmA 3 begins July 11
    Apex DLC is Coming To TG Servers

    Get ready for the ride to the pinnacle of ArmA 3. Bohemia Interactive is releasing their latest achievement on July 11th featuring a Pacific jungle island Tanoa, a plethora of new features and a rich and long awaited set of assets in the ArmA tradition. will be hosting this content upon release. We will be churning out missions immediately!

    Tanoa alone is impressive, with 5 airports, its single main island, four minor islands and a bunch of “mini” islands it’s set to expand the ArmA empire to include much more land/sea battle capabilities and add elements of small island south pacific tropical exotic-ness to the ArmA franchise.

    Covering over 100 square Kilometers (about one third of the original ArmA Altis map) it is a tropical island paradise. Set in an idyllic setting it’s not militarized like Stratis, Altis or many other maps and this one is truly a clear slate for scenarios. With that said it’s not without its history, exploited for its rich mining productivity the island has been industrialized and ravaged for what looks like decades. There is a new faction, "The Syndikat", a local criminal organization with deep roots on Tanoa. This initial primary faction is made up of armed thugs and ex-paramilitaries, and is involved in many illicit operations throughout the region. Armed with mostly ‘classic’ weaponry such as AKs, RPGs, and 9 mm pistols their knowledge of the island and local hiding spots will make them a formidable enemy when the DLC is released.

  • Exciting CitizenCon Reveals and How Trolls Helped Push the Community Over 1M Backers

    Some People Live Under Bridges

    There has long been a small but ongoing undercurrent of Star Citizen criticism in some corners of the internet, mostly consisting of (IMO, baseless) accusations of "vaporware", "scam", etc. Apparently, in at least one case (Derek Smart) they have gotten so bad recently that Chris Roberts felt the need to publicly reply. Prior to this, I had never even heard of Derek Smart, but it didn't take me much research to find out that the guy is basically a professional troll. Apparently, once upon a time he had developed a couple games, that many people panned as unfinished and pretty bad in general. So, unable to achieve success on his own, he has apparently turned to latching onto more successful projects in a sad attempt at keeping his own name relevant. And seeing as how I had never heard of him prior to this drama, I suppose successful troll is successful. Although I really can't get my head around why anyone would set out to make that sort of name for themselves.

  • Elite: Dangerous - Horizons

    Frontier Developments released Elite: Dangerous last year and is now getting ready to release a new season of updates entitled Horizons. That’s right, I said season, not expansion. Frontier has been releasing new features and updates to the game on a periodic basis over a long window of time that they refer to as a "season". The base game released as a single season and we saw a few new features, ships, and other items added to the game.

    If you have been paying attention to the game, you might have seen that some of these updates included the ability to form wings with other players (Wings Update), the ability to pledge with and support a minor power (Powerplay Update), the upcoming area combat (CQC Update), and eventually the Ships update which will bring the current total number of ships up to 30; or 31 depending on if you have Horizons coming to you in some fashion. This will bring Season One (or up to patch 1.5) to an end. Don’t worry if you did not buy Horizons, they will still patch and update the base game and you will still be able to play. You will just not get to enjoy some of the newer features that this new season will bring.

  • ArmA Insurgency New Life and New Blood on Altis
    "Pandora: The Insurgency" Unique version hosted at TG

    Keen on tactics and strong team based play? Stop by’s Insurgency server for ArmA 3 and join the team as we take on the insurgents on Altis. It’s a 24/7 job. No MODs and no requirements to get in on some amazing ArmA 3 action. Join us today!!

    Built on a persistent framework it calls troops to join in the fight to clear the island of Altis of a scourge of insurgents. These aren’t your average insurgents; they possess skills and weaponry that keeps the best squads on their toes. Their flanking tactics and relentless aggression are legendary. Anti-armor capabilities that keep the armor in the rear and, squads need to take special note that “noise” in a region with other enemy cells nearby may cause those cells to activate and respond to the threat. So small cells that seem “easy” to clear suddenly become beehives of insurgents attacking and flanking a small expeditionary force....

  • Project Reality Server is Back!
    As some of you saw today, the PR server is back online!

    We will be running the server on a part-time basis, most likely 3 days/nights a week, possibly 4. It is our opinion that this will work best in lieu of running the server 24/7 and having it sit empty most of the day. Additionally, the last time we tried to re-boot the server, we had big issues with getting people to help the seed the server. It is our hope that with a schedule that is known for the week, everyone will look forward to the days that server is up (much like we all looked forward to Thursday password nights) and the server will be full very quickly.

    So, what's the schedule? Great question! We don't know yet. The admin team will make a post later this week with specific dates and times, but the weekend is a pretty safe bet for right now.

    In the meantime, if you have any questions or suggestions, please get a hold of the admin team in the Contact An Admin forum.

    Look forward to seeing everyone on the battlefield!
