Community Spotlight: Eye on TG!


  • Community Spotlight: Eye on TG!

    Welcome ladies and gentlemen to the first, of many Tactical Gamer "Community Spotlight" articles. This article serves as the first in a series of articles that will soon transition into a "Month in review at TG" series. This series was created at the behest of Apophis himself during conversation and I look forward to seeing it grow. So, let's get started shall we?

    DayZ has become a massive hit here at TG, to the point of us prepping to officially support the mod on one of our own ARMA II servers. It was brought to my attention that several very talented writers are creating very detailed, near in character after action reports for this mod and I wanted to start bringing them to fore front. See the links below and give them a look:

    BulletLogic's "So I was there..." AAR
    "So I was there.." is Bullet's first major posting here at TG's forums and it's an amazing read. Let's all make sure to support him and push him to continue writing great stories for DayZ!

    Bl1P's DayZ Misty Mountain Dancer Fan Video
    Looking for a funny little fan video made by one of our own? Look no further then "Misty Mountain Dancer by BL1P!

    What else is new at TG?
    "Ten Ton Hammer" calls this "The Year of the Gun" and we agree. With Dust 514, Planetside 2 and Firefall all coming out the year of the MMOFPS stands to bring 3 groundbreaking MMOFPS Games into the world. TG plans to support all 3 games with forums, in-game clans and the like.

    Planetside 2
    PS2 has already gathered a lot of momentum here at TG, thanks to johnflenaly, TG's PS2 forum moderator. Head on over if you're interested in PS2.

    Firefall is now in public and open beta and has been for some time. It's a Quake-like shooter experience with a deep story line featuring an out of game "manga", staged content releases, and a dynamic world. If Firefall sounds like your cup of tea then take a look here:

    Dust 514
    Eve Online is very much alive at TG, though only in small number, we are still very active and conducting combat operations and scouting daily. With Dust 514 just around the corner, I've requested a new forum be created to support it. Being a Console title though, this will be something new for TG'ers to get involved with. Any questions or comments about Dust 514 can be directed to Damion Rayne.
    Eve Online Forums:

    A BF3 news note from General_Alvin
    Now that the first DLC, "Close Quarters" has been released TG runs one of its BF3 servers exclusively with the new maps and game-modes. The new game-mode "Conquest Domination" offers new tactical challenges that are sure to keep the community busy. The DLC also offers new weapons and assignments sure to keep the Battlefield franchise relevant in the TG community for a long time, especially with the upcoming DLCs to be released at regular intervals this year.

    What else is coming?
    Stay tuned for Video's and articles related to Planet Side 2, Mechwarrior Online, Dust 514, and more from the TG Content Development Team!

      Thanks for the great write up! I may have to see what all the fuss is re: DayZ. Still looking forward to PS2 the most though.

  • Urgent Announcement Regarding Tactical Gamer
    by Apophis
    Tactical Gamer has been through many incarnations over the years. The community was originally built back in 1996 and has been through a couple re-brandings over the past 24 years. We had some fantastic times with the original Quake 2 LMCTF environment and really started to solidify the purpose of the community with the launch of the original Counter-Strike. We’ve had a fantastic run over the years but all good things must come to an end.

    It brings me no pleasure to announce that Tactical Gamer will be ceasing operations on February 29th, 2020. There are a multitude of reasons why, but suffice it to say that the gaming landscape has changed drastically and brought us to an era where people have been pulled away due to different priorities in life and that has affected our ability to manage the community in a manner consistent with its founding purpose. For those of you who have helped the community survive through the Supporting Member program, I can’t thank you enough. Without you this dream would have died many years ago.

    Next Steps - For those of you with Supporting Memberships, please use the opportunity over the next month to log into your PayPal accounts and cease payments to Tactical Gamer. I am going to attempt to do a bulk-cancellation on the 29th of February, but I’m not sure how well that is going to work. You will also want to make sure to download any files or content you have in your web hosting accounts (if you have taken advantage of that in the past) as well as any email you have on our systems that you want to keep. I am going to continue to renew the domain registration, although what I do with it and where I point it has yet to be determined.

    In closing, I want to thank everyone for over two decades of great gaming and especially thank those that have taken on the relatively thankless Site/Community/Game Officer roles and everything you’ve done to help keep the community on track.

    All the best...
