TG ArmA Pathfinder Restoration


  • TG ArmA Pathfinder Restoration

    The ArmA Pathfinders are a way of recognizing leadership. It is a prestigious position to hold within our community much like PCS is with Counter Strike. Pathfinders are leaders in and out of the server, and provide solid leadership as well as mentorship to all players. They are capable of leading missions, training players, and helping to foster this community as one of maturity and respect.

    Recently, the Pathfinders have fallen from the eyes of the players. When asked; “What is a Pathfinder”, the response most times was “ Admin”. The current Admin Team and Pathfinder Members have been working hard to revamp the entire program, and bring it to the forefront of TG ArmA.

    It is with great honor that I, as an Admin as well as a current Pathfinder, present you with the fruits of our labor.

    TG ArmA Pathfinder – Spartan
    • The group of players that make up the Spartan Platoon have show time and time again that they have the ability to lead this community. Be it in game, in the forums, or anywhere else they continue to step up and take charge.

    Spartan Motto: “With It. Or On It”
    • This is derived from the Greek outlook on war. You either return home alive with your shield; or dead on it. To do this tells others that you didn’t give up and fought with everything you had. To return home without your shield, was an offence punishable by death. The reason being, if you came back without a shield it meant that you had thrown it down and left. The way the Greeks fought, each soldiers shield protected the man next to him; it is a sign of loyalty and trust. By throwing down your shield, you have basically killed your fellow soldier.

    • This concept of loyalty to others, and trust is one that we wish to convey to the community with the Pathfinder: Spartan program. A Spartan member will not leave you on the battlefield, he will protect the player to his left and right, and he is loyal to the community.

    What does it take to be a Spartan?
    • To be inducted, a player has to constantly demonstrate the ability to be a leader. This isn’t just when the Admins are around. It is every time they are on the server. It’s not something that can be turned on and off. If a player has consistently shown that they have leadership qualities it will catch the eyes and ears of the current Spartan Members.

    What is required of a Spartan?
    • These are the simplest to ask, but the hardest to meet. Spartans must be as active as possible in both the game and the forum. They have to devote time to helping players new and old, and provide leadership to those on the server. It is required that all Spartans take charge and do the right thing in the absence of any other leader. They are the ones to step up and take control of a mess on the server and lead the mission to success. They all are capable of being “that guy” time and time again and making the game so much more by simply stepping up, and leading.

    Can I apply to become a Spartan?
    • Yes and no. While you may apply to the group, we ask that you let your actions speak louder than your words. Stepping up and leading missions, and leading the community will have more of an effect than any amount of PM’s or applications.

    What is a ‘Spartan Callsign’?
    • The ‘Spartan Callsign’ is a badge of office, like a Ranger Tab or Special Forces patch. It allows everyone to instantly recognize the Spartan members. Each Callsign is given out in numerical sequence starting with one.
    • Ex: |TG| Snuffy [Spartan 3]

    What else do the Spartans do?
    • Apart from community leadership, Spartans are also tasked with organizing and hosting events such as the “Pathfinder Invitational” event. The invitational event is a small event consisting of only Pathfinders and members of the community that have been personally invited by a Spartan.

    Is a Spartan an Admin?
    • No. However, Spartans are allowed to perform certain Admin duties such as Admin on the server, and enforcing SOP/Primer adherence.

    I am not an SM; does this mean I can’t be a Spartan?
    • No. The Pathfinder-Spartan program is available to everyone that passes the pre-requisites regardless of membership status.

    The Admins and Pathfinders are trying to raise awareness of this program, as well as help the community understand what it is that Pathfinders do. Our goal is to re-establish the Pathfinders here at TG ArmA, and provide solid leadership to all that play here.

    “With it. Or on it!”

      Even though you guys focus primarily with Arma if any of you venture into PR I would love to take part and be a part of your squad. I cannot run Arma II ATM due to computer issues but I am trying to get my godfather to participate on the TG ARMA II server and will definitely mention to him about the pathfinders.

  • 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!
