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!

    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.

    A BF3 news note from General_Alvin
    Now that the first DLC, "Close Quarters" has been released TG runs one of it´s 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!

  • 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!
